    Dr. Who made the big mistake of going the way of political correctness. Chosing a female for the Doctor would have been fine but they chose a weak actress in Jodie Whittaker.

    To my knowledge before taking on doctor who the only thing jodi was known for was being that actress who played someones love interest with an accent so thick you couldn't understand her most of the time. And this isn't me being a nationalist, her own can't decipher her Mumblings. It's not a great surprise that she can't act when in her previous roles all she had to do was be pretty and stand in the background most of the time. However, with that said. Chibnal was a mistake too. The man isn't a talent. The bbc was betting the farm that waves upon waves of younger millennials would back the show wholeheartedly because of it's twisted political messages. To be honest the show may improve after this point , but 2020-2021 will always be a dark stain on the franchise. Some viewers may never return.. The show just became so offensive with it's political undertone of " you're so old you just don't get the young hip generation bs.". That put a lot of people off from the entire franchise. I literally know people who won't watch any doctor who anymore, no matter the season.. The bbc flat lined that series.. Not that overseas television was ever just really great to begin with..

    The female master was awesome. But a female doctor does not work on many levels. It has to be perfect. Jodi I can't understand many times. And she has at can't pull it off. At no time did I get a"she's the doctor." Moment.

    What a mess..I watched the 1st two chapters of flux. RTD can't come fast enough. It's woke it's bad it's crap on a massive scale. I always said colin baker was the worst doctor. I was being kind.
    Jodi is far worse.

    Episodes 3,4 and 5 are a mess. Yaz and Dan run from danger to danger. The Doctor is confusing. They doubled down on the timeless child. Don't waste your time with this mess. Chipnell made it his mission to destroy Doctor Who. Looks like he did it

    Could it be?...

    Doctor Who: 'David Tennant cast as next Doctor' says BBC source

    According to rumours, David Tennant, who played the Tenth Doctor between 2005 and 2010, has been cast as the next Doctor. And if the circulating rumours are to be believed it would make the Scottish actor the first and only actor to play two incarnations of the Timelord.

    The tip off was spotted on a Facebook fan page, in which a user suggested a credible BBC source had leaked the information. The user claims this source is the same person who leaked the casting of Sacha Dhawan as the Doctor's nemesis, The Master, in series 12.

    At first it may seem unlikely but it starts to make more sense the more you think about it. The next series of the show will see returning writer Russell T Davies, who worked with Tennant during his stint as the Doctor, take over as showrunner once more.

    Next year is also the 60th anniversary of the show and although Tennant returned as the Tenth Doctor in the 50th anniversary this would go some way to topping that special.

    There's also no denying that the show is suffering in terms of viewing figures, the New Year's special pulled in its worse ratings since the sci-fi show rebooted 17 years ago. So, who better to catapult those poor ratings back up and get people interested in the show than the man with the highest average viewers since the show was brought back.

    And although the Doctor appears to have no control over their appearance let's not forget the Tenth Doctor somehow managed to regenerate back into himself, the Twelfth Doctor subconsciously regenerated into a person in his past and even the Master chose to regenerate into a younger man.

    Even if that still seems improbable Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor was able to choose his next regeneration with a little help from the Sisterhood of Khan. And, in classic Tom Baker serial Destiny of the Daleks, his Gallifreyan companion Romana was able to select her new body following a regeneration as well...

    Who's to say the Doctor doesn't fancy reliving some former regenerations - just as Tom Baker's cameo in the 50th anniversary suggested...See, I can tell you're believing this rumour already. Unfortunately, we're all going to have to wait as although Jodie Whittaker has already filmed her regeneration a new actor is yet to be named.

    But a returning David Tennant is sure to surprise a few, that's for sure. According to the source, it will 'not be a rehash of the 10th, it will be as the 14th doctor', a role used for three specials before a new 15th doctor is cast. "It won't be a rehash of the 10th it will as the 14th Doctor. They'll looking at using him for three specials which includes the 60th before casting a new 15th Doctor.

    I think David Tennant has the ability to turn this show into a hit again, he had the highest viewer ratings over all the other Doctors since the series came back in 2005...The show would likely gain back the entire viewing audience numbers they had before and then some if David Tennant comes back to the show...Of course good writing is a necessity too which Russell T Davies didn't disappoint last time around, I'm sure he's going to have some great stories for the show...

    If they can get a decent showrunner to write him epically, Then without a doubt he will make the show a hit again. I don't see why they just can't break the doctor's cycle,, I don't see why they can't just Kill the doctor off, Legitimately, End the cycle. And then the time lords have a conundrum about the doctor,

    Remember when he was originally condemned to regenerate over and over? It was a council of timelords who cursed him to that, They made him pick his first face.



    It could be epic they could play that same footage and redub the audio and have him generate from number two there into Tennant. I think that would be an epic way to bring Tennant back anyway, :)
