Re: Doctor Who

Well Season 12 starts on New Years day, and then carries on every Sunday again, 10 episodes in total.

Sad to say its the first time since the revival that I'm just thinking "meh .. ".

In our house, we used to make sure we were free to watch it, when it was on.
This year (well next year to be correct) we will probably just watch a recording.

Re: Doctor Who

Am I right in thinking the New Years Day season opener is being offered instead of a Christmas Day special this year? Or are we still getting a Christmas episode?

Nope Christmas special are gone for the time being. Chris Chibnall thinks that they have ran out of decent story ideas for them now. So will likely be New Year ones for time being.

This season brings back a story arc and also 2 part stories.

It does look really interesting from the trailer.

The Dr. being sexy just isn't right; he/she needs to regenerate into a grumpy old bloke asap.

Re: Doctor Who

I’m more surprised it got a special every year since the revival to be fair. Very few shows get the same slot every Christmas over that length of time.

Re: Doctor Who

I’m a sexist Luddite.

I stopped watching during Cappaldi’s tenure. It was going down hill (IMO) under Matt Smith, Cappaldi killed it for me and, sorry for being me, but the Doctor is not a woman. I know the debate is over but it would be like in the Star Trek reboot making Uhura a man.

Anyway, gender politics aside, not watched it since Capaldi season 1.

You are correct.
They are a thing of the past now, I guess its no longer popular enough.
Just like it also gets only 10 episodes per season now, not the old 13/12.

Capaldi really got into the role and was fantastic in his final season.

Also the Doctor is technically not a woman, he just looks like one. You should give Her a chance.

The 'forced' discussion in S10 confirmed the doctor is female.

I did, Season 11 was poor, and so was she.
The previews for season 12 are not doing a lot for me either.

Re: Doctor Who

I like Jodie, however some of the writing was not great. First impressions from the trailer make me think she'll be better this time as will be more comfortable in the roll. Most other doctors were also better in the second or third seasons.
