Both parts of the opener were a complete dopamine rush! Story was a little nonsensical but I loved watching them anyways.

The series arc this year looks mental, and makes me unnerved at the same time that they might cock it up. But I'm keeping cautiously optimistic.
Welcome back.

And we're back to our regular programming. Not impressed with tonight's episode.

When did Doctor Who become an outlet for environmental scaremongering? Aside from that the generic mutant monsters are apparently indestructible until right at the end when they're being shot down and apparently having a Tardis no longer allows you to arrive at the right place and time to rescue people.

Haven't seen today's episode, but having grown up in the 80s "environmental scaremongering" and "children's television" for me have always been the same thing.

I just watched the S12 season opener - both parts - and I must agree, this was waaaaay better than what we've seen the past few seasons. Apart from the promise of at least a recurring arc that looks interesting, the episodes in and of themselves were good, and contained a few things I rather liked.

  • The Doctor casually working on the Tardis using an auto lift.
  • Ada Lovelace. Mandatory thumbs-up from a computer scientist here. :)
  • All the take-that's at today's computer/online platform industry. Mandatory thumbs-up from a software engineer here. :)
  • The Inglorious Basterds reference, and also all the totally obvious spy movie shout-outs.
  • And last but not least, the new Master is great. Not as great as John Simm, but not that far behind.

Well,

The Doctor always makes rather poor use of having a time machine, but otherwise the plots would be very unspectacular. In-universe, there's the explanation of the TARDIS having its own mind and taking the Doctor where it thinks he should be.

I had a dream last night that the BBC accidentally broadcast an episode of The Grand Tour in place of the finale for this series, and all the Doctor Who fans were in uproar that Jodie was now suddenly a fat 60-year-old man with pubes for hair...
