    @janetteb and @blenkinsopthebrave      It is absolutely beautiful right now , a marshmallow world,winter wonderland. Especially today when it was bright and sunny it was a treat for the eyes,,,,,from the window in your warm house with the fireplace crackling. My poor snowman is up to his snowy waist although he doesn’t mind the cold but I do. Mr. Winston ice fishes but I do not because brrrrrr.

    Stay warm or cool but stay safe.

    @dentarthurdent  Your daily trips to the beach sound like heaven to me right now. I am up to my waist in snow and my best friend is a Snowman. I have been assured that it is OK to talk to my snowman but not OK if he talks back. We are in lock down but since we are snowbound it makes little difference, there is no where to go.

    Mr. Winston and I have been watching a series called “Wild New Zealand” and your country is so beautiful and the wild life is  wonderful , weird and fascinating. I will admit that the magnificence of your islands captured so beautifully in this series sometimes brings me to tears.  Don’t even get me started on kiwis and penguins with angry eyebrows, I think I am in love. Lucky, lucky you!

    @janetteb  I really hope you get your break, we can all use one! I am missing my daughter but it will still be months before we can travel. Thank goodness for phones.

    Our politicians in Ontario are like willow trees and they bend in the wind of public opinion instead of listening to doctors and so our numbers are still bad. I wish they were tougher right from the start and we might be doing better.

    Oh well, they don’t know that the Doctor always knows best.

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave    Thank you for a good laugh! Very silly but funny commercials.

    When I was a child and that was a “bad” word I called my brother a bugger. I then tried to explain to my bemused parents that I was only using the word bug in the past tense. He had been bugging me so he was a bugger. They didn’t buy it and my punishment was to be held down while a litter of 8 dachshund puppies licked my face. I remember it as divine torture and I giggled till my sides hurt and I was released from my punishment. Good times and your ads brought back the memory.

    @janetteb  and @dentarthurdent    I very much hope that it was a wake up call except only those who want to hear the message will. What Trump and his minions did was allow and embolden the people with those views to crawl out from under their rocks and shout out the hate that lives inside them. They were always there and here and every where, feeling the way they do and the last 4 years seemed to let them loose almost like they now had permission to spout off their craziness. I have personally had to inform people who I had thought to be nice people that I would not allow their nasty words and theories in my heart or head. I suppose it is good to know how people really think but I am disappointed with myself for not knowing before.

    I just hope enough people get the shot to help the seniors and that they get the shots soon. there is a senior home near here that has 94% of it seniors down with covid and most of the staff.Already 19 of these poor souls have died without the comfort of their families and those families are left devastated and shocked.  I just hide away and hope for the vaccine so my life can continue without this crushing anxiety. Sorry if this sounds gloomy but it is almost a year that we have been hiding from this virus and it does get to me. I will be fine tomorrow.

    Stay safe.

    To the American Whovians, Congratulations on a new President! I don’t know about you but boy am I relieved. As a Canadian most of my life I have been aware of our neighbours to the south and the friendly relationship we have with them and so I am rooting for them. In fact like many Canadians I have family in the States and it has been hard to see them upset over what happened at the Capital last week.Hell, it was hard for everyone to watch.

    Today made me feel hopeful for Americans, Canadians and the rest of the world. Joe Biden is just so calm, decent and reassuring and that is what people need , like a Grandpa who’s always got your back. Kamala Harris is the 1st women V.P. and that is a wonderful thing to see! Tomorrow I will get back to stressing out about covid and all the other “bad things” but for today I have a little hope and a happy heart.

    Stay safe.

    @nerys  Your Father sounds like he lived quite a life and danced to his own drummer. To honour him in the way he wanted is a blessing.I hope you and your family are doing OK.

    Take care.

