    @cathannabel   I am so sorry for the loss you have suffered. I understand completely that feeling of being in a fog and trying to get clear of it. There is little I can say that will help you get through this except I am thinking of you. We will be here anytime you need us to be.

    @beechgirl10      Hello and welcome from a neighbour up in Canada and a fellow nerd and Whovian. I think you have landed in the right place. Have fun reading and commenting on all the episodes you have watched. They go back to the 9th Doctor and I learned a lot about the Doctor that way. There are days of reading here. There is a place for musi…[Read more]

  • @blenkinsopthebrave and @whisht     I agree that those episodes tell you so much about Picard. My OH and I are rewatching New Generation because Picard reminded us how much we liked it.

    @thane16  Pink Floyd was part of the soundtrack of my youth and I feel like I have heard this song a thousand times when I was younger. I have not listened to it for a long time and I find it so sad and heartbreaking now that I can barely listen(but I did). I am always surprised at how music affects me differently at different times of my life.…[Read more]

    @lrf868      River was fully human but because she was conceived on the Tardis she could regenerate so maybe the meta crisis  Doctor ,who was “born” on the Tardis also has that ability. It was the 11th Doctor who realized that so the 10th Doctor would have no idea it could happen to a human when he left him with Rose. Maybe Rose grew old and died…[Read more]

    @arbutus   Thank you for the SNL  clip. I giggled out loud until my OH came in to see what I was laughing at. I remember watching that years ago and it is still as funny.

  • winston replied to the topic Fugitive of the Judoon

    I thoroughly enjoyed that from start to finish, with massive surprises in between. First there was the Judoon searching for a fugitive, but a much more realistic Judoon capable of showing far more emotion. Then there was Captain Jack and I clapped my hands in surprise! But then there was another Doctor? What? A doctor we don’t know and who don’t…[Read more]

  • @blenkinsopthebrave   We watched it here and we both liked it. Patrick Stewart is so good and it was good to see Brent Spiner as Data. Its 20 or so years later and Picard has retired to the family vineyard in France with his dog who is called Number One. ( My daughter has a dog called Riker )It was a great start and I look forward to the rest of t…[Read more]

    I just saw the sad news that Terry Jones , comedian, author, historian and director to name just a few of his talents has passed away today. He was 77 and had a long battle with dementia.

    Terry of course was a member of Monty Python and quite a few of my best memories as a teen involve a dark, smoke filled  basement and a collection of their…[Read more]

    BBC APPROVED SPOILERS...

  • Well, I liked this episode but then I like them all especially the historical ones. I am always curious to see how these real people will be presented to us and I think they did a good job of job of pointing out the differences and the similarities between the two inventors. The sets were great as were the costumes the Fam wore. I loved Grahams…[Read more]

    @galaxymage  Sorry about that, I added a letter.See above.

  • winston replied to the topic Orphan 55

    @thane16 and @galaxyimage  As I said after watching this episode, I liked it! I watch Doctor Who as an escape and escape I do, for 45 glorious minutes. I sink into the show like a soft mattress with a warm and fuzzy blanket refusing to move until it is over. How I feel about the show when I am watching is all that matters to me at the time and…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Orphan 55

    Hi all!  Just watched and I liked it.I thought it was scary, funny and a little gory and I like corridors and running, “promise me you will run” “when I say so RUN” so much running I am tired. The Dregs were very bitey and very hungry and people getting dragged away by their feet always scares the heck out of me. The Doctor was busy saving…[Read more]

    @thane16  I also feel protective of this new Doctor precisely because she is a women and so am I and my granddaughters and my mother and daughter.They are all strong feisty females ,ready and able to rule the world with strength and with kindness.So is the Doctor! Is she different? Yes and weren’t they all? Does being female change the way this…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Spyfall part 2

    I liked it on first watch but it needs a re-watch so I can figure stuff out. I have been wracking my brain searching for a reason ,a reason so bad that the Master would or could destroy Gallifrey and I am drawing a blank. So I think maybe the Master is lying but I don’t know why except that he always lies. I hope to watch them back to back in the…[Read more]

    @vervain   Hello to you too!  Welcome to the site and to the sofa, it has a comfy new couch. I live in Ontario, Canada and I am fairly new to Who. I started watching in 2005 with the 9th Doctor but I had seen a few BG episodes growing up and I have tried to watch as many as I can. It is nice here with a lot of nice folks so I hope you like it.

  • winston replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Nice new sofa!

  • winston replied to the topic Spyfall

    @ollie14   I think the Master did redeem himself in The End of Time by working with the Doctor to send the Timelords back where they belong. In fact he sacrificed himself to save the Doctor and  saved earth at the same time. I suppose he is angry at the Doctor for whatever happened to him back on Gallifrey.Well I guess we have to wait for part 2.

  • winston replied to the topic Spyfall

    @pedant The flashes of lights did look like a show I saw on the brain. When different parts of the brain were used electric flashes showed the researchers what part of the brain was being accessed. So I agree with you there, I think she is in a brain like place.
