Rosa Killed Who

Front of the bus



last threard




I've always been firm that Chibnall will do 3 successful years of Doctor Who that will get good ratings and by all metrics be successful.



That is what you want or what you think it is gonna happen?



It's not what I want but it's always been what I've been confident will happen.


reposting in new thread: which companion (including audios/books/comics) had the shittiest life because of the doctor? discuss.


I want him to leave ASAP and if gap year is the way, bring it on


Do you really think "competing with Netflix/capeshit", "it's a recruitment year" Chibnall will have the show off the air for a year?



hope so



we never really got what happened to Peri or Mel



>blocks your path



I beg your pardon



The show is dead and getting raped is the next logical step.

gay-fi confirmed



I’m not that far into the books but Fitz becomes a member of Faction Paradox because of the Doctor doesn’t he?




The author is trans

don't disturb Kinda, he's driving



not really him

Fitz died and his clone got a partial copy of his memories



I'm going to assume you're being serious when you saw Chibnall is smart enough not to have a gap year, because I'm inclined to agree. There's no reason to spend so much time, effort and money with "recruiting" new fans if they're just going to be left high and dry by the end of it. They're trying to appeal to an audience that has very little loyalty to the show in the first place, and when there's constantly new things for those people to watch, Doctor Who has to keep a steady pace of release to even compete, or people are just going to forget about it.



I know, buy why would they list the BOOK it as lgbt?

I'm 100% serious. As soon as he started talking about his goals for S11, and to an extent his hiring at all, it became clear that he was committed to making the show consistently popular again. Everything about the actual episodes indicates that as well - and it's working. There's no way we're getting a gap year, it's antithetical to the BBC and Chibnall's entire approach to DW now.



will Jodie pull an Eccles?



Because LGBT people looking for that tag also want to find stories written by LGBT people


If there is a gap year I will piss myself laughing with Chibnall's entire recruitment plan falling apart



will you film it and post it?


Based Chibnall bringing in as large an audience as possible for his successor.



Can we get the hype to cast next Doc already?



>next Doc



It will have been ten years since that episode this Christmas. Perhaps Chibnall will reference it by actually introducing the next Doctor in a multiple Doctor Christmas special



by the way Graham called Doctor "DOC"

did he not hate it?


Imagine we have the current doctor meet the next incarnation and then the show continues with the next incarnation and we skip the regeneration.



I loved that myself.


>next Doctor



You know they gave the doctor more regenerations as well as unnumbered incarnations, right? I know fandom used to always say 13 is final but that’s changed




it would be amazing

13th Meets 14th

when they are to abide farewell, the camera follows 14th, new ending titles

we never see 13th again

BF does her regeneration in 20 years from now



your point?



I would say Fitz is a strong contender for the companion who's had the worst life because of the Doctor… in fact, I don't think any other companion has had it even vaguely as shitty as he has. There's a lot more to that Faction Paradox story than him simply becoming a member. I think you'll enjoy it, and also come to see what I mean when I say he's had a tough time. I was going to spoiler-text some detail, but there's no point. I think it's best left as a surprise.


Another doctor isn’t inpossible of something to be scoffed at

That's a wholesome 8 on the right


I have a friend who is dating Mandip Gill, Segun Akinola, Matt Strevens, Jodie Whittaker and Alan Cumming. My friend has managed to find out that Paul McGann is returning as the Eighth Doctor in a Mesopotamia-set Christmas special that will also see the return of John Barrowman as Captain Jack and Graham's transition into a "Force ghost" like entity who uses telekinesis to maintain the TARDIS custard cream dispenser. Following the Christmas special, there will be a gap year and the show will return for episode 12.1 on Sun. 12th April 2020, which happens to be Easter and also the date of a planned missing episode announcement.

Yeah, some of the promo pictures for the TVM were actually really nice, and far more accurate to 8's characterisation than the dour pocketwatch one that always seems to get focus.



Yeah, that watch image is pretty dour. I think it's used as often as it is because it's one of the more HQ photos of the lot.

True enough. I have larger versions of some of the promo photos, but they weren't particularly easy to find. My favourite is probably the promo image that's so HD, you can zoom in and really appreciate how obviously Paul's hair was a wig. I'll see if I can find it.



Oh, oops, sorry. Didn't mean to attach that picture with that text. That's not the wig image!


McGann would've looked really wierd with short hair and that outfit. It'd be like having Eccleston wearing Pertwee's crushed red velvet

On a serious note, reddit or not, I do think his NOTD look is his best, but I think a big part of that is the fact that the TVM outfit was rather awful. The idea was nice, but the execution was not. I also think the TVM wig is really shit, and it would've been nicer if he'd had his natural hair before he cut it (which wasn't far off the wig, stylistically, but looked far better). Of course, the TVM outfit makes sense in-universe, because it was a cheap costume that he stole, and the shoes were borrowed from Grace, but taken out of context, it doesn't really hold up against the NOTD costume.



TVM outfit is one of my favourites



A pillar of hope that is destined to crumble beneath the weight of expectation.

Oh, don't get me wrong, it's one of my favourites too, but I have a vendetta against that trousers/shoes combination. The top half of the costume is good, then you get to the bottom and it just feels like a disappointment.

