Who is the target audience for the rosa parks episode?

If it contains a political message (which it should, since it's about an inherently political event), what's the angle going to be? Given the circumstances, I expect we will get something completely one dimensional, with the cosmic racist being a comical strawman who is beaten down ideologically by the main cast. Essentially the DWE of an "I am dumb" political comic.

For viewers who have racist inclinations and perhaps even side with the cosmic racist, it will just agitate them and perhaps even strengthen their beliefs. If Doctor Who is to be the symbol of hope and inclusion that Chibnall insists it is, it should make some attempt to change the mind of racists rather than just aggressively declare them as wrong.

If all the episode does is reinforce the pre-existing beliefs of people who already support the episode's message, what's the point of it? If it doesn't at least attempt to change the minds of people who disagree, it's nothing but a vanity exercise that enables further polarization.

You could perhaps argue that it's also educational for kids who are unfamiliar with that period of history, but it would still be a missed opportunity for something more valuable.

Is this peak Skelly? The relitigation of black people's basic humanity and right to exist has been going on for a very long time and yet we still have racism. It's almost like it's a discourse that is impervious to both fact and empathy. The thought of Doctor Who trying to didactically participate in that particular "exchange of ideas" makes me gag.

No, the real problem with Rosa isn't going to be that it "fails to prove the racists wrong" (implicitly, taking their ideology seriously in the process) but that it will present a completely mainstreamed, teleological, sanitised and establishment-friendly depiction of social activism and resistance. It's going to be an absolute shitshow.

Timeless Child

The daughter of the Master



Matt Lucas



Lucas cast in a serious role could potentially be creepy as fuck. They can use his alopecia for added effect.



>I enjoy stories that play up the idea of the Doctor being unknowable to the point of eldritch, but only because it makes the humanising moments so much more emotional, or even amusing. I think there's something really charming in the idea of a powerful and enigmatic figure being humbled by something so raw and fervent as love.

Beautifully put; I completely agree. And you and Neo are very right about the influence of fandom perception; just within the context of Looms, there are at least a few cases of popular, minor misunderstandings of "Lungbarrow" making it into later books (namely "Against Nature").


Interesting idea. To those less familiar, in the FP series doubles-down (harder than any other media, I believe) on the idea of the Time Lords using "breeding-engines" and rejecting their sexuality, but it's framed as one of the many things they abandoned because they'd prefer to think of themselves as gods. But just like in Doctor Who, the Time Lord characters are portrayed with emotions and sexuality in abundance – cf the relationship between Entarodora and the infamously horny Robert Scarratt – just with the excuse of new ideas being introduced in Wartime. Regardless of which way you approach Looms, I think dodging their implications in the "our characters still have relatable emotions" direction is necessary for good writing.

>"Real-life stories are very interesting dramatically, and to put them into Doctor Who is a very exciting… collision," says showrunner Chris Chibnall, searching for the right words to describe the first historical story of Series 11.

what an incredibly unflattering opening sentence



I don't watch Doctor Who to face real life problems, I watch it for escapism. I think most people do. What is he thinking?



>but what is the mystery surrounding Rosa Parks?




Sidekicks Ryan Sinclair and Yasmin Khan face discrimination as they are refused entry to a motel and both discuss modern racism, too.

Ryan, played by black actor Tosin Cole, says: “It’s not like Rosa Parks wipes out racism from the world forever.

“Otherwise how come I get stopped by police way more than my white mates? Tell me you don’t get it?”

Police officer Yasmin, played by Mandip Gill, replies: “Of course I do, especially on the job.

“I get called a Paki when I am sorting out a domestic or a terrorist on the way home from the mosque. But they don’t win, those people.

“I can be a police officer now because people like Rosa Parks fought for us.

“And in 53 years they will have a black President.

“Who knows where they will be 50 years after that. That is proper change.”

