Contrarian edition

Fit for the purpose: >>101557


I have this extremely silly, overly-complicated and very meta theory regarding these versions of the Doctor, which also tries to make sense of/account for the numbering, the Other, the "Morbius Faces," the Watcher, the Eighth Doctor's two lives (the EDAs and the Big Finish audios), and how the Seventh Doctor's character shifted from the TV show to the Virgin books.

This started out as a short writing exercise, before blossoming into this incredibly dorky post you're about to read. (If you read, that is.)

To sum up beforehand: The Doctor's had 3 regeneration cycles, his timeline's been 'revised a few times,' and he's even worn some faces more than once (sometimes without knowing it). The "Second Cycle" section is really long and kinda dumb, and is based mainly on conjecture.

So, here we go.

The First Cycle:

“The Other”

“Morbius” Face #1

“Morbius” Face #2

“Morbius” Face #3

“Morbius” Face #4

“Morbius” Face #5

“Morbius” Face #6

“Morbius” Face #7

“Morbius” Face #8

the First Doctor

the Second Doctor

the Third Doctor

the Fourth Doctor

To clarify this a bit: I really like the theory that the Fourth Doctor was on death's door in "Logopolis," and was actually on his last incarnation. (It adds a lot of pathos to the story, and also ties in nicely with the Master's plot in "The Deadly Assassin.") So, I made him last, then worked backwards, incorporating the first three Doctors, and the Morbius Faces.


And I count "the Other" as the first incarnation mainly to make the numbering work. My in-universe justification is that when his biodata was incorporated into the Doctor's, it didn't take at first, and a regeneration occurred "in-loom" to balance things out.

But obviously, the Doctor didn't die at the end of "Logopolis," and by the intervention of the Watcher was able to regenerate, kicking off…

The Second Cycle:

ZERO. "The Watcher"

The Fifth Doctor

The Sixth Doctor

The Seventh Doctor

The “Time’s Champion” Doctor

The Eighth Doctor

The “Fatal Death” Doctor

The “Shalka” Doctor

The Eighth Doctor (2)

The War Doctor

The Ninth Doctor

The Tenth Doctor

The “Journey’s End” Doctor

The Eleventh Doctor


So, this is fanwank to the highest extreme. Most of this is my own conjecture, and I fully admit to not having the fullest knowledge all the different forms of Doctor Who media. Again, I was trying to take the official numbering into account, and still posit the Eleventh Doctor as the "last" incarnation of a cycle.


First off, I list the “Time’s Champion” Doctor (aka the VNAs’ Seventh Doctor) as a separate incarnation. This is mainly a way to work around how Ace has several different futures. My idea is that TV/comics/audios Ace dies at the end of “Ground Zero,” and then the Seventh Doctor, broken, goes on a quest to avenge her.


During this quest, he’s killed, and regenerates. However, he fights it with all his might, and winds up maintain the same form, similar to how he later did in “Journey’s End.” And also like “Journey’s End,” this warps him a little, making him more cold and calculating. Later meddling causes him to forget this regeneration ever occurred.


He picks up an Ace from another universe where her Doctor died, and sets off with her again. This leads to the VNAs, Benny Summerfied, and all of that good stuff.


Despite all that, the Doctor winds up alone and sad again, shot dead in San Francisco. And then the Eighth Doctor lives through the TV movie and the EDAs. During the cliffhanger at the end of “The Gallifrey Chronicles,” he winds up regenerating into a man who surprisingly looks like Rowan Atkinson. He travels with Fitz and Cassandra for awhile, before eventually winding up with a woman named Emma.


However, when the Doctor’s timeline is attacked in the future, this reverberates backwards and ‘splits’ this Doctor into two separate, coexisting timelines. One is killed and becomes the body seen in “Alien Bodies, and the other, due to the trauma, regenerates into the Shalka Doctor. This new Doctor’s memories end right before the Eighth Doctor regenerated the first time, and assumes that he’s the Ninth Doctor.


This Doctor returns to helps rebuild Gallifrey, and finds love with the President’s daughter. Sadly, she’s killed during a bloody (and ultimately failed) revolution that the Doctor was unable to stop, and he’s devastated by this. Feeling alone and ‘alien’ on Gallifrey again, he takes the TARDIS and the Master (who’s now inhabiting an android body after also being injured in the coup.) He travels for a bit, and starts to find himself again after taking a new human companion, Allison Cheney.


