Is that the toy and this one's the real version? Or is this just a different variant of the toy? I'm so confused.


What the fuck is Doctor Who General? I'm here for Octor Who General

Octor Who is ead.



There's two different ones, one by Character Options and one by Seven20 (or something), which is the one in your picture. That one's only being released in America.


Apparently the same thing is happening with the 5" Jodie figure too.



It's a shitshow.



I think that one's the seven20 version, going by >>66546 it matches the more rigid, almost wood grain-like texturing. The character options one has a smoother surface and looks more like scrap metal

why the fuck are they making two different versions of the same product for different locations, though?






the join in the middle is notably different on the two versions

which one is more screen accurate?

It's a shame that they both have super visible screw holes on the body



but why? They've never done this before, it's always been character options



Se7en20's is more accurate which is annoying as fuck because it's only available in America


> Prop designer Arwel Wyn Jones talked through the new sonic; “It’s a privilege to have been asked to redesign the iconic sonic screwdriver for the Thirteenth Doctor and a new generation of audiences. I can’t wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it!”

I genuinely hope it's this

>13 gets trapped in a room and macgyvers a sonic screwdriver to break out



Is the time rotor the orange set of crystals (the one coming in from the right)?

If so, that'd be kino



I think it's more likely the orange crystals are the tip of the sonic screwdriver

unless the time rotor's going to match the sonic



>unless the time rotor's going to match the sonic

I wouldn't be surprised.

>the amount of emphasis getting placed on the sonic

One thing I don't think Doctor Who fans often think about is how fucking unimpressive the idea of the sonic is to anyone who isn't either already a diehard fan or a 7-year-old. Endless wank about LE ICONIC SONIC SCREWDRIVER is not going to woo normies back to the show, it's just a fucking rod that she opens locked doors with.

Hell Bent was kino though


How would you feel if, in the offseason between S11 and S12, an original 4-part serial with David Bradley and the AASIT cast was announced? Not reenacing a lost ep, but an entirely new serial for 1/Susan/Ian/Barbara.



Nilso has their password



That would be a fascinating experiment.



Time's Champion is boring, a mistake, the Doctor should always just be some bloke



>the Doctor should always just be

Let me stop you there.



You can't stop me fucker



Would be cool, won't happen



Would you prefer it to reenacting a lost ep, like Marco Polo (imagine they actually got a surprising amount of budget for the reenactment, like as much as two S11 eps).

It would depend on Bradley One's characterization. If he's going to be a sexist homophobic person again, then no. First Doctor suffered enough from Twice Upon A Time.



I'm not sure. Re-enacting a lost episode might be cool as well and potentially better just for preserving the original style of writing rather than attempting to reproduce it.


>It's a "Doctor Who re-uses actors" episode




Envision it as not even being "canon" with TUAT; closer to the 1DAs than anything else.



>Christel Dee



>not "future Time Ladies"




Re-enacting an old episode is soft of pointless, just animate it

OK, so… everything in the current Dr Who marketing campaign is soapy, meaningless shite… except… is it, really? The rainbow T-shirt… the limp dick sonic… the finely calculated main cast (YBM, YBF, OWM, VOWF)… the whiny regional voice-over, '…never done this before… be my besties…' … tell me this whole kit-n-kaboodle isn't agenda-driven. Tell me it's not about transhumanism, sexual politics and the disenfranchisement of the white community. Someone, please fucking tell me.

Doesn't really seem to fit Jodie, though … based Tardis Wiki admin + Steven Moffat Facebook friend Josiah Rowe asked what VOWF stood for, but it was in the middle of a much longer reply, so there wasn't an answer.



Probably "Very Old White Female" because the Doctor is ancient.



Young Black Man, Young Black Female (Yas isn't black, tho), Old White Man, and…Virtually old white female?

It’s actually insane how much better the show is when the companion has a fun personality like hers. Compare this shit to, like, Martha. Or Clara. Both of them spent most of their time just watching what the Doctor did and acting like he’s fully amazing all the time, but then never quite seeming in over their heads. Clara was the worst because she always seemed to be smarter than the doctor for some reason. She kept being used to explain concepts to the viewer.

Amy worked because

>She’s stubborn and kinda rude

>Never wanted to fuck the doctor

>Had no idea what was going on

>Was always pretty horrified and confused whenever insane sci fi concepts were brought up

She was also my reliablefu. Stayed with her bf for her entire life, and multiple times she waited years for the Doctor. More like my 2d women than the trash that 3D usually has.

Half the main cast is white. The main character of the show is white.

And yet this is still not enough, because now the white people have to be both young, and playing human characters, otherwise it's disenfranchising white people. Letting anyone else have a fucking go at even ONE ASPECT is an attack on white people, apparently. PATHETIC. This is why white grievance is just white supremacy minus the self-awareness, and yet Jim here (like so many others) would probably throw a paddy if you called his comments racist. PA FUCKING THETIC.



That was everyone else's reaction in the thread too.



Yup. It's absurd.

Welp. Stick a fork in it, it's dead.



Literally no one thought it was real.



All he did was make a few edgy jokes.


Am I the only one actually kind of disappointed there's apparently no Daleks? As much as I hate how often they show up, it's going to feel a bit weird not having Jodie meet them in her first series. It almost feels necessary.



There'll be Daleks. They haven't shot the Xmas special yet even.



Wanna bet?



Yeah, lets bet something fun though, what do you have in mind?


I 100% guarantee the Daleks will make some manner of appearance in Series 11/the 2018 Christmas special.



I bet you my copy of the master tapes of Evil of the Daleks.



Of course they'll appear in some form, but I'm talking about a proper story about them.



