Who Hype - 2024



View on YouTube

May 11th at Midnight, GMT.
Two episodes will drop, together, on iPlayer, but also simultaneously worldwide on Disney+
One a week thereafter, also at midnight.

Episodes will then play out on the telly the same night, but it'll meant none-telly watchers will have already seem the episode about 17 hours earlier! Yikes!!
But I guess that's the most logical way to do a worldwide release, nowadays.

First two episodes are on tonight, before Eurovision, but are already up on iPlayer. I watched 'em both last night, as was quite happy with just how much lore Russell managed to squeeze into the show. I knew he wouldn't do a complete clear-out, but I was kinda expecting the first few episodes to go gentle on the lore. .. They didn't!! Russell went hardcore!!
Good stuff

I guess his reasoning was along the lines of "we need to introduce the lore to new viewers, so let's just roll with it."

Thoughts on Who Season 1

I enjoyed it overall.
I felt a lot of the season felt rushed, though, be it because Ncuti was missing for two episodes, one after the other, or because the "hidden baddie" didn't hide for too long, since there were only 8 episodes to play with.
Hopefully by next season they'll be able to play with any arcs a little better, and maybe aim for an arc that gets time to breath rather than feeling..
..
Russell'y?
Or, maybe that's the Russell bit of RTD that I've always felt at odds with. The way he sows seeds through the whole season, and then smushes it all together and sprinkles in a little none-sci-fi to magic his way out of it.
It reminded me a lot of Jesus Shoes, if I'm honest.

But it was still an enjoyable last episode, and I've enjoyed the new Doctor more than most people from what I've read online.
People seemed to hate the more emotional Doctor, but every Doctor's different, and this is his "thing", so I think it's ok.
Be interested to hear everyone else's opinions on the season.

Now the long (so long) wait until Xmas.

Video Commentaries for the season are only 2, which is a shame.. Boom and Empire of Death. I'll be honest, the Empire of Death one dragged on a bit, and was more just 50-odd minutes of Bonnie banging on about how great everything was!!! I actually managed to fall asleep halfway through it! Oops!

I think the old lady neighbour is going to end up being the master.

I was wondering the same thing.

Yeah, at first I wasn't too sure about that, but the last episode kinda made it feel very much like that.
