Trivia

"Doctor Misterio" (without the "y") is the name given to the Doctor Who (2005) series in Mexico. Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi went to Mexico as part of the Doctor Who World Tour and Capaldi became mildly obsessed with the name. Because of this it became one of the inspirations for this episode. See more »

Christmas Ruined

I wish there was a 0/10 rating on IMDb because I would use it for this. I've always been a huge Doctor Who lover, but this is the absolute epitome of Moffat-Era Doctor Who being ruined. Everything about this episode is god awful. It's written like a 12 year old's fan-fiction, the costume design is cringy at best, the effects are worse than ever. I could not keep a straight face during watching this, laughing at it and just wanting to fall through the earth. It's quite unfortunate, Peter Capaldi is a brilliant Doctor but he got the worst team making the show behind him. Predictable, boring, rehashed. Every single Hollywood trope was used to the point of annoyance. Not at all clever. Not at all magical. Not at all Doctor Who. Season 9 was bad I thought, because they passed brilliant opportunities and made them boring somehow but here they took a whole new level. I personally can't wait until Season 11, because both Moffat and Capaldi are to retire from the show after Season 10. I also don't understand how they could've taken a whole year off to come up with this... Also why would BBC spend a bunch of money developing another garbage spin-off show, when they could've just put more money into actual Doctor Who to make it good and re-kindle the audience. Doctor Who is one of the few shows that can make me feel that child-like wonder again, did not happen to me this time around. I'm sorry but this is a Zero out of Ten for me. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone, let's hope Season 10 is good...
