I think the BBC is the CNN of UK. They do not care if their viewership drops to nothing, just so long as everything is politically correct.

btw, have not seen a truly great doctor who episode since Tom Baker moved on. He was the nads!
Most of them were decent up until they decided to go with the old guy. Even then, I could manage to sit through them although it was a challenge due to his unintelligible speech. But now? Forgot it I'm done other than to watch the drama about how much the show sucks.

Who is writing these crap "woke" episodes? They need to bring back Steven Moffat (Blink, etc).

Much of the magic of #4 came from the writing staff, especially the influence of Douglas Adams, Terry Nation (inventor of the Daleks), Hinchcliffe, etc.

I am not going to argue that

The production staff was top notch too, all sorts of scary sets long before CGI

No more Christmas special?
It now seems that the winter
solstice episode is now a New
Year’s Day special? Can’t have
people thinking that Dr Who
might be one of those Christmas
types. Worse yet he might even
be an evil Christian! Keep it
up SJW’s you still have a few
viewers to alienate.

if i want to get woke watching doctor who, i will make a pot of coffee.

Just turn it off....if there are no ratings, they will fire the current writers and that talentless ugly female doctor too

Yup, though in the last few years, it's lost it's charm. I started watching when Tom Baker was the "Doctah". I loved the campiness and dreadful visuals (Spacecraft on a clearly seen monofilament string, etc) but the story lines were great for that era. I still love going back and watching them on Britbox though I hated K9 (as did Tom).

There were also some incredibly sexy "companions"

Wow, this thread is still here. I had forgotten entirely. I see no one's been commenting... probably because the show sucks so bad now that no one watches it, so what is the point.

Have they been canceled yet? I have no idea. Would anyone notice?

Anywhere in 1985 or so, would be fine

I started with Tom Baker and stopped watching halfway through Peter Davison's years. I liked Peter Davison as the Doctor but his biggest problem was that he was not Tom Baker. (Nothing against Mr. Davison personally, of course!)

I have bought some of the early (1st Doctor) episodes on DVD and the stories are for the most part amazing. Well worth a watch. We (the kids and I) are watching all the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Doctors' episodes....then seeing all the Tom Baker ones, and then watching the entirety of Peter Davison's ones. This is just to finish what I didn't finish in the 1980s and also just to say that I saw all of them. And then, I will call it a day half-century! Our kids are welcome to watch beyond Peter Davison of course, and I'll join them if they're into it and want me to, but I NEVER got into anyone after him....

Showrunner Chris Chibnall (same guy who pushed not just for a femme doctor, but specifically for Jodie to play the role) is making big promises about season 12:
Episode one is probably the biggest episode of Doctor Who we’ve done, or has been done, I would imagine. Physically, there’s a lot of stunts, there’s a lot of locations, it’s a globe-trotting action thriller,” he said. “But you don’t want to lose sight of character and intimacy and emotion. You can’t do everything at 11.”
He can promise all he wants; the series is dead to me after all the preaching in S11.

I laugh at those promises. Previous seasons had the entire universe about to be destroyed, more than once IIRC. I don't really know how you get much more ambitious than that. I see from the screen capture in the article that it shows those 4 dopey useless no talent poorly acted companions still there. So, I know I'm not missing anything. What good are they?

And they wonder why their ratings are the worst in 31 years. And back under the 4mil that got it cancelled back in 89.

i guess with all this new Woke bullshit, you can cross my name off of the list of NES Whovians. Not even worth recording it to see if it is worth watching an episode...i deleted my recordings of it.

OK watched the timeless children last night. Sick of the United actors if Benetton going On over and over. It’s like a game on what color actor to use next.

Where are the midgets? A show hasn’t totally sunk into woke hell until you add a midget to the cast.

The actor who plays the master really sucks. The crazy master is just way over the top. My wife is all distracted by his dirty fingernails. I keep telling her that isn’t dirt it’s probably shit. Wash your god damn hands you f-ing filthy animal, at least use toilet paper.
Again he sucks. Perhaps a midget master next time.

We gave up on the show a while ago with this doctor. We came back last night but F-it.

Shitty rant over

Season 11 killed Season 12 for me.

Now I rely on Critical Drinker and Nerdrotic on the YouTubes to keep me up to date.
