Fake Doctor Who Is "Quitting" the Soon-To-Be-Cancelled Show

Yes I know: Not only is this about a frivolous topic -- a tv sci-fi show -- but it's about a tv sci-fi show that everyone stopped watching two years ago.

Still, let us note again the Iron Law: Get Woke, Go Broke.

Doctor Who is now hitting its all time lowest ratings. They just had a "Festive Special."

They used to have a Christmas special, but now it's on New Years Day, not Christmas, so they call it a Festive Special.

When former companion Billie Piper asks why it's no longer on Christmas, former Doctor Matt Smith accidentally tells the truth and says, "I don't know, I guess it's been demoted."

Ding ding ding ding ding ding ding.

That is correct.

Whereas the Christmas Special used to get ratings in the 12 million, 13 million range, the latest "Festive Special" got... 4.69 million.

The absolute lowest of the rebooted Doctor Who.

And so, it's about time to finally admit what was obvious three years ago: Fake Doctor Who is a complete failure.

The putative star of Fake Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, is reportedly "quitting" the show.

And the BBC isn't denying it.

Is she quitting or is she fired? Probably something like "quitting to avoid being fired."

Being a high-profile failure for more than three years straight isn't good for anyone's career.

For three years, the media has colluded to lie that the show was not just good, but among the best versions of itself ever.

Because they couldn't admit that Woke Doctor Karen was a failure.

Now that the ever-falling ratings make it impossible to maintain that lie, the media switches to a new tack: Yes the show is awful, but it's the BBC's fault, not Jodie Whitaker's.

The BBC has failed Doctor Who, and Jodie Whittaker – no wonder she's quitting

Flat, worthy and woke, the unlucky 13th Doctor's adventures have been a criminal waste of this talented actress – and caused a ratings slide

...

The 13th Doctor’s adventures were often flat, worthy and woke - often starting promisingly but soon disappearing up their own time-space continuum. In the midst of mediocre writing, Whittaker was unable to carve out a strong identity. She was neither frightening, fierce nor funny like previous incumbents. Yes, she had warmth and fizzing energy but that wasn’t enough to fully flesh her out.

Instead she was made slightly socially awkward and needy, forever talking about friendship, trying to make her "fam" catch on, cracking corny jokes and straining to be down with the kids. It’s like a lack of confidence in the character becoming female found its way into the uneven writing. She was made tomboyish and surrounded by men so her femininity didn't scare the horses. Unfortunately, all this achieved was to drain her of originality and dilute Whittaker's undoubted charisma.

I doubt her charisma. In fact, I flatly deny it.

Oh the BBC, and the producer, and the writers, all contributed mightily to this pile of woke failure.

But so did Jodie Whitaker. Not only does she not have a speck of intelligence in her eyes and no gravitas in her personality, but she decided to introduce herself to the Doctor Who fandom by announcing that all previous Doctor Who was sexist.

She's a vapid, moderately-attractive dope trying to play a swaggering immortal adventurer.

Of course, you can't blame an actress for being completely unsuited for a part. You blame the idiot who hired her.

In this case, it was worthless failure beta male showrunner Chris Chibnall who not only hired her but insisted the BBC hire her.

And the BBC is threatening that they're keeping him on for next season.

However, the truth is:

1, they're not keeping him on. They just don't want to admit the enormity of their failure all in one go. So they're claiming that Jodie Whitaker is quitting by her own decision now, but that Chibnall's staying on, because he's so great and has produced such good television. And then, in a couple of months, whoops, he's "moving on" too.

2, they're not keeping anyone on, because the show is such a calamity that they'll have to cancel it for a decade until the filthy stink of the Chibnall/Whitaker era dissipates.

Meanwhile, the Star Trek franchise has likely been killed for an entire generation thanks to the Cult of Wokeism, and Star Wars is mostly dead (only partly alive due to the intervention of Toxcially Masculine director Jon Favreau).

But they'll keep on doing it.
