"Hello, I'm the Doctor. Basically.....Run.", 3 April 2010
Author: 1stbrigade from United States

After months of intense speculation and anticipation, the new series of "Doctor Who" finally hits the screen three months after the departure of the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Many questions were asked: Would Matt Smith be a worthy successor to Tennant, voted by many to be the most popular Doctor ever? Could new head-writer and executive producer Steven Moffat be able to deliver strong storytelling in the wake of Russell T. Davies' Departure? And most important of all, would "Doctor Who" survive these changes and more? The answer to all three questions is a most definite YES! While the first episode of the show, "The Eleventh Hour," begins kind of awkwardly in the first fifteen minutes, those weak points give way to one of the best season openers to date. Matt Smith is BRILLIANT as the Doctor in the first episode, proving he has what it takes, even at 27, to take the reigns of the Tardis from David Tennant. Karen Gillan proves to be a great choice as Amy Pond, the beautiful and sassy new companion. Brilliant writing, hilarious moments and terrific visuals all prove one thing: "Doctor Who" lives on! Grade: A
