I’ve been watching the new adventures of Doctor Who, and I must say, at first, I was a bit bored and annoyed with the show, but it quickly grew on me, until I made it to season 5. Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, is not nearly charismatic enough to carry the show, especially compared to his two predecessors.
Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant were amazing. Unfortunately, none of their companions ever really grew on me. I was always waiting for Amy Pond, and was excited to see David Tennant partnered with her as that’d be a great match in my opinion. Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan, is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. So a charismatic Doctor and a beautiful companion seemed like good television to me.
So now I’m watching Matt Smith, and I’m not impressed. He isn’t as funny or as engaging. If it wasn’t for Karen, I’d just stop watching.
I am glad to have come back to the show. When I was young, I watched Doctor Who and remember enjoying it. I couldn’t tell you today, without going back and watching older episodes, which Doctor that I watched, but I love how campy the modern episodes can sometimes be.
Have you watched Doctor Who and if so, what did you think?
