Enjoyable teaser, but my initial thoughts are that of Rose's... "Can you change back?".

I hope he calms down a bit, of course it's become a bit of a trend that a new Doctor has to make an impact, which usually means acting like an arse for the first episode.

Er.. am I the only one who thought she mimed (badly) then? Thought it was pretty obvious. Peter was singing live, mind.

She mimed, but I think her last verse was live.

My step-dad got really annoyed at me when I said that Jordan was miming! He had never heard of her before, and when I explained she was an idiot with fake breasts he accused me of just being mean about her "because it's fashionable" or something.

The even stranger thing was this...later, I was praising the Pussycat Dolls for showing us how a live act should be done, and he claimed that the lead singer was miming.

Peter and Jordan were pretty bad (miming or not) but sadly not as bad as Mel C and Bryan Adams. For a duet their voices are like chalk and chalk - down a blackboard.

Well i quite liked it, certainly was a teaser and now i am looking forward to it.
As for miming, yes Jordan sure was,Peter was live but for really bad Girls Aloud at Raf Bris Norton mimed really badly, it was a sthough they couldn't be bothered at all. At the least The Quo and Madge sang live.
Anyway bring on the Christmas invasion and does Billy look sexier than before?

Oh dear, oh dear oh dear.

Usual piece of CIN rubbish - using a popular programme to try and entice an audience to watch the worst night of television in the year and then feel oh so good about themselves when they dnate some money!

The good old British mentality of being SEEN to GIVE!

I hate it when they use great programmes in order to entice the audience in.

Blackadder did it, and was rubbish.

Now Doctor Who did it, and that was rubbish too.

What exactly did we learn from that teaser? Apart from the fact that David Tennant looks like he's going to be a poor replacement for the wonderful Ecclestone?

Pointless waste of time.

It's very easy to be cynical about CIN but it does raise a lot of money for numerous good causes. If that means Johnny businessman gets to wave his big cheque (advert) to the nation then so be it. Some people actually find the evenings entertainment enjoyable otherwise nobody would watch it.

I agree to a certain extent but it's way too early to say what Tennant will be like until I see at least a full episode.

Tennant's going to be just fine. I can't believe he is being judged on his very first five minutes as The Doctor.

I get the feeling that what we saw was indeed the first five minutes of the Christmas Special. There's too much important dialogue in there that couldn't be summed up in a 'Previously on Doctor Who' segment before the actual episode begins.

Also, there was at least one special effect (when the regeneration starts to go wrong) that I doubt would have been budgeted for a five minute Children in Need 'special'.

I can get sound if I set it to Real Player, but not with Windows media player. I getthe usual problem I seem to have with BBC video - windows media gives me a picture about the size of a postage stamp, and real player gives me a set of still images rather than a moving picture. I never seem to have this problem with other sites, have no idea what I'm doing wrong.


Like other poeple, thought DT was great, and I'm sure the OT style will calm down (hopping?). It did seem like the first 2 minutes of the christams special though...

Looked pretty good, and as mentioned felt very much indeed like the first 7 minutes of the Xmas special. If it wasn't - then I'd expect it to get repeated quite a few times in the run up to the special (in itself not a bad marketing idea...).

Very hard to tell what Tennant will be like based on these 5 minutes though - but this is clearly gearing up to be must-watch TV for Xmas day.

I thought he looked alright from what was shown but will obviously have a better idea on the Christmas outing.

No way, no how. If that scene turns up on 'The Christmas Invasion', I'll give you my entire DVD collection -- and you can quote me on that.

It had filler material written all over it. And that's no criticism -- it was just a bit of fun for charity.

Yeah in agreement with Nicola, I suppose its because I enjoyed Ecclestone so much as the Doctor

No, it was filmed about two weeks ago and was not a part of the christmas episode. I thought it was a really well written scene. Didn't like Tennant much though.

He didn't seem too promising at first with all the skipping around but with the whole regeneration failure bit and starting to go manic it got far more interesting. Yeah we've seen it all before but it could add a darker tone to the character as from the very brief glimpse he was a bit too jolly.

Kind of reminds me of Patrick Troughton's first episode (for those who've seen the few surviving clips or the edited together version from stills and clips). He was kind of skipping around and a bit manic.

Far too short to tell yet though, and you have to consider this was light hearted for CiN.

Nice to hear some of the sound effects, though may have been tounge in cheek just chucking in all kinds of sounds for nostalgia. Probably won't hear them again (though cloister bell would be cool).
