>cheap and disposable

I didn't realise we were talking about Stevehen Muppet's writing?



I wish there were more examples of it, but both writers achieved that sometimes - Moff more than RTD, because he cared less about the viewing figures, but RTD had the aforementioned L&M and the even more on-the-nose CoE; Moffat had arguably all of series 8 (especially Listen) and Heaven Sent to explore his 'adult take'. I think what's more upsetting is that we so rarely got to see RTD's take on the Doctor and the universe, even though he's a fucking fantastic writer.

Okay, this is epic



Fantastic ideas. This would really be the perfect medium for Daleks, imo: something like Dalek Empire but on TV. The 22nd century Dalek invasion is just such a good idea; I hope NuWho visits it sometime. (And that's not even taking into account Sarah Hadley's absolutely haunting vision of post-Invasion Earth from "Star's View of Caroline" and "Man of Smoke and Dust".)

Myself, I'd probably want something set in the City of the Saved. But I've already written about how I'd want a City of the Saved TV show to go.


I dunno about that. It's not like any of those stories came about from "Wow this story is so good, I bet it'd even be good without the Doctor, let's try it." They were all "Well, we can't fully / properly include the Doctor in this story, for whatever reason. Where do we go from here?" (Except "Cabinet of Light", I guess.)


This is a great analysis. When the Doctor is being used as an archetype in the background, it produces a completely different effect than when they're actually present as a character.

>The Doctor may be a God to some, he may be a God to himself, but he never gets to see the tsunami he leaves behind, and the lives he ruins. Because he never sees that, neither do we.

Great stuff.


I didn't know about that! I get why they didn't let him do that, but I really wish they had.

That's part of what I meant to say with my post. If you have to make a Doctor-less Doctor Who story, you have to think very hard to find a reallyy convincing story idea to justify that. Dead Romance is a similar but very peculiar case - a novel from a range that can't use the Doctor, that doesn't even feature the main character of that range and that is linked to a different Doctor Who range from another publisher. Children of Earth is "just" a really brilliant season from a show that had some really poor ones as well.

>I get why they didn't let him do that, but I really wish they had.

Okay, I'm an idiot. I just checked and it was actually RTD who changed the ending, influenced by something Moffat said.

I think it's a damn shame. New Earth could have been what Sleep No More tried and failed to be in some ways: a working "sawardian" NuWho story where the Doctor can't save anyone. It would have been an absolute punch to the gut of a season opener and a much more interesting start to Tennant's run.



>it was actually RTD who changed the ending, influenced by something Moffat said.

If only Moff weren't so uppity about his fucking 'everybody lives' rule



Yet another fucking thing Muppet ruined.



The New Earth zombies were hardly likeable characters.




t. new Time Team



They weren't outright evil, either. What matters it that it wouldn't have been the expected "positive" ending.



From a showrunner perspective, Tennant mercy-killing them all would have been too similar to Age of Steel. Although it would have been an interesting, and probably better, alternative, I agree with the decision here - especially considering it was a new Doctor's first proper episode.



calm down, it's not like moffat forced him to write a positive ending.

Good post.


That's one of the things I'd still love to help out with, if just because it'd give me an excuse to barrage my author friends with questions.

Btw when /who/ comes back in October we should think about maintaining some sort of list of upcoming / recent EU releases and shizz, so mods will have something to look at when they're thinking about banning us again when the season ends.

It was on the planet Skaro that my old enemy the Master was finally put on trial. They say he listened calmly as his list of evil was read and sentence passed. Then he made his last, and I thought somewhat curious, request. He demanded that I - the Doctor, a rival Time Lord - should take his remains back to our home planet, Gallifrey.

It was a request they should never have granted.

Strange how for you, the current date feels closer to the reveal, rather than the reveal feeling closer to the current date.

For me, the Jodie reveal feels like it was in January, as opposed to it feeling like January for me right now.

What do you think the odds are that Chibnall keeps Christmas specials vs scrapping them? On one hand scrapping them would be in line with the "revamp the show" approach, but it would definitely be a sacrifice in terms of recapturing the RTD family feel.



Moffat wrote TUAT solely so they could keep the Christmas slot.



I know that, but he did it out of his own good will, not because he knew for sure that Chibnall would make it worthwhile.



More like he's an egotistical psychopath who wants to write as many stories as possible so he can be hailed as the "best" by casual Nuvian fans.

