    So my brain actually dreamt up a complete episode of Doctor Who last nite. I hurried to write it down but I can only remember the first part now. Here it is as I remember it:


    There is a beautiful lush planet that had just fought a war and now a peace had been won. A ceremony to sign the treaty is taking place and the doctor and his companion land at the ceremony shortly before it begins. they attend the ceremony because the Doctor loves a good treaty and the end of war. This planet has a charming tradition where at the end of war, one of the young strong common soldiers is chosen to head the delegation to meet the losers at the treaty signing. But the Doctor notices something is wrong because the "victors" seem to have a mix of middle age and industrial technology and the delegates of the "losers" arrive in a highly advanced spaceship. Nobody else seems to think there is anything wrong.

    Out of the ship steps a tall, pale skinned women with fangs. She immediately drops the entire delegation into a trance (except the Doctor and his companion) and seduces the young soldier outright, who then follows her back into the ship. But she stops and senses a presence in the crowd. She hisses and races up to the doctor at lightning speed. The Doctor stares horrified for a moment into her eyes and then she seduces him as well. Both the doctor and the soldier obediently follow the vampire into the ship. The doctor's companion goes unnoticed and i determined fashion stows away in the ship.

    As it takes off, the crowd drops out of the trance and remembers only that the treaty signing will be next week and that they must finish preparing the place for the ceremony and they must select a young soldier to head the delegation.

    Then we see this amazing view of the ship flying through some gorgeous scenery of the lush tropical planet for a minute and then it enters some kind of plagued area where there is a stark difference and everything has withered and died as if something was draining the very life from the planet at that point. Off in the distance is a MASSIVE spaceship that has been damaged and lies half buried in the ground.



    I can't remember the exact details of everything after these events but the story is about how one of the Great Vampires arrived here after being hit by a bowship. It dragged the bowship here and that is what you see half buried in the ground. The Great Vampire mind controlled the world inhabitants to feed it blood to heal. There were more interesting twists but I've forgotten them unfortunately. At its core its a retelling of State of Decay but other things happen that I forgot.

    I would welcome Smith back with open arms, but I don't know that I would like the ramifications of what it would do to the lore of the show. I also don't really want Capaldi to go, just want Moffat to go.

    Not good. Not good at all.

    For two main reasons:
    A: I love Capaldi.m I think he's delivered a great performance only held back by some very lacklustre episodes. With a better show runner and no Clara I think he'll be awesome.
    B: Matt smith was a lot better than people give him credit for... I recently rewatched New Who on Netflix and his seasons were solid... As long as Amy way there. His arc and his doctor was SO tied to his relationship with the Ponds that it just doesn't work without them.

    If anyone was wondering (b/c I randomly wondered yesterday) Who has been put on Amazon Prime as an exclusive deal for at least the next few years. I was really wanting to start the new series over, but remembered it isn't on Netflix so I had to scrounge around. Luckily Prime offers monthly subs now and comes with free streaming music and kindle books, so it just kinda made sense for me. However, if people want to legitimately watch it as well, I believe you can get just the video service for less money.

    Isn't it on Netflix UK? Or did they remove it because of the deal with Crapazon Prime?

    Idk about UK, but I thought it was worldwide. And Prime video is better, but the layout and programming is so behind compared to the other streaming services. Even crunchyroll has a better setup.

    Apparently it's not in the UK. Thank the gods.


    Amazon Prime streaming is the fucking plague. I got it a while back, because I wanted to watch Vikings.

    Cancelled it within the 30 day free trial. Even though I have the absolute fastest fibre broadband available in the UK with a connection that has never let me down, Amazon refused to stream anything. Every time I tried it said I had insufficient bandwidth.

    Googled it, funnily enough it seems this bandwidth problem started right about the time the Firestick came out. Suddenly, for totally unrelated reasons, the app version of prime Video started having problems streaming...

    It would signal the end of the show and undermine all the work that has gone into keeping the show fresh and unique. It would be the lowest form of pandering to a few people that just can't let go, and feel that the show must conform to their wishes incapable of seeing the broader picture. It would be terrible.

    id love to see matt come back for a multi doctor episode though. it would be cool if we got those more often instead of just once in awhile when theres an anniversary.

    This is in line how I feel. Him coming back for anything besides him being the 11th doctor interacting with the current Doctor/characters would feel beyond idiotic to me. I loved Smith as the Doctor but that isn't a good excuse to bring him back full time. Although I think a season with 2 Doctors would certainly be intriguing, but that probabally is still stretching it.

    I think a season with Capaldi and Baker would be awesome. Baker would play the character from the Anniversary episode, and throughout the whole season they would keep it undisclosed whether he was a Time Lord or not. Whenever something would happen he'd be all like "oh my this is rather strange," and you don't know whether he's faking it or not.
