    Pleasantly surprised :yes: an excellent episode and his own touch - good luck Matt , not as upset as I thought I'd be by a long way and the preview of the new series looks just great

    You know I was thinking it wasn't going to be as good and I thought I'd really miss DT but it was great and he played the part so well.

    He looks like he's settled straight into the role and is a bit quirky in a good way

    I was really surprised and pleased. I think he's naturally quirky which is as it should be so it's not like he's really acting :lol:

    I found it hard not to imagine DT doing a few of the lines which I think he'd have done better with but that's just early days stuff I think.

    yep, all in all, he's a much better choice than I thought and I'm looking forward to the rest.

    They have tried hard to give it a completely new feel from the Titles to the Tardis and the 'I missed something' back tracking they did a couple of times - they have tried hard to make it obvious they are in a completely different place now they have not only lost DT but also the fantastic Russell T Davies.

    I loved the fish custard bit, he also delivered his speech well at the end of the episode and I did like the 'phoning the aliens to get them back to tell them off' that was classy :D

    Think I'm going to like Amy too

    yep, did you see DR Who confidential on three afterwards? very interesting to see how they engineered it all. As you say, very much a fresh start

    yes indeed! Very nicely done

    What's not to like :D

    Definitely worth a watch to see the tardis tour and the explanation of how they did the "what did I miss"

    Agree didn't like the music but the Tardis looked very Jules Verne to me which is great - mind you only saw glimpses - have to go and look at the confidential somewhere

    What a brilliant start to the new series! I was already a fan of Matt Smith and was not disappointed with his portrayal of the Doctor. :thumbsup: It was like having dear Tom Baker back with us. Excellent indeed! :yes:

    I loved the Tardis interior. A typewriter... priceless! :lol:

    Oops, I knew there was something I forgot yesterday...

    :yes: That was was genius.

    A nice feisty Scots lass. :D

    I don't watch those as I don't like to see behind the scenes until I've finished watching the shows. It can sometimes spoil the effect if you know how it's done.

    Now that would be the best app ever. :D :thumbsup:
