if the sonic is created by 13 with no help from the tardis, why do the sonic and the tardis share the same metallic crystal motif?

It was just a concept



if the sonic is made before the tardis is finished, then maybe the tardis sensed the "style"?

if it was after, then maybe she styled it after the console.

We don’t know exactly who Angstrom and Epzo are but we know who portrays them; Angstrom is played by Susan Lynch and Epzo by Shaun Dooley.

Desolation is possibly the name of the alien planet.

In addition to Angstrom and Epzo, there is also a character called Ilin, played by Art Malik.

And there are creatures called Remnants, voiced by Ian Gelder. It’s possible Ian Gelder’s voice may be altered by a synthesizer for the the Remnants but here is a sample of his voice:



That sample reminded me of the Silents!

I feel like doing a fancy title sequence that's totally stylistically different from the traditional one, and has a fucking pop song instead of the main theme, would be a surefire way to get the entire country REEEing straight onto their facebook saying "THEYVE RUINED DOCTOR WHO" even if the usual sequence kicked in the following week.

It's far more likely that there just isn't a big musical title sequence at all.

The Doctor Falls was UNIRONICALLY a case of "you've pulled another Hell Bent, you've pulled another fucking Hell Bent"



To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Doctor Who. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of temporal mechanics and quantum physics, most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also the Doctor's, specifically the Twelfth’s, nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Doctor Who truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Doctor’s catchphrases: “My boy; Oh my giddy aunt; Reverse the polarity; Would you like a jelly baby?; Brave heart; UNLIMITED RICE PUDDING; I think have amnesia; No more; Fantastic!; Allons-y!, Geronimo!; and Shut up!" which are a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Steven Moffat's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools… how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Gallifreyan tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they can translate Gallifreyan (from memory) and that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

I'm getting pissed off now, okay? It's come to the point where I'm just…I'm so pissed off. Doctor Who, The Woman Who Fell to Earth, or The Woman Who Fell From the Sky, or HOWEVER YOU SAY THE SHIT NAME… Urgh my God, like, I just can't.

Doctor Who…it's at a very fucking low point right now. It is shit. The Woman Who Fell to Earth written by Chris Chibnall was shit. The whole episode had no meaning; it was a waste of my time. They should have had Graham and the Doctor, the whole episode, it should have been revolving around them the whole episode instead of me having to care about this s-plotline that I didn't care about. All I wanted from that whole episode was Graham and Doctor interactions, that's all I fucking wanted, but no, I was forced this bullshit fucking storyline about knife crime down my fucking throat like it's a big fat dick going in my fucking throat like, no, no no no NOOO! NO! NO! NO! No! Fuck you Chris Chibnall. Fuck you. You've pulled another Cyberwoman, you've pulled another Cyberwoman; that is what you've just done, you've pulled another fucking Cyberwoman. And it has pissed me off. You know what, if next week's episode is shit, I'm– I'm leaving. I'm leaving until the season finale. If next week is shit, I am going to be- stop watching Doctor Who until the season finale. Okay. That, I swear. I pledge that to you guys. If The Ghost Monument - or Sculpture, whatever the fucking name is - if it is shit, I will stop watching Doctor Who.

The Woman Who Fell to Earth was a pile of shit.

I think it will stay very consistent. They need her look to be "iconic" to sell toys, unlike 12 whose fashion changed every episode.

Just realised how BASED it is that Chibnall inverted Moffat's era for Series 11, making the show bland and safe instead of the show being interesting and experimental.


>they can say "bitch" on Doctor Who but not anything saucier like "bastard", "prick", "twat", etc



Jodie would ask more money to do such thing


unironically a huge fan of the "just a traveller" attitude, if they actually go for it






nope, idiot with a box



in Husbands of River Song, River says "you bastard!" as the Doctor teleports her away. But because of the teleport, you dont hear the second word. Alex Kingston did say Bastard though, and some people that can lip-read (you can still see river as she disappears) have confirmed that that seems to be what she's saying.

Point is, we need more near-swears in Who



the problem is not the swearing, it that it was used towards womyn



I see the appeal, but it's a fundamentally dishonest attitude now. The very structure of the show has relied on the Doctor not being "just a traveller" for a very long time. If they wanted to write that show they should have done it about 30 years ago. Every time Chibnall spadges on about ALL NEW MONSTERS! he undermines the "just le traveller!" vision of Doctor Who.