>Back in 2015, a single image convinced me I would never watch Doctor Who. An older man running away from a giant explosion, pulling along a much-younger woman gazing at him in pure adulation. It exemplified everything that frustrated me about gender representation in film and TV.



>dumb roastie rambling



>Of course, there are exceptions. Moffat’s later “prophecy” plots involving Amy and Clara leaned heavily into the stereotype of having a woman exist to help a man’s journey, to the point where it ventured on “spawned from Adam’s rib” territory. The biggest victim would be Clara. Coleman was fun and expressive, and I liked her quite a bit, but she was given a bum deal. Clara wasn’t a character so much as an idea the writers thought was clever, leaving her with little to work with afterward. What value does “The Impossible Girl” have after she’s no longer impossible? The writers didn’t really think it through, and her storyline suffered until her character’s death.



This is how you know you have a shit writer, when they literally have to spell out what their message is instead of telling it through an engaging story with realistic dialogue.

It's just typical roastie cognitive dissonance.




Why do these freaks watch shows with male protagonists? Would she be happier if it was a younger man helping and gazing up at him in pure adulation? Of course not. The harpy would shriek even louder about the lack of female representation.



don't delude yourself there are just as many retarded men who don't understand Clara's plotline, probably a lot more



It's not cognitive dissonance, there's no concept of her worldview having been challenged and doubling down on mental hallucinations. She just has a very limited lens from which she's viewing Doctor Who and is completely missing what was actually going on.


The Eruditorum clique proved you can do left wing, feminist Doctor Who criticism without being a stupid pleb who hates Moffat/12/Clara. Why must the mainstream keep leaving it to filthy philistines? (I answered my own question there didn't I?)

That S9 promo image is legitimately terrible though, it doesn't communicate the themes of the series at all. Hell it would probably be a more fitting reflection of their relationship if 12 was the one gazing longingly at Clara.

Meanwhile, 30 years ago…



>When I was a young girl attending church, one of the women once said to me: “Behind every great man is a great woman.” I couldn’t have been more than seven or eight, but I distinctly remember replying to her: “Why can’t I be in front by myself?” She didn’t have an answer, at least not a good one.

The problems with this phrase go both ways. It's true that women should not be relegated to being in the shadow of men, but it's completely invalid and unearned empowerment to suggest that women are really the ones responsible for successful men.



Remembrance literally has a neo-Nazi organisation as part of the antagonistic faction. It's more timely than a wanky Vincent and the Doctor clone fetishising past glories could ever be.




You sure you aren't thinking of Silver Nemesis?



Remembrance has the 'association', the head of whom says this:

>RATCLIFFE: Yes. This country fought for the wrong cause in the last war. When I spoke out, they had me imprisoned.

They literally believe Hitler was right.



Ah, I guess it's been a while since I saw Remembrance.



To be fair, Silver Nemesis is a shit ripoff of Remembrance, so the mixup is understandable.

Maybe the Mirror just…formatted the lines really weirdly.



It will be Thin Ice level of obliviousness but trying harder to be relevant.

Not necessarily, I read it as her getting called "a terrorist [who is] on the way from the mosque".




You're both wrong, she gets called a domestic terrorist for sorting out a paki




I wonder if the way she delivers the line will make it any clearer.

Whether she's saying that she gets called "a terrorist on the way home from the mosque", or when she's on her way home from the mosque she gets called a "terrorist"

Even if Chibnall somehow got ousted (with ratings like for episode 1, it's not happening soon), who is there even to replace him? I don't know much about the British TV landscape right now.



mathieson-roberts coshowrunnership



I'd be fascinated to see that. Maybe they'd draft some random spare in to run the show in a non-writer capacity, and make up the loss of scripts by hiring as many random writers as possible and doing no "arc" whatsoever, just unconnected adventures



Almost none. I might be the most controversial episode of Doctor Who yet and that's just what Chibnall wants.

Nice cat.



