Re: Doctor Who

Why in a show about an alien that travels in a police box where we've had alien spiders and all sorts is a dog alien with a spaceship so hard to believe?

I thought it was fantastic and of course so hard to review after 1 episode. Would be like calling Harry Potter rubbish after only reading the 1st chapter.

They had a lot to set up and over the next 5 weeks we will get everything resolved.

Re: Doctor Who

Knowing this was going to be a long running story line I purposely recorded this first episode and we will watch the first two episodes back to back and hopefully things will be easier to follow.

And the weeping angels are still the best monster to emerge in the new era.

Ö which, although presented in the titles as episodes 1 to 14, is actually four discrete adventures with courtroom scenes acting as links and narration. . In BBC parlance, each adventure has a separate production code and was treated as a separate story for production purposes, with different script writers and directors.

Donít worry, I havenít forgotten it, I was there. . But it really isnít the same as what theyíre doing now, which is just one single adventure from beginning to end.

Re: Doctor Who

Well, I'm glad someone else is taking over.
Tonight was just more utterly confusing nonsense, I have no clue WTF is going on.
After warching tonights, my wife looked at me and asked if I understood any of it ... I didnt, neither did she.

Re: Doctor Who

I guess being the 3rd episode in a 6 part story arc they are going for the long play and waiting till the last episode or two to resolve a lot of the plot points.

However much of this did make sense but being in the time storm made some bit hard to follow. It's starting to sound like the weeping Angels may have a bigger part to play. Although from the trailers we've still not seen the Ood yet and next week is mostly Angel focused along with the girl we saw in the first episode.

Re: Doctor Who

It never got any better.

A vastly over complicated, confusing mess.

and Daleks + Cybermen falling for such an obvious trick, it would never happen.

Thank god Chibnall and Whittaker are leaving.
His ridiculous stories, and her awful doctor, have ruined a once excellent show.

Re: Doctor Who

Well to be fair to the Daleks and Cybermen there were desperate to escape the Flux so would have done anything to ensure their safety.

I thought it did a good job of telling a story and covering all the strands they revealed in the first couple of episodes. Lots of timey whimey typical Doctor stuff really.

Re: Doctor Who

The viewing figures tell it all really.
They are the worst for any of the "new" seasons.
The worst season premier figure ever & the worst average for any season (Eps 1 - 4).

Episode 4 was over 20% down on that bad start.
Episodes 3 & 4 are the worst figures ever for any episode or special since the 2005 restart.
The preliminary figures for Episode 5 look even worse (and obviously none for episode 6 yet).

Its just bad (and sad).

I quite liked Flux. Ch1 and 2 were reasonable, Ch3 was awful, Ch4 & 5 were pretty good and Ch6 was good (but slight dip from 4/5).

Unfortunately they probably messed up any Prof Jericho spin-off, though they could do some timey-wimey technobabble as there was a glow that doesn't have to be the Flux if they don't want it to be. Vinder and the other 2 in a ship was like a spin-off setup and future possible companions or other reappearances.

The dialogue Jodie has had, mostly in previous series, has been the biggest problem. It was decidedly iffy, and there was little anyone in her position could have done with it. The dialogue wasn't as ropey in Flux. My gut suspects Jodie would've done better under any of the previous showrunners. Chibnall doesn't have the Children's TV background of RTD and it didn't feel to me he could write story and dialogue that suits a family audience, even Moffat had more experience with younger audience (Press Gang) and variety in CV (he did Coupling).

Re: Doctor Who

I thought it was shocking. A lot of pointless sub plots, story was a mess too. He tried to be too smart for his own good and he totally failed.

I just hope RTD improves the show to what it once was.
