https://drive.google.com/file/d/1g2dNDnD3t3JYm7oMrLg7yFSp35nVxg8P/view?usp=sharing

STILL NEEDS:

- SOUNDTRACK. - I want suggestions for music choices to use throughout the episode. Doesn't necessarily have to be from Who, but probably nothing so ostentatious it distracts from the audio itself. This is the biggest next step IMO.

- I need to add more sound effects and environment sounds to help clarify what's going on.

- Cleanup of voice recordings and mixing.

I'd recommend just using some Briggs Finish music as the default soundtrack. Maybe the EDA music, to reflect /who/'s fixation on the wilderness years.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nP2WloeJtcE

There's plenty of good low-key electronic music in here that sounds distinctly Doctor Who-ish but isn't strongly melodic enough to become distracting. Mysterious, exciting, ominous - pretty much all you'd need.

It'd definitely be worth breaking from this if anyone can think of a specific piece of music (Doctor Who or elsewhere) that would match a given scene really well, or be funny when juxtaposed with Miles's writing, but I think this is broadly the way to go.

If you're looking for relatively easily sourced SFX this is a fantastic channel to use. It's got a lot of general Doctor Who ambience pieces alongside console room ambience, lasers and general 60's to 80's sound effects.

"It must be–"

"Why do you always say that 'it must be Christmas'?" asked Bill. They were in a cell, and she could smell the stink of unwashed walls around her.

The Doctor pulled out a sonic screwdriver from her pocket (wait, how'd he get that THERE?), and used it on the lock.

"It's always Christmas somewhere. It's always someone's last Christmas."

The Doctor stared off in the distance, as if lost in thought. Sometimes he did that, and he would whistle a tone underneath his breath. Then, he snapped out of it, and unlocked the door.

"Finally!" said Bill, and she quickly sneaked out.

Several soldiers with spears surrounded her. Raising her hands, she noted that all the soldiers were women.

"The Empereor's Furies. Their society believes that the warrior goddess blessed 12 women in every cycle with the power to defend the society. It's really just an odd genetic quirk in their body that gives them strength."

"So, like the Amazons in the Wonder Woman comics?" said Bill.

"Wonder Woman was a comic? I met her in my eighth life," said the Doctor.

Bill surveyed the soldiers. Seven toned, athletic women who could kick ass? And they would be tying her up and taking her prisoner?

"Must be Christm–"

I've watched the show since 2005 and I will admit I was not happy with a woman doctor. I feel it is a despite attempt to gain viewers and leaving older fans behind. However, In recent months I am really rooting for her. As long as we don't get into to driven story lines like rights and shiz. I don't mind really, but I watch Doctor Who for fun not to be a propaganda machine. Im fine with story's that fit as long as they don't try and push a narrative the entire season I'm willing to give it a chance. Personally my favorite doctor is Capaldi. Im hoping she gets a new outfit though. Dont, really like the one she is shown wearing now.

I'm kind of against the idea having the next Doctor be a female…and I wanna explain why. Before I trigger anyone and get called sexist by the title I want to explain why I am against the idea of having the next doctor be a female, first off is Missy, Missy's character was one I just didn't like and it was very annoying that Moffat decided to make her the Master's name only next incarnation and if this female doctor is written anything like Missy ? Then she would become my least favourite incarnation of the Doctor. Secondly I'm just worried about the direction of the show will take if the next Doctor is female, if the whole Chibnall wants to begin from scratch is true and if that includes the writing team as well, then I fear that the show would just devolve into pro feminist trash full of obvious unfunny jokes they can make about the Doctor being female…

Does anyone else miss the RTD era?

I miss the Russel T Davies Era so much! It was just fantastic. I loved Christopher Eccleston as a darker edgier Doctor and my favourite Doctor is David Tennant. He was so fun and easily lovable!

The RTD era gave us some of the most relatable companions. Rose, Martha & Donna were all brilliant and had families. I think it's really weird how all of Moffat's companions are orphans.

Not to mention during the RTD era Moffat was able to focus all his creativity on 1 good episode a year.

I just miss the entire feel of the RTD era. I wish he stayed on for longer. We could've had an extra series of Donna who's the best companion!

