That's all i can say.
Sad state of the Doctor
It takes an existing franchise, loved by fans, and shoves politics down the throats of fans. It is demeaning to men, and plays to the worst hateful stereo types. It does nothing to advance discussion, or entertain. Don’t believe? take your favorite movie, tv show, or ...replace woman for a man and then turn her into both the punchline idiot and evil villain and call it progressive. Then don’t get mad or be labeled hateful.
A great new take on an old character!
Tough to imagine anyone living up to Smith and Tennant, so try looking at this new Doctor with fresh eyes. She might surprise you.

This is the good stuff. Still got the charm. Still the Doctor. The fanboys are just butt hurt.
Really Poor Storylines and Writing, Sad Really
I have no problem with a female Doctor Who whatsoever. Actually, it was a refreshing idea to be frank. The problem lies in the feeling you get as you watch most episodes is that you are watching some low-budget time machine show. Seriously, if you compare some of the content of these episodes to another show that had a female time tripping around in a time machine pod (hint hint), then you will almost see plagiarism in the scripts. Just really seems to take away from the thrill and excitement of what sci-fi defines in the true genre. Again, kudos to the female Doctor, but rotten eggs for the script writers. I just feel super let down in that regard. With that said, I am merely sharing my opinion from the standpoint of a lifelong Doctor Who fan who has watched all seasons, so I hope that my shared thoughts and opinions are relevant for some readers wanting an insight before handing out the money for this season. In my humble opinion, it is one to wait for to broadcast on public arenas rather than buy to view. Your money would be well spent on another decent show and not spent on this one. I hope this helps. Sincerely
So, season 11 is all of a sudden crap because... she’s a women and there are a couple of political jokes? Geez, grow up, people....
The opportunity to portray the doctor as a woman squandered, this latest season poses the greatest downfall of Britain’s longest standing sci-fi series.
Once a formidable, brilliant, human-life-friendly alien, who carefully walked the line between saving mankind (among others..) from peril, and battling horrific foes with fascinating, mysterious and well rounded backstories ,
This iteration features a listless, featureless, intergalactic PETA activist, who’s remarkably unremarkable albeit politically correct racially diverse companions have no distinguishing character or backstory of interest.
The show that once enthralled millions on a (relative..) shoestring budget (e.g. ‘Don’t Blink!’) now fails to deliver any but the shallowest formulas for artificial suspense, with every episode dedicated as a guised protest to lesser newsworthy agendas.
Don’t waste your time watching.
Shame to the new writers who killed a once truly awesome show..

Fails to impress
By Aimee Robidoux
The problem with Chibnall's run with the Doctor isn't that she's a woman, though I do have my opinion on whether it was really necessary to change the gender, it's that Chibnall doesn't understand who the Doctor is. The Doctor is the the Oncoming Storm, but also the best friend you can ever have. He has the biggest capacity for love in the universe, and also the biggest capacity for hate. Unfortunately, the 13th Doctor is lukewarm at best, and doesn't have a unique charm because she's trying to alternatively imitate David Tennant's or Matt Smith's Doctor. Also, I don't like that they practically never left the Earth to visit other worlds, and there was really no over-arching plot thread to connect the adventures together in any meaningful way.
I also don't understand why the Doctor needed to change genders. There have been plenty strong, independent women on the show, and insisting that the Doctor HAS to be a woman for there to be gender equality on the show is rather insulting to the other female characters. Honestly, if the Doctor had changed into a black man, the change in dynamic would've been much more intersting. Imagine if the Doctor, as a black man, in the Rosa Parks episode. I think it would've had a greater impact.
Let’s set the record straight

I don’t write reviews, but as a fan of Dr Who going on 35 years I’m going to say 1 thing to all the trolls. Jodie is a “Doctor” in the finest spirit of the series. So done like her take on the Doctor don’t ruin it for the people just getting to know the series by being bigots.
