:Doctor13: doctor who, just vaguely spoilerish Show more

omg i LOVE Jodie Whittaker. What a brilliant doctor. #doctorwho

I have seen the new #DoctorWho and I am happy to report the show is in exceptionally good shape for 55 years old. And the new Doctor seems to have the right attitude from the start: she helps people.

@noelle Pertwee & Tom Baker are my faves, mainly because PBS was airing those here in the USA when I was little. But it was the 80s for me too.

Odd fact about me: my "first Who" is the wrong actor for the time I was watching the show. I started watching #DoctorWho in summer 1986, which was Colin Baker's era - but at that time, the station in Australia on which I was watching Doctor Who was airing Jon Pertwee episodes, so Pertwee is My Doctor despite my having been born after he left the role.

@abulletforfree Well it's impossible to be 100% sure based on only 1 episode, but yeah. Disclosure: I enjoyed 11 and 12 despite Moffat, but I agree, Moffat was just a horrible, horrible Doctor Who showrunner/writer.

All signs in this new episode, for me, point to a huge turnaround.

computer nerds
do us all a favor
literally everyone who isn't a programmer

get
a fucking
union

The amount of clout a programmers union would wield is just fucking incredible. Stop fucking around like just because you get a lopsided paycheque the rest of us won't ever see things are somehow ok. They aren't.

Organize a union.
Help fix this mess.
