I know you've watched since the 80s. This episode felt like they were trying to go back to the original premise of the show back in '63. Doctor Who was designed as a childrens' show giving history lessons. The Daleks actually saved the show because the kids loved them.
In England it is still considered a childrens' show. Some of the doctors (David Tennant - for example) have talked about watching the show as a child and hiding behind the couch during the scary parts.

Loving Jodie Whittaker so far, but I'm not sure the writing is up to par with Moffit's. Rosa Parks is one of my heroines, but I found the episode a bit preachy. I'm totally in on diversity and equal rights -- I just felt like this episode was more of a history lesson for young kids than a Doctor Who adventure story.

Think about the other historical episodes: Van Gogh and Shakespeare. This one wasn't nearly as clever or fast-paced. It also lacked a really compelling monster/villain.

I've been a Whovian since the 80's, so I'm not quitting now. I just hope the writing improves.
