    Morning All

    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]

    Really enjoyed reading that, I had to look up the insult that was thrown here (on the first episode discussion) and was bloody irritated when reading the explanation.

    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

  • Rob replied to the topic It Takes You Away

    An excellent tale of four monsters

    One who was make believe

    One who paid the price

    Two who were redeemed

    Evening All

    I almost thought that the Tardis was inside of medical ship with all the Time Lord style circles in the white control room.

    The characters we met this week were all pretty interesting with only the exploitation of the android being unresolved or more precisely not even really addressed, bar the comment from the brother apologising…[Read more]

    Excellent link

    @jimthefish

    Apart from the fantastic Rosa I’ve felt the stories are average fare but felt that Whittaker pretty much nailed the role of The Doctor

    Each to their own though and I completely agree with the concept that some are and some just occupy the role

    Rose got a happily ever after though. … eventually……… I think

    My better half observed the warning that the Doctor gave all her companions of not being able to promise safety as being a feminine trait that was new to Who, I can’t think of any previous regenerations warning new companions so bluntly either.

    Pretty good episode,  especially felt for Graham’s dealing with Grace’s ghost.

  • Rob replied to the topic Rosa

    Had to Google that comment made by a complete arse, ‘nough said.

    Superb episode

    I thought that Graham was going to end up having to drive the bus. His reaction to the realisation that he was one of the white passengers (if not the passenger) that meant Rosa would have to give her seat up for was brilliant.

    Ryan’s vanquishing/vanishing of Krasco…[Read more]

    Well, I think it was better than last week, the lethal bandages were a little mumbly or gabbled

    Graham’s character progressed significantly especially when compared to Yasmin and Ryan

    I did a 240 mile charity walk a few years back and whilst stopping for a cup of tea and a slice of cake completed the timeywimey loop and found they had a Tardis hence the avatar

    Yes CC made Gran/Grace was shown to be lynch pin for both Ryan and Graham,  possibly hinted at having more than a passing knowledge of Yasmin too, so the Doctor (who remembered their names, wasn’t rude, showed real empathy and sympathy instant gran replacement maybe?) now has two granchildren and a grandfather (who is too old for…[Read more]

    Welcome @missrori

    Guessing or theories or bonkerising is usually (was willing to be put right by our mods) allowed, insider trading (you know something will happen because you 3rd cousin is the in thd production team or is JW or you’ve seen a something from the next episode even if an official trailer) is somewhat frowned upon

    Well I’ve now watched for the second time in my little white box on my little black rectangle

    Yup Jodie definitely makes the grade as The Doctor

    However I still think Gran’s death was veering close to woman in a fridge, for example, a broken arm in a sling making her unable to hold a gubbins and she sees them…[Read more]
