Re: Doctor Who

Really enjoyed it, but had to watch it twice thanks to annoying relatives who talked loudly over the whole thing. Retreated to my room with iPad and iPlayer and had my second screening immediately after the first.

The falling snowman scene and the dialogue between the Doctor and the polis was excellent - also, apparently, it was filmed as a pickup almost a year after principal photography was complete because Disney requested an earlier and clearer introductory scene for the Doctor. Interesting for those of us who are wondering what level of creative input Disney’s money comes with.

Re: Doctor Who

I don't think they have a full on final say on the scripts or what goes in to it. However I think they can suggest changes if they think it will help the story or editing etc. Most shows will have early cuts or edits that get improved and changed before the final broadcast edit.

Yeah they shot that about 4-6 months ago as initially people thought it was for next years Christmas episode.

The Disney budget injection really shows and the CGI and practical effects are a massive leap over previous years.

Re: Doctor Who

Interesting start, baby eating monsters, quite a dark theme really.
Certainly a ok start (aside from the musical bit, why does everyone have to spoil episodes like this).
So far they seem a good team up, but I like Ruby a lot more than I like the [new] Doctor, maybe he'll grow on me.

Theories ?
The old woman is an alien (time lord ? master ?).
She may also be (or know) the woman who dropped Ruby off 19 years ago ?

I think maybe the Rani. However I feel she is definitely the one who waits who was referred in the specials.

Re: Doctor Who

Well Millie Gibson didnt last long, just over one season it appears (S14).
She will exit early in Season 15, to be replaced by Varada Sethu (from Andor).

The only real suprise was they have not (yet) said she will be gay as well.

Re: Doctor Who

Nothing to do with that. She is a good actress from the things I've seen here in. If Ruby has her story finished then a new actress will replace her character. Disney don't have a say in production. That's down to RTD and Bad Wolf.

you'd have to be very naive to believe that.

If they're stumping up the cash, they will absolutely have a say in it.

Re: Doctor Who

RTD himself said they can provide notes or suggestions bur he doesn't have to use them. For example on the Christmas episode they suggested spending more of the budget and also introducing the doctor earlier. Which he did, shooting the snow man scene in August last year and the other early scenes.
