    @tv-talk with all the “cuteness” of The Master regenerating into Missy and the nonsense where Moffat went overboard with her being a woman, I so appreciate that WhitDoc didn’t do that. 13 got on with it and didn’t rail against men or whatever and only got annoyed with the woman thing when people tried to prevent her from doing something because she was female, like in Witchfinders. I hope that makes sense

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8835943/doctor-who-pc-storylines-history/ Frazer Hines, the 2nd Doctor’s Companion Jamie, gets clickbaited by the Sun and their article totally twist his words. He apparently comments to someone that he prefers monsters to historicals and serials to stand alones. The Sun then turns that into him slamming the current bosses and saying the current show is too PC. Frazer comments on Twitter ( @WhoFrazer) refuting the Sun’s interpretation and saying he doesn’t even recall talking to them (he could have talked to a freelancer). The Sun and some others really seem to be against the current show and it seems to love twisting words
  7. http://cultbox.co.uk/news/doctor-who-series-12-filming-in-tenerife More foreign location shooting. Several of the cast and film crew have been spotted in or flying into Tenerife in the Canary Islands

    http://cultbox.co.uk/news/scene-from-doctor-who-episode-rosa-shortlisted-for-bafta-must-see-moment-award Alas,Doctor Who Series 11 got only one nomination for the 2019 Bafta TV Awards, the public-voted Must See Moment, for the episode Rosa, where Rosa refuses to give up her seat. Killing Eve and Bodyguard seem to be sucking up all the nominations and awards this year
  10. Some updates and speculation on filming: Some fan photos with the cast and fans watching filming show Tosin and Brad in tuxes and Mandip in dark clothes and possibly tux-like doing one or more scenes and at least one scene observed by a fan with Ryan and Yaz having to ditch their phones. See the link below for pictures http://cultbox.co.uk/general/doctor-who-series-12-bradley-walsh-tosin-cole-and-mandip-gill-filming-in-barry There are fan photos with Jodie and pictures of the cast for World Down Syndrome Day that suggests Jodie is currently wearing a darker costume (she wears a puffy jacket in the fan pictures that covers a lot of it, but enough peeks through), with speculation and theories that the Doctor is wearing something like a tux, possibly for just the episode they are currently filming since the rest of the cast are in tuxes. See the pictures in the links below http://cultbox.co.uk/news/doctor-who-series-12-cardiff-stands-in-for-paris-for-a-night-shoot-with-jodie-whittaker https://twitter.com/shabangtheatre/status/1108314487839514625?s=21 https://twitter.com/shabangtheatre/status/1108112578276921345?s=21 There was a night shoot that suggested the area was made to look like Paris, so possibly a story is set in France. The set design in the first production block seen by fans suggested some spy or intelligence plot that might possibly be set in WWII A guest actress for the first production block (Episode 1 and possibly 5) has been identified as Molly Harris playing Suki Cheng

    Doctor Who in the Media

    https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/britbox-doctor-who-love-island-3666149 It looks like the Britbox streaming service is coming to the UK. The article says that British shows like Doctor Who will be made available on the service and that it’s likely previous seasons of New Who will no longer be available on Netflix UK. I’ve seen speculation that current seasons of Who could eventually be shown on Britbox first
  14. I wouldn’t care one way or the other as long as it doesn’t hurt ratings and BBC America shows it the same day as the UK. The funny thing is, Saturdays in the US is terrible for ratings for scripted shows, where for the UK, they seem to still be pretty decent
  15. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6749705/Doctor-set-MAJOR-shake-ahead-Series-12.html The Daily Mail is claiming the BBC is considering moving the show back to its old Saturday slot for Series 12 in a bid to retain younger viewers. Given it’s the Daily Mail and it’s still pretty early, I would consider this strictly rumor at this point. Plus their article title way overstates things with “set for major shakeup”
