Spoilers guys:

The series finale is set in Belfast, and bombs are going off, british soldiers are gunning down irish kids. There's a plot twist at the end that it isn't set in the past, it's set in Northern Ireland after brexit leads to a customs border, and the ra destroy it, leading to peace being destroyed.



Nah waiting for it to turn up on VK silly.

But one of them's by Stephen Cole. And Stephen Cole sucks.






I'd assume he's referring to being optimistic about their situation (best hope) or pessimistic about it (only option). I guess he's saying "I'm not too sure on the mood of the room so I'll throw these two determinant states out to gauge how we're all feeling right now"

Knowing Chibnall it's going to be anything but ^

Reminder that when Chibnall leaves, the BBC won't pick the next showrunner based on their writing talent or if they even understand science fiction or fantasy, but on whether or not they can draw in big ratings. Meaning the next showrunner will be some guy who worked on a random detective show that inexplicably did extremely well.



damn Natalie Dormer looks like THAT?

Like The Ghost Monument would be a story where 2 found this group of people that worshipped a powerful object that supposedly let them talk to the dead, but the Doctor doesn't believe in all that shit and he finds that it's some weird alien or some computer projections.

I really love subtle things like this, implying that tardises have evolved over time, because of course they have. But it's not done in a flashy way, it's not really drawn attention to, it just looks sleeker, thinner, shinier, and has different doors (In the name of the doctor clip, the door slides open, in Hell Bent the doors are hinged). It's small touches like that that help with worldbuilding in a way I think

what does claudia think of series 11?



revolving cast


There are different kinds of 'good writer'. And they are not all good for the same reason. If you criticize Chibnall for simplistic plots, forgettable dialogue, seemingly unoriginal concepts, you are ignoring the fact that his priorities as a writer (and possibly as a show-runner too) may be elsewhere. It would be like saying Moffat is a 'bad writer' because the worlds he writes are not believable, or the characters he writes don't feel like real people. Both avenues of criticism are fine, but it isn't necessarily the best basis on which to make qualitative statements. Some people prefer the whimsical to the grounded, and vice versa, but that doesn't make either objectively inappropriate or 'worse writing'.

So the next time you criticize Chibnall's episodes on their writing, try to do it on their own terms and understand what they are trying to achieve, rather than simply making an unfavorable comparison with Moffat.





Claudia is an Epzochad. Based and redpilled



>I teared up at "My beautiful Ghost Monument!"

>And brains are better than guns as well, I liked that part.



The main problem with this is that she's projecting her own headcanon onto epzo. We never actually see that epzo has changed at all, because we don't see how 13 convinced him to agree to a draw. For all we know, 13 just convinced him that it was the best way to fuck over the race host as payback for putting him through everything


Seeing so many criticisms that talk about weak plots is really surprising to me. Doctor Who has relied on Alien Invasion/Base Under Siege plots for so many years. Chibnall could easily have just regurgitated another one of those, but he tried two completely different scenarios instead.

In 55 years the show has only done one Space Race before, and that was in 1982. There might have been another Big Game Hunter Chasing Humans plot in the past, but I can't remember it off the top of my head. Both of those are almost completely unique ideas for this show, yet he's being criticized for poor plotting. It's boggling my mind. If he had done a by-the-numbers, Alien Invasion of Earth, would everyone really be happier? Why?

this but drumpf is chib and liberty is doctor who



>If he had done a by-the-numbers, Alien Invasion of Earth, would everyone really be happier?

Of course not. We just wanted him to do something as high-concept as "Doctor shows Rose what the end of the world looks like" or "Doctor find the United Kingdom on top of a space whale, and has to figure out who is really in control" instead of "Two guys race for a prize".



if chibnall had actually done a space race well, people wouldn't be complaining

what we got was really just "travel from point A to B" with no concept of competition or efficiency, outside of shoehorned "I'm gonna beat you" lines that didn't actually relate to what we actually saw

>not "A Good Doctor"

If the title doesn't refer to a character that isn't the actual Doctor, what utter shrieking arrogance!

