It’s been off our screens for just over a year, but it feels like forever. Series 11 has been a long time coming, and it’s about time. The show returns with a new showrunner in Broadchurch's Chris Chibnall, a new Sunday night timeslot and, of course, a brand new Doctor.
Jodie Whittaker has stepped into the shoes of the Doctor, replacing Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord (now Lady) and getting a few new friends in the process. With a new showrunner, a new Doctor, new companions, and a new theme, the show has well and truly regenerated, and it's left looking a heck of a lot better, if not entirely flawless.
8. The Production Value
Now we knew that Chibnall and co. had gone all out on the new series, but blimey. The new lenses, sets, the lighting; this has made Doctor Who look the best it has ever looked.
Remember when you first watched Day of the Doctor, a special the BBC threw a ton of money behind since it was a big event? It all looked so sleek and crisp, and this is the aesthetic we’ll be getting for the next nine episodes of the series. It looks utterly gorgeous.
Born in Theatre, sits at a Computer. After over a decade of tinkering with Video Editing software, Rich gets to spend his precious time editing whatever's thrown at him. Also the go-to for Doctor Who, and could tell you why Sans Serif fonts are better than most. Still occasionally tap dances under the desk.
