Doctor Who season 12/38

Postby Kristatos » Mon Dec 02, 2019 8:10 pm

The season premiere is on New Year's Day and is entitled...Spyfall! It looks from the trailer as if Stephen Fry will be playing an M-type character, so this may well be "Doctor Who does Bond". I know the last series had its problems, but hopefully the production team will up their game this time around.

I really, really, really hated the last season but I must admit this was much improved. It moved at a fast clip, looked great, had scary aliens, good special effects, and a fun bonkers twist at the end. Jodi is still a bit bland (IMO) but generally a really good opener.

That reveal was great. It looks like they've taken on board some of the criticisms of the last series and have upped the pace and brought back some classic monsters (Cybermen, Judoon, and does anybody really believe Chibnall when he says not to expect Daleks this season?)

The latest episode was a bit uninspired. It did though have Colin Farrell, the veteran actor from many roles (not the Irishman) and Julia Foster who appeared in the classic Hammer House of Horror set in the Slimming Clinic.

I thought the sermonising at the end was very heavy-handed. I'm not a fan of characters giving long speeches where they spell out the message of this week's episode. It took me back to the '70s, and not in a good way.
