For the record, I've probably watched more of this television show than any other (with the possible exception of the Simpsons). I love the creepy effectiveness of the very first sequence, but love the velocity of the Tennant era. As for the actors, I remain devoted to Tom Baker. But Matt Smith is really quite wonderfully dark. I remain an addict. It's such an intelligent sci-fi show - not least because of its love of history and irony and a certain British decency which courses through the Doctor's inhuman veins. He is the anti-Jack Bauer, in a way, proving that humaneness and humor is as effective as violence and evil, even when deployed by those who think they are doing good.
