As to the social message preaching this season, l am more annoyed by 3 companions than the preaching. In my view of the Who universe, the Doctor has ONE companion. If it was Whittaker and Yaz, I think I'd enjoy the season more. On the other hand, while I liked Whittaker in Broadchurch, she still hasn't won me over as the Doctor. I wish they could have found a way to make Alex Kingston the 1st female Doctor. Besides River Song, I liked Kingston in Chasing Shadows and think she would have made a great Doctor. I even think Yaz would have made a good Doctor.
