I caught up with Christmas TV as I was away and loved the first 2 episodes and watched them back to back then into episode 3 and I was bored - it was too loud and a hopeless script like a replay of 1970/80s Blakes 7

Will give next weeks a go but if it is like last Sunday will turn off and attend to my ironing as thats more fun

Ditto. She's not clicking with me.

I didn't like Peter Capaldi's Doctor either, but I was a fan of Moffat's scripts and stories (so that made up for it).

Other Doctors have talked to themselves so that's not an issue. It's just her acting doesn't work for me. It feels forced. Her enthusiasm and quirkiness seems artificial - I notice that she's acting (which shouldn't be the case).

If the scripts were good then I could overlook it. But this week's wasn't up to much either.

I've been a Dr Who fan my whole life, but I just don't enjoy it now.

The scripts are not always great - a few exceptions perhaps - but often it seems like trying to be a history lesson as much as anything.

And I don't like Jodie's doctor, and I don't like any of the companions. It's all just far too wooden. Sadly, the casting has ruined it. Imagine how good it could have been if someone like Alex Kingston (who was River Song) was the Dr?

To be fair, Doctor Who started as a sort of sci-fi history lesson. It was supposed to be an educational programme using time travel as a means to explore history and science. I think Chris Chibnall has purposefully guided the current DW more towards it's original premise.

BTW. that's not necessarily a good or bad thing; just because it's a "history lesson" doesn't itself make it good or bad.

Its not a fun show any more. Its kind of lost its mojo. I want to like the current incarnation but I just dont get Jodies version. That said, I never got Capaldi either so my interest has been on the wain for a while.

Theres only so many ways the Daleks can come back, the Master/Missy resurrects, Cybermen etc etc...all a bit tired and flat

And I dont need to know Rosa Parks, Nicolei Tesla, <insert famous transatlantic person here> have the Doctor and fam to thank for their place in history. The Doctor is his/her best when dealing with baddies and ethical dilemmas.

Time to rest it for a few years. Bring it back once interest has built up.

I really, really want to like the new episodes, but I'm just not enjoying them. I have no problem with Jodie Whittaker, but the writing and the companions are just not working for me. There's no chemistry between the cast. Last season almost had me switching off, but as a long time fan, I persevered. The 2 part New Year episodes were OK, and gave me a glimmer of hope, but then episode 3 slid right back down the hill again.
