Doctor Who - series 11

Postby TeresaFoodie » October 7th, 2018, 7:26 pm

Do we have any Whovians amongst us? What did you think of the first episode tonight?

https://www.radiotimes.com/news/2018-10 ... ack-on-tv/

I guess I have always been a fan of the programme that would send us behind the sofa when we were kids. :lol: Not such a fan that I would be bothered if I missed one! I made a point of watching it this evening as I am a big Bradley Walsh fan, but also to see if the decision to bring in a female Doctor for the first time was a good one. Very sceptical at first (why change something if it doesn't need fixing?) but I really thought it worked well.

Anyone agree / disagree?

Spoiler alert.....

Those teeth! :scared: Scarier than any Dalek! :scared: If I had a sofa I would have been behind it! :lol:

We enjoyed it ... a promising beginning ... :D

Jody is great - phew!

Plot owes a bit to Predator? But if you are to steal, then steal well

Is Bradley Walsh reminding anyone else of Bernard Cribbins? That’s a good thing :D

He was reminding me of someone else throughout, but couldn't think who. I reckon you might have nailed it!

I am recording this as I was out last night, but it's only because of Jodie Whitaker and I am expecting to enjoy it from the trailers I have seen so far :tu:

Some folks have said ‘Alf Garnet’ because of the colour in his scarf

Cheers

I was thinking specifically of Cribbins as Donna’s grandad and the David Tennant Doctor’s friend rather than generically. Maybe that’s just how Chibnall writes a grandpa and a decent comic actor plays him. Similar size and hairstyle too.

Don’t think Alf would have fallen for Grace somehow! ;)

Absolutely brilliant :tu: :tu: :tu: Not only Jodie, but the rest of the cast …. totally believable characters with human flaws... shame Bradley's (onscreen) wife had to die … Didn't see the resemblance between Bradley's character and Alf Garnett though, but I get your point Sue ;)

I loved her natural Yorkshire accent, thought it was a great start.
