portscenter

portscenter:

Owing to a technical cock-up, there’s a bit of a change of plans. We’d hoped to have the new PortsCenter edited and uploading by now so we can get ready for Comic-Con, but the external hard drive we used for the PortsCenter data appears to have picked now, as we’re actively finishing up the edit, to shit its pants.

Needless to say, fuck.

We’re going to hope it’s a temporary issue and deal with it when we get back. So the new episode is postponed until next Wednesday. We’re truly sorry, and we’ll try to make it up to you by being extra awesome.

I’m trying not to shit my pants, and I’m hoping the hard drive isn’t badly damaged.

You can’t legitimately claim that Russell T Davies cares more about the canon that came before him than Steven Moffat does when the absolute first thing Russell T Davies actually did was kill off the Time Lords.

Remember the Time Lords? Hoity buggers in silly hats? Introduced in “The War Games”, way back in 1969? Put the Doctor on trail for an entire season in the 80s? Yeah, Russell T Davies killed the lot of ‘em. That whole “Last of the Time Lords” thing isn’t 50 years old, y’know.

Moffat didn’t do anything that literally every showrunner before him had done. What’s more, he actively worked to preserve canon by making sure the twelve-regeneration limit was adhered to, even after spending the last four years telling us it wasn’t important and he doesn’t understand why people get hung up on it.

You also can’t say RTD isn’t self-congratulatory. Have you read any of his interviews? Have you read “The Writer’s Tale”? Did you ever actually watch Doctor Who Confidential?

Good grief.

Do you see my problem

That you don’t actually like Doctor Who?

That you only like RTD-era Who and are being unnecessarily passive-aggressive toward the Moffat era in order to make your opinion seem relevant? 

You are not understanding. Let me break it down for you:

"Doesn’t pass the Bechdel test". Fuck’s sake.

Pretty sure Russell does most if not all of the things listed alongside Moffat’s picture, as it goes. But yeah, whatever, the creator of the married lesbian interspecies couple and co-creator of Captain Jack Harkness is definitely “queerphobic”.

"Keeps to the canon storyline and rules". That manages to be pathetic and inaccurate.

Those infographics are giving me some spectacular second-hand embarrassment right now.
