Default Dr Who series 5...What do we think?

Well ladies & gentlemen...

What do we think of the 5Th series of Dr Who? Good? Bad? Ugly?

Just curious really... personally, it just doesn't seem to have the entertainment factor it used to have....
And before anyone says anything.... this isn't a thread about wether you find the new assistant hot... that's another thread ;D

I'm not watching it with about the same level of enthusiasm as before.

Dr Who was good in the 70s, 80s.

The newer version leaves me kindda meh.

I didn't watch the ones in the 70s or 80s...not being alive kinda stopped that :P

Although i recently bought the (new) series 1-4. Obviously that means there is aloooot of Tennant... but he was excellent

Smith is....good but different. I just dont think the stories/plot-lines are as gripping as the older ones... kinda meh for the moment. Enjoyable... but not AS enjoyable as the older ones.

Seems to have lost a large part of its complexity since Tennant left, which has taken a lot of the fun out of it - they seem to be aiming for a younger audience.

It has more of a drama feel to it, which I really like.

Buuuut, it's Doctor Who, so in some ways it doesn't translate as well. I am still really enjoying it though.

Or have you just grown up a bit.

Also Moffat is writing them now instead of Russel T Davis, so their styles are a bit different.

We actually did have a thread on this, it died in favour of talking about the assistant

[hr]


I think its brilliant. Its completely captured to soul of Doctor Who perfectly.

Matt Smith worried me at first, but he's proved to be brilliant as the Doctor. The new assistant is great, not just cause she's hot, but because she's so much better than the others. Rose was ok, but got a bit tiring with the "I'm in love with the doctor" thing they had going. Martha was just trying to copy rose, and sucked. Tate was ok, but nothing special - but Gillam is brilliant, because she's totally her own person, not just the Doctor's shadow.

The story writing is brilliant, but then it always was going to be, Moffat is great, all the best episodes from 1-4 were written by him.
