The last series (and some of the Capaldi stuff) just looked 'done on the cheap'.

Hasn't been the same since Matt Smith.

Well after a glimmer of hope a month or so back, that series was a fucking mess. I feel for Jodie Whittaker - she's had pretty much fuck all to work with which must be very difficult.

The finale on Sunday didn't work at all IMO - the writing just hasn't been consistent, the characters are really wooden, the pacing was naff and I actually got bored despite it being a supposedly huge revelation.

Ah well.

Watched the very first episode of this series,was underwhelmed by it,haven't bothered with the rest,my dr who mad nephew has even been switching it off so it must have been poor for him to do that,perhaps it's come to the end of its time again?

It's just not well written since Chris Chibnall took over as showrunner. There has been the occasional highlight but the majority were average at best. Not sure where the show goes now.

I've tried watching bits of this series, it's been awful and I've not managed more than 10 minutes before I've flicked over to something else

I'm not convinced by the Doctor, I think shes awful, complete lack of persona and character. As the post above, I think it may well have run its course for a little while

That lad who plays Ryan must have some major dirt on someone at the BBC as there's no way he's an actor.

A welcome back from the dead for this thread, BBC announced Russell T Davies is coming back to be the force behind dr who again, dunno if this is a good thing, did feel he ended up running out of ideas and making it a bit silly ( yea I know this is a stupid statement about a fictional time traveller), on the plus side he can't bring back John barrowman as captain jack( who I always disliked as a character) due to barrowmans liking for getting his knob out on set and generally being an arrogant twat, can't do that type of bantz any more, PC gone mad etc etc

Resurrecting a thread again!

Ncuti Gatwa ( no I’ve never heard of him either) unveiled as the new Dr Who, all those people that were angry about it being a women, will now be angry over his ethnicity

Eric from Sex Education. He was very good in that.

Does seem awfully young. Probably means I'm now an old git...

Don’t worry about it, I’m older than Dr Who and James Bond, and old enough to be Joao Moutinhos and I think John Ruddys dad!

Russell T knows his casting, I imagine he'll be great

Oh, Matt Smith was 26. I'm definitely just an old git, carry on...
