lizbee: A white, slim, pretty woman looks over her shoulder with an enigmatic smile (DW: Clara)

Given that we're at a halfway point, and also I keep forgetting to to this in a more timely manner, it seems like a decent moment to mention that I've been blogging ("reviewing" is far too strong a word) about each episode at No Award.

"The Magician's Apprentice" and "The Witch's Familiar"

"Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood"

"The Girl Who Died" and "The Woman Who Lived"

TL;DR: Missy is delightful; I launch an extended ramble about asexualism in Doctor Who, and how that is not asexual representation; I think they're doing something interesting and well-written with Clara which I nevertheless dislike; I don't think things will end well for Clara at all, but I'm more optimistic for her than the UK tabloids.

That time of year is fast-approaching us once again - we are mere weeks away from the 52nd Anniversary of Doctor Who! And as in previous years, I thought it would be nice to commemorate it at [community profile] who_at_50 via the medium of fanwork.

Please allow me to announce, therefore, the [community profile] who_at_50 52nd Anniversary Fanwork-a-thon, celebrating more than half a century of Doctor Who-related goodness. All - that is all - forms of fannish endeavour are welcome - fanfic, fanart, fanvids, fanmixes, icons, podfic, and absolutely any other medium in which you want to express your creativity and celebrate your love for that which is Who, almost certainly including some I've never even heard of. Signups are open from today; posting of fanworks will commence from 1 November 2015 and continue throughout the month. Anything evoking the idea of the extraordinary longevity and diversity of Who would be especially welcome, but maybe the best way to do that is by creating the most typically Doctor Who-like Doctor Who fanwork you can?

If you're interested in taking part, please visit one of the signup posts linked to below to see some more specific instructions and, hopefully, to sign up!

[community profile] onlyonebed is the new fandom fest for one of the best tropes ever: sharing a bed!

We've all done it. Watched a scene between the Tenth Doctor and Mickey, or the Twelfth Doctor and Missy, or the Eleventh Doctor and the entire Paternoster Gang, and thought – hey. What if these people had to share a slightly too-small bed for transparently self-indulgent reasons only tenuously related to the plot? What might happen? Unresolved sexual tension? Awkward yet endearing cuddling? Naked Twister? The inspiration for the invention of the earplug?

Let’s find out!

If you’ve ever wanted to write fic, create fanart, make a vid, or write the score for a low-budget rock opera in which two or more characters from Doctor Who and its related media (including Sarah Jane Adventures, Big Finish audios, Torchwood, comics, etc.) have to share a bed for some kind of transparent and possibly only vaguely plot-related reason, this is the fest for you.

All pairings, genres, and ratings are welcome (but please come and FILL THE PAGES with Doctor/Master prompts, I will love you forever). Prompting opens December 1, and prompts are available for claiming on December 15. Fics should be posted throughout the month February 2015 - giving us all twenty-eight days of sharing a bed. :D

You can also find us on:
Livejournal
Tumblr
So please feel free to participate wherever you prefer, and have fun!

Dissing Death in Heaven

Image: Clara walks among gravestones.

Almost there. With only a Christmas "special" still to dread, the 2014 slog that was Doctor Who's 8th revived series has, mercifully, nearly come to a close (if not to a merciful close).

An an honest critic must give Steven Moffat his due. From Danny Pink's classroom tears in his introductory episode, to a payoff for television's Least Convincing Romance Ever, to the Doctor's query, "Am I a good man?", with which the series opened, at least this year, Moffat didn't drop any of the major plot points he raised during the series. (Well. Maybe one. Time will tell.) The answers were neither clever nor convincing, but at least they were provided.

Yes, that's faint praise; and probably too generous. For along with the answers, "Death in Heaven" slaps us with un-foreshadowed plot twists out of sketch-comedy satire, blatant emotional manipulation, a debate on moral philosophy whose sophistication would shame a class of 12 year-olds, and an entirely unwelcome appearance by a Magical Negro.

But tell us what you really think! I hear you cry. Of plots and themes and lies and agonies. Spoilers and cussing as usual. I think most of you know the drill by now.

February
