I suppose it depends on your taste. Every episode of Sherlock and every series I enjoyed.
My OH on the other hand, didn’t like the final series either.
<I didn’t take it to heart, after all, it was only fiction.
However, I understand about stress, that’s is how the News makes me feel, so i rarely watch it.
Missy13 June 2020 at 03:50 #70756
I watched “Finding Neverland ‘ the other night and loved it. Have any of you seen it?
Missy13 June 2020 at 03:48 #70755
You are right of course. I think it’s not being able to share things anymore which is the saddest.
Still, I am ‘getting there’ as our kids like to say. *grins*
Thank you for posting.
Missy5 June 2020 at 01:31 #70740
How many times i have said to someone, “I can imagine how you must feel.”
I hadn’t a clue, you have to experience something, then you don’t need to imagine, you simply know.
Your brother was right, grief comes in waves.<
There has been the odd occasion when I’ve thought, ‘I must tell D about that,’ then realised that I can’t.
Thank you for posting.
Missy<4 June 2020 at 05:30 #70738
Thank you .
Our children have been a credit to us. Like me, they still can’t believe he has gone.
I think SM must have written that in remembrance of his late mother. He has/had such a way with words.
Missy4 June 2020 at 01:49 #70736
I can’t give an opinion about the above, not having watched the series since all the good people left.
Such a shame.
Missy3 June 2020 at 05:43 #70730
I can’t think of any other actor who could have been more convincing.
Steven Moffat’s script is one the the best he’s written, if not THE best. There is one line I shall always remember, as my husband died in December.
“It’s funny, the day you lose someone isn’t the worst. At least you’ve got something to do. It’s all the days they stay dead.”
Oh so true, heart breakingly so.
Missy2 June 2020 at 07:23 #70726
Murray Gold, what can one say? Such a loss to the series.
Although I enjoyed all of the themes, the 12th Doctor’s was by far my favorite.
It suited him. A Good Man.
Missy2 June 2020 at 07:14 #70725
Very quick wasn’t it.
Missy16 April 2020 at 03:32 #70467
Thank you Craig, beautiful musical score for Heaven sent.
Also thanks for Peter’s letter. it’s made me miss Doctor Who even more.

I have always preferred Rose to the rest of them and then Bill came along. Now they are equal in my eyes.
Martha gave me the pip, Amy got on my nerves after a while as did Rory, Clara was bit full of herself at times, but I
liked her most of the time and Donna was a treat to behold.
Bill was a breath of fresh air. Some of the lines Moffat gave her were inspired. For instance, when asked in the Pilot why she came to his lectures and heard her explanation:
DOCTOR: And how does that in any way explain why you keep coming to my lectures?
BILL: Yeah, it doesn’t really, does it? I was hoping something would develop.
and when telling the Doctor about the ‘puddle’
DOCTOR: What’s wrong?
(A little later.)
BILL: She said it was a defect, but what kind of defect puts a star in your eye? But that doesn’t even matter because she was right. There was something wrong when you looked in the puddle. That was definitely my face. I see my face all the time. I’ve never liked it, it’s all over the place. It’s always doing expressions when I’m trying to be enigmatic. I know my face, and there was something wrong with my face in the puddle. What could be wrong with your own face?
That’s only a couple.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRAIG! YES, I’M SHOUTING CAN YOU HEAR ME? *grins*
Missy24 March 2020 at 07:11 #70249
Not at all. I was visiting the BBC News to see what Boris was up to and saw it.
Car firms have been asked to make ventilators instead of cars to assist the NHS.
Earlier. I’d read that manufacturers of garden equipment were asked too. It took them a week to be up and running.
Good for them I say.
However, I’d rather they shut pubs than the libraries – here in OZ that is.
Missy23 March 2020 at 08:55 #70240
I watched the Day of the Doctor two weeks ago. Great fun, especially John Hurt.
