that says “whoops”

although i’ll be honest with you, i feel like doctor who isn’t really sci-fi but sci-fantasy, where there’s technology, but it doesn’t really matter because he’s a magician. i think where i get bent out of shape is it seems like it had origins as a low-budget show — which is fine — but they kind of built the low budget into the mythos. like the tardis can’t (or won’t) change shape from a police box. or this robot has an “vertical etheric filament” through which it draws its power (but it’s actually the string holding up the puppet)

(okay i made that one up)

(sounded pretty clever to me. doctor who producers, contact me, got some great ideas for this franch [franchise])
