WHEN WILL THE ONSEASON ONLY FAGS LEAVE
IF YOU DON'T COME HERE ALL YEAR THEN DON'T HAVE OPINIONS
What was exactly the purpouse of the coordenates? It's not like killing people with them would make it to send a messege to his planet, so what was the puepouse besides of a bland plot point?
Don't like a token blind character showing up /tv/?
Well that's just
Hologram Doctor isn't real ghost, can still interact with machine to open faraday cage?
Was it just the sonic doing it? Cause I was under the impression that things were deadlocked cause of the flooding in the base
>Doctor is dying again
>doesn't give a shit about his confession dial
>literally one episode after the Time Lord confession dial rule was made
Fucking Christ, this show can't even manage a week of continuity.
Can't alienate the normies who watch one episode then never again, can we?
The Doctor and Clara land in an underwater base, because the TARDIS needs them to. The crew there are mining(?), and found that spaceship. Their leader dies, and he becomes a ghost. Basically, it's base under siege with ghosts or something. I don't remember too much myself.
>4 minutes in
>O'DONNELL FOR NEXT COMPANION
Fuck Whithouse, she had no reason to die.
It's explained in a vague, wishy-washy, typical Doctor Who way in Under the Lake: the more ghosts/beacons reciting the co-ordinates, the stronger the signal.
Like all Doctor Who plot logic, you're free to poke holes in it. There's plenty wrong with the idea, but you're better just not thinking about it if you actually want to enjoy the show.

>Bootstrap Paradox monologue opening
I never knew I wanted more sci-fi books references in DW up until now. Maybe a nod to Foundation next, pls Moffat?
Two to three series later probably we'll know who he is just like the Mummy on the Space Express.
Right on the feels.
Just watched tonight's episode. I suspect this bootstrap paradox will be the overarching plot of the series and be solved in the finale.
So that makes me wonder... Why does every fucking Moffat story have to be about time loops and paradoxes? Why does he have such a hard-on for that shit? It's so fucking boring and paint by numbers at this point.
He needs to get a new schtick or just be replaced as showrunner. Moffat's time loop shit is so goddamn boring.
Rose > all
P.s. Clara is a psychotic fuck
Presumably. The planet he conquered was liberated by a race that would bury their enemy's corpses on another far-away planet. Seems like a pretty easy way to get off-world and re-conquer something.
He's wrapped up in a hearse ship and everyone involved declares him dead. Then he gets up and walks away suddenly to start killing people and it's never explained.
Also, what happened to the pilot?
>Why does every fucking Moffat story have to be about time loops and paradoxes? Why does he have such a hard-on for that shit?
Well, it is a show about time travel.
Between the season's overarching theme being the timelord confession disc, gallifrey, the never-mentioned-before timelord/greatest enemy prophecy, and why the doctor left gallifrey in the first place, I doubt Moffat will also be able to cram in shit about the nature of paradoxes and where they come from.
So we're 4 episodes in
Is this the best Who series yet, lads? I think it is.
Probably, but I think next episodes will suck considering the whole viking thing. They can't do medieval right, Shakespeare sucked, sherwood sucked and this next one will probably suck too. They should stay victorian if they wanna do period.
>PC's are liquid cooled
>PC are Peter Capaldi's initials
>Peter Capaldi is in TV series Doctor Who
>TV are The Valeyard's initials
>The Valeyard Series 9 villian confirmed
Capaldi wasn't even Capaldi in the opening two-parter. He was playing le meme Docteur because of the impending death thing.
Clara is still little miss perfect.
Danny was a soldier, he dug wells.
He wanted to conquer Earth, also maybe he didn't knew how to pilot the hearse ship.
S8 had no Danny up until Listen and even then it was a good use of him imo
But the banter!
Magpie has been in lots of episodes all the way back to the First Doctor's run. The episode you're referring to with Rose was just RTD being a fanfiction fag and overexplaining things and/or making too big a deal out of something small.
