From the last thread, did Stan Lee make cameos in R rated Marvel films like Constantine and Punisher?
of course i did dont be silly.
1st Doctor was goat but left too soon due to health issues.
2nd Doctor was a huge success despite everyone being attached to the 1st
3rd Doctor soar the show into popularity
4th Doctor was the best doctor of the classic series
9th Doctor was goat but left too soon because of issues on set
10th Doctor was a huge success despite everyone being attached to the 9th
11th Doctor soar the show into popularity
12th doctor is the best doctor of nuwho
lovely, if this is true, the next doctor is going to be boring as fuck all. Dropped
>despite everyone being attached to the 9th
>captcha: thofe roidedy
You can not make this shit up.
I still can't get over the fact that the first eighth doctor novel was erotica stuff
>When a confused and mysterious young man stumbles into the life of the recently widowed Claudia, he reignites her sleeping sexuality. But is the handsome and angelic Paul really a combination of innocent and voluptuary, amnesiac and genius? Claudia's friends become involved in trying to decide whether or not he is to be trusted. As an erotic obsession flowers between Paul and Claudia, and all taboos are obliterated, his true identity no longer seems to matter.
the events of this novel are actually referenced in a proper eighth doctor novel so it's twice as funny.
Hey /who/ Moffa here. It's NIGHT /WHO/ People, let's all get comfy and post pics of Karen Gillan's feet, did I tell you she gave me a footjob? She did, and so did Billie, and Carey Mulligan, and Sophia Myles, and Georgia Moffet, but don't tell David that, he'll kill me. :(
>all those comments about Eccleston and other who stars now
Although it is widely known that Troughton had multiple families and died at a who convention just after sleeping with a fan girl.
>cut out all the zygon and unit stuff
Cut out the thing that:
>Both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors are working on
>That creates the two analogies to saving Gallifrey (suspended animation, screwdriver)
>Creates analogous situation to destroying Gallifrey
>Reinforces the idea to destroy Gallifrey to War Doctor
For what purpose? Then the episode would be boring.
Venusian Lullaby. 5/5.
The Time Travellers takes a great premece and makes it boring as shit. The Sorcerer's Apprentince is about a 3.5/5. The Eleventh Tiger is good but a lot of these novels have Ian getting the shit kicked out of him. The Witch Hunters is about a 4/5. Make it a 3/5 if you hate Susan. Still haven't read Empire of Glass or The Plotters yet but I do have them at least.
That's the only one I've read, unfortunately
It was damn good though, despite not particularly fitting the tone of 1's era
What does /who/ think of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit? When I heard that there was an episode where the Doctor literally fights Satan (maybe) I thought it sounded retarded as fuck, but after seeing the episode I think they did it alright.
They could have had a bit more interaction, but the Zygon plot is pretty much the Gallifrey plot in a microcosm. The War Doctor believes he sees everything he needs to in order to use the Moment.
As it is, the only other place to insert Doctor interactions would have been on the way to the Tower. Anything else would be padding. If anything, what I'd rather see is a bit more with the War Doctor and the Moment, as it takes forms of his past in the shape of aged Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors. All trying to berate him for becoming a Warrior before settling on Bad Wolf.
Guys, Missy is Death. She has an unhealthy obsession/attraction to the man who not only has caused more death over time and space than anyone else but also managed to escape her grasp at every turn via regeneration. He keeps sending her dead souls, the latest being the half-face cyborg. Him getting out of the final death via new regeneration cycle is what forced her hand this season. All that and the finale is titled "Death in Heaven"
>Also no good Second Doctor actually exists.
What? Do you mean no good 2 books exist? Because Dreams of Empire and The Wheel of Ice very strongly disagree.
Nah, they're just not really that engaging. Second Doctor is just too hard to write for. All the interesting bits come from Jamie. Dreams of Empire especially holy shit.
Could be worse. Check out the reviews for this on Amazon for a good laugh.
Repost, but I completely didn't know the existence of Six until Name of the Doctor. Yes, I had watched the new series at least twice by then. I understand how impossible it would be to not realize it.
I can see that, reminds me of one of that bit in one of the VNAs where various aspects of the doctors personality are represented by the various incarnations.
would be pretty cool. but tough not to screw it up.
Sweet, delicious Jelly Blobs.
