21st Century Doctor Who

I’m sure there are plenty of Dr. Who fans out there posting detailed dissections of tonight’s first new episode, so I shall limit myself to just two comments:

  1. In the trailers and promo pics, Christopher Eccleston looked very dull — his image lacked the flamboyant insanity of his predecessors. However, in motion, he is fantastic — just slightly insane enough you really do wonder what he will do/say next.
  2. The interior of the TARDIS is too dark. It used to look like a science lab and be really bright — the whole point being that it was the one place you knew the Doctor and his companions were safe because there were no shadows for monsters to leap out from.

Anyway, I’m definitely looking forward to next week’s. 🙂
