"There are no monsters in the Oval Office."Last season I didn't post a single review of any Doctor Who episodes. That was all my fault: had some things I was dealing with at the time and couldn't commit to giving this show the respect that it deserves.
So... what do I think of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor? He's become my favorite incarnation of the Doctor since the series was revived in 2005... and right up there with Tom Baker's and Jon Pertwee's versions as my all-time favorite Doctor ever. Smith has been a sheer hoot to watch in action! And this past season was the best yet since Doctor Who was brought back into production. Steven Moffat has not disappointed since taking over as showrunner.
The next season begins on Easter weekend. Supposedly this season will see the return of the Daleks, the return of the original Cybermen (not those mass-produced ones from the alternate timeline), an episode written by Neil Gaiman, and the first-ever Doctor Who episode filmed in the United States.
And it looks like Moffat and his crew are gonna play the American angle to the hilt. Check out this "prequel teaser", featuring President Richard Nixon talking on the Oval Office phone with a voice that is sinister, childlike and... familiar?
"The Impossible Astronaut", the first episode of the new season, airs on April 23rd on the BBC and BBC America! Time to start making room on my DVR :-P
