    @winston N.Z has the advantages of being an Island and Jacinta Arden. I think too many people just don’t appreciate how contagious this virus is or how dangerous and governments keep obsessing over the economic damage rather than the human cost. I hope you will be able to see your grandchildren in person again soon. A good friend of mine became a…[Read more]

    @oochillyo   That sounds like so much fun, starting at series 1 and watching them all will be big binge but a great adventure.Depending on how long and how cold winter is I may do that myself. It is a good way to see how each Doctor connects to the ones that came before him her and what shaped each regeneration. Then you can come on here and r…[Read more]

    @oochillyo  I have made my  list of episodes that scared me when I first watched them.  The ones you mentioned were on my list but I also added from the 9th Doctor, “The Empty Child The Doctor Dances” because the little boy repeating “are you my Mummy?” over and over was creepy.The 10th Doctors episodes” The Water of Mars” and “Tooth and Claw” fo…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   I agree that series 11 is hard to get into but I find that happens  for the first series of most Doctors. I call it regeneration shock and it can take awhile to go away. The more I watch the 13th Doctor and her fam the more I like them. I hope that happens for you but we all have our favourite Doctor and some we don’t like as mu…[Read more]

    Hi Declan, since I’m watching them all in order, the ep I’m about to start next (with due solemnity) is  World Enough and Time / The Doctor Falls.    Because I know it’s the end of the season, the end of Bill, Nardole, the 12th Doctor, Missy, and Moffatt.   The end of almost everything, in other words.     (Yes I know there’s Twice Upo…[Read more]

    Declan,  since the alien is, well, alien, then maybe it could be a humongous bacteria.   That’s no more improbable than any other explanation,I guess.   🙂

    Hi Declan

    Up to you if you want to share your thoughts on Kill The Moon.   I’d be interested,  can’t promise to agree but that doesn’t matter.    This is a democracy   🙂

    Hi Declan

    Well, Martha was the only NuWho companion who left of her own volition. I liked Martha and would have happily watched her in another season, but if she had to leave I applauded her decision. It was certainly a ‘different’ way to leave. I suppose having developed a crush on the Doctor, it might have been a little difficult to…[Read more]

    Hi Declan
    Please don’t ‘dread’ Empress of Mars. Nothing horrible happens to Bill or the Doctor. I just think it’s a ho-hum episode that can safely be ignored.
    By the way, I was just plagiarising ‘Pookieuk’s inevitable contribution to the Guardian comments pages of every ep – first message, always, ‘Well, that was no Robot of Sherwood’.…[Read more]

    @oochillyo We are the extended “fam”. I like that idea.

    @dentarthurdent I agree you on most points but not the Tennant/Rose pairing. Their’s is the Doctor/Companion relationship that I like least of AGWho. (After Gap  Who) Series 2 is my least favourite and I find Rose quite irritating in some episodes.

    Three seems to be the magic number for…[Read more]

    Well, I haven’t seen anything past Twice Upon a Time, so far.   (My favourite line, ever, goes something like: “Oh, it isn’t an evil plan.   I really don’t know what to do when it isn’t an *evil* plan.”)     I gather Graham is Bradley Walsh, who I only know from The Chase – from what I’ve seen there he could be good in the role  (…[Read more]

    @oochillyo   Ah, the quest for the perfect companions for a Doctor of your choice. It is so fun and satisfying to pick your favourite Tardis crew and Nardole would be part of mine. I like Nardole, River Song and the 12th Doctor teasing and bickering across the universe.  I also like Donna, Rose, Jackie, Martha  and Sarah Jane  making the 10th Doct…[Read more]

    Hi Declan

    Series 10 ep 6 – that’s where I am.   I just watched Extremis – Pyramid at the end of the world – The Lie of the Land trilogy straight through.   They’re all pretty good, I think, though I think they could have been condensed to a double episode.  As always, I love the flashes of humour with Nardole and Missy.

    I’ll try to a…[Read more]

    Hi Declan

    In The Forest Of The Night doesn’t really bother me with its incredibly rapid tree growth. Maybe because I’m a tree-hugger so the idea of more trees is congenial to me. But I think, more, because it’s biology – something I’m less involved with and less finicky about than physics or mechanics (I’m an engineer). And it’s a bit…[Read more]

    Hi Declan

    I’ll admit right off I’m no expert in physiology and I didn’t do any research on space. I based my answer mostly on physics. I’m starting to question my own assumptions.

    Um, there’s (as usual) a host of ‘answers’ on the Internet, some of which are obviously made up. But one I found…[Read more]

    @winston good to see you out there!

    @blenkinsopthebrave @nerys and… humour be good 🙂

    We’re all still rumbling along in Brisbane with restrictions eased, then returned, then eased…then…then… It’s like a Tardis really. Evolving, regressing, retreating, re-reading. Or re-treading.

    @oochillyo  I like your optimism and I also hope that when this virus goes away we will come out the other side kinder and wiser. Nice people like you will lead the way.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @oochillyo   I agree that what scares somebody is also about who that person is and what they have experienced in their own lives. Some people love to be scared by movies like my 15 yr old granddaughter who tries to get me to watch them with her( I never do) . I am easily scared and I don’t like the feeling so I avoid it when I can. That said, W…[Read more]

    @winston Hi. Hope you are well. We are relatively fortunate in that our state is managing to keep things under control thanks to strict border patrols but we are all holding our breaths and wondering how long it will last. It is so hard for small businesses. some are afraid to re open still as they would not survive a second lock down.

  • janetteB replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @oochillyo  There are some fine episodes in series 11 and 12 but for me, none really stand out as either exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. They are all average to above average. I like “Team Tardis” though I am beginning to find Graeme a bit annoying. Yaz is my favourite of the three and I hope to see her character get more “space” to…[Read more]
