>Since I was 12 years old there was a book I read, which is ‘Dune,’ which is my favorite book, with ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four.’ After ‘Prisoners,’ the producer of Alcon asked me what I would like to do next. I said, ‘Dune,’ spontaneously, that if anyone could get me the rights for ‘Dune’ — and I knew it was very difficult to get those rights. For me it was just a dream, and I guess I’m lucky that Mary Parent from Legendary got the rights and offered it to me. I can’t say no to that. I have images that I am haunted by for 35 years. I will not say no to that. That’s going to be the project of my life. And if anyone tries to prevent me from achieving this vision, I will use everything within my power to destroy them with all the finality I can bring to bear.

Ironically she's arguably a lot more left than all the others - if you know what I mean.


Yeah some of the western MSM reaction is very silly, it is not a weird thing at all, especially for China. I wonder if it'll play on any of those vertical lift screen things for ads too. The only weird thing is that breakfast lmao.



Actually I will say Tom looks a bit off to me in it, his hair seems kind of……I guess people are loving it so maybe it's just me but ehhh



His hair seems a bit greasy. Can you see it as well?



Maybe they were applying data on the type of hairstyles chinese women like?

Also that breakfast is the rainbow of colors of the centrum logo, isn't it?



I'd say it's just got heavy amounts of product in it to keep it sitting like that


File: 82e7ed797d5ffaf⋯.jpg (74.62 KB, 768x512, 3:2, tom-hiddleston-sagg-aftra.jpg)


Yeah absolutely. Also the styling looks kind of JUST to me too. He's a super handsome dude but that's doing him no favours and also the goatee seems kind of trashy on him imo.


Yeah it's definitely possibly they were running off data on what sort of hair they like, also possible that's just the best they could do with whatever his hair was naturally between his projects at the time. Good call on the logo, I hadn't thought of that.



Yeah, this is more likely but I'm sure you can see what I mean when I say that, right?


I think the style is fine, it'd just look nicer with less product.


In interviews Hiddleston regularly drops little facts about the source material of stuff he's doing (i.e. comic references in MCU interviews); he takes his job quite seriously, it's neat. Really loved his Henry V too.

Season 24 has only one bad story, Time and the Rani.

Delta and the Bannermen, Paradise Towers, and Dragonfire are all absolute comfykino.



Yeah you're quite based aren't you





The Curse of Fenric

Ghost Light

The Greatest Show in the Galaxy


Remembrance of the Daleks



Paradise Towers


Delta and the Bannermen


Silver Nemesis


Time and the Rani

S26 > S25 > S24



Swap Dragonfire and Nemesis and I agree


7 had an insane run, so crazy he got cancelled


At least he didn't get #cancelled



Dragonfire's shortcomings in some shoddy sets (mainly the ice tunnels) is made up for handily by its great score, costumes and a fairly memorable villain. The Dragon itself is great.


I was reading the McCoy/McGann "In Their Own Words" book yesterday and either Cartmel or Aaronovitch mentioned that from 1983 onwards the BBC liked to leave the possibility of making another series until almost the last minute because they weren't sure if it was worth it or not. Imagine another timeline where Dragonfire or Greatest Show is the last classic Who story. I also read that they were about 10 minutes away from canceling Greatest Show outright after the asbestos scare at the BBC before one of the staff said that they could just not film it in a studio.



What'd you think of the Name of the Doctor Dragonfire scene?

Greatest Show is absolutely GOAT but the thought of no S26 is scarier than Night Thoughts!



As someone who knows about 7's era and knows that there are probably better examples to use to give people a visual of Clara helping 7 in some way, the fact that the literal cliffhanger from Dragonfire is used as an exemplary section to show NewWho fans Clara interacting with his era is fairly frustrating as it just makes him look ridiculous. The novel of Dragonfire follows the original intent of the cliffhanger with 7 trying to bypass an icefall and misjudging how deep the chasm is.

Is Ravenous 4 the most obvious cry of "We've run out of ideas" from Big Finish in ages?



It looks really, really bad since it comes across as bottom scraps after a fucking River Song set. And putting so much shit together you just know it will be like The Light at the End and rushed spectacle that's not actually particularly interesting (i.e. you could tell a legit interesting strong story about Roberts Master and McGann meeting again but when it's just one among ~10 gimmicks in a boxset, you know there won't be any real meat to it).



I gave up on the 8 boxsets after DC1. Is there some sort of arc for Ravenous or is it just random shit thrown together?


If 8's next thing after Ravenous is another 4x4 16-story boxset series interconnected by some lame Time Lord-adjacent villain, it'll be an absolute joke.



Ravenous 4 is going to be comprised of -

>The culmination of Ravenous 1, 2 and 3

>8, Helen and Liv VS not only The Eleven (and probably The Nine or The Twelve) but FOUR variations of The Master AND The Ravenous

>a suitable payoff for the mystery surrounding The Ravenous

>a constricted 4 part narrative with 2 of those parts being the same story

>the supposed farewell to either Liv, Helen or both (if we're fucking lucky)

>a setup for future boxsets

>timeline fuckery to make sure 8 forgets about meeting Missy and Jacobi

All of that in 4 hours. Everything's obviously gonna go to plan. Everything. EVERYTHING.



I forgot to include "and the whole thing's written by the dreamteam of Dorney/Fitton"



I disagree

you're wrong

capaldi was a fantastic doctor


File: 348e06a0dcc7689⋯.png (885.7 KB, 898x950, 449:475, joker.png)


Even if it wasn't the same fucking bland Fitton/Dorney team we always get doing this and was someone GOAT like Shearman or Hall, or even just someone like Lidster, or even Platt, I don't think there'd be any way to make it kino because it's so fucking busy and clumped together. Especially in audio where it's hard to do lots of things running at once, focused stories work way better. The only clusterfuck/tonnes-of-shit audio I can even think of that was brilliant is Death in the Family and that's because all that arc had been slowly and meticulously set up for years, and because Hall is fucking incredible. How can you get a Chimes of Midnight tier story if you have a trillion plot things you need to work through? I don't think even the TV show gets this busy, I guess the closest equivalent is the S4 finale? Eughr it's all so tiresome…I wish 8 was just off doing looser more standalone stories again, and wasn't all tied down with Time Lord shit.


I just remembered Doom Coalition 4 basically wasn't even an ending and Ravenous 1 had to be the actual conclusion to that story, so there's a chance they'll pull that same stunt again and this won't even conclude the Ravenous story at all.



