During the first season, Christopher Eccleston is credited as "Doctor Who", as set in the Classic Series. Beginning with the second season - reportedly at the behest of the show's new star, David Tennant - the credit has been changed to read "The Doctor". See more »
Season 8 in Australia is PG on television, and M on DVD. Science fiction themes and violence being the reason. 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.
