Dear GOD! I tell you, I often cringe at how I've treated Sparacus in the knowledge that Gabriel Chase was out there all along. Once again, Spara, at the very least this guy deserved that crap more.
Gabriel Chase (the discerning Who fan) and his contact free website. It prides itself on not mentioning anything post McCoy. Except in the tiny "parallel universes" section for 'unreal Doctor Who' section which is, ironically, the only thing Chase can update.
The page has been reedited to turn RTD's Doctor Who into a single section (in order to make it look less interesting and significant) and the good howlers of Captain John Bannerman and the like are gone. But new stuff is there!
More an illegitimate second-cousin than a legitimate child. During a summer littered with endless reruns of the new series on BBC3 and UKTV Gold, word emerged that Freema Agyeman was to be farmed out to Torchwood
No, Spara did a riff on this too, so I don't need to discuss this further. However, while Spara hated the character of Martha, I don't think Chase has even seen an episode, so it is total sloppy research rather than bias. I'm not sure which is worse.
and replaced by Catherine Tate, presumably because Tate is more of a celeb than Agyeman.
Yes. More celeb = better. Which is why Agyeman replaced that nobody, Billie Piper.
Give me strength.
A second shock announcement followed, stating that the show wouldn't be run at all in 2009 owing to Tennant appearing in a theatrical run of Macbeth, something that would never have been done during the original series.
Now, even the most pessimistic and new series hating of fans would balk at that.
It's not 100% sure about whether Tennant asked for a year off or is simply making the best of an outside problem, but there will be three specials in 2009. And that doesn't include specials like Attack of the Graske or the Infinite Quest. It's a hell of a lot more than we got in 1990, isn't it?
If he can't be arsed reporting GENUINE facts, why bother updating the part of the site he isn't interested in? Is he desperate for something to do?
Are the cracks beginning to show?
What I love is that he left this sentence at the bottom after Doctor Who performed the horrifying transgression of adapting "Human Nature" (which, despite rendering the book series non canonical apparently ties the series to them - but did he say anything about "Blink"?) then edited in the snub about Martha, then edited in the 2009 issue.
Basically, how much news is he going to keep adding before "the cracks" actually "show"?
Gabriel Chase, you are a fool, a cad and a simpleton. And a coward too, since you refuse to let anyone contact you.
