A Doctor Who thread were people complain about RTD/Tennet or Moffet/Smith? I for one, am SHOCKED!

In other news, I just got to work and found a cowboy hat left behind in the delta concourse. It's a sign!

Well, it's a little late to complain about John Nathan-Turner, though he should have left before Colin Baker's first season.

There were a lot of similarities betwwen this and the last episode.
A bunch of lower life forms threatened. (dinosaurs, townsfolk)
They were all threatend by a weapon. (missile, soldier)
You had shades of grey in an antagonist that caused the crisis. (pirate, other doctor)
They both had killed a lot of innocent life forms. (Silurians | Kahler)
The Ponds were crucial to saving the day.
The Doctor used a disguise to trick the weapon.
He found a way to let the morally questionable character go. (pirate | other doctor)
This time, the morally grey person killed themself.

Also the Doctor played no music but blinked a lot of light bulbs.
He also mentioned his Christmas list again.
He also did not openly admit to being an alien. River Song might be the first Time Lord and the Doctor might be advanced human.

I think it was just a reference/homage -- like the names of the Dalek-ised crew of the Alaska in "Asylum of the Daleks" (Harvey and Oswald).

Which makes me wonder what name reference I must have missed last week.

Hasn't aired here yet, but if no one minds I have a nit to pick about last season:

So in the season opener we see the Doctor get shot, start to regenerate, then get shot again and "die". At the end of the season we learn that he was inside the robot suit thingy and didn't die. So my question is: how did the suit suit start to "regenerate"? And how did everyone inside survive being set on fire?

The Teselecta didn't really start to regenerate; it just started a momentary light show out of the shirt collar and cuffs to simulate the start of regeneration. The people weren't set on fire; only the gasoline on the outside surface of the Teselecta was set on fire.

So I think at this point we can assume that there's something involving light bulbs and electricity that's going to be playing a huge part in the Christmas episode.

Does it really matter? It's symptomatic of the writing these days. Fans have to obsess over fiddly details because the writers are trying so hard to outclever each other that everything has to be retconned or explained later.

I'm not a RTD lover, but in general, the show was more interesting when he was in charge.

One of Amy's lines called into question the general interpretation of something Rory said last week.

Last week, when Brian told Rory to put a trowel on his Christmas list, Rory responded, "I'm 31 years old." We assumed therefore that the Williams' "present day" is up to 2019-2020, particularly since Chris Chibnall wrote the episode along with "The Hungry Earth" in which Amy & Rory see their then-future selves in 2020.

This week, however, Amy told the Doctor that they needed some time off, in part because their friends are going to start noticing that they are aging faster than everyone else. So maybe their present is only in 2014 or 2015 and the Doctor keeps bringing them back to when they left the previous time, so the couple are 31 years old, but less than 31 years have elapsed from 1989.

That's what I didn't like about last season; too many plot lines going on at once. I had to read the fark threads every week just to get some level of understanding of the plot.

Which is why I'm enjoying this season so far. It's fun, absurd, and easy to follow.

Okay, the first episode this season was fun-but-flawed, the second was fun-but-daft, and this one was both fun and good. It was thematic, revisited some of the most interesting bits of the NuWho Doctor, did a good job using Western tropes, and I didn't even want to strangle myself when the Brits tried to do American accents. Well, aside from the preacher. They did a good job making sure no non-principals talked much, and they got an American to play one of the principals. And when they did have to talk, they tried to use Southern accents, which are about the only thing Brits can do effectively (see: Rick Grimes on the Walking Dead).
 
2012-09-15 07:30:24 PM
I actually like the Ponds (Amy has annoyed me in the past, but enjoy them as a couple), but since I know that they're in no real peril, I can't find any reason to connect to this season emotionally. RTD had his own issues, but he was generally able to create fully-realized one-off characters. Most from Moffat's reign feel like cardboard cut-outs to me so nothing that happens to them feels remotely urgent.

In a sense, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" and "A Town Called Mercy" are together the final episode of Earthshock, told in reverse:

On the TARDIS, looking down at Earth --> The Eleventh Doctor and Brian save the dinosaurs by giving them a new planetary refuge --> The Doctor & his gang fight a cyborg & the Doctor puts a five-pointed gold badge onto his breast.

The Fifth Doctor & his gang fought Cybermen --> In doing so, he takes Adric's five-pointed gold badge for maths excellence off of his chest and uses it to kill a Cyberman --> All of the dinosaurs on the planet are killed off by Adric.

HopScotchNSoda: Meh. This one left me unimpressed.

I should probably go back to waiting for a .avi torrent instead of using iPlayer. The periodic pauses for buffering detract from the show. This is the second week in which I've gone with the iPlayer route.

