Honestly…I found this underwhelming and disappointing. It was really nothing more than the new companions eating, and the Doctor’s new powers were more confusing than they were intriguing. The more I hear about the new season, the more I worry Chris Chibnall doesn’t know what he’s doing, and the show will suffer for it. I really hope the ComiCon trailer scheduled for release later this week is better.
The good news is that we finally have an idea of when Thirteen will be crashing onto our screens. The bad news is that it’s not until October.
We also got a glimpse of the new logo today. It’s nice and shiny, but at the same time I feel as if it’s missing something. I’m not sure what that something is yet; I just have the strangest feeling that the logo is missing something.
One thing’s for sure–October will definitely be an interesting month.
Last week the BBC released a picture of what Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor would wear, and I made a mental note to myself to do a post about it. Then I sort of forgot because real life has been attacking me in various ways lately, but then I remembered again! And before I forget again, here’s a picture of her new look.
Jodie Whittaker debuts the Thirteenth Doctor’s new look.
Here’s my take on it–I’m okay with the shirt, suspenders, and trenchcoat; those have very Doctor-y feels to them (although I admit the brighter color scheme is uncomfortably reminiscent of the Sixth Doctor and his amazing technicolor dream coat). But what in the name of jelly babies is up with those pants!? Pants like that never look good on anyone. If you want Whittaker to succeed as the Doctor, don’t make her wear pants that look too small!
I am starting to be very skeptical of this new Doctor, y’all. I want to be excited, but then they dress her in that. Granted, fashion has never been the Doctor’s strong point, but still…how hard would it have been to find normal pants for her?
At least we’ll still get Capaldi looking awesome in the Christmas special.
The wait is finally over…
I can’t say I’m sold on the choice of actor, but I’m going to watch a couple of episodes before passing judgement.
