    I wept like a baby. This Doctor, with her make-it-herself attitude, science lessons, trust in her companions, and love – yet, by golly, still fierce in protection, I’m hooked.

  • ardaraith replied to the topic The Tsuranga Conundrum

    I’ve got nothing to add, except to say I am thoroughly enjoying this new era.  I like the storytelling and focus on relationships, each story offers learning opportunities,  and portrays problem solving through team-work.  It might lack the excessively complex inner show referencing of the Moffat era, which lent itself to theorizing, but I end ea…[Read more]

  • ardaraith replied to the topic Arachnids In The UK

    Yea, I’m sold.  I have enjoyed every one of the new episodes.  This one was scary, emotional, sciency, and funny.  I really like that the Doctor got explicit consent from the companions about coming along (and the TARDIS even watched for and observed this with that big blue geometric shape).  I was overjoyed to see bubble wrap in the time vor…[Read more]

    @rob and @miapatrick I also thought Graham was going to drive the bus.  His utter despair standing there at the end was gut wrenching.  And Ryan, such a good hearted kid, being spoken to like that…. my heart hurt. I cried multiple times during this one.

    I am really enjoying the humanity of these episodes.

     

  • ardaraith replied to the topic The Ghost Monument

    Better and better! Ryan reminds me of my son, I just love him.  When he was going to take out the aliens like the video game and then ran back screaming – perfect pitch of innocent little boy.  I wept when the TARDIS found her!  and she said she loved her!! :squee:  The theme of people working together, oh how we need that in our world right now…[Read more]

  • ardaraith replied to the topic The Woman Who Fell To Earth

    Joining the chorus to say I loved it.   I enjoyed getting to know the future reluctant companions early on with the Doctor nowhere in sight.  I really cared about them. I liked seeing the Doctor from the point-of-view of the humans. That was a breath of fresh air, and really lent a bit of strangeness to the Doctor.  Seeing the Doctor off in the…[Read more]

    After taking time to compose myself, I feel I am missing the meaning of several things, such as the writing on the wall and the sand circle with arrows.

    I am beyond excited, though!

    Creepy! And reminiscent of something I can’t put my finger on. Perhaps it reminded me of the weeping angels and the great intelligence, simultaneously. I am not entirely sure I understand what I just saw.

    Second time the Doctor has said grumpy things about humans…at least, recently.

    Another inversion….at the end, Clara was the one operating the TARDIS controls. All the Doctor did was pull down the handle, then walk away.

    Anyone else find that odd?

    What is that quote?

    @Bluesqueakpip

    and that throw-away…You’re the one who keeps running away.  ouch.

    Shush…mummy’s talking

    I see family issues all over this!

  • ardaraith replied to the topic The Witch’s Familiar

    He gave it to her when she had her daughter?!?

  • ardaraith replied to the topic Listen

    I was chatting to my daughter tonight and she proposed the most bonkers theory of all…….

    ready?

    Clara is the TARDIS!!

    Clara was able to go to Gallifrey, even though its time-locked and outside the universe.  Clara wears an infinity loop on her cardi.  She went into the Doctor’s time-stream inside the TARDIS.  There have been several re…[Read more]

  • ardaraith replied to the topic Listen

    I absolutely enjoyed that! It was creepy, scary, clever, and surprising.  If I were a child, I wouldn’t be able to sleep alone for ages! (Ok, maybe as an adult, too :gulp:)

    The little girl at school who gives Clara trouble, and Danny seems connected to (can’t recall her name), appears destined for significance. She reminded me of a mouthy River.…[Read more]

  • ardaraith replied to the topic The Time of The Doctor

    There were no babies or cot in sight, but I enjoyed it anyway. I loved how Matt played the regeneration. It was exuberant, which is how his time has always felt to me. I do wonder about that Papal ‘mainframe’ – is this a River connection?

    It really is a brand spanking new start: new set of regenerations, Time Lords that would come in “peace”,…[Read more]

  • I’m going to be grumpy.  I don’t like the trailer.  It’s too….. explodey and blowy-upy.  🙁

    Am I experiencing post-50th let down?  Might this be a new disorder??

  • @Craig, might you move my comment #22662?  It does reference action *in* the trailer.

  • That trailer seems quite spoofy to me; very over-the-top (or does it just remind me of an American ‘action’ film?). I will keep my hope in Moffat.  After the deliciousness that was the 50th, my fingers (and bow-ties) are crossed that the Christmas Special will be just as happy-making.

    @Juniperfish – Doctor Who and the Storks of Time!  Babies for all!

  • @Timeloop – I do apologise.   I presume since these have been released, it’s acceptable to link here.
