The new Doctor geesa; is it only me but he doesn�t seem like a Doctor Who type to me. Maybe he is too young and maybe it is his accent.

I hope that his adventures take us a little further then North London and with a little luck, another planet.

Yeah, but that seems to always be the reaction to all the new Doctors. I remember that with many of the changed doctors, but they always seem to work out nicely. But there can always be a first.

So what did you think of the first Episode?
I thought it was brilliant. A nice shiney new Doctor for the new Century. Personally I think his accent is perfect for the character.

I guess it was ok; the 3D computer graphic has to be a plus compared the cheap monster suits of times before.

I could get used to this Doctor, just like the rest he is diplomatic, useless at fighting and never carries any guns. I was surprised the doctor gets himself into so much danger, and then depends on someone he doesn�t know to bail him out. He has a non James Bond style luck.

It was a bit silly but also funny (when it was trying to be funny), so I quite liked it. I hope the Cybermen come back. As for the Daleks, well, I always thought they sucked; they'll need a serious upgrade.

Seems like this current incarnation of the Doctor may not be around for too long:
