This originally was a Series 11 Discussion thread, but I've now edited the title to make it more inclusive. Beware of spoilers, sweetie!

BBC has confirmed that the 11th series featuring a new doctor, new companions, and a new showrunner will air on the 7th of October.

The title of the episode is "THE WOMAN WHO FELL TO EARTH".

Will you be watching?
For those who stopped watching Doctor Who because it felt stale - has the new direction the show is taking drawn you back?
How amazing is Jodie Whitaker going to be?

    Looking forward to it. Hopefully there is no political messages forced down the show. I quite enjoyed Capaldi's run, it wasn't that stale though. Heaven Sent is still the best episode of new DW.

    I will say, his only rough season was really his first one. The other two were a lot better. I really liked Bill & Nardole as companions.

    I'm looking forward to Jodie tho. She was fantastic in Black Mirror & Broadchurch.

    I never got over Clara leaving so I couldn't fully appreciate Nardole and Bill haha. Some adventures in S10 were pretty cool, though. S9 is probably still my favorite, except for perhaps S3 and second half of S7. Every season is great in its own way :)

    I am a bit afraid of getting disappointed with this new showrunner and Doctor, haha... I'm trying to not hope for too much d: I loved when DW was more realistic and down to earth, yet silly, in S1-4. S5-7 were more silly and plastic and detached, and S8-10 became a strange mix of artificial and super grim at times. I missed Martha sighing at her family or Donna bantering with her mother.

      I'm super looking forward to it, been a fan of Doctor Who for 13 years now.

      I get that it changes, and I know I may not like the changes.
      If I don't I keep watching, and just tell myself in 3-4 years time, everything will change once more. So, maybe it'll get better.

      I wish Jodie the best of luck with her first season as the Doctor, and will be watching the whole way. Her first season maybe a bit stale, but they always are.

        For 12th and 10th doctors, their first seasons were a mixed bag. But 9ths first and only season was fantastic, and kept the revival show going due to its success. Matt Smith's first season, series 5 was his best. Series 6 and series 7 tried to be grand with its plots but most of series 5 was just Doctor adventuring with Amy and later Rory.

        I'm looking forward to this!

        I stopped watching after the 11th Doctor regenerated since the 12th wasn't my cup of tea, but I'm definitely watching this season. I just have more to look forward to w/this interesting change.

        Agree, in fact, Matt Smith's very first episode is one of my absolute favorites ^^ The Eleventh Hour just does so so many things right, and Smith feels like the Doctor from the very start.

        Wow those clips from Series 1-4 are so HD. I actually went and pulled them up on Amazon, and they still have a bit of graininess.

        It was certainly a fabulous trailer and I really hope John Barrowman comes back to DW now

          At last, a Doctor I can have a crush on. :P

          For a first episode of a new cast and crew, I thought it was excellent.

          I loved the new mix of the ending music. It was lovely to hear something that hearkened back to the old style. I always felt most of the recent versions of the theme were a bit to bombastic and lacked the feeling of mystery that Delia gave us.

          I always try my best to avoid spoilers of any kind, so it was fun meeting all these characters for the first time.

          I can't wait until next week.

          PS: Hello. :)

            It's been a while, but the Series is over now.
            We have to wait until New Year's for the mysterious episode titled: Resolution.
            and then it's the big wait till 2020. (This is 2016 all over again.)

            How did this Series do it for you?
            What was the best episode, which was the worst?
            Is Jodie a good Doctor?

            I really enjoyed this series, a nice refresh after what was becoming very predictable TV. Jodie is probably my favourite new who dr now, and my particular favourite episode might be Kerblam!, the spiders one was definitely the worst

            Jodie did fantastic with what she was given. Just wish there were more references to Gallifrey and being a Time Lord. And that we didn't have to wait until 2020 for the next series. >_>

            Jodie did well. This series was very lighthearted and had too many episodes on earth but I stopped watching because of the convoluted mess Moffat turned the show into so it was a refreshing and much needed change.

            Graham is the best companion, followed by Yaz, then Ryan.

              I agree.
              I know they said they'd be no past enemies.
              But, it feels like there was no important past references at all.

              We got a few minor references, Peter Capaldi being Scottish, Agatha Christie Reference, etc.
              But, nothing to link it with the other Series' in my opinion.

                Did anyone catch Resolution?

                I think that was a superb episode, omg.

                  I won't say too much, but to me, the best Dalek episode since The Stolen Earth/Journey's End

                  Right, so that episode was the best of the whole series. And it's honestly one of the best Dalek stories in quite a long time.

                  So, I've got some thoughts.

                  Series 11 was pretty OK. Sadly, just ok. I was honestly hopeful for something pretty exceptional as I was excited for all the big changes, but I think overall this series was pretty underwhelming. Bad? Not really. Just underwhelming. I love Jodie as the Doctor but she definitely needs to grow into the role some more before I could call her a fave.

                  The dynamic between Ryan and Graham is fantastic but Yaz basically might as well not exist. She has had no real character development, is fairly redundant in most of the stories and will honestly go down as super forgettable unless they fix her next series, which is a shame because I don't think she's a bad actor, just poorly written. On the contrary, Graham is absolutely one of my favourite companions the show has produced, so there's two sides to that coin.

                  The monsters of this series were perhaps the worst part. Too many "we're not actually evil" type deals going on here. That's why, for me, Resolution was easily the best episode of the series. A proper villain, and a returning one to really amp up that excitement factor? It was good, and honestly I think it's fair to consider this the finale of series 11 rather than episode 12.

                  Some work needs to be done, but they have some good ideas and good characters to work with. I'm hoping series 12 will bring more consequences, more threat and more development for our characters that still don't quite feel right.
