Doctor Who

Considering that tweeting is predominantly performed by journalists, artists etc. (ie people with a public profile) I can’t imagine there are too many people posting such backwards views. So of the normal people you follow, a) they’d have to be fairly prolific tweeters (most people aren’t), b) actually be interested in Dr Who, a rather niche (these days) sci-fi programme and c) actually angry enough to tweet about it.

I doubt that these comments anywhere near balance those on the liberal side shrieking about “sexism”.

I track twitter very closely and follow a wide spread of individuals…the “outrage” is almost exclusively one-sided…and of those that may find the news of a female lead upsetting, it is such a minute number of individuals as to not even warrant discussion about it.


Actually, the NewStatesman today carries a perfect representation of the liberal commentariat’s weird delight…in assuming other people are annoyed. Quite deranged.



Doctor Who spinoff Class has been axed after just one season.


The BBC1 series will run for 10 weeks rather than the usual 12 or 13, but each programme will last a full hour instead of 45 minutes.


Will the ABC cut the Sunday news back to 30 minutes to accommodate for the full hour of Doctor Who?


Doctor Who’s new companion is Graham, played by 57-year-old Bradley Walsh (The Chase UK and Coronation Street). Former Hollyoaks stars Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole will play Yasmin and Ryan respectively in the new season.
The BBC also confirmed the series will have a 10-week run of 50-minute episodes in mid-2018.


Looks good.

Doctor Who is getting a rebrand with a new logo.


The sequence they used to introduce it was beautiful. Nice to see them continue that idea of the TARDIS interacting with the logo in some way.

I found it a bit funny that the TARDIS appeared to warp through the logo like Star Trek Beyond.

Can’t wait to see the full titles for S11.



First a teaser, now a trailer
