QUESTIONS (AND OBSERVATIONS) ABOUT THAT *OTHER* SITE

So, it's all shuttered. Or as people on reddit like to say: shuddered. Unless they are talking about a delightful NSFW frisson and mean shuddered, in which case they would spell it shuttered.

But I digest, The Old Place is now archival and probably artisanal; the  sort of place that attracts hipsters with ironic sideburns who chase $50 a shot whiskey with PBR because REBEL!

Still digesting here. I am the sad. We knew this day was coming, but only recently. In the halcyon, mixed baby greens days of our youth we had no idea that this day even existed much less would come, but here we are. The infantile greens grew up and we forgot about them in the back of the fridge until there was a distinct "off" smell and the crisper wouldn't close properly. THEN, we investigated and saw that the adorable, little baby greens grew up and then decomposed into a distressing slurry in a ziplock bag (if we were lucky). So yeah, it's over-ish. But...

Maybe this is like the re-boot of Doctor Who. Clodfobble is the new show-runner and Limey and Glatt are directors. Some of us are writers, bit part actors, or viewers. Monster is, of course, The Doctor. Like any change of show-runner it usually takes a few episodes before the show really hits its* stride. I am hopeful about our new show runner and overlords.

*Again, if this were reddit it would be it's

Raise a glass.


Also those little reddit bastards couldn't write a gd wrong.

The Cellar is dead... Long live the Cellar!

The degeneration process can take some time to complete. It doesn't always happen instantly. When it's done though, the memories remain. I'm sure the High Council will endeavor to persevere. The Master survived, so will you.

Just remember to keep your psychic paper handy.

Ed Zachary. We could all be typing on broken keyboards translating through google into Urdu and back then scribbling the result on wet cocktail napkins and slapping them against the ceiling of an interstate rest area Denny's bathroom and we'd still be leagues ahead of Chibnall's disastrous sabotage of Doctor Who.

That's a topic I try not to think about too much - I refuse to be the angry fangurl .... but Chinballs is making that very hard. 

And dont even get me started on the multiplatform anniversary story - that pisses me off. 

One of the reasons the Big Finish audios weren't allowed to deal with any current storylines, was because it was considered bad form to force fans into buying additional media to be able to follow the freely (with licence fee) available main show storyline. 

They've apparently taken a steaming dump on that intention

had to look that up...HA!

yep

it's the ruination of the undergirdin' that irks me: the doctor was a mediocre, restless time lord who struck out in a defective tardis and, despite himself, became a force for good...no matter the iteration, this was your foundation: a guy with a time machine, just givin' it his best shot

now: she's the unknown time goddess who shits good will & rainbows

fuck that noise

bad writin', irritatin' characters, and a let's stab the viewers in the face political message

long time back I listened to one of them BF audios: it was a what if story...what if the second doctor had suicided instead of allowing himself to be taken & punished by the tme lords

he regenerated as a woman, lost the tardis, ended up workin' as a waitress with a drinkin' problem

I've started watching Torchwood bc maybe it can be a sort of oblique Dr. Who fix. And I like Eve Myles; for Gat-toothèd [i]s she...

The whole Chinballs thing strikes me as someone higher up at BBC has been tucking in to the crazy sauce or Chinball actually CAN suck a golf ball through 50 feet of garden hose. I feel bad for Jodi Whittaker bc she lost a great opportunity.
