Someone call the Chancellery Guard. Commander Maxil's out of uniform. AGAIN.

Retaining and remixing the "hooded jacket" that Capaldi introduced in his later seasons was a very very good decision.

Oh, the world's not so crazy, Kolenkhov. It's the people in it. Life's pretty simple if you just relax.



Virtually everything about this season, as information trickles in, has instilled me with confidence except the Rosa Parks thing which, to be fair, erases all of that confidence and fills me with dread.

Fanny packs are apparently in again, although it didn't occur to me until just now that of course they can't call them that in the UK.

Thank you. It was taking me a while to figure out what a "bum bag" was, and I wasn't about to Google it. I wasn't even looking at where it was, I was thinking it was the jacket, or was looking for a messenger bag type...thing.

Well they aren't actually filming there so it could be Jodies personal belonging for between takes and down time.

Yeah, it is. Isn't it?

Bowties are cool.

True, but I can also see the Doctor thinking itís the greatest, coolest invention ever.

I feel like I read somewhere that they're actually popular among actors on location for this very reason. I think Stephen Amell wears one over his Green Arrow suit.

A Fred Gray (incidentally, the name of the lawyer of Rosa Parks) was spotted as a role in Doctor Who in one actor's CV, so it looks like even more confirmation Chibnall wants to go there.

Really, really scared the writing team is going to gently caress it up, but let's hope they don't?

The only way it would even approach being okay is if The Doctor & Co. are just there as observers because one of them wanted to see it happen. If they have any kind of influence on the actual events in the episode, itíll be a shitshow.

I reckon it would be fine if they stop an alien that's trying to gently caress it up by killing someone, like how the Master tried to prevent the Magna Carta.

I think at this point the best that we can hope for is a sort of parallel depiction, in which we see the Rosa Parks story play out, there's an alien threat trying to disrupt it that never comes in direct contact with it, and the beats in the story kind of match up to make it feel like they're connected. Even that, though... it's going to be very, very easy to be insensitive, insulting and cringe-worthy.

Again, Zygons were photographed on-set, so we already know there will be fuckery from them.

Ugh! Why can't leave well enough alone with Zygons, and not use them beyond the scope of what they can do narratively. If only there were some catchy phrase I could use to express this sentiment - Doctor What, help me out here?

Can't we just have a normal, non-antagonistic relationship with Zygons?

We were caught up in the hype of Ten being back.
