Comicvine Interview Features Much Pontificating...
CV: We have a few Doctor Who fans on the site and the new comic is out from IDW, what are your thoughts on the "new" episodes?JHF: The show is so great. I have this theory of sci-fi that in America once Blade Runner happened, that was it. All Sci-Fi is dark and dreary. The stuff that ISNT dark and dreary ends up being cheesey and overdone. I think in the UK, because of Judge Dredd and that sort of smokey sci-fi tradition, that effect wasnt felt as strongly. There was still fun sci-fi. Doctor Who is probably the best example of that. Its sci-fi dressed in schoolboys clothes. Its fun, exuberant, and just plain hopeful sci-fi. As we get more and more bogged down in post-modernism and meta-snark, seeing a goofy, emotional rollercoaster like Doctor Who is really a valuable asset.
And how fucking rad is David Tennant?
