    I am a fan, there does seem to be a lot of homosexual inuendo though, probably due to the fact the writer Russel Davis and the chap who plays Jack Harness are both homosexuals.

    I don't know , I think it has pretty much stayed true to itself , being *just* scary enough to want to hide behind the sofa
    it's just that the effects have got a bit more convincing I think

    I had it on while i was making some food before and I think it's safe to say they are the worst bunch of actors/actresses I've seen in a while

    Seriously though , hasn;t it always been a tradition for kids to be frightened of Dr Who ?- I mean that is the whole point isn't it ? - I think the only difference between now and then , is that we are a lot more "self policing " about these things now
    I can see where you are coming from though , My little boy is 4 in August , and I am still not sure he is quite ready for Dr Who yet - but then a monster appeared in another programme / trailer recently and my son was in the room , I was a bit worried and said to my son "He is a bit scary , isn't he ? ", and my son looked at me as if I was stupid and said " No he isn't " (in a condescending tone )

    My 2 year old,6 year old,myself and the missus all watch it together and as far as i can tell...
    It's still family viewing.Not too scary and my kids stay glued to the screen when it's on.
    Pretty well done nowadays i think.Ok,so you get the odd episode that is just crap,but all in all,it's about the best thing on the BBC imo.
    Jekyl looks quite good though.1st episode was decent.Liked Jimmy Nesbit in Murphys' Law.
