>This is the CinemaSins approach to film criticism. Looking for plot holes to expose the flaws in a film is a meme that ultimately destroys any ability to enjoy film. If you're looking for plot holes, you will usually find them, especially in a blockbuster film with many moving parts.

>also the "casino plot was pointless" criticism actively angers me, because it has a THEMATIC point. It's like, people don't actually want movies to be about things, they just want an empty calorie plot where the good guys win and the bad guys lose.

/who/ BOOK CLUB - SHIT TRIPS: VOLUME 2.5

FANFIC EDITION

=====

A curious parallel between today's two main entries is that they both involve links to the work of another writer. It's almost as if they were cleverly ordered this way on purpose, but I wouldn't be the one to ask about that. There is also more to feast upon for anyone who can't get enough of Time Lord incarnations based on real world actors.

TODAY'S STORIES:

Friends, Lovers or Nothing

>by Nacho

What if the Mary Elizabeth Winstead Doctor had another story after ‘Perfect Authentic Cadence’, but from a different author’s hand?

Framing Story: Part 7 - Let Them Breathe

>by Neo

The Revolution Games

>by Morphant

What if the Shabogans led a coup against the Council of Time Lords in a story featuring a Sarah Bolger Rani and a Tilda Swinton Doctor from the far future, connected to but set before the ‘Course Correction’ and ‘Nacho Doctor’ stories from this anthology?

Read, enjoy, discuss, reflect, shitpost.

Got questions about a story? Was there something you thought was GOAT? Memeyness that made you laugh? Let us all know.

If you wrote a story and you want to answer/ask questions in authorial capacity, consider a temporary trip.

Make it obvious which story you're posting about, & browse sensibly if you don't want to get spoiled on any stories. Hide this post with Filter -> Post+ to hide all replies.

It might be a growing problem for Briggs Finish, a lot of their actors are quite old.

They had to cancel Jago and Litefoot, which was quite popular, due to that.

>>80143

Interesting idea for different authors to use each other’s fanfic creations, bit of a motif in this anthology really. I prefer the more standalone stuff by both authors but certainly an interesting exercise.

>>80146

BF have been looking at phasing out the main range anyway; once one of the triumvirate goes I imagine the other two will just fork into their own solo ranges. The stuff they're doing for the first two Doctors is more acclaimed than the stuff they're doing for 5/6/7 so I'm not worried about that.

He got Bradley, but he is on the edge


 No.80151

>>80146

Why do you think that they've got like 4 or 5 series of Tom stories lined up already? We've got his current range, the range with a new companion and then two more with them already confirmed. It's like they're rushing stories through with these people, isn't it? Trading off good stories for easy stories just so you can fill this void with Tom audios isn't what I'd do, but I don't really care for Tom's audios anyway. He's already got 7 series of 4th Doctor audios already and I couldn't tell you how many good ones there were from that selection on one hand.


 No.80152

Very few and nearly exclusively from the same writer.

>>80152

Some of them sound legitimately interesting but I'm only taking that from the titles (Last of the Colophon, Requiem for the Rocker Men, The Silent Scream, Destroy the Infinite and Return to Telos), so they could be legit shite for all I know. I do remember you saying that The Trouble with Drax is pretty good the other day, but that's one potentially good story out of 30+. Not looking good, yet.

MR => Main range

CC=> Companion Chronicles, an excellent range in which Bradley does not have a place

>>80151

I wonder how many series we will get in the end, it's already a huge number of stories. If Tom makes it to 90 or so before stopping it'll be crazy.

I've not heard anything of Tom's audios beyond The Crooked Man. I'm working my way through them, and it's almost agony. King of Sontar was just so poor. Best Tom audio has been Energy of the Daleks, and that wasn't even that good. How was the Sutekh stuff handled?

Far too many "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", "Evil of the Daleks", "Power of the Daleks", Day of the Daleks", "The Dentist Appointment of the Daleks", "The Table Tennis Tournament of the Daleks" under its banner.

Titles referencing the Doctor were few and far during the classic series (I can only think of The Death of Doctor Who off the top of my head, although I'm sure there must have been more), so why couldn't they take a leaf out of their book?

Then the sixth episode of New Who is called Dalek, and once they take the reins it's never ending.

So, some background on this one: Imm just asked me to write this one day desu. It seemed logical, I had helped him out editing his stuff, he had already written a story for mine. I set to work in May and after I finished this one I forcefully say on my fingers because I was afraid if I kept writing shit I'd be holding up Neo by that point. The only question I asked Imm was whether he wanted an action story or a short character piece. Oh well, taking Imm's doctor to blow up the Rutan homeworld will have to wait.

