Anyone see the easter special?

I'm looking forward to the new special coming up in Novemberish.

So......

What do we all think?

Haven't really been watching. I wasn't sold on Matt Smith last season, and I missed the first episode, then never caught up. I've been hearing mixed things. Worth a watch?

Very good in general. The quality of the guest writers goes up and down a bit but the ones written by the showrunner Steven Moffatt are all top notch. I would suggest watching the previous series before starting this one though as some of the plot points do kind of rely on stuff from the fifth series.

I actually prefer Smith to Tennant now and I think I prefer the style of these series to the 10th doctor stuff but then thats just me.

Well I've got a lot of free time, and I assume this season's all on iPlayer, so I'll give it a watch.
I'm also not sure about Moffat. His episodes when RTD was show-runner were all great, but last season I feel he lost his way a little. Too much River Song.

Lesbian Human-Silurian relationships for the win. Or at least, one of them heavily hinted at. ,3

I agree, the wacky antics of the 11th doctor are entertaining after all the seriousness of the previous doctors. It just seems lighter, that is all.

EDIT: um, well, River is sort of the plot point for this season I think. A major plot theme actually. Appears in the first double episode. And then the mid-season finale. And judging by the content of the season finale, will be featured a lot more after it restarts. Though probably a much much much younger version of River will featured. At least this season we finally learn who the hell she actually is.

So I've watched through the season so far. Here are my thoughts in no particular order. Fairly strong, only the pirate episode was weak. Lots of interlinking plot points are good, and the Silence seem to be promising villains, so hopefully we'll have more of them (and hopefully SM won't ruin them like he did those Angels). Final twist I did not see coming, so points for that. The final episode was exciting but to rushed I think. Could have used being a two part episode. Neil Gaiman delivered to goods in a pretty decent stand alone episode. Rory is great. I still don't really like River Song though.

I basically agree with everything you said. I disagree about the Angels being ruined though-they are still awesome.
