Re: What A Tragic Waste !

There's a thread about this in Tech Ops. MCers who had to use it seem to agree that it was less than ideal.

Re: bfi Flipside releases

Permissive is certainly an exploitation film, but its picture of the "scene" is convincing. It's worth watching it in tandem with Groupie Girl, which was made around the same time and has almost the same plot but doesn't feel real at all.

Re: The All-Purpose Current Doctor Who (2005-) Thread

I wonder why Steven Moffat bothers!! As things stand, I'd much rather he didn't. Re not watching, my personal reaction to the last two years has been a massive sense of disappointment - I actually think Moffat did well in his first year but has since taken the show deeper and deeper into self-indul...

Re: The All-Purpose Current Doctor Who (2005-) Thread

Thinking aloud for one final time do you think that for once they could do a 'new Who' series where they don't tinker with the theme tune or introduce new opening credits? Well, I don't mind changes in the opening titles - short of Clara turning up in them. And the show's music could be so much mor...

Apparently, Eccleston is the Tenth, Tennant the Eleventh and Smith the Twelfth Doctor.

Re: The All-Purpose Current Doctor Who (2005-) Thread

The Name Of The Doctor: what a piece of shit! Quite apart from Moffat's writing having degenerated into complete fanfic with the Clara-was-always-there bit, it was dramatically TURGID, and all the more so the more portentous it got.

There were plenty of fine one-episode stories in the earlier years of New Who. And another 30 minutes of The Rings of Akhaten or The Crimson Horror would be torture.

I've been watching an episode a day and it's well up to the standard of series one, but I wonder why they gave it a completely different (and fairly terrible) opening title sequence?

It wasn't a great episode. There were some large plot holes. The kids were stock characters and irritating with it. Clara continues to blight every scene where she's given centre stage, mainly due to her aura of Unearned Specialness (we enter the Doctor's mind and the first thing we see is a big ima...

I wasn't looking forward to this one - I thought The Doctor's Wife was a thoroughly dull episode, quite apart from the personified Tardis crap - but it really wasn't bad.

Watched the episode "Over A Barrel" the other night, and was a bit startled to see Christopher Benjamin and Marianne Stone cast as Asian immigrants in very obvious browning-up. Even in 1969 that must have looked questionable.

I don't think New Who is in ratings trouble, but more episodes like Journey To The Centre Of The Tardis wouldn't do it any good. It wasn't a disaster, just very uninspired.
