Found this on my Netflix home page under “Popular on Netflix.” This pleases me.
friendly reminder there are exactly as many official Disney princesses as there are incarnations of the Doctor
Excuse me while I go pair them up into Doctor/Companion Teams and draw them all going on adventures…
Steven Moffat has promised if fans help keep the finale’s secrets, we’ll release a special video featuring Matt & David right after the ep!
I’ve noticed a little something about Doctor Who. It’s hardly been a perfect show for its entire 50 year existence. Bouts of bad writing, intrusion of studio politics, and such have hit the show hard from time to time. But there has always been someone who came along and made it better again.
When the show was cancelled back in the late eighties, it went out unceremoniously and from a variety of factors including declining quality of scripts and declining confidence among executives. But the fanbase remained strong. And in 2005, we got New Who in all of its glory.
Remember the Doctor Who TV movie in 1996? Remember how it included a “plot twist” about the Doctor being half human? Notice how everyone, fans and creators alike, have collectively retconned that particular aspect of the movie?
Anyone remember Dimensions in Time? Also known as the charity-anniversary-special-that-must-not-be-named-because-holy-frig-what-happened-there? Yeah. The fandom has also decided that doesn’t exist.
I guess what I’m trying to say is this: If you happen to think that the show isn’t at its best at the moment, and even if the upcoming anniversary special puts us fans into a mad rage of epic proportions, just know that the show has endured worse - and it will get better.
New people and new ideas will come to breathe life into this beloved series. The good will be remembered and celebrated. The mediocre will be justified. The terrible will be ignored. Time will wash away the bad taste. Because nothing can stop Doctor Who from being awesome.
THE CRIMSON CHIN
It was very.. uh… Meh. Quite especially Meh. Like, the most Meh episode of season 7. A particularly nasty outbreak of recent Who’s i-cant-decide-on-what-tone-or-theme-I’m-going-for-itis.
Oh well. On the bright side, I’m super excited for next week’s Docutus of Borg! :D
