I have some beef with Rose Tyler and the actress for a few reasons. The first being her first episode with the attack of the autons immediately followed by the End of the World. Unlike Pertwee or Baker, Eccleston did not give off a secure and safe atmosphere. I did not understand why Rose even joined the Doctor because there was no fun in the first few episodes, only horror. It might have been more appropriate for the Ninth to have done what the first did and just kidnap Rose, but her wanting to travel with him was not well written.
Second, her relationship with the tenth. Don't need to go into details. To me, the Doctor is platonic. True Susan came from somewhere, and the 'romance' in the Aztecs, but still, the Doctor is platonic.
Third, Billie Piper wanted to be the eleventh doctor. Nothing more to say on that.
Bad Wolf was more or less the BBC trying once more to be 'hip and cool' by connecting with younger audiences through graffiti. All the password stuff on the website, the whole nine yards... yeah, I didn't care for any of it.
The Dalek vs. The Cybermen was nothing special. This was the moment so many Doctor Who fans have been waiting for, the first encounter between the two and it... it... did not match expectations. A bit of good humor, but did not match expectations.
In fact, the Daleks should have won so many times now. It's ridiculous. The older Doctor's rarely fought against large groups of Daleks, ie Planet of the Daleks, but more often fought tiny bits of them like in Death to the Daleks or the Chase. As soon as there are hundreds of thousands of millions of them flying through space, the series is over. The Daleks have won. The fact that they keep all loosing somehow via self destruct buttons (Kudos to Destiny of the Daleks, but that was a few Daleks now millions) or void material, or Bad Wolf, etc seems in utter contradiction to what they were supposed to be. Their ability for horror has been replaced with a weird sort of slapstick due to a new Achilles Heel every appearance. Very reminiscent of the Cybermen. The Cybermen were given a new weakness virtually every appearance, up to three weaknesses a shot (radiation rods, their own weapons (surprising light since companions can easily pull them off the Cybermen, also very simple to use, point and click), emotion, gold dust, spray plastic, cold, etc).
The eleventh should by this point be like "Oh no, Daleks! Good thing I got my Anti Dalek ring. One push sends out a wave that blows em all sky high!"
Rory "How does that work Doctor? That makes no sense!"
Doctor "I'll explain later" *click* *Booom*
Davros "I name you Destroyer of the Daleeeeeeeeks!" *Boom*
Not to mention, oops, you touched a Dalek, now it's fully healed and more powerful than ever before!
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!
