The one thing you could certainly say about series 11 without causing a war on the internet is that it was a stark contrast to previous series, which is what was needed. But for me personally there were only two, maybe three episodes that I liked (The Women Who Fell To Earth, Kerblam! and Rosa at a pinch). It wasn't outright vomit-inducingly bad with the exception of episode 5; the potential and bare bones were there but I did find it a bit on the dull side overall, and at times the writing seemed to rely too much on exposition and coincidence, with signs of poor planning at times - in episode 4, the Doctor claims to love a good conspiracy, only to say the exact opposite in episode 7, implying that the script editors and writers' room hadn't properly thought the character through. I suppose it's only to be expected though when you've been watching a show for a decade that you'll compare more recent episodes negatively to what has come before.
More importantly, this trailer does seem to hint at an improvement. An apparent plot arc, a darker tone, more interesting villains and nods to the show's past, and everyone feels as though they're settling into their roles and characters and finding their feet. Let's see where this takes us...
There we go - my first post on this forum. Done. Expecting the second forum post syndrome to kick in momentarily.
