Let’s stand up and give a big round of applause to Russell T Davies, David Tennant, and Catherine Tate for continuing to ruin Doctor Who.
The recent Special that aired Thursday happens to be the worst-rated Doctor Who episode of David Tennant’s career, as along with Davies and Tate, all three have sold out fans everywhere.
And make no mistake, they all knew what they are doing and it’s all intentional. It’s a big FU to the fans.
Update #2: Ratings bomb with Ncuti Gatwa bi-generation.
Russell T Davies, David Tennant, and Catherine Tate have sold out fans
The Doctor Who 60th anniversary special saw only 5.08 million viewers tune in, which is down remarkably from the Davies and Tennant’s “glory years” of Doctor Who that had the highest ratings, with episodes scoring north of double-digit millions.
The ratings are on par with the recent Jodie Whittaker era which also achieved the lowest ratings in the 60 years of the show.
So what happened?
Well, as I told you back in 2017 when Jodie Whittaker was first announced as the Thirteenth Doctor (and I received tons of backlash and name-calling), Doctor Who would go woke and destroy the franchise. What that means is, much like the new Special featuring the return of David Tennant, great storytelling would be out the door in favor of “sending a message.”
We’ve seen it infect and destroy all of our favorite franchises including Star Wars and Marvel (again, just as I said would happen years ago) and a lot of it has been due to Disney.
Following the Jodie Whittaker era completely failing, Whittaker regenerated back into David Tennant which seemed to suggest the series would go back on the right path. However, big-time sellout David Tennant only returned as bait-and-switch.
It was also announced that the BBC came to a big deal with Disney over distributing Doctor Who on Disney+.
So what happened is the BBC got that Disney money and Doctor Who doubled down. Instead of fixing things and going back to what the fans enjoyed, they stuck it to the fans even more in “The Star Beast” which aired Saturday.
Over the weekend #RipDoctorWho trended on Twitter, which is actually something I first coined in my Facebook posts to my 600,000+ fans years ago.
If you followed all the news and announcements from Davies, you saw this coming. If not, boy, were you in for a big surprise.
Doctor Who woker than ever
The episode features even more woke content than the Whittaker era. Yep, Doctor Who is dead and has been for years.
It features a trans actor who looks 30 years old playing the part of a 15-year-old trans boy/girl who lectures the thousand-year-old Timelord about pronouns (seriously).
Of course, it is also revealed the trans teen has the power of a Timelord, as the trans teen is Donna’s son/daughter.
And of course, the trans teen is OP as FK and is responsible for saving the day.
The episode also makes a point of stating men are bad, and that the Doctor is inferior because he is a male (of course).
The episode of the Special is also titled “The Star Beast” and the villain, much like the Doctor himself, also has two hearts — a clear indication that the Doctor who comes from the stars is really the star beast. Or another interpretation based on Davis’ douchery is the fans are the Star Beast.
The good news is at least they came out and revealed their true agenda with the first Special. So you don’t have to bother wasting your time with the next two specials featuring sell-outs David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
Following the three specials, Ncuti Gatwa takes over who is the first gay and Black actor to play the Timelord. Check. Check.