The opening paragraph is a range of influences: I ripped the lyrical quality from Paul Simon's The Boy in the Bubble(Neo probably knows the track) and the path of the wind idea came from Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time.

The general direction and inspiration infact comes from the John Mayer song namesake, the opening deals with The Doctor's feelings on being merged with Cadence "Now that we are over As the loving kind We'll be dreaming ways To keep the good alive(referring to how the doctor has to remember their humanity

Only when we want is not A compromise I'll be pouring tears Into your drying eyes(a direct reference to Imm's story later)"

And i had fun writing all the meta jokes for that section(3 first doctors, baker and mccoy being 6, an unearthly child having 2 pilot eps shot…)

Then we get to the second act, and I dunno if the twist came off right(she's not talking to the previous incarnations but to her human self) and its all "over the top" drama. I felt that was right to establish legacy and humanity in the character where it wasn't fully fleshed out right. In that regard I went off what was in Perfect Authentic Cadence and used the song as a guideline for the second half of the story starting with the flashback.

I showed Imm the first draft and he did a double take when he read that I made his doctor someone who broke up a family; but that's an important part of Cadence's story:her confidence made her achieve great(in the sense of incredible) things, and her losing it caused her spiral and descent into alcoholism. The doctor is a second chance, and in seeing that she realizes its a second chance to reassess and reconnect to what actually was worth connecting to in her previous life.

But the main lesson between this, Counting Stars and my Foreman story is: don't let me take over your characters. I'll drag them into dark alleyways, beat them up then shake them upside down by their ankles trying to take loose Canon from their pockets. Seriously, I sent the Foreman Doctor on a 5 year quest to murder himself in the past! People got up in arms when Terrence Dicks made 3 do that to 8.

I genuinely won't miss the Moff that wrote TUAT; complete life support writing, the show for the sake of the show, which I hate. I hate it when shows have a perfect finale then extend an episode or two beyond it…Breaking Bad did it, Capaldi Who did it, it really annoys me. If a showrunner I'd 100% support (Harness, Brooker, Ianucci, Gaiman, etc.) had been hired instead of Chibnall I don't think I'd be any kinder to the episode, but I do think you have a point some of the reaction to TUAT is fuelled by the pronged resentment at Moff for leaving and resentment for Chibnall for starting.

No. I do appreciate her first words for the fact they weren't a terrible joke about body parts. It worked well as an observation by 10, but was run into the ground by 11 and 12's didn't even make sense.

It's not supposed to be her recognising that she's a woman, as the leaked clip makes it clear that she doesn't know she's a woman at that point, so I don't know why she said what she said - is she glad the Regeneration worked properly?

I'm not writer so I can't think of any great first words, but perhaps her first words could have waited till her first episode.

Either that or she could have shouted expletives as she fell from the TARDIS.

Seriously? I truly think he sounds excellent, almost exactly like Matt, just a shame he doesn't appear to be erratic enough.

Just had a thought, though - Matt may also be less erratic in audio form when he does finally get there, so we might get a slightly-canon "settled", more matured 11. Sort of like 4 (before he started getting in the groove) and 6.

He doesn't sound much like Matt to me, like I can tell he's trying to be Matt/11, but it's not like 10 where I could feasibly mistake him for Tennant in some lines.

I agree with what you say about 11. BF would be wise to set the audios in the long stretch between Closing Time and the S6 premiere/finale, where he has settled down more. Moff left a shit tonne of gaps for BF for 11, but that would be my preferred one (actually Trenzalore would be my truly preferred one but I absolutely do not trust BF to do Trenzalore well).

In the TW marathon eventually we're gonna get to BBC's 11-audio series of full cast Torchwood audios; we're all very intrigued what non Briggs Finish full cast DW (spinoff) audios will be like. What will be different?

Honestly I shit on BF DW as much as anyone here (more than most I'd bet) but as a company I don't hate BF or anything cause I really do love their other ranges, not just Who adjacent stuff but the Classics, my mum adores the Sherlock Holmes range, etc. The NewWho license fucked up their DW audios but it definitely improved their DW spinoff stuff.

If anything gets Capaldi to do BF it will be

1) the years mellowing him out (Tom style) and making him more nostalgic about playing 12

2) Gomez (and likely eventually Mackie/Lucas/maybe even more) encouraging him to; getting old and BF seeming like a fun chance to hang out with old cast friends and have a nice lunch together

3) a genuinely great Shearman/Hall level script falling in his lap (this will never happen because BF wouldn't prewrite a script for an actor not signed on, but I think it would actually convince him)

1 and 2 are completely antithetical to the principles of why he doesn't want to do BF/anniversaries, but with age that stuff usually seems less important. We'll (eventually) see either way.

