    Missy and even the previous incarnation made me think . . .. . When did THE MASTER become silly and crazy

    In The Fourth's time .. . THE MASTER was cruel, ruthless and cunning but not silly and crazy
    in the Joker-sense of crazy . . . more in the Hannibal Lector sense of crazy

    Seems like the entire show was steadily headed for that silly/joker flippant style more and more the further it goes along: "A big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff" that peaked with that one, then for a while with this doctor lately tried to make everything seem super dramatic and profound, with these all-encompassing philosophical epiphanies that wrap up each episode, which never really had that much behind them. Just set to intense, dramatic music crescendos over his monologue wrap-ups that make them seem super important. With missy as the silly relief.

    as someone said
    This maybe the first Doctor that actually looks like a doctor

    Well if you recall the Timelords beamed that repeating signal into his brain in order to escape the time lock the Doctor had sealed Gallifrey into after the great war with the Daleks. Since this started when he was a youth, the constant repeating signal drove the Master mad. This was played out in Tennant's last episode "The End Of Time" where he regenerated into Matt Smith's Doctor. But yeah, he was never Joker level crazy. That was just Moffat being lazy which totally devalued his character during the past season.

    I don't know if I dislike the new Doctor or the story lines are still trash.

    Agreed. She seems so bland . . .. I the other Doctors NEVER warned against f*cking up time so much . . .she does it like 3 times an episode. . . .
    then turns around and says f*Ck it . . .I'm jumping in

    The most recent one .. . with 'King James' attempt to mack down the black guy is just f*cking weird

    I think Tennant and Smith benefited from some epic story lines.. Could they elevate these new story lines? I don't think so. The new Doctor is not getting any help for these writers.

    I think you are correct
    but
    it seems like ole girl and the showrunner are joined at the hip

    I am hearing rumors they will both leave at the end of the season

    I was a huge fan of Doctor Who until some of scripts near the end of Matt Smith's time started declining. I also think they kept Amy and Rory too long as companions. I almost stopped watching at that time.

    My interest perked up when Peter Capaldi was announced. I considered him a much better actor than Smith and it didn't bother me he was older. But the scripts and production were utter trash and I gave up on the show for good after after ~3 episodes.

    It's probably time to shut down Doctor Who.

    Maybe for at least a decade or so
    The recent showrunners don't seem to "get it"

    I have noticed that they will get someone who wants to Do THEIR STORY
    but will shoe horn Dr Who into it . . ..

    Some of it seem to be a commentary on the show itself

    The Last Episode
    Lady Who . . . .. goes off on King James
    "You just a guy who hides behind self important and titles" - Dr Who
    "You mean like calling oneselt . . .The Doctor?" - King James with the burn

    Everything after Tennant has been awful. Time travel is such a crutch for shitty writers.
