Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Resolution

  • Sep 03, 2022
    Finally this franchise has left me indeed asking "doctor....who?
  • Jul 19, 2022
    There's some nice moments involving Ryan and his Father, and the little bit in which Graham is involved is also good. There's also some neat mood-lighting during the first Sci-Fi moment, which takes place in a sewer. And...that's about it. These were legitimately good scenes, and there are some scenes that...aren't entirely awful moving forward, mostly moments where The Doctor, Yaz & Graham investigate the mystery of what's taking place. However, when the Dalek appears, the show goes from watchable-to-awful, capped by one genuinely embarrassing moment where the Dalek shoots a tank-shell out of the air with a missile that then blows the tank up --- yes, it's every bit as stupid as I describe it. Oh, and there's a genuinely painful joke about a family needing to have a conversation that feels like an unfunny joke from TikTok from one of its many failed comedians. Seriously, I don't think I've ever groaned so much at a joke in my life. If you didn't like S11, you won't like this any better - Yes, it features a Dalek, which is a return to form, but this is, as of 2022, easily the worst Dalek story of all, both televised and from Big Finish. It's an oddball episode, yet entirely devoid of any creativity whatsoever. At the very least it doesn't contain any of the horrific moral lessons like Arachnids in the UK or Kerblaam did.

    Indeed: Oof, that was ROTTEN. 🤢🤮

    After they truly abysmal season 11,this was a half decent episode, although it still appears to be written by people who know nothing about Doctor who or the Daleks other than a quick scan of Wikipedia, certainly an improvement, but frankly, being worse than season 11 would have been an impressive achievement

    beyond awful. Can't say more, just beyond awful! Like a trainwreck in slow motion, bad acting, bad actors, just BAD!!!!! Rotten Tomatoes "paid critics" have obviously drank all the koolaid there is to drink!

    Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh Meh

    Doctor Who at its finest!!!
  • Dec 12, 2021
    Great effects and fine acting but without characterisation or cohesive plot. Perhaps Chibnall can be given a support role.
  • Dec 11, 2021
    10/10 for bad writing. What a steamer! It's like a child wrote the script.

    The quartering made me do it 👀
