Does he have any grown up children? Good to see Stephen Fry, not sure about Lenny Henry, didn't he already appear in the original series?

Am I an evil misogynist for already wondering who the next Doctor will be?

Also I need a "previous Doctors come to the rescue" ep so Capaldi can come back. AND WHERE IS CLARA'S TARDIS?

I hope Chibnall isn't writing as many episodes this series.

Everyone always thinks about who THE NEXT DOCTOR will be, like how people prefer talking about THE NEXT BOND to actually watching Bond films.

I started watching season 11 again in preparation. Since PlutoTV has started streaming all the classic eps on their own DW channel, I've gained a little perspective on how Jodie's Doctor fits within the "spectrum of Doctors", so I get the shift in tone/personality a little more now. Since this is a less flamboyant, less strutting Doctor, it made sense to make up for it with more companions, and higher production values for eye candy.

But at some point Jodie needs to play something other than being wide-eyed and amazed at everything she encounters. She needs to be more commanding and not be afraid to be a stone cold bitch if the situation calls for it. She's The Doctor, not The Nurse.

This is the Word of the Eggs.

She doesn't write the show. Chibnall seemed scared to write any scenes where she was in conflict or had to be a "stone cold bitch" last season.

I agree, it's up to the writers to create an overall arc in which she can change. But she and the directors have to allow her to make some choices and line readings that go beyond "perky Sheffield lass who's just happy to be here". That's how a character evolves. JUST LIKE JOEY.

It might be the "biggest" two-parter in terms of money spent on it and number of locations filmed in, but that doesn't mean it's the biggest in terms of things that are actually important.

I laughed at describing Stephen Fry as a "The Hobbit" star. That's like the five hundredth thing you'd think of if someone mentioned him to you. (Though I guess it's because it is the "biggest" thing he's been in.)
