    @whisht Love that idea: the “Fog Bank.”  Not to harm anyone’s choice of song or one’s own.

    People choose what they are offended by.

    @missy – if you choose to be offended by people referring to themselves as Ms or actress etc then absolutely that’s your choice.

    If others choose to be offended by those things as they recognise them as demeaning women as being less than men and gay people as being less than straight people, then that’s…[Read more]

    The usual sources. It might be on Netflix or Amazon Prime (or other streaming services) in your area, and is certainly available on Bluray/DVD it most regions.

    @missy So sorry to hear about your troubles. Best wishes from me too.

  • janetteB replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @nerys agreed. I hated being called, “Miss” just as much as I detest being called “Mrs”. Both make me cringe. The distinctions in title are also inconvenient. I was once working in a pollie’s office addressing mail and did not know what to put on letters going out to women, Miss, Mrs or Ms because I know some older women get offended by the later.…[Read more]

  • nerys replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @missy So, what is the difference between an actor and an actress? If the only difference is the sex of the one doing the acting, then it strikes me as a silly distinction. I’m fine with calling them all actresses, as long as everyone gets the same designation. (Though, from a linguistic standpoint, words ending in -er or -or have a sensible…[Read more]

    @missy Please don’t worry about thanking me. But (being horribly redundant), thank you for thinking of it. Being all over the place is very, very understandable in your circumstances. Blood clots in his lungs? Oh no, that’s serious. I’m sure you are going through unbearable stress right now.

    Did I thank you too?  if not Thank you.

    I’m all over the place at the moment.

  • Missy replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @nerys

    Because they are actresses. Why not call actors actresses?

    Mind you, I could never understand some females getting uptight about being called Miss if single. Ms is just plain daft, and mean the same thing as Miss.

    Thank you so much, I truly do appreciate it.

    We are trying to move home to a smaller house, so you can imagine the chaos. Our children are wonderful,

    as I said to my OH, “we must have brung ’em up right!”

    @mudlark

    thank you so much for the detailed reply. I’m looking all over the place for ‘the Day of the doctor’ , ‘night of the doctor’ and ‘Christmas Special’. Do I need to watch these before starting S8E1?

     

    @pedant

    where can I find these three episodes on the inters of net? 😭

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

    @pedant Yes just saw that. David Tennant is also doing a cover of the Proclaimers’ Sunshine on Leith. I am always envious of actors that cannot only act but also sing. I abandoned my dream of studying acting at Uni when I found out that the audition included a singing component. I would have had no chance at all.

    Cheers

    You are not alone in being banjaxed by S7. Netflix had completely the wrong running order, with Day of the Doctor erroneously at the end of S8, and did have Time of the Doctor.

    Until *cough* somebody *cough* patiently explained it to a CS helper…, much like @mudlark has done for you.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    There are only 13 episodes in season* 7, episode 13 being The Name of the Doctor. In addition to these  there are two specials for the same year; the 50th anniversary special ‘The Day of the Doctor’ which aired on 23rd November 2013, the anniversary of the day in 1963 on which the first ever episode of D…[Read more]

    Hello all, consider me slow but I’m only on season 7 so no spoilers pls. BUT please guide me for I am lost. Up to S7E13 is all I found, so where is 14,15,16 at? How does the Christmas special come into play in all this? (The episode where all the Dr.’s are supposed to be?)