Does anyone else think Doctor Who is going downhill?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a Whovian, but more of a has-been. (possible spoilers if you're really behind) I loved the show when it returned in 2006. But when 11 took over, well, I'll summarise my problem - Every episode leaves questions unanswered, the tone makes it seem like it's always the finale, and there don't seem realistic consequences. An example of the finale thing - In the first episode of series 6, The Doctor dies. An example of the consequences thing - 'The Doctor's death is a fixed point, he must always die', except when he finds a way out of it. I much preferred 9 and 10's style - Each episode (or 2-part episode) is independant with very subtle hints towards the series finale. Please let me know your opinion.

Don’t get me wrong, I say this as a fan


 No.26823

First things first: I should establish that I am what you might call a "female Doctor skeptic." I am a bit uncomfortable with the Doctor changing genders, and I'm not going to go into the details why here (but if you want to know I can tell you in the comments), but at the same time I'm the type of fan who is going to continue watching and supporting the show no matter what, even if I have some criticisms. And so I really hope I can be convinced that this was the right time for a female Doctor, that this was the right choice, that my worries and concerns will go unfounded.

Of course, you can't expect all this to be resolved in a minute at the end of a regeneration episode. I never expected, and still don't expect, that I have a chance of being won over fully until Series 11 begins airing. But what disappoints me is that I was expecting to get something out of Jodie Whittaker's first scene. But I just. . .didn't.

Besides the fact that I hate the ridiculous New Who tradition of the TARDIS crashing after practically every single regeneration (I mean, really? Even though it was established in Classic Who the TARDIS aided regeneration?), with every other Doctor at least we still got to spend some time with them. Even though post-regeneration scenes are hardly anything accurate to go by character-wise, they're still great for getting a sense of the actor in the role itself and, in the past, have always served as a hook to see how this upcoming Doctor will be.

And that's what I really don't like about Whittaker's first scene. She says 2 words (which, I will concede, was probably the best response Chibnall could have chosen, so kudos for that) but then immediately the TARDIS is sent haywire and the Doctor is thrown out nearly immediately, giving us with no sense whatsoever of Jodie as the Doctor. I know it probably didn't feel this way to most people, but speaking as someone who is skeptical of the change, this felt like a distraction as opposed to owning this bold decision.

I don't expect her to directly reference the change - but what I did expect was for some sort of reassurance that this is the same person, this is still the Doctor, not the female Doctor. And I wasn't just hoping this for myself, but all the other skeptics too. Like I said, I'm still going to stick by the show no matter what, and it didn't do anything to put me off of her Doctor.

But, at it's core, this is what bothers me so much: if I wasn't this kind of fan, if I was considering leaving the show after Twice Upon a Time, this scene would do nothing to convince me to stay on. Which I think is really, really sad. After making such a bold move, it feels like Chibnall wimped out at the last moment and threw in the, quite forced I might add, action of the TARDIS exploding to distract viewers from the change, rather than owning it and showing the skeptics that there's nothing for them to worry about. Which I think is just a shame.

I know the vast majority of you here are quite excited to have a female Doctor, so this doesn't present an issue for you, but I felt like I had to share my thoughts and concerns, because I love this show and I want to see it do well. I don't by any means think it will get cancelled or anything, I'm just disappointed that now it seems less likely other skeptics will be convinced.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If anyone has something they'd like to add, or rebuttle something I had to say, that'd be great. I'd love to discuss it.

TL;DR: I was incredibly disappointed by Jodie Whittaker's first scene because it does nothing to convince the skeptics that they should keep watching. Instead of proving that Jodie Whittaker is still the same character we all know and love, Chibnall seemed to distract from it with the TARDIS exploding, which seemed a very timid move after such a bold casting choice.

Why does Moffat explain things rather than show them

Throughout moffats era big things have happened and in particular things such as the Tardis explosion by the silence,the brainwashing of river song,the master escaping Gallifrey in the pocket universe and the timelords retuning to the universe.

Now as I recall none of these were shown however just explained in a few words,why does Moffat have this habit of explaining events rather than actually showing us them particularly the silence blowing the Tardis up??

 No.26830

After the last 2 disappointing seasons of sherlock, 3-4. and this terrible tenth season of doctor who(thank god its his last season on doctor who), I think I'm finally done with him. Moffat is such an uneven writer, he can produce some great work, but most of his writing is trash. I mean I love the first 2 seasons of sherlock and seasons 5,8,9 of doctor who. But other than those two it seems like no matter how good he starts out on a show, his writing suffers as the show goes on. He ruined two globally popular tv shows this year, Im not looking forward to that tin tin movie or sherlock ever again.

