Dr Who New Series

Recommended Posts

I'd been religiously recording each episode to watch when convenient and when I realised I didn't record last week's I... didn't really care. This is telling me something.

I just watch the latest episode and it was like the whole story was based on what would have been just small part of previous Dr Who episode.

The writing is crap so far for this series IMHO, it's nearly as bad as a Pirates of the Caribbean script, one idea and pad it out with mindless waffle for the majority of the running time.

 

We are into episode 6 or 7, and I have absolutely no feeling for any of the cast of this new DR Who, they could all disappear into a Black Hole and nobody would be missed, the DR included.

That was episode 9. At least two episodes were only forgettable :sorry:

 

Didn't the Doctor actually have to work things out from clues once? She's not really the lead character at the moment, she's more a plot explanation device with a magic wand to get the other characters to places where they do most of the work. By episode 12 I actually expect her to say "Oh, I know this one, I read it in the script!" because it is the only way she could work some of this stuff out. What was that at the beginning this week, eating soil to work out the date?

 

We've had the odd episode like that in the reboot, now it's looking like we are getting an entire series of it. Time to get out the Tom Baker era DVDs.
