I haven't seen the most recent season but while I was cool on the previous, I will say what it did well was a quasi-return to the historicals, which makes perfect sense for a new female Doctor and her friends who include two people of color. Yes, Demons of the Punjab and Rosa had extra sci-fi elements beyond the time travelling alien and her fun friends but they weren't the strongest part of the episode, the historical drama was. That said, the inspirational song at the end of Rosa was a bit eye-rolling for me. I get why because the classic Doctor Who theme might feel weird after the tone of the ending and the journey. The sci-fi stuff was the weakest element of that season and more grounded historical drama was where it was stronger.
