Chris Chibnall, current showrunner of Doctor Who, opted to make the most recent series of the show a single story split into six parts. It was a decision I still admire; I’ll always appreciate efforts to try something different with the show. However, the season’s conclusion failed to deliver on all the promise of its early parts.
As I have so many thoughts, I decided I’d post them here. Consider this my first TV review on this blog.
Whilst I don’t spoil everything from the series in this review, there are some big things I either explicitly mention or hint at. I couldn’t really give my full opinion without some major spoilers. So if you’re not caught up, I’d recommend giving this review a miss. This is your one and only spoiler warning.
Also, I hope it goes without saying, but if you disagree with me and thoroughly enjoyed the series then that’s great. I sincerely love that for you. I’m happy to let you enjoy things if you’re content to let me not enjoy things.
One day, his wife — who had not grown up playing video games — asked if she could have a go at one of the games she had seen him play. Like any good content creator, Razbuten saw an opportunity. What better way to understand what gaming is like for someone who does not usually play video games than to see a non-gamer learn in real-time? All he had to do was watch and provide almost no instructions. And so began a series of informal experiments that raised many interesting questions about the language of video games.
