I totally agree. I liked Jodi Whitaker's version of the Doctor. She was quirky and fun and reminded me a lot of David Tennant. And I had nothing against Peter Capaldi.
(But I still think Ecclestein is my favorite.)
The writing lately, however.... yeah. It's just gotten worse and worse from season to season, IMO. There have been so many missed opportunities. I have to wonder if the current writers/producers have ever watched the early episodes. You can't really blame the actors when they don't have anything good to work with.
