It only took three episodes for Chris Chibnall to completely kill DOCTOR WHO -- a franchise that should have been unkillable. But his poor characterizations, and lousy storytelling finally succeeded. Please not I have bno objection to a female Doctor. It's boring, crap stories that I hate, and this season has nothing else. I bought the season in advance with high hopes -- but with every new episode I could feel myself dying inside. This is not DOCTOR WHO -- and will not spend any more money on this abomination until Chibnall is gone.
After decades of watching Doctor Who I can finally stop. Too many companions, stories are too political, and boring writing. Maybe someday it will improve and I will be back.
Unfortunately a let down from the heights of all previous doctors. The writing is sixth grade level and the failure of poor Jodie to garnish enthusiasm of the audience is painful to watch. Sink it and re-float it with another vessel to project an interesting tapestry like previous seasons.
The all new show has altered the focus away from mechanical aptitude and towards past/current American social issues, this suggests the Show is going the way of Class. The scripts have Dr Who using her ‘sonic’ as a magic wand while fixing various American social Issues and muttering about. The scripts for the old male character have him plodding through scripts with the tech knowledge of a turnip. Please hire a writer with at least a basic Knowledge of college level engineering, Recent shows to date were written primarily for entertaining young juveniles With babysitter nonsense. —
After years of people telling me I needed to try out Doctor Who, I finally decided to give it a go. Why? Because of this new series. I was intrigued to see if a show 50+ years running could successfully genderbend its main character while still keeping true to the heart of the character and the show itself. The Doctor has become an icon for geeks everywhere, and as a huge Star Wars, Tolkien, and general sci-fi/fantasy nerd, I have to appreciate that. Series 11 seemed like a great jumping-on join for a noob to get her start in the Whoniverse. I was absolutely right. I fell in love with Jodie Whittaker’s version of the Doctor almost immediately - her quirky mannerisms (and especially facial expressions) remind me somewhat of Martin Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit films. She instantly captured everything I had always thought the Doctor was supposed to represent. The wisdom, compassion, strength, and age, all wrapped up in a bundle of energy and excitement over the wonders of the universe. I loved it all and couldn’t figure out why so many fanboys were hating. After finishing this series, I went back to series 1, with the introduction of the Ninth Doctor. I’ve been working my way through ever since. And now I’m beginning to understand why many were underwhelmed with series 11. Don’t get me wrong, I still absolutely love Thirteen. I’m still fond of Yaz, Ryan, and Graham. And there are many moments in this series that are downright awesome. But in comparison to past series, the writing is honestly pretty... ehhhh. Plots are fairly simple and predictable, and none of the characters really develop a ton. Besides, I think Jodie could achieve SO much more with the character if the writers and directors would give her half the chance. Let the Doctor finally get tired of having to stand by while the innocent are torn down, let her memories of past battles and loves and losses shine through for a few moments, let her new companions hear stories of those who came before. Let her somehow encounter a shadow from her past, whether it be an old companion, enemy, or location, and the true ancientness of the Doctor be glimpsed again. I don’t want to doubt that the writers will clue in for series 12. I really do believe that awesome things are coming. I just hope that the writers realize how and why this series isn’t all Doctor Who could be - not because of the actors, or the characters, and especially not because of the gender change. But because it’s capable of far more than it’s currently being given. Believe in your characters and fans, BBC. Don’t water it down for us — give us the epicness this show and the first female Doctor deserve.
The writing was not up to the show’s usual standards for creativity and wonder. I think the new Doctor is great, though. It’s too bad they didn’t give her better material to work with in her first season.
How do I get the New Years episode? Can’t say how good it is until I see the last episode.
Man, the production values, writing, acting, plotting. It’s a quality reinvention of a great show. Some of the best sci-fi I’ve seen on TV in a long while. Absurdly good character work, delightful new ideas and worlds, and a great new Doctor to top it all off. I can’t wait to see where they take this next!