Honestly think that sort of attitude encourages communal virginity. For homebody geeky sorts yes sex is hard/rare to come by, but it's perpetuating the attitude that that's the norm that enforces that, not really women/men of the outside world, imo. One of my best mates is a virgin and he's a handsome/funny/sharp bloke; it's just because he doesn't put himself out there, it's not a mark against somebody or some massive deal, just a consequence of how much (and yes, to a lesser degree how well, although that's massively blown up) you interact with the gender you're attracted to imo. It's easy to think "the sorts that go on 8chan are all virgins" and it's a self-enforcing cycle that thought-terminates the kind of behaviour that would lead to one losing their virginity. That's my unasked-for opinion.

Yup, just simple maths, if you stay in your home not interacting in person with men/women 95% of nights a year, it is literally impossible for that person to have sex for 95% of nights a year.

Some places on the web are definitely better than others, at least locally. I can totally understand why guys loathe but use tindr for instance. I say there's probably quite a market for a "geek/fandom dating app" or one for the socially er different. Forming a good real relationship has to be more challenging though. I'm going to sound like a backwards old man, but swiping words on a phone to hook up is just so disconnected.

It's quite interesting to realise that the David Tennant Doctor was less of a Dr Who and more of a James Bond. The intention was to create a Doctor Who that's available to the masses, and in that sense, despite NuWho being a continuation, it could very well be classed as an adaptation. Had Moffat stuck to the idea of changing the Doctor's personality and deconstructing the nostalgia and lore behind him to make him suitable for the modern era, we might now have a very different version of the show - something akin to what Fox were to produce post-TVM. Vid related because it feels like a contemporary take on the classic Doctor-defeating-the-Cybermen formula.

I’m rewatching The Long Game, and a lot of it - the media jacks in people’s heads, the Editor being able to “smell” changes in the information flow, the people being influenced by the media to believe all sorts of ‘common knowledge’ unquestioningly - is giving me strong vibes of the Remote…

Series 1 of Doctor Who takes so much direction from the Wilderness Era that it’s practically the Doctor in the Faction Paradox universe. The Remote vibes in The Long Game and Bad Wolf; the posthumans in The End of the World; the general aesthetic of the War being such a horrific event in the universe’s past, with the Time Lords fighting an unstoppable force until the Doctor was forced to destroy them both; and the vibe of the post-War universe being wrong and somewhat broken with Gallifrey’s absence (cf Father’s Day). Even the Daleks, which you’d never think of as contestants in a war of time and information like the War in Heaven, are defined in their first appearance by their ability to synthesize biodata and download the entire Internet … tell me that’s not something you’d expect in a Faction novel.

Hal was conceived at a time when artificial intelligence was more of a fictional construct than a practical possibility. Hal is introduced as humanlike because the audience is senpaiiliar with and comfortable with humans, but they aren’t senpaiiliar with or comfortable with living computers. It’s when he starts acting robotic and calculated that the audience realizes “oh no, he’s a computer” and he becomes threatening.

By the time Glados was conceived, we had become used to computer automated systems. Synthetic voices offering us information is something we encounter in daily life. Glados is introduced as a computerized preprogrammed voice because that’s what the audience is senpaiiliar and comfortable with. It’s when she starts acting human and emotional that the audience realizes “oh no, she’s alive” and she becomes threatening.

>>80517

I'm actually puzzling around with expanding these ideas into something bigger about how the idea of "Time War" in Doctor Who progressed from "State of Decay" through the Virgin novels, then the War in Heaven, then the NuWho Time War. Part of the thesis will be that the change to the NuWho Time War made by "Day of the Doctor" is at least as big as the change between the War in Heaven of the FP novels and the Time War in series 1-6.

(I say "series 1-6" just because of that one line in "The Doctor's Wife"; besides that, it's really just series 1 through the Tennant specials.)

Btw anyone who reads this as some kind of accusation of plagiarism is an idiot. Reminder that Loz "plagiarised" his Time War terminology from RTD

>>80525

Yknow, I really don't buy this. The only thing the Sycorax and Faction Paradox have in common is the voodoo aesthetic, and that's a common enough trope already. "Loz did it first", maybe, but I chalk this one up to "simultaneous inspiration". (Same as I do most NuWho/FP coincidences, come to think of it.)

>The Revolution Games by Morph.

Alright, so… Somehow a bunch of my stories became a 9 episode season. Fuckin' sweet!

And actually I love what Morph does here. There's this… American Gods-Gaiman-esque feel to it-the doctor's alien qualities make her feel like a universal force, the rani's character as a usurper is powerful and manipulative and the desperation drips off Dracius as he goes through stages of diplomacy. Those are three great setpieces that are so well characterized-you have a gift for striking characters that feel natural, Morph.

