more on Doctor Who  
Ok, so I definitely like the new Doctor. I feel fine about the new companion. I thought it was a pretty good combination of adventure and light comedy, as it should be. The 45-minute complete story episode structure threw me a bit. Having grown up watching them on PBS, I'm used to 2-3 hour Doctor Who movies with cliffhangers every 25 minutes or so. But they managed that time well.

While this Doctor doesn't seem to mind getting into fights, he doesn't seem too skilled in judo anymore. Pertwee would have broken that Auton's grip easilly.

I was somewhat bothered by the fact that the conspiracy buff only had pictures of the Doctor's current incarnation, and didn't mention that the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce had a scientific advisor known only as the Doctor back in the 70s.

yeah I was a bit annoyed that they didn't show any other Doctor's photo's either. As long as they bring on a good Dalek story and stop repeating the same music through an episode I'll be happy.

Are all of the episodes going to be 45 minutes?

Yeah, they're making 13 45-minute episodes, although looking at the guest star list on Gallifreyone, it looks like there will be some two parters (4&5, 9&10) and possibly even a three-parter for the final three episodes.

Here are the known episode titles....

The End of the World
The Unquiet Dead
Aliens of London
10 Downing Street
#6: Untitled
The Long Game
#8: Untitled
The Empty Child
The Doctor Dances
Boom Town
#12: Untitled
The Parting of the Ways
