Naturally, I'm in.
You American chaps are in luck, it just so happens that someone has been posting up ALL the episodes of series 2 on youtube recently, so if you really can't wait for them to come out over there you can watch the whole lot over the interwebs.
I'm in agreement that Tennant makes a better Doctor than Eccleston. He just seems like more of a classic Doctor, whereas his predecessor didn't do the campy/lighthearted bits very naturally at all, which is understandable considering the kind of gritty dramas he appeared in in the past.
That being said, series two has had it's highs and lows. The first six episodes were brilliant, but I felt some of the later ones missed the mark a bit. Fear Her was a nice idea, but a bit too bland for my tastes. That Love and Monsters one was just dire.
Still, the good episodes more than make up for that.
Favourite episodes from the first series were:
The Doctor Dances
The Parting of the Ways
