Useful material:

it can go in fun space along with star trek and star wars and other nerd magnets. or geek magnets. i dont care i dont like new dr who. it was more fun with wobbly card board sets and rigid rubber costumes. old timey b movie special effects were a joke a even in the 60s. it could not take itself to seriously as a result. now though, modern b movie special effects are bland and perfunctory. risible promotes work arounds in the scripts, ingenuity to hide the joins and make the most of what you got. do more with less, necessity the mother of invention, yadda yadda yadda. it kept the show runners grounded and not get any delusions of grandeur. perfunctory now. not risible. no amazing either. not enough for the spectacle needed to carry 'epic' tales. 60s dr who werent the match of 2001 space oddessy for grand vision and polish. dr who knew its place. modern dr sherlock space jesus a little too full of their own importance. the soap writing hacks behind new dr who with no experience of a grand sci fi visions coming from a background of domestic dramas where the most epic narratives involved someone vandalising an allotment couldnt up their game with dr supernerd talking exposition at people with contrived tragedies and portentous doom lacking any kind of emotional investment when even dr formulaic character traits only real differences between incarnations was accent. dr geordie, dr scots, dr older scots, dr doesnt have a penis. just all blandly superficial with subpar computer game graphics unable to make enemies we'd been laughing at for 40 years intimidating. copy and pasting hundreds of robots with no moving parts and watching them wizz around space doesnt sell the 'most deadly threat in the universe ever' thing they keep laying on so thickly. i will only grudgingly accept rocket boosters to master stairs, but flying around space in massive fleets i will not. look at the things. they are fucking daleks not x wings. it just looks ridiculous. not epic. not convincing. not fun. and you got avengers over on netflicks. dr who cant compete with action adventure with epic proportions. it should be at a human level not dreary space opera. thats blake 7 for fucks sake. dr who should be able to best a dalek invasion by flinging a towel over it an poking it with an umbrella. thats how you do sci fi on the telly. its meant to be arse. dr john hurt didnt even have scarf.
