    Hi Puro @thane16 really good to hear from you again. Glad that all is well up in Brisbane. It is like a yo yo at the moment. We are relatively relaxed here in S.A. but everyone is fearful and unwilling to make any plans. So many events cancelled. It does get a bit depressing but at least we can go out. Pubs, cafes and wineries are open and we are…[Read more]

    @missrori   It is good to see you are okay and I feel the same as you about the endless cycle of work and isolation without some of the things that make life livable. It does start to wear on a person after awhile. Everything is cancelled or delayed or just too complicated or unsafe to bother with.Where I live in Canada (Hi! neighbor) I am a…[Read more]

  • janetteB replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @missrori I agree that this current situation needs to be addressed in the next series and I think it will be. Dr Who writers have tended to blend in current situations and this one has great story potential to be mined. The only problem is on drawing one something like the current situation is there needs to be an explanation for why the Doctor…[Read more]

    Hello @thane16 and all! I realized it was time to check in and see how everyone is doing. My husband and I are plugging along, both of us still working. They just reopened the beaches (with physical distancing rules in place, of course), so that’s a huge relief. Walks on the beach are one of my favourite stress-relievers. I’m looking forward to…[Read more]

    @miapatrick oh jeepers, I shouldn’t laugh about The Brain and Me! You should must write a novel! You put up with a hellava lot & still make jokes? Amazing. I hope you chase up those darn urologists. Widening the plumbing….sounds somewhat painful 🙁

  • @missrori,

    This might sound corny, but you have got us.

    One of the great things about this site is that it is populated by people who are attracted to a show where the central tenant is “to be kind”.

    Some of us, like the Old Syzygy, are coping with stuff I cannot possibly imagine, yet she can share an incredible knowledge and love of music;…[Read more]

    @missrori  @whisht

    Absolutely great advice from Whisht & others. it’s true: life aint fair. I’m real lucky that due to Crohns I have “self isolation down pat” -as my niece said when COVID blew in.

    That was just after devastating fires where thousands of people & animals were displaced. Entire towns with huge histories gone overnight even though…[Read more]

    @missrori  You sound like you are having a rough go of it and I am sorry.First of all thank you for working through this virus,you are very brave. I know that the future looks very uncertain right now and it is good to have something to look forward to. For me that is gardening and I am lucky enough to have the space to grow veggies and flowers.…[Read more]

    @missrori
    In many ways you’re right.
    Life isn’t ‘fair’.

    y’know, that’s kinda about it.
    It ain’t.

    There are wiser folks than I who have built on the wisdom of people over millennia, so I’ll let people that understand that wisdom share it.

    Me?
    Life ain’t fair. I try to roll with the punches.

    The USA federal government is incompetent under this administration.  So is China. So is the EU.

    @missrori

    Yes, I think it’ll be well into s13 before we see any of this stuff returned to. I fully expect we’ll be seeing RuthDoc back in some form or another.

    @badwolfalice

    Yeah, there is already what amounts to a DWEU, I suppose. But I wonder if we are about to get something that keeps that extant but has another branch that can be explored…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip

    Really? Sherlock is currently over a hundred and thirty years old and Doctor Who has a much more flexible structure than good old Sherlock

    Allow me to clarify slightly. I’m not saying that the cultural text of Doctor Who won’t be around in 2063. It most definitely will. I…[Read more]

  • Psymon replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    @missrori I’m not buying that the Irish Garda is a Doctor/Time Lord – despite some similarities with the Police Box visual. Otherwise why would he not regenerate when he was shot and fell from the cliff? As pointed out by @jomomentor the recovery was more Captain Jack in style so lends itself more to him being a fixed point in time and immortal -…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    @missrori. Do we know how far into the future this is set? Would then be interesting to see how that ties in with other future Earth/human stories. Surely you can’t always say… “time is wibbly wobbly” etc! 😅

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Ah I see, thanks for clearing that up @missrori.

    Think there’s so much to clear up in the last 70 mins of the series… is there possibly to much to clear up, maybe?

    Dont think we’ll be seeing Ruth again this series. I’d imagine she’ll return in a special or S13.

    I keep thinking the lone Cyberman looked like the old Brendan. What did the lon…[Read more]

  • Okay, so I had a chance to rewatch this episode – some thoughts on that.

    Firstly, while I’m going to wait and see what next week’s like, I think I may have to apologise to CC for saying his ‘future-set’ episodes aren’t that good. Given the massive amount of information that had to be given to the audience, this was a very well paced first…[Read more]

  • lisa replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    @missrori

    Time is becoming all messed up because the Cybermen are changing it to benefit themselves.

    This is also  how we can have changes on Galifrey and the Ruth Doc and  Master in current time.

    The divergence does seem rather sudden.  Did  the Master destroying Galifrey  have an

    effect on  these new differences too?   Because he gives…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Agree @psymon. Think Master and Timeless Child will be cleared up this series, but as much as I’d like to see Ruth again, they could potentially try and cram to much into this 2-parter and ruin it.

    I’d save the Ruth Doc stuff imo. Keep the excitement going.

    @missrori. Is the Cyberium the thing the Alliance sent back through time to destroy the…[Read more]
