The further adventures in time and space of the alien adventurer known as the Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady who can change appearance and gender by regenerating when near death, and his/her human companions.
The Doctor, a Time Lord from the race whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in his/her ship the TARDIS (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time he/she regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).Written by
Russell T. Davies did not audition any actors for the role of the Tenth Doctor, as he had recently finished working with David Tennant, and believed him to be perfect for the role. Tennant was first approached about the possibility of playing the Tenth Doctor at a screening of Doctor Who: Rose (2005) at Davies' house on March 23, 2005. Contrary to fan-invented belief, Tennant was never considered for the role of the Ninth Doctor. See more »

In Season 5, Amy has a prologue that only exists in syndicated versions and isn't present in the original UK airings. It doesn't appear on home media (DVD) either. See more »
Too many promises!
The Christmas episode ended with a big cliffhanger. And it was not solved at all. Why the Tardis is throwing out the new doctor? How does she survive the fall? All this is thrown away like Luke Skywalker throws his lightsaber.
She is coping David Tennant's doctor without adding anything new to the character. (Except a funny outfit.)
Many storylines are filled with a teacher like lesson. Complete useless for the story, and therefore just annoying.
The doctor is the companion!
Many episodes are not about the doctor. She remains only a marginal figure. The companions are often the main characters here. It also lacks a matching opponent. A villain, the doctor can prove herself as a hero. It's missing.
And all that makes the show trivial and boring.
