    I was going to post ‘Mirror Man’ by (The) Human League but it seems @pedant beat me to it so here’s a frog related song instead.

    Oh, Puro! I was having such a good day and you go and spoil it all by mentioning Theresa May. Grrrr ๐Ÿ™‚

    @pedant

    I think they did show 1984 a few months ago but, due to my sieve-like brain, I forgot to watch it. They have a tendency to repeat films every few months so I dare say it’ll be on again soon.

    Hi all.

    There’s a great channel broadcasting in the UK called Talking Pictures. It’s been broadcasting for quite a while but I’ve only recently discovered it.

    They show old films and TV programmes which are mostly b&w and from the 1930s to 1960s but from time to time they broadcast programmes/films from the 70s & 80s particularly those that,…[Read more]

    So far this series has, while being watchable, left me feeling a bit underwhelmed.

    Bloody enjoyed this one though. The first half had a whiff of ‘The Beast Below’ about it – the delivery bots bearing a passing resemblance to the ‘Smilers’ added to that feeling.

    Bubble wrap as a weapon – it can’t fail really. After all, who can resist popping…[Read more]

    @rob – Ha, quite possibly. Along with blood, sweat, droplets of coffee and lots and lots of tears ๐Ÿ™‚

  • A rather light-weight story but, with 4 new characters* to introduce it needed to be and it was enjoyable.

    I was doing a bit of ‘bonkerising’ from the start which, as with most bonkerising, turned out to be wrong. I thought that the big blue space turnip may have been the TARDIS re-growing (was it the 10th Doctor that said they were grown rather…[Read more]

    Phew, I very nearly missed Doctor Who due to ‘technical hitches’.

    Firstly, I record TV to my PC using a USB thingy. I haven’t used it for a while ( since last year’s Xmas episode in fact) so earlier today I did a test run just to make sure it was still working and today of all days, it decided to record audio only – no video. Oh poo!

    Thinking it…[Read more]

    Hi all,

    Unless I’m in someway special and have been singled out, some of you may have received a message from @keranuu6543 inviting you to be her friend (and has very kindly supplied me with her private email address). I’m pretty sure I don’t need to say this but do not respond.

    Keran / Karen claims to work for the US Army but, given the English…[Read more]

    @wolfweed – Interesting RT article on Easter Eggs. One that they appear to have missed is a possible ‘goodbye’ to the Paternoster Gang.

    When ‘Testimony’ is being explained, various images of people having their memories extracted appear as holograms. The last person to be shown is a woman in Victorian attire who, to me, looks a lot like Jenny…[Read more]

    is there going to be an in-universe explanation of 13โ€™s Yorkshireness?

    If it hadn’t been for the accent, I’d have said that The Doctor’s recent encounter with Capt. Lethbridge-Stewart may have had an influence. In the next Doctors first, very brief moments, I found myself thinking of Kate Stewart.

    @scaryb @pedant @bluesqueakpip

    I think there may be a simpler reason why Bill doesn’t know/remember what happened to Heather. Bill, or at least the version that exists within Testimony, didn’t travel with Heather. The moment that Heather touched Bill and converted her to ‘Puddle Bill’ is the moment that Bill/CyberBill died and her memories became…[Read more]

    I love Russian Trolls. I’ve always been fascinated by the way they fit so neatly inside each other.

    Oh wait… My mistake. That’s Russian Dolls

    I’ve just finished editing the recording I made of last night’s John Williams Prom. I’m not sure I’ll post them online anywhere though (copyright issues etc).

    For those intending to watch/record tonight’s BBC4 broadcast pay close attention to the beginning of the ‘Raiders March’. There are a few ‘bum’ notes making it sound as though the orchestra…[Read more]

    It’s Prom season and while there’s no Doctor Who Prom (again) this year, there is a concert that may be of interest to some of you.

    On Thursday 20th July at 19:30, BBC Radio 3 will be broadcasting a celebration of the music of John Williams. The concert will also be televised on BBC4 on Friday 21st at 20:00 – running time approx 2…[Read more]

    Just popped in and now I’m popping out again – PC problems (Personal Computer not Peter Capaldi ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and a couple of domestic disasters to deal with.

    You never know, one day I might manage to make a proper return to the fold.
