• 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]

    @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!

  • 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.

  • Craig started the topic 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]

  • Craig replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor (2)

    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:

  • Craig replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    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.

  • Craig replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    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]
