    Happy New Year everyone

    @thane16 – Yes, Puro, the auto subtitles can get things hilariously wrong. Which brings me to this…

    @pedant – According to the subtitles on your video “I had my mates cut in half”. I’m sure we’ve all told our friends to piss off when they’re being annoying but having them dismembered might be a tad drastic πŸ˜†

    @kevinwho

    Very true, but let’s not make a change like that again! 😉

    I’m outraged. Outraged, I tell you (not really). Colin Baker rocks, at least in the handful of Big Finish stories that I’ve heard he does πŸ™‚

    I’d stopped watching DW shortly after Liz Sladen left – not because of that, I’d just reached the stage in life where I had more i…[Read more]

    I’m always around it’s just that sometimes I forget to deactivate my cloaking device πŸ™‚

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas and aren’t suffering the aftereffects of too many sprouts. It’s been quite windy today πŸ˜†

  • FatManInABox replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    I don’t see how not having a Christmas episode is ‘fundamentally changing’ how The Doctor is perceived.

    I’d say replacing William Hartnell with Patrick Troughton was a ‘fundamental change’. Or how about having The Doctor earth-bound and unable to operate the TARDIS. Then there’s the ‘fundamental change’ from a boyish, cricket loving Doctor to an…[Read more]

    @pedant Agreed, it’s my favourite from the various Christmas episodes. This one’s my 2nd favourite taken from A Christmas Carol

    It was used in a Christmas advert a few years ago but I can’t remember the company or product they were trying to push. Ah, the power of advertising πŸ™‚

    Ditto what @Whisht says.

    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 πŸ™‚

    @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]

  • FatManInABox replied to the topic Kerblam!

    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 πŸ™‚

  • 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]

  • FatManInABox replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    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.

    @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]

  • @jimthefish

    is there going to be an in-universe explanation of 13’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.

  • FatManInABox replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    @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]
