It's so odd to read complaints of how "slow" or "boring" it was...as if you were shown nothing but paint drying for the entire episode!
I'd like to know the ratio between those who found it boring and only started watching the show when RTD brought it back and those who enjoyed it and were fans of classic Who beforehand.

Not having a go or anything, I'm just being curious.
For whatever it's worth, I only started watching Doctor Who during the RTD years and was never bored once this entire episode. "Vincent and the Doctor" is one of the very few Doctor Who episodes I'd award 5 out of 5 stars -- right up there with "Father's Day," "The Girl in the Fireplace," "Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood," "Midnight," and "Turn Left."
