Several of us have, as CJ put it, managed to get our grubby little hands on the episodes of the new season as it aired. All episodes have been ran and discussed and if you'd like to know about each, you can check out the New Episode Discussion - SPOILERS!
thread. For those that are watching as they play on SciFi and want to discuss them this is for you. This will keep you from reading about shows you haven't seen, and keep the other thread from rehashing shows already discussed.
Smith and Jones is the first show of the new season and introduces the 2nd companion to travel with the doctor since the series returned. (Technically the third IF you count Donna's one adventure with the Doctor) How does she stack up to what everyone who followed season 1 & 2 had come to expect from a companion of the Doctor? Martha seems a little more up to speed than Rose was when she first met the Doctor. Her reaction to being placed on the moon and confronted with alien life is proof of that as it comes off as a reaction of "okay...and?". Where does she stack up for you?
