    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.

    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]

    Such a sensible approach and I cannot fault you on that. Unfortunately analysis of films, stories etcetera, has always been a mystery to me, I simply can’t do it.

    A friend (teacher) once told me that she could teach me how to analyse what I read or saw, but remembering how many times she had looked forward to a novel or a film, and…[Read more]

    Unfortunately, unlike yourself and everyone else on this forum, I cannot watch something I have a passion for objectively. Never have been good at it.

    With me it’s all emotion, like a lot of women – note I said a lot of women, not all. If I love something, change is  “abhorrent”  to me, which is perhaps a strong word, but I feel s…[Read more]

    @ddoherty95

    I didn’t have a preference until Peter Capaldi became The Doctor, I was fond of all three (you missed out Christopher Eccleston. *grins*)

    What surprises me, is why Chibnall didn’t really push the boat out and choose a black actress to play the Doctor? The General (Ken Bones) regenerated into a black women, so why not the…[Read more]

    Craig, thank you for this forum and all your hard work in fending off Trolls.

    I wish you and all the members, A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A SAFE ONE.

    Fondest to all,

    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.

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

    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.
