elisi: Candide as criticism of Chibnall Who (Chibnall)
So, tonight (at 7pm) we'll get the only Doctor Who of the whole of 2019.

I am trying very hard not to be negative, so here is a very positive review of The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos (and S11 in general).

However, when I started thinking about tonight's ep I figured the older girls will probably ask what happened in S11 (they only watched the first two episodes) and my answer will be: Nothing much, really.

Of course Doctor Who is by nature very accessible, you can hop on board pretty much anywhere, but the biggest development of S11 was Ryan calling Graham 'grandad'.

ETA: Knew I was forgetting something. My summary of S11:


And to go with that, I bring you something silly. From the comments of a post about Resolution (even the link is spoilery! Don't hover over!), here is a 'Leaked script extract':


It's possible there was something else I meant to say, but I am 3/4 of the way through a Fifth Doctor story and would like to see how it ends. :) (I am watching Classic Who backwards. I saw the movie years ago and most of Seven. I have now watched the rest of Seven, all of Six (♥) and have now started on Five. It's all been far more engaging than S11. (Go on Chibnall. Prove me wrong!)
