Jodie Whittaker is quite a good Doctor, her cheerful Northern accent and bouncy enthusiasm bringing an infectious energy to the whole Time Lord malarkey.

It was from the off just big blithering fun, as were the best of the Bond movies on which this two-parter is based:.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 12

    I hoped the show runners would learn from the last series mistakes and perhaps series 12 would get better. It's just as dreadful and lifeless as last year. Might be time to give the series a break and come back in a few years with new writers and actors.

    This show needs more love.

    Despite the disappointing Orphan 55, Doctor Who S12 has so far been a wonderful return to form after the mixed S11. Although the scripts still suffer from occasional weird moments and solutions and the political messaging is occasionally still a bit on the nose (looking at you Orphan 55), I find that it can be easily overlooked simply on the basis of how enjoyable Jodie Whittaker is to watch. It's a shame that so many people seem so hell bent on tearing it down but don't let that discourage you from watching a genuinely fun and exciting TV show.

    Improving. But not enough. Stories are dull this year, but it remains watchable

    Better than series 11 so far. A bit darker. I think season 11 lacked "Dr Whoiness" but season 12 defo an improvement.

    The idea is great, but the script, the dialogs just suck. The charm of the doctor has disappeared, the feature of these series is only one doctor-a woman. That is all. But there is no charm of the doctor, all his principles have disappeared somewhere. The writers should be fired immediately, and the Director should be fired as well.

    This show has turned into the magic school bus. Barf!

    Really disappointed with this season. The writers took the wrong direction for this show. Doctor who is now a stand alone episodes show... There s no continuity, the doctor just stumble into differents situations and fix it. There s no character developpement. the fam is just used as plot device, nothing is going on with them and we don't care about them at all. We don't even understant how they can stand each others. Doctor who lost everything that made it magical. The doctor was a person that inspired other people, always showing what's good and beautiful about people. Now, the doctor is just running between action scenes and doing something silly and not coherent to fix the situation. It's too bad because jodi whittaker is a great actrice and have the sensibility to play one of the greatest doctor we could have seen. Also the soundtrack is now bad and forgettable. Doctor who is a show that made me cry because how beautiful it was. Everything was perfectly used (writing, music, acting, cinematography,ect...). I remember one scene that completely took me by surprise in particular. It was the Ood's scene with the song of captivity. I completely lost it when i watched it for the first time. Now, i just don't feel anything watching this season. Nothing important is happening, nothing is magical, the characters are not interesting and there's no plot at all. Just a waste...

    Improvement on the previous episode but that bar was so low it was negligible. The writing is still badly paced and lacking in quality so it's difficult to tell just how bad or good the main actors are in their roles. Fingers crossed the next episode will improve further.

    The story lacked a coherent story. Constantly.