Yet again, this Doctor gets wiped out of existence by the effects of the Last Great Time War, though this time the effects are so severe that he gets shoved back into being the Eighth Doctor, and his memories end after the events of the TV movie. This “Eighth Doctor” lives through the Big Finish audios, and ultimately becomes the War Doctor after landing on Karn.


From here, things play out as shown in the new show: The War Doctor lead the Ninth, Tenth, “Journey’s End”, and then Eleventh Doctors, before being granted a new cycle of regenerations by the Time Lords and finally becoming the Twelfth. (Who’s technically the twenty-seventh incarnation, and the eighteenth known as Doctor.)

The Third Cycle (So Far…):

ZERO. The Eleventh Doctor (technically)

The Twelfth Doctor

And from here, we'll see. If they're smart, future writers will say that the Doctor received 'unlimited' regenerations in "The Time of the Doctor," to keep things simple.

I fully accept the "Morbius Doctors + new cycle in Logopolis" theory, just because S18 is GOAT enough to have extra in-universe importance, but see what I mean about the Time War shenanigans being a bit of a stretch? Splitting the Doctor's timeline in half off-screen, Jesus. That said, it would be "Interference" levels of kino if Big Finish made an audio where 7 did a 10-style vanity regen.


I always admire folks who manage to slot NuWho into the EDAs' post-War universe. Unfortunately it's all but useless as a guide, since their source indication / labeling system is so whack. But it serves as a lovely guide for the important Tardis Wiki skill of making complete speculation seem obvious and well-founded by switching between wildly disparate sources mid-sentence.

End of Days was terrible, everyone started hating each other out of the blue and the only two people who would reasonably hate each other (Owen and Ianto who fuck) barely even interact. The massive beast was laughable and felt completely useless.


Bidmead wrote the story with the highest body count of any story.



which one?



Agreed. How'd you like ep12 though?






The Pandorica Opens?




because a chunk of the universe got destroyed? or is this only counting onscreen deaths?


Entropy. Is there a worse villain?



knife crime



/who/ is anti-chibnall and that's a good thing.




Captain Jack Harkness was really good, Owen and Ianto being snippy at each other was unexpected considering their recent intimacy but I liked it even though it was out of character.


Tegan Jovanka. Is there a worse anything?



I can't believe they were able to make the entropy affect Tom Baker's face at the start of s18. He looks like he's aged from the moment he dons that beautiful burgundy outfit. In fact, the general tiredness of the fourth doctor that season, and the phoned in performances in a few scenes here and there, really sell the idea that entropy is having an effect on our hero, and not just the rest of that universe. interesting that the Doctor never fully defeats the entropy, and that entropy seeps into the very quality of the show, only to finally be defeated by the Seventh Doctor. And yet it was too late to save the Doctor Who universe



Can I just say, I really love this post



Good post.



> And yet it was too late to save the Doctor Who universe

cf. the scene after Mr Winkle is defrosted in Zagreus


what is the significance of bringing Jacqueline Hill back to play a disposable villainess



Arguably, the entropy hasn't been defeated till now, with Thirteen. The 12th Doctor was the sacrificial lamb, the one who faced his worse impulses and the very instinct to self-terminate, and fell to the depths, so that the Thirteenth Doctor could rise in his place.



>implying it wasn't an amnesiac Barbara



Serious question, is this meant to be funny? Because your phrasing is making me laff



How is that related to entropy.



explain to Cedric


>Cedric the teddy will never be a companion in Doctor Who



How can Pandorica have a smaller body count than Logopolis? A chunk of the universe gets destroyed in that story, Pandorica sees the entire universe and every possible version of reality deleted on the spot.



The focus on death and sadness in 12's era, and how he reckoned with the darkness of his own era, ending in him announcing his heroism in defiance of inevitable death. I mean, the finale and Christmas special literally end with 12's body dying slowly. (And, in a meta way, popular audiences' opinion of 12's era slowly decreased as well.) But that's okay. That era needed to happen, to allow Doctor Who to clean the slate, and evolve.

Thirteen's fresh and new, though. The Twelfth Doctor died, and left a chance for another women. In extremis, something has come out the other side. Cause that's the thing–entropy still wins, but that doesn't mean everything ends.



I was going for over the top yeah. But I'm not completely joking either lmao



That just sounds like death to me rather than entropy, and I don't see how rebirth factors in at all.


