I'm hoping for a giant train wreck that'll at least be entertaining. Hopefully Jodie won't be the third straight Doctor wasted on terrible scripts.

Episode 10 will end with a 1-800 number to call in and vote for your favorite personality. The contest results will be widely invalidated when it's discovered that one man called the number 900 times.

Hahaha oh god this is going to be a trainwreck. Of course Moffat felt the need to address the issue head-on instead of just treating it like a normal thing that happens.

Please tell me that arenít trying to do something involving Rosa Parks. I do not trust Chibnall to handle something like that.

This could get offensive real fast if it falls into a "Doctor inspired Rosa" / white savior trope, or if aliens / monsters were somehow involved.

Could also be something like historical events being messed up and the Doctor having to make sure things go as they're meant to, a la Back To The Future 2.

This would still be pretty bad

The only way it would even approach being okay is if The Doctor & Co. are just there as observers because one of them wanted to see it happen. If they have any kind of influence on the actual events in the episode, itíll be a shitshow.

So there's a lot of 50s/60s americana shots in there. Montgomery motor pool, the motel (making me wonder if they're going full MLK too).

This is honestly the episode Iím dreading most because thereís such a low chance of it being handled in a respectful manner. If itís anything more involved than The Doctor & Co. watching and observing moments in history, then itís going to be a shitshow.

I think I like her burgundy tee more than the grey one, but theyíre both fantastic. 13 was always going to be a popular choice for cosplayers, but I think the apparent comfortability is definitely going to help. Love the coat, love the tees, love the boots. Iím only iffy about the capri(?) pants. Really digging the whole 80ís look though.

The size of Smithís first console room really helped sell the size of the Tardis in general. My biggest issue with his second room/Capaldiís is how cramped everything is.

I like the general look of it, but it feels too spread out. The console doesnít feel central to the room, and the whole thing feels like one big rectangular room.

I feel like any attempt at ďsomeoneís trying to disrupt Rosa Parksí protest and only The Doctor can help!Ē is going to come across as a really gross attempt at inserting your fictional character into an extremely sensitive and important historical matter. I donít think thereís a writer alive skilled enough to pull that off.

In a way, is that not been what Doctor Who has always been about?

Sure, but itís one thing to say your fictional character fought alongside Richard the Lionheart, itís entirely another to say Rosa Parksí protest would have failed without them.

Iíd like to see a T2 style episode where Earth scientists try to replicate a Dalek they can control for the military and 13 has to destroy it.

Although isnít that more or less the 2005 episode? I havenít watched it in years.

GOD drat IT PEOPLE WHAT DID I JUST SAY

To give another soul-crushing example;
This week the guy in charge of Hasbroís Star Wars toy division was promoted and given a new position that oversees more than just SW toys. The official Star Wars site posted an interview with his replacement, who happened to be a woman, and in it they said all the same kind of things about the toy line that the previous guy had said, gave info about upcoming stuff etc. Really nothing even notable aside from a changing of the guard. Iíll give you three guesses as to what an absolutely embarrassing number of the Facebook comments on that post were whining about.

So yes, when people lose their poo poo over a woman being put in charge of toys, I have no problem assuming thereís a toxic portion of the fanbase for literally anything. Thereís probably angry, toxic Jeopardy! fans out there.
