the Series 3 trailers were fucking weird. There's this one as well as the mid-series one that has this bizarre edit that goes from 10 saying "don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't –" to the brother from Family of the Dead/Human Nature screaming "RUNNN!" but why would the Doctor ever say "don't run" it doesn't make sense to have that edit

How did they miss that one light in a couple of shots? Are the lights completely digital, or were there LEDs on set and one of them broke between takes? The way the light shines off her nose suggests there was some kind of real light present. Why didn't they edit in the extra light during post? It's distracting cutting between two different shots of her face, with one having all 4 lights on and the other having one of the lights off

Wait doctor who took two weeks off in the middle of S3, and showed a trailer for the second half of the series at the end of an episode? In australia they were still airing it delayed enough that the series had already ended in the UK, and we just got a normal "next episode" trailer

desu I thought all the Capaldi-era trailers were kinda shit. The Series 5 and 6 trailers are trailerkino, so I don't know what happened after that. Series 9's trailer being letterboxed in 2.39:1 for no reason still annoys me whenever I see it.

I certainly hope you aren't referring to the S5 "flying through the vortex with random bubbles that show villains and then a giant silurian head bursts out of the ground" trailer



The most kino next time trailers are the ones that just say "to be continued" and don't show anything from the next episode

always loved this one, for some reason they didn't include it at the end of The Almost People (I guess to maintain the suspense with that cliffhanger?) but they uploaded it online afterwards anyway

no that trailer is fucking awful, this one aired at the end of The End of Time Part 2. I remember because that was the first episode I watched live when BBCAmerica showed it along with Part 1 back-to-back (yeah great place to start) and this trailer was so hype inducing that I immediately got a copy of Series 1 and watched nuWho all the way through before Series 5 started

Anything from Series 4.



>contrarians saying Blink because it's popular

correct answer is Vincent and the Doctor. Not because it's overrated, just because Blink is 11 years old and most casual fans only watched Smith's run.



Moffat is good at individual episodes but his story arcs are terrible. Just look at his episodes in the RTD era

Vince Gilligan mentions An Adventure in Space and Time in a Better Call Saul commentary, referred to as "that Doctor Who movie".

It's so fucking surreal hearing the words "Doctor Who" out of Vince's mouth.



What does he say about it?



Nothing really. Just brings it up because its director directed the episode of Better Call Saul in question. But the fact that he specifically brought it up suggests he might've watched it, which is a crazy thought.


Hell Bent is just frustrating for me. We go to bloody Gallifrey for a whole episode, a great opportunity to explore The Doctor’s past and be introduced to new Gallifrey characters, but once again it’s turned into the Clara show.



>his story arcs are terrible

>what is Series 5

>what is Series 6a

>what is Series 9

I wouldn't even call his story arcs in Series 6B/7/8/10 bad either. 8/10 don't really have much of a story arc, sure there's Missy in Series 8 but she's just kinda doing her own thing unrelated to the main plot until Dark Water, and I wouldn't call the Vault a story arc either since it's just kinda a background mystery that's done by episode 5 or whatever. 6B/7 he kinda fucked himself with the resolution to the Doctor's death/Silence arc in Wedding of River Song, and I've never had much of a problem with the Impossible Girl arc. Moffat fucked himself by keeping the Ponds around for 5 more episodes since it meant he only had 7 episodes to explore Clara's character which wasn't enough at all.

Moffat accidentally stumbling upon a perfect resolution to all of the story arcs and loose threads when he did the 50th and wrapping them all up in a satisfying way in Time of the Doctor was such a clutch fucking recovery on his end


>The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances

>Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone

>The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang

>The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

>Heaven Sent/Hell Bent

>World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls

how did Moffat master the art of the kino two-parter? No other writer was able to pull it off to the extent he did. That's not to say there weren't any other good two-parters over the last 10 series, but the episodes I listed are all perfect 10's in my eyes



>>Heaven Sent/Hell Bent

someones about to get verged



Series 7 had no Moffat 2-parters. Series 7 is also considered a bad season.



didn't he get started as a writer/producer for The X-Files? I'm sure he's watched Doctor Who, at least Classic Who growing up.

Vince Gilligan is based though. If there was anyone I'd trust to be showrunner for a US remake of Doctor Who it'd be him no question. Fuck, have him replace Chibnall. Come to think of it, have there been any American writers on Doctor Who? I know Rachel Talalay is American but she just directs

Either him or Bryan Fuller.

I'd rather have no Doctor Who than this.

He has a rule about two-parters concerning the way they fit together that nobody else does and it makes them feel totally different to anyone else's.



Moff DID chose chibnall personally, he knew that chibbers being at this quality would retroactively make his era one of the most appreciated of all time.

well that was utterly mediocre but probably in the upper echelon with Rosa imo



>sponsored by GI



it would have been a mediocre filler episode for Smith or Tennet. So by S11 standards, it's literally the best fucking episode of the damn season so far.


