I guess I'm the one person who's going to agree with you. I've been increasingly disappointed with the lack of chemistry between Smith and Gillan, with the wildly easy solutions the Doctor finds to every problem (there's a deadly weather machine? Well... turn it OFF! Done! Amy's got an angel in her eye? Well... CLOSE YOUR EYES!) The Angels have now become stupid (if you close your eyes and walk, they'll think you have your eyes open? REALLY? Remember when you couldn't, like, blink, because they'd be on you as soon as your eyes shut?
Though I did like a lot of what RTD did, and am not a basher, I was looking forward to SM's showrunner era. I'm hoping it gets better. I am most saddened by what they did to River Song in her second ep, when she became nothing more than a hero-worshipper there for the Doctor to yell at... and I'm hoping they turn her around as well.
I'll keep watching, but with less excitement, I'm afraid.
