I wish there were a way to grab all of one sort of tag from across one's friendslist.

In other words, I have finally moved on to watching the new season of Doctor Who, and want to know why I should be bonding with Eleven.

Because I'm not bonding. But it seriously took me about eight episodes to bond with Ten (though I stopped wailing about wanting Nine back somewhere around the third ep). And by the end, I loved Ten as much as I loved Nine (if not much more, but hey). I'm hoping that happens here, too...

Anyway, if you feel passionately about Eleven (either direction), and want me to understand why, if you drop me a comment with your Who tags, I'll loff you forever. Or at least a good long while.

Tennant remains my favorite Doctor of all time, but I very much like Smith's take on the character. I'm a little surprised he didn't grow on you just through his first episode--he did me--but he continues to do so throughout the season. He's a different Doctor than Ten (or Nine); quirkier, perhaps one could even say "madder." It, plus the actor's age, can be a bit jarring at first. But as the season progresses, he really makes the part his own--and, most impressively, really makes you believe that he's an old, old, old man who happens to be wearing a young body. And his performance in the two-part season finale is absolutely astonishing.

Or, in short, if it took Tennant a while to grab you, give Smith at least as long. He'll win you over.

BTW, forgive me for not linking to my Who tags, but over half of my Who posts are actually cross-posted from my website, and thus not tagged at all.

Hm. I liked him better in the first ep than in the later handful, actually.

Well, in any case, there's no giving up on Who in our house; I just, you know. Want to know if I'm going to be doing anything but twiddling my thumbs and waiting for Dr. Song to show back up.

The two episodes immediately following "The Eleventh Hour" are among the weakest of the season. I don't think you'll be twiddling your thumbs.
