Watching Doctor Who: Season Twelve

They’re putting Tom in the TARDIS now…

I’m currently watching the classic series of Doctor Who on Britbox, attempting to watch all 26 series 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 and series 11. I’m collecting my thoughts as I go in a Twitter thread.

Up to this point, the Doctor had been played by generally known actors. While they may have been playing somewhat against type, Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee all…




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.
