Lovely intentions, but upon deeper inspection, saying little.

Dec 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The new Doctor and her team - 19-year-old Ryan, his old schoolmate turned police probationer Yasmin, and Ryan's step-grandfather Graham... -- have heart and soul, and are set against a comforting background of South Yorkshire women

I'm now too old for the Time Lord's adventures; a great weariness came upon me as she explained her sonic screwdriver to her charisma-free new pals... But still, I couldn't be more glad that the Doctor is at last a girl.

As the first in what one hopes will be a long line of female doctors, Whittaker is funny, energetic and full of joy. Whovians should be pleased.

Top Critic

Chooses the more complex route of fleshing out the season's ensemble almost more than the Time Lord herself.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The fact that this season, the first to star a woman in 55 years, was so interested in how long it takes to effect change -- and how many people have to suffer in the process -- played like a response to the history of the show.

The Whittaker era is off to a flying start.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

While this first adventure for Ryan, Graham, and Yaz is lacking in the fun sci-fi adventure department, the dynamics of the characters work well so far, and the Doctor herself is already on her way to joining the ranks of fantastic Doctors.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Whittaker's Doctor is more cosmic detective than superhero, as you would expect in the best way from the creator of Broadchurch.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

This season has been marked by change, mostly for the good, though some to the detriment of the overall package. That said, the show's also gotten back to doing what it does best - but with a new flair.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Frequently messy, routinely uninspired, and impressive only in terms of how unimaginative it so often was. All that potential amounted to little more than a shrug in the end.

Dec 30, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

In short, my latest attempt to like Doctor Who failed, but it has failed worse in the past, if that's any consolation, and I was quite taken with Carl, the crane driver and his self-help tapes.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 11

  • 2d ago
    Too many companions, too many social justice plots, too bland season story and ending.
  • 2d ago
    It was ok but way too preachy.
  • 2d ago
    Although the best efforts of the cast, the writing was poor, which was very preachy and lacked any nuance.
  • 2d ago
    Terrible; just political messages and no plot!
  • 2d ago
    Not so good as previous seasons.

    I wanted to like it, I really did. I bought the whole season on Amazon and eagerly awaited watching the new doctor with the kids. We've seen every episode with Eccleston, Tenent, Smith and Capaldi. My kids were the first ones out. 1 1/2 episodes in and they found themselves bored and with an unlikable doctor. Capaldi and Eccleston both bordered on unlikable often, but their well written companions and wonderful universe was always there to carry us through. This time around the companions are so predictable, flat, and ... well boring. I kept going till episode 4, where Chris Noth does his best Trump impression. Though there were a few hilarious moments, again the majority of the writing, plotting, and action scenes just fell flat. Though I own the whole season, I've never watched past 4.

    To be fair I havent watched any of the previous season. Tried to get into the series but couldnt make it past the third episode. The story seems all over the place and its just really boring Sci Fi

    Absolutely Fantastic!!! I love Jodie as the Doctor and the rest of the cast are brilliant too!!! I love that we finally have a diverse group of characters, Yaz has my heart and Brian is my everything! Also I have been wanting an older companion for YEARS and I'm so happy its finally happened and its amazing!

    Terrible, worse season yet. Misplaced political rhetoric over narrative and character development.
