Just watched the new Who, and I gotta give it the thumbs up. Corny? Bad effects? Goofy? Oh, hell yes. But y'know? That's Doctor Who for ya. It's got a few problems, IMO, but they didn't interfere with my overall enjoyment. The music isn't that great, and the opening montage of the soon-to-be companion bored me, but overall?
This is a very appropriate continuation of the Doctor's mythos.
