    while barely getting a word in edgewise isn t ruled out There s not a lot of outwitting going on When Joss Whedon manque Russell T Davies first rebooted the franchise his achilles heel was his adoption of the surface characteristics of Buffy and Angel with only the slimmest understanding of how plot and character interact resulting in relentlessly annoying hysteria and a lack of story dynamic He gave us sentiment instead of profound emotional involvement lurches instead of arcs within arcs that dipped and soared along with our spirits Bad habits have stuck I was always shown and told that the rule was show don t tell The Doctor babbles exposition like a mofo in a stinker of a script in search of a storyline Note to producers making characters talk 13 to the dozen like coke fiends doesn t mean we won t notice little things like plot holes and entire missing throughlines Have none of you heard of PACING Longeurs stretched into longdays as sub Buffy banter held up the promised action while we were expected to genuflect before the awesomeness of Moffat s one liners a vanity process not far removed from pounding rock for diamonds yes there were a few but by the time they surfaced I was too exhausted to care You can lesbian lizard snog all you like in order to establish your LGBT credentials but class hierarchy is alive and very unwell in the world of Doctor Who Any subversive value resides in the relationship between Lady Handbag Madame Vastra and her maid wife being normalised not hollered triumphantly every two minutes Uncool Why re we back in very unsubversive days when maids and butlers were the norm know your place kids and where the white ninja maid appropriates eastern skills but the only actual East Asian Clem So in sight is a robot Reactionary mindset leaking at the edges Even Harry Potter had an East Asian girlfriend until she was dumped for a white girl under circumstances never satisfactorily explained In fact not much ethnic minority presence at all in this one And why does the Doctor keep exposing his frock coat s red silk lining like a lady baboon flashing her in oestrus labia So many questions so much left dangling We wade through a swamp of exposition so thick you could stand a spoon up in it The origins and rationale of the cyborg aliens aren t revealed through the clever workings of the script Capaldi has to bark them out while the cyborg stares glassily politely waiting for him to finish The cyborg s not too bright anyhow Eons of farming humans in order to make a skin balloon when he could have used whatever material Victorian dirigibles were made from or simply bought some animal skins from the local abbatoir The funniest moments are owned by Strax the over literal butler Dan Starkey whose knocking out of Clara with a rolled up copy of The Times was authentic laugh out loud slapstick Clara goggles her way through like someone who s been told she has pretty eyes which she does and has given up blinking for fear of hiding them Her shrill tantrums have been praised as the mark of a strong woman Surely the critics have mistaken petulant for feisty Having her throw strops and hissy fits at inappropriate moments is a singularly ham fisted method of telegraphing that this is not your dad s submissive Dr Who companion but an incredibly dated Grrrl Power trope that the BBC has only just twigged exists Brattish and bossy when she could be co operative sensitive and insightful but there I go again talking about myself it s catching Clara is the template for the privileged breed of management who climb up the echelons of the BBC and walk off with those million quid payoffs FFS don t try this at home kids In the name of the British Empire cries Madame Vastra as her gang perform their rescue Drip drip drip Doctor Who is the hard wiring of young minds into the values of the Establishment not those of our real British society The post war period of freedom and relative prosperity for the masses is at an end the party s over and the Doctor has reincarnated into the child catcher Protect your tender budding brains Retain your critical faculties even as you chow down on your intermittently tasty comfort food Deep Breath review first posted at Madam Miaow Says Review of the rebooted Sherlock The Blind Banker Posted in Reviews Television Tagged Doctor Who Peter

comedian Anna Chen on Asian stereotypes terracotta warriors and pets This week hundreds of actors artists and creatives attended the Act for Change conference at the Young Vic in London looking at the alarming lack of diversity in TV film the media and the arts Fed up with the continuing exclusion of Black Asian Mixed race Ethnic BAME actors I m reposting a video above of a couple of gigs I did a while back at The Lion s Den and Mirth Control lampooning stupid Asian stereotypes London my home city is nearly 40 per cent BAME A few years back there was 31 per cent BAME representation in the media industry but that s plummeted to five per cent since Ofcom dropped their diversity guidance I ve touched on this before but still no response anywhere from Ofcom who one might suspect don t give a flying one For someone who s pretty hard to miss I m surprisingly invisible There s a whole load of us feeling the same way and we re getting behind Act for Change Kat one of my fellow British East

  • Chinese British comic Anna Chen says WTF with the stereotypes? Stand-up comedy in the week of Act for Change.
    There s this idea that monsters have no reflection in a mirror And what I ve always thought isn t that monsters don t have reflections in a mirror It s that if you want to make a human being into a monster deny them at the cultural level any reflection of themselves And growing up I felt like a monster in some ways I didn t feel myself reflected at all And part of what inspired me was this deep desire that before I died I would make a couple of mirrors That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it Junot Diaz My show the subversively comical Suzy Wrong Human Cannon was all about that I performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1994 and nothing s changed Except maybe everything s going backwards You can t even rely on the left to do the right thing There s a dangerous side to minorities being kept invisible like a pool of scapegoating ready to activate whenever governments get into trouble The elephant in the room is that governments can and do divert social anger onto you when they screw up Being kept in the role of a blank canvas anyone can project their inner demons onto you And there are historical precedents for that Video two categories in Olympic weightlifting competition are the snatch and the clean and jerk True About Anna Writer performer and broadcaster View all posts by Anna This entry was posted in China Comedy Live performance Race Video and tagged Act for Change Bookmark the permalink Anna Chen s Chinese Diaspora talk and poetry reading at Liverpool s International Festival of Business China Day Doctor Who Deep Breath review 8 1 all hail Peter Capaldi shame about the script 2 Responses to Chinese British comic Anna Chen says WTF with the stereotypes Stand up comedy in the week of Act for Change CatsMelodjan says September 23 2014 at 12 01 Commentators provide a rich vein of comedy gold MICHAEL BUERK on BBC watching Phillipa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1 s UK eclipse coverage remarked They seem cold out there they re rubbing each other and he s only come in his shorts KEN BROWN commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining up shots at the Scottish Open Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny other weeks he prefers to do it by himself MIKE HALLETT discussing missed snooker shots on Sky Sports Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis s misses every chance he gets JACK BURNICLE was talking about Colin Edwards tyre choice on World Superbike racing Colin had a hard on in practice earlier and I bet he wished he had a hard on now STEWART MACHIN on Winning Post commentating on jockey Tony McCoy s formidable lead Tony has a quick look between his legs and
