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)
But as I’m socially awkward (admitting her own foibles and or a lack of an immediate good answer)
I’ll move over here and work on a control panel (hiding from truth of needing go respond and…[Read more]
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
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
Been a hectic week stomping around in mud and getting occasionally stuck in it too
Come on brains….. well she does have at least 13 different versions the same brain, that is a major resource in problem solving
Micro plastics as mentioned above are not sci-fi and we have ingested them too, so a good message and a call for…[Read more]
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]
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
nuttersWho-rati my sixpence short of a shilling lands heads on an alternative universe Doctor and tails on a prior/subsequent Doctor.
This was one of the best jaunts we’ve had for a long while
The Judoon were more than just stumpy rhino…[Read more]
Evening One and All
(There may be exceptions, caveats and small print, please see below)
Enjoyed this one more
On the whole the Skithra were intriguing monsters, the only negative was the queen’s resemblance to the queen of the Racnos though to be fair this could be as both are arachnids
Recycling weapons, upcycling technology or…[Read more]
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.
That the dregs were originally the poor and dispossessed after the rich and powerful left the mess behind and buggered off to a new…[Read more]
My bonkerising has led me through a convoluted path to the caffeine inspired fact that the Sascha Dhawan Master will become Professor Yana
Hidden (by Jodie Whittaker Doctor as she knows he’ll spend years trying to save the last of humanity) to atone for the crimes against the children of Gallifrey all 2.47 billion
Ohh well it sounded…[Read more]
Happy New Year Peeps
Was away up in Cambridgeshireshire for a wobbly drinks start to 2019 and have therefore only just watched this years only offering.
On the scientifically proven self built Whometer it scored a inspirational 56.78432r (not sure what that is in Rells though)
I shall post later when I’ve had time to think more about the episode
We’ve had the Pting and now a Ptroll
So inbetween slurping coffee running or maybe ruining multiple teams on two sites getting ever so slightly frazzled over seperate site diaries for each contract, some teams doing upto three separate operations on the same site on the same day (this is not a woe is me or look how important…[Read more]
Overall I enjoyed the episode.
I missed the lights on the planet so ended the programme thinking Tim Shaw had destroyed 5 planets and every living thing on them. No evidence of light coming from the stasis planets either, just bits of rock in a capsule, no water, no ice no atmosphere all at odds with the stasis chambers used for…[Read more]
My take on the frog is
Has large slurp of double strength cappuccino
Granny 5 told a fairy tale to The Doctor
In fairy tales when you kiss a frog it turns into a prince and “happily ever after”
The Solitract wanted a kiss to seal the deal, but was doomed to ever be the amphibian of unrequited love.
Hmmm more coffee needed on this theory I think
