David's run was fantastic! i liked him from his first episode. i thought he was an improvement over a ery good Eccelston. is this skip year causing Doctor Who a problem .. YES. especially the fact they announce 4 specials and then 3 of them are at the end of the year instead of spacing them out every 3 months to keep it in peolpe's minds. does matt smith look to young and make me worried? slightly, but we have an ace in the hole... new show runner
STEPHEN MOFFET by far my favorite writer of the new series. if we can keep the repetative stories from RTD gone and since he is they should be as well. i mean 3 times you have a massive dalek army surrounding our heroes and 3 times you have a quick fix to the millions of daleks. just a waste. i'm looking forward to the last 4 specials and the new run in 2010.

Yes, it has run it's course with the stale RTD at the helm; he was rapidly making the show a laughing stock. Now we have a man in charge who knows how to captivate viewers and an exciting actor in the role of the Doctor.
I reckon we're in for a real treat and possibly one of the best seasons ever.
I'm finding it more corny and less captivating. It took me a long time to get used to Tenant. I want Eccleston back:-(
Corny is a great word to descibe a lot of Tennant's run.
I don't have all that much faith in the series getting better just because Moffet is taking over as producer.
Yea, I know he made a few outstanding episodes in the past, but then on the other hand i'm not sure if I want his kind producing on a regular bases.
Will every new episode from now on have a juvenile tag-line ? ... ie, "are you my mommy", "don't blink" and "hey, who turned out the light" etc.
Moffet seems to work best in moderation.
I really can imagine myself getting tired of the Moffet formula very quickly.

Well, let's look on the up side:
RTD was definitely no longer an asset to the show (especially his last stories), and Moffat is moving in.
Improvement, is what I say....
"Everything has an end.
Except sausages, which have two..."
I have reservations about the new guy. Why does each consecutive Doctor need to get younger? I was hoping for an older Doctor. Someone old enough so that we don't get all the stupid sexual tension. Btw, I think it would be cool to see Patrick Stewart take a turn at the roll. And, why does the new Doctor look like Frankenstien's Monster? Sure all of the Doctor's have had a quirkiness to them, but that dude is downright homely.
Oh well. It's Doctor Who and I'm in.
if the first 2 specials are indications of things to come I am very very concerned that the show has had it's better days (actually I fetl that way about most of season 4 too)
You may be correct in it running it's course.. The last Christmas special was pretty weak, made up for to a degree by a good Easter Special. The Xmas special with Donna and 'Timecrash' with Peter Davison were pretty super by comparison.
Tennant with Billie Piper was the best ~ I didn't like Eccleston much.
I just sold my Season 2 boxset, the Sarah Jane episode being the best.
I'll cherish the best from Tennant's tenure, much as I do with Tom Baker and Peter Davison. That's pretty much it for me.
Peace.. Through Superior Firepower.
