I will judge my followers if they don’t reblog this
I love all the faces in the background
Who does Moffat think he is? Bringing on John Hurt as some “forgotten” Doctor from the Time War? Is it possible for there to be a bigger fuckery of continuity? After all, he’s just the temporary showrunner. He doesn’t own Doctor Who. It’s been around long before him, and will likely be around long after he’s gone. What gives him the right to change the show so dramatically? It should be exactly the same as it always has been.
After all, it’s not like John Wiles and Donald Tosh had any right to say the Doctor could experience a renewal and become another younger man.
After all, it’s not like Louis Marks had any right to bring back the Daleks after their ‘final end’ in “The Evil of the Daleks”.
After all, it’s not like Robert Holmes and Terrance Dicks had any right to name the Doctor’s homeworld “Gallifrey”.
After all, it’s not like Terry Nation had any right to say Daleks were mutated Kaleds created by Davros, and not Dals who had been mutated by radiation after an atomic war.
After all, it’s not like John-Nathan Turner had any right to introduce the Valeyard as an amalgamation of the Doctor’s darker nature.
After all, it’s not like Matthew Jacobs had any right to say that the Doctor was half-human on his mother’s side.
After all, it’s not like Russell T Davies had any right to turn the Doctor into a genocidal maniac who eradicated the Time Lords and the Daleks and destroyed Gallifrey in the Last Great Time War.
Clearly the show must always be what it was meant to be in the beginning. An children’s educational program about a crotchety old man who travelled in time with his granddaughter and two school teachers.
The point is, things change and writers change things. If the show doesn’t get pushed in different and new directions…then the show dies and becomes stagnant.
It’s fine to not like the changes that are made. That’s an individual’s privilege and we all have different tastes. But it’s fucking ridiculous to claim that Moffat has “no right” to change anything about the show he’s currently in charge of.
I was prepared to be pissed off at this, and then I was pleasantly surprised.
Am I the only one who assumed that Hurt represents the final doctor? The one responsible for Trenzalore?
If Hurt was a past Doctor, then Eleven would HAVE the memories of what lead Hurt to make the decision he did. He would know the rationalization. If he commited the ‘crime’ in the past, he would NOT be able to take on the name “The Doctor” again.
If Hurt is from the Doctor’s future, then Eleven would NOT understand what would lead him to such despair. Hurt would be a stranger to him.
Remember, at that point, the Doctor was inside his own timeline, including all his future days.
From what I read, Hurt is going to be the “real” 9th Doctor. This really upset me at first.
Hurt is the one who committed genocide on his own people in the Time War.
However, from 11’s reaction, this was not done in the name of The Doctor. So while Hurt may have been a past incarnation of The Doctor, he was not “The Doctor.” If you follow me.
At least thats how I see it.
Im betting the 50th anniversary will be about the “dark incarnation” getting loose and the Doctor needs to put him back in that Limbo place. Getting the best help he can, from himself.
first zeppelin ride together…
if i was in a fictional universe i wouldn’t be the main character i’d probably be that friend of the main character who lacks supernatural powers or special abilities but makes up for it with sarcasm and really lame one-liners
Is anyone else freaking out the Matt shaved his head?
Drunk Tyrion is the best Tyrion.
I once played a Bard in a D&D game who was more or less Jack Harkness. After making vast amounts of wealth adventuring he built a temple to the god of Wine and Rogues, Olidammara.
Below the temple was a tavern/brothel.
Well now I know what people mean by “post con blues”…
