Looks like they are planning a new animated series with the 10th Doctor set in Roswell of all places. More info can be found at the blog for the show which I put a link for below.

The still shots look great- but as far as animation goes...oooh dreadful. O.K. if it were 80's standard- but to be a little harsh it reminded me of the money for nothing video by Dire Straights. I have been an artist/illustrator/toy designer for over 16 years and to be honest- I prefer traditional animation over 3d. So I'm sort of cynical to begin with- I just saw a clip and will watch it for the story, not the visuals. I think the worst bit of the animation is when the Georgia Moffet character is screaming it is so stiff and well...bad...I prefered the flash style animation of The Invasion...but still prefer the traditional 2d method...The problem with a lot of animation and design today is that so much focus is made in creating the look of the character...but not much in making the character move with believability. Stiff movement, odd mouth animation makes me feel like I am watching a SIMS game, not a mini toon.

Terrible facial animation. I saw better stuff from kids 6 years ago using Poser 3. Really distracts me from the story. They should have stuck with 2D, like greek9 said. In this day and age, if you go full-blown CGI, you gotta be very good. Still, we aren't the target audience.
My 16 year old daughter isn't interested. She wasn't interested in Infinite Quest, either. My son won't be born for another 5 weeks so I won't get a relevant opinion from him for a few years.

I really enjoyed this one...I liked it better than the Infinite Quest, which I also enjoyed. Neither one had "perfect" animation, but both were fun to watch!

David Warner voices the villain. He's awesome. I hope he shows in Moffat-era Who.
