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.

@jookia This is one reason why I really like some of the Big Finish audios. Particularly before the new show came back.

Some of them were /seriously weird/ and interesting and they'd experiment a lot with the assumptions.

UNFORTUNATELY when the new show came back they decided they needed to be 'accessible' to that audience and much of the weirdness went away.

@azure Yeah, I haven't listened to them. Should I? I don't know any more. I'm burned out over Doctor Who

re: general 13th doctor who feelings 

@jookia Some of them are good!

I think Natural History of Fear might be my favorite.

@azure Is there a non-spoilery reason why I should listen? What's the premise?

re: general 13th doctor who feelings 

@jookia The doctor is The Editor in a dystopia that deals with problems through Personality Revision.

@azure that might hook me, i'll have to listen

re: general 13th doctor who feelings 

@jookia I also liked …Ish, the Chimes of Midnight, The One Doctor, Forty-Five, Jubilee (the thing Dalek was based on. Jubilee is better. Lots better.), Live 34, and Master.
