The initial choice of Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who leads is a disaster of a decision in the making

Did Peter Capaldi say that the BBC does not really care about Doctor Who?

Maybe I heard wrong, but then again.



Moffat: "Should a woman play the Doctor, Let a man play the queen" Along those lines



Point well taken Stephen Moffat.



The Doctor represents the typical British gentleman. From the grandfatherly Hartnell to the ultimate fan Capaldi, this role is not meant for that of a woman. To take Moffat's argument further - imagine Susan calling a woman grandfather!



Bad casting and business entertainment decision! Very divisive and acrimonious



Missy the Master was bad enough and then the aging general shot and regenerating into a woman. This had negative press.



What about fan reaction to Jodi as the Doctor (she might get released when the week is out):



Twitter:



"Oh great a female Doctor Who. What next? Female real doctors? Female pilots? Female scientists? Female sisters and mothers? Female WOMEN?!"



"A female Doctor Who?! But what if she periods all over the space-time continuum?!?"



"Breaking News: Majority of British public agree that it doesn't really matter what bits Doctor Who's got because the show is s*it anyway."



"I don’t need femimms sorry but a female Doctor Who is just unrealistic. Only a man can believably play an extraterrestrial time lord"



"Number of people upset Doctor Who is a woman. Number of people angry that they're upset. "



Facebook Page:



https://www.facebook.com/TheDoctorWhoHub/



"So long Doctor Who."



"Hope Dr who goes down the toilet Gets the axe It will never be the same again"



" Thanks for ruining doctor who BBC it was fun while it lasted."



"I will never watch the show again. It's ruined now"



https://www.facebook.com/DoctorWho/



" Personally, I'm offended. Why can't we have disabled-trans-minority representation in our fictional story about a time traveling alien and his Police-box of Science?

-----

Scuse, HER Police-box of Science?



Those people need to be represented too, or else they can't possibly enjoy the show!



I demand a Multiethnic, Trans Doctor of Color in a wheelchair immediately!"



" I'm out. Until the next Doctor."



"PC and feminism pandering ruining another great show. If they want a female character get another good companion like they have many times before! Hopefully she and Moffat are gone by this time next year!"



" I shan't be watching. Doctor who has and should have always been a male role and I am fed up with political correctness interfering with this iconic character in the very fist ever episode the doctor referred to himself as a grandfather not grandparent so I think that says it all I will wait till a man returns to the doctor who role sorry BBC see you sometime in the future ☹☹☹☹☹ "

"What a way to well and truly ruin the programme....just for the sake of being PC...😡😡😡"



"Wake me up when the Doctor is male again"



"Dr has been a man since day 1 why now does the Dr have to be female? Why change it now"



"So when River makes her planned cameo will she and the new Doctor be a lesbian couple?"



"That's a shame. It used to be one of my favorite shows. Then Capaldi came, and now this. I kept watching Twelve but now I'm done. I really miss Ten and Eleven 😭 I wanted something like that again. (I also miss Donna, Captain Jack, River and the Ponds)"



"Very post-modern, very stylish. This season was bad enough with the inane, preachy self- righteous lectures masquerading as stories, next season will be insufferable. Goodbye - I won't be watching. But, since you guys despise people like me, it works well for everyone"



"Doesn't surprise me. My little girls LOVED this show...the past season we had to call it quits. This is the logical next step after introducing lesbian courtship into what once was a family show. It's a pity."



"I'm a woman, but would rather have a male Dr Who!"



and so on. What a captial debacle!!



Get ready for a very unpopular DW Team!!



http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2017-07-16/how-doctor-who-boss-chris-chibnall-tricked-us-all-about-not-casting-a-female-doctor



My reaction remains Extreme disappointment in the choice of a ldea as the Doctor. I recall Moffat criticism by responding "... let a man play the queen" This choice is a disaster. Jonathan Powell must be contented to see the dismise of Doctor Who this way. Save Doctor Who!! Jodie Whittaker resign as the Doctor now!!!!!





The Doctor Falls

8/10



The BBC intro to this really rocked!!



Some speculation was correct and some not.



We see Mondasian children playing on the Mondasian spaceship terrified by the scarecrows, Mondasians getting converted.



All right.



So we go back to Bill converted into a Cyberman on the Mondasian ship.



The Master and Missy are about to be targets when the Doctor upgrades the algorithm.



