Exterminate, Exterminate, Exterminate……



Hi Y’all,

Back when I was a young’un, I used to love to watch the old Tom Baker shows of Doctor Who whenever they came on the TV. So when they brought back the new Doctor Who series on the Sci-Fi channel, I was looking forward to it very much. I have yet to be disappointed in the new version and I am very much waiting to see this coming season.

For me the true test of a re-vamp of something is if it makes me remember what I thought was cool about the original and want to go back and watch those again. Much like the new Battlestar Galactica made me want to watch the first one, this version of Doctor Who made me want to go back and watch the older ones. So being the Netflix Monkey that I am, I promptly added all the Dr Who disks to my pull list.

Christopher Eccleston give a good performance as the 9th doctor. Billie Piper is suitably yummy as his companion Rose Tyler. Their Dr Who adventures strike just the amount of sci-fi & British humor that this series needed.

The Sci Fi Channel is starting to put together quite a little roll with Dr Who, Battlestar Galactica, & the two Stargates. I hope they keep it up…..