God, DC was an absolute slog in places. At least Big Finish is utilizing Andrew Smith and Marc Platt well with the First Doctor stuff.


Reminder that we're getting ANOTHER 8 boxset in July with a Briggs written Dalek story. **There's also a fair amount of interest in The Fendahl, so they're probably gonna be appearing at some point soon in the Main Range.""



Thoughts on Tom having done more audio seasons than TV seasons?



I can't even think of a single Tom audio that I enjoyed. Need I say more?

When River Met Mao



I'm the complete opposite, choosing a widely derided and hilariously naff moment to transform into part of some epic lore montage (with only classic viewers getting the joke) made me absurdly happy. I feel certain Moffat picked that one out himself. The message is that even the silly bits of Who deserve love.



That's a fair reading



i haven't heard any 8th doctor since dark eyes and i just don't want to

why is it that he's just become the epic new who teamup box set doctor, will they ever just show some restraint and give him some low key material?



Nope. Dark Eyes is a good stopping point too, that had finality and was good. He's a cashcow I presume, and Night of the Doctor bolstered him a lot.

Are you excited for the Morbius?



very much so

As someone who really didn't like River on TV (apart from in S4 and Husbands), I've been adoring her audios. I just listened to the first story in the third set, and only the very first of her stories has been bad to me, although every other story being "she meet the docta but then he forget" can be a bit annoying.



"OK guys, we need a new boxset, what do you have?"

"What about… *shuffles cards* the Eighth Doctor fighting *shuffles cards* the Eleven, but then he meets… *shuffles cards* four Masters!"



> four Masters!"



but not the bald one


As someone who really didn't like Broken Mirrors in threads (apart from when he deleted the wiki) I've been adoring him in the podcast. I just listened to the third Mirrors ending in the year's first podcast, and only the very first 50 minutes of his monologue has been bad to me, although every other minute being "whale sounds" can be a bit annoying.


Are the BF 1DAs any good? I absolutely hate the idea of them showing pre-Delgado Masters and 1 or 2 meeting the Master, but I've heard that they're good.



Bradlley's are not canon



The pure historicals are fantastic and they don't feel like they're out of place at all. The First Master stuff can get in the bin, though.



The Master is absolutely terrible in them. The other stories are good. One (story) is outright great.



I know but it still annoys me that they would have even a non-canon first Doctor meet the mustard

I feel so strongly that a zygon version of this should exist that I dreamt of it.



This first story has been so comfy until the Master showed up



Does the Zygon replace the cow or the human in this scenario?

Zygon would be the cow.


I should clarify this dream scenario. I dreamt someone has produced this image on /who/ and I was a bit disappointed when I woke and it wasn't. I'm not having cow-furry-zygon wet dreams, yet.

The Blind Banker<Study in Pink<The Great Game<The Empty Hearse<Hounds of the Baskerville<The Abominable Bride<The Final Problem<The Reichenbach Fall<Scandal in Belgravia<The Sign of Three<His Last Vow<The Lying Detective

HLV and TLD are basically tied though.



all the solo Moffat episodes > all the rest



What about The Six Thatchers?



Which ones were just written by Moffat? I know that Scandal in Belgravia was, and he actually said on Instagram that was the script he wrote he was most proud of



Ah shit, forgot about that one, probably in between Final Problem and Reichenbach Fall



Scandal in Belgravia>>>>>>>>>>>>>the rest



That's definitely one of the best, but the mind palace scene in His Last Vow and basically everything in Lying Detective puts them above it



A Study in Pink

A Scandal in Belgravia

His Last Vow

The Lying Detective

All are the best episodes of their respective series. I understand why Scandal is the one he loves most, it is probably the Moffatest thing ever written.


The Riechenbach Fall is the best sherlock episode and the show should have ended there, don't (You) me



the last 30 minutes are flawless but the hour before that is very hit or miss



Oh wow OK, that makes much more sense


It's certainly an amazing episode, and would have made a great ending, but almost every episode that comes later is a masterpiece as well and I wouldn't want to lose those great stories.

Doctor Who would much benefit from being on something like netflix and dropping it all at once tho



Explain how.



That would make discussion utterly atrocious




…fewer than 10. which was already fewer than 12, which was fewer than 13 AGHGHHHHH

less chib who is a good thing actually



i'm finding myself quite intrigued at what this could mean for /who/cares. if it's true. which it could be, since they were right about the sunday move and i think they knew about the reduced episode count for series 11

maybe it's a bit early for them to actually know this kind of stuff though



Underrated post



This tweet scares me



wait a minute though how would they air it on bbc one if it drops all at once on britbox

does that mean i can no longer watch it on iplayer


kind of leaning towards it being bullshit but having britbox in the uk is already a bullshitty enough idea and that's actually happening



I just feel as if that would let them make the series much more connected



The screencap is obviously fake, just google it



>that would let them make the series much more connected

Why does it need that?



OK let me rephrase that, Doctor Who would much benefit from being on a streaming service under a showrunner other than Chibnall



No it wouldn't

There was literally just an interesting discussion about Big Finish in this very thread.


>people arguing about whether a series was good or bad is the only type of discussion possible



There are things I like. The interest in diversifying both in front of and behind the camera is well intentioned, and responsible for two of the best episodes of the series. And he's made a lot of choices that I would have made in the same position, such as a female doctor, an increased focus on historicals, and the gimmick where every episode also has an educational component. If it wasn't for the abdication of character development and story arcs, and for the general lack of quality in his writing, and for the slapdash production quality in general leading to a gap year right after a recruitment year, I'd probably like Series 11.



Immigrant & Hunter




Ah, OK. I hardly go on here anymore, thanks.


>If it wasn't for everything in front of the camera being terrible, I would like it!



Why are you so attached to the idea that arguing about whether S11 is good or not is the only type of discussion? There's literally other discussions in this very thread.



I think he meant that there's no real discussion about the merits of series 11 in general, rather than just dunking on it 24/7 with the occasional "But demons was good".


Oh, I like plenty of things going on in front of the camera. I even like the concept of the TARDIS, though I don't think it worked as a set until Resolution. It's better to say "If it wasn't for Christopher Theodore Chibnall, I would like it!"



What >>231939 said.

Also I gotta be honest I agree with you about the TARDIS, I feel like if you were actually in the set it would look great, but the way they shoot it is always awkward. It's also kinda funny that 13 has, in my opinion, the best TARDIS exterior.



