  1. S11.06: Demons Of The Punjab

    The Doctor goes to a place where a million people+ die. Someone dies. The glass aliens from Twice Upon A Time turn up, but they've had a make-over to look like the Fisher King. The Doctor marries someone, but does nothing else. The end. Meanwhite, the Gladiator soundtrack CD is worn down to sand, as the composer takes a week off. It looked pretty, but it did feel very much like a story where the Doctor and companions were totally superfluous. In Rosa, at least the TARDIS team did something, they achieved something. Here, nothing. Meanwhile, we've met as many of Yaz's relatives as we have Tegan's. and I still haven't got a clue who she is, or what she's for.
  2. S11.E05: The Tsuranga Conundrum

    Yet another really boring episode. I know that dull, filler episodes are a fact of life in episodic TV, but couldn't the production team try to give this some spark? A little life in the dialogue? Even Power of Kroll had the Doctor singing opera.
  3. S11.E04: Arachnids in the UK

    Well, that was mostly competant, which is the best I will hope for from Chibnell. I still don't know why we have three companions - I mean Graham's there to nearly die at an emotional moment, and Ryan's there to oversome his bike problem, so he can charge the defibrillator to save his life. Still got no idea what Yaz is there for, and even after meeting her family, she's a flat character. RTD gave his three companions and their shrill mothers more life in one scene.
  4. S11.E03: Rosa

    Hmm, they finally remembered to give the companions character in this episode. I can see very little of Chibnall's style in this, I wonder how much he wrote of the episode that has 'award winning' written all over it.
  5. S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    Again...seems drab. The new console room is gloomy as fuck, there's no sparkle to the dialogue, apart from the Call of Duty moment, that raised a smile. It's serviceable at best. If we don't see more of these race people in another episode, the ending was so abrupt as to give viewers whiplash. And the evil bandages borrowed Prisoner Zero's taunting of Eleven to set up this season's Timeless Child arc.
  6. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    Heee!! I do hope she gets better at it when Chibnall's not having to push the "not like a sexy human woman AT ALL" thing so hard. I'm just concerned that they're studs. Pearced earrings + action sequences = torn ears and blood everywhere.
  7. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    Agreed with all of this. Why is the teenage girl even there? She did nothing all episode, and three companions hasn't worked since 1967.
  8. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    Take Spearhead from Space. Remove UNIT, add Ordinary People. Remove Autons, add Predator. Garnish the regulars with Value Added Angst. In the last scene, veer off into Season 12 style travelling without the TARDIS. Additional thought - did Chibs blow all of this cash on cranes? Because if what played behind the end credits is what the new title sequence looks like, it escaped from the cheaper end of Tales of the Unexpected.
  9. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    That was...a perfectly adequate episode of Doctor Who. Which is more than I expected from Chibnall.
  10. Doctor Who in the Media

    It does seems a bit weedy compared to Eccles' "Do you wanna come with me?" trailer, and Matt's 'falling through space' trailer. But it's only a trailer.
  11. The Thirteenth Doctor: Jodie Whittaker

    I just don't like a Doctor wearing a costume. It's as contrived as Colin Bakers clown suit.
  12. The Thirteenth Doctor: Jodie Whittaker

    Oh dear. Still, it seems it was mostly the colour of her trousers she came up with, not the 'Mork from Ork' vibes.
  13. S11.E00: Twice Upon a Time

    Bye Steven. Bye Peter. I shall miss you both terribly. Good luck to Jodie, with Chibbers in charge she's going to need it. But how wonderful was it to see Patrick Troughton at the end of One's regeneration? I was genuinely startled by the use of clips from the Tenth Planet. The whole thing left me very touched and emotional.
  14. Doctor Who in the Media

    It's literally not. At that point, both One and Susan knew he was talking out of his arse when he claimed he'd go back. By the time he could steer the TARDIS that well,, he'd had four more lives and met a load more people, Susan Who?
  15. S10.E11: World Enough And Time

    Surely you're not implying Chris 'fuck buddies, cyberchica' Chibnall is bad at women? I'm more concerned that he's bad at writing. The best you can say about his Who/Torchwood work is that it gets better. a bit.
