Robert says...This episode was better than most of Jodie's, but am I alone in not wanting to know everything about the doctor. I am more than happy to be left wondering about him, he is after all called Doctor Who. Using ones Imagination wondering who he is what's his past that's all part of the Dr Who adventure. And one side note I do believe Ryan ( the wooden hat stand) almost acted in this episode, it's all to much for me I think I need to did down.
SonicR says...I haven't seen the episode. I have no desire to do so. Courtesy of some leaks and information from friends, I know the plot of the episode
Chibnall knows his Doctor Who. References to the Shobogans, Panopticon, Borusa...he knows his stuff. Clearly he knew about the Morbius Doctors as well. As best I can determine, this whole series arc was entirely devoted to making the Morbius Doctors official Doctors, without a single damn given for any other lore or continuity that would break as a result. Apparently Chibnall's wanted to tell this story for decades - and I think that's correct, because it reads like atrocious fan fiction. He's broken an extremely long list for a minor thing fans had easily explained away for decades.
He's completely and utterly character assassinated the Doctor. She's now the Chosen One, destined for great things - hell, as the Ruth Doctor shows, she was kicking about in a police box TARDIS calling herself the Doctor long before the Hartnell Doctor came on the scene. So all that character growth that we saw the Hartnell Doctor experience? Utterly pointless. It's incredibly disrespectful to Hartnell.
The Doctor should not be the uber-special Chosen One. He should always be the ordinary man, the underachiever, who got bored/fearful/whatever and left Gallifrey, becoming the person we know through his interaction with his companions. You know, the development we actually saw. Guess that's not the case anymore.
Can the Doctor die mid-regeneration like other the Time Lords? Is she immortal? Does she still have infinite regenerations? I guess that makes The Time of the Doctor completely pointless now too. It's nice that The Day of the Doctor has got someone to commiserate with.
So I guess the 'first' Doctor is actually the millionth Doctor for all we know? Numbering them all will be fun won't it?
But the best thing is that the Ruth Doctor comes in and tells the Doctor that the revelations about desecration of her past don't actually change who she is, so it doesn't matter. I vehemently disagree, obviously, but will simply say that if that's the case, why bother with the storyline in the process? What's the point of it?
The only conclusion that I can reach is that Chibnall has done it purely for the sake of his ego, so he will be remembered for something - cos it's definitely not going to be for the quality of his episodes and era.
I'm a lifelong fan of Doctor Who. I'm not a fan in any way, shape, or form of what this zombified husk is now. As far as I'm concerned, Doctor Who ended in 2017, and will not be revived until someone comes along and rightly retcons this mess away. 'The Master tampered with the Matrix.' There. Done.
"I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous." Is a sentence that is completely and utterly false. Let that sink in.
I shall now attempt to compartmentalise this episode so that I'll actually be able to enjoy past eras of the show. Wish me luck.
(As an aside, I don't think I'd have much of a problem with the Timeless Child idea if it were applied to anyone other than the Doctor. Hell, it'd actually make a good deal of sense to make it the Master - it would at least explain why he's able to come back from assumed death all the time.)

Ducktr says...I personally felt Dr Who died in the last series of CapaldiÃ¢??s- made me actually hate Capaldis Doctor. On the other hand I liked the fresh take of JodieÃ¢??s first series, but unfortunately it has gone down hill again. As if the Ruth Doctor mystery wasnÃ¢??t enough of a mystery solve- they threw too much at us and tried to explain it all in one episode.
That aside I do think if you shouldnÃ¢??t throw aside the show on the basis of what youÃ¢??ve read. Watch the episode yourself- In my opinion it was the Master who convinced the Doctor she was the timeless child- not the Matrix. The master is a master at mind manipulation- youÃ¢??re idea that it could actually have been the Master makes a lot more sense than it being the Doctor- and when you become show runner it will be great to see you set matters straight. PS great to hear from you again!
MaxHR says...The reboot of Dr Who with a female is the best thing since sliced bread.
Enough of harvey Weinstein type tired old geezers hovering over young girls.
The pool of english actors that could fill the role is limited, Probably why Jodie has so many assistants.
Putting a 40 plus cougar with just a young male assistant would not work in these times either.
Just about every SciFi show has rebooted featuring strong female roles.
In business it's called a 'creative gale of destruction', out with the old, in with the new.
Andrew says...This review pretty much sums it up
