Seems like the writers are younger and probably female.
Most of the attention seems to have gone away from the Dr and towards the women in the program.
Women's lib seems to be affecting the writing and storyline as it seems to mostly about them and the Dr gets treated like an imbecile. Most of the previous female companions were great and really added to the stories.
Clara's addition does not. Perhaps it should be renamed Dr Clara. :(.
The story lines seems to be written by writers who are clueless about the Dr Who series. Young writers with little imagination and no experience, just trying to get attention.
This new series sucks, and that is probably why it got so damn much press before it started. (Trying to put lipstick on a pig)
You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.
