This article is going to make many people angry. I dont care because it needs to be said. Doctor Who has become fan wank. I am not slamming the performance of Matt Smith who I think is brilliant as the Doctor. I am slamming this current seasons writing staff and their inability to craft a believable Doctor Who story.

What would a “believable Doctor Who story” look like I wonder.
I thought the headline was the subject: “Doctor who has become fan wank,” like “Doctor who owns eighteen snakes”. What was the predicate?
“Doctor who has become fan wank searches internet for electrician.”
“Doctor who has become fan wank finds relief with acupuncture practicioner.”
“Doctor who has become fan wank moves to Greenland, takes up dogsledding.”
What is a “Fan Wank?”
What is a “Fan Wank?”
LOL some guy working at a computer day in and day out.
I’m OK with the current season but I hate to see the Ponds leave but that’s part of the show.
I had to look it up. :)
It used to be a really cool show. Till it turned into a homosnog fest!
just watched the latest episode, The Angels Take Manhattan (S07E05). it’s a solid episode with lots of twists and turns.
i won’t say anything regarding the content or storyline, but will say it’s a very good episode and definitely worth viewing
Watching Doc Who in America now. The astronaut shoots the Doctor. I haven’t watched for a while so that was a spoil;er for me. Wish I hadn’t seen that!
That said, the loss of Amy is KILLING ME!
Matt Smith makes a great Doctor Who. Wish he would stay around longer. Yes, Tom Baker and some of the others were fantastic but I really liked Matt Smith.
Oh...and Amy Pond...Did I mention how much I liked Amy Pond as the companion?
Dr Who is not a human ~ no one knows how he deals with things ~
Goes way back but i still prefer the chamois skin clad woman!
Okay, my hubby and I are laughing out loud at your comment. Bravo.
It would look like about 80% of Tennant's work.
Or about 60% of Eccleston's. To be fair to Eccleston, he only had the first seasaon of the relaunch, and they limited the scope of the series while building a new fan base. His doctor stayed on Earth (or in Earth orbit) and only traveled to the past a couple times.
The first episode with Amy as a little girl was awesome. The food scene was great.
I was watching some Western episode where he is given a horse and told his name is Joshua from the Bible. He corrects the giver, that no, his real name is [insert some girl’s name] with gender identity issues. Little hostile there, lost my interest with that.
I wish I could find a picture on the net of her in that...ummm what was it ...meter maid/policewoman/whatever outfit? SHE WAS, and still is, HOT!
I guess a leggy Karen Gillan made a more lasting impression in that epi.
Leela, the warfrior.
I liked the Angels In Manhattan but maybe I blinked and missed something regarding the dispostion of the final angel that zapped the Ponds.
Leela, the warrior.
River told her Mother,Amy, to never let the Dr see her grow old. The end was a perfect resolution. I could have used a wee bit more romance between River and the Dr in the final Tardis scene. Love the chemistry between them.
and fish fingers!
Leela, perhaps my all time favorite companion of the old and new series.
I guess I've watched too many cooking shows combining odd combinations and to differentiate between a dessert custard and a custard (batter) coating, including battering a battered raw frozen fish chunk.
Watching the youtube clip, it did raise awareness of how battered the lowly fish stick has been recently: "South Park", "Mostly Martha", etc.
The Angels are back!! Sweet!! I just finished season 6 so I need to now catch up on season 7.
John Nathan Turner, a producer of the program who really overstayed his welcome, ruined the original series and began introducing homosexual overtones into the program. Turner’s tenure began with Tom Baker’s final season (possibly forcing the highly successful Baker out of the series according to some) and continued through the cancellation of the series with Sylvester McCoy. The fiasco involving Colin Baker’s rocky two years on the show need not be recounted here.
I big source of disappointment for me has been that the series has been loaded down with too much gay agitation propaganda, even when such preaching has nothing to do with advancing the stories.
Are you talking about the 2005-present series? I haven’t noticed it, other than when they had that idiot Captain from Torchwood on there. I watched about 20 minutes of Torchwood and flipped it off quick.
Yes, for heaven’s sakes, the Doctor who time travels in an English phone booth cannot afford to be placed into unbelievable situations.
“I had to look it up. :)”
I won’t bother!!!
anything sounding that stupid ian’t worth reading!!!
Its a great show. This season wasn’t the best but it doesn’t matter. Its the Doctor. Matt is great as the Dr. but so far he doesn’t hold a candle to Tenant’s incarnation.
“Yes, for heavens sakes, the Doctor who time travels in an English phone booth that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside cannot afford to be placed into unbelievable situations.”
I don't want to look at fags. I don't want to hear about them. I don't care to even know they exist. They disgust me.
According to Darwinian evolution they should have died out long ago. They don't reproduce, so they have to recruit. I don't care to experience their recruitment processes!
I would say some episodes were about as appealing as British warm beer lately.
The last one about the angels in Manhattan was pretty good though and the farewell of Rory and Amy was a bit sad but done well, River is hot hot hot and compliments the doctor, but what about when the Doctor regenerates? same chemistry?
Or will River herself het her regeneration back?
If anything I would like to see the Doctor going back in time to assist older episodes of himself like from the earliest Dr. Who series, if they could get the CGI right it would be awesome.
It's one reason Jonathan David Baird has trouble reselling his comic books.
"The fiasco involving Colin Baker" had to do with the then BBC Head of Drama, Michael Grade, who not only admitted he didn't like Doctor Who, but killed other sci-fi shows like The Tripods and reruns of the original Star Trek that didn't cost the Beeb a penny to produce!
Further, after an 18-month hiatus, and "Trial of a Time Lord," it was decided by Grade and another working for Grade who had an equal distaste for the show that Colin would be removed from the show because three years was enough as far as they were concerned, even if the show wasn't actually on the telly.
For the final two seasons, JN-T was only a reluctant producer as he actually wanted to move on but he wasn't allowed to. Having moved the show from its traditional time slot of Saturday afternoons to compete with long-running programs like Coronation Street is what ultimately killed the show. Don't place blame at the feet of JN-T for things beyond his control. He did the best he could with what he had.
Technically it is a police box, and not a phone booth.
I thought that his entire tenure on the program was fairly awful. Too many derivative programs, too many poor casting decisions (some of the most unpopular companions in the original run of the series dated from the JNT regime). Don’t get started on his fights with Eric Saward and others on the series.
