Another Grumpy Post

Mon Aug 10, 2015, 7:17 AM
I've stumbled across this article about Doctor Who:…
4 reasons people are tired of watching... :-/I really don't know why I bother reading anything that pops up on yahoo. It just annoys me.

The first "reason" is about the Doctor getting meaner. And then there's a picture of Capaldi. I'm getting the sense this is one of those "I'm butthurt Matt Smith isn't still around" pieces. Sure enough, the rest of the reasons are hilarious. I am actually loving Capaldi as the Doctor. I think he's interesting and fun to watch. I Freaking Love that the show isn't filled with people falling in love with the Doctor again. As much as I liked Matt Smith, the romancey stuff in his run and David Tennent's started to really annoy me. Meaner is a nice change.

The second reason is about the storylines getting "harder to follow". Well, welcome to Doctor Who. This is not a new complaint. I see no difference in the quality of writing or the storylines. The main difference is we get an old dude instead of a young dude. And there's no romantic tension now with Clara. Everything else is the same as the Tennent, Smith run.

The third reason---yep, here we get to the "I'm still butthurt Matt Smith is gone" reason. The 50th anniversary felt too final. I did think it would have been a good time to pass the torch from Matt to Capaldi. I didn't like Matt's send off episode. 50th episode was full of fan service. It was fun. It was sad. It was fantastic. Maybe it felt final to you, but it certainly didn't feel final to me, and I side eye anyone for using that reason on a list of reasons why we're tired of Doctor Who (by the way, we're not). You have not convinced me you have the data to back up feelings. And an online survey doesn't tell me shit either. How many people did you poll? Who did you poll? Did you cast a wide enough net? Or did you just ask your friends and they agreed with you?

I will agree with the last reason (somewhat). "The barrier to entry has never been larger" Getting into the series now is probably daunting and somewhat difficult. I completely disagree with his requirements for getting into it. Why would you start with Tennent and then go back to Eccleston? Start with Eccleston. Go through the series in order. It's not exhausting, it's simple. If you're complaining how hard the series is to follow now, it would only get more difficult if you're watching it out of order.