File: 8fdd011aa872c6c⋯.jpg (65.54 KB, 600x600, 1:1, hitman.jpg)


paging skelly . . . sesska uploaded her broadchurch reaction



Well, it depends. They can't write the Doctor as "just a cosmic hobo with nothing special about her" now, it would be jarring. But I think the Doctor's attitude could change. For the Doctor to consider herself just a traveller, rather than building herself up like he has in the new series so far would be interesting to me, and honestly would feel like a natural extension of Capaldi's era. He still evidently thought highly of himself, quoting his mega reputation in both Extremis and The Doctor Falls. But I think it would make sense or the Doctor's ego to die down a bit further (I feel it already started in 2014)

But other than how the Doctor sees herself, having her encounter more unknowns rather than old enemies would take the focus away from the Doctor as a superhero imo. When The Doctor meets the Daleks, there's an understanding that they've fought a thousand times now, and the Doctor's pretty much always won. But in s11, if the Doctor meets a giant spider, an electricity monster, evil ribbons, whatever… Her reputation isnt gonna do shit to scare them.

Even just the little things: When the Doctor meets the Judoon in Series 3, he claims to already know who they are. Then they go to New New York where he's already been, then they meet the Carrionites next, and he's met them before too. I'd love it if most of the monsters and villains this series were completely new to the Doctor. She can be a super smart heroic oncoming storm or whatever, but I like the idea of her encountering planets and aliens she has literally never met. I feel that would somehow raise the stakes a little

I'm not saying rewrite the character, but I'd like the Doctor to see herself as less of a lonely god (even if she is), and I'd like her to be framed slightly differently.



Well there was that bit in Turn Left where the Doctor pinched his eyelids and started doing an impression of a chinese woman with lots of racial epithets. I thought that was a bit much.


Traveller doesn't have to mean "tourist". Hopefully it just means no more waffle about the time war and the oncoming storm etc. Series 7B is absolutely intolerable in this regard. I know some people like it but I much prefer Doctor Who as pure anthology.


I thought "just a traveller" hate is ironic. Unironically shocking to me.


Clara saying "arse" in Heaven Sent is absolutely based. My wishlist for future Doctor Who swear words includes "prick", "piss" and "gobshite".

I see returning foes and locales like credit. You have devalued the episode by robbing it of freshness and creativity. So to compensate, the story must be really good to justify itself. That's why I rolled my eyes at the Cybermen episodes in Series 8 and 9. They were actually not that bad but i'm left with the feeling that they'd be much improved with some fresh material.



>You have devalued the episode by robbing it of freshness and creativity. So to compensate, the story must be really good to justify itself.

but there are loads of episodes with original monsters and concepts that are hot fucking garbage, whereas Series 8 and 10's Cybermen episodes use the themes associated with the Cybermen to further their own stories…



one-parters increase the chance of original monsters to suck



The Cybermen are absolutely thematically central to Series 8, a series in which every single episode either featured cyborgs, soldiers, or cyborg soldiers. They were the logical endpoint of what the series had been exploring about artificiality, dehumanisation, the Doctor positioning himself more like his early days (note the visual callback to the Invasion). The series is so aware of this it even cheekily points out how utterly relevant they are with the pointed musical "spoiler" about the Cybermen in Dark Water. The Cybermen inform and comment on 12, Clara, and Danny's development and stories. In a show with over half a century of stories there is tremendous value in utilising the past for new story purposes, instead of just churning out endless new status quo stories that don't reflect on the old to comment on the new.



I mostly like RTD, but that twee, grandstanding puffery is genuinely excruciating.

They're all mates; they all have interpersonal dynamics; they're a team in some ways - with the Doctor leading from the front, but she's the one going, 'Come with me and we'll have an awesome time together'.

There are a host of reasons why questions of this form are inconsiderate, unhelpful, and hurtful, both to the person being speculated about and to the larger public audience, and I will not answer them. This is the sort of thing you *at best* speculate privately about at bars, not on social media. And really, you should be careful doing it there.

I've spent the last couple of days thinking loads about RTD's original plans for the series 4 opener. I think we came out on the better side, though - his layout for the series sounded seriously shit, especially Journey's End; bringing Catherine Tate back was also the best possible option. It just always interests me to consider "what could have been".