>Someone who doesn't have experience with/like Doctor Who

Fucking this, please. I like Moffat, but fan producers were a mistake.


so did yaz just forget that rosa parks and people like her were arrested and beaten by police officers? or what



Chibnall and perhaps Blackman? forgot, that's for sure.



>fan producers were a mistake

That's going a little far for me, but that and fan Doctors like Tennant and Capaldi have unfortunately created this cancerous attitude that if you aren't already a massive fan of the show, you shouldn't be in charge of it.



Brooker or Lynch pls



Change the system from the inside.



Brooker's a fan too, albeit probably not as much of one.




He said not having the time to write an episode was sadder than any episode of Black Mirror he wrote.



why not destroy it from the outside?




Why didn't they do that? Chibnall has said few returning elements, no returning villains and no series arc and so far that seems mostly true. Why even have him in anything but an advisory capacity?


Do you think the netflix friendly Series 11 was Chibnall's plan or do you think the BBC reigned him in to the current blandness?



Because that causes more hostile resistance which will work against you



oh no, we'll have to make another guillotine to keep up!



You can't destroy institutions without resistance and repercussions that negatively affect you. Larping as an edgy murderer doesn't translate to reality.



But Sandifer said it would work!


Probably just my ignorance but wasn't British and American racism different back then?

Did Rosa Parks actually help anything in Britain?



Bit of column A and column B. I imagine the initial ultra populist push came from the BBC, which is why they searched for Chibbs in the first place, but a lot of what we've seen concretely seems to have his fingers on it.



verged sandyanon strikes again. aaalex right?



Well because of her people like Yaz can be a police officer now so yeah I'd say she did quite a bit don't you think.




t. verged




There's probably some valuable insights on this page somewhere but I cbf to read it myself right now.

That's a really nice speech for a guy named "General Lee" who pronounces "negro" as "nigra" every single time.

Anyways, it's interesting that besides the Nazis making racial purity seem like a bad thing, World War 2 also involved the largest government effort to educate and employ black men up to that point in history and by necessity involved a fair amount of ad-hoc integration oversees, factors which would pay dividends over the next 30 years.



Chris Chibnall?



It's especially weird since the Doctor already faced "the darkest evil of all" in Oxygen: Capitalism.



cosmic capitalism



>one space station going wrong was enough for the entire concept of capitalism to be destroyed forever



>implying it's not indicative of a larger trend throughout that point in time


Good to see episode 3 has become the racism episode of the season starting with series 10. Maybe this trend will continue forever


12x03 Huey



>Unquiet Dead has an immigration metaphor

>Gridlock was about the lower class getting caged up in traffic

>Planet of the Ood was about how slavery was bad

The third episode being the racism one has been a recurring trend for a while.

listening to /who/ cares on 1.5 speed feelscomfyman



Oh, you know, the dark, the sword, the forsaken, the temple. A logical pick and a dark horse pick.

What you say makes me wonder how Moff took the line, if he took it much at all.


Whithouse is out but there are a few workable legacy picks like Harness and Cross. I still think hiring a non Who writer with similar genre experience, like Howard Overman, could happen. Or really pushing for a stunt short run of a famous showrunner like Ianucci/Brooker/etc but that's probably completely unworkable and definitely completely unworkable at short notice.


That fast and it won't be long before you hear "Anon! Wakey wakey, it's all over now."


RTD never turned in a Ghost Monument-tier script that was just spinning its wheels until Tooth and Claw, arguably, and here we are.

The whole "Clara Who" debacle seemed from Moffat trying to overcorrect the fact that she was intended to be eyecandy and was treated as such, both in story and by the actual writing of the show which never knew what to do either her.

reminder he titled an episode 42


42 - sentient sun

The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood - silurians

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship - dinosaurs

The Power of Three - black cubes

The Woman who Fell to Earth - tooth man

The Ghost Monument - talking flying rags


The Tenth Doctor and Martha follow a distress signal, only to be trapped on a spaceship hurtling towards a sun and cut off from the TARDIS. With only forty-two minutes left till impact, can they save the day? Also, something else is on the ship and it wants everyone to burn.


