Exploding bubble wrap...

I've never felt ashamed of being a Doctor Who fan until this episode.

I know I shouldn't judge it before I watch it, but I'm not going to watch it and I'm still going to judge it.

LOL I mean it was great acting on everybody's part.
They sure built the suspense up & I guess did a good job keeping a straight face.

Not one smh was given when the Doctor revealed the terrorist would be using... weaponised bubble wrap.

Witch episode.

A tad mediocre but a good ol' fashion, back to basics Doctor Who story.

Could've easily been a two-parter...was hoping for a Salem style courtroom drama....science/tech VS witch craft but sadly only a hint to the potential.

That really sucks. I've never understood the BBC with long breaks between seasons.


And then you hear the actors talk about the grueling schedule and you think to yourself, but how?

It's usually due to set locations & waiting for the ideal season to travel & film, especially if it's overseas.

Im not surprised. Not really the best time to have a special. I forgot about it until I saw it recorded on my DVR.

The New Year's Special was pretty meh.

Really enjoying the female doctor angle but my only 2 gripes are the weak story lines & having too many companions.

The whole season was kinda meh for me. Jodie's okay for the Doctor, but like you said, the stories haven't really helped. I agree that there are too many companions. I like all of them, just to many of them at one time. Bradley Walsh has been the highlight of the season for me, he's just been terrific.

I never understood the backlash Moffat copped although he did have a bad habit of alluding to interesting sub plots but never following through.

Chibnall however is playing it too safe with his stories & seems incapable of adding more "mystery & intrigue" to the doctor's character.
