I watched again last night, and still laughed a lot. Some of PC’s lines are hilarious.
“And has anyone punched you in the face when you’ve said that?” “Six months in your case.”
‘Shut up Hoodie.’ “an ornamental plant stand,” and Robin’s reaction. “Stop laughing and I’m totally against bantering.” To mention a few. It’s the way he delivers those lines.
One scene I found very touching. The village girl who thanks the Doctor, kisses his cheek and his reaction.
Rather moving I thought. One wonders what he was thinking about.

Oh dear! And there’s me thinking I was the chosen one! *rolls eyes*
I add my thanks.
Missy30 August 2015 at 08:51 #42180
It’s taken me long enough, but this is – to my mind – the funniest episode of the series.
Peter Capaldi excelled himself and had me chuckling for most of the 45 minutes.
The Robot Knights were terrific, those faces. I hope we see them again.

Australia IS the other side of the planet. *chuckle*

Many thanks Narvin. Thing is, I understand the first part of your message, but not the last part. *frowns*
The Bluetooth thingy I could manage, but my OH’s mobile is basic, we can’t download anything on to it.
Oh well, thank you anyway.
Missy30 August 2015 at 08:37 #42177
Many thanks for the info puro.
I shall be ready with my leek soup, animal shaped fruit gums for afters and breath bated.
Frankly I like all music from DW, but Rose’s theme, Gallifrey, Mat Smith’s theme and this Doctor’s theme are my favourites.
Missy30 August 2015 at 08:32 #42176
Oh how I envy you. Oh to get close to the Tardis. *sighs heavily*
Missy29 August 2015 at 06:29 #42116
Some really interesting ideas here. Thanks to all of you.
Time is dragging.
My nails are taking right bashing, down to the quicks!
You will doubtless get series 9 before us – as usual.
Missy29 August 2015 at 06:25 #42115
Yes, I live down under – no worries, she’ll be right! *grins*
We’re Londoners, but have lived here a looong time.
I told my OH that if I had a mobile (which I haven’t)I’d have the Tardis sound as a ring tone.
Can you imagine the looks I’d get.29 August 2015 at 06:20 #42114
I knew you’d say that. what a shame.
My OH built me a 2ft high Tardis. Painted it, put on all the stickers, light at the top which goes on. plug lights up inside when you open the door – all I need now is the NOISE! Boo Hoo!

