    @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]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Thanks and congrats to you both. Masking and distancing are both as important now as at the start. We both decided right from the beginning that we would listen to the science and the worlds top doctors and be good examples for our kids and grandkids.  We have been very fortunate to all be healthy ,if not so happy, so far a…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  I agree that even the relatively “small” black bears (compared to grizzlies and polar bears) is still a animal to avoid and a few people have been attacked and killed over the years. We do not see them often but are always aware that they are out there. They are usually aware of us long before and they run away, most attacks…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  and @janetteb   We had a very hot day with temps. of 28C  but with a humidex of 40C today but it is predicted to return to “normal” temps tomorrow. The problem here has been loud and flashy thunder and lighting storms with huge amounts of garden crashing rain and even some hail. I usually sit on our dock on the creek and feed the…[Read more]

    @janetteb  I am fine and have managed the heat wave fairly well so far. We have air conditioners but our power is pretty expensive so we try to use them wisely and keep the house cool in other ways that I am sure you know all about.Things like blinds and curtains to keep the sun out and windows closed in the day and opened at night. I used to…[Read more]

    @missy and @dentarthurdent  I am with you on whether I analyze an episode or not. If I like what I am watching then I am usually drawn in until it is over, but if I don’t then I tend to be over critical and analytical. I can over look so much if I am entertained or I don’t notice things until later on when I read them here. With Doctor Who…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave    We are pretty used to the heat where I am and we have ways to cope with it ,if it doesn’t last too long. The poor people who are losing their homes to fires caused by the hot , dry conditions are in my thoughts.

    My daughter did have a few hard days what with the heat and she got sick from her 2nd vaccine. She is a kind wo…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent Yes Rivers “timeline” used to drive me to distraction. I have watched her episodes front to back and vice versa trying to make sense of her backwards story until I had the same epiphany , both their lives are linear but they meet in a timey- wimey , wibbly-wobbly way. Still if I try to make too much sense of it my head will…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  I hope you and the Mrs. are managing the heat wave that the west is having. My daughter was having a hard time keeping her furry kids cool which really upset her but it cooled a bit today where she is. We have extreme heat here but a lot of us have air conditioners to keep us cool. Anyway , take care and keep as cool as a…[Read more]

    @thane16  I get busy with the veggie garden for a few days and I miss seeing you on the site. As I used to say a long time ago,”bummer”. Anyway , hello and its good to see you. Thane is 19 now, they grow up so fast. My oldest granddaughter is 17 and driving now! I hope everything is good for you and only getting better.

    @blenkinsopthebrave  That is a great photo! The Abraham Lincoln Brigade with Oliver Law have the look of heroes everywhere, just everyday people doing what they think is right and good.

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

    @dentarthurdent  Yes, BG is before gap and AG is after gap.  Doctor Who on a steam train would be cool.

    @ameliag  Hello right back!

    Stay safe.

  • winston replied to the topic Rose

    @ameliag  I totally agree with you, Rose always makes me happy and I have watched it a lot. The opening montage that introduces us to Rose, Mickey and Jackie is a great scene that lets us know so much about Roses life. I was hooked when I first watched it in 2005 and I still am.

    @dentarthurdent  Congrats on getting your shots!  It will be so good when everyone everywhere can get a vaccine and we can get rid of covid all over the world. My 12 year old granddaughter called today to tell me that she gets hers this month and we are both so excited for her to come stay with us again. Hopefully before summer is over.

    @janetteb   That is the great thing about Doctor Who- something for everyone. We can’t all love every episode and there are some that others love but I don’t, that’s the way it goes.

    I hope your area stays safe as it is a pain in the ass being in endless lock down. My province is finally getting vaccines out in a pretty regular manner and most p…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  I also loved The Doctors Wife !  That episode has everything from a to b. Great witty banter, strange alien people (made from lots of people) and an evil baddie named House who likes to play with his food before he eats it.  Amy and Rory are tortured while the Doctor and “Sexy” make a Tardis out of spare parts.So much in one ep…[Read more]

    @janetteb  I have books from my childhood and my Dads and his mothers all the way back to my great,great ,great grandmas schoolbooks from 1840 so not only me but nobody in my family can throw out a book. Every now and then I attempt to down-size the bookshelves but very few are chosen. Now I stick to library books and e-books so I can read all I…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  I was raised by a brilliant father who believed in facts and science and taught me to be the same. He also taught a young bookworm not to believe everything you read and only half of what you see without checking facts and verifying sources, in other words a healthy skepticism. A good education in the sciences helps also.

    Hello @macca and @docnerd223    Welcome to the site. It is great to talk about Doctor Who with new people all around the world and all ages. I live in Canada and have been a Whovian for many years. I like all the Doctors and companions and I have a hard time picking a favourite.
