Hope for Doctor Who

Watching the revived Doctor Who over the past 5 years has been a dispiriting experience.  All melodramatic mouth, no intellectual trousers.  But Russell T Davros has moved on to be replaced by Stephen Moffatt - of Coupling and Weeping Angels fame and the first episode with him in charge was screened last night.

And the verdict?  Too early to say yet but its certainly encouraging.  Much more engaging.  I almost felt that Moffatt was succeeding in getting Davies’s ideas to work.

  1. Still haven’t found time to watch it but it’s on my Sky box. I’m hopeful about Moffat.  Coupling was pretty good, especially some of the clever episodes where the same story was told from different viewpoints, or in flashback, or whatever.

  2. Even more importantly, “Stephen Moffat of Press Gang fame”
