From Springfield Punx:
It's a Whosday!
When Doctor Who first came back (referred to as "Nu Who") with Christopher Eccleston, I caught the "Aliens of London" episode... While the "false-flag alien crash in London designed to spread fear and consolidate power for the government-disguised Slitheen usurpers" storyline was really interesting, the execution was rather goofy. So much so that it kinda turned me off of Doctor Who until a friend got me to try out the newer Matt Smith Doctor, and I was hooked from then on. I'm able now to go back and appreciate the Eccleston stuff in context, even the Slitheen episodes.
