Doctor Who Returns

I'm sure there are a million other blogs and websites that have posted enthusiastic reviews of the first episode of the apparently long-awaited return of Doctor Who, but I'll add my voice to the throng.

It was good. Pretty good indeed. The Doctor managed to be funny and eccentric, and Billie Piper played a normal but nice girly sidekick well. I hope the series continues to be good as we get to know the characters a bit better.

I've never really seen any previous episodes of any previous series, and so I'm not a lifelong fan or anything, but what with the Beeb's huge promotion campaigns across all platforms, it was impossible to miss.
