Re: The return of Doctor Who (SPOILERS)

Doctor Who has never been a programme I'm interested in (not a fan of sci-fi stuff) but apparently the New Year's Day special is called Dr Who Meets Bond and has a bit of a Bond theme, so I think I'll give it a go.

I'm enjoying watching the classic Dr Who episodes on Britbox  ajb007/cheers  so many memories
from my childhood, great to see Jon Pertwee again, after all these years.

Re: The return of Doctor Who (SPOILERS)

I was visiting my dad (almost 89) last week, and he came across one of the Whitaker episodes.  Dad has never been in any way, shape, or form a Whovian--having been raised on "hard" science fiction from Asimov, Clarke, et. al., "Who" has always been juvenile to him--but he had a great observation: "The show seems to have lost its sense of humor."

Re: The return of Doctor Who (SPOILERS)

So this season is no better.

Weakest Master, Doctor, and companions. Weakest plots and Tardis design. Poorest humour.

The only thing this iteration has going for it is the way its shot looks better.

That's it. New showrunner please.

I'm so disappointed  in the new Master, his  introduction  in
Pt 1 was great. Then with pt2 he turned into a whining
Teenager !

Who is playing the Master? I’ve not seen these episodes yet but not concerned about spoilers, not much to spoil really is there?

Frankly I’m struggling to get through her first season so far and I’m continually amazed in the overall dip in quality of the series...

It's a shame Jodie didn't succeed, as I think she's a very good actor, but the material (on the whole) and the way the character has been presented has let her, and the show, down.  A darker tone like Eccleston's (with some good humor) would have been far better, rather than the silly, often vacant Jodie.
