No, really. I was hiking up a big hill in the Peak District. Photographic evidence available on request.

Ooh, I'd like to see the photographs, I bet the scenery was amazing.

Just before I got banned it was hugely amusing to see them all gushing stupidly over utter crap like "Partners In Crime" however.



Y'know, this was the point I realised I didn't understand fandom anymore at all. Not so much because some people gushed over it (hated it myself, of course) but these were the SAME PEOPLE who would then turn around and bash the crap out of Sylv, Colin, the 80s in total etc etc. And I really cannot comprehend that for the life of me. I mean, even looking at the nadir of the 80s (seasons 23 and 24), I'd still rather watch TMP, Vervoids or Paradise Towers than 3/4 of the shite that got produced last season. But for people who dismiss ALL of the 80s - y'know, even seasons 18 and 26 - to give ***** to the likes of PIC and Journey's End...

...I just don't get fandom anymore, dude. I really don't. We're just on different f*****g planets now. Crying or Very sad Rolling Eyes Question

Agreed - there were always divisions in fandom, but never like the one that very quickly opened up between New Who accepters and New Who rejecters.

25 years ago, for example some fans thought The Gunfighters was a comedy classic, others thought it was a complete failure of tone and an anomaly, but there could still be dialogue between them.

Now though, it's like the Sunnis and Shias, or the Israelis and Iranians: the only dialogue possible is the exchange of propaganda and counter-propaganda, or what my brother calls 'parallel monologues'.
