So in today’s post I’m discussing what I thought about Doctor Who Season 11! What has this got to do about Christmas? Well seeing as there’s always a Doctor Who Christmas Special (but not this year *cries*) I thought we could make it fit. I mean, I’m like a MASSIVE Doctor Who fan and I’d love to work on the show in the future so we’re making it fit.
WARNING: THIS POST INVOLVES SPOILERS FOR SERIES 11 OF DOCTOR WHO SO IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE SERIES AND WOULD LIKE TOO, PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS POST!!
My Thoughts On A Female Doctor
So the biggest part of series 11 was definitely that the doctor was a female for the first time. Like most people, I was excited for the fact that there was going to be a female as the doctor but was worried that she wouldn’t be written right. Thankfully I was wrong.
I absolutely loved Jodie as the Doctor. She seemed to combine all the different elements of the previous doctors into one big packet. My favourite part about her was the fact she seemed to have a David Tennant quality to her in the way that she didn’t seem to take things seriously. Her one-liners were amazing and I’m so happy that she’s coming back in the next serious.
My Favourite Episode
This was difficult to pick but I have to go with Rosa!! My favourite Doctor Who episodes are always the ones that go back in time and so Rosa was definitely right up my alley. I loved how it showed a huge part of modern history that many people wouldn’t know about it. Like myself, I feel like many people knew the general story of Rosa Parks but didn’t know the story itself.
I found the story line so interesting and I loved the way that they didn’t interfere with the actual story line. They were involved with the story but allowed Rosa to still keep centre-stage, something that I really appreciated.
My Favourite “Villain”
With every Doctor Who episode, there’s also a villain. There weren’t the traditional villains such as the cybermen and daleks but there were a host of new villains and my favourite monster was… the Pting!!!
I know a lot of people probably wouldn’t agree with that but the pting was just so good. It kind of challenged the idea of the villain being this scary creature instead, the pting was cute and was evil in a sense which wasn’t its fault. I’d love to see more of it in the future Doctor Who episodes.
What I Didn’t Like
I really loved the series but there’s one thing I didn’t really like which was the fact that there wasn’t really an overarching story. With the last few doctors, they’ve had an overall story line like the impossible girl one but this didn’t have one.
I know that the creators did this so that the audience can dip in and out of episodes but I felt that it needed something. I mean, it had the story of Grace but that was kind of it. I would have loved to see a story line throughout but other than that, it was probably my most favourite series.
So that’s the end of today’s post! Did you enjoy this series? Tells your personal thoughts.
