    @pedant  It is a cold,grey day here. There is lots of snow and the temp. is 0C and I am  stuck inside feeling a little blue and not just from the cold. Then from across the ocean you have posted something that has cheered me up and put a smile on my face. Thank you as always for the link.

    Alas, in the clip they didn’t include the supercut that aired of every time she mentioned Doctor Who in her interview and how great she thinks Jodie Whittaker is. Which was a lot.

    Representation matters. Who knew?

    @pedant  Is it pathetic to be so excited for a trailer?  Probably, but I still am!

    Thanks and happy Doctor Who Day.

    Lol and hopefully they will give us the series start date too though given the BeeBs usual trailer policy  all it will say is coming soon

    It’s bowel streak, a vile misogynistic little shitweasel and noted Angry Virgin. and we are more than familiar with his vile spewings – and you would be too if you ever paid any attention to what people actually said, rather than just getting stampy-footed when people pointed out how gratuitously offensive you are being.

    Don’t post that shit here, especially behind a blind link.

    I’m offensive? That’s a laugh, re- read your post mate and think again.

    A simple  “it’s rubbish” would have sufficed.

    As usual I get accused of being snide.  I simply wanted  other members opinions.

    Nice Jodie Whittaker interview, hopefully not regional-locked. Spoiler-free, bar a few brief clips from the trailer.

    I have been a doctor who fan for more years than I like to admit.. and some of the doctors took a little getting used to.. but this new one .. well she is the worst I have seen.. i actually turned it off the other night..i really hope they regenerate her .. and soon.. other wise.

    I will be missing one of my all time favorite shows….

    It seems that you and I agree, as do many, many people who have asked me what I thought- not knowing that I don’t watch anymore. On of my friends called it a ‘parody’ and a very bad one at that.

    Still, everyone is entitled to their opinion and all on this forum seem to like it.

    Just a heads up for anyone that’s interested: Big Finish is doing a Doctor Who sale over the next few months. Currently various audios featuring the First Doctor are on sale; next week it will be the Second Doctor, and so on, up to the Twelfth Doctor. You can see the offers by entering the code HISTORY on this page: https://www.bigfinish.com/offers/v/dwseries12

    This isn’t really news but I wasn’t sure where else to put this.

    I’m rewatching all of post-gap Who with my 11 year old son. Although I’ve probably seen every episode at least twice already, this will be the first time I’ve gone through the lot in order since it first came out. My boy has seen quite a few episodes as well a few years back but I suspect he was too young to really follow it.

    I wanted to share our responses as we go through it all. The simplest way would be to post comments on each of the individual episode threads but I thought it might be nice to put it all in one place. Would there be a way to have a thread or blog for that purpose on this forum, or is that not really within the scope or ethos here?

    Hi @davros

    This is probably a question for our resident Time Lords, @craig, @jimthefish, @phaseshift, who manage the site. In the interim, there is always the “On the Sofa” thread, which is open to all Who-related discussion.

    Mudlark @mudlark

    @davros

    Since you will be covering all the post-gap Doctors but understandably don’t want to keep it as a continuous thread, Faces of the Doctor might be the most appropriate forum.

    I honestly didn’t know where to put this, so it might as well be here. A short prologue to The Woman Who Fell to Earth, penned by Mr Chibnall…

    @jimthefish

    thanks for that, this is the first i’ve seen it. the flapping of the arms was a nice touch. if only they’d put a bit of a regeneration glow in there, for the viewing audience, after she hit the floor. but maybe he hadn’t thought all this through when first writing the ep…

    but we all know, by now, chibbers is much more tell than show, anyway…

    There’s another new short story on the Doctor Who website, this time by Pete McTighe: https://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/doctorwho/entries/0f866ddb-21fd-47e0-80c2-0f7da6ac64a8

    @badwolfalice thank you for that link. It was lovely. Just lovely. Watched Eleventh Hour last night and made lots of notes. Was rather like being back at Uni in a Cinema Studies screening only I did not keep falling asleep.

    Cheers

    Wonderfully sweet clip. Thanks so much for posting.

