Doctor Who 3.03 Gridlock

In 2005, it didn't take me long to fall truly, madly, deeply in love with the all new Doctor Who-series and the ninth incarnation of The Doctor, who I started out loving as much as The Doctor I grew up with (Four), and then cranked it up a notch, or two. I cried when he regenerated, and mourned his loss for weeks after. I hoped that I would come to love his tenth incarnation equally as much, but sadly, it wasn't to be. Ten has his moments, but on the whole I find him a bit over-zealous, a bit over-shouty, and frankly, a bit annoying really.

Three episodes in to this year's series, my opinion of him hasn't changed. I kind of like his new companion, though. But the writing's on the wall as far as this fandom's concerned, I think -- what else could it mean if out of three episodes aired, I totally forget to tune in for the first (and only took the trouble to download and watch it days later), forget to tune in for and miss the first half hour of the second (and still haven't caught up with the bits I missed), and then forget to tune in and miss the first ten minutes of the third?