Why is concertedly trying to arbitrarily raise merits of S11 out of nowhere valuable at all though? /who/ talks about things every day and S11 isn't owed some critical reappraisal for "discussion". We literally just a /who/ser writing 13000 words on Series 11 this week in an essay; thoughts haven't dried up.



I mean if you remember to summer of 2017, there were people discussing S10 and there were actual discussions back and forth. Whatever though fam, I don't see why you're on my ass so much. S11 bad



S10 had plenty to talk about, Moffat's run was always doing all sorts of things. S11 is insanely shallow. That's why it's so difficult to talk about. The fact 13000 words could even be generated on the finale at all is bizarre and I suspect only because of how sharp that whoser is and how excruciatingly thorough they got with working through the episode. We could talk until the cows come home about Hell Bent any day of the week but there simply is so little to talk about with S11.



Are reading the VNAs necessary to read the EDAs? I'm planning on reading them all eventually anyway, I was just wondering because I've really been loving 8 lately



Not at all



>Are reading the VNAs necessary to read the EDAs?

No, the EDAs were explicitly conceived as a reaction against the VNAs. Virgin had the license taken away from them after the TV Movie because the BBC wanted a more sanitised range.




OK, thanks. It'll probably be a bit before I get to them though because I wanna finish 7's era first.

The EDAs aren't really canon anymore though right? Or, as non canon as anything else anyhow, and if they are, when do they land in relation to 8's audios and comics?



How do you mean reaction against?

I know that the show has no real canon, mainly I was wondering if apart from Company of Friends if they relate at all to the comics or audios



As in the BBC looked at the VNAs and were like "we don't want that".

Right, thanks. And I suppose there's always "le timewars messed up timline". I am really looking forward to reading them though, I've loved everything I've heard about them



How was he in the Predator?

I'm really hesitant to watch Peele's Twilight Zone because I really don't want it to be bad but I feel it will be





So what happened with the five year plan



Chibnall never said it, it was something said by someone who had worked with him.



Seems pretty simple to me.

2018: Recruitment year

2019: Decruitment year

2020: Amusement year

2021: Accusement year

2022: Excusement year



You might be thinking of the five year evergreen strategy built around a commitment to a solid content pipeline.

It's out the fucking window is where it is


Recruiting us one year then decruiting us the next; it's like he gets off on being withholding.



>8 comics were bad

When did this opinion start happening? The DWM comics were great. The Flood ranks better than 90% of the televised Cybermen stories. Is it because of the new series comics? Admittedly I havent read them yet.



>I'm really hesitant to watch Peele's Twilight Zone because I really don't want it to be bad but I feel it will be

Most non-Serling attempts have been bad.


EDAs >>> 8 Main Range audios >>> 8 comics >>> 8 boxsets

>The Zygon Who Fell to Earth (audio) references The Bodysnatchers (EDA).

>Sam is in a list of the Doctor’s old companions in Minuet in Hell (audio). Many people think this was retconned with Samson, but that doesn’t actually work because of the mind wipe in Terror Firma

>A Company of Friends has not only Fitz but also the Doctor mentioning Compassion and Trix.

>Romana's whole Imperiatrix phase in the Gallifrey audios is 100% based on how she’s portrayed in The Shadows of Avalon (EDA).

>Zagreus (audio) tries to show the EDAs in a different universe but what they see doesn’t even match what happened in Adventuress of Henrietta Street (novel).

>The Tomorrow Windows (novel) even shows something that looks like Storm Warning (audio) in the Doctor’s future.

>The Adventures of the Diogenes Damsel (Benny audio) mentions Faction Paradox.



>Zagreus (audio) tries to show the EDAs in a different universe

reminder that moff considers TDF the end of his tenure and so should you



it's funny that he'd also put villengard in twice upon a time



Petty… Meh.

It was clear by Zagreus that everyone had figured out Gary Russell was a shit writer, so the whole bullshit that came out of it as Gary tried to make his characters and canon untouchable was dumb as shit-him killing off Evelyn in Real Time and the whole Zagreus thing was a big middle finger for his attempts to weld all of Doctor Who together(the comics being welded into the placebo effect novel, of which the range was welded into a reference in minuet in hell…)

In truth, the whole point of the story is that Gary Russell is kinda shit as a writer. He's a great producer though. In your rankings neo, id put another level down below the bottom for "anything by gary russell"



I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand times. Doom Coalition should lead straight into the Time War boxsets and Big Finish should start adapting the Lethbridge-Stewart series


>I wish 8 was just off doing looser more standalone stories again, and wasn't all tied down with Time Lord shit.

— Justin Richards, 1999


I agree 100%, but it's almost shocking to realize I actually prefer BBC Audio to Big Finish. The version of myself from 5 years ago wouldn't have believed it. Bizarre.


Odds that raised prices sink Big Finish's sales to the point that they're forced to be good?



So many examples of Doctor Who/adjactent writers taking any chance to shit on other Doctor Who/adjacent media. It happens in Zagreus (contra EDAs); it happens in the VNAs and Eight comics (contra John and Gillian); it happens in Faction Paradox (contra RTD Who). Each and every time comes across as undeniably pathetic.

But then again, if you or I got the chance to authoritatively smack-down Chibnall Who…



I'm by no means the expert, but while anyone can definitely see the effect you're talking about, I'm not sure it was 100% intentional.

There's definitely a significant shift in tone from Virgin to BBC Books. But it was a really weird situation. Due to its overseas production and long gestation, the TV Movie was utterly disconnected from all the (extremely interesting and groundbreaking) developments in Doctor Who that had been happening in the Virgin Books. You like writing the Doctor as a master schemer? Well, Eight is scatterbrained as hell. The Doctor is asexual, and in fact, so are all Time Lords? Eight just snogged his companion. You built up this huge mysterious lore about Looms and the Other? The Doctor's mom was a human, fuck you. It's rather telling that the only Virgin book with 8 was more-or-less explicitly a "fuck you" to the TV Movie.

The EDAs' first editor didn't really have any background knowledge of the series (hence thinking The Eight Doctors was a good choice for the range debut) so it's really not clear to me that she had any specific plans for how to differ from the VNAs. Pretty much all of the EDA and PDA writers were pulled straight from Virgin. I think the difference in tone comes down to the way that the TV Movie, and its (albeit vague) characterisation of the Eighth Doctor, shook up the landscape of what was going on in Who at the time.

