Crazy Credits

On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes. See more »

My 4 big problems with season 11:
22 November 2018 | by tulpenfischSee all my reviews

Too many promises! The Christmas episode ended with a big cliffhanger. And it was not solved at all. Why the Tardis is throwing out the new doctor? How does she survive the fall? All this is thrown away like Luke Skywalker throws his lightsaber.

Jodie Whittaker! She is coping David Tennant's doctor without adding anything new to the character. (Except a funny outfit.)

Political Correctness! Many storylines are filled with a teacher like lesson. Complete useless for the story, and therefore just annoying.

The doctor is the companion! Many episodes are not about the doctor. She remains only a marginal figure. The companions are often the main characters here. It also lacks a matching opponent. A villain, the doctor can prove herself as a hero. It's missing.

And all that makes the show trivial and boring.