Immigrant's demeanor makes me think of an AI right at the moment before the moment it goes homicidal. Probably just me though.


>it became more and more obvious that he had no interest in making kino, just recreating the vague memories he had of hartnell smiling at people

Who are we talking about /who/?



Peter Moffatt



Steven Capaldi?



The slow decay over a long time? Inevitable march to death? Existential dread and defiance against a coming fate? Sounds like entropy to me.

Also, the sunny, positive, "just a traveller" 13 coming after a 12th Doctor who was tired of changing and of losing friends seems like a rebirth, or at least a renewal.


Uh, how so?



What does rebirth have to do with entropy though is what I mean.



>What does rebirth have to do with entropy though is what I mean.

Not much, I suppose. I guess they're just both parts of the Twelve-Thirteen handover.

forgetting the obvious one



What about the theory that she's supposed to be the personification of what Gallifrey used to be before the War and his longing staring at her is him pining for a return to the older days where the Time Lords aren't crazy. When he decides to throw the gun around he separated himself from his romantic view of his people and realises that they're dangerous people who need to be stopped.



That's more of a subtextual reading than an identity, and it's compatible with several of the more popular theories.

she was tardis neil gaiman

she was of harmony

she was the cloister bell

she was nilso

>In other news, I just channel-hopped and caught The Sound of Drums. Am I on drugs when I write these things?

>I can watch my stuff and get this disconcerting draught of… well, of how it must look to other people, sometimes. Of how unplanned it all seems. Like I'm making it up as I go along. I'm refusing, on screen, to do all those normal things that would make an episode more coherent, with a beginning-middle-and-end wholeness. It really struck me when the Doctor discovers the Archangel Network. That comes completely out of the blue. I mean, completely! It could have been foreshadowed - Saxon could have been talking to the Cabinet about his satellites, for example. More significantly, with the entire world hypnotised, it's interesting how little the Doctor even asks, 'How is the Master doing this?' Technically, that's a major plot strand, but I'm more interested in running on, to find new things. You're left with a Hugely Important Network that is only discovered… in the exact moment that it's revealed to be Hugely Important! No warning, no ground-laying, nothing.Then, to make it even odder, it's dispensed with in the same scene. And I'm being casual with a plot element that, next episode, saves the entire world. That's bordering on reckless!

>It's the same with the discovery of the TARDIS on board the Valiant? The Doctor opens a door… and there it is! But actually, look back, when did the Doctor last worry about where the TARDIS is? I'm not sure he's even mentioned it at all. And neither has the Master. And then we discover that the Master has turned it into a Paradox Machine… well, we had no sign of that, did we? Where were the traditional scenes of the Master plotting with Lucy, or with the Toclafane? 'Soon my Paradox Machine will be complete,' etc. I don't use any of the available opportunities to explain anything, or to make the structure clear, or to reassure people that there's a plan at work here.

>What I'm saying is, I can see how annoying that looks. I can see how maddening it must be, for some people. Especially if you're imposing really classical script structures, and templates, and expectations on that episode, even unconsciously. I must look like a vandal, a kid, or an amateur. No wonder some people hate what I write. Of course, I'm going to win this argument. (Did you guess?) Because the simple fact is: all those things were planned. All of them were my choice. They're not lazy, clumsy, or desperate. They're chosen. I can see more traditional ways of telling those stories, but I'm not interested. I think the stuff that you gain from writing in this way—the shock, the whirlwind, the freedom, the exhilaration—is worth the world.

>I've got this sort of tumbling, freewheeling style that somersaults along, with everything happening now-not later, not before, but now, now, now. I've made a Doctor Who that exists in the present tense. And I think that's exactly like the experience of watching Doctor Who. It's happening now, right in front of your eyes! If you don't like it, if you don't join in with it, then… blimey, these episodes must be nonsensical. But those classical structures can be seen in Primeval, in Demons, in Merlin, in all of them—and yet we stand with millions more viewers. And I think that's partly why. So, ha!

it's fair to say that /who/s mindset on the moff era is very very small in the grand scheme of things, i doubt anyone who has seen the episode would agree with the sentiment of moffs era that's here, so that means it's divisive among a crowd that DOESNT include us or our view.

so my question is, what the fuck is it? how broadly do the MSM really disagree on doctor who to the point of headlines like this existing? is it just shit and the only people saying it's good are only doing so because of jodie? this is crazy

>we were worried it was going to be like chibs doctor who episodes but in reality we should have been more worried that it was going to be like chibs broadchurch episodes



My eyes are gonna feel like they've been fucking stabbed in a bit over a week.



but space broadchurch is exactly what I wanted from him

>"As the Americans say… screw you, petal!"



