    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.

    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*

    I am re -watching Sherlock.

    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.

    @hhspeedy

    In my opinion, the best shot of saving Doctor Who is to bring Peter Capaldi back to make the whole Jodie Whittaker Doctor a dream sequence before he regenerates into a different Doctor. And this time, cast a better Doctor, don’t change his sex, and hire better producer/writers. If you want a strong female character, bring one on as a c…[Read more]

    Many fans didn’t mind the transition from male to female Doctor, I was one of the many who did.

    JW was an added insult as far as I was concerned. I didn’t watch series 11 or 12.

    Now (can’t believe I missed this) Julia Foster is the next Doctor…I though they wanted young blood back….

    Thank you, I don’t feel quite so daft now. X

    As for Trump, I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him, he still has time and power to cause havoc.