Just pretend the Doctor opted to not regenerate at the end of the Capaldi era. It’s better that way.
Boring and PC, unoriginal as all heck. Solid pass.
I'm content with the writing, acting and overall production. I do feel the price tag was rather steep for what's actually 10 episodes. I also appreciate all the extra content, but I'd rather it not be mixed amongst the core content as I bought this mainly to watch the actual episodes. Anyway, again, overall, I am happy.
The season so far has been one of the best in years. Every episode Jodie seems to be finding he Doctor legs and is really breathing great new life into the series. The stories have been great as has the supporting cast.
is it included with season 11 purchase?
Jodie’s great as the Doctor. The group dynamic was refreshing - it left no room for a large bulk of screen time to be spent on one character. Graham’s the best companion out of the three. I won’t ramble on about the plot. I’m not as critical as others. Chibnall handled his first series pretty well and I’m looking forward to the next! Jodie better not bow out after S12! 13 should leave after lucky 13 lol Hopefully she stays for at least 3 seasons like the rest have done. Ps, I want Alan Cumming to return as King James!!
A fun, exciting, fresh and new take on Doctor Who. Jodie is brilliant as the doctor, and can’t wait for the New Years special.
No just no...terrible just terrible!
Hopelessly childish and poorly written. A sad time for Who fans.
While Judie Wittaker is great as The Doctor, writing of the episods is far, far worse than previous seasons... to bad! Update: I watched a few more episodes hoping it will get better, it did not. Terrible, terrible writing. It can only please the most undemanding and simplistic viewer. Farwell Doctor!
SORRY but im a fan from way back like tom baker way back an sorry but have to say what the hell,this has just left me sadened and looking for all the good ol story line and from what ive watched so far i'm sadened to see the doctor gone so far down hill, so sorry a thumbs down from me and what have they turned the tardis into in the control room and to make him a her after all these years yer no not gonna watch anymore if its going to look this cheap and nasty
There were rumours. I wasn't sure if I should buy it, but Dr Who is an amazing show. There's no way they could srew it up. Wish I'd listened to the rumours.
Worst season of new Who yet. The storylines were in cohesive and dull. Stories which were used to fit some political agenda whether it be one which hates on Donald Trump, another demonising the white race Or one that keeps reminding us that females can be strong leads too. I had no quarrels with The Doctor becoming female after I accepted it, I thought it could’ve been a good change of pace which could’ve made for some interesting stories, now I long for the days of David Tennant and Matt Smith because the execution of it was awful and it made all the men apart from the companions look like toxic masculine sexists. Both Me and my dad share the same opinion we both love this show which was a part of both our childhoods. As my dad has been watching since he was four years old in 1966 and he now refuses to Give the show another chance after the latest series and it’s overall agendas. Doctor Who has always been political but never this blantently. Maybe they should stick to science fiction and keep away from political correctness and engineering.The first female doctor may also signal the end of the show for me. So much potential wasted, how disappointing. Let’s hope this will all be fixed in future seasons.😒
The new series is very bleh... where is the doctor? I don’t blame the actors just a very weak and preachy script. None of the characters are interesting or engaging, they have no charisma. It feels like Dr Who but without the dr in it, she doesn’t impact the show in the same way. Finding it tough to keep watching...
Whether you like it or not, She IS the Doctor!
the main program so far is great but then again i knew it would be not being one of the nay sayers because the doctors gender has changed. the extras shower are badly edited piece which leads you to beleieve they were either all one thing ore badly taken from somewhere else. Congrats BBC on a GREAT renewed show
Gave it a chance but it’s terrible.
I have waited the new season for a long time, but to be honest, I’m not impressed by it so far. Since Moffat left the show, the new writer likes to make lots of hints, to create a bigger event through the whole show. I like that? But it makes episodes on the beginning a bit boring. Also, the new doctor seems like trying to be the 10th doc, all the accent, facial expressions... I haven’t discovered any special points about the new doctor except she is a woman. Anyway, it’s good to have the show back.
