I started watching Dr. Who on PBS in the 80s. That was my reward if I got good grades and did my chores: Dr. Who for dinner. It was unlike any other program on TV at the time and I fell in love with it. I mean, I was never a tough guy. All that was on TV at the time were these macho guys solving things with two fists. But when I saw Tom Baker’s…[Read more]
To my mind, this was the singularly most solid epsiode of Whittaker’s seasons.
I don’t see it leaving my Top 10 Episodes list any time soon!
It was a sensitive subject, handled well.
The plot was a keenly-written build up of suspense where you were generally invested in the stakes at the end.
The villain was top notch: incapable of direct physical…[Read more]
I know it’s an old thread, but I need to say: another wonderful historical from the Chibnall team.
These have been the strongest, most wonderful episodes by far!
I normally like a few modern and futuristic-space episodes, but there is no question the Historicals for the last two seasons have captured my heart! Well done!
Howdy, all the threads on here are old and I just found the site, I don’t normally look for forums, so I’m just going around commenting on the episodes of the new series I liked for the last few seasons.
This was certainly one of them. I saw stellar performances from the entire cast, a menacing villainous take on the Daleks and some great…[Read more]
Holy Rhino, I LOVE LOVE LOVED this episode!
I loved Ruth’s outfit, I loved the Judoon stuff and I loved the Cameo.

I have to say, I love Chibnall’s historical episodes.
And I’m a big fan of Goran Visjic, so this was a delight to watch.
If I had a criticism, it’s that I wasn’t fond of the space wasp queen. I don’t like that style of make up, it reminds me of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers baddies.
Still, the writing was solid, all the regulars had clear…[Read more]
I quite liked the episode. I did NOT like the finale it lead to, but I thought the episode itself was one of the better ones in the current season.
I loved the crazy cyberman and meeting the Gothic writers and the bizarre puzzle.
All the regulars seemed to have something to do. It was a fun and scary with some wild moments from The Doctor, just…[Read more]
