Sh*t Whovians say Part 3
It's been announced, Series/Season 8 starts filming next month, and will air August 2014!!! What if I get bored until then? Bring me knitting. Anyone for chess?
re: Albert Lopez - it might be dramatic to say that he's the "The Last of the Timelords" but in truth his people could be seen as "The Gallifreyians" and The Time Lords a sub-speciies that has been genetically engineered to a degree. The Doctor is the disputed "hero" of the Time Lords and "the one who (cares to) interfere." I'm sure there are plenty of ways for that dramatic tension as they did through-out 3, 4 and 5 when referring to his people. Now there's even more history. The Doctor is the time lord who is defying the ruling on 12 regenerations but still remaining (debatably) sane. Rassilon broke that rule and became a tyrant.
I am a huge fan! I did not realize how much of one until I started watching Matt Smith play the Dr. I have seen some episodes here and there when I was growing up but not enough to really get into it, Just a great show!
@Amanda - I've been a fan of this programme for about 20 years now - that doesn't mean I'm going to blindly praise everything that has the Doctor Who logo slapped across it.
If something's good, I'll point it out, if something's rubbish I'll point that out, too. That's how critical faculties work.
Adventure in Space and Time was indeed fabulous. Absolutely beautiful.It helps that I know someone who was in it, too ;)
So, I know this is kinda shameless self promotion, but I feel like you guys would appreciate the concept of a sonic screwdriver in a guitar. Please excuse my terrible babbling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkPUo2VI7iY
I will never understand you Jonathan. I don't think this show will ever be up to your perception of standards.
Bronze OH MY GOSH I LOVED THE DOCUDRAMA! I sobbed for a full 20 minutes because of the end! If I ever get to time travel, rather in a TARDIS or not (though a TARDIS would be preferable) I would take Hartnell and show him how amazing the show has gotten. He deserves that and more. He believed in the show from the very beginning, and watching even an actor portray his health deterioration made me absolutely depressed.
@Jonathan Yeah, you're right and the sad thing is, it wouldn't be that hard to write a special that could have had all existing Doctors; IDW had a comic during the tennant days, were he suddenly found himself in what amounted to a Doctor Experience in space (but with no fans around) and he goes through it, looking at hi old suits and weapons from past enemies, telling Martha about them; in the end off course, this was a trap to probe some secret I forget out of his mind and martha was the badie of the week, trying to guide him to remember and tell him what he needed. How hard would something like that have been to accomplish? Hell what happened to the memory pit the doctor was in the last time we had seen him, that was another easy reason for a special that involved thing from the past 50 years of the shows. In both scenarios you can still have tennant around, as well all existing doctors with some easy explanation as to why they look older. If they want to go with The Moment, it could have easily shown him who he had been, as as who he became, thus giving a better reason as to why they all show up at the end.
These all out of the top of my head in a couple of minutes of thinking about it, I expect a proper tv writer as Moffat is supposed to be could have come up with something better; and sure some of the actors being dead makes things harder, but they have shown that they can get around that.
Still again you can't look at the special as the only thing done to celebrate the anniversary, you had several things happening, many of which celebrated the classics, hell Adventures in Space and Time had me in tears, the radio 4 adventures made me want to go and listen anything Big Finnish, The Fiveh(ish) Doctors, made me laugh, so all in all the anniversary made like this show a lot more then I did before. That being said, only 2.2 million people watched Adventures, opposed to the 10.8 that watched the Day, so you are right in the ned
