Dan nailed my feelings on Jodie from after watching this first ep, and most of what I've seen from her subsequent season. She's solid and has that Doctor-ish "X" factor quality, but I want to see her more determined and a little more badass. I don't miss Moffat's "The Doctor will kill you so hard whenever he's mad enough to feel like it" BDE because that was unending, but at the same time I want to see that heroic determination that most protagonists have.

And I see the balancing act of either employing some toxic characterization or airing on the side closer to pacifism, but there has to be a better equilibrium to strike. I like Jodie, but I think how she's written feels too familiar to Tennant or Smith, or at least it did for a while.
