I see fans melting down on You Tube about the last season.  Anyone here agree with them?

Do they hate it?

It's been an uneven season--they clearly never figured out how to juggle three companions, there have been some odd choices on scripts, and the pacing of arc and non-arc episodes was off (and there really wasn't a consistent theme or mood across all of them either).

But I could well see some fans not liking the seemingly big shift in the show's world-building. It's kind of the return of the old Cartmel Plan in a new form.

Yeah, some ranting about 50 years of canon being undermined and such.  And apparently viewership is way down.

Iím a sci-fi guy but Dr Who never grabbed me.  But I keep seeing the videos in my YouTube feed.

Viewership is only down from last season, when it went way up. It's about on par with Capaldi's seasons.

I personally loved this season and the twist on the cannon. Fuck the haters.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Yeah, on balance, I think it freshens up the room and creates new story possibilities. It also gave Whitaker more to work with.

Notably the highest ratings of the season were for the episodes most closely connected to the revision of the mythos.

Among other things,
