240 words.

I really don’t remember how the last season ended, and I haven’t yet seen the Christmas episode. (Thank’s for nothing, Netflix.)

00:00 - Who’s Hannah? Oh.

02:30 - WTF! They’re all grown up! And broken!

04:15 - Why doesn’t Matt Smith look human? His face is all … weird …

05:20 - And why is he slurring his words? I mean, more than usual for British television.

06:00 - The intro looks different somehow. The tunnel is more blue-green than blue. And, oh, that red fire is definitely new.

08:30 - Who is this red-haired chick with the Dalek thingy poking from her forehead?

09:45 - “You think hatred is beautiful.” “Perhaps that is why we have never been able to kill you.” Awesome.

10:15 - “What color?” LOL.

13:00 - “You’re going to fire me at a planet?!?” Hehe.

14:35 - I thought this guy was Micky at first.

20:15 - “How did he get all Dalek-ed?”

24:15 - “Eggs.” LOL. Classic Rory.

28:50 - I’m getting a bit tired of the mobile-camera-pointed-at-people’s-faces shots. Not just Dr. Who. They seem to be everywhere. Like people are filming movies with their iPhone front-facing cameras.

42:00 - Well that was predictable …

45:15 - So I guess she’ll be back later.

48:30 - Not bad for the opener. I kind of wish Murray Gold would come up with some new hero music for the Doctor though. It’s getting a bit old.