I honestly don't even think the BBC would allow Chibnall to have a gap year for the show after finally gaining some viewers again after the previous gap year lost half the audience. He'd more than likely be replaced if he was that unable to deliver another season a year from now, something RTD/Moffat had no trouble doing for their first two years.



He also just looks a bit young a doughy faced.



kek, thought you meant Capaldi at first but it took me a minute



Agreed. It's simply not going to happen.


>tfw it happens anyway



>He'd more than likely be replaced if he was that unable to deliver another season a year from now, something RTD/Moffat had no trouble doing for their first two years.

I wouldn't say Moffat had no trouble delivering Series 6.

he didn't ask for a gap year, and Series 6 was the most popular the show has ever been in the US. Moffat even was included on the world tour promoting the new series back in 2011. He was just as beloved by fans back then as Matt/Karen/Arthur/Alex.

He even had time to write Sherlock that year AND the Tintin movie

>yfw the composer after Segun is Marigold



Yes but Series 6 was a production disaster and had to be split into two blocks.



I think the youthful look works well for his early characterisation, not so much when it comes to his later stories.

damn my memory must be hazy of that then, what was such a disaster about it? I mean it was still released and the first half of Series 6 is pure kino with at least 2 great episodes in 6B as well, which is more that can be said for Series 7. Plus Moffat still didn't need a gap year


Can someone who understamds the TV industry explain how shit writing has increased the shows popularity?



People are stupid, and just want "simple relatable human stories". They've also really been pushing the marketing for series 11, out of fears that a female Doctor would fall flat.



no big brain thinky stuff


All of the interesting complexities of the 11th and 12th Doctors? Yeah, people hate that shit. They just want a character who's nice, optimistic, and funny, and doesn't dress like an old man.


Big Eyed Beans from Venus!


Making a list of how many episodes the showrunner has written per series but I'm wondering, do you guys consider Christmas specials to be an extension of the previous series or the following series? ie: would The Christmas Invasion be an extension of Series 1 or Series 2? I've personally always thought of it as the unofficial first episode of Series 2 since New Earth is such a shitty way to start a new series but that's just me



it's more of the soft-reboot aspect. New Doctor obviously and a new showrunner after 8 years of Moffat, plus the clean slate after Capaldi. It gave people a place to jump in again. It's the same as Series 5 essentially, but that came right off the heels of Tennant. It's too early to tell whether or not viewership maintains this high. The Eleventh Hour had 10.09 million overnight viewers and by The Big Bang ratings were down to 6.7 million, but then back up to 12.11 million for A Christmas Carol. It all depends. Although if Chibnall takes a gap year then the viewership will tank just like it did between Series 9 and 10.



Christmas specials are often marked (Series)x00



I think it's entirely relative to how you conceive of each series of NewWho, as the Christmas specials form their own unique production blocks that are literally not part of either series. As you say, The Christmas Invasion makes a lot of sense to associate with series 2, but Last Christmas makes more sense to associate with series 8, and so on. They're not part of any series so it's really up to you where to group them, if they must be grouped.





yeah I'm just doing it by year I think, but certain cases like Mysterio/TUAT I'll lump both in with Series 10

5/12 (1 co-written) + 2 Christmas Specials


>Series 11 (2018)

5/10 (1 co-written) + Christmas Special



The last one is wrong I think. Chibnall wrote 5 episodes, in series 11, none of which are cowritten. I think it's more like:

>Series 11 (2018)

10/10 (5 cowritten) + Chrimbo spesh




Chibbs wrote 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10 on his lonesome. 3 is cowritten with Blackman.



"Series 10" has a lovely plethora of Christmas moments depending what you include, from the Christmas scene in the Pilot to Mysterio, TUAT, Husbands if you're like me and insists it belongs more with S10 than S9…


Does anyone have the google drive with all the episodes?




I just did it mostly by year since each Christmas special could really go either way and I didn't feel like having to explain each one. Like The Next Doctor is the Christmas Special following Series 4 but is always considered to be part of the 2009 Specials



Just the 12th Doctor?



If you go back one folder, there's episodes for every Doctor.


if Moffat was in charge of Series 11, the Christmas special would 100% be a remake/retelling of the Wizard of Oz

Got that one now. Just saying.



stormys honeyed foreign tones



do you not worry that with such a large cast, that you will all feel 2 dimensional? maybe one of you gets like zero lines for 3 episodes?



The idea here is to focus entirely on the conversation itself rather than showcase personality. In this particular ep, there are large sections where clearly some featured have a lot more to say than others, and that's a good thing - trying to give everyone an equal due is silly because obviously everyone is going to have more to say on different things most relevant to their experience and opinions. The aim of this podcast isn't to make any person seem three-dimensional, it's just to feature /who/re conversation about an episode for an hour. As for "maybe one of you gets like zero lines for 3 episodes", I'm not even sure what you mean by that my dude, as the cast shifts members every week.



