Doctor Who News
September 20th, 2018
Well the press had a sneak preview and report favourably on Jodie’s performance so perhaps it will be okay after all.
Just a crazy thought but that is a fond sad kiss at the end and I have read somewhere that Chibbers as I believe he is being called has said we won’t being seeing much of the Tardis and youngsters today, particularly new viewers, will not identify with an old police box. Like I said crazy thought and can’t be right.
They can’t get rid of the tardis though
Would be sad, the tardis is my favourite part of Doctor Who.
What i meant is that it feels more like Sarah Jane which was aimed at the younger end of the Doctor Who audience and was very well done. I am aware that Doctor Who was created for children, I was 6 when it started. At 61 i really should accept that the BBC are seeking to attract a young audience and if successful this will ensure the programme continues but it would be good to have a Who based adult programme running as well for those of us who have grown up with the series hence my mention of Torchwood however I don’t think the current viewing figures will tempt the BBC to do this.
Don’t like the music, feel it ruins the trailer a bit, but everything else I quite like the look of. Hopefully this Series is good.
A quick word on the pop music in the trailer. Relax! Lot’s of other BBC shows use pop music in trailers that are not used in the show! Eastenders, casualty, bodyguard ect it’s just a trailer.
I don’t get the ‘it looks childish’ comments. What looks childish? Also, remember that most classic era episodes were shown before 6 o’clock, so the show has always been aimed at kids. Just look at season 17! Poor sets, dodgy childish acting from Tom (oh, my arms, my legs, my everything…!) But I was 9 and loved it. It also me me laugh that when the show has done adult thought provoking complicated storylines recently people still complain. I feel sorry for whittaker and chibnall, they really are on a hiding for nothing with some people. I love that it’s ten individual self-contained stories as well. It looks great to me.
I’m trying to keep an open mind now as the new series is fast approaching. I’m looking forward to it, but not getting over excited about it. I think as many people as possible should watch at least the first couple of episodes. We should all give it a chance and not write it off already. The recent trailer has given me more hope that the upcoming series looks spectacular.
I,m just wondering with the series in full swing, there would be no need for a preview as such, whether BBCs ‘Children in Need’ do some sort of exclusive minisode and also as the series would end in December if they save the final episode for Xmas Day, by what they mean by xmas episode this year, since they are all standalones. Just a thought.
