    watching the video ... 5917 and seeing the image with jw wearing braces, long coat, reminded me that they have not chosen to dress her in a feminine way,
    rather asexual ? this seems the wrong message.
    scanned back to an older, original, femail role model = Purdie ... business like dress, but you had no doubts. eg https://youtu.be/PUIPY80XoAw?t=73

    It just makes me sad when I see things like that. How lonely and miserable someone's life must be to watch this stuff without just bursting out laughing. To sit there festering in your basement convincing yourself that the SJWs are out to get you.

    Is the pre-roll advert not a big enough clue that these misery-merchants are just trying to cash in on unhappy people's desire to apportion blame for their unhappiness anywhere but at themselves?

    His whole channel is full of that sort of crap:

    One of his earliest videos is "Star Wars: The Force Awakens is feminist propaganda"

    Time Lord is the name of the species.
    Titular Time Lord sounds and works just fine!!

    I just assumed she's a heavy smoker!

    It's blatantly what they're doing, and have been ever since 'The Doctor's Assistant' became 'The Companions'. It's gotten worse as the series has gone on, with Rose and Martha getting all romantic, then the whole story with Rory and Amy. Now we have the whole Team Tardis to deal with, instead of tales about.... oh, what was the name again..... Ah yes, Doctor WHO.

    Do we?
    I mean, really?
    Do we really?
    I mean, and be honest here, do we REALLY live in a multicultural world?

    We do?
    Right..... OK, then...... so why do we need to be told about it, as if it's news to us and needs wider publicising? Seriously, the BBC look so far behind the trend on this, I half expect them to start the Safety Dance or the Macarena!

    Is it my imagination but the latest series of Dr Who seems to be total garbage.

    This has nothing to do with having a woman in the title role but more to do with really bad script writing.

    Personally, I wouldn't say it was garbage; but it hasn't been what I'd call good. For me, it's been OK. Something to watch on a Sunday evening.

    No story arcs ie Bad Wolf, no screen presence from the Doctor, no memorable baddies and no great speeches from the Doc.

    Poor start for the new Doctor.

    Bad Wolf could barely be described as a story arc, it was a series of one off episodes with a few easter eggs tying it into the final episode. A story arc has to have a story that arc over multiple episodes. Doctor Who the story was all in the final episode.

    Because it's a New Year special instead.

    Apparently they ran out of ideas for Christmas stories .

    For sure.

    As soon as I saw the title I knew they'd be in it .

    The Rotten Tomatoes audience score for season 11 is down to just 28%. RIP Doctor Who. It looks like the original lore was right; the Doctor can only regenerate 12 times. I'm not sure what this 13th incarnation is but it's not the Doctor.

    Rotten tomatoes means nothing .

    Viewing figures were up loads compared to previous years.

    No,no,no. You don't understand.

    Ratings don't matter. People on the internet who've whinged about every aspect of Doctor Who for the past 5 years didn't like it, it's time to shut this **** down.

    Oh, it's still the Doctor all right.

    Don't be taken in by the angry incels bombarding Rotten Tomatoes to bring down the score. Last time I looked the actual audience figures for this season were well above that for Capaldi's final season (this isn't a slur on Capaldi as I liked him as the Doctor and enjoyed season 10).

    In fact let me save you the trouble of Googling the audience numbers - you can see them for yourself here:

    http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/doctor-who-series-10-2017-uk-ratings-accumulator-84045.htm

    Jodie is pulling in literally millions more viewers with the least watched episodes from season 11 being right up there with the most watched episodes from season 10.

    Indeed. I had a conversation the other day with someone who was telling me how rubbish this season is and how it has been ruined by having a female Doctor etc. However, as they haven't had a good word to say about any season of Doctor Who since the reboot (they don't appear to have ever moved on from Jon Pertwee) I tend to take their views with a dimensionally transcendental pinch of salt.

    Angry internet trolls bringing down scores mean nothing .viewing figures are what broadcasters look for when renewing shows .they are what matters .

    Jodie has been great so far for me and I look forward to Resolution of the Dalek on New Year's Day .