The first time I heard it was "Yannel" and then every time afterwards was "Laurel".



come on its blue and black xD



I heard yanny at first but then I listened for laurel and heard that too

laurel sounds like a computer generated male voice while yanny sounds like a comedic robot voice with weird intonation, so I'm going to say it's meant to be laurel



how the fuck could it be anything other than yanny?



what what the fuck i can hear both now

yanny is higher pitched with laurel being a deep pitch that is slightly masked by yanny

unlike the black and blue dress which has an objectively correct answer, this one's a little different since it's highlighting the abstractions of a computer generated voice plus how pitch volumes affect the way we interpret what is being spoken

They're similar in that the dress was a debate because it was an incredibly overexposed picture and many people don't understand how lighting and white balance in photography work, while this one is an audio recording taken with a shitty microphone that doesn't pick up much of the bass that would have made it sound more clearly like laurel


yanny, laurel—I don't suppose any of that matters now. As long as there's mercy. Always mercy.

>Watching the abstracted light forms and patterns which appear in the opening sequence of Dr.Who has become a familiar ritual for all of us. The wonder of the opening is that it manages to capture in only a very few moments of screen time the atmosphere of Dr.Who.

>When that blue police box zooms in from a morass of complex light forms, there is no question of it"s right to be there. So already, within seconds of starting, the title designer has drawn us into the world of Dr. Who, & supspended our disbelief, setting an atmosphere that allows the rest of the programme to continue unhindered by attempts to justify the reality of what is happening.

>Bernard Lodge, senior BBC graphics designer is the man responsible for 13 years of Dr.Who graphics and 5 opening sequences. To achieve results like the Dr.Who titles, one requires more than expensive equipment and technical knowledge. One requires the artistic integrity and sensitivity of a man like Bernard Lodge.



Which one do you hear lads, Neo or Nilso?




it doesn't count when you blend both neo and nilso together



A lesser imitation of Gunn but that's not really a bad thing for the MCU to be trying. It's not a coincidence these films work better when they embrace being outright comedies. It's much less revolutionary than hailed, but the NZ comedy largely works, the composer actually tries, and there's even a few rare moments of imaginative visuals.

>There probably have been weaker episodes in the past four years, but now, for me, it's hard to see which ones. It's probably my fault if an episode is weak. I mean, okay, we all talk about Aliens of London with a slightly regretful tone, because we were learning, we'd never worked with prosthetics before, and the schedule was impossible… well, do you know, I watched it on BBC Three the other night - and what a classic episode! The Doctor's in Downing Street. A spaceship flies into Big Ben. Penelope Wilton [Harriet Jones] is watching Slitheen murder people. Frankly, it's brilliant. If I'm absolutely honest, I think some fans don't yet realise how good these last four years have been.

>I've been watching some of Series Three - not for work, but with a state of mind that says, deliberately, this isn't as good as I thought it was. In fact, it's crap. I've failed. I'm rubbish. I'm lucky. I'm a fraud. I've lost it, and this next script is the script that will expose that. Etc.

That's just a rough idea, but a good character, instantly sellable to a guest actress, and a great partnership for the Doctor — a sexy, sassy, hard-but-lovely woman with the heart of a thief. THAT is how to invent a story.

I liked it too if that wasn't clear (: Have you seen Infinity War? What did you think of follow up to Thor 3 in it?


I know Nilso


Of course


I love movies, and the cinema specifically. Back home I would go more or less every week, I have a mate as into movies as me so it worked out really well. I really miss that desu. Over here I started off going pretty often but kind of died down on going consistently as I got busier and found other stuff to do here. I might see Deadpool 2 next week, and I'll see Soylo when it drops. The release schedule is really weird here, occasionally we get a great older English-speaking movie so I keep my eyes peeled, but usually it's a drought with just tonnes of Korean stuff and the Hollywood tentpoles.



>moff at 50/50







I disagree with the notion that it is "bullying". Every trip gets hazed. If they can't handle it, they leave or go anon - as they should. No individual should be capable of forcing themselves onto /who/ without pushback.

Given hunter's previous behaviour, I believe he would take being ignored as passive acceptance. He has shown multiple times in the past that he lives in a bubble where immigrant represents /who/ consensus and he won't listen to anyone else - so the lack of any contrasting opinion would just reinforce his bubble.

Not sure if memeing



I know how you feel

I only just found out jimmy fallon and jimmy kimmel are different people


rap is not music



Taking off my trip to say I agree with your second paragraph in particular.



So pick apart everything he says. Word by word line by line if you feel the need to engage. Spamming "Why do you need a name" does nothing but make them dig in their heels and resist the notion. It's the easiest criticism to ignore. I agree that every trip gets hazed, and deserves it. I'm telling you that your game is lacking. Step it up fam, or don't give him any attention at all.



