It made a change that I could work a few things out before they ‘happened’, on the brand new Doctor Who. I think it’s because I’m cleverer, but I could be wrong about being right. Whatever, I liked the new, not totally baked Doctor. Though neither my cooking nor my baking tend to clutch their hearts and go on about it. But our new Doctor is a man (nothing new there) and young, so probably doesn’t suffer in silence.
I think people have been far too hung up on David Tennant, and forgetting that he was created by scriptwriters. So no reason at all why a new Doctor can’t be as loveable. And as I reminded Daughter before it started, we have seen Matt Smith in a couple of things before and liked him.
The Eleventh Hour was a pretty good beginning. Scary, but not behind-the-sofa scary. I expect that may come next week.
And we may not have a female Doctor – yet – but Amy is feisty and will make up for their lack of forward thinking in that department. I hope she will be a real thorn (the nice kind, obviously) in her companion’s side. Teach him to be late, if nothing else. Hope she hung on to the handcuffs.
