    'and travel in a tardis" , pretty sure its meant to be 'and travels in a tardis" , i swear the publicity for this season and the last was so bad, gives the show a bad image to ppl who don't realise how great it is

    Disgusted by this assumed gendering from the BBC. Surely, the Doctor should go by "They/ Them" pronouns seeing as they do not have a gender as shown from previous incarnations. Will be submitting a complaint to the BBC for going against their diversity policy.

    After seeing Ben Barnes in BBC 'Golddiggers" with his range and importantly screen presence (lacking with Jodie sadly) I hope the BBC can consider him for a new Dr Who (if he was interested of course).
    Hopefully this can get this potentially appointment TV show back on track. It's one of the few gems still owned by the BBC and a Dr with screen charisma is a requirement, currently that's not the case unfortunately.

    I honestly think the Doctor having Human companions is starting to get a bit stale. I know episodes need to take place on Earth due to budget restrictions, but surely more aliens could become companions?
    I think introducing new Time Lords would be a great and fresh idea. This would involve the Doctor having friends from the Academy (Like the Master) that we haven't even heard of, or a young Time Lord who's inspired by the Doctor.
    A potential plot could be that Rassilon is planning revenge against the Doctor due to his exile, but is almost completely untraceable. The Doctor would then need help from Time Lord friends (new to viewers) that he/she hasn't seen since his/her first incarnation at the Academy. The Doctor and the gang of Time Lords must find Rassilon before he destroys reality itself.
    I just think having the Time Lords more involved in Doctor Who would refresh it a bit. I don't dislike it, but I feel that having human companions 95% of the time is getting old.

    New to Who? The Doctor is an ancient alien whose perspectives and behaviour are inexplicable to mortals - sometimes seeming childish, other times monstrous. S/He's a steward for young minds, and a problem-solver not a listener.

    New to Who? No.
    This is the Doctor. Yeh I disagree.
    She's a Timelord. Annoying is another word.
    She's from Gallifrey. Sure.
    Can regenerate her body. Coool... sooo how long 'til the next one?
    And travel in a Tardis. Great.
    Tardis? Got it? God I feel sorry for new viewers of the show.
    Lets go. Yeh, I think I will. I have re-runs of better Who to watch. 'The Christmas Invasion' on Christmas Day anyone?

    This is a pretty weak ad... Appears woke (which it probably is with what we've seen in the last season, I hope they do better this season with her, but I'm not keeping my hopes up, even as a female doctor the last season could've been a hell of a lot better, but instead only the first episode was awesome).

    She's not a time lord, she's a time lady, as previously said about, for example, the time lady in the end of time that guided Wilfred. And if you'd try to make the argument that it depends on how they were born as, or something else that's creative like that that implies it is still a boy then why do you call him a "she". The sentence she's a time lord just isn't grammatically correct

      @Knight Chime yes. What else are you supposed to say? Time lords and time ladies? It's like in Hebrew where a lot more words have genders than English so when you talk about a group of people, unless you know they are all women, you refer to them in the male version of the word

    Once the 13th doctor regenerates that will mean the doctor has no more regenerations given a timelord only has 13 Regeneration's so considering they don't break Dr who lore by the BBC giving the doctor extra regenerations this incarnation is the final

    • Fellow Citizen
      Fellow Citizen Month ago

      One of the essential ingredients of Dr Who is imagining or reconstructing what one has missed from an episode which clashed with some other activity. I remember watching Destiny of the Daleks and being astonished that it was completely different, and lacking important scenes which I suppose I'd imagined.

      It's also why I'd prefer perhaps 3-part stories, rather than these 1- or 2-part structures which don't leave enough time to ponder between.

    In theory, the best jumping-on points for newcomers are Series 1, Series 5 and Series 11. Each was a fresh start with a new lead writer and new cast. That said, I started watching Doctor Who halfway through Series 3, and that worked out all right, so you can probably start anywhere.
