Doctor Who has been picked as one of Newsnight Review’s TV highlights of the year.
The show received blanket praise from the panel which featured Julie Myerson, John Harris, Germaine Greer, Kwame Kwei Armah and host Mark Lawson.
Harris proclaimed the show “credible” while Myerson said the relationship between The Doctor and Rose “feels real” and that the show was “brilliantly filmed”.
Praise for Billie was a common thread with Germaine calling her an “amazing actress” and Kwei Armah citing her acting as a “revelation”.
Kwei Armah noted that he “didn’t enjoy episode one” but that the he enjoyed the show more as the
series went on as the “story telling became very clear” and the show “became less about the effects”. He was equally gushing about Christopher Eccleston who was “just brillaint, period”.
