Top Ten Things We Want to See in Doctor Who Season 12Season 12 is coming very fast. It premiers on New Year's. The last two seasons have been disappointing (still really good, but just not up to standard). Let's look at some things we want to see next season.
The Top Ten
Last season their was no story. They have already implied that their is a plot this year and it won't just be a bunch of random stories bunched together like last year.
I personally think last season had a really good story arc.
Last season had no good villians besides in the Special which featured the Daleks. In the trailer it looks like this year will be a lot better. I saw the Cybermen, the Racnoss, and the Judon.
I thought we had some really good villians. Others not so much.
This one is a lot like number one. All the episodes last year were random. I want to see a plot that they stick to and develop throughout the season. And this leads to my fourth one.
We definitely had a running plot.
Apparently on the set of Doctor Who, Civilians were finding Vote Saxon signs posted everywhere. That is obviously a reference to Season 3, where Harold Saxon turned out to be The Master, one of the Doctor's most famous villians. This could just be a publicity act, but maybe not. Even if he doesn't appear this season, maybe next year.
The Master was on the top of his game last year. I was very impressed with Sacha Dhawan and while I don't think he should come back next year, I do definitely want him back at some point.
He actually came back!
This is why I like the one companion system. I feel like it will take time to develop every character and honestly we just don't have the time to watch that. I would much rather watch a one or two companion system like Rose, Martha, Donna, Amy and Rory, and Clara. Three is just too much. All these companions seem like good characters and they've got good potential, but they just aren't being developed.
This is something we didn't get. Even if their was one, it was weak.
I also want to see them introduce the next companion. A lot like how they introduced Clara. I'm not saying add a 4th companion, but maybe just introduce the character.
I don't think this happened.
The first episode of Season 6 started with a bang. Someone killed the Doctor setting up a plot for the rest of the season. I want to see bold stuff like that this year. It is Jodie Whitaker's second season and when you bring a Doctor back with their companions you have to do something bold. This has only happened twice. The example I just used in Season 6 and in Season 9 and that is the season The Doctor went to Gallifrey.
They definitely took big risks.
Last year had two not good historical episodes. Rosa had potential, but it disappointed and the King James one was trash. Demons of Punjab was good. I want to see really good historical episodes though. Their is already one confirmed and it is about Edison and Tesla. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint.
We had some really good historical episodes. I loved both Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror and The Haunting of Villa Diodati.
Every season of new Doctor Who has one super creepy episode. Orphan 55 is their hyped up creepy episode. It will be the 3rd episode. Developers have put it up their with Blink and Midnight. It has potential and I'm hoping it will scare the crap out of me.
Orphan 55 sucked.
Every Doctor it New Who has made a mark in some way. Christopher Eccelston was battle worn, but still had a great sense of humor. Always happy until he sees a Dalek. David Tennant was hilarious, serious, intelligent, and dark all at the same time and of course all the epic moments and allons-y. Matt Smith was known for his great speeches and humor and his classic Geranimo. Peter Capaldi was old and cynical and also some good speeches. What is Jodie Whittaker?
I mean it was better than Season 11. Their is room for improvement though.
