    I prefer the other Doctor and her Tardis but not the retconning, I despise that by and large in anything. What a terrible waste of Captain Jack though.
    Moffat started retconning with the War Doctor and Missy. It's basically given Chibnall carte blanche.

    I don't think I ever stated the War Doctor was my favourite thing but I recognize it was done out of necessity due to Eccleston. That doesn't mean I like rewriting the first Doctor and subsequently ALL of the Doctor's history, that's going way too far in my opinion and I hope this is going to go another direction. I simply don't think that's OK to create 12 new previous lives, it kind of derides Whittaker to be honest. It derides the whole series if this new Doctor did it all first.

    As for Missy, the Master always escapes and has pretty much been a little loose since the 80s.

    I always thought the War Doctor was a slap in the face to Paul McGann

    If Eccleston didn't want to be the Time Wars Doctor they should have let Paul McGann do it

    There was absolutely no reason to have a "War Doctor" other than having a popular celebrity be a Doctor for a short time.

    I'm not a big McGann fan, but he didn't deserve to be shortchanged just because he wasn't BIG enough to sell movie tickets.

    Right is right and the "War Doctor" wasn't right

    Agreed. As cool as it was to have the legend John Hurt in DW, McGann should have been the primary (and only) Time War doctor.

    Yeah, if I was writing it, McGann would have been the obvious choice as well, maybe there were other factors at play, not sure.

    this previously unknown Doctor (Ruth) may be a call back to the untapped storyline during the Seventh Doctor's run. A writer/or co-producer with John Nathan Turner (whose name escapes me), plotted out a storyline, where the Doctor had many secret lives (reincarnations, if you will) before his first incarnation (the First Doctor). He supposedly lived all the way back to the time of Rassilon and Omega and was a Time Lord known as "The Other". The story was later novelized in the book titled "Lungbarrow".

    It would definitely explain why he had other faces during the mental battle with Morbius in "The Brain of Morbius". The idea was canned by John Nathan Turner, because he thought it revealed too much about The Doctor, however...there are hints sprinkled throughout the Seventh Doctor's run, that he is more than he seems.

    Another interesting thing, in addition to trying to explain those mysterious faces during "Brain of Morbius", the storyline, could also clear up why the Third Doctor claimed many times to be many thousands of years old, while earlier and later incarnations only claimed to be only 700 or 900 years old, respectively.

    Really enjoyed the Judoon episode. For me, Doctor Who is about change and I don't mind them mixing it up. It keeps it interesting.

    The production values of the show are admirably high for this season.
    It's just a pity the overall standard of the stories and the writing doesn't match them.

    (Having said that, at least tonight's episode had a worthwhile ecological message at its core.)

    The last one had strong character connections to make up for some plot holes.

    Haven't we already had hints at the Doctor's past lives in the Brain of Morbius? I guess I don't see it as retconning. Plus I'm still waiting for someone to do something interesting with the Valeyard.

    Tonight's episode had an interesting premise, although it did tend to lose focus towards the end.
    At least it introduced two cool new and potentially recurring villain characters.