Once more the Eleventh Doctor meets members of the Silurian race. However, this time, can he prevent them from being destroyed by humanity out of an act of self-preservation, or can he broker peace between them and bring about a better future for both races of planet Earth?

In the meantime, there are other questions that are left unanswered: Can Ambrose be trusted to keep Alaya alive? What is happening to Tony Mack's wound? Are the Silurians responsible for the empty graves? And what awaits Mo and Amy when a Silurian doctor is eager to see what makes them tick?


There have been many ways to invade the Earth, and the Eleventh Doctor has seen them all – or so he always thought. And then the human race wakes up one morning and discovers the world has been overrun by small cubes, which then proceed to do nothing at all. A plan is afoot, humanity is endangered – but by what and how and, above all, when? Thus begins the Year of the Slow Invasion.


Stranded on an alien planet infamously called Desolation, can the Doctor find her way to the TARDIS as she promised her new friends? Will her newest company be of any help when they're also racing against each other? And what exactly is "the Ghost Monument"?


At the brink of disaster the gang realise the destruction of the universe is imminent. Just who is Tegan Jovanka and what is going on with the two tardises?

Under the watchful eye of the mysterious white figure the Doctor must save the universe with Adric and returning guest star Sarah Sutton as Nyssa.


>there are people who unironically use "nurse who" and think it's funny

where do they live and with what sort of culture, that they still think nursing is a job for women and doctors are a male profession?



Maybe they're people who have never used a hospital in their lives? Like they come from anti-vaxxer families, and have no idea what doctors even look like except from what they see on TV.



But female doctors are well represented on TV



Maybe they only watch old TV shows? Like really old TV.

The only real difference between the coral and crystal consoles is the density of the random shit. The RTD era always avoided closeups of the console because there was very little to actually interact with, and drawing attention to it would have broken the illusion



the coral console got away with it though. There was never a good shot of the panels, and it wasnt in hd til 2009. they cant get away with it now


Fitz hesitated, then clubbed her over the head with the briefcase. She dropped back, the gun went off, Fitz grabbed it. The barrel was hot in his hand. He twisted it round, took hold of the grip. He looked up, to see Ed staring at him. Without time to think, he aimed at the man’s forehead and pulled the trigger. ‘No!’ shrieked Maddie. There were more screams from the crowd. People were running across the stage. And a red flower was blooming in the middle of Ed Hill’s forehead. I’ve killed him, thought Fitz. His hands felt bruised where the gun had jumped in recoil. Then, to Fitz’s horror, Ed’s eyes moved in their sockets, and he spoke. The voice boomed from everywhere, not just amplified electronically, but huge and real, as if he’d taken over the air itself. ‘Now you’ve done it, baby.’ An obscene giggle. ‘A fatal wound. End of the world.’ Blood was flowing down Ed’s face, dripping from his chin. Behind him, the TARDIS began to get bigger. ‘Oh, no,’ shrieked the Doctor. ‘No, no, no, no! The damage you’ve done to his brain – he’s completely out of control!’ A huge force caught Fitz and sent him flying backwards, rolling across the stage. He saw Sam fall: only the Doctor remained standing. The Doctor bent down, picked up the gun. Fitz saw it in flashes, as his body rolled away, helpless before the spreading force. The TARDIS was at least ten metres high, and it was distorting, melting like a huge blue candle. The Doctor was moving closer to Ed, the gun in his hand. The gun against the back of Ed’s neck. There was a shot. The Doctor’s face twisted in agony, his jacket spattered with blood. Then the Doctor was running, running towards Fitz. ‘Into the TARDIS! Now! Now!’

>terrorist on the way home from the mosque

So, uh, is she implying that there's a causal link between the two?

That's a bit racist, isn't it?