Ah, I'll concede I don't think there'll be an actual Dalek story. A lot of people are saying there'll be no Daleks at all this year; that's more what I'm addressing.


It's Evil



It's fucking wild that Doctor Who has managed to go this long without a huge social controversy about some figure within it being exposed for misdeeds. I know there was that book covering JNT/Levine's dodgy antics involving Gary Downie but nobody cared.



A Fix for Sontarans?



Jimmy Savile is hardly remembered as a prominent figure within Doctor Who.

Doctor: Other Who



It's better that those things are just hinted at. I don't think I ever want it to be out and out canon that the Doctor is some kind of god, or special timelord, but you can't hint at it. Keeping you guessing over whether he is someone special, or just an asshole who stole a box is part of the fun.




That's a nice design. They should really consider just going back to the cloth faces though, since they're still the creepiest. Maybe if the mask was now some finely woven metal material (you can call it nano tech, if you need to), that gives an impression of the person underneath.


Is Peter Davison really mixed race? what the fuck?



A bit of swarthy Frenchman on his grandfather's side. Absolutely disgusting.

Maybe he was a white guy from the West Indies.



>the whole gender thing sort of gets bypassed really




the comment about being surprised that davison looked british threw me off. If davison was mixed race my whole world would have been upside down



He is mixed race, though. His dad was from Guyana.



It's very unlikely that he's significantly mixed, with that blonde hair. It doesn't tend to work that way.


Is The Girl Who Died the only example of a frock base under siege?



was the dad white? maybe the dad was mixed, making Davison like 3/4 white or something

god the presence of Whizkid in Greatest Show is pure kino. Can you even fucking imagine a NuWho episode dedicating entire scenes to a character who doesn't affect the plot or main characters in ANY way.



Same old BF wishwashy



oh. I havent seen much of Hartnell's era admittedly. Which serial are they in, and is it good?




Every companion in Journey's End outside of Rose and Donna.



Did the girl in Kill The Moon do anything of worth?



Galaxy 4

It's 3/4 lost and does not seem that good

They're namedropped in pandorica Opens ofr the fuck of it



She is very important




Lads. You're not catching my drift. Those characters all interact with the leads/are mates with them/etc. Whizkid exists within a set of scenes that have nothing whatsoever to do with the main Doctor Who narrative and are inserted purely to make a point. That's pure kino.



fair enough haha. I'll probably listen to the Benny Audio, so I look forward to meeting them



Wilson in the Rose novelisation



that's kino to be fair



Legitimately good answer, although the fact it's a novelisation is telling because you'd never see that on sceen.

Greatest Show is fucking incredible, until the final episode is just McCoy juggling and pulling some stupid fucking faces to defeat the boring, motionless villains


It's telling that the Twitch marathon started just a couple of weeks after I finished watching the First Doctor's era, and I was glued to the episodes and loving every minute, but once we reach the later Doctors, who I haven't seen in over half a year, I can't be arsed watching the episodes again. Why is One so much more engrossing than 5-7?



plen: final ep of Greatest Show is bad

patrish: final ep of Greatest Show is a hypnagogic journey into an eternalist Dreamtime



Because the black-and-white era is the best period of Classic Who.



I feel kind of the same, my interest waned a lot after the black and white era ended. It actually picked up quite a bit during the 5th Doctor era for me, which is weird since I don't even like that era that much.

The black and white era has a really fun experimental energy to it, because they were still figuring out what it was they were actually making. An episode like Planet of the Giants just couldn't really happen in any later era of the show.




(cont.) I actually wonder if it's something to do with the larger TARDIS teams and the fact that the stories all kind of lead into each other. You feel like you're journeying with the characters, rather than peeking in on random adventures.



I gave out sometime between Two and Four, but I still watched quite a lot and enjoyed it. But now with 5-7 I feel like I just can't be arsed with this shite


By the time it was set in stone that every episode needed a monster, they had really limited the scope of the kinds of stories they could tell. No Time Meddler. No Enemy of the World.



I do really like how the earliest serials always ended with cliffhanger for the next serial. They should bring that back. It could replace the "next time" trailer.




These things also made it fundamentally more fun to follow in the marathon with thousands of other people, many of whom hadn't actually watched it before. There is far more of a sense of discovery.



>Black Orchid is one of the best serials in years

Hmm I wonder why




>in Greatest Show, the Doctor conjures a sword out of thin air by throwing an object up into the air

The last episode of Greatest Show honestly feels like a lost link to the Hartnell era where shit like Celestial Toymaker happened, and it wasn't necessarily a bad thing if there was "wasted time" or repetition in an episode because our relationship with television wasn't quite the same. Also in the sense of a ridiculously ambitious concept (in this case, a battle with gods that exist outside of time) being done on a measly as fuck budget, and thus translated down into the logic of theatre.

I don't think it's actually a bad watch either because it's totally self-aware of the absurdity of doing a pedestrian magic act in this situation, McCoy is pretty funny, and when the banter flows with an exchange like "your time is at an end" "A piece of rope has two ends!" it seems like he might actually be bending concepts and reality. After all the whole premise of magic is that symbols equal reality. I think it is a fair argument that the Doctor is performing legitimate magic in that sequence, going off the logic of the rest of the story and the nature of the realm he's entered.

It's also precisely because he's entered a place outside of time that he can just fuck about, and also that he becomes omniscient of everything that will happen, knowing just when the medallion will arrive. Simultaneously, the culmination of the implicit "the family represent the forever unsatisfied viewing public" commentary is that the Doctor decides to brazenly waste their (and thus our) time, which is kino enough to justify the repetitiveness and lack of plot automatically.



