I like that bit in the middle of the trailer which is basically a condensed version of the series 11 trailer, with all the guest actors looking up dramatically. Series 11's just like 'let's do that but with nothing exciting to go with it.'

DOCTOR: Just keep looking at me, Craig. Right at me. Just keep looking.

CRAIG: Why?

DOCTOR: Well, because, because, because I love you.

CRAIG: You love me?

DOCTOR: Yes, Craig. It's you. It's always been you.

CRAIG: Me?

DOCTOR: Is that so surprising?

(The Doctor puts his arms around Craig's neck and uses the sonic screwdriver on whatever it behind the definitely not a lift any more scene behind him.)

CRAIG: Doctor, are you going to kiss me?

DOCTOR: Yes, Craig. Yes, I am. Would you like that? Bit out of practice, but I've had some wonderful feedback.

CRAIG: Doctor, no. I can't. I'm taken.

I love watching reactions to Utopia from people who have only seen all of new who up to that point since when I first watched it I had seen none of the relevant episodes that are brought up (Parting of the Ways, Doomsday, Gridlock) but I had seen a lot of classic episodes with the Master so it's fun to see people with complete opposite knowledge react to it

Made by the same people behind Dorian Gray and written by Guy Adams it is genuinely the scariest release produced by Big Finish that I've listened. Eve Myles plays the lead and isn't even the best performance in the set. Hide and Seek and Solstice sent shivers down my spine almost every scene.

MARTHA: Because the thing is, it's like my friend Vicky. She watched this show, public broadcasting, there were six million of them all watching, and this show was called Doctor Who. And she loved it. She did. She completely adored it. Spent all day long talking about it.

DOCTOR: Is this going anywhere?

MARTHA: Yes. Because it never looked at her twice. I mean, it liked her watching, but that was it. And she wasted years watching it. Years of her life. Because while it was around, she never watched anything else. And I told her, I always said to her, time and time again, I said, get out. So this is me, getting out.

It didn't make any of the mistakes Moffat made. You see, Moffat did interesting things, and took risks. By not doing anything interesting, or taking any risks, Chibnall has avoided all the mistakes Moffat made. Moffat sometimes had a dodgy character arc, Chibnall got rid of character arcs. Moffat sometimes had a plot that was messy, Chibnall got rid of plot! Series 11 truly is astonishingly adequate now!!!

I'm trying to imagine being so fucking stupid that not only would I legitimately hold such a terrible opinion but I'd also, like some kind of defective audio clip, keep sharing it every thread like it's something to be proud of. I simply can't fathom a mind capable of this sort of thing but also coherent enough to type and upload images and solve captchas. The only possible explanation is that it's some deranged attempt at comedy, which still posits an intensely defective mind as it's not funny or interesting, but at least brings it into the realm of possibility.

I've been rewatching Series 8 (episodes 1-6 were all fucking bangers btw) since I first watched it when it aired. I was thinking about skipping this episode due to how bad I thought it was, that it was unwatchable, but I decided to watch it.

And to be honest the episode wasn't as bad as I thought. The main problem is the premise and story of the episode but it was more enjoyable that I thought it would be. The pace was pretty good, the characterization of Clara, the Doctor and the disruptive influence girl were great, and overall I enjoyed it. The resolution was pretty cool and satisfying as well and broke some tropes, the Doctor seeing the future was amazing. A far cry from what my memory was and what we all say about it on Reddit

By the time of Peter Capaldi's 12th Doctor, Moffat had ceased writing stories to fit the characters and began bending the characters to fit the season-long story arcs he crafted around the philosophical issues he wished to explore. Clara Oswald- The Impossible Girl who existed in multiple times - was not so much a character as she was a living mystery for the Doctor to solve and then a deus ex machina who could save the Doctor whenever he needed someone as clever as himself to get out of this week's jam. It is telling that Capaldi's Doctor seemed to suffer from an identity crisis as the show went on, first wondering if he was a good man and then changing personalities in successive seasons to accommodate new characterizations as an aging punk rocker and an eccentric professor.

Chris Chibnall seemed to take the complaints about Moffat's later seasons to heart when he was crafting the stories, companions and new personality of the Doctor while writing season 11. The new season lacked an overall arc, though the finale "The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos" did make use of the same villain as the premiere. The season was also made entirely of one-shot stories, rather than the intricate two-parters that came to dominate Moffat's era as showrunner and extend simple ideas too far.

