I watched the Season 6 (or 32) premiere of Dr Who last night. My first Dr Who in years. Wow, the pace has changed! Talk about in medias res. Whap, whap, whap: the writers/producers were certainly not catering to the lowest common denominator. Lovely! But the special effects haven’t got anymore sophisticated (sigh), the theme music is quite dreadful, and the UK actors definitely need dialogue coaches to improve their US accents.

But, oh, what fun! And with a definite emotional kernel. I will be tuning in next week. Go watch it.