Check it: http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Magpie_Electricals
>monitoring a hearse
U wot m8?
And why would they, they think they've oppressed the Tivolians already, they're not gonna think this one got huge balls and is gonna do anything against them. And a hearse can't do anything anyway.
Okay, fair enough, it's just a NuWho thing. But it's just an easter egg. The note on the wiki even says the logo is an inside joke with the designers. No need to read much into it.
>He wanted to conquer Earth,
So fly to the Armada and lead them back, or fly to some other planet that has better technology for you to contact your people then lead them back
>can turn people into ghost broadcasting a signal by using unseen and unknown previously even by the Doctor technology that lets him do that
>from the race that previously conquered the Tivolians so would know about their technology
>can't fly a hearse spaceship
That'd be awfully convenient and scream of shit writing
yeah but you're still a stupid fag simply for
>The episode you're referring to with Rose was just RTD being a fanfiction fag and overexplaining things and/or making too big a deal out of something small.
>implying it's not good now
>implying the Doctor hasn't always been childish
1, 2, and
6were shit, m8.
>You now realize the doctor wired his brain up to a dalak casing as a joke, allowing himself to only be moderately amused, as finding it hilarious would have been expressing enough emotion to have fired the gun.
TAKE THE SHOES OFF YOU BITCH
wait a second
this is like the 22nd century or something that the episode took place, right?
shouldn't they have invented some way for Cass to be able to hear? Even today we're doing great with repairing hearing and even blindness. I feel like in a hundred years there won't be any blind or deaf people because the treatment is so cheap and effective
>Oh cool, it's another unresolvable time loop plot!
Thought no one ever. Remember when Doctor Who was an adventure show that involved time travel instead of being a show about time travel paradoxes?
People choose to stay deaf, because SJWs convince everyone that it's offensive to fix a deaf person's ears, because we should all just celebrate diversity instead of trying to make people like us.
I'd like to turn everyones attention to around the 35:30 mark in the episode. Cass, Clara, and indian guy are running away from the ghosts. They run into the room where the doctor is the chamber thing. It starts to beep loudly as it opens revealing the doctor. Cass turns around immediately in unison with the others to see what it is.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE WHEN SHE CANT HEAR.
People in modern times choose to stay deaf because they don't want to undergo invasive brain surgery with a possibility of damaging themselves even further or having other complications.
Hearing people just say, "Get a cochlear implant! Give your kids cochlear implants! It's important for them to hear!" But they don't realize that cochlear implants are fucking brain surgery, so doing that to your kid is actually a very risky decision and even when it works they can't hear anything close to perfectly anyway. Plus, if you're 100% deaf a cochlear implant won't do anything, you have to have some small percentage of hearing ability for it to have the chance of working in the first place.
My dad is deaf, my mom is hearing. I grew up around both hearing and deaf people and have seen both sides of this issue. I can also assure you that SJWs have nothing to do with this.
At least we've progressed beyond the 1950's mentality that learning sign language will literally make you become retarded.
>people in modern times choose to stay deaf
Yeah, but that's not the 22nd century, is it?
I'm sorry your parents are deaf. I really am. But that doesn't have any impact on your ability to read.
Were they sonic?
Will they be sonic in the Christmas special?
>At least we've progressed beyond the 1950's mentality that learning sign language will literally make you become retarded.
I actually still think this, for anecdotal reasons.
I never realized that it was something that people commonly thought.
I'm more than reasonably sure it's just my paranoia though. I assumed the character in the show was born without auditory nerves or whatever, but was so good at what she did that the company/military paid for a translator to use hand signs at her.
Them being in love at the end was pretty silly though.
As much as I hated the character of River Song, I would suck out Alex Kingston's Jewish queefs.
