Agreed. I started watching with Christopher Eccleston and didn't want to like David Tennant. *I fell for him*

The first guy I saw was the one I wanted to continue seeing. I didn't expect to just go "Oh this is BRILLIANT!" when I saw Matt Smith, but I did. I hope he sticks around for awhile.

Time of Angels/ Flesh and Stone was brilliant edge was on the edge of my seat from start to finish def classic. Vampires of Venice was pretty good to some creepy moments with a lot of humour mixed in. I really like the concept of next week episode so cannot wait.

Next weeks looks like a very interesting story; I'm really enjoying the story arc with the cracks and can't wait to find out what it's all about.

I'm convinced that later in the series we will see the Doctor revisit Amy in some of these stories; visiting 9 year old Amelia from ep 1 and Amy with her eyes closed in the previous weeks story with the Angels. Fascinating stuff! And apparently there is something in Ep1 that later in the series we will all wonder how we missed it...!

I was thinking the forehead kiss moment in the forest was the doctor revisiting her. Could be just a continuity error though.

that's the scene I meant! Notice he's wearing his jacket, while in the rest of the episode he's not. I'm certain he will revisit the young Amelia to tell her something and then visit Amy in the forest and "push" her to remember it; not sure why yet, but probably something to do with sorting out the cracks.

He's re-writing time, something he said was possible at the end of that episode

Seemed good so far, I wasn't sure what to think of Matt before but he was pretty good.

I wish Space would go back and show all the other seasons starting with Eccleston.

I've only seen the specials from Tennants run and would like to see what I've missed.

somethings gonna happen because of this crack and hopefully its gonna be confusing really bad (really bad idea not the situation as want the doctor to be in a bad situation).

As with any series there are good and bad episodes, thankfully the bad eps are few and far between; Doctor Who is a huge amount of fun and there are good laughs in every episode.

With Ecclestone you can look forward to a superb Dalek story as well as a two parter set in WW2 London; "the empty child" written by Steven Moffat, who is now chief writer for the series.

Enjoy

The quality of the writing this season is, in my opinion, the best it has ever been!

A shame then that the BBC felt the need to cut the budget this year!

They aim very high in terms of the scale of their stories! Steven Moffat's mind must be like Pandora's box (in that I would fear to delve in to it!) They just don't have the money this year to serve their imagination!

Hopefully the BBC will consider how popular the show is, how well it is doing overseas this year (it's doing very well in the US and New Zealand!), take a look at merchandise sales, and then decide to give it the budget it deserves next year! The new Sonic Screwdriver is going to be a big hit this Christmas! Sales of that particular item alone could fund the current season twice over I imagine!

The writing this year has been amazing but the direction has been a bit flat IMO.

We are now in touching distance to the final! Cant wait to find what amys crack is all about.

Episode 9 spoilers:
[Show spoiler]They killed a companion! Wow they donít do that often Amy reaction was amazing glad Karen got some emotional scenes. She did a good job, heartbreaking.

Yeah it's been a pretty strong season story-wise, but I've always been impressed with the writing of the show.

its had some big-ish stories and hope the ending that the series has been leading to is not an anti-climax

I an more worried about a cheesy ending. I dislike the ending to the The Empty Child/Doctor Dances and Silence in the Library /Forest of the Dead, Moffatís two big two parters.

I did not find that Vampires in Venice was that good (last episode I saw). I also am sceptical of these super arcs. I was not a fan of "Bad Wolf" and I am assuming the same thing is happening now with the cracks.

And as bad story arcs go, I wasn't exactly crazy about the S2 "The Doctor causes everyone in government to hate him, thus spinning off Torchwood" arc.
Believe me, Rose Tyler needs NO HELP WHATSOEVER from the screenwriters to be overbearing or repellent, and any artificial script embellishment to that effect is just superfluous.

(I know "Tooth & Claw" was supposed to set up our characters up as obnoxious, and succeeded beyond their wildest hopes...Who DIDN'T want to personally strangle Rose five minutes into the whole "Queen Victoria bet" running gag?
And every time she whips out her cross-time cellphone to brag her tourist photos to the folks back home in S1, you realize why it was better that every Classic-era companion was an orphan.)

Default Torchwood: The New World (Series 4)

Torchwood just got the go ahead for a new 10 episode series 4 order that will air in Summer 2011. Starz will be showing it in America. Both Jack and Gwen will be back for the 4th series. I just hope that WB/BBC Video still releases the Blu-ray.

Although I'm happy there will be a fourth series, I am disappointed with the direction it's taking in that now it will no longer be set in the UK/Wales, but in the US and around the world. For me, that takes away what made Torchwood great, the fact that it is a US style show based in Wales. It was a really sweet idea, but since Russell T Daveis has moved to the US, he seems to have lost the plot. Children of Earth was brilliant, but this seems to be a major disappointment. And what is also annoying is that it isn't just being funded the BBC, but also some American station.

Sorry, but I'm sticking with Steven Moffat and his amazingly superb rendition of Doctor Who because it's what it should be. RTD is ruining what DW stood for with this series of Torchwood.

Happy John Barrowman and Eve Myles are returning. Not happy it's no longer set in the UK.
