What is a "Male presenting Timelord"? And, "something a man wouldn't understand"? I mean, he has only been a Timelord for longer than either Donna and Rose existed, and then some. It's this Chibnall level writing that concerns me for the future. Unless there is a big improvement in the quality of the writing, I will probably drop out of watching again.

I can't believe this is from the same writer who gave us the Yana twist from Utopia.
Tbh I think they wanted to make thst point but I feel they won't do it later on . I do agree him being a male again makes him not understand was werid all they had to do was let go was an odd one I prefer putting in a hand again .

I'm still looking forward to the new era next episode will be darker to

That scene of Donna remembering everything and David & Cahterine's acting.

I like Rose too and it was funny every time Rose was called, 14 was like "WHAT?" The Meep was indeed cute until it wasn't anymore and I just want the creature gone. The whole thing with that storyline was a bit weak imo and I feel like The Meep was easy to defeat BUT given that these are specials and we're only getting 14 and Donna for 3 eps then it's okay. Overall it was a good episode and there was a lot of fighting and action too.

I lwish we got more of Rose. And the TARDIS!!! I love it! Nothing too fancy or crazy and I like the simple design.
Lol the what what what ! Bit was my favourite their friendship has always been amazing ..

I do agree they defeated the Meep was to easily but I feel he will be back I think .

When Doctor said it broke his heart to say goodbye to her

The tardis is cool and the new sonic screw driver magic is great lol

I agree the line of a man couldn't understand was a bit annoying. I can overlook it though when most of the episode was so well done. I love the new Tardis interior as well.

I'm seeing a lot of negative backlash in reviews, but I don't really understand why. Is having a trans character, and discussing pronouns so weird? This is a reflection of the world we live in now. I know a number of trans people, and I'm sure there are plenty who have preferences with regard to pronouns, including one of David's children. These things shouldn't be plot points, and maybe they overegged the pudding a little, but it was a small part of the episode.

It's not weird, it's just badly implemented into the story. A human, a HUMAN, is going to question the Doctors misuse of pronouns. The Doctor has been all over human history, (not to mention all the other lifeforms of all kinds that he or she has been across all regenerations) so would be more progressive than any human in that story. The Doctor is made to make that faux pas, just for a bit of preachy finger wagging. It reeks of shallowness.

I like the pronounce talk cause tbh it is hard to know. I think thst bit the non binary thing has a lot of people effy as we knew it would but that's what the point was . I kind of like some of it not all of it cause of be said in a much more smarted way but I dont mind it .

Yeah I don't understand the backlash for the ep? I enjoyed it overall and we've had other boring eps of the show than this imo. If I'm going to nitpick, it was just that the villains were easy to defeat and they didn't pose as much of a threat to humans. Everything else was good.

I feel like we just went back to S4 and continued on from there. It's great to see Donna having a nice life but I felt sad when she said that there's something missing in her life but that was because she couldn't remember the Doctor.

Not gonna lie: I'm personally frustrated by comments like "I feel like we just went back to S4 and continued on from there" because the episode made a point of explicitly establishing (as it should have) that Ten and Fourteen are not the same incarnation.

Well everyone has their own feelings about it. Yes, they are different, but the feeling is the same for certain people not all that's ok

Omg! That was so good! It was so creepy, and tense. Great storytelling. I just loved it.

Great to see Bernard back one last time.