I hate Steven Moffat (and Clara). there I've said it.

I've been watching Dr Who for several years now (started watching the last season of Tennant in real time) and I've done my homework and watched most of the classic who that I can get my hands on. I'm a fairly large whovian, but not obsessed. All this to try and establish where I'm coming from and my "credibility."

Ever since Moffat took over, that tongue and cheek deus ex machina drives me nuts. I just have lost emotional connection to the series. The first few seasons with Matt and his relationship with Amy and Rory held my attention, and honestly I wasn't ready to let go of Dr who yet. But i have to admit that Clara has driven me away from the franchise. I just don't care about her, or how smart she is. I love capaldi dearly, but feel like the gravitas he could actually bring to the part is being completely overlooked.

I was excited when Clara was supposed to leave and now that she's not, i've just stopped watching. Hopefully it can reclaim the magic at somepoint, but I have to voice the minority opinion that Dr who just has lost that special something. I'm writing all of this because my wife and I finally deleted the christmas special without watching it and I felt like mourning Dr who a bit. Apologies for rambling. You don't need to agree with me, and I'm not looking to be convinced, but just had to get it off my chest.

For those of you who are enjoying the current dr who, continue to do so. But for those of you who aren't anymore, know that you're not alone.

Too much attention on the companions in general.

The purpose of the companions - other than the traditional "something for the dads" - is to stand in for the audience - the Doctor is an alien, god-like super-being, if he didn't have to explain everything to his human companions his motives might be a bit hard to understand. Human companions also give him a good reason to hang around Earth more.

If there's a criticism of New Who it's that the companions for some reason have to be ultra special in some way - think of the "Bad Wolf" arc of Rose Tyler. She was interesting enough as a working-class girl who lives in a council flat with a sense of adventure; there was no need to make her savior of the universe. Ditto Amy Pond, and Clara.

I started getting bored the second season of Smith. Not the whole season, but parts of it just started to become…uninspired. It's not just Clara, even though her character is utterly insufferable. It's the writing in general. Moffat is great at the 1-2 episodes per season. But a world-builder he is not.

I haven't like Clara or Any because they are so perfect and pretty and smart and ugh, but I don't hate them, I just wouldn't want to be their friend if they were real people and will be happy to see an new companion more like Donna or Martha.

Couldn't agree more. I've been watching since 1984 from the PBS days on KCET, it's my favorite show of all time, and I absolutely and totally loathe what it's become. I loved Matt and Karen. I loved Blink. I was so excited for the show when Moffat became the show runner and the direction he was taking it. But then it became a confusing incomprehensible mess with River's timeline. After that - the worst blow for me - Moffat shoehorned his own "Doctor" into the mythos. What an incredible cheat that was. And, oh yeah, Tenant regenerated twice. Then Smith - is he number 11 or 12 now? I'm honestly not even sure how to refer to him now - well, he got really old but thankfully a bunch more lives came through a crack in the sky, so he's okay now. Then he regenerated into a supporting character in his own show. I think Capaldi could have been a great Doctor, but I'm so biased by how shitty the show has become from what it was when Smith started. Lazy writing from a show runner who wants to piss all over the material to make his mark instead of serve the characters and the show itself. I will always watch it, I will always support it - but it just makes me sad now.

>Rewriting? I write the final draft of almost all scripts - except Steven Moffat's,

Matthew Graham's, Chris Chibnall's and Stephen Greenhorn's - and that draft becomes the Shooting Script. I might change at least 30 per cent of the material, often 60 per cent, sometimes almost 100 per cent. I go over every line of dialogue, either adding new stuff or refining what's there; sometimes that means enhancing a line that the original writer hasn't realised is good. I'll bring out themes, punch up moments, add signature dialogue, clarify stage directions and make cuts. To every single scene, if need be. Usually, the basic shape remains intact, but sometimes I'll invent brand new characters and subplots… while at the same time remaining faithful to the original writer. I'll even impersonate them.

Sometimes, yes, this does mean treading on other writers' toes. I'm sure some of them think of it as vandalism. Equally, to be fair, others are very grateful. But my job is to get the Best Possible Script on screen, even if that means stampeding over someone. The viewer at home doesn't care who wrote it; they just want it to be good. My job is to make

it as good as it can be. Take no prisoners! And it's got to be done fast, so I haven't time to pussyfoot around, transplanting lines of dialogue, delicately. Even interesting stuff has to go sometimes, because I can only find room for myself by shifting back all the furniture, making it my own. This is a multi-million quid show that has to be the absolute best it can be.

