Dwight_Yeast: if_i_really_have_to: I know all the "cool kids" are into Moffat bashing, but at least complain about things he actually wrote./He wrote A Study in Pink, A Scandal in Belgravia, and His Last Vow//He also doesn't direct or produce the showA Scandal in Belgravia is still terrible.He and Gattis created the show on the London-Cardiff train while they were filming on a Gattis-penned episode of Doctor Who, so I'd imagine the two of them (and various others) still work out story arcs and little things like "how do we kill Sherlock and then bring him back?" on the train./For those who don't know, Doctor Who is produced by BBC Wales for reasons which passeth understanding, probably having to with open-cut mines.//And all the TV people in the UK live in or around London///So everyone who works on the show commutes
cheer: In Mawdryn Undead,as I posted above, the Doctor SPECIFICALLY disputes this: "I can regenerate twelve times; I already have done so four times."
s2s2s2: I was told that if I liked my doctor, I could keep him.Thanks a lot, Obama!
Millennium: Dimensio: I thought that Eleven was now Twelve, making Mr. Capaldi Thirteen.The War Doctor is not counted in the numbering system: he himself disowned the title of Doctor out of necessity, and the later regenerations all agree that he should not carry the title. Or you could always go by the real reason Moffat gave: he didn't want to have to renumber all the NuWho doctors in his mind either. So while a certain Gallifreyan whose name is as yet known only to River Song and possibly his TARDIS has had twelve incarnations, only eleven of them have been called "The Doctor" (other than in the show's own credits). So it is that the Twelfth Doctor is actually the thirteenth incarnation of that being, because he is the twelfth incarnation to be called that.Which brings up a question: people would have had to call the War Doctor something. What did they call him?
MindStalker: The Silence and Weeping Angels in the same episode?So if I Silence turns turns around from a Weeping Angel does the Angel forget the Silence was there?
phaseolus: Um, I have a request, if I may ... Can we dispense with the numbering arguments, for once, in a Fark Doctor Who thread? Those discussions get real tedious. Thanks.