Correct, it's a style of vocal delivery. "Singing" is not music either. Hip-hop, of course, is music.



Unironically this. Hunter's previous behaviour shows that he'll take being ignored as a silent and positive acceptance.



I kinda think that trip hazing is sort of undeserved. I remember my "hazing", and it wasn't very nice.

Why not just ignore him, and post about Who?



I'm not memeing I just found out, how can one man be so talented?



He literally ignores every single thing people say whether it is negative or positive. He lives in his own personal bubble and like Chris-Chan he takes everything said to him as some sort of acceptance. He literally does not belong.


why is this even a discussion? if someone makes a dogshit post, ignore it or reply and say its a dogshit post If their trip is relevant to the post itself, then reference that in your reply if you want.

He's fantastic? I don't think everything he tries out perfectly (his standup was awful imo), but it's genuinely impressive how cross-talented he is. Been a big fan of him for years.



>ignore it or reply and say its a dogshit post

I agree. To me, the best way to stop off-topic posts, or dogshit posts, is by ignoring those posts, and posting on-topic stuff. As it was said, starve their (You)'s.



Not that anon but where does this definition of music come from lmao




He doesn't care about being responded to. He's that kid who no one inside the group likes but still tries to pretend he's part of the main group.



I didn't provide any definitions of music



As it was said, hunter is a particular case where ignoring is interpreted as passive acceptance.

Okay, this is epic



then who the fuck cares? the posts existing in the thread don't impact you, just ignore it



okay, this is very cool



>trip hazing is sort of undeserved

No it absolutely is. Trial by fire is a necessity. It builds character.


He'd get the hint eventually. He's just exceptionally slow on the uptake and I suspect on the spectrum. We don't have to live in his bubble. We just have to see it occasionally, or not since you could filter his posts.



Very cool



Steven doesn’t deserve to suffer



He's also made no effort at all to be part of /who/ culture and instead of being here for a long time he instantly jumped to tripping. Hazing separates those who can and those who cannot.


"lol just ignore this person who doesn't belong here at all guys, he only disrupts conversation and posting by being an attention seeking plebian and ruins the rest of the threads"


IIRC he's had three chances to get the hint here, but also not taken the hint several times in the D*scord.




And he'll just be talking by himself. Or, we could just ignore his cringier statements, and just focus on when he's on-topic. If we just keep discussions with him about Who, he'll just be someone with cringey quirks. Honesly, considering we've had "Mongo" and "Melanon" and "fat Ten-poster", he's not really that bad.

I mean, he likes the Capaldi era, and he appreciates Troughton's era. That at least raises him above a certain "pleb" level.

You're right.

Driving isn't a type of vehicle, but it's a verb related to them. Singing and rapping are both related to music but they're not types of music in and of themselves, apart from "rap" colloquially referring to hip-hop.


Neo, you’re scaring me


File: 382ab3913b1ae4e⋯.jpg (25.96 KB, 434x414, 217:207, basedreviews.JPG)

how can one reviewer be so based?



Well I disagree with the definition that music can refer only to genres/styles and not individual components of the music itself. A better equivalency with the vehicle would be saying that operating your indicators isn't driving, it's just pushing a button, when it's solely a part of the act of driving.




As far as I'm concerned that has no bearing or gravity here. You might as well say "X did this on reddit." Filter his posts if his name is so triggering. If he says something shitty, by all means dogpile and shit all over him. Call him "Cunter" idc, just bring something better than the "why do you need a name" nonsense.



Driving is vehicular and rapping is musical but I feel like semantically conflating nouns and verbs is the path to madness.



>call him Cunter

I'm pretty sure that's just me and it's literally all I do in regards to him :)



>Call him "Cunter"

What's some audience-hostile kino besides Twin Peaks: The Return and Red Letter Media?



arrested development season 4



Ooh good one.



How do you mean? I would've thought the show thinks the Bluths should get back together just as much as the audience theoretically wants them to.


Ingiga has a secret he will take to his grave and it is discovered



he's gay?


The doctors name must never be spoken



Not that anon but I agree the original S4 is audience-hostile insofar as there are long paces where it's intentionally confounding, confusing, doesn't make sense, and it takes an investment of several hours before the actual comedy starts compounding. The season all but demands a rewatch to make sense both narratively and comedically. S1-S3 were paced fantastically and were easy watches that you could discover new brilliance in in rewatches, but S4 actively doesn't even work at all for long stretches before the end and before a possible rewatch. It's not Twin Peaks level condemning-its-own-existence or RLM hating-their-audience level, but there is an element of not giving the audience what they want (at least easily) there.



