Kill the Moon, but only coz it's the next one and I know nothing about the others. That and I can only deal with 1 at a time so I focus on the coming episode first, then the next, etc... lol.

@supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. Me neither! I just wrote the same thing, lol... great minds... :D
4 days, 11 hours ago on Rate & Discuss The Caretaker
Not sure how to rate the episode yet... As usual, I need to watch it a second time to make up my mind. It was entertaining but, for now, it's at the bottom of the list with Into the Dalek. Okay 2nd last maybe, coz I liked this one better lol. But Into the Dalek got a 7.5, so it's still good, lol.
There were some hilarious scenes and we laughed often, so that was good. The monster wasn't anything special but I guess it wasn't meant to be centre stage.
I'm glad to see Courtney isn't as bratty as she seemed to be in the brief moments we saw her before. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt anyway, since it's hard to tell from just a few seconds. But I definitely liked her today and I liked the interactions between the Doctor and her. I do hope they don't kill her in the next episode! I think it would be nice to have a new "Ace-like character" on board eventually... If she can get over being space sick that is, lol. :D
BTW, do they provide chairs with names for all the actors? Just wondering if that means she'll be sticking around and will be recurring often enough to warrant an inscription, or if it's normal for everyone to get their names on a chair...
Danny and the Doctor will likely learn to get along eventually, but I don't really care at this point - not sure why but I haven't really warmed up to Danny Pink yet (he's okay and he saved the world so hey that's good lol) but their scenes were a bit awkward... Though I don't think the Doctor treated Danny any worse than he treated Mickey in series 1, really. He was harsh with him yeah...
And how the Doctor did not make the connection between Danny and Orson is a mystery lol. Maybe he had too much on his mind and filed it under things to let register later? Who knows...
Shame we didn't see Ian, though...
So anyway, I will be back tomorrow to rate it, after I watch it again... these are just raw thoughts. ^^;
You HAD to mention that, did you..... :D Brrrrrrrrrr...

No way... I can't watch it again... Saw it yesterday and I was petrified. I bloody hate big hairy Spiders, they scare me to death lol. But also, the whole atmosphere - feeling claustrophobic just from the scene where they're looking for a door. Darkness, Spiders, dangers and no way out. Oh my goodness... I predict nightmares lol.
Time Heist for me. ^^;
Time Heist (9.5) Entertaining story, great pace, good plot, interesting characters I wouldn't mind seeing again, brilliant monster. The memory wipe scene was a fantastic way of starting an episode. And the ending was lovely. Saving a species from extinction as the Doctor's reward - very Doctor-like.
Journey to the Centre of the Tardis (8.5) Loved the concept and it was nice to see more of the inside of the Tardis. Some nice dialogues. I loved the zombie creatures idea too.
The Curse Of The Black Spot (6.5) Some nice scenes and funny moments and brilliant acting, but I just never really got into it. Just can't quite put my finger on what doesn't work in it for me. It was fun to watch, for the most part. I was gonna say I'm not a pirate fan, but that's not entirely true coz I love the Pirates of the Caribbean films lol. So, I don't know...

@kanlo I was surprised too! (raises both hands and waves) Add my husband and my brother and sister-in-law to the list too. And my 2 nephews... And my dad too. I asked around me this week... most people I know were surprised. I'm very far from knowing everyone in the whole world lol, but still, clearly not everyone had guessed it.

Ditto. I'm usually confused and scattered after a first viewing coz my brain is still absorbing everything it just received. It starts to finally settle in after a 2nd viewing, though it sometimes takes 3 or 4 before everything lol.

He could get inside the places where he left the clues by Tardis. He couldn't get into the secure areas like the vaults with it. And the only time he was able to, thanks for the solar storm tripping the system and deactivating the safeties, the Tardis would not have be able to get thru because of the same solar storm.

