    … so I just rewatched Sleep No More

    Reminiscent of 42 and Under the Lake in places. Particularly with all the dark gloomy/grimy corridors. Interesting concept, but I think it had a few shortcomings in the execution. It was all quite hard to follow and I felt, lacked some of the wit and sparkle of dialogue that many other episodes in this season…[Read more]

    @winston     I don’t think we were ever intended to know which is the ‘real’ Osgood – if, in fact, she’s even still alive.   The Osgoods themselves don’t think it is a valid question.   I wonder whether Steven Moffatt actually ‘knows’ – or has he never bothered to work it out (in his mind)?   We know one of them is ex-Bonnie (but we don’t kno…[Read more]

    Okay, a nice pile of snow is probably quite a good cushion.

    I jumped off a roof once, onto grass.   When I was a student, at engineering school, the student hostel was old single-storey wooden buildings.   There was a water-fight going on and I was cornered by the ‘enemy’.   Amazingly, I landed without breaking anything – just as some sneak…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  These were excellent episodes. The speech the Doctor made had me in tears and if I watch it again I will cry again. It was very powerful and Capaldi is so good.

    There was a lot of discussion back then about who was the real Osgood but I can’t remember if we ever knew the answer.

    The cyberman binge may have to wait while I…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent    We are getting more snow today , so more shoveling tomorrow but not the roof..  The Mr. uses a snow scoop on a flat part of our roof and the rake on the rest. We only have to do it if we get huge amounts of snow or if it is going to freeze rain on top of the snow making it too heavy. We have only one story and after all this sno…[Read more]

    And so I just watched the Zygon Invasion/Inversion.   Absolute cracker of a (double) episode!     (I stuck my random comments on the pages for those episodes).

    I think overall this was the best season. Only one really weak ep (Sleep No More). Every other ep rates at least a ‘good’ in my estimation, and the Daleks and Zygon two-parters and the e…[Read more]

    This starts off really well, with Clara waking up – the numbers on her bedside clock are reversed, her toothpaste is labelled ‘This is toothpaste’ (and is black) – her subconscious is trying to tip her off that her ‘world’ is being generated by the Zygon pod that imprisons her. Reminiscent of Last Christmas, but sufficiently different that it…[Read more]

    My quick impressions of The Zygon Invasion –

    So we’ve had the [multiple] Doctors, and now we have (ta-daaah!) The Two Osgoods. Fascinating premise to base an episode on. Actually, we only have one Osgood now, because Missy killed one of them. But the remaining Osgood is obsessive and geeky enough to keep the faith. And then there were none…

    … and I just watched The Woman Who Lived

    I have to love the Knightmare’s justified indignation at having ‘his’ robbery rudely derailed by the Doctor. (Reminds me of “I’m robbing you!” from Ruthless People  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6lNDrCi88 )

    Nice reveal when the Knightmare turns out to be Ashildr! But it is rather tragic when she thinks the…[Read more]

    @nerys   No, I didn’t visualise wheels on the roof rake!   🙂    But I did wonder about the snow scoop.   I guess, if it’s sliding on snow, it wouldn’t need wheels.   If you were trying to clear the last of the snow off your driveway, then I guess wheels might be of some use.   But my experience with snow is virtually nil, our nearest snow (in win…[Read more]

    Was having a browse on YouTube about the various postings about when they are going to announce the actors/actresses identity earlier and given that RTD is supposedly going to start principle/pre  production in Feb it got me to thinking we know there are 2 more specials for Jodie but are they going to do a Xmas/new year special as the new docs…[Read more]

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

    @dentarthurdent No wheels on the roof rake; just a wide, narrow shovel blade attached to a long, (often) extendable handle. The shovel blade part carves off the snow as you pull it down the roof toward you. If you Google “roof rake,” you should see photos of the contraption. This article from Erie, Pa., shows someone doing it. Our roof rake…[Read more]
