The writing in this season of the Doctor is the strongest yet. Apart from a low point of Daleks in Churchill's England, the episodes get better and better. My personal favorite is the one featuring Vincent Van Gogh (disregard the monster of the week).
Matt Smith is a delightful new version of the Doctor. I don't know if bow ties are in fact cool, but, if the Doctor wears it, it's cool. Let us hope to see more of at least this caliber.
I have been a Dr. Who fan since William Hartnell appeared on my parents B & W box TV, hiding behind the sofa when the Cybermen & Daleks appeared... plenty of nightmares!.
I was a bit hesitant to see the new Doctors, but I have really enjoyed the episodes when Matt Smith & Karen Gillan teamed up.
Rory the loser Roman soldier is in a class of his own, sometimes he's a buffoon, other times he really steps up to the plate!
Still trying to understand how "Riversong" could be Amy's daughter!
Good for a rainy day (or in Qld's case, a rainy living room!!)

Ok this is Steven Moffat (writer on eps The Empty Child, Girl in the Fireplace, Blink, Silence in the Library... you know the **good** ones) taking over where Russell T Davies left off.
New Doctor, new companion, new look, new decade and it's the start of a(nother) Golden Age for the show. The 13 eps in this set of discs have ups and downs (Victory o fthe Daleks I'm looking at you!) but each and every stand re-watching by kids and grown ups. That's the acid test IMHO.
In the climax of the first ep, the new Doctor (Matt Smith) finally gets both into costume and character and simply tells the Attraxi exactly who he is "so basically, run..." This is a symbolic and an iconic moment that this old time DW fan convinced.
People, this isn't some boring old TV show.... it's Doctor Who and it's still special after all these years.
loved it been a Dr Who since the 70s
Great Doctor in 2 great Steven Moffatt stories. The third ep on the Disc is "Victory Of The Daleks" - not the most plausible battle, I'm afraid, and a little too obviously inspired by Star Wars. Smacks of fan fiction. Otherwise ... GREAT!! :D