>'In any other world / You could tell the difference?' That's a Doctor Who companion song! That's 'I'm going in the TARDIS'! And then those violins start. 'Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in.' That's Penny! I'm going to use that track on screen, as she decides to become the companion.The scene is written in my head. I can see it — where she is, how she walks, how I write the stage directions, the mood of it, the romance of it, the size of it. I can absolutely see it.


moffatt sucks, empty child - stupid boring, girl in fireplace - like a disney movie, blink - stupid bad monsters, silence in library - dumb river ho, eleventh hour - cbeebies hour, beast below - beast borelow, time of angels - mor ebad mosnter, pandorica opens - stupid no sence made, christmas carol - ripoff silly sharks, imposible astroaut - dumb river ho and silly bad mosnters, good man goes war - dumb paternose gang, lets kill hitler - stupid river songs, wedding of ho - ho, narnia one - dumb, dalek asylum - ruined the daleks, angels manhattan - bad monster kills bad charecters, snowmen - stupid cbbc silly, bells of st jon - dumb, name of doctor - its a boring, day of doctor - also a boring, time of doctor - no sence, deep breath - its a boring, listen - its a boring, dark water - its a boring, last christmas - ripoff, magic aprentice - its a boring, heaven sent - most boringest ep ever, hell bent - dumb stupid FUCK, hsuband of ho - cbeebies, return doctor mysterio - shitty acengers ripoff, the pilot - rtd ripoff, extremis - more shit, world noufh time - ruined the cyvermen, twice upon a time - dumb doctor is not sexist stupid fuckr. so go ahead and tell me hwo moffat is good?

Oh I completely agree. It would have been a cheap Sarah Jane ripoff and he even admitted he was ready to write, as he calls it, The Doctor In Love again. It would have been truly fucking awful, but I can't stop myself thinking about what might have been, for better or worse.

I do wish he'd incorporated Any Other World into Partners in Crime.



I guess it's just a preference. I hate mythos episodes of the X-Files too. I think if you have a story which works with an old enemy then obviously do it but the Cyberman/Dalek churn is just obnoxious when you have a litany of other ideas that can be cribbed from classic Who.


I don't really understand why people like Dark Water/Death in Heaven, utterly forgettable.

Certainly not, but in this case I'm not interested in Nation's intentions so much as his capabilities. The Daleks is first and foremost a padded romp with bug eyed monsters which also happens to mark the point at which the Doctor goes from acting like an arsehole to acting in a heroic capacity. This doesn't make it a character study. As character-driven storytelling in that period goes it's not remotely on the level of Edge of Destruction or The Aztecs, and neither of those qualify as character studies either. Arguably it's far too early in the course of the show for the idea of a character study to even have entered the playing field. Even as late on as the 7/Ace era, when the interiority of the characters is a huge concern, the show is not actually doing "character studies" conceived on the level of Midnight.

Why else would he pick up some random Earth chav over any other being in the known universe. He clearly wanted to do bum stuff.



I think we've both read the story in different ways - what I'm highlighting is the Doctor's manipulation (>le doctor is manipulative and dark) of his companions into getting the fluid link from the city and causing them so much tormenting, in the end leaving them all bedraggled. I don't see the Doctor as having gone from acting like an arsehole to becoming a hero in that whatsoever, and I think that's important because it's the first time the audience is supposed to question the Doctor's trustworthiness as a leader, and it's the first time I think the Doctor is made to (implicitly) evaluate his actions, thus causing him to take on the role of a hero later

what are some headcanons you have that you would never actually want to see explored in the show? (either because it would ruin the mystery or be to bogged down)

I like to think the weeping angels were these peaceful things on Gallifrey, feeding on the time vortex, and would be something that kids on Gallifrey would play games with. But after the Time War, they were left scattered and hungry, and have resorted to other means. They could kill you and feed on your lost potential, but instead they send you back in time. to be kind. Every time we see them in the new series, they're more desperate and hungry than the last time. In Time of Angels, one of them was willing to crash a spaceship so a city of angels could feed on the radiation. In Angels Take Manhattan, they were willing to battery farm humans. But I like the idea they were once peaceful and fairly chill, because it seems like it would be a pretty horrifying aspect of the time war. Something peaceful from The Doctor's childhood resorting to murder…. I'm sure there are plenty of things that contradict my idea, but whatever



Missy ran over Danny.



i like that a lot. i like to vaugely headcanon the angels as some sort of muliated/punished/damaged time lords, going by the pose in EOT and general temporal nature of em. maybe like how some time lords wanted to be celestis, some wanted to be final sanction, some ended up as angels for some reaosn



I'd personally like to imagine that the Weeping Angels fell from grace/reverence in their own society and went from being an incredibly civilized society to nothing more than feral scavengers. Maybe they were jealous of the Time Lords and wanted to mimic them, but after flying too close to the proverbial sun they lost their wings and the Time Lords gave them some wildly unfair and ironic punishment.

