    @thane15 Actually the first Doctor who had psychic paper was 9th.

  • Mersey replied to the topic Knock Knock

    What if the TARDIS is going to be killed or regenerate and the Doctor is growing the new one in the vault? He did such thing in audios, he even told that new Tardis children stories.

  • Mersey replied to the topic Knock Knock

    I feel sorry for the Doctor. He seems so lonely. It’s apparent that he needs Bill more than she needs him. And he has no one except her (and freak in the vault who is happy to hear that someone got killed) and in her normal life he is like a fifth wheel.

    What is the status of Susan? I’ve watched The Five Doctors recently and there was Susan…[Read more]

  • @pedant That’s your argument? With such response you show what kind of person you are, a patronising bully.

    @jimthefish

    I was reffering to the words of @pedant ‘Capaldi and Coleman suffered from the unmistakeable stench of ageism and sexism, respectively’.

    I have referenced to you […]

    @thane15

    Please show me a companion who wasn’t slim and pretty? There’s one, only one, Donna Noble. And I think that’s why she’s perceived as one of the best companions ever. She’s average everywoman but at the same time very unique. Clara was slim, pretty, intelligent, sweet, educated with job and flat, independent, without ties (they tried to…[Read more]

    I don’t know if anyone has spotted that:

    Martha vs. Bill via chakoteya.net

    MARTHA: But are we safe? I mean, can we move around and stuff?
    DOCTOR: Of course we can. Why do you ask?
    MARTHA: It’s like in the films. You step on a butterfly, you change the future of the human race.
    DOCTOR: Tell you what then, don’t step on any butterflies. What have…[Read more]

    I want to emphisize that recism is not only about skin colour but also about ethnicity. Skin color only let racists to identify people of different ethnicity. People who suffered the most during WWII were white jews, the worst of all races and slavs, the lowest of aryan race, inferiors fit only to be slaves. I was really disturbed when I read the…[Read more]

    @jimthefish @mirime @idiotsavon @thane15

    I think we have here two stylistics mixed, the first is drama with all this conversations and speeches about morality, killing and moving on, and the second is comic-book in which bad guys get what they deserve and an urchin becomes an heir (after what had happened with Ashildr, Doctor should be very…[Read more]

    @jimthefish

    Don’t mind me, it’s just my usual moaning. I’ve noticed that because for the last two days I menaged to rewatch the whole season 1 and now I’m watching season 2. Both are full of memorable characters even in the first three episodes. @morpho has pointed out that Thin ice is the Beast below II and I agree but I like Beasty better…[Read more]

  • Mersey replied to the topic Thin Ice

    So far this season lacks characters, interesting and memorable people whom Doctor meet, who help him or quite the opposite, who oppose him. It’s two or three characters show right now.

    @ichabod

    So it’s Barthes’s The Death of the Author vs. Eco’s Model Reader, isn’t it? I’m an art historian (and a painter, have two masters) so loose clues are my biggest enemies. If you enjoy Moffat’s wilderness good for you.

  • Mersey replied to the topic Smile

    @mudlark I think I can have my own view on the matter, can’t I? It’s not all gibberish what I have written. And it was me who mentioned Big Finish’ s Waters of Amsterdam.

  • Mersey replied to the topic Smile

    @jimthefish @juniperfish
    But how much more satisfying it would be if all those clues were relevant, pieces of a bigger picture? There was no meaning in Tarot’s card (were there any cards in the series or it was only a concept from the forum?) and because of that now you sound disappointed and skeptical. Do paintings hold any meaning? I don’t know,…[Read more]

    @jimthefish

    That’s my main charge against Steven Moffat. He leaves too many meaningless cluess (don’t tell me he doesn’t, he does). Look how it works in Agatha Christie’s books or any other really good detective novel. You usually know all the clues, know all the suspects and yet you are still surprised at the solution. And that’s the trick!

    When it comes to the pictures in DW we have another self-portrait, this time it’s Van Gogh’s Self Portrait with Straw Hat, 1887

  • Mersey replied to the topic Smile

    I like Smile better than the Pilot. I like how they succeeded in creating the mood of creepy idyll and the fact that Doctor is stranded in this closed space (like in classic Who). I also like that Bill could show all of her potential and she’s different from previous companions (for now). Funny how they see history. Until the late nineteenth…[Read more]

    @mudlark @smallgreenplant so do I but after months I knew you so well that it didn’t occur to me that you didn’t know me so I do not recall I have ever officially said hallo.

    5th Doctor actually met Rembrandt. Believe me or not (it sounds far-fetched) but today I wanted to listen to Big Finish with Nyssa and Tegan so I chose the first story with…[Read more]

    @wolfweed

    You are 100% right. I haven’t noticed it on my cell phone. I thought the picture is visible only in the first shot and the circles are just darken. But I watched it on my computer and it’s so obvious. The circles definitely have a texture.
