    Have seen MAYFLIES. Very sad.  Tony Curran actually looks like Van Gogh, have you seen some of his self portraits?

    I have heard of Evil’s Hour, but no sign of it as yet. Anyone watched Stranger things on Netflix? Very well done and funny, especially Dunstan and Hopper.  The Never Ending story  theme sung by Dunstan (D…[Read more]

    You should try him.

    He writes for adults – the Disc World series – and is very, very funny, as well as brilliant.

    Ever watched MERLIN?

    I hadn’t heard of Rick Riordan, but I have all the HP books and all the films 🙂

    I could not resist this! Bound to offend someone 🙂

    I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now, whether I like it or not, makes me privileged, a racist, responsible for slavery and genocide of Aboriginals, etc.

    I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s…[Read more]

    How could  have forgotten Donna Noble? I preferred her to Clara.

    @auntie8nay6. Welcome. I am not on very often, but I read all the posts.

    Unlike @dentarthurdent, I saw the very first episode of Doctor Who. Unfortunately it went to air the same day that JFK was assassinated, however they showed it again on the Saturday and I watched that too! 🙂 Love at first sight.

    I liked all the Doctors except for the last…[Read more]

    They released the fuel, back to the sun because they had stolen it. Only then would the sun release them from its grip.

    The fuel was cargo, they had their own fuel. Think that’s correct? 🙂

    The above post reminded me of a card I once bought for a friend. It ran thus:

    what can you give someone who has everything?”

    Answer:

    “Antibiotics!”

  • Missy replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    HALLELJAH!

    A male Doctor! Now I can begin watching Doctor who again after it’s long absence.

    It will be interesting to see how this new actor turns out.  Time will tell…no pun intended.

    For the moment, I’m content. *grins*

    Yes there is a bathroom.

    If you watch The Pilot, Bill needs the toilet and Nadole suggests that she  waits a bit.

    You see, that’s the trouble with analysis, it tends to spoil the fun of a story.

    Don’t dwell on the logic of the thing, simply enjoy it.

    As son as we met Bill, preferred her to Clara. She had become much too cocky and was beginning to annoy me.

    As for the next series, when oh when will we be rid of JW, she seems to be dragging…[Read more]

    It would be too much to hope for – for me at least – for Kris to get the role. I remember DT’s Doctor wishing he’d been ‘ginger.’

    @dentarthurdent

    His absent mindedness would also be perfect for the role. However, that’s just my opinion.

    Michael Sheen would be pretty good choice too.

  • Missy replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    Hugh Grant? Hopefully not – although he will do at least he’s a male. *grins*

    Hugh Laurie would be more to the point.

    However, everyone knows  my choice, but here it is again. Kris Marshall – and he’s ginger.

    The farewell scene in Face the Raven. Clara touches the Doctor’s cheek. He takes her hand away and kisses it. That scene.

     

  • Missy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @dentarthurdent

    Sorry for delay. *blushes*

    The fact that the ‘hand kissing’ scene was PC’s idea, is what also touched me.

    Me too.

    I’ve been reading the posts, delighted to find how many of you appreciated Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat.

    I wish they would get on and name the 2022 Doctor.

    Stay safe

    Face the Raven, one of my favourites (I know, a favourite is usually one item *grins)

    Beautifully written and acted. the actress who plays “Me” gives me the pip, I can’t explain why.

    The goodbye scene between the Doctor and Clara I find heartbreaking, every time I watch it, and when the Doctor

    kisses her hand, tears come…[Read more]
