    this episode was one of the best horror shorts i’ve ever seen. what atmosphere!

    @thane15  – hello mate. better late than never, right?

  • tommo replied to the topic The Doctor Falls

    So, after carefully putting back my exploded mind i thought i’d leave a comment on my favourite Who forum.

    Loved the whole Cyber-Bill narrative and the wonderful way human emotional sub-plots are inter-woven in a way only Who can do.

    No.1 returns. The Crimbo episode is going to be ‘2 doctors’ scenario then it seems. What a way to send/welcome…[Read more]

  • tommo replied to the topic The Pilot

    A triumphant return indeed.

    I was feeling echoes of Tennants/Davies finest hours in ‘Midnight’ & ‘Waters….’, respectively , in the episodes antagonist.

    The repeating, then absorption of a person plus the endless streaming of water made for a tidy little nod-back to almost a decade ago, (jeez). really, a decade already.

    Great, rapid yet…[Read more]

    @arbutus

    I have been thinking for awhile that in the new year, I want to attempt a rewatch of the entire series from Rose onward, partly to revisit old episodes that I enjoyed and partly to get a look at the older in relation to the newer, and see what I think about it all and how it has changed.

    funny you should say this as i also decided to do…[Read more]

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    very interesting discussions indeed. it would certainly put missy’s final words in episode 2 into some context.

  • tommo replied to the topic The End of Time

    @cybrdragon – i’m totally with you there mate.

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    @notime – i second that entirely. welcome also.

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    how cool would it have been if the man who initially ‘looked after’ the doctor in the desert was Canton Delaware 3rd or maybe the 4th….? 😉
    it would have been a further, secure tie up with that whole impossible astronaut diner setting. speaking of which, @blenkinsopthebrave – invisibility does indeed work with a broken chameleon circuit as that…[Read more]

    @rorysmith – you’re bang on with the Ashildr/doctor theorising scene. i totally imagine moffatt reading this very forum in prep for a scene like that. i think all those theories they bandied were posited on here at some point. it reminded me of that scene in Sherlock (series3) when he’s discussing how he escaped his jump from the hospital roof…[Read more]

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    the ‘run you clever boy, and remember me’ line has that much more poignancy now doesn’t it?

    also, i was loving the sheer amount of whoniverse referencing occuring in this episode. another one i have just recalled is the ‘knock 4 times’ motif from the 10th’s tenure. “they always knock four times” – excellent.

    @puroandson – one word friend. ‘spoilers.’

    just stick with it and watch it through to the end. love from the uk. :)

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    @spider – i suspect not. capaldi has the eyes for sure. i suppose they’ve all had their angry streak but that grief-stricken, subdued, simmering rage was played perfectly by him. it’s a good question though for sure.

    i also loved that Clara’s ending was re-closed so to speak;

    this time it was the doctor who was the victim of the companion. that…[Read more]

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    @pedant – yes, i caught that one too. great nod.

  • tommo replied to the topic Hell Bent

    so much awesome. a couple of things whilst it’s fresh in my mind.

    loved the ‘bad wolf/rose’ theme echoed at one point.

    the doctor finally goes full ‘time-lord victorious’

    so much more but i need processing time….

    well done on another superb series team.

  • @midnyt – that jacket design is awesome. nice one.

    i’ve drawn Doctor 12…

  • tommo replied to the topic Heaven Sent

    has it been clarified at all since the ‘the time of the doctor’ whether the time-lords granted him a full set of regenerations or just that particular one (capaldi)?

    i re-watched ‘time of…’ last night and i don’t think it’s made clear in that. Smith mentions a ‘whole new regeneration cycle’ but that could be referring to that singular…[Read more]

    @brewski – love that link you make from the mind palace revelations into the 4th wall breaking that has been occuring throughout the series.

    i too am looking forward to watching the series in a secondary order if it turns out to be the case that there is a parallel thread concurrently running.

    wow – quantum writing. (moffat rules)

  • tommo replied to the topic Heaven Sent

    @jphamlore – did he have his sonic sunglasses on him at all? i seem to remember a shot of him in a corridor putting them on or am i mistaken?
