What did the Radio Times make of the Eleventh Doctor?

November. Eleventh month, Eleventh Doctor. Simple really. For me (and it’s boring I know) modern Doctor Who peaked with the Tenth Doctor. This doesn’t mean no other stories were worthwhile, far from it. It’s just my view. As you’ll see (if you carry on) I liked a lot of the Eleventh Doctor. Let’s dig a…

Doctor Who has peaked – so what?

I got drawn (slightly) into one of those pointless on-line arguments where one persons shouts and the other tries to be rational. Waste of time. A certain kind of argument has been used by fans for years: the show is failing, it’s all because of XXX, we should sack XXX and do XXXX. My position…