    Here’s rather a spiffy new story from Mr Moffat. Not only is it rather nice that he seems to be absolutely capturing 13, it rather brilliantly encapsulates Who’s mission statement…

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @jimthefish

    That was very clever and…very Moffat.

    I do wonder, therefore, what Chibnall thinks about Moffat coming on board and writing such clever stories about the Doctor on Chibnall’s watch.

    There is a line in the story about running a flat management structure, and: “Obviously I have to be top”. Is that Moffat writing about the Doctor? Or…

    Craig @craig
    Emperor

    @jimthefish @blenkinsopthebrave I just saw a link to that on Twitter and came on here to post it.

    Great job by Moffat that, sort-of, connects to young Amelia Pond, in a way, or his other childrens’ stories such as young Danny and the young Doctor.

    I hope it means he might write an episode, especially if he’s bored at home like the rest of us, but I’d understand if he can’t.

    @craig and @blenkinsopthebrave

    I’d very much like to see Moffat do a story for 13. This is probably too short a sample to give a definitive sense but it seems to me that he can certainly write her character and that even now he still seems to have some interesting things to say about Who. I do wonder how much truth there is in the rumours that they don’t get on. Certainly Chibs’s era seems to have been antagonistic to Moff’s right from the get go.

    Maybe @blenkinsopthebrave is on to something and that this story is essentially SM clearing his throat meaningfully….

    But it has to be said, I did like this story a lot and I hope that even if he doesn’t write for the show again, I’d at least like to see another novelisation from Moff….

    Craig @craig
    Emperor

    @jimthefish @blenkinsopthebrave I think the problem is just not wanting to step on the current showrunner’s toes.

    I kinda think that’s why Russel T Davies didn’t write an episode for the Moffat era.

    Can you imagine if Moffat wrote an episode like “Blink” for the Chibnall era and everyone said “This is exactly what we’ve been waiting for – proper Doctor Who, not the rubbish we’ve had so far” (not that I think it’s rubbish – but some people do).

    For those who like (or want to try) Big Finish Audios, they’re offering free downloads of selected titles during the lockdown. Some will be available throughout, others will be time-limited. They’re also doing various special offers.

    First one up in the ‘time limited’ selection is The War Doctor – The Innocent with John Hurt. Available until tomorrow (April 12th) 23:59 UK time.

    This sounds like it will be huge – a new multi-format story to be released over the course of twelve weeks later this year: https://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/time-lord-victorious-a-new-multi-platform-adventure?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=time_lord_victorious&utm_content=news

    MissRori @missrori

    I’m wondering if there’s any news on the status of Series 13 at this point.  Series 12 had such a bummer ending and left the Doctor in a sad place for her character arc, and I doubt that “Revolution of the Daleks” is going to do all the heavy lifting needed to undo it (i.e., restore Gallifrey, etc.).  And I’m also seriously wondering if Chibnall and co. are going to rethink everything they planned for her arc given the current pandemic, which I would imagine will have to be acknowledged in-universe, and which makes her current Special One status rather awkward at a time when, even more than usual, we’re seeing Not Special People being kicked to the curb worldwide by people who think they’re Special Ones and mass deaths being shrugged off in favor of the economy.  Can anybody help me out here?

    **MAJOR DOCTOR WHO NEWSFLASH**

    Maze Theory are announcing a new Doctor Who project tomorrow afternoon. It’s on their Twitter. The site won’t let me post the link for some reason.

    So hope this is a standard videogame and not a VR one.

    #70646

    This site won’t let me post links for some reason, but if you go on Maze Theory’s site they confirmed their news. They’re releasing two new Doctor Who games, one for PS4, Xbox and Switch and the other for mobile devices!

    So exciting. Can’t wait to play the Switch one!

    Apparently, the festive special completed filming before the lockdown.

    @blenkinsopthebrave Thanks for posting that link. That was a lovely interview with Mandip Gill. Really glad that there will be a festive special though her description of Sacha Dhawan just reminded me of how much I wanted him to be the Doctor one day. I had been thinking for some time that he is perfect for the role, in a way that few actors are, so I was a little disappointed when he was cast as The Master.

    Cheers
