    @nerys Yes I caught that too. She did ask for cash.

    @mudlark yes the theme was very much about loss and how we handle that and I think Ryan’s loss of his grandmother and the absent father will be an ongoing “concern” of this series. There may be no ongoing story arc as such but I think there will be ongoing themes and character development arcs.…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip Now that is an idea, Ryan could be River’s son. We are told his mother is dead however that would make Grace the Doctor’s mother which does not really work, not unless Chibnell is going to revive the Doctor as half human or reveal that Grace is really a Timelord. Either of course is possible and both, particularly the later, would…[Read more]

    @troysgorline I wondered about that too but think it is more a funny throwaway line.  Still I don’t expect we will be encountering UNIT in this series.

    We re watched last night with the family. Second son, R.2, was impressed. His only criticisms were that there were several cut scenes that needed more lead in. He liked the Doctor and companions.…[Read more]

    Finally got to watch the episode… and loved it. There was one really scary bit, when she leapt up from the sofa and the alarm was going off. It took a few seconds before everyone in the room realised that the alarm was outside and not part of the show it was timed so perfectly.

    Jodie Whittaker is good. I was worried at first but within ten…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave Sorry to hear about your “Who” related problems.The lunacy our our current government only gets more and more extreme. One would laugh if the outcomes were not so destructive, for the population and for the environment. I don’t know what upsets me more the government or the fools who keep voting them in. At least here in SA we…[Read more]

    @miapatrick Good to hear from you again. We have missed you too. I hope that you and boyfriend both enjoy this series equally. I suspect at at least one of our sons will enjoy it more, another less. He has been watching Chibnell’s previous episodes and is not confident. However the second son did not really enjoy Moffat’s story writing style and I…[Read more]

    @bambi70006 welcome to the forum.

    I feel the same way these days about being Australian. I would apologise for our current government only I have actively campaigned against them so I feel I should not have to. Instead I apologise for those Australians who were conned by Murdoch Press into voting them in and  I think all Australians need to…[Read more]

    I got 19/25 for the classic Who test but a rather embarrassing 19/30 for the AG one. I thought it would be the other way around.

    cheers

    @missy when it comes to diet, yes expert advice is shaky and common sense is the best approach. However.. that is not the case with most areas of Science. The consensus on global warming is long standing. Global warming was first noted over a hundred years ago, perhaps because there is concrete evidence whereas when it comes to the human body…[Read more]

    Have fingers crossed for you @cathannabel

    Sad news regarding the death of Jacqueline Pierce, AKA Servalon. She was instrumental to the success of Blake’s 7 and excellent in the few other roles I saw her in. She was a very disturbing Rosa Dartle in David Copperfield.

    There was an article about Jenna Coleman in the Guardian the other day. Nice to…[Read more]
