Matt kisses a ...guy?



That's Matt Smith in a play called Citizenship which was shown with two other short plays in a feature called Burn/Chatroom/Citizenship

a new play by Mark Ravenhill
A bittersweet comedy about growing up, following a boy's frank and messy search to discover his sexual identity.
'One of his very best plays. Ravenhill captures excellently the sexual insecurity of adolescence as well as the infinite curiosity.'

Here's more info, if you'd like...

Should DW just end already?

Looking at the inane comments Moffat make in the past two DW Magazines and continuing to listen to and read the audios and comics and novels, I have to ask, controversially: should DW just end?

I mean the bulk of all of it is reallym, truly boring an truly disabling to the good stuff. ANY  of us can write a standard DW plot: there are only about fiveof them and even that is narrowed down by the new show which always has to include an alien of some sort.

Invasion: there's a base under siege or the entire world and there's bog standard military people running around, there's death(S) first, then a monster. The Doctor kills it.


Okay this tv series is without a doubt, the best show ever made. I tend to think that of its genre it is the best but honestly even out of its genre, it's still the best.

It SAYS something about people, law, humanity, good vs bad, bad vs good, conformity, etc. It just is so good and no movie, no matter how good could capture those 120 episodes of greatness. No new series could do that either. The movie is just slightly okay compared to the original show and as for theTim Daly remake show, pfffttt, pass it up. There will never be another David Jansen, just as there will never be another Richard Basehart or Guy Williams or Jonathan Harris. Or Martin Landau and Darren McGavin. Or Carol O Conner.
