Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

I have no trouble at all with the doctor using the screwdriver to open doors, or indeed screw/unscrew screws.

It's when he starts using it to do all sorts of magical shit that things get a bit silly. There was a bit of this in the old series. There are great whopping boatloads of it in the new one - though things seemed to have calmed down a bit since the Tennant era.

Though as has been pointed out before, Moffat was a big culprit for that, mending barbed wire etc etc.

Oh I dunno, the SS is more obviously a tricorder stu;e device now, plus after he used it to disable all those silurian guns surely he can do that whoever he's up against now?

I seem to recall that it wouldn't do the lock on an old wood door in City of Death (though I could be wrong). That rule changed for Tooth and Claw.

Surely a tricorder was merely used for scanning things.

Also, bloody Chibnall

Changed back for "Silence in the Library" and "Vampires In Venice" where it couldn't break through large wood bolts.

I have less problem with opening doors then locking them, sometimes the key in the door is just easier!
One of my favorite gags in Smith and Jones was after the Doctor burned out his screwdriver, he and Martha flee into a room, the Doctor turns back to the door. The camera cuts to a closeup of the lock, and it's simply the Doctor's hand turning the knob on the lock. But the closeup is exactly the thing the show would do if he still had his screwdriver! It really emphasized the sense of "This will have to do."

Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

I wrote the Satan Pit review notes a while back, but struggling to put them into a decent review. Then I kind of left it a bit too long. Rest assured though, I've not forgotten. I've got quite a few real life problems at the moment, but I promise I'll get to it soon.

Sorry to hear you've got some problems--hope you get 'em licked and get back on track with the reviews.

Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

It's all in the pipeline, I promise. I've not just been put off by the looming threat of Love & Monsters followed by Fear Her. With any luck, I should have Satan Pit within the next week or so.

To be honest, I'm more looking forward to your viewing, then reviewing, Love & Monsters and Fear Her.

Re: A Hater Revisits nuWho

Yeah, I would say skip to the "good" stuff. After L&M and Fear Her, finish the season out. Then, just go straight to Matt Smith. Seriously. I'd rather read your reviews on the current stuff than RTD and Tennant. I'm sick of them, all over.
