The "federation" of hasn't brought about the Fedipocalypse, has it?

@peteriskrisjanis As long as we cannot properly have a conversation with someone on Threads, this all remains rather uninteresting. But even then I would guess the different conversation styles and cultures would irritate Threads users. It's just very different if you are "here" on the Fedi, with your interface. You will treat everyone as if they were also "here". While Threads people, with a weird mix of Twitter/Insta culture, would scratch their heads about those weirdos with binocles.

@kagan There is no EEE „campaign“. That’s just hyperbole.

Talking about things like Doctor Who on the Fedi is really nice. The entire performative absurdity of Twitter is totally absent. As if only grown-ups are here (or grown-ups who can remain grown-up when talking about their fandom).

@GreyAreaUK I mean the drama hissy fits that some people throw on Twitter and then you have camps and you have to say to which you belong etc. This is child's play and I'm happy that I haven't encountered that on the Fedi.

We've seen four episodes now of the "new new" and RTD's take/vision of this era and I have to say, with the exception of , I remain very much on the fence. It's too "magical" for my liking, it doesn't do a lot of sci-fi stuff or concepts. And it has the usual silliness dialed to 11 (or 12), all amplified by RTD's sledgehammer writing style. It's somewhat ok and at times interesting, even charming, but overall I still don't know if it's for me. Which is fine.

@peteriskrisjanis If it still allows more sci-fi heavy episodes like Boom, I'm alright with it. And I do hope that we get more writer diversity, RTD's style is just a bit much for me (I'm dreading the finale already, which will probably suck for me).

@aoanla @peteriskrisjanis

RTD often does that: creates tensions and obstacles to create character drama and interaction, and that's what interests him. And once that's done he just winks away the obstacles somehow because the episode needs to end.

Just was reminded about this little fact that Steven Moffat has written stories for more Doctors than any other writer in history. And it's not a stretch to argue that he gave everyone of them their best episode as well.

I truly wish that Moffat would've written one episode for Jodie Whittaker as , where she could've played to her strengths. Man, this might've made all the difference.

Why I enjoyed Ncuti Gatwa's portrayal of almost from the start, it was that really "clicked" him into character for me. Brilliant lines (by Steven Moffat) and fantastic line delivery, love this man.

@oomoepoo The Engadget review subtitle is "Steven Moffat returns to show us how it’s done." 🤩

in a nutshell: Don't even move. Move and you're dead. The landmines explode fast, faster than you could believe. Don't stretch your back, don't step away, and don't move!

The more I think about the first two episodes of season 1 of , the more whelmed I am. It’s ok but it’s not yet really clicking with me.

@lordmatt I'm super looking forward to the next episode, "Boom", by Moffat. This promises to be a really good one!

This is a greally great and insightful interview with about under RTD. The show is planned and shot a year head. We will never face the same situation with Chibnall again any time soon. So good news!

@greenback The production team of the finale didn't know if the show would continue while shooting the episode.

@jynersolives@mastodon.social avatar

Now I watched and... well that was an hour of television. In some respect that worked better than , in others it... didn't, at least for me. Gatwa brings a lot to and there's enough mystery around Ruby to keep me watching. But let's just say that I'm really glad the next episode is written by .

@mrsjmccrimmon Space Babies = great themes but somehow actors are not clicking for me (and the babies are too silly)
Devil's Chord = confused themes and plotting but the actors clicked and created great tension.

This new era is rather uneven in its beginning... BUT: if you watch Boom you might feel this is it. Moffat has written some FANTASTIC lines for Gatwa and Gibson, and both themes and actors are good to great in it. It's the first "classic" of this era.
