I mentioned a while back that I was undecided on the new Doctor Who. Frankly, I sort of liked her, although something bothered me about the new show. When I watched the New Year's Spacial, which I liked, I realized what I didn't like. It's her crew--her travelling companions. I don't like any of them.
Now, historically, the doctor has traveled with a female companion. There have been many exceptions. Matt Smith traveled with a couple--Amy and Rory for quite a while. I didn't like Rory, either.
I guess, now that the doctor has had a sex change, traveling with a lone female might be viewed as strange. I don't know. I've said before she should get a dog--preferably a golden retriever. As far as traveling companions, I'd be happy to travel with her. I don't really like any of the whiny sniveling companions she has now and they should all go home. I did like the older black lady, but they killed her off. So much for what I think.
Maybe she should wander around by herself for a while. Maybe go to beaches in a skimpy bathing suit and play Frisbee with her new dog. I'd like that. And she could un-jam the sod machine with her sonic screwdriver. That would be awesome. And she could give dog treats to her dog. Even more awesome.
One last thought: They got rid of Unit due to budget cuts. I thought that was kind of clever, actually.
And that's my take on the new doctor, after a whole season went by. Of, course these BBC seasons are fairly short.