I think that “Listen’ is one of the best episodes yet. Fascinating to realise that some of the Doctor’s fears,
were explained to him by Clara when he was a child.
I can still feel the goose pimples which broke out on my arms, when she heard the man say that the boy crying in the bed would never make a Time Lord, and Clara’s wide eyed comprehension of where she was and who the boy was. Classic.
The one thing which puzzles me, is the plastic soldier Dan? Given to Rupert in the Home by Clara, returned to her by Orson Pink as an heirloom. She then leaves it with the young Doctor in the barn?
Enigmatic? Or is it me?
Missy28 August 2015 at 11:23 #42083
What are they?
Who are you?
Where am I?
Wish I was wherever, whoever, they are. *big grin*
Missy28 August 2015 at 11:19 #42082
Damn! I’m in Australia and all I want is the sound of the Tardis. as ‘the moment’ says, “that wheezing, groaning.”
Missy27 August 2015 at 05:06 #4207627 August 2015 at 05:04 #42075
You know, you can really go off people! Oh well, envy is a dreadfully exhausting emotion. have fun.
Missy27 August 2015 at 05:02 #4207427 August 2015 at 05:00 #42073
Enjoy you lucky devils!
Missy26 August 2015 at 06:40 #42053
You’re right about Kris Marshall, but at times he does come over as slightly mental, which isn’t a bad thing, look at Matt Smith.
Ben Millar my personal choice of the two, he was very amusing in Death in Paradise and hilarious in Robot of Sherwood – without actually trying.
Anyhow, long live Peter Capaldi.
Missy26 August 2015 at 06:35 #4205226 August 2015 at 05:47 #42046
I was thinking. who would you all like to be the new Doctor?
Ben Miller or Kris Marshall would get my vote, both of whom were in Death…or was it Murder…in Paradise.
Both of them are somewhat eccentric and young enough to take the strain.
What say you?
Missy26 August 2015 at 05:44 #4204525 August 2015 at 09:45 #42039
Kill Clara to save the doctor? Interesting idea and a thing that SM would do.
Capaldi’s Doctor has always come over (to me at least) as more human than the other three, with all the elements which make us up.He seems so unsure of himself at a times, and yet manages to to seem completely assured. In fact he’s more complex than the other Doctors.
That say the rest of you?
Missy25 August 2015 at 09:39 #42038
To one who was in at the start (1963) I would begin at the beginning of Series 1 (2005)with Eccleston and Billie Piper. It’s a roller coaster journey and well worth it.
Missy23 August 2015 at 09:19 #42006
Thank you for answering me. Apologies for taking so long to say so.
Missy23 August 2015 at 09:13 #42005
PS. I did get the information from Google, so it’s a bit of a worry.
Missy23 August 2015 at 09:12 #42004
I do hope you are right janette and I think your idea of a mid series is a good idea.
SM and MG wrote a special Sherlock to keep the Sherlockians (of which I am one)happy, so why not Doctor Who?
Or have I got hold of the wrong end of the stick.
Missy23 August 2015 at 06:46 #42002
Sorry, sorry. Sorry sorry – as the Doctor would say. I posted on the wrong thread.
PC must stay for at least 2 more series ……….PLEASE! The waiting is bad enough, but to hear, or rather read,that both PC and SM could be leaving the series, is quite frankly a nightmare!
I am not happy. Not happy at all!
Missy22 August 2015 at 08:09 #41984
Thanks for that puro – what a relief! Patrick also wore a bow tie – cool*grins*
Yes, good to see the Zygons again, lemon sacks and all.
Did you read that Peter is thinking of leaving DW? He said that he knew his departure would be sooner or later,
he thought it could be sooner?
Not happy about that bit of news. what say everyone?
Missy21 August 2015 at 09:08 #41965
Blimey! I’ve been reading your posts everyone and am puzzled.
You mention the Doctor’s ‘plaid trousers?’ I’ve only seen them in the clip for series 9, and yet you write as if it’s already showing – wherever you are? Is it? Tell me I need to know! *chews finger nails*
As for Zigons/Zygons don’t forget the lemon sacks in the tongue.
Missy.20 August 2015 at 12:43 #41936
Interesting videos Craig, but I have to say that BC plays Islington better than Peter Capaldi. I enjoyed your videos just the same. Thank you.
Missy20 August 2015 at 11:49 #41934
I think I get it…I think. *grins* Thank you for explaining puro – may I call you that?
Missy20 August 2015 at 06:44 #41927
I just reread my post above. the Audio book I bought, has Benedict Cumberbatch as the Angel Islington.20 August 2015 at 06:41 #41926
This question may have been raised already. If so I do apologise. There are so many posts, that I cannot read them all – not enough hours in the day or days in the week, so, here we go.
Clara is constantly saying that she has always been looking after the Doctor – saving him in fact. This has puzzled me, and although Steven Moffat usually ties up any loose ends, has he ever explained how Clara managed to be on Gallifrey waiting to recommend which Tardis the Doctor should pinch?
I refer to The Name of the Doctor.
Missy8 August 2015 at 11:06 #41645
The expression “You ain’t half” was used all the time in London when I was younger. As far as I know (I’ve never gone into it) this is simply an expression used by Londoners.
I can understand some thinking it odd and bad English, but for me using the words “I guess” in place of “I suppose” is far worse and extremely bad grammar. surely it should be I’d guess, or I would guess?
Missy6 August 2015 at 05:01 #41573
I notice that Babylon 5 has been mentioned. I really enjoyed this series, much better than Star Trek or Star Wars (films).
However, I was going to mention Merlin, which we’ve discovered rather late in the day, but loving it.6 August 2015 at 04:50 #41572
Rose, always my favourite. closely followed by Donna Noble and Clara.6 August 2015 at 04:48 #41571
@blenkinsopthebrave – stone me, what a mouthful!
Loved the video. Such a funny man. My OH and I are great admirers of the Goons2 August 2015 at 09:28 #41507
Don’t apologise, I’m not on here often and have only just seen your post. How it is that Murray
Gold alswys manages to suit his music to the various actors baffles me. In particular the theme for Peter Capaldi’s Doctor – it’s just him.
We saw the Doctor Who spectacular when it cam to Perth early this year and Ben Foster was conducting, and to listen to the Theme LIVE was mind boggling.
As for Neverwhere, this is an audio disc of a BBC play production written by Neil Gaiman. I believe it’s been done before, so this was a new adaptation. The incidental music is superb.27 July 2015 at 06:17 #41466
I see that Strange and Norrell, has been mentioned. It hasn’t visited these shores as yet. I did try reading the book, but become fed up with all the boring footnotes!
The film looks interesting though.26 July 2015 at 08:38 #41454
Your editor makes a lot of sense janette, even so it’s very embarrassing.
How do I find your message? I should love to read them, but don’t know how to find them.
Missy26 July 2015 at 05:31 #4144825 July 2015 at 07:39 #41403
Apologies if this has been mentioned before. Apart from the classics, you can’t go far wrong with the whole Doctor Who musical score by Murray Gold, in particular the new Doctor’s theme.
Also the soundtrack of Neverwhere. Anyone heard that?25 July 2015 at 07:27 #41402
Hello there linda, I too am new here and just finding my way around.
Isn’t it a relief to find people who can join you in your obsession.25 July 2015 at 07:24 #41401
Wonderful interview. I’m a great admirer of Peter Capaldi, but after this, an even great one.
Thank you.24 July 2015 at 11:59 #41381
Hello again. As I’ve only just worked out how to navigate the board and answer people, I’ve gained more confidence.
However, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to read all your posts, but when series 9 arrives, I shall be in at the kill – so to speak. *grins*
Missy24 July 2015 at 11:51 #41380
Loved this one. The Doctor as the mysterious Architect, I found compelling.24 July 2015 at 11:48 #41379
Very clever idea again. The idea of the Tardis shrinking is novel and Clara suing what she’s been taught works well.
Also, the statement that Clara had been an exceptional Doctor, but that goodness had nothing to do with it, was food for thought.24 July 2015 at 11:44 #41378
When I saw this on TV, I couldn’t make up my mind whether I liked it or not. It was so different.
By the time the second episode was due, I had the set and watched Deep Breath again – and really liked it.
PC has a way of jumping from one subject to another with great ease. One minute he’s talking about his eyebrows ceding from his face, and the next breath he says “Give your coat.”
I think that his Doctor has more human in him than the other three.
