I don’t think that anyone could ever replace them. But in the same breath, the young comedy performers coming through just haven’t got that iconic quality.

  • The Doctor considers her new travel companions her ‘fam’.
  • Things can get into the TARDIS. More worrying the Doctor has no idea how they managed it.
  • Even the Doctor doesn’t know everything.

  • The Doctor is really hard to get rid of, even bullets don’t deter her.
  • There are times when the Doctor doesn’t know what to do.

  • The Doctor hates being in people’s Livers.
  • Where there is risk there is hope.
  • Dark times never sustain, even though at times it feels like it might.

  • The Doctor has lived for thousands of years.

  • The Doctor has to work out the connections between a missing submarine, a missing astronaut, birds going haywire and alien tech, but to start with she can’t see the connections. Although she has ruled out the talking cat – LOL.
  • Yaz has got brave, or foolish, you decide.
  • Being married to an astronaut is impressive and amazing. But it can be hard to be married to someone like that, as it can cause massive insecurity.
  • It was so nice to see a gay couple kiss and express their love for one another on TV.

Episode 7 – Can You Hear Me?

  • The TARDIS has a database of all living things, past, present and future.
  • Everyone has fears, doubts and nightmares.
  • The Doctor is good at escaping.
  • Humans are magnificent.

Episode 8 – The Haunting of Villa Diodati

  • Nobody should interfere with the future.

Episode 10 – The Timeless Children

  • The Master really is an insane genocidal maniac.
  • The Doctor is not above asking the Master to help her friends, even though she knows he will say no.
  • Paralysis-fields are a thing.
  • Death particles are a thing.
  • This episode gives the history of The Doctor’s race with regards to the unique regeneration ability.
  • People need The Doctor.
  • The is now a spare TARDIS.

If every episode had been like the last episode the series would have been fantastic. But sadly it wasn’t. There were too many eh episodes.
