the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 16:42 (two years ago) link

So are we looking forward to this? I'm liking the new-broom approach to the casting/costume, and much as I enjoyed the last series (a lot), the fact that it ended with two incarnations of the Master in a Cybermen origins story that culminated in a surprise appearance from the Hartnell Doctor indicates a freshen up might be in order.

But jesus, Chibnall's previous Doctor Who sits on a spectrum of bland to poor - some of the most unmemorable episodes in recent memory. Or am I being pessimistic?

(cheeky plug: we review Chibnall's Silurian two-parter on the most recent edition of my Doctor Who podcast - http://www.illexplainlater.com/post/166422653503/episode-27-land-of-make-believe - where we discussed some of this stuff...)

v much looking forward to seeing how jodie whittaker plays it, v much apprehensive about everything else

drinkmaster sealcup at yr service (bizarro gazzara), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:04 (two years ago) link

The whole show has been feeling very tired and in need of a new injection of ideas for quite some time now. On the other hand I've never seen Broadchurch and most of the episodes Chibnall had written have felt like mid-series filler so I dunno if he's the guy to provide them.

Matt DC, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:10 (two years ago) link

The incredibly shoddy photoshopped TARDIS behind Whitaker's Mork cosplay in the promo photo sets the tone for exactly the level of quality I expect from ol' Chinballs.

Boring writer doesn't neccessariy mean boring showrunner, I'm hoping.

chap, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:20 (two years ago) link

I am excited the same way I am excited for any new actor who takes on the role of the Doctor. I'm also looking forward to the Doctor-companion interaction and which parts will change and which parts will stay the same. I also enjoyed most of Chibnall's Who stories and think his worst work appeared in the first season of Torchwood.

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:22 (two years ago) link

I did read somewhere that he was planning to have more season-long storylines, which is the opposite direction things should be going in imo. A series of only very loosely connected, straighforward one and two parters each written by a different good writer would do the job fine.

chap, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:26 (two years ago) link

I get that on the one hand, but on the other hand the current Golden Age of Television is really strong on bingeable serialized stories that last the whole season, plus his biggest critical praise came from doing that with Broadchurch.

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:29 (two years ago) link

I think the problem with recent Doctor Who arcs is that they're neither fish nor fowl - an awkward mix of 'arc episodes' and deliberately less important standalones that fails to really build to any sort of dramatic crescendo or are rushed at the final stages. I'd be fine with either 10 completely discrete episodes or a single 10-part story (an updated spin on The Daleks' Masterplan would suit me very nicely).

bamboohouses, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:36 (two years ago) link

I think RTD's first season was the only to really pull off its "arc" - unless you count the Riversong episodes as a single story (and why not - at least "Wedding..." finally gave it a satisfying ending).

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:49 (two years ago) link

S1 barely had an arc, just some flash frames of graffiti shot later on and inserted into episodes months after they'd been written

S5 had a fantastic, coherent, satisfyingly complicated plot arc (only undermined by Rory's prop badge), and the first two Capaldi years together pulled off successful parallel character arcs

shackling the masses with plastic-wrapped snack picks (sic), Thursday, 9 November 2017 17:57 (two years ago) link

TBH I'd be happy to settle for the show being fun again and it hasn't felt like that for ages.

Maybe I read too many Virgin/BBC novels but I can't point at a single season of the reboot that I would say is anti-fun, including Tennant's first season (which is the only one I haven't seen every episode of despite owning multiple copies of it)

xp ulysses you crazy, Matt Smith's first season was the best yet.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:05 (two years ago) link

i agree, first matt smith season is one of the most classic

I demand much less from Who then all of you. I'm happy if it's marginally entertaining which it consistently is. I don't care for her suspenders, but I like her coat, and I think she'll be an interesting doctor. I'm more concerned with three full time companions; that pushes this too far into an ensemble which makes me wonder if they will let her carry the show or not.

akm, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:09 (two years ago) link

the ONE thing I did grow tired of under Moffatt was the manic pace of every episode though. LIke, 1000 things would happen in some of those smith episodes and they just got impossible to follow. Broadchurch, like it or hate it, has a much more staid pace that I hope he brings to the show.

akm, Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:24 (two years ago) link

I look at it as back to basics with the caveat that the show has often struggled to juggle story arcs for the Doctor and three full-time companions (the most notorious example I can remember being "Kinda", where Nyssa spends the entire story napping in the TARDIS and pops up at the end asking "hey, did I miss anything?")

the Hannah Montana of the Korean War (DJP), Thursday, 9 November 2017 20:27 (two years ago) link

I 100% know Bradley from The Chase (not the Doctor Who story) - what is he like when not being really annoyingly anti-intellectual all the time?

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 November 2017 21:17 (two years ago) link

in cases like this (like with james corden, when he appeared on Who) I'm glad I'm not english and don't have the full context of how annoying this person is supposed to be (I liked corden's turn on who a lot. now that he's inflicted on the US with his own show, I see why people are tired of him though)

re chibnall: i'm excited that it's essentially a minor ~reboot~ (god knows this show needs it) but chibnall's writing has never done anything for me. cyberwoman was one of the worst things that has ever happened, although to be fair it was a really long time ago.