You could at least compare lines written for the doctor instead of using some random side character for Chibnall



? Why would I do that? I'm just posting two examples of his dialogue.



How RTD writes the Doctor and how Chibnall writes a human character are completely different I don’t know why you put them together



What? Both of those lines of dialogue were written by Chibnall.

>I write because otherwise I'd have to get a proper job, and because I am really interested in people, and writing I think helps me make sense of people, and also because I just really enjoy finding out what happens next in the story.

<I need this character to really drive home her connection with Ianto during the tragic final scene. Ah, I've got it: "When we woke up the next morning, a dog was pissing on our tent." Brilliant! Because she's a cyberman, and cybermen aren't human, so she has to remind him of her humanity, so she talks about the really mundane things, because being human is, like mundane, get it? You put the human thing with the science fiction thing, because they're not the same thing! Boy, I sure did make sense of people there! People will really respond to this brilliant stuff I come up with.

Interviewer: [on Cyberwoman] Perhaps the most reviled episode of Torchwood.

>I’m sure! But the funny thing is, in the Torchwood magazine, they did a poll and it was in the top five! That’s why you can’t listen to anything.

>Perhaps as a fan you analyse things too much, and I can understand that, I've done it myself-"They must have done Y because of X, they must have done that because of this"–but actually, all you do as a writer or producer is follow the things that interest you. And sometimes you're in a cul-de-sac, and sometimes it's a huge big open road that you think you could drive down forever. You follow the passions, the things that seem dramatically and emotionally interesting. You discover things by doing them, there's very little sitting around theorising about it. Get out there and try it! Might work, might not, we'll have a look afterward–but go and get your hands dirty and do it!



>Might work, might not, we'll have a look afterward

It makes more sense if Five thinks he's going to die permanently, so The Other is just Morbius One.

What's your reaction when you see this flash up on the screen?




don't post anything related to this show ever again



It's been 8 years and the mere sight of cartoon horses still upsets you?



it reflects very poorly on masculinity that adult men resonate with teachings of friendship and tolerance meant for little girls. i don't know whether to feel sorry for bronies or be disgusted by them so usually i go with a strange mix of both


what would you do if you looked outside your window and you saw nick briggs walking down the street with some takeout and a bar of chocolate?



>friendship and tolerance is only for little girls, it shouldn't resonate with men

toxic masculinity



Entirely depends what chocolate it is.



Invite him in and show him my folder of pirated audios



cadbury top deck



not at all what i'm saying.

women are taught friendship and tolerance at a young age, through shows like MLP. clearly men are not being taught friendship and tolerance as well, or there wouldn't be so many adult men who enjoy MLP



Doesn't that still suggest that such a show is an antidote for men brought up in a toxic masculine culture?



Damn that's tempting



no, because it's infantilising.

Why is it that literally every single person involved in TV/film is left-leaning politically?



People who value the stories of others and want to write their own stories are more likely to be empathetic and not a fearmongering conservative.

because they've never had real jobs



reality has a liberal bias :^)



you can get the wall.



i think there are more left wing creative types in general.



personality types attributed with creativity happen to also match the personality traits that lean politically left



Creativity, the desire to create things, is inherently left-wing. Conservatism is regressive and destructive.


Conservatives actually believe that every writer is right wing and they are forced to put in social agendas from companies instead of the writer simply believing what they put into the script.






It is a basic tenet of conservatism to be hostile towards new ideas.



and it is a basic tenet of left-wing ideology to spread your cheeks as widely as possible for anyone and everyone



cringe and yellowpilled


Conservatives live in a bubble outside reality where only other conservatives live and they can’t imagine experiences dissimilar to their own so of course they won’t be able to succeed in a creative field.


Leftists live in a bubble outside reality where only other leftists live and they can’t imagine experiences dissimilar to their own so of course they won’t be able to succeed in literally anything meaningful.

He is a former doctor who writer and he deserves our respect



RTD didn't think so



But he's denounced the show and declared that it's ruined because they cast a woman.





He might have opinions you disagree with but his contributions to the show and his help finding missing episodes are invaluable.



