    Sorry this post isn't more extravagant, I'm posting this from my phone, anyway, some people may not be interested, but the first episode of the new season of doctor who is out, it's called, spyfall, and while I don't want to spoil for anyone, I feel a lot of people may not even care to watch it unless they knew, that the master is in this episode. It's worth a watch. I hope the whole season holds up to this standard.

    Yes, And to boot that, The Guy that plays the master isn't the same guy that played the master last time,

    This guy,

    To be fair about this first episode, The series seemed to be over its Feminism push from last season, Making fewer grandiose social empowerment gestures. But, It's still some of the weakest doctors who since well. Since the series rebooted in 05. But it would be unfair to say they haven't recognized some of the issues from last season and addressed them. For instance, In this episode, The doctor spends a great deal of time working on the Tardis in a mechanics shop and when she realizes the person she's been traveling with this episode is the master. There is this stomach-turning feeling that was well acted. All of this is in contrast to how bad last season was it still isn't holding up to what doctor who should be. But it's getting better than last season though :)

    ok I got to see the episode.
    Less preachy. less feminist. more who.
    The new master is a delightfully evil presence.
    And Jodie is NOT the doctor at least now she is trying.
    4.5/10

    Agreed, It's still some of the weakest who, of the New Generation, But, They are trying, The outfit change was a great help too I think.

    A realization occurs, When we last Saw the master there were two versions of him/her. Missy master and that other guy. My question is, Which version of the master is this guy the direct predecessor of? Missy or the other one? Because there were developmental differences between the two.

    So I watched the first two episodes of this new season 12 last night...It was a two part story with the Master as mentioned above and the Master was the only highlight of the show, he was great, but before his appearance the story was dull and dragging on without much excitement...Sorry but this incarnation of the Doctor is dull and lifeless, she is the wrong person to fill that role, if it wasn't for the Master and his fine performance the two part episodes would have been so lame...The heart and soul of the Doctor isn't there...

    My only problem with the show is, We don't know the real future, See, IT's rumored that Chris Chibnall The showrunner was actually informed last year that his two-season contract would not be renewed, And Jodi Whittaker who is close friends with Chibnall "because they have worked on other shows together" is leaving with him.

    Are Jodie Whittaker and new 'Doctor Who' showrunner leaving already?

    Speculated fact: Whittakers Doctor will Die at the end of this season.

    Speculated fact: No one knows the future of the show, This could be the end of the current series with a long possibly four+ year hiatus. This may be all the doctor who we get till 2025.

    Some day though, The show will Return. Hopefully, when it does, they will hit all the high notes. The two main problems were, No one really liked Jodi as the doctor, And that's a perfectly fair thing, If people don't like the actor, That's not feminism or a social movement. It's that she may be pretty but she's not interesting she's as bland as oatmeal. I think Casting confused Bland as oatmeal with "Safe" Tragically. As for Chibnall. He succeeded Steven Moffett, Who was the real genius behind the rebooted shows success. They need a compelling believable Doctor And someone who can write as engagingly as Steven Moffett, These things may be difficult to find, But, When those Crucial pieces of the puzzle are found, Doctor who will return.

    Sorry but Russell T Davies was the real genius behind Doctor Who's return in the early 2000s and was the best writer they had, Moffett was okay for a little while after Davies left...

    I know some people would complain about it, but with the show being about time travel, They could literally just bring Tennant back, I mean, they could make an episode where he just shows up. And then we follow that Doctor. I mean, I wouldn't be opposed to it, though I suppose some fans wouldn't like that the continuity was altered.. But still, It's a show about altering continuities though. Or at least, It used to be.

    I re-watched these two episodes today, enjoyed the story more the second time around, above all else, the Master is brilliant...An outstanding performance by Sacha Dhawan, I will watch all the episodes that the Master plays a part in...

    They have to do something about the intro sounds, its awful and dreary, too distorted from the original 2005 version...Come on, fix it, make it sound more upbeat and exciting...

    At this point They should just hedge their bets and do a mater spin-off series, I'd love to see a whole season of the master just traveling time making a mess of things. Tell me that wouldn't Rock?
