Re: New Dr. Who

Oh, I intend to keep watching...  I'm just sad about the events of the episode.  It actually was a well-written / well-performed ep.

Re: New Dr. Who

The Thirteenth Doctor has been announced! (Spoilers at link).

About time, I say! And apparently it's a whole new production team, too, which is good, since I couldn't watch during the awful Capaldi years.

(I also wonder what this will mean for the "Valeyard" thing back in Season 23).

Re: New Dr. Who

I shall reserve judgment until several episodes have been watched and I can voice an informed opinion. I detested Capaldi. I loathed Clara. The only episodes even remotely interesting were the ones including Missy and the ones including Bill. I find it interesting they've done away with Missy and are bringing back the Master. I do wonder what is going to be done about a companion.

I, too, am reserving judgement until I can watch a few episodes. But at least I can watch episodes again!

It'll be interesting, as you say, to see where they go with a companion or companions.

Re: New Dr. Who

I was SO disappointed with the Capaldi seasons. I actually haven't even watched this last season yet. I think the showrunners did him a disservice- he could have been an amazing Doctor. More than Capaldi leaving, I am supremely grateful that Moffat is leaving, and handing it over to someone I respect a great deal (I LOVED Broadchurch).

And I'm thrilled to get a woman Doctor (still not ginger!).

<-<-<- That's what *I* said!!

Can't say I've watched any of the new (since 2010) consistently, but I really, really liked Missy.

Missy: [pushes Clara into hole]

Missy: About 10 feet.

Re: New Dr. Who

Oh, guys. I'm so glad I'm not alone in hating these last few seasons. I felt terrible hating a show I've loved since 1985.