On floor 1056, the Master tortures the Doctor about the conversion method.



So the Master departed Gallifrey in a TARDIS and ends up on this ship.



Can someone explain how this Mondasian ship ever came into being?



Well Nardole to the rescue where he finds a shuttle and the Masters climb about and Cyberbill holds everything back to help the Doctor.



Here is a downer! We see Bill viewing herself as human, but she is an upgrade. Really, stick with the upgraded Bill Pots throughout until the end. Love the angry Bill Potts Cyberscene as she is fighting for her identity.



Thank you for the pointer Stephen Wilson



Missy and The Master really bungles the plot with Missy checking on the lift,



re-engineered cyberman comes out and the target is located.



The fight is on to save the Mondasian humans from being upgraded.



The cybermen will fight for their Mondasian humans to be upgraded.



The Doctor will not allow it, especially Children .



Who came first, the Cybermen or the Borg?



One scene, Missy is killed, but I was surprised it was the Master who did it.



The Master will regenerate into Missy as Missy back stabs the Master getting a new demat circuit.



Thank you for the clarification SM.



The Doctor order Nardole to go 3 floor up while he holds of the cybermen. Nardole thus leaves the Doctor.



Mad Doctor in battle and in the end, the Doctor blows up the whole floor.



Cyber Bill does survive.



Here is another downer, The time traveling pilot Heather turns up. Talk about not her again. This I think ruins the close.



Heather and Bill mysterious brings the Doctor back to the TARDIS and sets the TARDIS in motion.



What happened to the Mondasian ship near a black hole? Did Heather pilot that ship away back to Mondas?



So Heather and Bill Pilot the TARDIS to safety where globs Bill and Heather can continue to travel.



The Doctor is awaken and lands with the Cloister bells going off.



Big Spoiler!



The Doctor is in 1986 Antarctica resisting regeneration where he meets his original self.



Looking forward to the Christmas Episode and



predictions:



The Doctors will fight the cybermen,



The first Doctor will help the 12th Doctor to see he needs to regenerate.



The traveling goos could be back.



The 13th Doctor is male!

Wprld Enough and Time - Really a well liked episode

8/10



So we open with the Doctor about to regenerate. What is causing that and who is the next doctor? Hopefully a man. We might know next week.



Looks as if the Doctor does Falls but how?



So the Doctor wishes to test Missy by choosing a ship in distress. This should go normally.



Doctor Who? That could be the real name after all. Missy does a poor job of not getting the word companions correct.



No wonder the Doctor consider Missy his best enemy.



A blue man transporting humans is scared for his life.



He shoots Bill with his gun resulting in a big hole through her chest.



A mysterious group of human like creatures take her away to be 'healed'.



So Bill meets this mysterious alien of a man who befriends her.



The Mondasian Doctor and nurse are rather sinister throughout.



The mystery man does give Bill a tour of the ship on a certain floor showing humans that are dying.



So for the twist.



The Doctor, Missy and Nardole arrive on floor 1056



Time is in different level as a black hole is affecting the flow of time.



Bill is upgraded with the help of this mystery man Alien.



Missy find out that she is on a Mondasian colony ship and confronts her past self, the Master, disguised as this alien. The Master is concerned about his future.



Please understand what a paradox this causes.



The Doctor and Nardole find a Mondasian Cybermen who turns out to be Bill Potts converted.



Enter the Master and Missy to announce the Genesis of the Cybermen.



Is this ship heading back to Mondas?



Looks like a war will happen.



Looking forward to Part 2, the Doctor Falls.

Eaters of Lights - Review with spoilers

8/10



And welcome back Roma Munro who wrote Survival in 1989.



Started with a mystery, near modern day Aberdeen ,a hill with known music and a rock formation with a TARDIS inscribed on it. Wait, A TARDIS?



The Doctor investigates 2nd Century AD where Aberdeen will be with the disappearance of a Roman Legion.



Nice start but how will this flow?



A bit rough.



Bill is split up from the Doctor and Nardole and is attacked by a Pict only to fall into a pit with a Roman Soldier.



The Doctor and Nardole investigates wondering why a corpse of a Roman Soldier is in advanced decay.



Bill is not aware of the ability of the TARDIS to translate everything telepathically.



Nardole and the Doctor are captured by the Picts only to briefly escape.



The Doctor visits the temple which he discovers is a portal to another dimension where these eaters of lights come from.



