Whoe else is going to watch this?

Will it be any good? Will they have those expensive special effects again ? Will it be hide behind the sofa time?

Me! Me! Me!

Don't forget there's a behind-the-scenes programme on afterwards on BBC3 too.

DH is planning on watching it; he seems quite excited about it!

I never did like Dr.Who when I was younger, but am having to watch it because my ds is all excited about it!

WideWebWitch Sat 26-Mar-05 18:52:35

WE're going to watch it in a minute.I'm not keen on Billie Piper but we'll see.

I like the new doctor - definitely phwoar factor

My dh is a massive Dr Who fan and has been driving me mad about this. It coincides with the kids' wind-down and bedtime routine too so I am going to do it all on my own, so I am seriously pissed off with his priorities.

I have come on MN to get away from it all, and here you are discussing it too.

Sod the kids - let them hide behind the sofa while you watch it ... this is important!!

GeorginaA Sat 26-Mar-05 19:22:58

Nice that the beeb have kept the traditional low budget for the baddies

MistressMary Sat 26-Mar-05 19:45:33

So what did you think then?

wobblyknicks Sat 26-Mar-05 19:48:26

OMG - I fancy Christopher Eccleston SO much now!!!!

GeorginaA Sat 26-Mar-05 19:50:28


Loved it loved it loved it Stuck to the spirit of the original too with the humour.

wobblyknicks Sat 26-Mar-05 19:51:38

Definitely - even Billie wasn't quite as rubbish as I expected. But CE was fantastic! If I was her I wouldn't have needed him to ask twice, would have been right in there!!!

wobblyknicks Sat 26-Mar-05 19:52:29

Just his cheeky grin and accent do it for me!!

GeorginaA Sat 26-Mar-05 19:54:14

He's a brilliant Doctor. Almost as good as Tom Baker & Peter Davidson...

wobblyknicks Sat 26-Mar-05 19:55:05

Definitely - almost like a young Tom Baker, excellent!

Hated Dr who as a child, but was outnumbered by sister and brother.

That was excellent, bilborough is just awesome, sorry meant the Doctor.

I really really enjoyed that, it is quirky and humorous and I would give Chris E, six weeks to get out of my bed

LGJ Sat 26-Mar-05 19:57:36

Better than Tom Baker. I always felt that he was reading from a script.

noddyholder Sat 26-Mar-05 19:58:23

fab!I really hope they beat ant and dec in the ratings as they have david beckham as a guest in the hope of beating doctor who.I am so glad so many of us watched it it is so much better than the usual sat night drivel and if viewers demand better programs and watch them perhaps tv will get better Agree CE is gorgeous and billie is really good looking forward to next weeks

Move over Liam Neeson, Christopher Eccleston is back on top of the list.

Read some where that he and Billie Piper got it together, whilst filming, lucky B.

I didn't think I would have the slightest interest in this programme, never watched it as a child, and had no intentions of watching it this time round neither.
But got to admit that whilst my dp was watching I became more and more fascinated with the whole thing. What a great programme, and good humour as well. Only annoying thing was my ds kept wanting explanations for it every 2 mins.

"Plenty of planets have a North too!"


I loved it! Just cheesy enough but with enough modern twist to make it interesting too!

I wonder how they will bring back the Daleks...

"Oh no here come the Daleks! Quick everyone - run upstairs!"

Is tonights espisode going to be shown again?

LGJ Sat 26-Mar-05 20:04:05

Well.......... maybe, its gone time travelling, it will be back in 3 million light years

piffle Sat 26-Mar-05 20:04:52

another who ran from the living room as soon as heard dr who music as a child.
DH refused to not watch it
Cheesy, but I quite liked it
I do adore Chris Eccleston esp from Our Friends in the North...
