    Alas no,which is fair, as this new one is not to mine.

    Well, I take my hat off to thane – or would if I wore one – my patience is at a very low ebb at the moment.

    Nothing to do with this forum, just the world in general.

    @kevinwho

    And the marathon has just given me Heaven Sent, Hell Bent, and the Pilot back to back to back.  What more could I want?

    Nothing at all, except perhaps for…[Read more]

    Indeed he was and is. How some people can say that he wasn’t a good writer renders me speechless.

    I found it so exciting when River, in one of the above, says “MY Doctor ” and  “you know when you see and old photograph of someone you know, but they aren’t quite done yet.”And you know she means…[Read more]

    Yes, close for me too. Rose has always been my favourite, ever since she said:  “I want chips.” *laughs*

    Thing is, heather saved Bill and put her to the way she was she had a choice.

    BILL: So I’m like you now. I’m not human any more.
    HEATHER: I can make you human again. It’s all just atoms. You can rearrange them any way you like. I can put you back home, you can make chips, and live your life, or you can come with me. It’s up to you,…[Read more]

    Well that’s a relief. Thane is usually so kind and, in some cases, patient.

    To be fair I am  a little embarrassed.  Time, as the doctor will tell you, is the essence and I can’t always join you all (or is it all of you?) regularly. also, I can’t read long posts, I haven’t the time, so I tend to skim, which is what I did with thane’s. You c…[Read more]

    Blimey, who upset you then? That was harsh.

    I can only go by what I have been told as I explained in a shorter post!

    Yes, all of the Doctor’s tried to show us the right things to do all through every series.

    However, as I’ve said already, people who have watched  it (some of them) say they felt they were being preached at.

    Whether we were responding to a troll or not, I wouldn’t know, didn’t sound like the usual. However, I agree with you

    about values. As for Peter Capaldi’s Doctor, he was the most human of all. he felt everything and you could see that he did by his facial expressions.  When nadole says to  Bill :”That’s the Doctor for you. Never n…[Read more]

    I’d say whilst CC is in charge, you won’t be seeing Rachel Talahay.

    I’ve just started re-watching all the Doctors from 2005 .

    @thane16

    As far as I can gather from posts, most of the recent episodes are a lesson in morals?

    Still enjoyed your post. even though we do not agree.

  • Have just watched Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead again, and still marvel at the pure genius of Steven Moffat.

    To link it all together in Husbands of River Song and, in a small way, Doctor Mysterio shows a superb mind and talent.

    God I miss him.

    Allowing for by biased views on a female Doctor, I Read the article, and every point she made applies to each of the previous Doctors?

    More likely she preferred a female Doctor, and that’s all right, but all the attributes mentioned can also be said of the first four males(2005)

  • Missy replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @kevinwho

    Well, it just shows you that bad viewing numbers says more about the watchers than the stories – HEAVEN SENT for example? *shakes head*

    Perhaps CC did ask Rachel and she decided against it. After her comments about SM being a genius (which I agree with ) she may have considered working for CC as a bit of a come down. *grins*

    You are entitled to your opinion, but I would argue the Worst? I don’t think there has been a Worst, just preferences.

    As for Bill Potts to me she was more down to earth than Sarah Jane smith, bit I still liked her, and that’s simply my opinion.

    Thank you  for that, but I meant this last series. I knew about the above, as I always looked to see who wrote an episode and who directed.

    Rachel Talahay is an excellent director, and I wondered whether CC had written anything for her to direct.

    Whilst here, can anyone tell me why Steven Moffat should feel the need to apologise for his…[Read more]

  • Missy replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    All.

    Out of curiosity, how many episodes did Rachel Talahay direct?

    Friends I have asked noticed who wrote the episodes, but not who directed them.

    Chris Chibnall wrote 7 out of 11 of them, I do know that. Russell T. Davis used to hog it too, unlike Steven Moffat he gave others a chance. There again, RTD was a good writer.
