The Eleventh Hour – Win!
We’ll be supplying a full review on Sunday morning, but in the meantime, there’s plenty of time for some initial reaction.
The Doctor Who side of the internet is likely in meltdown right now as everyone discusses the good and the bad from The Eleventh Hour. From opening titles (new and good) to the interesting new character that is the Doctor, from wedding dresses to single lads viewing adult websites, from little girls being left at home along to biting psychiatrists, there is so much to discuss.
At times, the CGI wasn’t 100% convincing – but then, at others, it was pretty marvellous. You’ve got to take the rough with the smooth.
Without going into spoilers (and there will be enough of those in the review!) what we saw broadcast as Doctor Who tonight put the last 5 years squarely behind us, requiring not even a glimpse over the shoulder to see if it was still breathing. The David Tennant Show (aow yesh/stop it…./WHAT?!) is now but a distant memory.
We’ve got a new Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, and a new era overseen by Steven Moffat.
If you’re one of the few that didn’t “feel” the Doctor tonight, stick it on again, either via iPlayer or BBC Three – you’ll be pleasantly surprised…
And for those of you that enjoyed it, the opening titles once again…
Don’t forget, you can sign up to our forum to rate The Eleventh Hour out of ten.
