What's off about the show is simple it's the writing. It's not the new doctor, Here are some examples of the doctor being a complete badass. What made the doctor great was the doctor always had a plan some scheme to save the world and if not he would improvise one, This new season of Doctor who was mostly comprised of "here's the new doctor, watch her run from danger with a group of people who don't even really know why they are there. It just feels like while everyone was worried that the doctor wasn't going to be as good because she was a woman, That the BBC was banking on being able to use the fact that she was a woman to ward off any criticisms, People could say, Well yeah, But it will take some time to warm up to a new doctor, they need to find that sweet spot. Let me present Tenants first scene as the Doctor, You can't hide bad writing behind political correction, This is what made the doctor Good. This is just bad writing. I'm not picking on her because she's a woman, She's not fit for the role... Shes ultra-hot, But she's no doctor.