Missy23 March 2020 at 08:51 #70239
A bit of a smile for all of us. Hope it works

<div class=”bbp-reply-author”><span class=”useratname”>@bluesqueakpip</span></div>
So sorry to have taken so long to reply.
I am not taking any pills at the moment, but if this virus gets me, I shall be in a pickle.
Thanks for advice.
Missy18 March 2020 at 06:58 #70161
Further to my advice above, the latest precaution is that you should now AVOID anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen (Nurofen, Advil) if you suspect your illness may possibly be Coronavirus. Paracetamol (Acetaminophen, Tylenol or Panadol) is still fine.
Well that’s me in trouble if I succumb to this new enemy. I cannot take the Australian drug Panadol – I call it that because anything that is wrong with you here, they push Panadol! it makes me feel sick, gives me heartburn and doesn’t cure whatever ache I have.
All anti-inflammatories and Codeine I can take. I shall have to wait until the experts, change their minds again.
heyho. Good luck to all who have had to isolate themselves.
Stay safe everyone.
Missy27 February 2020 at 00:44 #69871
I agree with you. I wouldn’t want to be the Doctor either.
Then again being a companion isn’t good, the loss of him would be heartbreaking.
Like you, The 12th is more my style. *grins*
Missy27 February 2020 at 00:38 #69870
Emperor Don’t know what happened there?
anyway, sorry, you are quite right.
Missy27 February 2020 at 00:35 #69869
<div>Sorry Craig, you are quite right, didn’t think.</div>
22 February 2020 at 08:17 #69776
Frankly I’m in a minority on here, *grins* PC appears to be the least liked Doctor and I cannot understand why?
For me he was the most convincing, the most endearing, the most human of all the Doctors.
Mind you, Christopher came a close second in the ‘human’ stakes.
David Tennant I found witty and quite mad at times, and I liked him best after Peter.
Matt Smith was a complete nutter, and unless you were bloody minded, a lot of fun.
All of them showed that ‘steel trap mind’ and icy resolve when required.
Why do you like your three?
Missy22 February 2020 at 03:14 #69774
Hello there, at last one I can respond to.
1. Peter Capaldi
2. David Tennant
3. Christopher Eccleston.
Missy5 January 2020 at 01:02 #68813
It seems that you and I agree, as do many, many people who have asked me what I thought- not knowing that I don’t watch anymore. On of my friends called it a ‘parody’ and a very bad one at that.
Still, everyone is entitled to their opinion and all on this forum seem to like it.
Missy12 December 2019 at 00:59 #68509
I’ve had a quick glance through the posts for this year to see if I had mentioned the detective series RIVER?
The leads are played by Nicola Walker and Stellen Skarsgard.
Ingenious story backed up by superb acting.
I’m also enjoying the THOR series. Surprising really, as the only science fiction I enjoyed, was Doctor Who and Babylon Five. Our eldest lent me the DVDs and I find myself hooked?
Chris Hemsworth is great fun as Thor, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki is superb.
I’ve also been soaking up the 12th Doctor again, there is something about him that helps me feel better – wrong word, but all I can think of for now.
Missy12 December 2019 at 00:41 #68508
Very true. the only other actor who reduced me to tears of mirth, was Billy Connolly. Unfortunately he used the F word much too much in the end.
By the by, the scene about the magnet, should have read watch his head IMplode!
I do try to get things right. *grins*12 December 2019 at 00:36 #68507
@thane16 @cathannabel @janetteb
Thank you so much for your kind words. Life is so unfair is’t it?
My OH kayaked, didn’t smoke, didn’t drink.
I smoke and am sedentary, it should have been me.
He has reached the point where he cannot walk.
I shall pop in now and then to join in Un-Who chats *smiles*
Missy11 December 2019 at 06:03 #68502
As you know, I am not a fan of continual swearing, can’t see the point especially the f and c word.
However, The thick of It rates amongst the funniest series I have seen. Peter Capaldi has this way of swearing that brings tears to my eyes.
