Last I watched he resurrected all the past companions that had died on Earth to torture and kill them off in the way he wanted
I don't remember that story at all. ...unless you're talking about the two-parter season finale with Missy.
While I haven't seen much of Hartnell's era, I never got the feeling from what others had said of it that he was particularly sexist, he may have been grumpy and harsh in his dialogue at times, but it was directed equally to his male and female companions, with there possibly being a softer edge when talking to his granddaughter, Susan. I hope Bleeding Cool's impression is just a mistake on their part, but I wouldn't put it past Moffat to screw something else up.
*Shrug* I just remember it was very convoluted with Cybermen & Missy.
Yeah, early on The Doctor greatly disliked humans. But the early companions really helped shape him into valuing life & being heroic. Shaking off the instilled Time Lord superiority. I guess I really liked that despite his grumpiness and such he still decided to steal a TARDIS and bring his granddaughter along.
Chibnall seems good at keeping the plot from what I've seen. I didn't like the ending of the Silurians two-parter because it was a letdown from the exciting first episode. I don't remember much of "Torchwood" or his other episodes. I used to binge watch "Life On Mars" so I don't have specific memories of his episodes there. I haven't watched "Broadchurch" but I remember reading how he made detailed charts for each character. So hopefully he will do well.
Again; I'm really hoping this will be a nice fresh start to the past few seasons. I'm indifferent that the Doctor will be a woman just as long as she keeps the spirit of the character. All we can really do is wait and see how it goes when her episodes start airing! I think they probably know what they're looking for in casting now. Like I remember many didn't like Eccleston especially the look of leather jacket & buzzed hair. But he ended-up being my favourite.
Actually posting on this thread has made me more likely to watch next season when it airs and I'm more excited.
