Doctor Who

Aww, why? I actually liked most of it. The girl's accent drove me nuts, though.

Yeah - me too. I do like having stand-alone adventures, too.

 

Her accent was dire - but I was surprised (and interested)  to find that she has actually been blind since birth.

Most of it was ok. But the ending... holy cow. (or should I say

Spoiler

I'd rather that than the ending of Episode 3 - I KNOW that the original programme was meant to educate, and that they say this series gets back to that - but - it was TOO heavy handed.The episode spoke for itself.

And I thought it was cute that the frog had Grace's voice

If 3 was Rosa, I agree. I have preferred the non-Chibnall stories this season (though I still have two episodes to watch).

It was. I have three to watch - out of sequence, but too bad !

Well, yesterday's episode was the series finale (or season finale). We will have the New Year's special, and then... nothing until 2020!!

If there are more. My current TV magazine has the terrifying suggestion that there might not be. Yaz says she has no contract yet and that none of them do...

 

There is supposed to be some stunning surprise that hits us in the Special. I HOPE it isn't going to be what I am deathly afraid it might be.... and if it is - as was once suggested - a love interest involving Missy and the doctor, I may shoot myself. I can't get my partner to understand this - but Dr Who is NOT ABOUT LOVE STORIES.... There is no TIME for that. We need more  time with the Uz, not kissy kissy and moon eyes. There are plenty of love-story programmes on TV as it is.

Ooh, horrid thought, Fuzzbucket. :(

 

This is the first year in years I actually have no plans for Christmas Day evening, and there's no Doctor Who to watch. *sighs*

 

I really disliked that tooth-faced alien in episode one and I disliked him just as much last night.

 

The 2020 announcement...

Doctor Who: The continuing adventures of one alien as he time-travels through the universe, saving planets, defeating evil, and running for his life. There's an outrageous amount of running involved.

 

A-ha, "he", sure...

 

Can't say much about the new lads and lass, haven't even seen all of the old ones yet. Veered off into Pertwee's Navy Lark (unrelated, but I do like his voice and they do joke about him being the Doctor at times) and haven't been back yet. Like one Navy Lark character said, I "have a one-track mind" and don't really enjoy sad-dramatic stories, or digging through all the plots to find hints for future arks ("Bad Wolf", I'm looking at you), or looking at characters behaving in the most heart-breaking manner (no, I can't believe he never visited Sarah, a cup of tea is a sacred thing to that Doctor), or seeing monsters defy the laws of inertia even if they're not meant to (School Reunion again)... even if some of the quotes I see are quite tempting. Even if he had at least once turned out to be "not quite as disagreeable as I thought". I'm not the right mood and that's that. Still grin at random TARDIS noises and Whovian references, even if hardly anybody would actually see the item as a reference and try to visit the convention surrounds :D

 

Hmmm, that's and idea, about references and random ideas... Maybe not for a t-shirt, because due to copyright I wouldn't dare draw a blue square on anything other people see, but as a bit of a private fan-art?.. Gonna be a nightmare in logistics, or a severely cut-down version, but they'll illustrate a certain quote beautifully!

Ooh, quiet thread.

 

I have been reading the 13th Doctor books (there are three of them). One good, one plodding, one I have not finished as yet.

 

 

I've been reading 4th book before I knew what he looked like (can't tell the name off the top of my head). A favourite of mine is 3rd's "Catastrophea", should you come across one. Not the most known, it seems...
