    Agree with pretty much all of what you both said @psymon@nerys.

    It was a 50 min trailer tbh. We’ve still got the same questions we had at the start of the episode and more.

    And yes I thought that too regarding Cybermen, they get their hands on the Cyberium so are in reality able to rebuild their empire as it was in ruins… but there’s only…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    @missrori. Do we know how far into the future this is set? Would then be interesting to see how that ties in with other future Earth/human stories. Surely you can’t always say… “time is wibbly wobbly” etc! 😅

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Ah I see, thanks for clearing that up @missrori.

    Think there’s so much to clear up in the last 70 mins of the series… is there possibly to much to clear up, maybe?

    Dont think we’ll be seeing Ruth again this series. I’d imagine she’ll return in a special or S13.

    I keep thinking the lone Cyberman looked like the old Brendan. What did the lon…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    @miapatrick. Yeh I’m really not sure regarding Brendan. That’s why I was left a little disappointed at the end of the episode, there was so much left open. I was more confused and had so many questions rather than feeling excited for next week… but I guess if next week delivers it doesn’t really matter. It is a 2-parter after all.

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    Agree @jomomentor and @bluesqueakpip.
    Originally thought Brendan was Jack.
    But, given what they were doing to him it looked Cyber-ish. Also looks similar to Cyborg bloke so I think he’s the LONE CYBERMAN!

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    Good episode that in my eyes, but left feeling confused with more Q’s than answers. Seems as though a lot needs to happen next week.

    Most enjoyable part for me was opening Doctor and fam scene. Ending was rushed, cliffhanger was over and done with before you had chance to contemplate it. Too much time farting about in the middle on the war s…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Agree @psymon. Think Master and Timeless Child will be cleared up this series, but as much as I’d like to see Ruth again, they could potentially try and cram to much into this 2-parter and ruin it.

    I’d save the Ruth Doc stuff imo. Keep the excitement going.

    @missrori. Is the Cyberium the thing the Alliance sent back through time to destroy the…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Great episode, really really enjoyed it! The writers didn’t get caught up on the spooky element so it overwhelmed the episode. And… love the Doctor snapped, JW was brilliant!

    Just to clarify a few things then, the Alliance sent the Cyberium back through time, how did that leave the Cybermen in ruins though?

    Assuming Timeless child and G…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Praxeus

    Thought the episode was good. Difficult after the expectations raised by last weeks blockbuster.

    Agree with @psymon regarding the difference between Tennant and Whittaker when explaining things. I also always think the best Doctor’s are the ones who demonstrate anger the best. Whittaker doesn’t ever seem to angry, she showed it a little more in…[Read more]

  • Just watched the episode. Sorry to be pedantic but anyone know how the Doctor, Tesla and Skerritt got on the train? 😅

  • Like the bonkers theory @blenkinsopthebrave!

  • With @badwolfalice & @bluesqueakpip on this. Usually when historical episodes have popped up in the past in episode trailers, they’ve been greeted with an eye-roll.

    However, even though this episode was still a little underwhelming (like most in the Chibnall era), I really don’t mind the historical ones in the Chibnall era.

    Cinematography and…[Read more]

    @miapatrick
    I guess we’ll be in a better place to have this discussion post-series. Look forward to it! 🙂

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Spyfall part 1

    Maybe @codystott, but I think Chibnall would be daft to create a Master from another Universe and not carry on or fit them in to the existing chain.

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Spyfall part 1

    @miapatrick

     

    remind me again how they left it with Simms at the end of his original run? (end of time)

     

    Am I right in saying he returned to Gallifrey with the Time Lords. Does it mention in The Doctor Falls how he then go to the spaceship towards the black hole? I recall something about it crashing and him never being a good…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Spyfall part 1

    @winston

     

    i think you’re right Winston. In both instances you mentioned the Master did sort of redeem themselves. Which therefore suggests whatever has happened at Gallifrey could be one of the reasons why the Master so desperately wanted to kill off the Doctor. Having said that, the mannerisms of Dhawan’s Master seem to fit the narrative tha…[Read more]

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Orphan 55

    A few people are discussing on Twitter about multiple timelines (because the Doctor mentioning that Orphan 55 doesn’t have to be Earth), does anyone know if DW has delved into this much before? Whether they should or not?

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Orphan 55

    @bluesqueakpip

    You’re also right about the science. Was way off at times! Frustrating.

  • Ollie14 replied to the topic Orphan 55

    @bluesqueakpip

     

    agree with your assessment.

     

    i liked the start of the episode and their arrivals to the spa. But for me it was spoiled by a pretty weak ending again.

     

    No real unravelling to ‘save the day’ just things happening to fall into place, like the virus mutating with the fuel 3 to make fuel 4. As much as I liked the two…[Read more]
