I've been watching Doctor Who since it started in Australia in 1966. In 1981 when Tom Baker announced that he was leaving the show after 7 years in the role; (5 would have been enough); both he and JNT hinted at the next Doctor might be a "she". Jodi Whittaker was born in 1982 and we had to wait until 2018 to finally see a female version of the Doctor. Or did we? From what I've read most of the scripts for Series 11 were written in advance of Jodi being chosen for the role; and they were written for a male lead. Which has been one of those issues the show has always had. Scripts written for one actor; being given to an actor with a completely different style. It's a problem that hopefully is corrected in Series 12; along with a few other minor issues.
As for SERIES 11 itself; I throughly enjoy it; and really don't understand why a FEW people seem to dislike it SO much.
Was it the Doctor being female? Get over it, it's meant to be the 21st century. Was it the change in composer after 10 years? As music impacts a show so much; even if you don't notice it; I can understand this; but the work Segun Akinola did is excellent, so maybe it'll just take people time to adjust. Was it the approach to story telling? Too many "historically" based shows? I just don't understand it. As I said I loved the new series; but I only gave it 4 stars because there was a little too much pointing of the old sonic screwdriver to resolve problems.