I worry that being Bradley Walsh gameshow host who's never off the telly might overshadow his acting ability.

"Cyberwoman" was terrible but "Exit Wounds", "Countrycide" and, to a lesser degree, "Fragments" were great. I also think his weakest Who story is "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" which I still enjoyed a lot because of how silly it was.

He was chirpy never-off-the-telly gameshow host while he was doing Law & Order UK and it didn't seem to have much of an impact on him then.

dan otm, chibnall's writing didn't stay at "cyberwoman" level thank god. also yeah, it feels wrong bagging "dinosaurs" because it was only ever meant to be the thing that it was. moffat/the bbc clearly wanted silly escapist quasi-blockbusters and that's what the writers delivered.

suspenders are a 'little' costumey and it felt a bit like we were past costumey with capaldi, but I like her coat alot and I'm not sure what people have against culottes, I think they are cute on women.

akm, Saturday, 11 November 2017 04:41 (two years ago) link

suspenders are great on those who are shaped to accomodate them and horrific for everyone else, any suspender backlash is just indicative of the 90% of the population who can't wear them or who tried and failed
if you can pull them off (and Jodi Whittaker definitely can) I say put the pedal to the metal and go for it

“Took Baker Coast”, the new contribution from Mark Gatiss

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Saturday, 11 November 2017 08:08 (two years ago) link

Chibnell really is the worst choice they could've made on an artistic level. I would've thought Gatiss would've been a much more obvious successor, and for all his flaws at least would've injected more vision and personality into his seasons? Quite baffled they didn't go with him.

OTOH rating are still decent, right?

chap, Wednesday, 4 March 2020 09:35 (one month ago) link

Ratings are decent, not "good" but perfectly fine. Appreciation Index scores have slipped, though, and the show's mainly ranking in the top thirty programmes rather than the top ten.

Gatiss didn't really want to do it by the time the job came up, having by then seen what a massive ballache the executive part of the job is, what it requires in terms of being a public figure, and how mentally and physically exhausting the creative side of the role is, after one of his best mates and closest collaborator had been doing it for seven years. Plus it would have gotten in the way of him taking stage acting jobs and painting lessons. (Dare say he would have said yes if asked tho, the big old nerd.)

Even when he'd pitched for the gig in 2001 or w/e it was as part of a team of three - he's never had the hubris to imagine that he's an endless font of loads of different Dr Who stories that aren't basically "old-timey horror classics but with a different monster in"

he's never had the hubris to imagine that he's an endless font of loads of different Dr Who stories that aren't basically "old-timey horror classics but with a different monster in"

This would be a good trait for a showrunner! He'd be open to fostering and incorporating other writers' ideas. And as an overall direction I wouldn't mind the show leaning more towards horror.

Can't believe the state of things has led me to stan for an imaginary version of Mark Gattis.

I got my Doctor Who thrills recently by watching Jethro Tull's 1980 video Slipstream which (as I mentioned in another thread) has powerful Doctor Who energy.

Same here, but I do feel like I’m closer to it right now than I’ve been since Trial of a Timelord. It just seems hard to see how it can be not bad now, until a future show runner comes in and decides to either fully retcon or else just fully ignore this week’s awful bullshit.

(I did actually stop watching some time during the Baker/McCoy period but that was because the BBC started scheduling it against Coronation Street which meant mum wouldn’t let me have it on any more, and we didn’t have a video recorder so I couldn’t tape it).

the last two mccoy seasons felt like they were going somewhere interesting, even if that didn't happen with the show, unlike this cliffhanger. i'd say at least 3 of them were good stories too -- remembrance, the circus one, fenric. unlike the latest seasons which only had one -- demons of the punjab. maybe partial credit for graham's dilemma in rosa.

in terms of rewatching the old show for pleasure i get off the bus after caves of androzani

for reference i was 10 in 1984 and while i watched most of the c.baker episodes on broadcast, it was with a sense of utter confusion as to the show was like this now

when i watch the old show - rarely ATM - it's 90% about sitting in a nostalgic fug, and i probably spend more time appreciating the background details and music than i do the plotting/dialogue

Apparently only 33 stories have rated lower in the whole history of the show since 1963, for what that's worth.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Wednesday, 11 March 2020 02:48 (three weeks ago) link

(That's probably episodes, not stories btw - the old series had 155 stories in 695 episodes, nu-Who has 130 stories in 165 full-length televised eps so far.)


([I don't know that anyone's averaged out each story's ratings across 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12 or 14 episodes, interesting as that would be, but comparing 1960s and 2020 ratings is apples and kumquats anyway: the sort of numbers that have the show plummeting into the 30s on the chart now would have it falling out of its regular place in the 50s-90s in 1968, and did have it falling off the chart altogether in 1989.])

Rewatching the special was fun. I didn’t find Clara especially interesting at the time but she might as well be a Karmazov brother next to Yaz.
