Post Doctor Who 2019

So, controversy abounds. The mysoginists and "Incels" are on the fecking warpath, and worst of all, Doctor Who has been moved to a fecking Sunday. Perhaps they'll pair it with Songs of Praise in the "ScFi Slot"...

I'm going to miss Capaldi. By far my favourite Doctor for decades, but hey, Time Lords march on. I've never sat down and watched Whittaker at work, she's never been in anything that I've felt in any way compelled to watch, but a chance she deserves, and a chance she shall get. At least until the end of the Xmas special.

My one abiding concern is the cast; specifically Bradley bloody Walsh. The guy's fine as a gameshow host, but I'm really not looking forward to what he's going to do to this series. Again though, the proof shall be in ye olde pudding. Slight concern also about the sheer number of hangers-on in the Tardis. I prefer a quality Doctor with one other decent actor to bounce off. Jenna Coleman was especially good in that respect, with some occasional Nardole for comic relief.

Let's see..

From what I've seen of her she's a decent actress, I don't think I'm sexist but I think it'll be hard not to think of her as a companion for a while, maybe once she starts waving her sonic about.

A cameo from Davros should tick that box

Pretty underwhelming first episode. Whittaker had some good moments, I'm warming to her. Definitely get the feeling that the overall tone is being forced back to the light side, compared to the Capaldi years. Less Malcolm Tucker, more Albert Arkwright. Doctor Who has never been at its best when leaning that way.

One thing that did irk me was the inclusion of Lee Mack in the upcoming cast preview. Never liked the c**t. He just gets my shifty fecker alarm bell ringing.

Only one episode though. Nary a TARDIS to be seen. I'm still going to be watching.

Not sure WTF the luvvyfest at the end was all about, previous seasons would've given you a preview of the upcoming stories not their showbiz buddies who were in them. Apart from that it was decent enough but Chibnall isn't supposed to be the best writer the show has had and he's now showrunner.

Meh to the first episode story wise, she reminds me of Tennant ..or as my dad put it 'it's Tennant with tits'. Can't really judge her fairly until shes done a season or two

1.To perform an amazing act without witness.
2.To have the worst of luck when playing in groups, although having the best intentions an act occurs which usually results in multiple deaths, maimings or destruction of property.

I was thinking the same thing, and I never thought Tennant was a great Doctor...