Bill's Roman friend is kill only to meet up with the rest of the Legion.



The Doctor stays with the Picts whom he discovers are the gatekeepers.



The eater is getting stronger to the point where it might devour the universe.



Scary, eh?



The Doctor is working with the Picts while the Romans and Bill are trying to escape via a cave network.



The Romans and Bill encountered the eaters of light and escape up a ladder to be reunited with the Doctor and Nardole and the Picts.



Initially, Picts and Romans have a standoff.



The Doctor negotiates a peace so that the bigger enemy can be confronted.



Credit Roma for this one!!



The Doctor and all forces the creature back to the portal. The big argument breaks of on who is suppose to guard the entrance.



The Doctor, I can outlive you all and fight this.



Picts and Romans gather together to fight the eaters.



This is a Pict/Roman battle not a Doctor Battle.



Great resolution.



So back to the TARDIS and surprise Missy is there doing maintenance.



Any nitpicks?



A Black Roman soldier? All right Rome did conquer north Africa.



Homosexuals and Lesbians in the 2nd century? Yes there were some.



Overall I enjoyed his.



Looking forward to the next thrillogy.

Doctor Who - The Lie of the Land Review with SPoilers

9/10 - I am a real sucker for a dark Orwellian theme.



The Thrillogy 9/10 !



Started in a virtual reality on how the decaying monks would invade Earth.



We also find out that Missy is in the vault.



The moved onto to an invasion where Bill sacrifices herself and the Doctor's

sight is restored.



What happened to Erica?



So now onto the Orwellian nightmare where the Doctor is part of the monks'

propaganda machine and Bill is trying to deal with her actions.



The monks have been here since the evolution of the Earth? Really Orwellian

and Darwinian!



Nardole recovers and Bill is put to the test.



She passes and the prison hulk where the Doctor is, is now resistance HQ!!



Even the Master aka Missy needs to be consulted as an adversary.



March onto the Cathedral in London.



The Lie of the Land. The monks are benevolent

and in great numbers? Not true.



What a transmitter.



Best line is Fake News Central!!



So the battle is between the Monks and the Doctor and companions.



Bill wins with the memory of her mother.



The oppressors are on the run. Will they be back?



The Doctor is not pure like Missy.



Shed a tear.



Next week , the British Army vs the Ice Warriors.



3 different writing styles, 3 different result.



Whithouse is effect in his Orwellian nightmare depiction.

Doctor Who The Pyramid at the End of the World Review With Spoilers

Really The Doctor is faced with a problem



but what an incredible midpoint.



A pyramid shows up out of nowhere.



An Agrolab is the target for the aliens.



So the President of Earth is called upon by the Secretary General of the U N and find Bill Potts.



All right, how can you get a TARDIS into an aircraft? Nitpick point.



This is not Time-Flight!!



So we end up in a junction, but what the invaders' plan?



The Pyramid is a spaceship with these 'monks'.



The monks can prevent a 'disaster' if the surrender is 'pure'.



Step 1)



The Earth must show unity.



Attack neutralised.



Still an error happens at the Agrofood labs.



The multiple visits to the Monks' pyramid should be a clue to a distraction.



The Midnight Clock is counting down.



The Doctor needs to solve the puzzle.



The plan is to blind the monks and isolate the fault the monks are using.



Dead are the UN Secretary and the 3 marshals of big world military powers.



The Doctor does find the fault in the lab and decides the only way to stop the disaster is to blow up the lab.



Bill pays a price as the Doctor's sight is restored

Extremis

9/10



Written to intrigue



I may not be a fan of the RCC but even in simulation we see a greater evil.

Computer simulation, what an idea.



The Doctor is blind and guarding the vault.



He is remember the 'execution' of Missy and is sworn to guard her for

1000 years dead or alive. Nardole is in there as comic relief.



Also the Doctor is in Bristol to receive a Vatican City delegation, or is he?



He picks Bill up. Pipes and the Pope? Nice tough of rough humour.



The Vatican, Veritas is 'getting translated' and suicides are being committed.



I will blow this open right now. An alien invasion simulating Earth is

happening. Even the projecotrs are gettng it correct.

Are you real or part of the simulation?



This reminds me of a Combination of The Android Invasion and the Long Game.

The Android Invasion, the adversary simulates Earth to see how to invade it.

The Long Game, everyone on Earth is playing a Game within a Game.