On the topic of headcanons, I don't have too much love for The Other but I can see why it's something people would like.



>RASSILON: The vote is taken. Only two stand against, and will stand as monument to their shame, like the Weeping Angels of old.

>(Beside him, two female Time Lords, both covering their faces with their hands)


I'd also like to imagine that Ulysses and Penelope Gate are canon.



hmm maybe ancient gallifreyan abomination..their..doomsday…



I love N8's idea that the Doctor's "mum" in EOT is actually Ulysses, at some point regenerated as a woman


White Christmas is better than any episode of Doctor Who. Chibnall needs to call up Charlie Brooker, or at least the version before he bastardised his own creation


Also, why do plebs dislike The National Anthem? It's one of the best episodes.


Would it be a step too far if they brought Susan back but in a male incarnation?


Eh, maybe. Not something I'd considered.



Forgot my flag!



Reddit only likes it since they Americanised it. The first two series are great.



Arguably the Americanism isn't the problem but the increased episode order. You can cut each Netflix series down to the length of a Channel 4 series (in other words, drop the 3 mediocre-to-shit episodes) and immediately the quality rises to be roughly consistent.

SO IRONIC! DEAD BABY! BE SHOCKED!

As someone who's read and enjoyed a lot of Brooker's humour columns, it's the sort of thing that would have worked brilliantly as a punchline in one of those, but not as a 40 minute episode of drama.

The National Anthem is better than White Bear




Seconded and preferably keep it up throughout Series 11


I like programs such as The Twilight Zone when they give a little moral lesson like "Don't let your kid be a little shit", "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" or "If you think you're abandoned on an alien planet that looks like a New Mexico desert there's an incredibly high chance you're in New Mexico and not on an alien planet" but BM just seems like some of its stories are pure edge.



this. so much this.



Remember seeing it on airing without an idea of what I was in for, top tier shit - based on a true story, too! Based clairvoyant Brooker.


Does Chibnall…you know…*raises eyebrows* *moves head left and right*…"get any"?




I was just messing about with it, but I think I'm gonna make some photoshop type things while this season was airing with Chibnall quotes because that kind of cynical humour is right up my alley



>"If you think you're abandoned on an alien planet that looks like a New Mexico desert there's an incredibly high chance you're in New Mexico and not on an alien planet"

Which ep is this? I've never seen Twilight Zone.



The National Anthem is less good once you become more redpilled and realise it's a bit too apologetic towards the government and ruling class in general. The idea that it's evidence of some horrible, awful moral rot for the populace to be interested in seeing the PM humiliated and degraded comes off less and less in touch with reality with every successive year of the Tories.

It's a symptom of a bigger problem with the show in general, which is that it's too content to stop the commentary at "gosh arent people awful" instead of pushing through to make an argument about what the real problems are.

I still like the ep as a well executed bit of dark absurdism though. I think most people just hate it because it's gross and weird rather than shiny and sci-fi.


London, 1869. Four very different Victorian women are drawn into the dark underground world of female boxing by the eccentric Professor Sharp. Controlled by men and constrained by corsets, each finds an unexpected freedom in the boxing ring. As their lives begin to intertwine their journey takes us through grand drawing rooms, bustling theatres and rowdy Southwark pubs where the women fight inequality as well as each other. But with the final showdown approaching only one can become the Lady Boxing Champion of the World…

Based on historical research into 19th century women’s boxing, The Sweet Science of Bruising is a fascinating new play by Joy Wilkinson (Verity Bargate Award winner and new series writer for Doctor Who). Featuring an ensemble cast and thrilling up-close boxing matches, this is an epic tale of passion, politics and pugilism.

I always saw the Doctor as in an academic role, not as a physician. I find the comparison weird.


1. The episode contains a gut punch of a twist that has been public knowledge for a while now.

2. Ryan is to Graham as Susan is to One.

3. Ryan and Graham aren’t the only two new companions with a history.

4. I kept thinking “That’s a Hershey’s Kiss!” making a bit of the episode unintentionally funny.

5. When we first encounter her, Yasmin is wearing the same outfit that Amy Pond was when she met Eleven.

6. Though the episode contains no opening credit sequence, we do hear a bit of the theme, as the Doctor is first introduced.

7. “Oh! I hate empty pockets!”

8. “That’s exciting. No, not ‘exciting.’ What do I mean? ‘Worrying.’”

9. A curious facet of the Doctor’s binary circulatory system, subtly hinted at in “Smith and Jones,” is directly referenced: the Doctor has two **.