I know right, I had a laugh at the insanity it. What the fuck quality of media has RTD been following to say shit like that? Acting like there's a sacred distinction between the waking and sleeping world in fiction, which already does constitute dreaming from the actual material world, is plebian enough, but then ignoring the literal thousands of years of art that's tapped into dream states and dream consciousnesses for storytelling is just blatantly ridiculous. Unless literally all the man has read and seen is the most mainstream of mainstream film/TV and lit, where you get high school tier symbolism in shitty dream sequences where writers bang out their themes, it's a ridiculously dumb fucking thing to say.

 No.26899

He's very well read but he's also a savant for the mainstream. His interest in the mainstream is so powerful it wraps around and becomes esoteric again. He objects in particular that dreams don't move the plot forward in the general sense, and he's extremely invested in the sanctity and primacy of plot, here defined as "events that happen in the work of fiction you're infosorbing".

>>26896

>>26897

I'm reminded, as I often am, of this scene:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VseQe4TFsg

The actual writer/teacher Brian Cox is playing said he doesn't mind voice over, so long as you're not just having characters describe everything the viewer can already see on the screen. To me, that can still be of value, because the divide between what the viewer sees and how the character describes it can illuminate a great deal about the character, their thought process, and what they value. I feel the same way about dream sequences, for that matter.


 No.26900

>>26898

If I may say, I'm pretty certain RTD recognizes that certain films do use dream sequences well. But he's not working with Lynch, he's working with Matt Jones and others. And dream sequences is often a way to add fake peril, or pad a screenplay.

I'm not even saying he's fully correct. But it's not as dumb as you make it seem. *

>He's very well read but he's also a savant for the mainstream.

I think that ability to tap into the mainstream is both the source of all his weaknesses in writing, as well as why he was able to keep the show so popular for so long. Moffat doesn't have that same instinct, I think, even though I love his work. Not sure about Chibnall.

Eughrhrhr I don't even enormously disagree with that in a sense, I just deride the hateful privileging over some stupid sense of tangibility and plot as the "real story" in something instead of accepting all stories are as valid as they are dreams.

RTD isn't dumb, but dismissing dream sequences out of hand like that is absolutely dumb. The fucking Epic of Gilgamesh has dream sequences.

Some stories are better put together than others, and although plot isn't the end-all of story production, it's the part where failings are most easily felt. I think that a lot of people are more attuned to plot deficiencies than style deficiencies, and if you go with a story that's "style over plot", a lot of people will get lost if they're not used to it.

Looking back after the Capaldi years, the whole "intricate unfolding super-plot" vibe of the Smith era feels so hollow in comparison. The Russel series were so much tighter in theme and execution than the Smith series. But I still think of the Smith years as a definite step up from the Russel years (even Series 1, when Russel was still hungry).

I think it has to do with this:

>I’ve just got a gut feeling about this, but I think that if the moment the opening titles are over, you go into a Scene One that’s set on a purple planet with three moons, and some man in a cloak is making a villainous death threat … then the audience would just switch off in their millions. That’s just an instinct, but I think you should set all that high flown end-of-the-world stuff in a very real world of pubs and mortgages and people.

But know that doesn't necessarily result in something bad. (It does if it's written as shit as he's making it out to sound, but he's generalizing to mean everything that isn't "grounded"). This "instinct" only matters for making television that's digestably populist. The Smith years were a step up then, because they were the point at which the revived Doctor Who was allowed to finally be it's old weird self again, instead of the carefully managed populist brand of weirdness it was under Russel. It didn't mattter if it took the form of superficial self-celebratory nostalgiac showboating, as long as it just moved on from contemporary reality. It restored a sort of timelessness the classic show had developed from transforming itself so many times.

It isn't so much that the Smith era cut ties with reality as that it cut ties with a certain (re)starting point grounded in a particular time. It's relieving, like without that sort of grounded beginning it seems like it won't have a particular ending, and that seems like the "natural" state for the show.

I sort of see your point, although it gets perilously close to "RTD Who wasn't real Who", which I would disagree with. What's interesting is that the Seven + Ace era, which is often lauded, also tried to go "domestic", though that was still weirder than RTD's Who.

>It isn't so much that the Smith era cut ties with reality as that it cut ties with a certain (re)starting point grounded in a particular time.