Is /who/ usually negative about Blind Wave? That's the impression I got but I'm liking their Doomsday reaction. One of them pointed out that there's a scene in the werewolf episode that is almost the same as the Doctor and Rose on either side of the wall but with the Doctor and the werewolf, the werewolf foreshadowing Rose the Bad Wolf.


>I get called a "Paki" when I am sorting out a domestic or a "terrorist" on the way home from the mosque.

>I get called a "Paki" when I am sorting out a domestic or a "terrorist on the way home from the mosque".

>I get called a "Paki when I am sorting out a domestic" or a "terrorist on the way home from the mosque".

Which one?



do you think that was an intentional detail?



I'd be a lot more positive about them if they didn't talk over most of the episode then complain it doesn't make sense.

They do review the episode for longer than any other reactor channel so I'll give them that praise. They don't always get it right but only one of them has seen the episodes before so it's fair enough.



Looks great



Both episodes are written by RTD so it could just be a visual that appealed to him during the writing of s2 that he unintentionally reused. I don't think it matters if he did intend for it since it's there in the episode and is a nice detail regardless.

Yeah, what puts me off thinking it might be real is the bit where he describes himself being condescending to his girlfriend and then says "she told me i was being condescending"



If it were a parody, I would have expected they would have found an excuse to use more meme terms like lobsters and whatever else. I think it's really just an autist who clung onto JP culture to fill an absence in his life, and lacked the self awareness to notice how being so obtuse about it was fucking up his relationship.

The second episodes of a showrunner say so much about their vision. For RTD, the question was 'what if the Earth was consumed by a ball of flame'? The End of the World effectively introduced the Time War, and changed the show forevermore. For Moffat, the question was 'What would a corrupt far-future starship version of Britain look like'? The Beast Below was a heady, political episode that set up a difficult moral dilemma and pondered on the nature of memories.

For Chibnall, the question is…'just who are Angstrom and Epzo'?

Therefore don't try and judge it from where you stand. I was right to do as I did. Yes, that I firmly believe. Even after all this time, you cannot understand. I dare not change the course of history. Not one line. And now, they're all gone. All gone. None of them could understand. Not even my little Susan. Or Vicki. And as for Barbara and Chatterton — Chesterton — they were all too impatient to get back to their own time. I wish I could go back, back to my own planet. But I can't… I can't… They're all gone now. My family. My friends. Even that sky. Oh, you should have seen it, that old planet! The second sun would rise in the south, and the mountains would shine. The leaves on the trees were silver. When they caught the light, every morning it looked like a forest on fire. When the Autumn came, a brilliant glow though the branches. And it was beautiful. They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The oldest and most mighty race in the universe. Looking down on the galaxies below, sworn never to interfere, only to watch. But that's the kind of life I could never have. A life of ordered calm, that's the curse of the Time Lords. I had to leave. Can you imagine what it would be like to be an exile? A wanderer, cut off from your own planet? If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds, and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you? Do you wanna come with me? Because if you do, then I should warn you — you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. Don't be afraid to be scared, either. Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard – I can feel it through your hands! There's so much blood and oxygen pumping through your brain, it's like rocket fuel. Right now, you could run faster and you could fight harder. You can jump higher than ever in your life. And you are so alert, it's like you can slow down time. What's wrong with scared? Scared is a super power! It's your super power! There is danger in this room, and guess what? It's you. Do you feel it? Courage isn't a matter of not being frightened, you know. It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway. Come on, then. Come with me. Hear me. Take my memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite, because I have lived a long life and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time. No space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man. I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. I've seen things you wouldn't believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken. I fought in a bigger war than you will ever know. I did worse things than you could ever imagine, and when I close my eyes… I hear more screams than anyone could ever be able to count! And do you know what you do with all that pain? Shall I tell you where you put it? You hold it tight… Til it burns your hand. And you say this – no one else will ever have to live like this. No one else will ever have to feel this pain. Not on my watch. Through crimson stars and silent stars and tumbling nebulas like oceans set on fire, through empires of glass and civilizations of pure thought, and a whole, terrible, wonderful universe of impossibilities. You see these eyes? They're old eyes. I am fire and ice and rage. I am the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun, ancient and forever. I burn at the center of time, and I can feel the turn of the universe. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. The entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty seven thousand miles an hour. And I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world. You think it'll last forever: people and cars and concrete. But it won't. One day it's all gone. Even the sky.



