What’s it about
Bigger and bolder than ever, this season marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the Thirteenth Doctor – a super-smart force of nature – alongside a team of new and delightful characters.
I’m going to stop beating around the bush and cut to the chase. I. Loved. It. Jodie Whittaker did a superb job. Her initial take on the Doctor has many throw-back personality traits to David Tennent’s Doctor, which I absolutely love. She was clever, she was snippy, she was scatter brained. It was exactly what the Doctor should be.
Now, about the rest of the show. I just want BBC to know that I see what you did. It appears that they’ve taken the most popular characters over the last 10 seasons and reinvented them to inject a little energy and fan support into the show. Graham is a lot like Donna’s grandfather ¨C who was/is a beloved character on the show. What’s-his-face and what’s-her-face remind me of a bit of the Rory and Amy dynamic. I appreciated the Rory/Amy storylines because there was a bit of romance on the show, but without bastardizing the Doctor’s character. (Don’t get me wrong. I love the Doctor and Rose together. But, that’s not supposed to be the point of the show.) Lastly, Jodie’s Doctor is very reminiscent of the 10th Doctor, which is commonly accepted as the best Doctor ever and if you disagree with me, you’re obviously wrong. J/K! (But David really was the best Doctor.)
I have high hopes for this season if they can keep the character development on track. The storyline of this premier episode was ok. At first, I thought the Warrior was going to be the newest iteration of Cyberman. That would have been kinda cool. Instead, we got creepy tooth-face-man. An interesting foe, but unlikely to become a reoccurring monster on the show.
