    no.

    the original worked because it was unlike anything ever heard before, weird and ELECTRONIC making it like something truly alien. IMO it just helps to show how clueless the producers are.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    Well, it's not a bad theme, per se, but it just doesn't say "This is the Doctor" like some of the others.

    Then again, my favourite theme was the TV Movie one...

    Yes it does. It the orchestrated theme adds an 'epic' feel to the series which is in keeping with the improved the production values the show now enjoys.

    But don't get me wrong, I still like the original theme as performed by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop from 1963. Both (all) versions of Ron Grainer's theme have their merits.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    I'll have to wait to see this week's episode: I'll likely be somewhere between Edinburgh and Newton Mearns at time of transmission. But hopefully the new companion will put in a good performance: hell, she's not up against much And hopefully Mr Davies will not have done much writing either...

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    I can see that pub that was at the end of todays episode from my house, I went there once. What a dump.


    Still, I enjoyed that episode. Can't see Martha being more irritating than rose...but still, stranger things have happened.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    overall, i enjoyed it, but i'm no fanatic of the series. i'll watch it next week too. it was good, and next week's one looks good too. i'm suitably impressed.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    I was very impressed by Martha actually. I expected another Rose, and she did well enough (some parts were a bit hammy). I didnt really think much to the story to tell the truth, and the "baddies" reminded me of Judge Dredd!

    And who would have thought the Stig would turn up as a Dr.Who character...

    Yes, I thought Martha was pretty good too. Overall the episode gets the thumbs up, although not the gold seal of approval just yet...

    The Black Stig. He was killed off, but has returned from the depths of the ocean to inflict his vengence upon man.

    I enjoyed Smith and Jones. Creepy space-vampire-lady flanked by The Black Stig and The Black Stigs American Cousin Cletus, Space Rhinos, and Martha doesn't come across as annoying, but she does seem to take the whole thing in her stride at times. An interesting take after Rose, but maybe RTD didn't want to retread the whole "woahmagod this isn't real" for three or four episodes.

    The Judge Space Rhinos were great though, if not a little... lazy? Of all the alien designs one could do, having rhino-headed spacemen seems a bit dull.

    Can't say I'm looking forward to next weeks episode though. I didn't care much for the Dickens episode, so I doubt I'll like this one much.

    I liked it too, I was expecting the campy crapfest that is most of RTD's work, and was plesantly surprised. The new, longer format suits the Doctor much, much better. You simply can't cram the Doctor into half an hour without it being rushed

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    I thought it was pretty good. Not the "OMG bestest episode ever!" , but it was a nice opener and pretty entertaining. I liked the slightly disturbing nature of it and they actually packed a hell of a lot into those 45 mins. Good stuff.

    Martha came across as very cool to me, although i may have been swayed by her looks....

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    Am I the only one who thinks "Hey, this whole race does this one single job and nothing else" theme bordering on the annoying and stupid? I mean, a whole race of Judge Dredds For Hire is multiple types of awesome, but it's a little tired.

    Martha seemed to get into the whole thing a little quick, but, then again, she has seen a bunch of Rhinos march into a hospital after teleporting it to he moon, so I doubt there's much of a leap of believe that a guy can travel in time after seeing all that. Plus she's not as annoying as Rose, which is always a plus.

    Not as good as the double bill of Impossible Planet/Satan Pit, but it is good for a single episode, and on par with the first episode of the Eccelson series. I give it a 7 out of 10 on my Reabe-o-meter-of-Doctor-Who-Episodes.

    And I'm happy with the appearance of the Black Stig and Black Stig's Twin, if only Clarkson appears and gets killed by Darlek.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    The Judoon looked like a fanvid done on 50 by a pair of goths who think fake leather, matte plastic and chains is the height of intimidating.

    They looked like men in costumes.

    The dialogue was, as usual, tripe from the word go.

    The Judoon tech was uncannily similar to that of the Sontarans, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Graham Williams estate sues.

    Space fantasy for people with low-standards (star wars fans) or, 8 year olds, which is probably what its directed at. Thank god I left any expectations at the front-door before entered this trainwreck.

    Re: "ZOMG! Doctor Who!"

    As an episode which was designed to introduce a new assistant, it worked very well and avoided all the obvious pitfalls.

    The story itself worked. Yes it has massive plot holes, but it was entertaining and that's what matters most.

    And it looked good.

    Well unfortunately the BBC doesnt have the same size budget as, say, Sci-Fi Channel (producers of BSG). They have, after all, so many massive ego's in their employ with the ability to drain cash...

    They looked like men in costumes.
    Perhaps, just perhaps, thats because they were men in costumes.

    The dialogue was, as usual, tripe from the word go.
    I'll concede that one. I didnt think it was too bad, there's been worse, but the dialogue is indeed usually crap.

    You know what happens when you set your standards waaaaaay high? You get disappointed. The sooner you realise that not everything can be as good as Battlestar Galactica, or Babylon 5 (if it floats your boat), or that dream you had one time about a spaceship and aliens and stuff (OMG WOWZ) the sooner you'll learn to appreciate light, fun sci-fi.

    I wouldn't bother salty, Acolyte of Bli'l'ab hates the new Who regardless.

    Which makes me wonder why you watched, if you knew you'd hate it. As frankly, I think the shtick is getting old. You don't like the new Who. We get it. You can only articulate that so many ways without it getting old.

    Not very imaginative costumes either, but I guess thats what happens when the main producer lacks any ideas of his own.

    Well unfortunately the BBC doesnt have the same size budget as, say, Sci-Fi Channel (producers of BSG). They have, after all, so many massive ego's in their employ with the ability to drain cash...

    BSG and the like are actually alot cheaper than dr who. The difference being the production team have 1) talent, 2) experience and 3) charge less.

    the sooner you'll learn to appreciate light, fun sci-fi.

    You mean, like Stargate which does the same things ; character based, fun, fluffy and entertaining but actually does it well. I'm sorry I just cant appreciate televised fanfic..thats what youtube is for.
