    After a rocky start, I thought things started to come together by the end of last season. I like the companions. Hopefully the Whitaker era continues to gel.

    But then again, I consider Matt Smith the worst Doctor of the modern era... so clearly its subjective.

    I can't watch the show … I just can't watch her as Doctor Who

    As far as i'm concerned Capaldi was the last Doctor Who and this is just a spin-off like K-9 and Company

    i don't watch anymore either. I gave it a shot last season and just didn't like it. I didn't really like Capaldi either. I will tune back in for the next Doctor

    He was pretty bad, but I have to say "Turkish" aka Chris Eccleston. Was the worst, UGH! Sadly out of ALL the Modern doktors, ONLY ; the WAR Doctor was my fave! :(

    BUT! I did enjoy the last series with Jody and she did do a good job, and they had some good stories.


    Sean should appear as his dad as the 3rd doctor and Baker should return as the Curator

    Was reading for season 12 they hired all British soap opera writers -- none in the Sci Fi genre

    Also said the BBC is doubling down on their PC stance from last season even though it was a turnoff for many fans

    It will also be revealed The Doctor was originally a woman -- making Hartnell the first regeneration

    Is the BBC trying to sabotage Doctor Who or are they just crazy inept ?

    The general consensus is that it's a little of both.

    it's the PC stuff that really turns me away from shows like this. Supergirl was another one. too damn preachy for it's own good. Unfortunately I think it is a product of the times we currently live in and is not gong away anytime soon

    I don't necessarily see any of this as the dreaded "PC Monster" everyone is fearing, it's obvious to me that the BBC was looking for a new audience and a total refresh. The show was getting a little stale, I'm not sure another male doctor would make much of an impact with younger viewers.

    Personally, I was on board for a female Doctor as long as it was good and they had a plan for it. However, last season was largely meh. Boring stories, weird plodding music and the worst of all, a criminally underwritten and inconsistent Doctor. I enjoyed some of the concepts and attempts to stand out but most of it felt undercooked.

    I feel as bad for Whittaker as I did Colin Baker back in the day, she is a capable actor but she's bearing the brunt of other's lackluster labours. Usually, when I get bored, I review old seasons of Who, this time I didn't bother, not one second viewing of any show from that season.

    The only standout for me was Graham, the best character on this so-called "PC" show is an old white guy.

    This new season trailer feels like they're trying to regroup and go back to RTD, I have no expectations, hopefully, I like the new direction.

    That rumor about the special is hopefully false because if it isn't, I may tap out too. There is no reason to tamper with show canon like that, it does nothing to improve the quality and it almost feels passive-aggressive.

    I still haven't finished all of Whitaker's season, I think I had an episode or two left and the NYE special. That said, I thought the season was fine. Not quite as good as 10 or some of the better 12s stuff, but certainly better than Matt Smith. He was insufferable and the seasons were all pretty awful. His last season was partially bearable, but pretty much all of the Amy Pond stuff is best forgotten.

    That said, Graham was the best part. He brought a great heart and soul to the show and I was happy to see a different kind of companion.

    It's kind of the same thing with Wonder Woman... That was supposed to be a movie all about female empowerment or whatever, but Steve Trevor was basically the best part of the whole thing. Whoops!

    Anyway, I'm down for more Who, even if it's not quite what it once was, it's been that way for a while. My only real issue with a lady Doctor was that they did it so soon after doing a lady Master. Kinda weak writing in that regard. I still want them to do something with McCoy while he could still feasibly do a crossover.