10. I honestly don’t remember the character’s name, but he’s basically Fox Mulder.



This is… weird stuff. Unironically what does this have to do with Doctor Who?

i've been worried that series 11 is just going to be whelming. just exactly what i'm expecting from episode 2. feel like i've already seen it.



Why the fuck has PCJ seen e2?



Screening for episode 2 has already happened.


Hype on a scale 1-10 when you hear Captain Jack's theme in the finale cliffhanger?



Politically Correct Jonathan from r/gal



he's been seeing episodes for years, i think the bbc believe he's a reviewer or something



1000 but it won't happen, sadly


>[10:52 PM] PCJonathan: Will go into ep2 more after ep1 has aired but in general, IMHO, it strongly depends on whether you're a fan or a newbie. Whether you have preconceived expectations or not.

Moffat was treating fans with WEAT, TDF and TUAT because he knew that Chibnall will be focusing on newfags with S12.






The entire plot of episode 2:

>This is a base. It is under siege from some monsters.

>The Doctor does something clever using the sonic screwdriver. The monsters go away and the day is saved



Treating fans to a pile of shit by ruining the Cybermen and the first Doctor?

I have one regarding the reason he left Gallifrey, but really it's just taking all the aspects we know about his history and working them together into a coherent through-line.

As a wee little boy who sleeps in a barn he learns the story of the Hybrid, and when he's taken to the Untempered Schism he sees himself standing in the ruins of Gallifrey and realizes it must be him.

He slacks off in his studies out of a mixture of despair and a vague notion that if he amounts to nothing then he'll never have that power. Eventually he changes track and starts studying everything he can, thinking the best way would be to learn how to destroy Gallifrey and then not do that, in essence. He studies the ancient superweapons of Gallifrey, including the Hand of Omega. He gets ahold of one of the prototypes of the Hand, and during experimentation it "goes off" and kills a lot of people, including Susan's parents. Out of fear of what he might do, and to escape the authorities, he takes Susan and the Hand and flees in a TARDIS to hide it away. On the way back from stowing it in a graveyard, he finds a couple of teachers poking around the TARDIS and then you know the rest of the story.

I don't like this theme very much but I absolutely love the little bit that leads into the actual theme



Thank you!




I like seeing people's origin stories for the Weeping Angels, esp in the light of their mention in "The End of Time". They're literally perfect combatants for a Time War, what with the "sending people back in time" thing and of course the Schrodinger's Angel stone power. I gave my own take on the Weeping Angel origin story in Book of the Enemy.


>two female Time Lords

According to some short story somewhere, the one besides the Woman was the "Patriarch of Stillhaven".



Each of you is remembering half of the same theory!


After series 11 comes out I want to see a video of teen Chibnall critiquing series 11 with sad Murray Gold music in the background.


I also liked PCJ's little rant about how bad a Youtuber Ryan is.



i'd like it if each new theme introduced a new looping bit

like the end of trial of a timelord's https://youtu.be/iG8VZmFep40?t=23



also does it bug anyone else that murray gold's themes dropped the bouncy bit at 10 seconds in https://youtu.be/sjDFvoRNpOM?t=10

you know what i mean? you can hear it in the series 1 theme 11 seconds in https://youtu.be/z75qvDtbxjQ?t=11

but with the next version of the theme it's missing https://youtu.be/XY2pFZniOAs?t=9 and i don't think he included it again



Thank you for reminding me that Ryan's a youtuber I now want to drink even more bleach.

nilsos racial stereotyping in the thread


post yfw the Rosa Parks story is basically Countrycide and they spend the episode investigating bad things happening thinking there are aliens, but it turns out to be just a bunch of racist people and we get a big speech about how the real monsters aren’t out there in space, they’re living amongst us, which is why we need heroes like Rosa to stand up against them when the Doctor isn’t around


File: edc5db761d833f8⋯.jpg (28.6 KB, 600x456, 25:19, 1499384027608.jpg)



what could racists do to attack people that could be mistaken for aliens?



This would portray a civil rights hero as someone lesser than and only filling in for some TV character called the doctor. So chibnall will probably do it.



an alien that only eats black skin and they live in the back of the buses

>Cryptic monologue about how people usually avoid the backs of busses



here is the bingo



racists are working for a monster who is threatening their lives, so they have to feed the monster black people



racists lie about aliens but in fact they are the killers



this will of course be met with complaints that it's portraying racists as victims to be sympathised with, chibnall will damage control with "they were still racists before the monster" but the damage will have been done

File: dba324d4655417d⋯.jpg (2.33 MB, 4300x2867, 4300:2867, 23.jpg)

what was the purpose of this photoshoot? If they were trying to make a statement about what it would have been like to have 13 female doctors, shouldn't they have had women dressed up in the outfits of all the previous doctors?

