Three episodes in to the 'new' Doctor Who (Jodie Whittaker) and each one worse than the last. The acting is ok-ish, although the new companions don't get a lot of chance to demonstrate it, but the show is let down by some terrible writing and the need to be so Politically Correct that it can't see beyond the end of its nose.

The show began it's latest decline after Jenna Coleman left Peter Capaldi. Bill and Nardol were very average companions to Capaldi's rather average Doctor - although admittedly Tennant and Smith were hard acts to follow. Then of course the Doctor became female. Absolutely no need for it at all, and no need for all the fuss about it either and it could have worked, but poor Jodie Whittaker has nothing to work with. They writers haven't actually given her a character.

Then there is today's Episode 3 - Rosa Parks. Why? Just make a documentary about her and the segregation issues in 1955 USA instead, not have a very boring episode with no jeopardy and a random unexplained bigoted time-travelling non-villain (oh how so very convenient). Then rub everyone's brains into the dust by ending with the Rosa Parks asteroid - was that all the woman was worth? A bloody asteroid! As a history lesson about Rosa Parks and segregation it didn't work. As an indication of the racism still prevalent in society today it didn't work. As an episode of what has been one of the most enduring and loved sci-fi series on British telly it didn't work. As an example of woolly thinking, abysmal characterisation, poor scriptwriting and bad TV it worked perfectly.
