  • Just to be clear, cumquat is not a sock puppet of me, but probably is a sock puppet of someone here.

    See how nobody cares?

    Binge watch clever DVDs would be my advice. Start with Rectify and you’ll understand, magically, the point of the penultimate episode (that means second-to-last)

    @cumquat I can only apologise (and thus compound the wrong) but, like @idiotsavon, I can only say, I try, but I fail. For example, while I flexed my fingers over my laptop with the purpose of pouring out a torrent of abuse in response to your posting, I have all but lost control of my fingers which insist on asking you:

    Anyone remember Blakes 7 ? Terry Nation wrote for that too.

    @miapatrick Well Chibnall wrote episode 10 and in my book it’s one of the better episodes of this season, but really does not say much at all as this is easily the worst season ever. He has little to no talent IMHO.
    As for the directing of episode 9 the scenes with Ribbons, the moths etc dreadful. When he goes for the “tubular” and gets killed.…[Read more]

    Most of the Doctors could talk the hind leg off a donkey, but one thing I suddenly realised last night was that they talked about how wonderful they were. It was, in fact, called out a couple of times, with jokes that they really needed a companion to make admiring noises.

    The Whittaker Doctor, on the other hand, talks through everything,…[Read more]

    So i watched this episode twice, the first time i was watching it i had some distractions and missed a few key points, and was iffy on what i thought about it and that there was also something in the back of the mind bothering me about it, but couldn’t figure it out.

    Just finished watching it the second time around and i very much liked it, it…[Read more]

    “this propensity to civility and this use of reason in the development of an argument”

    Oh come on now that’s a bit strong. Did it never occur to you that some of us on here might not be the polite, reasonable people you take us for? Maybe we’re just really, really incompetent trolls.

    I come on here with every intention of trolling. It…[Read more]

  • @rob – About the Doctor seeming to talk too much, I think that’s partly how JW wants to demonstrate 13’s energy level.

    I know I’ve read criticisms that too many episodes have too much standing around and talking.  I have a feeling both are related.  I read somewhere that the Tennant, Smith and Capaldi all ended up with the same knee injury.  I’…[Read more]

  • @rob  This is one of the good things that has come out of the regeneration it makes you think about equality,  hopefully it will make me a better person just by making me think about it.

    I’d say so — one of the clear signs of a knee-jerk reactionary is automatic outrage at the fact that The Contentious Issue *has been raised* — “SJW!  …[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Mrs Blenkinsop and I just watched the last episode of series 10 . . . Looking back on that episode, I feel that Moffat could not simply do grand emotion, but grand emotion that was almost operatic.

    Nothing “almost” about it — I think it’s the operatic intensity that really caught me up in the Moffat era, because I am a…[Read more]

    Morning All

    Overall I enjoyed the episode.

    I missed the lights on the planet so ended the programme thinking Tim Shaw had destroyed 5 planets and every living thing on them. No evidence of light coming from the stasis planets either, just bits of rock in a capsule, no water, no ice no atmosphere all at odds with the stasis chambers used for…[Read more]

  • Finally got to see it, and…well, to be honest, I was not all that impressed. Yes, I could see what they were saying about “you have to be better than that” with regard to Graham. But I really think that was done so much better by Chibnall in the Sulurian two-parter.

    As for the Ux—I didn’t get any feel for their uniqueness or importance. We were…[Read more]

  • A ok episode, but like what a lot of people already said , it is underwhelming for final episode.

    As a troll and hater, I am very distressed to being forced to write again to this distressingly “intelligent” (such a terrible word) group. It has been three years since I was forced to express my profound concerns about the appallingly civil tone of communication on this site. At the time, I pointed out (in a way that was clear to all right thi…[Read more]
