I rarely watch TV at all, anymore.  Most of the shows are unbearably unfunny.  This is one of the few that I can bear to watch, and it's decent.

New series is very good.

The Doctor has potential, once he gets his own personality rather than Tennant's it will improve.

The new head writer did some of my favourite previous episodes (Blink and Silence in the Library) so I'm not worried about writing quality.

I do quite miss the old opening and closing themes, though. They felt more epic, while the new one feels quite empty. The beginning and end of the new theme doesn't feel so empty, though...

And I also think that the theme animation is strange. The vortex is made up of what looks more like clouds, there's lightning for some strange reason, and the TARDIS moves at a sloooooooooow speed.

Although I did quite enjoy the episode.

And fish fingers and custard. Well, I haven't tried it...

Yes, they changed the opening sequence because everything else had changed (producer, writer, Doctor, and companion) rather than because it needed changed. It's OK, I just imagine the old sequence and music when the new one appears.

Do you live in the UK then?
