    @mudlark    Leaping about like a moutain goat,  sounds like fun! Glad you have your date and plenty of time to prepare.

    @ichabod  I agree that the role of the Doctor is one where it is easy to get typecast because of some intense fans, although that doesn’t seem to happen as much anymore. Maybe Smith etc.  left before that could happen and that is a good thing.They have gone on to do wide and varied roles in movies and on TV and we get to meet new Doctors and new actors. It is always best to leave them wanting more so they say  (no, I don’t know who ” they” are).

    @everyone     Hoppy Easter to all of you!  There was no chocolate here this morning but my granddaughter figures  that my dog scared the Easter Bunny away. Newton!!!!!  It was a beautiful sunny day with a high of 14C and I spent most of it out in the garden. Purple crocus are the first flowers open and they were covered in hungry honey bees. The birds were singing a rock opera and the Canadian geese were gliding back and forth on the creek. I wish you all the calm I felt sitting in the sun in my garden.

    I am always surprised to hear people say they don’t like a new Doctor because he is too old , too young ,too flirty or too whatever. After the usual regeneration shock and sadness over losing the current Doc, I sort of think “Oh thats what he’s like now, lets see what this Doctor get up too.” I have favourite episodes from each series and admit to rewatching some series more than others but I would never stop watching because of a particular Doctor. My favourite is usually the one I’m watching at the time. Maybe I am fickle?

    @dentistofdavros    Here in rural Ontario we have mosquitoes and  the dreaded blackfly in the spring followed by the deerfly and horsefly ( they pack a punch) in the summer.But it is not all bitey insects all the time here, in the winter there are no bugs at all……….only snow.

    @kbranagh     @missy and @thedentistofdavros   Mark Gatiss is a great writer and not a bad actor either. He has written some really good episodes of Who and I am a big fan of Sherlock. I think he would make a great show runner but is probably just to busy. I have high hopes for Chibnall.

    @torchwood03    Howdy from Ontario Canada!   I take you mean the state and not D.C. although both are lovely this time of year. I think my daughter is right above you on Vancouver Island , also a great place. I really liked Fathers Day a lot as it gives us Roses family history and also the bad things that can happen if you mess with time. ChrisDoc was sooo angry and I liked him when he was angry.

    @thedentistofdavros  Howdy to you in Scotland, I would love to visit your country as my great Grandfather came from Glasgow as a homechild in 1893 and never made it back to his home land again.It sure looks beautiful.

    It is amazing and wonderful how many fans of the Doctor there are all around the world. The Doctor belongs to us all.

    @thedentistofdavros      I am a romantic at heart so I was ok with Rose and ten. My Fave so far is ten and Donna as I thought they had great chemistry as mates. I don’t know the BG Doctors well but I do love Sarah Jane with any Doctor and that goes for River as well. I am such a fan of the show that I love them all!

    @torchwood3   Welcome to site and I hope you like it here.  River and Jack together would be great. I am sure it would be a funny and dynamic pair up.

    @missy I can’t agree with you more. The chemistry between the two make me long for another few episodes with them together and since they have a 24 year night to spend they have lots of time for adventures. I would watch a whole series with them together again, it would be “fantastic”.

    @missy and   @ichabod     Count me in on the Chris Eccleston fan club!   I have never watched anything with him in it without being impressed with his talent. He is my Doctor, the one who got me hooked on Doctor Who and I will always be grateful to him. Go nine!

    I wonder what it would be like to have Donna as a companion for CapDoc. He would try to be all brooding and mysterious and she would just say “knock it off spaceman!” Just try and protect Donna and see where it gets you. Fail to protect her and it will be even worse. Duty of care…….OY!

    Definately a whole different series.

    @dalektor   I think with no-one to conquer and exterminate the Daleks would eventually go insane. A whole universe of insane Daleks with nothing to do but form a glee club. After learning to sing and dance they will be put on shows that will drive those few remaining “sane” Daleks insane also. After 146 hours of the Dalek version of Singing in the Rain, renamed “Exterminate, Exterminate”  anyone would lose their grip on reality.

