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.

classicwho-liveblog:

So this is a character in the upcoming story “Robot of Sherwood”.  Ok is it just me, or does this look an Awful lot like Anthony Ainley? Like I know Anthony is dead but I’m like half expecting whoever this guy is to be the Master somehow.

"Is Moffat capable or referencing anything that he didn’t write?"

thenotoriousscuttlecliff:

And that was all just from the first two episodes of season 8.

"You’re not my boss, you’re my hobby" yes what were you saying about clara oswald’s character revolving solely around the doctor 

hipsterbrigadier:

Multi doctor story consisting of the seventh doctor, the twelfth doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Amy Pond

that then cedes into its own independent spinoff

Sylvester McCoy outtakes.

Thoughts on the Doctor's New "I Hate Soldiers" Thing

On one hand, it makes sense for the episode. The Doctor spent hundreds of years fighting a war on Trenzalore before he regenerated, and the episode spends a lot of time focusing on the Doctor’s morality. He even explicitly asks whether he is a good man, and he seems to find the hatred the Dalek…

If you remember correctly in The Sontaran Startagem and in the Poison Sky the doctor speaks repeatedly to Martha and U.N.I.T.  of his disdain of soldiers. these were RTD episodes. It’s not so much Moffat error as it is Doctor cannon.  (This is not in any way a type of defense for Moffat, just an observation.)

I’m not blaming Moffat or anyone, I’m just sharing my thoughts about one problem I had with a generally good episode. I only tagged the post “moffat criticism” because some people really get angry about any criticism of the show and choose to blacklist it.

Thoughts on the Doctor’s New “I Hate Soldiers” Thing

On one hand, it makes sense for the episode. The Doctor spent hundreds of years fighting a war on Trenzalore before he regenerated, and the episode spends a lot of time focusing on the Doctor’s morality. He even explicitly asks whether he is a good man, and he seems to find the hatred the Dalek sees in him terrifying. So he probably wanted to stay as far away from any possible reflections of himself as he could.

However, on that note, none of that excuses the fact that a program of such wide popularity and reach would say something like “I hate soldiers” and so explicitly. Any hate towards a group of people is bad enough, in my opinion, but to direct hate towards a group of people who have suffered traumatising experiences and bad repercussions from their time in service is not acceptable. In general, I loved the episode, but problems such as these cannot be overlooked, especially when they could have so easily been avoided.
