    So Happy 4th of July.

    I watched the Wattstax doc recently and so am on a bit of a funk thang.

    This is just fun (and I seem to recognise lines and samples from it maybe)

    simply enjoy!

    A belated Happy Canada Day to @winston, @nerys, @blenkinsopthebrave, and everyone in Canada! I hope everyone in the UK and around the world is keeping safe and sane through all the upheaval of 2020. Strange and exhausting times. And for tomorrow, wishing a happy and, most importantly, safe Fourth of July to all our American friends. Virtual hugs to all.

    Happy Canada Day, @winston @blenkinsopthebrave and all our other Canadian friends. I have yet to visit Canada but I have a great, great, great grandfather buried in Canada. The story is that when his wife died he came to Australia to visit the son who immigrated here then went to Canada to visit the other sons and daughter who had gone to Canada…[Read more]

    Happy Canada Day. Been a long time since I was in Canada but I always had a good time there.

    A Canadian, Sydney Newman, was the driving force behind the creation of Doctor Who.

    @winston, @nerys, @arbutus,

    Happy Canada Day to all!

    As you know, I am an immigrant. And a very happy immigrant. Where I live, neighbours haven’t simply hung out Canadian flags, they have hung out flags with the heart instead of the maple leaf to show support–not simply for those on the covid front line, but for all of us.

    I would not want to…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   @nerys  and @arbutus   To my fellow Canucks… Happy Canada Day.  We live in a beautiful and country , I have driven it from coast to coast and no matter how long you have you can never see it all. It is vast, and yet the people make it cozy. We have oceans and lakes and mountains and prairies and frozen tundra, heck we have…[Read more]

    Really sad to hear that about Louis Mahoney. He was a great character actor in film and television over the years. And a major figure in advancing actors of colour.

    He could put so much emotion into that short scene in Blink.

    RIP.

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

    Louis Mahoney, the Gambian-born actor who played three different Doctor Who roles, has just died. He played Old Billy Shipton in the 10th Doctor story “Blink” and Ponti in the 4th Doctor story “Planet of Evil”, both of them memorable stories. He also appeared briefly as a newscaster in a 3rd Doctor story “Frontier in Space”.
    Coincidentally, he…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave that is impressive. I knew Bob Baker wrote for Dr Who but did not know he also contributed to Wallace and Gromit.

    We watched The Three Doctors last year. I recall enjoying it. It does establish formulas for future multi doctor stories.

    Cheers

    What doesn’t make sence to me is how the doctor is going to get out of prizon in the next series. Also this series has been so different to the ones in the past. There has been a very constant theme throughtout all the episodes instead of fighting different creatures everytime. The first series of Matt Smith asthe doctor also had a theme but the…[Read more]

    While watching The Three Doctors, I noticed it was co-written by Bob Baker. I thought to myself: Surely, I know that name. I looked him up to discover that besides writing a bunch of Who stories in the 1970s he was also the co-writer of the Wallace and Gromit stories.

    Crikey, what a claim to fame! To have written both Doctor Who AND Wallace and…[Read more]

    Mrs Blenkinsop and I have just watched the final two episodes of The Three Doctors…just great! I had completely forgotten about it given that so many years (decades…?) had passed, but it worked really well.

    Mrs Blenkinsop’s reflection was very interesting….that the fight (ie, the actual slow motion fight) between the Pertwee Doctor and…[Read more]

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

    Mrs Blenkinsop just started watching (well, re-watching, after many years) The Three Doctors. Great stuff! Had not realised how much Moffat drew on it for the 50th anniversary. Is it the first time one Doctor says to the other: “I see you’ve been redecorating…I don’t like it.”? Even the way they keep the (obviously ageing and ill Hartnell)…[Read more]

    Oh, and if I have to see John Simm grinning and mugging frantically for the camera one more time, I will shoot myself.

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

    On Dr. Who: The series seems have suffered a bit lately. It started with the twelfth Dr. 1.) The writing has become ponderous, too much flexing posing and shouting. 2.) Too many characters in general, way too many companions. 3.) Continuing a story through many episodes has its plusses and minuses. Plus, if the story is good. Not a plus if the…[Read more]
