    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.

    @winston: Yes, me too. At my great age you would think I would have got over it? Not at all.🙄 Yes, thank you, I am bearing up. As I tell my children I still have a pulse!😄 What about you?

    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.

    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*

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

    I saw Jekyll ages ago. James Nesbit, around 2007.

    There wasn’t a sequel or second series  then, perhaps there will be now?

    I too love Moffat’s work.  He also had a genius for tying up loose ends.

    Take Forest of the Dead.

    River, setting herself up for destruction, tells the DT Doctor all about ‘her‘ Doctor.

    He had a haircut and a new suit and took her to Darillium to see the singing towers.

    All of which happens in Husbands of River…[Read more]

    One of my favourite episodes Extremis. Yet another proof of the Moffat genius.

    I laughed out loud at the expressions on Bill and Penny’s faces when the Pope came out of the bedroom!

    Even louder when Penny says “That was the Pope!” 👍

    Hello there, sorry for taking so long to reply.

    I agree, Terry Pratchett would have had a field day!

    However, I must say that the Premier has kept the virus at bay, in spite of all the criticism from other States.

    Terry Pratchett wrote a disc world book called “Interesting times.”✍

    Good grief!

    Whilst they are at it, why not change the title of the show to The Gallifreyan and have done with it!😠

    What about Babylon 5? I found Blakes 7 somewhat dated.

    Also I haven’t seen Game of thrones either. My daughter watched two episodes, told me it was full of violence and sex.

    She didn’t bother with the rest, and neither shall I. *winks*

    Let’s hope it is a hoax, except JW and CC leaving of course.

    I agree PC’s Tardis was by far the best.

    I am listening to a play on BBC 4 Extra called Night Terrace. It ‘s about a house that can travel in time and space?

    Frankly it’s daft! But maybe it’s meant to be.