If they're not trying to make a statement about that, what is the reason for dressing 13 women up as 13? Did they really just superficially ask "what can we do to promote the show… oh I know, the doctor's a woman and she's the 13th one, so let's get 13 women dressed up as her!"? That's so fucking stupid



I mean time of the doctor



Are they not all just cosplayers? What was the context of the picture?


File: 7112db322333785⋯.jpg (2.11 MB, 3870x2581, 3870:2581, 24.jpg)


I think it was just a photo stunt done at the sheffield screening.

I'm sure they're paid models and not actual cosplayers. They're all to uniform - they've all got wigs on with hair that reflects 13's growing-out dyed hair, and they're all wearing the 13 outfit made in partnership with Her Universe (which funnily enough just highlights the inaccuracies compared to the actual costume)



don't overthink it skelly



Okay, that's actually sort of hilarious. I guess they just thought it would be cool to have thirteen Thirteens?



TBF, I did also say that they're not bad episodes, far from it, they're just painfully targeted at newbies as you gotta sit through reintroductions of all the plot elements. Hopefully it's only like that for the first few episodes then we get back to normal, although it's especially stretched out this time for reasons I won't go into right now. To copy and paste and edit a bit to remove spoilers that wasn't seen:

The trend of "new viewers being the aim" continues. As a fan, I found them both to be painfully slow to do traditional new era shit and I'm fairly well aware that this probably speaks more for the state of me and fans and my/our expectations than the quality of episodes themselves. It's one of those cases where I know this shouldn't affect my enjoyment of the episode from a critical or quality of episode perspective but it still does hamper my enjoyment of the episode.

But if it was that on its own, it wouldn't be as bad. The issue here is that….there's an awful lot of padding while I'm waiting for certain bits and a lot of that padding is unimportant, boring and/or clichés redressed. There's the odd interesting scene or plot-line or twist here and there but they're not really feeling all that imaginative or make it worthy of the hype.

On the other hand, if I was a newbie, I wouldn't really be going into it with expectations or "needs" or anything and that's why I think that if people can be let down now before they watch it, they might end up enjoying it more, even if slightly, than otherwise.

Series 5 really is the gold standard, although I think that might speak more for series 5's quality than anything else. Fucking kino.


Jesus Christ, Ryan is so bad at it that it honestly frustrates me (from a level where it's something I'd love to get into at some point, as Nate very well knows, and stupidity just annoys me in general, see: The Zygon Invasion UNIT/Family scene). I'll spoiler tag just in case although it's so minor that it really doesn't matter: I don't think he's actually a YouTuber myself, at least I wouldn't classify him as one. It's not his job, barely even a hobby, and I imagine that he does it purely for himself and YouTube is just the tool he uses, perhaps his friends and family occasionally watch too. It's not really a major thing but the minor details paints a weird picture. Based on my memory of my single viewing, I don't think they even reference that he's a vlogger anyway.

Time for the data: Channel name? "RyanS". 37 subs. The video is literally titled "Hey". Who the fuck titles their videos "Hey"? No description. 19 views. 11 likes but 3 dislikes . At least it's correctly categorised as "Blog". And yet, he of course has a really good camera. Even the fucking YouTube algorithm, which normally recommends another video from the same user or at least very similar, wants to get as far out of there and as quick as possible.

I absolutely love how he posts this deeply emotional and life changing story, possibly the biggest video a vlogger could post, and then 3 of the few fuckers who care enough to watch/subscribe just come and dislike it

Does any of this matter? Fuck no, but what kind of Doctor Who fan would I be if I didn't nitpick pointless shitty details!


You were much closer the first time.

Just realised how CRINGE it is that Moffat failed to invert the Sound of Drums for the Monk trilogy so the Doctor is in charge of the world and the Master and companions are on the run.



Whenever I feel good I just think about how Moffat gave the big "Bill and Nardole trapped in a dystopian UK where the Doctor has gone bad and they need to ask Missy for help" story to Toby Fucking Whithouse and then I cry myself to sleep.

Chibnall really is a classic fan if he’s referencing Marco Polo like this


I think one of the more annoying things of the Doctor Who fandom is how some fans of the classic - not all of them, but it does happen - get mad or annoyed at the fans of New Who who haven’t seen Classic Who.