She probably would have kept it "just in case" she didn't believe him and she might have figured him mad, but they did manage to get all the way to her private vault... She might have been curious enough.
1 week, 1 day ago on 12 Great Moments From Time Heist
Yeah just a paradox. Sorta like in Big Bang with the Doctor giving his sonic to Rory so he could get him out of the Pandorica even though he had his sonic with him while he was in the Pandorica. :) I find it easier to let them slide and stop my mind from going over the loop when they happen lol. :D
Hmmm... I started watching in 2010, so Amy was my first companion and Eleven was my first Doctor. I loved the Doctor from the start and I like Amy well enough but she isn't my fave companion, heck she isn't even in my top 10... And the 11th Doctor is still my favourite Doctor, after going back and watching all of modern Who and 3/4 of Classic. I guess I don't conform - typical me lol. :D
1 week, 2 days ago on Celebrating “The Highlander” and “The Bad Wolf”
@RoastNewt @TheDreamer I made the mistake of starting from the beginning, when I started watching classic. The stories were good, mostly, but way too long for me who has the attention span of a turnip lol. So I stopped watching for a couple of months, then tried again with some of Troughon's episodes, then stopped again (though I decided that I really loved Troughton's Doctor right then and there, even if I couldn't sit through his whole era yet lol). Then, after another break, I tried Pertwee and though I was enjoying it a bit more, I grew tired of every episode being UNIT related, lol. So I skipped ahead and watched some that weren't. But it was still too long winded for me, lol.
So I thought the best way to ease myself into it was to start from the end, which was newer and had shorter episodes, as I figured it would be less of a culture shock. I watched all of Colin Baker's era and really loved him too and enjoyed most of his episodes, and finally started getting used to things. Watched all of McCoy's next. Then went back and worked on Davison's but that was a bit more tedious as Tegan really got on my nerves a lot lol. Then I watched all of Tom Baker's back to back, and now am working my way thru Pertwee's! Well... I was, but series 8 started and I haven't gone back yet, lol. But I find each era easier going backwards. I'm weird like that, lol. :D
@The Outer Space K9 Patrick Troughton and Colin Baker are mine. ^^; We were at the Experience in August and I almost bought Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear coz I had heard they were both really good, but I was already buying too many things so I put them back on the shelf lol. Now, of course, I wish I hadn't...
@ Notsosmartguy The new Caretaker. @The Lazy Caretaker Cat I liked Angie and Artie. And Amelia. And Elliot. And Merry Galel. And wee Barnable. And Toby (the kid from Curse of the Black Spot, I think his name's Toby) And Lily Orwell. And young Kazran. And George the Tenza. Oh heck, I even liked Chloe Weber! I don't know... I have a soft spot for kids lol. :P
@YaelMoise Me too! Adric over Tegan, I mean... (since my message will most likely end up at the bottom of the pile, I figure I ought to say what I'm saying me too to lol)
@TheDreamer Good to know I'm not alone - getting lynched alone is no fun lol. :D Rest of my answer is just below. Livefyre's reply format is kinda weird... wish we could answer more than 1 person at a time, but I copied/pasted you in the other message, hopefully it worked! ^^;
@RoastNewt @TheDreamer @YaelMoise Okay, maybe 7 parts instead of 6? 7 would do lol. It was mostly the back and forth, rinse and repeat thing with them running around the place, getting caught and taken in for questioning, them sentenced to death, locked up, escaping... over and over and over... that I found boring. I found myself yawning quite a few times lol.
I don't remember exact details of each part either. It just felt like they were filling time. I know there were new things added each time they escaped, but surely it could have been shortened? I really enjoyed the parts on Gallifrey and the "trial", the Doctor's speech, his goodbyes to Jamie and Zoe and his regeneration.
I watched the whole thing in 1 sitting... which might have been a mistake, coz I really do have a hard time with the long format - after watching all of the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Doctors eras back to back over a 3 month period, I'm finally used to 4-parters lol. Now struggling with 7 and up lol. Though really it depends on the episode... When done well, 6 or 7 parts are no problem.
A very happy birthday to both Frazer and Billie! Both talented actors and goods companions. :)
Great choices, though I think that if the War Games was only 6 parts long, it would be perfect. I didn't care for the middle parts - go ahead, shoot me, I know I'm the only person in the whole world who didn't love it lol :P I did enjoy the first few parts and loved the last few. I have unfortunately never seen the Highlanders and Enemy of the World. :/
Free the other Teller... not let oops.
1 week, 2 days ago on 12 Great Moments From Time Heist
To ask him to break into her bank and let the other Teller she had kept prisoner in her private vault.
I don't know... Saving a species from extinction is rather important. That's the sort of occasion the Doctor would jump at, even more so now that he's questioning himself about being a good man. Plus he seems to relish the thrill of managing something that's supposed to be impossible.
Same for me. I only started to think maybe it was him, when he said I hate the Architect - he thinks he's clever, he's a bit full of himself... Or however the little speech went lol. Until then I was totally clueless.
Good picks. :) I would put the memory worm scene higher up myself, maybe even in 1st place, but all good choices. :)
And the more I read comments everywhere, the more I feel like I'm the only one who didn't guess that the Doctor was the Architect lol. The hints didn't register. At all... :P The memory worm didn't trigger any suspicion in my mind coz he already dealt with a memory worm in a previous episode so it made sense that he'd recognise it. And I figured he recognised Psi's chip and the teleport devices coz he's been travelling for at least 1500 years and has been to a lot of places, so I figured it was something he came across in his travels. He had, after all, no memory of anything between the time he picked up the Tardis phone and the time they were all in the room holding the worms, so my poor brain didn't make a connection lol.
1 week, 3 days ago on 12 Great Moments From Time Heist
@supermoff is your new lodger- I mean, caretaker. I completely agree - the memory wipe scene was really cleverly done... it threw me right in and caused me to feel as confused and disorientated as the group as they found themselves in the room without knowing what they were doing there lol. It was perfect!
@Rani Nose i wondered about that too
@tom colman @TheDreamer @gunslinger19 I think you missed my point. The events were time locked - or should be, which isn't necessarily the same, but let's assume that they were... The aforementioned events were not happening back when the Doctor was a child. Even if it was on Gallifrey, that doesn't mean the time lock was there at the time of the Doctor's childhood. If the whole of Gallifrey's history was time locked from beginning to end, how did Time lords travel to it and from it before the time lock was activated? It's not like they could travel in and out of the time lock, they were trapped inside it. "But we're still trapped inside the Timelock, sir. The link is nothing more than a thought, an idea." Nothing can get in or get out of the Timelock.

