Towing the Earth

I mean, seriously, I can put up with a bit of technobabble, and stupid plot twists and over-the-top aliens and stupid coincidences because, you know, it’s Doctor Who, and that’s what you get, innit?

But please… towing the Earth?

Russel T Davies, my good man, you should just fuck the fuck off immediately.

Oh, he did? Did he really? Oh well that’s all fine then.

Carry on.

  1. It bothers me that the Doctor and the TARDIS can tow a rocket out of a black hole in “The Satan Pit”, and entire Earth in “Journey’s End,” but he doesn’t even think about a towing the Starship UK in “The Beast Below” if they release the Star Whale. What gives?

    • What bothers me is a great deal, as in, most of the episode. There was not a single moment in the finale where I went “oh yes, smart, I didn’t see that coming”. There were no clever solutions, no foreshadowed twists, just hand-waving and technobabble all the way. I really REALLY wish they found a way to destroy one of the other planets to break the pattern, for example. Everything was classic Davies – build up a fantastic hopeless situation and then proceed to bullshit your way out of it.

      I can forgive continuity errors, or blatant cheating on occasion, but not a whole mess just pulled out of somebody’s arse because they wanted a “cool” finale.

      Nice blog you have, by the way.

      And I do love the new Doctor, I must say. Tennant + Davies was not a happy combo.
