On IMDb, Doctor Who gets User Rating 8.8 out of 10 (7,151 votes), which is very high, so that hightens my interest.
Here is what "Neil from United Kingdom" writes about Doctor Who on IMDb:
"As a child I used to love the Dr Who series and apparently I used to hide behind the sofa whenever the Daleks appeared. I think it must have been the voice. But over time the whole idea lost so much of its charm that it became a real pain to watch.
Well all that has changed, Every nostalgic moment I ever had about the doctor has come flooding back with this highly enjoyable reanimation of a childhood favourite, even though I am now well into my thirties.
Christopher Eccleston is great in the lead and Billy Piper makes the archetypal sidekick. This new incarnation is full of the humour and tongue in cheek appeal that I hoped it would be. I just hope it keeps going as it started.
I have to give this a ten even if it's just because it's filmed in my home town of Cardiff, if not for the fact that is gives me a glimmer of what I liked in this series from when I was a very small child.
Thanks to everyone involved and keep it coming."
"I have now had the pleasure of watching through the fourth episode and can say that I think the new series is a delight - and no less a delight than the classic series. As with each Doctor, this is another take on the concept and it's a sharp one at that.
Eccleston's Doctor is the most alien Doctor of them all and his realization is a pleasure. Piper's Rose is the real surprise of the show, she's just very likable and has chutzpah.
This series seems to be less about the Doctor versus aliens than really examining the Doctor's relationship with his companions - why he does it, the psychology of a guy who would keep taking on these people and showing them the whole of the universe - and using the science fiction action as a backdrop. It's very Alan Moore actually. The Doctor comes off as a mix of overeager, kind, self-serving, egotistical, innocent, and many other traits. This is the most complex Doctor after Tom Baker."
