Funny bits weren’t that funny.

Dramatic bits weren’t that dramatic.

The rest was a bit bland. Considering the competition, largely American I have to admit and largely post-watershed, this felt a little light and almost too fast-paced for it’s own good. Not sure what Christopher Eccleston was aiming for, but if it was “slightly weird in a slightly scary kinda way” then he nailed it but at the expense of looking like he was hamming it up, which is a shame because I think he is an excellent actor. Billie Piper was OK.

I’ll give it another couple of weeks but not a great return for Dr.Who.

Oh yes, I should mention that I rarely watched any of the originals, the odd episode here and there, hence the lack of fanboy excitement and gushing praise for something which was, at worst, mediocre TV.