All that aside, I'd be really curious to see a source for Virgin's license loss being due to sanitation or whatever. It's totally possible, but I'd always heard it explained as the BBC just trying to cash in on the obviously-successful Doctor Who novel market and fucking over Virgin in the process (just as they did to BBV with Big Finish and BBC Audio).


The EDAs benefit from general background knowledge of the VNAs from a "history of Who" perspective. But they're 100% stand-alone from a "enjoying and understanding the stories" perspective. Be sure to skip The Eight Doctors unless you hate yourself!

Moreso than music, moreso than video, even moreso than photography or portraiture, writing is an intensely solitary act, one of creation, of production, done on one's own (for the most part), drawing on one's experiences, thoughts, fantasies… it's masturbatory. And the fact we show it off to other people and get a thrill from it is therefore exhibitionism.

I played the most common path of all.

(I haven't played yet. Been busy in RL.)



Yeah. I loved use of music both serious and comedy and the sound design in general. the way Lupita croaks her lines in the meeting scene is woah

Have you seen the film Straight Outta Compton Storm? also that scene was apparently first set to Roxanne by The Police. works great with Fuck the Police though, especially with the lyrical connections


The music was definitely one of the step ups from Get Out, and I loved the music in Get Out.

No, missed that somehow. I'm not really into biopics. Heard some good stuff about it though.

Sadly, anon, most human beings in the world have not played the /who/ Cares Resolution. Honestly, I suspect most human beings on earth haven't even seen Doctor Who. We're in a minority of a minority of a minority, negapathers even moreso.


I had no idea the wiki had been migrated like that. It's good to see that some of my stuff's still up. And here I was thinking to dig it out of the old file sent after the deletion and to repost it (after some rewriting, Christ I was awful) on a blog of my own…

Oh it's not some great biopic, although it's a bit of fun, just an excuse to hear some of their music.

Also lmao at what you linked.

I saw the twist coming very early on but thought it was good for the story yeah, what about you?


The Happy Ending is my personal favourite ending


I wonder if Deadlocked has anything else up his sleeves 😎



yeah, same. it was pretty obvious thing to do but i read some opinions about it being unnecessary, and honestly i couldnt disagree more



yeah wtf it was super important, you need it to show the Tethered aren't dumb evil animals or anything, they're just as human if they're raised as well as humans are. also, I've always wanted Dr Who to do a similar twist but with the Doctor and the Master regenerating at the same time and us mixing up who was who afterwards…iirc some fanseries or something wanted to do that


How long will gig be a cyberman?



>I've always wanted Dr Who to do a similar twist but with the Doctor and the Master regenerating at the same time and us mixing up who was who afterwards

Whoa I'm not the only person to have had this idea! I always thought it would be so cool if there was a scene between the Doctor and the Master and it was ambiguous which one was which.

In fact, I'd say that between Chris Chibnall's soulful empathy and wit, and Jodie Whittaker's boundless energy and charm, Doctor Who's latest regeneration is a welcome return to form that feels fresh well into the show's 55-year tenure!



Similarly, I really wanted this to happen between 12 and 1 in TUAT, iirc I don't think I've ever mentioned that before.




Can anyone fill me in on the wiki? Did it really get deleted due to "violating posting policy" or whatever? If so, don't we risk losing it again?



The wiki is privately hosted on servers belonging to a trustworthy person now. It is not hosted on a big service like Wikia; it is running on a free and open source software and hosted on a reliable person's servers. Yes it got deleted due to those sorts of shenanigans, and it had been beset by all sorts of dramas for a while before that too. We don't really risk losing it because we've even taken it off Google indexing now; if you're not a /who/ser, then you won't find/know about the wiki. And even if you did, it's not being hosted or ran by someone one can complain to.



Thanks for that info, that's pretty comprehensive.


All things considered, I think S11 is actually the best series. Sure it may not reach the quality of the best Moffat episodes, but nothing about it is offensively bad either. It’s the most consistently good series, and for that it is ultimately the best overall series of nuwho.

Hey Immigrant!!! It's been too long! How've you been? Hope the irl busy-ness has all been good busy-ness.

I'm … well, saying "coming around to" might be overselling it, and I can't deny my boredom wrt the overall premise, but I've come to respect what Andy FA has achieved at Candy Jar. He's like a modern David J Howe (who sustained the (underrated) Time Hunter series long past its expected due date) in how persistently he's marketed the LS and Lucy Wilson series. The thing that made me critical in the first place was how he treated Jimbo… but honestly, there's nothing wrong with wanting to stick to a clear vision for your series and turning away those who can't meet it.

Although I'll never understand how dream stories are too wild while the Brig literally getting raped is a-ok.

To be expected sadly. You won't see Vienna or Graceless in there either. I think the BBC forces them to drive a hard line between their DW and non-DW properties, hence "Worlds of Dr Who" vs "Worlds of Big Finish" and the "New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield" reboot/reset/thing.

The BF Iris audios are mediocre at best anyway. But it is a shame that it means they can't put eg the old Benny audios in the same section as her newer stuff.

OK I finished The Comedian, and it started out pretty crappy but it was actually really good at the end. My only problem is that I feel like the creepiness of the original is partly due to the black and white, obviously that was what all its contemporaries were like as well, but viewing it now it just really makes something feel off. Peele is an interesting choice for narrator, but because of Key and Peele I always feel like there's a punchline coming whenever he says something creepy. Oh, and that scene where creepy tracy morgan vapes. It's impossible to make vaping creepy, just give him a cigarette



I really liked the final monologue scene, I feel like it's where it really clicked, but overall it's just too long and not creepy.


so I just need to watch it on 1.5x speed with my monitor set to black and white then?

Even if the parliament agreed on something, would the EU let them do it? How likely is it they just say “lol fuck off” and a no deal brexit happens in 1.5 weeks anyway?



it is odd that it's been 4 years since the new who license and there's still not been a classic/10th doctor story

showing an odd amount of restraint there desu

they might as well do it, it'd at least be fun and shit rather than the usual boring and shit



I reckon they'd love to do one but the chief issue is scheduling - Tennant likely isn't available for long periods at a time, and they have to juggle producing stuff that Ten fans actually want with that limited time (so, adventures with him and his companions) versus matching him up with other actors' availability. I hope they wrangle it eventually.



the EU don't want to sever political ties with the UK (even if the UK want to piss off the EU) however, some of the options that have been discussed aren't really options. (for instance the Norwegian government said they would veto a Norway style deal anyway)

Now that we've passed the original deadline either the EU or the UK can trigger no deal if they want, even right now lmao

nilso started a D club


Does anyone have a link for the first volume of the Shit Trips stories? I had something in there but never grabbed a copy of it and I no longer have the original file.

