    Thanks @fatmaninabox I’ve deleted the account. It’s the easiest option.

    Sorry I’ve not been around – real life got in the way a bit again.

    Thought you might like this though – Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat talking about their new book adaptations of “Rose” and “The Day of the Doctor”.

  • The second entry in our Female Time Lord retrospective. Broadcast at the start of 1978 (so we just missed its 40th anniversary) The Invasion of Time features Tom Baker as the fourth Doctor, is a six parter, and it was the climax to the 15th season of Doctor Who.

    After signing a treaty with enemy aliens the Doctor, along with Leela and K9,…[Read more]

    Jodie Whittaker is getting a lot of good reviews for her role in Journeyman. She looks great and Paddy Considine looks like he’s done a fantastic job as actor, writer and director. I’ll be checking it out.

    @pedant (and just to include @jimthefish ) Many thanks. Have dealt with the one that posted the spam. I also noticed a few other dodgy ones but am reluctant to jump to conclusions. I mean, slickhotness and fdsa may be very dedicated Doctor Who fans. I’m not counting on it, but innocent until proven guilty.

    Once again, thanks for keeping an eye out.

    The final episode is “The Day of Darkness”, referencing the imminent solar eclipse. Ian narrowly escapes drowning in the tunnel and finds his way into the tomb. Can the TARDIS team escape before Tlotoxl’s plans bring them all down?

    I have to admit that this is the first time I’ve properly watched this from start to finish, having seen bits of…[Read more]

    P.S. Sorry for the late post. Also, I’m afraid I’m going away for around 10 days or so you’ll have to wait on tenterhooks for a bit longer than normal for the final episode.

    After that, we should get back to a more regular service.

    The third episode is “The Bride of Sacrifice” and it starts with Barbara saving Ian following the contest with Ixta. Ixta tells Tlotoxl about The Doctor’s plans to find an entrance to the tomb and his suspicions are aroused.

    Meanwhile, with another sacrifice planned in a few days to coincide with an eclipse, Barbara tries to win over Autloc so…[Read more]

    The second episode is “The Warriors of Death” and it picks up where we left off, with Tlotoxl’s threat to destroy Barbara for being a false god. He begins to put his plans in place and things start to go badly pretty quickly for team TARDIS.

    Tlotoxl has Barbara separated from the others so that Autloc may question her to see if she has the…[Read more]

    And did I mention Barbara is a total badass?

    As the first entry in our Female Time Lord retrospective, and because I just didn’t get time to post it during our First Doctor retrospective, we’re going to be discussing “The Aztecs”. The story starts with the ominously titled episode “The Temple of Evil”. That adds more fuel to my supposition that George Lucas is a fan.

    I don’t think Susan…[Read more]

    Hello everyone, I’ve been unemployed now for just over a week and loving every moment of it so far.

    Having taken some time to celebrate, relax my mind and consider what I’m going to do next, one of my priorities is to get this site going again. So starting tomorrow we will, as @bluesqueakpip suggested up thread, start a female Time Lord…[Read more]

    I went to see “Three Billboards…” tonight.

    It’s really good. Not even just really good, but really, really good. Even really, really, really good.

    I was totally wrapped up in it, fully engaged, I laughed, I was moved, I cried a little, and the plot constantly had me out-foxed. It’s brilliantly done.

    It’s been a while, but I think @JimTheFish wins the “Theories even more insane than what’s actually happening” prize this week, or month, for the sonic earrings.

    Oh, and this made me laugh a lot. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in a Major key.

    @whisht @jimthefish regarding the Hollies and Creep I came across this yesterday which is quite fun.

  • Craig replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    It seems a little legal spat has started involving Lana Del Rey and Radiohead over her song “Get Free” which, to me, does sound a lot like “Creep” by Radiohead. But then it turns out The Hollies sued Radiohead for copying them – I can hear similarities, but not as much as the Radiohead/Lana Del Rey songs.

    Those with more musical ears – care to…[Read more]

    @wolfweed I think a blast or two of the sonic may do the trick.
