Ncuti Gatwa's First Series of Doctor Who

I had high hopes for this. The three specials with David Tennant were great, the Xmas episode was ok and now this.

Two steaming turds of episodes in a row.

One featuring talking babies and a monster made out of snot.

One featuring a drag queen who destroys all good music (or something because reasons) yet somehow there's still a music industry, an EMI and a Beatles.

On the plus side Gatwa and Gibson have good chemistry.

The ratings are at the lowest in the show’s history. They continue to plummet.

Other than the appearance by DL fave Dame Sian Phillips, I don't see much to interest me in the new season.

Russell T Davies who many considered the saviour of the show when Eccleston starred in it is now presiding over its rapid decline. Saturday’s episode had The Doctor kissing the character played by Jonathan Groff. Davies has set out his woke agenda and determinedly continues to push his rigid ideas and clearly it is failing with the audience.

The BBC never admit mistakes and in the case of Dr Who the astonishingly fast decline in viewing figures should have them worried. It will prove interesting to see how this plays out.

This has all been said in the other thread but RTD's "we're woke and if you don't like woke don't watch" is ridiculous because the show is not that different to when he relaunched it.

"First gay kiss" - that was 20 years ago when John Barrowman (ugh) kissed Christopher Eccleston.

The problem is that nothing is new after 20 years.

Except the undisguised contempt towards the viewers