And I feel like your Doctor has the important beats about her- later on characters from her line build off the bones of this doctor here: icy cold opinion of gallifrey, villain sympathy… And so its a delight that she has this sort of… Inaction to her. It establishes the importance of her choice to step in but also a chance to see what an adventure-less doctor could be, which is a fascinating study in and of itself.

At first it seems as though The Rani is at odds between this and her later appearance in the season, but actually the elements are there: charisma, thinly disguised disgust for time lords and the loss of life she sees as simple collateral. The only difference is here she's won and has a PR face on, there she's losing and proves herself a not so graceful loser.

I think there's a lot to like here, but I feel like there's so much to come from this storyline, which is exciting. The difference between me and you in our writing is striking, but I'm very happy that you kick off this "season" with such a quality tale. Thematically it fits in with the ideas I toss around in Stalemate and The Three Doctors, and that's wonderful to be on the same wavelength without me even having mentioned it.

If you end up picking this thread up for as big a story as I think it would be, itd be a treat to read, Morph.

The Doctor has championed plenty of figures that engaged in large scale violence. Moffat, for all his faults, had an open and genuinely affirming clarity in recognising the show shouldn't just be made for those with baseline politics most similar to how it usually is. It's nothing specific about Brexit, that was just the example he chose for a dividing issue the show (in his view) shouldn't become exclusionary about.

Because the show is made through a British view on history. I was never taught about how Churchill fucked the Indians up, and instead was taught that he was GOAT-tier and fucked the Germans up. British pop-culture (and I'm not talking about 2018 pop culture, I'm talking about 40's to 80's) has always taken the piss out of Hitler through several TV Shows, Radio shows and parodies. Just look at Dad's Army - it's set in the last years of WW2 and there's at least 2 or 3 Hitler/German jokes in every episode.

I said I'd give this a serious response, so here it is. I wrote it in one go and haven't proofread, so let me know if I say anything too

>Would you say "Let's Kill Hitler", as a title and premise, has skated by fairly uncriticised, when it may be due a hell of a lot of criticism?

The title is an unabashed clickbait non sequitur for an episode that completely fails to engage with the classic moral dilemma about using time travel to kill Hitler and then accidentally unwriting, idk, everything good from history or whatever. Instead of "The Fires of Pompeii" with Hitler, we got a random, melodramatic storyline about River Song.

(I'm actually really curious about when Moffat invented the "Mels" chapter of River Song's life. I expect it was fairly late in the game, seeing as he passed up the PERFECT chance to introduce her in "The Big Bang". Without that background, it's kind of impossible to see the whole character of Mels as anything but contrived.) (Reminder that Mel Bush is the real GOAT backstory for River Song)

Aaanyway, there might be something redeeming to be said here about subversion of audience expectations and that beautiful buzzword "audience hostility", but I don't feel comfortable enough with my grasp on that term to use it in conversation.

>Do you think there's a problematic disrepency between how Churchill and Hitler were portrayed in Moffat episodes?

The other day I read this interesting little essay by a Civil War vet (from the Union Army), written around 1900. The writer discussed Oliver Cromwell, who was despised after his death to the extent that his corpse was dug up, hung, and beheaded, but now Cromwell has a nice statue looking at the Houses of Parliament; then he talked about the Civil War a bit, and he concluded that like Cromwell, Robert E Lee would stand the test of history and have a statue in Washington DC by the year 1960. It's a pretty entertaining read, especially considering what happened in Charlottesville last year.

It may be impossible to tell how history will stand on Churchill, but we can look at the facts about his life, just as we can look at the facts of the life of every senpaious historical figure. Lincoln was a white supremacist; Martin Luther King Jr was a serial adulterer; Gandhi told Jews to willingly offer themselves up to the Nazis. But their reputations seem to have held up fine, and I expect series 11 will gift us with sympathetic or even glorifying coverage of at least one of those figures, rather than turning it into any kind of a "teaching moment".

It's pretty clear how history has decided on Hitler, and I'm glad we're at the point where Moffat can turn him into a slapstick character (next in a long line of slapstick renditions of Hitler) without there being any controversy whatsoever. As you could tell from Godwin's Law, the entire West has agreed that Hitler and Nazism are the Worst Thing Ever.

… or should I say, at least half of the West. America seems roughly split between that perspective and the one that sees Stalin and Communism as the Worst Thing Ever. Of course, Doctor Who has senpaiously addressed that latter perspective in the wonderful short story "Closing the Account".

One way or the other, we've all known for a hundred years that the Doctor is completely ethically inconsistent, and it's no surprise that Moffat continued that trend. I keep coming back to that one post that said the Doctor's name can only be heard by children because they're the only ones naive enough to accept it. I'm not really sure how to wrap this up so I'm just going to stop typing here.
