Re: Doctor Who

Hmm, ok.

So as specials go, this years wasnt bad, better than many.

(Seems like we get NY specials now, rather than christmas).

The 'special' announcement at the end was strange.

So John Bishop is going to star in the next series .... and ... ?

Interesting I guess, but whats the big deal with that ?

Does it mean he will be the 14th doctor ? Now that would be worth a 'special' announcement.

Re: Doctor Who

Maybe he will be Captain Jack's love interest?

I donít watch it anymore, I gave up midway through Capaldi. Although I did catch 10mins of it to see Captain Jack attacked by a face hugger Dalek, and I thought the design of the new Daleks wasnít bad. But I kept surfing as Iím afraid it just doesnít hold my attention anymore .

Re: Doctor Who

TBH, I think the fact it had less Jodie and more of the others improved it.

Its a real shame Bradley Walsh is leaving, we are left with a poor excuse of a doctor, and a weak companion.

I'll no doubt watch Season 13, just to see how it goes, but unlike years ago, I no longer look forward to the start of a new season, nor do I miss it.

Re: Doctor Who

I thought it was OK, nothing special though. I thought the prison section would of played more of a part of the story but it was just a means for her to be away from everyone.

Not sure if anyone else agrees but the directing did seem a bit crap?

Re: Doctor Who

It's fairly standard for a Doctor to go after 3 seasons. It's sometimes called 'Troughton's Law' as that's the advice he is reputed to have given Peter Davison, who had taken the role intending to go three years but when it came time to decide whether to commit to a regeneration story at the end of the upcoming season 21 he was losing his resolve to quit while he was riding high.

Re: Doctor Who

I'd rather Chris Chibnall quit. She may not be the best Doctor, but he's the one ruining the show.

Re: Doctor Who

Yeah, it's not her from what I can see.

I think the main reason it's struggling is that it's been going on too long now. It should take a longer break. The show seems plodding and monotonous as if they just need to crank out episodes by a deadline to a formula, a problem that hits most long-running shows. There doesn't seem any underlying passion and creativity for what they could do with the show.

Re: Doctor Who

I think cimt is partly right.
IMO, Chibnall has done a lot to ruin it, including the last Doctor appointment, which was done purely on a PC basis, not picking the best person for the job.

I laughed at the last report I read which stated "Doctor who fans will be devestated to hear Jodie is leaving".

I can assure that reporter I will not, nor will any of my family, who think shes rubbish as well (all of them are female btw).

Re: Doctor Who

This may come as a surprise coming from a white, working class , male.

But making the Master, and then the Doctor female, killed it. It was in decline anyway, but that really killed it. It was unnecessary and attacked the very essence of who the doctor was.

I am looking forward to the new Bond film with the same trepidation, they’re so intent on emasculating Bond they’re killing the reason he exists.

Re: Doctor Who

fret not, I have every confidence that when he is recast to make that he will be black (maybe asian or hispanic) and gay. If they want to go all out "it" will be non-binary.
