Discussion in 'Doctor Who' started by Allyn Gibson, Jun 13, 2013.
Haven't checked this out. Thanks for the share!
Rather extreme, isn't that?
Not by GB standards. Anything that might get contentious is locked down right quick. They banned even generic discussion of file-sharing when a few copies of the series 7.2 DVDs were accidentally released early.
The missing episodes thread at Outpost Skaro is also closed, apparently.
Is it me, or are Doctor Who fans a tad over-reacting?
Tom Spilsbury and Jan Vincent-Rudzki's comments have been deleted from Levine's Facebook post. Pity there are already transcripts everywhere...
There's also a playlist with the 2 missing episodes of The Moonbase done in the same style, hosted by the same person:
Episode 1 The Moonbase (Youtube)
Episode 3 The Moonbase (Youtube)
And the rumors thread at the Missing Episodes Forum has been locked as well. Which will be the next to fall?
If the press conference isn't until Thursday, it seems awfully premature to lock the fora, unless the reason has nothing to do with the missing episodes themselves but with something like the Levine/Spilsbury conversation instead and the hope is that by shutting down the fora that conversation will fall down the memory hole.
If you tried to tell fans of other shows that DW's main channels of discussion regularly stop people talking about anything actually interesting they wouldn't believe you.
I don't know if it's still the case but OG/GB had a spoiler section that would delete big genuine spoilers and ban the people who posted them!
Still the case.
There's a story going round that a bunch of the most reliable spoiler sources were given temporary bans at GB earlier this year, starting around the time "The Day of the Doctor" filmed and ending late enough that spoilers would be inevitable by then regardless. No idea if it's true (the resentment about GB in some quarters is as paranoid as GB's own policies), but I wouldn't be at all surprised.
Gallifrey Base is the North Korea of Doctor Who fandom.
This thread is now the only place left on the internet...
Annnnnndddddd.... LOCK Sorry....Couldn't resist
I'm not sure why they're all being locked. I mean, if it's just speculation what's the harm? Do they think someone will pop on and blow the (hypothetical) embargo?
Until there's an announcement all anyone can do is speculate.
If it is Enemy of the World and Web of Fear, is there anyone left of the major cast besides the companions? Bill Kerr ("Giles Kent") from Enemy is still alive but people like Nick Courtney from Web are dead.
John Levene played a Yeti in Web.
It's what they do.
Am I the only one who gets a tad embarrassed by Doctor Who Online Fandom? The only place I come to discuss Who is here, because TrekBBS (well, at least this bit of it) is so very civilised. GallifreyBase is completely laughable. I do follow Blogtorwho and DWO on Twitter because they usually know the best gossip first, but the main Doctor Who forums are just horrible.
Doctor Who fans say new old episodes not as good as old old episodes...
I've never thought GB is that bad but then I don't tend to go on the new series threads. The classic series/books/dvds/audios/conventions stuff is all pretty reasonable, no worse than here.
I think sometimes all single interest boards can go a bit OTT as the most obsessional fans tend to hang around them more than they will somwhere like here or Digital Spy. I'm a big tennis fan and the two main tennis forums can be just as bad in terms of back biting and abuse as any other fandom at its worst.
