      Was I the only one who found Amy Pond to be initially attractive, but turn into an abominable fucking slut who tries to fuck the Doctor the night before she's due to get married? --Why is that never discussed anywhere? it was revolting.

    "People can't teleport in and out of the Tardis" I'm from the future and Cucknull still ingors this piece of lore in the finale of the season.

    Also past people we can all be existed for a third season of Whittacker and friends. Although if Cucknull sticks to the traditional showrunner formula of 2 doctors and 4-6 seasons then we can all look forward to an even more diverse doctor and an at leas 4 more seasons written by Cucknull. All this diversity brought to you by a 50 year old middle class white guy, don't think about it too much.

    Humanity's future and Earth is already written in Doctor Who lore, this episode and this seasons as a whole demonstrate how bad the new writter is.

    Really sad to see how mainstream media, and those who own it all, just openly hate and act racist towards white people, especially white straight men. This is becoming more and more prevalent in media and anyone who says it isn't is either racist, or a shill.

    4:09 - Not really. The 9th Doctor, Rose, and Jack were all transmatted from the Tardis to Satellite 5. When the Doctor first meets Donna, she's just teleported to the Tardis due to her having consumed Artron energy. The inside of the Tardis doesn't really seem all that much like it's removed from the rest of the universe.

    I grew up watching Dr Who. Never missed an episode, even with the earlier episodes cheesey special effects. I was initially excited with its newer larger budget episodes right upto David Tennant but from then on it was a downward spiral to the rolling train wreck it has become with Jodie Whittaker. I saddens me to say that at this stage the whole thing has been ruined for me, The story line, lore and continuity has been completely screwed and I will probably never watch another episode.

    Believe it or not i just rewatch an old doctor who ep from 2005 or so .
    And even the old version who did have less of a budget mange to make a more convincing furry then what ever this was in this ep .
    By the way the cat lady was also a freaking nun in this old ep if you guys are fan of David you know of who ep i am talking about .

    BBC should hire you, your version of this episode is way the hell better than what chibnal did.

    Now for the bad. Shame on you for not jumping on the title of this travisty. Orphan 55. The name pretty much demands that there are at least 55 abandoned planets starting with Orphan 1 and counting upwards. Are you trying to tell me that humans managed to advance enough to go colonize other planets, grow them and have wars on them which would render them uninhabitable before we completed in wrecking the Earth with global warming? This should have been Orphan 1. Maybe orphan 2-3 if we found a nice barely habitable mining world to strip mine, but even that's pretty fucking stupid, we'd be looking for asteroids and moons to strip mine, lower and non existant gravity wells to make it much more efficient to get the materials mined to useful places. The show specifically called out global warming as the main cause of earth being Orphan 55, but did include wars, so maybe a colonized world could have been an orphan before Earth, but that's highly unlikely as a colony would be made up of compatible people, at least to begin with and new arrivals would be screened for compatibility. So no I'm sticking with my theory Earth should have been Orphan 1.

    Such imaginative story telling! In the future, a society of creatures that resemble Morlocks terrorize what's left of humanity. Maybe the Doctor has already encountered fellow time traveler Professor Hartdegen? He certainly has previously met H.G. Wells, back in an episode from 1985. No wait, Hartdegen was probably an incarnation of the Doctor! And Wells too, for that matter; it's all falling into place now.

  • Deathstroke Gaming-GTA Online and More

    Some people believe that the show being too PC is good as people should change, I don't know what to say. I'm disappointed that people think the show can't be criticised. especially with the abomination of S11.

    This episode is awful!!!! BUT THE WORST EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO EVER!???? Hmmmmmm!!! Yeah maybe? ..... hmmmmm and then Chib’s dropped ‘The Timeless children’ nuclear show, self destruct to steal all the hopes, dreams and childhood memories of whole generations of WHO fans!!! RIP Doctor Who we shall mourn you ...
    😞 ⚰️
    But wait!? Maybe this crap was never really, actually, Doctor Who anymore anyway!? Maybe Baker, Tenant, Smith, and Davison & co can come back to explain that Capaldi really and right royally screwed up the timeline that none if this EVER, EVER HAPPENED!!!!! or that he’s still on Galifrey inside the Matrix and this is all the creation of his Doctors Massive ego!!!? One can but dream! 🧐😫

    This, Twice Upon a Time, and The Witcher were the worst episodes IN EXISTENCE!
    This episode has a squirrel woman, but the budget so low they had to settle with a costume and facepaints.
    Twice Upon a Time out of the blue made Hartnell's Doctor sexist which decredited him.
    The Witchfinder was pure melodramatic acting which was really weird and out of place.
    Edit: Oh and I tried to forgot, but lets not forget the episode that ripped us al in two and discredited The Doctor's ENTIRE EXISTENCE - The Timeless Children. Ouch.
    I have honourable mentions such as The Woman who fell to Earth or whatever it's called and that episode where The Moon was a egg.

    I'm actually not mad at Star Trek & Doctor Who taking new paths and exploring new ideas. I'm just terribly disappointed with the god awful, mind-numbing writing. The monsters in this episode look worse than some of the worst in TNG (the terrible fish-heads in TNG S02 episode 'Manhunt').
