    Has there ever been a poll on what everyone’s favourite episode is?

    For me it’s a non-contest “BLINK” wins, hands down. Simply magic !

    Yes it’s Karen Gillan. One of my favourite companions. Guess who the other is?

    Can’t agree about Moffat, MOST of his stuff was good but for Capaldi’s first season Moffat was busy with other stuff. DW got the short end of his talent. When I go back to re-watch DW I’m always going to Baker, Tenant and Smith. Smith is a fine young actor and is my…[Read more]

    Well we are over half way through the season and except for one episode (6) it’s been……… RUBBISH !

    The new “Female” Doctor is an excellent David Tenant clone, but that’s not what I wanted for the next Doctor.

    She is David’s version of the Doctor with  a Female face! There could be worse things and unfortunately there are…… mostly the…[Read more]

    Well it’s clear why this forus has so little use. I’ll make my last remarks about Doctor Who here now.

    I love Who. The first 18 seasons where great. Things went down hill somewhat from there. By season 26 all was lost and the Doctor took a substantial hiatus. 1996 Mcgann tried to be Tom Baker and failed and then it was another 9 years until the…[Read more]

    I watch Suits and White collar, they are Ok shows, good time fillers but they are not GREAT. Doctor Who is/was GREAT along with shows like Game of Thrones, Vikings, Spooks, The Sweeney, Minder, The X-Files, Open all Hours and Danger Mouse. There are others but I’m a little to wiped out remember them right now.

    It’s this simple, I love watching…[Read more]

    Think about this. While you and I will not watch most of the crap the USA produces someone in the USA and a large number of someones must be watching it or it would get canned. Just think about that and then tell me shows trying to break into the American market don’t get dumbed down for a better fit.

     

     

    Have to sleep, night.

    Out performed how? What do you consider to be.. what.. good performance?

    Do these numbers for performance: Total number of shows produced vs total number worth watching.

    British Television wins hands down.

    No I have merged my favourite 2 companions.

    I don’t care if some of the writers of the current series also wrote some of my favourite episodes. It’s clear that they have lost the plot and need to do better.

    I’ve been watching the Doctor since the 70’s. Tom Baker was my Doctor Who and still the best with Matt Smith 2nd and David Tenant 3rd and…[Read more]

    Jim listen to yourself “Just that several key members of the crew happen to come from there.” that brings the influence, like it or not. They are from Scottland, they have a Scottish way about them they think like Scotts. It has an influence.  “The body of work”, more is not better the USA makes more “Comedy” than any other country. But the…[Read more]

    You’ve lost me. I’ve seen every episode that the BBC has not lost.

    On that note how does everyone feel about Missy being the Master, personally I thought is was rather lame almost lazy.

  • seeoswald replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    Joss Whedon’s stuff aside, he IS the exception to the rule. BattleStar, X-Files and Mad Men all have a Canadian influance. Game of Thrones is so good I have not bothered to investigate who is responsible for it. The rest I’ve never watched or don’t consider worthy of watching. People keep telling me good things about Breaking Bad, I just haven’t…[Read more]

    Captain Jack is made immortal by Rose and we later discover, much later, that he is also the Face of Bo.

    River song is Amy Ponds daughter, stolen at infancy and trained to be a weapon against the Doctor.

    Clara Oswald helps the Doctor steal the TARDIS and inconspicuously shows up to help save him countless times throughout his history.

    Sorry Bluesqueakpip (somebody else try typing that without laughing) but you are wrong that was a comment on the writing of Doctor Who as I seriously believe that this seasons writing so below par because it has been dumbed down to appeal to a broader American market.

  • seeoswald replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    JimTheFish. I take note of what you said, but how can you say ” I view the last six episodes, occasional missteps aside, as one of the strongest runs of episodes in the show’s history” and keep a straight face. The Doctor has always been out there and with unbelievable feats of daring do or feats of “linguistic legerdemain and a degree of int…[Read more]

    Ponder this. Name one Sci-Fi or Comedy TV show that comes out of the USA, that’s worth watching, that does not have a significant Canadian influence in the writing, production or cast!

    Americans are not funny and rarely clever and of course if there is anything truly good on US TV it lasts 1 or 2 seasons and gets canned because it’s to clever for…[Read more]

    Well let me see, Clara Oswald and Amy Pond , my favourite Doctor companions, so why not!

  • seeoswald replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    The truly heinous thing is some individuals ability to get past an error that the spell checker missed and of course the fact that anyone could think the writing this season was clever!

  • seeoswald replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    There is no trolling here. A simple statement of opinion. The writing IS the worst the Doctor, and everyone else, has ever had to put up with. Just picture this. A first time viewer starts with season 9 episode 1. WOW! they would never come back for episode 2. I love Doctor Who. I want more of what we had with Tenant and Smith, the writers gave…[Read more]
