• @blenkinsopthebrave   That looks very interesting and I put it on my watch list. Thanks.

    @dentarthurdent  I am a massive fan of Sherlock and have watched it all a few times. It modernizes the characters and stories excellently, bringing Holmes and Watson to life in our time. It also has a really good cast! Have fun watching.

    Stay safe.

  • and Sue Vertue. (I think it a little ironical that Moffat is accused of misogyny in his writing when he is frequently working for his wife. Kind of think she might call him out if he was being misogynist. )

    It sounds interesting and with that cast cannot be bad surely? Will watch out for it. Thanks for the link, @blenkinsopthebrave.

    @mudlark It’s a little bit reassuring (to me) to see that female persons agree with me on Moffat’s characters and I’m not somehow blinkered by my male point of view. (Actually I just realised I’ve stereotyped myself horribly there – I’m not really sure what a ‘male point of view’ is, forget I said that 🙂

    Whittaker was either mis-cast or…[Read more]

    @Mudlark and @dentharturdent (excellent avatar btw) Agree with both posts. I do get irritated by MOffat’s use of the psychopath label when applied to River Song as she is not a psychopath though at times that aspect of her character is inconsistent but that is a different, and minor niggle. Moffat created some memorable female characters who were…[Read more]

    For the record, there is an interview with Steven Moffat in today’s Guardian in which, among other things, he discusses with good humour some of the more negative responses to his take on Doctor Who and Sherlock.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   Well , it looks like they have all the major baddies in this one. It should be exciting with all those guys in it and the Master is always fun to watch. I am looking forward to this one and I hope they send the 13th Doctor off with a bang.

    stay safe

  • janetteB replied to the topic Dr Who News (5)

    Thank you for the news @blenkinsopthebrave. I wish I was more excited but maybe, the end will be better than previous. I keep hoping and if Ian is in it then there will be at least one reason to watch it.

    cheers

    @nerys  @winston  @blenkinsopthebrave    Midnight was one of RTD’s best-written episodes, I think.   It was actually a bottle episode  (I checked to see I’d got the terminology right and, surprise,  Wikipedia lists it as an example of that  🙂     but all the more intense for that.   Scared people turning on each other is always frightening.  …[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @nerys  @blenkinsopthebrave   Midnight is an intense episode that is like the Twilight Zone . I can almost hear the opening narration and the do-do music.We never know what exactly is happening or who is causing it and we never know why. Watching the small group of random tourists become so scared they turn into potential murderers is chilling. Tw…[Read more]

    @janetteb I have read mentions of Merlin, also starring Colin Morgan (the actor who played Jethro in “Midnight”). I haven’t seen it, so I can’t comment one way or the other. I love your memories of Northern Ireland, though it saddens me that they are tinged with the threat of violence. It’s heartbreaking what that meant for so many people ……[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   Happy Birthday!  I hope it was a great one. You share a birthday with my granddaughter who turned 18 today. What? How did that happen, when did it happen? My son’s birthday is tomorrow. How is it that their birthdays make me feel older them my own? Anyway I hope you had fun on yours.

    @dentarthurdent and @blenkinsopthebrave I do love the Fiveish Doctor’s reboot. It is truly a gem, reflecting a remarkable degree of good will between all involved. It is one of those things that I will watch when I need a ‘pick me up”. It changed my attitude to Colin Baker, though I still don’t like him as the Doctor and really raised Peter…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave I missed this the other day. I do like Ian. I wish that he would get a “cameo” in a new episode. The 60th anniversary special would do nicely.  I started writing a Christmas story involving Ian and his “grandson”, played by Alfred Enoch. (assuming Ian does marry Barbara he would have to be a grandson not son) a couple of years…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave Thanks for the welcome!

    So I don’t understand this website because very few of the Third Doctor’s episodes even have a forum thread, and we have multiple threads for parts of the same stories.  I don’t understand why they don’t just let users make threads on this website since we have such a good community and could easily…[Read more]

    It’s sad to hear about Cribbins’ passing.  Just the other day I was talking about The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End, and made some comparisons to The End of Time.  Wilf had a pretty big part in those episodes, and in the regeneration of 10 into 11.  In a way Wilf’s exit from Doctor Who was my introduction to it.
