Which is the worst Nu Who episode, and why is it the worst?

Fear Her is another one I loathe. The writer has since come out and said that it wasn't written for the older fans and that young kids enjoyed it, but I was seven in 2006 and even I thought it was rubbish. It doesn't ruin the legacy of the show or anything, but it's probably the most boring episode ever made with little to no redeeming qualities to speak of.

At seven you were probably too old to enjoy Fear Her!

The only reason to rewatch it is to work out who's the worst actor out of Tennant, the kid and Huw Edwards playing himself.

Love and Monsters then Fear Her.

Look, I get the point behind bottle episodes and/or Doctor Lite ones from a budgetary/actor time point of view but these were definitely two episodes it would have been better to cut the episode count by one (or more) and put the money into the other episodes.

Wouldn't surprise me if there's some sort of contractual situation that makes this less straightforward than this sounds, though.

The woman who fell to earth.
Kept praying for her to fall off the crane and regenerate into a proper male doctor.
Barrowman.

The best that can be said for it is that the idea behind the Sixth Doctor's unlikeable character wasn't terrible; but the actual presentation was not just terrible, but toxic.
JNT gives us an extreme Doctor, in the way that Rob Liefeld comics, Poochie from the Simpsons, and Mountain Dew Code Red are extreme: A crude version of the good stuff that equates being louder with being more awesome.
The obnoxiousness of the Doctor's personality might have worked better if they hired someone who could actually act, but all the audience got was horrible OTT pantomiming flaring nostrils.

Watched about 10 minutes, wasn't too bad until Nurse Who turned up. She's awful, and I can't take her seriously for a second. Nah, it's not for me anymore, I'm out.

I'd say that many flaws are outweighed by political injects. A badly written episode is pretty harmless, possibly enjoyable. An episode that insults you and/or a large part of the audience with a contra-intellectual basis: that's not just 'bad', it's anti-art. I'd rather watch Love and Monsters.

The Ghost Monument, another dismal failure. At least we can all agree that Jodie Whittaker sucking has nothing to do with her gender. She just sucks.

LOL I'm astonished you're even still watching. The Hive now officially gives so few fucks we can't even be bothered to do individual episode threads anymore. Big Grin
