  • Hi @blenkinsopthebrave

    So – I’ve gone and done it!
    I saw the two-parter then binged on Picard!
    The whole season – and I’d binge it again which is not something I’d say about most shows!

    ;¬)

    Now before I say anything – I’d love to read a blog from you on this (or anything else).
    No pressure, but to hear from a fan would be really insightful for…[Read more]

    But I wanna photo!! 🙁

    I have a rather stunning pizza to share in the pub. Should Child know how to operate old phone & computer we’ll have PICTURE to accompany the pizza recipe.

    Make  pizza dough -or buy it! I can add, later, the recipe I follow which is relatively easy.

    @jimthefish @blenkinsopthebrave I think the problem is just not wanting to step on the current showrunner’s toes.

    I kinda think that’s why Russel T Davies didn’t write an episode for the Moffat era.

    Can you imagine if Moffat wrote an episode like “Blink” for the Chibnall era and everyone said “This is exactly what we’ve been waiting for – proper…[Read more]

    @craig and @blenkinsopthebrave

    I’d very much like to see Moffat do a story for 13. This is probably too short a sample to give a definitive sense but it seems to me that he can certainly write her character and that even now he still seems to have some interesting things to say about Who. I do wonder how much truth there is in the rumours that…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    @jimthefish @blenkinsopthebrave I just saw a link to that on Twitter and came on here to post it.

    Great job by Moffat that, sort-of, connects to young Amelia Pond, in a way, or his other childrens’ stories such as young Danny and the young Doctor.

    I hope it means he might write an episode, especially if he’s bored at home like the rest of us,…[Read more]

    Gawd, my keyboard! 😀

    @blenkinsopthebrave   Thanks for the giggles!  The Fuck All song is hilarious,even hubby liked it. I have watched it enough to memorize  the lyrics and I intend to sing it whenever I feel too anxious. If a Dalek told me to stay inside, I would.

    Stay safe.

  • @winston and @blenkinsopthebrave and jimthefish

    Also watched it again – it really is one of the best of the ‘introducing the new Doctor’ episodes. In a way, it’s a shame this didn’t get a cinema live-stream because it feels very cinematic.

    When Matt Smith pops his head out of the Tardis with that cheeky grin and the twinkle in his eyes I still…

  • @blenkinsopthebrave  I also watched it again and I am trying to say something I didn’t say above. Still think it is the best intro to a new Doctor and companions that I have watched.When Matt Smith pops his head out of the Tardis with that cheeky grin and the twinkle in his eyes I still think “this is going to be an exciting ride” and it was. I…[Read more]

  • @blenkinsopthebrave

    Agreed. Everything just works with this one: not just Curran’s performance, but Karen Gillan’s performance as someone grieving but not understanding why. And then there’s Matt Smith, being nice to Amy without being able to explain why.

    It all just – works. A dramatic poem on the subject of depression and grief.

  • Rob replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @Blenkinsopthebrave

    Yes that is a timeless classic 😃

  • @craig

    Well, Richard Curtis getting the blame for romantic gloom rather than vice versa. There’s a certain irony there, I suppose.

    @blenkinsopthebrave

    I agree. It’s Curran’s performance that makes this episode and it’s definitely the best portrayal of a historical figure in Who. Only Vinette Robinson as Rosa comes even close. Normally they have…[Read more]

  • @blenkinsopthebrave Totally agree. Curran is excellent. Matt Smith said last night on Twitter that Curran slept all night in the bed before the anger/depression scene to get in to character. He really is fantastic in the role, that’s why I liked his little video tweet the most.

    I thought it was great. The series was consistently strong throughout. And I immediately went off and rewatched both parts of ‘All Good Things’ which I thought was also extremely pertinent….

    @thane16 – soooooo good to hear from you. Really really good. Hope you’re keeping well.

    @miapatrick – really sorry to hear about your situation. I have no wise words, or advice or anything of use. Others here have said far wiser and compassionate things so just know that even the tongue-tied and those who never post and simply read are thinking o…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  I saw this on the news and it was great! We can’t do enough to help and thank these brave,  hard working folks.As to the off- license  being closed I feel for you. Ours are still open for now.

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @bluesqueakpip thank you, and yes, that makes sense. It is concerning when they reassure you that if it is that, it’s very very treatable, and then you hear, however, there might be no treatment for a long time, I think its the indefinite time period that makes it hard, not that there is anything they can do about it. My friend, who lives in…[Read more]
