I agree that the absolute best Who episodes are generally the standalone ones be it The Empty Child, Blink or Forest of the Dead (all written by Moffat I know... but they are generally regarded as some of the best episodes and favourites of mine). The ones in S11 just feel quite bland in general. The episode 'It takes you away' faired the best for me... it was the one episode that managed to establish a decent mystery, sufficient tension and some sort of character/relationship development.
Most of the other episodes played it too safe, cliched and predictable.
just from Ivu; they showed the first series in May and have done nought since. kinda of sad I thought they were going to do a full rerun but nothing... hoping they will do something before the next new series with Jodie.
There's no xmas or new year's eve special this year but the next season is tipped to start on New Years Day. It's a 2 parter and episode 2 airs a few days later on Saturday 4th Jan with following episodes airing each Saturday. New trailer below...
I don't get too much of the politically correct, SJW pandering vibe of Series 11 which is a good thing... just get back to great stories and adventures!
the first five minutes explains the last five minutes; watch it again and again; the middle bit is rubbish but if you focus on the start and the end you see where episode two will end and probably why the whovians are staring on episode two...
Not really sure about them retconning the Doctor's history since I know there's a lot of lore from the books about the history of Gallifrey before the Doctor was around. Feels like they're doing to Doctor Who what Disney did to Star Wars. Also not sure I'm on board with the Judoon being able to teleport into the TARDIS. That does not make sense.
Yeah, I didn't like it either. Very heavy handed and didn't make much sense.
The companions were just dragged along most of the season and didn't get to contribute much.
Also left me wondering what the point of the whole season was, other than to leave people feeling confused.
However, one of the early Cyberman stories did show a face of the Doctor that wasn't one of the ones we've ever seen before. But even if this does explain that little situation, it messes up so much other stuff.
