Ack Continuity!

Postby The Cloaked One on October 31st, 2010, 11:07 pm

I've only been watching Doctor Who since last November. I like the Classic Who as well as some of the Nu Who, but the books are really starting to confuse me. Mainly because I'm reading summaries of them and other indirect sources. Romana II returns from E-Space and becomes president of Gallifrey but at the same time is being influenced by the first female president of Gallifrey? The Doctor accidentally turned an alien (Compassion) into a functioning Tardis? My head is beginning to hurt at this point.
Only the television versions are really considered Cannon by BBC, that does help a bit. The novels make me feel like I'm swimming in unfamiliar territory.
Si-Fy and Fantasy, that is where my heart lies. To Doctor Who and its 18 years of brilliance, still waiting on the 50 yr anniversary!

Oh Baker, Baker, Mr. Tom, why did you term have to end.
The first, the second, the third, the fourth, all brilliant and quite witty.
Entertainment was first, the Doctor's smile while he mends,
the whoniverse was safer and much brighter when we had Mr. Baker.

The Fifth, oh dear, Mr. Davidson, oh dear.
Burning off a quarter of the Tardis, Watching poor Adric go down in flames,
and alas the Master too did burn. Not my doctor, I fear.
Handsome and awesome, is true, but not my doctor, I fear.

The sixth, oh goodness me, the anger is just too extreme.
Strangling Perry, never strangle a companion.
A stark turnaround in trial, I really did like that, it was supreme.
But alas, killed by falling over, too much 'Carrot Juice'

The Seventh, so much sterner and perhaps sinister,
Carrying a cane, he was a stronger Doctor.
He started relaying his past, but the show administer
had called an end. Sixteen years to wait.

The Eighth had an amazing total of 85 minutes
and a bunch of books. Can't say too much,
except, why was the Eye of Harmony in the Tardis?
Not until 2005 would Who come back, brand Nu.

The Ninth hates guns? Really, seriously?
Good actor, like the actor, but he looks like Al Bundy.
A good first season, high hopes for me.
A sad goodbye, and a brilliant last line.

The Tenth, do I hate, or do I like? Difficult to say.
Romance with Tyler, too much Harkness and
political points. The Universe is doomed almost every day,
just to be saved by a single switch, or button.

The Eleventh, for me, is most improved.
Lots of grandstanding, never hit a Dalek with a wrench,
and a Space Whale is not equal to all of Britain, I was not moved.
Still Moffat has talent, and Smith is new, good luck to them.

Where did the series go wrong where the first four had so right?
Too many answers for that question. I still thank Baker, Pertwee
Troughton, and Hartnell, they put up a spectacular fight.
18 years of Who I enjoy and shall always remember.

So it's 1 in the morning, I'm a bit tired and my poetry isn't exactly poetic. But yeah, I love old who.

Since I've managed a relatively obscure thread with no one else replying... XD
As of today, I'm currently making a Karmic Bet. Why is it Karmic? I don't know, it just sounds cool. I just posted six screen shots from my Doctor Who parody videos on Deviant Art. My account name is the same as it is here except with dashes between the words. I've never gotten around to posting them on youtube, but I'm going to go ahead and set myself up for a bet. If I win the bet, I'll post all my parodies and make three more to be posted along as well.
Well, enough for now. I'll say more once the bet has been set up. I'm terribly optimistic at times, but I don't want to spark any hopes until a few more factors have been settled.

Hey there the cloaked one,
I just looked at the screen shots and I'd like to see the videos.
I don't recall Tom being quite that young :D

I'm a bit scatter brained, and forgot to post back here for some time. XD Thanks Who dat, I got the parody up on DeviantArt. I haven't gotten it on youtube because of the hassle of getting my video to convert to an acceptable format. DeviantArt just simply takes the swf files. Hopefully in a while I'll have more content to put up. My account name on there is The-Cloaked-One.

While I've enjoyed most of the 'Missing/New' Adventure novels, they ended up creating their own little continuity (mostly because we had no idea of the miracle Russell Davies was going to perform and there was no Big Finish) and it got a bit weird and dark.
I liked most of the new companions. ( except Sam. She was so bland, she made Dodo and Adric look cool in comparison)
Enjoyable, but not to be considered cannon, in my opinion. Has to have been filmed to count. ( well, except for the Peter Cushing movies, but that's a whole new topic)

EXCELLENT poem, TheCloakedOne! AWARD-WINNING tribute to the first four Doctors and mentioning your thoughts on the rest was pure genius, too. I too believe things started to go downhill with the series after TB left, and though there was still some good things to be had, it just wasn't the same. With Matt Smith now in charge of the flying the TARDIS, things are looking up. I just don't know about River Song or Amy Pond. :lol:
