At least the person at the ABC shop selling Doctor Who merchandise is out of a job now, what with the physical ABC stores running at a loss and closing down. So there are some positives to take from this.

Why are so many of these stories about cosplayers being heroes?  It's like the secret second cosplay episode.

Obviously it's because cosplay is the most heroic and brave act. ::applause::

I love Dr Who and I still wanna slap the ABC shop person and never stop slapping them.

Also, the 'you make a stand, you say no, bla bla bla' speech is a fucking quote from the show, which makes it even more infuriating in an already infuriating parade of infuriating stories.

Likewise. Yeah, I love the show, but "deep"? Are you fucking kidding me?

LEMON: the third time I told it it got way more dramatic, because I knew that the first two times I told it, like, nobody liked it?...so I said this, and she cried, and left the room...
ISFAHAN: the story didn't screen well, so you went to rewrites?
LEMON: Yeah! I mean, I genuinely did. Like, I don't know if that's a bad thing on my part but I do do that, I do do that with anecdotes where I don't actually know with an anecdote that I've told for five years, how much of it is true.
ISFAHAN: Sure.
BOOTS: That's not unique. I've got a handful of those too.

I was talking with a friend the other day about this excellent piece ("The Marineland Dreamland") from The Walrus a few years ago, written by a guy who was so concerned with his anecdote's truthiness that he did an investigative journalist piece on his own memory. It feels relevant to the quoted dialogue above.There's a companion podcast piece here, if you feel like the essay ends abruptly.

I always love when nerds get the wrong order in the 'yea it's an x show but y can enjoy it too'.

Dr Who is literally a kid's show. It's a kid's show that the writers feel can be good for all ages as well, but even fuckin Moffat has said it's a kid's show.

If you don't think doctor who is a kid's show, there's two options: either you are a kid, or you are a kid, mentally.

Like tales of promiscuous gay sex, it shouldn't be hard to tell a story about crazy customers in retail.

The very existence of these laughable power fantasies prove that these people wouldn't say shit to anyone, about anything.
