Lol dude, you're posting in a public forum. Don't complain that your point of view is being oppressed when people disagree with you.

'' it seems needless. It is only relevant to this particular episode.'' ....... No it isn't. It's relevant to everything that the Doctor is and everything he has ever done. It even references the first episode with ''fear makes companions of all of us''. It's not even ''random'' because it's built on meticulously crafted backstory in the new stories and Classic series references. You're complaining about nothing, imo, and if you're going to complain, you have to ignore the fact that Moffat is not the only writer to do such things.

''The show survived without going in that direction for almost 51 years - why change it now?'' of any argument you could use against this show for any reason, that is the weakest. Come on. Where do you think the show would be if someone had said ''the show has survived without regeneration for years, why change it now?! The show survived without a massive Time War, why change it now?!!'' etc.

i think it's pretty obvious already that he's not just an ''accessory'', given that he's, you know, important to the story arc.

but by all means keep whining without having seen it, this wouldn't be a Dr Who discussion without your type would it.

He's been running the show for a while now and he might do for a while yet, so thank goodness your opinions on whether he ''deserves'' to or not are irrelevant

That's still homophobia. No one has any right to judge whether gay people are ''wrong'' in their choices. You either accept us on equal footing with heterosexual people or you're homophobic. Period.

Reply

Because a] the length of TV time slots is decided by the BBC, not by tv show producers, the producers have to work with what they are allowed and b] he's talking about doing short, self-contained *episodes*, not prequels. that was literally the point of what he was saying when he said ''they're not prequels''.

''He Said, She Said'' was much more a piece of visual poetry than a TV episode. You couldn't really do that sort of thing in a normal TV episode. That's why this online expansion is so great -- you can be far more experimental than when you're restricted to a 45 minute adventure story. <p>

1. I've seen people argueing about this on gallifrey base and you're wrong. The [very few] people who had an issue with it had an issue because ''playing it at the cinema makes it less ~special~ waaahh''

2. I don't think you understand how the license fee actually works. Neither to the people complaining about the license fee, if that is in fact the majority of complaints.

''Deus Ex Machina: plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly resolved by the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability or object''. By virtue of the fact that the sonic screwdriver is _already long established in the show_, it cannot be a deus ex machina.

''Maybe this is what Moffat has got planned and he’s subtly trying to prepare us?'' No. Goodness, people have really misunderstood what he was asking. He wasn't suggesting that the Doctor was human or related to humans at all. He was asking in which episode the Doctor was first defined as an alien, because the original production crew were wishy-washy on the Doctor's backstory.

 Argh, argh.

What will happen is that ''the search for Gallifrey'' will play out in the background of the regular adventures. That is exactly what it was designed for, and what Moffat said will happen.

One, that's not his only quote on the subject, but I don't want to go googling for the specific one I'm referring to in case I run into screeching anti-Moffat blogs;

Two, that's still a far cry from ''He will absolutely find Gallifrey in the near future. This is a confirmed FACT.''

''Regardless of if you agree or disagree with the debate, Gallifrey at some point in the not too distant future will return. For the first time since the show’s revival it’s no longer a likely possibility – but a confirmed certainty.'' No, it is not. Sorry, but Moffat said himself that the Doctor was unlikely to ever actually find the planet. Having the POSSIBILITY of finding it is a motivation, it gives him a reason to do what he does.
