You can drop Hartnell to Capaldi into any Doctor Who
episode pre Twice Upon a Time and you would notice any difference.

Since Chibnall took over , this is no longer the feeling.

Weren't some posters dissing "Crapaldi's" acting skills, and/or bemoaning the bad scripts, and/or denouncing his episodes as bigoted against white male heterosexuals, and/or dissing the very idea of a lesbian Companion (Bill)?

Yes, and the ratings were slipping then, hence the major shake-up by the BBC which has upset fans who have "hardening of the fandom."

And hence more of a bad gambit.

I don't understand what you're saying. What makes you think you can't notice any difference now?

What makes you think he did? All Tim did was turn it into something that made sense. Which may or may not be what you intended to say.

Because he did.

I think if you dropped Hartnell or Capaldi into a Tom Baker story, or a Colin Baker story, you'd notice the difference right away.

Each Doctor has brought their own personality into the character.

Robot shows it with the emphasis on UNIT and Bessie showing up for a penultimate appearance.

Genesis may have started with Pertwee in mind, but Tom made it uniquely his.

Still interchange Pertwee and TBaker.

Fair enough, and you don't feel T. Baker or Pertwee would have fit in the giant ant story? Or "Kablam?" Or even the race story where the goal turned out to be the TARDIS? More importantly, does the story have to be so cookie-cutter that any Doctor could be plugged in and it still works?

I haven't seen all the stories they've made this season, but I like the ones I've seen so far.

Would Jodie fit in the giant ant story (Planet of Giants, The Web Planet)?
