2.01 New Earth

Well, that certainly didn't disappoint...

...except maybe for the ending which I thought might have been a bit too pat (healing all the sick and infected with just a few bags of antidote?)...

...Cassandra! talking out of her backside! Although I initially thought it a shame to hear that The Doctor (my Doctor) hadn't managed to kill her dead after all, her continued existence did allow both Billie and David to showcase their talent in a different way. And that kiss! I'm so glad I never 'shipped Rose and this Doctor now -- and yet I still relish the 'shippy lines Cassandra-in-The-Doctor uttered about Rose having checked him out and liking what she saw.

...would people still say 'chav' in 5 billion years? Would they still speak English, for that matter?

...poor puddy tats being dragged off by the police at the end, esp. the nice sister who had sat with the Face of Boe.

...so the Face of Boe is to return once more, at which point he'll impart his wisdom? Oh well.

...what was Rose doing snogging that Mickey at the beginning? She really needs to let that boy go -- waiting around on her all the time, that's no life for him!

..."I'm The Doctor and I cured them all!" -- rather reminiscent of Nine and "This time, everybody lives!" I miss Nine. A lot.

...funny, how I seem to have read some of these scenes in fic already! The lying-in-the-grass side-by-side, e.g.

...can there be such a thing as too much CGI? I suddenly feel nostalgic for the shoestring budget sets of yesteryear.

Also, The Dalek Song.

aww my favourite part WAS the "chav" - how we did giggle ;) and the shippyness!

very good start - I miss Nine not one jot but he doesn't mind - Ten is cute.

Ten has his moments and on the whole< i do like him, but I can't help feelig that he's a bit of a lightweight compared to his predecessor and also quite judgmental -- the "There is no higher authority"and the way he he dealt with Harriet Jones in TCI...

But the ep was wonderful and I can't wait to see it again...now if my download finishes anytime soon, I can watch it again!

I finally just saw it! HOMG, that kiss and the way his face was all like 'woah' and how he watched her walk away was really funny. As well as his little high pitched 'well, still got it.'

Ah i laughed for a bit then. Also, loved Cassandra in the Doctors body and in Roses.

I'm with you on the cgi, a little too much for my tastes but the cat women were great and nicely done.

They say that in an interview somewhere, someone stated the the cat nuns were actually strokeable -- the makeup department had pulled out all the stops and covered the actresses in some sort of downy material.

And give me a good bodyswap (man in a woman's body, woman in a man's) anytime. I can't help it, I just love the absurdity, the exaggerated mannerisms, that are displayed as a result.

As to the kiss and the 'yup, still got it' -- I'm not so enthusiastic about that. Mainly because it's another cop-out (it wasn't really Rose) and because it's so obviously a nod to the 'shippers...and I can't help but think that if something like that would have happened to the ninth Doctor, he wouldn't have reacted so cavalierly. Of course, Ten already knew, must have known by that stage, that he wasn't dealing with Rose; but still...I don't think Nine could have brushed it off so easily.
