Don't Judge a book by The Doctor's cover., 15 Mar. 2012
I'm not one of those old Doctor Who fanatics that has watched every single episode ever made BUT I have watched every episode of the newer era of Doctor Who starting at Christopher Eccleston and working it's way up to Matt Smith. And this is easily one of, if not, the best since Season 2. The episodes are always entertaining and often gripping and there are new baddies to get your head around that are always fairly scary (ignoring the alien turkey that plagues Van Gogh obviously) The build up throughout the series is really good leading up to the EPIC finale that sets up the story nicely for the sixth series.
A lot of people criticised David Tennant for not being as good as Eccleston and now people do it for Matt Smith. In my opinion Matt Smith is brilliant, if anything he is the best Doctor for me especially when he goes into one of his Doctory rants. Brilliant acting and co-stars are also brilliant, Karen Gillan- easily the best (and most believable) companion yet and then you have Rory the Roman who dies and dies again. Equally brilliant and perfect to be Matt Smith's accomplices.
All I'm saying is, whether you prefer David Tennant or Christopher Eccleston or even the older Doctors, don't be put off the series for it not being any of those. Watch it for yourself and find out how good it really is, you'll hopefully find that it is definitely worth the money.
