    A fantastic season all around. Bill and Nardole are my favorite companions. Extremis and the finale two parter are some of the best Doctor Who episodes ever written.
  • Oct 01, 2022
    The stories in this season see a pretty serious downgrade from those we were treated to before, they are still fun to watch but are missing that spark that made the previous seasons so great. The only reason this score isn't lower is Capaldi himself who like Matt and Tennent before him brings something new and great to the role. Capaldi makes the role his own showing his skills as a phenomenal actor.

    pearl mackie is a little fishy in this role. The acting abilites of the leads are disjointed

    Peter Capaldi's Doctor was, for me, a hard sell initially. His glowering, sometimes nasty demeanor was such a departure from the two bubble gum Doctors that preceded him that I felt largely uncomfortable for the better part of his first two seasons. However, he is a tremendous actor and his skills really shined toward the end of his run. Jenna Coleman's "Clara" was a superb foil to the Doctor's prickliness, Pearl Mackie's "Bill" may have been my least favorite companion, Matt Lucas's "Nardole" was terrific, but it was Michelle Gomez who stole the friggin' show with her "Missy" ... Holy moly is she sensational.

    To me, this is where Doctor Who started to fall apart. The political messaging started to become a lot harder to ignore, and it was obvious that that was more important than the story. The introduction of Bill as being gay seemed to be more important than giving her any other real backstory, and it just made her character feel bland and uninteresting. I thought Pearl Mackie did a great job with what she had though, I just felt the writers really let her down a bit. "The Pilot" was her intro episode, and was overall forgettable. This is compounded with the season being about a time lord who travels, but he doesn't right now, so it is just a little boring. The only episodes I thought were really worth the time were the two part season finale "Resolution/the Doctor Falls", and I really enjoyed these two. The separation of Bill and the Doctor, yet having Bill able to watch the Doctor as time passes was very well done, the tension of the mystery in the hospital and who was behind it was great, and the Missy/Master banter was perfection. Between Bill being a bit of bland character that needing fleshing out, and an overall boring story arc, this season was the worst of New Who for me so far.

    Matt Lucas and Pearl Mackie are excellent companions and foils to Capaldi's irascible no.12 and Michelle Gomez gives a blistering turn as his best friend. Not the strongest of seasons but even weak Moffat is almost as strong as a pan-galactic-gargle-blaster!

    I stopped planning to watch first run episodes this season and caught them as repeats/reruns or just recorded them so I could fast forward through them.

    The worst set of dr who stories until Chibs took over and made it even worse .
  • Nov 05, 2021
    This season really hinged upon the gravitas that Peter Capaldi brought to the role. Great performance as the Doctor. The writing this season was, meh. The companions were okay. Still a great show.
  • Sep 21, 2021
    It was entertaining, but nothing special
