    New assistant, I might have to start watching again. Hoping some of the 'anti-woke' fuckers actually explode when they see this.

    One of the tabloids had a story about David Tennant's Doctor and Donna Noble coming back for a once off episode. This is the same Donna Noble who had to have her memories erased, and would die if she remembered the Doctor.

    Maybe this is a good time for me to try to get into it.

    I thought maybe he was the youngest Doctor, but he’s actually the second youngest behind Matt Smith. 27 vs 30. So Matt Smith is about five years younger than I would have guessed and Gatwa is about five years older than I would have guessed.

    I just attempted to explain to my wife why (probably due to nostalgia for the book version I took out from Purley library when an impressionable scamp) The Three Doctors is gold, and got short shrift.

    She then wondered if a human shaped alien was really the Doctor's true form, adopted to make we Earth folk feel more at ease. Her exact words were, "In reality he could look like a chair."

    I decided discretion was the better part of valour and immediately withdrew to the safety of the kitchen.

    Grimes hasn't done his research properly - Gatwa is also a war refugee, was formerly homeless, and has a Scottish accent. He very nearly fills an entire "annoy Tory bigots" bingo card.

    I've reached the point that when it upsets chickeneyed scum like Grimes then I am unequivocally for the casting decision.

    Indeed, he was on the shortlist, along with the "preferred bidder" Ron Moody who was not available

    Hearne made it known he wanted to play the part in character, not as an actor playing the Doctor

    (Which is why Richard Hearne was dropped from the shortlist at the end of the Sixties)

    Not seen anything that Gatwa has done, so that'll be something to look forward to. First doctor that RTD has cast that he hasn't worked with before, so that's another good sign too.

    I might give it a go. Hopefully the stories and scripts will improve now that Russell T Davies is back.

    Doctor Who: Ncuti Gatwa to replace Jodie Whittaker, BBC announces

    My teenage children are very excited by this and it will likely draw them back to the show.

    That was good?

    Maybe a bit rushed for time but actually good.

    Re: New Year's Eve Special

    SPOILERS BELOW
    SPOILERS BELOW


    Loved the Groundhog Day thing, wonderfully executed for the most part....but I don't understand how they didn't "win" once Jeff tricked the two into shooting each other.

    Pacing wise, it kind of ruined the rest of the episode. You go from the highest high, to the "let's work together and smash these mo-fos," to the plan all going wrong.

    Then it got confusing with the plan they made not being a plan aspect.

    The comedy was sharp, (loved the "Ex-Terminated!" line, along with "my friend said 'weirdoes with good hearts are keepers,'") and at least the ending was awesome.

    "Blink" was a properly scary old fashioned Dr Who episode, which was so popular that they felt they had to bring the Weeping Angels back. Then they didn't know what to do with them, in a series a rubbish storylines.

    Were they that terrifying the first time they appeared?


    They didn't kill, just cast people into the past?

    I quite enjoyed it. Quite, quite bonkers and half the time I didn't know what was going on. For the first time ever I'm thinking of rewatching a Chibnall series after it's finished, just to see how it all fits together.

    They've obviously decided to throw the kitchen sink at it, and hopefully something will stick.
