Doctor Who Series 11 Official Thread

New lead, new companions, new showrunner, new writing team, new logo, new composer... We're in for something else, is what I'm saying.

Premiering in October 2018.

Jesus Christ, it's been ages and yet I didn't catch up with the series watching the last Christmas special. Has "Class" been officially canceled yet? The first season was great, but apparently not popular, or successful, enough which is a darn shame.

[bold]Time trials: How Jodie Whittaker became the new face of Doctor Who[/bold]

[quote]Whitaker auditioned for Chibnall and the show’s executive producer Matt Strevens, reading specially-written script pages designed to see if she could handle the many different emotional sides of the eccentric Time Lord. The pair then asked the Broadchurch star to self-tape herself spouting what Whittaker describes as “sci-fi gobbledygook,” something she found surprisingly enjoyable. “I had an iPhone, wires, in a box,” she says. “I pretended to defuse something, and I loved it.”

[quote]Strevens reveals that he and Chibnall “saw a few actresses for the part,” but couldn’t stop thinking about Whittaker. “She was just so compelling,” says the EP. “In a way, it was a no-brainer. The fact that we were casting a female Doctor disappeared really quickly from our minds. We were just casting the Doctor and she felt like our Doctor.” Chibnall says that casting Whittaker “was the easiest decision I made in my whole career.”

Is there really something so inherently captivating about the male body that you would watch The Doctor sit at a table without saying anything for an hour every week? Of course not; it all depends on what comes out of his/her mouth and what he/she does. You know, just like in the real world.

Seems weird to me to be so stuck on the chromosomes of The Doctor's current suit.

[quote]In 1979, a BBC strike halted production of Doctor Who’s 17th series, leaving its final, Douglas Adams-penned story incomplete. Now, the original footage has been remastered and recut with hand-drawn animation to fill in the visual gaps of episodes where the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his companion Romana (Lalla Ward) visit the high-security prison planet of Shada. There they encounter a villainous alien trying to amass criminal knowledge and a retired Time Lord guarding a secret that, in the wrong hands, could mean the end of the universe as we know it.

[bold]Doctor Who Season 11 To Feature Show’s FIRST Writers Of Color[/bold]

[quote]The upcoming Doctor Who season 11 continues to break new ground for the series as the new season will feature the first writers of color to ever work for the show. The new season will see more diversity, both inside and outside of the TARDIS.

[quote]It's hard to believe that in the long history of Doctor Who, no writers of color have ever worked for the series. But in looking at its history, the writer's room has never been that diverse. In the 55 years that the show has existed, only nine women have served as writers. That's kind of strange considering the series would not exist without producer Verity Lambert, who helped bring the very first episodes of the series to television sets across Britain. But even odder is that no person of color has ever written for the show, although those early episodes were directed by a British man of Indian descent, Waris Hussein.

[quote]That all changes with season 11, though. For the first time, Doctor Who will have writers of color working on the show. In a press conference before the show's big panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, new showrunner Chris Chibnall spoke about the series' efforts in diversity.

[quote]“It should be the most inclusive show on television. The whole concept of Doctor Who is that anyone can go anywhere.”

by Anonymousreply 2107/20/2018

I'm mostly glad Moffat is gone. Yes, the "Girl in the Fireplace" was one of the best episodes (as was "Blink") but he made a mess out of his run. The "Silence Will Fall" and all the crap he had drag on for 3 years was awful. There was no payoff in the end worth the 3 year wait he put viewers through. Many of his other plot lines were indecipherable and bizarre. I know people complained that Davies was too cartoonish and his characters were childish - but those seasons are what revived the series & it was always a campy show, historically.

by Anonymousreply 3107/20/2018

r31 Your last sentence literally discredits the point you were making in the first two. Also, Missy or River becoming The Doctor makes zero sense if you're even passingly familiar with this show. They're already their own characters and it's not like "The Doctor" is just a moniker that passes from one person to another. Jesus.

by Anonymousreply 3207/20/2018

Actually, R31, the existence of Missy and River Song proves the existence of actresses who are intelligent and charismatic enough to play the Doctor.

I just hope Whittaker is another one in that category, but I've never seen her work. I will tune in long enough to see if she's up to the mark, and for her entire run if she is.

by Anonymousreply 3307/20/2018

The characters of Missy and River are intelligent because they're written to be intelligent. Look towards older Star Trek to see brilliant women being written as blubbering idiots. Most anyone who's gone through basic training in acting can pull off convincingly playing a dimwit or a genius. Jodie has graduated Guildhall with the highest degree, so she'll do more than fine in this. It's just a silly show at the end of the day.

