Series 12 will be consist of more terrifying monsters, according to the Doctor Who actor Bradley Walsh.
'Doctor Who' Series 11 was not exactly the show everyone was expecting, not exactly living up to the hype or expectation of the fans, last season was a lost year for the series. There are always bad episodes in every season of 'Doctor Who,' but to balance the bad, there are classic episodes, but it was not the case for series 11.
There were already a lot of eyeballs on the show because, for the first time in 50 years, the show was introducing the first female doctor. There were some who were calling this unnecessary inclusivity and were ready to bash the show before it came out. But the writers of series 11 did not do themselves and the characters justice either.

Series 11 was bloated with filler episodes, too many uninteresting companions, and instead of the show inspiring inclusivity, it felt preachy. The biggest problem of the series 11, though, was the lack of an overarching villain and extremely low stakes for the characters. While we can name almost all the important villains who appeared over the years in the revived series, there is not a single villain from series 11 we can name.
There was a lot of problem with the last season of the beloved sci-fi series, but it wasn’t Jodie Whittaker, who was amazing as The 'Doctor.' But there was another character in the show, who was also making his mark and winning over fans. Out of the three companions in the last series of 'Doctor Who,' the most interesting one was 'Graham.'

Bradley Walsh played the grieving widower and stepfather perfectly, and he was one of the only shining lights of the show. Now, the actor is giving assurances there will be more terrifying monsters in the upcoming series 12.
Doctor Who occasionally brings out monsters, namely, the 'Weeping Angels,' 'Daleks,' 'Silence' and 'Cyberman' but the actor is putting the fanbase on notice; there are going to be some scary monsters on the new season of 'Doctor Who.' “I’ve got to say, be prepared for the monsters, there are some monsters that will absolutely make your hair curl,” the 'Graham' actor said.
“There’s a couple of monsters they’ve come up with that are absolutely terrifying,” Walsh said. “Absolutely terrifying,” the actor re-stressed the point, which really is making our body tingle a little with excitement.
We are so here for more monsters, different worlds, and a overarching story, which carries into all the episodes with an interesting villain. The first female Doctor deserves more than the lackluster and uninspired first season, and bringing more scary monsters for her to fight is a step in the right direction.
There is also a precedent of the show improving drastically in the new Doctor’s sophomore outing, which is exactly what we are hoping for will happening with 'Doctor Who' Series 12. The show is not due till mid-2020, but there was a piece of exciting news this week when they announced to be on the lookout on 23 November for a surprise; what it will be is still a mystery.