    @janetteb  I really like the books and can’t wait for the third in this new bunch. Exploring this world with an adult Lyra and Pan is quite different and even darker. I watched the 1st series from the library and it will be awhile before they get the 2nd but I will be keeping an eye out for it.Luckily for me the library is still open, in a way, you order online and they call when it comes in and you pick it up after it sits for 5 days. When you return it they don’t touch it for 5 days then they wipe them down. I love my hard working and friendly Librarians!

    Stay safe.

    @nerys  I am so sorry for your families loss. Your father must have been a very strong man to suffer through all his health problems and still beat covid but as you say it must have taken all he had left. It is good that you had time with your Dad to talk and that you can at least attend the service in a way.That he went so gently is something to be thankful for.

    Take care.

    @janetteb  I agree that there are so many other things to protest about but the crazies here think that their right to go mask-less “trumps” others right to live.  Your Premier would be happy to know that Australia was held up as an example of a country getting Covid under control by our politicians and health officials today so keep up the good work. Canadian anti maskers/covid are always angry dickheads that dare you to ask them to wear their masks.If they are so right then why are they  so angry?

    Anyway the sun will shine again and the vaccine will eventually make us safer and Doctor Who will come back someday so until then………..

    @blenkinsopthebrave This is one of my feel better episodes that I play because it always cheers me up. The Doctor playing soccer and working at the call center are fun to watch as is the cute relationship between Craig and Sophie. Being a massive animal lover and Doctor Dolittle fan I love when the Doctor talks to the animals, the cat in this case.

    I think that the entity luring unfortunate people to their deaths is one of the most menacing of the Who baddies wrapped up inside a comedy\romance.

    I often watch this one and then Closing Time right after like a 2 parter. I love little Stormy.

    @janetteb   Hi!  We sure are on lock down. No going out except for essentials and nothing open except essential shops. It really is a comedy of errors. A provincial government under pressure to open up too early to help the economy, dedicated no-maskers and covid deniers, silly young people who think they are immortal and regular people who thought it was safe to have ” their” family and friends over for the holidays. Add to that the early lock downs in the cities that drove people to the smaller towns in the north to shop and the week long warning before Xmas about a lock down on the 26th and kerblam!!

    We have been very careful for so long now but what can we do but stay home to stay safe for as long as it takes.

    Thanks for the message, I have been painting a bit more and the Mr. has been ice fishing more often as it is easy to social distance in the middle of a frozen lake.

    I heard about a curse that was “may you live in interesting times” and now I get it.

    I watched it and I liked it but I definitely need to watch again so I can catch more of the quick dialogue between Jack and The Doctor during the escape. The prison scenes were great for a geek like me with some of the old baddies locked up with the Doctor . When Jack says how much he missed the sound of the Tardis I totally agreed ….with only a little wind in my eyes.

    Sorry to see Ryan and Graham leaving but happy to see they will use the Doctors gift to have their own adventures saving the earth.

    I am really grossed out by the backpack Dalek and a whole factory full of them was disgusting. I was happy when they got their new suits. Put your clothes on Dalek!

    Any way I will watch it again trying to pay more attention to what is happening and less on “oh look , a weeping angel, an angry Ood, the spider guy, hey, its Captain Jack!”

    It was a great way to start a new year and it made me happy for a little while.

    Stay safe everyone.

    To all my friends and fellow Whovians,  Happy Who Year!!!  This past year has been challenging, to say the least, for everyone around the world. It is almost impossible to put any kind of happy spin on such a crappy year but we have to try and find something.We need to put in more months of fighting this virus and the many tragedies it brings and we need the strength that comes from hope.

    So, I remember in 2020 ……..drive by birthday parades, rainbow pictures in windows, clapping for healthcare workers, kindness from strangers,helping neighbors, charity challenges, Captain Tom, binge watching Taskmaster ,pajama bottoms or track pants everyday and having this site to visit and chat with all of you.

    Also a young women I know who is just 17 came home today after open heart surgery to replace and repair valves and she is doing great and her family is very relieved.

