I know (it's actually one of my favourite films), but Terry Gilliam admitted that he had never read Nineteen Eighty-Four.


I didnt know that!! Just goes to show what a bit of talent can do.

Although I'm seriously dreading to find out how the Eleventh Doctor's been written, I'm only watching to see the wonderful Matt Smith.

To be honest, im just going to pass on this. I know it will simply agravate me. If by some miracle it isnt the worst kind of pain inducing toss, I can watch online. But I doubt thats going to be an issue frankly.

I have no desire, interest or even remote intention of watching this. I can barely cope with New Poo itself these days, but the spinoffs are a pisstake too far.

I will watch nonetheless, if only to see Matt Smith. Whether I watch Part 2 is a completely different matter entirely.


You can tell this from only one line of Matt's dialogue? It looks to me that IF Matt is playing this one a bit Tennant, (Which I doubt), then evidently this is set in the interim two years at the end of The Eleventh Hour before he returned to pick up Amy, as she's not there. That could be explained as a little bit of post-regenerative trauma still being there before his own personality kicks in. I'm sure that Matt has a firm enough idea of his characterisation to make sure that RTD's script won't detract too much from his portrayal. Besides, SJA is aimed at kiddies rather than the family, so there's bound to be a bit of playing down involved.

Given that he's using an appearance-changing device in the clip, has anyone thought that the recent quotes on 'how many times can you change' might actually be referring to the limitations of this device, and RTD deliberately asked the press to misconstrue the dialogue because he knew it would piss fans off? The number of people who have been angered by this, and who have said "I'll never watch this AGAIN!!1!" yet have vowed to see the episode just to confirm their suspicions as to how shit it will be is frankly staggering. Whether you like RTD or hate him (And I suspect the latter- I'm no fan, but I won't go so far as to waste effort on HATING the guy) you must admit he's managed to pull in audience figures just for this episode.

As for me, I'm no fan of his version of SJS, have never seen an episode of this, and certainly won't be watching this- and I hold myself to that- so the 'controversy' really won't bother me one way or the other. As I said, it's a kiddies' show, and I'm damned if I will let myself get bent out of shape by one.

You seem to be suggesting that he's acting out of spite and malice rather than pompous incompetence. That surely makes people's dislike of him even more justified.

I'm suggesting that he knows how a lot of the older fans think, so he's playing up to their fears knowing full well that they'll watch anyway, if only to justify to themselves that they were right in thinking it was crap.

Classic reverse psychology in action, If I'm right...

Isn't "playing up to their fears" the same as jerking their chains and being malicious?

However you describe that kind of behaviour, I think the behaviour itself portrays him in a very poor light, in much the same way as the Hitler comment did.

The desire for or possible benefit to be derived from stirring up publicity doesn't mean he operates in a moral vacuum.

I hope Greywoolfe is right and this is just a lame piece of Fatheads obnoxious attention seeking by poking long term fans with a sharp stick, however the fact that the news reports state that the BBC officially confirm that The Doctor is an immortal leave me sceptical.

Absolutely spot-on, MG. Why would a multi-BAFTA-or-whatever-other-pomp-and-circumstance-bullshit-trophy winner who has the media in his pocket hailing him as a genius and his beady eyes set on a US career give a monkey's about riling the cages of a fairly narrow section of enthusiasts of a television show he supposedly no longer oversees if he WASN'T a petty egomaniac with a spiteful desire to throw the toys out of the pram because he can? The man is an absolute shower.

Don't get me wrong- I'm no fan of RTD, but knowing how devious a bastard he's been in the past with the press, I'm willing to bet that's what he's up to.

Has this comment from Fathead's recent SFX interview been mentioned on here yet? What an irresponsible, unprofessional, up-his-own-arse fuckwit.

"“For the first time ever, I went and watched old stuff,” Russell T Davies confesses. “We used to bring back monsters and I didn’t actually go and watch the old tapes, partly because I think the way you remember them is just as powerful as what they actually were. But I did go back and watch the end of ‘The Green Death’."


Russell T Davies didn't watch episodes of the show he was reviving, in order to understand what made it work in the past? Strikes me as a very superficial attitude to the show, and this might explain a lot of the problems with RTD's version of the "Doctor Who". Rolling Eyes

By contrast, Alex Kurtzman watched episodes of Classic Star Trek before working on last year's ST movie, so he and his co-writers could work out
how to adapt the strengths of the old series to the new film.
