After an old friend (Guigui) shared how ecstatic he was about the Doctor Who saga, I then went ahead and tried to discover it for myself.
I opened up Netflix and searched for Doctor Who, and since the original series was not there, I simply chose the oldest episode I could find. This is that episode. Season 5, episode 1.
Here we go!
As I expected, being a UK show, the format is clearly different from the usual US cinemascope-like series. But you know what? That felt actually pretty good! Because the show, or at least that particular episode, is very good!
I was really surprised by the excellent quality of the soundtrack. The music, obviously recorded with a real live orchestra, is such an important part of that episode, and gives it a fantastic feeling.
As I discovered, this is the first episode of lead actor Matt Smith. And I was, once again, quite surprised, as he seems like the perfect fit. Smith is beautifully portraying this fun and wit character.
Meanwhile, the story is really interesting, with Doctor Who meeting a young girl, only to reappear 12 years later.