My planet's gone. It's dead. It burned, like the Earth. It's just rocks and dust. Before its time. Planets come and go. Stars perish. Matter disperses, coalesces, forms into other patterns, other worlds. Nothing can be eternal. Sad really, isn't it? People spend all that time making nice things, and other people come along and break them. But while there are fixed points throughout time where things must stay exactly the way they are, this is not one of them. This is an opportunity. Whatever happens here will create its own timeline, its own reality, a temporal tipping point. Every great decision creates ripples, like a huge boulder dropped in a lake. The ripples merge and rebound off the banks in unforeseeable ways. The heavier the decision, the larger the waves, the more uncertain the consequences. After all, the universe is big, it's vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles. And that's the theory. And you humans! Oh, might have spent a million years evolving into clouds of gas and another million as downloads, but you always revert to the same basic shape: the fundamental human. End of the universe and there you are. Indomitable, that's the word! Indomitable! What an inventive, invincible species. It's only a few million years since you crawled up out of the mud and learned to walk. Puny, defenceless bipeds. You've survived flood, famine and plague. You've survived cosmic wars and holocausts. And someday, there you'll be, out among the stars, waiting to begin a new life. Ready to outsit eternity. Indomitable. Impossible!


Consider their potential! From the day they arrive on the planet, blinking, step into the sun, there is more to see than can ever be seen, more to do than– no, hold on. Sorry, that's The Lion King. But the point still stands. And for centuries I've watched over you, tended to you, guarded you. You'll go to bed and dream of this moment, and when you wake up, you won't even remember me. Well, you'll remember me a little. I'll be a story in your head. But that's OK. We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? Cause it was, you know. It was the best. A daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. Did I ever tell you that I stole it? Well, I borrowed it. I was always going to take it back. Oh, that box. You'll dream about that box. It'll never leave you. Big and little at the same time. Brand new and ancient and the bluest blue ever. And the times we had, eh? Would've had… Never had. In your dreams, they'll still be there. The Doctor and the days that never came. And you'll forget. It's a human superpower, forgetting. If you remembered how things felt, you'd have stopped having wars. And stopped having babies. You'll find there's so much else to think about, to remember. Our lives are different to everybody else's; that's the exciting thing. Nobody in the universe can do what we're doing. But now, you're going. Been gone for ages. Already gone, still here, just arrived, haven't even met you yet. It all depends on who you are and how you look at it. Strange business, time. Think about me when you're living your life one day after another, all in a neat pattern. Think about the homeless traveller and his old police box, with his days like crazy paving. Believe me, your future lies here, with your loved ones, and not with a silly old buffer like me. One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. And I'm not running away, but this is one corner of one country on one continent on one planet that's a corner of a galaxy that's a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond, and there is so much, so much, to see. Because it goes so fast. I'm not running away from things, I am running to them. Before they flare and fade forever. And it's alright. Our lives won't run the same. They can't. One day, soon, maybe, you'll stop. I've known for a while. Maybe I am running. Maybe I've always been running, all my lives through time and space. Every second of every minute of every day for over nine hundred years. I fought for peace in a universe at war. Demons run when a good man goes to war. Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war. Friendship dies and true love lies, night will fall and the dark will rise, when a good man goes to war. Good men don't need rules, today is not the day to find out why I have so many. I am not a good man. I'm not a bad man. I'm not a hero. I'm definitely not a president, and no, I'm not an officer. You know who I am? I… am… an idiot! With a box and a screwdriver. Passing through. Helping out. Learning. I don't need an army. I never have. Because I've got them, always them, because love is not an emotion. Love is a promise. As for me, I must be going. After all, time can be rewritten. It's the end… the FINAL END… but the moment has been prepared for. There are some corners of the universe which have bread the most terrible things, things which act against everything that we believe in. They must be fought. There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea's asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea's getting cold.