This doesn't explain why the official social media account for Doctor Who on BBC America would follow and thus endorse his views.



misogyny is more than a difference in opinion you festering sack of shit. go suckle on his engorged mantitties



Twitter isn’t like Facebook. There isn’t a separate button to click to show support for the person you follow you just follow them. You can’t tell if they support or not just from a follow




Bit homophobic



Okay but if you follow DoctorWho_BBCA and go to Ian Levine's twitter page, you see the Doctor Who icon appear under "Followers you know". That's literally associating their brand with Levine. Are they really comfortable with that?

Not gonna happen, although I think we'll get some manner of "twist" (thankfully disregarding "le every episode is standalone" stuff) towards the end of the series. I'm gonna be impressed if Chib does the same approach for S12 and S13; it would be really interesting to have a whole lack of era of Who be disconnected from the past.



Do you mean an episode dedicated to a single scene and making that scene as impactful as possible using all the established lore?


I still verge whenever I see the new logo on Classic Who shit. They can't keep getting away with it.

I don't see the problem with this. Christmas Day viewing figures have been dropping as a whole for years while New Years Day has stayed strong.

What's everyone expecting to get from Series 11? I'm expecting to get 10 episodes of Doctor Who.



>In a few years people will realise TUAT was a pre-emptive strike against Chibnall in the same way TEOT was against Moffat, but far more sophisticated.

>A whole episode about the Doctor having become exhausted with the show endlessly dragging on, accompanied by a fraudulent resurrected image of Hartnell espousing a toxically dumbed-down "good vs evil" approach to the premise, a storyline virtually devoid of event, and nothing that actually convinces 12 that he should carry on with life other than him randomly deciding to in the last few minutes.

>The sensible argument against 12 in the episode is that he isn't seeing the full picture and there's still more new value that can be found in life if he changes his perspective, i.e. gets a new showrunner and regenerates into a woman for the first time. Happy ending, right?

>Now imagine how utterly and irreparably SUBVERTED that answer becomes if the ensuing era is the bland, safe, approval-seeking wasteland of vacuity that Chibnall will probably deliver purely for the sake of prolonging the IP's monetary value? In other words, exactly what 12 was scared of in the first place? By the end of S13, when Chibnall has failed to rise to Moffat's challenge, we will have learnt that 12 was right all along.

>Please note I don’t actually think any of it was intentional (as entertaining as that idea is). I don’t think RTD deliberately set out to undermine Moffat when he wrote “some new man goes walking away and I’m dead” then had 10 randomly visit every single fucking character. But the dark well that is the end of a showrunner’s tenure – the need to mine out a justification for a sense of finality and a last big statement about Doctor Who when everything has already been used up by prior seasons; the naturally low stakes when someone else is already prepared to take over – seems to have a habit of unearthing these inadvertently fatalistic drives within the show, a subconscious loathing of what it might end up becoming if forced to continue.



I'm expecting to get 10 episodes of drama in the style of broadchurch but without a serialized story and with scifi elements



Just some doctor who really.



I expect to enjoy it. Nothing amazingly good with maybe 2 awful episodes. Jodie will be a good Doctor and he companions will have good chemistry but nothing exciting or new

the pilot isn't actually that good



It's easily one of the best directed episodes in the history of the show.



Soon to be dethroned by S11


The pilot feels like moff trying to continue with the direction first shown in bells of st john, it's easily the best representation of a living breathing place in England since the RTD era. I wish we had more time spent there with professor doc

Whittaker can never be Tennant 2.0 solely for the fact that she doesn't gurn or talk in an obnoxious mockney accent, which are easily 10's worst traits

But none of them smug.


I wonder what Bidmead thought of Extremis. He loves the Holographic Principle.


Extremis - a multi-Doctor episode? Two distinct 12s are in it.



He would probably be disappointed that it's too dumbed-down and inaccurate.



No it's not smug but hopped up on molly gurn.

that's true. I think Chibnall's Sheffield will be very living and breathing in a similar way, but with the mention of knife crime, it might be more like the England we see in Luther



A very different kind of gurn.

I like hearing you elaborate on your non-common takes

This is something im actually looking forward to in s11, by the end of broadchurch you really had a good feel of the scale and geography of the place, I hope we get a lot of time there honestly.

>– Chris Chibnall at the Q&A event post screening



The Moffat era is an epilogue to the RTD era. Chibnall is the true successor.



