General of Dokar's Soy-Slaying Anti-Lego Regiment
True & Honest Fan
I'm not the least bit surprised. It was quite clear from the get-go that a lot of the worst that came from the Doctor this time around was not something Chinball did alone. The corporate suits clearly made/allowed this in a crazy attempt to widen the appeal of the show to a wider audience by making it more suitable for the current year, yet all they did was alienate their current and faithful audience with this farce.View attachment 1177138
So The BCC has already addressed everyone's complaints about this retcon:
"What was written does not alter the flow of stories from William Hartnell's brilliant Doctor onwards."www.doctorwhotv.co.uk
... and to the surprise of no one they are doubling down by pretending it doesn't break canon but just "adds layers and possibilities" to the story and that a lot of people liked it (twitter SJWs that don't care about the show obviously).
I've said this before and I will say it again. Chibnall is an idiot but he didn't do this alone. Just look at the fact that the BBC is covering his ass.
They'll never admit they are wrong. They will take this mistake to their graves. No one here is ever likely to see a retcon within their lifetimes as any attempt would cause controversy by labeling any kind of retcon as racist and sexist, thus giving it a politically-fueled forcefield. So at best, this shit may get retconned once every single fucker who supported this and those who will support their ideals are out of the BBC, and that doesn't look like its going to happen anytime soon unless the BBC suffers some sort of major financial blow that makes them incredibly desperate, but the chance of them hitting rock bottom seems even less likely. There might be future directors who may try to fix this, but BBC is faithful to Chinball's ideals and they won't let his ideas die for his ideals align with their own socio-political motivations.
I know that feel.Chibnall not just fucked the entire tv series, he fucked all the drama cds,fucked the comics and books, he fucked EVERYTHING to hell and back the only thing that could save him by now is that the admission that the doctor is the timeless child was leave vague at best so a retcon-retcon could happen because this is a mess but we know is not going to happen
Disney was fucking the past as much as Chibnall is doing to Who since day fucking 1, especially when they released this travesty and crime against literature.I mean, as bad as Last Jedi was, it didn't destroy the past.
Their shitty nu-trilogy just reset shit back to square one and undid everything all past SW media ever accomplished and completely nullified the victories of the heroes for the sake of glorifying new asshole characters. Rey is essentially the Timeless Child of her franchise, taking away the titles, purpose and accomplishments of all the heroes that existed just so Kennedy, JJ, Rian and the rest of Disney's clown car could show just how much "better" their awful replacement characters were.
It makes me sick to my stomach to see another beloved franchise fall into the same rotter. Sure there were flaws or corruptions in recent years, especially with the 12th, but they were stupid and small enough that they could be mended over time or rendered into apocrypha or non-canonicity. What they've done now is too big to ignore.
Thanks for nothing Chinballs.
