>tfw no Series 10 this year Edition
Last year >>64481657
At least we'll have comics and audios.
Yes, it is, you can, and you will, or this board will be over. I'll show you and all your funny little friends to the whole laughing world. I'll bring /mlp/, I'll bring /r9k/. Give me a minute, I'll bring /b/ and /pol/. You will save /who/, and you will do it now, or I will rain hell on you for the rest of time.
Which New Covent Garden Soup flavour is each Doctor?
it got closed because theres no spoilers or anything to speculate about
Not according to Girly Letters.
WHO IS LEAVING GALLIFREY BASE BECAUSE OF THAT
OH MY GOD NO STAY
I HATE HER SJW SHIT BUT SHE WAS ACTUALLY GIVING REAL SPOILERS AND LOCATION PICS
It was good. Definitely better than the UNIT boxset.
This one at least had four discs' worth of content, not four stretched-out episodes that struggled to reach 40 minutes of length.
>heaven sent tier
Now that may be a bit too much, but Signs was very good. And actually reminiscent of Heaven Sent in places.
So apparently filming has been moved from May to April.
This is screaming split series to me.
Filming for one block (= 2 episodes) takes about 5 weeks.
Early April to Early May: Ep. 1 and 2
Early May to Mid June: Ep. 3 and 4
Mid June to late July (including a 2 weeks break for Comic Con): Ep. 5 and 6
Early August to mid September: Christmas special
Mid September to late October: Ep. 7 and 8
Early November to mid December: Ep. 9 and 10
Early January to mid-February: Ep. 11 and 12
White Man's Burden get
Egyptian Escapade get
Sting of the Zygons get
Moon Landing get
The Art of Destruction get
St Anthony's Fire get
I swear if Cumberbitch and Watson decide they don't have the time for Sherlock and say at the last minute they can't film thus fucking up Who's filming schedule for FUCKING NOTHING IN THE END, I will take measures.
>That's my secret, Cap, I'm always angry.
Wow this thread is going so fast I can barely keep up!
I need you /who/ :
I got "To the Death" at christmas.
But some anon told me I'm not supposed to listen to it before I heard some other stories.
Could /who/ be kind engough to tell me which one I should check before ? It will be my first time with audio Who.
>implying she isn't better
I havent watched Doctor Who since mid-way through series 8. I love Capaldi as The Doctor but I just wasn't feeling anything else about it. I'm curious to get back into it, though. What episodes of series 9 are most worth a watch? Episodes that tie in heavily to the over arching plot, or just really solid episodes? Would like to avoid the mostly "filler" sort of episodes. Like episodes where The Doctor is a background character in his own show, for example.
It's a grand finale to the cycle called "The New Eighth Doctor Adventures" you probably should listen to the all. At least to the final season if nothing elese. At least to "Lucie Miller" if everything else fails because you just listened to the second part of the story.
>You will never live in chubby Amy's thighs.
>mfw I was trolling GB with fake spoilers during Series 8 filming, saying Clara wouldn't recognise the Doctor in Deep Breath, he lied to her and kept things from her, and ultimately that the Master would return in female form
>mfw I made all that up and it all actually happened in the series a few months later
rtd confirmed uglier than moffat
i liked the opening two parter but if you didn't like S8 at all not sure if you'd like it
watch heaven sent at least, best episode of nuwho
It's technically the second part of "Lucie Miller". But that two-parter is the finale to series 4 of the NEDAs, and as such resolves plot threads that involve most of the season's episode. And it's also the climax to the Doctor's adventures with Lucie, which started way back in series 1.
You could just listen to Lucie Miller/To the Death, but my recommendation is to catch up on the most important stories of the range before:
Blood of the Daleks, part 1
Blood of the Daleks, part 2
Horror of Glam Rock
No More Lies
Human Resources, part 1
Human Resources, part 2
Grand Theft Cosmos
The Zygon Who Fell to Earth
Sisters of the Flame (part 1)
Vengeance of Morbius (part 2)
The Eight Truths (part 1)
Worldwide Web (part 2)
Death in Blackpool
An Earthly Child
The Book of Kells
Deimos (part 1)
The Resurrection of Mars (part 2)
Lucie Miller (part 1)
To the Death (part 2)
he got godlike earlier
Plot important episodes: The Magician's Apprentice/The Witch's Familiar, The Girl Who Died/The Woman Who Lived (Woman Who Lived is pretty shit, just warning you), Face the Raven
Best episodes: The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion, Heaven Sent/Hell Bent
Absolutely skip at all costs: Sleep No More
The Earthly Child, Time and Relative Dimensions, Lucie Miller.
