Big fan of the show but I wish they would stop using the sonic screwdriver as a fix everything gadget. Its turned into such a gimmick it has lost all its meaning. I've been watching the older shows, they hardly ever used it. The Doctor used wits and cleverness to get out of scrapes. Now he just pushes a button and points. Weeeeeeeeeeeet problem solved.

Deyv...it was a joke. The Beeb used to be notoriously cheap regarding their special effects, sets, costumes, etc. So yes, wire frame computer images with stills superimposed over the top is kind of mind blowing when you compare it to some of the costumes from classic Doctor Who (lots of men in costumes that look like they were made by 12 year olds).
