If series 11 was controversial, then series 12 was downright divisive. In my opinion, this series takes everything that made the previous series what it was – including the good and the bad. The highs are generally higher, but they come alongside one or two pretty gruelling lows (or one episode in particular).
But overall, the series is still Doctor Who, and has all the stuff that makes the show great. Jodie Whittaker still kills it in the role, and the side characters get a bit more development, before we say goodbye to two of them. It’s an enjoyable series that’s been overshadowed by a controversial series finale. But we’ll get to that.

Series 11 is a controversial series of the show. It was the first (proper) appearance of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, her trio of companions, and Chris Chibnall as showrunner. Like Steven Moffat before him, Chibs had some pedigree. Sure, he was behind some forgettable episodes of Doctor Who, but he’d written some absolutely fantastic episodes of its sister show Torchwood. And he was just coming off the success of his smash hit Broadchurch.
So expectations were high. Then they announced the new Doctor…

Here we are, at the end of another series of Doctor Who, but this time with perhaps the most controversial and important twist to the lore we have seen in all of Nu-Who.

The penultimate episode of season 12 of Doctor Who may have somehow left us with more questions than answers as we hurtle into next weeks finale, but it was a fantastic episode all the same.
Whether the writing team can stick the landing next week with all of these questions up in the air is something we’ll have to wait for but ‘Ascension of The Cybermen’ was a clever and thrilling episode of TV.

After the high concept shenanigans of last week’s episode, this week’s episode of Doctor Who was a seemingly straight forward affair; part ghost story, part famous-historical-figure episode.
As the episode went on, however, it became clear that maybe it wasn’t as straight forward as it first seemed.

Team TARDIS are split up this week, as The Doc drops off the group for a return trip to Sheffield. And this episode has what you’ve come to expect from Doctor Who; science fiction nonsense, spectacle, aliens and monsters (some of the best we’ve had in a while too). But it’s far more concerned with the well-being of the companions, something the show all too rarely touches upon. And we discover that when these guys aren’t battling intergalactic threats, they’re fighting their own demons back home.

The universe-shattering events of last week take a backseat, as The Doc tries to once again save the human race from a problem that they’ve kinda got themselves into.
We should’ve been more careful with those micro plastics, guys.

What an episode! The return of the Judoon ended up being the least of this episode’s surprises. Captain Jack is back and better than ever, there’s something going on with a cyberman, the Timelords have made a return, and most importantly, there’s a new Doctor.

After last week’s misfire of an episode, I was nervous for this one. But Jodie Whittaker’s era of Doctor Who has been commended for its historical episodes, a kind of episode that the show all-too-often messes up. And with an interesting premise around Nikola Tesla and America’s gilded age, this episode has a lot going for it.

After winning a holiday (just go with it) the gang are teleported to a scenic holiday resort – that just happens to have been built on the surface of a dead planet. It’s a mixed bag, but has a twist that makes it worth watching.
