Battle with monsters, lest ye become a monster
I liked the historical side of the Rosa Parks episode, but the villian wasn’t great as a character.
And that is how unenthusiastic I am, I don't even get the episodes in the right order.......the Rosa Parks ep might convince me, sounds good3 was the Rosa Parks episode which was excellent, maybe you missed that?
Spiders was 4, monument was 5, and 6 is tomorrow.
As for the season as a whole.. I'm not "not" feeling it, I just think it's a bit average. Jodie is excellent, the new companions (especial;ly Graham) are excellent, the special effects are showing where the money is being spent... but the scripts are not as exciting or involving as they could be.
Hopefully now the Chibnall episodes are over, someone else will have written something amazing.

And @reepbot, I haven't watched enough to even consider why I am not invested......and I need to give it a good go, and I haven't
A new job has been taking more of my time and thoughts
...I can see where you are all coming from with this... I think that when 'The Chibs' ended up 'inheriting' the job as the Whovian head honcho that because he might have been under immense pressure to do better than 'The Moff' that he may have been a tad bit worried about setting up the brand new version of the Whovian Universe and had written ALL of the episodes up until now just to establish the new Doctor and her companions as he wants them all to pan out to be just so that he gets it all right and working for other writers just so as not to stuff up his initial setup of how it is now... okay... he's done that now... there have been fantastic episodes and perhaps a couple that aren't... so be it... it's time for other writers to have their turns now starting with this week hopefully...It only took me five minutes to work out it was the writing that wasn't up to standard. The performances so far have been good.
I’m kind of glad they can now drop Christmas from the story. Though I guess people in the UK might enjoy that element more actually seeing it on Christmas Day. On Boxing Day it’s a bit like eating the leftovers.Oh that's sad.
Lunatic fan response: " OMG Chibnall HATES XMAS!!"!
More balanced response with one negative and one positive :
It breaks a tradition, and it's always something to look forward to
It's only an extra week to wait, and it won't have to be tied down to being Christmas-themed
...I thought the same reepbot my friend... as someone mentioned before... I think that Moffatt was afraid to break the tradition of a Christmas episode because of a possible backlash because I think that in the UK that people had the episode marked as a 'must watch' show at Christmas methinks!... I reckon good on The Chibs for having the balls to do it and to break with tradition at last... it's about time to be honest... not everyone goes out and celebrates New Years Eve so being that I'm one of them I'm quite happy to watch it to bring in the new year... it's a great idea for that reason alone for me lol!... cheers.The last three Christmas Specials weren't that Christmassy.
