Doctor Who - Series Five - The New Doctor!

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
So, has anyone seen the first couple of episodes? I don't think they have officially aired in North America, but I have seen the first two and wanted to hear other's opinions.



Anyways, I was satisfied with the premiere.... I wasn't that impressed with Matt Smith as the doctor but I LOVED the new companion Amy. She was great!

However, in the second episode the new Doctor Who totally grew on me, loved the writing in the second episode, and I am still LOVING Amy. I generally do like the companions (With the exception of Martha), but I think Amy might be something special.

I haven't seen it yet (I'm in North America), but I am so excited!

I've watched both new episodes and love Matt Smith as the Doctor.

Inpatiently waiting for them to air here in North America! I will miss David Tennant, but really want to give the new doc a chance.

Can I admit to not liking David Tennant when he first became the Doctor?

Definitely... I didn't lol! I always feel a wee bit betrayed when the Doctors leave which makes me hold it against the new one!

Yeah I hated David Tennant at first and was totally annoyed by loosing Christopher Eckleson, but then I LOOOOOOVED David Tennant, so I'm willing to give Matt Smith a chance.

Second episode was really good. I wish Ameila was still Ameila and not "Amy" though

Yes, PLEASE... Where can I watch this online? The best I've been able to do is see about 2/3 of Eleventh Hour in 1 minute youtube posts. I'll have to say, although I am still wearing black for David, Matt Smith is definitely growing on me. I'm really looking forward to seeing how he develops as the Doctor. Also can't wait to see what Steven Moffat cooks up. Love his stories

I didn't like David Tennant at first either, but after awhile I thought he was great. I can't wait to see the new one, too!

Scroll down to Doctor Who, it's the BBC website. Not sure if you can play it, but it's worth a try.

We found episode 1 on Zune last night after seeing this thread- I liked it! I hate the new doctor of course, but change is hard and I'll get used it it I'm sure, lol. He just didn't seem very doctor~ish yet.

Thanks again for the heads up!

really loved the first episode, but the second one was a bit rough. i think matt smith is still getting into his "doctor-ness". and i love amy! she is great.

Yeah, I like Amy too.

I like it reluctantly. It seems like it was written by marketers who studied highlights from the whole series, focusing in on all the the best, most charming aspects of the Doctor and the series. But that's me being cynical.

I think the part that bugged me the most was the food thing... I don't know why though! I just couldn't imagine The Doctor *throwing* food around! Lol! We watched the last episode of season 4 a few days ago- I miss the old Doctor!

Good point! Yes, the Doctor shouldn't be spitting and throwing food!

We're gonna have to start calling fish sticks 'fish fingers' now.

So who has seen The Beast Below yet? Good episode! Though I still feel like I'm being manipulated into liking it. I love Amy Pond so far.

Though dag nabbit BBC America had A LOT of ads.

we saw it, i have to say i didn't like the doctor's over reaction to what amy did. specially when in the end she was the only one to see what actually needed to be done. and then he never says sorry and she still wants to go with him, very co-dependent. lol