The large ensemble of companions in Doctor Who season 11 seemed to have been created as a response to complaints that Moffat's stories often focused on the companions at the expense of the Doctor. With three new companions sharing her adventures, it was impossible for any one character to overshadow the Doctor the same way that Clara Oswald and Bill Potts often took over the 12th Doctor's stories. As for the new Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker, she proved herself to be a more upbeat and proactive Doctor than the brooding and depressive characters that the 11th and 12th Doctors truly were under their occasionally manic masks. This lent a sense of energy and urgency to the new season that was sorely needed after six seasons of Moffat's management.

The series very clearly had character arcs for both graham and ryan - graham getting over his grief, and ryan getting over his father figure hangups to become more affectionate with graham. You can call the arcs simplistic, dumb and clunky, but to say they don't exist shows you either weren't paying attention or are incapable of meaningful analysis

Obviously meaningless.

>Didn't sort out not doing the christmas special, so Moffat had to suddenly dive in and stop the slot from being lost forever

That is fair, though I understand his reasoning.

>Was indirectly or otherwise responsible for Cyberwoman

Now this just demonstrates the poster has no idea what they're talking about - he was directly responsible for Cyberwoman, at least make your complaints have some coherency. He was the writer, and quite involved in Torchwood series 1 in general (he actually shadow showran series 2 as well). Yes, this is absolutely a knock against him. Make it, instead of a bunch of other points that make no sense.

>Wrote all kinds of bullshit for early Torchwood (aka the bit of Torchwood that is bad)

No, he wrote all kinds of stuff for series 2, much more acclaimed than series 1. This isn't hidden knowledge, the information is freely available. Again, there's little evidence of the poster actually being familiar with Chibnall's career on display.

>Dissed JNT but is still recreating S19

It was silly when Sandifer said this, and it's silly now. We know so little of S19 and it is the thinnest of superficialities to think S11 will honestly be like just because "the show has lore now, and three companions" (note they're not even called companions in the press release - potentially meaningless, but still).

>Drops huge announcements randomly at 10.30pm with no fanfare just because it makes Gareth Roberts happy

Again, nothing really to address here, the papers next day obviously covered it.

>Put an Ood in the loo

What is even the criticism here? Pond Life is well liked.

>Is yet another dyed-in-the-wool fan nut type who is on video sperging about Pip and Jane as a young man

Hardly, he's shown disinterest for the wilderness era and his entire career has focused on character over plot, let alone lore.

Series 2 has many merits, although I respect that many disagree. Series 3 was again very acclaimed, both critically and in terms of ratings.

>Is stuffing Doctor Who with recurring characters in his first series because he only knows how to write one kind of show

RTD and Moffat both deployed their strengths as well, because that's how good writers work. Chibnall maps character-heavy storylines onto procedural style plots because that allows him to most effectively craft his type of stories.

>Has never (never ever) written a genuinely good Doctor Who episode

Obviously subjective, though I broadly agree he's never written a "great" one. However, he's not signed on to write an episode, he's signed on to run a show, and he has much more experience and success in that field.

>Will frontload the series with boring Earth/relationships drama because it's easier than writing a plot

Doctor Who is a television show. This over emphasis on plot is bizarre. A story is not comprised solely of plot, and there are hundreds of hours of Doctor Who plots already in existence. Concentrating on telling strong stories through techniques he's honed over his long and successful career is precisely what he should be doing, not writing arbitarily complicated plots just for the sake of it. Even writers like the Nolans demonstrate awareness they're writing in a medium with visuals and actors.

>Ended every season of Broadchurch with an anticlimactic reveal disappointing millions of viewers

Patently untrue, series 1's ending was hugely acclaimed, and series 3's was very well-received as well. The high ratings for each successive series' premiere display this.

>Is only known for half-assed "characterkino" that pales when compared to actually excellent writing

So subjective it's near impossible to respond to. Broadchurch works on many levels that have literally nothing to do with the characters; Chibnall has a strong sense of how to use weaponise the geography a show returns to often in story moments, and his focus on cinematography and general style (musical, visual, etc.) above the general BBC or ITV inhouse look shows this. The Chibnall "characterkino" thing is a /who/ meme that's deeply reductive, so twisting it into an insult is not even a worthwhile attack on him in the first place.

>Only increased ep length by five minutes meaning they will still be rushed to fuck (and there will be two fewer of them)

Fair criticism, although there's no indicator he'll follow the sort of pacing that will make it feel rushed.

Overall the post is very ignorant about Chibnall's actual career and style. There are many criticisms one can make against Chibnall…but this post isn't making them.