She was quite poorly cast. Didn't really command authority.

Women are directly adapted to act as the nurses and educators of our early childhood, for the simple reason that they themselves are childish, foolish, and short-sighted—in a word, are big children all their lives, something intermediate between the child and the man, who is a man in the strict sense of the word. Consider how a young girl will toy day after day with a child, dance with it and sing to it; and then consider what a man, with the very best intentions in the world, could do in her place.

Should the Brig have been killed off there in Battlefield, or are you alright with how they did it in the end?

I'm kind of averse to the idea of a heroic sacrifice for the Brig; the whole logic of it feels almost too cheesy and self-indulgent to suit a character like him. But it would have been a pretty damn good death scene.



Having him survive adds a little something to the end of the episode, another moment, so I like it I guess. "You were supposed to die in bed" is the emotional climax of that supposed sacrifice



The Brig being too professional to allow himself to be killed off in a silly way like that was a nice touch.

Yeah, you summed it up pretty well. The Brig is beloved precisely because he doesn't fit into that thick-headed action hero logic.

Such a kino scene.

Except for Ace flaccidly calling him a scumbag and then doing nothing. That was awkward.




Battlefield is such an enjoyable story. Plus Ace is really hot in that outfit.


I think the Destroyer's prosthetics are actually still quite impressive. Could pass today with the right lighting.



That wasn't too awkward. She was more concerned with checking on the Doctor.

What was awkward was how he hit the Doctor in the chest (?) and that somehow knocked him out

If Chibnall truly wanted to make the Doctor Who that we need now, he would be telling stories about changing the world and the unfixedness of the way things are, not pitifully regurgitating comfortable clichés and platitudes about "hope".

Very strange. I just decided to check BritBox and just listen/watch some of the existing stories from S1-S6. To my surprise, I discovered that audiotracks for random missing episodes (with no particular order or reason) have been uploaded. For example - two episodes of the Smugglers are up, but not the other two. When someone plays one of these, a generic photo with the Tardis and the DW logo are there, while one can listen to the audiotrack.

So these stories have one or more missing episodes represented:

Galaxy 4

The Myth Makers

The Smugglers

The Highlanders

The Macra Terror

The Faceless Ones

The Ice Warriors

The Space Pirates

These audiotracks weren't there the last time I checked.

What did she do that made her so infamous?

Personally, my headcanon is that she was an intergalactic pirate. I haven't decided whether she was one yet or not during her appearance in The Rings Of Akhaten, maybe that was the beginning of her infamous career.



I agree. Very well-articulated. Incidentally, that last episode of Greatest Show was my first episode of Doctor Who.

Sarah Jane Smith

Jackie Tyler

Captain Jack



Craig Owens

Brian (Rory's dad)

Missy (she was a companion in WEaT, fight me)

Bradley Walsh's character. Because he's played by Bradley Walsh. I dont even need to see him in action to know he's based


Sara Kingdom > Sarah Jane Smith

Interesting companions were the exception rather than the rule back then. She had a more distinct personality in Season 11 when they leaned harder on the Women's Lib thing but when Tom came it it quickly just became a display of chemistry, and it was all the more kino for it desu. In stories like Brain of Morbius scenes that would've been unremarkable with any other companion become unbridled kino.

>Can someone explain the seemingly soft reboot that occured when season 5 happened? It's kind of like season's 1-4 just never happened, except for a super quick meaningless reference here and there.


>Yeah I understand that with a new showrunner taking over they wanna do their thing with it. And I didn't know the Master a return so that's actually pretty cool. I just think there could have some cool story stuff, or at least some amazing fan service, if they brought back Rose and the Human 10th Doctor from the parallel universe or something dope like that. Not a whole arc, mind you, but maybe an epsiode or two.


I've been wanting to get into the Briggs Finish part of Doctor Who, but don't quite know how to actually listen to them.

Do you sit on the couch and just listen to them like that?

Or do you listen to a story while e.g. cycling?

So, what does the community on Reddit think is the best way to 'experience' audio dramas?


>7 is my favourite Doctor. In the books - most fans don't read them, you know? - he like, kills a lot of people to save even more people. And he manipulates everyone, even his companions, to save the day. Yeah, I guess you could say he's "morally grey" or something. It's like Rorschach, or Deadpool, or Rick from Rick and Morty. Pretty epic huh?

It's never occurred to me how bizarre watching the show must be at times for the people who don't follow production news. Can you imagine going from S4 to S5 without knowing the Showrunner had changed?

It must be pretty jarring.

Nice work Tom.


Every time Briggs Finish comes up in this sub the comments make me sad. Briggs Finish has been making quality doctor who for years before modern series started. Even tennant did work for them years before he was the doctor. There output is often better then the show itself, and in this off year they give us things like new ten and war doctor stories just for starters. And yet all you people who have never given one a chance just complain left and right



it's funny


Better than the majority of Modern Who, Mcganns performance on audio is better than any Televised Doctor since Eccleston. The audios have done more for Doctor Who than televised Who ever could. In fact I am currently going through the audios and the 8th Doctor novels and it is insane how much further the spin-off media take the concept of 'Doctor Who' than the tv show does.

i dont know who tom is but thanks fellas


In Paul Cornell’s Four Doctors comic, we see a glimpse of the​ universe where the Tenth Doctor stays in his Time Lord Victorious phase and abandons Wilf in the radiation chamber. This alt-Ten eventually becomes ruler of the universe, reigning supreme over all time and space until meeting his end at the hands of a Raxarocoricofallicoptarorian assassin.