It was an absolute shitshow when that happened in S6, I think it will be less of a shitshow now but I think that's a bad thing honestly because it means the order really does matter less. Although I think Strevens is kind of off base with what he said unless eps 3-9 have the exact same status quo with Ryan and Graham, which I just can't see happening, surely there will be some development.

its skelly



it's evil



Sure thing! As I recall, a few months before the premiere someone on Twitter managed to see/find out that the S11 premiere had a funeral with Graham making a speech, through some crossed wires or supposition they erroneously reported that the scene would be a flashback filling in Graham's backstory, and that the funeral would have been for Graham's (non-existent in the actual series, it seems) dead son. A fellow /who/re filled me and some others in on this and it was rather exciting in seeming to tread ground Chibnall was skilled at, as evidenced by Broadchurch, and one could imagine the Graham/Ryan relationship taking on a certain texture if that report had been correct. In the end, it seems it was all conflation and half-wrong reporting. Rather disappointing in the end and a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing, so to speak, but it did engender some S11 hype before it started. I felt sorry for Kinda in particular, who was really looking forward to that relationship dynamic.

The most recent streamed story was Fall to Earth (pic related). Streams are now on Mondays and Wednesdays, usually starting at 4pm or 5pm London time these days, and then going for ~2 hours.



That's pretty interesting how it did actually have an element of truth to it, but it got distorted somewhere along the lines.



I'm sorry if I came across as rude or passive-aggressive, but I do want to know. Please. What are your detailed opinions on Torchwood?



It would've made Ryan look more like an asshole than he already does if Graham had a dead son though. Being a shit to Graham is one thing, but doing that to a guy reeling from both a dead wife and a dead son?

Indeed, I wonder if it was someone genuinely getting things wrong or if they added the dead son element just to add some flavour to it. This is something I enjoy with following series in real time, all these elements leading up to the actual release which affect our opinions on what comes. I didn't get any of this for the DW series I didn't watch live, you know? Which is a good thing and bad thing, in a way it's more "pure" to just watch a series without all the background noise leading up to it, but on the other hand, that background noise arguably does constitute an important part of the experience, at least in context or in terms of how it plays to audiences (this is part of why I really like the Eruditorum and how it grounds everything through that mindset).


I don't really know where to start; I've been organising/running a marathon of the totality of Torchwood here for months now and so I discuss TW at least 4 hours a week, I spent months collating the entirety of Torchwood into chronological order here https://fuckofferino.wiki/wiki/User_blog:NeoCLSTR/Torchwood_(Neo's_Archive), I kept watching Torchwood back in the day even after I dropped Doctor Who after the Series 3 finale, it's something I have so many opinions on it feels kind of floundering for me to encapsulate it briefly. I love RTD and I think it was a show that played to his strengths and philosophy a lot more than Doctor Who did. Torchwood is kind of the negative space of Doctor Who, as Gwen famously speaks to in the last episode of Children of Earth, it's a comment on the things Doctor Who and similar sort of platforms and narratives shy away from; it has the same element of being a portal into a nearby, more semiotically direct shadow world (the rift stuff, occasionally the fae stuff, and in general just the idea of transposing X-Files/Angels esque melodramatic American sci-fi narrative setting into Cardiff) but actively engages with the dirty corners of that. Torchwood cleaning up messes doesn't just feel like a vehicle for generating SF stories every week, it genuinely feels like them cleaning up the sorts of messes this genre would produce, seen particularly keenly in episodes like Adrift or the whole of Children of Earth or Small Worlds or even, sigh, in theory, Cyberwoman. It takes these genre elements seriously and follows them to logical conclusions while grounding it all in a very specific but eclectic aesthetic and setting. This is part of why the "Series 0B", of Torchwood throughout the 20th century, is so appealing, and why people here responded to it imo, because of how it reconfigures the familiar with the unfamiliar in ways that don't just feel like story fodder for the sake of story fodder, but actual interesting twists and lengthenings of the genre. This is all exemplified best in Jack himself, commented directly on in the text as being "wrong" in too logical a conclusion to a narrative ("I bring life"), too human, too long-lived. TW feels free to be existentialist and dark and nihilistic and actively confronting issues looming at the corner of these sorts of genres and their typical narratives without shying away and bathing them in the saccharine at the last minute, and that appeals hugely to me (and many others here I'm sure) as someone who's absorbed more of this genre than is comfortable. "Not one bit", "as a gift", "because it makes me happy", these moments aren't nullified later, they're left to stand on their own even as much as they repudiate so much of how audiences typically interact with these genres. Much can be said of how juvenile the show in particular could be at times, but TW is not a show that would ever bottom out its uncomfortable thematics a la Death in Heaven, or sidestep an uncomfortable foray into suicidality a la Twice Upon a Time. It is comfortable with how uncomfortable it is. And that's not even touching on how the actual promise of the brief eventually got met consistently with James Goss' stewardship of the audios, where he gripped onto the most interesting avenues of the premise (the screeching imperialism of the premise, the proximity to conspiracy narrative, horror as more the base to the stories than SF, the key to the whole series being that it is the space between other stories) and ran with them for good. Basically, Torchwood is a negative space in a genre I find overplayed, that explores issues I find fascinating in ways I find fulfilling in their commitment, and has a unique aesthetic and setting I find consistently fascinating and dynamic.

