No spoilers in the rant (link below). In fact, it has anti-spoilers as the author appears to not have done his homework. Here is the perspicacious comment, posted By jimbo600 1 September 24, 2009 08:53:47 AM:
Surely the most cretinous, point-missing vision of the lovely, life-affirming Doctor Who ever committed to pixels. Please let it be a joke.
Den of Geek published a rant by someone who’s not fond of New Who. As it went on (and on and on) it appeared that he’d never been much of a fan of Old Who, either – just someone who thinks that the BBC and everyone involved with Doctor Who for the last 40 years has got it wrong by making it be a kids show that adults can also enjoy, when they should have made it much more hardbitten if it was going to engage him, gadzooks. I half expected him to sign it as “Disgusted, of Tunbridge Wells”.
Still, the rant is entertaining in a car-crash kind of way. Sure, there’s flaws in Doctor Who. That doesn’t mean that most of us want it to change as drastically as this bloke envisages (and his fantasies with respect to preventing the birth of dictators via time travel are not only sexist in the extreme but also betray someone who simply has not read enough time travel paradox fics).
Anyway, after all that I was most relieved to waste some time over at the BBC’s Gallery of “Your Greatest Doctor Who Moments” as suggested by fans. Good stuff.