I also have a question: A post on the main board here states this board is supposed to be SFW and "Bigotry is not tolerated". Does that mean the wiki is going to be edited to remove all such stuff, or is the wiki at this point just sort of a legacy thing we're keeping up just for fun?



Litterally what every Doctor would have said, and had actually said for some of them, eg 6, 7, 12, 4 (with the daleks) and others



>April 1st

Well done, Gig. Now we can't know for sure if all of this is serious or complete irony.


When is /who/ plays coming out?



>Bigotry is not tolerated

<Anti-het posting actually is

/doctorwho/ has worst morals than 13

and most likely some replies to this post will prove my point


What comes first, the group identity or the individual?


How do we fix The Curse of the Black Spot? Is it salvageable?



I never said it was better here, I was just asking about the use of phrase itself, ha ha. Trying to test it, I guess?



Maybe the first half of it's OK, I mean, it has pirates and all. Then the third 25% goes sort of flat, then the end in the Tardis ruins it completely. I mean it can be read as a foreshadowing for Rory's arc, but… it's still boring and flat.



What prompts the question? I don't think it was overall bad because of the series it was in, it's just bad in and of itself.



That can make some sense, although S6 had a lot of problems as I recall. They had just uncovered some grand conspiracy and then just go larking off to play pirate for a few minutes. But that's how the show usually goes, they don't always carry things through like a serialized show or anything; they more sort of play at it rather than seriously committing to it.

But it's been a long time since I've last watched them, much less in sequence, so my memory of it's probably not to be trusted, not that that will stop me saying it's a bad episode. It's not like it's become a classic or anything.



a bigger ship




And more pirates, that was a seriously small crew.



I like how the second response is a Dalek. I imagine everything they tweet gets a Dalek somewhere within the first five responses. They must be so sick of Daleks by now - much like us.



Yes. Although, they couldn't seem to keep track of even that tiny crew. Didn't one of the guys just go missing in the middle of the episode?



That's the story I remember hearing everyone bitch about at the time, yeah. I think he disappears for a long stretch then sort of shows up in the background again somewhere, or just outright is never seen again somehow.



It was an early sign that the wheels were starting to fall off the Moffatmobile.


So I haven't rewatched Capaldi's last season since it was broadcast, and I only watched each one once. I remember that terrible three-parter in the middle, something about Victorian London ice, the cool original Cybermen story sort of failing to land after some good moments, and then kind of enjoying the Missy/Master bits. What did you guys think about it? Remind me how terrible it was.



The Pilot - 6/10

Smile - 5/10

Thin Ice - 6/10

Knock Knock - 7/10

Oxygen - 7/10

Extremis - 8/10

Pyramid at the End of the World - 6/10

The Lie of the Land - 5/10

Empress of Mars - 6/10

The Eaters of Light - 4/10

World Enough and Time - 9/10

The Doctor Falls - 9/10

Twice Upon a Time - 7/10

85/130 = 6.5/10 which doesn't seem that fair



I play fast and loose with the rules, sue me.



I don't even remember those by title, although that does spark my memory some. Maybe 6.5 isn't too unfair if they were that unmemorable.



So how would you rate the series? It did seem to me that there was a certain chemistry running that sort of was lost in separate parts. At least I think so, it was a nice change to get past Clara finally, even though I liked her a lot on the show.



Phones are awful for that, yeah.


S10 is hit and miss, has long streaks of mediocrity or worse but absolutely nailed the ending


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

Series 10 didn't have much at all to prove, which is why it lacks the focused fire of the most cohesive and strong series of NewWho (1, 8, 9, and apparently 5) but it is still leagues above so much of the show, mostly by sheer virtue of the skill and talent of those involved, namely the Moffat/Minchin/Capaldi/Gold/various-talented-directors dream team. On that point of directors it's worth noting Moff and Minchin went out of their way to mix it up for series 10 and hire some outside choices that hadn't worked on the show before; Lawrence Gough and Bill Anderson helming the first four episodes of the series. Gough in particular noticeably brought a new flavour, which very much tied into the initial soft reboot approach the series was marketed with. If we just look at The Pilot on its lonesome, it's worth examining a scene Moffat had extensive visual directions for on the script end, and Gough had extensive muster to meet and iterate on them on his end. (linked video) I'm using this as a microcosm of series 10 as a whole because it exemplifies what the series really is - extremely talented people doing work so well that it looks almost effortless, even though they're past the logical point of conclusion where they hit their highest points and made their grandest creative statements through the show (series 9).

If we look at Moffat's script for The Pilot, we see

>Now zooming out from the freeze frame, to see every other frame around it, like strips of film. Out and out, until we can see the entire episode as a grid of tiny rectangles.

If we look at an interview with Gough, we get

>It was an interesting pressure. I try and seek out projects that give me pressure. It was a challenge, and I wanted that. I had a few thoughts in my own head about how I wanted to approach and to try and mix it up a little bit if I could, particular with performance and character. I was pretty heavy on giving feedback on script, as much as I could do.

(I could easily take a dig here at the stark difference with Chibnall and his muse Jamie Childs, but it's so self evident if you watch any Childs series 11 interview, so I'll leave it)

Also worthy of note is that Gough directed the Friend From The Future minisode a year in advance of directing The Pilot, which he credits for giving him time to mull over how Peter and Pearl interacted and how he could improve and sharpen their chemistry and relationship in the actual episode. In particular he fixated upon wanting her TARDIS reveal moment to be more attuned to her mindset as it happened, and not just using any of the visual language Classic and New Who had established for such moments:

>What I thought was there was a visual flair to the reveals that’d not been done, and I came up with the idea of doing it on a wire cam. I found out the diameters of the TARDIS and worked out the widest point, and we rigged a steel cable from outside the front door of the TARDIS – we took out a pane of glass that you don’t see – and put it right into the rafters outside the build. We were able to travel the camera the maximum diameter of the TARDIS using an extremely wide lens. You’re probably looking at maybe between 20 and 30 metres. It took quite a time, and then we had to digitally remove the cable, of course, because it was in shot. But it worked. And we looked at the grid of the way the lights work in the TARDIS and we played with those. Everything is controlled and on separate circuits, so you can control when it comes on – you probably know all this! – and the way the lights come on. The rest was in the grade, when we held back on the darkness as far as possible, so it looked like we were pulling back, and then the reveal.


