The Death of Doctor Who is clear to see yes, but the process is still ongoing. Even though the BBC and Chris Chibnall were convinced that their vision for the character and the series was going to win all-new audience demographics of minorities and young girls who were apparently turned off by the series featuring a leading man rather than a woman their logic and professionalism has been shown as being completely lacking in the event - as not only did those demographics never turn up, it is quite clear they never. even. existed!
But that's just one aspect. The colossal fall in the ratings and public support throughout the first season and then the second season is unprecedented for any past new Doctor and Producer, here Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker must both shoulder the blame as neither have been remotely good enough to ever make Doctor Who a success. When the standout person on the team turns out to be light-entertainment host Bradley Walsh it is time to pause and reflect on the reasons as to how and why that can be... the hard fact being he has shown to all that he is simply THAT good an actor and professional talent that he has shown the utter inadequacy and lack of passion and investment in all those around him - out of the lot of them he was the only one putting the effort in. And that's what shined through on the screen. He delivers a complete performance, an actors performance. A true character actor at work.
But all of that aside the reality is that this regime has nowhere to hide from its responsibilities. The BBC, Chris Chibnall, and Jodie Whittaker, they all must take the blame for killing Doctor Who.
Their choices and their lack of ability is what has been responsible for a near total collapse in support for the series both at home and overseas, and it is still ongoing. Just TWO seasons in and the series has not yet bottomed out, or even reached the bottom! By the time Chibnall and Whittaker do leave the series they steered and boasted about in the run-up to series 11, it will be beyond saving, as quite clearly there will be insufficient support or ratings to sustain its viability or allow a resuscitation by that point.
And it is all on them. All of them.
Think AMC has part ownereship in the BBC, just have them complete the deal and buy them out, and move the DR over here on the other side of your Pond!
The Dr meeting rick Grimes!
