In Which I Continue to be Critical

This season's "Doctor Who" seems to be... well, mostly crap. This isn't David Tennant's fault- he's brilliant considering the pretty tired scripts he's getting tossed. What's ruining the show is the sexual tension/platonic romance between him and his companion, Rose. First season, we had Rose with this silly little school girl crush on the Doctor, and that was cool. But now the Doctor has got this massive hard on for dramatic action every time she's threatened. He turns into a lunatic, and it's getting tired and old.

This really killed this weeks episode, which otherwise could have been pretty good. And it had a lot of strikes against it- like the central villian being the source of all myths of Satan. I mean, can we say cheesy? And it's a kinda fragrant British cheese. A Ploughman's Special. Not appetizing. But, y'know, I was gonna let that one slide if they did it well, and uh... they didn't.

Couple this with a string of mediocre episodes that lack the solid storytelling of last season... it's not looking good for the franchise. And because this change in story telling happened with the introduction of David Tennant, I fear that Tennant will be viewed as a poorer Doctor than he is. He's brilliant- the scripts are not.
