It was good and I'm enjoying it even more on the second viewing.

I thought the Xmas special was OK, a bit slow until Tennant got on his feet, but then it was great fun. I really took to him as The Doctor - can't wait to see what he makes of the role in season two.

As for Sarah Jane looking old, well she's now 57, so not surprising she's looking a bit older than she did in Tom's era!

Here's a screen capture of K9....

If its who I think you mean, its Sarah-Jane Smith, a companion from the original series in the 1970s.

Well as I expected DT was better than CE but the woeful scripts, directing and acting still remained

The interactive stuff was probably better than the show itself, although the interactive portion was a bit crappy

Anyone listened to the commentary that's on the BBC site with the episode yet? I've downloaded it but have already deleted the episode from my SKY+

IIRC there were only allowed to be 7 Dr reincarnations so how did they explain this discrepancy away?

Great stuff. Still haven't seen the entire Christopher Ecclestone series with being away most of last year, but I already like David Tennant much more! Not that I'm not a fan of Christopher Ecclestone...

Heard an interview with DT on Radio One the other day and he seems a good lad too! Funny guy

I think it was 12 regenerations, giving a total of 13 Doctors.
There was a series that 'recharged' another Timelord's regenerative powers though, so this could also happen when the Doctor looks like he's running out.

I thought it was superb. Tennant is shaping up to be as good as I hoped he would be, and a massive improvement over Christopher Ecclestone IMHO. Loads of laugh out loud lines, and he also has that slightly sinister side that classic Doctors have had.

Is there any way to still access Attack of the Graske? I didn't watch the episode 'live'.

Whilst I have no problems with Tennant as the new Doctor I thought the story was average at best and wasn't a patch on some of the episodes in the first series.

I quite enjoyed it although it had plot holes you could drive a spaceship through.

Enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how he develops as the Doctor, wasn't totally blown away by it though.

The probe 'bouncing' off the ship and then gliding into it rather than getting smashed to smithereens made me roll my eyes. Anyway, roll on the new series.

it was nice in a "all the family watched it" way. Plot was pahhh, the thought of tea being the solution was just cringy. but it was all right.

i prefer CE as he was dead sexy. but the new one will be fine.

Am hoping they show the last one of the first series again soon, whats the name of it, bbc3 were showing last week but i could not work out what the final one was. I saw up to trinny and susannah and missed the final ones.

I think the last episodes called 'The Parting of the Ways'.

Doctor Who beat it's old enemy Coronation Street in the Christmas ratings with an overnight figure of 9.8m. Eastenders was the most watched programme with 10.8 million.
