Let's get this straight

>3 hour audio all written by the one writer, a definite rarity for Briggs Finish

>Guy Adams, same guy who wrote some kino Torchwood monthlies, 7/River's meeting, the All-Consuming Fire adaption, the good 1DA story

>Features the ENTIRE original Torchwood cast together

>Arthur Darvill plays the villain

>"The Church of the Outsiders believe that mankind is about to evolve, to reach out into the stars. Owen Harper believes that Torchwood has to do whatever it takes to stop them"

>"This is a unique production from Briggs Finish. A full complement of female writers, combined with a mainly female cast, a female director and a female producer, creates a distinct portrayal of these courageous women. The stories never falter into melodrama but show the stoic strength of these independent and daring pilots… ATA Girl surprised me with the depth of honesty and grit. It is a beautiful homage to the brave women of the ATA.”

>ATA Girl is a drama inspired by the real women of the Air Transport Auxiliary during WWII. From the UK and beyond, a hundred and sixty eight female pilots, alongside the men, transported a vast range of aircraft from the factories to the squadrons, sometimes flying in perilous weather conditions and without radios or instrument instruction.

>One in ten ATA pilots died.

>>19097

1.1 Up in the Air by Gemma Page

It’s March 1944 and young widow Daphne Coyne arrives at the Air Transport Auxiliary, having signed up to train as a new pilot. Already unsure of her decision, she is shocked to find that her estranged younger sister, Rebecca, has also joined the ATA, hoping for a chance of reconciliation. As Daphne grows close to her flying instructor, the injured former RAF pilot, David, and discovers an unexpected passion for flying, the two sisters try to navigate their broken relationship. But David has family trapped in Belgium and Daphne has a plan that could jeopardise all of their futures…

1.2 Dancing With A Spitfire by Victoria Saxton

In 1942, Glamorous ‘It Girl’, Second Officer Mina Lauderdale is enjoying her work with the ATA, flying her aircraft recklessly and living up to her nickname, ‘The Wildcard’! However, amidst all of the press attention, the partying and the endless flirting, Mina is secretly running away from an unwanted destiny. It’s only when she meets outspoken US pilot Jeanette that Mina finally begins to discover her true self and face up to the reality of who she wants to be.

1.3 Flying Blind by Helen Goldwyn

1942-43, Judith Heathcote has been with the ATA since the start and is one of the few mothers in the Corps. With her husband ‘missing presumed dead’ and her daughter living with her parents, Judith is beginning to question the sacrifices she’s making for the war effort. Seen as a maternal figure by many of her colleagues, it seems that Judith looks out for everyone but herself. So when a chance of happiness arises, she seizes upon it, only to find herself caught up in a series of events that propel her towards an unthinkable solution.

1.4 Grounded by Jane Slavin

It’s early 1945. The end of the war is closer than the pilots realise, but meanwhile there is an unexpected air raid to contend with. When the sirens sound at the ATA ferry pool, the women have to find a way to protect themselves and each other: some making it to the bomb shelter, whilst others are trapped above. Elsewhere, RAF pilot Walter (already traumatised by his war experience) has come to seek solace with ATA pilot Amelia. She and her best friend Widdley, do their best to comfort him, but with war still raging around them, they are reminded of losses suffered… and losses still to come…

I think his willingness to have an actual dialogue about them should inspire some hope surely? He's firm in his views but not thought-terminating in his reactions to others. If your discomfort is just from his views being so antithetical to yours I understand, but that's an inescapable eternal reality of interacting with other people, and the fact you both can talk to (or swipe at) each other instead of locking yourselves down in echo chambers seems an extraordinarily not-bothersome thing to me.

Undoubtedly, and as someone from a rural area who has had the associated stereotypes lobbed at me because of it I fully understand everything wrong with the term (and remain amused at the absurdity at a term so completely and utterly indicative of why the "cletuses" have made such headway in recent years is deployed despite all that), but if you try and instigate actual discussion with Cats instead of just responding to the insults in kind, he will actually offer points up. He will usually do it in a jocular style, but he will actually offer up talking points. This is the opposite of soyism. He doesn't shrink away and hide his views in a veil of irony or infantile playfulness, he offers them up and can receive the associated mockery and indicative because of that. For all the meta irony in his sense of humour, he is genuine in his views and personality. This is a large part of why I resist conflating "soyboy" as a sort of catch-all insult (like "cuck" transformed into), it means a specific thing, and it's something that he isn't. He is thought terminating in his insults but not in his willingness to actually put his views out there, despite the fact the most vocal of the types of /who/res that talk about politics are the type to ridicule those views.

As someone who uses the term "cletus" a lot, I completely agree with your assessment of it being problematic. Anywhere outside of 4chan (or 8chan, I guess) I would disagree with and discourage its use. However, I think in this setting it's really useful. The people that use chan sites are generally toxic, for lack of a better word, and rely heavily on slurs and insults to communicate. You can't use the same approach as you would with normal people to get through to them, and so cats did us a great service by providing "cletus" as an anti-bigotry weapon we can use. It's fun, and best of all it works. It actually gets to them and can shut down sexist/racist posts pretty effectively.

