Hey there, I've been avoiding this forum to not get spoiled, but I'm beginning to watch the DW restart at long last. I saw many of the Hartnell-Troughton-Pertwee-T. Baker-Davison eps on US TV back in the late 80s, and really liked them, but didn't have time to watch the 2005 series and as I got behind didn't want to jump in the middle because of my respect for DW and how good I heard it was.
So far I've watched "Rose", "The End of the World", and "The Unquiet Dead"... I'd actually seen most of EotW before. I'd say it's been very impressive so far, living up to my high expectations. Eccleston is a great mix of serious and goofy at this point, and the chemistry w/Rose works for me.
Boy, I hope Eccleston does play Stannis in GoT next season... he'd be great.
And it's so
cool to be watching the Doctor again.
