I really love Whittaker in the role, but Chibnell sucks. These have been the most bland Doctor Who adventures since it was brought back. It's a shame Whittaker didn't get better material to work with. My fear is that BBC and others will forever look at this and say a woman can't be the Doctor ever again.

I liked Whittaker in the role though I always though it was a mistake to not have her keep the Capaldi outfit. She looked so damn good in that. I thought the companions were fine as well if not the most interesting. I'm actually indifferent on Chibnall. I didn't hate anything in particular, but nothing stood out at too well either. The previous showrunners did a better job making me care, be it love or hate, when it came to characters and story.

I liked Whitaker fine.

Not many of the stories stick out for me, but it's been like that since they restarted with Ecclestone.

Doubt they'll go with an older Doctor, but I'd still love to see Sean Pertwee give his dad's ruffles a go.

I don't have much of an opinion on who they cast to replace Whittaker or whether it's a man or a woman, but I hope the new showrunner retcons the plot twist from last season that retconned the Dr. as an alien who was somehow had her regeneration powers harvested so they could be transplanted into an entire civilization (how would that even work?).  I'm guessing the hardcore fanbase hates it because it tampers heavily with established canon.  My main compliant is that it's a plot twist for the sake of a plot twist and seems like something that will obviously need to be undone by the next showrunner in order tell future Who stories involving Gallifrey, the Daleks, etc.

 

Retconning usually leads to more fuckery. It’s better when DOCTOR WHO writers ignore anything that didn’t work for them and just not worry about it.

Whittaker was really done a disservice by the writing and Chinball's lack of story, and his wanting to avoid any classic rogues in the first season.  I'm also someone who things Tenant's run was overrated and thought Capaldi was the best nuWho Doctor.

Neil Gaiman has already ruled himself out for being the new showrunner. Besides already being busy with Sandman, Good Omens season 2, and Anansi Boys, he'd rather just write an episode rather than run it all.
