Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker to leave Doctor Who in a trio of Specials

Yes, it was really bad luck for her. I won't say I'm a big fan, but mostly because of the really bad writing, not because of her acting.

Thank. God. 

Was not eager to have Chibnall in charge, to begin with, and he lived down to my worst expectations. I have no idea if Jodie would have made a good Doctor as Chibnall basically told her to ape Tennant and Smith. We never really saw her take on the role.

I hope it was a good lesson, and they'll just ask Moffat to return.
