Mostly harmless.
15 May 2006 | by (NY, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember growing up as a young "Doctor Who" fan in the USA in the 1980s. None of my friends were into it, in fact almost nobody I knew even knew what "Doctor Who" was, and there was no fandom I could participate in. Now I'm a poorly aging "Doctor Who" fan, glued to the new series, but this time other people are into it. The show is huge in the UK, and in the US things are catching on as well.

Which brings me to this show. As I watch it, of course there are a few things that grate against me. The hosts seem contractually required to say "totally" at least three times per sentence (ill-advisedly dragging that particular bit of slang back from its 1980s grave,) I can't get into the "companion academy" segments at all, and the female presenter sounds like she has been smoking cigarettes since age seven, or using a wire bottle-brush inside her throat.

But, it's a kids' show! And once I managed to relax my jaded 28-year-old scifi nut sensibilities, watch the charming interviews and the fun documentary segments, grin at the kids' artwork they send in, groove off the cheesy-yet-fun chemistry the hosts have with each other, enjoy the previews, and get dazzled by the guest stars, it blows me away thinking about how had something like this been around (and in my country) when I was a kid, this show would probably have been my second-favorite ever, second only to "Doctor Who" itself.

All in all, this show is a basically fun extra touch of "Doctor Who" for young fans, especially those still a bit too young to get into "Doctor Who Confidential." It's also not bad for the older fans who can watch it in the right spirits.
