So, despite millions of small children and fambly descending for a lovely bank holiday visit, we still have a comic up on time! And, of course, nothing but NOTHING interrupted the first episode of the new season of Doctor Who.
All I can say is: titles and theme tune shit, everything else fucking awesome. Matt Smith is so good that I forget that he has a head the size of most normal people’s entire body. He presents a nice, eclectic mix of a number of doctors, most notably Two, Four, Nine and Ten. And young Tottie McFitPiece as Amy Pond (come on, admit it, you can’t remember her name either, and companions are only there for the teenage and maybe slightly older than teenage attention spans) played a blinder as a companion with the brass to stand up to the Doctor when needed.
It looked great – a side bonus of filming in HD is that SD looks much better – and Murray Gold’s music was spot on as always. Well, apart from the gag-reflex inducing theme, which is just shameful (it’s actually worse than the music they put on the Doctor Who Confidential programmes).
So anyway, enough bollocks, as I appear to be enacting the comic strip in real life now. Best you stop reading this and check out this week’s wibbly wobbly, timey-wimey strip right here.
