Okay... this review summed up exactly how I felt about the introduction of the new Doctor Who. Make no mistake, I will ALWAYS watch Doctor Who no matter who is the lead role, but I was a bit UNDERwhelmed by Peter's interpretation of the Whovian idol. I'm not sure if it's also the accent that's throwing me off as well. There are subtle but important cultural aspects that come with any accent that seems to be lacking from his British (Sylvester McCoy [7th Doctor] was Scottish as well though) predecessors. I know that Peter is a rabid Whovian himself, but his portrayal is a bit ... spiritless? He says the right things, reacts in the way you'd sort of expect The Doctor to act, but there is a sort of mechanical nature to the actor that he seems hard-pressed to overcome at this point. Now, I give ANY new doctor the benefit of the doubt and some time to really "get into the role"... but unlike his predecessors, Peter is starting at a lower ebb than usual with me. I have faith in Peter though, because I believe in The Doctor. I know he'll find a way to make me love HIS Doctor Who.
