Dr Who

The Sci Fi channel has just started showing the new Doctor Who series, and it is good.

Christopher Eccleston makes an excellent Doctor, kind of like a latter-day Tom Baker, similar irreverent sense of humour, just with a strong Lancastrian accent.

It shows great promise as a fitting continuation of one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time*.

The fact that the first episode I saw – “The Long Game” – also starred Simon Pegg (He of Shaun Of The Dead and Spaced fame) was a great bonus.

*You may groan at the pun. I'm feeling generous.
