    @bluesqueakpip and @blenkinsopthebrave It turns out I even posted a comment on that thread but I had not rewatched the story so my memory is not entirely shot. Must be time I remedied that. There are several early Hartnell stories which I have only seen the once.

    Cheers

    @craig  No problem, I have a bunch of Who to watch and a whole lot of time on my hands so I can certainly wait. I hope everything in your life goes smoothly, these days its the most we can ask for.

    @Cathannabel.  I’m  so sorry. It’s, as He says, sudden. And what a terrific talent she had!  This reminds me of news in Aus -a RC into Aged Care. The stories -the truths are horrible. But that’s for another day…a different discussion. She obviously inspired  many people and it’s wonderful to know that. What people are capable of, or were, onc…[Read more]

    @winston @thane16 @pedant Many thanks.  And @pedant – that Buffy quote has come to mind so often lately, it just sums up the experience of losing someone, at whatever stage of life and in whatever circumstances.  It’s always sudden.

    @blenkinsopthebrave @bluesqueakpip, @thane16, @winston, @janetteb, @cathannabel,

    I’m afraid I’m currently having to deal with some personal matters but normal service should be resumed in March. Hopefully you can wait until then.

    We still have a short Chibnall retrospective to do, and a whole host of female Timelord stories lined up too.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @bluesqueakpip   Thanks for the heads up on the Time Meddler. I looked and found the discussions right where they should be. Now I need to find the episodes and watch them because they look good. Maybe we can find an episode we have not re-watched , I am open to anything.

  • @cathannabel

    So sorry for your loss – even though in some ways the release from Alzheimer’s could be seen as a mercy, it is still brutal when it comes,

    Buffy: Was it sudden?

    Tara: No…..Yes – it’s always sudden.

    Equally sorry – and the Ogdon would’ve been marvellous.

    Love to you all.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH BLUE SQUEAK PIP. I AM YOUR DEBT.

  • Bluesqueakpip replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @archaicwhovian

    They’re short for Before Gap and After Gap. The Gap is the over-long period when Who wasn’t being produced. After Gap starts with the episode Rose.

    Other sites refer to Classic Who and New Who, but we felt that identifying an era by whether it was before or after the Gap was more value-neutral.

    @blenkinsopthebrave, @janetteB and @winston

    The one slight problem is that we’ve already watched and discussed it, about four years back. I think it was one of the first Hartnells we watched. And we can’t really do the Dalek Master Plan because it’s mostly lost. There’s nothing to stop a second rewatch – the conversations are already set…[Read more]

  • ArchaicWhovian replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    Now, while I feel that I rival most in Whovian authenticity within my local area (at least that’s what I like to think), I feel at loss due to the fact that I constantly come across references which are new to me that is familiar with everyone else. Among these. I find that the terms B.G. and A.G. get tossed around quite a bunch around here. What…[Read more]

    @cathannabel  I am sorry for your loss. The service you describe sounds beautiful and I am glad it brought you good memories of a woman who sounds very interesting and accomplished.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I think that would be a great idea and it could spark some new conversations. I shall see if I can find it at my library.

    @blenkinsopthebrave. I second that suggestion. The Meddling Monk was a fun story. I always enjoy the “history” episodes though I was not so sure that the Monk’s meddling, had it succeeded would have necessarily been such a bad thing. I suspect my Cumbrian ancestors would have preferred the alternate history that would have resulted. (That is if my…[Read more]

    @craig, @bluesqueakpip, @thane16, @winston, @janetteb, @cathannabel, and, well, everybody

    I mentioned this before, but, I think it would be a great idea if we could have a discussion about Dr Who again. After all, that is why we are here.

    So @craig, (and everyone) what about “The Meddling Monk”?

     

  • Cath Annabel replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @thane16  Thanks for the thoughts!  It seems appropriate to talk about my mum-in-law (who died just before New Year) on this particular forum (she’s had a mention or two elsewhere, mainly in relation to the challenge of watching the Christmas special with her after the dementia set in and her attention span was somewhat erratic), as she was a m…[Read more]
