Reviews: 11x01 The Woman Who Fell On Earth [Doctor Who]

I’ve been wanting to write a post about the Doctor Who season premiere since the last scene faded into black.

As you might remember, I was not very thrilled about the choice. Well not for the choice itself - even if I didn’t really liked Jodie too much in Broadchurch - but because of the reaction of the fandom to the news of a female Doctor. Some screamed bloody murder, saying that they were done with the show, and some went the opposite way saying that it was something that made history... ahem... it’s a show... a Female President would have made history...

I felt like these people were implying that Doctor Who was a misogynist/sexist show before, when it has never been the case imho...

But I was excited... because a young female Doctor seemed the only possible direction to take... Doctor who evolved into a very dark show somehow... we needed something fresh, a Doctor that can smile and be happy... a positive spin! And Jodie is the right face for it!

[THIS article says it better that I could ever say it]

After 10 minutes of her appearing into my screen I knew SHE WAS THE DOCTOR! She is perfect for the role... I really like her energy and I didn’t feel like she was over acting like she did (imho) in Broadchurch!

I really enjoyed the episode as well even though Grace/Nan’s death was pretty obvious... she was not the kind of woman that stays home, waiting for her husband and grandchild to come back from their adventures in time and space... she was the sort of person who wants to live it! A brave and smart woman! A perfect companion...

When I saw the pod and the ball of wires I thought that they were parts of the TARDIS went insane for a moment after the explosion, trying to get itself together and that the Doctor had to help it... that would have been quite interesting to watch, instead we had Tim Shaw and his teeth collection... I guess he served the purpose of creating the team.

I like the new screwdriver but I hope she’s not going to really call it Swiss knife... I found quite odd that she was able to create it outside of the TARDIS without special material... who knows if it will work on wood this one LOL!

I like the companions! Great choice, I think it’s going to be interesting seeing them interact... especially since they know each other, but not that much...

I was very excited at the idea to see the new TARDIS and I did not expect that ending... I guess we’ll see it next week!!!

Overall I am pretty happy with everything. Really enjoyed the writing. Some quotes were surprisingly good! I am finally excited again about the show... I was not a Moffat’s Fan... I really disliked his attitude in general and I think he was more interested to show how brilliant he was than write a good show! I can’t wait for next week! Welcome back Doctor!
