A little over a year ago I wrote this article talking about the start of the latest season of Doctor Who.
While I was a huge fan of the series, I can’t say that I still am.
I was that disappointed in the season that I didn’t watch every episode. (I had to consult Wikipedia to remember that I did watch the New Years Special).
Now, while I was prepared to overlook it as what happens when a new team settles in to an established series, it is worse than that.
I don’t have faith that the powers that be actually know what they are doing.
Taking a whole year off can’t do the series any good. (There won’t be a new Doctor Who episode until early 2020).
While the 2018 season was only 10 episodes, no one knows how many will be in the 2020 season.
The Christmas Specials are gone.
Yes, it is only one episode.
Though having made one for the past 12 years (2005 – 2017), not having one last year was disappointing.
And not having one this year doesn’t fill me with hope for the new season.
Will I watch it in 2020.
Honestly, I don’t know.
Either way, I have a feeling that unless the season does something extraordinary to get the viewers back, I don’t think it will survive.
