well, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but unfortunately for this critic it helps if you have a strong basis for your arguement!
I found a lot I didn't like about RTD's era, but I would never dispute the huge popularity it gained. Many of the current viewers brought into the program during this time are sure to be in the 15 year old age bracket, so why on earth WOULDN'T a new producer seek to retain that audience?
I have a Daughter too young to remember the regeneration to Tennant very well, but she's had no problem in accepting Smith in the role; so much so that the last episode she watched she stated she prefered him (given the huge fights she had been having with her younger brother who LOVED Smith from the outset this is no small achievement!).
Being 35 I find it hard not to draw comparisons to how I felt about my first regeneration: Tom Baker to Peter Davison. given the levels of popularity both Baker and Tennant enjoyed in their time, I think Smith's first episodes are very strong when held up against Davisons.
And where's the criticism of the new Daleks?
If this critic doesn't like Smith or Moffatt He's in for a bit of a shock when he sees THEM!
