    @cathannabel @miapatrick @whisht

    Many thanks – have marked them both as spammers. It does seem to be the case that, because there is “Doctor” in the site name they think we might be interested in their dodgy medication. They take the time to sign up, and add a profile pic. But they don’t take the time to work out what the site is about!


    @cathannabel @miapatrick @whisht

    That apparently random text is to try to evade spam filters. You see that sort of thing in spam email quite often (although less than you used to).

    ltia @ltia

    Wow! I chose a crazy time to join the forum, then!

    I must confess I originally signed up for Gallifrey Base (having read a lot of Gallifrey one years ago – those reviews were brilliant as I was rediscovering the show). I’ve been in the moderation queue for a month, though. I think I can understand why, now! Terrible time to join, really… but I’d like to talk a bit of Doctor Who and the ‘outside world’ has gone completely mad.

    I should point out that I’m definitely not a troll or a bot or anything. No, really. Honest. I’m very nice. 🙂

    Lovely name, btw. It’s a great place. We’re not AS busy as we were a few weeks ago – can’t believe the NY special was nearly a month ago.

    Welcome, you’ll have a blast

    Thane16 and Puro

    syzygy @thane16


    I have a Marie Cooper from the US  ‘army’ giving me her private email wanting to reveal information 🙂


    Craig @craig

    @thane16 @kevinwho and everyone else. Apologies as always. I have marked our new friend as a spammer. (sorry for the delay but I was asleep – I have to sleep, sometimes) 🙂

    Please do not respond to their emails. I have quite a tight ‘bot’ stricture on this site, but if a human signs up and posts nonsense messages then I’m kinda at your mercy. Thank you, you lovely people, for letting me know.

    Melody22411 @melodyhughes

    Hi, I just wanted to know everyones opinion, I am 19, and every since I was a very young girl, I have been obsessed with the doctor, never missed an episode, then season 6, episode 7 arrived, ‘a good man goes to war’. The episode where Riversong was born, but what shocked me the most was, her birth name was Melody, my name, you can imagine 11  year old me was speechless, Melody isn’t a common name at all, clearly this is just a coincidence, or is it??? 

    Mudlark @mudlark


    A dubious entity calling itself Elizabeth Barron has just messaged me, purporting to be a wealthy widow on the point of popping her clogs who wants my assistance in distributing her millions to the needy. Why am I suspicious of this philanthropy 🙄

    Miapatrick @miapatrick

    A very rich dying widow has asked for my assistance in distributing her fortune via private message on here…

    Devilishrobby @devilishrobby

    Same here to be honest I generally just ignore thes sick SOBs and delete the messages

    Craig @craig

    Thanks all – now marked as a spammer.

    By the way, am hoping regular service will restart this Saturday I’ve had a lot going on but it’s almost over. Thankfully.

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @craig, @bluesqueakpip, or anyone who can solve the issue, I suspect that I am not the only person to receive an email from Elizabeth who wants to share her fortune…

    Bluesqueakpip @bluesqueakpip

    @craig @blenkinsopthebrave @mudlark @devilishrobby @miapatrick

    Apparently, Elizabeth thinks we’re a dating site. Are we a dating site? I didn’t know we were a dating site.

    I’ve been doing this all wrong….


    Miapatrick @miapatrick

    @bluesqueakpip if it’s a dating site, it’s not a very good dating site. I’ve yet to receive a single unsolicited (or solicited, for obvious reasons) photograph of genitalia. (Or then again, maybe that makes it a very good dating site after all).


    @craig @jimthefish

    I think dfhghdfg05 might be a spammer. Just a hunch.

    And hbfdxcvnfghdgdf

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave


    It seems that Kayla wants to get to know me. Unfortunately, I don’t really want to get to know Kayla. I am sure others on the site may be experiencing the same.

    Craig @craig

    Hi @blenkinsopthebrave Yes I’ve marked her/him as a spammer, and the next person who also registered with the same email domain right after I spammed them.

    Some nights it’s like whack-a-mole!


    @craig @jimthefish

    I suspect I’m not the only one to get a very tempting offer from Kayla Noyes, who if she is in the USA as claimed I’m Chinese.

    Also, we seem to have acquired a bevvy of Indian removal firms…

    Craig @craig

    @pedant I got a message from Kayla too – so she’s been dealt with. Sorry but I’ve been busy with real world stuff but will try to get back to the site properly soon, including removal firms (although I have to wonder what they have to gain)

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @craig Ah, Kayla–she is persistent, isn’t she?

    @pedant How do I know that you are not Chinese?



    Sheee’s baaaaack…


    I am fairly sure I would be less inept at using chopsticks.

    syzygy @thane16


    I’ve had several emails from  a number of sweet young ladies with many important and urgent things to discuss.

    As well as items for removal -should I wish it. Frankly, I’d be thrilled down to my bootstraps if they would remove  carpet from d’house and take it to waste disposal. Heck, they can have the old wet mattresses from d’Christensan flood which happens nearly every 4 years (that would be a quadrennial?)  🙂 @miapatrick: you’ve had unsolicited pix of genitalia? I’m in awe!




    syzygy @thane16

    ignore my bloated, unsuccessful attempt at an unusual emoji.



    Devilishrobby @devilishrobby

    Hmmm I think alicefran thinks this is a dating site


    toinfinityandbepond @toinfinityandbepond

    There was a franciscoalice back in november,

    syzygy @thane16

    @devilishrobby @toinfinityandbepond

    Hmm, yes, unless she’s looking for a personal doctor -a person all to herself 🙂

    Also, good to see both of you back!

