• Just popping in – am home from my holidays. I watched “Killing Eve” with my Dad over the last few days. It is great. Was nominated for Best Drama at the Golden Globes and Sandra Oh won Best Actress. It’s a must see. It’s an “agent chases assassin” story, but it subverts so many of the normal storytelling tropes. The dynamic brings to mind Batman…[Read more]

    @pedant @margaret-blaine @janetteb @kevinwho @jimthefish

    Sorry, late to the party again (still on holiday). But you all seem to have done your thing. I think the user’s comments are fine – not great, but okay. It’s just the stupid username that’s the problem.

    If they change it, as they say they will, then I’m gonna leave it. For now.

    Resolution

    Firstly, as I’ve been a bit AWOL over the holiday season, I hope you all had a very merry Christmas (or whatever you celebrate – or even if you don’t) and I wish all commentators, and all who just pop in for a read, a very Happy New Year – even though we will be, sadly, Doctorless. I’ll try to keep the site reasonably lively over the coming…[Read more]

    Cheers @kevinwho. That’s what happens when you copy and paste from the previous thread and don’t read it properly! 🙂

  • Craig replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @pedant Thanks for letting me know.

    I am now closing this thread (as it is way over the 20 page limit). A continuation of the thread can be found here:

    Following on from @arbutus – one for New Year. I really liked this.

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    @pedant Don’t worry, I’ve been keeping an eye on it. Nothing too bad just yet, but getting close.

    I thought you might like this, in a metaphorical kinda way. You may not know, but John Cena is a famous wrestling star in America, and has now branched out in to acting – he was very funny in “Trainwreck” and is about to appear in “Bumblebee”, the new Transformers movie.

    He’s had a crew-cut his whole career, but now he’s grown his hair a bit. And…[Read more]

    @thane16 Puro, that’s very kind of you. But I couldn’t have done it without all of you.

    I know @blenkinsopthebrave is concerned about the level of engagement or conversation recently (which, although I liked the latest series I would lay some blame at). I am going to take some time over the holidays, have a think, see what the New Year special…[Read more]

    @thane16 No worries Puro – love you.

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    As this topic isn’t a big part of the site I don’t mind just chatting. Strangely enough, just after I posted, a user joined called adamsnowflake. It’s gonna be a fun few days, I can tell.

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    I may sound like a conspiracy theorist now, but people who complain about SJWs are usually white, privileged mostly-males from the UK or USA. As are the mostly-males who call people “Snowflakes” yet who take massive offence whenever you question them, Brexit, or Trump.

    So they are educated – always wrong, but educated.

    I’m starting to wonder if…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic Website comments (2)

    So I got a post (quickly deleted by me) which confirms what I thought. And it’s not even grammatically correct English. I begin to wonder where our friend is from?

    I came here mostly to validate that the pettiness of SJW fans who can not accept other opinions.

    What an idiot.

    @ All I’m now kinda busy with the run up to Christmas, but I have made our friend a spammer and deleted some posts. I don’t need it in my life and neither do you. They’ll probably think it’s SJW censorship or something, but I don’t care – it’s really just dealing with someone who has really bad manners.

    But really – if we get more, don’t engage,…[Read more]

  • Craig replied to the topic General Films thread

    HBO have now made ‘Brexit – the movie’ With Benedict Cumberbatch.

    I wonder, and when you watch the trailer you’ll see what I mean, if they made this because they can’t quite target the Trump campaign just yet. So, although it’s real, it’s also a metaphor. Quite clever if that was their thinking.

    It was just a first draft so is a bit over-written. When I read it now I groan at some of the dialogue and would probably cut quite a bit of it – but it’s still not bad (if I do say so myself).

    So the Doctor (well, Stacey Dooley – who is almost a real-life version of the Doctor) won this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ (or ‘Dancing With The Stars’ as it’s called in the US).’

    Big congrats to her.
