The new Dr. Who on SciFi completely rocks.

Watched the new Dr. Who on Sci Fi -- just now available here in the U.S. All I can say is "perfect!" -- its just captured the spirit of the old series in its essentials, added some special effects without making them so good as to lose the low-budget feel, got a perfect Doctor character (CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON) and Rose (BILLIE PIPER) couldn't be more perfect under any circumstances (and isn't hard on the eyes at all, which is a nice bonus).

Just wait for the DaleksBy Neil on 03/20/2006 at 04:33 AM EDT
I dont know how far through the series you are but there is a Robert Shearman
story called "Dalek" loosly based on the Big Finish auido book "Jubilee"

I wont spoil it, but this is a great piece of television, and will give you a
new slant on the Daleks...

Ohh and watch out for the 2 parter (The Empty Child) .... good old behind the
sofa Doctor Who.

And if you think they are good wait until you see David Tennant as the new
doctor who... just fantastic!