In parallel, Lance Parkin’s Father Time shows the last surviving Time Lord as supreme emperor of the universe for a thousand years, ruling from the Needle through his ruthless secret police and the power of fear. On the day of his daughter’s birth, he is assassinated by an uprising; his daughter Miranda goes on to be adopted by the Eighth Doctor, and in The Gallifrey Chronicles it’s baaaasically confirmed that this emperor is the Doctor's destiny.

Both these stories seem to be a peek into the same future, where the Tenth Doctor becomes Time Lord Victorious and emperor of the universe. In fact, since Father Time portrays this as the definite future of the universe Eight lives in, we could even say that the Emperor Victorious is the Doctor's "original" future; something must have changed the timeline to turn him off of this path. I hypothesize that it's the return of Gallifrey in The End of Time: in particular, the interference of the mysterious Time-Lock-busting woman in white.

If this timeline change did come so late in Ten’s life, when River Song described “her Doctor” in Silence in the Library, she was actually talking about the Time Lord Victorious. He was the one to marry her, while our Doctor only said hasty vows in a collapsing bubble universe; he was the one to give her a sonic screwdriver, which is clearly a modified version of Ten's, not Eleven's or Twelve's. This idea is quietly supported by her statements in the episode, which suggest that her Doctor still wears Ten's face: for instance, she has to ask him whether he’s lived through the Byzantium, and she says he’s like an “early photograph” of her Doctor.

And what kind of future!Ten does this describe? Who was the man that scared away the Vashta Nerada with just his name?

>Now my Doctor, I’ve seen whole armies turn and run away. And he’d just swagger off back to his Tardis and open the doors with a snap of his fingers. The Doctor in the Tardis. Next stop, everywhere.

Next stop, everywhere. Forget the consequences. Forget the “fixed points”. Forget the rules. Because the Laws of Time are Ten's, and they will obey Him.

Hartnell? Maybe Troughton, but I feel like literally everyone likes Troughton so it's just kind of redundant to talk about him.

Like it's baffling enough that Nicholas "We Love Drashigs" Briggs and friends think these ideas are good, but it's even harder to believe that there is a sizable audience out there who actually wants to hear what Lady Christina and Donna's mum are up to.

The linked article isnt overly interesting, but this bit is:

>American audiences won’t even have to wait for the episode to come around to our time zone, as the August 31 premiere will be simulcast on the BBC and BBC America at the same time.

August 31st seems overly early to me. It could just be a mistake, but what do you guys think?



That seems nuts. Just one month away? I didn't even think they'd finished filming entirely.



I think the filming now is for the Christmas special.



to be fair, filming for finales has overlapped slightly into transmission of the first episode before.

On the other hand, I just checked, and August 31st is a Friday. Perhaps they meant September 31? It's a saturday, and most of the series would air in October



There was fake snow in Cardiff, so people jumped to conclusions. They have a couple of weeks of filming left for the finale. Christmas special films in August

When are we going to get started on the hype train?



Boomers eat up the Classic pandering stuff, maybe zoomers eat up the New pandering stuff. The licence is maybe costly/difficult to maintain and BF are determined to squeeze every feasible penny out of it that they can.


When Chibnall announces he's leaving after S13.



It already departed



You think BF would try to do intresting stuff with their New Who licence like "Simm Master adventures" or Kaagh the Slayer adventures, and not "the Extra #25 adventures"


I had a dream last night that Clive’s son from Rose was in Class and I’ve never even seen Class before








For the most part they have with War Master and River Song but they also had box sets of shitty new who aliens vs old doctors as well as multiple seasons of the Churchill whitewashing series



there's nothing to be hyped about



There’s a cute doctor and cute companion




>The licence is maybe costly/difficult to maintain and BF are determined to squeeze every feasible penny out of it that they can.

I hadn't thought of that before. It's probably a casting issue. They would rather be making 10, 11, 12, Simm, etc. audios but those actors are probably hard to get so they gotta settle for nobodies.



Yeah, War Master and River Song were good uses of the licence, I somewhat like the Classic Doctors New Monsters thing, but I don't get why they don't just intigrate the new monsters into the main line




I think it's more than that. Most of the New Series stuff is legitimately bad. It all stems from the inherent issues with BF and why most of their Classic stuff is shit too. If they had better writers they'd have creative ideas that didn't rely just on "oh we need Tennant/Smith/etc. to actually make good stuff".


How fuckin based would it be if we got an episode where Jodie thinks the witches are aliens, and almost joins in with the hysteria, worrying what the alien witches are capable of. In the end it's a pure historical, the "witches" are just ordinary people.

I know it's an obvious plot twist, but it could make great drama in my opinion.


The JNT Doctors and 8 were so bad until BF fixed their characters and gave them kino GOAT stories



>but I don't get why they don't just intigrate the new monsters into the main line

That bothers me too. Their Doctor Who range is already split far too much, it's really convoluted. They should have released the Classic Doctors New Monsters as episodes in the main range. They could have boxed them together and sold them separately for those that cream over boxsets still.


>Most of the New Series stuff is legitimately bad.

I wouldn't know :^)

Well, I kinda know. I preordered the first War Doctor boxset and War Master boxset. Both of them were kind of a waste of good talent. Some of the decisions they made with the War Master stories still baffle me.


File: aeb86f8890e830b⋯.jpg (108.07 KB, 1024x1024, 1:1, fdde6ecfc8f0e9ba8ae462a853….jpg)

Reminder the first New Series audio was actually a Torchwood audio! I preordered it and everything back in the day. Briggs Finish actually got the Torchwood and nu UNIT licence before the legit NewWho licence, something a bit lost to time now.



