I thought they did a great job with the female master so I don't see why they can't pull it off with a female doctor too.


In terms of the character that's an easier sell, however. He/She's more the Chessmaster than the eccentric nut. I've seen women play the Master's kind of role before, but never the Doctor's.

Again, it's about scriptwriters. Do they have the courage to go there?

Doctor Whos new companion Bradley Walsh? 57 year old game show host and Coronation Street actor.

I actually have some small hope that's a good sign. It seems unlikely they would shoehorn in some sort of romance between a 57-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, even bearing in mind said 35-year-old woman is actually a 2000-year-old alien--it would be creepy as hell.

Not really sure I like the choice mind, but yeah,, get rid of the relationship thing between companion and the Doctor is probably will be a good thing. There been a bit too much oof that and is really does spoil things a bit.

I hope that the next season will be decent, but still, not really keen on the companion choice. (if it does turn out to be him)

My immediate response is "WTF, oh no. . . . "

But then I had similar responses to Catherine Tate as a companion and Heath Ledger as The Joker, which both turned out rather well so I will reserve judgement.

Bradley Walsh has done serious stuff--he did several series of Law and Order: UK, for instance. You shouldn't judge his acting capabilities by the way he presents himself in quiz shows.

still not a fan of Catherine Tate, I still wasn't a real fan of her.

I guess because Bradley Walsh has done quiz shows, he is a bit of a turn off, and I just don't think of the chase in general.

I haven't seen him do serious stuff, i guess people will automatically see him in quiz shows and get turned off by him. still, I guess I will give him a chance, as long as he doesn't screw things up.

OK, who's seen the Christmas special episode?

Spoiler

Nice that the WW1 soldier they saved was an ancestor of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, although doesn't that mean that the Doctor was effectively messing directly with his own timeline, which I thought was a no-no? As for the ending, I get the feeling Steven Moffat is basically thumbing his nose at Chris Chibnall and saying, "OK, get her out of *that* situation, me bucko!".

Oh, agreed. Despite my minor nit-pick above, I think this episode was one of, if not *the*, best Capaldi episodes I've seen. If only he'd been able to hit those heights more often during his run we'd have been talking about him as an all-time classic.

[EDIT] Something cool just occurred to me:

Spoiler

When the First Doctor realises who Capaldi is, he says, "I thought I would regenerate into someone younger?" Hartnell was only 58 when he left Doctor Who, while Capaldi is now 59, so Capaldi would indeed be older than the First Doctor was!

It was a good episode, but I think it had one major blooper

Spoiler
the 12th doctor's TARDIS was taken by the ship, so the two doctors used the first Doctor's TARDIS to travel to the Dalek library, all fine there, but when did they go back to recover the TARDIS? because we then see both TARDIS in space, and they didn't go back to the ship to recover the second? its like they missed a scene there.
Spoiler


But I would say that was fine acting from Capaldi, and yes, it is a shame we didn't see that much, otherwise, I would have rated him a lot higher. But then again, the episode was written by Steven Moffat, so that probably had something to do with it.

Overall, great episode, hopefully the new season will be good as well. [/b]

"Doctor... I let you go."

Very much a forth wall "Goodbye" from both Capaldi and Moffat (and I like him a lot, as do many people, despite the constant and very nasty vitriol on the internet). They had both loved the Doctor since they were kids and were both dying to do something with the show. Now it is done, the torch is passed.

Jodie, good luck Smile I can't wait.

I wonder if the characterisation of the First Doctor here was done with the handover from Capaldi to Jodie in mind?

Spoiler

He seemed more...well...misogynistic than I remember him being from actual episodes he appeared in. Could be Moffat trying to get the people who insist the Doctor can't be a woman to look their own prejudices in the eye.

Spoiler

Very possible. For me, having not seen much of the first doctors episodes, it was more of a good laugh - seeing 12 run around "no no no you mustn't say that" sort of thing and getting all embarrassed whenever 1 talked to Potts in a condescending or misogynistic manner.

That's a fair point to come across as well, we all have things in our pasts we are not proud of. Leaving them in the past and moving forward to improve ourselves today (somewhat literally in the Doctors case?) is important.