Just give it to the fucking Americans if we're gonna basically getting what they'd do anyway :'( Fuck everything



It's worse than I thought it would be. I've scattered my thoughts around anonymously, but basically I'm surprised how bloody boring it is? I though Chibs was at least capable of writing a story with forward momentum, like a Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, but it's just not the case.

I'm reminded of watching 42 when I was about 9 or 10 years old and thinking it was the most boring Doctor Who I'd ever seen.

A while ago I made a copypasta of all Chibnall's lines that pissed me off the most; that could be completely replaced with S11 lines now, most of which have already been thoroughly lampooned by /who/.

"Tim Shaw" bathos was insulting, so was the crane speech.

When I heard the premise of Ghost Monument, I was hoping for something like Season 24, which I'm a fan of, but we basically got Season 24 played 100% straight, with Epzo basically acting as a cardboard cutout version of Pex. I wasn't even sure how much I was supposed to find Epzo funny.

Jodie is underserved, I'm not enjoying her performance so far; and Bradley Walsh's acting gives me Michael Craze flashbacks, the sort of performance that was occasionally charming in 1965 but doesn't cut the mustard today.

It's early days, but I feel like I'm living through a cosmically shit era of Doctor Who.

>its Harriet Jones , davros has made her Supreme Dalek

>Again, there are lots of mad speculative rumours that it is Harriet Jones inside the red dalek as the 'Mother of all daleks', not quite sure I give that much credibility. It is being referred to as the 'Supreme Dalek' and there are some interesting pics of it, Davros and a chained up Dalek Sec (from which it is alleged all the rest of the daleks have been cloned). Anyway - until tomorrow, possibly not even til the following week - we'll have to be patient and wait and see (I'm so flippin' excited.)

>Thoughts on Rosa?

I want the episode to start with Rosa Parks's morning routine while Westminster Bridge plays in the background.

>Thoughts on the Stenza as arc villain?

I don't believe they'll go through with an Invasion of Time-style fakeout, I think it's for real, and I really do think "they [indirectly resulted in the death of] Grace!" is Chibnall's idea of a strong emotional hook. The fact that they're the only practical monster we've seen so far is telling. Also, the gathering coil was more frightening and evocative, the shot of it on the train was one of the only things I liked in Ep 1.

>Thoughts on how the general public is receiving the series?

Unsurprised, Chibnall's "and then, and then, and then" style storytelling appeals to the sort of people who wanted the Doctor to break out of the Confession Dial and then wreak out an epic vengeance on Gallifrey and then face Rassilon because he escaped and that's a loose end and then team up with Jenny from Series 4 because her not coming back is a plot hole, sort of people. My one irl friend who watches Doctor Who is hating it along with me though, so that's nice.


/who/ sings Doctor in Distress when?


Any other /who/res that could relate to the secret tv remote buttons in Silence in the Library?



