    If you were chastising me, albeit gently, you were quite right to. LIKE is the wrong word, how could anyone ‘like’ watching this series? My apologies.

    The worlds is in such turmoil, wars, terrorists, nature, that I refuse to watch anything confronting on TV.

    I retire into fiction.

    Thank you. It has been a rotten year, but there are plenty of people worse off than us – although that doesn’t always help you. *grins* One becomes very self absorbed when in pain.

    The irony is that so many people who have had this procedure, say that the discomfort suffered afterward, is not nearly as bad as the pain…[Read more]

  • I ‘d heard of the Chernobyl series.  It hasn’t been shown here yet, and I don’t know if I want to see such a gruelling series. However, I can understand some people might like to see it.

    We  watched yet another film about Lizzie Borden last night. This was the best one so far and the actress Christina Ricci is a dead ringer for Jenna Coleman. I c…[Read more]

    Hello everyone. It’s been a while.

    Has anyone here ever had a year where health problems come in force? My OH and I have had – and are still having.

    Me with a hip replacement, all the build up to it and the pain afterwards, and my OH with a hiatus hernia!

    The poor man can hardly eat anything.

    That’s my excuse for my lack of communication.

    Sorry for delay.

    I don’t know an email address, but if people are interested, it’s simply BBC RADIO 4 EXTRA

    on you computer. They even have episodes of Doctor who (Tom Baker and Colin Baker) as a play, not visual.

    Whatever your taste, you’ll find it there as I mentioned on a recent post – which people must a have missed or aren’t…[Read more]

  • Hello all, just a quick visit. This is again about Radio.

    As you know, or should by now, I listen to a lot of stuff on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Today I heard a wonderful play by Al Smith called Life Lines (Omnibus) first dramatised for Radio this year.

    If any of you have been fortunate enough to watch Ambulance UK or Australia this series is the…[Read more]

    Sorry never heard of this. In fact the only thing I have seen Laura Linney in, is Love Actually and sadly I don’t remember her. Not that I’ve heard of any of the other films she has been in either.

    P.s. I know this because I looked her up.

    My goodness, I am going to read these. thank you for posting everyone.

    I haven’t read any blogs before, perhaps it’s about time I did.

    Thank you Kevin, I must have a think.

    Does any member in the UK know whether or not The Pancake Man restaurant is still in action?

    We should send a request.  Please bring back Blake’s Seven – or rather re-make Blake’s Seven.

    Quite right about the wooden cyberman, in Time of the Doctor.  The Doctor makes it destroy itself.

    Hello and welcome.

    @miapatrick

    As you know, I too am a Moffat fan. However, I don’t dislike CC because he isn’t Moffat, but because he is Chibnall and I never liked his writing. SM’s sometimes complex stories were right up my street, they made me think and didn’t preach politics, or what I should believe – unless it was subtlety…[Read more]

    Thanks for posting.

    Have seen it  and really rate it. Still waiting for series two. However, I still feel that Jodie (blimey that name gets around) Comer should have won best actress. she was terrifying.

    Thumbs up for that, I should love to watch an updated version.

    @bluffme

    I had a look for this. For a start it should be 12 episodes a year. Split it up? The man is bonkers!

    He should try not hogging the writing, like RTD (although he was fun to watch) and giving more writers a chance as Steven Moffat did.

    I did read that he was…[Read more]

    Yes I do and enjoyed it. Unfortunately I watched some on YT and found it to be rather dated.

    Blake’s 7 was a favourite of mine.

    Our Christmas Day was a breeze, my OH, I and our daughter had dinner at Sizzler. Oysters and all.

    Delicious.

    That’s exactly what my friend says, and if works for you,  it works.

    If I like the characters, find them interesting and care about what happens to them, that’s all I need. If I don’t like a film, play or book, I don’t bother to work out why, I simply go on to the next one.

    In short I enjoy being entertained. If I were taking an…[Read more]
