Comments on: "Extra! – AVA, the Sevens Edition" (3)

  1. Thank you, Erika, Liz, Lynne and Deb, those were brilliant answers!

    I was thrilled about John Simm’s casting from the start, even though it was spoiled when the BBC announced it early because some gossipy rag was threatening to publish it. But I was still unaware that Mr. Razor was the Master! When Murray Gold’s music cue started telling me IT’S HIM, I finally caught on.

    The visual of Liz perched on the chair is indeed unforgettable.
    The image of Liz’s nose six inches from the screen is equally mesmerizing. It reminds me of me when I was watching Listen, or series 11’s frog. And I too have perched on furniture during several intense Doctor Who moments.

    Casting trepidation is something I recognize too. I was a bit miffed when both Kylie Minogue and Catherine Tate doing an entire series were announced in the same week. They were fine!

    I will also never forget that 8th Doctor moment! I was doing some writing at my local pub and went on Twitter to check out what the new Doctor Who thing was that the BBC were going on about. Gasp!

    And Bradley Walsh, who seemed an odd choice (because I hadn’t seen him act), was a revelation.

    Thanks, Verity!

  2. Team Janelle Monáe all the way. Janelle Monáe in ALL THE THINGS.

    Re: what episodes one might want to lose so others could be found, I don’t object to tossing out “Pyramid at the End of the World,” because it’s really not great, but instead of getting rid of either “Oxygen” or “Extremis,” I’d choose “Lie of the Land.” Honestly, I think that Toby Whithouse messed up that episode so badly (and Steven Moffat was too distracted by his mother’s last illness and death to fix it), that what it has going for it is the acting from Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, and Michelle Gomez (and how good they all looked). But uggh, that writing! It still makes me furious that the Doctor and Nardole would consider it anywhere near appropriate to test Bill by goading her into thinking she was shooting the Doctor, or that the Doctor would pretend to regenerate, or that everyone would laugh at Bill for having taken the situation seriously. I still can’t get over what f**ked-up gaslighting that all was.