One scene in particular about face rings etc, where Malcolm grabs a boy whose face is covered in metal, and tells him that he’ll shove a ****magnet down his *** throat, and watch his ***head explode! Reduces me to a helpless mess.
And yet, his off sider Jamie (don’t know the actors’s name) I find very offensive. Why is that I wonder?11 December 2019 at 05:49 #68501
You have my sympathy, as does your brother.
My OH also has terminal cancer and looking at him yesterday in hospital I would give him weeks.
To add to it, he has sciatica and cannot walk.
So my dear, I am on auto pilot and do what I can, as I am sure do you.
All my best wishes to you.
Missy27 November 2019 at 04:03 #68426
Quite understandable. I feel the same about the WAR speech and Husbands of River Song. His lines are so wise and
delivered with such emotion.
What a loss Steven Moffat is to the programme.27 November 2019 at 01:54 #68424
Tell you what. All of you go along with the lack of a title and I’ll keep my Mrs/Miss/Mr.
To be called by my first name (which no one pronounces correctly ) by people I don’t know, to me
shows lack of respect.
When I receive phone calls from, Insurance, sales whatever and they ask is this ……..? I tell them no, it’s Mrs…..!
Up to you .27 November 2019 at 01:47 #68423
If you think of the Doctor’s speech with Missy & the Master on kindness, that really sums up Barthes’s idea beautifully. Well no, I don’t understand that, but it sums it up. I’m very certain of this And that particular speech, showing the range of Capaldi’s ability & tonal control, breaks my heart every time I hear it.
I think however one interprets the ‘text’ it breaks one’s heart.
Well, it breaks mine, and that ‘s not the only speech.27 November 2019 at 01:44 #68422
@winston @gamergirlavatar @blenkinsopthebrave
Something on which we agree.
Whenever I am sad (such as now with my OH, )or feeling off, I always watch Doctor Who
David Tennant to start with, followed by Peter Capaldi.
DT makes me laugh, but PC makes me think, laugh and get teary – thanks to Steven Moffat’s script and Peters delivery.27 November 2019 at 01:37 #68421
It’s bowel streak, a vile misogynistic little shitweasel and noted Angry Virgin. and we are more than familiar with his vile spewings – and you would be too if you ever paid any attention to what people actually said, rather than just getting stampy-footed when people pointed out how gratuitously offensive you are being.
Don’t post that shit here, especially behind a blind link.
I’m offensive? That’s a laugh, re- read your post mate and think again.
A simple “it’s rubbish” would have sufficed.
As usual I get accused of being snide. I simply wanted other members opinions.7 November 2019 at 02:55 #68304
May I politely say, that my opinions are not just my own. Also, they are not offensive – that’s your opinion.
What I find offensive, is being referred to as a ‘guy’ whenever my OH and I go into a shop or restaurant.
Usually beginning with “Hi guys!” be assured that I have mentioned it – very politely.
This whole gender thing is, I suppose, a sign of changing times which many of you feel happy with.
To quote Princess Anne; “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Can’t remember when or why she said it. May have had something to do with Commonwealth.7 November 2019 at 02:38 #68302
Before I am accused of being a stirrer or offensive, this was sent to me by an avid Doctor who fan.
Whether there is any truth in it who knows. I make no comments either way, the media cannot always be believed.
See what all of you think.2 November 2019 at 00:11 #68272
Well, it must be my age, because many of our age group feel as I do. It doesn’t offend me, it makes me laugh.
It’s the people who prefer Actor for a female, and being referred to Miss or Mrs. who are offended.
I am married, therefore my title (on every form) is that of Mrs. Why people are offended by this is beyond me.
If I hear Mayor I think it’s a man. Very confusing when it’s a female. The same applies (in my book) to all the other
titles which are being changed to the male title. Isn’t that sexist? How strange that these females who are so
determined to stamp out sexism, decide to use the male title? Perhaps they would prefer to be blokes? Or perhaps
they should make up their minds what exactly they are.
