    We should send a request.  Please bring back Blake’s Seven – or rather re-make Blake’s Seven.

    Like I said, repeating myself for some reason…

    You might consider not doing that.

    Try some maths.

    Eleven episodes of 42 minutes plus one of 60 minutes: 524 minutes to be written, shot, edited and SX put in.

    Nine episodes of 50 minutes plus one of 60 minutes: 510 minutes. People are wailing and gnashing their teeth over a loss of fourteen whole minutes of Doctor Who. Why, that’s nearly half one of the older…[Read more]

    It doesn’t matter how much work it is,

    Let me guess: you don’t work in TV either.

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

    @seeoswald

    Thumbs up for that, I should love to watch an updated version.

    @bluffme

    I had a look for this. For a start it should be 12 episodes a year. Split it up? The man is bonkers!

    He should try not hogging the writing, like RTD (although he was fun to watch) and giving more writers a chance as Steven Moffat did.

    I did read that he was…[Read more]

    @seeoswald

    Yes I do and enjoyed it. Unfortunately I watched some on YT and found it to be rather dated.

    Blake’s 7 was a favourite of mine.

    @seeoswald

    It’s called clever. And I’ve been here- regularly for about 5 yrs now, so…you know….read the posts. But you won’t.

    Also you’re my age (when my son isn’t me) which makes some of what you write a little ‘weird’ for one so ‘mature.’

    @pedant agreed. The show was terrific to me too  @bluffme any dismay was totally understandable but…[Read more]

    @seeoswald – Let me add that no one here is going to claim you don’t get to have an opinion, or that it has to match ours.  But you do have to contribute to the discussion here (we keep telling you) if you don’t want people to give you a hard time.

    Go back and look at my first response to you, or others’.  We’re a friendly site, but you can’t b…[Read more]

    Can ANYONE explain…

    Sure.  Make reasoned arguments, avoid unruly emotion, and people will respond similarly.

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

    @seeoswald I’d say that was hands down the best episode of the series. It’s even managed to somewhat impress  some critics of the series, including two very different (can’t emphasise their difference enough) posters on this forum.

    So it’s interesting that you say that because broadly the consensus seems to be that the series has improved in the…[Read more]

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

    @janetteb  I do like Robots of Sherwood. I agree the script is very silly and the ending even sillier. I enjoy it because it is a fun play on the Errol Flynn movie and the banter between Capdoc and Robin is hilarious.

    Me. too — I was happily reminded of a bunch of lurid “historical” movies of my childhood, and I found poor Robin’s uncertainty…[Read more]

    @seeoswald

    You’re back. Personally, I’m SO glad that there are SO many people who are clever, who are thinkers, who are thoughtful who like this new series.

    Things change honey-bunch. And that’s a good thing.

    If you hate it, sweet. More for me to like. As for tweets, the people you like do it: Capaldi, Moffat …. even Whedon. I forget, you m…[Read more]

    @seeoswald – Everyone’s entitled to not just an opinion, but to have their opinions reflect their personal tastes.  While I agree with some of your sentiments, since most of this series isn’t thrilling me either, your arguments will go down better here if you either a) try to present something objective to demonstrate where you’re coming from, or…[Read more]

    It’s nice to see you are the same trolling halfwit you were three years ago, the last time your witless trolling got you into a lather while everyone else pointed and laughed.

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

    @seeoswald

    I think the above is a hint. *grins*

    All of the intros are good, at least i think so.

    Blink? One of my favourites. However, the best one for me was Heaven Sent.  Superb and imaginative writing, excellent acting – which would have been quite a challenge – sets and directing all superb. Both of course were by Steven Moffat.  Ohh, and o…[Read more]

    @seeoswald

    Isnt that Karen Gillan – your avatar? I am assuming you are on the level. The reason for my doubt, is that you are actually criticising the programme?  Very unusual on this forum.

    I cannot say Rubbish, because I haven’t watched any of the episodes, because I don’t like Jodie Whitaker or a female Doctor. However I had to smile because…[Read more]

    @seeoswald   I’ll make my last remarks about Doctor Who here now.

    Anyone wanna bet?  I do wish this Underbridge would toddle off now to eat a goat or two, because my stomach is hurting from laughing.  This “forus” has had such funny use lately that I’m sorry to have missed the fun as it rollicked along like a dumb ol’ ‘merican hayness ride…[Read more]

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

    @seeoswald So little use? Clearly you need to get around more. One or two posts a day constitutes “little use” in my book. But that was feigned indignation, of that I am sure. A common fallback, when all else fails. of trolls.

    As for the quality of the scripts, “eye of the beholder” and all. And Eccleston? We’ll agree to disagree.

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

    @seeoswald    As to the three shows that you have referred to as having “Canadian influence”, well, okay, they were all filmed in Vancouver. I live there and know people in the film industry there, and I can say with certainty that the only Canadian thing about those shoes was that they used local crew and extras, they filmed in our streets, an…[Read more]

    No, you listen to yourself. This is utter tripe you’re talking here.

    I think I’ve got a pretty strong grasp on the Scottish culture and mindset, and, a few jokes aside, it absolutely does not manifest itself in Who. No more than RTD’s Welshness did when he was showrunner. This really is an idiotic argument. Sure, a writer’s…[Read more]
