I can honestly say that although I thought Tennant played a fantastic Doctor, I was more than impressed with Eleven’s first outing. I am a creature of habit and so I am heavily allergic to any kind of change. As a result I set myself up mentally for massive disappointment with Eleven. It is nice to be totally wrong from time to time.
My only complaints would be that the new theme tune is FUCKING AWFUL – there pretty much isn’t one – and the title sequence is rubbish. Why is the Tardis whizzing through a tube of candyfloss? Apparently Moffat said he wanted the titles to show the Tardis having a tougher more hardcore journey through the wibbly wobbly, timey wimey intertubes of time and space, but they just look like fluffy clouds of candyfloss that “go a bit red after a bit”. Two thumbs down, Mr. Stephen Moffatt New Head Of Doctor Who And All That.
But the othe 59 and half minutes – Tommy says Two Thumbs Good! I think we have a winner, and I am stoked for the rest of this series – how can we possibly go wrong when there will be Spitfires in space with lasers? Fucking LASERS?
This man is a fucking genius.
