|“||We can only join together in prayer that he never runs Doctor Who.||”|
Chris 'Sex Gas' Chibnall is a writer.
He's written some godawful dreck we'd all like to forget ever happened, some decent episodes (42, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.) and some really shitty episodes (The Power of Three) and a terribly uninteresting Twin Peaks ripof Cop Show that nobody has ever heard of or cared about for ITV. Because of that, he is sadly the upcoming showruiner.
Chibbers Who: Edit
- 42 (2007)
- The Hungry Earth / Cold Blood (2010)
- Pond Life (2012)
- Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (2012)
- The Power of Three (2012)
- P.S. (2012)
- Broadchurch (it has Handy and the next Doctor (no, not that one) in it, it counts).
Overall you can see here an extremely diverse set of episodes. None of them are like the previous ones, just as none of them are memorable or particularly good (the only common thread is that the conflict is often forced, never needing to fucking happen in the context of the story). Which puts him in contrast with Steven Moffat (Who wrote the same episode over and over but it was somehow good every time) and makes him somewhat similar to Russell T. Davies.
He's going to be worse than Moffat and maybe a bit better than Russell at his worst. RIP Who.
Stop fucking whining, Doctor Who survived Michael Grade. It survived The Kandyman. It survived farting aliens. It survived BEING CANCELLED. It can survive some above-average quality script writer.
Confirmed as showruiner Edit
Situation: Extreme Panic Edit
In January 2016 it was was confirmed by the Beeb the show would be on hiatus for a year and Slippery Chibs would be succeeding The Moffburger as showruiner in 2018. Moff delivers his final Moffucking with Series 10 in 2017 and Flibbers begins with Series Dubs.
50/50 some are open to change, some want the Moff to continue.
Hey guys, look on the bright side:
At least he's not Mark Gatiss.
It was announced in July 2017 that Chibbald had cast Jodie Whittaker as Thirteen, making this the first ever official girly Doctor. At some point around this time, Chibnall acquired a wig. It is unknown if these two events are related.
