I Can’t Decide Whether BBC America Should Live or Die

I caught “Last of the Time Lords” on BBC America last week – and they’d cut out the following scene!

Now admittedly that scene doesn’t really advance the plot; but still, I would bet it’s the one scene that fans best love and remember from that episode. (Plot isn’t everything.) And of course BBC America offers its viewers no announcement that they’re watching truncated versions of episodes.

    There are fans who hate that scene. I think they’re nuts, of course; and they in turn probably think I’m nuts for believing approximately 90% of the program’s scenes with Daleks could be improved if the monsters were replaced by camp villains singing the Scissor Sisters.

    By the way, thanks for the reminder of how good the Russell Davies epoch could be. I just made the mistake of watching Death of the Doctor, and was this close to forgetting why I ever liked his work at all.

    Btw, John Simm was great casting as the Master — but it wasn’t completely out of the blue, because he’d played Caligula a few years before:

    The finest of the RTD episodes is still “Midnight” imo.

    Those rat bastards! How dare they tamper with Davies Doctor!

    “Last of the Time Lords” is looking greatly like the future of our world.
