the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 16:42 (four years ago) link

So are we looking forward to this? I'm liking the new-broom approach to the casting/costume, and much as I enjoyed the last series (a lot), the fact that it ended with two incarnations of the Master in a Cybermen origins story that culminated in a surprise appearance from the Hartnell Doctor indicates a freshen up might be in order.

But jesus, Chibnall's previous Doctor Who sits on a spectrum of bland to poor - some of the most unmemorable episodes in recent memory. Or am I being pessimistic?

(cheeky plug: we review Chibnall's Silurian two-parter on the most recent edition of my Doctor Who podcast - http://www.illexplainlater.com/post/166422653503/episode-27-land-of-make-believe - where we discussed some of this stuff...)

v much looking forward to seeing how jodie whittaker plays it, v much apprehensive about everything else

drinkmaster sealcup at yr service (bizarro gazzara), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:04 (four years ago) link

The whole show has been feeling very tired and in need of a new injection of ideas for quite some time now. On the other hand I've never seen Broadchurch and most of the episodes Chibnall had written have felt like mid-series filler so I dunno if he's the guy to provide them.

Matt DC, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:10 (four years ago) link

The incredibly shoddy photoshopped TARDIS behind Whitaker's Mork cosplay in the promo photo sets the tone for exactly the level of quality I expect from ol' Chinballs.

Boring writer doesn't neccessariy mean boring showrunner, I'm hoping.

chap, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:20 (four years ago) link

I am excited the same way I am excited for any new actor who takes on the role of the Doctor. I'm also looking forward to the Doctor-companion interaction and which parts will change and which parts will stay the same. I also enjoyed most of Chibnall's Who stories and think his worst work appeared in the first season of Torchwood.

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:22 (four years ago) link

I did read somewhere that he was planning to have more season-long storylines, which is the opposite direction things should be going in imo. A series of only very loosely connected, straighforward one and two parters each written by a different good writer would do the job fine.

chap, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:26 (four years ago) link

I get that on the one hand, but on the other hand the current Golden Age of Television is really strong on bingeable serialized stories that last the whole season, plus his biggest critical praise came from doing that with Broadchurch.

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:29 (four years ago) link

I think the problem with recent Doctor Who arcs is that they're neither fish nor fowl - an awkward mix of 'arc episodes' and deliberately less important standalones that fails to really build to any sort of dramatic crescendo or are rushed at the final stages. I'd be fine with either 10 completely discrete episodes or a single 10-part story (an updated spin on The Daleks' Masterplan would suit me very nicely).

bamboohouses, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:36 (four years ago) link

I think RTD's first season was the only to really pull off its "arc" - unless you count the Riversong episodes as a single story (and why not - at least "Wedding..." finally gave it a satisfying ending).

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:49 (four years ago) link

S1 barely had an arc, just some flash frames of graffiti shot later on and inserted into episodes months after they'd been written

S5 had a fantastic, coherent, satisfyingly complicated plot arc (only undermined by Rory's prop badge), and the first two Capaldi years together pulled off successful parallel character arcs

shackling the masses with plastic-wrapped snack picks (sic), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:57 (four years ago) link

TBH I'd be happy to settle for the show being fun again and it hasn't felt like that for ages.

Maybe I read too many Virgin/BBC novels but I can't point at a single season of the reboot that I would say is anti-fun, including Tennant's first season (which is the only one I haven't seen every episode of despite owning multiple copies of it)

xp ulysses you crazy, Matt Smith's first season was the best yet.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:05 (four years ago) link

i agree, first matt smith season is one of the most classic

I demand much less from Who then all of you. I'm happy if it's marginally entertaining which it consistently is. I don't care for her suspenders, but I like her coat, and I think she'll be an interesting doctor. I'm more concerned with three full time companions; that pushes this too far into an ensemble which makes me wonder if they will let her carry the show or not.

akm, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:09 (four years ago) link

the ONE thing I did grow tired of under Moffatt was the manic pace of every episode though. LIke, 1000 things would happen in some of those smith episodes and they just got impossible to follow. Broadchurch, like it or hate it, has a much more staid pace that I hope he brings to the show.

akm, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:24 (four years ago) link

I look at it as back to basics with the caveat that the show has often struggled to juggle story arcs for the Doctor and three full-time companions (the most notorious example I can remember being "Kinda", where Nyssa spends the entire story napping in the TARDIS and pops up at the end asking "hey, did I miss anything?")

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:27 (four years ago) link

I 100% know Bradley from The Chase (not the Doctor Who story) - what is he like when not being really annoyingly anti-intellectual all the time?

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 November 2017 21:17 (four years ago) link

in cases like this (like with james corden, when he appeared on Who) I'm glad I'm not english and don't have the full context of how annoying this person is supposed to be (I liked corden's turn on who a lot. now that he's inflicted on the US with his own show, I see why people are tired of him though)

re chibnall: i'm excited that it's essentially a minor ~reboot~ (god knows this show needs it) but chibnall's writing has never done anything for me. cyberwoman was one of the worst things that has ever happened, although to be fair it was a really long time ago.

I worry that being Bradley Walsh gameshow host who's never off the telly might overshadow his acting ability.

"Cyberwoman" was terrible but "Exit Wounds", "Countrycide" and, to a lesser degree, "Fragments" were great. I also think his weakest Who story is "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" which I still enjoyed a lot because of how silly it was.

