Well said. Well said indeed. I must say I’ve been in the camp of feeling disappointed in DW lately, but you’ve made some very good points, and I think I will approach the next episode with a much more open mind.
I expressed on twitter last night my frustration at the knee jerk reaction of many members of this fandom to immediately look for and post things they hate in an episode. What I loved about this fandom to begin with, what ultimately got me interested in watching the show, was how much they loved their characters, and how willing they were to suspend their disbelief because they wanted to assume the best. Yes, sometimes we all have to call out things we love on their outrageous errors, but I feel as though that impulse has grown stronger since about halfway through season 6. It seems as though all of the good things happening in the show are being drowned out. I’d like to argue that there are some good things happening in this show still. This fandom has largely felt very toxic and hypercritical to me, and I’d like to be able to be a part of it without feeling like my positivity is seen as a negative.
So without further ado, let’s get going. Under the cut will be, obviously, spoilers for both Asylum of the Daleks and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship
