Doctor Thirteen & Sketchcards

Well… this is not really the place for a debate on the issue, but frankly I’m not at all happy with or impressed by the current incarnation of Ye Doctor in Doctor Who series 11. I feel Jodie Whittaker is hopelessly miscast** and the series has been all-round terrible (with the bizarre exception of Bradley Walsh, I’m shocked to hear myself saying)—and I’m not particularly inclined to watch more of them. According to the current hipster strawman arguments, that makes me some kind of Alt Right Nazi with internalised misogyny. I assume most sane people realise the issue is slightly more nuanced…

Below Jodie, a couple of small sketchcards of monster characters I like whose names begin with H. Open to offers on those too!!

Chibnall’s writing is barely above first draft, yet more than half of the current season carries his byline. I certainly have no desire to waste any more of my time watching this tiresome dreck,
