    You have the right to turn the telly to another channel when Matt Baker's on, but as you're only one of several millions of licence payers, why should you have the right to sack him? My mum thinks he's lovely.

    I thought it was really, really good. I’m a generally uncritical audience anyway (I survived Time and the Rani, Sylvester McCoy’s godawful debut story) but I liked the look and feel of the first episode. It delivered what it promised: a stepping on point for people who haven’t watched it before and a returning point for people who had given up on the timey-wimey, confusey-woosy Steven Moffat era. I know at least two people who fall into the latter category who watched the new episode and said they loved it. It definitely had a more Russell T Davies vibe about it and I thought Jodie Whittaker was great, a very assured debut, very 'Doctor-ish', brushing off the gender change in a throwaway line as if it didn't really matter (because y'know, it doesn't really matter). The straightforward storytelling was refreshing. The closing credits were unusual, bigging up the forthcoming guest actors by name, but I guess it’s a statement of intent about how they are doing things quite differently now. Overnight viewing figure of 8.2 million and the generally positive reaction on social media suggests this show still has a good few years left in it yet.

    Forum server problems...

    A bit of maintenance that took way longer than expected and with several unscheduled breakdowns (technical, plus mental and emotional on my part whenever this happens). I think it's all ok now. (Famous last words)
