Doctor Who, classic and new. Also home to a sucky fanartist and writer whose friends got sick of her ranting about Doctor Who, and who clearly doesn't know how update bars work. Looms are cool.

The fun thing about Big Finish audios is, because there’s no picture, you get to imagine all the stage directions, blocking, and gestures.

You can picture Classic Who stories with all the glory your imagination has to offer…

…or you can imagine the characters randomly twerking during the serious bits.

Continuing on with the Pertwednesday spam…

Because I was up until 4 in the morning on Tragical History Tour making cooing noises at my computer.

"The classic series is more progressive than the modern series!"

Um, have you somehow missed the fact that many male characters, including the Doctor, have made sexist remarks? 

Have you missed the fact that characters, including the Doctor, have made racist remarks?

Have you missed the fact that the modern Doctors actually face consequences for their actions more often than a number of the classic ones?

Can we please stop acting like the original run of the show was progressive utopia while the modern run is causing society to turn back to medieval ways?

There are two types of fans: those that think that I. M. Foreman represents “I am for Man” and those tho think it stands for “Intergalactic Meme Foreman”

I’ll never forget the time I was watching a Tennant episode of Doctor Who and my cousin asked if it was based on the Cushing movies.

Hey waaaaaaaitaminute… I recognize that chair!

  • Vicki & Steven in The Time Meddler, 1066
  • Throne Room of Minoan Palace of Knossos, 15th century B.C. (The throne is real, the frescoes and ceiling heavily reconstructed.)

Back at the beginning, Doctor Who was meant to be a children’s program that presented science and history, hence Ian and Barbara as main characters. In Season 2, it was still doing historicals.

I wonder how many of the items in the original TARDIS set are actually replicas of real historical pieces, as this chair certainly is.

Okay, I’ve seen many strange movies, especially in this past year as I’ve started focusing more on my study of film. But now that I’ve finally gotten around to watching The Seventh Seal, I think I can say it’s the most disturbing piece of media I’ve seen, film or otherwise. And I have very little idea why. My best guess is the stellar actors and production team (featuring my reason for watching the movie, Gunnar Fischer) working together to make such a dark study from what could simply be an existential chess game. Yet I still don’t fully understand how such a seemingly simple story could make me so deeply unsettled that I stay up half the night trying to calm down and feel decent again.
