"Also, it features a doorman whose superpower is summoning monkeys. Beat that."

That sold it for me  ;D

Some pictures of various in-jokes within the show - some I don't get, but others are kinda mint.

Well, it's official.
It was hardly the great shock that the BBC News were making it out to be

Should we start taking bets on who the next Doctor will be?

I ahve seen some odd choices already including Chiwetel Ejiofor, who would be awesome.

Ooo! Yes, he would be excellent I can see him as a deeply serious Doctor

I might watch this, just because of who's in it...

I would advise against watching any 'reality' show, game show, etc., regardless of who is in it, as exposure to such divvel will significantly reduce your intelligenceQuotent.
Of coure, this is only my oinion... but ignore it at your peril.

I want to watch the Ruby in the Smoke, if only to see if the latest doctor is actually any good.  He probably will be; Steven Moffat is hardly an idiot when it comes to these things, but still...

Well I tried, I really did. I managed to sit through the first 30 minutes of ITV's new supernatural drama 'Demons' before having to admit it was just a big pile of toss. The entire thing could, and should, hvae been condensed down into three minutes of half decent monster and make-up effects - for an ITV supernatural drama - and shiny steampunk toys. I'm fairly sure the gun shown is one I have seen on a steampunk artist's site. Other than that, the TV equivilant of Van Helsing: I wanted it to be good, and could argue that some small sections were worth another watch, but it was ultimatly just a let down.

I heard it described as Hollyoaks meets Buffy. Which isn't the most promising of predictions...

Hollyoaks meets Buffy, but without the totty, of either gender (unless you count DCI Gene Hunt as totty like some women do)

Now, if it had been DCI Gene Hunt vs Monsters, it would rock.

On the other hand HBO series "True Blood" with Anna Paquin amongst others has just finished series 1 in the US and so can be, erm, found on the internets.

Watch it and think "if only all tv shows were made by HBO"

Think Buffy meets Rome...in Louisiana
