    Oh no, not saving the Ponds!   We’ve moved on from that, surely.    Too much of a retrograde step.

    Absolutely agree with you there – both about the sonic screwdriver, which was getting very silly, and the new Doctor’s possible personality.   Machiavellian indeed!     And a bit less of the agonising would be good, too…

    My first post on here, so don’t shoot me…

    Scrambled brain after reading ALL the posts about the Christmas special!

    For me, I am getting rather fed up with all the Christmas specials having to be Christmassy.   (does this make me Scrooge?  Probably.)  And also with the new craze for bringing in a whole load of monsters just for the sake of it,…[Read more]
