44 – Goodbye Streaming Rights

 

| Open Player in New Window

We discuss the exit from all streaming media of Doctor Who and what thats so tragic, along with Jenna Louise Colemans new Queen Victoria drama, Tennant doing Shakespeare, and Legends of Tomorrow.

 

Doctor Who. . .  gone from Netflix and Hulu. Why?!? Why this is a bad idea. BBCs app. Why the app is a bad idea.  No no no. Just no. Andy pulls out his soapbox and get political.

Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria. Freaky Victoria yes, boring Victorian era no. Downton Abbeys sexy times. Bad rape!

David Tennant hosting Shakespeare festival celebrating 400 years since his death. Cumberbatch in Hamlet. East End vs West End of London. Andys an idiot. Was there a Richard V? No, Henry V. Fassbender as Macbeth. Coriolanus. Andys better Harry Potter movie.  The Chimes at Midnight.

Legends of Tomorrow is basically Americas Doctor Who. Rory vs Mick Rory. Differing views of Wentworth Miller.

We discuss the major news that Moffat is leaving at the end of Season 10 and will be replaced by Chris Chibnall.

We should never go on break. RIP Alan Rickman, Glen Frey, David Bowie, Abe Vigoda. Bowie references.  Fifth and Seventh Doctors and Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience.

The Moffat departure. Was it about money? Blame for low ratings? Chris Chibnall all his episodes:  real time spaceship falling into the sun episode 42, underground reptilian race episode arc The Hungry Earth / Cold Blood, the aptly titled Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, and the Amy-Rory domestic comedy about evil omnipresent tech The Power of Three. Torchwood: Day One, Cyberwoman, Countrycide, End of Days, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Adrift, Fragments, Exit Wounds.

Broadchurch. Especially Season 2.

Final call: Chibnall is a mixed bag, and its impossible to speculate. But theres not a ton of confidence in him.
