    Did I thank you too?  if not Thank you.

    I’m all over the place at the moment.

    Because they are actresses. Why not call actors actresses?

    Mind you, I could never understand some females getting uptight about being called Miss if single. Ms is just plain daft, and mean the same thing as Miss.

    Peter is still  favourite Doctor. “grins”

    Thank you so much, I truly do appreciate it.

    We are trying to move home to a smaller house, so you can imagine the chaos. Our children are wonderful,

    as I said to my OH, “we must have brung ’em up right!”

    However as a famous writer once said :

    For me, Political correctness means:

    Not calling people Wops, Wogs, Yids, Yanks, Frogs, Krouts, Niggers etc. Which I never have.

    Then the lunatic fringe got working on it, and we get Spokesperson, Batters instead of Batsmen or woman and Chairperson – one must never say man or woman. *rolls eyes*

    I could say more, but I’ll leave it…[Read more]

    Thank you  – ALL of you for your kindness. I shall certainly look for all the support for the both of us that I can.

    We are fortunate in having three lovely children, all ready to help.

    It’s the moving that’s terrifying. I won’t be able to pay the rent on a three bedroom house, once…[Read more]

    Update on my OH and me.

    I am improving, but my poor OH has now been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer.

    This proves that there isn’t any justice, I’m the smoker, not him.

    It’s terrifying what fire can do. You sound too close for comfort. These ‘kids’ lit the fire on purpose and being the woman I am I’d do more than slap their wrists!

    The damage and suffering they have caused. Homes lost, innocent animals burned to death. They should be made to help the Fire brigade fight the fires, then pick up the dead…[Read more]

    Are you anywhere near these fires? They seem to be getting worse, and some have been lit deliberately.

    It’s shocking.

    Well, that’s me told!

    Pathetic and Weasel words? If you say so.

    However, you managed to say all that without using the “F” word once.

    As for my dislike of a female Doctor, you all know my feelings on the matter, and I didn’t wanted bore @roger429

    to death.

    @thane16 or syzygy

    I was neither angry nor pretending to be, simply irritated by the unnecessary use of the “F” word.

    As my comment was not directed at you, I can only reply that  it was none of your business, and I did not deserve

    such condemnation.

    My opinion, as you have yours.

    Bye the bye, could you come up with another ‘adjective‘ I find it offensive.

  • Much too late in the series – I fear – we’ve started watching GREEN WING. I dare say most of you have seen this completely mental sitcom.

    Michelle Gomez, as Sue White is wonderful – actually the whole cast is wonderful. It’s surprising that they actually made this programme in a Hospital.

    What do the rest of you think of it?

    Hello to you.

    Peter Capaldi was very popular with some  and disliked by others.

    I never had a favourite until he came along, then it was HE who  was my doctor.

    There is no ambivalence on my part about a female Doctor, it’s all wrong.

    I feel that Political correctness played a large part, using regeneration as an excuse.

    As the r…[Read more]

    See if you can get hold of the Tardis  Manual – which I mentioned before.

    It’s pure genius in as much as it is so well written, that you actually find yourself believing that there is such a thing as The Tardis!

  • Missy replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @roger429

    Peter Capaldi’s theme music is superb and matches his character perfectly. I bought Adventure in time and Space, ages ago  and love it.

    As for Jodie Whitaker, I hope she does leave! Bring back a male Doctor please.

  • Missy replied to the topic General Books thread

    @janetteb

    Good idea. I have two others given to me by the same friend.

    Doctor who the Companion’s Companion.

    and

    Doctor Who. Time Lord Fairy Tales.

    However, the Tardis manual is the best so far.

    Thank you for posting, I was beginning to think I was invisible. *sniffs*

    This is after all the forum for all things Doctor Who – isn’t it?

    Missy

  • Missy replied to the topic General Books thread

    For my birthday, a friend – who was as dotty as me about Doctor Who – bought me :

    DOCTOR WHO

    TARDIS

    TYPE 40

    INSTRUCTION MANUAL.

    If you enjoy pure genius, I recommend this book.

  • @thane16 – syzygy   I think Dr Who was confronting Missy? With Capaldi’s Doc? All the monsters could be a hard lesson in life, the monsters a back-drop, a good portion of the time.  Chernobyl is on our order list having been nudged by not 1, not 2 but 3 close mates. I don’t know very much about Lizzie Borden, Missy: that’s pretty scary though.…[Read more]

    I’m not sure what to call you now, so back to the past.
