It’s the second week of new Doctor Who and one Jodie Whittaker and her Time Friends are wandering an alien planet, fighting killer bedsheets and practicing Venusian aikido, and the news has not let up one jot. New TARDIS, new title sequence, new appearances, the Dreaded Stats return to menace Warren and delight Steven and Chris and a surfeit of tat, videos, Big Finish and more!
Thought this episode was just dull. Attack of the wet blankets…really? They’re able to get away with almost anything creative in doctor who, but that’s their best idea. Jodie is a good actor, but she’s a paint by numbers sort of character and doesn’t stand out at all.
“This world has been made cruel.”: What are the Stenza and how vast is their power?
How could the Doctor have someone/Hepburn’s sunglasses when she found her clothes in a second-hand shop? It’s not like Ten and his coat from Janice Joplin!
The opening credits are awesome! If they had opened episode one with that, I would’ve been in from the jump! Well doon, Mr. Pickles!
Onward! Upward! Allows-Y!
