I have respect for Steven Moffatt's sublime stint and I loved both Tennant and Capaldi and their clevernesses, but I think new writer Chris Chibnall has, by hauling ass back to basics, given us all a timely, hugely refreshing, gasp of air.
Along with a new Doctor, indeed, we have a new showrunner, with Chris Chibnall having taken over from Steven Moffat. The tone was still recognisably New Whovian...but everything still felt new and light.
[Whittaker] adds a sense of melancholy to the Doctor that comes through in her rare moments of softness and counsel; I expect it will be her own contribution to the tapestry of the Doctor Who universe.
I'm now too old for the Time Lord's adventures; a great weariness came upon me as she explained her sonic screwdriver to her charisma-free new pals... But still, I couldn't be more glad that the Doctor is at last a girl.
While this first adventure for Ryan, Graham, and Yaz is lacking in the fun sci-fi adventure department, the dynamics of the characters work well so far, and the Doctor herself is already on her way to joining the ranks of fantastic Doctors.
