The top 15 things that annoy Doctor Who fans
When it comes to Doctor Who, it’s a thin line between love and hate – and on the internet, they’re basically the same thing.
Via Twitter, Facebook and comments underneath our articles, RadioTimes.com has played host to this anger more times than we’d like to count. And therefore, we think we have a pretty good idea of what it is that infuriates Whovians the most. But what is it? Here, from 15-1, we count down just what it is that turns Doctor Who fans into Daleks…
15. “The sets wobble”
This one doesn’t bother me so much, probably because at my age I remember black & white TV, no remotes of any kind and 7 channels!
I also understand intellectually about “BBC budgets” and I would hope most fans understand about that. The younger generations that had CGI and such all there life may have this problem more than I do. But come on, the Robot in “Robot” itself is great, it’s the effects of it’s “growth” that suck and that’s because they only had CSO (color separation overlay) a crude green screen and 4 Pounds and a wad of gum. 🙂
“YOUTHFUL EXUBERANCE MAKES ME FEEL OLD AND OBSOLETE.”
13. Gender changing Time Lords
“TWIN HEARTED SHAPE CHANGING TIME TRAVELLING ALIEN IMMORTALS CANNOT SWITCH GENDER. THAT IS JUST ABSURD.”
I have already spoken on this several times in ad nauseum, My problem is more about Political Correctness and The Doctor himself than anyone else.
12. Hanky panky with Companions
“THE DOCTOR IS AN ALIEN, WHY WOULD HE FANCY HUMANS? IT’S LIKE KISSING YOUR CAT. YOUR CAT WHO LOOKS LIKE KA-REN GILL-AN.”
True, Classic Who never went there, even a little bit and current Who went there A LOT, especially with David Tennant and Matt Smith, but that pendulum has swung back again with Peter Capaldi.
I have no real problem with it myself.
“DO NOT TWEET THE END-ING. I HAVE NOT SEEN IT.
I HAVE NOW SEEN IT.
I MUST TWEET THE END-ING.”
Another good reason why I’m not on Twitter. But I wrote an entire blog on this awhile ago.
One man’s spoiler is another man’s preview. 🙂