    Doctor Who is going to be on new years day  and I have missed the Doctor and her blue box so much. What a fantastic way to start a new year!

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave  The holiday season will be different at our place ,very quiet and maybe a little boring but I refuse to have a sad Christmas. I won’t see my kids but I can talk to them all day on the phone and send pics to them and they are SAFE. That is what matters most and that is what makes me happy. Besides , I am a gardener and my mantra is “There’s always next year”.

    I also send out my hopes to all of you to stay safe.

    @dentarthurdent  We just got some masks from my daughters mother-in-law and they are very nice and lined and fit well. she is a quilter and the masks are well made but….the pattern is of pot leaves.I don’t know if she knows that or not or if she just liked the vibrant green colours but they are definitely pot leaves. Too funny. They should get some mentions and a few grins and winks.

    I have been knitting a 4th Doctor scarf for a year now,picking it up now and then when I find wool in the right colour range and I have 9 or 10 feet now. Far too hard to wear for a clumsy person like me. I will wear it for the New Years episode along with my fez and Tardis slippers and shirt.

    Congrats on your anniversary! Hope your fancy dinner was great.

    @janetteb    Hi there, good to hear that your area has little covid and I hope it stays that way. We have some provinces that held out against mandating mask wearing and other restrictions and their  numbers are pretty high so most have now put those restrictions in place. Surprise, surprise some people won’t listen to advice or recommendations no matter how sensible and life saving.

    Masks have become quite artistic and colourful although I still use the surgical mask. I am hoping for a Doctor Who mask for Christmas from one of my boys but will wear it over my other mask just to be safe. What impresses me is seeing little kids with their cute little masks on and how well they have accepted them and keep them on. Amazing.

    We will follow the advice of our Doctors here and spend Christmas by ourselves this year. One day we will go to our sons home and leave their gifts on the porch and have a visit outside but no inside parties or dinners. We are so close to coming out of this and I can wait until next year. Then we will have one hell of a party!

    My husband just turned 65 and instead of the big party we had planned it was him and I and phone calls so that was sad for him. I asked him if he wanted a drive by birthday parade but he said he would throw tomatoes at them.lol His party will have to wait also.

    Stay safe.

    Hello  @arbutus  it is good to hear from you and I am glad that you and yours are doing good. I have been baking my way through all my cookbooks and my waist line shows it.  I was keeping busy in my garden but it is under snow now so I made a snowvid man who wears a mask and holds a bottle of sanitizer in one stick arm and a measuring tape for social distancing in the other.

    @nerys  Good to see your Dad is slowly getting better. It must be so hard to lose your health and strength like that but hopefully it will return to him. I am glad that your area still has no cases of Covid and I am sure that comes from the fast response to all cases and as you say a crackdown on any outbreaks. Ontario has many remote areas that are ” safe” so far but it is out of control in some cities and slowly moving out from there. So scary sometimes. We do what we gotta do to stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Every day either on TV or when brave enough to go to town I have a sigh moment. I mean come on, it is just a mask. After the sigh moment I often have an angry moment and a sad moment. The other day a young women in a store in front of me asked a repair man to wear his mask properly and cover his nose. She apologized but said he wasn’t wearing it right. His answer …”Don’t worry about it!”  I almost screamed at him or just screamed in frustration but he put on his mask and the moment was over. Sigh….

    @heyoli  Hello and welcome to the site. I hope you like it here, there is so much to read and discuss. I love this story too and I feel so bad for him because he wants to be John Smith but he is the Doctor. I don’t remember the back story except that the Family are after him and he must hide. I will have to watch it again.

    The real hero of this story is Martha Jones who not only has to protect the Doctor and keep his secret but also has to put up with the racism, sexism  and class prejudice directed towards her. The fact that she didn’t smack someone is amazing.