I think it's better to have less companions otherwise they feel 2 dimensional

something that another podcast I used to listen to (Sleepycast, 10/10 would recommend) did when they were still making episodes was to have really faint classical music in the background that did fucking WONDERS to make the conversation feel more natural and fills in any dead air space or awkward silences there could be without being super noticable by the listener. And even when you do pick up on it you get used to it almost immediately. Maybe next episode you can test it out with some more ambient Marigold/Classic Who OST tracks? Just an idea.



i love broken mirrors referencing such tiny moments of certain episodes and we're instantly able to think 'oh yeah that's definitely similar'

Well that's uh… Kino??

The idea of having River doing a Clara and exploring some of the Doctor's adventure could be either really shit or kino.

A guest dropped out so Neo stepped in.


So have Yas and Graham still not talked?



They briefly said something to each other in the hotel this week I think


File: 19b67a77ebf5272⋯.png (107.33 KB, 238x305, 238:305, chibhappy.png)


Why, anon? What would they talk about?



>“There simply isn’t time to finish filming and get all the editing done before next October. It’s too tight. We’re facing a gap year.”

Assuming this source is genuine (which is a big assumption), that would suggest that a gap year is not something they -wanted- to do but that they've been forced into due to being behind schedule.

It would be antithetical to the BBC and Chibnall's entire approach, but that doesn't mean it can't still happen in the right circumstances, if they have some ideological aversion to a split series.

But Broadchurch took gap years between each series - for all we know, maybe that's part of chibnall's formula to maintain status as "event television" by avoiding saturation



>before next October

So… Air it in November? Even if they don't get it out for 13 or 14 months I don't see how not getting it by October equals a year off



Was the guest Immigrant?


You better not be like James Blake, Blake the Snake! He gave all bus drivers a bad name! She had a T-shirt that said "Spirit of Rosa"




They can't air it within 10 weeks of christmas, which means it would have to wait until the new year


>I came back from the creek for this? Four flat tyres and a smashed-in windshield? What the hell happened?


>Well, I can't drive that.

<Oh, no. You go on home. Yeah, we'll cancel the route.

>So much for that protest. This bus ain't going nowhere.

>Did you hear that? Everything we do, Krasko's a step ahead. He must've deliberately smashed up that bus himself.

<We've got to fix this. James Blake has got to drive Rosa's bus home tonight.


If they changed the bus, doesn't that already change history?



bootstrap paradox

maybe they cased the protest and her seat was available if Ryan was not there

reminder that the director thought it would be a clever idea to use a blaster shot at the camera to transition between scenes



Of course not, anon. It was always the second bus, they just didn't know that until they had to do it. The entire circumstances of the bus protest are revealed to have been staged by people attempting to subvert or recreate their memory of a historical event that, it turns out, they are the originators of. The story renders the bus incident random; no longer something that naturally arose from the conditions of the world.



It was naff, but at least it tried. I'll take deliberately stylised naffness in Doctor Who over Jamie Childs-style suffocating blandness any day.



honorable mention to jodie pausing at "secondary charger for a-" when the blaster didn't go off for another quarter second



Didn't they explicitly mention the ID of the bus that rosa protested on, and isn't that part of history therefore now changed?



Imagine a picture of Chibnall shrugging here.





Was the guest Judy?



No, Judy.


Do we know Chibnall's thoughts on a split series?

I think filming on S11 had started by this point last year, and filming for S12 hasn't begun yet. Something has to be different regarding when or how the next series is broadcast.



Yeah I'm thinking we're in for some fucking KINO on Friday.



Chibnall is actually really good at writing for a large cast of complicated, human, characters, see Torchwood and Broadchurch.

He shines when he's able to tackle subjects like sex, affairs, grief, loss, despair, family etc. He has to tone it down when writing DW and keep things family friendly. Unfortunately he can't strike a balance and tones it down so much for DW that it feels condescendingly childish.

It's a common opinion to say tosin's not doing a good job, but I think he's just portraying an introverted character who doesn't emote much, but with occasional moments of confidence



He's actually somewhat charming here wtf?

that'd have been perfectly fine if the location didn't change to an entirely different one. An interior of a warehouse with dim lighting -> an exterior with bright sunlight and sand on the ground is jarring as fuck no matter what transition there is. If they used that shot to cut to Thirteen/the trio in another room of the warehouse or some similar setting/visual, it'd have worked perfectly.

Slightly unrelated but I've started to think that the problem might not so much be the directing in Series 11 (I was the one who suggested the easy way to shoot webm related and have it not be awkward looking as well as the guy who wrote those long posts about Capaldi/Coleman's acting and about the cameras/lenses used for nuWho over the years) but actually the editing is what makes everything feel so awkward and weird.

Every time there's a dialogue scene that cuts between singles of each character alone in the frame when they deliver a line of dialogue, there's always a brief moment before and after they deliver the line where the shot sort of hangs on them, almost like the camera is waiting for them to deliver the line. It makes it feel amateur and stilted. Compare it to the editing of shot/reverse-shot scenes in the Moffat-era. Dialogue will overlap between shots, like for example we'll start hearing Clara's response to the Doctor while the camera is still on him, and then they'll cut to the shot of Clara as she's finishing her thought. It keeps the momentum going and feels a lot natural. The way they're doing it now is like "okay now Jodie deliver your line… Okay now cut to Mandip, Mandip deliver your line… okay now cut to Bradley, Bradley deliver your line… okay now cut back to Jodie, Jodie deliver your line…" There's no momentum, no excitement.

