I just saw that! LOVED it.

In other words, I've been educating my wife and kids. I got all caught up in Oct. But now I started with the '05 series with my 13-9(almost 10)-7 year olds. And they LOVE it. We did a mini Who-athon yesterday after finishing up season 2 watching Rose Tyler's farewelll (all of them in tears) and we got midway through season 3 yesterday! Kim didn't really like Chris E but she loves David Tennant. My kids all miss Rose Tyler but it's great getting to experience things again knowing what happens :D

Now I just have to hear my son running around the house yelling "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"

Not sure they could handle the ancient special effects of the old Who, but I'll probably eventually go back and watch all that's available...

I try not to think of Classic Who so much as television, but televised theater. When I think of it that way, the low production values don't affect me as much. That said, I just watched Robot. Post-regeneration Tom Baker is awesome.

I love Tom Baker....like I said previously - he's the reason I initially got into the Who! So I think I'll definitely go back and watch all of his if nothing else...

So I watched everything Netflix/Amazon Prime had on Classic Who and even watched a few others I found online....It was a fun time.

It confirmed that I enjoyed 4 the best of the Classics but really also enjoyed 2, 3, and 6 as well.

And that Jamie is an awesome companion...

On to the 12th now - what does everyone think so far. I thought Deep Breath was good, dragged a bit, but I'm enjoying what PC is bringing to the role. I think he's going to take about half a season to really settle in but I do like what I see. Into the Dalek was decent as well if a bit rushed. It did bring a sense of fear of the Daleks that hasn't been there in awhile.

I actually liked the slower pace of Deep Breath. It felt more like Classic Who. As for Peter, I think he's knocked the role out of the park. He very well could supplant Tennant as my favorite modern Doctor.

I love the new title/intro sequence too. They hired the guy who did this one:

I also really enjoyed the beginning titles...very old school! I'm not sure PC will supplant DT BUT I do like him quite a bit already :)

Holy crap! What did I just see? (just watched Listen)

:-o

Only comment I'm going to leave here (I don't want to spoil a damn thing for you who haven't seen it yet) is my rating, which I don't give often. I've only given a 10/10 to Blink and to Genesis of the Daleks. And now... to Listen, a 10/10.

That was some goddamn good Doctor Who today.

Arrgghh...I keep hearing good things but I've been so busy this weekend. I was going to watch it Saturday night until I got called into work the overnight and day shift...then yesterday was my daughter's 14th b-day. TONIGHT.
