Beautiful episode posters designed by Stuart Manning for Radio Times.
I am still on the fence about this new season of Doctor Who. I love Jenna but she can be AWFULLY earnest and Capaldi still looks and acts like my nutty Uncle. This last episode, Listen, felt like Neil Gaiman wrote it. Then someone else got a hold of it and over-wrote it. I liked some things but thought I should have enjoyed it more than I did. I found it a chore to get through.
Have I lost my Doctor Who mojo? I just don't get it anymore like I didn't get it as a child. It was shown on Canadian TV (Tom Baker version) for most of my life. I didn't ever give it a chance to start and get me hooked. It was a show that would get me off the couch to turn the channel like we had to do back in the day. I have also mentioned how it would make me fall asleep on Sunday nights and miss Star Trek on PBS that followed it. It was my personal television nightmare.
Fast forward to 2005, a hot summer evening and the new Doctor Who and my first look at Rose Tyler. I was prepared to believe everything just to watch her every week. I learned and loved as I went along. I navigated the new Doctors and their random companions for years.
I don't know what happened this year. It's too much work to watch Doctor Who. It's making me think too much. Yeh, I shouldn't be thinking this while watching the good Doctor. Right?
What do you think of this season so far?
This is the end...