For what it's worth, he just says "move the car" - so he only had to steer it to the side of the road rather than drive somewhere




His dyspraxia only affects him when the plot needs it

Krasko's last scene would have been better if he ran away like a bitch before getting shot, or ran at Ryan to try and stop him before getting shot, or at least reacted in some way to the idea that he might get condemned to literal death with his stolen equipment. It's really devoid of stakes as is and a missed opportunity for a fitting final image.



Does 13 even react to finding out krasko was sent to the distant past and effectively condemned to death?

The finale will involve the rags, Krasko and the rest of the series villains working for the Stenza to conquer Earth



But that would require the audience to have previous knowledge



Be serious, anon. No it wouldn't. The episodes are so incoherent to start with that a shitload of random baddies turning up in the finale would just be handwaved.



fuck you're right



I suspect that this (and the Call Of Duty scene) is part of a lead-in to an eventual confrontation between 13 and Ryan over his methods.



That would be nice, but I'm not as optimistic



She doesn't care when he tells her he sent Krasko to an almost certain death by sending him to the distant past though

£2 to the man who re-scores the bus scene from Rosa with a suitable soundtrack.



I think, in the situation, things were just too busy for her to really question it at that time. But the episode was careful to have her explicitly ask him what happened, so I'm thinking she'll bring it up again in a future ep.



Weren't they surrounded by sniperbots when she went on her anti-gun rant tho


A__s in the _



Her "anti-gun rant" is more nuanced than people say–it's not just that he was using a gun, but that he was running off with no plan besides "shoot 'em up!" (That's why her later reply isn't "brains over bullets!"–she destroyed the robots with a strategy, not just blind violence.) And in that situation, she was telling him "don't do that!" before he went out there, and then a quick "told you so!" when his plan backfired.

In "Rosa", she isn't hunkering down underneath a structure, but a minute or two before a big time-risking event–she doesn't have time to really chastise Ryan, or even think about the implications of what he did.

>Gold re-orchestrated the Grainer/Derbyshire theme as a kind of pompous symphonic dance. His relentless underscoring showed a similar debt to John Williams. While many diehard “Doctor Who” fans from the last decade adore Gold’s work, I find it airless, charmless, and far too on the nose. To be fair, Gold is a professional who can write a good melody, and it was undoubtedly a group decision with Davies (and then with the next producer, Steven Moffat) to use music that tells the audience exactly what to feel, from desolate to heroic.

>Back when I was a young fan of Tom Baker, Dudley Simpson offered far less hand-holding than Murray Gold.

>Akinola has more or less restored the theme tune to the original Grainer/Derbyshire conception. Not much remains from Gold’s overstuffed orchestra in the bulk of the underscoring, either. There’s a bit of a heroic “Doctor’s Theme” for the heart-tugging moments, but we couldn’t expect the showrunners to get away from that entirely, could we? Those obvious themes seldom appear: the soundtrack is now usually aimless intervallic tunes, simple drones, and haunting effects. It’s a blessed return to an alien soundscape.

I hope Moffat brings Marigold over to his Dracula show. I know David Arnold & Michael Price did the music for Sherlock (and they did a great job at that) but Gold is one of the best (maybe even *the* best) composers for a television show ever and as far as I know his schedule is free.

13th the worst Doctor?


THE new series of Doctor Who may have got off to a great start but its old showrunner fears it risks looking cheap.

Steven Moffat was executive producer from 2009 up to the moment Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall took over the reins last year. The ex-boss believes a lot more money needs to be pumped into the sci-fi classic if it is to ­compete with other big TV shows, particularly in the age of Sky, Amazon Prime and Netflix.

On an episode of the Sitcom Geeks podcast, the ­interviewer told Steven: “My memory of Doctor Who is very much of a piece of cardboard that he is standing behind.”

Steven replied: “That is the big challenge of Doctor Who now… running the risk of looking as cheap now as it did then, ­compared to what the rest of TV is doing, unless they put a whole lot more money into it. And it’s still an inexpensive show.

"A show that ­generates as much money as Doctor Who should be getting more of it back, frankly.”

The show pulled in 9million viewers when it returned to BBC1 with Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor. But by episode three, that number had fallen to 7.3million.

Steven warned that Doctor Who has to compete with the millions invested in TV shows by new ­channels and streaming ­services.

He added: “Television didn’t use to look the way it looks now. When we watch now, we watch something that’s quite often better than cinema.

“Have you have seen the recent Game Of Thrones? I haven’t seen anything in the cinema that matches their battle scenes.”

Steven makes a good point. But I wonder what he did to boost Doctor Who’s budget in the eight years he was boss?


It is the year 7855, and the daring rogue Krasko is taking part in a space heist. The prize is 20 million ultra-cred in precious hyperion stones, enough to buy a planet, or at least put down a hefty down payment. Unfortunately, as the crew is moving in on the freighter, their gravity shields inadvertently bump Asteroid 284996, codename "Rosa Parks", into a nearby pleasure cruise, killing two thousand passengers.

I was sitting there with bated breath the whole time.

