With boundless energy the new doctor manages to be funny, heroic, confused and dynamic by turn.
October 11, 2018
[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.

Chibnall and Whittaker look like they've got a perfectly good handle on this one. We can't wait to see what they add to this character's long and colorful history.

The woman who fell to earth has very much landed on her feet.
October 12, 2018
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.
October 8, 2018
It's one thing to carry the pressure (and "political correctness gone mad" flak) of being the first female Doctor, another to look natural in the role within minutes.

In short, it's the same old, brand new Doctor Who, and even if it's not what you want, it's exactly what we need. Wonderful stuff.
October 8, 2018
[Whittaker] nails the character and immediately re-energizes a series that was in danger of disappearing into its own black hole.

Jodie Whittaker's Doctoral debut sticks the landing.

Whittaker's Doctor has arrived. She's not just made her mark, as each Doctor does, but she's raised the bar. And she's brilliant, just brilliant.
October 10, 2018
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.

Whittaker is more winning than I could have ever imagined - her Doctor is loose and lively, cheeky and irreverent, sporting a deliciously homey Yorkshire brogue that will be catnip for anyone entranced by a Midlands accent.
October 8, 2018
It's no easy feat to imbue a series as established Doctor Who with a new energy while still retaining its unique charm, but that's exactly what showrunner Chris Chibnall and his team pull off.
September 28, 2018
Frankly, from the very first frame of the episode this feels like a different sort of Who.
October 7, 2018
Doctor Who returns, and at the same time, reinvents itself in a way never before seen. The 13th regeneration is much more than a pretty female face, although its start is imperfect.

September 27, 2018
Whittaker is a breath of fresh air: a talented, emotionally engaged actress who brings warmth and humanity to a show that was largely in danger of disappearing up its own black hole.

Fans who have waited years or even decades to see themselves in a certain time-traveling alien will finally get their wish
October 15, 2018
Happily, they made it work, creating a properly modern Doctor without losing the madcap energy and behind-the-sofa shocks that form the show's two Gallifreyan-style hearts.
October 5, 2018
A Doctor for our age.

It's the show it's always been, only now there's better representation (there's still work to be done, but this is a much-needed step in the right direction) and fewer Daleks.
