    I still haven’t seen this new series yet..

    haven’t had time yet.. not being a Time Lord !

    I remember watching the first ever episode with

    William Hartnell as the Dr.. I hope this new Dr returns the show to the original benchmark.

    Good luck to him.. it must be a very hard task..

    being Scottish I hope he also commends unity in the UK as well as space

    Hope Tom Baker as the curator comes along again..

    Who knows.. tapping his nose.. WHO knows

    Very disappointing. The Doctor had no energy or wit. Fell flat. Sounded like he was reciting lines. The rest of the cast had the expected energy and bounce. Hope he improves. Been watching for decades.

    Oh and another thing, the spontaneous human combustion deaths should have been shown not just the T. rex. That would’ve given the kids nightmares.
