    @janetteb   Congrats on your election. I hope good changes are coming for Australia. We vote tomorrow for our Provincial government and Premier. It looks like the Conservative Party will win a majority again according to the polls and we will have to put up with our “Pave paradise and Put up a parking lot” ,anything for a buck, corporation l…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I have never watched those episodes but your description makes me want to. I have a few DVDs of the first Doctor but that one is not on it. It is easier to find the old Who and watch on the internet so I will look for it. My library may have it.

    Years back we found a few old episodes of “Lost in Space” and had good giggles r…[Read more]

    @jimbeauxslice   Hello!  Welcome to the site, I hope you like it here. I am excited about the next series but have no specific theories yet.  I only know that it is so far away and I hate waiting.

    It will be interesting to see what direction RTD takes the show in and a new Doctor is always exciting. The 60th anniversary show seems to have eve…[Read more]

    @janetteb @blenkinsopthebrave  and @dentarthurdent     Thank you all for the good wishes. Our area has declared a state of emergency now due to all the damage and that should bring in some more help. It is really a big clean up job. Our neighbours  have another neighbours 50ft spruce tree resting on their roof waiting for removal. It was pushe…[Read more]

    We had an extremely bad storm here on Saturday with high winds, rain and hail. In one city they think it was a tornado that ripped off roofs and flipped cars.We were caught on the road to town when it got so dark then a bit of rain and suddenly a gust of wind that almost pushed our van over. We pulled off the road and sat silently and tensely for…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave  I agree about season 10, it had some excellent episodes. The Doctor Falls is full of the feels and I think I get some dust in my eyes every time I watch it. Twice upon a Time was a satisfying send off for the 12th Doctor and I was happy he saw and remembered Clara at the end.

    I have to admit that although I watched all the…[Read more]

    So much cool news, but so long to wait.

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

    @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]

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

    @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]

  • winston replied to the topic The Doctor Falls

    @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]

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

    @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.

    stay safe

    @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]
