    If you're looking for allegorical, intriguing science fiction, this isn't it. If you're OK with rapid-fire, light-hearted dialogue with an occasional dig at politics and culture, this "Doctor Who" is your cup of tea.

    A spiffy new version.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Marilyn Moss

    Silly, sophomoric stuff that is sure to please its television audience.

  • Sharon Eberson

    Some of the pop-culture humor and creatures owe a nod to "Farscape," but the camp level is high and can be mighty funny.

  • Matt Roush

    This remake achieves an Avengers-like balance of cheeky wit amid the cheesiness.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Charles McGrath

    Like so much British science fiction, especially Douglas Adams's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, this "Doctor Who" has a goofy, homemade quality; it's less interested in gizmos than in characters.

  • Despite a few missteps, there's much to recommend.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Joy Press

    The real disappointment of the new Who isn't its use of (slightly) slick special effects, though. It's a structural problem: Instead of stretching a storyline across a whole season, each adventure is resolved within a single episode, making this closer to your average detective series.

    It's pretty decent hokum--fast, corny, genial, honest in its schlock.
