An excellent critique of a show that is laden with problems.. The first episode of Doctor Who was the worst episode of any show I've ever seen. It was so shockingly bad, so terrible, it broke every idea I had about what terrible IS. I had to rethink criticism itself in order to define how awful that pilot is.

.... sweet jesus...
The writing is simplistic and bland at one moment, overwritten and verbose at others, and lacks any semblance of forethought with respect to the idea of time travel (the seeming premise of the entire show).. Note that I say this having watched the majority of it (I dated a girl who really liked it, she was and still is an idiot).
This show is at best a randomly organized set of events conceived in the throes of self-congratulatory delirium. Bad Wolf? There's barely a scrap of continuity. And don't get me started on the science. As sci fi goes, it makes no effort whatsoever to even resemble making sense. The writers didn't even bother to google "time" before shitting this show out.