    @dalektor   @puroandson   I always have trouble picking my favourite Doctor because it changes now and then. The Doctor I’m watching is usually #1  so now it’s the 12th. I really enjoy the 11th Doctor and all his amazing companions and 10 and his flirty ways but  the 9th Doctor will always be “my Doctor”. ChrisDoc is the first one I watched and I was hooked. Also a shout out to the War Doctor, he was great.

    I don’t have enough experience with BG Who so I haven’t picked any faves yet. My son has been getting me dvds so I hope to watch a few more episodes.

    My son visited today (as usual right at supper time) and brought me a nice big TARDIS mug as a gift. I told him I would use it while watching Doctor Who but if I wait till the new series it will sit on the shelf for a long while. Now I can put on my scarf and my cosy TARDIS slippers and drink my tea out of my new blue mug while eating cookies from my TARDIS cookie jar and watch Doctor Who dvd box sets.  Who nose what my boys would get me for birthdays etc. without my obsession to feed.

    Welcome  @theimpossiblegirl69  I like both your timey-wimey names. Chris was the first Doctor I watched and because of his work I am still watching Doctor Who,  all these doctors later. He was brilliant and I was sad to see him leave so soon. fathers day was one of my faves.

    @kbranagh    I agree about Clara. She is a good companion for this Doctor.

    While I have enjoyed the maturity of the CapDoc series , I also loved the playfulness of the 11th ,the flirtiness of 10 and the shell shocked 9th. So I am ready for whatever happens in the future and I know I will like it.

    @nerys  I loved Deep Breath for it’s comedy as you say layered between the drama. It was a great way to meet CapDoc for the first time. Having new Doctor anxiety after every regen, I am always on edge when I meet a new Doctor but after 10  or so minutes into the episode I thought “I like this new Doctor!” and I have enjoyed him since then. Thanks for reminding me how good this episode was…time for a rewatch.

    @missy     Oh yes, another mystery. The Doctor has no idea that she is still alive . She is yet another hybrid Time Lord wandering around the Universe in a space ship. Maybe she will run into Me and Clara or even her Dad one of these days.

    @puroandson   @arbutus   I have always liked the companion lite stories and also the Tenant specials where he had a new companion each episode but I wouldn’t want an entire series like that. I agree that a male buddy would be nice but who nose? I have rarely been close on any guess or theory. I would still like to see River now and then but not as a constant companion.

    #51163
    winston @replies

    @arbutus   @tardigrade           This episode showed us that the Doctor could get pretty angry and frustrated with his companion , although he is quick to forgive. I think Rose was much more the “puppy” to the ninth Doctor, scolded and forgiven because she didn’t know any better.She was after all  , only human.  The romantic type of relationship came later with the tenth but this early  pairing  was purely Time Lord and companion. The Doctor was lonely so he got a new puppy.

    @tardigrade  This is one of my favourites form the first series. The story of Rose trying to save her Dad and change her history is something most of us can understand. Which one of us hasn’t thought about doing this. “If I could go back in time I would change…….” But this episode points out the “rules of time travel” pretty clearly. You can’t change the past without consequences. The creatures were just the physical proof of those grave consequences. I agree about them not fitting in to the “lore “of Doctor Who but overall the emotion of this story made me forget about the creature and concentrate on the family of Rose,Pete and Jackie.

    @thedentistofdavros   So far I have been pleased with all the companions and I hope it will happen again. I might be in the minority but I would love to see the Doctor and River kicking around together, for a bit anyway. Maybe some adventures during that long night they have together? An alien companion would be good also, male or female.

    #51142
    winston @replies

    @ichabod  @kbranagh   I agree that CapDoc is very over protective of Clara in this series. I think he also sees that her loss of Danny has made her vulnerable and reckless to the extreme and he feels the need to protect her from herself. Even if she doesn’t want his help or protection.

