• @nearlysane I loved the second series – they start taking it in a whole new direction, and the final episode was actually quite touching.

    But I do struggle to see how they can take it beyond three series – but they might surprise me – so far the third series has been great as well.

  • I don’t think anyone’s mentioned this before. Sorry if I missed a comment. But ‘The Good Place’ came on to my radar recently and I’ve been binge-watching it on Netflix.

    Its got a great pedigree and combines comedy with moral philosophy. Ted Danson was recently nominated for an Emmy for Season Two.

    It’s about a woman who dies and ends up in ‘The…[Read more]

    Just watched the opening credits again – still do love the new (but kinda old) theme tune. It’s a nice nod.

    As there weren’t any opening credits last week, and this week we got opening credits without a TARDIS, I wonder if they’ll have TARDIS in them next week?

    Just a thought.

  • Craig replied to the topic The Ghost Monument

    @JimTheFish Yeah, I kinda thought I’d let the sunglasses thing ride, but seeing as there was such a big point made about empty pockets in the first story it seemed weird.

    Unless they’re just charity shop sunglasses and she was joking? Maybe?

  • Craig replied to the topic The Ghost Monument

    I don’t think this counts as spoilers – just a nice insight into the new TARDIS.

  • Craig replied to the topic The Ghost Monument

    @Pedant @Miapatrick I had a thought last week that there might be an arc based on the SkyHigh company that the targeted bloke’s Dad owned – that there was a reason he was targeted by an alien *predator*. I mean, why pick him?

    Might still be right.

    Personally, I don’t think we’ve seen much of the new TARDIS, but what I’ve seen so far I love.

    @pedant

    Here’s Kevin Smith on his diet – which he got from Penn Jilette (of magicians Penn & Teller) who also had a health scare.

    I don’t know if this is of any use, hopefully not condescending – but it shows you’re not alone.

    Good luck.

    The Ghost Monument

    I haven’t seen this one yet so don’t know much about it and no one seems to be giving much away. But from what I hear it’s more concerned with continuing character introductions than full-on story. Which is fine with me. And it’s supposed to be just as good as the opening episode.

    As we ended last week with our heroes stranded in space,…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @pedant As everyone has said, sorry to hear about the diagnosis. I had a few problems recently and had to go for blood tests but thankfully turns out I just need to “stop smoking, drink less and eat more fruit and vegetables” – which is what I think all doctors say to everyone. Have subscribed.

    Seriously though, my boss was diagnosed with Type 2,…[Read more]

    @juniperfish I think my favourite bit was in the AG one – “Spacial Justice Warrior”. Just genius.

    @JimTheFish That sounds horrifying! 🙂 I have a friend who lives very near Blackpool. She’s not a Doctor Who fan but she knows I am and is a fan of free drinks and a free night out (like most of us probably). If no one else can go I’ll see if she…[Read more]

    Hey everyone. I don’t live anywhere near Blackpool but Madame Tussauds Blackpool are launching a brand new Doctor Who area, which includes a Tardis, themed areas and even a Jodie Whittaker wax figure.

    I’ve been invited to a hard-hat tour on Monday 15 October, and the launch night on 18 October.

    If someone wants to go and report back, let me know…[Read more]

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

    Hopefully they won’t change these links. Here are the people behind it – who had never watched Doctor Who before, talking about making the Honest Trailers – if you’re interested. I kinda like ‘Classic’ and ‘Modern’ but I still prefer BG and AG. 🙂

    EDIT – if you want to see the parody trailers without the commentary see my post…[Read more]

    @Kharis Thank you for letting me know they updated the link – have updated it above so it now works.

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

    I don’t know if you know about Screen Junkies on YouTube, or their Honest Trailers. If not you should check them out as many are screamingly hilarious.

    They recently did a charity auction and someone paid them $10,000 to do a Doctor Who Honest Trailer, so they had to watch all of Who for the last few months.

    But here are the results – they did…[Read more]

    @nearlysane Welcome. And thank you. It took a good while, and a lot of troll hunting, to set the tone of this site but I think we got there.

    It’s only a small community but we kinda all know each other now. Look forward to your contributions – or just your continued reading.

    @blenkinsopthebrave and @rorysmith

    The BBC has no advert breaks and is available to anyone with a UK IP address (I think).

    So, you didn’t hear this from me but *cough* VPN. 🙂

    I don’t know about these things, honestly – I have Netflix and Amazon Prime for movies and TV shows and I have iPlayer as I’m in the UK.

    But find a computer nerd who…[Read more]

    @MissRori As @XAD4 says – please try to stick to the episode and not what’s going to happen next week or the week after. If you want to do that we have topics for that.

    Sorry to be a buzz-kill but some people like to go in knowing nothing.

  • Craig replied to the topic The Woman Who Fell To Earth

    @pedant I kinda like the Doctor Barbie. I like to nudge my niece in the direction of strong female characters. I’ve bought her a Black Widow Funko Pop! toy in the past, told my brother to show her the CW’s Supergirl, and the Wonder Woman movie.

    Even yesterday I told him he should take her to Aquaman as he saw the trailer and responded that my…[Read more]

    @Pedant Yeah – and loving the new/old theme.

    @ScaryB Me too – AWOL and excited. I’ve been keeping an eye on things but just needed a bit of a break – hey, Davies and Moffat had them too!