That's good–it does make Who timeless, but I worry if that also makes Who harder for the casual audiences to relate too. RTD probably went too far with his populism at times, but I wonder if a "timeless Who" could also be too far the other way.

It certainly was "Real Who" - but the trouble with reviving something that's been down for so long is that it may not be able or allowed to do the same sort of things as the original run; there's a sense of "that was then, this is now". Moffat Who did a lot to make "then" possible "now".

>RTD probably went too far with his populism at times, but I wonder if a "timeless Who" could also be too far the other way.

It's "timeless" now. If Chibnall goes full RTD 2.0 and places the same limitations on the show again it will still be "timeless", because it's carrying on directly from the Moffat years. It's more to do with accomplishing a certain variety of things in a span which has thorough narrative continuity. "New Who" and "Classic Who" may technically be part of the same show/media universe, but there's still a definite gap there that has to be acknowleged. When it gets cancelled again it will almost certainly have to work it's way back to "full potential".

Yes, and it was brilliantly executed. People (especially kids, who are supposedly who the show is for first) don't have any inherent problem with that sort of thing. It's a show about a time-and-space-travelling alien, why not travel in time and space? Isn't that why people watch it?

It's a demographics thing, that's supposed to maximise the potential audience. It's supposed to get in the people who think this sort of thing is shit to also watch.

Of course, given the sorry state of Star Trek and other sorts of televised science fiction at the time (which inevitably revolved around it in some way), the "sci-fi tv is shit" crowd wasn't necessarily composed of people with no imagination.

My greatest disappointment with TMA/TWF is that Sarff actually wasn't more thematically integrated. Remember when the Missy announcement had her eating an apple and making allusions to the Garden of Eden?

Symbolic meaning is interesting as a layer under literal meaning. Symbolic meaning as the only meaning, as it too often is in dream sequences, is not that interesting.

- Does exactly the one thing people didn't want the story to do, by making 12 the explicit cause of all Davros' later activities: "you taught me the most valuable lesson of all. We are alone […] So I filled the world with me!"

- Erases all of the lore about Davros' actual motivations and origins in favour of stuff about Moffat's retcon: "The universe turned on a helpless child…and found itself outnumbered" and other stuff that generally downplays the idea of him as having an ideology ("Look what they made me do")

- Clarifies that in the current version of events, the Doctor did, in fact, leave the young Davros alone on the battlefield (meaning the ending where he saves Davros constitutes rewriting time…even though the Doctor only goes and does it because he realises the Daleks have mercy in their DNA so he has to go back and put it there, so it makes no fucking sense for it to be rewriting time really)

The fact that so many books still name Doctor Who as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" science fiction television programme ever only tells you how far science fiction still is from becoming serious television programming. Book critics have long recognized that the greatest science fiction authors of all times are Olaf Stapledon and Stanisław Lem, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Film critics rank the highly controversial Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice over science fiction films which were highly popular in courts around Europe. Television critics are still blinded by commercial success. Doctor Who achieved higher viewing figues than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore it must have been the greatest. Book critics grow up reading a lot of books music of the past, film critics grow up watching a lot of films of the past. Television critics are often totally ignorant of the television of the past, they barely know the top ratings. No wonder they will think that Doctor Who did anything worthy of being saved.

Maybe it was less "12 was surprised to see Nardole" and more "12 was surprised to see that Nardole found him"

Or, Twelve and Nardole traveled together for some time, then split ways, and then crossed paths again later at the trial (that would tie into the fact that the repairs that Nardole mentions 12 having done to put Nardole together in Mysterio have clearly happenned before the Missy trial, and are hinted to be canon.)

I'm in the same boat. I stopped watching when the plot kept seeming more and more like some weird ponzi scheme asspull.

I may be remembering wrong, but it seemed like the earlier doctors seemed to succeed with cunning and luck, but didn't have too many deus ex machinas. It's supposed to be a lighthearted show, but it seems like the hitchkikers guide is more structured at this point. If you continually don't play by the rules you set up, no one is going to give a fuck when the next setup appears, because we know it's all going to go out the window in a few episodes anyway.

>>26818

Look at QI, where they now require at least one of the panelists to be female. Even if it isn't overtly feminist, the problem is not going to be that the doctor is female, but that she's female and in the hands of NuBritish writers.

>I may be remembering wrong, but it seemed like the earlier doctors seemed to succeed with cunning and luck, but didn't have too many deus ex machinas.

