Doctor Who, a Nerd confidential... After being back on the air for 6 years - its time to cancel Doctor Who again. Sad, really. A huge fan for decades, I hated to see the new Doctor Who marred by bad acting, rushed lines, and shoddy writing. Over acting by David Tennant, and hackneyed romanticism are only two examples of this bad production. (BTW -Doctor Who is not a romance! There is no crying in Doctor Who!) Doctor Who was never about lavish productions or computer graphics, but was a classic SciFi adventure built around by great character driven stories, solid acting performances, and fantastic imagination. Even at a low ebb, most Doctor Who episodes of the first 25 years were lightyears ahead of their time. If Doctor Who was ever about ANYTHING it was about trascendence, of limits, real or perceived, of course. The new Doctor Who was schmultz, contrived and over dramatized which offended the higher than normal intellect of its ever devoted fanbase. As competent as some of the actors involved are, they were forced into over performing lackluster predictable plots, rushing thru overly convoluted crap that would test the patience of the nerdiest Asimov fan, bored by detail. To make it worse, the writers introduced new agey crystals, and Harry Potter potions, and other unbelievable fimsy hocus pocus, too numerous to mention. Also, major plot mishaps happened as Eccelston disappeared after 6 months, and fans cried foul, harkening back to the 80's when the much beloved Colin Baker was axed, much to their dismay. Then, the Galifreyans were snuffed out,an always entertaining source for endless mystery and intrigues (see the classic "Trial of a Timelord " again for reminders) and endless fun. Does this mean Capt. Picard was right, that "all good things must end"? Does this mean I have to finally "grow up"? Goodbye, Doctor.
