How will it pan out with viewers, well that remains to be seen.
It quickly tanked under Chibnall - ultimately logging its lowest ever viewer figures.
Since RTD is back in charge, I'm hoping it will improve, it cant really get much worse.

(We wont see the 14th season until November 2023, so a long way off yet).
Depends how good an actor he is I guess and how good the stories are. Never seen him his acting so will give the guy a chance. If anything bit too young for me but that might be me getting older... Skin colour , expecially for aliens is irrelevant.

Matt Smith was younger when he got the job.

Re: Doctor Who

I don't think viewers will care that much, they probably won't notice anyway since they are not playing a trans character. Same with when people were 'worried' the BBC might cast Olly Alexander as the Doctor because he was gay.

Mostly this.
Much of the last three series have been poor, the first was largely in your face PC, applied with a sledge hammer, the next series changing the entire history/backstory of the doctor for no reason, and the last series was just incomprehensible garbage. The "Doctor" has become a babbling narrator who spends far too much time wielding a "sonic".

See above.
If the stories are great, and the doctor [and companions] are played well, then yes, viewers will happy (inc me). If it carries on being poor, they will care, and blame the choices - much like many did with Capaldi, I didnt mind him, my wife didnt like him as the doctor. JFYI, both she (and my mum) think Jodi has been a very poor doctor, and both gave up even trying to understand "the flux".

Most won't notice or care because they're watching something else now
