    Congratulations on creating a genuinely short and ‘no trouble’ survey. 🙂

    @devilishrobby

    I agree that the spiritual home of Who has always been Saturday evenings, but Saturday evenings have changed – they’re now more Variety orientated, with big, often live, shows. The big ‘family drama’ slot is now Sunday from about 7.30 – they might be thinking of popping Who in the 8pm pre-watershed slot, for example. Currently,…[Read more]

    Thanks for that. I did think of dropping a hint about setting up ‘Female Time Lords Retrospective’, but then decided that I didn’t know whether you were hugely relieved/celebrating or drowning your sorrows. Glad to hear it’s ‘hugely relieved’.

  • Bluesqueakpip replied to the topic The Aztecs part 1

    My first comment would be that the Special Edition of the DVD is amazing value – for seven of our British Pounds, you get The Aztecs AND a reconstructed version of Galaxy 4. You also get two child orientated introductions to the Aztec people, various making of/commentaries/documentaries about Who. Plus How the Aztecs Made Cocoa. 🙂

    Okay. Title:…[Read more]

    @tardis123

    It seems the Testimony has some way of either releasing the Doctor’s blocked memory, or replacing the lost memories.

    @gamergirlavatar

    Yes, I’d agree with that. Looking at the scene, the TARDIS is definitely throwing the Doctor out – and the next thing we see of the TARDIS from the Doctor’s perspective is an apparent explosion and the control room full of flames.

    So my guess would be that the TARDIS knew the Doctor wouldn’t survive the explosion that was about…[Read more]

    I remember Peter Wyngarde very fondly from Department S and Jason King, but I didn’t like Planet of Fire that much.

    I did also think about Edge of Destruction, but it turns out that we already rewatched it, back in 2015.

    However, we haven’t done the Dalek Invasion of Earth. 🙂

    Looking at this in a more timetable type way…[Read more]

    @BlenkinsoptheBrave

    Time to consider what we’re doing until the next episode, I think. We’ve certainly stopped talking about Twice Upon A Time.

    Possible suggestion:A Female Time Lord retrospective.

    We’ve watched rather a lot of Susan, but there is The Aztecs, BlenkinsoptheBrave’s favourite Hartnell. The next female Time Lord we see is Rodan…[Read more]

    A very brief excerpt from the DWM interview on the costume.

    Sounds to me like they decided from a very early stage that off-the-peg wouldn’t work, tried a few bits and bobs that were off-the-peg, then said ‘no, really doesn’t work’.

    I do get the ‘affordable cosplaying’ viewpoint, but personally, I’d reckon that when you have to dress an alien…[Read more]

    @JimTheFish

    Not a fashionista myself, but I think you’re not comparing like with like. Men’s fashions tend to change rather more slowly than women’s fashions and women’s fashions are often seriously short-run.

    If I grabbed a coat from a charity shop (or wherever the Whittaker Doctor steals her clothes from), I wouldn’t be terribly surprised to…[Read more]

    She wasn’t wearing earrings during the regeneration sequence, but it looked like they’d styled the hair to cover the ears (and the presumably already made piercings).

    In a Whoniverse where nanowotsits can incorporate gas-masks into your face, I’m sure they have self-piercing earrings. 🙂

  • Bluesqueakpip replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    Okay, Northern accent theory:

    In this episode, the Capaldi Doctor is frequently called the ‘Doctor of War’. This, of course, reminds him of the War Doctor.

    When he regenerates away from the War Doctor into the Eccleston Doctor, he developed a Northern accent. So, when he regenerates away from the memory of being called ‘the Doctor of War’, she…[Read more]

    Yes, I have tried the Bay of Biscay. In fact, I lived there for a while, when I was a child. 😉

    If we’re going for the Rough Seas Hall of Fame, the Irish Sea has a well deserved reputation for snap gales, high waves, and flying if at all possible…

  • @Missy

    Apologies if I’ve sounded too harsh, or too tetchy. Of course you can state your opinions, even if everyone else disagrees. Heck, I keep stating my opinion that the Moffat-Capaldi period was an experiment that failed, and people disagree with me all the time. 🙂

    But I really do think that – while we have exactly two scenes and one line…[Read more]
