"The best of the series so far" is possible, they might be improving as they go along, at least in his opinion.

That doesn't necessarily mean it's any good, only that it's less bad than the previous ones.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

So far, so meh. If the Beeb can't even do a historical properly when Dr Who's involved... (I think they already blew it on the accents, but after the last one that isn't surprising.)

Oh well, we'll see. Maybe Chibs will surprise me. :roll:

A review of Sunday's episode (from the cook'd and bomb'd forums)

I quite liked this one, it's a decent stab at Who doing Gothic horror, a good old-fashioned dark and stormy haunted house yarn (but with sci-fi trappings, obviously). It's the only time Chibnall's Who has ever been remotely creepy.

The dialogue isn't terrible, it's competently-directed and the plot keeps you guessing.

On the downside, the famous historical supporting characters are thinly sketched - even Byron comes across as bland.

Apart from that and a few other spoilery things which bothered me a bit, it's alright.

Why are they even still making this laughing stock failure?
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I can't imagine.

By the way, have you seen the new intro sequence?

The only logical conclusion I can come to is that they desperately crave your opinion Ian since you proffer it so frequently.

They are obviously very strange people, but you are obviously keeping them going and you don’t even watch it.

the #DoctorWho trailer bbca posted cut out 2 bits from the tv one that I haven't seen online (yaz saying "you need to let us out" and the lone cyberman saying "the ascension shall begin"), so I figured I'd post it if anyone wanted to see :p

The Lone Cyberman may also be the rumoured Cyber Zealot (listen closely to Chibnall towards the end)
