Behind the rest of the press pack, SFX gave The Eleventh Hour an online thumbs up this week, giving the new Doctor Who time to breathe before delivering their verdict.
The popular sci fi magazine – whose website has recently experienced its own long-overdue regeneration – give little away about the plot, but do make the following observations:
*Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith is “impish, occasionally school mastery, often slightly unhinged”
*The Eleventh Hour itself is “a perfect blend of pure, unashamed adventure and the genius ideas that characterised Moffatâ€™s previous Who scripts…”
*The night-time shooting has a wonderful fairytale quality to it
*Oh and what’s more, The Eleventh Hour is the “best season opener since Whoâ€™s 2005 return”
