The Silurians episode was ok, but it was the same both times with the Third Doctor. I never particularly liked the story the first time it was told, to have it appear again was eh.
The strongest regeneration story for me was Spearhead in Space. The eleventh's was very confusing. He comes in to a house of a little girl, tries to be funny (Maybe it's British humor, but the scene was just not funny to me), the girl tells him there are demons in her house and the Doctor decides to warp off with a "I'll be back." Tom Baker would've been investigating immediately, especially since he sensed the presence of the 'demons.' Then Amy, 20 years later, shows up as a kissogram.
I will admit, I sort of liked people recognizing the Doctor based off the stories Amy told, but everything else...
The Eleventh's confusing deductions with the camera zooming everywhere, the monster shows up for only a minute and a half for all the build up, the Doctor does grandstanding in front of the Atraxi. As 'cool' as this is, it's not something the Doctor would ever do. The companions constantly calling him 'clever' 'witty' etc, is unnecessary. That should be conveyed in the script, we don't need everyone in the show talking him up (a problem in general through New Who).
The last major problem for this, as well as the next two serials was that Matt Smith couldn't talk over the background music. There was several points where I could not hear what he was saying at all no matter how many times I rewound and turned up the volume.
Moffat and Smith get some reprise though since this was the first time Moffat got to be director, he was getting used to his role.
This was Smith's first time as the Doctor, much less he did not have much acting under his belt before joining unlike the older 'seasoned' actors.
The Sarah Jane Adventures, I was happy to see her with her own show and having fun and bringing in a new audience, but I could never get into it myself. I tried several episodes, starting with the pilot, and a handful of others, but the three problems I had were the absurdness (Sonic lipstick, vultures as villains, alien's using soda for mind control, etc. Minor complaint, it's more kid orientated), moral dissonance (having the slitheen parents beg for their child to be saved and to have it killed anyways, I thought this was more kids orientated.), and Sarah Jane being 'dumbed down' a bit. Sarah Jane, during her run, was constantly everywhere and on the cutting edge, but for the sake of balance in her series, they made her 'weaker' so that the kids would seem smarter and better. If I had been doing the series, I would have the kids constantly in the library, constantly reading her journals (Luke might notice errors in her reports occasionally that could be followed up, etc.) The show would not necessarily need to be educational, but encouraging education would easily be a secondary effect of keeping the show in a more 'realistic' approach. No complaints with the actors or anything else, but unfortunately they just were not able to make the show for me.
I would love to see the Meddler and some of the other renegades. I sort of liked Pip and Jane Baker. I agree that the Trial of a Timelord seemed wandering, but I really enjoyed the ending. I read up on the original plannings for the ending, Peri was supposed to die, etc, but I feel that JNT made the right choice with having Pip and Jane cap it off with a happier ending to wrap up the season.
And most first episodes tend to be strange, such as Robot.
Si-Fy and Fantasy, that is where my heart lies. To Doctor Who and its 18 years of brilliance, still waiting on the 50 yr anniversary!