I don't really know if it fits any, all I know is that the original pitch for it, '"Starship Troopers" meets Agatha Christie' is a very apt description of the final product.
man, the first episode is goat atmospheric stuck on a base who. the violin riffs and the black hole and the mystery and gabriel woolf's beast voice are so insanely great.
i think they kind of fuck up at some points in pt 2 with the ood, but it's still well done. the feeling of isolation of the doctor and that chick at the pit. the only bit that really sucks is the terribly animated satan. what would've been cool is you just see the doctor entering into the confrontation, not knowing, then the rest is just from rose and the rocket crew's pov, with toby's possessed words and death reflecting whatever the doctor is doing in the pit, and then he saves the day. dunno how he'd find the tardis though
>We got about 25 pages into this book. First, the prologue described in detail the experimentation on, disfigurement of, and torture of, lab animals by a sadistic female scientist. The first chapter featured extremely graphic descriptions of the population of a city being literally torn to shreds by genetically engineers monsters. Next up was a vile male character very frankly "chatting up" the local "whores" - the book's word, not mine-. Finally, there's a woman that goes to see a man, apparently unknown to her, and she proceeds to have sex with him to help "cure his disease".
I don't see what the big deal is. That sounds like it'd fit right in with the tone of Second Doctor stories.
Hey, Moffat again, I get some of you aren't as comfy as I am, and aren't being particuarly social, but trust me, let's all get comfy, get some biscuits, and some tea, and your foot warmers, and your cushions, and lets all get comfy and have a nice ol' chat /who/ I'm eager for a laugh, and I've read all of Gatiss' scripts, so come on, let's try again.
They're still good 2 books even if 2 isn't perfectly portrayed in them, so I don't really see how that matters.
I think Stephen Baxter did a pretty decent job personally.
It's an extreme outlier, which is why it's so often recommended as a starting point like Blink (which makes no fucking sense), although I think 4's best stories are TV but part of that stems from the volume
I dunno. It just seems so meh. Like, I can't really remember anything from it, but I can recall everything about Harvest of Time.
I wish the BBC didn't kill this past Doctor line. Or even take that year off of doing Doctor Who books when Matt Smith was still the Doctor.
Yup, I can't get into him either. For me, Pertwee doesn't seem to have any presence. He's just sort of there reading his dialogue, and every now and then doing a karate chop. I'm also not liking Delgado's Master, and since that's a majority of season 8 and 9, it only hurts my enjoyment of the show
A guy from my school got his initials on one of the missing adventures novels and a stack of screen printed artwork for sending him a fan letter. Seems like a real gent and talent. I'd love for him to start doing covers again instead of the photoshop shit we get now.
They all just have such an extremely irrational hatred for Moffat and I just find it so odd, like some of them picked him as a target and just agreed to hate him forever no matter what.
I totally agree, I find him just so bland and he really is just there. Although I like Season 11 the second best of his seasons and most people I know who really like him really dislike Season 11 and say it's a pretty significant drop in quality, so you might like it too.
Lookin forward to it. Really, I just can't wait to get to the Hinchcliffe era. I've heard so many good things and I have no experience with the Fourth Doctor so I'm pretty excited.
Invasion of the Cat-People is 100 times worse.
That is the danger of Doctor Who fans largely being cat people.
>started by a woman and an Indian man
First of all, Waris Hussein was not Indian, he was British-Indian, since he was born in British India and gained British citizenship when he moved here. He only lived in India for 8 years, and spent his formative period in the UK.
Also, while Verity Lambert was the driving force behind the show, Hussein wasn't nearly as important as GOAT Canadian Sydney 'Pop Pop Pop (Make A Nigga Drop)' Newman.
Man this was pretty good.
>dem ambient noises at the cybermen ship
>that Alien vibe with the cybermat fucking everything
>backstory about the war between humans and androids
Clara's not even needy.
She literally explains that the reason she missed Footface McCutiepie wasn't because the new Doctor isn't boyfriend material, she's just stating how much of a great and terrible shock it is to see a face so different.
She's actually really powerfully and well-written in Deep Breath.
But that tumblrite made it seem like you're sexist if you criticize a woman, even if those faults are valid.
>WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M A CONTROL FREAK? SO NOW ALL WOMEN ARE CONTROL FREAKS, YOU SEXIST PIG?!
I think a lot of us know that feel, it's been a struggle enough for me to collect classic who DVDs (and I still dread the day I buy the two doctors), books would just be insane
Getting the War arc of the EDA's would be well over $100 on Amazon.
I love it, despite it does have some strange bits in it, such as
Susan knowing the Doctor is the Other, despite the Other sacrificed himself who knows how long ago, meaning she's much older than she lets on. Also, The Beginning by Marc Platt is canon, and it mentions the whole "no children are born on Gallifrey!" and living chairs.
There's a lot, but check TARDIS.wikia for Chris Cwej's appearances so you can get to know the character.