You can tell how these Peterson haters really feel by how they scoff at the idea of a man not having a dad who loves them and wanting someone to look up to. As if not seeking guidance from an ersatz father figure violates them somehow. Fucking bullies the lot of them.

Jordan Peterson's self help message has the potential to improve the lives of people in a bad mental health state, but you cannot ignore the people who have gone too far and created an unhealthy personality cult around him. The person who made the reddit post goes way beyond just seeing him as a father figure, and it's completely valid to comment on how he's lost himself in a fandom at the expense of his most important relationships, while deluding himself into thinking he's just improving himself and it's everyone else who's wrong.

Sleep No More is one of the most underrated episodes of our time. A true thinking man's story.



There's a small sphere of lore in the books about how Time Lords have a specially unique relationship with "history", to the point that they're literally manifestations of the physical laws of the universe, and their very presence tends to warp the universe around them.



Of course, but the criticisms seem a bit hypocritical coming from clowns like Bob Chipman (who wrote a whole book about his life-long Super Mario obsession). Theology, philosophy, epistemology etc. mean nothing to these people, they just heard J.P said women aren't angelic beings made of pure light and they go into a spastic fit. They absolutely love to bully social retards like this guy who clearly has something wrong with him.

That's also true.


Why did Chibnall go out of his way to have 13 say "I'm calling you Yaz now, cause we're friends" when he could simply drop the line and let the audience understand by themselves she considers her as a friend?



because then the part of the audience who are only half paying attention will miss out

subtext is exclusionary, and Doctor Who is about inclusion



The general British public aren't clever enough to understand that.

So was Peter Capaldi


But Sleep No More is still a better episode than anything in Series 11 so far.



This is what I mean when I say Capaldi was a good actor but not a good actor for the Doctor. He didn't have the inclination or force of personality to brute force an energy and watchability into scripts he disliked, the way Tom and Smith could do so easily.



Capaldi literally stormed off the set though, neither Tom or Smith did that when they disliked a script.

Tom probably did do that



That is my point. Capaldi was a selfish child who threw tantrums when his moronic whims, like wanting the Mondasian Cybermen or the Chumblies back, weren't catered to. He didn't have a genuine love of the show and its fans the way McCoy or Tennant did. He thought himself above it.

It was a rumour that came out while they were filming, it accurately predicted that the episode was being shot in POV. The outline of it is that production crashed and Capaldi walked off set, Gatiss had to go back to the drawing board.

>The optics on it are honestly depressing. The Doctor has been such a layered and complex character for decades and Chibnall chooses THIS MOMENT to dumb her down into one-dimensionality?

Eleven's wackiness and playful nature comes off as The Doctor's internal environment being disordered, his mind is in a hundred places at once so he ends up making irreverent comments. Thirteen does the same thing but with completely mundane boring observations, which makes her seem ditzy and scatter brained rather than unpredictable and chaotic.

>when you have the backing of the media, the majority of news publications, all of hollywood, 90% of civil society , many charities and NGO's, the legal system, social media and the deep state but you are still "raging against the machine"





I think a majority of news publications, Hollywood, and senior US government officials would actually be a little bit hesitant to support sentiments like "Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses", but then this isn't the alternative world where up is down, the establishment preaches its own destruction, corporations are communist, and presumably the President is a folk hero.



These people genuinely believe large companies support communism and fund people to support communism online.

I really can't imagine Heaven Sent being the product of a first draft.


