I have not yet watched the new season of Doctor Who because the last season was so terrible. Maybe not terrible, but not particularly good. The three years with the previous Doctor were not great either, but the show redeemed itself in his third season.
Ten years ago this show was brilliant. It had a story arc that was amazingly epic. The Matt Smith years as Doctor Who were the best, because he had the best stories, although David Tennant is a close second.
It has been on an uneven decline since then. The old show runners have long since departed, and the show has lost its magic.
The series started with great promise, but it spent 4 seasons mostly being a soap opera while the main story advanced very slowly. As I watched the final episode, my first impression was the story had not advanced much beyond the end of season 3. However, the show figured out a way to conclude the series properly in the last 10 minutes. The final scene is a little confusing and I'm not sure exactly what it is supposed to mean, but I suspect that it is a cliffhanger for a possible TV movie.
I did find it entertaining. This is a very much character-driven story, and there are several characters whose arcs are significant. However, I was expecting something a little more exciting in a science fiction sort of way, and the show never gets there. Instead, by mostly focussing on characters and drama, the show doesn't achieve the full potential of its premise.
When downloading videos, I have found 720P to be pleasant to watch. Rarely are higher resolutions available, nor helpful, and my 5K monitor is a multiple of 720P.
Standard Definition, tube TV's, are 480i, therefore many of the cheap channels broadcast reruns in 480p or 480i. They look terrible. I assume that reruns are limited to this resolution. Most of them were recorded on tape which is 480i.
Some shows, like Star Trek The Next Generation were recorded on film and therefore capable of higher resolution, but not Star Trek Voyager.
