Why do people criticise the Slitheen so often and pass them off as silly due to the fact they fart when they’re disguised as humans.
They were really interesting in the plot of trying to sell Earth and abusing positions of power in order to achieve their goal with little to no care for the cost of human lives. Blon Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen was deeply intriguing for the sole fact she let a human go instead of murdering her for she was pregnant and Blon has already lost her relatives, and this topic was revisited by the Doctor in a meaningful conversation that was a great character study for Nine as this character who could be, as Blon described, a god.
Granted, they aren’t the most compelling or complex Doctor Who monsters, but their greed and Blon’s understanding of the Doctor versus being in awe of him was something I really did enjoy and a neat monster for kids who looked like the typical perception of aliens, had strange quirks and ultimately had simple but clear plot-lines in both DW and TSJA.
A fairy tale where a child is cursed and the spell can only be broken with true love’s kiss.
Their mother then gently kisses them on the forehead and the spell is broken.
After all, love isn’t just romantic.
RTD had his problems, but he never had did this, I mean I must have forgetten all those sex jokes the Doctor made at Rose, and gave her the nickname Legs, and the camera shots focused on Rose’s legs, or the Doctor forcing her in to a kiss, just because he was happy not to save her life or anything, or when then Doctor told her to put trouser’s on, or when the Doctor told her her skirt was too tight.
Oh what none of those things ever happened. But that happens all the time to Amy and Clara. The Doctor was beyond respectful to Rose, it terms of sexuality. Rose never wore outfits that sexualized her nor were the camera shots focused on her outfit for sexual intent nor were her outfits never the focus of the show. RTD never did that, but Moffat did film an entire scene with River topless that had to be cut out.
Jesus Christ equating a love story to sexualizing someone is the most bullshit argument I’ve ever heard. I mean it’s people didn’t even watch season one or two.
#this#although rose was sexualised twice#firstly when she was clinging for her life on a barrage balloon#and we had a shot zoomed right in on her bum while jack commented on it#and then secondly when she was strapped down ready to be tortured by robots#there was a male gazey shot of her boobs that was put ‘for the dads’#and guess who wrote both those episodes (via burntlikethesun)
