    Your points are well taken.
    That being said, the classic series had some absolute stinkers as well.
    The Twin Dilemma and Time and the Rani spring to mind as obvious examples.

    Do you have a link to said figures?
    Or a chart that you could post?

    Jodie has done a fine job with what she's been given.
    I do not agree with your 'point to make over good storytelling' line, though. Doctor Who has been VERY blatant about making political and social...

    Oh, there's essentially endless ways for it to be done.

    In the novels, when the Time Lords were facing off against The Enemy in that version of the Time War ... well, they went and created...

    What appears to be a clueless and abandoned child, a person with no agency or real ability to effectively protest, taken to a lab and scientifically experimented on essentially endlessly? To the...
  6. Which, of course, was part of the Master's plan...

    Which, of course, was part of the Master's plan all along. He wanted his TARDIS on board the Doctors. It was a deliberate act.

    Getting back on track, 13th's general helplessness really does not...

    The bar may be, as you say, set low but I think he's referring more to narrative messes, rather than quality of stories.

    For example, trying to make the Doctor actually effective again and somehow...

    Roger Delgado is still, by a huge stretch, the best Master of them all.

    Underwhelming is a pretty good description of the 13th Doctor, I think.
    She seems to be very much like the 5th - an incarnation that simply isn't that effective in situations where other versions...
  10. While the writing of that era wasn't the...

    While the writing of that era wasn't the greatest, it was mostly the BBC itself that was keen to see Who end that was the main culprit.
    That being said, that era did include notable stories such as...

    *Looks over at Gallifrey and the Time Lords*

    It's lazy writing going for shock value instead of narrative quality.
  12. One thing I despise in writing is when a creative...

    One thing I despise in writing is when a creative team changes and tears down what was previously built up, just so they they can set up their own vision.
    Vendeitti did it over in Green Lantern (the...

    I've just gone through and deleted a bunch of posts that related to a somewhat ... ghoulish and disappointing branch of discussion.
    Creators are people.
    Like them or not, don't laugh at their...

    The canary cry was used only at the end because it matched Dinah's character arc - overcoming the trauma caused by the death (perceived betrayal) of her mother. She didn't want to use it and was...

    I saw BoP and rather enjoyed it. Certainly superior to other efforts such as Man of Steel, Justice League or BvS. Not quite Wonder Woman level but still entertaining.
    Action scenes were well done...

    This episode was just sort of ... there.
    There were no revelations. No discernible character growth.
    There was a thing, it happened, the TARDIS moved on.
  17. Of course, the thing I'm forced to wonder about...

    Of course, the thing I'm forced to wonder about is...

    as shown in stories such as The Three Doctors, it takes a lot (even by Time Lord standards) of energy and jiggery-pokery for multiple...

    I just finished Fugitive of the Judoon.

    The Judoon still come across as budget/second tier Sontarans. They're an alien that the show is probably best off forgetting about.
    Nice to see Captain...

    I just did a quick clean up of this thread.
    I deleted posts that did not meet the community standards (or quoted such posts).
    Some pretty disappointing stuff was posted, I have to say.

    Goran Visnjic is my pick at the moment.
    I get the feeling it'd get a lot of the mum viewers back, at very least.

    I'm just finding the idea of Adric being called smart ... interesting. Mathematical genius, at least in theory, but severely lacking in common sense and general usefulness.
    Then again, Tegan wasn't...

    I just had to go through and delete some posts.
    Some users chose to use terms that weren't exactly in good taste and were very poorly chosen.
    Said users are now being watched closely and need to...

    The problem is that the story structures are completely different between the 60s and now.
    In the 1960s, for example, it was the norm that one story spanned 4 full episodes and that meant that there...

    Another thought occurred to me regarding the Tesla episode.
    So there's an alien ship that the Doctor wants to get out of Earth's atmosphere and we get the 'hook up the TARDIS and use the tower as a...

    I just finished watching the latest episode - Tesla's Night of Terror.
    It was a marked improvement over the previous episode, though some of the same issues are present.

    There are still too many...
