Yes. Theres elements of struggle for theatricality's sake, but you can tell the female is doing many of the leading moves about a minute in. The push away move is usually done by a female dancer, spins are usually done by female dancers and you can sort of see where she starts leading him in the dance from a technical perspective. In that regard its pretty impressive.

Avellone says 1 is better than 2 and I agree with him, it's much more cohesive and the worldbuilding is much more focused. 2 is a lot of fun but much more theme park (like the Bethesda games in that way I guess).

3's story is an absolute joke and given how Bethesda make their games I think the more varied setting (let alone colour palette…) and gameplay of 4 worked better than 3. Part of it was I'd also just gotten over how Bethesda had changed Fallout by then though.

This is something that came into my head. I was thinking about a card I have which gets me free bus rides which may be damaged and was thinking if the driver would understand. Whenever I thought of a driver not understanding I instantly thought of a black driver. I feel bad about this. I thought about my attidues in the past and some of were pretty bad. I don't want these thoughts but they are there. It adds to my insecurities about my place in the world. Do you think I can still watch Doctor Who for example? (there are other things bothering me in relation to this but I would like it answered)? I feel so low with not just this but everything else I'm dealing with similar to this and other things. I don't know if I should carry on with life. I don't know what to do. Thanks.

I am hoping that Chibnall will redeem himself with The Tsuranga Conundrum but other than that you sort of have to hope the other writers will pick up the slack.

>Token discourse is so bullshit though.

I have no problem with diverse writers but it seems obvious what's happening here. Malorie Blackman doing an episode about black grievances, Vinay Patel doing an episode about indian grievances, in all likelihood Witch Finders will lean into the woman angle. It's hard not to resent it when it seem like they are writing for themselves rather than writing for fans. If Vinay Patel and Joy Wilkinson end up writing some solid Doctor Who that doesn't feel self-indulgent then i'll happily concede the point.

the writer could use the high amount of radiation there to actually be the reason why an alien is secretly hiding there (since it gives off lots of radiation as well and would thus be undetected).

Slowly.

A program with similar capabilities to Skype is used.

I always make the intros but the voice of who announces the title of the epzode is who hosted+edited that epzode.

There were two anons on the last cast, and all the weeks planned out currently have anons in them as well.

I have planned an epzode for the week inbetween the finale and the Christmas special, that's gonna be quite a good one. Beyond that, while I understand and appreciate the enthusiasm some have in thinking of offseason content, there are a myriad of reasons why I don't think that would work. However, it may end up happening in limited fashion - we will see. We're still only 3 epzodes into what will definitely be 12 epzodes of content, covering the series, a very special epzode, and the Christmas special.

They are hosted on their own YouTube channel and that is doing nicely, but a wiki article at all is a good idea, I just made this in response to that https://fuckofferino.wiki/wiki//who/_Cares%3F

I'm just one man, but I personally have no issue with the podcast being shared beyond /who/, in fact one of my greatest joys with it so far is a random YouTuber that stumbled along the podcast and has responded enthusiastically in the comments sections.

I wouldn't mind seeing an eventual expansion to other series/seasons or even "Special" or infamous episodes that get talked about often. Any plans on adding a visual element? like clips? or I personally wouldn't mind seeing "Anons" masked or filtered video conversation. i know that will never happen, but it makes the friendship simulator aspect a bit easier to immerse in.

Glad you enjoyed!

I've thought about adding clips or similar sorts of visual elements but desu I'm finding it best to keep the workload as low as possible on these since ostensibly it's for fun and editing the audio alone can take a while.

LOL, while lord knows I don't mind putting myself out there in general, most of the folks who come on definitely would mind.

Hoodie has already "advertised" the podcast outside of /who/ on his Twitter, I certainly wouldn't mind anyone else doing that but it'd be worth getting the thoughts of someone else who's been on too, Ingiga since he's the other one doing the most of the work at least. Everyone on them has agreed to being on them, which are public YouTube videos though, so it is what it is really.

