:bat: The sci-fi, fantasy and capeshit thread


Dr Who,

Well I watched this weeks history lesson on the division of Pakistan and India the only reference to a time lord was a broken watch.
This could be the worst series since Sylvestor McCoy and that was bad.


I think you’re right, I’d rather watch the series where Sly McCoy has to fight the liquorice allsorts monster.



Glad this got bumped.

Arrow. Started watching while waiting for all the new season shows to hit Netflix. It is enjoyable entertainment, has character development and stuff in it and a back story.
But Why oh why do they suddenly mix and match into other DC Universe shows?
Suddenly out of nowhere we are in an episode that is Flash and so have no idea what the story was, we get absorbed into that THEN the episode finishes and is continued on Legends of Tomorrow.
Then one minute we are chasing a dude in Cape Shit and suddenly we are time travelling.

Bloody annoying in a binge watching universe when the other shows aren’t on the same platform.

Rant over.

And you’re all being anti-PC sexists moaning about Jody and Dr Who…
Sylvester McCoy second only to Colin Baker in awfulness


Well, I’m quite enjoying it to be honest.

After the last couple of incarnations touchy, feely stuff having some serious topics thrown at us is good.

Granted it’s probably a turn off for a lot but the last couple of episodes have told some stories that need telling.


Agree with a lot of the above about DW.
I quite like Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor and you’d think that there would be a whole bunch of interesting stuff to explore with the first female incarnation. But the writing is shit and the PC nonsense is extremely irritating.


Agreed, Jodie is great but she has been left with a writing team that has been not great for a couple of years now, same with Capaldi, I liked him as the Doctor but some of the stories he was given were utter drivel.


I never realised how bad he was :joy:


haha yeah not his finest moment :lou_smiley:


It’s meant to be escapism @BTripz not trying to tell us what happened or why.

I want lizard girls. Potato men, Daleks, Cybermen, even the Cardiff bay scenery would be better than Sheffield.