Some of my own thoughts on Chibnall's style are as follows

*he loves writing ensembles and will do his best to contort shows/episodes into being ensemble even if the premise doesn't really lend itself to that,

*he likes empathising with every character (that sounds trite but it's not a completely common thing, it's noticeable how he tries to humanise some truly despicable people in Broadchurch, and you can see it in eps like The Hungry Earth and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship too when he really doesn't seem to have that kind of authorial condemnation of unpleasant characters),

(more to come)


 No.178351

>>178333

do you have this without the MAGA on his blanket


 No.178352

>>178350

*he likes using procedural drama as a blueprint for stories (I'm sure this is part of why he worked on Law and Order UK), this is most obvious in how Broadchurch wears its influences on its sleeve and uses them as a sort of plot fallback (he's clearly more interested in characters than plots, see The Power of Three also, hence using very structured procedural-styled plots underneath so he can move to the stuff he's interested in more quickly) but you can see it in TW a lot too. I'm interested how his obviously huge fanboyism will clash with what seems to be his natural mode of storytelling (light on mythology+intricate plot, heavy on character)

Another thing about Chibnall I've noticed in interviews, and I think this might play into why it's taking so long for S11 to film, is that he's very particular about control. RTD wasn't like that, he was a pragmatic procrastinator with an enormous talent for creating successful TV. Moffat isn't like that, he's very keenly aware of how things change in planning stages to actual production, look at his comments about S6 and the 50th to see how aware of it he is. But Chibnall seems very firm about it. Not as a naive thing, but in that it's more important to him to have more control over the finished product, even if it comes at the expense of other things.

A few quotes

>The Beast Below is probably one of Steven’s best ever scripts, and the production of it was so not what was in the script. I remember watching that and thinking, ‘Oh,’ because it’s a really beautiful, operatic visual piece of writing. It’s bigger than The End of the World, but actually the way the visuals went, something wasn’t quite right on the production of that. The tone of it is odd as well, the tone of it is not the tone of the script. And tone is something that often goes unrecognised as a key component in things. I think it’s always fascinating.

Look at his comments about the Silurian episodes here too http://www.starburstmagazine.com/features/interviews/4597-interview-chris-chibnall-part-2-doctor-who-and-beyond He is very stuck on the cuts and how the episode changed in prod and editing.

Look at how he's handled spoiler culture for Broadchurch and the rumours of how he's gonna handle Doctor Who Stalker Reports too, he's very firm on trying to cultivate a certain experience for a show rather than how RTD would privilege press and marketing over story at times, and how Moff would retreat just to the more writing side of showrunner duties and pick his battles when it came to spoilers (see Simm reveal this year for example).

The big quote from Chibnall I find interesting on that matter is this

>But some of this is because I’m also a very hands-on executive producer from pre-production to tx, I’m involved in all the decisions, from design to casting to lighting to cuts to music. So on my own pieces now, like Broadchurch, I help deliver the show we’ve promised to make, that we intended to make. And that’s the hard bit, really. The biggest pitfall in television production is the gap between intention and execution. It’s a very strange and complex process and it has to be shepherded through very gently and delicately, but also with a degree of toughness. A million things can go wrong, from first idea to final edit, and most often they’re not anybody’s fault. Everybody’s trying as hard as they can, working as hard as they can.

It’s the hardest thing to do in TV, to achieve what you set out to achieve, and that’s why, for me, something like Dinosaurs works, because it delivers what we set out to deliver. Steven wanted a fast, funny blockbuster romp with incredible scale and we managed to do that. Then, you get The Power of Three which is entirely different: much more intimate in its intent but I also think it delivers what it promises: time with the Ponds, and an examination of their developing relationship with the Doctor and each other.

>And maybe that’s the thing about the first season of Torchwood, it doesn’t quite deliver what it’s trying to deliver, because we’re trying to work out what it is and how we do it on time and to budget, and it’s thirteen episodes from nothing.

>So that’s what you aim for, and I think for me, what I’m excited about and terrified about with Broadchurch, is I feel it’s very close to what I intended, and I don’t know whether people will like that

Broadchurch's strengths were conflated with its writing, rather than it being genuinely well-written. It's an uncomfortable blackpill but one I'm sure of. The show has excellent production values, an excellent and singular aesthetic, and a fucking excellent cast, all of which mask the shallowness and stereotypicality of the characters. Note that the weak actors in S11, and to an extent some of the performances in early Torchwood, exposed this. You throw Olivia Coleman and David Tennant at anything and they'll make it work. You throw Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill at something…

I do maintain Broadchurch was a good show and there was good stuff in those scripts but I don't think it can be held up as a Sherlock level "he made one masterpiece, how come his skills didn't transfer over?" type aberration in Chibnall's skillset.

I'm trying to look but I can't actually find a source for "5 year plan"

The closest I can find is this sy-fi article

https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/doctor-who-chris-chibnall-on-bold-five-year-plan

But they created the term "5-year plan" for the headline.

In the body of the article, they include

>Seemingly on board for the next five years (yup!)

