Just ask.

Can do if you wouldn't mind if not to much bother .

Even tho its a bit hit and miss since its return and I know shows change when they become more modern, just because it got a bigger budget doesn't mean it going to be better , doesn't seem to have the same appeal and charm as the original doctor who , they need to get rid of this preaching and PC bollocks and go back to old school, and find someone who a long life dedicated fan of the original otherwise its going to lose so many viewers it's going to get cancelled again, it would be a shame when it has so much potential but being held back by the BBC pricks.
And need to bring it back to life and be doctor who again and not doctor poo because it a load of sh!t.

I can't believe how Graham got treated by the Doctor at the end of the most recent episode.

THIS is how its done. The Doctor and Victoria in Tomb of the Cybermen. A beautiful moment.

I was trying to defend the new doctor and be optimistic but it seems the new Doctor Who is taking the place of 70's public info films but without the scares.

Yeah, after a decent start (Genuinely enjoyed the first two episodes) we had the first long winded lecture in Orphan 55 then Tesla was a bit of a return to form, since then they've ruined every episode* with lecturing.

*Although the Judoon episode wasn't ruined by lecturing it was ruined by Chibnall deciding to reinvent the wheel

That's exactly how i feel about this new series.
I really hope the remaining episodes pick up a bit.

The BBC after all is a public information (propoganda) corporation. Did you ever see or possibly read 1984? It's a cracking film 1984.

At least the pennies dropped. Hopefully.

It's been a joy reading this thread over the last couple wks. It's going to be a greater joy when this abomination is put to rest. The BBC, Chibnall and his team of "soap writers" need to be blasted off to Uranus. It's insulting to call this steaming pile of poo Dr Who. All the BBC does is push the social change messaging continually, and all people do is switch off. The BBC is totally committed to screwing over a series that actually was a jewel in the crown of BBC TV programming. There's alot of people in denial that still want Dr Who back to the way it was before Moffat started pushing the diversity and inclusion with a female Master added into the mix ( a taster of things to come), but now it's been completely buggered. And now there's another series to come. I'll just sit back and enjoy the decent into more madness. All thanks to Auntie Beeb and the hack writer known as Chibnall. I just pray that you have the stomach to bare this vile insult to Doctor Who from the past Dem.