    Toronto is going into a lock down on Monday and the people were lining up to shop for food and Christmas presents and haircuts. Watching on the news the one thing they all had bought in large quantities was toilet paper. We make TP in Canada and are always assured that we will get enough but that doesn’t stop the panic buying. It is a self fulfilling prophesy , people worry that we will run out so they buy up huge amounts and then we do run out which causes more panic and even gouging.

    My worry is that people will drive the few hours to our town ,which is not in lock down, to shop bringing with them the virus and emptying our stores like during the first wave. I watch the news and listen to the Doctors so I knew there would be a second wave and spent the summer slowly getting ready so I can hide at home for the winter. many can’t do that and I hope they all stay safe.

    Ricky Gervais said he stocked up on wine and beer instead of T.P. and although I don’t drink I am seriously considering taking it up if this f#*king virus goes on much longer. so buy your favourite beverage and remember that in the old days they used newspaper and catalogues in the outhouse.

    stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I also just watched that on Friday cause I love it so. The whole Captain Run Away scene with an angry Doctor is delicious to watch. When 11 says “Good men don’t need rules,now is not the time to ask why I have so many!” I get chills. It is an absolutely perfect episode of Doctor Who, fun, scary, nostalgic with a few feels and headless monks.

    @nerys  That is sad news and you must be very worried. We will all hope that his case stays mild and that he makes a good recovery. Still, you must be so worried about him even though we all know that worrying helps nothing. I know because I am a world class worrier that could “worry” for Canada if it was an Olympic event.

    Stay strong, get enough sleep, eat something and drink a hot cuppa  was always my Mom’s advice in bad times and I pass them along to you in the hope that they help.

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I was doing dishes with the TV on in the next room when they finally called the election in Biden’s favour.  Joe Biden is President and Kamala Harris is the first women in the White House! I feel like I let out a breath that I have been holding for 4 years. Yay for Americans and for Canadians and for the rest of the world, sanity may be restored.

    @mudlark Hello!  All those people in the streets protesting and shouting and even voting without masks will surely add thousands of new cases of Covid in the States.   Many Canadian provinces are seeing record outbreaks in this second wave but people keep partying and no- maskers ( give me a break) keep spreading misinformation and Covid across the country. I am both frustrated and sad.

    @thane16   It is so nice to see you here. I am so sorry about your Mom, it is terrible and sad to lose a parent no matter how old we are. I cannot imagine how much harder to lose someone during this pandemic must be. It seems you are healing a little and that is good. It all takes time. I hope your family is good and stays that way.

    @blenkinsopthebrave       I am not stranded on a desert island but in the middle of Ontario surrounded by covidiots so thank goodness for DVD collections. If I had to take only 3 episodes they would be from AG Who because I haven’t watched enough BG to have faves. So……

    1 and 2 The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances – A good 2 part story that has some chills and thrills and also introduces Captain Jack. Plus a happy ending which I might need to keep my spirit up.

    3. The Husbands of River Song. – A funny episode from start to finish and the pairing up of River and the 12th Doctor is a match made in Who heaven. Plus we meet Nardole and the snowy scenes might cool me off if the island is hot

    4.  Since the first is a 2 parter maybe I can take another? Any episode with the 10th Doctor cause I love David Tenant.

    It is a either an extremely hard or very easy year to find things to be grateful for.  I am thankful for Doctor Who and the entertainment and distraction it gives me and because it gave me a chance to “meet” and talk to nice people from all around the world. How cool is that?

    @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 countries could learn by example but don’t. Canada has areas almost covid free yet others like mine that are having a bad 2nd wave so we are back on lock down. Oh well , what else can you do during a long cold winter but stay home and isolate anyway.( we just call that a normal winter).

    @janetteb  I am happy to hear that your area is relatively safe now and I hope it stays that way. People here got careless during the summer and seemed to think that the virus was gone but it has come back with a fury and now we all pay. My granddaughters school has 4 cases and I think it will close if there are any more and the other granddaughter is doing online classes but both are safe and that is what counts. I can’t see the one who goes to school but the older one may visit soon so that will be so nice.Thank goodness for phone calls and Whovians or my life would be pretty lonely.

