Doctor Who fans all have the same complaint as series 13 kicks off with Halloween special

DOCTOR Who fans all had the same complaint after series 13 kicked off with a Halloween special.

Jodie Whittaker once again returned as the Time Lord and was joined by Mandip Gill and new companion, John Bishop.


The first episode of 'Flux' opened with Jodie and Mandip's character Yasmin hanging upside down from a gravity board as they were held captive by another villain.

The pair were surrounded by an acid ocean and were cuffed to the board by their ankles, however Doctor Who viewers were far from impressed with what they saw.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: "I don't understand how the #DoctorWho CGI looked better 10 years ago."

Others also took issue with the CGI, with another tweeting: "The first half of doctor who tonight feels like the effects budgets been slashed the pieces, the opening looked fake even for doctor who standards."

A third jibed: "I see Doctor Who still has abysmal special effects and costumes. It literally looks like a school play."

The comments come after former Time Lord Peter Capaldi, who played the Doctor before Jodie from 2013 to 2017 said the show had "props that fall to pieces".

While promoting his film The Suicide Squad, Peter, 63, compared it to the BBC show, telling Digital Spy: "Also there was more money, you know… [at] Doctor Who, we don’t really have enough — everything on Doctor Who falls to pieces, all of the props fall to pieces and the costumes have to be stuck together with duct tape and velcro and stuff… I like the kind of B-movie, kind of cobbled together, quality of it.

"You know that there’s never really quite enough money, but the ideas are often very special — that’s what I like.

"But it’s also nice to be somewhere where they do have enough money to make the monsters look… scary."

However, not everyone was underwhelmed by the special effects, with one viewer writing: "Doctor Who. Flux was scary, great special effects, it's the kind of debut Jodie Whittaker deserves and deserved #doctorwho".

Another added: "Wow that was amazing! The weeping angel sequence was terrifying and the flux cgi was stunning. What a perfect start to a hopefully great series!"

Doctor Who continues on Sunday, November 7 on BBC One.