What is there to relate to?




I once found a porn VHS in my dads office and I took it and hid it behind my bed. Once I went to look for it and it was gone. No one ever mentioned it to me


Operation: Chris Chibnall.



Did you own a remote with buttons hidden under a cover as a kid?



I really hope he's actually doing something to improve his situation while disconnected from twitter rather than just wallowing in self pity in isolation



Yes, I just didn't ever notice or remember that one of those remotes was in silence in the library



He'll be back in a few days to moan again. Its the Whelan Cycle



The little girl has one. It makes the books fly off the shelves



I remember the girl having a remote, I just don't remember it having one of those sliders to reveal more buttons


The Doctor uses the phone to call her and he shows up on her tv. It cuts off back to the regular tv shows so she finds the secret buttons on the remote

I know it's /who/ standard response No. 232787 but I really love WEAT/TDF, perfect end to Series 10. Should have rated it higher than I did when we were doing out Top 10 Best/Worst stories recently

I like most of Gatiss' episodes.

Gareth sounds like an awful guy to hang around with and his stories are also awful.


Loz sounds like too much of an unpleasant twat to even consider socializing with, and all his books are GOAT.

I only read Last of the Garderene, and that was basically every other Three story involving the Master and the Brig. I always thought in another timeline, if a coin were flipped the wrong way, Briggs would be playing Mycroft and writing all these mediocre NuWho episodes while Gatiss would be running Big Finish into the ground.

The Ice Warriors are dated, have no real structure as a villain and of course Gatiss would be the one to bring them back. It's the same as bringing back the Sea Devils - what's the point?

Also they're just shit episodes.

I never got why you would want to bring back the Ice Warriors back in NuWho anyway. The Ice Warriors never had a GOAT episode in old Who.



Presumably it feels validating for them, like what they're watching isn't actually for children and there's nothing at all infantile about them spending so many hours of their lives wrapped up in children's media. See the adjacent lapping up of deaths in YA fiction (amusingly, I see people actually verge about all the deaths in Harry Potter 7 though, so JK of all people may have taken her audience a bit too seriously there).



>Sarah Jane possessed by Courtney




Because they like escapism back to when they were children and had no responsibilities, and childrens shows that include any semblance of an "adult" concept makes it easier for them to justify indulging in the escapism they desire



What separates YA fiction from proper fiction in terms of content?



what a shit actress


Your argument is invalid.

100% correct


Now, now. Let's not look down on manchildren for consuming children's media. After all, they're responsible for the VNA/EDAs.



"Proper" fiction is a loaded term, if you mean what separates it from fiction ostensibly for adults then it's mostly the simplicity of the prose and thematics. They are essentially children's stories stretched out to a length that feels affirming for a teenager, with a veneer of either worldbuilding/edgieness/topicality/romance/genre-flavour to give some kind of hook. They make sense as books for young adults and I don't really begrudge actual adults reading little else besides them (beyond feeling very sorry for them), but the posturing around them as if they really are comparable to adult fiction, let alone literary fiction, is silly. Luckily, it's nearly exclusively espoused by those who only read YA fiction, so all the points are terribly written anyway.



that wasn't me



whoever it is, you should get together



>The Idiot's Lantern

Why did 10 tell Tommy to forgive his emotionally and physically abusive dad who was complicit in multiple kidnappings and showed little to no remorse for any of his crimes?



I hadn't thought of that but that makes sense for sure. I also think there's an element of second-opinion contrarianism there - "actually, it's smarter (and thus I am smarter) than it seems at first glance, for X reason only us smarties have worked out!". Though a lot of the time those headcanons are just people having fun, not genuinely trying to show off or take them seriously or anything.


Nice inclusion of the shorts! What did you think of Cold War's depiction of the Soviet elements?


I actively despise the story largely for that reason. "You should always be kind/reach out/mend relations with family members no matter what despicable acts they do" is a legit harmful, dangerous thing to frame as admirable in a show millions of children watch.