Your use of "soyboy" is far more morally questionable, in my opinion.

I really like a lot of Lungbarrow but really hate the idea of looms the more and more I consider it. I roll my eyes mightily at desexualisation of the Doctor, and I feel that's the ultimate lore example of it (the handwaving of Susan over the decades is the bigger example and I remain irritated the Capaldi years, so caught up in considering Hartnell's era in so many ways, never dealt with any of that). One of the things I'm most thankful to RTD for is so explicitly repositioning the Doctor as a sexualised figure. There were some growing pains with it but I think the show is much better off for what he did in the long run.

Looms fit more into a broader pattern of desexualising the Doctor is what I mean, in how they literally take sex out of the equation.

I don't think RTD and Moffat making it seem like Time Lords just have a fairly regular childhood is a great idea either, for what it's worth.

Asexual doctor is a nasty little JN-T holdover idea that people like to cling to


 No.19236

>>19235

Absolutely, although I think RTD demolished it as thoroughly as anyone could, and Moffat pulled the follow-through. The Dying Days succeeding Lungbarrow seems a funny kind of transition of takes on sexuality though come to think of it. 4 was implicitly sexual but JNT's transformation of the Doctor into a more flavourless superhero type figure came with all the infantalisation that implies. I don't think Davison helped either - some would argue his youthful good looks actually brought a more "sexualised" approach insofar as making him eye candy in a way the preceding Doctors hadn't been, but I think that falls much more into the "relatively effeminate boy bands a preteen can comfortably crush on unthreatened" pattern rather than an actual sex symbol or anything. Then again, Tennant was undoubtedly a sex symbol and decidedly geek chic, but I think fandom and audience were very different at that point, and Tennant has a more striking, adult appeal than Davison's boyish good looks.

That's a really interesting point. I think 4's unbridled bohemian-ness and masculinity, along with his couple-esque pairing with Romana kind of speaks louder than that sort of line which fits into 4's tendency to be much more alien and mad than the earlier Doctors. I feel like in terms of sexuality, JNT made the Doctor less human whereas 4 made him more alien, if that makes sense?

> Sure enough, hidden behind that smiling face was a mediocre actor, and also a multimillionaire snob in the proudest British tradition. Far from being a symbol of rebellion, he was reactionism personified. The Fifth Doctor, optimistic and effervescent, represented an escape from reality. People, kids in particular, had a desperate need to believe in something that had nothing to do with bombs and upheaval. Peter Davison put to screen the enthusiasm of the masses and in return, in a cycle that bordered on perpetual motion, was enthusiastically acclaimed by the same masses.

> The best of the Fifth Doctor's cliches is summarized in a famous anecdote. In the 1982 serial Earthshock, Davison answered the Cyberleader's queries as to the meaning of life with "For some people, small, beautiful events is what life is all about!" Beneath this naive sense of humor, anarchic and surreal, lays the greatest merit of the actor.

> As usual with Smith, Series Seven (2012-2013), produced again by Steven Moffat, is mostly image and very little about the plots. The 77-minute Day of the Doctor, that was supposed to be the centerpiece, is little more than a funereal litany a` la Alien Bodies with Dalek CGI that goes on 30 minutes too many. Smith mooning melodramatic in Nightmare in Silver (from his West End musical about a psychopath who listens to Huey Lewis and the News) or romantic in The Snowmen is either delirious and pathetic, certainly not entertaining. His tedious voice interferes with the slower domestic dynamic of The Power of Three and with the frenzied and tense Cold War (a Gatiss standout). Even when the voice is not a distraction, the rest is hardly intriguing: Time of the Doctor boasts an awfully distorted plot against syncopated beats and layers of electronic drones: not exactly genius. This is trivial "television" that any amateur could make, except that most amateurs would be ashamed to broadcast it.

this is generally the sort of thing that keeps me from connecting with most of Sandifer's stuff. she seems to think that the primary purpose of Doctor Who is not to simply be bizzarre and interesting, but to constantly subvert our expectations

Shrinking down and going inside something is standard Doctor Who.

That 'something' being a Dalek is where it tips over into strange, because the idea is fundamentally unintuitive to the Daleks' role in the show. No-one has ever given a fuck about what's inside a Dalek, they just roll around killing people, which is what makes going inside of one so insane as a premise even for Who.

Like with British politics and culture, Sandy sometimes stumbles with Star Wars because she's not really a "native" of it; she freely admits it holds little interest for her and her work on it is pretty much all couched either in Doctor Who or just writing articles to get views/keep the readers happy. Not to invalidate her opinions at all, but to contextualise why she might go even harder contrarian at times talking Star Wars, or write things like that clearly ignorant of Lucas' actual career (perhaps willfully so, given his love of the monomyth, her mortal enemy).


