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.

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*

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.