It's funny, looking back, that we were exactly right that Graham being a bus driver was going to be directly relevant to the story.



let's be honest, he probably wasn't a bus driver until chibnall wrote rosa and decided graham needed something to do


What filming block is arachnids from?



It's funny to think that Grace met this old man dying of cancer, and asked if he was like James Blake "the Snake", the racist driver who had Rosa Parks arrested.

And when he said he didn't know, she married him.



I find it somewhat unsettling that people tend to forget that Malorie Blackman wrote Rosa.



that might be the worst piece of writing in the whole series so far honestly, it's so hard to imagine that interaction happening


trust me im not forgetting, im only attributing the bad parts of the episode (such as the bus driver graham thing) to chibnall, im fully confident every good and unsettling part of that episode was written by malorie

It's just tradition. Thirteen's post-regen wasn't even really that bad.



Tradition for the sake of tradition is one of my least favourite things in the whole world.



The idea is that by the climax of the story they've "come into their own", so it's the payoff to the suspense of what they're going to be like. Eleventh Hour didn't bother much with this though.

Are you accusing Anderson's co-stars of acting like they're in a high school drama class?


um, people don't speak in poetry in REAL LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!, moff is SHIT!!!!!



I was using hyperbole as a means of rhetoric to characterise the "normal" opinion where people seemingly require performing with a certain level of emotive range to be considered a "good" actor, when depending on a character's personality type it may be perfectly valid for them to not be particularly expressive.


It should be pointed out that Juno Dawson explicitly said she just wrote the various Doctors as "the Doctor". This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but Thirteen's a pretty nuanced incarnation, and writing her like a normal NuWho Doctor risks a 10 or 11 clone. (She's closer to a mix of 8's straightforwardness and honest joy with some of 5's calmness, mixed with some of 9's fiercedness. Quips about olives isn't really her style.)

However, these are just a few lines in a whole book. Too early to judge.


>gets more flak than he deserves for portraying an introverted character

Danny's also legitimately repressed and has trauma. It's just…Samuel could have been allowed to add a bit more charisma. Honestly, Series 8 needed a "12th Doctor with Danny" ep without Clara, and we might feel about Danny differently. Danny never really got a focus (in part because this series is sort of from Clara's view, and she never fully focused on him.)

>not everyone needs to be big emotions and super expressive like a high school drama class

I think a lot of the complaints about Jodie's performance of 13 is due to this, incidentally. Where 10 or 11 or even 12 might have gone dramatic, Jodie plays Thirteen as being quick and to-the-point, without much fanfare. I think this gives some audiences the feeling that "something's missing" with 13.



>Thirteen's a pretty nuanced incarnation, and writing her like a normal NuWho Doctor risks a 10 or 11 clone

Immigrant I love you but sometimes you really make me laugh



A quirk of 13's I'm starting to notice is she'll get hooked on a word or a sentence structure and repeat it. Listen to how she uses "traces of artron energy" in Rosa, every time hitting it with the exact same rhythm and cadence, like it's a refrain. I think this is where some of the concern about her asking questions out loud comes from, she'll put a topic into the rotation and hit it two or three times in the same way as she's going along.


Best moments of Rosa:

>The Doctor sincerely giving her companions the opportunity to go back to the TARDIS and stay out of trouble when she realises what she's dragged them into, but the companions decide to stay (Ryan in particular noting that he can make it a few hours if other black people have to spend the rest of their lives there). This is a conversation we have never seen in Doctor Who before.

>Ryan asks Rosa if he can join the fight, and she asks him if he's a spy for the police or FBI. This is probably the only point in the episode where institutional authority is accused rather than quietly excused, and there is a clear sense of Rosa as someone involved with a resistance (rather than a lone wolf who happens to be mates with MLK).


thoughts on Clara's theme?



I know how it sounds. But she's actually not just like Ten—she's less haughty, and more matter-of-fact.


Can't tell if that's an intentional quirk of 13's, or just a side effect of these early eps being some of the first that were filmed (unlike with previous Doctors. Eleventh Hour was filmed after the actors had gone through filming some other eps for experience, amoung other reasons.)


13 acknowledging the dangers of the time period is another nuance.


Very soothing.



I don't think episode is very pro-police. Fair point Gig made about "not all cops" line by Yaz but that scene in the motel presented a cop like a pure evil, with a very sinister score playing.

As for the scene, I agree 100%, that was very nice, wish it was longer.



Not once does Yaz excuse the racist cops, and it's not like "good cops who don't resort to violence first" don't exist, despite the systemic faults. Also, the entire Alabama police is a constant threat of the episode, as an institution.

>As for the scene, I agree 100%, that was very nice, wish it was longer.

I believe some scenes of that got deleted. Might show up on the Blu-ray, i reckon.



Never been a fan of it, definitely my least favourite companion theme of marigold's

The melody feels too "deliberate" and simple. Something about the tempo and general repetitiveness that's present.

Of the part of the theme that gets reused, there's only really two short phrases, and they both just get repeated a lot. Many of the issues with the theme are similar to the problems with IATD, just with a lower magnitude of severity.