RTD, Moffat and Chibnall's eras are a play in three acts. Specifically, a tragedy.



YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.



For series 10 Moffat (I actually expect this was more Minchin, but same difference) went out of his (their) way to go outside the regular BBC stable of directors (NewWho is not alone in regularly plundering this same stable list of directors that basically only ever do Brit TV work, they are all very workmanlike, when we get someone notably talented like Toby Haynes they stand out, and Rachel Talalay and Nick Hurran both deservedly have something of a non BBC career at this point too, and Talalay of course didn't come up in that environment either). They hired directors Lawrence Gough and Bill Anderson to direct the first four episodes of the series, presumably to try something different, experiment a bit, set the series up different stylistically (though it fell by the wayside, remember how much S10 was positioned as a 'new' series, a soft reboot). Apart from Talalay and Adam Smith, these were the only two directors of the Moff era he hadn't inherited from RTD or who were the sorts always in and out of BBC Wales' production studios. Anderson is a young Scottish indie director, and Gough is an established BBC period-action London director. The point I'm making here is S10 ambitiously hired ambitious directors who, if from nothing else than sheer virtue of the fact they'd never done anything like Doctor Who before, brought something new to the show.

I'll quote Gough, who directed The Pilot and Smile (and individually storyboarded every frame of each episode), himself:

>It was an interesting pressure. I try and seek out projects that give me pressure. It was a challenge, and I wanted that. I had a few thoughts in my own head about how I wanted to approach and to try and mix it up a little bit if I could, particular with performance and character. I was pretty heavy on giving feedback on script, as much as I could do.

Also worthy of note is that he directed the Friend From The Future minisode a year in advance of directing The Pilot, which he credits for giving him time to mull over how Peter and Pearl interacted and how he could improve and sharpen their chemistry and relationship in the actual episode. In particular he fixated upon wanting her TARDIS reveal moment to be more attuned to her mindset as it happened, and not just using any of the visual language Classic and New Who had established for such moments:

>What I thought was there was a visual flair to the reveals that’d not been done, and I came up with the idea of doing it on a wire cam. I found out the diameters of the TARDIS and worked out the widest point, and we rigged a steel cable from outside the front door of the TARDIS – we took out a pane of glass that you don’t see – and put it right into the rafters outside the build. We were able to travel the camera the maximum diameter of the TARDIS using an extremely wide lens. You’re probably looking at maybe between 20 and 30 metres. It took quite a time, and then we had to digitally remove the cable, of course, because it was in shot. But it worked. And we looked at the grid of the way the lights work in the TARDIS and we played with those. Everything is controlled and on separate circuits, so you can control when it comes on – you probably know all this! – and the way the lights come on. The rest was in the grade, when we held back on the darkness as far as possible, so it looked like we were pulling back, and then the reveal.

Also of note is the fact he actually came up in the acting world originally, which lends itself to an approach he describes that's quite different from how workmanlike/more-coverage TV directors usually operate:

>I come back in my work to studying as an actor. Allowing the actor to breathe in the frame and not steering the audience for every beat. Not doing tons of coverage, but doing the coverage for the scene, and allowing the blocking to be right. Not just doing blanket coverage and making it in the edit. What’s the essence of the scene? What’s this scene about? How do we get Pearl to move around the TARDIS for the first time and get the coverage you need to move the story beats forward?

Beyond those quotes illustrating his approach, I think you'll find if you rewatch the episode and pay particular attention to the visuals it would stand out to you how much of the story is communicated visually (a rarity for Who). This kind of care simply isn't in the vast, vast majority of the show. The composition of the opening shot in 12's study, what it says about 12's new status quo, and how he uses that framing as a kind of counterpoint as Bill's entrance sees it shift and lose its symmetry. The way Heather's temptation to Bill through promise of the liberation of a Doctor-esque life literally comes to emulate the intro of the show. But the real jewel of the episode is the montage of vid related. The way it literalises the metaphor of the monologue in cinematic language is gorgeous, and bizarrely visually-minded for Doctor Who. It explictly moves out of the literal and actually visually positions the frames of the episode as distinct units, reinforcing the point 12 is making about the passage of time. This is experimental and novel in a way directors just simply aren't for Doctor Who, and the rare other cases where it happens (like Talalay bringing the Heaven Sent script to life through expressinism and doing things like intentionally making the shadows unnatural/"wrong" to accentuate the artifical horror of the confession dial) are remarked upon precisely because the actual mindfulness in making the visuals not just bring the script to television, but actively make television/cinema out of it, transcend the confines of the page and tell the story with visuals instead of visually telling the story, it's noteworthy in how well it works. "Time is a structure relative to ourselves, time is the space made by our lives where we stand together forever, time and relative dimension in space, it means life," says 12 in a montage applying that concept of temporal abstraction to how that speech is being communicated in the episode. This just isn't the stuff you see in most episodes of the show.



