Dear Steven Moffat, Matt Smith, Karen Gillen, et al...

I'm sorry for ever doubting you, even for a second. I'm sorry for thinking that there was even a chance that you'd mess it up in any way.

The new Doctor Who is brilliant, so far at least. The script was funny and clever, the acting was pretty good, the storyline was a superb bit of stand-alone sci fi in its own right. There was even a Geoff in it who saved the world with a laptop that looked suspiciously like it was running linux.

My original point, rambling aside, is it was an intelligent and well thought out piece of modern sci fi. It didn't rely on the brand, or the "sexiness" of the new actor (New chin? Blimey....) or even the special effects, which were clearly on a lower budget. It just stuck to canon, played with it a little to comic effect, and produced a story that Clarke or Asimov would've been proud of.

I like, and you can't take that away from day since I didn't die in a Cairngorm whiteout.

I liked the new look TARDIS too, very steampunk inspired :)
