    @blenkinsopthebrave -me too! It was a late night of telly watching for the Puro Crew

    @mudlark Eyes, noses, next it’ll be ears! Glad your chest infection has diminished, however & thank you for the answer.

    @Blenkinsopthebrave *waves back*

    Talalay post – I agree (and apologies for it posting with the full length preview* (I just begin to think I’ve got the hang of this posting thing, then that happens!)). I love her direction (like Camfield, it’s got a flair, expertise and depth, that adds to the storytelling).

    Must go and check out the Crusade…[Read more]

  • ScaryB replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    Thanks for that summary @Blenkinsopthebrave

    I remember The Crusade making an impact on me at the time as a little un (and you’re right about Douglas Camfield. His direction work turns up in a lot of 60s/early series, and it’s always notable)

  • janetteB replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @bluesqueakpip and @blenkinsopthebrave It turns out I even posted a comment on that thread but I had not rewatched the story so my memory is not entirely shot. Must be time I remedied that. There are several early Hartnell stories which I have only seen the once.

    Cheers

    @blenkinsopthebrave @bluesqueakpip, @thane16, @winston, @janetteb, @cathannabel,

    I’m afraid I’m currently having to deal with some personal matters but normal service should be resumed in March. Hopefully you can wait until then.

    We still have a short Chibnall retrospective to do, and a whole host of female Timelord stories lined up too.

  • Bluesqueakpip replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave, @janetteB and @winston

    The one slight problem is that we’ve already watched and discussed it, about four years back. I think it was one of the first Hartnells we watched. And we can’t really do the Dalek Master Plan because it’s mostly lost. There’s nothing to stop a second rewatch – the conversations are already set…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I think that would be a great idea and it could spark some new conversations. I shall see if I can find it at my library.

  • janetteB replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave. I second that suggestion. The Meddling Monk was a fun story. I always enjoy the “history” episodes though I was not so sure that the Monk’s meddling, had it succeeded would have necessarily been such a bad thing. I suspect my Cumbrian ancestors would have preferred the alternate history that would have resulted. (That is if my…[Read more]

    @archaicwhovian,@winston,@blenkinsopthebrave she’s a great actor, but… I don’t want the Doctor to be anything but British. It’s probably as irrational as people not wanting the Doctor to be female, the Doctor isn’t, after all, human. I don’t object to American actors playing British characters, or vice versa. I’d forgotten that Christian Bale…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave and @archaicwhovian   I really like Whoopi and I am happy she is such a Whovian but as the Doctor? Who nose? It would be great if she could do an episode of Who , maybe as an alien.

  • janetteB replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @blenkinsopthebrave  We did indeed survive, the pets survived and even more remarkably the garden survived. Indeed the world is crazy and getting crazier, extreme cold in the northern hemisphere, extreme heat here yet still those with the power to act do nothing.

    Cheers

    @whisht

    I see what you mean about his writing and the prose.

    @blenkinsopthebrave it’s worse than a farce, isn’t it, this ‘administration’? Maybe one day we’ll  wake up and realise it was all a dream 🙁

    Puro.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I think it would be fun to look back at older episodes of Who and discuss them and I hope @craig  considers it. I am lacking in my knowledge of BG Who and it would be mostly new to me, in fact I admit to never watching “The Meddling Monk”. Sorry.

  • janetteB replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @blenkinsopthebrave Thanks. Not looking forward to tomorrow, (today now). Will be 47-48 degrees here. We are about two degrees hotter than Adelaide. We will get by but the garden may not and will be monitoring the pets all day. The cat insists on sleeping outside which is a worry. Convincing him to stay inside is no easy task. A cool change is…[Read more]

    would love to make some friends in Australia

    @misslegaleagle  @blenkinsopthebrave  As Mr B mentioned, the episode you are after Miss Legal, is Extremis. Boy, are we in extremis here, of late.

    @blenkinsopthebrave being from Bris, you’ve done this trek many-a-time so we decided to do something unprecedented! Take a holiday which involved considerable driving and renting a lovely home -self catered – in Springbrook.

    I was born in 1967 which makes me 51 and one thing I know, @bluesqueakpip m’dear, and understand, is just how much work the arts ‘creates’ -and that was back in the late 90s and into the 00’s.

    TV is even harder. I’d say next to politics working in television certainly ages a person considerably -not necessarily in looks but as noticed in the…[Read more]

    @Thane16 – Happy to offer any cooking tips I can, Puro and Thane, tho it may not go further than – make sure you take the giblets out! As @idiotsavon (hi back) says – melted plastic is not a recommended seasoning! (Been there, done that too, I try to stick to garlic now 😉 )

    @ragnarok I mean @idiotsavon of Savon Manor AND  @ScaryB  😀

    Happy new year’s to you both.  x0 x

    I remember, yonks, or timey-whimeys agos, we had a Ragnarok theme during the end of the Smith era?

    I’ve not watched the new ep yet. In fact, I haven’t hooked into the ABC much at all except for the occasional special from The Midwives or Foyles Wa…[Read more]

    Happy New Year to everyone. And apologies for AWOL-ness from the forum thro most of this series, caught in that pesky alt universe vortex (ie too much RL) again! Mega thanks to @Blenkinsopthebrave (and hi to your resident aliens masquerading as earth type felines) and @thane16 among others for not forgetting me and lighting the route back!