AD4 is audience-hostile in the sense that it was structured in a format different to the previous seasons and not in a way that the audience expected or particularly wanted. It tells a different type of story since they didn't have the luxury of having all the cast together



His gayno is not the point, the sexuality you choose, it's like a promise you make

He's the one who broke the promise


Ghostlight is audience hostile




Right, I just thought audience-hostile meant something different than just being challenging.

I loved Season 4 on first watch btw



Okay, this is epic



when did he die?




Man spends three years masturbating himself to the intrigue over the Doctors name and then makes a joke about it being Doctor Who



It's a tale as old as time; limitations and creative constraints spawning genuine creativity and brilliance.


I loved it on first watch too, the satisfaction I got later in the season where things started connecting was the best experience I've had with the show. The S3 finale is so fantastic I was coming into S4 ready to hate it since I hate great endings being undercut by unnecessary sequels, but S4 transcended even that finale in the end.

I do thik there's a bit of a distinction between being audience-hostile and being challenging and would call S4 the latter if I had to choose. I don't feel like Hurwitz was trying to be hostile to the audience as much as trying to be as creative and funny as he could be with the constraints he'd been handed.


He's had many little deaths, if you know what I mean



For sure. I'd agree that it was audience-hostile if it made some kind of point that all the Bluths are a lot happier and better on their own, but instead it goes out of its way how outside of that incestuous family they all just become sadder, worse versions of themselves (one of the reasons I love it)



Good Man Goes to War is a better pick for an audience-hostile Doctor Who episode imo


File: d5152a08273f07a⋯.jpg (454.29 KB, 5734x2389, 5734:2389, PbkKnN6.jpg)


Related, I think what S4 did with Michael is brilliant. When you decouple his behaviour from regularly structured narratives, when you view him through the POVs of other character's instead of centring the show around him, you see that…he's just another Bluth. He's not the sane one or the kind one or the smart one, he's just another one of the deranged, selfish lot. Ron Howard tries to explain to him George Michael is the real sympathetic character amongst the mix and Michael doesn't get it, but after S4, we do.



V true, I also love how it shows George Michael taking his first real steps to "Bluth-ness", the narrator even says this explicitly when he starts lying about Fakeblock



I felt like the Fakeblock reveal is such an emotionally complicated moment. Of course it's fucking hilarious, but I also felt so profoundly disappointed in him, but at the same time very warm and sympathetic to him for his failures and predicament. I just stole a fair young miss, from a big shot George Maharis…



The way Hurwitz has talked about Season 4 as the first in a trilogy has me cautiously excited knowing how kino the character development was in that season alone—I really hope they keep that ball rolling.


The only way Donald Trump could ever impress me is by playing a Shadow Game against me.

"haha drumpfy" incoming regardless


My name is Eccleston. Are there any recent /tv/ threads with my name in them?



My only worry is S4 maybe being a case of the-build-up-being-better-than-the-follow-through. Now he has all the cast together there's less reason to experiment I guess.


I agree. I don't see any reason Hurwitz will change his tune from how he handled the Bush humour in S1-S3. And if anyone can find some new comedic angles in le Drumpf jokes, it's Hurwitz for sure.


I like Eccleston because he's secure in his masculinity, unlike me.

My hatred of it just stems from its userbase as opposed to any mere fact of its existence





/who/ will not be welcomed back lightly come October.


cukino in the stream


Why does everyone so readily want to go back to /tv/? We literally have it better here than we ever had it there.



That's why we should just stay here.



I'm mixed on it, leaning slightly towards preferring here. I'd say we won't be able to sustain concurrent /doctorwho/ on 8chan and /who/ on 4chan, but I guess the Discord sort of sustained itself concurrently didn't it? The generals are much more similar than that though.



If we're doing fine here why go back to half? We no longer have to share a catalogue with other generals/random threads, we don't have mods coming in and saying what we can and cannot post and we don't have "boardies" being a disruptive influence. Returning to half will bring back all three of those things.



I will admit that we're almost certainly capped here at about 50-60 users tops, but how many will we get from going back to half? Five? Ten?



We don't even have enough people to get a /who/nger games going anymore.


I anticipate that once the show starts again, even if people from here don't start threads on /tv/, there will be casual browsers of /who/ that weren't around for the exodus that take the initiative to start the threads up again



I'd assumed that the thread was being slow and lazy at that time.



