I really liked Tennant but a few shows into Smith and I like him more. That said, it's going to get harder and harder to find new ones I guess. But I give the show credit, it keeps entertaining bringing in new blood.
Davies and his group are doing a great job in casting and keeping the creative juices flowing.

fish sticks and custard...mmmmm... and bow ties are cool... must admit, I geeked my oldest out on doctor who and now the rest are following.. she said the best book I got her was the secrets of the tardis or the tardis hand book (can't remember which one) explains every aspect of the tardis and all the doctors up to smith..

btw... my favorite is still tom baker.. he is the one I grew up with on PBS

Love the show.

I have a small dalek on my desk at work. It's awesome. it rolls around screaming 'Exterminate'. No one else knows what it is. They keep asking me if it's the robot from Lost in Space.

Cretins!

Beer-lord, Davies isn't directly involved with the show anymore - hasn't been since the Tennant Doctor. I forget the name of the guy running the show now, wanna say its Moffat? So far I like his direction better, and the caliber of writing a little better, except for the perception filter plot device they leaned on a little too often in the first season or two...

I've only seen part of one of the new Dr. Who series; not really enough to decide whether I liked the newest Dr. or not. Every time the doctor regenerated & was replaced by a new actor, I was rather dissappointed for a while. I mean it was sort of like starting the series all over again. When I started watching, Tom Baker played The Doctor & I got used to him. IMHO, He will always be THE Doctor; Kind of like how Errol Flynn will always be THE Robin Hood. Of course with the advancements in technology, I'm sure the newest incarnation of Dr. Who hould be pretty spectacular.

I miss Sarah Jane (sigh)
Regards, GF.

I love Doctor who. I've been watchin sionce the new series started. I even went to NYC this past weekend to see the season 7 premire.

It rocked. Matt Smith made us all promise not to leak any spoilers. Him and Karen Gillian feilded Q's after. It was a good time

Yes, you're correct but based on what's been said at Comic Con, he's still giving them help with ideas and I think he still owns some of the production company that's involved.
Steven Moffat is the current major writer and producer.
I agree, his writing seems wittier and if and when the 2 get together, it's a smash.

5 more nights!

Watched "The Timey Wimey of Dr Who" on the DVR last night, and I just can't wait for the season premier now. Crosschk, it may be a good thing you haven't posted a location, as you may have a couple folks coming to torture a couple spoilers out of you!

This Saturday should be a pretty bang-up day - brewing up a nice American stout with a couple buddies, so long as everyone's schedules line up, then getting to watch the Doctor that night? Sweet!
