Only watched the first one and it just confirmed why I can't watch the show anymore. They have just become silly. The Dr Who I liked was a serious show. It had moments of humor but was at heart a serious show that while it was for kids it treated them seriously and didn't look down on them. Now the whole show is tongue in cheek with the odd serious or soppy moment. For those of you loving the change all good and dandy but this isn't the show I grew up with.

Personally, loved it, the only realyl weak bit for me was the characters that Bill Bailey et al played. Loved the concept, even if I did figure out she'd end up saving her hubby pretty quickly. Great entertainment and Matt's reaction as the Doctor to how it ended was class.

Over 40 years of watching Dr Who its time for me to switch off the show like the rest of my family have since the new Dr / writers have taken over , the final straw for me was when the line was spoken you will never be able to pilot this machine it takes years of training, or words to that effect ,so a machine hundreds of years in advance technology was cracked by a world war two housewife who could barely drive a car :is this the best on offer for a highlight Xmas show if it is then R.I.P.

I enjoyed it a lot - the Christmas one should be less about the SF and technology, and for a one off episode that's fine.

I also enjoyed touches like the way he was surprised that Rory and Amy had laid a place for him just in case - something Matt Smith has really done well is bring out the way the Doctor doesn't realise how special he is to other people.

Great line near the start as well, as to why the helmet was back to front - "I got dressed in a hurry".

As for the WWII housewife driving a mech...

We have trees that grow a space and time vehicle they can't operate, a WWII plane that lands without a runway, Christmas trees that grow their own decorations, and it was the driving that broke the illusion for you?!?!

I knew a guy who worked on military equipment, and his view was always that if your average squaddie is to use it without hurting himself or breaking it, it's pretty much 100% idiot proof. (And the regular crew were hardly militarily elite!)

I was on a plane Xmas day so I've only just caught up.

I loved it Not overly schmaltzy, really weird central story that I liked a lot. My only complaint was the music which was a bit over the top in parts, especially early in the ep when the Doctor is showing his modification of the house off to the kids. I kept noticing the music, and I shouldn't.

Otherwise top stuff. There wasn't a trailer for the next series on iPlayer, was there one after the live broadcast?

No trailer at the end of the Christmas episode. First time they've done that I think.

Actually, now that you mention it, I think there was an old episode that said he could hold his breath for two hours or something crazy like that. The best I can find at the moment is a TV Tropes entry:
Quote:
- In Doctor Who, it is established that due to their alien biology, Time Lords such as the Doctor can survive in the vacuum of space without the need for external protection.

- - However, while Time Lords do not need space suits, they still need oxygen to breathe. There was one notable instance in which the Fifth Doctor had to go outside a ship into the vacuum of space, but all he took with him was an oxygen tank from a medical kit. Other episodes establish that Time Lords have a "respiratory bypass", which allows them to survive being strangled. Its not clear if this means a Time Lord can survive for even longer periods in space, although they would be unconscious (whereas the Fifth Doctor needed to repair something on the outside of the ship so he had to stay conscious, so he took oxygen with him).
Besides, he was only outside for a minute or two before he got the spacesuit on. That's not much more than Dave in 2001, for instance (though I could've done without the swimming, and maybe some wind when he was hanging on to the deck before being blown out).

I liked it, but it wasn't brilliant. I also wasn't keen on the outside in space thing. It's just not right, even if they've done it before in the dim past. I thought they'd gone past it since they had Tennant wearing a suit a few times.

The rest was ok. I think I'd have preferred the familiarity of a known baddie for the ep though. I wonder if the Daleks are back for the new series?

Yeah we noticed that too......maybe a 50th Anniversary thing? The rumor mill is rife around that so maybe they didn't want to give anything away just yet?

I did see an interview with Matt Smith where he confirmed that the next series is green lit and he is confirmed as the Doctor so I guess the celebratory thing is over and above that!

A multi doctor episode would be most welcome, but as I recall Chris Ecclestone has definitely ruled it out more than once.

I read somewhere that they're not doing the March/April start date this year, so it'll be more like August/Sept. That might be why there's no teaser, hasn't filmed yet.

I have no idea who she is, and so no base to really comment. I suppose we'll find out if she's any good or not at christmas

She has a LOT of other stuff on the go, which makes me wonder if she will stay for long...

I'm a bit disappointed that they aren't using someone from a previous episode, quite a few would have worked well. (Like that girl from the London bus on the desert planet of robot vultures?)

But the Amy Pond & Rory combination were the best assistants in a VERY long time for me. A tough act to follow.

Agreed, loved the Ponds, the chemistry was just right.
Have to wait N see if she's any good, I gave up judging until I saw after Katherine Tate, who I really expected not to like as I was far from a fan.
However, she turned in some cracking work so shows what I know.

She seems nice. I'm eager to see what reasons the internet will cook up to hate her and/or her character.

Really?!?! I'd say about the only worse assistant was Bonnie Langford - I have a friend who stopped watching the show entirely because he thought Tate was so awful.

funny innit, still personal taste is everything, makes it interesting. Mind you, not to say there wasn't some parts where she was too like some of her sketch characters for my liking, but yep, some of her work had genuine impact for me.

That said, I rate her 3rd after the Ponds and Rose, Martha really didn't do it for me as a companion, dunno why.
'That' ending with Billie Piper and Tennant though gets a reaction every time we see it, even if it is only that one scene.

Amy Pond is as mad as a box of frogs, love that.
