Dying to know what you think Steve. I wasn't a huge fan of the TV movie- it really stopped for me with McCoy and consequently I didn't follow the books and audio stories with Paul in at all. I'd just taken the received wisdom that Paul was the "war doctor" that built up around the reboot. So this was interesting in that sense but I didn't get who the little old ladies at the fountain of youth were. Ho hum :)
I really enjoyed it actually, Alex. I wasn't a fan of the TV movie either, but watching this made me wish there had been more of Paul McGann's Doctor. Re: the old ladies, I guess we'll find at soon enough.
Gotta say I really liked this, Moffat's successfully steered Who back into my sphere of appreciation, albeit with a few hiccups on the way.
