    Good News for Dr Who Fans

    I'm sure this will be greeted with some cheers...

    Doctor Who’s Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall to Exit in 2022

    https://gizmodo.com/doctor-who-s-jod...xit-1847385111

    While I felt Whittaker was unfairly attacked-- often because people felt the Doctor should not be female-- her run never quite worked for me. It showed some promise that I felt never materialized. And I feel that Chibnall was the main reason it didn't work. You can only do so much with poor material.

    Have no prob with a female Doc --------- Doctor Donna would have been perfect

    I still can't believe you guys (UK watchers) pay a TV TAX to BBC for feeding you sh_t like the past few seasons.

    I think it would be good news if they were gone already. They made Doctor Who suck really bad, and it probably will never recover.

    I think the Doctor, and many other icons of pop culture we treasure here, are resilient to varied interpretation.

    Agreed, if any series is adaptive to change, it's Doctor Who.

    Not really good news, They might bring in an even more insipid creep to ruin the show.

    I still clearly remember when (in 1996-ish) I HATED the "FOX" version of Doctor Who on its release.

    Doctor Who, half human ??? … etc.

    Only thing that made it watchable was the cameo by Will Sasso ---(IMO, greatest fat-guy comedian since Jackie Gleason)

    I liked Jodie as the Doctor, but a lot of the material she had to work with...not so much. I felt the same for Peter Capaldi, he was so good, but a lot of the episodes were soooo bad.

    And Chris Chibnall certainly didn't endear himself to long time DW fans by arbitrarily subverting more than 50 years of established canon.
