Doctor Who - The Company of Friends

The Benny & Fitz stories are both rather mediocre, though the latter was amusingly frivilous.

Mary’s story absolutely makes up for it, though. The writing is leagues above the rest of the collection as one would expect from Jonathan Morris. Point off for the final line though.

But Izzy’s story? The one I was actually looking forward to? Oh, it started out so well, and when I realised it was poking loving fun at 2000AD, oh I thought we were going to get something truly off-beatly amusing in the style of some of the World annuals. Put the fucking punchline?

Such. Fucking. Bullshit.

I felt totally betrayed by how Izzy reacted during the denoument and I don’t give a flying fuck if it was her creator who wrote it or of it was intended to show how in the closet she was, it was just plain throw-it-against-the-wall-in-disgust wrong.

perpugilliam, and anyone else who’s familiar with Izzy, what did you think?

It’s like Tom was completely out of it and they just put him in costume and told him to stand there while they took pictures.

…is that his coat? The one from this picture?

He’s not exactly wrong, though. Sure the Doctor would have pretty much keeled over regardless of what adventure came after The Smugglers, the Cybermen were still effectively the straw that did it.

A little while ago I came across this image of a Doctor Who companions / The Avengers genderflip mashup 

and was struck by how — to me anyway — the creator got almost all of them wrong.
Clara/Captain America. This is the only point of agreement. Clara is the companion lost in time defending her great cause.
Amy/Director Fury. The eyepatch was an obvious starting off point for me whereas I suspect the original went for a colour match. Amy is very much large and in charge — remember who was running the war against the Silence in the paradox reality — routinely electing to ignore what she considers stupid-ass decisions.
Rose/Iron Man. Both characters are startingly self-centered when we first meet them but undergo a process of change that opens their eyes to a wider world of other people. They still think they’re the bee’s knees, though.
Martha/Hawkeye. Consistantly underrated against their more popular compatriots, and put through absolute hell by the big bad, yet when they bring their A-game they can wipe the floor with the best of them.
Rory/Black Widow. Gods and monsters think they have the measure of these two yet they’ll do the impossible to safeguard the ones they care about.
River/The Hulk. Good people turned into terrible monsters who ultimately learn to embrace that darkness for the greater good.
Donna/Thor. They both get angry, but their definining quality is a self-righteous nature that learns humility and the service of others. They achieve great nobility but have a great and inevitable doom held over them.
Mickey/Agent Hill. The retainer (some would say the Tin Dog) who seems set up to fail only to reveal hidden depths.
Jack/Agent Coulson. The man who won’t die. While not a genderflip, I think his pansexuality kinda squeaks him through.

silvanoir said: Do I want Moffat involved? no. God no. Do I want the series made? YES. Big yes.

And thus stands the great problem otherwise known as “This is why we can’t have nice things”. Because the people in charge are the very same people who will fuck it up so bad that having it from them is likely worse than not having it at all.

For me at least given the best case scenario is that it’s inevitably going to have be remediated via fanon, I’d rather just cut out the pain and go straight to that.

*sigh*

#I will always wonder what happened to Jenny

still wonder what happened to Jenny

Twelve needs to run into Jenny

People keep asking for a female Doctor Who… and she was literally the daughter of the doctor.  And only got one episode.  The could have built a whole series around her.  Or at least a mini-series.  Why didn’t they?

Is that really a series you want Moffat to have any involvement with?
