1 The Chibnall era on Tue Jun 13, 2017 11:30 pm

First words from Chibbers:

He talks a lot less like a twat than Mofftwat, and even admits the new series has gone off the boil! Big Grin

I'm not sure. Its good that he is acknowledging that the show is failing but this was the reason his friend gave.

For me, when it goes towards story­lines that are a little bit more for the fans, I think you can lose that general appeal. I think Chris is going to offer a slightly different take on what the show should be.

What the actual fuck? The problem with the Capaldi era is that its too much for the fans! Yeah cause fans love all of these things don't they.









I honestly can't think of an era not just of Doctor Who, but of anything that spits in the faces of actual fans more. Saying that the problem is that it is made for us is the last fucking insult. As a life long fan I wish the Capaldi era could be scrubbed from canon forever and I know I am not alone.

The Peter Capaldi era was made for SJW fucktards, Tumblerina's and whiney third wave feminists and as a result like anything made for them such as the new Ghostbusters movie its been a fucking disaster and a massive flop.

Here are some reviews from actual fans of the show.





Here meanwhile are what whiney little feminists who can't watch anything unless its all about their fucking political movement thought of it.

I think that demonstrates the audience Moffat and co are after which is why its viewers have literally slipped to the lowest they have ever been!

I think he probably just means in term of fanwank. You can't deny it's gone off the scale in the Moffat era, and even more so in the Capaldi era.

You've got a cheek. All you do is just call everybody sexist.

Plus this is relevant to the topic at hand. We were discussing why Doctor Who has gone wrong, and I brought up what I feel that is. What are we not supposed to say that because you get triggered?

Do you have to white knight for Penny EVERY single time she gets into a disagreement with someone here? Even when it contradicts what YOU have said in the past about SJW's. Like when you whined about Class's diverse cast just being there for the creators to virtue signal?

Imagine how tedious it would be if every time someone disagreed with Iank, they had to deal with me, Rawkuss, Adam Ant, and Mott1 jumping down their throats?

As another user pointed out its hilarious that what happens is basically Penny accuses people of being sexists and then when someone disagrees they have to deal with you and Mike. Don't get me wrong since your "arguments" are usually just "you hate women cause you're a virgin" or something highly original like that, then they are easy to deal with, but its just hilarious that Penny the strong willed feminist has to get two white knights to fight her corner every single time.

I'd be offended if I were you Penny.

Also finally Seal how many female led shows do you like? Well since I apparently can't stand any shows that star strong women how many do you like? You got all of Xena, Buffy, Charmed, Dark Angel, Ghost Whisperer, Alien film series, Nikita, Once Upon A Time, Survivors, The Bionic Woman on DVD like I have?

And I wouldn't have thought a guy who constantly goes on about Pearl Mackie being too ugly to be the companion is very feminist.

Anyway getting back on topic I think its too early to really judge Chibnall. Even the fact that he is a good or bad writer is nothing to go by.

Barry Letts IMO was a crap writer for DW but definitely one of, if not the best producers for the show. Similarly Moff wrote excellent episodes for RTD but was the worst showrunner who has almost driven the show into the ground!

Also all the things about restoring the show to what it once was have been said many times before. All we can do is wait sadly.

Some possible information [I've heard some of these rumours before, particularly the thing about the Great Vampires, the Sunday time slot is new]

Absolute bollocks, made up on a whim just because Chibbers diplomatically said a season long story like Broadchurch wasn't "impossible" when asked by an interviewer.
This seems to forget he also said he wanted to make it more mainstream and less fan-oriented again. So he's gonna do a season-long story about Time Lords and the Great Vampires. Somehow I think not...

I wouldn't be against a season-long story like Torchwood : Children Of Earth, arguably the best Nu Who product. If it's like Miracle Day tho forget it - I hope he looks at the strengths and weaknesses of both approaches.

John Barrowman seems less of an arse than Moffat. It's like saying Idi Amin killed fewer people than Mao Ze-Dong - but I d agree, though. Very Happy

Listen to what he's saying. The main focus is going to be on big, bold emotional beats.

Hope that doesn't mean more RTD-style gush.

I wasn't all that fond of RTD initially but his era has grown on me. He handles emotion and writes better characters than SM. So a step backward is a step forward in my opinion. But I think by the law of averages we should expect a showrunner who will connect with both fandom and the public in a way that will usher in some sort of high-point.

I am really going to have to watch Broadchurch soon as that has to be the biggest indicator of what will come next. I have heard good things.

DW is never going to come back in the more plot-driven kind of format it used to have. I would like that but it won't. Chibnall is a modern writer who will write a modern show, I imagine.

Oh, and please no bloody Kris Marshall. I think that would just be an acknowledgment that DW slipped under Moffat and is desperately trying to regain some of the former popularity it had under RTD. People say that Moffat laid the groundwork for DW becoming big in America but I think that RTD laid the ground work and it was more because of him - not sure it's a good thing either way.

And, look, the only other name being bandied around is Kris Marshall, and he’s such a lazy choice that he’d be in danger of killing the series dead. There’s something depressing about the prospect of a Kris Marshall Doctor. There’s no risk to him. He’d be a Doctor designed by committee. He’d be a fake Irish pub of a Doctor. He doesn’t have the sparkily fierce intellect or the towering sharpness... He plays people who worry about the internet. He isn’t suited at all...

That quote from the Guardian sums him up for me.

Yeah, giving Moffat the credit for its popularity in the US is a joke. He happened to be in charge when BBC America kicked off. Big deal.