Soon everything will be sonic. Next series the Doctor will have sonic shoes, a sonic watch, sonic rings and sonic hair. His new companion will have a sonic handbag and sonic earrings. And it still doesn't really mean anything because why do sonic sunglasses have fucking wifi? In what way is that sonic? Doctor Who is ruined forever.
It was a very, very common thought up until like the 80s or so. Doctors would tell the parents of deaf children not to let them learn sign language or else they would never be able to learn English, never be able to communicate with anyone, and have permanent impairment to their basic ability to learn anything.
In the last 20-30 years we've discovered that learning sign language as a child actually improves motor skills, improves communication abilities, and actually makes the child able to more easily learn other languages. All the benefits of being a bilingual child apply to learning sign language, with the bonus of being able to learn and use it before spoken language is a possibility, and it helps you start speaking at an earlier age to boot.
This one, you mean?
>she snogged an Injun.
I hadn't even looked at it like this.
There was no hint of them having anything more than a completely professional relationship or any feelings displayed for the other guy to pick up on. (except maybe Cass not allowing the guy into the ship).
It's like the BBC realized they killed the other white woman off too fast to fulfill their race-mixing propaganda quota and so quickly jotted in a scene between the other two appropriate characters right at the end.
I just googled "sophie stone actress", and she showed up in the bottom-left corner.
I guess what I've experienced is this trend of parents teaching the kid a handful of basic hand signals, which seems to make the kid have no reason to talk when they can point and wave at shit.
My neice is like seventeen months old and still only says a few words and I've been blaiming her mother teaching her "sign language".
Reasonably I realize that the more significant contributing factor is the mother's sub-human readhead genetics.
I really just want my brother's children to be intelligent so I don't feel pressured to breed and can maintain my wizard status while watching doctor who in my parent's basement, where I'm currently posting this from.
Thanks for this
since my search for sophie stone's armpits has turned up absolutely nothing.
As an opposing anecdote, I learned sign language as a baby and was speaking full articulate sentences by age 2. Same with my brother and sister.
The trick is that you need to still speak to the kid and teach them more complex sign language and more complex speech as they develop. Some people do suck at parenting, and kids also develop at different rates.
Just finished being Murrican and watching Before The Flood
What did /who/ think?
Christ that was actually pretty good
The Fisher King was freaky
The guitar was based, especially in the theme
The Doctor made Beethoven's career
Serafinowicz did a great job as the voice
Paul Kaye isn't Dave but he's still pretty weird as Prentis, just goes to show that Whithouse can still write his aliens - especially the ones he came up with about four years ago
You guys hype for Maisie Williams next week?
WE ARE VIKINGS
Right, any good foley artist would do. Maybe some fanning some, finger slapping? Something to think about if small beginnings is ever a thing again. Might be a bit heavy on the exposition though.
>interracial lesbian sex
BLUE CHECKERED TROUSERS
Oh shit wait a minute the 2000 Year Diary from Power of The Daleks is coming back fucking hell YES
>someone actually believes Before the Flood was good
>someone actually believes that the opening two parter were good enough for a Platinum age start
You have low /who/ standards m8
*In Under the Lake, the Doctor learns that the ghosts are broadcasting co-ordinates to the suspended animation chamber, which was in the Church.
*The Doctor travels back in time to connect all the puzzle pieces together, and to find out how the alien ship ended up on Earth in the first place.
*He finds that the mole man brought the ship to Earth.
*Some shit happened.
*The Doctor saved the day.
So this two-parter was pretty great... still a tad disappointed it ended with a hologram ex machina. But atleast they made the ex machina super interesting with the whole bootstrap paradox thing.
Proud nationalist Doctor WHEN?!?
Yeah, but it just kind of happened. They didn't spend 10 minutes explaining bootstrap paradoxes beforehand and then talking about the rules of time travel and then watching the writers jerk off over their own scripts because of how clever they think they are.
Time travel is increasingly regarded as a menace. History is being polluted.
