An incredibly small internet celebrity who really likes Doctor Who. As featured on Doctor Who News!
Sorry for the ads guys! I have serious medical problems and showing these helps me pay for them.. Take a look at them if you want to support me and find them interesting. If you really hate them, feel free to use adblock, but it'll make me sad =(.
Do you like what you see? Donate to help me cover my medical expenses! There's a chance I won't survive without my medication and visits to the doctor and it's all stupidly expensive (American medical insurance covers almost none of it) - it currently eats about half my salary! If you donate today, you can help with that!
Big spenders get preferential treatment in requesting reviews or historical write-ups!
Jesus christ. How the hell did they get away with that?
I just… I feel catatonic. I feel like I need to lie here and simply absorb what just happened on my screen. And then cry. A lot. Because… Okay, spoilers below… Since I know I’ve inspired several of my followers to watch it…
Red Dwarf. You’ll need a laugh after Blake
You’re not fucking kidding.
"Did YOU… betray ME?!"
A-Avon… B-b-but… No…
I… I may have lost it at that line… Paul Darrow’s best performance and the ultimate conclusion to the Blake/Avon friendship. I just… Those couple seconds of tv will stay with me the rest of my life.
AND THEN THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER FOREVER THE END.
A-Avon no… B-but Vila…
I can’t BELIEVE that happened. My mind is blown.
Next episode now. I’m ending Blake’s 7 tonight. Nuts to sleep.
I’ve gotten literal death threats from Tenvians. And at least two rape threats.
New Who generates the nastiest, most absolutely awful fans.
K New Who Only fans really need to get rid of the term “elitist.” 99% of the Classic Who fans are not elitists. We’re not going to sit here and scold you, unprovoked, for not watching or being uninterested in 82% of the history of the show (plus more cause Big Finish is still running). What will make us laugh at you is when you make yourself or your fandom look like a bunch of fools or whiny babies (see any overly obsessed Tennant fan who says “why doesnt the Doctor regenerate back into Ten??”).
When you say “I love everything Doctor Who!!1!!!1”, we assume you’ve seen Classic Who and will respond by praising the Nimon. When you respond, confused and maybe irritated, with “It’s hard too find,” we hear “I don’t love the entirety of Doctor Who enough to do 2 minute google search” or “We didn’t take 1 minute to ask a Classic Who fan on Tumblr where I could watch Classic Who.”
If you don’t want to watch Classic Who, that’s alright (I will have very little to talk to you about though). Just don’t claim you love everything Doctor Who related, simply because you don’t.
We’re not elitists, we’re just sad nerds that rarely find anyone in the real world who they can talk to about what they love. And for that, we get tired of constantly having to talk to people about just a fraction of the Doctor Who universe.
I for one really like NewWho. It’s just I do not prefer its overall community because most are oblivious to and disregard most of the show’s history, characters, etc. And personally I just like talking about aspects of Classic Who over NewWho.
Should I watch…
