      I loved Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and at first wasn't so sure about Tennant, but I think I've grown to really love Tennants portrayal of the Doctor.

      I agree that Eccleston was better than Tennant during "angry scenes". There was just more believable passion in the 9th Doctor's anger.
      On the other hand, I think Tennant was more believable during the "zany scenes".

      In the last few weeks I have watched every episode since the 2005 relaunch., including all the specials. Almost all of it is available via Netflix instant. I've never watched the old ones, honestly not super interested in them (I know, blasphemer!)
      I've become a HUGE fan, huge. My wife would say obsessed. Tardis wallpapers on my phone and computer, trades engine noise as my ringtone, etc.
      Blink was certainly one of my favorite episodes, that one blew me away, even with so little "Doctor" in it.
      I find myself using the word Clever a lot lately.
      I've just started working through Torchwood, and already found links for the Sarah Jane Adventures.
      I've seen the first ep with Matt Smith an honestly, he's a good Doctor imo. Is he Tennant good? Nope, but who could be? After a season of Eccleston I thought Tennant was wacky at first, but look how amazing he turned out to be?
      Loved Rose, still miss her. Tolerated Martha, didn't much care for Donna, but I really like Amy Pond so far.
      I think they "younged" it up a bit and honestly, it's probably the right move…. they need to appeal to that younger audience who might still see Dr. Who as their Dad's favorite show (a my wife does).

      I actually liked Tennant and all but compared to Tom Baker, McCoy, Pertwee and Eccolston he was like the "Jimmy Fallon" of Doctor Who (Ok, that is an extreme anology). He could sometimes be over the top and forced which is probably more related to his acting skills rather than his interpretation of the Doctor.
      I am glad that his time as the Doctor is over because that is what keeps the show fresh. I remember being very upset when Tom Baker handed over the role to Peter Davidson but I was also looking forward to where Davidson would take the character.
      I do wish Eccelston would have stayed a couple more seasons because that guy is a seriously good actor (Except for GIJOE)

      I take it that none of you have seen the new Matt Smith Doctor yet. Let me tell you, the series is in safe hands. I was very impressed with the series opener 'The eleventh Hour'. Can't wait for the rest of the series. And Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, flipping heck she is GORGREOUS.
      Still trying to get my head around the Spitfires flying in space on the 'coming soon' trailer. Looks cool.

      Yup, I really enjoyed the Eleventh Hour, I like Matt Smith and Karen Gillian quite a bit.

      I haven't seen any of the classic Doctors so I can't really make that comparison. I'll have to get on that.

      I've been a Dr Who fan since the early 1980s. Used to only be on public television (if at all) in the USA. Hard to find VHS tapes of the show other than what BBS released.
      Anyways, the new show is really no comparision to the old one. Old show was VERY low budget and not as fast paced as the current one.
      When I think of the old shows, I think if watching a play on stage. No CGI, no special effects (other than the odd explosion), etc...
      Make sense?
      My favorite doctor of all time will always be Sylvester McCoy(1987-96). Very loveable right from the start and changed into something more serious over the years....
      After that I'll always love Tom Baker (who doesn't?) and Peter Davidson (the doctor when I 1st started watching).
      I have EVERY episode here on my PC all the way back to An Unearthly Child (other than the missing ones of course!!!). 224GB!!!!

      That is your loss. Sure the special effects are really really bad and the shooting locations seem to always be the same damn quarry in Kent, the excellent writing more than makes up for it.

      You will get no arguments from me on this one! McCoy was awesome. One of my favorite Doctor Who episodes is "The Happiness Patrol" with McCoy as the Doctor. I also had a huge crush on Mel, I think I am the only Whovian that loved Mel! Ace was pretty cool too though.

      In case nobody has seen her yet, here's Karen Gillan who plays Amy Pond in the new series.

      A great series just got better.

      Oh and Matt Smith was great as the Doctor. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Normally I can't do pastie corpse like complexions. But for her I'd make an exception.

      I've always preferred naturally pale to unnaturally tan.

      Don't get me wrong. I'm not a fan of the orange tan.

      I think redheads look better more on the pale side then really tan.
