Viewers of Doctor Who are impressed with the new Doctor. He did give a good first impression, but we'll see if he really is the best Doctor ever. So far Matt Smith's Doctor seems to very similar to David Tenant's Doctor, and I'd like to see what makes this new Doctor different. Still, Smith does seem to have the strength and charisma to fill Tenant's shoes.
My favourite companion so far has been Catherine Tate's Donna, but Karen Gillan's Amy Pond made a good first impression too. I liked that we first saw her as a child; it adds an interesting dimension to her character. It was amusing that all of the townsfolk recognized the Doctor from Amy's childhood sketches.
I knew when the Doctor told little Amelia that he would be back in five minutes that he wouldn't return until she was an adult, and when Amy said that she had some "stuff" the next day, I knew that she was supposed to be getting married. I wonder if the Doctor will have her back in time for her wedding? My guess is that he won't.
