I like Mr Smith :) because he reminds me of Patrick Troughton and he isn't always yelling and going on all the time.

I think that writer for last series was very good as well.

Amen to that!

I saw Doctor Who from the Eccleston Doctor on and it always gave off just a little of a kid's show-vibe to me. Last season didn't. I enjoy Matt Smith more than Tennant too, less... manic.

I've now seen the first 3 episodes of series five and can't say I'm blown away by neither Matt Smith nor Ms Pond (don't recall her real name just at the moment).
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

It's Amy Pond, WannabeAngua. :D

Think the storeis have been good, just getting a bit fed up with Daleks. Might be an age thing but now it's like..oh no... its a Dalek (said in monotone voice) instead of "OH NO It's the Dalek, quick, hide behind the sofa!!! "

I tend to agree Spidey, especially since the new ones just aren't as intimidating as the old style. Do you think the Weeping Angels are likely to replace them as Dr. Who's scariest enemy?

I call the new daleks the hunch backed ipods.

Or orange flavour, vanilla flavour, blueberry flavour, strawberry flavour and lemon flavour.
Never got waht's so scary about daleks. They look like pepperpots and how can you conquer the universe without having opposable thumbs?

Maybe thay want to kill everything wiith thumbs.

Sure the weeping angels are scary but the only monster that gave me nightmares were the gasmask zombies. And it's not as if I was little when I watched those two episodes.

It was last week.

It was a petty bad nightmare, one of them. And some of the zombies had elephant trunks for some reason.

I'm too afraid to watch the Matt Smiths :oops: because the 10th Doctor was my first doctor, and I'm afraid no one will measure up to his gorgeous lunacy :( I'm very strongly resistant to change, I think (which is ridiculous when you're watching Doctor Who!). I didn't even like any of the companions after Rose. :wink:

How is Smith?

Smith is great! I like him a lot. I also like Amy and Rory as companions. Give him a chance - you might like him even better than Tennant. :wink:

By the way - the Vincent Van Gogh episode is one of my all time favourites. I cried buckets. :lol:

He's great, especially in later episodes where it seems more like he's doing his own thing rather than acting more like david tennant.

He's definatly quite a bit of a lunatic, at one point he keeps jumping back in time to give rory important info whilst holding a mop. And wearing a fez.

And that bit with the stripper cake.

And the whole of the episode the lodger.

He does serious well too, as someone mentioned on here, somewhere.

And, after all, he made sales of bow ties rise by 94%. That probably means something. Dunno what.

I suppose I may be a bit biased towards Matt (he was my first doctor) and I love david too (he's only a VERY CLOSE second) but I think he was a bit....uhh......right word.....right word...... too...... like this: :cry: sometimes.

Yeah, I don't like too much seiousness.

It was, for me, the scariest episodes as well (are you my mummy? freaked me out) but I was really thinking about recurring opponents rather than singular appearances. Personally, I always found the Cybermen to be scarier than the Daleks when I was young.

Yep the Cyber Men were scarier than the Daleks when I was a kid.

So...

If you could go to a garden centre and buy a life sized replica of a weeping angel for your garden, would you? :wink:

I'm afraid to say that Patrick Troughton was my first Doctor although I didn't really get into the series until Jon Pertwee took over. Get used to change some of us have seen lots :D