Yeah lmao the War Master set is baffling, although it's not outright bad like the WarDoc stuff. Still, they've managed to get two legit good ranges out of the licence, and there's sporadically good stuff in some of the other ranges like the 10DAs.

I preordered the WarDoc set too. What a chump I was. I remember being beside myself with hype.



and to think, starting with such humble origins, they would go on to make an eccleston story with Nick Briggs doing a kermit impression playing Eccleston. Incredible



I was in Thorax when the War Doctor range was announced and we were losing our minds.



Didn’t Briggs throw 3 scripts together in a weekend because they didn’t want to wait and put effort in, in order to make as many Hurt box sets as possible while he was alive?

War Doctor, Fourth Doctor, Eighth Doctor and Dark Eyes ranges all have a Briggs Dalek story in their first season



it's rare that cute along can make me hype but I hope they're the saving grace of the series.


What are your favourite New Series Briggs Finish audios /who/? Off the top of my head, mine are…

Torchwood - Broken, Ghost Mission, Corpse Day, The Torchwood Archive, Orr

The Diary of River Song - Signs, Five Twenty-Nine

The Tenth Doctor Adventures - Infamy of the Zaross, Time Reaver

Classic Doctors, New Monsters - The Sontaran Ordeal

Eighth Doctor time war shit - A Heart on Both Sides


Something like that, that was explicitly the reason for hiring very quick workmanlike writers nearly exclusively to write for the range iirc.


Thoughts on The War Machines?



The show isnt neccessarily going to be good just because bradley walsh is cute



I haven't listened to any of those ranges, neo.






I enjoyed quite a bit of that War Doctor audio in East Germany, wished the Statsi guy became a companion then died in some cruel and unfitting way


remember when the master saw a bit of the time war on a from the safety of a living room and it scared him so much that he decided to turn into a baby?



oh no no no ahahahahahaha



What are your thoughts on it?



I haven't watched it for maybe over a decade now.



Remember when the Master kept making a guy create paradoxs so he could fuel a machine then he saw the Time Lords lose some battles so he peaced the fuck out?



Why did you want to know /who/'s thoughts on it?


Remember when the Master…just, the Master.



Because there's a new Torchwood audio with WOTAN and it made me think of the War Machines.



>new Torchwood audio with WOTAN

Okay, this is Briggscraftian


Chibnall… isn't a funny man, is he?



Remember when the Master spend an entire audio making wine for next to no reason and we had to listen to his shitty friend try to get pussy?

[spoilered]I liked that.[/spoiler]

The Heavenly Paradigm was the best story in the boxset (excluding the ending), the Time Lord weapons being caught where they were was genuinely an interesting/entertaining idea.

The Sky Man was the second best, but the fact that BF included a Master-lite audio on a 4-audio War Master boxset is frankly evil. Also it was confusing because they made it sound/seem like cybermen but I think they were meant to be OC Donut Steel.

The Good Master was incomprehensible.

Beneath the Viscoid was generic Briggs, but Jacobi made it fun.



There are more holy grails off that list than there are on it.

matt strevens, executive producer I think?



Producer. Produces.


Cats are you around




what do non-showrunner producers even do on doctor who? I've never really understood. I can keep track of showrunners and writers, but I've never been very clued in about secondary producers.



Daleks Masterplan is impossible to find every episode because episode 7 wasnt sold overseas. Keep that in mind the next time you post fake news






A lot, but it's not as immediately obvious and tangible to people outside the industry (same reason actors are more famous than writers in a lot of ways). Think about the hundreds of decisions and actions that need to be taken to transfer ideas on a page onto an actual episode of television, made together by hundreds of people.

Julie Gardner ran Doctor Who in everything but the scriptwriting which was RTDs job



Can you do me a small favour that will take probably eight minutes of your time



Not true, Paul Vanezis believes that the BBC could have created audition prints of the Feast of Steven which could have survived. Very unlikely though.



what is it?



I don't actually need one done, I was just curious.





I wish I could keep track of producers/directors more. It's fun to know which writers wrote which episodes, and which showrunners, etc., and being able to speculate and compare like that. But when it comes to producers and directors all I really know is Gardner and Talaylay.


>Yellow Fever and How to Cure It

Jesus CHRIST Robert! How did he get away with this?



Do you feel there's a big difference between Matt and Capaldi Who? Do you feel there's even a distinction between the 2013 Specials and previous Matt Who? The producer is a massive, massive part of that. Brian Minchin is a big part of why the Capaldi era was so kino. It's not even just the actually getting episodes made things, they brainstorm and help translate the writer showrunners ideas and ideally improve and sharpen them. If you've read The Writer's Tale you'll understand how vital Gardner was to a degree as well.


When Neo saw the Rogue One reference in the 50th novel he came so hard and so long he forgot where he was, and his cumshot travelled across the room and impacted on his copy of Hero With a Thousand Faces, rendering it unreadable.



My wellworn copy is back home alas.



I suppose it's like what I said earlier about how weird watching the show would be if you're not aware of Showrunners. I notice these shifts in quality/aesthetic, and I recognise probably all of the producers' names, but I don't know when their tenure starts and stops so I have very little understanding of how they affect the show.

As for directors, I wish the show included their names in the titles.

>[episode title]

>written by [writer]

>directed by [director]



>As for directors, I wish the show included their names in the titles.

Moffat's overblown ego ruining the show once again, it seems.



Yeah I get you. Who has had enough house styles that a lot of directors are difficult to distinguish so it comes down to hard to understand from our vantage point things (how well the actors did on the day, etc.) but there are some recognisable ones…Talalay (although she's pretty chameleonesque), Harper, Gough, Haynes, Hurran, etc.