The Encyclopedia Galactica has much to say on the theory and practice of time travel, most of which is incomprehensible to anyone who hasn't spent at least four lifetimes studying advanced hypermathematics, and since it was impossible to do this before time travel was invented, there is a certain amount of confusion as to how the idea was arrived at in the first place. One rationalization of this problem states that time travel was, by its very nature, discovered simultaneously at all periods of history, but this is clearly bunk.
The trouble is that a lot of history is now quite clearly bunk as well.
Here is an example. It may not seem to be an important one to some people, but to others it is crucial. It is certainly significant in that it was the single event which caused the Campaign for Real Time to be set up in the first place (or is it last? It depends which way round you see history as happening, and this too is now an increasingly vexed question).
The Doctor is just really autistic about the Time Lord rules for time travel. He could go around changing time, crossing his own timelines, having hedonistic orgies with his past and future selves... he just chooses not to do those things and makes big statements about how dangerous it all is because he's scared of the possibilities, but he's truly just not sure what would happen.
Yes, then he'll go back and fight in a war, one when he easily wins, and free the people from their oppressors, he'll try a d get to more planets to do the same, but he won't have access to the tardis, so he pretends to be dead and the people he freed ships his body off planet
Well they certainly can't have white man paki woman, that would be haram.
Just finished the episode, /who/.
Am I the only one that loves a good ontological paradox?
Sometimes they can be used as a cheap "get out of shit" easily, but in this case it was more of a means for the Doctor to figure out what to do.
Overall a pretty great story, just a few complaints. The Fisher King was a let down. He didn't really do too much for the main antagonist, and he was killed with a tiny fib. Also the romantic relationships between some of the crew felt really forced.
But these are definitely not story ruining faults.
>Also the romantic relationships between some of the crew felt really forced.
Oh, just fuck off with the veiled racism already. If you're going to be racist, be racist. Say what's really on your mind, and stop being a coward.
I think its really nice that they've got this, and it has been used so many times, but hasn't been given attention, it just adds to it a bit.
Sadly, Moffat will find a way to make it some kind of multi-year arc about how after the idiots lantern Mr magpie spread throughout the universe with his wares, and all are infected with The Wire and somehow it's behind all evil in existence
>he was killed with a tiny fib
This was actually a pretty big plothole. The Fisher King said he could sense the coordinates resonating in the Doctor's mind, then a minute later the Doctor said he erased the writing and purged the coordinates from his own mind. At that point the Fisher King should have still sensed the resonating and just not believed the Doctor.
Hmm. I wonder if they'll get at least someone noticible from the new series eventually.
>Our licence to produce content based on Doctor Who includes storylines and characters up to and including Matt Smith's final appearance in The Time of the Doctor
What? Whithouse spent no time to develop their connections on screen. The deaf lady was protective of the one guy, but it just didn't come off as love. It's only near the end Whithouse says "oh yeah I forgot to mention they were in love."
uneducated riffraff spotted
the lighting of RTD merged with the ugly zoom-face of Sherlock. It's a damn waste of a good actor.
I could almost hear the sigh of relief being breathed by thousands of lazy people in search of Halloween costumes when those glasses were introduced.
Anyway, I wish the Doctor would quit being "doomed to die" every fucking episode and that somebody would finally pay attention to the Gallifrey arc that was left hanging. It would be much more interesting to see the Doctor face actual, series-altering changes and challenges, as opposed to this repetitive angsty bullshit.
You know, I quite like it when Time Travel is a part of the stories instead of being a way to just characters into that week's episode. Worded that poorly but you know what I mean.
Also that viking guy with the cyber-looking eye reminds me of that king from The Pirate Planet. You know, from the Key to Time arc.
It's ok. It does post apocalyptic team survival pretty well especially with a scifi setting as the small twist to it but i'm super bored of that type of thing with how popular it is these days
If that sounds like something you'd like then you'll probably really like it
the first time the doctor saw river song he was the allonsy doctor

Nah, dude. She's going to become the Minister of War
