Doctor Who saves the world, again. Yawn.

The Time Lord risks death by overkill. The best TV series know to ration the drama.

Tomorrow the 11th Doctor Who, Matt Smith, will save the Earth. Forgive me for not prefacing my words with “Plot Spoiler Alert”. There is even a brief sequence in Smith’s debut in which he explains to the invading nasty of the hour that saving the Earth is his job. He is being modest, for since Doctor Who was revived in 2005, he has just as often saved the universe and, sometimes, time itself to boot. The days when he would merely help to separate warring stone- age tribes or exterminate the Daleks on their home planet are long gone; 46 years-long gone to be pedantic.

Mr E - I think this article makes a very valid point.
