...that is, as a fan of Doctor Who. I just completed the 5th series. The first episode
looked good on the face of it...but then, it got really really foolish. Airfoil planes flying
in a vacuum. The doc holding Amy by the arm out the Tardis door--in space.
And that episode during WWII with the Daleks, it was just too serious--the London Blitz--
for such a flippant story treatment.
That is, until..."vincent and the doctor". WOW, incredible...they could have lost the
monster plot and it still would be exquisite. In fact I was quite moved, as any artist
worth his salt would like to see what his legacy would be, posthumously.
From then on, it was all good. The doctor--Matt--is a well balanced character,
and I THINK they've compensated for the manic pace somewhat. That last double
episode was a real corker. Anyway, I still have reservations about calling it Doctor
Who, but at least now I enjoy it. There's a definite "wonderment' factor in the
I'm sure it's mostly due to new producer(s).
