    @dentarthurdent   I have not watched that one for ages. I did love the library but Clara hiding behind the shelves ,while the charcoal monster looks for her, is pretty frightening. I need to watch this one again. Oh yeah,  they convince the younger brother that he is an android. Now that is bullying!

    stay safe.

    @janetteb  We have had a break in the heat, thank goodness. As a child my family spent most of the summer at “the camp” doing everything outside, except sleeping. We also had a camp in the woods of a good friend so our kids could experience the same life.  I  have tried cooking or baking everything over a fire including my pickling. Results va…[Read more]

    @missrori  Hello, It is good to know that you and your family have recovered from the virus. I also feel your frustration with people who won’t get the shots that will help us all recover. It seems to have gone on for a long time and like most of us I wish it were over.

    Being positive is hard these days but my Mom used to say “this too will…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent    Happy Birthday!   I love that it was your Dentist who reminded you. My Doctor called me on one of my big birthdays to remind that at my age it was time for a few tests, Thanks Doc!

    I hope your country gets a hold of the covid because you have done so well keeping it away.

    Stay safe.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missy  Glad to see you are good.  Our covid cases were going down so things were opened up a bit and now our numbers are on the rise again. We have a really good vaccine rate so that is good but the Delta variant is still finding those that are not jabbed and some that are. We still have to be very careful and are still behaving like we did at t…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  The country that is Canada is quieter and more reserved than the States but individually we are party animals!

    Stay safe and party on eh!

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missy  That was a great scene, in a great episode. He likes to sleep when other people are talking because it saves time. Such good lines.

    I hope you are keeping well and watching lots of Doctor Who.

    Stay safe.

    @thane16   I totally agree that every AG  Doctor has been great, all in very different ways and all perfect at the time. Everyone here knows that my fave Doctor is always the one I’m watching at the time but ChrisDoc is my Doctor. He was the first one I watched and Eccleston’s acting sucked me into the Whovian universe and I have been there ever since.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @dentarthurdent  Deep Breath is one of my favourite first episodes. One of the scenes I like is when the Doctor shows Clara his new clothes and she sort of peeks around the console to look at him. Most of it said with their expressions and at that moment he was very much the Doctor. He was a crusty Doc with very angry eyebrows and an…[Read more]

    @thane16   Canadians have been watching TV from the States since TV started and their shows are still a big part of Canadian broadcasters programming. Most sitcoms we watch are American made and some are “must watch TV” while many are mediocre. When they are good they are very good, like Soap and Taxi and Seinfeld to name some oldies.

    @thane16   Hello!  I enjoy reading the forums and all the theories including your clock theory for Clara. I never had the imagination to come up with too many of my own but I loved some of the more bonkers theories and waited to see if they were right. Some were but most were not and some ideas here were better than what the writers came up wi…[Read more]

    @nerys and @blenkinsopthebrave   Hello, fellow Canadians!  Unfortunately in Ontario our covid numbers are on the rise again mostly due to the Delta variant and a failure to stay at home and get vaccinated. The future of schools is uncertain and who knows when we will go back into stricter lockdowns. Most of the results of “opening” too early we…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  I love when the Doctor drives his special motorbike straight up the Shard. Very silly just the way I like it.

    The poor women at the end back in her childhood and looking for her Mommy. I hope she gets some help and a ton of counseling.

    Stay safe.

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

    @janetteb  We get quite a few DVDs at charity shops and the library sells them to raise money. I also like owning some series and movies to watch over again. We have not streamed anything yet as our internet is too expensive and between the library, YouTube and the channels our antenna brings in we have way too much to watch. I may have to wait…[Read more]

    I wanted to tell you all a very cute little Doctor Who story involving a fez.

    My granddaughter came to stay for the 1st time in a year or more and we wanted to take her shopping and out for lunch now that things are opening up a bit.She is 12 going on 20 and suffering all the angst that comes with growing up and even more after almost a year out…[Read more]

    @thane16  Hi there!  I spent way too much time trying to figure out the River and Doctor time line and also came to the realization that it did not run back to front but in a wibbly-wobbly , timey-wimey sort of way. I had to let it go before my brain exploded.

    Mr.Winston really likes Firefly and I was lucky that the library had the movie. I t…[Read more]

    @janetteb  Congrats on the 1st jabs! I hope your younger people can get theirs soon, it is a relief to have your your kids and grand-kids protected. Our 12 year old granddaughter has had both and she finally came for a visit. It was sooooo nice!

    Ontario covid numbers are rising again due to the delta variant mostly. I think we will get a 4th…[Read more]

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

    @nerys  There were some very good episodes and some great acting but it was not consistent.  I have been confused about Chibnalls  vision or plans for the Doctor and her future and past. I hope the next series clears some of that confusion up and gives me some 13th Doctor episodes to add to my favourites. So far the only one I rewatch is her re…[Read more]

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

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Thanks for that. I needed some Who news and I guess we got a tiny wee glimpse of what’s to come. Has anyone heard when?  We have to wait for so long and I do wait ,sometimes patiently, sometimes anxiously for each new series. Of course this gap was longer because of Covid so what can ya do.

    I really don’t know what to e…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   This is one of my favourite Dalek episodes, the  Daleks needing the Doctors help with even more dangerous Daleks. Poor Oswin is one of them in the end and although I figured it out early I hoped I was wrong.

    There is a lot of banter, running down dark corridors and a little love story, who needs more? A quest to save the pr…[Read more]
