[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.
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.
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.
