Ming Mong Tick Tock
Unbelievable. Just days after an interview in SFX in which online fans are described as "ming mongs" (the root of this insult being an offensive slur against Down’s Syndrome sufferers notwithstanding) by showrunner Russell T Davies, a bunch of clowns have complained about the scheduled 6.30 start time.
Get a grip you chimps.
Just because it isn’t on a 7pm like it has been for 18 of the previous 39 episodes (not including specials) you have some sort of queenie strop?
Apparently Digital Spy forum member ‘prking’ said:
"6.20pm is too early. When its been on at an earlier time in the past few years the ratings have dropped. I’ll have to record it as we don’t get home home on a Saturday until 6.45-ish".
Try leaving earlier, tosser.
Meanwhile, ‘Djonshore’ from Wales added:
"I guess before long it’ll be at the 5.30pm timeslot like the old days."
Which old days? Doctor Who never started at 5.30 in the old days. Perhaps you’re thinking of 7pm weekdays? 7.30pm weekdays? 5.25pm in the old days? 6.20pm in the old days? 6.45pm in the old days?
8pm in 1996?
Do you even know what you’re complaining about?
Take a look around, smell the coffee and get a life!