@YaelMoise I took that to mean that he'd prefer if if she kept him company in his travels rather than her going on a date and leaving him to travel alone. He's not interested in her in a romantic sense, he's interested in her company. Maybe he worries that she might stop travelling with him? Finding the most thrilling destinations and such might be is idea of keeping her interested in sticking around, lol.

Then you also have fans of classic who don't like such and such classic era, so there's plenty more combinations possible. It's complicated lol. The important thing is that we're all fans and all get the show at our own level of knowledge and understanding.

@tom colman @gunslinger19 "These events should be time-locked. We shouldn't even be here." Not "it"... the events are time locked, the events are part of the time war and the time war not just on Gallifrey.
Lovely story, I enjoyed if very much. Good plot, good pace, some really nice shots, good music (I rarely notice the background music so, for me to take notice of it, it's gotta be good lol :P ) interesting characters I wouldn't mind seeing again (just a bit more fleshed out next time since, here, they were only flushed out as much as the story needed them to be lol), brilliant monster, a fantastic way of starting an episode and a really lovely ending! Not a dull moment. Another 9/10 for me!

@CraigCheshire @TheDreamer hmmmm... come to think of it, when Leela was on Gallifrey, they probably didn't all speak English to her (or whatever language Leela spoke anyway) and she did understand them...
@jpepelko @TheDreamer @treker68 Hmmm... yeah it would make sense as the Doctor was time travelling and the invaders were just teleporting or trasmating or however they did their shift from silvery blur to fully visible thing, lol.
1 week, 5 days ago on Listen: Breaking the Time Lock?
@treker68 I rewatched the Deadly Assassin yesterday and the Doctor managed to land the Tardis near the Capitol despite the barriers being us. He was noticed, tracked and guards were sent to intercept him as he arrived, but he still landed the Tardis. Unless I missed something...
"Sector seven, sector seven, alert. Unauthorised capsule entry imminent. Repeat, unauthorised capsule entry imminent. Stand to on sector seven."
"Well done, Hildred. An antiquated capsule, for which you get adequate early warning, tranducts on the very perimeter of the Capitol. You are informed that the occupant is a known criminal, whereupon you allow him to escape and conceal himself in a building a mere fifty three stories high. A clever stratagem, Hildred."
In the Invasion of Time, the Doctor had to order K9 to physically take down the barriers so the humans who were trying to invade Gallifrey to pass through, so who knows...
@MrRazza, Latest Result: Mr Pink is Human True... my theory has been that the Doctor would not take the chance of walking miles and miles across a desert with the most dangerous weapon in the universe on his back, no protection and no Tardis, when there were billions and billions of Daleks in orbit attacking the planet and however many on the ground tracking him and generally exterminating the population. Basically, I didn't think he'd take the chance of it falling into Dalek hand/tentacles. But yours is making more sense, him trying to stay out of Time Lords' detection range. His leaving the Tardis behind makes sense that way too, since Timelords could recall Tardises from just about anywhere. He'd have driven to his chosen place, landed and quickly gotten out to minimise the chances of getting hijacked, I guess.
River told Amy in A Good Man Goes To War that it doesn't translate Gallifreyan though.
Maybe that's the difference yeah. I only watched them this past year and I'm 27. Don't know...
