Just seen it. The dialogue is as inane and cringe as ever.

"It speaks emoji!" Fuck off, just fuck off.

And "Get in!"

Acquire plague, writing team, and then throw yourselves off the Burj Khalifa.

If Jeremy Clarkson did DW reviews I would expect them to be like this.

CONTEXT TIME

Supposedly Moffat's going to tease the regeneration in the first episode of the series, it's an idea Moffat had for series five back when Tennant was undecided on going

On to something more definite...Chibnall will be writing the first lines for the new Doctor at the end of the Christmas special

There will be a special 50-minute "live lesson" episode streamed to schools across the UK on March 28th at 11AM, and apparently there's going to be another one on April 24th.

I will. I dropped the show twice already--after series 4 (still haven't seen the Tennant specials) and series 6--yet here I am, buying series 9 because it was there and it'd mean I didn't have to stream it, just to catch up.

If I'm still with a show 10 series deep I'm there until it gets cancelled or ends.
Stop fucking buying it, I've got easy access to 1080p rips of the past ten years.

I mean, I don't have them to hand, because it's shit, but still.

The production values look good, but I can't deal with the companion at all. The show should be *moving away* from this postmodern crap, not diving deeper into it.

Plot "synopsis" for the first episode. Bill's mind is opened to a universe that is bigger and more exciting than anything she could possibly imagine.

So exciting it will no doubt have pop culture references as to not leave anyone behind. It broke new ground and I applaud that it's different.

There's a fluff piece about series ten in SFX that preceeds to tell you nothing of any particular note. Also Moff has'nt started writing the christmas special.

Pop culture references. I recognise them and I appreciate that they're putting something in the show that I've seen before.

As Chandler might have said, could this character be more of a tickboxing exercise?

Sadly no. I have no objection to female, black, LGBT characters obviously. The only thing I do have a problem with is when tv producers, writers and actors act like they are so fabulous just because they have a black, LGBT, female character.

Who the fuck cares in this day and age? Red Dwarf's leading man was black, Xena's two leading characters are bisexual women, Charmed all female main cast, and its longest running supporting male character was a black man etc.

When these shows came out (I might add 20 in some cases 30 years ago) it wasn't even mentioned. They just got on with it and that was that!

Fact is representation doesn't matter anymore. It did matter in the 60's when black people and LGBT people were being discriminated against by our society, but in the modern age? No they aren't. Certainly not within the entertainment industry. Hell a lot of entertainers make being gay their act!

Thus obviously whilst I am not saying don't do anything with black, LGBT, female heroes. Do as many as you want and if they are great like Xena I'll love them. However writers/directors/actors should stop doing the following things.

1/ Stop making out they are fucking heroes just because they cast black, female, LGBT characters or out a tv character. It doesn't matter, nobody cares who this fictional character wants to fuck. Only if they are interesting.

2/ Stop demanding that established characters be changed into something they are not just for the sake of this stupid diversity bullshit. Obviously there is no problem with say casting a black man as a character like the Kingpin whose race is utterly irrelevant. However some characters have a particular look where their race is important (its a two way street of course, Blade couldn't be a white guy.) And certainly don't try and make out that sexuality and gender are not important in the identity of just about every character.

3/ Please for the love of God stop highlighting in the show itself when you have a black, LGBT, female character by having them constantly go on about white people, men, straight CIS people etc to show how edgy and progressive you are like in that shit fest of a show Supergirl.

Sadly it appears Bill judging from the actresses comments about representation and Moffat's recent track record is going to be an example of this. I could be wrong and if so great. Still I have a nagging feeling that is what it is going to be.

I never get this bullshit from people like Pearl Mackie of "growing up I never felt my story was told because there wasn't someone with the same skin pigmentation as me on tv." So fucking what? Again I can understand that in the 60's when black people were being told they were inferior, but now?

As a Scots man (who are a minority) I don't give a fuck how many Scottish heroes there are on tv. Why does a person having the same accent or skin pigmentation or sexual preferences mean I can relate to them, particularly when they are a superhero FFS. Its just such a stupid thing to care about in the modern world.

The whole show needs a thorough flushing and new feeding regime.

I do wonder if bringing in top-writers with zero connection to the show might help the creative process a bit? Not hacks, but people who aren't stunted by old continuities, old enemies and the sort of social liberalism that is pro-potato rights, and doesn't care if you know it or not.