Anyone else found Tsuranga's set design utterly unimpressive? Which other DW eps have bad set design?



Do these people not realize that the 2nd half of Rosa was literally about the Doctor and pals systematically doing everything in their power to make sure an innocent women would be fucking arrested? That wasn't powerful, it was cringey as hell.

>mfw remembering the awkward way the doctor dumped the information that she traveled in time on the other passengers

>mfw an episode with a script this fucking incompetent is still better than the last four




I got things to say about this episode.

You're going to have to wait to hear them, though.



The halls and control room were okay for the concept of self piloting space ship that clearly the people on board weren't suppose to be messing with or even be walking around in much. The unretracted landing gear legs on the outside annoyed the fuck out of me though. And the antimatter core was far too simple looking for a prop that the script spent that much time taking about and focusing that close up on.



Do you think it would be better as a double helix, maybe with some snake heads at the top?



What's the lore significance of anti-matter? Outside of, I guess, the Three Doctors, I'm having trouble making the connection.



witnessing it happen and taking up fucking seats especially so it would happen are two vary different things. It just makes the doctor look like a huge cunt without the context. It would be like if they actually showed Ten rushing into an inn in Bethlehem with a shit eating grin on his face to rent that last room instead of just making a offhand joke about it.



I guess it was just basic fascination with how cool humans have become.



I think it's was just a general "the doctor luvs the science!" bit to show that sometimes they actually try to explain stuff like a hard sci fi show or something



maybe a little too jj abrams, but as far as arwel "ah well" wyn jones goes, it could certainly have been worse

if the director had chosen to photograph the set with an eye to emphasizing how sterile and orderly the environment was, the pting would seem more dangerous because it would be such an aberration, but apparently filming anything other than closeups gets in the way of the "real characters" and their "real dialogue"

the antimatter drive design was actually pretty great, but whatever the fuck that speech was pretty much cancelled out anything good about it

except chibs tells us basically none of this and instead went on about the fucking particle accelerator giving virtually no background on the actual scientific principles CERN is researching, so it might as well have been star trek technobabble as far as anyone watching who might potentially be interested in this stuff is concerned

>In his appearance on the BBC's Open Air, a young and discerning Chris said: "It could have been slightly better written, especially the last story. It was very clichéd, it was very routine – running up and down corridors and silly monsters."

>So, has Chris taken his own criticism on board in light of his new gig as series 11 showrunner? Of course not. (Would you take advice from your teenage self?)

<"Imagine if something you did for 20 minutes when you were 16 has resonance when you are 30 years older. It's kind of extraordinary," he explained to The Telegraph.

<"Loads of running up and down corridors and loads of monsters," he quipped.

What article was this from? Been trying to find the quote for a while


Chibnall is fascinated with "imagination" and "conceptualising" because he's incapable of it himself



The whole plot with Eve Cicero felt so… shoddy. I mean, conceptually it's just a fine somewhat generic idea about sibling relationship, but in the episode it's just talking in rooms with very little sense of stakes.

Pregnant man storyline was genuinely funny to me though. Maybe because of labour memes.

People prevail… Hope prevails!



reminder that one of the reasons this man gave for why he's writer is that he "likes to find out what happens next".



hasn't the president lost the house in the first term basically forever?


"Rosa" isn't a Series 11 episode because it isn't about family other than references to Grace. Other episodes that potentially aren't Series 11 episodes include Kerblam! The Witchfinders, and Episode 9. But we'll see.



Why do americans have an election season just for a fraction of the seats, rather than doing it all at once?



The pregnant man was certainly memorable, which isn't something you can really say about anything else that's chibby's come up with

so it was probably the guy who came up with the pting's idea



same thing happens in Australia. the main reason is that it's not really supposed to matter, the intent of a senate is typically for reviewing bills and making sure they pass legal scrutiny rather than being a political chamber to block bills.


File: 90880aefac7b840⋯.png (352.86 KB, 396x382, 198:191, 1519726509532.png)



Aren't all federal house and senate seats voted on at an election in australia? Isn't that the whole point of how the election works?



only if it's a double dissolution, i'll be honest i dont really understand it entirely myself

>Senators normally serve fixed six-year terms (from 1 July to 30 June). At most federal elections, the seats of 40 of the 76 Senators (half of the 72 Senators from the six states and all four of the Senators from the territories) are contested, along with the entire House of Representatives; such an election is sometimes known as a half-Senate election. The seats of Senators elected at a half-Senate election are not contested at the next election, provided it is a half-Senate election. However, under some circumstances, the entire Senate is dissolved early, in what is known as a double dissolution.

we're around the time rory "died" in series 5, imagine if one of the companions fucking died next episode, when we know literally nothing about them. how unfulfilling.



we know ryan, he's the only actual companion

graham and yas only exist in their relevance to ryan, that's why graham and yas never interact with each other directly


everything involving her being a cop had been rather pathetic. The bit with her correcting her dad for calling her a police woman, the scene where they tried to have black dude go all BML! fuck da popo! while also having her go on about all the disrespect she gets as a cop (but of course it's the evil white people doing it, and certainly not people like the black dude who just said how much he thinks cops suck) or having some American security guard threaten her with a gun without even a mention of "Um, excuse me, I'm a law enforcement officer, how the fuck do you even legally have a handgun in this country?"