TV in general is much less director-focused than film for a bunch of reasons. TV is a writer's medium; they're the ones steering the ship and directors on most shows just adhere to the house style decided by whoever did the pilot. Who affords more freedom given how anthology-esque it is but the type of directors Who gets aren't the type to go hard with that.

Are you a big classic who guy? The producer relationship is much easier to understand there since there was no showrunner.


File: 041b66b7768bde2⋯.png (54.53 KB, 142x188, 71:94, 8reddit.png)

Anyone else think Eight is SOOOOO GOAT and kino? He's easily the most kino, most canon Doctor. I spend the whole year waiting in anticipation for the next GOAT Eight box set to come out because I know it will be amazingly canon and kino. Nick Briggs is a GOAT writer and kino showrunner and it's honestly so annoying that he's never been asked to write for the revived show, maybe they're just scared his episodes will be so GOAT that he'll outshine them all with how kino his ideas are. 90% of the time, Briggs Finish is far more kino than NuWho anyway, since all of it is so canon and GOAT. I only have faith in Briggs to bring me GOAT kino now and I eagerly await the next GOAT box set he brings, filled with memorable, kino stories.






Yeah but my grip on eras is even worse when it comes to classic Who. I know JNT, Verity, Whittaker, Holmes, Adams, etc. I know roughly when their eras start and stop but I can't pinpoint it to exact stories like I can with the new series.

I really need to get around to another watchthrough.



Honestly my least favourite part about the twitch stream is seeing people try and discuss "seriously" and shill Briggs Finish. It's always filled with people saying "FUN FACT:" and giving some random information like if some actor was in eastenders or whatever. Then you have the redditors constantly talking about how good BF is and saying such and such character returns in the audios because let's be honest, every character has



You can tell when Verity left because the next producer barely sold the show so there’s a large increase in missing stories

5 hours.



However, I also think that while the Doctor is "above" his companions in terms of knowledge and wisdom, he's friendly enough that he and his companions are generally equals. I just don't think that excuse works for anything beyond a deep friendship.


I enjoyed The Witch's Familiar a lot more on a second viewing.

Watched it with subtitles because so much of Julian Bleach's dialogue was inaudible on first viewing.

It was… alright, I suppose.

Yet another very talky episode, where characters exposite and emote at each other while supposedly ruthless killers stand and watch.

The Doctor's "plan" (get hooked up to a life sucking machine and hope that one of the friends you think are dead actually ISN'T dead and comes in at the last minute to zap the machine to which you are attached) is straight out of the Madame Kovarian school of ¤¤¤¤ing dreadful ideas.

I quite liked some of the Missy stuff, mostly with Clara, but when she's taking EVERYTHING as a massive joke it's impossible to build any sense of tension. Hope she's not back for a while as I'm getting really bored with her sitcom slapstick shenanigans.

The best stuff was Clara trapped inside the Dalek and some of the Doctor / Davros stuff. Wasn't keen on the revelation that Davros has two perfectly functioning eyes, but I loved the revelation that "what you see is what you get" in that there isn't much of him at all that isn't visible above his chair.

Loved Capaldi whizzing around in Davros's chair although, again, there was a real lack of a feeling of danger.

In fact, the Daleks haven't felt properly dangerous now since… probably Journey's End, of the top of my head. They just sit on the spot, with additional weakness upon additional weakness added to their list of weaknesses.

I miss the energy of RTD's time in charge. While I still prefer what's being made at the moment to pretty much anything in Matt Smith's time, it does feel slow, samey, and, above all, exceptionally talky.

What the hell ever happened to "show, don't tell"?

Probably looking at 6/10 for this episode, 7/10 for the story as a whole.

ETA - At least this week didn't have a 5 minute "comedy" scene sucking the energy out of the middle. Oh, and the actors (with the exception of the more wildly OTT Gomez stuff, like her little dance every time a Dalek fired its gun. I HATED the bit where she was "dancing" to the Daleks shouting "You will tell us". I mean HATED. It just looks ¤¤¤¤ing stupid) were all outstanding, particularly Capaldi and Coleman.

Well, Colin Baker is the actor who plays the 6th Doctor. So his "Hmm" response to the statement that "The Seventh Doctor is taking over the main range!" is comical. He is concerned he's out of a job and will have to scavenge the streets.



I thought Nilso had a penis.



you crack me up sometimes morph



he does. but he also has periods


Akhaten would be the worst S7 episode if it weren't for journey being shittier

I will never get over how contrived and unprovoked matt's big speech is, and there are plebs who actually think it's some big emotional moment when it's completely unearned and there's no reason for him to be doing it




This post reeks of morph.



I never thought it was a stretch at all that the Doctor had pent-up emotion, it's kind of just implicit.

Bizarre opinion. Who is this, neo?

>I will never get over how contrived and unprovoked matt's big speech is

It did nothing though, so it's fine.

>and there are plebs who actually think it's some big emotional moment when it's completely unearned and there's no reason for him to be doing it

That is genuinely quite puzzling.



you'll have to ask the nil to spill, i don't know



Akhaten is my fav s7 episode by a decent margin; I resent the implication I'm a contrarian!


To anyone who has judged our new Doctor, perhaps unfairly, just stop for a moment and see how much she has already given to fandom at SDCC. She has totally embraced fandom, cosplay and the legacy of the show and I genuinely think we’re in for something special with her Doctor.



What has Jodie given me exactly.


Angels Take Manhattan isn't bad. In fact it's to some extent good.



>the legacy of the show

I will eat Nilso's hat if she's even seen series 10.



She has given you the gift of another Season of Doctor Who.



It certainly has more meat on the bone than most of S7.



