    So much cool news, but so long to wait.

    @janetteb  I really hope you get some rain and not stupid rain but just gentle drops to feed the land. There are so many places suffering from drought and the consequences are terrible for humans and animals alike. We need rain here already even after the snow melt because the ground was so dry going into winter and the spring rains have missed…[Read more]

    @janetteb  Very punny!

  • winston replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    Wow! I look the other way for a minute and what happens? A new Doctor. I have no idea who the actor is but that’s OK I look forward to meeting him. I am one of the few I guess who likes J.W. in the role, but I do. I feel she was let down by the writing and directing sometimes but she was the Doctor and for many she will be their Doctor. My hope is…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   and @janetteb    Hello to you both! We are all doing different rewatches, I am on series 2 of new Who and just finished School Reunion with Sarah Jane. Still love K9 .

    I just watched Around the World in 80 Days and found it good if not very exciting. It was a pretty good adaptation of the book with some added romance and a few…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave     That is such a long time to wait!  I almost feel a sense of panic when I think of it. I wish they could speed it up, I am not getting any younger. Why does it take soooooo long?

    Oops, even I hear the whine.

    I can seriously say, thank the Tardis for all the episodes of old and new Who that are neatly stored on DVDs and…[Read more]

    @janetteb  Thanks, I read the article and thought some of the ideas interesting but I find that the older I get the less I like change. I don’t know why, it just happened! Even though I know it is strange to be that way, yet love a show that is all about change.   I want the Tardis in every episode because it is the Doctors home (the newest m…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  This episode actually had me in tears more than once. Poor Bill, brave and reliable Nardole, who is on of my favourite companions, even Missy made me tear up.  So much loss in this episode, it is not one I watch a lot, it needs a certain mood.

    I can’t say much more til I watch it again.

    Stay safe.

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

    @dentarthurdent  It snowed here yesterday and today so it does not look much like spring yet, but it will come, it always does. Sorry about the swimming, but I guess you had a good long season and you will be able to walk on the beach now. There is always next summer (the gardeners mantra) to dream about.

    Stay safe

  • @blenkinsopthebrave   @nerys   and @janetteb     Lots of new ideas for future viewing!  We really liked Picard series 1 but have not watched 2 yet. Here’s hoping we will like it. Mr likes Westworld but I give it a miss because it is just too violent for me. I am looking forward to Obi Wan as an old but sincere Star Wars fan.

    I have been watching…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave    That looks like an exciting episode! I like Dan’s pirate clothes and this will be the first time I will see the Sea Devils. Thanks for the trailer.

  • winston replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    @blenkinsopthebrave        Yay!  Time to dust off the Tardis mug for a giant cuppa. I can’t wait.

    @nerys  I love the smell of laundry that is dried on the line.  I actually put out some blankets today and although a bit cold there was a good breeze and they dried nicely. Getting into bed made with fresh sheets and blankets off the line is one of life’s great comforts.

    We usually make enough syrup to last us a year and to give some to my k…[Read more]

    @nerys  We could watch TV together and never argue over what to watch. I like Time Team , Wild Archaeology  and Digging for Britain. I know Time Team had problems but I can’t help watching all the programs. Digging for Britain does go to well established digs all over Britain. I also wish that Wild had stayed on longer as it was very interesting t…[Read more]

    I am not sure how I feel about Hugh Grant being the Doctor. He definitely has the talent and I liked his past roles including that of the Doctor, so I am not sure why. He would be a charming Doctor I think.

    I guess I will do, like I do ,every time the Doctor regenerates and just except himher as the Doctor. Sort of “oh, that’s what the Doc looks…[Read more]

    @janetteb   We are good in the Winston house although we are both distressed over Ukraine and a smidge of real life. I have tried to distract myself with other things but it is impossible.

    Our government is dropping mask mandates on Monday and frankly I find that worrying. We have decided to continue on the way we have been going, like masks a…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  Sorry to hear that omicron has hit NZ so hard. It is all around us here but so far we have dodged it. I hope you  and the Mrs. are not too ill and get through your quarantine unscathed.

    I have not watched Smile often because frankly those little killer bots scare me. They are very creepy especially to those who show every e…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Thanks for the news. I am watching Flux again and really liking it the 2nd time around so it will be nice to see what the Doctor does next. I share your pessimism and also need the distraction which Doctor Who gives me, usually.

    When reading or watching movies I don’t like true stories, especially sad ones. I always want…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic The Winchester

    @janetteb   I have said that and much worse over the last week. I am so angry and frustrated the bad words just pop out. That anger is rivaled by the deep sadness I feel for the people of Ukraine although my tears help no-one.

    @thane16    I saw the flooding in Brisbane on the news and it is devastating. I hope you and your family are safe and my heart goes out to the families who have lost so much.  Just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts ,crowded as they are.

    @janetteb  Every henchman has his minions.