It's not a meme, it's a legitimate threatening and invasive overstep on Big Finish's part. Obverse: https://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/beep-the-meep

Even setting aside the fact the BF post in question makes a complete mockery out of the customer base, it concludes with "Pre-order now. Or I'll have to turn nasty…. ", an outright threat towards the customer and arguable case of extortion/coercion. It's not a pleasant state to be in when a company you've supported for years, through thick and thin, decides to start mocking you ("advertising" an overpriced 5CD audio drama set following a comicbook cat by spamming the same word over and over and over as if Doctor Who fans are happy to eat up that slop and lack any critical faculties for discerning the presence of even a logline for a story) then outright threatening you (the line you're referencing).

Pros

>Comfy series 1 vibes, could've been an Eccleston story especially with the ending with the mother spider dying

>Yaz gets some much needed characterization

>Humour actually lands for once, laughed multiple times

>Ryan gets another funny schlocky scene with the grime music

>Robertson not a total caricature, actually a fun character

>Jodie feels like the Doctor finally, really came into her own here, less angry than previous Doctors

>CGI on the spiders was pretty impressive

>Emotional moments didn't feel forced or overstay their welcome

>Some nice visuals, the promotional material really hid that the episode takes place mostly in a hotel

>Yaz/Thirteen teased

Cons

<Tanya Fear's acting was atrocious and she served little purpose except for exposition, should've been cut

<Too much effort put into explaining why the spiders were acting weird. Could've just said "lab experiment" and we would've understood

<"Guns are bad" even on mindless spiders…?

Actually started off well. There were multiple storylines going on, interesting environments and camera work, a somewhat scary monster.

Then it all goes to shit at the exact time that the Doctor arrives at the hotel. The show literally became 'four independent strong woman who don't need no man shout at the white cis male pig and also guns are bad even though we blatantly show them to be a merciful than what the Doctor suggests' The storyline became incredibly predictable, just the

>big bad companies dump trash into landfill

>insects grow huge due to radioactivity

story we've seen time and time again.

Then Ryan plays some shit grime music so that the UK black youth have their little representation(it was almost as bad as the CoD shit in episode 2) and I honestly don't even remember what happened after that because suddenly we're back in Yaz's flat and everything's fine again.

True. It's a really good episode, I think they'd enjoy that one. Nothing too confusing for new viewers, and a solid story. Thank you!

Listen is kino, but it might not be ideal for someone totally new to the show, and the character stuff is great but best appreciated with full knowledge of who the Doctor is.

>>129959

Robot's a good suggestion, but I don't know if this particular person would get the best impression of the show via it as their first episode. As for Lake/Flood… I haven't seen that in a long while, so I'll probably avoid suggesting that. Heaven Sent feels like it'd be a little bit too nonsensical to a new viewer. Or, at least, the general storyline of it makes sense but the context/ending of it would just be confusing.

Getting really tired of the utter absurdity of the Doctor's gun phobia. How they handled it made sense in the classic series. Things should be solved peacefully, if they can be, but once the gloves are off, a gun is as good a weapon as any. Modern Doctor seems pretty happy to kill, but is snooty about a particular method of killing, because it isn't intellectual enough.

Chibnall could've used the spider dilemma to give a deeper insight into the Doctor's morality by having her acknowledge that, whilst the direct act of killing is generally a very bad thing, sometimes it's far crueller to not act at all. No matter what happened, those spiders were going to die. There were two options: long, slow, painful suffocation/starvation in a tiny cramped room, or a quick and (if done properly) painless death.

