Oh my God, did I seriously suggest that people shun Russell T Davies?

Wow. That’s...deeply embarrassing.

You did!

I did go a little bit o_O about it, but it was quite a seductive image, of everyone silently turning their backs upon him as he walked through ComicCon. It was very vivid, like a scene from a movie. I confess I thought it was a little extreme, but then I've not seen CoE (spoiled though I am). And, hey, you weren't talking about SHOOTING the guy or anything.

fwiw, if it helps, I posted tentacleporn. Now THAT'S embarrassing.

I need some kind of *blushing* icon.

I watched CoE in a marathon viewing session with a local fan club and I was quite moved by it. Having rewatched (most of) it solo and considered it in relation to the whole series, I am less satisfied. Also, I am troubled by its implications re: Doctor Who and annoyed that RTD will not be addressing them in the remaining DW specials — hey, buddy, if you open the can of worms, you should deal with what squirms out. Finally, I am hugely annoyed that (a) he’s only discussed Ianto’s death in terms of its impact on Jack, thereby making it a fridging; (b) seems to consider said fridging daring, edgy writing (it’s a cliché); and (c) appears to think the protests are only from fans disappointed they didn’t get more boykissin’.

Or to put it more briefly: it’s his show and he can do what he likes, I just wish it had been done better and that he would acknowledge some of the criticism is aesthetic, not merely...oh, damn, I can’t think of the word. “Scurrilous” is close but lacks the sexual connotation I’m looking for (I remembered!) motivated by frustrated prurience.

fwiw, if it helps, I posted tentacleporn. Now THAT'S embarrassing.

Ooh, I remember that one! Hawt. I mean, deeply wrong, but hot.

Dang, this turned into a long comment.
