There were some good stories in the McCoy era but, by then the lack of investment in the show was making it look very dated.

A hiatus for Who wouldn't hurt. There isn't really the public attention or affection for sci-fi fantasy shows which just run for ever and ever.

It's also gotten to 10 seasons by now, which is in itself rare for sci-fi series.

Don't know how accurate this is:
The series will contain ten episodes, down from twelve episodes in the three previous series. Each episode is expected to run for 50 minutes, with a feature-length 65-minute premiere.

finally got my grubby hands on a series 10 box, liking it so far (episode 3) having some difficulty with the accents though.

:lol:

and, yes, i preferred series 10 to 9 as well, though 9 had pockets of brilliance, i felt 10 was more consistent....

The Ood one out:

Someone made an excellent Star Trek joke about it:
"There ARE...THREE...OOD!"

Hence the statement: There are three Ood! (and nothing else)

Multiple companions perhaps? Not sure how I feel about that....

no perhaps about it - there's 3 of them and they're referred to as friends...chibnall's basically going for a soft reboot - no 2/3 parters either, all standalone

Disappointing to hear.

First female Doctor and she can’t handle things on her own?
Or at least with only one companion?
I hope they made shure it doesn’t look like that.
