• Welcome, @hiker & @oswald !  (:

    @gamergirlavatar @thane16 @janetteb @missy @ichabod So nice to read all your posts, I also “disappeared for a while” and yes, the limelight moves at the traditional 670616629.3844 per hour for sure, for good and for ill.

    I was feeling pretty lackluster after watching the new trailer, which prompted a sad rewa…[Read more]

  • @hiker  @thane16  @oswald  PCap is my Doctor too — happy to join the crowd on this.  He was the Doctor for grown-ups (hence the flat merchandise sales since most grown-ups don’t seem to be that much into action figures etc.), and he made the most of it.  It was a wonderful “most”, too, and I think it will wear well on re-watch well into the futu…[Read more]

  • @hiker  @oswald  @ichabod and many others including @kharis (waving hello).

    Absolutely: Loved PC in this role; loved all the stories -even The Moon As an Egg which, despite the general hilarity, I found rather endearing. And it had Hermoine….? wonderful actress who isn’t seen often enough (on telly at least).

    Still, looking forward to the nex…[Read more]

    It’s nice to see someone else shares the same sentiments that I do! I’ve always felt like Capaldi has been really neglected by people despite him being the perfect Doctor, really. I’m just glad I’m not alone in my love for him and the amazing character he created.

    @blenkinsopthebrave @winston @hiker and to everyone else.

    Unfortunately the login issue is something I have no control over – I get locked out by it too.

    It’s a security issue, as WordPress sites have been under attack since December when there was a massive databreach of 1.4 billion usernames and…[Read more]

    Away from the party for a few days…There are some very moving posts above, and am especially grateful to @ichabod and  @cathannabel for sharing their stories.

    I was fortunate enough to get to a cinema show last week, and thought Rachel Talalay’s direction was even more impressive on a big screen than on TV. The shots up and down the sta…[Read more]

  • ichabod replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    @puro  Despite their youth (and I certainly don’t speak for all) they’re not always equipped for subtlety and in their wish for youthful easy action they’re stolid, conservatively prurient and just a bit-behind-the-times. They miss the magical enactment of two Doctors making a decision, one creating the other; all moderated by Bill Potts. The 1s…[Read more]

  • @jimthefish — Aargghh!  Lime green?  I hope someone was put in the stocks for that.

    @missy   I never was good at writing down my emotional response to anything. I simply feel.

    Well, that’s what us hyper-verbals do in the world: put it out there for people to recognize as their own; or, just as importantly, not, or not quite.

    For those who th…[Read more]

    Me and Mum are waving hello to you all the way over and above in Canada. After Dad and I visited Adelaide which didn’t have humidity and even when it was 35 it felt like 25 Celsius, made me seriously think of living in South Australia or going somewhere colder. Dad used to walk the ‘beat’ in the London Met and says “get orf…[Read more]

    @janetteb: Amen to that and thank you.

    @gamergirlavatar: thank you

    @hiker: Ta muchly – I was almost happy until you mention Time!


  • @hiker:

    I’m in two minds, part, like you, is looking forward to the special, but the other part is dreading it. *shudder*

    I shall buy it separately this time.


  • @hiker and @michaeljack

    Thanks for the links.


  • nerys replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @hiker You and I are of like mind. I too find comfort in the words of Dan Rather. At least it makes me feel I am not alone. (P.S. I’ll bet you already know a lot about being kind.)

  • Missy replied to the topic The Maldovarium


    I agree with @bluesqueakpip. I rarely watch the news, and only read one newspaper The International Express – our British members will no that one.

    @missrori: Well, I agree with your mother about JD, but nothing else. All I can offer, and it isn’t easy, is stick to what your gut tells you. Don’t listen to anyone else, just you sense of…[Read more]

  • MissRori replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @craig @hiker @thane15 @bluesqueakpip  Thanks for the support.

    I already try to keep up with those shows you mentioned Craig — I’ve followed some of them for years now — but it’s getting harder because I work nights and Mom notices if I have used the On Demand system on our cable boxes to catch up during the day.  She says I “better stop w…[Read more]

  • Missy replied to the topic Website comments (2)


    As said, a great countdown. Also more PC then no PC – I hate it.



  • Missy replied to the topic The Doctor Falls

    @hiker: Knowing Steven Moffat, it will be a doozy!

    @ichabod: That’s how I read it too.

    @missrori; What would be wnderful is if someone tells him about Missy’s change of heart.


  • Missy replied to the topic The Doctor Falls


    You could be right. Perhaps he thought that enough was enough.

    @hiker: I have high hopes for the Christmas special. I’ll miss Capaldi. I hope he hits it out of the park!

    If anyone can, he can.


  • ichabod replied to the topic The Doctor Falls

    @hiker  . . . I took it as ‘I won’t change again, I want to stay as I am or die.’

    An echo of CyberBill, “I don’t want to live if I can’t be me.”

  • @hiker  He does know Clara exists, which is more than we can say for Donna, and knowledge of that feeling is enough to prevent him from doing the same to Bill.

    Yep; this is deep learning, to come from experiences no longer consciously remembered, so it is a signal itself that the Twelve/Clara relationship was a particularly powerful one.  What m…[Read more]
