    An intriguing question, @ichabod.  Perhaps it is not just that the promise has a strong hold on the Doctor, but his loneliness as well.  Nardole is a fine valet, but the Doctor’s loneliness after so much loss still runs deep.  Perhaps he was thankful for something to keep him “grounded”, as it were, instead of curling up into a ball of sorrow.…[Read more]

    @pedant Excellent observation, especially given that the season finale is to be Cyber-centric.

    @joshamus, That vault is a mystery!  Is it possible that whatever’s in that vault might need protection from the universe as much as the universe needs protection from it?  Or even more so?  😀

    @jimthefish  Ooer, there’s too much vanilla entertainment right now, at the movies and stuff.  Though I like vanilla ice cream, so I’d use the word <i>bland</i> instead!  😉

    @thane15 I hope you and Puro keep on keeping on!

  • MissRori replied to the topic The Pilot

    Woohoo!  Yes, what is in the vault?  And what is The Promise that holds the lonely, restless Doctor to it, and would tempt him to give up a new friend in such a painful way?

    Cool to see lots of old school shout-outs (Movellans!).  And the last few minutes were packed with feels.  Bill is already both awesome and sweet as sugar, and I like Nardole…[Read more]

    @jimthefish I tried to leave a comment on your blog post about Twelve, his ambiguity, and how audiences have taken (or not) to him, but it doesn’t seem to have taken.  Anyway, I thought it was very thoughtful and well-written.

    @missy  Sorry to hear you had to put up with bullies too.  And for such a petty reason!  I tried fighting back for a while, but I was the one who got in trouble more often than not.  But turning the other cheek and/or asking for help didn’t work either, and my parents didn’t want to try standing up to the system on my behalf.  All I could do was…[Read more]

    @ichabod Lucky you!  I know there are other people who enjoy Who in my neck of the woods, but we’re not organized, and not all of the Fathom Events screenings make it to my area.  As I recall we got the 3D Series 8 finale and “The Power of the Daleks”, but not Twelve’s most recent Xmas specials.  It does look like the Series 10 premiere/Class[Read more]

    Thanks for the RT link @jimthefish.  So far there have been some interesting Facebook comments on the article too — one saying let’s be kind not only to each other but the people who make the show!  😉

    Me, I don’t think I would have survived in a world of cyberbullies.  I graduated from the horrors of high school just before the Internet really…[Read more]

    Just found out about this — at least in the U.S., the cinema screenings of “The Pilot” (April 17 and 19) are actually a double-bill with the first episode of Class!

    Also, in related news — I don’t know if I’m the only Whovian here who also loves Mystery Science Theater 3000, but even as that show is about to get a revival on Netflix, the…[Read more]

    @missy  They should be airing “The Pilot” (the Series 10 premiere) on TV where you live if I’m not mistaken.  Thing is, in the last few years it’s been common to also have special one or two-night movie theater screenings of “event” episodes of Who, usually a few days after the television broadcast premiere.

    This goes back to the international…[Read more]

  • MissRori replied to the topic On The Sofa (8)

    Cool, someone’s finally doing a Doctor Who “aftershow”!  I wish there was one of those in the U.S.  There are aftershows for Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Orphan Black — there was even one for the ill-fated network drama Smash — but I think this is the first for Who.

  • MissRori replied to the topic General Films thread

    @craig and @pedant  I suppose I’ll have to catch up with Arrival sometime.  I’ve heard almost nothing but great things, and how it’s a movie we need right now.  As for the awards groups, well, they rarely ever appreciate science fiction and fantasy as they should.  Look how they’ve been passing over Doctor Who lately!  😉

  • MissRori replied to the topic General Films thread

    @missy  Well, they both played the Intelligence, after a fashion.  McKellan provided the voice of its disembodied form in “The Snowmen” only, while Grant played its physical host/form in it and later appearances.  :)

    As for Beauty and the Beast, a lot of people seem to love it, so maybe you and your husband will too.  Takes all kinds, and I am…[Read more]

  • MissRori replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @ichabod   Mad times indeed.  (Hugs for those who need them)  One of the saddest things about these disasters right now is that while the officials, etc. in the U.K. are handling this with grace and dignity, it is not a guarantee that those in power elsewhere will.  Many people will turn this into just another political football to kick around to…[Read more]
