The SciFI Channel aired the first two episodes of Doctor Who series two tonight. I like the show. It has a nice mix of adult “nudge-nudge, wink-wink” humor and good ol’ fashioned camp, which the kids seem to like. The new Doctor seems to be good fit. (And I still think he has a bit of a Davy Jones thing going on.)
As per usual, I watched with my daughter, who loves it. On one of the episodes, one of the characters loses a hand in a swordfight, to which my apparently geek-in-training daughter replied, “That’s just like Star Wars. I think the people that made this saw Star Wars.”
Could I be more proud? I think not.
