THE PC SEASON 11
This season is the most pc it has ever been. Don’t get me wrong, Classic Doctor Who did have its own stories where it would talk about political issues going on at the time but it was usually once every season, not every bloody episode! Almost all the episodes had some pc element to it in some ways. Lets take a look at the historicals, Chibnall wanted to go back to it’s roots and teach some shit. All he taught me was that racism is bad from rosa and demons and that women should have equal rights from witches. That’s three episodes that have some moral at the end which are very meaningful in our times. Arachnids in the UK is just a big middle finger to America telling them Donald Trump is a massive dick head. Even though he is, messages like those should be really subtle. I haven’t watched any of the episodes after kerblam because I was so sick of season 11’s bullshit. Episodes that might have controversy should happen once a season not majority of the fucking episodes. And the messages in those episodes should be subtle too because it makes the watching experience more horrible because it’s ramming a message down my throat.
Thought I would post this after the recent finale
Plus it’s a bop
Before watching the episode I heard so many good things about it. “It’s the best of season 11!” “Omg that was an amazing episode.” I was excited, ready to watch this “spectacular” episode I put off for about a week. Here’s my review.
It’s just a copy of The Robots of Death with a few new ideas sprinkled on top. It plays out exactly like every robot story in Doctor Who. Robots malfunction and start killing people. It’s not any ordinary malfunction and it turns out there’s mastermind behind it. The mastermind is actually not the person the doctor thought it was. The mastermind is actually someone completely different who’s been hiding in the shadows. Some of the ideas in the episode had lots of potential and I’m sad that they weren’t used to it’s potential. Now don’t get me wrong the episode is enjoyable. I just wish it had some more original ideas.
I wish his character had more time on screen. At the end of the episode Yas is like we need to go see the child of dan cooper because he died. That scene I think is supposed to be touching but I didn’t find it that touching. Dan was only on screen for about 6 minuets and that’s barley enough time for emotional attachment. I liked dan and then he just dies, no emotional attachment at all.
The episode presents a very interesting idea about jobs being fulfilled by only Robots in the future. It’s a very interesting topic that I love. This future might turn out to be true because now most factories are worked by robots. It’s an amazing idea and I would love to see more of it in Doctor Who.
Overall this episode has some amazing ideas that weren’t used to it’s full potential. It instead decides to be a kind of copy cat. It had some amazing performances by lee Mack, Jodie Whittaker, and Bradly Walsh. I give this a 6/10.

THE WAR MASTER: THE MASTER OF CALLOUS
When I was listening to this, I was listening to it as if it was one big audio. So I’ll be reviewing it as one big audio. Here’s my review. ⚠️SPOILER WARNING⚠️ .
Honestly I found this set so delightful and I think it is better than the first set. It starts out all lighthearted and then it takes a turn down Dark Lane like a horror movie. The set is like four parts instead of four individual stories and I think that was an amazing idea. I hope the rest of the sets will be one big story like this one because it just works so well.
His performance as the master is brilliant. He has the same vibe as Delgado and tbh, he is the Delgado of new who. I’ve heard that there have been complaints about Derek not being in this one that much, but honestly I like it that way. When ever he does appear it makes it so much scarier because you don’t know what he’s planning. The Master not showing up that much is a good thing because it improves the set and fits in well with Derek’s master.
THE PERSISTENCE OF DREAMS
The Persistence of Dreams is the highlight of this set in my opinion. While listening to it, I felt as if I was losing my mind just like Martine. The script has some bat shit crazy moments and that’s how it makes it so amazing. The Directing was beautifully done and this is some of @scotthandcock1984
best work in my opinion. When I was listening to this, it was 2am and it scared the shit out of me. The ending was jaw dropping and my eyes were wide open out of astonishment. The way that blip fades out at the end is truly terrifying because I was left with total silence in the dark after listening to the most insane audio ever. It was the perfect way to end that audio.
THE VOICE ACTING
Everyone was perfect for their part, even the minor characters like those two soldiers at the end. Samantha Béart did an outstanding performance as Martine, and I loved her character. I could tell she put her heart and soul into The Persistence of Dreams. I feel that Samantha Béart should win some sort of award for her performance.

Four, Five, Six, Seven and Eleven. Would love to see Twelve thrown in with this group. I mean it was once said the TARDIS was meant to have six pilots.

“The Stones of Blood” is the third adventure of the sixteenth season, known by the global title “The Key to Time”, which aired in 1978. It follows “The Pirate Planet” and it’s a four parts adventure written by David Fisher and directed by Darrol Blake.
The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Mary Tamm) locate the third segment of the Key of Time on Earth, near a megalithic circle that two local archaeologists are studying. While attempting to identify the segment they have to deal with some apparently supernatural phenomena.
The Doctor must investigate a Druidic cult and megaliths that move on their own and feed on blood, and both he and K-9 risk their lives. Romana thinks that the Doctor wants to kill her, what is the truth?