Even though the Doctor had previously stated her dislike for guns, it would've been more interesting to see her have to struggle with the moral dilemma, rather than refuse to compromise, maintaining a clearly specious opinion. Previous Doctors have acknowledged that sometimes the direct act of killing is a necessary evil, because for all that violence is something to abhor, it can sometimes also be the method by which suffering is eased. The Doctor's moral stance is basically just "above all, kindness" and sometimes that kindness can take unique forms, in unique circumstances. The character's stance has never, and should never be "no violence, no exceptions" because that's such a narrow view of the world, incompatible with situations exactly like the spiders, where she *should've* chosen direct mercy, rather than passive cruelty… but Chibnall's definition of compassion seems to be very limited, very superficial, and ultimately just leads to the Doctor appearing all the more cruel for it.

This episode could've been a layered and interesting insight into morality and mercy, and it could've elevated the story from a generic, shallow "monster romp" to something actually worth thinking about… but nope. Guns bad. Spiders die. On to next week, lads.

I should clarify that I fucking hate guns, and I agree wholeheartedly with the Doctor's stance in a real world sense, but this wasn't a real world situation. Besides, guns didn't have to be used. They had the spiders all locked up, they could've found an alternative way of dealing with them humanely, but as far as the audience is aware, they were just locked up and left to slowly die… which makes it all the more baffling that they gave us a scene in which we were supposed to feel bad about the mother spider suffocating and dying. All they were doing was showing us exactly what was going to happen to all her children.

After letting us see that, are we supposed to feel happy about how the rest of the spiders were dealt with? Better yet, they used that scene to juxtapose the Doctor and the American guy's contrasting views, with the suggestion that the former was right and the latter was wrong. Perhaps in that very specific situation, yeah… but not when you consider the surrounding context. I don't know. Maybe I'm thinking about this all too much, especially when that early review warned us not to. It really just becomes frustrating when you dig into it, like all of Chibnall's episodes so far.

- Good CGI

- Some development for Yaz

- Doctor Who got some nice scenes

- I like how the new vortex works, otherworldly and spacey

- Spiders motif is nice, i liked music in this one

- Chris Noth was good

- Too many characters. They run around as seven people, it feels too safe

- 13 being this opposed to guns always feels very clunky this series, today is no exception. It made much more sense and was played better in early RTD

- Frankie character

- The resolution, how they just left the spiders in that room to die or something

Even Rosa ep, which could feel more, you know, apocalyptic, is played quietly, providing almost no evidence that Krasko is a big deal that really knows what he's doing. For what the viewers knows, both Krasko and Doctor Who might be wrong about understanding time the way they do.

I don't understand how Chibnall can be so bad at writing dialogue. I don't remember his past episodes being like this. The Power of Three is only as good as it is because of the character interactions in it, yet he's 4 episodes into the new series and has yet to write a single scene that's not awkward and stilted. Is Broadchurch like this too? I thought that show got rave reviews? but then again, so has Series 11.

 No.130105

at least when Moffat episodes were bad I was still engaged with what was happening and the episode made me feel something, even if that feeling was negative. This is the 4th episode in a row where I'm so fucking apathetic to everything going on. I can't even hate it, I just don't care at all about any of it. The only two scenes to come close to invoking any emotion in me were the Call of Duty scene and the scene in todays episode with Ryan playing Stormzy, and that was only because the first scene was so absurd I had to laugh at it and the music in the 2nd one caught me off guard.


 No.130106

Is Yaz lesbian/bi? Why does her own mother immediately assume that she's in a relationship with the Doctor? Is it just because Chibnall was trying to replicate RTD's signature "Doctor argues with companion's mother" scene and he didn't bother to edit out the bit where the mother assumes they're fucking?

Rewatching some Capaldi episodes, and… huh. This scene illustrated the sort of thing that I said Chibnall should have explored.

the doctor could still have the moral grandstanding about guns if chibnall just focused her anger on robertson's flippant attitude towards using them. then again, what message is that sending - guns are ok, sometimes, if the intent is good? maybe that's a bit centrist. i dunno. imagine thinking this much about such a nothingy episode.

