And RTD is back...
Dr Who makes a lot of money for BBC Worldwide. If it wasn't for that, I get the impression it would have been given a longer rest.This is probably controversial, but would it not have been better to have rested Dr Who again for a while. It is no longer very original (which I admit could change with RTD) but my main problem is it's budget. If you see the SFF output of other channels post-Game of Thrones there is now some great SFF being made for TV. New pay-to-view channels like Apple TV and Disney are leading with their new SFF output. The BBC however, spends most of it's SFF drama budget here (and on His Dark Materials), and, as an adult, those aren't the kind of SFF I really want to see. I want them to commission something a little more original too (and by that, I don't mean a female doctor or a different shaped TARDIS).
I hope he undoes the idiotic retconning nonsense of Chibnall.
Considering I saw him give the most inane speech I've ever seen recently, I'm fairly sure he's now exactly equal to those who took over the show afterwards.Yes, I was delighted to hear this too. Hopefully now we can have a series that doesn't treat its viewers like complete idiots that need absolutely everything explained to them with incessant exposition dialogue.

I reckon it's time to put Doctor Who on the backburner for another generation again.
