The new season of Doctor Who, they’re now on Season 12, has not been well received at all by fans nor critics.
The reception to the previous season, Season 11, was not positive, however, it seems like this current season’s been even worse than the last one.
I honestly, was so happy when I heard that they’d cast Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor, and I really don’t think she’s been the problem.
The problem lies solely at the show’s new showrunner’s feet, Chris Chibnall, who’s responsible for the show’s scripts, which have been up to this point, awful.
Now, I will admit that I’m not up to date with Doctor Who Season 12, yet I have watched the first few episodes, and they were not good.
They were actually embarrassingly bad, and it’s been reflected in the show’s poor reviews and the huge dropoff in viewership it’s experienced recently.
Doctor Who Season 12’s audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is currently sitting at a terrible 14% which has set the record for the show’s worst score on the site since it came back in 2005.
Doctor Who Season 12 is not reviewing very well at all
It’s since been revealed that some user reviews on the popular aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes, have been deleted, and this is not a good look for either the show or the website itself.
Here’s what some users have said about their reviews of Doctor Who Season 12 being deleted on the site (via Cosmic Book News).
My rating keeps getting deleted, what the hell!? I’m a long time fan and Doctor who is my favorite show. I feel like this season doesn’t hit the mark. The writing is lackluster and they are ignoring continuity to repeat what has come before.
Well, I’m disappointed that my original rating was removed for no justifiable reason.
Very disappointing, it seems they learned nothing from reviews of season 11. I’m reposting this review, my first was removed.
This really shouldn’t be happening and it means that if Rotten Tomatoes is indeed deleting user reviews, then the show’s score could be much lower.
