Critic reviews for The Woman Who Fell to Earth
I encountered the most terrifying thing Doctor Who has yet thrown at me: boredom. "The Woman Who Fell To Earth" gave us no clever mystery to unravel, no deeper layers to peel back, and little thought seemed to have been given to what any of it meant.
The episode was a pretty solid opening for a Doctor... had an added emotional quality to it.
To see a series with a history this long headed off in such a promising new direction would be thrilling regardless; Whittaker's performance is irresistible to both the critical and Whovian pieces of my mind.
Whittaker's time-traveller was energetic, endlessly curious, warmly witty and fittingly heroic.
In this first outing, Whittaker's Doctor has nailed the basics, and stepped out from the long shadows cast by previous Doctors.
