Quote from: A Hat Like That on May 03, 2021, 10:38:41 PMFirst, he (correctly?) works on the premise that the questions will always be more interesting than the answers.
Quote from: Zetetic on May 04, 2021, 08:28:53 PMI think the issue that I have with Moffat's tenure after a while is that the resolutions, more and more, seem to have almost no emotional implications. My memory is of increasingly struggling to find something to wonder "what would that feel like to go through?" about

Quote from: mjwilson on May 04, 2021, 09:00:32 PMThe worst demonstration of that is Amy and Rory finding that the baby they had is actually River, and then that being basically ignored by the end of the episode. Not saying that the show had to turn into "Amy and Rory are sad now", but it needed a bit more attention.
Quote from: Ambient Sheep on May 07, 2021, 12:03:56 PMFor anyone who's missed it, the Noel Clarke thread now has this:Includes specific accusations from junior members of the crew, with comment from RTD, Julie Gardner, Barrowman, and increasingly-grimly-hilarious shit from Clarke's lawyers.I'll be writing about it over there, rather than here, but just wanted to give a heads-up for those who don't visit General Bullshit.
Quote from: frajer on May 07, 2021, 12:44:16 PMCompletely agree, I hated that whole development. Still feel that it was far too big and awful an incident for the show, which painted them into a corner in terms of the emotional arc. Naturally you couldn't show the Ponds going insane with grief, but the only other option is to have them come across as unrelatably aloof about the whole thing. Amy and Rory's actual baby being stolen from them is just so bleak and I don't think "don't worry, she grows up fine(ish) and is River" is the cure-all the show seems to think it is.
QuoteOn one occasion, Jenna said that she witnessed Barrowman "slapping" his penis on the windscreen of one of the driver's cars, "thinking it was really funny".
Quote from: Replies From View on May 07, 2021, 01:36:36 PMI know that doing it off-screen isn't always ideal, but in this instance one could argue that the mid-series gap works as an emotional cushion for the Ponds to come to terms with it all, and for the viewers to not require an emotional resolution because so much time has passed. What we didn't see on-screen was "never mind all this guff; let's just get on with more adventures!" but people tend to see it that way because all these emotional arcs were not attended to in any episodes we saw.My view is that something tricky like that is better left off-screen than done badly on-screen. I know that this arguably lets Moffat off some hooks a little too easily, but think of the way it was handled by Moffat (the audience can imagine it, if they want, in the mid-series gap) and the way Chibnall would have done it.

Quote from: Zetetic on May 04, 2021, 08:28:53 PMOr anything in The Time of the Doctor, now I think about it? It's most significant emotional implication is that the show isn't going to end that week, I guess.

Quote from: Zetetic on May 09, 2021, 01:52:28 PMThere is no reason to give a shit about "Christmas" and "Trenzalore". And what's the threat? That they all die? Sad if we imagine anyone notices, I suppose.
Quote from: Zetetic on May 09, 2021, 02:13:38 PMIf you wept with joy at the end of The Time of the Doctor, it's because you're party to the gross abstract sentimentality of dictators disconnected from the experiences of actual humans.Not my words, but Moffat describing who he writes for, in my imagination.
Quote from: GoblinAhFuckScary on May 10, 2021, 02:22:59 PMhaven't watched who for years because i felt i outgrew it, capaldi being a bit of a disappointing dad rocker type, but started to watch series 10 and i'm really enjoying it???bill, nardole, and the doctor together work SO WELL together. capaldi's character's much more realised. it feels so much more natural now with clara gone i'm having a blast four episodes in
QuotePertwee now has to contend with the scene stealing antics of Troughton and the effortless command of Hartnell! It is hilarious when you learn about the behind the scenes clash of personalities, especially the idea of Troughton improvising his script as he goes along and throwing Pertwee off his game who has learnt his to the letter!
Quote from: Jack Shaftoe on May 10, 2021, 04:07:13 PMApparently (according to a friend on the set), Capaldi found it very difficult to work with Lucas, not on a personal level as such, but because he kept improvving/changing his lines, which threw Capaldi off his rhythm.
