I also recently read that they're genetically 98% vampire.

goldy_dollar on Doctor Who fandom:

-I have decided that whenever I come across accusations that Rose fans are wanky, I am going to close my eyes and THINK OF THE LOOMS. I mean, really, fandom? You come up with this elaborate backstory where fully grown Time Lords randomly POP OUT OF LOOMS just to have an explanation for why your main character MUST NOT HAVE SEX UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES and it is all based on some spin-off book that clearly has NO BASIS IN CANON WHATSOEVER. But Rose fans are wanky? Okay, then.

I find this endlessly amusing. Hahaha. Looooooooooms.

Context is for the weak, like sleep. I still think weaving is an inaccurate metaphor for genetics.

That is the nature of Who. It is crack with a budget.

A very small budget, which often necessitates making do with whatever's available and thus adding ever-more insanity because it's all they could afford at the time.

It's like the McGuyver of television. We will create a show using string, a trashcan, and strings of Christmas lights! Next week we'll use toilet paper tubes, a swimming pool, and cornstarch.

And we'll tell people that those various ingredients do the same thing, thus spinning off fic and fixits for the next 15 years!

I was watching the local PBS station's run of Who with a British friend, back in the early '90s. The station announced a pledge drive prize - a trip to England to tour shooting locations for Who. We turned to each other, blinked, and in perfect unison said "Quarries?"
