Screenrant and others are reporting the Lady Doctor might be on the way out as Chibnall is not a happy bunny at all the criticism.

The article doesn't say that at all.
It says that Chibnall is allegedly unhappy about how the show is run behind the scenes and that if he left because of it she would go with him.

Lets hope Chibnall is leaving, before taking over the show he had written some of the worst to dullest episodes since the relaunch in 2005 and don't forgot the cyberwoman ep on torchwood (must do want to forget)

I gave the last ep a watch and not as bad some of this series I've seen but it could of been so better like others have put. At least it was not smug and preachy "Fisher Price history for kids"

I feel like Jodie's getting too much leeway in amongst the crappy scripts.

Her version of The Doctor is basically Paul Whitehouse's "Brilliant!" character from The Fast Show - all wide eyes and gaping mouth. She's endearing enough but hardly a must-watch presence.

Interesting that Eccleston left because he didn't like the way things were ran behind the scenes and now Chibnall, we seem to have come full circle.

Wonder if all the political correctness comes from Chibnall or behind the scenes, I suspect Chibnall, he stated from the outset he wanted a lady doctor and knows someone with dyspraxia.

Alan Cumming looked like he was having fun chewing the scenery, but otherwise it was quite dull until they introduced the actual threat in the last ten minutes.

I physically winced during Cumming's introduction as my Camp-o-meter went off the scale, but thankfully I grew to like his performance quickly, especially his initial dialogue with the Doctor.

The episode however, was standard old-school Who. Watchable but instantly forgettable...

I think I'm three maybe even four episodes behind.

Which says it all really

Will probably catch up this week. To be honest I'm way behind on a lot of tv right now. Not much is really grabbing me.

Another episode for me where it started OK and had potential and then blew it once the actual threat turned up.

Also, did I miss the episode where they explained why no one comments on the Doctor and companions' clothes any more ?

Yeah, the clothing aspect is very rarely mentioned anymore. Also annoying that in recent episodes, the magical ID has come to the rescue. Such a lazy option for the writers, along with the sonic screwdriver...

It was OK. Pretty dark to start with and it crammed too much into the ending, but it was one of the better ones this year. From a pretty low point.

I commented to mate a good actor is able to convey more than one emotion simultaneously, she seems to struggle with one. Felt no threat or peril from her in this episode, she is always the same.

They commented on their clothes in this episode.

Has Alan Cumming ever been able to act, by the way, or has being camp always been enough to get him by in showbiz?