No no, I totally agree. Let's be real - the writing has basically gone to shit. Some bland speech and a wave of the sonic screwdriver counts for a climax and ending now I guess, but I remember when Doctor Who episodes had actual plots and actual follow through.

>If you continually don't play by the rules you set up, no one is going to give a fuck when the next setup appears, because we know it's all going to go out the window in a few episodes anyway.

Yup, and I think the show would do well to take a few pointers from some American sci-fi shows with focused worldbuilding because of this - I'm thinking Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Star Trek Enterprise, that sort of thing.

>Even if it isn't overtly feminist

Come on. We both know it will be. The days of the BBC supporting role models for boys are effectively over.


 No.27277

I wasn't the huge fan of Doctor Who. I watched but had issues with it. Roses repeated bad luck rubbed me as unbelievable for example. The Time War had no point. Tons of things happened because people didn't talk which is a huge cliché

But, overall, it was fun to watch and seemed to make internal sense. That is until Season 5.

I actually lost interest around season 3. I skimmed season 4 and then stopped watching. But, after all the hype about season 5 from a couple of my friends I decided to go back and watch all of seasons 3 and 4 without skimming and then watch season 5.

Warning: SPOILERS!!!

In season 5 suddenly, out of the blue, The TARDIS has 9 people we've never heard of that she has to pay off. That's a BS made up reason that never existed in the previous 4 seasons just to give her a reason to stay.

The starwhale caper is, at least as far as I can remember, the first thing in the entire series that's completely impossible. Meaning all the stuff previous was believable science but now suddenly there's they're pulling crap out of their asses.

Next they fly planes in space. The most over the top thing they've done the entire series and totally outside anything that's happened so far. It's like they channeled the spirit of Michael Bay.


 No.27278

The whole sub story with the girl who waited and all that seemed contrived and ridiculous.

I didn't buy The Doctors guilt. He's been a bad kid most of his life. Being guilt ridden over that kind of stuff is a Hollywood cliché and doesn't match real life at all as far as I can tell. At worst it's like the movie, "Crimes and Misdemeanors". You feel a little guilt, you're worried you'll get caught, and then after a few months you go back to normal. It's no different than losing a loved one.

I love the placement of the NIN song in the Return ep8 so much. It's such a great moodsetter between the doppelganger stuff in the first 10min of the ep, and the nightmare of the rest of the ep. Iirc it's the first Roadhouse song not at the end of an ep too; everything is unsettling and wrong about it.

He cast a woman, he's done his duty doing something healthy for Who in the longrun. I hope his run is good but I'm not particularly invested in what and how he does either way. I assure you, Chibnall is not going to make a series I'll have a strong negative reaction to. I got a good few years of Who being very tailored kino to me, I'm more than happy for it to be that for other people now, and have no real interest in prolonged whinging about that. I'm much more taken to whinging now since there's nothing even here yet and I'm just bemoaning some dumb things I'll miss since we haven't gotten anything to fill the hole yet.

>>27309

That's a good question. I think the key things with the moment are how seismic what it's showing is and that it's completely, utterly out of the blue. What's a Doctor Who moment with an abrupt, sustained big loredrop/visual setpiece disconnected with the main narrative out of the blue? Hmm…the Davros flashback in the original Journey's End script, a bit? Not really out of the blue but it would have been a big setpiece of a loredrop we didn't "need" but would have coloured the themes of the episode.

Ooh, actually, the "and that man was me" moment in the 50th kind of. At that point in the ep nothing really in episode had signified the Time War would become relevant, and then the ep sojourns off into a big setpiece about hidden incarnations and Time War battles and whatnot. If you didn't have the context of the episode being a 50th special, it kinda is similar.

If the Laika stuff in Alien Bodies came in the middle instead of the beginning, that would be similar.

Here's a fun similar thing: the ending of the Return ep17 is extraordinarily similar to how 8 meets 1 in The Eight Doctors, right down to coming to him like a ghost out of the woods and having a vague conversation with him about the future.

Really, Eleven was particularly bad about it. Moffat has said he writes the Doctor as though he's under the delusion he's the start of a series of stories called Doctor Who, and it's never more clear than when Matt Smith is running around the Tardis chanting "Doctor Who!"

