"It feels different this time..." - The new Doctor Who Thread

Kazin

did i do all of that?
(he/him)
Yeah. He'd already been doing this shit by the time he was cast on Doctor Who, too. Ugh.
 

Kazin

did i do all of that?
(he/him)
Yeah, there have been stories going around for years about Barrowman. I could have sworn I posted about it in the old thread, but I don't recall if I did or not for sure... Also, the guy who played Adam in Dalek was convicted of assaulting women at a nightclub a few years back, too...

I cuss you bad
It's weird watching that clip. I absolutely would in no way find that funny, much less regale anyone with the story of it afterwards.

Other than the police, obviously.

Not to make light of the situation, but just wanted to say it struck me that Kazin's avatar expression seems appropriate for this whole discussion.

Patrick Troughton has the most delightful, malleable face, good for any situation.

I wonder if this kind of environment is in any way related to why Eccleston quit the show and wrote it off for over a decade.
Yeah, this quote in particular from Eccleston in the article you linked strikes me as relevant: "I thought if I stay in this job, I'm going to have to blind myself to certain things that I thought were wrong."

Yeahhhh, that really reads more pointedly in light of all this Clarke stuff coming to light. :/
 

Phantoon

I cuss you bad
If that's what it was, it's crazy that they lost Eccleston and kept Clarke. It does reflect very positively on Eccleston.
 

Kazin

Would it be crazy, though? Predatory men are always protected/treated as though they're harmless and women are constantly driven out of their workplaces/industries regardless of culture, job, etc. It's distressingly normal.
