I tend to dip into (the new) Dr Who from time to time, and I think it's very hit and miss. I preferred Ecclestone as the Doctor too, but that's probably because I like his big ears and Manc accent.
Some episodes I can remember as being particularly good include the ones with the Slitheen, the Werewolf episode, and that one where they go down to that big pit and chat with satan.
Oh, did anybody catch the Weakest Link today? It was a Dr. Who special! K-9 was booted off unfairly in the initial round of voting, and Rose's mum won it. Hurray.
