    I love "The Tsuranga Conundrum" without apology. Cutting between a man giving birth and a space gremlin eating a nuclear bomb. What other show will even begin to consider offering that?

    You know what would be great? If at the start of series 12, Peter Capaldi's Doctor wakes up in the TARDIS and all of season 11 was just a bad dream.

      So true I miss him. But a head's up he will be in Suicide Squad 2 playing we don't know yet and they start filming September 23 2019.

    That's not right women are supposed to give birth to babies not men. Men doesn't get pregnant women does

      @Adam Darren What I said about biology and the evolution of reproductive mechanisms is factual, and there have been countless examples of aliens looking like "humans" throughout the history of Doctor Who.
      Here's another fact: I too was pissef off about the pregnant "man" in this story until a friend pointed out to me that it was an alien species. So I watched the episode again, and it all made sense.

    • Adam Darren
      Adam Darren 17 days ago

      @ftumschk You're not stating anything fact, as this episode is fiction and what people see is a man.

    • ftumschk
      ftumschk 17 days ago

      @Adam Darren No, I am stating scientific fact - we just don't know how reproduction works with aliens. The evoution of species and their biology is a branching tree of almost infinite different potential futures. That was true on Earth 4 billion years ago when it all kicked off, and it's even more true when multiplied across other planets, galaxies and longer periods of time.
      Speaking of time, this Gifftan was from the 67th century, so their species is already more evolved than us, and they might been evolving for millions of years longer. With a gestation period of mere days rather than 9 months, their potential for rapid evolution is far greater than ours.
      If we consider all the impossible things that have happened in Doctor Who over the decades, an alien male giving birth is positively tame, and well within the bounds of possibility.

      @ftumschk Yea, and the guy in the clip is a bloody alien bloke, an alien fella, an alien man. Whereas, you're a pedantic tosspot.

    • ftumschk
      ftumschk 17 days ago

      @Adam Darren The Doctor's from Gallifrey and Yoss is from Gifftos or wherever planet Gifftans come from. They are both aliens, and who are we to dictate that alien reproduction should work exactly as it does with us? In fact, it would be remarkable if it did, because it's ony by accident that we ended up with our particular "system" on Earth and it could easily have ended up differently. Certainly, anything is possible in the infinitude of space.

    Doctor Who Season 12 will shine when they get rid of Ryan and Yazz, and reduce the sonic screwdriver to occasional use. Jodie and Bradley are amazing.

    I don’t know why everyone hates Jodie so much, she’s the first female doctor and that shouldn’t mean she’s bad, it’s rude that people hated the season so much and it probably made her feel a bit down so just stop with the rude comments and just keep them in your head or say them to someone who shares you opinion

    • Crackers & Cheese
      Crackers & Cheese 2 months ago +4

      Opinions are not rude that say the stories were lacklustre or boring to them. Having a 'female doctor' in them doesn't automatically make those 'meh' stories somehow 'good'. Why should you be allowed to have your opinion out in the open whilst others whom thought the last series was underwhelming should stay silent? People share the same underwhelmed opinion just as much as people who liked the last series and one opinion should not override the other, otherwise there'd be no balance.

      Maaz Kalim Mate, male pregnancies in humans are physically impossible, that’s why I asked. It’s like a human developing pincers. It’s nothing to do with broad mindedness.

      Rachel Wyld Actually it was a parallel to Ryan and his dad. I thought the episode made that quite clear, but perhaps you just weren’t paying enough attention

      No idea. Come to think of it, I knew it was coming before a lot people thanks to a tip off. So I avoided that episode all together. This series was highly sjw party poopers

  • NCG

    I don't mind Whittaker as The Doctor, but the stories and writing are appalling. The show doesn't even feel like Doctor Who.
    In my opinion Peter Capaldi is the best Doctor in the history of the show. Not even his performance as the Doctor could save these stories from being trash.
    Please write some better stories Chibnall. Here's an idea, how's Rassilon doing after being exiled by the 12th Doctor? Is he contemplating revenge against The Doctor? Will her friends be affected? Could part of Rassilon's and the High Council's revenge be killing either Yas, Ryan, or Graham?

      @Kraszko Szabo Yeah, really. I mean, what could have she done? She was lucky there was a bomb onboard, otherwise all of them would be dead.
      She couldn't even be angry, because it had no malicious intent. It wouldn't have harmed them directly, only through eating the ship they were in.

      @Sean Rea are you from UK or US? I think there's strong different opinions from both countries with regards to series11. or some other country? I'm from the UK and most of us (people I've spoke to in real life) thought it was meh-to-lame.
