Mid 1980's middle class drama student questioning her sexual identity under the influence of third-wave feminism. That's the vibe the costume gives off and it's just pointlessly sad what the show has been reduced to by a fourth rate hack

LOL
She looks awful, and that "arc" (if true) sounds awful.
This trainwreck just keeps getting funnier by the week. Big Grin

Terrible outfit. As bad as Colin Bakers. A part of me is beginning to wonder if Chinballs has it in for the show! I did always suspect that little dweeb in The Greatest Show in the Galaxy was based on him. Maybe he never got over it?

I just find it amazing how all these showrunners were supposed fans of the real show, yet appear to understand nothing about why it was good and are dead set on wrecking everything it stood for...

Indeed, but there is an explanation for that. They are self loathing fanboys. They like DW, but having lived through that period where the show was unpopular, they refuse to EVER go back to that, so they'll basically whore the show out to the latest fad in order to be popular.

Now this worked throughout the Tennant era where the fad they went for was the Buffy/Angel fad, but sooner or later when all you're doing is "lets make it like whatever's popular" then you are going to back money on the wrong horse.

Particularly as you get older, and fall out of touch, and become sealed in your own celeb bubble, away from the world. That's what's happened here.

Moffat, like a lot of celebrity idiots thinks that identity politics, third wave feminism, and SJW crap is trendy (even with the demonstrable failure of GB 2016 and Marvel and DC), because he lives in a celeb, "liberal" bubble, so he started to tailor the show to that.

Now to be fair its not uncommon for the writers of DW to take influence from other series, works, films, comic books etc. The point is however in the past they might have used those things as the basis of stories, but they never completely changed the character of the Doctor.

Like take for instance Jon Pertwee. You can see a clear influence from Bond there. Gadgets, fast cars, dapper British gentleman, has to stop mustache twirling villains from causing WW3 like in The Mind of Evil.

However they didn't have him shag his companions because Bond did that. He was still the same asexual, arrogant, old professorial type figure.

With Tennant however, they wanted to make him like Angel and Xena, but they had him fall in love with a little blonde teenager like them which was completely against the character.

And having the Master become a bisexual, transexual, jealous ex of the Doctor was obviously completely against that character too, but again the self loathing fanboy is a whore whose desperate to be popular so he'll throw everything about the show and its traditions out the window if need be.

I think DW attracts more self loathing fanboys because it was more mainstream. Star Trek was a flop at first, and had to work hard to be popular. Its fans however are content that if it goes off again "well we were fine before".

Xena, Buffy, Red Dwarf and all the other genre classics are cult shows, where as DW was a mainstream show, that became a cult one in the 90's and so I think a lot of DW fans are spoiled and not content with the show just being that, hence why we have a massive amount of self loathing fanboys.

As reported earlier, photos of Jodie have vanished from that twitter account I linked to. A part of a major crackdown by the BBC in preventing further leaks!

If you saw The One Show last night, you'll know Bradley was making light of just how covert the production has become under Chibnall...you'd be forgiven if you thought he wasn't being serious at some points, but he was. Apparently he, Jodie and the cast have to take their ID cards wherever the production moves to, and Chibnall is deliberately leaving in errors in the scripts so that he knows precisely what gets out into the social media wilderness

Serves them right. From all the horror stories I've heard about the DWSR regulars (including pushing minors out of the way for autographs and aggressively stalking Jenna Coleman) they deserve a right and proper Bruce Gyngil lock out

Chibnall's plans to avoid spoilers and set photos are working brilliantly it seems.
