• @janetteb  I know exactly what you mean, time is something I could use more of. I really liked the His Dark Materials books and I plan to watch the series, in the new year if I find the time.

    As far as my Xmas viewing goes I am almost done the Who episodes and I just watched a nice movie called The Man Who Invented Christmas about Dickens…[Read more]

    @janetteb thanks, love. I’m feeling pretty pessimistic at the moment (at least I’ll either be right or pleasantly surprised…) dark days indeed. The fact that tomorrow is Friday the 13th really doesn’t help!

    I’m hoping for a small victory at least, that I’ll feel part of. The candidate I’m voting for slashed the incumbents majority from about…[Read more]

    Thank you so much for your kind words. Life is so unfair is’t it?

    My OH kayaked, didn’t smoke, didn’t drink.

    I smoke and am sedentary, it should have been me.

    He has reached the point where he cannot walk.

    I shall pop in now and then to join in Un-Who chats *smiles*

    As you know, I am not a fan of continual swearing, can’t see the point especially the f and c word.

    However, The thick of It rates amongst the funniest series I have seen.  Peter Capaldi has this way of swearing that brings tears to my eyes.

    One scene in particular about face rings etc, where Malcolm  grabs a boy whose face is c…[Read more]

    @thane16 the outline for assignment scoring is written, in my opinion, for advanced STEM students. It’s all quite complicated. The conversation there came about because I was reminding people (and myself) that the first assignment score accounts for only 5% of the taught module score (which is itself only 50% of the Masters) so, not to panic. But…[Read more]

    @JanetteB I never saw S & S (I believe I have 2 DVDs of it. If I can find it, I’ll post one of ’em). Nor Galaxy Quest. That sounds ……interesting! QI was brilliant. Have you kept up with the new series? I love it equally. Another fab female. Speaking of……

    This isn’t really Who related . But as our Jodie Whittaker sang Yellow for CIN I can c…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  and @janetteb    I spent the day curled up on the couch with a nasty cold and as always when I need comfort I watch the Doctor. This time I watched  the last episodes and then the first of all the Doctors.(AG) I still feel sick but the comfort is like a warm and fuzzy blankie.

    @janetteb

    here is the link to the reconstructed episode

    P.s. For some reason it seems to jump about 2 minutes in at the beginning. Just make sure to drag it back to the beginning.

    And here is the link to the “making of”

    @janetteb

    thanks for the link. Both the “making of” docu and the actual episode reconstruction were excellent. And what a particularly dark one-off episode it was. Fascinating to know that the original was the last episode produced by Verity Lambert.

    And all power to Andrew Ireland and the University of Central Lancashire!

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

    @janetteB That sounds brilliant! Mrs Blenkinsop suggested we watch episode 3 of “The Macra Terror” (having watched #1 and #2 last night). Obviously it was great watching animated Jamie attempt to out-run the dreaded Macra Terror as it closed in on him ominously. Episode Four will await the 57th year of Who(i.e. tomorrow).

    @pedant @janetteB  Gawd, do I? I thought it was just the once. I thought this: “it took pedant probably hours to find that!”  Except it didn’t, did it? 2 minutes & I’m blabbing about something I haven’t seen yet. Jeepers. Senility isn’t it. I hope. It’s random stupidity.

    Thanks @janetteb and @pedant I have some watching to do then.
