The Gallifrey Chronicles - Lance Parkin (2005)
In the context of the novel, they’re just talking about Sherlock Holmes.
In the context of Eight’s tenure as the Doctor, Trix is just as easily discussing Eight’s mess of the movie, comic stories, audioplays, and novels, of which this is the final story. All of the above, produced over 17+ years by a range of authors and artists, often tend to conflict each other.
But that doesn’t matter, does it? Every word, every panel, every frame makes up the canon of Eight. It’s just a part of what makes Doctor Who Doctor Who. Even within the ‘Official Canon,’ if we were to limit it to only the aired television serials, the show is in frequent conflict with itself.
Richard E Grant’s Shalka Nine is just as real as Christpher Eccleston’s Nine. Paul McGann’s Eight’s final loss of innocence in the Time War is just as real as John Hurt’s Time War Doctor. What is the point of arguing absolutist canon when the whole crux of the character is the endless potential of time travel and pocket alternate universes? The only wrong answer is the invalidation of all these wonderful nuances that make up the whole of the Doctor Who franchise.
As Eight says:
It’s all real.
Some kind of selfie idk…
I have a really beautiful girlfriend. :)
i would just like to point out that the tumblr eu fandom could probably do a pilot episode of a more canon-accurate prequel with a £30 budget
see now that’s something i’d throw money at because i know the tumble eu fandom would do it way better.
lgr we’d spend the money on curtains in appropriate chapter colours and then. idk make a papier-mâché rassilon statue and find a nice rock
THE EU FANDOM IS NOT PERMITTED ANYWHERE IN THE GENERAL VICINITY OF ROCKS.
Listened to Night Thoughts earlier, and while it took me a little while to get into it, by about the end of Episode 1, I was really enjoying it, and from there it just built up, getting more and more dramatic, with some fascinating characters! Definitely one of my favourite Seven stories.
Personally, I’m dancing a little jig right now. BBC3 always was the Beeb’s ugly red-headed stepchild. It was a waste of money that never produced anything of note. Now maybe BBC4 will have a few more pennies to spend on decent TV.
80 episodes of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps? Someone must atone for this sin. Someone must pay!
BBC3: Good riddance!
Whilst I agree there was a lot of shit on BBC Three (Gavin & Stacey and 2 Pints) there were some genuinely great shows that debuted on the channel. They might have ended up on BBC 2 but it’s unlikely as the channel is more geared towards ratings than experimentation.
Little Britain, Mongrels, Mighty Boosh, Torchwood, Ideal, Being Human, Uncle just a few that I can think of.
BBC4 should be safe now, but they need to do more shows like History Of Horror with Mark Gatiss.
They’ve already refused to commit to BBC4’s future safety, and if the BBC3 online launch goes well and saves them money, you can guarantee that BBC4 will be next on the firing line. They’re already saying how if they didn’t axe BBC3, they wouldn’t be able to fund the likes of Sherlock, so it’s not going to be going to experimental ventures on the other channels, it’s going back into their big BBC1 hitters which really don’t need a bigger budget.
Stan Lee on Marvel OTPs
So basically Stan Lee ships everyone with anyone.
God hath spoken.
So long as they stay straight. If you’re suggesting a character should be bi, then Stan will present himself as the sole voice of judgement, mock the idea, and accuse you of just trying to be controversial!
The only kind of SuperWhoLock I’ll ever accept.
