Doctor Who (may contain spoilers)
Decent set up for the rest of the series, but is it just me becoming increasingly irritated by Moffat’s writing? Great ideas? but seems incapable of hanging a narrative together properly.
Lucas stole the show in tonight’s episode though. Clearly the part doesn’t really stretch him, but his performance is spot on.
SPOILER ALERT. Disappointed it wasn’t Simm in the priest’s robes on the executioners planet. Sounds like they asked Lucas to do a voice that could have been his?Posted 9 months agomikewsmithSubscriber
Enjoyed that one, just revisiting S1, at this point until I watch more Tucker/Eccleston are on top for me, would love to have seen Tucker doing the darker side so hopefully that comes back in this one. He has an arc to follow. Good fun watching the bad wolf story fall outPosted 9 months ago
Well, what did everyone think of that then?
So much packed in recently I think I need to watch the last couple again.
Odd series, tbh, fun though.
Loved the first half, seemed to go off a little before picking up again.
So many good characters and possible storylines, almost seemed like they were up against time and desperate to shoehorn everything in.
Enjoyed it very much overall, tinged with the realisation that we’re dumping the best Dr for years just as he’s getting the hang of it.
Looking forward to Christmas.Posted 7 months ago
Female agenda was all over it. Plenty of hints. We’re getting a female Who I’m sure. I doubt the show will last another season though with a female Doctor and Chibnall running it, but just my opinion.
First Doc in xmas episode was announced a while back. David Bradley did a great job in the docudrama “An Adventure in Space and Time”, although arguably he was great at portraying William Hartnell the actor. How he’ll work as The Doctor is to be seen. It won’t be anything like Hartnell’s Doctor though, but if you can see past that it should be enjoyable. Not sure on dragging out the regeneration over such a long time. Was bad enough with Tennant’s long goodbye before he regenerated.Posted 7 months agoCougarSubscriber
New doctor announced on Sunday after the tennis…
We’re getting a female Who I’m sure.
Famous last words but I very much doubt it, simply because of Missy. If they hadn’t done that then I’d agree, but gender-swapping the Master and the Doctor on the bounce seems unlikely. The next Doctor, maybe.Posted 7 months ago

On the other hand having had female villain and male hero, it might make sense to swap both so still a gender mix.
But I was thinking that if the reveal was going to be held back for the episode for a change (would be a first), then they’d definitely be going for the shock reveal of a woman. Revealing it now then I think it’s less likely.
Though chances of holding it out until Christmas is just about absolutely zero. Only if they haven’t shot anything of the regeneration until the day before (or even do it live!) could they just about manage it.Posted 7 months ago