We will slowly die out if we just stay here though. People naturally leave over time.



wasn't that because people complained?



The problem is that in the six months of /who/'s disappearance, there's probably been a whole wave of thousands of children joining /tv/ who don't remember /who/ and will think it's a new thing.



the case could be made that the majority of users who engaged in /who/nger games were casual users that didn't make it through the exodus. I have no data to support this, but it's a possibility



I'm leery of transforming us into permanently over here, /who/ is a 4chan general and I wonder if there'd be any long-term effects of staying solely here we wouldn't want. I get what you're saying. But there's kind of a frontier aspect of being on /tv/ that I think's healthy. I'm not grandly fussed either way.


I think a lot of /who/nger games responses were sameposting, and I imagine there's less sameposting these days when Cloister can see you do it


Interesting point


People asked for it to be done in a separate thread, people got assblasted by that, whinge whinge, it never happened in any thread

Fine, if new blood is ok lets officially let Hunter become a /who/ regular. Let's invite Reddit and all of the Discord people into /who/ while we're at it.






A talk about what?



break free from your cognitive dissonance, anon

the concept of fresh blood is not an inherent bad. that does not mean that there are not going to be cases of bad new people - hunter proves this. but the fact that people like hunter exist should not be used as a reason to deny anyone new from ever getting access to /who/



Literally everyone here was new once



False equivalence and you know it. There are good new users and bad ones. Bad ones being the rejects from Reddit/Discord. By contrast every single person here was new at some point but most found /who/ through 4chan, which is how the /who/ you like came to exist in the first place.



When everyone stops posting here except you and you're left with a dead general shitposting to yourself, I hope you can enjoy your gatekeeping still.



Nilso was even new, once.





nilso made /who/ truly /ourgod/

I think it's notable that my Kill the Moon essay has several paragraphs addressing common objections to the story while the people who dismiss my argument tend to more or less go "lol no" without coming close to actually engaging with any of my points.

A little bit unsure of what to do here - I've uncovered a picture online I'm unironically 99% sure was actually created by Nilso. But it wasn't done under the name "Nilso". It's not tied to his real name so I don't think it's doxxing, but some folks still might view it as a bit embarrassing considering the subject matter of the image. Should I share it?

Sandifer's essay on Kill the Moon is fantastic. I still personally don't think of this ep very highly, but El made some great points.


Also, did somebody else listen to Torchwood Believe? I know Cheetah did, but that's all.


If we do a /who/nger games should it be on this thread or a separate one? The problem with it being a separate one is that the threads are quiet enough as-is, and since most people generally only stick to the main thread (myself included) people will probably miss out and it would take hours to actually get a game running. Plus, we have the ability to post 3 images instead of one here, as well as the double-sized threads, which means it wouldn't take up nearly as much space as it did on 4chan.

At a school?



I see. Unrelated, but out of sheer curiosity, do you have any concerns about the NK relations?



At an academy, a language school.


The west, as always, is much more concerned than SK. People are used to how NK operates here and so the media here doesn't get any mileage out of spinning huge stories (doomsday or celebratory) that people will naturally see through here from experience. That said, there is cautious interest in what's happening right now. There are a lot of variables. I think Kim is shrewd enough to try and capitalise on the very particular set of circumstances he's in right now, and both Trump and Moon can mutually benefit from certain scenarios as well…Trump is unpredictable though. Both Koreas are good at manipulating him, but the US is a bad faith negotiator, so its complicated.

If SK ever did get nuked, I'm close enough to the border that I'd likely die quite quickly.



Did you see the video of that k-pop group dancing for those North Koreans?



Yeah, that was gold.

You're implying he's easily manipulated. Nobody pro-Trump can think that about our God Emperor.

Hell I'm critical about Trump but I wouldn't consider that to make me anti. If you remove the ability to criticise a certain thing/person you're opening up a whole can of worms.

Fables is kino, and should be regarded as a /who/ classic. It's to Eight what Box of Delights was to Two. Such a pity it didn't get picked up for a series.



A bottle episodes set entirely in a few rooms, something like Class' "Detained" or BF's "Protect and Survive".



A stand-alone classic-Doctor adventure would unironically be a really good idea for a Doctor-lite. Give Jodie some time off by making a light-hearted Colin Baker adventure or something, where she only makes a cameo at the end.



I wish the Big Bosses were more open to using Classic Doctors. An episode like that would be so highly marketed that I genuinely think, with an engaging story, it would be well-received among fans and casuals alike. Especially if it were a Tom story.

