A good season for the doctor. This is my third time seeing the 2005 Dr. Who, the first being the once-free Itunes episode from the 2010 season (without ads!!!), and the second being the xmas special from 2011 which borrowed from Narnia. The 2012 season opener has elements borrowed from Empire Strikes Back (the robot eye popping out of the snow), and the Daleks are more menancing than ever. I like the end of the show, when Dr. Who gets questioned by the Daleks. All in all, good special effects, decent sound mixing, and a fast pace. The only thing i didn't like is the british accents; at least i have to deal with it, it's a wholly british show aimed at sci-fi nerds. Can't wait to see next week's episode, which will feature the Doctor facing dinosaurs!!! Hopefully Fios offers Dr. Who on demand in hd without commercials, the way the BBC shows it on TV in england as well as in australia.
