The Eleventh Hour BBC Review

The Eleventh Hour stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan

A few reviews have appeared online for The Eleventh Hour, the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who following the press launch – and naturally BBC News is among them.

Of course these reviews are almost all spoiler-free – we wouldn’t tell you anything you aren’t ready for – and while the BBC review is as positive as expected, it reveals some interesting details, mainly about the two main characters (that’s the Doctor and Amy…) and their relationship.

Lizo Mzimba describes Matt Smith’s Doctor as “a quirky, energetic one.” It seems the alienness of the Doctor is enhanced with this new version, and while not “instantly accessible” (Mzimba reckons tyhe performance is “too complex for that”) it is likely to provide a stark contrast to his predecessor as the series progresses.

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond meanwhile has “instant appeal” and possesses qualities that will make her a popular companion – “she’s feisty, brave and funny.”

Mzimba rightly observes that the relationship between the duo will “power the series” and he seems pretty satisfied that Doctor Who 2010 has enough potential.

The Eleventh Hour premieres on BBC One on Saturday, 3rd April, 2010!