Those are the 3 vital ones you need, the first one because it introduces Alex, the second because it shows Lucie leaving the TARDIS in a certain century [sorry if I'm being vague, I don't know how sensitive you are about spoilers or what quantifies as one to you], the third because To the Death is Part 2 of a 2 parter, the first one being Lucie Miller.
To the Death has some of the best McGann acting. Also some of the best destroy everything the Doctor cares for plotlines.
>Clara wouldn't recognise the Doctor in Deep Breath, he lied to her and kept things from her,
uhhh? that didn't happen?
oops forgot photo
She thought it wasn't the Doctor and wanted to change him back. Also see the scene where 11 calls her and she's like "Yeah you're the Doctor the old guy isn't". Also he lies to her in MOTOE when saying they're on vacation but it's actually Gus who had summoned them.
Almost all episodes are paired up, but there's not much of real plot. I'm going to give you quick rundown of advantages and disadvantaged
1&2 A story with strong comedic tone, Daleks, Missy (I bet you don't even know who she is), Davros and everybody is trying to be smartest guy in the room. I didn't like it much, but many did.
3&4 slow-paced adventure. If you are into endless corridors and a plot split between two time period, you might like it. Even though resolution overall is unsatisfying
5: Comedy episode. Beginning of what one might call an arc. Not terribly funny or exciting, but not terribly terrible either. Ever watched Game of Thrones? Is Arya Stark your favourite character? She better be, or you are in a world of pain.
6: This one is just plain lazy. But also part of the arc. Has its moments, but less so
7&8: Thrilling episodes about Zygons. Ever wondered what happened to Zygons in The Day of the Doctor. Now you find out. Parallels to refugee crisis in heaps and imply rather strange opinions on writers' parts
9: This one was just boring and hard to see. Might be worth it for a twist. Probably not. Also maybe you like to laugh in a middle of horror exposition.
10: This one was pretty good. Probably has flaws, but I liked it too much to name any
11: Everyone loved. Even I. And I'm even willing to ignore plot holes
12: Well, it's a finale, so it has lots of flash, random nonsense, plot twists that don't match anything plotted before that. But you should expect that.
Nice, I had to download Earthly Child and a few pre Eighth Doctor adventures because they were during a cycle where Big Finish decided to make them more expensive, or when I didn't have an Amazon gift card, or because Earthly Child was a special. I don't even know if it is sold atm, couldn't find it. Had to pirate it from audiobookbay.
Welcome to the Big Finish universe, you will have a blast.
That's just lazy.
Name all of them.
You can't, your brain can't take in all the amazing shit that happened in the episode and is desperately trying to find flaws.
>tfw you remember Peter Capaldi is not and will never be your grandpa
They are not so much holes (Considering what is actually happening, everything can be explained) as they are elements that don't seem to match further plot development.
Why did stars move?
Why wall was even there?
Why wall led where it led if Doctor wasn't supposed to break it (My first assumption was that he was meant to break it as part of the plan, but it didn't match actual plot of Hell Bent)
>Why did stars move?
You cannot be serious. Are you stupid?
>Why wall was even there?
To give him hope and dash his hopes to get him to confess. So he's aware a wall stronger than steel or diamond exists between him and Home, his exit from this torture. Time Lords are fucking dumb when it comes to the Doctor, so they did not expect him to use the system and the teleportation against them.
Would The Magician's Apprentice/The Witch's Familiar be better if Clara/Missy weren't in it and the episode went straight from the intro scene to 12/OlderDavros scenes?
I actually enjoyed both episodes, especially the Clara/Missy scenes but someone mentioned that online and it kind of sounds slightly better.
Star Wars EU was canon because Lucasfilm literally had a group of people whose job it was to sign off on all EU materials while making sure none of them contradicted each other or otherwise contained inconsistencies. It was actually quite impressive and it's the reason that things like Wookiepedia, autistic as it is, can exist the way it does. Then Disney just decided to fuck all that hard work in the ass and throw it out the window because it was easier than trying to fit their movies into the EU.