I would love to watch Classic Who, and I know I’m not the only one. However, it’s impossible. Not because the episodes are simply not online, but they don’t exist anymore. They were destroyed, lost, whatever, but the BBC no longer has a lot of Classic Who.

So to the Classic Who fans who have a problem with the New Who fans not seeing the old series, it’s not because we don’t want to see it, it’s because we can’t. And I’m not going to watch a show with big chunks missing from it. That would be like reading a book with pages missing. And I won’t do that.




How can someone be fine with arbitrarily starting doctor who with one era but not another just because there’s missing black and white episodes. You could watch all of Pertwee to McCoy and treat it like it started with Spearhead like with new who and Rose

hold the fuck up

listen to the music in that clip

it sounds like a sound-alike rendition of I am The Doctor - yknow, the type of thing they use in shows where they don't want to pay licensing fees so they create an off-brand version of a song that people immediately recognise as the song it's copying

It's 7/4 and has a similar rhythm, just a different melody

is this segun's work? 13's theme?



There was a song in an earlier clip that sounded very similar to 12's theme as well.



I remember that one too

I could have sworn in an interview segun said he didn't try to replicate marigold and wanted to do his own thing, though

but they melodies are way too similar for it to just be a coincidence in some stock music they paid for

>It feels like a tacit acknowledgement that the previous orders of 12 and 13 were maybe a bit too much. We’re getting less Doctor Who, but if that means we’re not getting duds such as Fear Her or The Curse of the Black Spot, then who’s complaining?

i think whatever the number is, there'll still be the same percentage of shit

you'd think with only doing the 4 2009 specials that they'd all be good



>Despite this, Moffat came in for an uncanny amount of criticism. Ridiculous to my mind was the claim that he “couldn’t write women” (from Amy Pond to Missy to River Song, there were plenty of strong female characters during Moffat’s reign), but a more plausible malaise for a lot of viewers was how much attention needed to be paid to episodes.

>Moffat’s mistake, if it could be called a mistake, was to start making Doctor Who for Doctor Who fans. Casual viewers such as, say, my mum couldn’t always follow the show’s backstory-heavy plots. So they didn’t always tune in. Series nine opener The Magician’s Apprentice attracted an overnight audience of just 4.6 million viewers (and 6.5 million consolidated) in 2015, the lowest series opener since the show’s return in 2005.

Well you know how the show can be a bit hit and miss? What if they make it shorter and not make the bad ones? If they're gonna make an episode and it's gonna be bad, just don't make it, and only make the ones that are gonna be good

There's something so utterly perfect and hilarious about a showrunner having inadvertently savaged his own run as a teenager, it's a legit time travel-y writerly little perfect turnout. It's so much more hilarious than even something like Moffat's savagery of Classic Who coming back to bite him.

Why hasn't the Doctor Who theme ever been used to this effect?



Legit chills when they used the full theme there, I'd always loved the full theme but thought it was just a little treat for those with the actual album soundtrack. I hate Felina and think Ozymandias in every sense should have been the finale, but Granite State was a really interesting, ruthlessly depressing coda. Gilligan is not the type at all to ever do it but I wonder what that moment would have been like as the ending of the show there. The trouble with doing this for Doctor Who is that the middle 8 is shit and so it would ruin the effect of playing the full theme over an actual scene in an episode.

>Legit chills when they used the full theme there

same, it's one of my favourite moments of the whole show, it kind of justifies Felina for me just on the strength of how good a cliffhanger it is. I can also see it working as an ending, but it would probably have been a little too close to a Sopranos style ending which I get the feeling Vince would've wanted to avoid.



meant for >>108118. I'm giving myself (you)s now!



were you the person who posted the pic of dead missy with 'guess i got what i deserve' caption a while ago, that was goat

why is so much time being spent on the superlab construction, i understand the plot but like why did gould decide to spend so much time on it

felina was so fucking pat in a show that was filled with messiness. the thrill was always the ways plans went awry but walts every move in felina just flat out fucking works. infuriating and worse, boring. i actively cringe at walt's "i did it because i like it speech", the whole fucking show had already made that clear, him explictly stating it like an automaton feels like a ninth grader writing an essay conclusion. all of S5A and S5B were hamstrung by the stupid decision to write the Live free or Die flashforward with 0 thought on how to resolve it. felina legit verges me i despise it. ozymandias was the best ep of the show tho and granite state was a reasonably based deconstruction of 'heisenberg' and a lot of the show in general.

I don't know but that's my favorite thing from videogames.