Life and soul






Will Dorney ever be better than Shearman?


do you reckon Nilso suffers from delusions of grandeur?



Maybe if he stops writing 50 stories a year and starts focusing (unlikely as prolificacy pays better than proficiency) he could come close, but even then I'd say Shearman's understanding of character is still unrivalled by any Doctor Who writer except maybe RTD at his best, for instance Children of Earth, and he's got that dark sense of humor underlying a lot of his stories which is very hard to recapture.


Slugging out mediocre story after mediocre story must sting somewhat. Do you reckon he numbs himself to it, thinks his stuff is good or do you think he's disappointed in himself?



It's good enough for most BF listeners (the reception on FB/Twitter/big review sites is overwhelmingly positive, it's like a few dozen people here, on GB and maybe on reddit and a couple of reviewers who complain), and it pays the rent, so I don't think he's especially torn about it. If he was too ambitious for BF he'd be off doing other things like Steven Hall.

what an excellent shitposter you are



That's alot of effort and for what exactly? Maybe you shouldn't try as hard. It's abrasive.


c. Nilso



Fucking based



Maybe I should clarify some more. Firstly you kind of insulted culture by discounting or comparing nilso posting to whatever you did there. Secondly shitposting is meant to be low effort(not to be confused with baiting, which takes some kind of strategery. Putting thought and energy into shitposting is counter intuitive unless you're some kind of avant garde shitposter which in that case you shouldn't be surprised by the lack of reception. Just try and contribute to the conversation, or start one.


Nilsoposting has run its course, it's time to kill it off. You know I'm right.

I'm so conflicted. A terrible President on a great Doctor.



I don't necessarily think shitposting is always low effort. The Trip OC charts, for example, were definitely high-effort shitposting (and they've given us lots of fun). The "Tupperware audio" was a (exquisite) shitpost that spawned an entire set of audios. That being said:


I agree that it'd be best if you just talked about Who for a while.

>a terrible president



>The Trip OC charts, for example, were definitely high-effort shitposting

That's A.P. Shitposting. Advanced placement, or Australian Proprietary. Either or. IMO it transcends conventional shitposting. I'm talking about remedial or novice shitposting. There's a hierarchy. Tupperware is not shitposting, that's satirical OC.



Good idea. Has /who/'s favorite Gallifreyan House been asked about? I can't decide between them.






>Tupperware is not shitposting, that's satirical OC.

Oh no, Tupperware is undoubtedly a shitpost, especially when it was first made. But it's an very well-done one.



More like mirralax amirite fellas?


Oh, and one other question: What is your favorite SJA story?




I'm not even sure how many /who/res know about the different Gallifreyan Houses.



Are we talking "Prydon" or, like, Lungbarrow and Paradox and such



I think you're completely wrong and your personal lexicon is askew, but I don't have the wherewithal to debate the semantics of the slang of chinese manufacturing forum.



Lungbarrow, Paradox, etc.



We've just discussed all of them that I know.

Well, that and I know they're non-canon.




But House Mirraflex was mentioned in 8's Ravenous boxset.



audios aren't canon either



Wew lad



What is canon then?



Only the current showrunner’s era



only the TV show and extended media directly referenced by the TV show



Only what you like.



So audios would count, and comics. Does that mean that, since it wasn't referenced in DW, Torchwood: Miracle Day doesn't count?



the wiki has an article that clears it right up



Miracle Day not only isn't referenced in Doctor Who, it also openly contradicts Doctor Who, as the Doctor's fixed point death at Lake Silencio takes place during the Miracle.



>Torchwood: Miracle Day doesn't count

Yes, but for an entirely different reason.



>So audios would count, and comics

only the specific audios and comics that are referenced. If the show referenced a character from EU but not a specific story they were in, it only confirms that a character with that name exists and not that any of their EU stories are canon



Everything is canon. Including all the conflicting accounts and histories.

Except for Lie of the Land, because Lie of the Land sucks.



With the sole and notable exception of Abslom Daak, who was 100% G-level canon even before Time Heist.




Whoa there potty mouth!



Yeah, but Eleven never actually died, so…



And Twice Upon A Time, the canon regeneration is at the end of The Doctor Falls so the pun works



the doctor does fall down in TDF though



but at no point do any of the characters mention that the doctor shouldn't have been able to die because of the miracle



It works better with Jodie falling out of the TARDIS than Peter tripping over



Wasn't that AFTER the Universe rebooted itself?

reminder that according to the BBC the only explicitly canon doctor who material are the doctor who adventure games



Could it be that the Universe made in Series 5 and the Universe before it are both still existing? Don't think of it like a reboot, think of it as a… copy-paste.



