    Hi all liked this episode much more than the first 2. It had a much more classical who feel. I am beginning to wonder about Ruby and is it possible this might be Susan’s daughter that she has somehow sent to the doctor to look after, as she would be his great granddaughter but only part galifreyan and possibly another hybrid. Though what is it w…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Devil’s Chord

    Well I have to say this was an episode of two halves for me. It started out fairly good ok must say Maestro’s performance was very OTT but given this is supposed to be one of the Celestial Toymakers Pantheon what do you expect especially after Neil Patrick’s  rendition of the character they needed to have someone who reflected this which Jinx did…[Read more]

    Hmmm, wasn’t too bad an episode seen worse but at the moment I’m not sure Ncuti is  creating the Doctors gravitas. It actually felt more like a mid season filler fluff episode. I hope this isn’t  a result of the Disney  partnership. Will probably need a rewatch to firm up my opinions to be honest it’s just doesn’t feel a classic who episode.

    @whohar as a general rule if I was commenting on a new episode I would post spoiler free comments in the first 24 hrs to give all a chance to see the episode before making spoilery comments about an episode. As Craig said we are now in a new situation with the BBC dropping episodes on iPlayer prior to being aired on the terrestrial channel. This…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Winchester

    I’m not surprised about that. I think Cartmel was aiming at the doctor actually being some kind of contemporary of Rassilon in the Who books published just after BG Who was cancelled there was some hint that the Doctor may have been  somthing to do with a Triumvirate of ancient  Timelords of Rassilon, Omega and someone referred the Trickster. I t…[Read more]

    @ps1l0v3y0u you’re are indeed right that the 12 regeneration rule was created as cannon in the Deadly Assassin but that particular bit of cannon was partially broken by the 5 Doctors special episode when it was hinted/stated that Timelords from the ancient times like Rassilon were potentially immortal obviously implying that sone Timelords could h…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Church on Ruby Road

    @vickymallard  I wouldn’t base your opinion on a premier of a Doctor in a Xmas Special as the Xmas specials seem to have a hit and miss history. As @ps1/ov3yu has said RTD seemed to be channeling some of the Mof’s campish Xmas style, I would wait for at least a few episodes from the new series as it starts in I think it’s April or May before…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Church on Ruby Road

    Hmm now also watched the Doctor Who Unleashed episode for this episode, now I know RTD is a prime exponent of the Doctors first rule and really enjoys messing with us fans but he did admit that there is going to be a slow reveal background story to Mrs Flood. If this is indeed a case of RTD messing with us then he appears to have Anita Dobson…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Church on Ruby Road

    Loved the episode and there were a couple of definite wtf  moments definitely need a second and perhaps a third  viewing.  All I want to say at the moment is who the heck is Anita Dobson really playing.

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On the Sofa 11

    @blenkinsopthebrave my understanding is that he was actually suffering from a combination of a form of arteriocerebro-vascular  dementia and heart failure quite possibly exacerbated by his heavy smoking and drinking though he didn’t actually die till 1975 I suspect he was having problems memorising his lines as early as 1966 when he was ef…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Giggle

    @whohar this comment has been stimulated by one of your comments over on the blue yonder thread about series 15s potential big bad. But because my response is in part stimulated by some of the events in the Giggle in particular The Toymakers reference to an entity he ran away from,  I’m actually wondering if he was possibly referring to the Bl…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Giggle

    Right after a quiet rewatch( was watching  yesterday with my client) had what I thought was quite a disturbing though as I noticed that the Unit ladies all were wearing a similar if not the same coloured nail polish red as the hand that seemed to be about to pick up the Master Gold Tooth prison…… do we have a branch of the cult of Saxon with…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Giggle

    To my knowledge no, but consider this the timelords seemed to have resurrected every psycho Timelord in the time wars so a regenerated or resurrected Rani is I suppose possible but my bet would be one of that strange cult of the Master’s  being the hand.😉😛

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Giggle

    Oh another thought are they going to run a second stream of Who,  one with David and one with Ncuti, though to be honest it would have made sense given we are being told RTD is keen for spin-offs that if the  TennantDoc was an earth bound Doctor perhaps working with UNIT like an early PertweeDoc.

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Giggle

    Brilliant episode, but did anyone else get the feeling we were being set up for a long term story arc again a mention of some kind of superior/ boss that even the Toymaker answered to. Is this something that Ncuti’s first series is going to be about. And the Bi-Generation WTH does this make Ncuti really 14.5 or 15 and is he going to gain m…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic The Star Beast

    @ps1l0v3y0u

    I would say the Host robots are more reminiscent of the Robots in the Tom Baker Robots of Death in fact they look very similar facially except the robots in Robots of Death were metallic Green  as opposed to the golden angels

     

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic Wild Blue Yonder

    @scaryb  I think the  HADS system is a trop used several times in Who over the years even in the BG era though I have to admit I am very hard pushed to remember what stories. I seem to remember it was used in the in a Pertwee era story and even in a Tom Baker story.

     

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic Wild Blue Yonder

    @blenkinsopthebrave yes I also am eagerly awaiting the final episode of the 60th specials in part because it seems to be shaping up to be more of a Special episode. As a side note I read or watched somewhere, as I have a tendency to watch multiple YouTube Who bloggers, that there are plans put it on the list to recreate the missing episodes of…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic Wild Blue Yonder

    Just done my second viewing of this weeks episode. Didn’t really pay too much attention to the initial scene with the future Sir Issac  on the first viewing though did think the casting was a little odd but I now wonder at the casting though but there might just be a reason for that that I’ll get back to . The episode as a whole was an  int…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On the Sofa 11

    @dentarthurdent  I would agree it certainly was one of the most frightening episodes. Especially as it is entirely a psychological terror episode with no visible antagonist and relied entirely on the interactions of the actors to up the tension. Ironically I would suppose it was possibly one of the cheapest episodes to achieve.
