Doctor Who: Season 6 Spoiler Thread

Still use spoiler tags though, its more fun (January 2010)

Well said, Moff.

People who publish spoilers are those who lack the skills to write decent stories themselves. Its like talent-by-proxy.

Vicarious screenwriting.

I'm glad he didn't mince his words on the subject.

Fans? But these leaks come from press preview screenings. Your average fan doesn't get to go to those. Still, Moff does have a point, I don't mind, say, knowing that the Daleks are back in a particular episode, but spoiling every scene is not on.

What annoyed me most about the latest episode (which overall I thought was pretty good, with Lily Cole being a good bit of casting) was that Rory not only told Amy to resuscitate him like they do in films (which is more-often-than-not a very bad way to do it), but also told her that she was choosing her over the Doctor before she'd never give up on him - which she then promptly did after thirty seconds!

From the article though:

Quote:
Before the current series began, a fan posted the entire plot of the first two episodes on an internet forum.

They were among a number of fans who were invited to a press screening, at which the production team asked people not to give away spoilers.

Moff said that the press had obeyed the request not to spoil, and it was specifically "fans" who published the stories in their entirety, "in the worst, ham fisted style of writing possible".

He went on to say, "I wish they would go be and be fans of something else".

While I 100% agree with Moffat that we don't want things spoiled (yes, I know I shouldn't even be reading this thread), I'm not sure that they've got the balance right in terms of advance screenings and review copies of episodes.

They did a big screening and (unlike at the beginning of series 4 when Rose's appearance was deliberately cut to be a surprise on broadcast) showed the whole first 1 (or possibly 2) episode(s).

There do seem to be review copies turning up more than there used to be. I see several comments on Twitter and my rss feeds about people having such copies (fortunately, the ones I see are the ones who say nothing or do 'spoiler-free reviews).

From new Who, I think that tonight's episode may have been my favourite. I really enjoyed it, and thought that the arguments between the Doctor and were excellent, and very witty. Loved seeing
the old, Eccleston/Tennant era TARDIS
, but thought it was a shame that it was there for so little time. Overall, an excellent episode, my favourite since Eccleston took up the role, even?

Over-hyped episode tonight. It may have been written by a great sci-fi author, but it didn't really amount to much. And that ridiculous line about the TARDIS door opening the wrong way (covered again by Gaiman in Confidential) - it's the hatch for the phone you pull open - not the door itself.

While I'd agree that the sign is pretty obviously referring to the phone hatch (as seen in The Empty Child), real police box doors did open outward, so at least that bit was right.

I thought it was a pretty good episode, and a nice new bit of Who lore - and I thought House (Michael Sheen) was particularly creepy, mostly because it was acted so straight.

Did we really need to see that? It was just a bit horrible...
