I’d think stating a character that looks human, is found relatable by many people, and that has been shown to fall in love (at least something we recognize as such by human standards) to be asexual is a much better attempt at representation than /no/ attempt
if we’re just talking about why people like the concept of looming there’s like 389567 things I could list starting with representation
There’s a few different reasons
- it’s not a very well liked concept for a lot of fans so the joke is that we really like it, a bit like adric. It’s just seeing the irony in ‘hey this is actually very interesting’ when it’s usually brushed off or disliked.
- it’s an unusual, pretty alien idea so the joke comes from taking it casually
- it freaks nuvians out
by that logic everyone should have to ‘try’ everything before they know their orientation that’s how little sense it makes
I’ve never actually read a ‘rating the doctors’ article that gave paul (or any of the others) credit for their big finish work and honestly you just can’t have a fair judging without taking that into consideration
basically I just wish there was a ‘rating the doctors’ article that actually examined the character of each doctor in depth and determined which one was the most interesting and well-characterized instead of just jumping to ‘david tennant and tom baker are best because they are popular’
I wish people would stop using polls that display a heavy bias toward david tennant as ‘proof’ that he’s the best doctor and then writing articles with little depth as to why beyond ‘he brought the show back to popularity’ or ‘rose was a good companion’ while throwing paul and colin at the bottom because ‘he didn’t have much screen time’ or ‘his clothes were ugly’
why do people say the tenth dr who was the ‘kindest’ where do they even get that idea
hon let me sum this up for you
its not just the shit effects its the rubbish storys that are boring and take 50 episodes to finish characters that put you to sleep as well as not much action going on and a crap sound track to.
to sum it up
the third three doctors where boring as hell and never did alot through i only saw a couple of them
tom barker is alright and kind of funny but the show was still dull sadly
peter davson was cute and i liked him but again the episodes where boring and went on forever
and then you had colin who was utter rubbish and ruined the show and maccoy or whatever looked like a fat verson of the ridler from batmans.
the shows just old and sad now and fans need to let it go now(like the frozen song lol)
