Were do I start. Boy did the Christmas Dr Who suck big time. The BBC and Russel T Davis seem hell bent on taking Dr Who and making it the biggest pile of S**t on TV. I know it was never a really top class show, but it did have a certain quality to it. The BBC do like to turn everything the have into unwatchable drivel. They normally manage this by messing around with the schedule and replacing whatever you were waiting to watch with Darts or Snooker. But this time they are taking it to a new level.
Dr Who has very quickly gone from a quite entertaining Sci-fi show to a dumbed down parody of itself.
Every assistant has to fall in love with the Dr. Why? Can't they think of something else for them to do. It's just a very lazy thing to do.
The Stories, I think that may be an over statement, are so basic you might as well not have them. The Tardis gets hit by the Titanic in space? What the hell is that all about.
It has also become a very Gay orientated show. This is the only reason I can see for having Kylie in it as it certainly wasn't for her acting ability. She was as wooden as the backdrops. If she had had less Botox in her face she might have been able bring the script to life! And in the new series they have Catherine Tate which is only going to make it even more unwatchable.
I doubt I will bother watching any of the next series as the trailer at the end really didn't show anything that looked good. But maybe this is what the BBC has been planning for. Once they have lost all there viewers they can stop making them again for another ten years until they run out of Strictly Dancing spin offs to waste the license fee on then bring it out again for another ever so brief outing. Let's face it, it's all they have.
On the other hand ITV have got a new series of Primeval coming soon and that looks great. The trailers they have been showing are looking really cool. Itv always seem to do this sort of thing much better than the BBC.
