The popular show has arrived for a new 10-part series, with actress Jodie Whittaker returning for her third season as the titular Doctor.
During last night's (01.01.20) episode, the star swapped her trademark rainbow print T-shirt for a tuxedo in a James Bond-style opener that saw the Time Lord racing to unravel an evil plot against intelligence agents.
But not everyone enjoyed the first installment of the new series - and many on Twitter claimed that Bradley Walsh's character, Graham, was the only good thing about it.
One tweeted: "Thank goodness for Bradley Walsh and the last five minutes of the episode because otherwise that was a disaster."
Only good thing is Bradley Walsh.
Another wrote: "I've seen [better] acting at 3am on the Horror Channel ffs. Bradley Walsh is the ONLY good thing about S11 and S12 of #DoctorWho."
A third put: "The only good things about [showrunner Chris] Chibnall's #DoctorWho are the theme music and Bradley Walsh."
"Don't think I've ever watched a episode and been so bored after only 15 minutes. The series hasn't been great since Matt Smith left," said a fourth, adding: "Only good thing is Bradley Walsh."
Someone else said: "Bradley Walsh is still the best thing about #DoctorWho - he's the heart and the humour and the soul in a sea of exposition."
A sixth tweeted: "#DoctorWho was awful, too many characters. I like Bradley Walsh, Lenny Henry was good. Sorry but Jodie isn't right for the role. Not a great story either."
The episode's overnight audience was Jodie's lowest yet as the Doctor with 4.9million viewers watching, according to figures - down from the 8.2million achieved with her main series debut in October 2018.