Much prefer the more nuanced ethereal themes of amy, martha and rose



Does the episode have a single positive depiction of the police force? The fact we know yas is a police officer never becomes relevant to the plot, outside of one "hey I'm not like that" line which only serves to distance her from how the police are being portrayed



All true, I just meant to say that in my opinion there's very few stuff that can be interpreted as institutional authority apology and in that regard this ep didn't fall into some obvious traps.

Finally saw Rosa and from what I was reading on previous threads I thought it'd be really bad.

I actually really liked it, the pop song on the bus and credits was a little much but other than that it was definitely my favourite of the season



>it was definitely my favourite of the season

Is that a high bar?



Those are basically my thoughts as well

Haha no not at all. It was a bit better than The Ghost Monument. Fuck the series opener.

I mean, for what it was, it was pretty solid. I can't really think of much flaws.

I loved the "doo-wop" 50's popish music at about 2:50mins into the epzode, reminded me of Delta and the Bannerman, which helped my mood going into it, heh.


Glad I'm not the only one :)

48 people, 6 of whom it will emerge were actually just dead and had left the TV on.

GB added a chat room with their big revamp and only 3 people are using it.



Yeah, I tried not to do that…it still happened anyway but I do think leaving it a few days after seeing the threads and cooling off a bit, it really helps.

I feel really weird saying this but I am actually starting to enjoy this series. The writing seems to have settled down and is more comfortable, but idk how much is owed to Blackmans' writing.

Even if the whole series stays as good as Rosa, I'd be pretty happy.



Rosa got 6.39m

Do you really not expect any decline?


on the rumour mill today: a new animated missing doctor who episode will be shown at Missing Believed Wiped in december. likely macra or evil as paul vanezis was spotted filming what appears to be a dvd special feature for evil of the daleks


I expect high 5s

Like 5.9 or 5.8



No. Good word of mouth about Rosa will bump up episode 4.



It's Evil.



Oh that’s an interesting thought


I'm going through Classic Who with someone new to Doctor Who, we've been skipping the lost recon serial things, so I don't bore him with them.

I was wondering how good are the recons/surviving audio stuff and are there any particular standouts that would give me an idea of what they are like?


Moffat: ruin Weeping Angels by showing them move

Chibnall: ruin Weeping Angels by turning them into a gun



Either of those would be GOAT but I think it entirely depends on how they're animated. The Invasion's animation is quite good but the animation for The Tenth Planet/Power of the Daleks is really poor.



Like a gun that shoots Weeping Angels? Or a gun that only fires when nobody's observing it?



A gun that sends things to another time



Now you mention it…if displacing things in time creates energy that Angels feed on, that gun must be a fucking magnet for Angels.

Some of stories on the googledrive like Master Plan and Evil are animated very roughly. Not every story has that treatment, though

Marigold didn't start out that well at it.

I do think that if we get a Multi-Doctor episode we'll hear snippets of 'The Doctor's Theme', 'The Doctor Forever', 'I Am The Doctor' or 'A Good Man' depending on if it's 9, 10, 11 or 12.

Perhaps 'A Shepherd's Boy' since that leitmotif's come up in two Multi-Doctor episodes.

Whether they'd be covers done by Segun or just the originals is another question.

Agreed in general, but I do see that in the particular case of Australia and other southern nations and cultures, it would have a very different feel, as down there it's a spring holiday, not a fall holiday.


Episode idea #1 - The Doctor and her companions go back to 1756 and help Lydia Taft to become the first woman to vote. Their enemy is a chauvinist movement leader from the future who wants to sabotage women's rights, because he was rejected on prom night.

Episode idea #2 - The gang arrives in the year 7568 on a space colony, where the government of old white men punish homosexuality, because they want to raise the population to wage war against their enemies in 50 years. The Doctor saves the colony by turning the whole government homosexual, so they reconsider their politics.

Episode idea #3 - The Doctor and the gang go back to 2004 to help Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon get married as the first lesbian couple. During their adventure they manage to also turn them black, with the help of Bill who they bring back for a 5 minute cameo as the lesbian godess of the universe.

​Episode idea #4 - In 2001, the Doctor and her companions arrive on the planes that will fly into the WTC. They uncover a conspiracy, where the muslim attackers are actually robots that were made by aliens. This is so they can feed off the "conflict energy" from the ensuing war on the Middle East. They stop their plans by changing history and establishing world peace.

Of course we will need as many historical inaccuracies and on the nose social commentaries as we can cram in an episode. The episodes should be as blunt as possible with their attempts to teach the viewer the ways of social justice. This doesn't sound like Doctor Who at all? Well too bad.



No, she was responding to a "Miss…?"

The European Union commissioners have announced that an agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications (rather than German, which was the other possibility).

As part of the negotiations, the British government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c". Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like "fotograf" and "fosforous" up to 20 persent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments wil enkourage the removal of double leters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by "v".

I don't get it, is Brexit a good thing or a bad thing?



Had some benefits in theory but the negotiations are fucked

It might have been okay if the people that wanted it had any power. As it is, the government only did the vote because they wanted to shut up Nigel Farage and his group and didn’t actually think it would happen so now they’re forced to do it. Nigel is so happy it’s happening that he’s getting his children German passports



Tennant, Agyemen and Barrowman on The Last of the Time Lords is comfy.



