@supermoff  @TimeWar Nah, she wasn't going to die... Had she been an echo, she would have died in the first episode of the series, like the other echoes... and if she was the real original one, they weren't going to kill her off before the arc was completed. At least that was my reasoning when I watched lol.

@supermoff  @Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd Midnight was one of the very few episodes that really kept me on edge lol. Although... I wasn't really scared per say, just really really tense and holding my breath. I find it a very draining episode, with all the tension, the fighting, the anger... I love it yet I rarely watch it for that reason lol.

More for my list! I only recently started Big Finish and I don't have any of those lol.


I only have patient zero, project lazarus, the dark flame, sirens of time, neverland, zagreus (all of which i have listened to and enjoyed), and i just got leviathan, the 1st sontarans, the guardians of prophecy, the children of seth, the song of the megaptera, earth aid, the nightmare fair, jubilee and the harvest, but have yet listened to them. I'm saving them for our trip to cardiff next month lol. I also have the time machine, but even if the plot itself appealed to me and jenna did a good job narrating, i'm not a fan of narrated stories; i much prefer the full cast audios.


I want to get scherzo and a few dozen others too, but need to slow down or i'll drain our bank account lol.

On the other hand, if series 1 hadn't been successful, we might not have had a 50th to celebrate at all... I don't think some form of acknowledgment would hurt anything. A minisode would work.

I haven't finished watching SJA yet... I saw her on CBBC once in one of the later episodes and she seemed okay, though (I think it was the one where Clyde was driven away by everyone because of that curse, and every time someone said his name, people got angry)


I wouldn't say bring her back, though, as she's never been on Doctor Who, lol. Sorry, just me being pedantic, lol.

@LucasW Because the cyberman didn't know the sonic didn't work on wood... It verified that the signal was sent so, as far as it knew, the sonic had really reversed the firearm's polarity. The Doctor did send the signal to the sonic, it's just that the sonic was never going to comply, as it doesn't work on wood.

@doctorwhomultiverse Yeah but there's a charger slot in the TARDIS... Even so, yeah I guess they could use that idea. Doctor points sonic at the problem - oops sonic is out of charge... 5 seconds to think of something clever to get out of explody wody situation, lol. There have been times where it stopped working, so some things do affect it. Others can easily be added to the list.

@MeglosProductions  And in the old days, they looked like they were wearing silver clothes. The first time I saw the old cybermen, I had a hard time taking them seriously. I'm okay with any of the designs now though. What I can't stand is the electronic voice in Tomb of the Cybermen... it really, really, really grated on me lol. Loved the episode, don't get me wrong, I just can't stand that voice. Oh, and it looked very odd to me when they bled in Attack of the Cybermen.

Personally, I have no problem with the sonic. It does move things along which helps, when you only have 45 minutes for a story. If the format was different, they would have more time to set things up and keep thing moving more slowly, I guess. If the Doctor spends 20 minutes finding a way out of his cell, there won't be much time for the rest of the story. Although it would be nice to have something like the 3rd Doctor did in Death to the Daleks, with the tests in the city, I'm not sure it would fit in the current format.




I think the way it's used also changes with the Doctor and his personality. 11 was more inclined to whip it out out of habit, I guess. They do poke fun at that at times, in certain episodes... A Town Called Mercy jumps to mind, when the Doctor analyses the "load of stones and lumps of wood". And they did plenty of that in Day of the Doctor too... It looks likes 12 holds it differently too. So maybe he'll use it differently. We'll see...



I felt the ending was a bit abrupt in the Power of Three, yeah, but what bothered me more was that Amy and Rory wheeled Brian out of the ship then, when they came back, they left everyone else there and spent their time chinwagging with the Doctor instead of saving the others, lol. He didn't destroy the ship with the sonic, though... it was the feedback of energy rushing back to the ship's controls that blew it up. If memory serves.



In Closing Time, he fried the cybermat's brain. While the green flash of light was odd, the idea itself didn't bother me that much, either.


And that painting moment in Day of the Doctor was one of those many moments I found purely awesome. When they pushed the Dalek through the painting and walked in after it, I just had a big grin on my face and my first thought was "the Oncoming Storm has arrived... times 3!" I still smile just thinking about it, lol. :D





To be honest, I didn't even know what that term Deus Ex Machina meant before I started joining DW groups last year, lol. It seems to be thrown around a lot and I'm still not sure what to make of it. Yeah, I could google it. and I might at some point, when I start to wonder too much, lol. For now, I just go with the flow.

@The8thDoctor The sonic didn't defeat the wooden cyberman... the Doctor simply bluffed and tricked the wooden cyberman into thinking he had sent the sonic a signal to change the fire's exit point, so that the cyberman would turn his weapon around and fire at itself instead.

I love the 3rd Doctor's calm confidence. I love Bessie. I love Jo. I like Sarah Jane and Liz. I love most of his outfits, though not at all sold on the red lined cape, lol - my fave is the green one, but the red/orange jacket he wore in the 3 Doctors suited him too.

But I started watching his run from the beginning, and had to take a break because I grew tired of everything being UNIT, episode after episode... Then a few months later, I decided to try going sorta backwards, from 6 to 7, then back to 5, then 4 and have been including some more of 3's episodes in the middle, as episodes have been suggested to me, and I have really enjoyed them. So I have seen about half his run... but so far, these are my five favourites. 


1- Inferno 

2- The Three Doctors

3- Death to the Daleks

4- The Time Warrior

5- Frontier in Space

@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier My rule one: don't anticipate/assume/expect too much, you'll only set yourself up for disappointment when what you expect doesn't come to pass. :D I'm excited for the new series, just as I was the past ones, but I've managed to avoid over-excitement and getting hyped up lol. I love seeing spoilers and teasers and filming titbits... I do enjoy seeing how they film stuff - it's fun to see the making of the series. But I have been just fine with observing without trying to guess what everything means or where such and such thing comes into play and why, how... and who is coming back or who will play what part... etc... etc... It's all just a jumble of fun facts in my head, and I like it that way, lol. :D

I thought they had a contract with the estate of Terry Nation to use the Daleks once a year or lose the rights? That's what I keep hearing at any rate. If so, it would explain why they were able to have long breaks from the Daleks in the old days but keep bringing them back since 2005.

To me, it doesn't matter which monster/enemy they use so long as the story is good. Having said that, I would love to see some of the classic enemies like Omega, and a few others back, yes. And I always enjoy seeing new ones as well.

From what I understand, there are monsters they can't use though, coz they belong to the writers who created them. So apparently it's not only about which monsters they want to use, it's also about which ones they are allowed to use.

3 weeks, 1 day ago on Is the Current Format a Serial Killer?

Reply

For me, it isn't the story spreading over half a dozen episodes that is a pb, it's mostly that, at times, they seem to add things that didn't feel necessary in order to fill all the time they were given. A prime example is The War Games where I feel they could have told the story in 6 episodes instead of stretching it to 10... To me - and I am aware that most classic fans love that story and that mine is an unpopular opinion - but all that running around, getting caught, getting sentenced to death, escaping, running around some more, getting caught again (albeit by a different faction) being questioned and locked up, escaping, etc... etc... Rinse and repeat over and over and over again... It got very tedious and repetitive... I loved the beginning and the last few parts but definitely could have done without a few of the others...

And it's not the only episode where I asked myself if some of it was really necessary, where some of it felt like filling time... Etc... It's just the one that stuck to mind even months after I watched it.
