    The YouTube 50th anniversary collection doesn’t include any of the three specials in question. It is a compilation featuring the seven Doctors of the original series 1963-1989 plus the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann who appeared  in the 1996 film aka ‘the film we do not mention’ because it was so dire – although Paul McGann was…[Read more]

    Also, YouTube has a ‘50th anniversary collection’ and it has 9 episodes. One of which they claim to be ‘The Day Of The Doctor’. Is this something I should buy to fully know what’s going on? Are they spoilers? Is there a difference between ‘the day of the doctor’ and ‘the time of the doctor’?

    Oh sweet baby Jesus! Thank you so much, so to clarify: after ‘name of the doctor’ it goes night – day – Christmas – S8? Is that correct?

  • syzygy replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @whisht Love that idea: the “Fog Bank.”  Not to harm anyone’s choice of song or one’s own.

    And

    “I hereby decide that I myself will not be offended by the juvenile stupidity of this song.
    Instead, I decide that I will continue to enjoy the stupidity of this song until I realise that I shouldn’t.”

    @pedant HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

    @mudlark

    thank you so much for the detailed reply. I’m looking all over the place for ‘the Day of the doctor’ , ‘night of the doctor’ and ‘Christmas Special’. Do I need to watch these before starting S8E1?

     

    @pedant

    where can I find these three episodes on the inters of net? 😭

  • janetteB replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @pedant Yes just saw that. David Tennant is also doing a cover of the Proclaimers’ Sunshine on Leith. I am always envious of actors that cannot only act but also sing. I abandoned my dream of studying acting at Uni when I found out that the audition included a singing component. I would have had no chance at all.

    Cheers

    @pedant — Ha!  Wonderful!  There’s jargon, and then there’s self-satirical jargon, but such nuances do tend to get lost outside the fold.

    Brilliant Mr P. I thought his reaction was split second. No way I could drop that fast & keep a hair do.  😉

    I think the problem on the web -site were people asking for some happy time? Sometimes removal men who want to take all the furniture. I do not mind it myself. I think furniture is over-rated unless it is my bed.…[Read more]

    @pedant   Wow! That was way too close.  I would have peed myself and then cried. Thank you for waking me up.

    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

    to death.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>@pedant.         Missy didn’t use the term as a pejorative at all. I took her use as short hand for an attempt by the shows producers  to correct a situation which some perceive as overdue. Why you can’t see that is not my problem. Why so angry about it? Relax. Have a beer and smile some. Nobody is attacking you or a…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @pedant  and @roger429      It is my opinion that the decision to make the Doctor a women was motivated not by political correctness but by the things that make it possible to produce such a show, money and audience. The better the ratings the more money to be made. They are trying to bring new people to the show, maybe even female people like…[Read more]

  • Roger429 replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @pedant.         The term is sometimes used in an attempt to correct for a perceived injustice, historical or current. Your substitution doesn’t fit in the context Missy and I were using the term. So, I must disagree to the change as an accurate portrayal. Sorry for your confusion. Keep trying if your so inclined, but what’s the point?   Later

  • Roger429 replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @pedant      Did you or did you not ask what the phrase means?  My response was only to give you a possible answer from those who think differently.  I was not attempting to educate you in any way. I mostly agree with your premises as stated.  And I do remember a few exceptional female leads in dramas on TV in the ’60s, but I also believe your…[Read more]

    @pedant        “Political correctness” means avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.  My guess is that in the context of Doctor Who it could suggest some believed that Doct…[Read more]

    thanks @pedant I hadn’t realised its World Suicide Day.

    A massive issue and one that I won’t make light of (if anything I post has lyrics or tone that somehow jars with anyone its not intentional at all – blame my cack-handedness or tin ear).

    My opinion, as you have yours.

    Bye the bye, could you come up with another ‘adjective‘ I find it offensive.

    don’t know how I missed that on my daily, (hourly) check on the Guardian. Thanks again for sharing the link. I note that he shared the same birthday as Peter Capaldi which is two days before David Tennant’s birthday, which confirms what we believe in our writing group, that all the best creative people are born in April.
