It is so sad that Tennant had to leave, still, we know that is the way of The Doctor. I am anticipating the revelation of this gangly and unattractve character. I am a die hard Who fan and I would love to see the new series change my mind about the leading man. I would also like to see Rose and Tennants's Doctor, as well as, the Doctor's daughter come back with Martha for an episode or 2. Remember, He still looks like the old Doctor.

I always end up purchasing the DVD sets when they come out but I also grab the new eps via torrent immediately as well. I *would* watch the episodes on BBCA but they have those annoying pop up ads constantly and it constantly ruins the episode. Until BBCA gets their head out of their butts regarding that intrusive element, I'll keep downloading. And buy the DVD's later just so it's all on the up and up. :)

Actually, people with just a tiny bit of internet savvy were the first to see episode 2 the same day it aired in the UK... last weekend. It'll be nice for those in attendance to not have to sit through BBCA's edits or commercial breaks though!

+1 to prev. Anonymous. So glad I don't have to watch this in BBCA's diluted format. I will admit I was tempted to go just to watch the show with other fans (none of my friends watch). But a little too pricey for me right now. BTW REALLY wish I could've done the NYC premiere--Matt Smith, Steven Moffat AND Karen Gillan were there!