So now we have an invader with the perfect replication, Doctor included. Well

big mistake, personality is also copiedy and hence the Real doctor could

be warn. 3 plots lines in one.



Plotholes anyone?



Can the Doctor stop the invaders? That is answered next week after

Arsenal beats Chelsea for the FA Cup!

Oxygen

9/10 .







The Doctor sets this up in lecture and in Space Oxygen is a cost. So

much that suits will deactivate their host.

A lot of double entendres and many a theme on capitalism, computer

systems and quite timely given the massive randomware incident. Sorry

simpletons you do not qualify.



So the Doctor answers a distress call. No oxygen when he arrives. All

right, light up the station and let the party begin. A nightmarish

masquerade!



The Doctor makes contact with the crew and a bit of panic takes place.

The crew wants to know how the Doctor and companions arrived. A chase

does occurs of zombies going after the Doctor and friends

and when they arrive in the spacesuits that were under repair They meet

the humans and a blue man. Funny stuff about discrimination.



Well the zombie suits do break in and an escape has to take place.

Bill is in a really damaged suit. Her helmet will no work.



The Doctor gives her his helmet.



Does anyone recall terror of the Zygons and even 4 to Doomsday

where the Doctor can conserve oxygen in a state without health damage.



The Doctor ends up blind. All right, please explain!!



So what is really happening.



The suits are deactivating their 'organic' component as programmed!

The suits are programmed to believe that the organics could be wasting oxygen

and that is costly. Nice Capitalistic thought!!



The Doctor did 'zombie' Bill the second time and made the suits think

that death is too expensive!

Well programmed! Not a hack, but , yeah, talk about crocked programming.



The Doctor drops the surviving crew and headquarters.



Back in Bristol, it is revealed that the Doctor is still blind.



Wait on till next week.

Doctor Who - Knock , Knock

Knock, Knock? Who is there? Doctor . Doctor Who?



Enough funny stuff



8/10



What a lot of surprises in that episode. Terrifically written!



So Bill joins up with 5 members looking for a flat.

They find one with the help of an old gentleman who is looking for 6 tenants.



1st Tenant moved in and something weird happens.



The Doctor helps Bill to move (How does the TARDIS surround it target?

This has not been explained properly)



The Tower is forbidden, why? We shall see.



Bill and the rest



The Doctor decides to check things up on his own.



So insects like lice / cockroaches are eating people alive , why? And

why are they part of the wood?



Bill and friend make it to the tower after another mate goes missing.

The Doctor finds and elevator and he and a new friend espace under.

They find previous tenants . 2 more tenants are enveloped.



The Doctor decides to Help.



All right. Nit pick time.



How come Eliza believed that this was her father and not her son? Not

explained.



The slugs, They help the Eliza but no explanation to their origin.



The Doctor opens the windows and a fireworks show is happening.



Mother releases the slugs and takes her son with her.



Why are only the recent 6 released and not everyone else?



Certainly everyone should have been released.



Everyone escapes.



The Doctor opens the vault. What is in there?

Doctor Who Thin Ice

** This review may contain spoilers **



Wow! This is mindblowing!!



No explanation to what the creature in the Thames is or what came about, but a good storyline!



The Doctor and Bill are in London 1814 where an ice carnival is happening.



So the TARDIS does land and should check his scanner before going out.



Privilege, scandal, urchins, you name it well written.



So people are pulled into the Thames and are a meal



Why?



The Doctor sees a disappearance for himself , a poor young thief named Spider, and decides to get involved (Typical).



He does get the street children / urchins onside (good writing on social consciousness).



The Doctor decides to get Scuba gear and dive in!!



Underneath is a creature that is chained( why?)



Further exploration to a factory with the help of a circus worker reveals mud brick that can be used as rocket fuel.



The Doctor visit the villain Lord Sutcliff and here comes the action. He fakes Club credential and when Sutcliff becomes ungentlemanly, the fight breaks out and the Doctor and Bill are arrested.



The doctor makes the most compassionate speak and have no effect.



Both the Doctor and Bill are sent to the Thames and the desperation now climbs.



Sonic Screwdriver to the rescue and the man with the tattoo holding the sonic screwdriver is lunch.



The best scene. The Doctor is a servant to humanity and Bill has to give the order.



A decision making moment for the companion that makes this the best episode so far.