While I don't dislike it as strongly as you do, I broadly agree about Felina. El Paso is a GOAT song and I'm tickled by Vince basically using it as the plot of the finale of his hit show. In general I'm not enthused by how le badass BrBa got in its later years, with train heists and magnets and face/offs and shit, which S1 and S2 kind of willfully poked fun at with how kind of unglamorous Walt still was at that stage (that final scene of S1 tho), before Vince and co. started doing it straight.

Angstrom and Epzo



The Rosa Monument



Yeah I love Marty Robbins and got a kick out of how El Paso didn't just play in the finale but was clearly an active part of the construction (and title) of it. I actually really loved Season 5, the flashforward and finale just verge me mightily, basically everything else the S5s did I was a big fan of. I even defend the Nazis, though they're in part a consequence of how fucking stupid the flashforward was.

I'm guessing part of your love of BCS comes to how much more grounded it is than BB S3 onwards? I like how BB became more straightly a kind of western morality play but I understand how that would verge the fans of the more grounded early years. I started watching the show during season 3's airing iirc.

>I'm guessing part of your love of BCS comes to how much more grounded it is than BB S3 onwards?

Kind of, maybe grounded isn't the word I'd use though (stuff like Danny Trejo's tortoise head still happened during those early seasons). The black comedy elements really made the show feel like it had a fresh voice, and yeah I was a bit sad that it lost that as it went on. So yeah BCS is fucking heaven to me now. Also, Vince said something on a recent BCS insider podcast that really speaks to this discussion and had a lot of mixed emotions hearing it come out of his mouth:

>What [we] never do is say "hey wouldn't it be cool if you did this, wouldn't it be cool if you did that ,what if, you know how about Jimmy…" because when you are leading with the "cool" thing you are not following the character, or rather you are not letting the character do his or her own thinking, and that way lies monsters as they say. You're just sort of bullshitting your way through it and you're never gonna wind up with anything truly organic or truly ultimately meaningful […] rather than character based then it becomes cool based, it becomes attitude. "Oh man, there's this awesome awesome awesome scene, a location we could use for this awesome shootout and there's this new kind of gun" You can get a fair bit of mileage from doing that, you could fool a viewer for a while doing that, but not forever. It doesn't pay dividends. Ultimately it's empty calories. […] You're building on quicksand if you do it that way versus building on concrete.

So, uh, bravo Vince. I guess considering he doesn't see that style of storytelling as "sustainable" he probably doesn't feel as bad resorting to it for the finale of a series. He should though.


Kill the Moon, Sleep No More/Face the Raven? (you forced me to conform to your 2-parter meme fuck you)


>begging for (you)s




Not on its own. If the plot had some kind of element that made the title a pun or a double-meaning, than yes. But I haven't heard it so idk.

I have to admit Ghost Monuments sounds dull-ish as by now. It's like the first thing you come up when you start brainstorming for future episode "what if there's a planet but its desert". I'm hope (and i'm kind of sure) that there's another spin for it, but for now it doesn't sounds as half as intriguing as RTD's and Moff's second eps.

>mfw slowly realising there is a non-zero chance that the Series 10 soundtrack will NEVER get officially released



correct episodes.

i obviously like their approach a lot in general but my quibbles with are 1) i think the "every season resets the previous season" memes have a grain of truth, especially for BCS s2, 2) the pace of BCS wouldnt bother me at all, s4 wouldnt bother me at all, if not for gould saying in the s4 promo interviews he thinks it will have the same run of BB in the long run. there is so much left to cover for jimmy even a BB or Gene season aside and i love the slow pace i really do but seeing half a season on superlab contsruction when they might only get ~20 more episoedes is worrying. i know their process is cracking a season at a time and not thinking further beyond that but i worry.


the way PCJ described it really does make it sound like its just painstakingly explaining how a dr who episode setup works to normies, which sounds so insane. we'll see soon enough. i hate beast below but moff full ball dived into doing crazy hooks right from the start.



what even is there to explain other than bigger on the inside time machine? does the audience really need to know the doctor is a "time lord"


why the fuck did dr who prank bill



for regeneration, two hearts, & possibly other physiological differences yes



regen would have no relevance in a first series, and why even bring up two hearts at all if explaining lore is such a burden




Not even remotely relevant until it actually happens.

>two hearts, & possibly other physiological differences

Throwaway detail in 99% of cases.


the idea of using ep2 of a "for a new audience!" series to teach how a typical boring base under siege works is wild, why disassociate with the past so much if youre literally just being as trad as fuck and just trying to get new people into that
