NOTE: Spoiler Free Zone for later episodes of the Doctor Who 2008 Season – Australia has only just seen the Sontaran Double Episodes 4.04 The Sontaran Stratagem and 4.05 The Poison Sky. Everything prior to that is fair game. Torchwood Season 2 is entirely off limits for spoilers here too, please
(We can always have another fans attack edition later in the year) – we do have a thoroughly spoiled Season 4 Finale thread still open though – feel free.
So, it keeps on happening (the image below recurs in various adaptations all over the ihasatardis LJ community):
What’s been your most jarring WTF moments? Conversely, what’s only crept up on you later, upon reflection or reading someone else’s take? On the gripping hand, what fan-attacks have struck you as totally unwarranted?
This is a very minor one, but in The Poison Sky, I couldn’t help wondering what all the people on Earth were breathing when the atmosphere was ignited to get rid of the toxic Sontaran gases. Anyone got a good old sci-fi-pseudoscience explanation for that?
Anyway, it inspired me to what I am sure will only be my first Cluedo crossover macro in a long line:
Who is currently demanding an explanation for this bullshit?
Or, proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,
Who do you think it should be? Suggestions for further examples that would fit the theme will be gratefully considered.
Also, a shout-out to Catriona who is live-blogging Doctor Who as each episode is shown here in Oz.
