I’m kinda sick of people saying that the weak special effects in Classic Who are the point, with the show relying on story over effects. There is no story/effects dichotomy. A good story can be good with bad effects, yes. The Ark in Space is great despite the bubble wrap. But imagine how much better it would be if they had better special effects capabilities? If it didn’t have to be bubble wrap? It’d be brilliant, that’s what it’d be. The whole claim is just trying to imply new Who is innately worse for having better technology, which is fundamentally ridiculous.

Day 43: Something Epic

↳ Time Crash

“You know, I love being you. Back when I first started at the very beginning, I was always trying to be old and grumpy and important, like you do when you’re young. And then I was you, and it was all dashing about and playing cricket and my voice going all squeaky when I shouted. I still do that, the voice thing. I got that from you.”

Okay, I think I’ll set the Cards Against Humanity game for 7pm EST. I’m terribly sorry to those in time zones where that’s too late/early for you to play, I’ll be sure to make the next game at a time that works for you all, too! 

Here’s the link, and the password is “classicdrwho”.

Remember, using your tumblr url is not required or expected. If you want to stay anonymous, feel free! Also, the idle timer and card animation options are off, I’m 99% sure I got the connect/quit notifications hidden (in other words, you can leave without the chat saying “*insert name here* has left”), and questions about how to play are welcome!
