Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

Having met Ben Cook, he seems to me like a character straight out of Nathan Barley.

I'll leave it at that.

I have no idea what that means. Who is Nathan?

Tom Spilsbury sucks Moffat off as much as Ben Cook sucked RTD off. There's no way he''d be privy to any kind of interview that would put Moffat in a bad light.
I know. Which is why I made the suggestion. It's not a serious suggestion. It would be entirely to tweak Spilsbury.

Frankly, I live for the day that David Yates' movie gets off the ground and Spilsbury and his publication discover they don't have the same access to a Hollywood production that they have to Cardiff.

Reminds me of Morden being dragged away in B5 and screaming about how Centauri Prime will pay the price for what its done.

As for Caroline Skinner, she should remember the immortal words of the Psychotherapist:

Now it is time to see how you got yelled at. Remember that firing is not the end... but only a transition.

A Chris Morris satire.

I don't want a Hollywood production, especially as it'd mean we get less episodes and an even bigger gap between series. Doctor Who has just the right budget to tell imaginative stories while still being cheap enough to be interesting and take risks.

The Yates movie most likely won't be connected to or use the actors from the TV series. So it shouldn't effect the current production quality at all.



Also...


Both made while the original show was in production.

I'd expect a Time War movie starring McGann but it'd likely be some Tennant and Piper squee bollocks to draw in the Twilight crowd.

This and the Private Eye article combined gives me the image of a drunk Moffat ranting over (and possibly urinating on) the grave of Peter Cushing, yelling, "YOU'RE ERASED FROM DOCTOR WHO TOO! NOW WHERE'S PAUL MCGANN?!?!"

I'm not prepared for the influx of Doctor Who youtube videos set to one of Adele's songs!

Moffat comes off like a three-year-old having a tantrum if that quote is accurate.
Well if you remember the way he acted on Twitter it seems pretty believable.
True that.

The Gallifrey Base mods are having fun with this Private Eye article, closing threads and deleting posts if there's any discussion of the final paragraph.
Indeed, looks like the possible discussion of Ugandan politics caused tension within the office.

More likely, tension at the office led to the discussion of the Ugandan situation to blow off some steam.

I do hope the next Producer they hire is a man with no interest in geopolitics.

Frankly the whole sorry mess has left me feeling quite tired and emotional.

After recent events at the Beeb, it could be worse - at least nobody's assisting Inspector Knacker. Though they might get a carpeting from the new Head Prefect.