Also of note is the fact he actually came up in the acting world originally, which lends itself to an approach he describes that's quite different from how workmanlike/more-coverage TV directors usually operate:

>I come back in my work to studying as an actor. Allowing the actor to breathe in the frame and not steering the audience for every beat. Not doing tons of coverage, but doing the coverage for the scene, and allowing the blocking to be right. Not just doing blanket coverage and making it in the edit. What’s the essence of the scene? What’s this scene about? How do we get Pearl to move around the TARDIS for the first time and get the coverage you need to move the story beats forward?

Beyond those quotes illustrating his approach, I think you'll find if you rewatch the episode and pay particular attention to the visuals it would stand out to you how much of the story is communicated visually (a rarity for Who). This kind of care simply isn't in the vast, vast majority of the show. The composition of the opening shot in 12's study, what it says about 12's new status quo, and how he uses that framing as a kind of counterpoint as Bill's entrance sees it shift and lose its symmetry. The way Heather's temptation to Bill through promise of the liberation of a Doctor-esque life literally comes to emulate the intro of the show. But the real jewel of the episode is the montage of vid related. The way it literalises the metaphor of the monologue in cinematic language is gorgeous, and bizarrely visually-minded for Doctor Who. It explictly moves out of the literal and actually visually positions the frames of the episode as distinct units, reinforcing the point 12 is making about the passage of time. This is experimental and novel in a way directors just simply aren't for Doctor Who, and the rare other cases where it happens (like Talalay bringing the Heaven Sent script to life through expressionism and doing things like intentionally making the shadows unnatural/"wrong" to accentuate the artificial horror of the confession dial) are remarked upon precisely because the actual mindfulness in making the visuals not just bring the script to television, but actively make television/cinema out of it, transcend the confines of the page and tell the story with visuals instead of visually telling the story, it's noteworthy in how well it works. "Time is a structure relative to ourselves, time is the space made by our lives where we stand together forever, time and relative dimension in space, it means life," says 12 in a montage applying that concept of temporal abstraction to how that speech is being communicated in the episode. This just isn't the stuff you see in most episodes of the show.

Anyways, that's the first episode of series 10.


If we look at the series itself in broader terms we get the interesting point of how not just the marketing but even the ratings of the series tie into the point the series (inadvertently…or perhaps subconciously) made about relationships with the past. Look how the finale vaguely superficially resembling S8's ("the Master controls an army of Cybermen") tying in with how the S10 finale hinges off the whole "can't escape your past, trapped in self-destructive cycles of your past, past repeating itself" stuff (Missy trying to be good unlike Simmaster, Simmaster killing Missy, endpoint of several races being the Cybermen, yet another companion death, yet another regeneration, 12 ultimately deciding "fuck all the repetition, I don't want to experience the past again anymore, no more life for me").

It's fascinating how it turned out in that s10 is ultimately a very cobbled-together series, Moff's favour for Chibnall, keeping the show on-air while Broadchurch S3 was done, after Moff had done what he planned as his final series (S9), his final statement on the show (Hell Bent), then a comfy sendoff when the Christmas slot needed filling (Husbands). Moff and all the press were drilling on the "soft reboot, The Pilot is the new jumping-on point, this is the perfect series to get someone into the show!" line, like Moff's last present to Doctor Who was a neat entry-level standalone series. That's a good idea. And it starts off like that, The Pilot does it really well, and the next few eps kinda continue that angle. But…cobbled-together. So S10 being kind of aimless and rudderless makes sense. He goes and does a few things he had a few ideas he's had over the years, or that he knows are good and just hadn't done yet (a companion like Bill, multi-Master special, Mondasian Cybermen, etc.).

There's a definite point where you can feel the "new entry-level series!" idea slide off and it devolves into continuity-heavy Capaldi era-ness again. The way that jars is so interesting. Missy's arc, Simm, the Cybermen and everything, it's great but it feels really separate to "standalone entry-level series!" idea. What's funny is, well, the series might have felt more coherent if it had committed more to the Missy stuff and made it a bigger focus from the start, instead of doing the Vault tease for half the series, that would have been good. Or if it just concentrated on being a comfy entry-level series with Bill hijinks. But at first, way back in 2017 I didn't feel the two approaches were melded in a very coherent way. I always thought the "randomly start Missy's turn good arc" actually works, partially because of the breezy confidence and effectiveness with which Moffat substitutes narratives, but I questioned the way the directions of the series jutted against each other.

However, whether intentional or not (not), the finale actually kind of weaponises that as a story point. From "standalone series, the new Eleventh Hour, jump on!" to fucking Mondasian Cybermen, Simmaster, ALPHA CENTURAI. Likewise, Missy tries to escape her past, but the finale explores how you can't just escape and undo the past. For all the self-improvement Missy might do, she can't undo the excesses of Simm, and for all the continuity-shedding Who might do, it can't really shake off its history in a sense. Starting off as "dive in here, no continuity required" and yet ending in a huge fanwank clusterfuck actually works for the finale as like a "you cant escape your past" thing a la Simm killing Gomez worked in an odd way imo. Not as neat an "introductory" series idea as S1, but certainly an interesting idea for a Doctor Who series, whether intended or not. Do you ever see Chibnall unintentionally imbuing a series with that kind of metalevel exploration of theme?


Anyway of course, Missy did transcend Simm in a way, but that wasn't escaping her past, that was accepting it and moving past it holistically. So too did the show complete its bug self rumination, right to the point of 12 meeting 1, and then TUAT completely bungled all that story potential but TUAT isn't series 10 and that's another story.

Zooming back in on the micro, Smile is quite possibly one of the best directed episodes of the show, and certainly one of the greatest uses of location filming. Thin Ice is incredibly strong character-wise and brims with dialogue so keyed into what the cast and characters can make work best that it feels and looks completely effortless (Dollard often works this way, to her unfortunate discredit). Knock Knock is abysmal in its failure to meld any of its various half-baked tones and ideas. Oxygen is the kind of episode that proves the workability of Doctor Who formula over 50 years into its use; the way Mathieson meshes theme with plot is the sort of thing Big Finish embarrasses itself in trying to act like it can do. Extremis is a tour de force and arguably the most worthwhile part of the entire series 10 experiment, as it extrapolates out Moffat's various simulationist urges into a story punctuating the entire ethos with which he wrote the Doctor, the entire way he redefined the character as an in-character performance as opposed to nature. Pyramid has some good ideas by way of its writer but is ultimately an adrift mess. Lie of the Land is Whithouse at his worst, and that really is quite bad. Empress of Mars is a competent but forgettable Gatiss-running-on-fumes episode, but the absurdity of its ending is an appealing bit of flavour we simply won't get in the show anymore. So too does The Eaters of Light fumble in tone, but it bursts with a singular writerly vision that multiple people (including the writer) failed to effectively realise - but there was something there in the first place. The finale is the apotheosis of what can be accomplished in Doctor Who; a perfect melding where character, theme, and plot all interlink as firmly as possible, where each element of the story works as a fractal, micro to the macro, where every single person involved is fyring on all cylinders and going above and beyond to make the story being told work on the highest level possible. This is what we get in a B-side series made purely because Chibnall didn't take the show over when expected. I certainly don't regard it with disaffection. I regard it with wonderment that that's what we got out of everyone running on fumes.