Which is based on this source interview they link on the page:

https://rts.org.uk/article/chris-chibnall-man-who-reinvented-cliffhanger

The only mention of 5 years is a quote from James Strong, a director Chibnall's worked with on DW,TW and broadchurch

>Strong says that he is “a mixture of surprised and not surprised” that Chibnall accepted the Doctor Who job: “I know what a big fan of the show he is and I know how much he feels he has a vision for it.

>“Any reticence would be about the scale and length of the commitment. It’s a five-year project. That was a huge decision. He’s in his absolute prime and could have done whatever he wanted, writing-wise. It’s an absolutely wonderful result for Doctor Who. I think Chris, essentially, writes emotional thrillers, and that’s perfect for that show.”

"It's a five-year project" in this context can easily just be a rounded estimate, since it's not even chibnall saying it.

The only other thing I could find is

http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/bbcw-plans-indicate-new-who-to-run-until-at-least-series-15-84972.htm

>The deal not only covers Showrunners Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat’s Series 1- 10, but also incoming Showrunner Chris Chibnall’s yet-to-film Series 11, as well as a first look for Series 12-15.

But even in this press release, it explicitly does not attribute Series 12-15 to chibnall.

That's the one thing Chibnall did right. He's kept the "lol I'm a woman now" jokes to a minimum. It's possible that having a boring Showrunner for the first female Doctor was a good thing. Moffat is clearly the superior Showrunner, but Jodie would've been grabbing her tits and yelling "I'm a woman now!" in her first scene if it was him.

I get what you mean and I know we both raged for similar reasons about the whole scripts-written-for-men thing, but I don't think not making a huge deal out of her being the first women Doctor is the worst thing in the world in the end. If a future woman Doctor suddenly starts getting more interesting genderbased storylines, that's really not that different from the fact 1 and 2 didn't have any storylines examinating their masculinity (some would even argue it took until 12 for gender to be a big focus). It doesn't lock off the Doctor self-examining their gender. We lost the most logical point for it but we lost the most logical point for Susan to return after TUAT happened too. We'll live.

>>178491

I genuinely think 13-24 should be women honestly, but I know that won't happen. 14 should definitely be a woman. After that I think opening it up more would be fine, I just want precedent to be set beyond Jodie, it should be normalised more. It's not like there aren't tonnes of actresses out there that wouldn't be based for the part.

I agree with a lot of this but I think making 13 so submissive and reactive is worse in some, more insidious, ways. But it will all blow over and if 14 is a woman and a character well performed it won't have mattered at all.

Me too, but I didn't want to verge anybody by saying that. At the very least, I don't think we should see another white male in the role for the next cycle.

Oh that goes without saying. It's a role that lends itself to diversity anyway, and I think makes sense for a second cycle to have the Doctor being different identities than they're used to, although I doubt Chibnall has ever thought of that lol. I still want Paterson Joseph to have a crack at the role desune. That evil lawyer from Broadchurch sticks in my head too, she had a really interesting screen presence and I'd love a really no-bullshit, acerbic Doctor like 1 or 6 but obviously different like that. 14 being a woman and POC is obviously the best solution but yeah I'm not especially hopeful we'll get it.

My issue with 5 is basically two things and honestly both you can blame nearly as much on Tom's era and JNT in general - I think going more human instead of more alien after 4 was a bad choice and made the role and character smaller instead of bigger and more expansive, and I think using the same type of story engine (Doctor and companions travel around space and time getting into scrapes) for a fifth Doctor locked it into becoming what the show was instead of just a version of it (4 using that structure was tolerable because he modulated through such different aesthetics and his era was very distinctly written in-general, 3 obviously didn't use that structure at all). It made Doctor Who instead of a show that could be loads of different Doctor Whos, if you know what I mean? Davison's quiet, mildly annoyed performance didn't help things. He's a good actor and he performed the role "well", but I think it was such a profoundly boring and restrictive direction to take the character, and the show. Luckily 6 made things more interesting, and even flipped the show's structure up in S23, but we all know what happened there.

Yeah a woman as showrunner would be great, shame there's so few in the industry, at least in the UK.

It meant not being the Daleks.

I think that 14 should def be female. I suspect 14's going to be a non-white female, actually. After that, anything can go from there. Mandating that the rest of the cycle should be non-white-men privileges the idea of "cycles" too much, really.

It's nothing to do with the actual cycle, it's about evening the fucking numbers after getting 13ish white male Doctors in a row. Balancing the numbers, giving others a go.

Funny thing is that I could probably do with a rewatch of 11 more than any series since I watched most of the episodes on stream and I shitposted so hard I probably barely paid attention throughout some scenes, clearly I might have missed out on some of Chibnall's subtle and nuanced writing