I don't know why they decided to end the DVD license BEFORE the 50th anniversary.
Only missing The Two Doctors, Ghost Light, and Battlefield personally.
I'm pretty jealous m8, I only have just over 20 Classic Who DVDs and I'm slowly getting more
members of the restoration team have said they have no idea what is going on with it at all, so yes
She's like the least needy or clingy nu who companion, she doesn't even want to live with the Doctor 24/7. He gets to go on Big Finish Adventures in between hanging out with her.
I haven't read the book (it's EXPENSIVE) but I never liked the ideas it put out at all to be honest.
The kids on Gallifrey during Day of the Doctor makes me wonder if Moffat didn't like it either, since RTD made a point of talking about how the Master as a child was just "oh, it was just Martha imagining it, Lungbarrow could still be canon!" or something like that.
>just saying if I could collect VNAs physically I totally would
so would i, if anyone for the 10/10 goofy as covers
You can preorder it on Amazon, so it can't be that dead.
Fans of the books must be so sad, considering most of the books are considered completely non-canonical (bar a few exceptions, look at the cover for Eyes of the Master).
It wasn't hinted, I remember her saying "I am going to give birth", and she and Ace had a few pages about it in a kitchen. And then a giant plant attacked.
I started collecting like, six months before they decided to stop printing certain DVDs.
My only fuck up was that I was buying them in order. So much good Seven unavailable.
I love Donna. Remember that time she missed a whole episode because she was too busy chilling at the spa?
>A physical copy of Storm Warning is like $300 on Amazon and I like owning physical copies of things.
You know it's weird. I'm the same fag from earlier who buys out of print Doctor Who books but for audios I don't seem to mind just downloading them.
Maybe it's because I think $25 is too expensive for them but eh. If they were $10 even I'd own all the new Fourth Doctor adventures that are coming out along with all the Lucie Millers.
I adore it; favorite episode of all of NuWho, but I'm nervous about changes in music, which I think could really affect the success of the episode's tone. I'm also nervous about people not liking it, just because it's so different and I love it so much
What was the novel where Ace has sex with a Ice Warrior? It was mentioned in a Doctor Who Magazine, I think when they were reviewing the special features for the ArK in Space?
It might be my favorite episode of a TV show tbh.
Its not gimmicky, it takes risks, its focused on characters while having the kind of plot you only get on DW , it builds tension. Frankly, that could be the last episode of the show and I would be happy.
That said, if you are reading this and haven't watched it yet, don't overhype yourself.Just go watch it now instead before somebody ruins it.
Doesn't get much more gangster
Also nice digits, appropriate for
The only thing I didn't like about it was the music, I thought it didn't fit in some places. I think it will only get better in the final version.
I welcome our new Carl Sagan Doctor.
I took advantage of the a few sales these past few months to start collecting other ranges, like the Companion Chronicles and the Lost Stories. I've also started collecting a few New Series books, and the Target novelizations.
I only started collecting the first 50 back in February so I only have 20 of the first 50 and #58 when it was on sale.
Not the original anon, but was I the only one bothered by how certain things were presented in the episode.
Not to talk about the plot, cause it works and I have no problem with it and I find Capaldi's Doctor brilliant and Clara is finally becoming more of a person but:
>It seems that her relationship with Danny is a bit forced. We saw the attraction but it feels to me that Moffat overall wants to skip the relationship building up and just show you that
"hey, their time lines are intertwined, here's their great grandson or whatever, let's have him give Clara a family heirloom knowing it is a family heirloom meant to be kept in the family"to show you that Clara and Danny will work out, will get together and love each other and once again, to me, it feels like a set up to something that's gonna happen in the series finale where a choice has to be made or someone's gonna die.
And now we learn that just like the Doctor, she's been there part of his life, shaping him and making him the man he'd eventually be and the man she'd know and even love.
the Tardis being able to go to a pre time war Gallifrey, landing there and having Clara affect the Doctor's life once again, feels that the writers are still making Clara to be this all important person in the Doctor's life who's not only the reason for his victories, even if she was just righting wrongs, but for his fear of the dark and after this episode, for helping him get over that fear, and for once again, shaping him into the man he'd grow up to be
What does /who/ think of the S12 Scarf I've been working on? It's nearly complete
I think it would have been better if they just kissed in the scene with no weird justifying it and calling more attention to it.
Same as the whole "married" thing. Just like super highlighting for no reason
Can anyone remember the last time someone on /who/ has made a good b8? Every single one is laughable. I think that copypasta is right, if you're going to bait, why not do it right and properly? Why make lame b8s and that no one falls for? Whats the point?
