I'm a latecomer to Doctor Who and not the most dedicated watcher. I've gotten to the point where I get the basic premise, pretty much. But I'm also at the point where I don't know how much of what I consider basic is specific to the way David Tennant has played the part, and how much is basic to the role. But David Tennant has played the part as fairly light hearted mostly, good-spirited, and attractive. (Well, last night wasn't so light-hearted.)
And now there's a new Doctor.
(Do they ever have female doctors? Because at the switchover, it sounded like he was making a sexist comment about coming back as a "girl." Did I mis-hear?)
(I was half going to try to write this in verse, in imitation of Browning's "My Last Duchess," but I'm lousy at verse.)
