Some Views of Showrunner: [THAT BASTARD]
Right now, I think [THAT BASTARD] is presiding over the weakest period of Doctor Who. He has a limited grasp of storytelling, and his casting is suspect. Sometimes his decisions and priorities seemed misplaced. He seems to be clueless about what makes a good director. I’m not a big fan of [THAT BASTARD] as a showrunner. While his enthusiasm is keeping the show going, I find his vision of Doctor Who to be the worst of the series.
The second area of disappointment I felt while watching this story was how uneven it was. [THAT BASTARD] opened the season with a magnificent story. The characters were fun, the story was intriguing, and it was truly an example of everything [THAT BASTARD] (and by extension, Doctor Who) does so well. [THAT CRAPPY STORY], also by [THAT BASTARD], lacks everything that [THE OTHER STORY] had. The characters seemed underdeveloped. The pace is uneven. I almost wonder if [THAT BASTARD] even cared.
You don’t need to overtly contradict anything seen on screen to get to the desired goal of [SOME BIG EVENT]. Which makes the scale of
And My favorite
With hindsight, [THAT CRAPPY STORY] was a mixed-up product of some very uncertain and transitional times for the show, and it would have been a miracle if it had turned out any better. It could have conceivably been a lot worse.