Everything he says is so fucking generic. The optimistic part of me says it's because he's spoilerphobic, and it will change in 2019, when series 11 has aired in it's entirety. But the pessimistic part of me says that his era will be generic


The last two shots of Dragonfire Ep 1 were switched before airing, so the original cliffhanger would have been Ace/Mel seeing the Dragon for the first time instead of the 7th Doctor hanging over the railings.

Are there any other notable DWE's of cliffhangers which were changed before airing for small and minute reasons?



That interpretation of the main melody is a shitshow, but I like the approach to the bassline.

This theme is from a YT video I queued in the stream months ago. I quite like it but it is a bit too screechy.



The cliffhanger for TUaT was originally going to be the Doctor's cock falling off. Shortly before shooting this was changed to the ring falling off and the Doctor falling out the TARDIS was added to tie in with S11.



Honestly I think (or hope) that he's just a bit shit at doing interviews.



That's not all he's shit at.



He's shit at growing natural hair.


s11 premiere review in stream



Honestly he comes across as autistic to me.



>It wasn't the most gripping, it was a little bit weak




The ideas for the montage were all in the script. Not that that makes it any less great, but credit where it's due.



Fair, though I'd contest with "A row of vertical split screens slamming down together showing each one of the familiar beats of Bill’s day" doesn't necessitate a film reel. Hell, the scripted version of the Bill/Heather meeting in the bar is very different (though it was filmed).

what did those RT reviewers think of capaldi?


Remember all those reviews that called The Doctor Falls disappointing?



Moffat's such a visual writer. I bet Chibnall's scripts are bare shitfests. Wonder if they'll even keep releasing them like they did Moffat's.



no, and I would very rather not ever learn about them



He's so visual to the degree I almost wonder if it's annoyed any directors, then I think of the type of the directors DW has had, and I don't worry.



Are you defending Douglas Mackinnon's direction of Listen?



Douglas Mackinnon more like Douglas Lackskino



Sandifer's complaint about the opening of Listen is so offbase; it makes all the sense in the world. I think the ending was handled well too. It could have been better in the hands of a better director obviously but I wouldn't call Listen workmanlike; there was genuine effort there.


The chad Douglas Camfield

Seriously, he's excellent




great take. It's genuinely given me a new perspective on it. I can't wait to hear what you think of Jamie Childs, in a week or so



I'll have plenty to say for sure!



Probably mediocre, like everything else in the Chibnall era will be.



>Wonder if they'll even keep releasing them like they did Moffat's.

I'm curious to see what kind of behind-the-scenes/extra stuff we'll be getting in general with Chibnall. RTD Who had ridiculously good amounts of that kind of thing from Confidential to commentaries for every single episode (two for most of Tennant's), but it kind of died off during Moffat's run until we were left with the phucking Fan Show. Hope we manage a comfy commentary or two with Jodie and her team.

The fact that Chibnall hired him.



Who is even in the Capal ones?



I appreciate the paint aesthetic, and having Carole Ann Ford as what I can only assume is an older Susan or something is pretty based. But I probably wont listen unless you all think it's wonderful

Strevens is also mediocre.

The story flows quite well and doesn't really seem to drag at any considerable pace. It doesn't feel like the story is going "Look, it's a normal story but our gimmick is that it's IN THE PAST :O!!!", but instead feels natural and fluid.



I'll give it a chance then. Does it feel true to Hartnell's era?

I quite like the idea of stories tha involve other cultures. We dont often meet the Samurai, or the Ancient Egyptians, or the mayans or really anyone that isnt british in Doctor Who. I feel a lot of Who stories are wasted on Victorian London or WW2


>yfw they only even reveal the titles of the upcoming episodes like 1-2 weeks before airing, if at all



It does feel like a Hartnell historical as the TARDIS team is split up almost immediately after arriving. It covers a lot of ground over the entire story as it does jump around a bit but I thought it was great.


back once again it's the renegade Master



Can't wait. In the state BF is in rn, I dont give it a go without a recommendation, but you've convinced me.