The smallest glimmer of hope makes futility have more impact.
Even fucking shit fests like Hunger Games talked about this.
Give him a glimpse of what awaits, and how he can never attain it. That hurts more than just depriving him entirely.
>Not real stars
I thought they were Gallifreyan stars, reflecting reality. Just like how water is wet and reflects reality in the confession dial, or how time still passes.
That's why he also reacts saying that he can't be "here."
>You will never lick Capaldi's porridged semen out of a 50 year old Jenna Coleman's hairy arse and minge.
Why, because you like shit like City of Angels?
Maybe Neverwhere and Dresden Files are decent examples.
Besides those outliers Urban Fantasy has the most generic, unimaginative stories compared to High Fantasy because the author cannot build their own world.
I feel Doctor Who is exempt from this because of the extreme unique variation the TARDIS brings to a narrative.
To me, things like Quantum Thief and Book of the New Sun are more imaginative than what urban fantasy brings to the table.
Even Wheel of Time reflects current world issues and idiosyncrasies more than most urban fantasy I've been exposed to.
Again, only Gaiman and some of Dresden is exempt imho.
I was arguing that Urban fantasy unless you include unique scenarios isn't more "weird" or "imaginative."
I also enjoy RPGs immensely [my favorite games are Planescape and KOTOR 2], and enjoyed Keys of Marinus.
However I was just wanting to talk with him about imagination of urban fantasy, and hoping to get some reccomendations in his retaliation, because I know /tv/ hates outright suggestion begging.
Well sorry if I came off aggressive. I've just surrounded by women that claim to love urban fantasy and haven't actually found decent urban fantasy.
Tennant will be back as Kilgrave, right guys? Right?
>Who says I'm not, red bicycle when you were twelve?
Holy shit, that line finally makes sense now
He's definitively dead anon. I honestly think it's a poor choice by those showrunners to eliminate their best actor (by far) and the best part of their show, but hey, I guess nobody's ever permanently dead in capeshit and he could come back
We can't really say that
Have you seen the episode from a parallel universe where it was made? Do you know the Doctor's reasons for acting that way?
Then you can't say it was OOC. You can't possibly decide that from a three-line synopsis.
The Doctor working with some aliens to conquer Gallifrey would be OOC, and yet The Invasion of Time happened.
>Have you seen the episode from a parallel universe where it was made? Do you know the Doctor's reasons for acting that way?
how could you possibly make that in character? i can't even imagine 7 doing that. it also would have huge long term effects on the show going forward and plus the episode would have only been 45 minutes. i can't imagine it have been anything more than a huge mess. paul abbott is a good writer but his idea just sounds bad.
The 9th Doctor was different in a lot of ways from the classic Doctors. It would have seemed out of character for the Doctor to destroy Gallifrey in the classic series, but it happened because one of the things the new series did was reinvent the Doctor's character and make him a bit darker. If they had wanted to make the Doctor a mastermind who, weary of traveling with so many stupid apes, engineers himself an ideal companion, I think they could have made it work.
>It sounds no worse than the Doctor locking his companion out of the TARDIS and leaving her to die, but that happened in The Girl Who Waited.
That's upsetting and cruel, yes, but not in a way that actually fucks with the very nature of the show. There would be something terribly hollow about a relationship between the Doctor and someone he constructed to be his ideal friend.
>There would be something terribly hollow about a relationship between the Doctor and someone he constructed to be his ideal friend.
Again, not necessarily.
It would depend on how exactly it happened, how the episode played it, and what the consequences were.
I am not a writer, I can't come up with a plot.
All I'm saying is that it seems a bit simplistic to say it's OOC based on what little we know, since Davies and Abbot thought it could work.
DREZZIN FOR THE OCCAZION
You're letting it die again
We don't know
capaldi seems to think he is (or was forced to lie because NDAs) but they aren't starting filming for a few months, no new companion has been announced and the christmas special didn't end with a 'doctor who will return with The Fucking of Moff' so those all point to them being a bit behind on the production schedule were they to be producing 12 episodes this year
Moff's priority at the moment is filming sherlock S4 in this next month or two
Okay /who/, I just rewatched Heaven Sent and it's still one of my favorite episodes. So I have to ask, has anyone's opinion of it changed as a result of Hell Bent?
