I'm talking about Dr Who. It jumped the shark a long time ago with the introduction of Matt Smith and a ruck of incomprehensible storylines.
Nothing against Mr Smith, he can only follow the scripts and wave his arms about like a young Magnus Pyke. I lost it when Amy's baby burst like a tub of rancid yoghurt.
I had high hopes when it was announced that Peter Capaldi would be the new doctor, spurred on by the promises he would be a darker character. Let's face it, the previous one only appealed to 12 year olds who like to use words like cool the hide their inability to express themselves.
We're seven or eight episodes into the new series with Capaldi at the helm and the show like most Saturday night television is utter rubbish now.
The stories are going nowhere, they're even falling short on the teaser plotline of who is Missy.
An episode ends and you immediately forget what it was about, that's if you could understand what it was about in the first place.
I'm sure those easily entertained will disagree with me and indeed they are welcome to, but all I will say in my defence is compare any David Tennant episode with the Matt Smith or Capaldi offerings and you will see more depth, more story and better acting.
Last night's episode was tired. Shades of the Vashta Narada (Silence in the library) and a closing where he chased them off with the sonic screwdriver, something Clara could have done thirty minutes earlier in the episode if it really was that easy.
And I'm sure the merchandisers will be really pissed. No toy opportunities with this series (oh I'm sure they'll rustle up one or two). the series has been thin on merchandising opportunities.
Time to give it a rest.