I prefer to think that they're both coexisting, with realities conflicting at certain spots.



That universe wasn't just rebooted, it was actually shrinking and disintegrating before our eyes. If there's two universes, one of them is the Doctor Who universe as we know it and one of them is a singularity with no space, no time, no planets, no stars, no minds and no thoughts.



… Good point, actually. I accept I was wrong, I haven't seen Series 5 in quite a while.

>But, as I say, this new effort is not as bad as I expected, and not bad in the same way I expected… but still pretty terrible. Shall we go through the headline mistakes?

>Like so many movies of this ilk, it begins with a big action sequence which means nothing because we don’t care about the characters yet. I am developing a maxim for film writing: a car chase is only interesting if we care about the characters in the cars.

>Well, that's not the case here. So much so that there is a car chase during which I actually fell asleep.

>What is really unforgivable is that the "end of level" monster (i.e. the one at the movie's big climax) is truly, unbelievably crap. I really mean I couldn’t believe it — I was absolutely sure it must metamorphose into something more interesting. But it didn’t. Guys, since H.R, Geiger created the Alien in 1979, this kind of crap is no longer acceptable.

>Also, making your big shock ending the death of Superman is stupid beyond belief. Because literally nobody is going to buy the notion that he’s really dead. So there goes your ending.

>Well, I really didn't expect to be writing about this… Other than the magnificent Wonder Woman, the movies made from DC comics in recent years have been an uninspiring bunch.

>This, it has to be said, is mostly due to Zack Snyder. I'd greatly enjoyed Snyder's work on Dawn of the Dead and, indeed, Watchmen (the greatest DC comic of them all).

>However, as gifted as he is, his movies tend towards empty spectacle, to say the least (see, or rather don't see, Sucker Punch).

>So the recent Superman and Batman franchises, as presided over by Snyder, have wildly missed the mark. But not this one. Which seems to me to be due to the involvement of Joss Whedon (of Buffy and the Avengers fame).

>The reason Zack Snyder's work fails is because he has no gift for characterisation, or at least no interest in it. His stuff is cold.

>With the result that his DC movies have been glum, joyless slug-fests. It doesn't matter how great your action sequences are if the audience isn't engaged with the characters. (Superman v Batman was a classic example of this.)

>But when Joss Whedon enters the equation, all that changes. Whedon is all about characterisation, and fun. He brings warmth and humour.

>Oh… and I apologise for the "spoiler" that Superman is back in this movie. But you never really believed he was dead, did you?

>t's getting embarrassing, all these movies based on Marvel comics. It used to be that I could dismiss at least half of them as junk. Now, to my chagrin, every one is a winner. It makes me seem like I have no critical faculties left. But I prefer the thesis that the films are simply getting better. More specifically, they're getting better written.

>Will these fine Marvel movies never stop?



I would say he's essentially correct about all of that except the idea that the only value action scenes has comes from the characters, but I say that because I'm a big believer in aesthetics, and the ability to tell a story through action set pieces.

That, and I'm skeptical of the idea that you have to sell people on caring about iconic characters. They paid the 13 bucks to go see the Superman movie, they're aware that he's the main character. Being the main or title character already imparts significance to a character regardless of whatever else you do, and if you combine that with simple filming techniques you can sell someone as important and relatable without them ever having to say a word.



This actually reminds me of how I initially felt about The Avengers in 2012. Blockbuster action movies had, by then, become so awful, so rote, and the characters were absolutely unlikable. There are no likable characters in the transformers movies, I know as I've seen them all. The Dark Knight trilogy was moody and well shot and full of interesting set pieces and character moments, but another way to describe it would be cold and dreary, with nothing but dark humor to grease the emotional wheels.

It's easy to forget now in the harsh light of day but back in the grim darkness of the late 2000s, early 2010s, campy and humorous superhero fare was seen as the past. The Dark Knight Trilogy had taken its characters deadly seriously and was praised, rightfully so, and ten years of any other approach had seemed to show that it was correct. In this time there was a Shazam script that was approaching production, and it suddenly got canned because Warner Brothers wanted to have a darker, more serious treatment. Of Captain Marvel.

