The Doctor will break all the laws of time to save Clara but not Donna or his goddamn wife and mother-in-law

Also, it's real bullshit that he got his memories of Clara back. Turns out all they had to do was agree she eventually had to die and then nobody needed to lose their memories, and she could have hung around with him forever

He probably can't shake the idea of really losing her after she been showing up since the very day he left for adventure and would constantly show up in some form.

Ok, yes, that was the reason they gave. But now he does remember? So I guess it was a bullshit reason?

In 2015, Steven Moffat endorsed the fan theory that Goronwy is a future incarnation of the Doctor, and said that the idea fit well with the Doctor's line about retiring to become a beekeeper in "The Name of the Doctor".

God it must run in the family. Got on a crowded elevator at the last con and made “boy this sure isn’t bigger on the inside” jokes. Elevator stopped and we all parted to let the guy in the back corner out.

You know, it'd be funny if they did a Multiple Doctors story and didn't have them immediately reveal it to eachother. I want Seventh Doctor to try dealing with his new companion, a weird guy in a leather jacket who thinks everything is fantastic

"I’m just a bloke in a box telling stories. I didn’t come here because I'm ashamed. A bit of shame never hurt anyone. I came… because you're sick and you asked. And because sometimes, on a good day, if I try very hard… I’m not some old Time Lord who ran away. I'm the Doctor."


To me, that sums up the Doctor well enough

The modern Sherlock has its fair share of problems, but The Abominable Bride paying homage to the shots of Holmes looking out Baker Street window taken from the ITV series makes up for a ton of them. Jeremy Brett's illness robbed us of a magnificent Holmes.

That episode is goddamn terrible, but I guess it's par for the course in BBC sherlock

People latched on to Cumberbatch and Freeman as a duo, I suppose.

It's true that they both do a good job with the material given to them. I don't think it's Cumberbatch's fault that he was told to, for example, act out a scene where Sherlock pretends Watson is going to die in an explosion simply to make him cry and beg to be saved, that loveable rascal.

Wheat Loaf posted:

I think Moffat and Gatiss are far more enamoured with the Sherlockian game aspect of the Sherlock Holmes canon (i.e. reconciling inconsistencies between the stories, usually by recasting everything as some grand, elaborate duel between Holmes and Moriarty) than they are interested in the actual mysteries.

I used to have this massive two-volume annotated Sherlock where the annotations were all, like, trying to establish what day things happened on and what kind of snake the speckled band really was and a bunch of other insane poo poo. it was incredible and I wish I still had it.

They determined the speckled band was ACTUALLY a hybrid lizard with no legs, that's definitely what ACD had in mind when he wrote the story

I do think it's funny that Elementary was very clearly an attempt to ape the success of Sherlock, yet because it's far less ambitious it has ironically ended up a better adaptation
