    Thank goodness for that! The only news which (for me) could top this, is the return of Steven Moffat!

    As for Olly Alexander being the next Doctor (maybe) I don’t care. As long as it is a Male, British and he can act,

    I am content.

    As for JW, if she had been a good enough actress, she could have made up for the bad writing.

    The BBC have got…[Read more]

    Oh yes, he waits to get to his bits! I also love the scene when he realizes that he is ‘Scottish’ and can blame the English for everything.

    Apart from arthritis I’m surviving. The is Covid is really reducing the ‘surplus population,’ how is it where you are?

    Allo, allo was one of my favourite shows. Most of the time it brought tears to my eyes. Remember when Edith used to sing, everyone put cheese in their ears?

    The Australians are good at drama, not so good at comedy, it always seems to be such an effort.

    Mr. C. became MY Doctor when he said:   ” And don’t look in that mirror. It’s absolutely furious.”

    I have only just seen your post, it didn’t deposit itself into my mail box. *grins*

    It has been a joy reading all the positive posts about Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi. I didn’t make comment […]

    Whoopee! The best news I’ve had for a long time.

    I finished watching a series on Netflix last night called Another life. It is science fiction and I really enjoyed it, good news is that there is to be a second series. However to get to the point *rolls eyes* two of the actors in the series were in Doctor Who. One is the actor who played the hero in Doctor Mysterio (sp) and the other is the…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent

    Like you, I judge an episode (or film) by whether I enjoy it or not. If I do, I don’t question it. If not, then I watch again to find out why.

    Unlike my friend who analyses it as she goes along?

    Life is too short and complicated enough as it is.

    Then again, if part of the enjoyment is to analyse, fair enough.

    @dentarthurdent

    I think it helps when people don’t analyse episodes. I either enjoy or don’t.

    An English teacher friend offered to show me how to analyse  stories, films, plays etc – I hadn’t a clue how to go about it.

    I turned her down, she seemed to spend more time analysing and less enjoying.

    Still, that’s my opinion.

    Agreed, I didn’t see it coming either, as you say, obvious and classic Moffat material.

    Chibnall could take lessons from Mr. M.

    I wonder what INSIDE  MAN will be like?

    @blenkinsopthebrave

    Hello everyone. I have been very quiet, but have read most of your posts – except for the one above???

    Frankly, I have reached the point where I don’t mind who plays the Doctor, as long as it’s a male actor and British.

    If this makes me sexist, hard cheese. *grins*

    It’s so  difficult when there are so many to choose from, but no one (I think?)has mentioned THE CARETAKER.

    Not, I agree, one of the most brilliant episodes, but one where the Doctor and Clara finally fit together and some of the

    dialogue among the funniest. Although the episode is co-written, I put the humour down to Mr. Moffat.

    Here is an…[Read more]

    Good to hear from you, I was feeling invisible! 🖐

    I too am afraid of the dark and still make sure that neither foot is hanging over the side of my bed – just in case (as Clara does) someone or something, grabs it!

    Weeping angels definitely frightening and the House, as you say (love that one, trust Neil Gaiman to think of bringing the…[Read more]

    There we disagree. I rate the VASHTA NERADA as the most terrifying.

    River asks if they live in every shadow, and the Doctor replies: “No. But any shadow.”

    I’d rate the Weeping angels second, but at least you can see them.

    How could I forget to include River Song? My over all favourite character after Rose.

    She was more like Jack though, popping in and out, so not really a companion.

  • Missy replied to the topic Companions past and present

    Beginning in 2005. Not in any order except Rose.

    Rose is my top favourite companion – she did at least ask him some questions about himself.

    Donna, she brought great humour and compassion to the series.

    Bill, very sharp and argumentative, but in a reasonable way.

    Clara, I liked her, but she became too bossy.

    Nadole, wonderful! He and Peter Ca…[Read more]

    There are so many that I really enjoyed – the majority being Mr. Moffat’s work -it’s too difficult to itemise.

    However, the one which stands out and is top of my lengthy list, is HEAVEN SENT.

    Superb writing, superb acting, superb musical score and superb direction.

    @deathbycocktails

    Hello there.

    Re: accents. In ROSE, first episode of the new Doctor who series, Rose questions the Doctor’s accent.

    ” If you are an alien, how comes you sound like you’re from the North?”

    To which the Doctor replies:

    ” Lots of planets have a north.”

    So, there you go. *grins*

    Missy.

    I wondered that too, although I enjoyed it – very black – typical Moffat! 👌
