    Paging anyone anywhere..

    mate of mine is taking a last minute contract at university for 1st years where the topic is, basically, modern Australia. She’s wondering if anyone can add ideas as to what concepts or items are icons for Australia (forgive my bad gramma but it’s “Australia…[Read more]

    I lived in Brissy from 2006 to 2016. I’m now 3 hours west of Gladstone. I kill 12-15 cane toads a night when my shoulder is not completely stuffed, which it has been for 6 months now…. 🙁 . I still manage to kick a couple to death every now and then.

    What’s a good e-mail address for the BBC? or Maybe we could launch an online petition!

    ‘fraid I don’t know about that one….

    I have an enquiry, seeing as I love Laura Linney but not so much Jason Bateman who appears to be in everything, does anyone find The Ozarks appealing? This is the actual Netflix series -not the place.

    Oh yeah. I can’t figure why this has not been done already. Coming to a 4K 75″ TV near you soon ……

    @missy
    I guess that depends on what you call quality. Sherlock is so far beyond this past Season of The Doctor in quality that they are not even comparable. Sitting through 22 C.M. episodes is not what I want at all. My point was that complaining about having to make 10 42 min episodes a year sounds like he really doesn’t want to be there. I say…[Read more]

    I know what you mean. I used to love Blakes 7. I have it here, but also find it a little dated. It would be a great time for some very clever, non Doctor Who, writers to revamp and relaunch the series. Preferably with a happier ending!

    @blenkinsopthebrave How did the cats cope with snow? We were fascinated by the way cats just ran over it in Sweden but they were raised with it.

    @kevinwho now that is some proper bonkerising. My head is still swimming after reading it.

    @missy  Right back at you!  I hope your year is everything you want it to be.

    I overlooked that comment, Missy! Yes, Thane is not only “mostly patient” he is incredibly patient pretty much all of the time.

    Miss me?

     

    I have a few things to show you!

    They made me giggle so I thought I’d share.

    How’s @winston and @missy these days?

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @missy Ooh now, no-one upset Thane. And neither did he set out to be harsh etc.

    You like morals don’t you? If you’re absolutely perfect then I guess you wouldn’t. As I explained upthread, at length, Tennant’s eps were Lessons In Morals. So were Capaldi’s -which, I believe, you would’ve watched at least once?

    I think the issue raised was that th…[Read more]

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @missy

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

    Are they? For me to understand that I’d need to watch them twice 🙂

    As for “lessons in morals” I’m not sure what you mean?

    Lessons in morals ARE what the Doctor does best and has thru every iteration including Whittaker’s.

    You like morals don’t you? If…[Read more]

    @missy According to IMDb, Rachel Talahay directed seven Doctor Who episodes: Dark Water, Death in Heaven, Heaven Sent, Hell Bent, World Enough and Time, The Doctor Falls and Twice Upon a Time.

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

    @missy Thanks. You have not missed a thing by not watching it. I did and each week I was hopeful for improvement. And each week i was let down all the way to a season finale that just completed the misery. I think more people than will admit feel the same but to many scared of this ridiculously stupified PC world and scared of being called a…[Read more]

    @thane16  Puro  . . . a few people thought “the Doc, on a TANK wearing sunglasses and playing an electric guitar?” That’s not gravitas! That’s baloney!” Except we describe him like this: proud and noble, dignified, dutiful, lofty enough to shit marble when I don’t think 12 was like that much of the time. @ichabod -would you agree?

    @missy That’s wonderful! (the purse, I mean).  I think they’re not over because (I suspect) after another 2 years they may well return to a male Doctor. Also, you chat with us -so you haven’t deserted the ship Tardis yet 🙂

     

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @missy

    this season is a series of lectures.

    But you haven’t actually watched it? 😉

    Alas, no, it isn’t. Frankly, if it WAS a season of lectures then good: we bloody well need them. But as I said on the other thread -the Battle of…. (except it’s a long post) I never felt deceived or preached at. The villains are us: perhaps we need to allow the…[Read more]

  • ichabod replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @missy  Although only fiction and an actor acting out that fiction, PC’s Doctor always made me feel safe. Strange isn’t it.

    I felt both the same, and the opposite — never knew, particularly in S8, which way he would jump, or how far he would go, but simultaneously there was no doubt whatever in my mind that this Doctor’s two hearts were posi…[Read more]

  • nerys replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor

    @missy I understand your comments about Capaldi, and I do miss him. But then, I’ve said that about all the Doctors after their regenerations. It’s not enough to keep me from watching, so I do continue on and am finding a lot to enjoy with the current Doctor and her companions. Not without complaints, mind you … but that’s always been the…[Read more]
