Dinosaurs on a Spaceship makes very few pretentions to taking itself seriously, it's pure froth. TWWFTE is a drab block of uninspired characterisation, a half assed plot stretched out to an hour, littered with instantly forgettable setpieces and cynical attempts to reprise the "humanity" of RTD's run without any of the wit or anger, an embarrassing grab at pathos in the last 10 minutes executed with all the deftness of an anvil, music spadging its underwear over the Doctor far more obnoxiously than Gold ever did, one-note performances and direction resulting in a tonal mess, and dialogue that sounds like it's from a first draft. I dislike it a lot, more because it's so powerfully mediocre in the way I've seen from so many worthless Hollywood movies and TV than because it's necessarily truly shit.

Give me 11 riding a triceratops any fucking day.

the "big rework" still surmounts to adding additional instrumentation, using the original recording as the base. They have literally described it just like that.

>It has been arranged this year by Segun Akinola, our new composer, taking the original recordings made by Delia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop in 1963, and refashioning them for today.

I'm not suggesting he just added a reverb filter or something like that which constitutes "overlaying effects", but it's still fundamentally a shallow remix rather than an original arrangement.

>shallow

i suppose that's just where we disagree then, i don't think it needs to be an original arrangement if it sounds interesting. it's not 'literally just the original theme with some more instruments overlaid' - it just uses elements of the original theme and makes a really different impression.


 No.111263

>>111258

My main issue with it is that it starts with this really powerful pounding kick drum… which only happens once, leaving the rest of the theme lacking it. Whenever I listen to it I keep expecting the kick to reappear at the start of every bar but it just doesn't.


 No.111264

>>111262

the "elements" of the original theme you refer to is explicitly extensive samples of the melody. All of the other instruments work to elevate that melody, rather than offer anything new. Or at least they -try- to elevate it, the drums are just distracting.

>Taking the original recordings made by Delia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop in 1963, and refashioning them for today

is frankly a perfect description of the theme. It doesn't attempt to do anything more than take the original theme and make it sound more palatable for the current year.

The drums were a misguided decision to make the theme sound more exciting and action-y, but it overpowers the style of ambience that everything else adheres to. The bass beat that he added should have been enough to drive the beat, the drums are completely unnecessary and completely ruin it.

They should go back to multiple episodes per story so more depth of detail and development can be made during the run of a story.

The setting has a lot of potential to be great but it's held back, in this anon's humble opinion, by a short runtime and bad writers. Since the latter isn't going to change any time soon, they should at least try out the former.

If each story went over multiple episodes, then the show could be something akin to Game of Thrones or Battlestar Galactica, since it would have the time to properly delve into the plots instead of giving us a bite sized snapshot of a self contained story, primarily designed to hold the attention of children.


 No.111268

Ruminating on something. The episode goes to lengths to trumpet how great Doctor Who is - even playing the theme mid episode - while also feeling actively ashamed of Doctor Who and apologetic for it. The reluctance to just own the fact it's a screwdriver, even after a whole cringey montage spent building it followed by solving the entire plot with it. The patronising talking-to-audience in 13's speeches. The lightning-fast transition out of the sci-fi plot as soon as Grace's death has been contrived; a rushed death scene complete with Marion-Cotillard-in-TDKR head slump, and then within what feels like seconds - before this horrific tragedy can even sink in - we're hit with Ryan's youtube reveal (Chibnall's one moment of trying to feel clever, I'd say he blows the load way too quickly) followed by his depressed eulogising of her, and it's like we've not only snapped into a completely different show but have all forgotten the previous one, or are collectively acting as though it did not happen.

This whiplash really undermines everything that follows it, although to be honest killing off a major character you've just introduced with 8 minutes left of the episode was always unlikely to come off very well. Chibnall is so desperate to get away from the Doctor Who-ey stuff he knows is crap and back to the stuff he thinks he's good at, that he ends up making both worse


 No.111269

Honestly, why did the Nan have to die? It felt cheap and it completely halted the momentum of the story. I was having some fun, liked the crane jump, liked the le ebin "I am the Doctor" speech and was into most of the where it was going.