How much of my opinion of the show came from the buffering, versus the show itself, I don't know. The Western genre doesn't do much for me. Suspension of disbelief (an absolute necessity for enjoying Doctor Who) was made difficult by the English actors' accents, by a Western U.S. town in 1870 looking like everything had been weather-worn for half a century or more, and by the townsfolk having a negro as their spiritual leader.

Interestingly, two of the three episodes so far this year have had no scenes inside of the TARDIS.

    Amy: "What are you doing?"
    Doctor: "I speak baby."
    Amy: "No, you don't."
    Doctor: "I speak everything."


Why does the Doctor need to be able to speak lots of languages if the Tardis translates? And if it's the Tardis translating then shouldn't we be able to understand the horse, babies etc?

Wouldn't Rory's dad have questioned the age then? Rory must be 31 by the calendar, but older actually.

No, I think Rory is 31 actually, but younger by the calendar. I mean, Amy was born in 1989, which would make her and Rory in their early 20s. But, they've seemingly been off in the TARDIS with the Doctor on and off for six years of their lives. And that's why Amy has mentioned how they're looking older than their 23-year-old friends.

eggrolls: How badly does a show have have gone off the tracks that people are sick of watching the hot redhead?


Twelve-year-old, dude.

/ Or did you mean her cousin?

Speaking of the younger of the two, I don't see either of the remaining Pond episodes listed on Blackwood's IMDb page, so I guess we've seen the last of little Amelia. That may be for the best; she had already aged a lot just between "The Eleventh Hour" and "Let's Kill Hitler"; it's no wonder she was off-camera in "Good Night". The wardrobe department would have had to strap down her new boobies with an ace bandage or something; she looked in "Let's Kill Hitler" like she'd been spending a lot of time in the ol' Fotomat darkroom.*

Since Rory's dad didn't think anything was odd, that means that in the earth timeline, we're up to about 2021 now.

Or, because Dinosaurs and space travel and all that, the thing about him being 31 just slipped past without notice.

If Rory had said it to his father before the spaceship, then, yes, that would have prompted questions. But by the time Rory said it, Brian knew that Rory & Amy travelled through space and time with the Doctor.

Still, I think that they actually are 31-ish calendar-wise, and that their present is up to 2019 or 2020. Chris Chibnall wrote not only "The Hungry Earth" and "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", but also "Pond Life" and next week's Pond-centric "Power of Three", the last episode before they make their final trip into the past. Since Chibnall had Amy and Rory see themselves in 2020 in "The Hungry Earth", I suspect that scene will be tied into somehow next week.

I'd argue this episode does a great job contradicting that, although I'd definitely give most of the credit to the actors. Great acting in this episode.

One thing I wish we had seen with Amy that will now never happen would have been for Timelord Jenny (not human beastial lesbian Jenny) to make a return and, in the midst of a disagreement mockingly address Amy as "Gran". I imagine Amy would have reacted ... badly.

I'd imagine that, even after he found out about the time and space thing, Brian would be flummoxed about the 31 years old line. I don't imagine that it would be easy to get over the idea that your child is nearly a decade older than you thought. At least, I can't imagine my parents handling it well if I suddenly told them I was 31 not 23 like they thought, whether or not they accepted time travel.

That, and it definitely sounded like Rory was merely reminding his father of his age, and that it wasn't the first time that he has had to remind his dad that, at 31, he is no longer a child.

Who is this? I just started watching Doctor Who ( well, started with the start of the 11th Doctor) and I want to...watch this girl.

/not the 3 year old.

Didn't like this episode at all. This season feels... off. That could just be that it's the first one I'm watching piece-meal, as opposed to chain-viewing them through Amazon streaming.

Maybe I misheard, but did he just say he's a Kaled?

If I'm not mistaken, it is the new companion/Oswin (I could be wrong).

MikeSass: Eligarf:

Please reread my comments for comprehension, paying particular attention to the part where I said (in English) that I was not comparing, then come back with something witty that makes you seem like an even larger idiot than you already do.

As for when I began watching the show (I have never been "in love with it", nor obsessed with it as you are), it is irrelevant for this discussion but since you insist that it must mean something important, I first began watching Doctor Who at the Key to Time series, when it aired back in the late 1970's. Yes, in Britain. Yes, on BBC1. Yes, I am "from there". I am also female, since that undoubtedly is also frought with meaning for you, and I am a Capricorn, have black hair, and am nearly six feet tall. So I couldn't possibly be making an objective judgment, could I?

Well, you're obviously a raging biatch, so that gives anyone enough reason to ignore your opinion.

How come advanced civilizations haven't learned the benefits of anesthetic when they are turning people into machines? It really cuts down on the screaming

Hey, look, you lost me!

My biggest complaint is that they should have simply switched companions at the start of the series. Everything feels so meaningless since they aren't addressing the giant elephant in the room

Maybe they need the subject conscious to make sure the procedure is done correctly.
