Discussion in 'Doctor Who' started by StCoop, Sep 11, 2020.
Jodie Whittaker was on the Graham Norton Show last night and also used the term "six hour movie."
Saw this on another board. This made me laugh
Every time I see anything about this, I automatically think: "Dr Who: The Flux". They might have wanted to consider the name a bit more carefully.....
As someone who studied physics in college, the negative connotation some people keep arriving on regarding that title is the last thing I think of because flux is a real and important property in physics and that's obviously what the show is alluding towards. I think people leaping to the negative connation instead of the obvious intention is more commentary on the people who make that connection than the title itself.
It's a good trailer anyway. I'm suitably excited. Squee.
There's that but I've never even heard the negative usage of the term before this thread so it's easy to, ahem, poo poo this but I can see where that could be hard to shake depending on the familiarity of the term. Looking at the dictionary that definition is listed first so it must be a thing.
You must have found Back To The Future very confusing then.
Outside of this thread I've never seen anyone use or understand the word to mean anything other than 'change'.
Try being a historian and see how often you see references to "the bloody flux" and even the cookbooks are filled with recommended "cures" (which I certainly would recommend against trying!) for the flux... You'll soon be familiar with it.
It means my lifelong love of Doctor Who lead to me reading more history stuff and literature than science and physics, when push came to shove.
So I even get to titter at Flux Capacitor.
I must have been looking the other way because at the grand old age of 51 I've never encountered the work flux used in that context!
When I hear “flux” I think of welding…or Birmingham’s old Sci-fi ‘zine IN FLUX….or Baxter’s work…
I tried to get cheeky and advanced the DVR guide to 10/31 but BBCA has the whole day marked TBA even though 11/1 is not.
I don't know if it means anything but Futon Critic says the season 13 premiere will be on BBC America at 8:00 on the 31st.
I was hoping to maybe get a glimpse of title or plot if they were careless. I wonder if maybe they’ll show live with UK in the afternoon but they haven’t done that in a while so the 8 PM is probably right.
So, as it turns out, you're wrong about this. The episodes do in fact have individual titles, the premiere being The Halloween Apocalypse.
Like I said...so shocking.
Yes, I was wrong in my interpretation of the evidence we had in front of us.
My being wrong isn't a negative, though.
2:25PM EST on BBC America (as well later at 8) so plenty of time to watch and then get ready for trick or treat.
Damn, I just realized I'm going to be busy setting up for that week's local election, so I'm going to be late in watching the episode.
The things I sacrifice for democracy!
In all honesty, the way my life is here lately, I suspect the majority of this season I'm going to be DVRing the episodes and watching them on Monday.
