Doctor Who Gets a New Actor, More Moffatsplaining

Like mansplaining, Moffatsplaining involves giving an explanation that’s far less helpful than the speaker thinks it is. For example: That time Steven Moffat explained the plot hole about the departure of Amy and Rory, or the plot hole about the Statue of Liberty. This time he’s turned his Moffatsplaining powers to the Doctor’s not-death on Trenzalore. We also have a new actor, Matt Smith talking about how his generation scene could have been a lot darker than it ended up, and Paul McGann on why he probably won’t be coming back to Doctor Who any time soon.

Allons-y!

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Alternate Versions of Doctor Who

This year, the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, “The Day of the Doctor,” introduced us properly to the War Doctor. This previously unknown incarnation of the hero, played by John Hurt, wore an outfit combining elements of the Eighth Doctor’s with the leather jacket of the Ninth, plus a belt taken from a woman named Cass whom the hero had previously failed to save. “The Day of the Doctor” also featured another version of the hero who had previously only appeared in the novel Summer Falls by Amelia Williams (AKA Amy Pond).

Over the years, there have been other interesting alternative takes on the Time Lord scientist of the planet Gallifrey. So this time around, we’re looking at the “what could have been” and “almost were” versions of the Doctor, along with costumes the character has worn in licensed media. Fan-films and the like aren’t included or we’d be here forever, even if we had a time machine.

So wouldn’t it be nice, says this fan, if he appeared in the 50th anniversary special?