Also curious, when you rank stories would you rank each one individually or the story as a whole? Personally I would always rank two-parters as I would classic serials being just one story, but I just can't put these two stories together.
Probably a jipp, does isn't to flippant from Gallifrey, but Doctor Who was gallant from the 24th Century.
I think it'll be a split series again. Capaldi and Moffat publicly claimed the rumors were garbage, but those were about a shorter series 10 and the motivation behind it being Capaldi's aspirations to work on other projects. Capaldi said doing more than 12 stories would take away from the quality of writing, but he more recently said he'd be down for doing a longer series. I kind of feel like his inital claim was only relevant to series 10, like you said Moffat is too busy with Sherlock and rushing to finish series 10 before the end of the year wouldn't be good for the show.
Actually it isn't. Face the Raven is story 259, HS/HB is story 260. Moffat said they there was a lot of debating whether or not the last two should be considered one story. I think Moffat was on the "separate episodes" side, claiming the final three are all linked but if FtR isn't included then neither should Heaven Sent.
>Capaldi said he's going to be directing a few episodes of Veep
He also said his side projects won't interfere with Who in response to the rumors he was the one that wanted a short series to do other things.
he said back in September that he was "about to" direct a couple episodes
for all we know he could've done it already
Sometimes I think Doctor Who is too advanced for this time zone.
Since /who/ died, let's post some classy Capaldies.
>"I fucking hate doctor who."
- Christopher Eccleston, 2016
what did he mean by this?
>Peter when he walked on the classic TARDIS, he had thought about ‘How am I going to run this? Am I going to be like William Hartnell or not?’ And he had thought that through and he said “I try not, you know, I’m trying, I am my own Doctor.’ but it seemed important to know, to remind himself of the actual vocabulary of what William Hartnell did before.
>At one point he just, he did an entire…this is where you go crazy ‘cos you just wish you had just taped everything going on, every rehearsal, every time and…at one point he did a full on William Hartnell version of it and those things are lost in the ether and are just, you know, wonderful moments that you can’t believe the good luck in your life that you got to observe that.
>at one point he did a full on William Hartnell version of it
oh fuuuuuuuuuck. will this be on the deleted scenes? please moffat, deliver the goods to us.
read on gb that moffat was in the dw experience recently and he briefed some of the staff on whats coming for series 10.
new companion is 'older', 'reluctant' and 'someone who doesnt think they should travel'
>tfw the drop in quality from series 10 to series 11 is going to be the biggest since series 1 to series 2
>The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion
>Hell fucking Bent
So if the rumors about Moffat and Capaldi leaving after S10 are true, what will happen to the new companion? Will they write her out at the end of the season to allow for an Eleventh Hour-style full overhaul?
I remember more from it than I do most episodes in S9. For instance, I literally cannot recall anything from either of the Zygon episodes except notClara blowing up a plane and the Doctor having some speech about war for a good 5 minutes or so.
Probably. The new companion and Capaldi's Doctor will probably die in the same episode. I'm imagining when Capaldi leaves it will be a complete blank canvas. New logo, new TARDIS etc.
Its looking as if Capaldi might regenerate Xmas 2017 if S10 is split between later this year and spring 2017
i doubt s10 is being split
both moffat and capaldi said they disliked the recent time slots and think the show should be earlier.
i'd rather just get a christmas special next year and then a full run in January or something.
they start filming in 3 months so the companion has almost definitely been cast. what i hope doesnt happen is:
>Series 10 part 1, October - December 2016
>Capaldi regenerates, 2016 Xmas, huge cliffhanger, unexpected and unannounced regeneration
>Series 10 Part 2, April-June 2017 - New Doctor
The needs promotion and the public's attention.
They can't(because someone will leak the info) hide it and they shouldn't(especially if the new Doctor is female or black)
Doctor Who desperately needs more publicity.
because publicity. I never would have watched that one show that announced Capaldi as the next Doctor if it wasn't for the Doctor Who connection.
Smith was also announced ages before the regeneration, and Eccleston's fallout was made public right after the airing of Rose.
I'd love to see someone like Rowan Atkinson as the Doctor. I know he was in that shit sketch but i think he would be great.
I think the next Doctor should be troughton-ish. Like a short, quick witted scruffy sort of bohemian who gives no fucks.
