The "New" Dr. Who, on SciFi

93, all!

The SciFi channel (yes, we pronounce it "skiffy," for eld fanz are we) has started running the 2005 EV episodes of Dr. Who. Having loved the ancient Tom Baker eps, what, upwards of twenty years ago?, and been somewhat less impressed with the TV movie in the '90s, I had little hope -- but we took a gander anyway.

Three episodes in, I highly recommend this stuff. Eps one and two were spectacular, especially the latter ("The End of the World"), and ep three, "The Unquiet Dead," was fun as well. Worth a look, says we. :D

P.S. Unless it's a spoiler (and they just haven't got to it yet), what happened to poor Gallifrey? (See what happens when you miss a paltry two or three decades' worth of shows...?)
