Lovely intentions, but upon deeper inspection, saying little.
September 26, 2018
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.

This season has been marked by change, mostly for the good, though some to the detriment of the overall package. That said, the show's also gotten back to doing what it does best - but with a new flair.

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.

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 19, 2018
The stories are firmly anchored in the character's offbeat sense of humour, although the comedy doesn't always land and Whittaker's breathless zeal can grate sometimes.

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.
December 11, 2018
The fact that this season, the first to star a woman in 55 years, was so interested in how long it takes to effect change -- and how many people have to suffer in the process -- played like a response to the history of the show.
October 22, 2018
Doctor Who is off to a brilliant start.
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.
