Re: Doctor Who

Thanks for the link Paul. Really looking forward to watching the 3 specials in November.

I just hope the new Dr Who's arrival in a Christmas special with Ncuti Gatwa’s Fifteenth Doctor and Millie Gibson’s new companion, Ruby Sunday is as good as I hope. Fingers crossed that they have got the castings right this time.

Re: Doctor Who

The writing was the main issue rather than casting

Re: Doctor Who

Indira Varma cast in the forthcoming series.

https://variety.com/2023/global/glob...es-1235624006/

Her character name is given by the BBC press office as ‘The Duchess’ and according to RTD “ A whole new audience will be hiding behind the settee when the Duchess unleashes her terror.”

The Duchess is an English translation of Rani (which is Hindi). In fact I bet when the show starts she’s not called the Duchess at all; this is probably just a cover so they can announce a star casting without giving away the returning villain. Although it’s not a very good one …

The rumour mill has it that RTD is trying to get a UNIT spinoff into production and that Bonnie Langford will also be in that, if it happens, along with Gemma Redgrave and possibly others who have been seen associated with UNIT since the 2005 revival.

I think if the character of Mel is well written and Langford is well-directed, she could do well. She was sorely let down by lazy production last time round. Early on (in the Terror of the Vervoids segment of the Trial of a Time Lord) she showed a willingness to dive in, investigate, and generally show agency. But as soon as it hit the fan they reverted to having her just scream at the top of her lungs. I’m pretty sure they won’t go in for that now.

Re: Doctor Who

Great stuff. I see UNIT appointed Tony Stark as architect of their new London base. . A subtle nod at all the Disney cash they have to spend these days, I’m sure.

Re: Doctor Who

Should have just kept David Tennant as the Doctor. I'd probably still watch it.

He was one of the best overall, and the best of the more recent bunch.

Sadly they ruined it with the last PC choice.
Having ticked off the "female" box, they have now gone for ticking off the "coloured" box.
I expect the next one will be a "non binary" doctor (assuming it even survives that long).

I will give Gatwa a chance of course, but after the disaster of Whittaker, I wont be so willing to make a long chance, esp if its more dumb woke stories trying to preach to me.

Re: Doctor Who

All 800 episodes of classic Who going on iPlayer from 1 Nov (apart from the first story which they don't have the rights for some arcane reason).
https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/a45558...ayer-episodes/

That's the next couple of years sorted

Never did take to the new stuff post Tennant.

Call me a dinosaur but I just couldn’t get onboard with a female Dr and I make no apologies for it.

I have no issue with the Dr being any ethnicity whatsoever and I would be willing to give Gatwa a watch, but I fear the wokery will be overwhelming. I’ll take my steer from reviews on here.