Rory died in episode 9 of 13, we're not quite there yet.


sometimes I find myself just remembering that Class exists and then feeling a bit lost



>without even a mention of "Um, excuse me, I'm a law enforcement officer, how the fuck do you even legally have a handgun in this country?"

this is what annoyed me the most about the episode, like you're a fucking cop, you swore an oath to uphold the law. fucking do something



>all the disrespect she gets as a cop (but of course it's the evil white people doing it, and certainly not people like the black dude who just said how much he thinks cops suck)

Did you really just equate Ryan complaining about getting unfairly treated by the police because he's black, to Yaz getting called a terrorist and a paki on the street.



oh right, for some reason i felt like it was mid way through, maybe the lack of 2 parters is confusing me




Very true. If Yaz attempted to arrest him it'd be very interesting



>The bit with her correcting her dad for calling her a police woman

This was a subtle and competent way of showcasing how microaggressions happen by people who mean well, the fact it was about yas being a police officer wasn't important



For reference, the equivalent point in a series of 10 episodes would be about the end of episode 7.


At least class had gay shit



also if yaz was carrying a gun (i know bong cops dont but w/e) it could have made for a REALLY interesting scene between the doctor and yaz if yaz was lawfully using a weapon to arrest someone breaking the law.



we had gay pregnant alien this ep!!

I kind of like the premise of making the Doctor a scary vampire man. The Doctor should have an unsettling quality. A sense of "he's being nice now, but can we really trust him?".



She has moments where she is endearing. Her worst bits are always the fault of the script


I really liked Mandip's face expression from the trailer for ep 6. She looks somewhat irritated, as if there's a conflict between her nan and the rest of the team and she took her nan's side.

Hmm, yeah, occasionally.

Ep 6 info from Radiotimes!!!

[spoiler]“An episode by Vinay Patel combines Back to the Future with Who Do You Think You Are as the Doctor takes Yaz to see her Gran.

Granny is on the verge of marrying, in the Punjab of 1947, on the day that Lord Mountbatten declares Partition - the catalyst for tumult, the displacement of millions and violent struggles that would last years.

It's a deeply sombre and tragic story that takes on big issues - the notion of homeland and loss - as the Doctor and friends become burdened with a dreadful foreknowledge. There are monsters - demons - who might not be what they seem.”[/spoiler]



The muslims are the ones who wanted an islamic state



They do that, yeah.

Joe from Broadchurch voicing Kerblam announcer or something, god yeah



It sounds like there might actually be some time-travelly stuff, with the back to the future comment, and the wrist-watch from the trailer. Interesting that Rosa was also similar in that it was two time travellers trying to outwit and out-plan each other. Is this the first historical set outside of Europe / USA in new who? I know there have been scenes or montages or whatever, but I can't think of a new who episode that isn't about white people history (unironically)

If any episode is a pure historical I want it to be the witches episode. Seems like it would be a good way to explore how fucking horrific and unnecessary the witch trials were. I'd love a scene of James I reading out a list of his 'tests' like: "If she drown's she's not a witch, if she doesn't, then she's a witch, so kill her"…. King James was the original "if she breathes she a thot" man. Alan Cumming would be fucking spectacular at that.



>Kerblam (Voice)

this is gonna be kino, literally sounds like a ratchet level



She initially just said "Say something nice" as if offering a chance for Dr Chang to avoid his death. It was only after that point, when he was already panicking and probably didn't notice, that she added she'd kill him as soon as he said it.


I'm legit excited for next two god I missed this feel



They're not thinking it through, which makes it really funny to me. It's like Missy's saying "deadpersonsayswhat" and the person says "what?" before realising what they said.



>It's a deeply sombre and tragic story that takes on big issues - the notion of homeland and loss - as the Doctor and friends become burdened with a dreadful foreknowledge. There are monsters - demons - who might not be what they seem

Come onnnnn this HAS to be kino, it sounds like it's on another fucking level from episodes 1-5.



You could say that about being born.

Would really love some more international historicals. Just fucking, samurai, ancient egypt, aztecs, aboriginal australia…. Now that the new series is willing to an episode set in pakistan, maybe it will be willing to do more episodes with non-white people in it. properly this time, not just some random black guy in the background. (pic related)



surely it's gotta be japanese next, doctor who can't get away without doing a bushido episode for this long.

