Doctor Who | Returning Showrunner

(1/4) > >>

Ren:
I was very shocked to Russell T Davies is returning as Doctor Who showrunner for 2023. I am so hyped for it.

What are all of your thoughts about the BBC's choice for bringing back a previous showrunner?

Hmm…. He got off to a good start but things tailed off for me towards end of David tenant. He made tenants doctor a total dick head especially in waters of Mars and I ended up wishing they’d get the change to Matt smith over with.  By contrast, I felt that Moffat started out crap making his first series seem overly childish and too much repetition in the second series but got better. I can’t figure out what to make of whatever this current guy is doing… whatever happens happens I suppose. I could either find it really great or totally crap. Only time and relative dimensions in space can tell

I am very very happy about it. Chibbs the idiot ruined Who for me and a majority of the fan base hates him. Russle made some of the best of Who and while I don't think it will outdo itself I think it will be a huge upgrade from the crap that was season 13 and after.

60th anniversary in 2 years. Did you get to see the 50th anniversary special when it was first released to cinemas?

Series 13 hasn't even released yet lol but I think you meant from Series 11 onwards. The only real problem with Chris Chibnall's era of Doctor Who is his excruciatingly painful shit writing, and maybe some actor decisions. Ryan Sinclair (a previous companion to the 13th Doctor) really didn't have much to him. All it was, his dyspraxia and his terrible relationship with his father, of which was pretty much sorted out after one series. He really wasn't given any character development. Yazmin Khan hasn't either but I hope it's built on in the upcoming series that should be released before the end of the year.
