Quote from: BritishHobo on May 24, 2022, 10:39:52 AMI'm excited for this. I said this in the other thread but I've never watched series 1-3 in order, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it flows.
Quote from: BritishHobo on May 24, 2022, 12:21:05 PMYeah, I always found it interesting that he felt he had to over-emphasise it so much with Donna. Especially after reading The Writer's Tale and realising that his original idea for his series 4 companion Penny was... an ordinary woman from contemporary Britain who falls in love with the Doctor - and the Doctor reciprocates! Glad he didn't do that.

Quote from: Thomas on May 24, 2022, 01:21:40 PMI recall in The Writer's Tale that RTD (agreeably) characterises Moffat as quite a sexually motivated writer. Everyone's flirting and snogging and making allusions to erections and Watson is texting other women and Clara is there. But RTD himself isn't dissimilar - perhaps he just embraces an extra, dignifying layer of 'romance'.1 I also remember Russell talking about how he always fantasised about being the companion rather than the Doctor - we might read into Rose getting to take home a copy at the end of her journey as a bit of wish fulfilment. 2. that said, the most earnest and touching romantic moment in all of New Who must surely be the night on Darillium at the end of Husbands. That or the paving slab.
Quote from: BritishHobo on May 24, 2022, 10:39:52 AMMy biggest memory and the thing I'm going to be keeping in mind is I always felt there was a real nasty streak in his Who
QuoteEccleston explained the circumstances surrounding his exit, saying: "I agreed with Russell that I would go, quietly and respectfully, and I would look after the show publicity-wise, in terms of publicising it."And then, without saying anything to me, they announced that I was leaving. They didn't tell me they were going to do that. I was walking down the street and suddenly I got quite a lot of aggression. And more importantly... they created a quote, and they attributed it to me, which said I was tired."Now the thing is about that, 'Oh I found it too tiring', I didn't find it too tiring. I found it too tiring working with Russell, and Phil and Julia. I didn't find it physically too tiring."When they said that, any other producer reading that would go 'Oh, we're not going to employ Christopher Eccleston because he gets tired'. So it was a lie, and it was in quotation marks, and I'm from Salford, you don't do that to me."
Quote from: Midas on May 24, 2022, 10:31:13 PMOn this point, recently I reinterpreted a particularly mean-spirited moment in the revived series - the "Don't you think she looks tired" scene in The Christmas Invasion - when the Doctor triumphantly gloats to Harriet Jones about how he "could bring down her government in just six words".
Quote from: Malcy on May 25, 2022, 10:28:01 PMI've been on a Pertwee rewatch for about a year with 90% of it consisting with a weeks binge. I'm close and should just finish but also have the Evil Of The Daleks animation since day of release and my brain doesn't allow one thing to be started without another. Off work next few days so will do my best.
Quote from: Malcy on May 25, 2022, 10:28:01 PMAm I right in thinking it has stated as of yesterday? I loved the Eccleston era and have a lot to say that I've probably said before. Still would love to do it though.
Quote from: JamesTC on May 25, 2022, 10:30:04 PMI might rewatch the episodes that aren't shit.You're in for a treat when you get round to Evil. In my opinion, the second best animation behind The Moonbase.
