These are my "unpopular opinions" (idea credited to Trailer Drake on YouTube) about Doctor Who 2005. Now, these might be controversial so PLEASE be respectful in the comments!
Michelle Gomez is a FAR better Master than John Simm. Simm was fine, but he was too over the top for me to properly enjoy.
The Weeping Angels are not that scary. They’re creepy, sometimes startling as well as being creative monsters and I’m glad they exist but they aren’t terrifying to me as they are to a lot of other people.
Going with the above, the Midnight Entity is THE scariest thing from New Who! Why? Well, we know next to nothing about it, it uses psychological horror instead of jumpscares and I just thought that it was really memorable.
I didn’t like the Twelfth Doctor at first. It wasn’t because of his stories but because of his personality. I mean, letting people die (Into the Dalek), being an arrogant ass, being really rude and inconsiderate overall and mostly, how unfair he treated Danny just REALLY threw me off of his character, at least until Series 9!
Clara Oswald was a great character, as was River Song. I don’t think they’re too perfect or boring at all!
Steven Moffat is a great writer. He isn’t perfect and generally speaking, his stories during RTD’s era were better, but I don’t think he’s a “horrible showrunner” or that he “ruined” Doctor Who at all!
Seb and Dr. Chang are totally underrated as characters.
Love and Monsters, Hell Bent, Sleep No More, Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks, Fear Her, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship and Robot of Sherwood, while not perfect, were very enjoyable episodes!
To be perfectly honest... I’m a little annoyed by the implication that Clara said “I love you” to Twelve in the Cloisters during Hell Bent. I mean, she promised Danny she would never say those words to anyone else ever again! Promised him! I mean, I ship Whouffaldi just as much as the next person, but seriously?! A promise is a promise!
Danny Pink and his relationship with Clara during Series 8 were both great. Danny brought a sense of “normalcy” to the show and to Clara. It obviously wasn’t perfect but I thought that Moffat really pulled it off! Yes, you heard that right.
The Cybermen are very boring as villains.
Well, there you go. Those are my unpopular New Who opinions. What did you think? Do you agree or disagree with me? What about your unpopular opinions on Doctor Who - classic or revival? Leave a comment telling me! :) But again, PLEASE be respectful!
Peace off! :)
