I skipped watching everything from and including Capaldi’s last season, but I will probably try and watch this one. And I really like the kickback to the logo from Pertwee’s last season through to Baker #1’s second last season!
Only ever watched Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman. Kinda stopped watching a few episodes of the Peter Capaldi Doctor.
I did like Capaldi as the Doctor, but I stopped watching when they (continued to) made Davros a Sith knockoff. They even stole Vader’s “look at you with my own eyes” line…
Tennant was brilliant
I’m still amazed that it’s the 60th anniversary.

Let them think they’re in control. Told in real time, Hijack is a tense thriller that follows the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way to London over a seven-hour flight, and as authorities on the ground scramble for answers.
Looking forward to this - you know how I like a good British thriller. Also interested to see how the seven hours of flight time play out in real time on the screen…

Black Mirror (Season 6)
Netflix | 15 June
June 15th. We’re back in Black, with a hint of Red! The sixth season of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror returns with 5 ground-breaking new stories. The most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected season yet - only on NETFLIX.
Twisted tales that span eras — and terrors — deliver a myriad of surprises in this game-changing anthology series’ most unpredictable season yet.
I know what I’m watching over the long weekend…
I started watching it yesterday during my isolation. Up to season 3 now and loving it!
All I a saying is they did a brilliant job with the last season of Ted Lasso
I want more, I know there will not be any more
Agreed. Kid Redd and I watched the last episode last night as well and came to the same conclusion as you - want more, won’t get more. Hopefully there’s some decent spinoffs in the future - even if they’re shorter 6-8 episode mini-series things. Something around the Richmond Women’s Team could be good. Or Keeley’s PR company.
I would honestly settle for anything. It has been one of the best shows in a long time.
