I have just finished watching the first season (2005) of the 2nd series of Doctor Who (2005-present). Of course I had heard a lot of things about it, I knew the cult following after the 1st series (1963-1989). But I wasn't prepared for so much win, so much awesomeness.
It's not even a Geek thing, it's made for everyone as long as you are ready to digest the british humour, this wonderful and subtle blend of social satire/commentary, black humour, goofiness and (very) dark undertones - all "hidden" in the Sci-Fi epicness.
The show is so well written and conceptualized, it's incredible! The story arcs (from what I have already seen) are fantastic.
(From the first season) The Daleks are a fascinating depiction of the Humans' darkest aspects. The Siltheens were very interesting too (and I certainly hope "Margaret Blaine" will be seen again as a reborn Siltheen). The Time Lord, Rose and her family's psychological portraits were top quality too! Everything is perfect, let's be honest.
I mean... This is gold. And I can't wait to watch the rest!
What do you think of Doctor Who? Season 8 (and new Doctor) will start in 2 weeks and a half, I saw... So the moment to open this thread is appropriate.
Also, please, use the **spoiler** tag if you are about to describe the epidoses.
