W on Who -- Warren Ellis has a good review up of the new incarnation of Doctor Who. Regrettably it seems no U.S. channel is jumping on the opportunity to carry the series, which is damned stupid given how many people here fondly remember the series from the Tom Baker and Peter Davison days.

It's nice to see Warren holds at least some of those Peter Davison stories in high
regard; unfortunately, US distribution of the series went to hell around the time he left the series, so other than the Paul McGann TV movie (which I enjoyed, but mostly as a handful of water in an otherwise arid desert) I haven't really seen any Who since then. The Peter Davison era is my personal favourite, perhaps because he was the first Doctor whose transformation I watched. It's a shame the series has been missing from American TV all these years, as I'm pretty sure its (as Warren notes) family nature would have made it a big hit with my kids in their formative years.