Have you heard The Invention of Death



IIRC Neo said in chat the writer of the story Andrew Smith was anally retentive about getting a lot of the sounds accurately done so they recorded a lot of fresh sounds instead of using stock effects. Apparently he was also very meticulous about getting the history and dates right, so that's a plus.

Also, Andrew Smith wrote Full Circle which is kino as hell



No. I havent heard any of the nu first doctor thing. Is that one good?


On a day like today it’s worth saying, I believe survivors. Men must not close our eyes and minds to what happens to women in this world. We must fight, alongside them, for them to be believed, at the ballot box & with art & by listening, and change this world for the better.



fuck women desu

It's legitimately fantastic and easily, easily the best 1DA. Great science-fiction story.

The 1DAs are interesting because they're like an AU take on starting Doctor Who, not just an emulation of Hartnell era. Going more alt-universe is more interesting and has more creative longevity as there comes a time where basically everything BF can mine from an actual era is mined.

>None of these actors [in the 1DAs] are doing impersonations of the original actors. What they're doing is playing these parts as written. And, you know, we've written them - our brilliant writers, you know, Matt Fitton [sic], John Dorney, and, uh, Andrew Smith, and, uhm, Guy Adams - sorry Guy, how could I forget you, I'm just old and forgetful…uhm, they've written these greats scripts that the style, very much in the style of the First Doctor Adventures, and the cast are coming to it, ah, and playing the parts as written. Written in that very faithful way. So, you know, you're not going to listen to it and think 'Goodness me, I thought that was William Hartnell' - no, you'll hear someone playing the First Doctor character, uh, s-perhaps a slightly different i-interpretation. And with all the other characters as well! I think there will be moments when you think 'Oh yes, yes, this is exac-I recognise that', but this is the sort of new way of looking at it. We just thought it'd be fun and exciting thing. We've been trying to do it for ages but, as it gets mentioned in interviews coming up in future podcasts, David Bradley is so busy, really, uh-th-so we were trying to do these even before, uhm, the Christmas special was mooted. Was, you know, just a coincidence! When they t-, when the BBC finally said 'ooh, and David Bradley is gonna be in the Christmas special, tis top secret', we said 'Oh? You're g-oh! We were already going to do something like that', but anyway, it all worked out very nicely.

>Briggs: "What's fascinating about the cast and their performances is that they're not impersonating William Hartnell and his TARDIS crew. They're playing those parts as written in the scripts. No one can replace the brilliance of those original performances. What we're presenting here is a kind of reinvention of that era, completely in the spirit of the original. They are new but entirely faithful interpretations of these characters."



Somewhere, Nick Briggs' ears just pricked up. He can smell piracy.

Its going to be GOATER than GOAT.



She's gonna be a shat Doctor



thank you so much for this. based again, neo. I'll check out the invention of death and the samurai one. I think they made the right choice, in making stories faithful to the era, but at the same time doing new things, not worrying about the performance being different. an AU of the original era. It was never going to be exactly the same, so why not? I'm always wary of new actors taking over though. Thanks for all the links and stuff, you're a total babe


I believe the woman.

is this nilso trying to be funny, or someone randomly using the padre flag? legit cant tell



>she skipped "he's orange"



It's someone else



fair enough. I can't really be arsed with impersonating nilso or whatever, but I'm super drunk on my own at a quarter to 7, so who am I to judge



ily, and i agree. the great white hurricane is a super comfy historical too if you like the ones u hear. i dont much like the destination wars though, the first master idea doesnt work.


>she loved it



I love the early historicals, so I'll probs give it a go. It doesn't surprise me much that the first Master idea doesn't work though tbqh. It was always gonna be contentious.

I really wish new who would do more with it's historicals. The aztecs, the egyptians, the mesopotamians… we need more adventurous stories instead of Victorian London and WW2 again and again. My girlfriend is latina, and I was thinking of showing her a Who story with South America involved in some way, but the Aztecs while a great story is problematic in some ways, it's a representation of imperialistic ideals. Anyway, it has made me realise that Who doesn't explore foreign cultures enough in it's history, so I hope the rumour about a historical india episode are true. I'm super drunk btw if I'm way off topic here. I love historicals, but I wanna actually explore history. Will check that stuff out though