How've you been Cloister?






Neo, make me cum. You always do…



s10 as a whole indeed has a very experimental flavour. Extremis, the pope, making the Doctor blind for several episodes, a loose trilogy in mid-season, voluntary exile on Earth, two masters, a comic sidekick, Cybermen deep lore, none of this is original but putting all of it in a single series definitely felt like a final all-in from Moffat & the the crew. Yet precisely because of that, s11 is more than other series flawed with the biggest regular problem of Moffat : pay-off pacing. There was just too many ideas in there for all of them to be attended and resolved as they deserved.

>Missy did transcend Simm in a way, but that wasn't escaping her past, that was accepting it and moving past it holistically. So too did the show complete its bug self rumination, right to the point of 12 meeting 1, and then TUAT completely bungled all that story potential

On the contrary, I think that's precisely what TUAT is about, and I think Moffat must have felt TDF was a too big clusterfuck of a story to properly demonstrate that point. So TDF's last part is more a final stance on the Doctor's applied morals in situ. The Missy/Master interaction is thus some sort of rehearsal of TUAT, with the Doctor acting as a moral beacon. This is used to prove than the Doctor's biggest problem isn't about his morals anymore (the Time War culpability is definitely over). He (and the show) is now perfectly able to handle extreme situations without resent. So to make the point you've written, which goes way beyond than just morals, TUAT is then moving to a much more metaphorical and psychological level, where action and huge stakes are not needed anymore. When 12 meets 1, he's far more disconcerted than Missy was because he don't have any higher beacon to refer to. He's not afraid of confronting his own morals, he's afraid of confronting his vision of his own life as a whole.

That's the general idea, but the TDF/TUAT transition from action-packed lore clusterfuck to intimate light comedy was rough, again. Up to the very end Moffat wasn't very good with global pacing.



Eh…Ok. Been having a bumpy one with thesenpaibut aside from that, good. How about you?



Ach, I'm sorry to hear that. I'm well; just returned from a short trip and settling back into the grind. So it goes.

I was reminiscing about our stream days the other day. Crazy how many years ago that was now!



Because of exactly this, I expect the current general negativity toward TUAT in critical fandom will reverse within a few years.


Im sure neo niki and gig have absolutely no valid reasons for hating twat and are just dumb vergies about #sixlines and will fix their opinions in a few years, thats defiantly whasgoing on

Yeah cuz Niki's famously super critical of TUAT? That's not what I mean at all, I just mean that time adds nuance and lets a story be considered from more perspectives. I myself can't stand TUAT but over the past several months I've heard a lot more new reasons to like it than new reasons to dislike it. It wouldn't be the first time fandom has switched positions on an episode (Sleep No More being the most relevant example).

Yeah, it was alright as I recall. Moffat was always enjoyable when he he was on his game.


Twice Upon really isn't bad, the only bad thing about it is the sexist 1 stuff, and that's hardly anything in the episode. I suppose that many of its haters are mad that it's not much of a story, but I view it as simply a epilogue to the Moffat era and the show as a whole and the regeneration is super comfy. Oh yeah, and the original cut was 105 minutes long, so /who/ nose all the kino that we're missing out on

that's the depth of anyone's criticism for the capaldi era desu. it's like they consider things like music, blocking, editing just extraneous factors that don't add up to their overall appreciation of it as a work of art

they'll get impressed by a fuckin time lapse of an alien sky though, that's enough to say 'wow this is the best looking doctor who series yet'

god i'm fucking pissed off, the pilot was so good



>However, whether intentional or not (not), the finale actually kind of weaponises that as a story point. From "standalone series, the new Eleventh Hour, jump on!" to fucking Mondasian Cybermen, Simmaster, ALPHA CENTURAI. Likewise, Missy tries to escape her past, but the finale explores how you can't just escape and undo the past. For all the self-improvement Missy might do, she can't undo the excesses of Simm, and for all the continuity-shedding Who might do, it can't really shake off its history in a sense. Starting off as "dive in here, no continuity required" and yet ending in a huge fanwank clusterfuck actually works for the finale as like a "you cant escape your past" thing a la Simm killing Gomez worked in an odd way imo. Not as neat an "introductory" series idea as S1, but certainly an interesting idea for a Doctor Who series, whether intended or not.

if you ever meet moffat i want you to gush at him about this kind of shit because i don't think he knows how just brilliant he really is



I didn't care much for it on first watch, but viewing it again I realized how brilliant it is. One of the best companion introductions



Or it's possible we're all just massive autists over analyzing his episodes. Still would want to see Moffat's reaction to Neo saying all this to him tho

It's really not that great though.



Well fuck! Maybe one of the Good Place eps can get it.



As in gaming or performances?



As I alluded to in the most recent response, some of the stuff there was just too memey to have as the fourth thing that comes up when you google my name. In general I'm trying to fragment/deintegrate my online accounts a little better, for branding etc.


Still nowhere near as bad as that Resolution trailer. That spoils only the first act of Endgame at most; they even CGI'd Captain America's uniform during the handshake because it was too potentially spoilery. No; the "Resolution" trailer is in a class of its own.



Just an April Fools joke, anon.

Explain what actually makes TUAT allegedly bad

File: 51f3570eda17ce2⋯.jpg (151.42 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, dream2.jpg)


It's just that it's a flat and plodding take on its concept. You can do a low-key episode without a baddie or much of a plot and have it be excellent (i.e. Listen), but TUAT just feels lacking in steam, and the Doctor interactions don't do enough to elevate it. It's got some kind of dull interpretations of the meaning of the series, that feel like a step back from the sophistication with which Moffat had treated it before. And I'm not the greatest fan of 12's regeneration scene with him just throwing himself around the TARDIS and ranting about children while The Shepherd's Boy plays, it doesn't feel like the right way for his character to go out.

