    “She seems a little dense to me. I can imagine her driving 12 crazy. “stop trying to swim”, “don’t wander away” “don’t follow strange footprints” etc”

    I love the idea of a weary Doctor, sick and tired of telling Susan what not to do…

    @thane15 – ah, thankfully @craig has explained kerning better than I could.

    Apologies for my rather tired ‘joke’ about kerning.
    I’ll blame tiredness when posting for the lack of ‘funny’, as I think we can all agree that typography is a fascinating subject that can be deeply mined for comedy.

    [ahem]

    For more on typography in Sci Fi, you guessed…[Read more]

    So, I’ve joined in with some people watching The Keys of Marinus on the other thread.

    and I thought “I wonder what was on the radio at the time?”

    I wasn’t around at the time, so I’m using what I think was in the charts (based on this site) but happy (perhaps happier) for people who were around at the time to tell me “well, yes that was in the…[Read more]

    Hooray – New Who (well at least to many of us!)

    So, I thought it might be interesting when we saw a lovely island, then… “The Sea of Death” title.

    (more terrifying is its terrible kerning).

    {shudder}

    Loved the Toy Tardis. Where can I get one??!!?
    The exterior of the Tardis seems grubbier than nowadays.

    What struck me was that the Doctor…[Read more]

    well, I don’t know this musician deeply (others here will, I’m sure). Just a few tracks by Can and collaborations with David Sylvian.

    Although every time I come across anything he’s said, he seems amusing, curious and subversive, the music I came across him first was probably this moody, atmospheric piece.
    Its still one I’ll put on when I’m…[Read more]

    ah @Thane15 – not seen The Mist, but I love Perfect Day.

    I was lucky to know a couple who lived in New York 20-odd years ago and spent a holiday or two with them.

    I couldn’t help but hum this after spending a wonderful day with one of them in Central Park (and a few museums/ galleries).

  • oooh @ichabod , maybe its me but I always think “damsel in distress” which is not what I think of the Doctor (and thankfully we’ve kinda moved on from culturally).

    @bluesqueakpip – oh, isn’t a female doctor a […]

    @bluesqueakpip – sounds good.

    Always glad to hear from people here as to how stories/ writing/ acting has changed, how society that created it has changed, but also how exciting/ baffling it was at the time.

    Is your idea a binge watch or ‘as-it-happened’ week-by-week ?

  • So, I was wondering….
    if [the show] Doctor Who deals in fairy tales, does that make the Doctor the ‘wizard’ of such fairy tales?
    And if it does, then what does a female Doctor suggest…?

    Probably not the […]

    So, a song for Bill.

    Because the aftershow managed to get fixated by hair (and it seemed a gentle distraction here too) I thought this might work.

    Maybe a bit ‘stoner’/ ‘slacker’ for Bill, she’d be more energetic, but… its late and its all I got for now!

    ;¬)

  • @bluesqueakpip – lovely, just lovely.

    More than happy if this was how things happened.
    (As a massive aside to the below I love how 12+1=13).

    ;¬)

    I’ve not much to add to what you said except to wonder […]

  • Whisht replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    apologies not been ‘on’ the forum for a while – though I had thought I’d been reading everything.

    Everything that is except for the Spoilers thread that I don’t go on.

    So thanks @jimthefish for shifting the discussion with @nick about future economy to a more open thread.
    I’m intrigued by it but obviously missing how it began and how its…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    ooh – missed a few of these!

    @toinfinityandbepond – great song – I’ve not heard of Dar Williams before.
    I liked this version I found (prodded by you) as I somehow heard the last verse better – maybe as i wasn’t distracted by the images. thanks!!

    @Wolfweed – I’ll admit to not being a massive ELO fan but I AM a fan of Silent Running!…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    great choons – so one from me!

    cos the Doctor is, right?

  • Whisht replied to the topic On The Sofa (8)

    @jimthefish – that’s extremely kind.

    “Phoebe?

    Phoebe Who?”

  • Whisht replied to the topic On The Sofa (8)

    thought I’d update my avatar.

    did it years ago, but change is good.

  • Whisht changed their profile picture

  • Not much time at present to add anything of value to the news.

    I’ve not seen Jodie Whittaker in any role so have no expectations (not seen Broadchurch either).
    Maybe will re-watch some Chibnall eps while I wait for Christmas!!

    Have no qualms with a female Doctor. My only qualm would be if Chiball is awful or it is a miscast, then some people may…[Read more]
