general 13th doctor who feelings 

I think mid-second season of her run is about time for me to put out my feelings on this new doctor and show running. I'm enjoying it. The show feels like it's at a better pace, I'm a lot less frustrated than the almost constant cliffhangers from the show's history. It hasn't felt like any of the stories have been weak. I like that it's been set around Earth a lot yet remained plenty interesting still. I like seeing more brown people.

Overall, the show feels a lot more grounded. The 13th doctor is cool. It's been so long since there's been a doctor without constant angst or HUGE DARK SIDE. Instead of having huge universe plots, a lot of it is centering around personal plots and I really like that.

Though, 'it's a better show' isn't really a great endorsement. I don't think I would suggest anyone watch Doctor Who, and that kind of sucks. The formula is repetitive, the world building isn't great and its infinite run time means there's no stakes at all.

this season the big arc is that the master destroyed galifrey because reasons, and it's REALLY hard to care AT ALL about it because the doctor doesn't even fucking go to galifrey ever EVEN AFTER SAVING IT FROM ITS LAST DESTRUCTION and obviously galifrey is going to come back nothing in doctor who really changes that much

now if you compare this to last season's arc - a big bad guy killed graham's wife and graham wants revenge, last season's despite being less interesting in theory is MUCH more exciting because nobody knows what will happen to graham or how his character progresses. maybe he might leave? maybe he might forgive the bad guy?

@jookia @azure A thing that really bugs me about this current season is that they seem to have forgotten about all of the characterization of the companions last season and now it's just like... they're a bunch of random folks who act as story-convenient placeholders.

Previous season was great for so many reasons. Ryan, Graham, and Yaz all had some great development that felt permanent at the time.

@fluffy @azure Yeah, a lot of it's gone and I guess we have to do more development now
