    @blenkinsopthebrave I hope you are safe from fires. Not a problem you would really expect to have to deal with once leaving this sunburnt country. @Winston I hope you are able to stay cool. My experience of living in cold climates is that houses are expertly heated but lack any form of cooling. (We are the opposite, really good at cooling,…[Read more]

    @gamergirlavatar Two of Troughton’s sons are actors. David had one of his first acting jobs in Dr Who when his father was Doctor, The Enemy of the World) and went on to have a more prominent role in Curse of Peladon as Peladon. He was also in Midnight. (David Tennant) He is a fine actor. His son, Sam Troughton, is also an actor but has yet to make…[Read more]

    @pedant I suddenly feel the urge to go to the U.S. (most unusual) That place looks great. Funny to watch Caitlin eating fish fingers and custard. she is remarkably like her cousin.

    @thane16 (Puro) yes I certainly thought so. I don’t have any nostalgia at all for the 70s. Only 1979 stands out as a good year. I was in Yr 11 the class bullies had all dropped out by then, Thank goodness for the young school leaving age. I discovered my love of history and English, had a good friend group and also began escaping from home, going…[Read more]

    @thane16 Oh yes schools in the 70s were brutal. I was bullied for wearing white socks on my first day at high school. I was so confused as to why it mattered. My best friend, whose mother was on a pension would not go to school on casual dress days as her Mum could not afford to buy her Levis. And it varied from school to school too. In our school…[Read more]

    @jimthefish

    Exciting news re’ the Moff’s (and Sue Vertue’s) next project. I did really enjoy the book not least because I read it on the flight to the U.K in 2005, my first O.S. trip in over ten years so good associations. I hated the film. It was a let down in so many ways. Another series to add to the watch out for list..

    Cheers

    Hi @Craig Lovely to hear from you but not so good re’ the job situation. Still being unemployed has its’ benefits as I have discovered these past few years. Trouble is I find I am just as busy if not more so than an employed person but not getting paid for it. What I do is a hell of a lot more rewarding though and hopefully benefits others…[Read more]

    @gamergirlavatar Yes Five-ish Doctors was such a good will project, even getting the actors’ children and Peter Jackson involved. Loved RTD at the end. (I noticed that Peter Davison’s son is now acting in Poldark. I wonder if one day we will see him in Dr Who. Both of Troughton’s sons have had roles over the years,)

    @blenkinsopthebrave Thanks I will use that too. I am perhaps being too harsh about original Star Trek. I have only seen the odd episode having been introduced into Trekdom through Next Generation so my impression is of N.G. not original. I enjoyed watching N.G only to predict how the story was going to resolve knowing that every episode would…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave That is an excellent quote and I might have to borrow it. I am involved in a Cult Tv blog for community broadcasting and next month we are discussing original Star Trek. That quote so eloquently expresses my view of S.T.

    We will get to Dr Who. The “Club” did a first recording last Thursday and it was cut short by a fake…[Read more]

    We are about as series ahead at the moment but I suspect you will both soon overtake us. Our viewing is rather sporadic. Last night we watched Under the Lake and Before the Flood.

    I always enjoy watched the Day of the Doctor. IT was brilliantly done. We often follow it with The Five-ish Doctors Reboot which is delightful.

    Cheers