As for charisma, we'll see. I have my doubts on that front as well.

by Anonymousreply 3407/20/2018

r22 I don't like how BBC has this business of Doctor Who set up in the first place. Every showrunner should be contracted for three to five seasons at most and then they should be replaced with a new one. Because otherwise they become this superstar when things are going great, and a hated person when they're not. And the latter seeps into my enjoyment of the show because all I can see anymore is their tired-ass formula. Creative juices run out eventually, which is only natural. I just wish they'd plan for it beforehand.

Anyway, here's Jodie doing an epic catwalk at Comic-Con.

[bold]There's a very clever reason why Doctor Who series 11 will have three companions[/bold]

[quote]"I love Doctor Who as a big, popular, mainstream, accessible show," Chibnall said. "So I wanted to make sure that every member of the audience felt they had a relatable character, an access point. Hopefully it means that the show can resonate with the broadest possible audience. And of course, three companions with the Doctor... we're really going back to 1963 – that's the format of the show! You're not changing the format, that's how it started, really – which I only realised afterwards."

[quote]The Doctor's new friends – Chibnall says not calling them "companions" just feels "a bit more natural" but "is in no way a rule or edict from now on" – include Yaz (Mandip Gill), who is "in absolute awe of the Doctor" and Ryan (Tosin Cole), who "challenges the Doctor from time to time, gets it right sometimes, but wrong a lot of the time".

[quote]"People have an 'in', in three different ways," Gill added. "We all bring something different to the group, with gender, race, everything. And just the personalities of the three characters are very different.

by Anonymousreply 3607/25/2018

Well, why not three companions, they've done it several times before.

r37 I've never seen the pre-reboot series but I'm glad they're opting for more than one companion again. I never much cared for "The Chosen One" trope with Rose, Amelia, and Clara. I want the companions to be enjoyable and well-written characters, but ultimately expendable and replaceable.

[bold]'Time Traveler's Wife' Drama From Steven Moffat Scores HBO Green Light[/bold]

[quote]HBO, under orders to do more from new corporate parent WarnerMedia, has handed out a straight-to-series order for a take on Audrey Niffenegger's novel The Time Traveler's Wife.

[quote]The drama, which landed at the premium cabler after a multiple-outlet bidding war, will be adapted by Steven Moffat (Sherlock, Doctor Who). An episode count and premiere date have yet to be determined. Casting has not yet begun. The drama is described as an intricate and magical love story that tells the story of Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem ... time travel.

[quote]"I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it," Moffat said. "In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called 'The Girl in the Fireplace' as a direct response to it. When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realized she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true. The brave new world of long-form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after — but not necessarily in that order.”

r40 You mean like in the 60s when the Doctor also had three companions?

I'm tired of that trope now so this is refreshing.

I was let down by the plot for the season premiere. Star Trek Voyager did the whole "hunting" thing with the hirogen (and did it better) than this episode. Didn't they also keep their human trophies in the same way as tooth-faced man described.

Visually, it was pretty nice, though that squid monster / data collection device looked like it was straight out of The Matrix. I like that the Doctor made the sonic screwdriver from scratch and finally admitted it was a scanner / all-in-one kind of device. I agreed with all of the criticism that it went from opening doors to becoming a total magic wand in recent years.

One of the major pieces of criticism in the Moffat era was that the Doctor would fight enemies by telling them that he's the Doctor and they should just be scared and run away. In the Davies era, someone always sacrificed themselves and died (which happened here). It looks like we are going back to the sacrifice thing. The Moffat monologues of "I'm the doctor - fear me! Run!" were stupid ways to win. The fact that the Doctor grabbed the transport device was a good way out.

The one character who seemed like she'd be a fun companion was killed. The others will have to develop more to see what they can offer. Is he going to have 3? Or is one the Rory and the Wilf?

Jodie's answers during the commercials were soooo saccharine over the top. It's just a show, girl. A very famous show, but still.

The three companions have potential, they're all played by likeable actors and have room for personal growth and for developing interesting relationships. In fact, the writers kind of hit us over the head with how much room for growth and potential for interesting relationships the three companions have. I'd bet quite a lot of real money that the kid with dyspraxia (?) does something that requires super physical coordination during the season finale.

Liked seeing the Doctor think on her feet and have nothing to work with, not even memories, that's a nice direction for the show to take.

by Anonymousreply 7910/09/2018

Good camera work, good lighting, good sound design. Technically well made. However the characters felt a bit generic for me, hopefully they get a bit more fleshed out. Script was a bit meh, felt a little flat at times. Some good comedy bits but mostly dark stuff. Very obvious plot points and concequences.

Main question though, does it feel like doctor who? Honestly, not currently, but it is only the first episode.

How's Jodie? She's alright. The other characters didn't stand out for me. I would've preferred one companion.

Overall just ok. While technically well made, the story didnt really do much for me.

And, it feels new and fresh. Love the new cinematography; dark and cinematic. The show looks very rich now...not as flat and cartoony.
