The Unversed Doctor
   Tho' I like the pairing of Matt Smith & Karen Gillan, what's really lacking in this season/series is the poetry of the DT years -- the rather unnerving and often beautiful bits, like the vacuous crew-woman in the ep that introduced River Song (can't think of its name right now) who's devoured & there's only a feedback echo of her left -- deeply poignant moments that made the frenzy valuable -- things like DT's turn as John Smith & the dignity of the boys fighting the Family of Blood . . . There's a lot of busy-ness, normal manic-ness with Eleven, but the stories & the situations so far haven't had that touch of grace & power that instantly drew in viewers who weren't susceptible to previous Doctors.
