    The Lana Del Ray is the same as similar to Creep. There’s no way round that. The middle 8/12 *cough * reminds me of something .. from Sgt Peppers or Revolver actually. That’s happily nicked, studied as well.

    Hallooo! You called the friendly musician? Please press 1 for sales;  2 for technical difficulty and 3 for possible truth and fact mixed with fun.

    Yep, Jim, the chords of the 50s are as much of a cross-over as the early 60s. And this has happened before.

    Alright! That’s awesome. I mean your response, Ms Mudlark. I don’t think Mum saw it that way (or she might have?) and actually I didn’t either and what was really good in your response was the bit in bold:

    the basis of my criticism was, not that it was done, but that it was done rather clumsily in what was otherwise an anything…[Read more]

    well, that is an unusual handle? jack harkness? Ah, from Capt Jack, I presume?

    Well, the short answer is any time lords can regenerate into different genders.

    And that’s also the long answer. In my opinion it should have happened before and according to the evidence a female regeneration was planned in the 1960s or early…[Read more]

    Absolutely right Mr Blenkinsop. Dad introduced me to that movie:  A Matter of Life and Death

    @mudlark and others: On the issue of over-egging the sexism I thought it was ironic and necessary.

    Mum and I are watching re-runs of The Bill from 1983 to 91 and the continuous sexism is in your face for the 25 minutes episode. It’s…[Read more]

    Halloo to all.

    After a re-watch I read some less alluring comments on social media (but haven’t read these pages yet!) which inherited and bred more of the same: “nothing happens in this Special, the Doctor’s [just] his own enemy. There are no baddies.” It’s frustrating to behold the incapacity of some of those people to capture the importance of…[Read more]

  • thane16 replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    @missy Evenin’ ! I remember you mentioned that awhile back. With this branch of movie/series making sometimes a contract is drawn up including a particular end date?

    So if the new showrunner wishes to engage Murray’s services again then I think Chris Chibnall would seek a discussion about a new contract.

    I remember RTD (on his DVDs) talking…[Read more]

  • thane16 replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    @pedant Yes, “we are all stories in the end.” The ‘how’ and ‘why’ is oftentimes irrelevant. As I said once on the latest Sherlock episodes we know the A and the C sections therefore the B has been ‘done’ or explained and Moffat trusts us to work it out anyways.

    The A to B and A is/= C isn’t to  be confused with Locke or Reid by the way 😉

     

  • thane16 replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    @tardigrade

    On Locke; dualism; and on memory as identity I think that’s why Thomas Reid calls in his (The) Brave Officer Paradox- which considering Lethbridge Stewart, works well 🙂

  • thane16 replied to the topic Twice Upon a Time

    absolutely fantastic piece this was. Puro and I were checking the ceiling for dust. It was modest,  subtle and generous in spirit showing how the Doctor’s changed since his first appearance. As some people above contested, his laughing, jokey and hugging personality IS this Doctor: he no longer needs that carer but now he finally remembers her. I…[Read more]

    Me and Mum are waving hello to you all the way over and above in Canada. After Dad and I visited Adelaide which didn’t have humidity and even when it was 35 it felt like 25 Celsius, made me seriously think of living in South Australia or going somewhere colder. Dad used to walk the ‘beat’ in the London Met and says “get orf…[Read more]

    Hey! It’s good to see you back on the Sofa or couch sprinkling all the gold & glittterrr.

    Meow!!

    I haven’t watched the episode as yet and neither has mum -she’s doing OK but not last night so we are hoping the new DVD player has worked and taped it otherwise we will be watching it on the ABC on a tiny screen.

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @phaseshift I think I missed your show tickets. Congratulations. That’s so beast!

    Me? I’d ask Mr Moffat “when did you really absolutely know you wanted to be showrunner for Doctor Who?”

    That’d be my question. It’s probably a silly one and he’s probably answered it before.

    Have a fab time!

    And happy Christmas to people who aren’t Who Fans too. Because some people may have people in their homes who aren’t Who fans like us and that’s OK.

    Is ‘fan’ short for ‘fanatic’? Coz I wasn’t sure that was a good thing.  If it is short for fanatic, then I think I am one!

    Hey folks.

    thirty minutes to Christmas and as I had a looong sleep I may stay up and lasso the moon!

    Yes, we watched A Wonderful Life and yes I did complain initially and say “Black and white? No!!”

    But I loved it.

    Happy Christmas Who-Fans and love your card @whisht. Awesome clever.

    Yes, I am now 16. And my acne has really set in. On a positive note, my hair is turning curly and I’m taller.
