Trivia

The Doctor says she should have known she was on a space ship because there were vibrations. As well, the space ship scenes three episodes prior, Doctor Who: The Ghost Monument (2018), had a shaky cam effect added. In the real world, vessels are not prone to vibrate when in space - there are no sources of vibration outside the vessel, and the vessel itself needs less propulsion from engines than it does in an atmosphere.

Quotes

The Doctor: You're a medic, I'm the Doctor.
Mabli: A doctor of medicine?
The Doctor: Well, medicine, science, engineering, candy floss, LEGO, philosophy, music, problems, people, hope. Mostly hope.

Peter Capaldi should have stayed on longer
7 November 2018 | by author-49568See all my reviews

Peter Capaldi wasn't the best Doctor, but he's tons better than Jodie. Same for the team. The actor who plays Ryan can't even act. Same placid emotion in every scene... how did he get the part?

It's a bad sign when you wish your favourite Doctor Whos can come back. Think #11, Amy, and River. Think #10 and Donna Noble. #10 and Martha Jones. They sizzled. They commanded the action. Even Clara Oswald had a striking presence despite her cool demeanour.

This team? Looks like characters I could meet in a shopping mall. Nothing standing out.

I'm starting to hate the short pants on the new Doctor Who. The striped shirt and cloak are pretty cool but the shorts ruin everything. This is a serious mission not a walk on the beach. Now, when I see those pants, I cringe. All they need to do is lower the hems on the pants by about three inches. There! Problem fixed in that one tiny fashion sense.

Some reviews have commented on the bad scripts featuring otherwise good actors. Nope. It's both. Bad scripts and bad actors. The guy who plays Graham is quite good, but he doesn't seem to belong there.

I'm wondering if it's better to cut losses and start over?

Other Doctor Whos had shaky starts but their worst episodes are so way better than this disastrous season.
