I heard today that Peter Jackson may direct an episode of Doctor Who in the not-too-distant future. Apparently, he's always wanted to, but has been too busy recently producing and directing The Hobbit trilogy.

The Hobbit movies are laughable... but then again, so is the new Doctor Who.

After over 50 episodes of Old Who over a month, I'll take New Who any day, and twice on Sunday.

Anyone catch the premiere episode for the new Doctor? I'm on the fence with this one. I like the idea of taking an older direction and the (almost flat-out stated in the script) decision to cut back the hyper-sexualization of the Doctor that has taken place throughout the nuWho time period. I don't like the fact that this Doctor seems to be a call back to the wrong Baker.

Yes, it is. You don't like the new Doctor Who. That's fine. You're entitled to your opinion. You're even entitled to defend your opinion with substantial arguments.

Reminding us that you don't like the new Doctor Who every time you get the chance, even when you're contributing nothing new to the thread, only serves to antagonize those Doctor Who fans who look at this thread as a way of talking about what's new on their favorite TV program. What you're doing is a bad thing. Some would even call it trolling.

You make some good points. How about this: I'll stop trash-talking the new Doctor Who if you start agreeing with me. Does that sound fair?

No. Why should anyone submit to your blatant attempt to control debate in this way? I will agree or disagree with you only on those principles I consider important and NOT in submission to any attempt by you to control a debate in your favor.

I'll tell you what. Feel free to trash talk the new Doctor Who as much as you want, for I never asked that you stop. All I ask (and all that I have ever asked) is that whenever you do trash talk the new Doctor Who, you give supporting arguments for your trash talk. Explain why you don't like the program. Is the acting bad? Do you not like the story lines? Are the new enemies too over the top? etc. Give us an actual review. After all, this is the Reviews board. Even a negative review is a good review if it's well supported. All I ask is that you stop taking hit-and-run potshots at the new Doctor Who and at the opinions of those who like the program. Either give us a detailed evaluation of what you don't like about the new Doctor Who or don't post on this thread. It's really that simple.

I must say that I enjoyed the rather silly BBC costume drama - which was wildly anachronistic - Musketeers over the summer. Calpaldi's portrayal of Richelieu was so campy, he could have been a villian on the 1960's Batman show which perhaps accounts for why some don't see him as the Doctor.He really gave the old Cardinal a Snidely Whiplash take... (He was Burgess Meredith playing the Penguin playing Richelieu....) But I look forward to season two for good summer fare next year...

Can't say for sure though, as I've only been a casual Doctor watcher over the years though....

My dear Pete, we appear to be at an impasse. I think it is best that we now institute a moratorium on discussing Doctor Who, since we cannot do so in a civil manner. The topic of this thread shall no longer be about Doctor Who, but our favorite colors.

My favorite color is red. How about yours?

Let us therefore make a pact: I shall enumerate my reasons for not liking the new series, provided that you promise to agree with them. Do we have a deal?
No. I will not agree with you on anything just because I am bound by a stupid pact to do so. Therefore, I'm not making any pact.

My dear Pete, we appear to be at an impasse. I think it is best that we now institute a moratorium on discussing Doctor Who, since we cannot do so in a civil manner. The topic of this thread shall no longer be about Doctor Who, but our favorite colors.
Do NOT call me Pete!

My favorite color is red. How about yours?
Let's keep this thread on topic, shall we? The topic is Doctor Who. If you wish to discuss something other than Doctor Who, then don't post on this thread.

Amusing.

PtA took the troll bait hook, line and sinker, even though it was so obvious.

I knew what Iconodule was doing, and I know what I'm doing. I took the bait, but I did so intentionally, for a reason. Cool

All I ask (and all that I have ever asked) is that whenever you do praise the new Doctor Who, you give supporting arguments for your adulation. Explain why you like the program. Is the acting good? Do you like the story lines? Are the new enemies da bomb? etc. Give us an actual review. After all, this is the Reviews board. Even a positive review is a bad review if it's not supported. All I ask is that you stop making hit-and-run accolades of the new Doctor Who. Either give us a detailed evaluation of what you like about the new Doctor Who or don't post on this thread. It's really that simple.

I am compelled, by public reason just, to vigorously repel this slanderous accusation of "trolling" the thread. Nay, but rather, I have sought, in my modest way, to elevate a discourse which heretofore amounted to little more than a convocation of concordant grunts. It is indeed those who would populate the thread with such banalities as "The new episode was good" who keep the thread in the mire of folly and who would more fitly be named "trolls." And to this paltry sum of thought I have but applied Pete's very measure and rule which he applied to me, no more nor less. Verily, I took the Philistine's own sword and cut his head off with it! And if this be enough to earn censure then a woeful double standard has evinced itself.

Enough.  The General Fora are described in the rules as being for "Discussion, no debates or polemics.  These are information-only sections, with relevant discussion of topics permitted."  Therefore, criticizing another's "execrable taste," calling in return a "party pooper," are not the sort of things which should occur here.  At first, some of this appeared to be in good fun, but the repeated calling of Peter the Aleut "Pete," after he requested that such not be done, and the back-and-forth about trolling are crossing the line.  Any more of this and I will need to take action.
