Re: Doctor Who

Yes, this has been a fantastic start to the series and also a great return for the Master.

Re: Doctor Who

First episodes I have watched in a while, missed all of the last season, that was pretty good though. I hope they keep the character of 'O' around with the same actor because he really nailed that specific character IMO, I would enjoy seeing more of him. Jodie Whitaker is good I think, I never really had an issue with her as the Doctor but the episodes of the first season were just bland. Hopefully they've fixed that.

I assume Lenny Henry will make a reappearance since the episode didn't give his character a conclusion, he is still around?

Re: Doctor Who

I don't think he will be back, the Master on the othergand will be back for the finale, as it will clearly focus on Gallifrey and the mystery of the timeless child.

Doctor Who villains donít get to just walk away unless theyíre going to reappear. Iím confident Lenny will be back.

Re: Doctor Who

I think they weren't concerned about him as he technically wasn't the bad guy, but getting used by the Master. So was of no real concern.

Re: Doctor Who

Got got round to watching both episodes this evening.
As episodes go, they were ok I suppose, despite JW, who just ruins it for me.

At least the Master was back, and evil.

Re: Doctor Who

I'd hardly call it a lecture. Just a sci-fi story using real and current events.

They way sci-fi has always done really.

I really enjoyed the episode.

Re: Doctor Who

It's all part of the woke culture that has infiltrated every department at the BBC. Drama was the last to go.

Re: Doctor Who

It's part of art in general, this isn't sudden. Art and politics have always mixed and especially in Science fiction.

It's just everyone is more sensitive to it now, especially if they disagree with the message. (Also IMO British television writing seems to sledgehammer the message home rather just in case the audience doesn't get it)

Anything that asks a mainstream audience to look up from their smartphones and concentrate is a tough ask these days. So maybe subtle doesn't work. . The BBC1 audience are used to the Antiques Roadshow at that time, or crap like 'Strictly Come Dancing on the Celebrity Xfactor Talented Dining Ice' , or somebody slagging someone off in EastEnders... They can follow that.

I'd bung it on BBC4 and sod the ratings (and also regenerate the Dr if course. She's good actress but just doesn't have the eccentricity or believability that she's an older version of the other Drs.)

Re: Doctor Who

Just in case you missed the last lecture, they rammed it in again this week.

Oh, and just to tick another PC box, the married couple were of course both male.

Its getting very tiresome now.

Got bored with it towards the end of David Tenants run, interest was piqued mildly when John Hurt was in it but that soon dissipated and not really watched it since, doesn't sound like I've missed much, I thought the show in desperate need of a hiatus years ago and now by the sounds of it needs to be put out of it's misery
