Which is odd as that's the one thing he's good at.

Don't get my hopes up. I don't want them to come crashing down again.
The Doctor died with Capaldi. The Chibnall era is non-canon.

There are no Doctors before William Hartnell.

Without respect, we reject.

Left-wing Twitter is up in arms about the article. Personally, I don't think the BBC should be left-wing, nor right-wing. It should have a crack at both sides. A "politically neutral" broadcaster.

You can't really go wrong with that. Also prevents a right-wing version of Doctor Who. Not sure what that would look like.

I don't recall the BBC being heavily into protecting workers' rigths and against the power of large corporations, so maybe those who haven't studied politics could stop calling it left-wing.

A right-wing version of Dr Who would look like......."The Daleks", I guess.

Since the BBC is a state-funded corporation, I think it is therefore satisfactory to the left.

Why? Are you confusing economic issues (left vs right) with social ones (authoritarian vs libertarian) ? As a left-leaning libertarian (or anarcho-red herring, as we're sometimes known) I feel you may need to educate yourself further on exactly what politics is about.

We seem to have veered off into politics here. Let's please end this particular line of discussion now and get back to the spoilers. Thanks kindly.

In some news pertaining to the show, Charlotte Moore, who hired Chibnall and advocated for a female Doctor, was promoted to Chief Content Officer at the BBC today.

That’s nice for her if I knew or cared what that position is.

Any gossip about the next series?

Did they finishing filming stuff before COVID struck? It seems so long ago now it’s hard to remember.

Mandip Gill confirmed everything was shot for the special before the pandemic became more widespread

As for Charotte Moore's role going forward at the BBC...it's a very vital and important one that you shouldn't overlook out of supposed ignorance of the position, she's now responsible for the BBC's television and radio output, as well as being in charge of commissioning children and educational programmes.

Ignorance is sort of true, but as I don’t live in the UK it’s all a bit meaningless to me. We probably don’t get half of the BBC’s output here. We have the BBC First Channel on pay TV, but it always seems to be showing Call the Midwife, Death in Paradise or Father Brown.

So the special’s done, but nothing for the next series? That will give Chibnall ample time to get his scripts in then?

It’s ironic that COVID has caused so many people to lose their jobs, but for some people it’s saved theirs.

Production is supposed to start sometime this month, but so far we've heard nothing.

Is he planning to film it in New Zealand, then? Otherwise social distancing may be a bit of a problem (that's always assuming we've got the current situation under control...)
