Doctor Who season... 11?
« on: October 10, 2018, 06:04:23 AM »
I gotta admit - so far I'm liking the new Doctor.  There was a speech about changing/evolving in the first episode that was a bit on the nose, and I'm not sold on the menagerie of companions, but the Doctor seems pretty good so far.  Should've kept the mad scientist goggles from the Sonic construction for the final outfit, though.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

The plot of the first episode was a bit... simple. But simple isn't bad for an intro. The companions are kinda cardboard at this point. I think they killed the wrong one. Where's the TARDIS? I hope they find it soon. However, I'm totally on board for this new Doctor. Maybe Tom Baker was right and the role is actor-proof. Whittaker is certainly handling the role well so far.

I do have one question: she survived the fall from the TARDIS, how? Resilient lady. Shouldn't that fall have brought another regen? Okay. Two questions. It's kinda the same question though.

She was still regenerating.  It's like being Deadpool without the cancer.

Ah that's easy - the steel metal roof broker her fall.

I admit I like it a lot so far, but I've also really enjoyed Whittaker since seeing her in "Attack the Block". And I agree with Tenzhi and was hoping she'd keep the goggles.

I officially don't like Ryan, even though the Call of Duty bit was amusing.

And I didn't care for the new TARDIS interior.  I might not mind it if it was brighter.  Maybe paint the strange roundish wall lattice white, and then light the crystals with blue or a cool green instead of that sickly honey colour.  But at least it has a biscuit button, which is almost as good as a muffin button.

It was better when the doors opened right into the console room. Had the illusion of the inside being bigger then the outside.

Now it looks like they walk through the box like a hallway into another space.

I always prefer the inside brighter like it was for Pertwee and the 80s, but I dig the new design.

All of the companions are still leaving me cold. I hope this improves.

The plots are still meh, but passable.

But I love 13!

And love the new opening.

Yeah - my little niggle about the new TARDIS set aside - I think she is great.

Didn't bother me in the first place they cast a woman, and it still doesn't.

I like the opening and music - a nice callback to the older days with simple titles.
