It's enough that Ruminant T Diddle was responsible for the crimes of Love and Monsters, Last of the Time Turds, Partners in Crime, and Journey's End.
Hah, two of those are out and out classics!

Which ones? All the stories in that list have big fuck off flaws.


I suspect Rani is referring to Love and Monsters and Last of the Time Turds, Mike.
No, Love and Monsters and Journey's End though I agree Last of the Time Lords is good.

Nonsense.

RTD callously dismissed John Scott Martin in the same flippant manner he cruelly dismissed Terry Molloy and Paul McGann.

In John Scott Martins case, he was an old man and had been loyal and done 26 years service to the programme.

I dare say he died a heart broken man, his professional confidence shattered for all time because of Fatheads bullying arrogance.


Possibly better than dying of exhaustion inside a Dalek casing?

Seriously, though, it's a bit in poor taste for you to use the death of an old man as an excuse to have another bash as Davies. It's not really the place, is it?
I agree with you. Rob is just using this and has no evidence that he ever asked to appear in the show again. It is really insulting to say he died "a broken man". He may have been very happy, in the loving care of his family and friends. Besides he was very old and to ask him to wheel around a Dalek in his eighties would be irresponsible.

Shame on Rob

Journey's End? A classic? You're taking the piss.

If that rubbish is a "classic", then episode 5 of The Space Pirates is the greatest ever work of art.

You are funny, Rani.

This from the man who thinks Deadly Assassin is "shit."

Anyway, something broadcast only last year cannot be "classic."

It was his mention of Love and Monsters which shocked me more.

Ah, Rani's a big fan of Love and Monsters.

It's a "brave" attempt at a post-ironic sideways glance at the self-referentiality and intertextuality inherent in Doctor Who. Apparently. And Peter Kay's really, really funny. Honest.

I thought it was an nasty piece of shit.

Post-post-modernism? I don't think that's evolved yet. Perhaps we should write a manifesto.

I can swallow someone liking Love & Monsters more easily than someone liking Journey's end.

Liking L&M is like enjoying monkey's brains - seems very strange, but it's so odd that maybe I just don't understand it.

Liking JE is like enjoying chicken mcnuggets - seems very strange, but it's not a case of something being a bit too different as much as it's a case of it being an extremely shitty, processed version of something that already exists, so it's probably the consumer who doesn't quite get something Laughing

What do you mean "no evidence"?
Read the news report you pillock!

Rubbish.

John Scott Martin clearly told BBC news how he'd dearly love to be the chief Dalek operator on the new series for one last roll-out.

Read the news and the facts before you comment next time.

As Tobias Vaughn remarked to Professor Watkins, "THERE'S a good fellow!"

AFAIK Terrance isn't interested in writing TV scripts anymore.

More's the pity. Still, it's understandable that he should want to retire to a quiet life these days. I also suspect he wouldn't want to deal with all the bullshit that's involved in trying to make TV today, ie. committees and demographics. I certainly know he thinks the modern trend for endless rewriting of scripts is a load of crap. He has said, quite rightly, that his philosophy always was that if you can't get a story to work on the second draft, forget it.

I also know RTD now has a lot of control over the script-writing process,and Robert Shearman was unhappy with the number of re-writes "Dalek" required (for instance, when the rights to use Daleks were up in the air, he had to invent a new monster, which was ultimately discarded).

Have you any link to this?

I would have though Terrance would have said this purely because RTD and Co have neglected to ask him.

He has no problem writing things for BBV even at extremely short notice, or doing last minute rewrites because of their budgetary constraints.

I think Vector-Victor is probably right. Terrance hasn't worked in television at all since about 1985.
