Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 12

  • May 10, 2022
    Further defilement of the original show and its fanbase in pursuit of the approval of a minority of people that does not even care about it in the slightest. Shameful.
  • May 10, 2022
    This was slightly better than last season, but all that means is that I was able to watch the entire season without wanting to vomit. Still SO BAD! This season thankfully moved away from the "Ms. Frizzle's Magic School bus" that the last season was. While I was very thankful of this, the writing is still terrible. The character development at least exists, unlike last season, but it isn't good. Graham goes from being a concerned father figure to more of a pompous loud mouth. Not a good change. While I think this was a good attempt to fix the massive fail that the last season was, it wasn't enough. The writing was still bad, the characters were still not fleshed out enough, and overall it was just as disappointing. not worth the time.

    Sigh terrible and anyone who likes this is not a doctor who fan.
  • Apr 24, 2022
    A clear improvement on Series 11 but I fear there's desperate mimicry of the popular Tennant area in play. The current showrunners don't seem to have the confidence to mark their own identity on the series, and after the dreadful series 11 I understand why! It's easy for me to say I feel Jodie Whittaker is miscast though I think she's a great actress. But girls are playing The Doctor in the playground so it really is a big WIN.

    So happy that there is now a woman Doctor. A nice season of Doctor who. I loved how they experimented with branching off to different genres and story line though out the season from the past and some mysterious things that we should hopefully find out what they mean.

    Well spyfall was a surprisingly good couple of episodes, it still had its dumb moments, but overall it looked like doctor who had recovered from the joke that was season 11,then we got orphan 55 & it seemed like we were back to the god awful writing of the previous season, the remainder of the season was hit & miss, with the exception of the very good fugitive of the judoon, but then any and all improvements were rendered null and void by the dreadful decision to make the doctor the timeless child, and that ended my personal interest in watching this show any more, it has been destroyed beyond repair, which is a massive shame as this seadon started out well only to crash & burn at the end
  • Apr 06, 2022
    I love Jodie as the Doctor.
  • Mar 20, 2022
    Starting off with a decent two-parter, it's all downhill from there. It culminates with maybe the worst series finale of Doctor Who's 50+ year history. One that isn't just bad, but invalidates Doctor Who's entire continuity. Even if Chibnall's successor tries to retcon this out, the show is damaged.
  • Mar 02, 2022
    I will start with the positives. I enjoy Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor. I really like Dhawan as the master. I think most of the episodes this season were better than last season. Now onto the negatives. The timeless child is a slap in the face to the history of the show, the lore, and the Doctor herself. Not only does it not make sense but it devalues the doctor as a character, making her into a God of some kind. Perhaps worst of all, it makes the central question, "the oldest questioning the universe", "Doctor Who?" obsolete. Because her name is just whatever the timelords gave to her. I hate this twist and I hope Russel T Davice makes it all into a dream or an elaborate lie or something, retconning the worst twist in doctor who history. Also, it is moronic to kill all the time lords, since they were brought back we had gotten one story with them, which wasn't the best, to be honest, and then they all get slaughtered again. There is so much potential for great stories to be told in this universe, but Chris Chibnal does nothing but burns it. I want to thank him for ruining something great that I used to enjoy with my mother.

    I'd like to see a True Crime documentary come from what Chinnballs has done to this show.