Then, Avengers comes out and everybody in it is likable and funny. It doesn't matter how good or bad the story is, how flat or dynamic the characters are, they were fun to watch and be around, and that's where the MCU really dug its claws in and flipped the whole thing around. Audiences want good movies, but if they can't get them they'll settle for bad-but-entertaining. When a Warner Brothers/DC movie is bad, it's a bad action movie with melodrama. When a Disney/Marvel movie is bad, it's a bad action movie with comedy. Audiences will always chose comedy with bad action over melodrama with bad action.

>I was braced for a disaster when The Last Jedi came along. But it was simply terrific. It gripped me from the first moments when the good guys (the Resistance) are getting their asses kicked in a space battle.

>The Last Jedi is visually ravishing, and it's also expertly plotted. Whenever the Resistance seems about to succeed, they get knocked back. This gives the film a dark tone which is deliberately reminiscent of the second instalment of the first trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back (another favourite of mine)…Johnson brings a fresh and intriguing sensibility to the Star Wars canon.

>there is a lavishly wonderful ground battle on a snowy* world called Crait where the war machines gouge up streaks of bright red dirt as if the planet itself is bleeding.

>(*Yes, I now know it's not snow on the planet's surface but salt. But I don't give a shit.)

>I am increasingly impressed with Daisy Ridley now that I've seen the range of her acting (she was excellent in Murder on the Orient Express). Here she continues to light up the screen as Rey, a luscious tomboy with a light sabre.

>luscious tomboy

luscious | adjective | lus·cious | \ˈlə-shəs\ | 1. having a delicious taste or smell; sweet 2. sexually attractive; seductive, sexy



He's got a thing for her. The same thing he had for Sophie Aldred.

namely his dick

I remember the "grim darkness", yes. I'm worried that we're sliding back twoards that. The last one has everyone in black millatary uniforms like they put the X-men in back in the 2000s when everything pre-cgi needed to be "modernized" in order to be done "right".

Because this aesthetic really just gets across how "infinite" everything is, right?



Well, okay, black and very dark blue and green. In front of the colorful outfits. Still not terribly inspiring.

Woah, wait, hold on, you guys are getting free DVDs of Poirot over there?


is this a doctor who board? or is it like several things? sorry im new. if its several things does anyone know any good forums for just doctor who?



It's an off-topic board with a side of Doctor Who and it's the best you'll get if you're looking for DW discussion.



It's a Doctor Who board, though we're sometimes loose about staying on-topic.



t. anon pretending to be a sitey to criticise us for being off-topic




That's fine, I'll stick around, but is it really the best? Is there at least a decent place that doesn't mention capeshit or yaoi (no offense)


no man I'm really just looking for forums, I'll shut up about it after this, my bad



Well… do you prefer Moffat or RTD?



I don't really see the point in choosing one, both have their merits, and I'd more happily shit on a lot of JNT era writers than either one of them


We did get to capeshit by way of a Doctor Who-related figure, it's not that bad.



>Is there at least a decent place that doesn't mention capeshit or yaoi (no offense)

The best way to avoid off-topic conversations here is to talk about on-topic stuff.

What did you think of the Twelfth Doctor's era?


Good answer.



I dont have anything new to say about the 12th Doctor, a lot of shit with a few shining pieces of gold here and there, somehow one of the most boring yet most beautiful eras in the franchise


gonna watch black panther tonight, what am i in for?



>Is there at least a decent place that doesn't mention capeshit or yaoi (no offense)

Things are a bit worse than usual because Chibnall keeps filming so secure, and we're deep in the off-season. When the first trailer comes we'll be allowed to move back to /tv/ - we migrated here from 4chan after our general was banned - and things will be more strictly moderated.



Is it a date with GlitterGun?



Just so you know it is official /who/ policy that the Capaldi era is the highest level of kino the show has ever reached. Moffat is unironically our lord and saviour.



Some good bulges, I heard.



You can acquaint yourself with our "culture" here if you wish: http://doctorwhogeneral.wikia.com/wiki/Who_Wiki



>somehow one of the most boring yet most beautiful eras in the franchise

Explain. Sounds like an interesting perspective.

Also he >>29683 is exxagerating a bit, though most of /who/ does like Twelve, that's not "official".



>Is there at least a decent place that doesn't mention capeshit or yaoi (no offense)

What, on the entire internet?



If you like black girls, prepare for heartache. Ditto for if you like black guys. Too many cuties. Too tasty.

Have you ever seen something and you realized that what you were seeing you had actually been wanting all your life, and then in that moment you discovered your longing and had it satisfied in a single glorious event? That was the Rhinoceros cavalry, for me.
