@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

I laughed and laughed when Graham talked about how great Yasmin was.


She's been a superfluous hanger-on in pretty much every episode you wrote Chibnall. Don’t pretend she matters now.


The new mythology seems really dull.

I like the mythology but it was seems poorly executed or not fully explored enough. Like that episode with Rosa Parks where you have a time traveller that wants to change history but can't kill anyone. Resulting in some clever ideas to change history and inventive ways to stop him. But the problem being his whole motivation of just being a super racist and nothing deeper then that.

Finally got around to getting the last three episodes watched. Honestly, I liked it enough. Most of this is stuff that has been seeded through the entire series run, stuff various Show runners have alluded to since the 70's in some form or another. And honestly at this point, there is still more then enough wiggle room to pilot a Cyberking through for future writers to either change or expand on the whole thing. Regardless, I do feel this was a much better season then last; and we've finally started to see Jodie feel like the doctor.

I'm am use to Doctor Who not sticking to any type world building. Each episode they discovery a new alien race with new technology that runs off a new type of energy. Next episode the Doctor will detect "tulocan" energy waves and the episode after that it will be "hydalan" energy waves. A lot of it is just throw away techno babble.

After having a bit of time to "calm down", as it were...there are places you can go with this set up. I'll admit after Gallifrey was restored the show kind of found itself in a well worn sort of rut when prior to Gallifrey's return the show got to be a bit daring at times. Plus, as I said before, the Doctor being Last of the Time Lords rather than just a Time Lord was kind of a big deal to the character.


Though I am going to be ticked off to no end if this doesn't ultimately culminate in a team-up episode with McCoy. It honestly feels like Seven needs to be part of this journey of self-discovery the Doctor finds herself on.

I would definitely like to see a teamup like this. Has McCoy said anything recently about whether he would guest star on the programme if asked?

I really can't say I like it.

I mean really it would have made a lot more sense if The Master had been the timeless child instead. It would explain why he wanted to destroy Gallifrey. It would explain his insanity due to the experiments. It would explain why hes never actually perma died despite the many many times it should have been the last of him.


Making it the doctor is just.. boring. It also kinda cheapens earlier stories like River giving up her regenerations to save 11. It makes.. the time lords having to gift 11 more regens make zero sense.. like how did that even work there, they just remote triggered his regeneration I guess?


It doesn't really make sense. It ruins earlier moments. It also messes up canon severely just to try and fix what? some anomalous bit of information from 44 years ago? It doesn't even lead to anything of real worth or excitement either. How the BBC signed off on this is a mystery.

I like the idea of the Master being the timeless child but lets consider the story is called the timeless children implying more and think about how he acted in this story, it's quite possible he is the timeless child and he knows it and only did this to the Doctor to create self doubt, I don't think this story is quite done yet, Chinball has got another season.


It'd be a twist if the Rassilon and Omega were connected to the Doctor in the way the Valeyard and watcher were.


When you think about how the seventh Doctor acted, it makes you wonder if he knew. He may have picked up a few clues or he may have had all the information available for that regeneration.

I once read they planned to have the Master accuse the Doctor of being more than a time lord in Survival too

I think this is where you get with Doctor Who now being event television. RTD had it easy, he just had to slowly bring back popular baddies. Moffat had to create new stuff and do something big for the anniversary.

I'm not really a fan of The Other plotline. I think it's enough to make the Doctor a prodigy, a product of Gallifreyan society who chose a different path. Making the Doctor the mysterious starting point of all Time Lords feels like Chibnall was just way too eager to make pre 2005 fan theories canon.

I'm not really sure how the memories show that the Doctor is the Timeless Child, or connect the two in anyway.


Sure the Master says their the same person, but what's he basing this one?

Yeah, there's lots of ways to retcon this shit out of all existence, but it doesn't really matter, it's done, it's what was intended, and any retcon will always get accused of 'done to placate the haters', even if it's Chibnall himself in the next episode.

Retcon sound too malicious. Just give the story to writers not familiar with the deeper lore and watch these problems magically disappear.

I would like to think of it as time in a constant flux. Every time the Doctor stops an alien race from destroying the Earth he changes the time line. So nothing got retconned, it just happened in alternative time line.

I don't see any future changes as a retcon. No matter how knowledgeable the next team is to lore. The Master is a notorious unreliable narator. We literal have a giant plot hole given to us; with that whole redacted area of the Matrix, as well as the fact there is no real proof in this episode other then 'The Master said so' and 'The Doctor is fine with it, if its true'.

As I said previously there is room enough to do anything with this episode. Explore it furter or deny it completely because there is as much evidence for it as there is against it, imo.

RTD put up an earlier draft for the end of the Time War. Allegedly prepared during the lead-up to the 50th anniversary, but ended up unused for the expected reason.

The Doctor realizes that her timeline has been contaminated by some force that will lead to (insert disaster bad thing). The only way to avoid it is to destroy centuries of her life, going back to before she was infected. To do that, she prevents the Master's wife from contaminating his resurrection, thus changing the outcome of the Specials years. She then thwarts the idiotic plot of the PM and whatnot that brought the Master back. Before she fades away, she warns The Master about his plan falling apart, and hands him the key to the TARDIS and a 2 minute head start. The Master flees.

The Doctor Fades away slowly.

10th Doctor arrives on Earth, finds the situation sorted, and goes on to more adventures. All of the 11th, 12th, and 13th's timelines are completely erased.

Scrapped, tossed, and redone.


Ideally, David Tenant returns for several seasons, or just one season, or at least one special so he can go out on a GOOD story. Invite Matt Smith and Capaldi back in turn, but give them actually good, well written stories.


A similar story was implied in Big Finish's story Colditz, in which 7th realizes he was set up by his future self after a disaster that would have lead to Ace's death and Nazi Germany winning WWII.

...that just seems terribly cruel.
