    I honestly do not know, I imagine it would depend on how your particular phone carrier directs internet traffic.

    Not always, no. Some ISPs use static IPs, others user dynamic.
    VPNs also mess with how websites see IP addresses.

    Users tend to share IP addresses, based on their ISP.
    Some users misbehave. They get banned. They sign up with another account (demonstrated their inability to take responsibility for their own...

    Yes, when the forums reset all the bans that were on record were wiped and any past behaviours forgotten about.
    We did, however, keep in mind a very small number of extraordinarily horrid folk who...

    No, not really.
    The top secret team driving around in a neon lit vehicle.
    Almost losing to the equivalent of hillbillies.
    One of the team being a date rapist.

    All those mini series were awful....

    And that there is probably the key to each incarnation of the Doctor having success - even though they are centuries upon centuries old, they still have visible character growth.

    A final word on the matter.
    Comicsgate is a harassment group. They are the worst aspect of comic book fandom.
    They've been harassing and abusing creators for years now and appear to have no...

    I've removed the video.
    We do NOT post videos from comicsgaters and their ilk on these forums. Those people do not deserve a platform here.

    Your points are well taken.
    That being said, the classic series had some absolute stinkers as well.
    The Twin Dilemma and Time and the Rani spring to mind as obvious examples.

    Do you have a link to said figures?
    Or a chart that you could post?

    Jodie has done a fine job with what she's been given.
    I do not agree with your 'point to make over good storytelling' line, though. Doctor Who has been VERY blatant about making political and social...

    Oh, there's essentially endless ways for it to be done.

    In the novels, when the Time Lords were facing off against The Enemy in that version of the Time War ... well, they went and created...

    What appears to be a clueless and abandoned child, a person with no agency or real ability to effectively protest, taken to a lab and scientifically experimented on essentially endlessly? To the...

    Which, of course, was part of the Master's plan all along. He wanted his TARDIS on board the Doctors. It was a deliberate act.

    Getting back on track, 13th's general helplessness really does not...

    The bar may be, as you say, set low but I think he's referring more to narrative messes, rather than quality of stories.

    For example, trying to make the Doctor actually effective again and somehow...

    Roger Delgado is still, by a huge stretch, the best Master of them all.

    Underwhelming is a pretty good description of the 13th Doctor, I think.
    She seems to be very much like the 5th - an incarnation that simply isn't that effective in situations where other versions...

    While the writing of that era wasn't the greatest, it was mostly the BBC itself that was keen to see Who end that was the main culprit.
    That being said, that era did include notable stories such as...

    *Looks over at Gallifrey and the Time Lords*

    It's lazy writing going for shock value instead of narrative quality.

    One thing I despise in writing is when a creative team changes and tears down what was previously built up, just so they they can set up their own vision.
    Vendeitti did it over in Green Lantern (the...

    I've just gone through and deleted a bunch of posts that related to a somewhat ... ghoulish and disappointing branch of discussion.
    Creators are people.

    The canary cry was used only at the end because it matched Dinah's character arc - overcoming the trauma caused by the death (perceived betrayal) of her mother. She didn't want to use it and was...

    I saw BoP and rather enjoyed it. Certainly superior to other efforts such as Man of Steel, Justice League or BvS. Not quite Wonder Woman level but still entertaining.
    Action scenes were well done...

    This episode was just sort of ... there.
    There were no revelations. No discernible character growth.
    There was a thing, it happened, the TARDIS moved on.

    Of course, the thing I'm forced to wonder about is...

    as shown in stories such as The Three Doctors, it takes a lot (even by Time Lord standards) of energy and jiggery-pokery for multiple...
