• @blenkinsopthebrave I agree with you so much that I rarely watch it because it is so intense and sad. This episode is so good it is hard to watch.

    Stay safe.

    janetteb   This is one of life’s little coincidences, my husband grew up in the area that your ancestor settled in. It is beautiful country on the banks of Lake Huron which has miles of beaches and sand dunes.  Even now it is  a farming area with a big rural population. I hope he was happy here.

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave    Oh the “Mysterious Case of the Missing Rake” a strange case occurring all over Canada. I found mine hanging in one of our trees, no idea how it got there.

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   Happy Thanksgiving Day! Hope you had a good one. We are shut down in Ontario and asked to stay home with only our household which means Mr. Winston and me. It also means a turkey that only he eats and a giant cheesecake (baked by me,first time!) that only I eat so…..it is track pants today.

    It is a either an extremely h…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  Thanks for the advice. I am a massive Whovian and lucky enough to own all the series except the last one, specials and all , so I can just put on Rose and carry on. My lovely children supply me with all the shows and also copies of the webisodes so I never have to miss anything.

    NZ certainly has kept the covid at bay and many…[Read more]

    @oochillyo   That sounds like so much fun, starting at series 1 and watching them all will be big binge but a great adventure.Depending on how long and how cold winter is I may do that myself. It is a good way to see how each Doctor connects to the ones that came before him her and what shaped each regeneration. Then you can come on here and r…[Read more]

    @oochillyo  I have made my  list of episodes that scared me when I first watched them.  The ones you mentioned were on my list but I also added from the 9th Doctor, “The Empty Child The Doctor Dances” because the little boy repeating “are you my Mummy?” over and over was creepy.The 10th Doctors episodes” The Water of Mars” and “Tooth and Claw” fo…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   I agree that series 11 is hard to get into but I find that happens  for the first series of most Doctors. I call it regeneration shock and it can take awhile to go away. The more I watch the 13th Doctor and her fam the more I like them. I hope that happens for you but we all have our favourite Doctor and some we don’t like as mu…[Read more]

    @oochillyo   Ah, the quest for the perfect companions for a Doctor of your choice. It is so fun and satisfying to pick your favourite Tardis crew and Nardole would be part of mine. I like Nardole, River Song and the 12th Doctor teasing and bickering across the universe.  I also like Donna, Rose, Jackie, Martha  and Sarah Jane  making the 10th Doct…[Read more]

    @cathannabel  I was really saddened by the news of his death, he was a great actor and more importantly a good human being. Black Panther was the black super hero we all needed and Chadwicks portrayal gave the character so much heart and soul and strength. He will be missed by all.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @blenkinsopthebrave    That episode scared me as a kid, it was really strange to see Kirk and the rest being so cruel,but evil Spock scared me the most. At a time when nobody me or my family knew wore a beard, I thought evil people grew beards.

    Trump and his band of evil misfits should all grow evil little beards! I have a sister and nephews in…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Hell Bent

    @dentarthurdent  I so agree with you on this episode. It has all the feels you need. It went from funny to so sad in moments and the conversation between Clara and the Doctor in the crypt is one my favourite scenes in all of Who. When Clara asks the Doctor why he would suffer so much to save her and he says “I had a duty of care” I cry every…[Read more]

    @thane16  It is good to hear from you and to know you are okay. Life here is slowly opening up for those that want to go out (safety measures) but we still have not rid ourselves of Covid so for many like us seniors life is still on hold. There are about 100 new cases every day here in Ontario but it would be nice to lower that number.

    @oochillyo  I like your optimism and I also hope that when this virus goes away we will come out the other side kinder and wiser. Nice people like you will lead the way.

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @missrori   It is good to see you are okay and I feel the same as you about the endless cycle of work and isolation without some of the things that make life livable. It does start to wear on a person after awhile. Everything is cancelled or delayed or just too complicated or unsafe to bother with.Where I live in Canada (Hi! neighbor) I am a…[Read more]

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

    @oochillyo   I agree that what scares somebody is also about who that person is and what they have experienced in their own lives. Some people love to be scared by movies like my 15 yr old granddaughter who tries to get me to watch them with her( I never do) . I am easily scared and I don’t like the feeling so I avoid it when I can. That said, W…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent     The Doctors entrance in this episode is one of my favourites. This Doctor does nothing in a small way. Missy is delightfully deranged as usual and she tortures Clara in so many ways.

    I also found the handmines pretty creepy, looking a lot like bits of bodies stuck in the mud after a big battle. The only thing creepier in thi…[Read more]

    @janetteb   Just a shout out to you and your family! hope you are still all good. Some day we will get a vaccine and this will all be a bad nightmare (I keep telling myself ) and we will get back to whatever normal life is. Until then stay safe.

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

    @dentarthurdent  Hello and welcome to the site. I live in Canada so we are a long ways apart but united in our love of Who. This is a great site that can keep you busy just reading all the posts and the people are all nice and friendly. Go ahead and post on older forums because it will spark conversations as Who fans can and do re-watch episodes…[Read more]

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

    @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]
