Storyline

The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in their ship the T.A.R.D.I.S. (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time The Doctor regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966). Written by Chris Wright

The quality has declined so far that I don't even recognize the show anymore
23 November 2019 | by claremarie-93830See all my reviews

Its hard to believe that I used to adore this show. After re-watching all my favorite seasons recently (Eccleson, Tennant, and Smith), I decided to try to watch the newer ones again; I had stopped not long after Capaldi because the writing was getting politically driven, which was hurting the intrigue and suspense of the show quite a bit. Still, I hoped that maybe it was just some badly written episodes, and tried it again, continuing into Whittaker.....

I think it's time for me to stop watching this show for good. Some TV shows stay true to the original vision, and keep their character writing consistent; those are the TV shows I love, and there are still plenty of them to be found. Doctor Who is no longer one of the TV shows, and as upsetting as it may be, at least I can stop and still be happy with the doctors that were written well, and who instilled my love for the series in the first place. Spare yourself the mindless British propaganda, and find something new to watch that's worth your time.
