Sir: I could not disagree more with Serena Mackesy's criticisms of Doctor Who (TV review, 28 May). As someone who saw every episode on the day of its original screening, even delaying departure on honeymoon so as not to miss one, I thoroughly enjoyed the latest incarnation.

Does everything that claims "Britishness" have to be quaint, quirky and amateur? Is that now to be the excuse for a lack of professionalism that has dogged this country? It was a very worthy successor and it was a pleasure to see it given the production values and funding that it has always deserved. I enjoyed every minute - more please!