But then, OUT OF NOWHERE, the story gives this super-heavy moment, only gives it 5 minutes of attention and then clumsly goes into COSTUMES, SET UP, NEXT EPISODE AAAAAH

but the Nan actually didn't die right?

Also, the did the sonic-build montage felt really off for anyone else? Jarring cut, off music, I dunno, was weird.

Deep Breath's climax involves the Doctor having a thematically layered conversation with the antagonist, which resolves in ambiguity about whether the latter chose suicide or the former homicide. It's about one million times more interesting than anything that happens on the crane in the new ep.


 No.111272

Didn't the doctor explicitly tell graham and nan not to come back because it wasn't safe?

Wasn't nan's death completely unnecessary because the doctor had already fixed the problem and the tentacle monster was harmless on its own? It never even killed anyone. They don't bring any of this up at all, nan dies thinking she saved people but all she did was kill herself with a misguided attempt to help

yeah Deep Breath is maybe the wrong episode to do this with. Although the differences in Moffat and Chibnall's approaches is instructive. Deep Breath presents the Doctor as a broken man who's more alien than he was before, and Clara as struggling to cope with the change. Chibnall doesn't have any of this basis so just shoehorns lines about change and evolution into the episode

The writing was ok, but directing was… okay too, sadly.

There's a bunch of stuff I like but it's clearly less thought out than Rose and Eleventh Hour. And Christmas Invasion, and Smith and Jones…

The strongest and arguably the most meaningful part of the episode is Ryan's stuff but this whole storyline is ruined by how Grace's death is handled. I don't mind how it's written but god tonally something was off. It just didnt work for me as intended, and I suspect it was director's fault. All elements leading up to it are pretty great, bike ride, Grace's perforemance, even the twist itself is cool, it's just her death which feels poorly done.

I don't think all of directing was bad, I liked how train scene is shot, crane scene was fine too, maybe a bit slow, but Jamie Childs is no Graeme Harper. Teal-orange colour palette felt appropriate for ep too.

Jodie was pretty great, but I usually dislike post-regen wackiness and some of it felt very unfunny. Some of the more serious stuff worked better, imo. I liked that scene where she talks about family. It's hard to judge companions at this point because the most developed are Grace and Ryan and the rest are just sketched, but I liked character interacions and I think ensemble cast can do wonders.

As for the actual plot, it's ok. Surprisingly low stakes, compared to other opening episodes. Just one hunter dude who wants to kill a loser, that was nice for a change, but I'm not convinced that it worked as intended. Carl was funny. Tzim-Sha or whatever reminds me of korakin from class or something BF would do and they did and didnt impress me, wouldnt say hes outright shit though, there were seeds of good villain in there.

I loved guest stars trailer in the end. I think it did a great job with hinting next stories without giving details of the plot. I know like 4 or 5 of them, but it felt nice to know that there's a lot of cool-looking characters to advertise.

It's like if RTD started NuWho off with a story that featured no Doctor or TARDIS, and was just Rose ranting about modern culture while a guy who pretended to be the Doctor showed up. Could be kino, but definitely not something you can show as someone's first episode. Though >>111487 has a point.

Honestly I don't like that sandy review too much, she gives to much credit to the episode for "not trying to be a classic" but I honestly feel like this is a cop out, In my opinion this episode HAD to be a classic, it had to blast away all the naysayers of both chibnall and jodie and make them eat their words, sure theres value in making a "solid" standard episode of doctor who after this massive change, but wheres the ambition?

I've said it early but I seriously feel like chibnall is suffering from the same mindset that the creators of kino childrens shows have, that is to, despite being in charge of a great series, feel the urge to prove your show to the masses, wanking off a bunch of actors does nothing more than look like you're showing off "Doctor who is grown up now!!!!!, we're just like every other new BBC show now!!!!!"

