    @miapatrick that’s the one! Obviously I misremembered the plot and the  end but otherwise… 🙂

    Thank you.

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Eve of the Daleks

    That was more like it! Loved the idea of accepting their death in one loop to set up the next one – a time travel version of Memento.

    on the subject of time travel films, I saw a spanish film a couple of years ago on BBC4 when someone travels forward in time and see themselves  getting shot and (spoiler alert) in trying to avoid it actually…[Read more]

  • @mudlark – excellent background. That certainly unmuddies some of waters for me. [no pun intended!]

  • @blenkinsopthebrave thanks for the heads up about the extra scene

  • This season of Dr Who is like the Star Trek films – one bad, one good, one bad, one good…

  • At the risk of facing the wrath of fellow Whovians, that was totally incomprehensible….

  • Those Sontarans are rotten shots!

    much better than last week –  Azure and Swarm, “translations, but close enough”. Throwaway comment, or possible clue…

  • Well I am pleased that I wasn’t the only that was completely at a loss to describe what I saw in episode 1. As someone above mentioned, I expect each of the plotlines will get an exclusive episode, but will I  remember anything from episode 1? I don’t think so – as a scene setter it failed miserably.

    @miapatrick “it’s most likely a case of how, not if, the Master got away/survived).”

    The Master escape was signposted. just before the bomb went someone offscreen said, something like, “quick, come through here”

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    wow! I am not going to pick it to bits… I loved it…

  • This series is like the Star Trek films, alternating between poor and excellent. TBH I have only just got around to watching this week’s as I wasn’t all fired up, but what a treat. This was another winner, and as commented previously by others, it was the pacing. One story, stick to it, move it along. Back to being excited for tomorrow… defo hop…[Read more]

    At the risk of being attacked by everyone here, I am going to put my head above the parapet and say, with the exception of the truly excellent Judoon episode, and ok plus Praxeus episode, I have found this series underwhelming so far.

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Fugitive of the Judoon

    I begin to suspect that the Doctor will be waking up in the a proverbial shower at the end of this series. We mustn’t forget that ‘everything is a lie’.

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Fugitive of the Judoon

    @lisa nice spot about the companions not knowing the cybermen or daleks. Mistake or clue?….

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Fugitive of the Judoon

    Wow, wow wow! Best one since… can’t remember!

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Spyfall part 2

    <span class=”useratname”>@blenkinsopthebrave “77 years on earth in the 70s and 80s”  Now there is an idea for a an episode – The Two Masters</span>

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Spyfall part 2

    Wow! A lot of name dropping in this episode. Like most, I guessed Ada straight away, but didn’t guess Madeleine – there was a programme about SOE a couple of years ago, and I think she was mentioned in that.

    A nice set up of the series arc. Have we seen the last of the Master? (Doubt it!)

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic Heaven Sent

    @countscarlioni funnily enough I was thinking of the Avengers episode The House That Jack Built during this as well. Happens to be my favourite Avengers episode.

  • Charlie Cook replied to the topic The Woman Who Lived

    Disappointed that the second chip got wasted (as far as the story arc is concerned). Not sure why she didn’t give it the person she wrote about in her journals as being the love of her life.

    Re comments others have made:

    I thought Me said she learnt of the Doctor from people she met (you have made waves)

    Like the theory about Clara still being…[Read more]