Yes for liberation and then the action happens.



Bill and street urchins evacuate the river.



The Doctor works on his side.



Sutcliff decides to blow up the river circus.



Instead the Doctor reroutes the explosives to free the creature.



Game on! Sonic Screwdriver is recoverable.



Sutcliff is that last lunch for the fish.



Love the ending where the urchins inherit the Sutcliffe name.



And that newspaper clip rock.



So what is in the vault?

Smile Review with Spoilers

google TV boxes are useful!!



Welcome to a new era.



I rate this 8.5/10 !



This is much better than last week's mishmash!



Bill does a Rose in this one and written better.



Nardole makes a brief cameo.



So past or future Bill?



Future it is!!





Did someone rip off RTD's 2nd script?



No.



We see the future. Something has gone wrong with the robotic servants

and the humans. People are dying and sadness is target for unmutuality!



The first crew dies ....



The Doctor and Bill arrive to a new city on a planet

20 light years.



There are scanned and greeted.



The robots speak Emoji.



As I said unhappy feelings are reasons for being nailed off.



First its dinner.



Then the garden only to find that the dead are being used as fertiliser.



The Doctor and Bill make it back to the TARDIS rather britally.



The Doctor tells Bill to stay with the TARIDS while he

prevents a next ship from being slaughtered.



Back to the city for the Doctor. So far so good

and the Doctor is looking for something new.



Bill surprises the Doctor (how fast is she) and

Bill is getting under the Doctor's skin.

Yes, the Doctor is the Police . Nice twist.



The Doctor and Bill find a ship (United Earth) and enter.



The doctor gets Bill to read the schematic of the ship.



The Doctor plans to use the ship to blow up the mad machines.



Here is the brilliant twist!!



Bill find a young colonist!



As the Doctor is trying to set the ship to destruct, Bill is trying to

get new information to the Doctor.



The Doctor has to fight a mechanical antibody. The time of his life as usual.



As soon as the Doctor finds out about the new colonist,

he countermans his own sabotage.



He has to now plan a peaceful co-existence with the colonists

and the artificially intelligent life forms, the Vardy

otherwise humanity in its anger could be wiped out.



The young colonist is looking for his mother and feels sad.



An angry fight arises when the shuams and the vardy tangle.



The Doctor does need to work on anger control when bad news happens.



The Doctor's only chance is to hit the reset button

and he does.



The Vardy have forgetten unhappiness and grief.



The humans need to be clamed down.



The Doctor acts as go between and



please everyone smile.



Happy endings and a new adventure awaits.



Plot: Clearer than the start.



The doctor : His usual self



Bill: The companion that is maturing.

Doctor Who - The Pilot 2016 aired 15 April 2017

5.5 / 10



All right Since Christmas we have been expecting Bill Potts

to come to the Table.



The Doctor is trying to crack a vault with Nardole.



Why is the Doctor interested in Miss Bill Potts?



She is tagging along for the ride while the Doctor

poses as a Bristol U lecturer. So how did the Doctor get these creditials

and what are they trying to crack?



Bill and 'Heather' is having a friendly relation on that Hether

is no longer human.



So what is this intelligent fuel and what was it doing at Bristol U?



I wonder if Bristol U has been upgraded since 1992 when I went into

the Library just to check the local politics on a national newspaper.

It looks different.



So Bill and The Doctor has spent some time from say OCtober to

whatever the new semester is.



2 plots. 1 ) The Vault in Bristol.



2) Heather becoming the pilot in this intelligent goo.



What hots up? Heather in Bill's Flat and the chase is on.



1st the vault.



2nd Australia



3rd 23 million years into the future.



All right, this goo which 'midnight' is travelling through space and

time. Rather perplexing.



4th a Movellan Dalek Battle hopefully to kill this glob.



The Glob becomes a Dalek and then back to Heather.



Now for a mental battle. Will Miss Bill join Heather on her travels?



No.



Will the Doctor try to mind wipe Bill?



Bill is trong and looks to be more informed.



A small mental battle is ensuing and the Doctor

and Nardole

decides Bill will joins.



No explanation to what the goo is. No idea of why the vault

is there. No real idea of how everything lines up. I think Moffat

was tired when he wrote this script.



The Doctor : Still as wiley as can be.



Bill Potts: I will give her a chance



Nardole: Creative



Hands up who was impressed.



The Future episodes look nice.
