It is a shame this was not aired...
18 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...however I have just watched the new series of Dr Who, 2005, the last episode was aired today as it goes. It was an excellent series and the writing, acting and production were first class!

The writer for the entire series was Russell T Davies, creator of "Queer as Folk".

Christopher Eccleston (The Dr) decided shortly after the first episode was aired that he would not do a second series so the last episode features a famous Time Lord regeneration phase at the very end, the Dr for the 2006 series emerges as none other than David Tennant (mentioned as the Caretaker's voice in this listing and recently seen in "Casanova" on the BBC).

I highly recommend the series aired in 2005, a cracking return to TV after the last series in 1989 (when it looked like Dr Who was to be canned for good!) and if "Casanova" was a judgement call then Tennant will be every bit as good in 2006!
