First topic message reminder :

Can't believe no-one has posted anything about quite possibly the greatest TV show ever made!

Well the new series is nearly upon us, and as I found this on youtube today Clicky, I thought I would start a new thread (its a new long trailer for the new series).

Feel free to talk about all of the series and doctors on here, although I would imagine that it will be predominantly made up of the reboot.

From the reboot, Matt Smith is by far my favourite. Never liked Ecclestone and although I liked Tennant, I just feel that the last lot of specials were terrible and tarnished his memory. Matt Smith plays him brilliantly and doesnt make me miss DT one bit.

So what are your opinions of this fantastic show and how good does that trailer look?

It's a shame because it was such a good series when Tennant and Smith were piloting the Tardis.

A reply almost three years late but oh well.

I quite liked Ecclestone and the first (new) series had some very good episodes. Once he announced early during the run that he was only doing one series there was no point becoming invested in his doctor.

The Tennant and Smith tenures were however brilliant. I binged the whole lot last year and the sheer volume of top quality episodes is rare in a long running show. Particular highlights were Jacobi regenerating into the John Simm master, the climax bringing in all of the companions was superb whilst the Silence was equally good. Karen Gillan as Amy Pond was the perfect companion, she played a big role but it was always clear that Matt Smiths doctor was the focus, the relationship between the two was just right, not distant but also not too emotional.

Jenna Coleman was the biggest problem with the Capaldi years, she was too prominent and overstayed her welcome by a whole series, the stories were stale and too much focus was on her, stealing the show you could say.

I saw one episode of "Flux" and it was not good.I don't think anyone understood it because it was impossible to ,it made no sense, Moffat era had plot holes too of course, but there has been something paper-thin about this era.
It's as if CC had no idea how to be a showrunner so blagged it from day one. He has imitated RTD in his second series, which was an embarrassing failure,to counter the excruciating failure of the first series!
Jodie is a good actress and a nice person, but I can't see what others see in her performance; personally, I find her irritating.
Roll on next series.

A quick note for Arthur Darvill who I thought was also an excellent part of that dynamic. They just worked so naturally together. I'm delighted that Gillan's career has taken off as it has. She's an incredibly likable actress with a cracking screen presence.

Alex Kingston as River Song also added a lot to Who in Smith's tenure.

They appeared less but Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax were also a lot of fun as recurring guests in that tenure.

I think there are justifiable criticisms of how complex (can substitute convoluted depending on my mood there...) later story lines in Smith's tenure got but overall I really loved that era and he's probably my favourite Doctor. Given I got into Who in the Eccleston and Tennant eras that's quite rare as well I think. Most fans I talk to tend to view the Doctor they first fell into the show with as their favourite for understandable reasons.
