    A laughing gnome? Oh yes! I sincerely hope to see one. And I am not joking! :)

  • Frobisher replied to the topic Smile

    As ever, I generally agree with you lovely people about this episode: Better than the Forest of the Dead, not as good as The Pilot. I felt that the Doctor and Bill were slightly flat at times. In their defence, I don’t think those emoji robots can have been easy to act against. I would be happy to never see the emoji robots again. The nano-robots…[Read more]

  • Frobisher replied to the topic The Pilot

    Hello again, all. I finally managed to watch The Pilot last night on the iPlayer (yay for watch on demand services!), and really enjoyed it. Bill was excellent.

    No real mad theories from me yet about who or what is in the vault. Though I did note that Nardole’s explanation of the TARDIS being a box within a box was said near the vault. I seem to…[Read more]

  • I’m not sure where you are, @missy , but DW was on the 25/12/16 in the UK, so people will have seen that. Maybe you can use the BBC iPlayer to watch it?

    I myself did not see it. Too busy playing with our ten month old! Glad it sounds like it was good, though.

  • Frobisher replied to the topic Hell Bent

    Is it ever explicitly stated that the Rassilon in Hell Bent is a regenerated form of the Rassilon we see fighting Simm’s Master? Could it just be that he is now very, very old? Age can change one’s physical appearance quite considerably, and extreme Time Lord ageing perhaps even more so.

    For example, when the 11th Doctor got very, very old he…[Read more]

    Some very last minute, very bonkers theorising from me:

    When we met “our” Clara (aka Clara Prime) she was a nanny to some children. In “The Crimson Horror” she is seen fiddling with a toy robot in the childrens’ home. That robot is a Transformers G1 Galvatron figure. This jumped out at me at the time because that toy was released in 1986, and is…[Read more]

  • Frobisher replied to the topic Heaven Sent

    I’ve seen a few people talk about the “time zone” line relating to GMT. I doubt the Doctor holds the way in which we mayflies choose to define when we should get up, go to work, go to bed, etc in that high regard. I would have thought that, when mentioning a “time zone”, a Time Lord is not referring to GMT, CET, ACST, EST, PST, etc. Instead, I…[Read more]

    @fatmaninabox

    A belated sorry and thanks for moving the posts from Spoilers. Apologies for taking the discussion “off piste”.

    re. The teleporter / potential multiple copies of the Doctor

    My understanding/rationalisation of this scenario is that during a “standard” teleportation the object that is teleported is broken down into a packet of (incredibly complex) data by the teleporter at the departure point, transmitted to the desired destination point, and re-constructed…[Read more]

    @nerys

    Being a Brit, I am finding the “pants” theory rather amusing, as pants are a rather more intimate garment for us. However, it is strangely appropriate, seeing as we have indeed had some information regarding the Doctor’s undergarments of choice this series – according to The Zygon Invasion they have question marks on them! :)

    However,…[Read more]

    @lewis97

    Now we’re talking! Trouser analysis! With pictures! Thanks for putting that together. :)

    I shall have to ponder this further, as well as the Doctor’s hair length(s).

    @sirclockface

    In the beginning of S9E2 Missy tells Clara about the time when the doctor was alone with a teleport bracelet in a castle-type and in the snippet he was wearing a white shirt with a red velvet long coat. At the end of ‘Face the Raven’ the doctor was teleported to a castle-type place with only a teleport bracelet and was wearing a…

    You can just call me Frobisher, @puroandson. (However, I do like the sound of Mr. Frobisher, so the rest of you can smarten up, get a bit more polite, and refer to me as Mr. Frobisher henceforth. 😉 )

    Sounds like you have tried quite a few refreshing beverages! I expect you will grow to enjoy some of the drinks the rest of your family do – I know…[Read more]
