Fully human, no? Parents: Amy and Rory. Unless that whole "conceived within the timestream" thing was a cover story for the Doctor secretly banging Amy which seems the most likely explanation in the cynical normal universe but not quite Doctor Who :)
Well is she full human if she can regenerate, maybe half human and mothers and father side and the other half from time stream or something like that , but thinking back it never made sense that she could regenerate just because she was conceived in tardis.
I liked how the new series emphasised this idea that time travel didn't just cause a change in mentality, but physically as well; the Artron energy seeping into people. In fact IIRC, the old 8th Doctor range of books had a character who was, literally, a walking TARDIS. Was part of some large, rambling arc (as those books often had) featuring a divergent Doctor, corrupted during the 3rd regeneration by that eventual divergent 8th incarnation. Surprised the new series never played with that idea...
FYI: the VR game The Edge of Time is making its way to Consoles as a non-VR version title Edge of Reality. "Reality" doesn't have much of a trailer, but there's a greater sense of the game from the trailer for the VR game...
Yeah was mentioned in the specific Season thread; bummed out about Whittaker leaving, her scripts never really gave her much of a chance to shine TBH.
That's all fine and dandy, but I think the BBC see Doc as too much of a cash cow to risk tampering with - or indeed, going on a hiatus. With Top Gear gone it's arguably the station's biggest global brand and while the show isn't near a viral hit as that David Tenant heyday - it's big enough that the executives wouldn't touch it too much.
"Consciously aped Buffy"? Okay there was a blonde girl hanging around with a guy who looked human but wasn't and was more than a century old but that's kind of it really.
New showrunner please.
Holy shít a thousand times yes. Is he serious? I guess so if he's name dropping his agency. That'd be amazing, even if a non Brit in charge would probably be a no-no.
He must definitely have a proposal for them.
It's crazy thought that someone of his standing has to ask on Twitter what the structure of the BBC is when it comes to Doctor Who, I know the ownership of it is complicated and the BBC did lose ownership of it in the 80's for a bit Russell T Davies stated that when he wanted to reboot Doctor who in the 90's.
I'm guess the tweet is also a bit of testing the waters to see what responses will be gotten from it.
I wouldn't be adverse to him taking over - he knows how to tell a story, B5 was a great show
Are the tweets clues to the fact he already has the job - weird to put something like that out there, he surely must have connections
I dunno, I could see the BBC being the type of station that's very insular and operated on a "who you know" basis. That's pure tongue wagging from me mind, I've no justification for that beyond feelings.
The main problem against Straczynski is his nationality: like Bond, Who feels like a protected English/British brand the natives wouldn't like touched by a foreigner - let alone a Yank. My main worry would simply be he wouldn't be given the latitude to express his ideas. And he obviously has some if he's fishing this publicly
Reading his Twitter timeline over night he say straight out he is putting his hat in the ring for it and understands the nationality stuff might cause some pushback.
A bit disappointed, Hoping what the BBC has falls through.
