    @craig  Count me in!

    I had no luck @Craig. Knew Newell Penfield was born around this time…like you…but a leedle bit later (in days, I mean). Unfortunately his string quartet whilst on a cassette deck & spooled out right now just aint on youtube. He wasn’t a particularly gifted composer but I liked his stuff. So happy birthday.

    I’ll see what else I can rummage…[Read more]

    @craig  Thanks for the clip.  It was funny yet chilling at the same time.

    @craig aaarghh. Noooooo. (thanks for the link. We all need some good April Fools Day humour at the moment.)



  • @craig

    Well, Richard Curtis getting the blame for romantic gloom rather than vice versa. There’s a certain irony there, I suppose.


    I agree. It’s Curran’s performance that makes this episode and it’s definitely the best portrayal of a historical figure in Who. Only Vinette Robinson as Rosa comes even close. Normally they have…[Read more]

    hey @craig – that’s great!
    My brother bought me a framed ‘number-1-single-on-your-birthday too (not a clock though!)

    No photo (erm… where did I put it??) but here it is:

  • @craig   That was as good as it gets! This is one of my faves and my daughters absolute favourite episode.The only thing that stops me from watching it more often is just how sad it is. We both cry at the end every time.Poor Vincent, that’s all I can say and poor Amy who thought she had fixed him. I have family members who suffer from and are t…[Read more]

  • @craig, @jimthefish

    Been giving more thought to why I felt this story was so perfect, particularly in light of your comments about Richard Curtis. I had no real interest in the light froth of his movies and I also had reservations about “Blackadder” and skipped much of it, although the final episode of “Blackadder Goes Forth” was quite wonderful.…[Read more]

  • @craig

    Yes, I must admit that I can see your points about Love Actually and while I’m not sure I’d say it actually enrages me, it’s not one that I’d ever really want to watch again. But I do kind of like Four Weddings and I thought About Time was OK when I watched it recently — clearly Who had had an effect on him for that one.

  • @craig

    Yes, you’re quite right, I was being a bit literal and focused on the Who-i-ness of it. But those tweets from RC were very interesting and I too will be seeking out Sabine. I definitely would have liked to have known more on how the writing process had worked. What the interaction with Moff had been, what his brief had been etc.

    It’s odd…[Read more]

    @missy So far, so good. I work as a cashier in a grocery store, and that has brought its challenges, for sure. We now have plexiglass shields set up at all checkouts, plus barriers behind us so that we’re not in any direct contact with customers (other than handling cash or coupons).

    The main issue is that we are doing so much sanitizing at our…[Read more]

    Hi @craig

    My maths is usually wrong but I think that this was number one when you were born.

    And actually, I think this sums you up as well (and possibly the thoughts of those here who are here because of you, too)

    Happy Birthday

    (I chose the live version as maybe has a bit more warmth if that’s possible!)

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @craig – a belated Happy Birthday.

    Left you something on the jukebox…

  • Rob replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator


    Belated Happy Birthday

    Great idea to have a later Official Birthday, you are as your avatar shows a person of high birth and that is entirely fitting for you to have as many 50th birthday parties as you desire (quick Who Forum people we all  need to panic buy jelly [for our cousins across the pond that’s jello], just in case Craig pops…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @craig  Happy 50th Birthday!  It is a real drag that you have to spend it without your family but at least you have your phone and your Whovian fam online. I hope your cake is your favourite kind and you have ice cream to go with it. In fact I will have some ice cream in your honour. I hope you like my sacrifice.

  • Bluesqueakpip replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    Happy Birthday! Hope it’s a good one in spite of the circumstances. 🙂

  • Mudlark replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator


    Happy landmark birthday, and may the next one be celebrated in happier and more convivial circumstances. Meanwhile, here in the pub, we can join you in spirit if not in person. Cheers!

  • Happy birthday, @craig!


  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    Happy birthday @craig 🙂 Sorry you’re having to spend it alone but I hope you have a good day anyway!