    @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 read what others thought and revive old forums with your thoughts.

    @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” for their more traditional monsters and the 11th Doctors “God Complex”  which haunts the people with their own biggest fears. The 12th Doctors episode “Knock, Knock” because the walls are alive…terrifying. Also “Death in Heaven” and that episode is just plain scary. Those are a few of my scariest episodes and I think I will start tomorrow.

    @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 much and that’s OK too. I just revisit my old faves now and then.

    I am a Pratchett and Gaiman fan and loved both Good Omens and Stardust, books and movie\series. I thought the casting for Good Omens was perfect and it was pretty true to the book.

    @janetteb  I have a “to read pile” also that seems to grow at an alarming rate. So many good books, so little time.  There are a few long months of winter ahead so I will hopefully sit by the fireplace with a good book now and then. Winter and a bad second wave of covid in my province means we will be spending a lot of time at home in the house, together……….yikes!

    I am a bad Canadian , I don’t like most snowy ,cold winter activities so I kinda hibernate.  Husband is a far better Canadian who enjoys skiing and ice fishing and other cold stuff so he gets out now and then. I am sure we will get through winter without wanting to injure one another. Just kidding, I will just binge on Doctor Who and jammy dodgers.

    @oochillyo Happy October to you too!  I will have to think about which episodes scared me the most and watch them again. Thanks for the Halloween task. What episodes scared you?

    @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 Doctors life very interesting in the Tardis. These are just 2 of my perfect crews and I could come up with so many more but “that way lies madness” so I will stop there but I will muse over it for many happy hours.

    @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 the States and things are indeed bad there now in so many ways. As a Canadian I was always been influenced by our neighbours because of their TV , movies and music not to mention hippies and the peace movement and I once knew more of their history than our own. ( I learned my own now ) To see them try to go backwards in some doomed attempt to capture a past way of life is sad. The past was misogyny ,racial , gender and social intolerance, all the things that Trump seems to encourage now. I don’t get it, which is probably a good thing.

    @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 time. Such a simple yet elegant line that says so much.

    Clara and Me flying through the universe in a diner shaped Tardis with a broken chameleon circuit is a great send off for both those characters.

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.

    I forgot to mention that with the baking comes the eating and with the eating comes the gaining. I have put on a few pounds  myself! I have started to feed the painted turtles that live in our creek so they may be gaining weight too. I call it the Turtle Club and I am the only human and since I bring the snacks I am also the President. I might be suffering cabin fever.

    @blenkinsopthebrave  We also make an occasional raid on town for supplies and today we were giggling through the store cause it felt like we were in a video game what with following arrows down the aisles and avoiding people going the wrong way and turning around and running away from the unmasked baddie . Every trip to town for milk is an adventure.

    Stay Safe everyone.

    @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.

    @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 already fairly isolated already but I miss my friends and family. We can only stay safe for them and cope . I am gardening and pickling and painting and all the “ings” you can think of including bingeing on movies and series.I also haunt my online library for ebooks.

    Maybe try to learn a totally new skill like baking or painting or woodworking or just something you always wanted to learn like another language.Maybe something that takes you out of your comfort zone like writing a song or juggling?

     

    I know the Covid-19  is very bad in the States and I hope that it starts to get better soon for all of you.

    Stay Safe

    @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, Who has scared me a few times but Midnight is an episode I rarely re-watch because it makes me feel first scared than slightly sick at the behaviour of “scared” people. There is nothing more frightening  than a crowd of scared people with a scapegoat readily available. Well that got me thinking, thanks for that.

    Stay safe.

    @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 this episode is Colony Sarff  with shriveled up old Davros coming in third.

    I have not watched this 2 parter in a while and now I think I will just to remind me how much I liked it.

    Stay safe.