 No.19350

>>19351

Let me rephrase. No-one has ever given a fuck about what the casing of a Dalek would be like to walk around inside while ant-sized. All we have ever needed to know about a Dalek interior is that there's a big ugly mutant sat in it, everything else is purely academic (or stuff for illustrations in fan annuals >>19350).

The episode itself actually struggles with this problem, because - since the Dalek is just a mutant sat in a tank - "inside the Dalek" ends up just translating to some dull looking sets, a slide, and one gunge pit, rather than anything that actually gives us a bold new perspective on the Daleks. It's just an arbitrary pretext for the episode to try and make up exciting things on top of, rather than an interesting setting in itself.

And it's a fundamentally unintuitive premise for a Dalek story because if you're walking around inside the Dalek, it can't do the one thing it's good at - shoot you with its death ray. It's only near the end, when 12 reaches the mutant and starts mind-linking with it, that being inside the Dalek gains any useful relationship to how Daleks actually function in stories, because 12 is then able to influence how the Dalek acts out in the real world (where the actual Dalek story is happening). For most of the runtime, the episode is just walking around a big metal playground.

"Evil as engineering" and the whole morality as malfunction thing was an attempt at that, you might not consider it bold but it's a big part of the story. Literally getting inside the Dalek's head also feeds into the Doctor's character arc for the series.

everything that makes the Daleks interesting revolves around their psychology/philosophy

it's the old Nation/Whittaker dynamic

if your Dalek idea is something that Terry Nation would come up with (formulaic shooty action setpieces w/heavy-handed facism metaphors obvious to anyone with any knowledge of history) it might be a bit shit

if your dalek idea is something David Whittaker would come up with (Daleks have wacky scheme/project presented as an organic outgrowth of their overall universe-conquering philosophy, which manifests as a twisted parody of human philosophy/infastructure and (hopefully) provides insightful and original commentary on the nature of evil and the dangers inherent to the overriding "progress"-oriented mindset inherent to modern society) you're on the right track

Hugh Grant would probably be more evocative of the classic era through voice and presumed style. People tend not to notice that Eccleston's clothes and voice help separate him from previous Doctors because he's lost the pomp and the style that defined 1 to 8.

Still, if Hugh Grant switched with Eccles and kept the same levels of anger it'd be kino. Eccleston fits 9 perfectly though, so it'd be hard to top.

one question, why, why did he do the chance. in tardis, in clotes and in hair style. Why did they change everything on the second part of season 7 and didnt wait for the regeneration. it is a insult to the Capaldi.


 No.19505

>>19504

Moff and Matt were both still planning to do S8 together at that time, 11's first TARDIS was very tied to his "family" time with the Ponds and River, and the new TARDIS offered the very exciting opportunity of 360 availability for camera placement.

I'm actually quite the fan of different Doctors keeping the same TARDIS and there just being subtle adjustments (the lighting shift when 10 had the coral TARDIS, the decor and light change when 12 had the 360 TARDIS).


 No.19506

>>19504

I will say I agree with you in a way that there's odd kind of "aborted" feeling to Matt's big changeup only lasting, well, less than a series' worth of episodes, but I like Doctors shifting around like that, and hey, in-universe the 7B Matt spent much more time existing (at Trenzalore) than the 5-7A Matt did. I'm biased because I greatly preferred the costume and attitude of latter Matt to early Matt too.

Part of the whole fun of a series which is based around its ability to change every single aspect is seeing those aspects change at different times and overlap in different ways. If each Doctor just simply got a new sonic and new TARDIS in their first episode it would be boring. Same goes for companions. The series benefits a lot from Rose making the transfer from 9 to 10 and Clara from 11 to 12. Or Sarah Jane from 3 to 4.

I wonder if we'll ever see a Doctor survive the transition between Showrunners.

Honestly you got a tonne of it in RTD and Moff's runs anyway; his approach to Doctor Who was pretty influential back in the day and definitely bled into, and meshed well with, what RTD and Moff did. Very humanist, character-based, happy-endings-even-where-not-appropriate, strong sense of what makes stories work. He would not have gone as weird or far as Moff went at times, but I don't think he would have gone as pandering as RTD either. He lacked the TV experience to produce the series as well as either of them I'd imagine too. I really do think they should have used him more as a writer though. Parkin deserved a go too imo, even with his lack of TV experience.

That's so funny because I rewatched the episode recently and for the first time ever had the thought that it would've been funny if it had led straight into the intro with Jack still on the TARDIS. I'd never heard that idea before, had no idea it was actually considered.

Did he shoot it down because it's too corny?


 No.19576

>>19575

It's definitely in The Writer's Tale but I can't remember his specific reasoning. It annoyed me because I really like tweaking credits in fun meta ways.

Related: originally the new style of credits that premiered in The Snowmen were not to appear until the END of the episode, like there would be no intro credits, then when the episode ended the intro credits would happen then lead into the end credits. This would signify how unDoctory 11 was at the start of the ep (sulking, not being the Doctor) and by how the end he'd become the Doctor again (travelling in the TARDIS feeling renewed with new purpose).