>tfw the leak with kris marshall and a british asian history buff companion wasn't real



Yes, you should watch it and judge for yourself


Is series 11 an out of season April Fools joke?



UK audience doesnt care about Japan but god that's be kino



>UK audience doesnt care about Japan

I think theres something genuinely interesting about this, basically every other anglosphere country is fairly interested in japan to an extent, is it a European thing to not care about japan? it's not like Britain and Japan don't have an extensive history.



idk but it's weirdly true. I mentioned the prospect of a samurai episode elsewhere once, and people were telling me samurai were overdone…. I didn't see much of them on tv growing up, apart from teenage mutant ninja turtles or something. So I really didn't have the feeling samurai were overdone at all. So in my experience samurai are a concept that never gets explored almost at all, and I am mostly exposed to UK media..



what the fuck, I'm actually excited for an episode this series?



I never really cared for ancient Japan as a setting. Too much "muh honour", and the aesthetics are silly.

Jodie’s a virgin, r-right?



Er. Do we have an episode confirmation for that thing?




The Witchfinders. (based on Yasmin's clothes) The guy who leaked them only leaked them because they got cut from the episode. But this doesn't give me hope, because it means the witchfinders probably still has weird aliens and shit, instead of just hysteria and murder




You've reminded me of Jodie's blunt answer to that interview question that was like "How often do you have sex?":

>"Whenever I want."


I was interested in the premise of kerblam, but knowing that the corporation has a voice makes me excited, sounds like campkino



I really like this design desu



>the official twitter account doesn't even fucking understand the episode

What is there to be sad about? The Doctor literally appeased the Pting and sent it on its way.

imagine if matt had said that during series 5 interviews, not saying it's jodies fault. it's a terrible question from the interviewer but it really paints a picture of how the landscape has changed.



On the other hand, i could easily imagine John Barrowman saying that.

I am hyping myself up for a megacorp style late stage capitalist "complete disregard for human life" corporation with a sense of ironic humor, even though I know that's just setting myself up for disappointment



exactly the same, no regrets though. it's fun to be excited for doctor who


it's gonna be an odd look if the next slew of episodes actually are good, having the highest praised episodes specifically not written by the showrunner. even normies who like the show now anyways will still rank them higher than chibs episodes if they're good.



That’s how it was in the RTD era, although RTD is a much better writer than Chibnall and is often the one writing the final drafts of the popular episodes he’s not credited for (ignoring Moffat of course)


I was talking with my friend about the new Doctor Who timeslot. He looked shocked and said "Christ, that's not a very nice thing to call her!" and then I realized he thought I was saying timeslut



I dont know, aside from series 2 i think RTDs own episodes were up there with some of the best from the others.

It's basically pure mania from a modern horror thriller dropped into family tea time television.



I don't reckon there'll be a Blue Wave or a Red Wave but I do think that people won't really have been affected by recent events to change position. I'm pretty sure that Dems will take some places but I'm fairly certain that states won't flip. Dems might win house but Reps will keep Senate. I'll be watching a couple of livestreams in tandem later to see what's happening.

If any state is gonna flip it'll be North/South Dakota. People were saying Florida but I'm moderately certain that it'll stay the same across the board bar one or two places.



Also I reckon Cruz will beat O'Rourke.

Oh I think you know exactly what I mean



maybe it was november, i just remember it being around this time last year



I just looked up when the first pictures of jodie in capaldi's outfit came out and I'm pretty sure it was mid-to-late november




Why would I be? I found this unlikely because of the reasons I stated. Now it's confirmed, in that long line of costume designers confirming Who secrets (remember when the War Doctor's identity was spoiled that way?), which speaks volumes.

And before you rush to repeat yourself skelly, yes I remember our last conversation on the matter and no, neither of our opinions have changed.



I'm just funposting silly, not actually trying to make a point



t. Nilso


Will we get books in gap year?



Maybe we'll get a spinoff!




Robertson joins Torchwood



that was a classic neo funpost, silly!


I know Skelly's point that in a vacuum it's only a few months later, but I really don't think that's such a minimal thing. Maybe the ratings will be sustained more or less without harm, but it's still a year without Doctor Who on the telly, which is such terrible optics. Chibnall's SECOND YEAR will be a gap year. He has proven himself unable to run Doctor Who for two years straight, for…one year straight. Think back to 2006 and 2011 and everything RTD and Moffat accomplished in those years; the swell of popularity with Tennant, the show breaking America with Smith. What will Chibnall accomplish with his second year? LITERALLY NOTHING.




This is just reporting the Ray Holman tweet we all already saw…why does this have a ton of (You)s?





Between Chibnall's scripts (not even the volume of them, just the quality) and production, he is beyond an embarrassment lined up next to RTD and Moffat. 2018 is the year to criticise this.



