Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

I definitely agree that a big problem is telling and not showing. There's so much that get's referenced or brought up that makes you go 'oh, that sounds good.. why are we not showing that?'. It's one of my biggest personal frustrations with this era for sure.

Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm forever quite confused with Chibnall because I think he is capable of telliing compelling, character-driven stories, creating realistic, likeable and relatable characters, and balancing an ensemble cast. He's demonstrated this in his other work, so I really don't get why it's not translating to ...

Re: Thoughts and Opinions on "The Timeless Children" (spoilers)

I definitely think the BBC don't know what to do with Doctor Who anymore, and a big part of that is how rapidly the television landscape is changing. Doctor Who has always been a unique property, now more than ever. There was a definite attempt with S11+ to make it fall in line with what had been th...

Re: Time Lord Victorious

I'm not sure this is really my thing - I might dip my toe in and investigate some of it once we know more about it. Sure it's amazing for those who want it but personally it sounds like quite a big investment time wise and money wise too.

Re: The All-Encompassing New Series Thread (2005-present)

I really loved that, it made me properly weep. Jo's comment about both those hearts breaking was what got me first, and then I was just a mess from there on out. Rani's final section was gorgeous and really powerfully delivered. Also, having Luke finally be canonically confirmed as being gay was rea...

Re: The Over-Encompassing Classic Series Thread (1963-1989 +1996 +Books, Comics, etc.)

When I learned Steven Moffat expected another year of Matt Smith, I kinda forgave a lot more of the "Gotta resolve everything" elements of "Time". It would've made a better season arc, for sure. Oh, I hadn't realized everyone thought Smith would hang on one more year. Yeah, given that, the rushed e...

Re: The Over-Encompassing Classic Series Thread (1963-1989 +1996 +Books, Comics, etc.)

I've been rewatching all of Doctor Who for about a year now, I kind of ended up stopped dead in my tracks for a while because I was so busy but the past few weeks I've had a bit more time on my hands, to say the least, and I'm struggling to focus on anything actually production like the mountain of...

Re: Doctor who Series 11/12 5.5” Figure wave

Got the TARDIS today, it does look gorgeous. Shame about the inaccurate sculpt and lack of insert but it still looks really lovely in this form!

Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

three, why does the Ruth Doctor have a police box TARDIS, four, why Ireland for a metaphor 3. I think that's an interesting one going forward, and ultimately I think it was for the drama of the reveal. But I do think it might subconsciously explain why the Doctor liked the Police Box and never both...