>bough Spare Parts
>few weeks later receive email from BF about being out of print
So the Doctor
just went to a boarding school somewhere in the universe?
Sorry for asking so many questions but I really want to fully appreciate this episode, if you can give me some source of that explanation I'd love you
Reminder on Saturday to "what?" the fuck out of the new fags so they will get pissed and leave.
But the barn wasn't on Gallifrey, the barn was a place where the Doctor spent time as a child. Possibly in a boys home echoing Danny. He went there to use the Moment and "watch Gallifrey burn" it was not on Gallifrey.
And Clara ended up important because she happened to be the one with him in this case but I don't think it was very forced. Everything that she did was completely consistant with her character in the situation.
As for the Danny thing, yes it is forcing it but frankly I don't give a shit about her relationship with Danny so that didn't bother me. If anything it made it more intersting to see how she will react to this and move forward with it
That is fucking adorable. I love how in all these interviews and shit, Capaldi seems like the nicest guy in the world, and then his Doctor is really dark and a bit hostile at times.
In the 50th the doctor says Gallifrey will be "frozen in a single moment in time" but in TOTD they seem to be able to do things. Is this a plot hole? Is there some millisecond throwaway line somewhere that explains this? Am I retarded?
he probably went to a boarding school elsewhere in the same solar system before he went to the academy/did the whole untempered schism shit
there were a bunch of other planet's in gallifrey's system, including polarfrey, karn and the asteroid kasterborous the fibster
I remember reading a tumblr post linked by some anon, and the girl was fucking seething over the three second scene where the Doctor first meets Rusty.
Her reasons as to why it was stealing from Dalek were:
-It's in a room (GASP!)
Cunts, the whole lot of them.
I don't know why everyone keeps saying this. Clara didn't have an affect on the doctor besides making him scared of stuff under the bed. The soldier without a gun was just a parallel to how the doctor acts these days and not because Clara caused that.
Its idiotic. And I know for a fact its how its gonna be on Saturday. The episode is fucking completely different to Dalek. I don't care if someone doesn't like an episode but most people just shitpost instead of having a discussion on why they don't like it.
>>48116224 Is how it should be done. You can dislike something and tell everyone why and shitpost and be a cunt about it. Sadly most people don't.
Yeah I don't get the hate. it's a nice homage to an earlier Dalek story. Did people go ape shit over Victory of the Daleks because it was similar to Power of the Daleks? No, it was just a fucking homage paying tribute to an earlier story that people loved.
For your first point
but didn't the Doctor, particularly the tenth, mention growing up on gallifrey, how beautiful it looked, the sky, the suns, the mountains, and I believe it was in Sound of Drums that the Master also mentioned him and the doctor being children growing up on Gallifrey and playing in the Master's father's land/fields or whatever. Plus why would a Gallifreyan grow up anywhere but Gallifrey, and how would you otherwise become a Time lord (mind you I admittedly have not watched the classic series so nuwho is all I know)
And for the second point
but that's my problem with it, being a plot device is part of her character and they've kept it as part of her. She was this plot device that helped and saved the Doctor in series 7b in almost all her episodes and especially in Rings of Akhaten with her "most important leaf" speech. And in Name of the Doctor, she saved every single doctor multiple times. All by courtesy of being a plot device, and she keeps staying a plot device in this episode where she keeps saving, keeps shaping, keeps affecting the Doctor and his past. She keeps being and becoming a more and more important person/factor/plot device in the Doctor's life and experiences with this "I was the monster under your bed, the one who created that fear, who still tried to inspire you that you don't need to "be this or do that" because of fear.
Actually, Deep Breath was my first actual live thread. I asked my friend if it was usually so disgusting, and he agreed.
I'm just going to do what I do best, act simple minded and ask generally nice questions.
Nobody who watched Victory on tumblr watched Power.
Also, I'm going to give my English professor my copy of Jubilee so she can listen to it this weekend. She's going to watch an homage of an homage.
Remember when time was "frozen" (or rather, totally broken) in "The Wedding of River Song?"
Probably like that.
I like to think the Master and Rassilon are still fighting. Probably wrestling barehanded now. With oil. Hmm. In The Hot Tub of Rassilon.
>Did people go ape shit over Victory of the Daleks because it was similar to Power of the Daleks?
No, they went ape shit because it was bad and wasted those lovely Ironside designs for skittles.
I really like the way in more recent stories Moffat uses plot elements and characters to parallel the Doctor and/or his companion and their character. I think it might even be what he's known for when people look back at him like Robert Holmes double acts.
