  • Army of Ghosts (10th Doctor)
  • Bad Wolf (9th Doctor)
  • The Chase (1st Doctor)
  • Dalek (9th Doctor)
  • The Dalek Invasion of Earth (1st Doctor)
  • Daleks in Manhattan (10th Doctor)
  • The Daleks' Master Plan (1st Doctor)
  • The Daleks (1st Doctor)
  • Day of the Daleks (3rd Doctor)
  • Death to the Daleks (3rd Doctor)
  • Destiny of the Daleks (4th Doctor)
  • Doomsday (10th Doctor)
  • The Evil of the Daleks (2nd Doctor)
  • Evolution of the Daleks (10th Doctor)
  • Frontier in Space (3rd Doctor)
  • Genesis of the Daleks (4th Doctor)
  • Journey's End (10th Doctor)
  • Mission to the Unknown (kind of first, maybe, sort of)
  • The Parting of the Ways (9th Doctor)
  • Planet of the Daleks (3rd Doctor)
  • The Power of the Daleks (2nd Doctor)
  • Remembrance of the Daleks (7th Doctor)
  • Resurrection of the Daleks (5th Doctor)
  • Revelation of the Daleks (6th Doctor)
  • The Stolen Earth (10th Doctor)

    So we have: 4 for the 1st Doctor (3 years), 2 for the 2nd (3 years), 4 for the 3rd (4 years), 2 for 4th (7 years), 1 for the 5th (3 years), 1 for the 6th (2 years), 1 for the 7th (2 years), 0 for the 8th (big surprise he doesn't count), 3 for the 9th (1 year), 6 for the 10th (3 years), and 1 thats an odd ball.

    So yeah, thats way way too many Daleks. In 4 years we've had twice what the 3rd doctor had in 4 years and almost 5 times as many as the 4th doctor had in 7 years.

    I hope I never see another Dalek again in my life, they are worse than Skrulls.

Because it had my favorite Sarah Jane Smith in it I decided to watch the last two Dr Who episodes. Okay we've watched the first one, and due to its ending we'll probably watch the second.

But its fan fiction at best, and not even very good fan fiction.

I can do better. Maybe.

At least I wouldn't have such a stupid Davros (doesn't he know that if he can divide cells enough to make millions of Daleks than he doesn't need more than a few stem cells tops? Stupid super genius).

Oh, and Daleks are way too overdone.

I'm a huge fan of Dr Who, but not a big fan of Russell Davies I've decided. Quite frankly, he's a hack. Looking back on the past 3 years the episodes I've liked are: "The Empty Child", "The Doctor Dances", "The Girl in the Fireplace", "The Shakespeare Code" and "Blink". Which tells me that the writers who work for me are Steven Moffat and maybe Gareth Roberts, who has only done one episode but it was about Shakespeare in a wild and exuberant way so he may be good or he might just have struck a cord.

Note that none of these are penned by Russell Davies. In fact the episodes that I mostly hated ("Bad Wolf", "The Parting of the Ways", "Army of Ghosts", "Doomsday", "New Earth" and all that Master stuff) were written by him. I can also fairly say that I'd avoid Helen Raynor and that while Paul Cornell might be able to write good SF tv, I don't like his doctor.

Looking at series 4 I see that Gareth Roberts is doing the Agatha Christie episode, which makes me happy. Also that Steven Moffat is down for two episodes that are "TBA". I may, whim takes me, see the Pompeii episode, if it gets good buzz.

In other Dr Who discussion, this infograph, Doctor Who: Revolutionary Or Tool Of The Man? is pretty cool. Though for ease of use I wish it had shown the doctor's on it. Its interesting to me that the 4th Doctor, who I think of as most anti-establishment, is mostly in the conservative era (I'm not surprised by the 3rd, his stories mostly happen in the present).

Sarah Jane Adventures is the best Doctor who on Television. Cool and no melodrama (well not that much). Sarah Jane is amazing, and the kids aren't so bad either.

I'm in love, which is a good thing because both Torchwood and most of season 3 left bad tastes in my mouth.

[ profile] jeffwik leant me The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, an eighth Doctor Who novel. But I don't really want to talk about that.

Doctor Who is one of those pivotal shows or me, it is probably the first thing I was ever a fan of, and as a franchise and mythos it still holds a great deal of love from me. Not enough that I've seen any of the 9th doctor episodes (I should, folks seem enthusiastic about them). So, like anything else that interests me sooner or later my thoughts turn to gaming.

One could argue that I'm in a Dr Who inspired game already, but because [ profile] worldofire started as something different it just doesn't seem very Who-vian to me. Part of that may be my ignorance of the 8th Doctor novels which seems to be a major inspiration for Faction Paradox material that is inspiring Jeff.

So this is how I'd do Dr Who. Read more... )
