    @janetteb and @dentarthurdent   I get how people are protective of their favourite characters, I feel that way about Sherlock Holmes who I think should be a British man as should Watson. James Bond can be a man just let the women in the films be kick ass instead of eye candy. But the Doctor is different, heshe regenerates into totally new p…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  I googled Piha beach and it is a stunningly beautiful place. I love the black sand and the turquoise water. I feel I could walk it forever. The pics were all perfect weather shots but I would love to see it in stormy weather. An angry sea is an awesome thing to see, from a safe distance.

    We both got our appointments for our…[Read more]

    @janetteb   I forgive Doctor Who almost everything. I don’t care if it is sappy, hokey or silly or has plot holes the size of a crater. I have no explanation or excuse for my uncritical love of the Doctor. My kids also tease me as does hubby but I do not care, I am a Whovian through and through. I am OK with my inner nerd and have let her loose o…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   Spring has sprung here in Canada but some areas are “springier” than others but we will all catch up eventually. I have some beautiful patches of crocus in bloom and the colours are so good after a long white winter. The turtles and frogs are waking up and the birds are making nests, and I am starting seeds in the greenhouse so i…[Read more]

    @missy   A very funny scene from a great episode. I like the Doctor making assumptions about Clara’s  boyfriend because he looks a little like his previous self. The Doctor is wonderfully crusty in this episode, just the way I like him

    Stay safe.

    @everyone  Yesterday in Canada we had a some wonderful,marvelous and almost unbelievable good news. A little 3 year old boy wandered away from his Grandpas house and was lost in the forest that surrounded his home. A huge search was carried out by police and volunteers but after 3 nights in the woods they were getting discouraged. It was below 0C…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   I absolutely agree and for some reason when I saw “Rose” for the first time I was totally “willing”  to suspend disbelief and sink into the stories like a warm bath. Other shows can drive me crazy though because I just don’t believe in them. It’s a good thing there are so many things out there to watch, something for ev…[Read more]

    @janetteb     Great happy list!  Gridlock has cat people and singing and all those wonderfully different people living in their vehicles. The Lodger is a fun fish out of water tale with a great cast. I like all your choices and I am going to watch some of them tomorrow while I paint.  I also save the Xmas episodes to watch leading up to the day.I…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   That is why Doctor Who is so good, there is something for everyone.

    My family loved Xena when the kids were young. That and Hercules were pretty popular in Canada.

    @missy I am happy to see you are doing OK. Of course a pulse is important. We are doing fine, keeping to ourselves and staying home most of the time. We just finished doing a batch of maple syrup which keeps us busy and sticky for days. It just tastes so good. We usually get enough for family and friends but the spring weather was too warm so we…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   When Doctor Who visits the past and real or fictional people I am usually happy. As a lover of history the past is a more comfortable place for me. The future makes me far more anxious, it usually involves monsters and corridors and robots.I am waiting for NASA to discover God Save the Queen, spelled out with rocks, on the s…[Read more]

    @nerys   My mother took us to see The Night of the Living Dead at the drive-in way back in the 60s.They used to play a family movie than a not so family movie that us kids were supposed to sleep through. I did not!   What were they thinking? Anyway when I wanted my granddaughter to watch Doctor Who I was worried it might scare her but it did…[Read more]

    @oochillyo  It is great that you are enjoying series 10 so much. It is a good one with lots of good episodes and great new companions. Bill and Nardole are both brilliant and even better together. They are perfect for our crusty 12th Doctor. Nardole gives us comic relief and Bill seems like all of us if we were swept off in the Tardis. there is…[Read more]

    @nerys   It is surprising how scary and shocking that horse head in the bed was. I remember the movie making me feel stressed and anxious for days even though I was a young adult when I saw it. I have a low tolerance for scary movies to this day and rarely watch things that make me feel that way. Even some episodes of  Doctor Who ,like Midnight ,…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   Well you learn something new everyday. I had no idea that the set for Smile was a real place.It looked so futuristic that I thought it was special effects. Next stop is googling the place. Thanks.

    @missy  Hi to you too!  I don’t even like my blankets to hang over the edge of the bed, an old habit from childhood when I suffered from terrible night fears. Maybe that is why I am scared by the unseen threats more than the obvious ones.Like the thing under the blanket in Listen or whowhat bangs on the ship in the same episode and of course the e…[Read more]

    @missy  The Vashtra Nerada  Sure scare the heck out of me. A lifelong coward when it comes to the dark they gave me the creeps! Look what they did to that chicken bone. The Weeping Angels are pretty frightening, who of us doesn’t blink? @dentarthurdent Did you become aware at how many statues there are out there? Even in our little town there a…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Companions past and present

    @oochillyo   My favourite companion changes all the time depending on what series I am watching and maybe even how I am feeling when I watch them. Like when I am sad and need cheering up I will usually watch some Donna episodes because I find the cheeky relationship she has with the Doctor pretty funny. So each companion offers me something d…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  Your daily trips to the beach sound like heaven to me right now. I am up to my waist in snow and my best friend is a Snowman. I have been assured that it is OK to talk to my snowman but not OK if he talks back. We are in lock down but since we are snowbound it makes little difference, there is no where to go.
