Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

This is the SECOND podcast I’ve done about the fucking TV Movie. I am now officially and forever DONE with this bloody thing.
Save yourselves the trouble, dear listeners, and just imagine Phil saying “What the fuck?” and me saying “It doesn’t make sense!” over and over again for 90 minutes.

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a mic attached to a podcaster’s mouth forever…

I don’t imagine that is too far off, if not around now. Remember the JennyCam site from years back… just broadcasting her somewhat dull life into other people’s dull lives. That was a thing, and a big thing at the time.
Now just someone live-streaming the audio of their life for… some reason. It could work.
Oh, and thanks for the commentary, guys.

I found this quite entertaining.
I only listened to the commentary of course as, though I am deeply sad I’m not deranged enough to voluntarily watch the TV movie.
Based on your discussion and my vague recollection of seeing it when it was broadcast it seems very telling that the makers appear to have felt that regeneration, basically a gimmick to allow the show to keep running, is the most interesting thing about the Doctor. Rather than the idea of dropping out of your world, his (often compromised) anti-authoritarianism, or even the “yeti in the loo” juxtaposition.

Point on the TV Movie being the first use of CGI rather than Time and the Rani (as the title sequence isn’t diagetic) – in actual fact the pre-titles sequence of Time and the Rani is CGI – it uses the same CGI TARDIS as the title sequence against different CGI starfields to show the TARDIS being hit by the Rani’s green missiles before cutting to the TARDIS interior and the exercise bike about to fall.
Unless there is CGI that pre-dates this in the show, Time and the Rani makes the claim!