Series 11 airs in a few months (I can't wait for a trailer to drop so we can finally get a sense of who the characters will be and what the cinematography looks like), and I was actually thinking about this for a while. We don't know how much promotion there will be for the series, and I'm not too confident that the BBC and BBCA will promote the series well enough, but even if they do I think it would be cool if we started something like a fan campaign and as website to raise awareness/hype up the series. I think it would be cool if someone made a cool looking poster that just said "THIRTEEN" on it so that people would see it and eventually get curious, google it, and end up on some fan website promoting series 11. This is a really unfeasible idea, but I just thought it would be cool to share in case anyone thought something similar.

Side note: This is a personal opinion, but I will become extremely excited for Chibnall's version of the show if we don't see the TARDIS interior in the trailer. Restraint is a good sign.

What do you guys think? Thanks a lot for reading and God bless!

uh

what about cases like robert downey jr where he as an individual earns millions more than every other actor, male or female? Acting contracts largely seem so subjective and individually negotiated, treating it like an office job salary situation feels misguided

how would they quantify "equal work" in terms of actor roles?

>Although the page is textless, it still manages to speak volumes about the direction this new iteration of the time-travelling Gallifreyan will take. The three panels are bathed in a warm and bright light, and every single one of them features beautiful and lush colors. As evidenced by the big grin on this new Doctor’s face, it appears that this version of the Time Lord will once again be filled with a sense of pure wonder.

>Strange new lifeforms, from colorful animals to plants, are hers to discover — an entire universe is at her fingertips. This is the fresh start the series has been in need of, especially after the last dark few years that starred Peter Capaldi’s 12th iteration of the Doctor. Capaldi was brilliant in the role, but the series also veered into much darker and serious territory. If the 13th Doctor’s live-action and comic book debuts are any indication, she will bring joy and fun back through all of space and time.

>She’s the Doctor. That’s it. Because what could possibly be more Doctor-ish than a lush alien world, the TARDIS materialising into view, and the Doctor stepping out of that blue box, a smile on her face, ready for an adventure? It’s simple, it’s beautiful, and it thoroughly strikes at the heart of who the Doctor is, regardless of the face they’re wearing. Endless wanderlust, onward to the next beautiful vista or the next evil to defeat.

>To understand just who the 13th incarnation of everyone’s favourite Time Lord is, we don’t need to learn what mannerisms or catchphrases she’ll have, or if she’ll be an angry Doctor, or a silly Doctor, or an anything Doctor. We need to see that smile on her face, as she races off into time and space for the next story just waiting to unfold. THAT is who the Doctor really is, deep down, and in a single page, Houser and Stott encapsulate that brilliantly.

>The very real internet obsession with George Lucas‘ neck is kind of saddening really when you realize just how much worth is given to a person based on their personal appearance. While Lucas isn’t the thinnest guy in the world he’s also not the youngest or the most active which means that at one point or another fat deposits are going to develop and settle in. When one begins to age the jaw line is unfortunately one of those areas that begins to collect some of the most fatty tissue in the body, especially if the muscles in that region are not used as often so as to keep the contour of the jaw line prominent and well-defined. So yes, George Lucas’ chin does seem to be in the process of being taken over by his neck, but it still seems quite rude to go on and on about it no matter what kind of man he might be.

>Plus the obsession with it is simply disturbing. In some cases it almost seems as though some people see his neck like a car wreck, they want to look away but they can’t. His physical condition has been parodied many a time throughout the years since he started getting older and showing signs of increased weight gain. It doesn’t even matter how well-groomed and hygienic he is, Lucas is still the subject of ridicule a lot of times simply because of his looks. In public it doesn’t seem like he cares about such opinions, which is a positive thing since otherwise he might be too embarrassed to ever make his way outside. But in private it’s not really known how he feels and that’s probably for the best. It’s simply sad that people feel the need to talk about something like this in such a way in an attempt to drag him and his reputation down. Obviously people are always going to talk about something they find strange or out of the ordinary, but talking about a person’s appearance in a negative manner usually says more about the person talking than the individual being talked about. Yes, Lucas has a very big, thick, fatty neck, but as it was already mentioned age tends to do this to people.

>If people were to look around they might see that a lot of people moving into their later years in life have this same issue. The wattle that forms under the chin and makes the neck look grotesque in some ways is quite natural since as people age they’re not always as active and aren’t likely to stretch the same muscles the way they used to. For George Lucas however this has become something of a trademark look since his neck is quite big. It just seems rude to point that out in so many different ways online since it’s pretty obvious the guy knows about it. It’s been something he’s had to live with as it’s developed and still has to live with as of now.
