Finally, after David Tennett’s long goodbye as one of the most iconic British television characters we finally get to see Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor. This is a milestone for the series, having losing one of the most popular Doctor’s ever. Russell T. Davies, the man responsible for the new Doctor Who is also leaving as the show runner, and been replaced by Steven Moffat. The BBC saw fit to give the series a mini-reboot and starts the fifth series with a fast-paced episode.
The Doctor has just regenerate and in the Tardis ends up flying across England. He lands in a small village where a seven-year-old Scottish girl Amelia Pond (
Caitlin Blackwood) is praying for someone to fit a strange crack in her wall. The Doctor, still trying to overcome his regeneration discovers that crack had been used by an alien prisoner to escape to Earth.
With his Tardis and Sonic Screwdriver acting up The Doctor leaves aiming to come back in five minutes, but overshoots badly: coming back twelve years later. Amelia is now a young woman and prefers to be called Amy (Karen Gillan). She had obsessed about the Doctor since that night.
