You know what's a better show than Dr. Who? Every show ever.
This was so boring, I'd rather have watched a Star Trek clip.
Oh, man, you sure showed those dweebs. You're defiantly going to be asked to sit at the cool table at lunch tomorrow.
Boring, poorly written, predictable, and expects the audience accept ridiculous plot elements.
I watched two or three episodes of the more recent iteration. In the second or third episode, on a space station, a sabotaging spider-sized robot presses a single button on the keyboard on the desk of some diplomat. This single button removes any and all protection from the elements outside the space station, killing the diplomat. Meaning, he was, at any time, a coffee spill or a typo away from instantly killing himself.
There were several examples more in the episodes I saw; That was just the one that sprang to mind. The writing can be clever at times, but that doesn't keep it from drowning in poor storytelling and often-detestable characters.
For a show that so many nerds gobble up, it certainly is ridiculously stupid.
Now, of course, those statements I made only apply to the third most recent doctor - The series that started out with the clothing warehouse employee as the doctor's "plus one."
Does it get better as the series goes on, or is it pretty consistent throughout the remaining episodes? I stopped at the third or fourth for the aforementioned reasons.
Speaking of special effects, those are pretty dodgy, so it doesn't exactly help distract.
Comeuppance - it's pretty consistently annoying tosh with maybe 3 really brilliant episodes per season.

The scarf deserves an equal share in the acting credit.
You should hear what the scarf was saying. It was very romantic.

This same speech is repeated five times an episode now. Badly.