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Friday, 10 November 2017 16:28 (four years ago) link

He was chirpy never-off-the-telly gameshow host while he was doing Law & Order UK and it didn't seem to have much of an impact on him then.

dan otm, chibnall's writing didn't stay at "cyberwoman" level thank god. also yeah, it feels wrong bagging "dinosaurs" because it was only ever meant to be the thing that it was. moffat/the bbc clearly wanted silly escapist quasi-blockbusters and that's what the writers delivered.

suspenders are a 'little' costumey and it felt a bit like we were past costumey with capaldi, but I like her coat alot and I'm not sure what people have against culottes, I think they are cute on women.

akm, Saturday, 11 November 2017 04:41 (four years ago) link

suspenders are great on those who are shaped to accomodate them and horrific for everyone else, any suspender backlash is just indicative of the 90% of the population who can't wear them or who tried and failed
if you can pull them off (and Jodi Whittaker definitely can) I say put the pedal to the metal and go for it

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 7 December 2021 07:06 (six months ago) link

not really genocide if you feel bad about it?
& also not if the parents are known to be alive? I thought the babies were airlifted out and it was just the project manager who got messed up. Plus they were cannibalised from human so maybe that makes it ok.

I thought the lupari were individually murdered by the Sontarans, really how shitty .

Come a long way since Baker couldn't stem the rise of the arch genociders at initial point since it would be genocide innit?

genocide region in france was the better citation I think.

Stevolende, Tuesday, 7 December 2021 17:04 (six months ago) link

When they mentioned the genocide of the Lupari, I assumed that, considering that the previous scene had Swarm pressing play and rewind on the Doctor's death, it'd get reversed by the end. Not the case!

Like Dan + Yas + Jericho Gibbs, Bel + Vinder + Karvanista seemed to be another spin-off being set up - again I'd rather watch it than the next three specials.

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 8 December 2021 18:14 (six months ago) link

yeah all of that otm

so the finale was certainly the worst episode of the season AND YET it wasn't quite as bad as i expected. i didn't mind it! like the rest of the season, it sucked, and was also kind of fun and fine at the same time.

I VERY MUCH DID NOT LIKE the odd way jodie pronounced "cornershop" in front of yaz

lemmy incaution (emsworth), Saturday, 1 January 2022 22:00 (five months ago) link

i thought it was ok. probably chibnall's best written episode as solo writer. at least it wasn't a globe-trotting episode where every location looked suspiciously like somewhere cheap in britain.

adam t. (abanana), Saturday, 1 January 2022 22:40 (five months ago) link

streaming service here suggested Time of the Doctor as a follow-up watch, for me there was more charm and invention in that episode’s pre-credit sequence than in the entire Chibnall era - and I don’t even remember that ep as a particular highlight!

While not brilliant, if this had been the general standard of the Chibnall years I would have been a lot happier.

Daleks were huge arseholes in this - I thought it was good! Agree it was Chibnall’s best solo script, albeit with the usual asterisks.

There’s a reason Davies and Moffat never went full Saward with mean-spirited violence but i don’t mind it occasionally - I imagine this was scarier than usual for the kids, so job done.

I liked the non-belaboured covid reference too (I’m guessing it was a Covid reference) - Aisling Bee’s “I’m so tired” moment was a really good bit.

Chuck_Tatum, Monday, 3 January 2022 21:32 (five months ago) link

I liked this a lot more than I was expecting to. I was amazed that it a) largely made sense, and b) had characters (even if they were Daleks) call the Doctor out for genocide

I also liked that they pulled the Yaz subtext out into the open and that the Doctor seems hellbent on stuffing it back into the closet; I suspect this mindless papering over Yaz's questions/protestations is going to lead to her regeneration somehow (or at least I would if this was being run by Davies or Moffatt; with Chibnall, it's just as likely that the Doctor will trip over her sonic and break her neck falling against the TARDIS console)

castanuts (DJP), Monday, 3 January 2022 21:36 (five months ago) link

fwiw I went to DOCTOR WHO: TIME FRACTURE yesterday with my kids and it was very good fun although it had a rubbish anticlimactic ending that made no sense HOWEVER as we know time is non-linear, and, like, timey-wimey so no bigs. chib's contract says he gets sign-off on all ancillary IP so i do blame him. i'm guessing the good bits were mainly the actual theatre company that produced it.

they have an amazing number of props and set detail that you can just wander and explore at your leisure after the show including K-9, and that actual timey wimey wobbulator thing that looks like a red boom box and 'goes PING when there's.. stuff' - a line i loved at the time but which now reminds me of all the worst parts of whittaker's doctor. she pops up on screens from time to time saying things like 'close one eh?? don't worry - you've got this!' and it's just such crap

Tracer Hand, Monday, 3 January 2022 22:00 (five months ago) link

I liked the Eve of the Daleks tbh, despite the world's worst rasta accent - by dialling the comedians up to 50% of the cast, it shows that they can be well deployed if they're Irish good. Also no mentions of Gallifrey, and a Dalek taking the doctor to task for genocide.

The poster I'm seeing around for yesterday looks like it should be a pantomime.
Really not hot on Danny and still wondering what the convincing argument for him dressing like a pantomime pirate was. & if swimming in pirate boots is an inherently bad choice . Likely to add weight and things.
Actually seeing him in that overly white shirt had me wondering about laundering things on 17th/18th century ships so the state of a navy uniform over that time. Think things might wind up a tad grubby.

Did like the look of the pirate ship but not remotely convinced of practicality. Is my suspension of disbelief suspended.