I don't believe the general public pays as much attention to "no doctor who this year", you're speaking more from the perspective of a fan who actively follows these things. Have you ever heard anyone who said they lost interest in doctor who because it took a year off in 2016?



Why you hate women?



Not until all 10 episodes have aired!



I was told there was big news in the thread and assumed from the headline and replies that the BBC had confirmed filming is delayed until 2019, but there's no such confirmation. Holman just says his projects clash in 2019.



You're replying to an argument I haven't made. Yes, I am speaking from the perspective of a fan. From the perspective of a fan, of anyone following Doctor Who closely, a gap year is terrible optics.

I have heard from people mentioning the split series and gap year as lowering their interest, yes.


Friendly reminder for the entirety of 2019 /who/ will presumably be here and have no new series to talk about.


Sell it to the Americans, they don't have gap years



Now the story of a successful show that lost everything, and the one general that had no choice but to keep itself together.


How long until the thinkpieces about why a gap year is actually good?





Hell, for the people that LOVE series 11, this is even fucking worse, they get no year of the new version of the show they're enjoying. Everybody in the fandom loses.


When Chibnal said this is for the Netflix audience, he must've literally meant he's going to tank the show until it gets sold to Netflix.



Aren't the netflix audience used to having gap years too?

In ancient Tyre, the Phoenician civilisation commands the oceans. But times are turbulent – the young King’s quarrel with his sister threatens to divide the nation.

On perilous seas, Ian becomes Princess Elissa’s favourite, while Susan and Barbara face losing their freedom. In the city, the Doctor falls foul of King Pygmalion.

As they reach dangerous shores, the travellers fight to survive as legend becomes history…

3.2 Tick-Tock World by Guy Adams

When disaster befalls the TARDIS, its occupants find themselves in a bizarre location, somewhere between space and time.

Desperate survivors hide among ruins, greedy scavenging creatures hunt new prey, and ghosts scream out warnings across time.

All the while, a mysterious woman watches the TARDIS crew, knowing, as sure as tock follows tick, that a terrible fate awaits them…



He will take classes in how to write


If the show dies with the first female doctor, when they revive the show 5-10 years later will they return to a male for a couple incarnations because that's considered safer?

He will be tennant 2.0 in every aspect, because that's the only formula they have that's considered a widespread success




matt is 2

jodie is 3


Can we get a crossover with Eastenders during the gap year?


How do we fix Doctor Who, with the requirement that both chibnall and jodie stay?



Moffat episodes



He hire us as consultants



We get people like Vinay to write the majority of the series





Reminder that if the shooting delay and gap year happens it's almost certainly because Jodie is regenerating by surprise in the New Years' Day special.

We need some sort of name for this hypothetical, interlinked set of outcomes. Specialgate? Whomageddon?



you will be regretting this by monday



Every episode is a 12th doctor crossover episode, with Capaldi getting the final say on everything script wise.

I forgot about that

why was that in the script? How was it relevant to anything that happened?


I don’t know if I’m getting older and find stuff like that episode straight silly or if this season has been just weak.

Mind Blown was better than Series 11 so far

We can't. They're the problem.



Would like to retract?



13 and Graham swap bodies, which would make Bradley Walsh the Doctor.



She looks so much like Jacqueline Hill it's uncanny



Blond Barbar is wrongo


Pet my monkey


13's outfit variant in S12 will involve dyeing her hair a different color



Is that innuendo for something?


Best/Worst Tarantino movie?


5 episodes and we did not get a :

enter tardis


exit tardis somewhere else



B Reservoir

W hateful


How many adventures have this tardis team been on at this point? They're already mentioning adventures that happened off screen, which means we will never get to see their first adventure as official crew, we never got to see their first reaction to the tardis flying somewhere, we never got to see basically any of the "companion firsts" because they all happened off screen



great writing



>How many adventures have this tardis team been on at this point?

The book implies they have lots of adventures



TWWFTE / TGM / 13 attempted landings back on Earth / Rosa / some attempts to land back on Earth (13 seems genuinely surprised to be in Sheffield so they must've been trying a fair few times / Arachnids / at least one journey (arrival on junk planet) leading into Tsuranga

Under 20 unless some were literal head pokes out of the door to see where they were. Over 20 at this point if the books take place in between stories that've already happened which is strange considering that there are things they don't know about each other despite being together for around 20 or so journeys/adventures by now



13 mentions taking graham to some spa planet when he's commenting on being on the wrong junk planet, and that likely happened after arachnids since before then they were just trying to get home.

They only talk to each other in the adventures we see, of course!



The attempts that happened before episode 3, would have to be non-earth and non-past.

They would have to be short trips, in other hand they changed clothes, so maybe not

The book they are proper companions so it is after 4.

