Premeditated_Road_Rage: Zarquon's Flat Tire: Premeditated_Road_Rage: floor: Premeditated_Road_Rage: Geeze - this is only about the 300th greenlit "list of all 11 Doctors" link I've seen on Fark since Matt Smith took the role.  This may be a 'new' link, but it's certainly worthy of the 'Repeat' tag, IMHO.

Big publicity push this week. The LA Times has it as a cover story on their Calendar section. The local news stand has a few magazines with Matt Smith on the cover. Hopefully this will not lead to a change in the show to appeal to an American middle of the road demographic.

Him stalking both Amy and Clara (as seen here) as children have done a better job of repelling this American rather than appealing.  *shiver*.  We need to bring on Doctor #12 before the Tardis becomes the Gallifreyian equivalent of a nondescript van with tinted windows.

Dude it's not creepy to help a child if you don't plan on banging it.  WTF?

Until he convinced her to go for Rory (granted, his long absences helped in this matter), Amy was obsessed with the Doctor due to the early imprinting.  It is obvious by her overt flirtations in the Snowmen episode that Clara is equally into him and the meeting of her early in life in the St. John's prequel (wibbly-wobbly as Asylum takes place AFTER Snowmen, St. John's, etc., in her personal timeline) could be part of that imprinting.

It just strikes me as 'grooming', whether the Doctor does it intentionally or not.


Perfect example of the American obsession with sex.  Y'all see it everywhere, even in perfectly innocent things.  It involves a child and a grown up -- SEX PREDATOR!

To the Doctor everyone is a child.  He's 900 years old.  When Vastra asks him when Melody might have been conceived he goes all "argh don't make me think about the kids having sex".

Women are into him because he's an intelligent, powerful and mysterious being with a time-travelling spaceship.  He gives them the most thrilling time of their lives and makes them feel important.  It would be a surprise if women didn't fall in love with him.

Amy was obsessed with him as a child because she had a lonely, crap life she was unhappy about, and he was her promise of a better life.  Other unhappy kids have to make someone up, she had a visual to hang her escape fantasies on.  That you see even unintentional grooming in that only reveals a problem with you and your society, not with the show.

Funbags: Fark's adoration of this terrible franchise is simultaneously sad and misguided.

Peter Davison was the last Dr, and Tom Baker was the last good Dr. Anything newer is unrepentant shiat. QED.


Thank you for your opinion. Now get the fark out.

FirstNationalBastard: Are you being a smug, holier-than-thou hipster who is trying to win an internet argument?

Yes.


Nope.  Just someone a little older and a little wiser than you, offering some wisdom.  The fact that you don't see that for what it is, and thought I was attacking you is how I know you're younger and slightly dumber than I am.

You want a personal attack?  Here goes: it's clear from your posts in Doctor Who threads (and you post in all of them) that you don't like Tenant or Smith.  That's all well and goos, as you're entitled to your opinion, but your attempts in these threads to convince Doctor Who fans who do like the new show that you're right and they're wrong is an idiotic waste of time on your part.  It's like trying to teach a pig to sing.

There are lots of things in this world I don't like.  I don't care for professional sports, but I don't spend all my free time in the Sports tab trying to convince people who like baseball that it's the least interesting waste of time ever conceived by man.  You know what I do?  I stay out of the Sports tab.

Don't like Doctor Who?  Don't watch it.  Stop posting about it.  Forget about it and find something better to do with your time.  It will make you a happier person.  I speak from personal experience in this.

FirstNationalBastard: What are a Doctor who deserved a longer run, one toothy overrated Doctor, one Doctor that hasn't gotten a chance to shine yet, and an overrated Doctor with a long scarf?


Opinions, man.  Eventually, you'll get old enough to realize that yours are no better or worse than anyone else's.

No love for Peter Cushing?   Doctor 3.5?


Cushing is given passing mention in the first paragraph of the informative article slide of the not-so-informative-but-revenue-generating slideshow.

Apos: Hollie Maea: I haven't ever watched any Dr Who.  Where should I start?


The Christopher Eccleston tenure(2005-2006) is a great place to begin. It'll provide a comprehensive and engaging introduction to everything you need to know about the brilliant and eccentric Time Lord.



I'd agree, BUT he/she needs to be warned not to give up when Aliens of London and World War III roll around...

FirstNationalBastard: Oh, look, it's the U MADE CRIMITISM U NO LIKE U QUIT WATCHING argument again.


Brilliant.  Truly brilliant.  You are a mind for the ages.

Seriously: why constantly annoy yourself by watching, thinking and posting about something you don't like?

Why don't go do something you enjoy instead?  Or as you the sort of miserable dolt that enjoys being unhappy all the time?

I always thought Peter Davison's Doctor trumped Bakers version.

/although Tom Bakers voiceovers for Little Britain are epic

And let's not forget Rowen Atkinson's epic portrayal of the Doctor.

Uh... is that William Hartnell in the first pic, or did EW mistakenly pull a shot of Richard Hurndall from The Five Doctors?

TheManofPA: People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually - from a non-pedo, non-rapey viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of touchy-feely... of agey-rapey... stuff.


Given that Amy was 20-something and the Doctor is now 1200 years old, it's rather like an adult lusting after a zygote, inn't?
