    Anyone been watching the Who marathon on Twitch? I was a bit meh about the whole idea to begin with but I’ve become addicted. It’s like watching an rapid crash course in the BG show. Certainly I’ve totally revised my opinion of Pertwee who as many of you on here will know I was kind of snippy about in the past, but he truly is a terrific Doctor.…[Read more]

    Of course. RL can be a bitca sometimes. Was in no way having a pop at @craig. Just wondering what the state of play was.

    That commentary sounds really interesting, Pip. By all accounts, it sounds like it was a hair-raising experience production-wise. Certainly being a script-editor on those old studio treadmill…[Read more]

  • Have we abandoned this one? Hope it wasn’t my uncharitable kicking that’s the reason. It strikes me that a story about a mentally unstable president being influenced by outside agents to screw up your planet couldn’t be more topical at the moment…

    @wolfweed

    Just binge-finished it tonight and I can guess why it might push the buttons of those who insist on having their buttons pushed. There are a few times when you feel the Moff is enjoying tweaking some particularly sensitive noses. Still no genuine cause for outrage though. Personally, I thought it was marvellous. A genuinely…[Read more]

    Sorry a bit late to this party. The 24-hour inspire looks great. Best of luck with it, and with your lecture.

    If anyone is looking for a fresh Who fix over the agonising summer drought, I’d heartily recommend the new series of Target novelisations, which are adaptations of actual Nu Who stories. Steven Moffat’s The Day of the Doctor is shaping up to be excellent so far, deepening the story we saw on TV considerably as well as being as narratively playful…[Read more]

  • @bluesqueakpip

    Yeah, sorry if that came across as on the overly grumpy side. (For the record, I did watch the rest of The Aztecs and did quite enjoy it — but just couldn’t find that much to say about it.)

    OK, let me try this again and hopefully be a bit less 12th-Doctor-ey about it.

  • I’ve gone on record before as disliking Gallifrey stories in general and it’s probably this one that I’m usually thinking of as the worst culprit. True, as @bluesqueakpip says, it was something of a rush job but I’d disagree with Pip in that I think it shows in almost every aspect of the production. The set design is awful and if there’s one place…[Read more]

    At the moment, for me it’s Heaven Sent, by a country mile….

  • JimTheFish replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @ddoherty95

    Pretty much what everyone has said above. It’s impossible to have a BEST doctor because they’re all so very different and fulfilled different roles in the show’s history. You could argue Hartnell because he was the first. Or Troughton because his is the template from which the Doctor as we know him now essentially springs. Or Tom…[Read more]
