Must gouge out eyes now...

I just saw the first episode of the new Dr Who (New Earth). It was pathetic, shallow, filled with plot holes, inconsistencies, and glaringly stupid "science". It didn't let me suspend disbelief with fun science fiction. It kept hammering impossibilities at me without any covering pretense of futuristic technology. There was so much in that episode that fell so far short of the standard set in the previous season that I'm guessing that whole episode will turn out to be a dream, a fantasy going on in Rose's head. If not, then the BBC must've made an executive decision to target the 6-9 year old market.

Umm... it's Dr Who. It's for the 6-9 year old market - always has been.

Or did I just miss a joke? Um... it's early for me, ok?

Pre 2005, I'd agree with you. Evidence from the realms of new Dr Who fandom suggests otherwise.

Heh-heh-heh...you said "fandom."

I just saw the second episode of the season. It was back to the previous season's standards. Lots of fun. Arooooooo!

I haven't seen a public apology for that first episode. Have they no shame?

I can't believe THAT is in the dictionary! (Well, I can, but it makes my brain hurt.)

Want to hear something weird? I've never seen a single episode of Dr. Who. I didn't have a TV back when it was popular. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

There are gaps in my TV coverage--many that I'll never take the time to fill in. My only excuse is time poverty.
