robohobo: whizbangthedirtfarmer:. Besides, it's good to see that a guy who has seen some of the shiat he has is grumpy every once in a while.

I'm wondering why it isn't 'par for the course' instead of 'grumpy'. I would think a guy as old as he would just be all 'that's how shiat goes' and be done with it. Kinda like the politics tab should be.


I think Tom Baker nailed that part of the character, though. He knew that no matter what he did, that things were cyclical, and if he fixed a problem, someone would just come along and fark it up again. They made Davison completely different, and prone to hyperbole (at the end of Kinda, telling everyone they were safe now).

Premeditated_Road_Rage: "Let's forget everything I wrote that made 'Blink' an awesome episode and the Weeping Angels cool and unique." canon-urination-bath that was "Manhattan".


I don't think this is really true. Here the Angels did exactly what they did in "Blink", but they were smarter about it. And unlike their last appearance, we're back to not seeing them move. I think the real issue is that they're a monster which only works once.

FirstNationalBastard: And the Second Doctor wasn't whining, he was always biatching in outrage.


Yeah, that was not a whine. Let's see... he just caught someone abusing TARDIS technology, and dropped the dime on them because it was more important to stop them than continue hiding from the Time Lords. His reward was to have a forced regeneration, get exiled to Earth, and have his companions mind-wiped and returned to their native timelines.

That's some bullshiat, right there. I'd be pissed too.

FirstNationalBastard: ArcadianRefugee: FirstNationalBastard: Yeah, but Stupid RTD tried to make the Tenth Doctor into an emo Jesus with the horrible way he went out.

"I DON'T WANT TO GO! WHY DO I HAVE TO SACRIFICE MYSELF FOR YOU? WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

No other Doctor ever made you want to see him regenerate as much as the Tenth Doctor did.

Actually, his ending seemed much more 'human' to me. How would you feel, knowing you were going to be rewritten?

Yeah, but the Doctor's not Human, He went through 9* other regenerations without whining like a biatch. Why was the 10th one so damned whiny and emo?

/*Yeah, the Second Doctor was biatching up a storm in the final moments we saw him. However, we don't know if that was when he regenerated or not. But, it does warrant a footnote in the "not whining like a biatch" discussion. And the Second Doctor wasn't whining, he was always biatching in outrage. #10 was just flat out emo whining.


Yeah, compared to 9 (who was resigned to his fate but enjoyed the ride), ten came off...a little unlike him.

And don't get me wrong... I enjoyed the Tenth Doctor and his stories. But his ending... it made me glad Matt Smith was coming, and made Sylvester McCoy in a bad blonde wig getting a bump on the head look like a good regeneration.

They could have worked well this time (and other times) if they were NOT the main MotW, I think. Like if BBC had kept things shushed about the Ponds saying goodbye and simply had a different MotW that they were fighting, all would be cool... Go through 3/4 of the show fighting the MotW and have the Doctor and Ponds escaping (or chasing) said MotW through a graveyard and then BAM! No warning, no tearful farewell, just a MotW, the Doctor, and a pair of footprints leading up to a headstone statue that the Doctor suddenly (or slowly) recognizes. Both the Doctor and audience are blindsided and weeping like infants (if Pond fans)... No fuss, no muss, and the angels get back to being the LONEly ASSASSINS, not the herd-mentality self-parodies they became in Manhattan.

Rhypskallion: I'm looking forward to a creative team change on Doctor Who. This last season has been really sub-par.


I really liked the episode with the little black boxes. The rest were pretty "meh."

Because those other 9 were, essentially, different people with other personalities, and several died rather quickly (leaving little time to complain). I'd wager more would have put up a fight if they'd had the chance.

I mean, [virtual] immortality may be keen, but that doesn't make certain parts sucky. Look at 'Highlander'-style immortality. Yes, you come back just as you were, but that doesn't make the dying part any less painful or traumatic. Now combine that with the fact that you -- as you are -- are dead; what comes next merely has your memories and skills.

Contrast with Star Trek teleportation ("beaming") -- what winds up on the other end may be a copy of you, but it isn't you. I'd whine like a 6-year-old girl if someone made me go through that.

Fish in a Barrel: I really liked the episode with the little black boxes. The rest were pretty "meh."


That was where they should have ended the Ponds' Story. It would have been such a wonderfully bittersweet place to wrap things up, with them just growing up and deciding to move on. Amy doesn't need her imaginary friend anymore.

Instead they gave us a plot hole disguised as a story, that completely violated the core principle of the previous two seasons.

Part 1, by the way. Not my comic, and I think it's gone on indefinite hiatus, but it was sometimes amusing during its run.

Dr. Who has the worst, most inconsistent writing ever. I still play it on netflix from time to time, when I want to take a nap.

No matter. I can now wear a bowtie, a Stetson and tweed jacket, braces (suspenders) all over 15 years old, to a Halloween party and get away with calling it a costume.

You have all that waiting in your wardrobe?!

I am both frightened and impressed

Yeah...sorta dumped on his entire run by making him out like a p*ssy. Sadly, it was an unappropriate bookend when you consider "The Christmas Invasion".

and made Sylvester McCoy in a bad blonde wig getting a bump on the head look like a good regeneration.

Still laugh at that scene and why that happened.

And the Christians, and the Jews, and the Mormons, and the Hindus, and so on. All the gods of man were created by man. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

If you have the hots for Leela, whatever you do, don't watch season 5 of Doc Martin to see how she's aged. By God, your dick will shrink to untold levels.

Daquin: Either way, high point of the season was Town Called Mercy because I got to see Ben Browder is still getting work. Now, if we could only have a Farscape/Doctor Who crossover.


Virginia Hey lives in London now.

/not that that helps. Cardiff would have been better
