Karen Gillan is the hottest thing that's ever been on that show.
Ever. Since 1963.
The 2005+ revival hasn't had anywhere near the imagination or the wonder of the previous series, however, even if it's had bigger budgets and better production.
On one hand I agree that NuWho is missing something the Original Who hadn't, but I also consider that my watching Original Who was as a Child, so it seemed.. more then it was? And I watch NuWho as an Adult, so I see it through different eyes.
His inability to act is one major problem.
Inability to act? Are you... serious? He brings a different sort of energy to the role. He's a more fun, yet darkly serious Doctor then you are giving him credit for. You can FEEL the joy he has in the role, and his eyes... there are moments when he can bring this deep look of AGE that is hard to describe. What's funny is, he also has some Tom Baker Asshole in him, which I just adore. MY daughter thinks he's a bit, rude to the females on the show, but then... Baker could be a real ass too. I guess females are more highly sensitive to this? I dunno. My wife thinks it's great, he's not an emotional sensitive wuss. Good show I say, bring us MORE.
* he's not over emotional, not so breathe through the teeth angry at the Universe, Tennet's run was one seething angry demi-god, and... he loved horse face Tyler, so it was good he left (Typing Wife's 2 Cents on the issue)
Your wife is... mistaken. My whole family adores Matt Smith, and the way he and Amy get along, they are the best duo of the modern Who.
Why do you hate him
Matt Smith as Doctor sucks. He has no facial expression and a personality that is bloody boring. Not convincing, **** actor, dresses like a twat and acts even worse.
His fast talking, umming and erring, peeking out from under his hair, talking to himself and his need to try and act all dramatic and edgy is just pathetic. He has neither the wit, intelligence or charisma of David Tennant.
I dislike the entire story line, out of the entire series. I enjoy maybe two episodes. I hate the companion and her baggage that comes along with it and the never ending ... "who is river" ... "I killed someone close" .... "what are you to me" ... "very soon it will all change". I don't give a ****, stop dragging it out.
The crap effects and the hideous soundtrack. Wrecking one of the best known shows in the world. I can't stand the entire change of everything that makes Doctor Who what it is just because a new doctor happened to walk along the scene. Tennant got along fine without changing everything like Smith. The new theme tune and intro is just bad, for all that is good and holy in this world BBC needs to bloody fix it.
The series is so bad, it was getting to the point where I was cringing when it was on and hoping it quickly finished. Its not even fun to laugh at it anymore no. It is just embarrassing. The whole plot for the series seemed unimaginative and rather quite thoughtless, a child could have thought up better adventures for the doctor
The entire show needs a massive overhaul and to start off with removing Smith or the companion. And Moffat? What a horrific writer. If the next series is any way as bad as the last one under Moffat. I think I might gouge my eyes out to protect them from further damage.
Karen was just annoying me with her oh so pathetic ... "'I'm-so-in-love-with-him-and should-I-marry-the-kid-or-not". And the god awful scene of Amy trying to jump the Doctor. Moffat needs to remember Doctor Who is Sci FI not EastEnders She is an entirely unlikeable character with a motto that seems to be "when in doubt pout" and who's only role seems to be attracting male audiences with little to offer but legs and a mini skirt.
And do NOT get me started on the teletubby ****ing daleks. WTF?! They go into a machine and come out like skittles, all different colours of the rainbow :doh
Awful, cheap and tacky looking sums up how they look and those responsible should be exterminated immediately.
I gave the new Series a try, I really did. I forced myself to watch all the episodes.
Steven Moffat does not deserve praise for this series. What he should do however is do us all a favour if he would remove himself voluntarily as head writer and producer and take his cast with him and then perhaps Dr Who will still be around in 2013, which will be of course the 50th Anniversary of Dr Who.
I'm betting money Doctor Who will be cancelled before the 5 year contract is over but hey, what do I know. I am only one person who seems to be paying for this ****ing monstrosity.
Glad I got that off my chest.
