In "Deep Breath," the long farewell phone call from the Eleventh Doctor to Clara, begging her to stay with the newly-regenerated Twelfth Doctor (and Madame Vastra's earlier speech to Clara, "He wasn't your boyfriend! You have to accept his new face,") are aimed at Doctor Who's present-day teenage fanbase, who liked the young David Tennant and Matt Smith, but some of whom have said Peter Capaldi is too old to play the Doctor.

Did you miss Clara's very loud call-out of Vastra calling her shallow? Like I said in the edit reason, she was scared of the Doctor because he was acting crazy and dickish, not because she was being a stand-in for a shallow minority. And the phone call was again, nothing to do with looks, everything to do with a scary change.

Pulled this, because I just don't get how it's this trope at all.

  • In the Doctor Who episode "Planet of the Ood" (which was basically an Author's Saving Throw for the Doctor being fine with the Ood's Happiness in Slavery the first time he met them), not only does the Ood go and do something just as morally questionable, but it leads to this exchange that implies that the fans shouldn't expect The Doctor to always have the same values as them:
    Donna: When I'm with you... I can't tell what's right and what's not anymore.
    10th Doctor: It's probably best that way....

I'm just going to leave this here and note the lack of borderlands.

Wot C putting a request for more Gamma World material in their April Fools Editorial. It's one thing to say there will be no more material, another to mock the idea that there will be more. Does this count?

I know its an unpopular season, but how is Buffy season 6 hostile towards the fanbase?

I was wondering the same thing. I'm going to remove it. If somebody feels it belongs there, feel free to restore it, but please explain why.