>Akhaten is my fav s7 episode by a decent margin

There's nothing wrong with that. Not because Akhaten is particularly great, but because S7 doesn't have any amazing episodes.

The world-building and aesthetics of the episode are quite nice.



seeing her interact in interviews etc. has unironically given me more hope/hype than the teaser and trailer did



Akhaten ticks a lot of my boxes - lots of practical and new alien designs, music having a big focus, diagetic music, false gods, Matt really going for it, potential of storytelling being a plot point, etc. I also think it's particularly well-made on a lot of levels.



She's seen the best episode. The one she's in.






Claudia locked her twitter account and changed the username and @



Fuck. I'm really worried.

Claudia's music channel is still up but her personal channel is completely empty.





tell me you downloaded celestia at some point, neo. please :(


the person we've been cyberbullying for years has closed her accounts!! I wonder why



>Claudia's music channel is still up but her personal channel is completely empty.



It's still up, on her music channel. This is really worrying though. She's been very depressed and suicidal lately.



if she's moved her twitter rather than deleted it, maybe she just wants to lay low for a bit, which could help things. i hope she's alright though


Looks like her last online activity was ten hours ago, just general tweeting about TV.



What's the difference between moving and deleting twitter



Her twitter account is still there with all her tweets just with a different name and @. She’s probably had people sending abuse recently and is trying to lose their attention


Dan's twitter is still up and he was just general chatting about the MCU ten hours ago too. :/ :/ :/ I really hope she's just cleared off the internet for some reason for a while.



moving keeps all your old tweets, just changes the username



Oh - how did you figure that out?



Maybe she just hid all her YouTube videos too, not actually deleting them?

I saw a new name on my twitter feed and scrolled through some of their tweets. She retweeted someone else responding to one of her tweets and the link in that tweet used her old username. Her account is locked so only people following can see her tweets at the moment



She has more reason to deride Foreman than all of us.


Oh, thank god. Wonder why she did what she did with her YT channel though.



Never mind the wiki, she might delete herself at this rate.

Neo right now



this is the link to My Endoscopy Procedure, courtesy of the wiki:


i think you used to be able to tell the difference between deleted and privated videos, but not anymore



Her last tweet (she’s retweeted a few other things since) is about her two favourite fandoms being homophobic and making her tired



I have her music saved at any rate.



This is unironically why homophobes like Nilso need to stop.



DW and Emmerdale? Glad this seems to be about fandom stuff and not personal. Really hope she puts her videos back up at some point. We'll see I guess.



Nilso verged Claudia


The doctor who homophobia seems to be the American Doctor Who twitter account tweeting a picture of Jodie and Alex Kingston with “the Doctor and her wife” and then deleting it and reuploading it with “Jodie Whittaker with the Doctor’s wife”



that makes sense





I was looking forward to streaming her reaction to the trailer and sdcc stuff :(


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

figgin kino m8


Did BBCA actually address the "doctor and her wife" deletion thing or is it still radio silence from them?


I'd support this because I think it's the only way they could get away with reintroducing the concept of the pure historical in NuWho, have an episode where we're led to think it's an alien historical but it's a ruse.


She changed her Tumblr name, but it's up and visible to anyone with an account. http://pinkpurplebluexxx.tumblr.com/

I really hope that theory that they're at the motel where MLK was murdered turns out to be false because I cannot imagine them handling that remotely well in a million years. Even the shot of the team standing there like they're about to get into a fucking dance-off is embarrassing.

Give me a quick rundown on the Claudia drama


That anon who got the Vworp Vworp Alan Moore issue: could you upload the whole interview? Pretty pls?


Just finished Broadchurch S3

I enjoyed it a lot

If I had to sum up each series as an emotion, it would be sadness, rage and disgust. Each series does something unique and there’s a different ‘purpose’ to the story, which I thought was really smart of chibs.

The core purpose of S3 was to be confronting about male/female sexual dynamics, particularly negative male sexual culture - and I would say that it succeeded. Virtually all of the new male characters are genuinely shitty people with fucked up ideas of sex and relationships, and it’s not shy of calling them all out on it - and it made for a good narrative. I think that once again, chibs picked the perfect person to be the culprit. It being a kid who was forced into it by a bad role model really drives the point home that the whole series was about.

Although, I don’t know how accurate the “dad gives son porn and continues the cycle” narrative is - I thought most kids discover porn on their own through the internet because of inevitable curiosity, it seemed a little out of date to show nudie mags and porn DVDs. I don't know of anyone who had their dad show them porn, maybe I’m just oblivious to it since I’m not involved in that culture.

I’ve come around on S2 a bit now, in terms of broadchurch as a whole it definitely makes more sense for joe to have gotten off. It allowed for characterkino that wouldn’t have been possible if they had gotten a happy ending, and happy endings really aren’t the point of the show at all.

S2 was still unpleasant to watch, but that was the intentional direction of that series. I appreciate it as being necessary for the overall narrative. All 3 seasons together work well as one relatively neat story - even though the case of S3 is largely unrelated to everything else and I found the events happening to the original cast as more interesting, the case still tied back to previous events in terms of things like making sure the investigation wasn’t compromised so it couldn’t mess up a trial.

S3’s in a bit of a weird spot where it’s trying to tell a new story, but still has an obligation to continue following the lives of the original cast. As a result of sharing airtime, the new characters didn’t get as much focus and ultimately I didn’t feel the same emotional connection to them that I do the original cast. Most of the original cast sans the detectives and the latimers only had a couple of scenes each in the whole series, but their stories were all wrapped up nicely. Half of the original characters didn’t show up at all, perhaps because there simply wasn’t time or place to make them relevant. If they could have shown up for the church service at the end it would have been nice, though.

