Watching Doctor Who: Season Eighteen

(Almost) all change

I’m currently watching the classic series of Doctor Who on Britbox, attempting to watch all 26 seasons in 26 weeks. For my take on previous seasons: season 1, season 2, season 3, season 4, season 5, season 6, season 7, season 8, season 9 , season 10 , season 11, season 12 , season 13, season 14, season 15, season 16 and season 17. I’m collecting my thoughts as I go in a Twitter thread.

It was obvious that something was wrong before the episode itself even started. As far as eight-year-old me was concerned…




I’m watching the whole of Classic Doctor Who in six months, one season per week. This is where I’m collecting my thoughts as I go.
