I’m bummed for the long wait but that seems to be the way things are done these days. Doctor Who, Game Of Thrones, Better Call Saul, Stranger Things, My Brilliant Friend, Lost In Space, Sherlock, and a few others I watch. I don’t watch GoT, but I know they also have long breaks.
I’m ok with the breaks. TV in general these days is big budget Hollywood quality. Everything seems top notch because (I suspect) they take longer and put a lot of time & effort into the shows.
Regarding Doctor Who specifically; Very happy with this first season. It seemed to fly by. Only one more and we’re on our break. I don’t have strong thoughts one way or another on the Christmas episodes. They’ve been hit or miss quality-wise, so I don’t see it as a big deal that we’re getting a New Years episode instead.
I’m just glad we’re getting one more.
