this show is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever had the chance to listen to!
okey, so I have a job in which I can, while working, listen to whatever I want from my phone. I’m currently working my way through the seven Chronicles of Narnia books, but since I have basically eight hours a day to listen, it’s going very quickly.
I have other audiobooks I want to listen to, but I would want to mix this up with something else. So do anyone have any tip of really good radio series or podcast I could listen to as well? Bonus points ot they are either very funny or have a very intresting storyline/characters to follow.
Welcome to Night Vale and Cabin Pressure is out, since I am listening to Night Vale already and I relisten to Cabin Pressure all the time anyway so I want something new…
I really, genuinely feel awful for all of the old Doctors now.
And the way Moffat explained it was soooo condescending:
“They’re all brilliant, they’re all terrific, but time has passed. I think it would be beyond the dignity of all those very fine actors to want to force themselves back into a costume from 20 or 30 years ago.” (SFX Magazine)
I saw Peter Davison speak yesterday at Hal Con, and his take on the issue was much the same. He said that he feels the 50th is celebrating the 50th Anniversary itself rather than 50 years of the program. He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole. Peter Davison said that he felt let down to be part of a group excluded from the anniversary despite his role in its history, which is really very sad.

I know I’ve reblogged this before, but the added Davidson quote just makes me terribly sad. I got into who properly in the Eccleston years, but I’ve always been aware of it. It’s a huge part of the TV culture of the UK and the wider sci fi community. People who have no interest in the show now remember hiding behind the sofa when they saw the Daleks. And some people have been watching the show since the beginning and still love it now. The fiftieth should not be about one man and his ego. It should be about the fans, all the doctors, all the companions and all the stories that have been loved and lived. And we’re not going to get that.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - of all the awful things Moffat has done, this is the worst by far.
Whole generations of nerd kids in the US were raised on Doctor Who on PBS too. Four is the most beloved, I think, but Five is close. (And I met Peter Davison at a con last year and he was such a sweet, lovely man)
How often does ANY TV show endure long enough to do a 50th anniversary special? It absolutely should include all the living past Doctors and anyone else who wants to show up. It could and should be a multigenerational experience. There are people who loved the show as kids whose grandchildren are fans now.
AND THEN WE FOUND OUT ABOUT “THE FIVE(ISH) DOCTORS” AND THEN WE REMEMBER RULE NUMBER ONE: THE DOCTOR LIES. ALL OF THEM. ALWAYS. AND THEY ARE DOING IT DAMN WELL
I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone's. It's taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I'm going, where I've always been going. Home, the long way round.
Time to count, children!
