    I absolutely agree with you. The last 3 seasons really developed the Doctor, especially since they followed him from start to finish, and Tennant's acting skills really made it apparent. Nothing against Matt Smith, he's a fine actor, but he just doesn't say Doctor to me, and the new episodes definitely lack a deeper side. I think we can all say we're never going to forget Davies and Tennant.

    My favoite David Tennant line was 'I'd call you a genius, except I'm in the room.'

    Mine is the following exchange between Doctor and Rose

    Rose: Doctor, they've got guns.
    The Doctor: And I haven't. Which makes me the better person, don't you think? They can shoot me dead, but the moral high ground is mine!

    Agreed to some degree. Unfortunately, Davies made the Doctor angsty, something we really don't need. While I think Davies increased the depth of the character, I think many of his choices were simply wrong for what Doctor Who is. While I absolutely adore Steven Moffat as a writer, I just don't think he has it in him to run the whole show. He needs someone to hold his leash. Most of the really great stories done in the past few series have been Moffat's, but when he was actually in charge of the show and revisiting those plotlines, he really messed them up IMO.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I like V and Star Trek: TNG, out of those listed. TNG is my favorite of the two.

    However, like others I liked some other SciFi shows. I like Firefly and Eureka. I watched Fringe once, and it was pretty good, but I have a hard time watching things now regularly. I liked seaQuest though. In fact, it would probably be my favorite scifi series.

    Futurama and Fringe. I think the rest are too cheesy.

    If not mentioned, another one from the '60's would be The Invadors with Roy Thinnes. Ran for a couple of seasons, and like so much back then, was cutting edge because it was the only edge ! Not up there with The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, but I never missed an episode ! The idea was present day America (then) where the enemy aliens are infiltrated amongst us, and only the lead character knows ! Remember the defective finger

    I don't know WHAT I would do if my middle finger was defective...

    Such a useful finger…

    It would be far more amusing to me if that was the defective finger in this series I've never heard of until now.
