I kind of liked "Victory of the daleks" as it had the daleks actually using a fairly clever subterfuge instead of just shooting everything. Had the usual flaw of "Why didn't they  kill the doctor when they could have just shot him?"

It reminded me of modern american politics, I wonder if the writers were making a subtle commentary on modern america's political situation. The bronze daleks, which I liked, represented the old guard republican conservatives and the new daleks represented the teabaggers. "You are inferior! Purge the unclean! Exterminate! Exterminate!"

Kind of like how the teabaggers purged, or tried to purge, the moderate republicans by running teabagger candidates against any republican who was an iota short of raving lunatic in terms of fanaticism.

As to the new daleks, hate 'em. I agree, too soft and inflatable looking. I wonder if that was deliberate, making it possible to have inflatable daleks for crowd scenes or something. With modern CGI I doubt it would be needed though.

I have head that the new daleks can swap out their arms and weapons though, the old ones would travel along that track along the body to the hatch on the back where they'd go into a rack and a new weapon/arm would travel along the track to the forward box.

If that were shown the new daleks might at least be justified in having upgraded performance. The color thing sucks, it's like "Mighty morphin' power daleks go! Form exterminatazoid!" Yuk!

I think the cast is a bit thin, though. Seriously. The new doctor, amy and whatisname all look so skinny they need to stand in the same spot twice to cast a shadow.

I liked the last ep with tennant. I wonder if the master survived and if so how he could change after realizing what had been done to him and why he'd been driven to what he'd been. I wonder if he might even undergo a serious change of some sort. Hell, him telling the doctor to get out of the way and saving him from rassilon was a major change for him.

Saw the 2010 Christmas special. Kind of a neat twist on A Christmas Carol, which suits the Doctor perfectly, being a compulsive meddler with access to the past and future. I rather liked the unexpected way the doctor handled the scary future.

Looking forward to the upcoming season. Seems like the location shooting is much more ambitious than Doctor Who has had up to now. The preview at the end of the Christmas episode shows some scenes shot in the American southwest, which is presumably what Matt Smith was doing in the US when he was on Craig Ferguson's show.

We're all looking forward to the new season as well.

Since the last ep with The Master was mentioned...we were re-watching I, Claudius the other night and got to the point where Caligula (John Hurt) is complaining of being plagued by the sound of hoofbeats in his head.  The similarity to The Master in that episode was interesting.  (Though Caligula did not manage to gain the same sympathy.)

From what I remember of the interview with Craig Ferguson, he mentioned shooting scenes in Arizona, New Mexico and I think Las Vegas.  Then I think he mentioned they visited but didn't shoot in Los Angelas, San Francisco and New York.

I don't recall very much location shooting in the entire history of the show, and usually just simple places they could probably drive to. The original series was done very much in the style of a play, done mainly on indoor sets, with occasional outdoor scenes in nondescript British locales. The new show has done a bit more, but actually going overseas and shooting desert vistas and whatnot is a first for Doctor Who. I wonder if it's an attempt to make the show more attractive to American broadcasters.

The next series is being partly funded by BBC America so that might be why. I think it just be the opening two parter thats in the US. And they're trying to make the best out of it they can.

Who did shoot in Dubai for Planet of the Dead and it looked great.

Just noting that the new season starts later this month, and I'm happy that for the first time, it will be airing everywhere at the same time. Used to have to wait a couple of months for it to air in Canada.

And there is another teaser out:

I'm still reeeeeally not happy about the Matt Smith version of The Doctor (although I think Amy Pond makes for a great companion, both because of her acting, her characterization, and, well, her aesthetic value... mrowr), but I'm nevertheless hopelessly addicted to the show. I'm still unsure about how I think the show is going since it changed hands (and faces). I feel like the previous season was still very strong, despite my initial reservations, but there were also many things I disliked (I particularly felt that the weeping angels two-parter just completely ruined the weeping angels as a villain forever, overcomplicating a concept that was chillingly simple as well as revealing far too much about an idea that

was more interesting when it was mysterious). It was probably about even (pushed more in the direction of  Thumbup thanks to the wonderful Christmas Carol-inspired holiday special), so I'm waiting for this new season to really help me make an ultimate decision about whether or not I like the direction the series is going in.
