OK so I finally got to see the new Dr Who and the debut of Matt Smith as the Dr and I got to say. I want more. At first when looking at the pics your first impression was huh? Why replace Tennant ? He was the best Dr ever. Probably will still hold that title for a bit but my first impressions of Matt Smith and writer Steven Moffat is that they are a hit. It was hard to phantom a replacement for David but BBC and the Whovian powers to be did a fine job with the transition and a better job in the direction of the Dr. The Episode that kicked it off The 11th Hour was brilliant. I kind of like how they changed the Tardis around and the way they explain the magic away.
Opening scene form Dr Who
The Doctor has regenerated into a brand new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover. With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just twenty minutes to save the whole world – and only Amy Pond to help him.
There are some subtle differences like Amy Pond seems to be a great action hero in her own right a fiery red head with looks and attitude . You can also feel the attraction between the two characters that you felt with Rose and the Dr. Also this Dr already establishes his uniqueness as a more of head on type of character . He knows he has a certain power of defeating evil as the closing scene of the 11th Hour showed where he stood in front of an alien about to incinerate the planet and told them to run after they scanned him and saw all the Drs flash backs with every alien he ever met. You get the sense from that scene that this is going to be the pace and the feel of this character. He also brought some humor and some craziness of old Drs . It might be me but in one scene when he was trying to find what foods he liked I saw a little draw from Tom Baker’s impulsiveness . All in all this is going to be a great series if the premiere is the template of shows to come.
New opening theme
And just for kicks here are all the other ones from every single Dr before Matt Smith all in order. Enjoy !