The addition of more and more adult themes (cheating etc.) very much had hints that Bryke was ashamed that his most successful work was a kids show, as if that has some sort of lesser authenticity than a more gritty mature show, because of this he shoved these mature themes in instead of actually expanding on the interesting ideas korra presented, I also think the whole roaring 20s thing was him trying to appeal to a completely different audience but that's up for debate.

Lads, I just rewatched The Eleventh Hour. It's painfully good. I started to well up at bits I've never had an emotional reaction to before. When kid Amy talks about how her mum would put faces on the apples. Even at the climax when everyone across the world is implementing the Doctor's 0-virus. And this is the first time I've really noticed how fucking gorgeous and artistic the glow and lens flare in pic related are, it is such a well-directed story on virtually every front. (I did notice that weird looped-and-reversed shot during the Atraxi confrontation for the first time, too, but I'll chalk it up as one of Doctor Who's many quirks.)

It's funny, it's sweet, it's dynamic, it's uplifting. Matt gives an instantly likeable performance that shifts through multiple gears throughout the ep. And all the elements of the story that are shameless escapism or hero-fetishism are forgivable, because it's just the first step in Moffat slowly unpacking all of those as his run progresses.

And it has a pointed message in its own right, about the transformative power of imagination. The Atraxi are giant eyeballs who can only see in literal terms, a surveillance state. The power of Prisoner Zero, the Doctor and ultimately Amy is in the realm of dreams and the psyche. Amy's willingness to break out of a culturally imposed mode of belief, and instead believe what's happening before her eyes, is what motivates her to help the Doctor. The day is saved, in a call-forward to The Big Bang, by Amy remembering what she saw in the spare room thanks to the influence of the Doctor on her unconscious mind.

By the end the TARDIS, and by extension the show, really do feel magical. Like there are infinite pleasures inside. Indirectly, it's a reminder that your imagination can take you anywhere. Watching it reminded me that I want to tell stories.

Notably, the one time he tried to stick it to Tumblr and angrily demonstrate that he wasn't a misogynist, it was an absolute shitshow (Widow Wardrobe).

But when he took the message on board, and started to rethink how he was presenting the relationships between men and women on the show, we got 12 and Clara which was a masterpiece and probably his most fleshed out work on the show ever.

Leaked voiceover from 'The Ghost Monument'

Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space. It's said that if you hold a lung full of air you can survive in the total vacuum of space for about thirty seconds.

But with space being really big and all, the chances of being picked up within that time are 2 to the power of 2076775949 to 1 against… which, by a staggering coincidence, is also the telephone number of the Sheffield flat where Yasmin once went to a fancy dress party and met a very nice girl whom she totally failed to get off with.

For real though, it reminded me of the Shadowkin, with the SJA tier costume, and added edginess. However, it represented one of the best examples of an alien seeming to actually come from another culture with it's own values. (I also loved that Jodie identified the spaghetti monster as a bunch of individual worms bound together by something, and that it was unusual even to her). The teeth thing was really weird to be honest, and I hope Chibnall isn't afraid to do weird shit. RTD and Moff were bonkers at times, unironically. I worry Chibnall will be pedestrian, and think that a pregnant man is a new and revolutionary thing, rather than being the kind of writer to put a skin trampoline lady in his second episode.

New female Doctor. Sunday slot.

Wait until the middle-late part of the series before declaring it a success, S10 lost a lot of viewers around the monks arc.

Okay, that was a completely average Doctor Who episodes with far more companions than it knew what to do with. Change a couple of scenes and you couldn't even tell that it's supposed to be a new Doctor's introduction.

I have no allegiances here. Cornell's gushing is always gross, and the same goes for every other member of the "used to be involved with Doctor Who" circle who has to force a smile to maintain their semblance of a career and fanbase.
