    I’m surprised the complete Series 10 is coming out so soon in the U.S. because 1) the Beeb has really dragged their heels on the American release of Series 10 Part 2, which comes out Sept. 10 here — I have a friend who doesn’t have BBC America and I can’t chat with him about anything past “Extremis” — and 2) I thought they would wait until after…[Read more]

    @thebetween I like the mobile game Doctor Who Legacy a lot, have you considered that?  :)

    Anyone in or near Chicago, IL should know that the upcoming Wizard World convention (Aug.24-27) will be very Who-focused.  David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Alex Kingston, Jenna Coleman and John Barrowman will all attend on Saturday and Sunday.  :)  WW is a great general-interest media convention anytime (I’ve attended the last two, living a few…[Read more]

    Dealing with the no-PC blues right now.  Wouldn’t take a Windows 10 automatic update and so it’s off to the shop come Monday, second time in less than a year.  :(  I still have my tablet but it’s easier to chat on a PC! 😉

    I’ve been avoiding Xmas spoilers, so I need to find another way to cheer up…

  • @ichabod:

    I’d say it’s not that he’s forgotten everything he’d learned — he certainly remembers what pudding-brains we can be, and scorns us for it — but that he seems cut off from the more positive understandings that 11 had gained.  Maybe that’s what a completely unexpected and wrenching regeneration can do to a TL.

    Yeah, he “took a level in…[Read more]

  • I think the defining characteristic of Twelve is his rawness of emotion, even when it’s concealed behind practicality and frustration (as it is in Series 8; I still have some stuff to catch up on three by year’s end).  Some of which are emotions too!  😉

    Capaldi/Twelve is always a pleasure to watch even in weaker scripts (for me exhibit A of that…[Read more]

  • @mirime I like your attitude with toys!  :)  Yes, the concept of the pink and blue aisles is a relatively recent creation, dating back to the 1980s.  Like you I also played with boy toys as a kid, though I had to borrow them from my brother.

    Also, as far as the Doctor having to explain her new form, she can just say “A thing happened” too.…[Read more]

  • @ichabod Glad to hear you approve!  😉  Your comments are always so eloquent.

    @midnight was one of the few U.S. shows to discuss the news and Chris Hardwick, the panelists, and the audience cheered the choice and, in their usual saucy way, pooh-poohed the detractors (highlighting the “complaints as episode titles” meme).  It cheered me up.  But…[Read more]

  • @craig. I’d like to see some nice stompy boots myself… 😉

  • @arbutus  Okay, that made me laugh.  😀

  • @mirime I feel like you do — Capaldi was so special a more conventional pick wouldn’t have excited me.  But this opens up fresh possibilities and potential, and it soothes the transition.

  • I’m cool with this.  She definitely looks like a Doctor to me!  😉  Really, that intro clip was lovely.  Best wishes and break a leg!

  • MissRori replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    @craig Well, that’s a good point too.  But still, couldn’t they give the end of the Capaldi era a little more breathing room like they did for Ten and Eleven?  He’s not getting any extra specials after all, just the Christmas show; he never got a big “Day of the Doctor”-style adventure.  Unless this Christmas show is feature-length or something…

    An interesting complaint being raised over at Tumblr — couldn’t the Beeb have waited until after the panel at next week’s San Diego Comic Con that’s being framed as a “farewell tour” of sorts for Capaldi, Moffat, and co. to announce Thirteen?  Which would have made more sense.   Now Capaldi, Moffat, etc. will have to field a bunch of questions…[Read more]

    The ones with Bill include some of the stronger ones, specifically “The Shining Man” and “Plague City”.  Best of the Clara-era ones are “The Blood Cell” and “Silhouette”.

    Also, the recent short story anthologies like “Time Lord Fairy Tales” and “Twelve Doctors of Christmas” are fun.  And if you haven’t read Holly Black’s short story “Lights Out”…[Read more]
