    @missy  I thought I might get stuck into The Thick of It soon too. I need to get my Peter Capaldi fix somehow and I keep falling asleep during The  Musketeers.

    @ichabod;

    How well you know me. *grins* Loving it.

    @conchobarre:

    I know what you mean. However I didn’t fall asleep during the Musketeers, my OH and I really like it. If you haven;t already, do try to see In the Loop – hilarious!

    Laurence Wilson @laurencewilson

    Can anyone help me, please? I’m looking for a decent image of the logo or emblem that the Daleks put on the Robomen in the Dalek Invasion of the Earth. They look like letters, spread across the chest and I think in other places in the story.
    Much appreciate any help.

    Hi all

    Is there a place around here for spinoff shows (other than Class)? I thought I saw Sarah Jane and Torchwood forums here, but I could be wrong.  I ask because I’ve finally started watching Torchwood Season 3 and I’m getting excited about how much better it seems than the first two seasons.

    We decided to re-watch Prime Suspect (Helen Mirren) the ther evening. Imagine our surprise when Peter Capaldi

    took part as a Transvestite!  He looked wonderful, very attractive, but his nose was wrong.  No bump.

    This actor is able to be completely different in every role he plays

    @missy  I did see this a few years back before I knew Peter Capaldi but I do remember the episode. I will most definately have a rewatch when I can get it at our library.Thanks for the heads up.

    @missy  Sorry , I forgot to say that I watched all 5 seasons of Ripper Street and enjoyed all of them all. Every dark ,dreary alley way and all the colorful characters kept me entertained for the whole 5 seasons. I only wish they were making more.

    @winston:

    I believe it’s series 3.  I wonder if he really sings too?

    @winston:

    Yes, me too. Just finished seeing Drake murdered.

    Watched new comedy TimeWasters on ITV2 last night. The first episode is about a time-travelling lift and contains a Time Lord joke. The 2nd episode has a sly ‘Doomsday’ reference which made me smile.

    Tonight it’s new Red Dwarf on Dave…

    I thought this would be the right place to post.

    Just now I watched clips of Peter Capaldi playing  Leonardo da Vinci. And  Machiavelli in “Who’s afraid of Machiavelli.”

    Impressive and enjoylable.

    Hi i have a copy of the doctor who bluray season 1, but i nootice that the sides have been cut and it is not full 16:9 aspect ratio, it has small black bars at the side about 1cm from each side. But on the original air of the show, it was broadcast in 16:9 with not black bars, can anybody else confirm their bluray is also not 1080p 16:9.

    Also yes i tested it and it is cut off you can see parts missing form the sides.

    Thank You.

    Now that P Cap is no longer the Dr, he’s allowed to swear again…

    Urgh those accents!! (Eastern Staters..) thanks for the link @wolfweed. We don’t watch free to air, with good reason so would not have caught this otherwise. I would love to let Capaldi/tucker loose on our incompetents in Canberra though I suspect even his invective would be inadequate.
    Cheers

    The CW released the official synopsis, promotional photos and videos for Season 2 Episode 20 of Riverdale – Shadow of a Doubt, airing May 2nd.

    For the non-UK viewers (and for that matter the UK viewers yet to see it) take the earliest opportunity you can to watch A Very English Scandal, a three-parter by RTD.

    It tells the story of how the 1960s/ 70s leader of the British Liberal Party, Jeremy Thorpe, tried to cover up a homosexual affair (which at the time would have been illegal) by hiring a someone to kill his lover. Despite being acquitted (following a horrifically partial judge’s summing up, famously lampooned by Peter Cook – check youtube) he was politically ruined. The story can only be told in this way now that he is dead.

    There are, of course, some very RTD flourishes and a lead performance by Hugh Grant that may be his finest ever.

    It will win loads of awards, and rightly so.

    Still not convinced about the mid-1970s police driving Morris Minors, though….

    Wouldn’t that be hilarious, the would wonder what had hit them!

    @pedantA Very English Scandal,

    Yes, I want to see this, I remember the affair quite well. Not keen on Hugh Grant, but he seems to have made a good effort. Ben Whishaw is always extraordinary, no matter what he does. Did anyone see The Hour?

    janetteB @janetteb

    @missy yes indeed. Am still grumpy that it was cancelled while shows like Poldark just go on and on. (I enjoyed the first series for what it was, lightweight sunny entertainment but by series 2 the plot was getting a bit frayed. Season three it started snapping.)

    Hugh Grant, is capable of acting. He just got badly type cast after Four Weddings and fell into a rut. He was a fine Doctor, for the two or so minutes he had in the role. (Curse of Fatal Death) Good to see him demonstrating what he is capable of again. Agree Ben is an amazing actor.

    Cheers

    As for Poldark………enough said! *grins*

    Finally got around to watching A Very English Scandal. Must see TV with lots of laugh out loud moments.

    (Murray Gold did the music & Eve Myles plays someone called Gwen. Jason Watkins and Adrian Scarborough also appear.)

    This documentary followed and might also be interesting to viewers.

    @pedant  Thanks. Never seen that before. What a paragon of impartiality…