>tfw we get a black woman or dashing young guy
this photo was a mistake
i knew better but I saw tons of people online who thought this was smiths official costume, the tardis in the backround didn't help either
>A month from now, Eccleston will be announced to be on Big Finish, and you'll cream yourselves so much you won't notice that Nic Briggs will be the main writer
- Phil Sandifer
What did he mean by this?
I actually love the original ideas for Smith's costume.
The black one would've been GOAT. the pirate one is shit though
Did he really say that? It's pretty retarded if he did.
When Hurt was announced, people did react to Briggs being the writer. But we also knew that other writers would come along.
Also, if Eccleston audios were announced, I'd cream myself even if the writer was Matrixlord, thank you very much.
I think the pirate one was Moffat's idea.
Thank god he wasn't forced to wear it or something like JNT did Colin with the fucking rainbow coat.
News about Big Finish's main range releases for April to June:
And You Will Obey Me
>Fifth Doctor & Beevers Master
>Written by Alan Barnes
Vampire of the Mind
>Sixth Doctor & MacQueen Master
>Written by Justin Richards
>Seventh Doctor, Beevers Master & MacQueen Master
>Written by John Dorney
Are you bullshitting. don't fuck with me m8 that sounds fkin amazing.
>Fivey and Sixie finally get to face off against the Master on audio.
>based Beevers and Macqueen
Don't play with my heart.
>mfw it's true (at least according to GB, the source is the new DWM)
>And You Will Obey Me - Staring Peter Davison -Released April
>The Fifth Doctor arrives at a quiet churchyard in the English Countryside - the last supposed resting-place of the Geoffrey Beevers Master. But alien forces have gathered around, determined to ensure the Master will not rest in peace.
>Vampire of the Mind - Written by Justin Richards and Staring Colin Baker - Released May
>The Sixth Doctor suspects the hand of his oldest enemy behind a spate of mysterious disappearances but will he even recognise this 'new' Master., when he arrives at the scene of one of their earlier encounters?
>The Two Masters - Written by John Dorney and Staring Sylvester McCoy - Released June
>The Seventh Doctor is drawn into a desperate battle with his arch-enemy - squared!
The best thing about all this is McCoy facing Beevers again. I've been waiting for this since I heard Master.
I really REALLY want 12 to go "I'm the Doctor, I save people, I teach them things..." and in the finale there's a scene of some guy saying "Who the fuck are you to come and 'save' us? Who gave you the right?". Capaldi would be perfect like that. But seeing how Death in Heaven killed the idea I'm not holding much hope.
I dont know how true that is, but i did hear that Smith was pushed out and given a huge paycheck to leave.
You can sort of tell by the way he was at the 12th doctor announcement show and how he kept saying he wished he had another year
I should mention, I'm not saying they fired him I have no proof. It's just what I believe. It's just my opinion.
I heard that too, seems like they wanted a new direction and pushed Matt to leave, fucking up Moffat's plan for Series 8 and the closure of the Silence arc.
i dont know why they did it if true, maybe because he was doing that film for hollywood?
but i certainly think it happened, after all moffat resolved the entire era in 1 rushed episode, which felt like it was written very last minute.
plus remember when smith said he was going o be in series 8 then two months later we get the announcement that he's leaving
what? That sounds like a pretty shitty attitude to have towards smith.
I mean, why? He was even popular as fuck. Sometimes I feel like the whole behind the scenes is a complete trainwreck and everyone hates each other.
That's what Eccleston made it sound like back in S1 anyway.
They're replaying Mummy on BBCA and its reminding me just how GOAT S8 actually got
>Jelly babies in the cigar case
>Genuine intrigue for its mystery
>Makes use of the one decent thing KtM brought to the table
It's the little things
How do you go from that AND Flatline to this
Those are some qt goobers you got there.
>ywn have a threesome with them
>ywn satisfy them like the Capaldick does
>ywn be capaldi having regular sex with Jenna
>ywn be Arthur getting cucked by Karen
>ywn have them make those faces at you
>ywn cuddle with them and watch their Doctor who episodes
Not even worth being alive family
>tfw capaldi probably fucked jenna daily
>tfw in the show karen was little amy's 'future' yet In real life she looks better than her after all these years.
>mfw there's a chance i'll hate the next era and become one of those fans I hate who complain about literally everything but still watch the show
