    @scaryb Nothing to be sorry about 🙂

    The ending works for me too. I just think, if I was giving notes, The Doctor should have somehow reprogrammed the AI John to attack your recurring friend Susan Twist. It would have given The Doctor more agency.

    By the way, is Susan Twist real? I haven’t Googled her. I’m not sure I want to.

    I’ll give my thoughts as it’s a Moffat script. I think that’s probably the episode that has appealed to me the most so far, as I prefer sci-fi over fantasy. And I liked the high-concept. And it was, for all the budget, a bottle episode, and Doctor Who in a quarry (which is fun for us older viewers).

    It had a lot of good ideas. And Moffat really…[Read more]

    It’s the return of the Moff. Stephen Moffat comes back to Doctor Who with what sounds like a very high-concept script.

    Caught in the middle of a devastating war on Kastarion 3, the Doctor is trapped when he steps on a landmine. Can he save himself and Ruby, plus the entire planet … without moving?

    Sounds like it has echoes of the scene…[Read more]

    Yeah, the obvious interpretation is “Christmas Waits”. Given Ruby’s origin it seems to be going that way. Is “The one who waits” Father Christmas (or Kris Kringle)?

    Can you please read the Etiquette page. We have tried to cultivate a site where everyone shows respect for everyone else.

    Phrases like “woke crap” are actually denigrating to people who share those values. You are basically saying “your beliefs and values are crap”.

    @blenkinsopthebrave Now this is weird. I knew it was dropping on Disney+ slightly earlier. What I didn’t realise was that it was also dropping on the BBC iPlayer at the same time.

    They have dropped the first two episodes – which are showing back-to-back tonight on terrestrial TV.

    I guess I should just open threads for them now and we can gauge…[Read more]

    HI all, just to let you know I have marked MonicaWillims as a spammer (and the jackets people) so we shouldn’t hear from “her” or them again.

    Hi Declan, I’m just putting this out there for you and for other people who find this a hard time of year. I don’t particularly enjoy it myself, if I’m honest.

    There are other ways to contact them too.

    I hope you feel better.

  • I’m just gonna put this here. I have been watching The Crown on Netflix and it has finally ended.

    I didn’t watch the first three series but when it got up to my era, with Charles and Diana – and Thatcher (grrrr), I started watching. And it was really good.

    There is one incredibly good episode in Series 4 called “Fagan” which is about the guy who…[Read more]

    That is indeed very sad news. I was a little bit in love with Halo Jones when I was young. He also did fine work on other characters – making Judge Dredd a skinny boy is bold but he pulled it off (and something I appreciate, being a skinny boy).

    I just grabbed this off my shelf – think I’ll read it again tonight.

    @phaseshift I almost spat out my gin and tonic at “pet Tennant” 🙂

  • Craig replied to the topic The Giggle

    Short comment. That was weird but I liked it. It’s almost like RTD can never let David Tennant go. “I’ll create a double to be with Rose”. Then “I’ll create a bi-Doctor to be with Donna”. Is bi-Doctor the right term? I have no idea. I’m sure people more informed than me will come up with the right term.

    But of course, it means we can get the old…[Read more]