Plot too weak


I don't understand why tsuranga is the episode that normies have decided to pick out as having useless side characters

Though actually come to think of it, this is the first episode in the series to actually include side characters at all rather than characters who are directly relevant to the progression of the narrative



Voting's great, I love voting! No one else loves to vote as much as I do, I've been and voted three times now and I think I'm gonna go out and vote again in a minute - some guy knocked on my door and said he's got a bus full of people that he's moving all around downtown so I'm gonna go with him and vote! He must love voting too because he's giving people money simply because they've voted!


If Chibnall was going to go with 3 companions every episode he shouldn't have abolished multi-part stories. I expect episodes like Punjab (which heavily rely on one-off guest characters) will be hamstrung by trying to find decent uses for all the regulars as well.

note that the voice doesn't say "pting" until well after jodie scrunched her face in confusion


I've just finished watching the episode.

Imagine if your parents promised you an expensive games console for Christmas, but instead they just stole an empty tattered up box of the console from somebody's garbage, taped it back together hastily and then drunkenly wrapped it up for you and chucked it under the tree as an afterthought just to shut you up for an hour on Christmas morning.

That was how I felt after watching this episode. Every scene that occured I was unwrapping the present piece by piece and the mix of confusion, twisted in dissapointment, was panicking me with every tear through it.

The characters do not deserve to be called characters. They are cut-outs of characters; outlines. They will tell you exactly what kind of character they are of - they will say: "I did x in y", "remember when x happened in y?", "I learnt how to do x in y class", but they will never actually commit any physical acts showing these character traits. There are bizzare hilarious attempts at trying to create character through physical action (The CoD scene, the Yaz kicking the comatose fucking Stitch alien for no reason only to proceed to smugly tell everybody else that she'd gotten rid of it when she so clearly hadn't MY FUCKING SIDES AHAHAHAHAHA) but these are so sparse and blatantly incompetent that I can't take them seriously.

And that is the one word I will always use to describe this series of Doctor Who forever - incompetent. In every aspect of the word.

The shoddy hack writing which fails to create any suspense or audience engagement: incompetent.

The poor attempts at sci-fi which are conveyed through empty babbling monologues of the Doctor talking to herself with characters just robotically asking nothing questions for the sake of keeping her monologue going: incompetent.

The cheap, sterile environments that are so boring to look at and repeatedly used ad nauseam: incompetent.

The storylines that are cheap nothingness. Creating 2 tense storylines (the alien threat and the detonating bomb) only to have one issue resolve the other with a nothing conclusion: incompetent.

It's a complete and utter trainwreck.


The 1 because I found Pting to be cute and endearing and he/she/it the most I've cared about anybody/thing in this entire series so far.

war lady and brother both used their character traits in the climax, pregnant man had his baby, and nurse lady acts like a nurse throughout

the android is the only cast member for which this is valid, except they don't even introduce "I did x in y" for him


Will demons endorse religious segregation, or portray muslims as being in the wrong?








Inb4 the demons are evil time travelling white males again



I was mainly aiming that comment at the companions, but it may as well apply for all of the characters too since there's no real suspense to highlight any of the extremities of their characters. I mean somebody who should be acting as if their life could end at any moment just acts like their car just got fined and they're a bit peeved for the afternoon because of it.






That's literally the plot of a M Night Shamalan movie



Just saw the Demons of Punjab! why where there no aliens? You just cant have doctor who without aliens! And setting it in pakistan is just really outside of what Doctor Who usually does, so they should have set in in Victorian London or something, to fit with the show's aesthetic. It was good and everything, but I think it should have been in victorian london instead, and had weeping angels



What other positions are there?

It's weird. I both wish 60's Who was in colour, and post-60's Who was black and white. Some of the Tom Baker horror episodes would be kino in black and white.

Done it before. Inferno + horror episodes look great in black/white, especially Pyramids, Seeds of Doom and Planet of Evil.

No, do a Jodie episode audio only. It would actually work.

What would you say is Jodie/13's biggest problem right now?

Personally: presence. The Doctor enters a room and acts like (s)he owns the place, you don't really feel that with her. Maybe it's all part of the Chibmell Masterplan, but even in scenes where she's supposed to be commanding are kinda weak and just fizzle out.

One thing I'm really really gonna miss about Capaldi's era is that it wasn't embarassed of it's past the way it had been before, and apparently afterwards too. They just brought back stuff from classic who, and previous stuff from new who. There was more stock footage and references to Tennant's era than there were with Matt Smith as well. Capaldi's era feels connected to the rest of the show. It feels to me that Capaldi's doctor could meet the zarbi, the slitheen, whatever…. and it wouldn't seem out of place. I don't feel that with Jodie Whittaker's era. Obviously it's only been half a season, but hers seems more distinct in that it might as well not be the same universe as everything else.

Whittaker's era will never feel connected because Chibnall will redesign any old villains.