My favourite part of S3 was Mark talking to Joe Miller. I really liked what they did with mark and beth in general, it made for some good characterkino.



oh and also S1 > S3 > S2

>"On planet Earth it's generally taken for granted that it's a bad thing to introduce into a narrative some last-minute solution that was totally unexpected and unheralded … The unexpected, unadvertised solution which kisses it all better is known as a deus ex machina – literally, a god from the machine. And a god from the machine is what the Doctor now is,"

>But the sonic screwdriver? I don't think so. Doctor Who's science is pixel thin.

>"into an amalgam of Mother Teresa, Jesus Christ (I laughed my socks off during the Titanic episode when two golden angels lifted the Doctor heavenwards) and Tinkerbell," said Pratchett. "There is nothing he doesn't know, and nothing he can't do. He is now becoming God, given that the position is vacant … Perhaps they should start transmitting the programme on Sundays."

>"pure professionally-written entertainment, even if it helps sometimes if you leave your brain on a hook by the door". "I might shout at the screen again, but I will be watching on Saturday," he admitted. "After all, when you've had your moan you have to admit that it is very, very entertaining, with its heart in the right place, even if its head is often in orbit around Jupiter."

>[…] On a Doctor Who related note, I suppose that was why I was never happy with Russell T Davies's writing on Doctor Who. One of the main reasons for that was that when I'd seen that he was going to be doing something which features Daleks versus Cybermen, I thought, wow, you'd have to be unbelievably clumsy to make a mess of that. It's just so obvious, isn't it? It should be brilliant. And it wasn't brilliant. It wasn't even adequate.

<It wasn't a fair fight, was it?

>It wasn't. It seemed like the entire story had just been based around the desire to announce Daleks versus Cybermen in the Radio Times. So what I wanted was something that would have been much bugger and full of strange reverses that were due to the nature of the abilities of the combatants. I'm not quite sure where that would have gone, but it probably would have been quite spectacular and cosmic.

<Sticking with Russell T Davies, it's interesting that he relaunches it with the idea of the Time Lords losing a Time War at the heart of his Doctor Who.

>I didn't watch many of the episodes. But I'm afraid that I really found the writing in a lot of the earlier ones not to my taste. I'm not criticising it, because I've got very cranky and extreme tastes. Obviously the audience loved a lot of that stuff, so it's not for me to knock it. But just personally, I've seen a few of the Steven Moffat ones. The Matt Smith ones. I found them more consistent. There are less gaping plot holes that are thinly papered over with a little bit of pseudo-scientific waffle. The stories seem to me to be better constructed. Yes, there are still those bits where you don't have to look at it too closely or it'll unravel, but I think that, for example, with his playing around with the effects of time travel, it seems to be a lot more clearly thought through than in the Russell T Davies episodes.

Alan Moore confirmed for Moffchad. (The interview was held in 2010 btw.)

thanks neo

I didn't mention it but I thought hardy's tinder date was a neat little commentary on how weird and unnatural tinder culture is compared to 'traditional' dating, as a little aside to the overall point of S3 being sexual dynamics



I'm very surprised to see Moore having an in-depth views on modern Doctor Who at all. Previously, I thought his opinion was almost entirely summed up with him saying that everything past Hartnell was shit.

>I'm not quite sure where that would have gone, but it probably would have been quite spectacular and cosmic.

This a pretty pleb opinion to be honest. Hard to imagine he's enough of a nerd to get excited about the idea of the Daleks and Cybermen fighting each other.

>Hard to imagine he's enough of a nerd to get excited about the idea of the Daleks and Cybermen fighting each other.

>wrote comics about the Time Lords having a 4-dimensional war

>not enough of a nerd

He probably liked the idea specifically for its potential to be mind-bending and imaginative, rather than for the hollow nostalgic pleasure your average anorak got out of it.



>>famous for capeshit

He's famous for hating capeshit too, so it's bizarre to see him gagging for it in 2010.



But his gripe with RTD's handling of it is basically the same as his gripe with modern capeshit, it's not challenging the imagination of the viewers.



100%. I like your take in your big post tbw, very similar to mine.



How would a "spectacular and cosmic" battle between Daleks and Cybermen challenge anything? It would still be fanservice, just with more explosions


How do people even watch S3 of Broadchurch? I've seen all of S1 and S2 but only watched the first 15 minutes or so of S3. The show is depressing already, but that just felt way too dark.


I've finally snapped, I'm writing a Simm Master and Kaagh the Slayer story



I like dark shit



Like he said, by actually exploring the contrast in ideology between the two factions. I couldn't tell you how specifically that would show up on screen, but I'm not Alan Moore.



>I couldn't tell you how specifically that would show up on screen, but I'm not Alan Moore.

Being Alan Moore wouldn't help you much here, since he also said "I'm not quite sure where that would have gone".



Great post.



i think they'd need to put a lot of thought into what makes cybermen and daleks different, given that they're both cyborgs seeking to eliminate their human flaws. daleks obviously went a lot further and should be the strongest, so it'd be interesting to have the cybermen defeat the daleks since it'd sort of prove their philosophy wrong given that the most human-like of the two would win.

Is the time a consistent problem? What would work better for you in future?


Getting close to 751




It's pretty inconsistent honestly, but in general unless I'm tired or have reason to be up early (in which case I'd go to bed earlier) I still try to go to sleep around 1-2 because I don't want to relapse into staying up all night

starting at midnight is a decent compromise between time zones I think



Most people are pretty mum on the time issue so I don't know if the britanons and USanons might even be amenable to changing it more. I completely get where you're coming from. I'll ask people on tonight more about the best times.