The scene on the battlefield towards the end is really nice though. His farewell to Bill and Nardole feels like 12's true final scene.



just turn your brain off, not everything needs some deeper meaning to satiate the minds of english majors



just realised that i used the term "feels" in almost every sentence of this post

Basically what >>232305 says. It's a great little epilogue for the Moffat era. Nothing too deep, but it's fun with some emotion there.

real bad thread fronting r/gallifrey atm


Really interesting thread from Edward Russell, the former Brand Manager of Who, about how Capaldi affected his characterization in Series 8.




That's not what I'd call it, and we've discussed the same tweet on /who/ earlier.


🤔 why on earth would 12 start to act less spiky in the episode after KTM, which ends with a companion thoroughly BTFOing him for his shit attitude? it just makes no sense! capaldi must have improvised it.


I also find it a bit hard to believe that Moffat wasn't in on this idea of (re)playing Hartnell's arc as well. I mean "PCap" is wonderful himself, but there's no way Moffat was like cringing in obsequiousness before his actorly choices.



It's a completely ridiculous assertion, from a man with a noted grudge against Moffat, and even Redditors are eviscerating it for being nonsense.


"We had no idea why Capaldi started softening up after Kill the Moon" is the funniest fucking thing, I swear to god.


Why did the Doctor start acting sadder after Rose left? 🤔 I think Tennant must have improvised it.



A grudge against Moffat? Do tell.



completely fake trailer, even the title of the vid points out it's not legit, literally just clips from the Master mixed with some leaked set footage…

10 million views. fucking hell.


Edward Russell has always been a hack fraud right?

mildly interested in endgame but it turns out ive only watched like 7 films from MCU

what do

i dont want to catch up on all of this




guardians vol 2

guardians 1


iron man

infinity war

iron man 3


cap civil war

thor ragnarok

the avengers

cap winter soldier

cap 1


iron man 2

doctor strange

avengers age of ultron


thor the dark world

spider-man homecoming

ant man

ant man and the wasp

haven't seen incredible hulk, black panther or captain marvel



I'm no MCU expert but honestly, if you only wanted to be able to follow what's going on, I reckon you can pick up most of it from context without having seen all the films. From that list, if you also watched Civil War, Ragnarok, and then Infinity War, I think you'd be basically up to speed (at least for characters who look to be big deals in Endgame).



pretty good list (i.e. close to mine ;))))

i suspect you'd put panther and marvel in between good and great, judging by your taste. why'd you not see panther? i suspect the worst.


IM3+Winter Soldier+Ultron+Civil War+Ragnorak+Panther+Infinity War would catch you up on basically everything especially the key Endgame characters

if that's too much then just Civil War+Ragnorak+Infinity would do it yeah, although I suspect you'd like Black Panther







Civil War

Infinity War

Captain Marvel

Black Panther


Iron Man





Captain America 2

Avengers 1

Doctor Strange



Captain America 1

Thor 2

Spidey Homecoming

Iron Man 2

Incredible Hulk

[[[[[[Haven't seen]]]]]]

Antman and Wasp



>why'd you not see panther? i suspect the worst.

martin freeman

dunno desu. i want to watch it but i always just feel like i have better things to do. i'll put it on if it comes on netflix, just don't really care enough to seek it out myself. less inclined to watch captain marvel since that seems even more like it's just setup for endgame rather than a bespoke film. fuck i just wanna watch blade again.

i'm so so glad james gunn is doing vol 3 again



Cpt Marvel easily has one of the best plots of any of these movies imo, but the characterisation is unfortunately pitifully weak. Still it swerves nicely and the marketing hid a lot of the more interesting aspects of the film. Although it was verrrry much marketed as setup to Endgame the film absolutely isn't; that is just relegated to a postcredits scene really. I assume you know it's a (quite direct at times) GOTG 1 prequel?

Panther is a big ol fun techno-y romp with a stacked cast. Really has a great energy to it and it feels all energetic and shit in a way most of these movies don't. 3rd act is amusingly, bizarrely reminiscent of The Phantom Menace.

yeah so so so hype for Gunn. hope The Suicide Squad is kino too



>techno-y romp

i'm piqued

>3rd act is amusingly, bizarrely reminiscent of The Phantom Menace

i love the phantom menace


>mike cernovich tried to ruin gunn's career

>after a brief hiccup, gunn got his film back and is now playing BOTH sides of the capeshit game

How do you even backfire this badly



The climax is literally, literally an intercutting 4-sequence thing where each sequence is an environment similar to their TPM counterpart (i.e. big techno-y battle on a grassy field, air combat above that battle, meanwhile enhanced warriors fight in a techno industrial building nearby, etc.). It's so weirdly specific.



DChads always win baby 😎



>no Thor 3




Its there but listed as Ragnorak


Let's Thwack Jack




>Mixed race Jew

Has BF done anything regarding religion?



The Holy Terror

The Marian Conspiracy (contains a based dialogue between 6 and Queen Mary about heretics, 11 vs King James is somewhat similar but not as good)

Minuet in Hell (if you accept Satanism)

Faith Stealer (100% about religions)

The Council of Nicea (pretty obvious)

and certainly others I don't know of, but most probably not Islam nor Judaism, as those are still a bit too sensitive for BF usual entertainment



>needing to hear people slightly similar to you to feel normal


Listening to The Rapture. It's not quite what I expected from the cover although I should have read the blurb. Nice theme variation

This is the film that will finally radicalize incels.

We must institute a nation-wide couple's only policy the weeks that this film is in theaters to keep them from seeing it and possibly being radicalized. If any incel sees this movie, it could cause untold amounts of harm to society. I personally think it will cause them to take action against the good and normal people of society in violent ways and we cannot let this happen.

We, good, progressive human beings, must stand up to this movie. It is furthering the radicalization of young incels and empowering them to take further action against normal humans.



This is how incels actually believe non-incels think

What's happening with may talking to corbyn, is that likely going to reach a compromise that a majority can support (even if the majority comes from the opposition)?



I have no idea at this point. I think it'll either be no deal or no brexit in the end, because I have no idea what common ground anyone is going to come to.

At the risk of sounding like a tinfoil hat wearer, I think May just wants Corbyn's fingerprints all over brexit too, so that the public will blame both labour and the tories, not just the tories