It will almost certainly be a bad thing, principally thanks to the moral bankruptcy and incompetence of the people making it happen. But there's a certain cross-section of centrists who are completely blind to absolutely everything else in British politics that isn't BREXIT BAD, and also blame Brexit on Corbyn because he's too busy being an actual left-winger to join them.



Any with Moffat, RTD, Julie Gardner or Tennant. Silence in the Library has those three that aren’t RTD and Rose there are several with RTD and Julie

Roberts Master



Favorite doctor is 4, favorite story is Genesis, favorite monster is the Cybermen, and he's also definitely Ian Levine.

I can't speak for the follow-up box sets (apart from the Sutekh one which I didn't like much), but I quite enjoyed this first one. It's got a nice variety of fun romps and seriousness, it's got an experimental mind fuck story in it, and it's very concerned with character stuff. An interesting take on the "Time Lord Ace" thing as well.

Just got pic related, but the knee joints are really loose, so she falls over a lot. Anyone else got the same figure? If so, are the knee joints pretty loose on yours too?



Do the joints have any kind of physical screw that's able to be tightened?




If they aren't, get some floor polish. If you're in the US, get Pledge Floor Care Finish, or any other Pledge product with Future in it. I don't know if it's available in the rest of the world but I suspect it is. Get a bit of that in a dropper or on a brush, and get it into the joint. Make sure to work the joint a bit as it settles in.



Not that I can currently see. I just went and skimmed through some review videos (which I probably should've done before asking…) and it seems like it's a common complaint. There's a good range of motion, but it's hard to keep her standing in any sort of interesting pose because if the legs are slightly bent at all, they'll go all the way and she'll just tip over.


Thank you anon, I'll keep this in mind. Not sure how or where I want to display her just yet, but once I get that figured out, I'll look into a solution like that if it's needed.

It's a really good figure, despite this one issue. I wish they'd make a whole line of these for all the Doctors, even if it was just a limited release.



I would kill for a line of really good Doctor figures. The five inch stuff is just atrocious in paint, molding, and articulation.

Anyways, the floor polish trick just tightens up the joints all-round, it's very similar to the superglue trick only not nearly so risky, chemically speaking. Plus, a single bottle will last you forever, unless you start doing something crazy with it like washing and finishing your floors.



There are good figures out there, like the Big Chief Studios ones, but they're ridiculously expensive… and the likeness isn't actually as good as the price would suggest. This figure isn't quite as detailed as those ones, but it looks a lot like Jodie (albeit stylised) and has great articulation aside from the loose knees. The clothes are great, too. You can take the coat off entirely (or, all of the clothes, if you're so inclined.) and they've even got good attention to detail with her shirt underneath. And it's only like £20, instead of the £230 that the BCS figures are. I would be so happy if this figure is popular enough for them to consider a release of the other Doctors. I agree about the 5.5" figures, they're pretty awful, and too expensive for their size and quality.

I'll definitely look into getting some floor polish, though. This figure has, like I said, really good articulation, but it's hard to make the most of it when she falls over every three seconds.

>unless you start doing something crazy with it like washing and finishing your floors

Using a product for its intended purpose? I would never.

Slightly more likely, since they like to experiment with international licenses, would be a company like Bandai or Medicom doing some SH Figuarts or MAFEX figures. That would be so sweet.

Boring as sin, lots of sections of silence because the model shots lacked sound for realism and almost all episodes are missing. Acting's not on point for anyone, the story is a "collect all the bits to win" story and it's 6 episodes long.



What part of it is collect the bits? They only want to get back to the TARDIS which they were separated from


I'd like to "collect"… oh, never mind.


I'd like to make certain /who/re "strictly come" while "dancing", if you get what I mean.



I do, and I love it.




Relistened to episode 1, it was a really fun romp with clever bits

I reckon it is standalone to the rest of the boxset

but I really liked it







I’m whizzing with the door open, and I love it

>mfw the BBC forces Chibnall to not take a gap year and in order to fill a Series worth of stories he just does Trial of a Time Lord Round 2



Accidental kino alert.


The Doctor's Abortion by Chris Chibnall



I unironically would've loved a Trial of a Time Lord-esque series with Moffat and Capaldi now that Gallifrey is back. Maybe even as Series 10 instead of what we got (not saying Series 10 was bad, but it definitely could've been better) Moffat seemed to like the established lore of Gallifrey and adding his own ideas to it like the Moment, the barn, and pretty much anything set on Gallifrey in Name/Day of the Doctor, Listen, and Hell Bent. Plus it'd be the perfect time to bring back the Valeyard and even maybe even Romana. The Doctor's legal defense being made up of Missy and Nardole while the SimmMaster could be on the other side as the lead prosecutor or something. The Doctor could find out what SimmMaster and/or the Valeyard are up to and have the finale be a retooled version of WEAT/TDF with TUAT as the Christmas special relatively unchanged. Or maybe the Time Lords could cause 12's regeneration, dunno.

Maybe 10-12 episodes of one continuous story on Gallifrey would be a bit much, but they could still start the season with a few standalone eps that build towards it and have the rest of it be that storyline. Or do a Children of Earth and make it a miniseries. All I know is if Moffat went in that direction it'd have been absolute kino and a god-tier swan song for him and Capaldi

What is this image?



something for a poster I was half-doing


I can't wait till Sesska reveals that someone spoiled the Master reveal for her in tomorrows video like she did for the Missy reveal in Dark Water.

