    Belated Happy Birthday

    Great idea to have a later Official Birthday, you are as your avatar shows a person of high birth and that is entirely fitting for you to have as many 50th birthday parties as you desire (quick Who Forum people we all  need to panic buy jelly [for our cousins across the pond that’s jello], just in case Craig pops…[Read more]

    @Thane16 or is it @Syzgy

    It was a good video call, I’m the only one out working as I’m considered a critical worker (and I always thought I was a sarcastic worker so is critical a promotion or demotion?)

    Evening All

    Just popping in before a WhatsApp video call to my Wife, my Mum and my Daughter

    Think I’m going to be nodding and agreeing alot as they’re all fiesty ladies

    It’s not the virus that scares me but those three ganging up on me

    Be good and stay safe everyone

    @phaseshift no apology needed, just had been told that due to the nature of the works a visit may happen,  was just saying that I was now thinking that other far more important stuff would be going on….. and you can trust me to do the job right (honest Guv)

    Well that was a curates egg, good in parts

    I still not sure what I thought of that and as to the reasons why, I shall ponder on and come back to in a future post.

    Late to post on this episode, blaming real life….

    Bonkerising theory No. 47.6

    The baby that the Lone Cyberman picked up and says “Don’t be afraid, little one. You will be like us.” (Quote courtesy of Chakoteya.net a great resource for Dr Who) could be Brendan,  who could be The Lone Cyberman, very much A Timeless Child.

    So the Cyberium is a meta Cyberstamp equivalent which we had absorbed in The Next Doctor and as @Psymon mentioned above the obvious absorption of the Cyberium by the Doctor allows a mind timey wimey Cyber screw too.

    Mind wiping by Timelords, this allows for the possibility of of  Jo Martin Doctor (Dr Foster from Gloucester) to be a future or…[Read more]

    I am greatly enjoying Picard I do have a couple of issues with the burning of Mars.

    The androids are shown as very much lesser than Data, all locked together overnight like tractors in a barn. They are seen and act as interactive tools. There are only two reasons I can see for this.

    1 they are purely talking machines

    2 they…[Read more]

    The comforting/non-comforting of Graham…..

    The Doctor said ( I paraphrase)

    This is where I should say something (acknowledging Graham’s worries)

    Hi all

    Anyone watching Picard?

    Have watched the first 3 episodes and am quietly impressed

    I have a couple of issues with how the Federation has come to being an insular institution but am loving the return of JLP

    Also Craig I’ll download and start reading tonight,  thanks for sharing

  • Rob replied to the topic Can You Hear Me?

    Bit of a manic weekend so only managed to watch this late last night (bits of site being blown around entailing a trip to Somerset and back with added chainsaws).

    We both enjoyed Can You Hear Me, Zellin was properly sinister,  the fingers in your ears, another flashback to hiding behind the sofa.

    Wandering through the Tesco Express on Thursday evening whilst hunter gathering for my evening meal when my phone received a message. The alert for this is the Tardis whoosh whoosh

    One of the lads who worked there, looked at me and said “You won’t fit that back into your pocket”,  we shared some Dr related chat

    Dr Who all about making connections

    If we follow the Oz theory and have the Cyberman as the Tin-man. Then we need the other characters too….. possibly

    Wizard of Oz, The Master? No surely not he’s more likely to be The Wicked Witch of the West (www his use of computers in the episode?)

    Wizard of Oz then is Jodie Whittaker Doctor (or maybe  she’s Glinda) or Rassilon (or…[Read more]

    Bonkerising cont.

    The Master has exceptional hypnosis skills and maybe was in Oz to find some of the Dream Lords pollen put the two together and we get Dallas style dream arc or a Jodie Whittaker Doctor who is not seeing reality but a web spun by the Master.

    Alternatively, this Master is from the parallel universe of Jo Martin Doctor, this gets…[Read more]

    After some reflection (and several large mugs of coffee) and now reading the musings of the nutters Who-rati my sixpence short of a shilling lands heads on an alternative universe Doctor and tails on a prior/subsequent Doctor.

    I think The Green Death probably did the environmental argument more subtly and maybe more powerfully. That is because the message was spread over several episodes.

    I found this episode a curates egg.
