Hi folks Smile

Well...what do you think?
I thought it was pretty good so far, Matt Lucas adds some comedy to it, so a good start to the new series imho.

Just finished watching this about half an hour ago. I thought it was pretty good--IMHO, Capaldi is much more watchable when he's doing wacky than when he's doing serious and brooding, and with Matt Lucas in the mix wacky is definitely where we're going. Pretty sure the "Doctor what?" joke is well re-used by now, though.

S'ok, I guess

but this pilot Series 10 episode felt a touch like a veneer of what it could have been,
significantly too ponderous & padded, could have been a lot better,
especially in that the 'omnipotent alien engine oil spill' story had a lot more legs than that.
(maybe it still will, later)

Having said that, I think Capaldi is by far the best Doctor actor ever,
would like to see him given less of the 'expected script' filler thing,
and more real personality - e.g. he could have not just been a joshing bystander in the interactions,
but actually getting a bit more involved with the things going on (rather than just observing & commenting).

Still hindsight & all that...
looking forward to the rest of the series, it's potentially so much better than in some previous years.

It was a decent episode, I wouldn't call Capaldi the best doctor just yet, I still have a love for Tom Baker.

As for the engine oil script, seems a bit fair fetched it could get to so many places. I got the reason why it was following Bill Potts, not sure I like her mind, especially that over the top hair do of hers.

overall, I hope this season is decent, unlike the last few seasons we had.

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/jan/30/peter-capaldi-leaving-doctor-who

Capaldi will be leaving at the end of this year, can't say I really blame him, like Matt Smith before him, I feel that the scriptwriters have really let the show down. also interesting is that Steven Moffat will be gone too, so I wonder who will be taking the helm? and if that person will do a better job at things?

Edit,

I think its good that Moffat is going, while he can write good episodes when he wants, "Blink" but since taking over the series, I think the series in general has dropped, also some of the scriptwriting at least in the last series was pretty damn poor at best. So I'm glad he is going, I hope the next doctor will be decent, and who ever takes over from Moffat. Otherwise, the best thing for the BBC to do, is to kill the series off and be done with it.

I try never to judge based on the first episode of a new doctor or companion - they're necessarily a bit different as it takes time to introduce the new character and the story suffers. This was entertaining enough, if a little hammy in places. Bill seems to have a different approach to life that other companions, which could be interesting (or overlooked - you never can tell).

One of the UK tabloids has 'announced' who the new Doctor will be*, but most media outlets seem to be ignoring it, so you can too if you like.
*Or at least, who has filmed post regeneration scenes for the end of the series - I hope that's just Moffat calling their bluff again.

Not really sure he is suitable, I just don't really get any DW vibes when I see or hear his voice. I wouldn't mind a woman being the next Doctor, give the series a huge lick of page that it really needs.

The vitriol on the internet is both entertaining and depressing.

Weird - it's going opposite to what one might expect. I'm finding a significant number of my female Whovian friends are quite anti - maybe the Doctor is the Perfect Boyfriend or something?

I think it would be an interesting change to see a female take a leading role, after all won't be any worse then what we seen so far.

Hopefully if there are a new bunch of scriptwriters and of course steven moffat is also now gone, and to me, I blame the scriptwriters, poor leadership that made many of the earlier episodes pretty horrible, (especially Matt Smith episodes) (and while I don't really rate a lot of his episodes that highly, I do think he was letdown by the above, and was never really given a chance to really shine.

So yeah, I think its brave of the BBC, I also suspected that this would happen, we seen 12 males doing the role, I think its high time we see someone completely different and hopefully with a more interesting acting style and take on the show. Because, if she fails to do a good, job, I say its time to let the series die. as I will stop watching it completely then.

This is do or die in my book, and hell yeah, I say bring it on, show us what your made of!!!

I think that Jodie Whittaker will do well in the role; if she is supported with good writing and the rest of it.

I found this article a good summary of Doctors to date.

Being branded misogynists and internalized misogynists.


Silly women, having an opinion on science fiction and actors.
If only there was a group or society or sorority or movement that would defend their beliefs and views that they are equally entitled to...

But, no... They just hate women. Obviously.

I can't see a problem with it Missy/Master worked very well, the sort of ramance angle between missy and the doc was funny aswell, I see they are not continuing with Bill as companion not sure what to think there she did ok I think , Matt lucas was great though.

There is a precedent here BSG changed Boomer and Starbuck to female worked out very well in my opinion.
