Wow.

I was really dubious.

But no. He was brilliant!

I was dubious too but was very impressed by the opening performance and at how well Matt Smith slipped into the roll. A couple of times I thought his delivery was similar to that of David Tennant - and then I forgot all about Doctor 10 and was swept away by the new energy of 11.

That's exactly how I was, too!

He was excellent! It took me a while to warm to David Tennant and thought it might be the same with Matt Smith, but he slipped into the role effortlessly.

I was stunned. He managed to be the tenth doctor and yet not the tenth doctor. By the time he was eating fish fingers and custard and slipping in the bit about 'that crack in your wall must be really scary', I was completely hooked!

Oh, yeah verily(lol). He delivered, and Amy Pond is my kinda gal.

I'm so relieved because I didn't expect it.

And Amy's great, isn't she? Giving her that history with him was inspired.

Hey! After you commented on my d/hr fic I had a peek at your journal and saw this entry. I just the Doctor Who ep - I'm loving him as eleven too! I thought I might actually not bother with Doctor Who anymore, not because of Matt Smith or anything but because I was getting a bit bored of the series recently. Not anymore!

Hello!

I was getting a bit bored of the series recently

I thought David Tennant's later stories had too much angst in them. I really liked the way this episode showed the impact of time travel, but kept it light-hearted. I thought it was particularly well-written. I hope they keep that tone.

Yeah I felt that way too. Do you reckon he and Amy will fall in love? Or is it too soon after Rose?

Well, I think it's interesting that they've got a much younger companion for a much 'younger' doctor. And she's obviously already obsessed with him. But on Dr Who Confidential they kept saying that Amy will be inclined to be stroppy with him because he's already let her down so many times.

Ahhh the confidential wasn't part of my torrent! Hmm. Maybe a fiery relationship? Anyway, we'll see. I got so teary in the scene where he asked her to believe him for 20 minutes and showed her the apple, and there was that big silence between them. Beautiful moment between the two of them, don't you think?

Apparently, they tweaked the camera, so that bit was in slight slow-motion...

(I think they're toying with us :-)

I'm so glad you like him. I think he's awesome. I'd started to suspect I was going to like him, but i had no idea he'd be this good.

I can't believe how quickly he won me over, and how effortlessly he handles every challenge! I like Amy, too -- I've always wanted to see a companion who's capable of saving the day.
