It looks like even the fans have had positive things to say about Matt Smith’s debut episode judging by the comments we’ve been receiving from readers here at Whotopia HQ.

After  the Eleventh Hour, a new day begins. So it was with the first episode of the Moffat/Smith era. A new man with nods and winks to his predecessors, the Doctor is madder, more alien, and less worldweary. When the new Doctor says “sorry” you know he’s not gutted; it’s just his way of getting to the next amazing adventure.

I have to echo Steven Moffatt:  He’s awesome.  He reminds me a lot of Christopher Eccleston about the time of Aliens of London/World War III.  The solo banter and his interactions with Amy are alone worth watching.  “There’s no ducks!”  “There never was any!”  “Then how do you know it’s a duck pond?!”  Matt Smith will be an amazing turn-around from whiney David Tenant.  Looks like I’ll be watching episodes multiple times again…

The Eleventh Hour was 60 minutes of simply brilliant Doctor Who.  Matt Smith IS The Doctor and Karen Gillen is more than a match for the 11th Doctor.  As for the new TARDIS, quite simply beautiful.  Overall, a very, very strong Season opener that makes you want more.

I’ll admit it I was absolutely petrified about the arrival of Matt Smith and the new series of Doctor Who. Worried that it wouldn’t be the same, that somehow the current crisis of identity that the BBC is having forced on them may have altered the show to bad.  What if I didn’t take to it? What if it went so far off kilter I couldn’t recognize it anymore? What if we were heading into the new series version of the Colin Baker years? What if? What if Matt Smith was amazing? What if the story was funny, heart-breaking and action packed? What if when the show left me feeling all giddy and excited for the future? That’s what The Eleventh Hour was.

Oh wow… what a start! Both gripping and amusing writing from Steven Moffat with lovely nods to the past and subtle links to the future. Matt Smith simply shone as the Doctor; his mannerisms are a joy to watch, such an exciting actor… the future looks very bright.