I love that she uses the exact same phrasing as in episode 1 when she says "I'm sorry that this is happening to you." If she keeps using it it'll become insincere, when we were praising it originally because it was more thoughtful than Tennant's many "I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry's". The only grasp we seem to have on 13 is that she's much more considerate about people's feelings, and it's the only way we can conceive potential flaws appearing in her nature.


 No.130159

>>130158

10's delivery of the line was duller than 13's, and its frequent use throughout 10's run made it seem less honest every consecutive time. 13 has said "I'm so sorry" in three of her four episodes so far, so make of that inference what you will.

I think 13's really lovely, I enjoy her and I enjoy Jodie's portrayal, but she is a very generic Doctor. Nothing about her is unique, or makes her markedly different from the others (aside from the obvious, which… of course, isn't a personality trait) and you'd think that would've arisen by now, four episodes in. She does and says things that have a lot of *potential* to make her distinct, but Chibnall never capitalises on it. It comes across as more of an unforeseen quirk rather than something deliberately planned, like her weird focus on the "no guns" thing despite a situation plausibly justifying their use, or the way she seemed to get some sort of thrill out of her encounter with Krasko where he tried to kill her but couldn't. All of these things don't necessarily make her distinct, but there's the potential for them to. Like, you could make something out of the fact that the morals she seems determined to stick by often conflict with what might be the "right" thing to do, or with the Krasko situation, it could be (as has been mentioned a few times before) that she's a bit of an adrenaline junkie, taking risks to get a high that's harder and harder to come by now that she's so old and has seen so much. Right now, she doesn't really have any discernible flaws, which I think is what makes her so generic. She has all of the recognisable traits of the Doctor, she has all the good stuff… but pretty much every incarnation has at least one "flaw" (or, deviation from the expected norm) that helps to define them. The core of the Doctor is always good, but the way that that personality is presented to the universe may be imperfect, and it's the imperfections—contrasted against the purity of the core—that define each incarnation.

You beat me to it, but yeah. I think it's probably wrong of me to use the word "flaws" because things like 9's PTSD and stuff, describing them like that is insensitive at best, but I'm not sure how else to put it. Aspects of them that shatter perceived perfection? No idea. Like most characters, if you just took the basis of them and stripped away all the aspects that inspire conflict (internal or external), they would stagnate pretty quickly. You need something in there to deviate from the norm, or you'll just get more of the same. The Doctor is recognisable in all their forms not just because of the shared history, but also because of the shared traits and beliefs. What makes each incarnation distinct is anything that differs from the expected, and that can often (but not always) manifest in flaws. At least, the things that invite the most conflict and therefore, the most story potential, tend to be things you might perceive as damaging that perfect ideal of the hero figure. So, for 9, his PTSD isn't a personality flaw so much as something he's dealing with that degrades the perception of the Doctor as infallible, whereas with 10, 11 and 12, those are issues with their personality directly. You could probably expand on the list a little for each (which I see some anons have already done), but those are the core problems they deal with, and things that they have to overcome throughout their tenure, because they're things that naturally invite conflict either within themselves, with their companions, or with the people they encounter. 10 is a bit of an outlier, in that I'm not entirely sure he ever did overcome his vanity, it kind of followed him through to the end, didn't it? But I've not watched his stuff in a while, so maybe someone else could comment on that.

The problem with 13, I think, is that she doesn't have any recognisable personality flaws, and anything you could twist to say *is* one (though there isn't much)… it's either portrayed as something quirky and fun, or seems to be entirely unintentional. This would be generally okay, if there was some external conflict that existed to affect her on a personal level, but so far there isn't. There have been plenty of situations that offered the chance (see: the whole moral dilemma with the spiders), but it's never capitalised on. Four episodes in and we don't really *know* the Doctor in her current form? Hm. It's not bad, it just might become a little boring. At least there's a chance to understand her better as an individual with the whole Timeless Child thing being brought up, whatever that may be, but I'm worried that Chibnall's going to fumble with that one too, and not really deliver on whatever potential there is.
