The Girl Who Died

Post by tony ingram on Sat Oct 17, 2015 9:14 pm

Well, what did you think? I thought it was by turns funny and dramatic, and I really liked the fact that the Doctor got in the "reverse the polarity of the neutron flow" line.

But I think he's just made a terrible mistake in saving the little viking girl.

Very good poll. You win the internet Very Happy

Of course saving Ashildr was a terrible mistake... but nobody would watch an episode entitled 'Doctor Who Drinks A Cup Of Camomile Tea' Very Happy

I don't know, I hope not. I'm glad we found out why he wears this face, and I hope it's Davies's theory, and I think it's a good reason. I'm pretty tired of people saying "we can't save this person/those people, it might change things...". Well, so what? Other than that popular serial fiction wants most things to stay the same why is keeping things as they are more important than saving people? Isn't that what The Doctor does?
Honestly, I think the whole "fixed point" thing is just a crutch for the writers, so they don't have to think through changes and deal with them down the line.

Well, maybe. But I suspect if the Doctor really did significantly change history all the time, his life would quickly become very confusing, and so would everyone else's. I loved my old Nan very much, but I wouldn't fancy waking up tomorrow to find her alive again and living in my spare room after Jon Pertwee saved her life in 1989, particularly since I don't have a spare room.

Sure, so I can see why the don't do it, fiction-wise, but it should be recognized that he CAN do it.

Maybe you DO, you just can't see it.

She could sleep on a camp bed in the office? Or in the conservatory? If Jon Pertwee and Jo Grant are going to go to all the trouble of saving her life, the very least you can do is to give her somewhere to bunk down.

Well, it's not as if the TARDIS doesn't have the room.

Why? I trust the late Mr. Pertwee implicitly.

Now, if it was Tennant we were talking about...

True. She'd have given him a clip 'round the ear and told him to bugger off.

My favourite Doctor is Capaldi. However, I don't sound Scottish.

I think he may have an unfair advantage there, though...

I don't know that it's unfair, he can't help where he was born!
