I hate to admit it, but I've seen the leaked premier. After reading the glowing review on Warren Ellis' blog, I couldn't resist.

Within the first 15 minutes, I knew what I was watching. (And, in fact, I recognized the Autons!) Other than the lack of a long coat, big hair, and scarf, this guy is him. (Though, I don't think I'll be shaving my head to continue my fashion tutelage.)

It's like things picked up right where they left off--cheesy plot, goofy incidental music, sonic screwdriver, and all. Most important of all: I'm so glad that it didn't get a revival by way of an American studio, although I do wish it'd gotten picked up by the SciFi Channel.

Just as soon as there's a DVD for sale, I'll be ordering it. I don't suppose they take foriegn donations? Or maybe I could just pay off some Briton to offset the taxes or license fees they paid to support the show's production? I don't even care if this was a promotional stunt.
