Did You Know?


When this show was in development, Jane Tranter and Lorraine Heggesssey talked about Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993), which was a "fantasy drama on a Saturday night", and that they wanted the new series of Doctor Who to be something like that, which helped Russell T. Davies to get the tone of the show and wanted the new series to have the warmth, the colors and wit which the Superman television series had, and to have its own mythology. See more »

User Reviews

bad writing is killing a series I love
5 November 2018 | by l-s-rosenblumSee all my reviews

I just finished the 5th episode with Jodie Whitaker as the new doctor. The writing is so weak and the stories so dull and plodding that I can't blame the cast. I get that the transition to a new doctor takes some time both in terms of storytelling and character development. But there seems to be little continuity between the old and new doctor. They are technically the same person! I'm not asking her to be the same as the previous doctors. I get that they are trying to do some new things, take new paths and so some breaks with earlier seasons are necessary. But is feels like they have erased much of her past. Also, the old doctors used to have some fun. This doctor is kind of a grind. I get that the showrunner said they were going to stay closer to earth and old foes would not revisit the show much if at all, but the stories just feel juvenile and lack depth.

I used to be excited to catch the next episode, but now it feels like drudgery just to get through it. Keep the cast, but something needs to be done about the writing!