Oh well, I shall carry on using the correct titles, everyone else can do what they like.1 November 2019 at 23:55 #68271
Everyone in general:
I must be the only person on this forum, who doesn’t agree with Halloween. It’s become very commercialised, with children going around dressed up to cadge sweets. The Celts have a lot to answer for. *grins*
You are right, I’ve watched the clip many times.5 October 2019 at 12:59 #68148
Did I thank you too? if not Thank you.
I’m all over the place at the moment.
Missy5 October 2019 at 12:56 #68147
Because they are actresses. Why not call actors actresses?
Mind you, I could never understand some females getting uptight about being called Miss if single. Ms is just plain daft, and mean the same thing as Miss.
Peter is still favourite Doctor. “grins”
Missy5 October 2019 at 12:50 #68146
Thank you so much, I truly do appreciate it.
We are trying to move home to a smaller house, so you can imagine the chaos. Our children are wonderful,
as I said to my OH, “we must have brung ’em up right!”
However as a famous writer once said :
“When sorrows come they come not single spies, but in battalions”
He is hospital at the moment with blood clots in his lungs! He’ll be home tomorrow.
Missy26 September 2019 at 04:58 #68128
For me, Political correctness means:
Not calling people Wops, Wogs, Yids, Yanks, Frogs, Krouts, Niggers etc. Which I never have.
Then the lunatic fringe got working on it, and we get Spokesperson, Batters instead of Batsmen or woman and Chairperson – one must never say man or woman. *rolls eyes*
I could say more, but I’ll leave it there.
Missy23 September 2019 at 11:22 #68127
@cathannabel @thane16 @janetteb @missrori @winston @ichabod
Thank you – ALL of you for your kindness. I shall certainly look for all the support for the both of us that I can.
We are fortunate in having three lovely children, all ready to help.
It’s the moving that’s terrifying. I won’t be able to pay the rent on a three bedroom house, once – heaven forbid – the inevitable happens. Fortunately we are with Homes West (state Housing) and have been for over 40 years.
They have offered to find us a two bedroom unit, will pay all removal expenses and give us a few weeks rent free.
Missy18 September 2019 at 09:07 #68116
Update on my OH and me.
I am improving, but my poor OH has now been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer.
This proves that there isn’t any justice, I’m the smoker, not him.
Missy18 September 2019 at 09:00 #68115
It’s terrifying what fire can do. You sound too close for comfort. These ‘kids’ lit the fire on purpose and being the woman I am I’d do more than slap their wrists!
The damage and suffering they have caused. Homes lost, innocent animals burned to death. They should be made to help the Fire brigade fight the fires, then pick up the dead animals whose death they are responsible for.
I feel such sympathy for everyone and everything in the fires path.
Missy15 September 2019 at 10:16 #68106
Are you anywhere near these fires? They seem to be getting worse, and some have been lit deliberately.
Missy14 September 2019 at 03:21 #68103
Well, that’s me told!
Pathetic and Weasel words? If you say so.
However, you managed to say all that without using the “F” word once.
As for my dislike of a female Doctor, you all know my feelings on the matter, and I didn’t wanted bore @roger429
Missy14 September 2019 at 03:16 #68102
@thane16 or syzygy
I was neither angry nor pretending to be, simply irritated by the unnecessary use of the “F” word.
As my comment was not directed at you, I can only reply that it was none of your business, and I did not deserve
Missy9 September 2019 at 05:31 #68076
My opinion, as you have yours.
Bye the bye, could you come up with another ‘adjective‘ I find it offensive.
Missy8 September 2019 at 02:59 #68072
Much too late in the series – I fear – we’ve started watching GREEN WING. I dare say most of you have seen this completely mental sitcom.
Michelle Gomez, as Sue White is wonderful – actually the whole cast is wonderful. It’s surprising that they actually made this programme in a Hospital.
What do the rest of you think of it?
