Chinballs Scorched Earth Doctor Who

Chinballs Scorched Earth Doctor Who

Chris Chibnall is building a tribute to all Gamma Malekind with the 13th season of Doctor Who.  He would appear to be privately furious about being fired from the job he’s wanted since high school and is determined to leave Russel T. Davies with nothing but smoking ruins.

There was a stream of leaks not too long ago that looked incomprehensibly ridiculous when they first hit the internet.  But one of these leaks has proven to be true.  And frankly, the Timeless Child looked to be every bit as insane when those leaks first sprung up, so yeah, maybe.

1. All of time comes from a planet named Time. (This one was so stupid I stopped reading this list when it first appeared, but the planet Time showed up in the last episode).

2. Episode 6 cliffhanger Davros in the Tardis console room asking the doctor to kill all the Daleks.

3. The Division was established to ensure the secrecy of the Timeless Child and her relationship with the Forbidden Realm, so the Time Lords imprisoned the Forbidden Realm’s leader using his own technology but then he gets out and brings the flux to the universe the timeless child resides in. 

4. The weeping angels are from the Forbidden Realm and are controlled by the Swarm. The Swarm is an interdimensional being who uses the flux to destroy swarm universes which he uses to harvest time energy to survive hence his name. His official title the Icon.  The Doctor is his offspring, but she chose a different path and birthed regeneration energy into our universe instead of swarm energy flux.

5. In the finale, series 13 ends with the Doctor going to ancient Gallifrey and teaming up with Ruth (The Black woman Doctor). The Swarm compares creation to a chessboard where weeping angels are pawns to gather energy and he and his sister are king and queen.

6. Chibnall is fighting to have Jodie Whitaker die without revealing who the new Who will be.

(If I was Davies, I’d let him have this last point.  So much easier to pretend none of it ever happened that way.)

It’s the scope of the vengeful incompetence that is truly impressive.   There is an ambition to this idiocy rarely seen. IF TRUE (and I really don’t know whether it is or not) it is the ultimate Gamma Male Wall of Text.

    Things were a lot simpler when it was just the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith (or Leela, or both Lady Romanas or the companion of your choice). No one really needed to know the Doctor’s origin story. No one cared about how the Time Lord’s came about. None of that stuff mattered. We accepted the fact that the Doctor existed, that his police box thingy could go anywhere and any when, and his attractive female companions have a talent for getting into trouble. I don’t understand why they had to complicate things.

      Three main reasons:
      1)In our self-obsessed society, the main character(s) has to be at the centre of everything so that those who identify with him/her can feel THEY are at the centre of everything: which gets us insane Origin Stories (“Doctor, you’re not just a Time Lord, you’re the reason for all Time Lords), villains obsessing over the hero (“Darth Vader, even though we have killed thousands of Jedi in the past, this Luke Skywalker is so powerful he may actually destroy us”) and endless speeches on the hero’s importance (“Harry, unless you defeat Voldemort literally no one else can, your Love is just that enormous”).
      2)The more these eternal franchises go on, the more difficult it becomes to do something genuinely new with them, so you either end them and come up with something new, or you start going into territories that were unexplored for a reason.
      3)The Eternal Search for the Twist – that is: “I know my story sucks, but if I put Something Big in it, everybody will be talking about it for the next two weeks before forgetting it altogether.” Which brings us to the Timeless Child, RoboLuke in Mandalorian, Subverting Expectations in general and every Marvel Cameo ever.

    IF I was in charge next; I would start with The Doctor waking up in his TARDIS, and just saying “wow, that was a weird dream” and just erasing everything from the JW error.

      My thoughts exactly. A few fevered shots of the Jodieverse and the Doctor wakes up. And we all breath a sigh of relief.

      I never thought I’d be happy to see them pull a Bobby Ewing.

    If this actually happens, I’ll have to apologize with the Dark Herald: until now, I had maintained that, while Chibnall is a Gamma, his heart hasn’t really been in this project, and the Wokeness was a BBC mandate more than anything, albeit one he was okay with. This thing, though, shows Chibnall to be capable of a Gamma Rage that makes John Scalzi appear virile.
    “The Doctor is his offspring, but she chose a different path”
    “That’s not true! That’s impossible!” “Search your feelings, you know it to be true.” “Feelings? Just because I’m a woman now? That’s sexist!”
    “Chibnall is fighting to have Jodie Whitaker die without revealing who the new Who will be.”
    And the Eternal Search for the Twist goes on and on…

    I see that I missed out on a lot of anger at Chinballs by stopping watching after the Rosa Parks episode. Better for my blood pressure.

    It all seems a bit same-same and 1980s and unoriginal, hasn´t the Davos thing been done already? along with everything else! This story seems like a straight rip off from one, or various, 80´s UK comic book storie/s (probably not 2000AD but same size as the mini battle booklet, B/W cheep paper but glossy colour cover, space themed for those in UK).

    Anyway at this point RTD will just go “I pity you fool and your lack of lack of genre savvy, timey-wimey this” and not even redo Tennants death and retcon everything after that away. No need because it was all still within the trickster dream, Rose only thought she had woken up but instead was still in the nightmare. Aging slowly with the Doctor, who of course wakes up.

    Everything stays canon and Chimpboy gets JR´d.

    It all has the feel of Marvel and DC comics for decades past – retconning, connecting up things that were never created that way, explaining things that never needed explanation before, fixing so-called errors of continuity; taking one-off bits from old stories and blowing them up into the foundations of what passes for new. It’s decadent, in the literal sense of the word. And it’s hyped up as the biggest, most universe-shaking event of all. You just know that Fat Black Female Doctor will turn out to be the most badass powerful Doctor ever.

    How can anyone be at all surprised that Chibnall would continue his destruction of ‘Doctor Who’. What kind of a sick, twisted and immoral mind would even contemplate coming up with ‘the Timeless Child’ ?
    ‘Doctor Who’ is dead and Davies (himself a harbinger of woke) isn’t saving anything in fact I bet he has Kathleen Kennedy and Alex Kurtzman on speed-dial.