    I’m old Puro with Thane16 who decided to change our name. Again 😉

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @thane16, @craig

    Hi Syzygy the elder–or, indeed Puro (the incomparable),

    l seem to to be still courted by Kayla. Not that I want to be, of course.

    p.s. Has your name changed as you indicate? Has mine? Mrs Blenkinsop still seems to recognize me, and to be honest, that is all that matters.


    syzygy @thane16


    Greetings from our Brisbane winter -alright, it’s spring, but just & yesterday was 31 & today 34! Madness.

    Yet the non-experts ignore the discussion about “what are we going to do about….global warming?” [singing this to Sound of Music’s “what are we ….about Maria?”]

    I wrote that all-a-muck 😉  I was thinking that toinfinityandbepond  and devilishrobby might not know me as the Puro, of old, what with Thane’s suggestion of “syzygy” which is a concept he takes great delight in. But yes, other than a few kilograms and pounds here and there, we’re still recognised -which is what matters, as you say.

    And here, we mostly tend to speaking up -or standing up ‘in front’ of our computer rather than hiding behind it?

    I get the impression people are relatively honest (Ahem), even those who want to move my furniture (one of the spammers), or date me/us. I somehow think the lady who had several million dollars to share, might have been telling a little fib. 😉



    @craig @jimthefish

    I don’t think Dr Sachin Gupta is the right kind of Doctor…

    RorySmith @rorysmith

    Warming is real. I expected fall temps already but hitting 90s f. Not happy. I’m eastern US

    @syzygy I have had many contacts trying to get information from me  however, what’s your story?



    @craig @jimthefish

    I think it is time for a new sofa. Let’s go all in with the pink dayglo this time.

    The TV thread is getting there too.


    @craig @jimthefish

    Spammer in the house  – jonnysimpkin123

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @craig, @fatmaninabox, or any other Time Lords out there,

    could we have another On the Sofa page for Christmas…?


    nerys @nerys

    Someone is advertising his web design business here.

    Craig @craig

    Hi all. Like The Doctor, I have returned on New Year’s Day. Apologies for abandoning you all for a while, and many thanks to those of you who were concerned – it is nice to know you care. I’m fine, just … y’know … stuff happens sometimes. Anyway, a new series is a good reason to get motivated again. I hope it will be great, and that the new year will be great for all of you.



    welcome back to the land of the living(-ish).

    Speaking of living-ish, a forum for Dracula?

    Devilishrobby @devilishrobby

    @craig is there a way of unfollowing a thread if not I wish there were not that I don’t enjoy reading the threads it just my email inbox would appreciate it lol. (Lol when will I learn not to tick the notify me of follow up replies on the episode threads)

    Craig @craig

    @devilishrobby I’m afraid I think you have to make a post and untick the box when you do so.

    But many people have done that in the past. You know – “Just posting so I can stop getting notifications from this thread”, or words to that effect.

    blenkinsopthebrave @blenkinsopthebrave

    @craig, @jimthefish, @phaseshift

    Is there any chance of a new page for “TV Shows”?

    The page is in use again and it is way overdue for an upgrade.


    Craig @craig

    @blenkinsopthebrave Many thanks for pointing that out – had gone completely unnoticed.

    New thread is up now at:

    General Open Thread – TV Shows (3)

    And also available via the link on the Home page, as usual.

    Bluesqueakpip @bluesqueakpip


    We seem to have a spammer. Name of Johnson, though I don’t know if they have a blond mop-top.

    Craig @craig

    Hi @bluesqueakpip Yes, I got an email too. Have just dealt with them. Strangely enough (or not), they had a .ru address.

    Bluesqueakpip @bluesqueakpip


    Clearly this is going to be one of those days. A Caitlin Gosling has joined and her first post consists entirely of one link. In the Peter Capaldi as Twelfth Doctor forum.

    Davros @davros

    I just posted in the On The Sofa (10) thread: it doesn’t appear in the General Forum list (whereas On The Sofa (9) and On The Sofa (8) do). Perhaps this is a fault, or perhaps I’m doing something wrong.

    Craig @craig

    Hi @davros Thank you for pointing that out – my bad, I forgot to give it a category.

    All fixed now.

    toinfinityandbepond @toinfinityandbepond

    got message from a Render Morgan, US Army no less, who has important business to discuss…

    Craig @craig

    @toinfinityandbepond Thank you. I’ve marked them as spammer, so won’t happen again. At least from them.

    As I’ve said before, I can’t stop this happening once in a while, unfortunately. It’s not automated. There’s a human behind it who has to set up an account, maybe upload a picture (as they did here), then send the message.

    BeeMartha @beemartha

    hey everyone xx

    I’m curious to know who your top 3 Doctors of all time are because mine are

    1. The War Doctor John Hurt in 2013
    2. The Tenth Doctor David Tennant in 2005-2010
    3. The Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith 2010-2013

    I just think these doctors had the most exciting adventures and I love the personalities who are your top 3 ????



    Missy @missy


    Hello there, at last one I can respond to.

    1. Peter Capaldi

    2. David Tennant

    3. Christopher Eccleston.


    BeeMartha @beemartha

    @missy 😂😂 I know the feeling I’m new on the site

    I must agree i did enjoy them do tell me  why are they your top 3
