    @oochillyo   I also like Gridlock for its humour and montage and for the ending where the Doctor finally tells Martha about his home. A rewatch makes me happy-happy too!

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Those are 2 very good episodes and also some of my favourites for different reasons. Blink out and out scares me! The characters are great but the Angels ar…[Read more]

    Hello @oochillyo  and welcome to the site. I love Doctor Who and when people ask which episode is my favourite my head starts to swell as I try to narrow it down to one episode. I think it always changes for me depending on which Doctor I am watching at the time and so many other things. If I was forced to pick one (maybe by tickling or…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   We have spent a lot of time on the west coast of Vancouver Island as my daughter lives there. It is a nature lovers paradise and when I am not there I always wish I were.It is so beautiful that at first it is almost a sensory blow out. My neck was sore from looking up at the mountains and the eagles and my shoes fell apart f…[Read more]

    @nerys  You do live in a beautiful part of the country! We love to walk the shore and to sit and watch the shore birds. I once had a tern drop a little fish right in my lap. It was a small mackerel, pretty funny. I love the gannets too and I can watch them dive for hours.

    We have a mom and baby river otter who swim around our creek eating fish…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   @nerys  and @arbutus   To my fellow Canucks… Happy Canada Day.  We live in a beautiful and country , I have driven it from coast to coast and no matter how long you have you can never see it all. It is vast, and yet the people make it cozy. We have oceans and lakes and mountains and prairies and frozen tundra, heck we have…[Read more]

    @draigh    Welcome!  One thing I have learned about Doctor Who is that there are always more Daleks, always. I don’t know how but they always come back. That is a good thing though , Daleks are cool bad guys.

    @missy  I am so sorry to hear about your loss.  You must be devastated and I will be thinking of you. I agree that line is so true and so sad and I hope you get through this with the love and help of friends and family. Stay safe.

  • @shepherd    There are many great shows featuring transgender characters and many wonderful transgender actors including Bethany Black who appeared in the Doctor Who episode “Sleep no More” but the Doctor is not one of them. The Doctor is an alien from Gallifrey, a Time Lord who can “cheat death” by regenerating. Every cell in her body dies and is…[Read more]

  • @bluesqueakpip   I really enjoyed Picard and I really like Discovery also. I do like the episodic style of Discovery especially for rewatching later when I can watch favourite stand alone episodes. The new style of Picard on the other hand makes me want to watch it all to solve the mysteries and finish the arc but I am not going to watch any e…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   We were surrounded by those cottagers , filling up the town and lining up in front of the stores they promised not to shop in. Apparently they feel that their taxes allow them to infect us. Ahhh covidiots. Thanks for the link.

    @janetteb When I get to hug them I may never let go. Good to see that things are getting better i…[Read more]

    @nerys  Good to hear you are doing OK. I love your beaches because you can walk forever and hardly see a soul just beautiful shore birds. It is great that you have no Covid where you are, we don’t have as much as Toronto but our seniors have been hit hard and one home lost half of its people to this horrible virus. Maybe some of these covidiots…[Read more]

    @miapatrick   I have a very talkative brain myself so I sympathize and I share your insomnia.   @dalekbuster523  We tend to go for pizza or Chinese food , maybe because they are both good for breakfast.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @mudlark  That was a privilege to watch and I am in awe of Stevie and the rest of his comrades in the Bomber Command. His memories were priceless and his loss is a loss for us all.I really liked the bio at the end and the long happy life he had with his wife was a reward he earned again and again. How brave and selfless were those young men who…[Read more]

    @craig  That was haunting.

  • winston replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @craig  My husband told me today that it was covid. He has been talking about the band and singing songs all day. It is so sad  about the people being alone at the end. Just too sad.

  • winston replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @craig  That is sad. My husband is singing along to the song as I type. He was (he would say still is) a punk and loved the Stranglers.We have a couple of albums here. I will have to dig them out and have a listen.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   and  @cathannabel    There are messages above this but I fudged it up somehow.

    @thane16  It is so good to hear from you and to know the family is doing OK. I think a yellow door would be perfect against the blue and white so I say “go for it”. It s too bad that thane junior cannot find work and I have my fingers crossed that he finds a job soon. Like you we usually hang around the house anyway so this is not a stretch for…[Read more]

    @missrori  You sound like you are having a rough go of it and I am sorry.First of all thank you for working through this virus,you are very brave. I know that the future looks very uncertain right now and it is good to have something to look forward to. For me that is gardening and I am lucky enough to have the space to grow veggies and flowers.…[Read more]
