    Hey @janetteb‘s out of the three companions I like Graham the most and Ryan is closely behind as Yaz hasn’t really been developed and sometimes its strange how she fails to understand or act upon certain concepts she should know as a Police Officer in training such as smashing her phone when they were being tracked in SpyFall part 2 and possibly…[Read more]

    I am slowly getting through series 12 with my Dad after we went all the way through series 11 (the last episode we watched was Orphan 55 which I liked a lot for various reasons) , out of Seris 11 my fav is The Ghost Monument however Kablam was pretty cool, the Witchfinders was funny in a lot of parts and it takes you away I can appreciate some…[Read more]

    @oochillyo  There are some fine episodes in series 11 and 12 but for me, none really stand out as either exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. They are all average to above average. I like “Team Tardis” though I am beginning to find Graeme a bit annoying. Yaz is my favourite of the three and I hope to see her character get more “space” to…[Read more]

    hey everyone, what do you all think about Jodie’s era of Doctor Who and have you watched series 11 and 12 fully or lost interest along the way ?

    @janetteb Thank you for sharing your personal account of the episode, what Donna faced would have been awful beyond comprehension for anyone let alone any parent such as yourself, its clear that those two episodes can affect people in various ways given different circumstances, time or 0ther aspects.

  • janetteB replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @oochillyo Our boys were young when Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead first aired and they were terrified of those episodes too. It was some years before we could watch them. I don’t blame them either. The threat that cannot be seen is one of the most frightening in all of Who and I can see how the idea of children who are not real…[Read more]

    @janetteB thank you for your kind welcome, I am very happy that this discussion is very much loved its great to hear everyone’s thoughts on wonderful episodes they love for various reasons.

    I recently watched Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead and it was soo thrilling, I remember as a kid it scared me very much but I often said ‘who…[Read more]

    Hi all,

    Hope everyone is well and getting through these tough times. The news is grim and getting grimmer. Here in Oz we are watching the headlines every day with suspended breath, and keeping fingers crossed that the border will hold but it is a very large border to patrol and Melbourne is only eight hours away. Some of our local small…[Read more]

    @oochillyo Welcome to the forum and thank you for starting up a discussion. I do like Gridlock. Certainly up there in the favourites list however like @winston I cannot pick a particular favourite. I have so many favourites including Blink and Vincent which we re-watched recently. My other favourites include Heaven Sent, The Empty Child and the…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @oochillyo   I also like Gridlock for its humour and montage and for the ending where the Doctor finally tells Martha about his home. A rewatch makes me happy-happy too!

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Those are 2 very good episodes and also some of my favourites for different reasons. Blink out and out scares me! The characters are great but the Angels ar…[Read more]

    @oochillyo

    I am tempted to say “Blink”, as it is a brilliantly conceived and realized story, but my heart goes with “Vincent and the Doctor”. I just “speaks” to me on every level, and I love the way it reaffirms the premise of of early Hartnell-era Who that you cannot change the past. I have always been a bit ambivalent about the way the show…[Read more]

  • Oochillyo replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    hey @winston , I haven’t seen Rose fully but I know many love it, my fav episode of the modern series is GridLock and I know its not everyones cup of tea but I believe it was the first if not one of the first episodes I saw of Doctor Who and I loved it then as the Doctor was awesome, the cars looked cool, the Macra were scary and soo many reasons…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Hello @oochillyo  and welcome to the site. I love Doctor Who and when people ask which episode is my favourite my head starts to swell as I try to narrow it down to one episode. I think it always changes for me depending on which Doctor I am watching at the time and so many other things. If I was forced to pick one (maybe by tickling or…[Read more]

  • Oochillyo replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Quite a nice interview with Colin Baker. He is spot on about the end of the 50th. It’s funny how Colin’s reflections on the show seem to outshine Colin’s performance on the show…
