Something is Missing
26 November 2018 | by mjstanleySee all my reviews

Doctor Who has always been a very specific show, but this new series isn't and it almost doesn't feel like the same show anymore, which is probably a bad thing since most people watching are used to something else. In a way I think Doctor Who is alienating it's longtime fans.