>Capaldi era never redesigned any old monsters

>Whittaker era will redesign all of them



>Whittaker era

>ever bringing back enough old monsters for this to even matter




There's a scene in Pandorica Opens where River is checking for signals from alien spaceships, and starts name-checking them. She mentions daleks, sontarans, cybermen… and then she mentions a few older villains I think, like drahvins or whatever. When she does, it feels totally out of place for me. I can't speak for everyone, but the idea that there are drahvins in a nearby spaceship somewhere is weird to me personally. It wouldn't be with Capaldi though.


That seems totally out of place to me. I don't honestly get the impression that these fellas are from the same universe. Maybe it's an aesthetic thing, and I'll start to see it as the same universe once the daleks first appear in Whittakers era or whatever.



CGI master



Next series will be all old monsters and they'll all be CGI now.



To be honest, I can't parse that sentence. What are you saying?


>Chibnall will redesign any old villains.

I dont mind that, but I'm glad we got Capaldi's era for that. I wouldn't even hate it if the only old villains we got were like, The daleks and one other thing, like the sontarans or something. Maybe not though, Chibnall era sontarans would just be regular people but we're told they're aliens through dialogue… failing that fully cgi sontarans….



>To be honest, I can't parse that sentence. What are you saying?

Okay so I finally watched it and I actually liked the first 10 minutes and didnt get what the fuss was all about, because the concept is rather great. But then it all went downhill.

>Also, I think this episode finally broke androzani: http://www.androzani.com/tsuranga.shtml

Never heard of this site before but this is based.



this, I know we all like hating Chibnall but this is probably his best decision so far as showrunner. Only downside is he made Moffat ruin his tenure's end for no reason.



Bargain for your fucking life like Martha did in 42, she tried calling her family, she tried escaping.

Or Moorhouse in Mummy on the Orient Express.

This is just fucking lame.



>Don't reply.

This is the best thing Chibnall has ever written.



I like all of these, but I dont like Chibbers taking Chistmas specials so literally, like how Moffat made the episodes about Christmas. Just set them at Christmas like RTD did and then its no big deal.


they're pretty much my go to review place for who even if I dont always agree.



Counterpoint: all of Power of Three except the last 5 minutes

Chibnall will never be this good, RTD probably wrote all of this.



I haven't seen the bit with Astos yet, but Grace was a grandmother. She lived a lifetime and died presumably saving her grandson shuffling off in her husband's arms. It's a better way than most get surely.



Moffat rewrote all of that too.



Cloister, posting on 8chan clearly makes your autism flair up



That's not the point. She's like

>You'll make it right? … Without me?

It's so fucking retarded, like she was aware she was going to die. It's just so fucking unrealistic.



Yeah, RTD did a really good job with all that dialogue.




>RTD had the time for this kind of scenes in a 42 minutes episode

>Chibnall can't even manage a 1/4 of this in 52 minutes

Doctor Who is dead.



Fuck I hate Martha's mom so much.


I never thought I'd say this, but fuck 42 is a masterpiece compared to what we have now.



Segun will never be this good either. I'm about to drop the show guys ;_;



42 was never really that bad desu.

Also, I dont hate Series 11 but I'm happy that its made moffat fans appreciate RTD and RTD fans appreciate moffat. Im seeing that all over now.



No that's one thing I'll disagree with. The music has been pretty top notch and probably the thing I like the most



Not as much as other places.


She could have been aware of her impending death and I can't say I'd say something completely dissimilar if I knew my time was up unexpectedly. I'd probably try and manage I love you, but I'd probably also want the peace of knowing that my loved ones would be ok. Out off all of the hamfisted bonkers shit in that episode, grace's death while pretty pointless other than to tug at your heart strings, wasn't the most egregious for bit me.


Astos was better at being Dr Who than 13 was. He's male version of Clara.



>male version of Clara.

the doctor?




Actually I'll agree with Cloister here. She knew she had a terminal illness, she was in denial but its not a stretch she'd finally accept it.



wait I think im talking about the wrong person



Could be me? /who/ knows.


>67th Century

>Eve hasn't found some future pill to cure her heart condition

>79th Century

>Krasko is racist to black people in a society where humans have fully integrated with aliens

Does Chibnall not know how long centuries are, or is he so cynical that he thinks nobody will develop new inventions and hold on to old ideas dozens of millennia after the current year?


If Chibnall really wants to speed up production time so there's no gap year, he could always go full earthbound.



Imagining a meaningfully different future requires more of an imagination than Chib has.



>terminal illness

so who are you talking about? I'm struggling to think of terminally ill characters rn



>some future pill to cure her heart condition

Maybe a sense of shame over-rid her desire to change her condition. Same reason why Evelyn never asked 6 "Could we go to the year 8 billion so I can try some pills? I'm never getting any younger, you know?"


I hope Chibnall gets pilot's heart.



