Not really a children's program, more a family oriented program.

For children's programming, you need CBBC and CBeebies - the latter's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream was amazing.
And the reason my daughter's really into Strictly this year: she wants Dr. Ranj from CBeebies to win.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

I’ve decided to give Dr. Who a shot as I lived the actress when she was on Graham Norton. Never managed to get into it before but this one was pretty good.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

And here I was this weekend bored to death because all the series I regularly watch aren't starting the new season yet.

Seems this evening there's Dr. Who on the menu!

Seems to be a big hit among the metropolitian elite/journalists.

Doesn't sound like it would be my cup of tea I'm afraid.
Oh goody, I joined the elite!

It's a children's programme which some adults enjoy watching. Pretty harmless stuff.

It isn't my cup of tea, either, but each to her own.

Even a snowflake like you might enjoy it!
Sounds like PC rubbish. No thanks.

It's entertainment, sweetheart. Just frivolous nonsense to pass the time.

If you want to make it a political issue, that's your problem, snowflake.

No need to give yourself an aneurysm.

New Doctor Who slammed as ‘unrealistic’ after showing working train between Sheffield and Manchester

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

Saw this one as well - awesome.

Also, not linked to the new series, but here are some reviews of Classic Who and Modern Who (from Honest Trailers).

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

Hi,

after a poor start to this series Dr Who is improving. The new Dr is good but the series I think is being let down by the writing and the approach. It just doesn't feel as interesting as it was in last few years. Even though Steven Moffat made some mistakes I feel the series is missing him. Also I think Dr who works best when there is an older actor playing the part. The first Dr Who series I watched was with Jon Pertwee and it got me hooked.


I hope the new series will a bit more science fiction and worthwhile villains. So far all the villains have been incredibly poor.

Have fun
Martin

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

I liked the white supremacist from the future. Well, not liked, but he made a good villain.

They missed a trick though - they should have used this song to play out the episode.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

To me, it looks like Chibnall's getting back to the Doctor's roots - exploring history.

I'm enjoying it overall, love Jodie, the writers could give her less lines explaining how things work ... and I no longer hear the Chase theme when I see Graham!

To be hoped they don't bump into a certain German skier on their travels.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

H'm I wonder why the BBC has a tendency to mark Sheffield for cataclysmic disasters, bearing in
mind it was the location for the Cold War turns nuclear docu-drama, Threads back in the 1980's
which as we all know was scarier than The War Game !!

Maybe it's a hangover from the Thatcher years, when Sheffield was part of the hard left dubbed,
People's Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire, maybe ?

Totally agree, the early Doctor Who adventures were the best.

Just so long as they have no more Trump inspired villains!

Been watching it since the first one where it started as a children's educational program.

In those days there were practically no special effects; limited to noises off stage and strange footprints in the sand.

The scenery was also less than substantial, walls would quiver when doors were closed
