Okay, here is a review of the Day of the Doctor which is actually intelligent, analytical and (more to the point) written by somebody who just enjoyed it.

Except I lost the link. Genius. Fail.

irrelevant that is something of a running joke here in the bee-hive

One of the things I have always disliked in (certain) fandoms is that the "fans" are too busy discussing plot holes, inconsistencies, and "how blank would do it better" that they lose the point.

Fandom is something to be enjoyed, the show is made for one purpose: Your enjoyment.

Sometimes, things are goofy or bizarre, continuity goes to hell, characterisation gets ropey, the plot is ridiculous. But. Just Enjoy the Fun.

Yes, Doctor Who can always be as weird as ever, the monsters no worse as ever and the companions as clichéd as ever. But, I enjoy it! Screw Time War chronology and the places where 10's tennies were laced up wrong. It is good, I enjoy it and I want to celebrate it!
  • *scratches head* Was that the review, or was there meant to be a link in there?
    • No. Buggery!

      • Ah, that makes more sense now! Good review -thanks for posting it.

        I do have some sympathy for those who hate the change to the Time War since I am still angry about the end of Donna's story, but general hole-picking and whining for the sake of it gets no sympathy at all.
        • To be fair, I was hacked off by the whole Doctor-Donna thing -- it was lazy plotting and didn't give Donna the ending she deserved and the mind-wiping really was just nasty. [Besides, how does her family account for her "year out"?]

          It just seemed to be one of those "teaser theme things" that was named before anybody bothered to write the plot is was tied into and then followed it with a "fixit" that made (very) little sense.

          It is totally okay to talk about what you don't like and feel angry or peeved about, but the aggressive, whining vulture thing really gets me down. It happened, find something you liked about it, and then use an "at least" -- it's really calming.