I hope Chibnall gets an offer to make Jessica Jones and he leaves DW



Why? Do you not like Jessica Jones? Only finished 1 ep and I'm finding it decent


How do you guys think other companions would have reacted upon encountering a cosmic racist, or something that challenges their views on gender, like a pregnant man?

I reckon Rose would have reacted to the pregnant man by calling him 'gay'. I wonder if any of the companions would have liked the cosmic racist



you cannot wish ill things to people, so I just hope he leaves to earn more money and be happier, JJ was just a random suggestion



>I reckon Rose would have reacted to the pregnant man by calling him 'gay'.

She was not that low

But I can see her looking at 10th and they both cracking a laugh about Pregnant Man



She called 9 gay for being a little sensitive in Aliens of London



Dont remember that


I found fascinating the idea of having the same episode with other Doctor



near the start

>ROSE: She slapped you!

>DOCTOR: Nine hundred years of time and space, and I've never been slapped by someone's mother.

>ROSE: Your face.

>DOCTOR: It hurt!

>ROSE: You're so gay. When you say nine hundred years?

>DOCTOR: That's my age.



If Capaldi had done Arachnids in the UK, he would have sent the spiders to a planet where they could live in peace.

Chose one



I like the one with demon horns, what does it represent?



It was so obvious and possible

Get Stormzy boombox on the tardis

the spiders go there, Doctor carry them to a planet where gravity is lower, so they would not suffocate if they get bigger

bonus if the planet is ancient Metabelis 3 and doctor created his own death (3rd) by saving the spiders






BuT tHe CaSuAl FaNs WoUlD fEeL lEfT oUt



If Tennant had done Arachnids in the UK, it would've turned out the spiders were fully sentient and knew they were killing people, and 10 would have had to kill them all while saying "I'm sorry. I'm so sorry."

I've got Doctor Fourth. It's really good and brings back memories of other Mr Men books



It is just weird to me, the females with no pants



Why the fuck did you just ruin the Mr Men books for me



"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry."



first thing I thought as well



the idea of Jodie wearing only socks and boots



the artist formerly known as Prince?




>covering up her hottest feature


I dreamt that Sans from Undertale was a guest star in Series 11



go back to bed kinda



of course you did you fucking weeb








>thinking theres a difference

fucking weeb



agreed, but … still kinky



Dream about me

>The First Doctor Adventures Volume Three sees the Doctor (David Bradley) continuing to travel with the original TARDIS team, Ian Chesterton (played by Jamie Glover), Barbara (played by Jemma Powell) and Susan (played by Claudia Grant) and this time they’re also joined by another member of the original cast as Carole Ann Ford plays ‘The Woman’.

>The Woman



>challenges their views on gender

No sweetie, people aren't challenged, they just laugh at the complete faggotry. Men are men and come with dick and balls, women are women and come with tits and vag, anyone else is broken and needs a mental institution.



The question if Ford will confirm that Bradley happens in alternate universe or they consider him as the same as Hartnell



Liz disagrees


>I met Andrew Cartmel, honestly one of the loveliest people ever. It was at LFCC, I came up to him and told him I loved his era of the show and he was really happy and then asked me to sit down beside him at his stand and we just talked for half an hour. He also gave me free signed postcards of behind the scenes of Season 26 because he liked me so much!

He was so lovely I bought his book even though I didn’t intend to when I approached him.



The Masterplan is happening



<insert loom joke here>


12x01 Return of the Masterplan by Andrew Cartmel



The scene where 13 smashes the vortex manipulator is actually good. I'm convinced Jodie would be good if 13 were a more serious Doctor. Basically 13 should be 9, then Jodie would be kino.



I mean, maybe we're disagreeing on the language used, but if someone is challenged on their view of gender, they're free to refute the challenge entirely, and declare it total bullshit. So it's not that their view isn't challenged, it's that the challenge gets refuted. That's how I see it, but it's just pedantic at that point



Didn't mean for that to be a reply, oops.



How would you follow on from 12 as a character? Where do you think the Doctor should go after Capaldi's regen?



so she's older susan then? sounds neat









why bbc hates us



or alternate, that is neater



I do agree, that's the problem. Jodie is a wrong choice for this kind of Doctor, Chibnal obviously had s female version of Matt Smith in mind.




I also met him at LFCC, he recognized me from an earlier con and let me sit at his side too.

He's genuinely very nice.



I disagree that Jodie is the wrong choice. She's clearly been directed to act like tennant, but Whittaker is capable of different tones. I'm of the opinion that JW was a good choice for the Doctor, but she's not a Doctor Who fan, she's reliant on what Chibnall tells her the Doctor is like, etc… she's been sent in the wrong direction imho


would be interesting if they confirmed the bradley master audios as being their own universe or something. I find it hard to listen to audio dramas nowadays though, so I probably wont get it.



>Everyone thinks he's either pathetic, creepy, or both.

conservatives relate to him