Always been a doctor who fan and always will be. Jodie brings so much to the show! She simply IS the doctor
It’s hard to not see dr who not as a man but the new actress is the doctor in style and energy. For the hard liners, you know who you are give it ago you might be amazed
So excited can’t wait till comes out
I loved when the Master came back as Missy. She was brilliant. Unfortunately the Doctor didn’t come back as a brilliant female version of the Doctor. A new Doctor is always hard to get used to, and it takes a couple episodes to get the new actor and the writers in sync to bring out the best of the Doctor. So I gave it a few episodes, but I’m struggling. The plots are so predictable I either doze off half way through or I start playing games on my phone. And I agree with all the PC comments people have posted. The Doctor is supposed to bring out the best in people and heal relationships. Last season and this season we just get preached politically correct propaganda. I hope the show turns around. I’m think I’m done watching for this season.
Really enjoying this season so far. Good characters, compelling story lines.
I am probably both a typical and atypical Doctor Who fan: I've watched it since childhood, but I do not follow anything of the show outside of catching every episode (I don't watch behind-the-scenes extras or follow casting or showrunner changes, though I will admit to creating a sound file of the original 1963 theme song to use as a ringtone--that was simply essential). I am very invested in the character and the uniqueness of the show. Oh, and I'm "a girl," so I am also invested in seeing (and believe it is possible to see) a successful female Doctor. With all of that in mind, I'm very reluctant to say a bad word about this new season. And maybe it is wrong to do so, since the show needs and deserves our support. But support includes loving criticism--though I don't harbor any delusions that these criticisms will be heard. Still, gotta say this somewhere. The stars of this show, Whittaker included, are wonderful performers, and of course the production values of the show have not faltered. The directing seems technically fine (unnoticeable, which I assume means fine). What is breaking my heart this season is THE WRITING. Yes, these are dark times, and there is validity to the notion that when times get this dark, one must simplify messages of light in order to reach as many people as possible. But here, simplification is not the answer. Let the after-school specials be after-school specials. Don't make after-school specials of Doctor Who, a show that is loved, and endures, because of the intelligence and complexity with which it delivers both its drama and its comedy. The viewers who complain that this show has declined because it has "become political" are, in my opinion, tragically mistaken: this show has ALWAYS been political. Watch it all again, and pay attention. Doctor Who has always artfully, cleverly, complexly, hilariously tackled issues of race, class, and gender, the wonders and the crimes of science, and most of all, power and violence. If you say that Doctor Who was not political before this season, I say to you that you must have been watching a different Doctor Who. Yet while these reviewers' critiques are woefully off the mark, their lament that the show is faltering is, sadly, correct. Not because it has "become political," but because it has confined itself to simple, narrow sentiments of good and bad, as if our humanity (since the Doctor is, ultimately, all of humanity and its potential combined into one brilliant, flawed, vulnerable, glorious, ever-changing life form) can be reduced to thinly sketched episodes of our history or heavy-handed allegories of our present. A history lesson on the Partition of India or an exposure of the environmental crimes of big business is important, sure, but if this is going to be the subject matter of a Doctor Who episode, don't foreground the messages a writer wants to get across at the expense of the drama (day characters here are all well acted, but they never say one unpredictable thing and rarely connect in a significant way with the contract characters), of the Whoniverse (for instance, we have to work overtime to consider how the aliens of the Punjab even matter to the episode, thematically or dramatically), or, most of all, of the DOCTOR, who rarely plays more of a role in each episode's events than any other character: she might have a little more technical knowledge, sure, but we more often are TOLD that she is special or smart or brave than we witness these aspects of her character--she is not an agent of insight, change, or even disaster, as the Doctor always has been. The Doctor--male or female--must lead the way, make the biggest mistakes, harm and save in equal measure, and then find a way to redeem him or herself in some way that is true to the