Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

No It's what you are, you outed yourself as one. Oh and I've complained to the mods. I'm sure the mods have read it. It was a discussion between shuzbot and me. I'm sure you'll be alarmed to discover that I also don't believe that the Bible is real history. And Merlin the Magician never actually ex...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

Oh and I ain't taking any lectures from a f*****g holocaust denier. Is that supposed to upset me? Sadly, for you, I learned long ago that people trying to bully you by calling you names are only showing their own insecurities and flaws. Any other names you want to sling at me? Well keep going, chie...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

And the moment that the Doctor lands in a Tudor England where Black people are treated like everyone else(rather than the extreme racism that there actually was), there's an immediate disconnect, and it's going to be a less impressive story. Ah of course in the Shakespeare Code, black people should...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

The part of North Africa the article highlights is Mauritania which does have population of black people, you also seem to ignore natiosn like Sudan and Ethiopia both of which are part of North Africa. When did I suggest tracking down every copy of anything and burning it? Who is straw-manning now?...

Re: Rate "The Pilot"

Isn't it the case though that most of Moffat's "first episode of a series" have been pretty strong in general? The problem is sustaining it for another 11 or 12 episodes.

Re: Favourite Story of Series 5

The Eleventh Hour. A good introduction for the Eleventh Doctor and Amy. Actually, Moffat's first year is pretty good all around. I wonder whether it was the negative media reaction that made him change direction? It would have been nice if the Moffat era as a whole was more like Series 5, and less '...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

In general, I agree with KK 100%. If there were in fact black people in Roman Britain then s/he's possibly got that particular point wrong, but the general principle is correct. And in fact the new Dr Who has strayed very far into breaking its own rules and hence making it harder to take it serious...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

I've personally never liked the "but it's all fiction" attitude. Using that logic, could dragons have appeared in The Office? Would it make a difference if zombies had checked into Fawlty Towers? Could a Jonathan Creek solution be given as "It was a witch casting her spells"? Only if you ignore gen...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

Black people have been living in Britain since at least Roman times. We know of one individual African legionary, 'famous among buffoons and always a great joker', who went down in history for making fun of the Emperor Septimius Severus outside Carlisle around the year 210 AD. Significantly, the Em...

Re: Battlestar Galactica

I enjoyed the original when I was younger. It's a shame that it ended when it did, and that "1980" rubbish should all be wiped. The "reimagined" show was hideous. Male characters like Starbuck and Boomer turned into women. All the remaining male characters being either stupid, drunk, ignorant etc. O...

Re: Series 10 Ratings thread

One thing that got the GB rabble on my case was the fact that I stated outright that I think that ratings are a joke. Out of a population of 64 million+(legally documented), they take...what a few thousand people, and then scale that up, and from that it is 'known' what the population of 64 million+...

Re: Moffat reveals how he will destroy DOCTOR WHO

It really comes down to whether you're going for strict historical accuracy, or the best actor for the role. Of course, some people would say that being historically accurate is part of who's best for the role in the first place. Black people didn't really come into Britain before the Tudor era, and...

Re: What's the last film you watched?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It was OK, seemed a bit of an excuse to have lots of cute CGI creatures running around the screen. I've only seen a few clips, but, Eddie Redmayne, and the way he waves the magic wand around, struck me as very similar to a certain 11th incarnation of a certa...

Re: Rate "The Pilot"

One thing 'wrong' with the Movellans though - wasn't their war a long time before the Time War Dalek era? The Daleks should have been older grey and tatty. Mind you, I'm deep in the mire of the John Peel novel which put the whole Dalek-Movellan war as a ruse to fool Davros.. Most fans have gleefull...

One interesting thing is that, apart from the beginning with discovering the TARDIS, most of the "What does that mean, Doctor?" type questions were asked by Narsole, not Bill.

Re: John Simm back as the Master...[Possibly Spoilery]

One popular idea that's been floating around is that Missy isn't really the Master. And that Chibnall could bring back Simm, and explain how this third-rate Mary Poppins ended up believing that she was the Master. So Moffat is probably bringing back Simm just to hammer us over the head with "Yes, Mi...

Re: Moffat on using CGI to bring back dead Doctor Who actors

I was just watching my son play the latest episode of "Tomb Raider" using the high end graphics card he just bought, and although the character movement isn't so convincing - you wouldn't think it was a video, for sure - it's still on the right side of uncanny valley. The faces are very good indeed...
