The Doctor Who s4 finale rewatch (2/2, Journey’s End)

You’ve read the first one right? Let’s crack on.

Aww bless them.


The Doctor Who s4 finale rewatch (1/2, The Stolen Earth)

Okay so the rewatch of the Doctor Who season 4 finale was a BIG undertaking and loads of the cast and crew joined in! And some wonderful person actually put them all together in a list so the whole watchalong was made easier! Woo!

However, I’m gonna do the same thing I did for some of the other rewatches and put all the most interesting tweets together and in order. (Also I added Georgia Tennant’s tweets because they were friggin’ hilarious.) So first I’ve done The Stolen Earth and tomorrow I’ll do Journey’s End. There’s a wealth of fascinating information in there and well, this blog isn’t called Overly Devoted Archivist for nothing.

(Freema is utterly and totally delightful throughout all of this)

(I absolutely love all the Noel-Freema interactions here. Hey hope springs eternal Mickey and Martha will be back one day…)


Freema Agyeman returns to the Doctor Who universe

I am overjoyed about this, and I am also overjoyed that Freema answers interview questions with “aw mate.”

Tenth Doctor companion Martha Jones returns to the world of Torchwood in January next year. Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Sense 8, Line of Duty) starred in series 3 of New Doctor Who and its spin-off show, Torchwood, before going on to a huge career.

Big Finish Productions is delighted that Freema is reprising her role in this new Torchwood story, which explores what Martha did after her adventures with the Doctor.

Regarding that Pearl Mackie rumour.

There’s a couple of posts going around, rapidly gaining traction, stating that Pearl Mackie has been ‘fired’ from Doctor Who after just one series. Source: The Sun. Small problem with this:

The Sun are LIARS. Also racists, transphobes, homophobes, every bad thing under the sun. (Pun actually not intended.) I cannot stress this enough. Even in the UK, they have no credibility whatsoever. They are our equivalent of Fox News. Don’t just take my word for it, read their Wikipedia page.

They’ve worked out by now that a fake Doctor Who story = lots of clicks. Observe:


(They also once ran a story about Harriet Jones being the Supreme Dalek (???), though all evidence of it beyond that one forum link is long gone)

Anyway, and this is the really important part, so important I’m gonna put it in bold and italic and header font:

The Sun did this exact. same. thing to the last Black actress to join Doctor Who in a lead role.

A few episodes into Freema Agyeman’s run as Martha Jones, the Sun claimed she was “axed” (Original article long gone: text of it can be found here) Everyone believed it; the result was distressing to Agyeman, as you can imagine


And of course it wasn’t true. Freema Agyeman and Martha stuck around til series four.

I am SO PISSED OFF that The Sun did the same thing again, to another young black actress just starting out. So pissed off.

In fact, the bold header text is not enough to contain my pissed-off-ness.

The Sun is not a good newspaper. It is barely a newspaper. It is certainly not a credible source. It actively endangered people’s lives in the 80s with its lies about AIDS. It ruined many people’s lives in 1989 with its lies about the Hillsborough disaster. It published an article by human toilet (/frequent Sun contributor) Katie Hopkins calling for “cockroach” refugees to be gunned down. (Yes. That is a thing that really honestly happened.) It is nothing but lies, lies, racism, every other -ism, and lies. What wouldn’t I give to it, The Daily Mail and the Express gone from the shelves.

Do not believe what they’re saying about Pearl Mackie. Do not believe what they’re saying about anything. If you click on a Doctor Who story and see “The Sun” anywhere near it, immediately back away. They are scum. They are utter, utter scum.

Please spread this around with the same speed with which you would like to see Katie Hopkins punched in the face.