>I think a majority of news publications, Hollywood, and senior US government officials would actually be a little bit hesitant to support sentiments like "Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses"

The media is so thirsty for stories about racist cops that most of the time they just completely fabricate them, like with Mike Brown. Lots of clever framing and outright lies to make a violent thug look like the victim. They don't have to come out as say "fuck the pigs" when they can gently push a narrative and still retain plausible deniability.


No, they support woke nonsense instead of actually improving the poor situation of working people. (not that communism ever actually achieved that end). Why offer better wages or reduce the working week (expensive) when you can just hire more women and minorities and do some quirky advert celebrating Pride to get people on side (cheap).

You misread the tweet. And some other things.


"This episode has epic landscapes, big emotions… and monsters," says Chris, smiling. "I don't know what else you could want from television!"



Is this real



>no murray gold



To be fair to him he delivered on the epic landscapes. Desolation looked the part and was probably one of the best planetary landscapes Doctor Who has had.



Yes. From DWM preview for episode 6.



But he didn't have any input on how the location looked beyond going "yeah, we'll film there." The visuals were great in terms of Desolation because they could actually afford to shoot on-location, without having to use somewhere in Britain as a vague and poor approximation. Kudos goes more to the team that did the recce for the location, less so to Chibnall.



WHAT THE FUCK NO! Episode 6 is the Indian one I'm trying to stay hyped for! I don't need Chibnall ruining it with his vapid fucking oh god you know what, forget it, fucking forget it, there's no way the episode is going to be any good. I don't know what I was thinking.



Thank you.


the fisher king was pretty darn cool.



yeah I really got the impression that he had done impressive things, mostly just from a few choice words. And the fact that he seems to come back to life (maybe he had been faking his death) makes him seem impressive.




>…and monsters"

they're just Indian people Chris jesus christ

reddit discord user transcribed this I think from DWM:

>Demons of the Punjab

>Chibnall: This story is told through the perspectives of characters at ground level. It’s about Yaz and her grandmother’s secrets. Yaz now knows someone with a time machine so she decides to find out what happened to her nanni when she was young. But this is Doctor Who so when our gang goes back in history things inevitably get complicated.

>Chibnall: Like Rosa Parks, Partition was one of the stories I knew I wanted to tell when I came into the job.

Also Chibnall:


>"big emotions"

Anyone else a bit worried that Chibnall is only interested in collecting historical scenarios like fucking Pokemon to use as little other than a backdrop for generic gooey shit, and "big emotions", rather than a genuine interest in what these events tell us about the world?

>Big Finish's main range of Doctor Who audio stories features the adventures of mainly the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors, complete with large casts, sound effects and scores. Though some original-to-audio companions are occasionally used, the line typically features the original lead actors seen on television.

>Hope you're all excited for the beginning of the new series! Just wanted to let everyone know that we're working with the good folks over at BBC America to restyle the site for the dawn of the Thirteenth Doctor!


>It's easy to get into Doctor Who this year! Not only is there a new cast, there's a ton of new blood behind the scenes, too! We Doctor Who fans are unusually attached to the people who make their favourite programme, so you might as well get to know this new crew along with us!


How to Doctor Who

Intimidated by the long history of Doctor Who? Don't be. Just jump right in at this year's first story and enjoy it as a brand new show. These four concepts are probably all you'll actually need.

But if you get curious about the rest, take a look here at some specially-designed landing pages that'll help you get accustomed to the worlds of Doctor Who. Slowly. One bite at a time.



>Just jump right in at this year's first story and enjoy it as a brand new show

Imagine doing this and having S11 be your introduction to the show.

On the plus side, imagine doing that and then discovering literally any previous series of the show

>Ryan is the third companion of the Doctor to have the surname Sinclair and the first not to travel with the Eighth Doctor. Both Izzy Sinclair and Helen Sinclair travelled with the Eighth Doctor.




We all know that the doctor flipping about buttons,pushing knobs and whibbiling levers is just a physical meditation to access the tendrils of time, right?
