      Anyone a fan of this, i am only a youngster and i love the show, thought Matt Smith did well on his first episode, going to be a big ask for him to take over David Tennant, was just wondering if anyone watched the show ?

      Yeah i thought David Tennant was boss and never thought the new fella would get anywhere near the standard that Tennant set.

      But he did! I thought he was boss in the 1st episode. Looks like a good choice for the new doctor.

      Personally, thought towards the end the first half of the series got a lot better, personally cannot wait to find out the consequences of the Doctor knowing River Song, the fact she is a time lord, the relationship they will have, so many unanswered questions, does she kill the doctor, cant wait.

      I really think Matt Smith has grown into the role, as has Arthur Darvill as Rory.  For me though, Karen Gillan's Amy Pond has really started to grate on me and is continually outacted by the other regulars & especially by her on screen daughter, Melody Pond/River Song.

      I personally feel Matt Smith has the potential to be a better doctor then David Tennant, if given the right script, Steven Moffat IMO has let the the doctor who team down, reading up on it somewhere apparently the seasons weren't his full focus, Sherlock was, which may i say is just as good as doctor who.

      I agree, i have never been fond of the character Amy Pond, to be honest the only companion i have liked, has been Martha Jones, the rest seemed a bit over the top and unrealistic.

      I'm showing my age here, but I have enjoyed Dr Who at various stages through my life and I still watch it now.  I think Matt Smith is excellent.  Like many, I was dubious when he was named, but then I saw some clips of him acting in other shows and he has an odd matureness about him.

      When I were a wee lad, I remember Jon Pertwee being the Doctor and Tom Baker was the one that really owned it while I was growing up - for six years I think.  I also watched quite a bit of Peter Davison's Doctor (especially with Nicola Bryant!! :D) but then lost interest. 

      I was a bit narked when they said 'no daleks' this time, felt a bit like saying we've run out of ideas.  They could have had a stalemate or some situation where the Doctor has to run away/escape to survive rather than actually defeating them.

      Bumping this after starting the thread worrying about Matt Smith taking David Tennant over and now my concerns are the same about Peter.

      Won't spoil the first episode for anyone, thought he did alright, think it will be harder for me myself to be as attached to this doctor as Matt Smith made his character so slick and cool.

      What did you lot make off the episode if you watched it?

      I really enjoyed it! Peter was a little awkward in parts but I noticed the same with Matt in his first episode, and he went on to be my favorite Doctor, but yeah, I liked it, had me laughing a lot!

      I think the 76 minutes for the episode made it feel a little dragged out in parts too though.

      True but the last 5 minutes of the episode were the best for me.

      The plot wasn't so good, even with all the references to one of my favourite episodes. However I enjoyed Capaldi and am enjoying Clara's growth. The phone call I actually liked even if it was blatantly designed to get those unaccustomed to an older doctor on board. A promising debut for me, always takes a few episodes for the new doctor to really hit their stride.

      Also a few questions raised which helps get me hooked!

      Yeah I watched it - the bit at the end when the Doctor says 'Look AT me - not at my face' was the writers way of trying to get the stupid fangirls who love Twilight on board.

      I don't consider myself a fan of Doctor Who, I watch it now and again and its enjoyable, but Peter Capaldi's such a great actor it's impossible to go wrong. I watched it and I thought he was great and his assistant Clara doesn't seem a cliched bimbo but a real character, so that's a good basis. It's impossible to go wrong, unless the scripts turn really really sh*t - like one based around The Doctor going back in time to buy yesterday's paper.

      Lol agreed. I loathed Rose, she was one of these ever growing number of characters with next to no personality. A hollow shell for viewers, particularly fan girls, to pour themselves into so they can imagine themselves stroking David Tenant's face.

      (From my understanding this is also the basis of them Twilight books and the movies, replacing Tennant with Robert Pattinson.)

      Same as mate but after Tom Baker and Pertwee l lost interest and don't think watched another episode, maybe because the theme was too repetitive and juvenile - or maybe the ale, women and buses into town in no particular order distracted me.
      Having followed Capaldi from his early appearances in that comedy hospital show Getting On with Jo Brand which was excellent, then his serious dramatic roles, it was something of a surprise to hear he had been cast as Dr Who!
      Surely a backward step in his career or perhaps offers of work are thin on the ground, which would be surprising.

      A backwards step? In the last couple of years the show has exploded on the international market, they were going round the globe doing world premieres. It's the biggest role up for grabs on British TV.

      It's by far the biggest role of Capaldi's career and the only move upward is to lead a multi-million dollar US show like a Breaking Bad/Walking Dead level or become a movie star. To most of the world this is his first exposure. This aint the Tom Baker days anymore.

      Also, from what I hear he is a big fan of the show.