circumstances--the place and time--of a particular episode, while carrying the marks of that adventure (the scars and the triumphs and the lessons) forward. The Doctor must teach the companions and learn from them. This doctor runs about, and knows things, sure, but she is not being given the grandiose agency or fallibility of her previous regenerations, a fact that I would accept if I had any sense that the writers intended to create such a dilemma, crafting the series in a way that gradually revealed why. A female Doctor might be extra vulnerable--unsure of herself in this form that she has to admit is indeed different than the others, or perhaps totally confident in her form, but struggling with the way everyone else responds to it--but vulnerability is--duh!--not passivity. I dare the writers of this season--or anyone, for that matter--to take the scripts we've seen thus far and strike the specifics of the Whoniverse from them: take out the TARDIS and make it a time-travel wormhole; take out the sonic and replace it with some other magic wand or tricorder; take out the Doctor herself and replace her with an intrepid leader of a fantastic human four--say, Grace, Ryan's "nan"--and see if anything major changes. I dare you to take the Doctor out of Doctor Who Series 11, and see if you experience any loss. The loss is ALREADY being experienced by those who have come to look to Doctor Who for beauty and wisdom and love, and I'd say that in today's climate--the one the writers are so obviously responding to--that is no small tragedy. But it's not too late. You've got the raw material here. A rich history (which you need not reference explicitly, but you must not erase!) and a lovely cast, including a potentially fantastic Doctor. Please bring the level of the writing back to what it should be. In our sad, divisive, backsliding times, we don't need to dumb things down or change what has uplifted us in the past: we need to allow it to do what it has always done, louder, more courageously, more transformatively--and I think nothing has more potential to reach, galvanize, and unite us than the complex fictional world and intensely human characters that used to make up Doctor Who.
Tl;DR The show is just as good as it always has been with a new doc and new gender. There are not political agendas so dont accuse it of such. That being said... this is to squash some stigma to the show. I was actually pretty worried about how this show would go with such a major change but it seems the problem is the community. First off, the show hasn't become about politics and if you take politics out of it then you're thinking too hard. The episode Rosa has no ulterior motives. It is a mere representation of a historical moment and if you could go back and see something so special, would you not? Would you sit and complain about it like you are on here? It's sad to see people try to find hate where there is none. Stop trying to justify your disapproval and say that you dislike it. You have a right to an opinion but please understand the difference between a logical opinion and pure hatred. Finally I would like to say that Jodie Whittaker is the embodiment of curiousity. She isn't trying to be like tennant. She is astoundingly unique and takes things on only to have to solve them after thinking harder. She captures what a brand new Doc should be and I am more than happy to continue to support Doctor Who even more. Sincerely, A fan since 2003
New actors, new show runner, new writers have turned Dr. Who into a boring show that is preachy and juvenile. This is not Dr Who, it is the Sarah Jane Adventures, with a wise old woman leading a bunch of youths. There are no scary monsters or big bads, just monsters of the week. The previous seasons showed the dark side of the Doctor; he often had to make hard choices, and the series stressed how alone he was as a hyper smart, immortal alien who was nearly the last of his kind. Also, he often had romantic tension with his companions. Not with this series - everyone is happy and chipper, and there is no romance. What would have been groundbreaking would be not only to have a female Doctor, but have her develop romantic tension with a male, or even female companion. Not here, that would be too adult for this juvenile season. So boring and tepid.
Please fire the writers and save Dr Who! The new Dr is great but the writing and anti-american themes are going to alienate some of us Yanks
The BBC finally screwed the pooch. This is the first version of the doctor that I am completely unable to accept as Doctor Who. I think the BBC was more concerned about making the doctor a female than producing a believable character. Unless she regenerates into another body at the end of this season or I believe this will be the final Doctor Who season.
I absolutely love the new Dr. She’s as quirky as the Doctor that first got me into the show. I’m excited.
