    Well of course Blakes 7 is dated, it dates from about the same vintage as early Doctor Who.   And it was notorious for its cardboard sets that would wobble if someone bumped them.    It still had some cool dialogue though (I’m a sucker for clever dialogue and black humour).   In particular the hero (who I take to be Avon) is decide…[Read more]

    @missy @winston @blenkinsopthebrave @janetteb @dentarthurdent Thank you so much for your kind thoughts. I’m worrying, yes. But my father has been dealing with health issues for four and a half years now. They were serious enough that I was confronted by his mortality in a way that I’d not been beforehand. Up until this point, I thought it would be…[Read more]

    That certainly sounds … weird.

    In fact I was going to elaborate on how weird it all was when I came across the source of that report, on DoctorWhoTV

    Jodie Quits! Julia Foster is the 14th Doctor, with Tennant Back as Companion

    – the thing is, it’s dated April 1st 2020. And reading it with that in…[Read more]

    @thane16, I’m so sorry to read this news of your mother’s passing. Hugs as you work your way through this grief.

    @missy, I had the same initial confusion and emotional reaction to Puro’s post, so you’re not alone. Then I breathed a sigh of relief that it was not our dear Puro (though saddened by the news about her mother).

    Speaking of breathing…[Read more]

    I think I share your feelings. I watched Season 11 but it didn’t do a lot for me. Season 12 can wait till a DVD boxset comes up at a reasonable price, I’m in no great hurry. Instead, I just rewatched Hell Bent, and then I was going to follow it with Magicians’Apprentice/Witch’s Familiar, but Last Christmas was on the same DVD so I watched…[Read more]

    @dalekbuster523 That was well said.

    @missy  I am sorry for your loss and sorry for not responding earlier. I never know what to say, “the idiot from Galifrey Base says, our loved ones live on in us but nothing can compare to having them with us.



  • @missy I’ve just seen this, sorry to hear about your loss. It’s a truly awful thing when you lose someone, but the important thing to remember is that the memories and the good times will always be there.

    I’ll never forget the first time I lost someone I was very close to – my Granddad in 2007. He shared a lot of the same interests as me, and I…[Read more]

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    What you recognised in Moffat’s words (a line I hadn’t remembered) are spot on.

    Please take care – you know far more than I will ever know about loss.
    My brother (always far wiser than I) warned me about the waves after losing someone.

    I’ll never forget that forewarning, nor be able to thank him enough.

    Take care.

    @missy  I am so sorry to hear about your loss.  You must be devastated and I will be thinking of you. I agree that line is so true and so sad and I hope you get through this with the love and help of friends and family. Stay safe.

    Murray Gold, what can one say? Such a loss to the series.

    Certainly was. Seguna Akinola is great, but he’s no Murray Gold.

    @missy So far, so good. I work as a cashier in a grocery store, and that has brought its challenges, for sure. We now have plexiglass shields set up at all checkouts, plus barriers behind us so that we’re not in any direct contact with customers (other than handling cash or coupons).

    The main issue is that we are doing so much sanitizing at our…[Read more]

    @missy I just got around to watching the video you linked. Who’d have thought? Zookeeper’s interpretive dance, complete with prop. I love it! Thank you for sharing that. I hope you are well and safe. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missy  That video did make me smile and dance in my chair.. That zookeeper was cute and he had some good dance moves.Loved the fan work and the cheeky ending. Thank you.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missy  Hello!  I am glad you are OK and I hope you can avoid this virus. Thanks for the video, we need all the smiles we can get. Stay safe and don’t get in a pickle.

    @nerys  I am trying to follow my own advice and stay safe and sane. It will be so much easier when it is warm enough to get into the garden and greenhouse. I will be starting mo…[Read more]

    They’re pushing it as a precaution, because they have some evidence that ibuprofen and respiratory diseases like Coronavirus don’t go well together. The BBC have a fact vs fiction page on it.

    The NHS advice is:

    There is currently no strong evidence that ibuprofen can make coronavirus (COVID-19) worse. But until we have more information,…

    The War doctors one my favourites because I love his journey throughout time he’s seen so much pain and felt the darkness and it reminds me of how the world can be at times.
