Interests
Some have complained that the Timelord is now a Timelady.
Some have complained that the show is now “too PC”.
I don’t give a sh*t what gender the Doctor is, or who tags along on the adventures. All I care about is the storytelling.
Unfortunately, on that front, this season has been pretty crap so far.
As far as I’m concerned, the best season of “New Who” has been Matt Smith’s initial outing. That was pretty much awesome from start to finish, even though Smith wasn’t at his best in the role until later on. It’s completely stand-alone, you can watch it without any knowledge of what came before it, and the stories are engaging enough to keep you coming back. There were a few twee moments, but they were nowhere near as painful as they were across his predecessor’s tenure.
Jodie Whittaker has the potential to become a good Doctor, but right now, she’s doing the same “gotta be wacky!” thing that Smith did in his first season. Once that passes, she’ll make the role her own, I’m sure. No amount of good acting, however, can make a piss-poor script work.
This current season seems to be harking back to the original, 1960s premise of the series: the Doctor would travel in time, visiting famous points in Earth’s history, providing young viewers with both education and entertainment.
That’s an awesome idea. Use history as a foundation for drama and amazing things are built (Game of Thrones is pretty much the real world’s War of the Roses, with dragons).
Due to shoddy writing, though, what we’re getting from Doctor Who this year feels more like a history class, on a Friday afternoon, where the teacher is trying just a little too hard to be “the fun guy” of the faculty.
There’s no hook. There’s nothing bringing me back to it each week, beyond it being Doctor Who and my want for it to be an awesome slice of cheap-but-clever sci fi.
I didn’t find out until recently, but the series was very nearly cancelled (again) during Tennant’s run. I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if a that threat is looming once more.
They need to up their game.

Random question but what comic-strip number from Sequential Art is it where Art holds up that laser gun and all the nerds essentially “bow down” in awe at the comic-con?
(I got my Rob Liefeld signed comics graded and want to make a reference) :P

  Andy Serkis is a mad genius.  That was unquestionably, fucking brilliant.  And I'm not even British.

I came up with an idea for your next "Death Count" girl picture,  Tumblr.

Look. Phil. I'm not going to publically shame you or anything, but I feel that, in hindsight, your "Killcount" pinups might actually be making the whole gun problem worse.

How, exactly? Well...in short...it's because you're bringing attention to the details about them if you post something every time they happen. It's a kind of politicization of them.

I feel like this video (which doesn't even cover whether guns are good or bad, it's neutral on the issue and doesn't discuss it) describes it better than I can, so I suggest that you watch it first before possibly responding to me.

Wow, an actual informed and reasoned counterpoint?

In a comments section no less?

Am I in the Twi-light Zone or something?

EDIT:  And it's not sarcastic either!
