DW: Wilf Skywalker


I know I can't be alone...

...so if the mods would please allow this indulgence, I'd like to invite you to a new emailing list I created:


It's for fans of classic and RTD Doctor Who eras. I started it because I was already annoyed that we had to deal with Moffat, now we have confirmation that they're going to have Twilight-influenced Doctor Who. I wanted to create a nice, safe space where people are allowed to be fans of the previous Doctor Whos and not necessarily of the upcoming travesty season in store.

Dr Who (9) - WTF


SERIOUSLY, MOFFAT?!?! Are you for real!??!?!

I don't know what this means, but it scares the hell out of me. Oh, Moffat, you evil bastard! (And not in the good-RTD-way!) I got this from beauty_within16's journal, who got the information from morrighangw's post (which I can't read as it's flocked) which originally came from cookie2697 (See comment below).
There be filming spoilers here.Collapse )

Another Series One?

I don't know how legitimate this is or not, but thebadwolf91 read in her DW magazine that series five will not be series five, but will be series one. Which makes NO FLIPPING SENSE! Rebooting and starting at series one made sense for the relaunch in 2004, but now? I can't think of any reason for it other than Moffat's colossal ego. *sigh*

Question: Who do you think will be the next companion?

So, the next Doctor has been sorted out. We know who he is. The question that appears to be on everyone's lips right now is about the next companion.

some options presented by the media, and a pollCollapse )

Livejournal didn't like how much I wrote in reply to this post

Why Moffat isn't a fanboy and why he's so reveredCollapse )

On fanboys, and why Steven Moffat isn't one (other than of himself).

As part of their '45 years of Doctor Who celebration in this month's issue, SFX has interviewed several Who fanboys - among them Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat, and Paul Cornell. RTD and SM were asked a set of mostly the same questions, whereas the others each wrote up short essays about what Doctor Who means to them. Rarely has the difference between RTD and SM (and others) been so striking as when directly comparing their answers to the same questions. It's kind of curious that SFX calls him a fanboy, because if the interview with him makes anything clear, it's that he's a fanboy of and cares only about himself rather than the show. Where there is true emotion in RTD's interview, there's only self-referentiality and empty 'funny' answers in Moffat's that fall flat and feel hollow.

See for yourselves.Collapse )

the tenth doctor


(no subject)

arabian, I saw the post in your journal about the "Why Steven Moffat Isn't All That" article first, and when I read the comments, there were things I wanted to say, but you and butterfly said them very well. Still, I'd like to say them, and since they are concerns about Who under Moffat, I figured I'd just post them here.

Why I don't think it's all right to have Moffat's views in televisionCollapse )

I probably need a soapbox icon, after that. XD

Why Steven Moffat Isn't All That

I put in "empty writer steven moffat" into my google search on a whim to see if this comm would pop up and saw this:

Why Steven Moffat Isn't All That.Collapse )

Basically, the writer details so many of the misogynistic issues that those of who are NOT Moffat-fans have. Detailed and broken-down with logic and not presented under a haze of Doctor/Rose 4-eva twuwub, so there's some legitimate weight behind the words! Awesome.

Welcome Post

This is a meta community intended for speculation and discussion about the upcoming fifth series (and possibly beyond) of the BBC's Doctor Who, under the new executive producer, Steven Moffat. This is NOT an anti-Moffat community; it is not a place to insult Moffat, but instead to discuss and critique his former work, as well as his perspectives as applied to that work. Neither is this community designed to cheerlead Moffat but instead discuss how his vision will affect the upcoming series.

Admittedly, the maintainers are not admirers of Moffat's style and purported intentions towards Who under his direction. With that said, we are aware that not everyone who watches this show (or will join this community) feels the same way. Therefore, posts/entries that exist merely to tear down Moffat are not allowed. We may not agree with the man's style or possible direction for Who, but this community was created in curiosity and because of an established love for the show that's existed thus far and not as an arena for Moffat-bashing. The idea behind The Empty Writer is that many of us who love the show (in either Classic form, the New Who under Russell T Davies, or both) have concerns about new New Who. Whether you intend to watch series five or not, you're welcome here to discuss the future of Doctor Who.
