• Loved the clip on CiN last night and it took ages to recognize Dan Starkey!

    I’m of an age to remember the satsumas/tangerines in stockings from Father Christmas too, but my belief was waning when it was […]

  • Magnetite replied to the topic Mummy on the Orient Express

    That was definitely better than the previews suggested – another great episode this series.

    I must admit that I wondered whether the mummy was going to turn out to be Danny – even in the Doctor Who Extra you never got to see who the actor actually was. Not to be, but it was an quirky thought at the time.

    Also, having watched the full version of…[Read more]

    Thought I’d better say a ‘hello’ on here as it’s been a while!

    I hummed and hawed about going to the pictures this time as I’d had a good time for the 50th in a packed house and spent the night in the Travelodge next door (I live in a small town with no cinema). When I first looked at booking I was pleased that Vue was using a bigger auditorium…[Read more]

  • Magnetite replied to the topic Deep Breath

    Well, just got back from the pictures (as we old’uns call the cinema) and I managed to survive the hype and had a great time. There were some genuine laugh-out moments, the depiction of The Half Face man was excellent, the skin airship genuinely creepy, the titular ‘deep breath’ good, and the ending intriguing. Yes, it would have been good to see…[Read more]

    Just a pity that we now find out that they aren’t DMs after all, but Loakes – http://www.britboot.co.uk/

    Peter Capaldi bought them himself in Camden

    What’s all this about a time pair o’ Docs…

    So sorry to hear your news – you and your Mum look after each other when the time comes.

    Oh, and the going rate for that jacket is a snip at about ยฃ800 – even though the Crombie website seems to have crashed already!

    Definitely more Mod than Teddy Boy – no brothel creepers here! (And I’m not that old to be able to remember Teddy Boys the first time around!)

    Long time, no see, etc., etc….

    Pressure of work, blah, blah blah..

    Anywho,

    Well, they’ve finally introduced Peter Capaldi’s new outfit and I think it’s rather good:

    I know we’ve had the Name, Day and Time of the Doctor this year, but it also must be the Time of the Moff – he’s presided over the frankly amazing 50th Celebrations, writing the world record-holding drama simulcast, 3 regeneration scenes, seen the return of Tom Baker to DW, cast a new Doctor in Peter Capaldi and is just about to release to the…[Read more]

    @DiscoStupac – apparently Karen’s wig is made of her own hair:

    although I can’t say I was looking at it too hard.

    Perhaps YouTube will see an explosion of ‘Doctor Wig’ over the next few days…

  • Magnetite replied to the topic The Time of The Doctor

    Well, that was rather splendid, and a great sendoff for Matt Smith, who is now definitely my favourite Doctor – althoughย at least I still shave my head ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So much answered, great cameos from the past, and they obviously held some of the budget from TDotD.

    One minor thought – was Handles channelling K9 and/or Mr Smith?

    Oh, and the ARSE has…[Read more]

    Hope everyone’s enjoying Christmas Eve unless you’re a few hours east of here and it’s already Christmas!

    A bit like @Arkleseizure I’ve been reading like mad of late but not posting. I also was a bit taken with the tick box under the login section – “Remember me”. Very Clara-esque, although it’s not unique to this site ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That wooden Cyberman is pretty amazing. Even if it isn’t real wood but some sort of resin (I’m no expert), it still must be one of the best props in the series. The bit in the middle of its chest isn’t wood though, so the Sonic might have some use ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And from the broadcast times, it looks as if TTotD might have a pretty…[Read more]

    “If you don’t watch Doctor Who you have no soul” – how true ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I worked for 10 years with teens like this in Florida – I now work with Adults in the North East of England, so have no idea – are British teens like this now too? Is that a good thing? Or have I just lost touch with my inner teen ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Magnetite replied to the topic Website comments

    On a different subject, and maybe just for UK viewers, but is it worth putting another countdown on the front page to The Time of The Doctor? 7.30 p.m. Christmas Day, UK time…

    Not sure when it’s on elsewhere, although I’d imagine it’s on BBC America on the same day.

  • Magnetite replied to the topic The Day of the Doctor

    @wolfweed

    Thanks for finding that – just another fun bit of the whole evening’s experience. Are these clips on the Bluray? Not that it would do me any good as I have a cathode ray TV and DVD player – but it would be good for those who can experience the HD 3D thing –ย chin, wrinkles and all…
