I haven’t been on my dash in days.
But I’m doing my weekly SPN Live Blog. But again, I won’t be on my dash until I catch up with DW.

I really, genuinely feel awful for all of the old Doctors now.
And the way Moffat explained it was soooo condescending:
“They’re all brilliant, they’re all terrific, but time has passed. I think it would be beyond the dignity of all those very fine actors to want to force themselves back into a costume from 20 or 30 years ago.” (SFX Magazine)
I saw Peter Davison speak yesterday at Hal Con, and his take on the issue was much the same. He said that he feels the 50th is celebrating the 50th Anniversary itself rather than 50 years of the program. He said that Moffat had basically penned something that celebrates his own work rather than something than something that celebrates the show as a whole. Peter Davison said that he felt let down to be part of a group excluded from the anniversary despite his role in its history, which is really very sad.

I know I’ve reblogged this before, but the added Davidson quote just makes me terribly sad. I got into who properly in the Eccleston years, but I’ve always been aware of it. It’s a huge part of the TV culture of the UK and the wider sci fi community. People who have no interest in the show now remember hiding behind the sofa when they saw the Daleks. And some people have been watching the show since the beginning and still love it now. The fiftieth should not be about one man and his ego. It should be about the fans, all the doctors, all the companions and all the stories that have been loved and lived. And we’re not going to get that.
Can people see now that’s it’s not just some people on tumblr who are upset about this? It’s the actual actors from the show you all claim to love, being shunted aside for Moffat’s wank fest.
It’s such a tragedy that this show, which is at its core about inclusion and acceptance and understanding, is being represented on its 50th anniversary by an episode that fundamentally fails to embrace those values.
Rassilon forbid we have a Doctor in this episode who has aged, or is “wee and dumpy”, or any number of things that don’t fit in with the current tv showrunner’s preferred aesthetics and need to stroke his own ego.
Yet another mating dance of the wild Tennant. (x)
#I feel like this is an accurate representation of what goes on inside the Doctor’s mind whenever he sees Rose (via kaynibbler16)