Which do you think is better/more respectful/on brand?


Imagine getting a new episode of Doctor Who every single week for years without the gaps between seasons. And Sesska will do classic who after as well




Is there any way to not work out who Missy is after her first scene?



My roommate would tell me every year that the Master was coming back so I ruled out the possibility from habit. But then I looked up the actress while watching Dark Water on iview and there were news articles about her being the Master that spoiled me



I wasn't sure because I was convinced Moffat wouldn't make it THAT obvious. Suffice to say I kicked myself at the reveal.



I guessed, but I realized it had to be true when we got to Listen. She's not in that episode, but the bit in the barn very prominently reveals the Doctor grew up in a children's home, which stands in direct contrast to his best friend's youth on his estates. Pretty much then I realized there was nobody else Missy could be.



Your caption will be all the more appropriate once S11 is added to that chart.


Why not! Omega needs protection from Vampires as much as the rest of Gallifrey.


This would've been really kino as a followup to Giga's old thoughts about expanding Hell Bent (which I just read the other day and which I can't stop thinking about). It really is a bit of a shame that the BBC pushed Moffat to make S10 a fresh start; considering that even then he brought back a RTD-era character in a more prominent role than he had in any of his other series, I'd love to see what he would've done if he'd been freed from the stress of a reboot.

Another fun thing about your post is that, if you remove some of the obviously overwriting-S10 elements from it, it wouldn't be an insane plotline for some future publisher (ie, Big Finish) to slot into place between series 9 and 10.


The real redpill is that the child in "Listen" was the Master.



Nope, doesn't work. It's not proper foreshadowing unless it's that cracked mirror. Otherwise it's just that Gallifrey fan film where the gimmick is we don't know which character becomes the Doctor and which becomes the Master.

I have an idea for a story with a very similar gimmick, that's about a Time Lord interacting with that dumb little high school clique all the relevant Time Lords were in, and I'm strongly considering having one of the female characters in the group turn out to be the Doctor, currently trying to experiment with regeneration and being obviously outclassed by all her classmates, only properly transforming back into young Hartnell at the end as the big reveal.



>It's not proper foreshadowing unless it's that cracked mirror

I can live with this. "Listen is foreshadowing for Missy" is genuinely not something that has ever crossed my mind before today and I was doing just fine.



There's actually a great deal of Missy/Cybermen/Toxic Friendship foreshadowing through the whole of series 8. Remember what defeated the robots in Sherwood?



This would only make any sense at all if at series 8 mentioned at any point that the Master grew up on estates. Good job for guessing the correct conclusion that Missy was the Master, but I don't think your logic holds any weight.



Witnessed some Moffat hate on twitter earlier. They really are pathological, aren't they?



ummm no, moffat sucks sweetie


I'd like to "delete" certain /who/re's "wiki" if you catch my drift.


4 years? Wow. We were stuck with Capaldi for way too long.

4. In a manner of speaking, this episode takes place before most of “The Ghost Monument.”

5. The Doctor used to have *is****.

6. Amelia Earhart! Ed Sheeran! Edith Wharton! Ryan’s dad!

7. “I have no more Kevins.”

8. Psychic paper!

9. Apparently, the Doctor and a companion are . . . dating?

10. Yaz’s mum (Najia) is a joke.

11. “Do you have any idea how annoying it is when my husband’s right?”

Based, but how would they work?



1: Duh.

2: Oh shit, new Vortex?

3: I think BBC America already spoiled us with the clip.

4: This would seem to imply they arrive on earth right before or right around the time they left in The Woman Who Fell To Earth?

5: Sisters?

6: He's a woman?

7: Sounds like something Chris Noth might say.

8: Yaaaaaaay!

9: Guessing this is going to work exactly like it did in the Lazarus Experiment.

10: I don't think that surprises anyone.

11: Grody bantz.



The Vortex is the only properly iconic thing we haven't seen outside of the various monsters.

I don't think that was in need of further explanation.

You don't understand anything, Judy

Can I fuck with your "probabilities", if you know what I mean?



I pretend to be retarded



Nothing's out of date or wrong, I just thought that it would only post two or three types of posts. Saying that, however, I can't suggest anything to give it some more variance.


I'm judy, I'm retarded, oops



Yeah, I get that. Right now there are either 9 or 12 types of posts, depending how you count, but the probabilities are currently pushed way too hard in the "fact about upcoming episode" direction, so I'll try fixing that. I'll also probably add more intro options and lower the pace to 4 times a day again.

Is this really an episode of Vagina Who? I've watched the first couple and they were pretty bad. "Hi look how diverse we are! Miscegenation and Muzzies and Lezzies oh my!" I mean seriously…. did they really do this episode or is this fan masturbation fantasy? I'm guessing that if they did do it, they did it strictly communist history book version and not at all mention how the incident was staged with a deliberately chosen half-white negress because she was considered more attractive and relate-able for whites. (yes, there was a previous attempt to do this with a dark as africa negress, and no one cared)
