The Next Doctor Who!

April 13, 2010

 

The Eleventh Doctor Who is here! Matt Smith stars as the newest Doctor, and with two brand new episodes gracing BBC already, the response is overwhelmingly positive. Fans are flocking to the web to give their opinion, so here’s mine!

The next Doctor strikes me as an interesting mix of the two previous modern-take Doctors: the dark melancholy and sense of humor of Christopher Eccelston, and the sprightly determination of David Tennant. Smith’s brunette pompadour and dark eyes give a nice contrast to the awful wardrobe selected for this latest Doctor, all tweeds and a bow-tie that in all honesty, needs to go. And this new Doctor, after accidentally destroying the last one, gets a brand new Sonic Screwdriver that’s green!

The latest Doctor companion is one Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillian, sporting long red hair and a very passionate personality – perfect counterpoint for an admittedly darkly countenanced Doctor. And while she’s certainly doing a fine job thus far, let’s face it, we’re all here to watch the wacky and wonderful new Doctor!

And, with the advent of everything new, the show has received a brand new title sequence, with new music too! The inside of the TARDIS has gotten a makeover, you can go check it out on the BBC website. Every last thing is new, and BBC’s effort to make things as nifty (and hopefully popular) as they were before, that gave DW such a huge fanbase, is nothing short of a miracle.

I do think it’s a bit of a shame that the TV writer Gods decided to bring the Dalek storyline back in to DW so quickly though. Yes, we know it had to be in there someplace, given Doc’s history with the Daleks, but it doesn’t need to be the third freaking episode.

Whether you’re a fan of the very-old series, the modern-take Doctors, or a first-timer to the Doctor Who universe, the 11th Doctor is a surprise and delight for most, with many surprises for the fans new and old, up his tweed sleeves!
