    @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.

    We have s…[Read more]

    @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]

  • winston replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator

    @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. I usually say that my favourite doctor is the one I am watching at th…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  @janetteb and @dentarthurdent   Happy Mothers Day to Janette and Mrs Blenkinsop  and Mrs Dentarthurdent and all the other mothers on the site! I wish I could give you all big beautiful bouquets of flowers. I picked a small bunch of violets, primroses and lambia for my table and baked myself a cake (hubby says its good!) sin…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  and @janetteb  I am still here in lock down in Ontario. We have had our first jab but it will be 4 months before the 2nd shot. I keep busy gardening and puttering around the place. Spring also means so many birds are back and there have even been 6 little goslings (of the Canada variety) in the yard so the binoculars, bird g…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic The Faces of the Doctor (2)

    @janetteb and @dentarthurdent   I get how people are protective of their favourite characters, I feel that way about Sherlock Holmes who I think should be a British man as should Watson. James Bond can be a man just let the women in the films be kick ass instead of eye candy. But the Doctor is different, heshe regenerates into totally new p…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent  I googled Piha beach and it is a stunningly beautiful place. I love the black sand and the turquoise water. I feel I could walk it forever. The pics were all perfect weather shots but I would love to see it in stormy weather. An angry sea is an awesome thing to see, from a safe distance.

    We both got our appointments for our…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @janetteb   I forgive Doctor Who almost everything. I don’t care if it is sappy, hokey or silly or has plot holes the size of a crater. I have no explanation or excuse for my uncritical love of the Doctor. My kids also tease me as does hubby but I do not care, I am a Whovian through and through. I am OK with my inner nerd and have let her loose o…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   Spring has sprung here in Canada but some areas are “springier” than others but we will all catch up eventually. I have some beautiful patches of crocus in bloom and the colours are so good after a long white winter. The turtles and frogs are waking up and the birds are making nests, and I am starting seeds in the greenhouse so i…[Read more]

  • winston replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @missy   A very funny scene from a great episode. I like the Doctor making assumptions about Clara’s  boyfriend because he looks a little like his previous self. The Doctor is wonderfully crusty in this episode, just the way I like him

    Stay safe.

    @everyone  Yesterday in Canada we had a some wonderful,marvelous and almost unbelievable good news. A little 3 year old boy wandered away from his Grandpas house and was lost in the forest that surrounded his home. A huge search was carried out by police and volunteers but after 3 nights in the woods they were getting discouraged. It was below 0C…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent   I absolutely agree and for some reason when I saw “Rose” for the first time I was totally “willing”  to suspend disbelief and sink into the stories like a warm bath. Other shows can drive me crazy though because I just don’t believe in them. It’s a good thing there are so many things out there to watch, something for ev…[Read more]

    @janetteb     Great happy list!  Gridlock has cat people and singing and all those wonderfully different people living in their vehicles. The Lodger is a fun fish out of water tale with a great cast. I like all your choices and I am going to watch some of them tomorrow while I paint.  I also save the Xmas episodes to watch leading up to the day.I…[Read more]

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

    @dentarthurdent   That is why Doctor Who is so good, there is something for everyone.

    My family loved Xena when the kids were young. That and Hercules were pretty popular in Canada.

  • winston replied to the topic Doctor Who memories

    @missy I am happy to see you are doing OK. Of course a pulse is important. We are doing fine, keeping to ourselves and staying home most of the time. We just finished doing a batch of maple syrup which keeps us busy and sticky for days. It just tastes so good. We usually get enough for family and friends but the spring weather was too warm so we…[Read more]