    @puroandson    As I understand it , and anyone out there feel free to correct me, Brexit means Britain leaves the E.U. and Bremain means they stay. I have heard a bit about the referendum on Canadian news but I don’t know enough about it yet. I know the Prime Minister wants them to stay and London Mayor Boris Johnson wants to leave.That is what our news gives us and I will have to do my own research on the issue to find out more.

    I have no idea who or what a “Yaffley” is.

    @puroandson   I know what you mean. I like this old black box I call  “Pewter” See I named him too though not as imaginative as you did.  He has needed a few new parts and upgrades over the years  but he still works fine…most of the time . As my Mom used to say “if it’s not broke then don’t fix it”.

    @puroandson   I feel for you.   We have this “box” we rely on so much now to live our lives, yet we have no idea how the heck it works. Computers can be soooo frustrating. I have to call my son now and then to help me with mine which is 8 year old PC , so I can’t throw it even if I want to. As far as the mouse pad I have no idea cause I use an old timey mouse on my old timey desk.

    Hope all is well with you and family and good luck with your tech troubles.

    I  like Martha , although she is not my favourite companion , I enjoyed her time with the Doctor. I think from the speed of it ,that she had a crush on him rather than really being in love with the Doctor. After all he saved her life and the lives of most of the people in the hospital the first time she met him. He was handsome , a good kisser and  “a little magnificent”.  Not to mention those skinny suits. Heck , I had a crush on him.

    @thedentistofdavros    Not many people like the Doctor Who movie so you needn’t be sorry. Paul McGann does have a short prequel to the Day of the Doctor that you can watch on youtube. I think it is called The Night of the Doctor. You might like him in that.He’s very good.

    I am still contemplating my list of favourites. It is a difficult task.

    This episode will always be one that is painful for me to watch because of the scene in the diner. When Clara looks into the Doctors eyes and understands that he truly does not know her , she turns away from him with tears in her eyes and has to compose herself. I think (from personal experience ) that she does it to protect him , so he doesn’t get confused or even upset.

    A few years back when my Mum was in the hospital she was given a drug that interacted badly with other medications. One day she was fine. The next day when we went to see her she looked at me in a strange way and then asked my husband  “where is Winston?” “Right there” But she had no idea who I was, I saw it in her eyes and she was anxious and confused. I turned around with tears in my eyes and composed myself before turning back with a smile on my face.  My Mum was OK again within days of changing medicine but my heart cracked a little that day.

    That is how good Jenna’s acting is and how genius the writing is.

    @jimthefish    Oh yes , Sally Hawkins would make a great Doctor. A kind and compassionate one I would think.

    The grandkid  was a lttle too good at the “hard stare” we had to make her stop. She really liked the movie.

    Today I watched a very sweet movie called Cuban Fury. Two of the stars were Nick Frost and Olivia Colman , well known to us in Whoville.  The movie was made in 2014 and is the story of a Salsa dancer (Nick Frost) who comes to back to the dance after years of absence. If you like underdog stories or Salsa music and dancing this movie is for you. Nick and Olivia have some hot dance moves. Chris O’Dowd and Rashida Jones also dance their way through the movie.

    @jimthefish      We got Paddington when my 7 year old grandaughter was here and we all enjoyed it. Peter was very funny. A few tears were shed here as I love a happy ending.  My grandaughter did the “hard stare” at anyone she thought was rude for weeks after we watched it.

    @pedant            I agree about Martha being the rebound girl. Many people enter a new relationship far too soon and it rarely ends well. On the other hand Martha is a strong indepedant young women with  plans on being a doctor. She doesn’t run away from her old life when she goes with the Doctor, rather she runs towards adventure and new experiences. When she realizes what travelling with the Doctor has done to her family ,she is strong enough to say her piece and walk away,  slightly bruised but still able to hold her head high.

    @mersey      I have also wondered about poor old Brian. He was a favourite of mine and I hope he knew about River at least. What about Amy’s Mum and Dad ? She just got them back.I guess Clara can stop in at any time to see her Dad and maybe even her Mum.

    If the companions have a family then we will always be left with those  questions about what happenned to them. Something else for us to mull over on a cold winter night.
