    @pedant I got a message from Kayla too – so she’s been dealt with. Sorry but I’ve been busy with real world stuff but will try to get back to the site properly soon, including removal firms (although I have to wonder what they have to gain)

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    Hi @blenkinsopthebrave Yes I’ve marked her/him as a spammer, and the next person who also registered with the same email domain right after I spammed them.

    Some nights it’s like whack-a-mole!

    I think that I recommended “Snowpiercer” a while back. I was delighted to find that it has now been added to Netflix, so now I don’t have to watch it illegally.

    It really is worth a watch. It is incredibly good. John Hurt, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton and more, in a crazy allegorical sci-fi movie where all that’s left of humanity is…[Read more]

    Sorry for the late responses to you all @pedant @janetteb @whisht @mudlark @winston @thane16

    Thank you for the kind words but I hope, actually I believe, it’s something anyone could and should do. As I said, I have no training, it just takes a bit of nerve to go up and talk to a stranger. It might take even more nerve to call up a…[Read more]

    @pedant You beat me to it. But here’s the beautiful clip from ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’.

    Truly one of the greats.

  • Craig replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    I guess this is some sort of Public Service Announcement. So it’s a bit dull, but I wanted to get it out there – for my own good, if not anyone else’s. I live near a well-known suicide spot and in the past two weeks I have talked two people out of killing themselves. Both had travelled for about an hour to get there – so they really made an effort…[Read more]

  • I’ve added this back to the home page as it completes our Chris Chibnall retrospective. We now have five episodes (four stories) to discuss in light of him becoming the new showrunner.

    My own thoughts (which I can go into more detail if anyone wants) is that he wasn’t given the gig because the strength of his Doctor Who writing. None of his…[Read more]

  • The invaders are gone but the Doctor has a new problem. Having opened up the forcefield, a whole new bunch of invaders have arrived – the Sontarans. And they want the Doctor.

    Once again, Kelner sucks up to the invaders while the Doctor and the others – Leela, Rodan, Andred and the outsiders – are forced to go on the run.

    And as we’re…[Read more]

  • Sorry for the slightly late posting again. I wasn’t being held at gunpoint – my parents were visiting and only left this afternoon. There’s an Invasion of Time joke in there somewhere.

    Andred’s attempt to kill the Doctor fails and the other guards have the Doctor’s back, imprisoning Andred in the TARDIS. The Doctor tells him the Matrix has been…[Read more]

  • Craig started the topic Cold Blood

    Part two of “The Hungry Earth” / “Cold Blood”.

    The Doctor and Nasreen have found the Silurain city where Amy and others are being held, deep underground. Meanwhile, above ground, Rory and others keep a watch on Alaya.

    Rory! Oh Rory!

    At time of writing, this is on iPlayer for the next 7 months if you’re in the UK.

    For the best viewing…[Read more]

  • And for our third instalment… The Doctor welcomes the shimmering (or bacofoil) “new masters” of Gallifrey but, as Leela says to Rodan, “He always has a plan”.

    Maybe that’s why the Doctor seems to be fixated on his office decor and K9 is still roaming the corridors of the Citadel and doing … eh, something in the TARDIS.

    Leela and Rodan go…[Read more]

  • Craig started the topic The Hungry Earth

    The first of a two-parter featuring the return of the Silurians, last seen in the fifth Doctor story “Warriors of the Deep” in 1984.

    The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in Wales in 2020 where a drilling operation is disrupting the Silurians, who live underground.

    While this is an okay story, it’s probably most notable for introducing the…[Read more]

  • It’s been almost a year since part 1. My apologies. But let’s pick up where we left off. Time is relative after all.

    The Doctor, back on Gallifery, has been given the ‘everything-you-can-think-of’ of Rassilon, crowned as Lord President of the Supreme Council and given ‘The Matrix’. But he doesn’t have a very good reaction to it being crowned on…[Read more]

    As @pedant suggests, this thread has gone over its maximum 20 pages so it’s now closed I’ve started a new one here:

    General Music thread 4

  • Craig started the topic General Music thread 4

    We have a new music thread. I will start the new thread off with what I think is a modern classic pop song. Apropos of nothing. Nothing to do with Who, I just like it. And it reminds me of a time when I was a bit more wild than I am these days.

    The previous thread can be found…[Read more]

    Thanks all – now marked as a spammer.

    By the way, am hoping regular service will restart this Saturday I’ve had a lot going on but it’s almost over. Thankfully.

  • @pedant Cheers – spammer (or strangely confused person) duly removed.

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

    @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.

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    @thane16 @kevinwho and everyone else. Apologies as always. I have marked our new friend as a spammer. (sorry for the delay but I was asleep – I have to sleep, sometimes) 🙂

    Please do not respond to their emails. I have quite a tight ‘bot’ stricture on this site, but if a human signs up and posts nonsense messages then I’m kinda at your mercy.…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    @cathannabel @miapatrick @whisht

    Many thanks – have marked them both as spammers. It does seem to be the case that, because there is “Doctor” in the site name they think we might be interested in their dodgy medication. They take the time to sign up, and add a profile pic. But they don’t take the time to work out what the site is about!
