I now realize I never actually heard her voice before. I did see Attack the Block though... Glad they're letting loose on the thicker accents, anyway.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I already like this new Doctor.  She's almost got a kind of Sylvester McCoy feel to her.  Can't wait for the premiere next week.

Skipped a couple seasons but have come back for novelty purposes. Liking Jodie as the doctor. Somewhat similar to Tennant. Just hoping they drop down to 1 companion soon and that the one companion is bradley walsh. The other 2 are pointless filler to me. Stuff the bbcs " inclusive and ethnically diverse makeup" thing.


In M.U.G.E.N there is no magic button

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

Well, a lot of the classic Doctors had a crew of three companions.  They just had an easier time working them all in because they were working in terms of 4 to 6 part serials and not just single episodes.  It's still early in the season, plenty of time for them all to get more fleshed out.

I'm really enjoying the Thirteenth Doctor so far.  She's got this sort of scatterbrained way about her that's a lot of fun.  The new TARDIS is nice too; it's a very fantasy steampunk look in contrast with Twelve's academic aesthetic.

Spiders from hell on a Sunday night, someone's not afraid of losing viewers. The Alien facehuggers on the Moon were acceptable, but these ones just hit a bit too close to home.
(also I hate that new theme song, it just hurts my ears)

About time ! Early 2020. Didn't even hear anything about the filming.

Slightly extended trailer, now it's new year's day. I had a feeling in the previous one, but now that we have a better view of that haircut, that's definitely Tesla there. We've never seen him in Doctor Who so far, have we ? About time.

That reminds me that I need to go back and finish the last series.  Without any services that were streaming it it became kind of a pain to track down each episode as they were coming out.

Same, haven’t been able to see her 1st season. Didn’t help that the last Capaldi season was very underwhelming. So the hype to find them hasn’t been there either

Oww, jumping right into things with this first episode. After the previous season trying to only bring new things, I didn't expect this to get there so fast.

edit - just noticed that guy makes a little o mouth right after saying his name like he spooked himself lol

What exactly was the plot?
Isn't that pretty much always the case with random Doctor Who villains like that ? Like the 2D creatures in the shrinking Cappaldi episode and that sort of things. I figured it was about introducing the new universe, but I wouldn't hold my breath over that plot point ever coming back. Just like the 2D guys. So yeah, business as usual with Doctor Who, it's just the villain creatures of the week. Better than the "humans were the villains all along" of the week from last season.
And yeah, the disguise bit was really weird. For a second I really thought they were about to drop a new face already.

edit for ep 5
Woohoo Jack's back ! Finally. I hope that wasn't just a gratuitous cameo and he'll be around again, at least for this season.
Another Doctor... I wondered for a moment if this Master is connected to her timeline instead of being connected to Thirteen, but he recognized the four beats signal so he's after Ten. Well, he could still be between Simm and Missy, but I don't know if they'd bother with that at this point.

edit again
So the official Youtube channel put this up

From his phrasing, now I heavily suspect he's not coming back anytime soon (maybe in the season finale but I'm not even sure). So now this gratuitous cameo is really feeling like one piece of what they've been doing so far this season : backpedal on the entire previous season by throwing everything they can from the classics to tell the fans "okay we fucked up the last season by trying hard to not bring anything back from before, but we get it, we love you, please watch us again, look at all the toys you love" but they're not actually doing anything with it.
So all that's left right now is see where this extra Doctor bit is going (and let's just disregard that they introduced a new Time Lady / someone else from Gallifrey only to kill her off immediately without any regeneration or whatever)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
