Dr. Who For Teh Win

I got to see most of the rest of the 2005 season of Dr. Who this weekend, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed overall.

I wasn't crazy about the first episode... And it did take me a while to warm up to the new actors/characters, but if you give it a chance, pretty much everything you liked about the older series eventually makes an appearance. While the first episode is fairly London-centric, and mostly serves to introduce new viewers to the whole teleporting phone booth/weird time traveller guy concepts, the later episodes are reminiscent of the "classics", only with a much bigger budget (or maybe it's just a more modern special effects department... probably both.)