Why is it called YA fiction if it's mostly read by teenagers rather than actual young adults? The same goes for "adult animation". The only shows in that genre that actually seem to skew towards adults are Archer and Bojack Horseman, neither of which are particularly good.



Children's fiction that incorporates darkness, horror and violence makes those things seem mysterious, forbidden, tantalising and fresh, in a way that adults usually can't experience due to being completely desensitised.



I assume because of marketing; teenagers tend to prefer stuff explicitly geared towards adults rather than teenagers, for obvious reasons. It's also just a more helpful demarcation in general, "adolescent" or "teenage" sounds kind of patronising and is more wishy-washy.




>not particularly good

Why not?


Can white people sign the N word if they're interpreting rap songs for deaf people



Why would you interpret rap songs for deaf people instead of just printing the lyrics and giving it to them?



All throughout growing up, adolescents want to be treated more maturely and older than they actually are. Kids consume media they think is for teenagers because it makes them feel older and more mature, and the same goes for why teenagers consume YA media (and why it's called Young Adult in the first place)



because deaf people deserve to have fun at concerts too, skelly



This is why the boomerism of putting children lead characters in children's movies instead of adults is silly - kids don't want to be X disempowered little kid, they want to be the actual superhero!



You really would have to be deaf to enjoy a rap concert. Sad!


skelly likes brockhampton



I thought set design was authentic enough but obviously they got all inscriptions wrong. Everything written in russian on the walls is wrong, kek. And the guy who says "milaya moya" (my dear) in the beginning got it wrong too. Idk how this happens, if you just type it into google translator vocaliser you get the right pronunciation.


skelly had to google what brockhampton was because he had never heard of them before


>One of the triumphs of Davis's legacy is that he found and cultivated Moffat to replace him. If your on charge of a project that you want to continue after you leave it, a big part of your job is finding and cultivating the talent to carry on the task.

>Moffat kept going back to the same group of (white, male) writers for years, even when it was clear that none had the skills to run the show after him. Perhaps if he'd taken more risks with new writers earlier, he might have found someone better suited to have as a replacement.


And we're back!

Moffat enjoyed Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher. And fair enough too, it's a smartly written show. Doctor Mysterio is in a lot of ways a revival or a crossover with that show. I know he was also a pretty big Trek fan.


>Writes Hell Bent, one of the only episodes that could serve as a truly great ending for the show

>Two Christmas specials later, writes The Pilot, one of the few episodes that could serve as a truly great intro to the show

How can one man be so fucking epic



I thought set design was pretty authentic and I liked the tone of it.

But obviously they got all inscriptions wrong. Everything written on the walls in russian is wrong. And that guy who says "milaya moya" (my dear) in the beginning is mispronouncing it so badly that I didn't even catch it that it was russian when I first watched it.

Idk how western media always gets japanese or other languages right, but there are always problems with russian words.

As you come into this world, something else is also born. You begin your life, and it begins a journey towards you. It moves slowly, but it never stops. Wherever you go, whatever path you take, it will follow. Never faster, never slower, always coming. You will run. It will walk. You will rest. It will not. One day, you will linger in the same place too long. You will sit too still or sleep too deep, and when, too late, you rise to go, you will notice a second shadow next to yours. Your life will then be over.


Does everyone hate Doctor Who now? I thought it's been pretty good so far.



nobody cares what you think


If you think because Doctor Who is dead we are weak, then you understand very little. If you were any part of killing it, and you're not afraid, then you understand nothing at all. So, for your own sake, understand this. We are the Whovians. We're coming to criticise Chibnall, and we will never, ever stop.

what the FUCK do you mean and who do you mean it about


Talking Angstrom and Epzo - the whole point of that meme (in my opinion) is that it's so bizarre to have a civil war over characters, the only detail you know about is their names. It's all set around that incredibly meaningless synopsis. So after the airing of actual episode the meta meaning kind of disappeared, making the meme unfunny. Personally I thought Susan Lynch was very nice as Angstrom and probably had a better character than Shaun Dooley. So there shouldn't be any shame over preferring Angrstrom over Epzo when meme died out



No, it'll keep chugging along for another decade because "it's like RTD again"