He does it a couple different ways in Deep Breath, he also does it in Day of the Doctor and Listen
Romana was the specialest of all companions
Right, if it had happened to be Sarah it would have played out similarly. Its not because Clara is super Spucial
but because Clara happened to be the one with him. And the Doctor is clearly unsure if it was a dream and didn't remember the soldier, we don't have any indication that it completely changed his life just that it might have been a factor in his growing up.
within the context of the episode, wasn't Clara the monster under the Doctor's bed and the memory of that experience, the catalyst for Capaldis' Doctor to ponder about "perfect hiding", to investigate that kind of dream, to go into people's timelines (Clara's) to find an answer, and in fact, Clara being that monster set off the whole plot and the Doctor's kinda paranoia if you can call it that of something being there when there isn't.
Clara mentioned how being afraid (or cowardly, I forget which) doesn't have to make you do bad things, and they flashed the War Doctor, another version of the doctor she "saved". So it's even possible that it was her speech to the Doctor as a child, that created some hesitancy in the Doctor when he had to destroy Gallifrey, although I can't fully support that with a lot of evidence.
spoiler] He was from Gallifrey and/or spent a lot of childhood there. The race of "Gallifreyians" colonized more than one planet though so its entirely plausible he spent some of his years at a colony. Really we just have these little snippets because we don't know about the character before he abandoned his real name.
And Time-Lords were a special caste of Gallifreyian who went to the Academy, excelled and were granted regenerations. Presumably it wasn't limited to only those who were born on the mother planet.
As for Clara, I think that because it grew organically out of her character this time she wasn't just a plot device. But this is personal opinion. I also think people are over thinking the importance because we have so little information about his childhood. I really don't think this was a major life changing experience. He was clearly already on the path to going to the academy and clearly wasn't even sure if this actually happened for a long time.
It's odd, leading up to Clara the companion arcs and shit were beginning to annoy me but I'm ok with Clara even though she has by far the biggest character arc and role. I still hope they go completely minimal with the next companion but I think it's just JCo that makes Clara work for me.
I find him to be decent so far. He was disappointing in Listen though. Orson felt like a nothing character even though the script gave him some potentially good scenes to make an impression.
I think it stands out because Capaldi is so good and Jenna is stepping up more now that she is opposite Capaldi. If he was opposite Matt and Amy, I don't think you would even notice
a lot of what Clara tells the young Doctor is what she heard the Doctor tell Rupert, and what she's learned from being with the Doctor so long. It's a loop that represents the Doctor/Companion relationship in the show
I guess that's fair enough then, considering that there isn't much information, I concede that it is entirely plausible that he grew up on a colony, but that still means that my original point that the Tardis being able to travel back to a pre time war version of the universe and even the Doctor's own childhood is strange, still stands. Although thanks for the clarification on Gallifreyan colonization.
And as for Clara, I guess it is a bit subjective, but I'm still staying wary of her, she overall was the spark that set up the plot for this episode, which as it turns out is a paradox. She being the creature under the bed led to the Doctor investigating it, being a bit paranoid, and seeing/perceiving things that weren't really there in the episode which ultimately led to her becoming the creature under his bed in the first place.
>Tardis being able to travel back to a pre time war version of the universe and even the Doctor's own childhood is strange, still stands
He turned the safeties off otherwise it probably wouldn't be able to.
Then couldn't that mean that almost any race with time travel technology could theoretically do the same.
Could Daleks theoretically reignite the war or still try to affect the outcome by traveling to pre-time war gallifrey or somewhere in the pre time war universe, knowing that the Time Lords can't then attack or strike back at the Daleks that are outside the Time lock.
We don't have details on how the time-lock works. This is on purpose because the details are probably not worked out. Hell we don't even know who set up the time-lock in the first place. We also don't know how close the barn planet was, etc etc
I'll just chalk up the Tardis being able to do it, to it being something that was set up beforehand, in a similar vein to the Doctors' daughter from the episode the Doctor's Daughter. Where due to some paradoxal nature or whatever, this event happened, it will always happen, it must happen cause it has no beginning and has no end but it simply exists and it is what is it and this nature allows special privileges where said event can happen even where and when other people and events can't go, occur or affect
What with Clara only becoming the monster under the bed because the Doctor, remembering a monster under his bed, decides to investigate, brings Clara along and she ends up becoming the very monster in the bed that the Doctor remembered and that set him n on this investigation and hunt.
There are many indications that Gallifrey itself was always under a time-lock. That Rassilon created one as soon as Omega created the Eye of Harmony. This meant no one could go into Gallifrey's past, only to the present. Probably has to do with the transduction barriers.
The Moment, however, seems to be able to trap the war participants outside of that influence in a separate time-lock.
