Bio not provided
The only reason I bought it was because it had the extra features, since I already had all the episodes on other DVDs... I would have preferred the new features to come out on a disk of their own rather than having to buy the whole thing (I already had the Day of the Doctor DVD, the Time of the Doctor and other 11th Doctor specials DVD, so having doubles didn't go over well with my thrifty side lol)
And yeah, the box itself is very flimsy and cheap looking, and seriously, I'm always afraid of opening it coz I fear the top will tear off if I do! And don't get me started on the DVD covers... they really could have made an effort on those!
So yeah, I bought it coz it was the only way to get the Five-ish Doctors (which really should have been included in the 50th anniversary special DVD to begin with!) and the Adventure in time and space which I enjoyed too, but it's one purchase I wasn't completely satisfied with.... the one and only so far, and I hope it stays that way...

Oh gosh... In 49 years' time I'll be 76 years old lol. Okay, then! My new goal in life is to be alive and well so that I can go watch the 100th anniversary special at the cinema lol. It's good to have goals and I can't think of a better one to keep me going strong haha. :P

A year already... Time flies! :D We'll be watching An Unearthly Child and Day of the Doctor today... And maybe something else if we have enough time. It's gonna be a Doctor Who day! Then again, every day is Doctor Who day here. There isn't a day I don't watch an episode... or 5 lol. Happy Birthday Doctor Who!
23 hours, 9 minutes ago on Doctor Who’s 51st Anniversary
I'd take Journey, Psi, Saibra, Courtney or Rigsy. Journey and Courtney could have some serious development over time. Didn't care for Adrian, felt he was too cliché, just made for the episode lol. Perkins would have been good too, but he said no when the Doctor asked. Robin would be okay in small doses, but I doubt it's doable with the actor being so busy. And Orson would remind me too much of Danny, and I didn't like Danny... But yeah I agree, there were plenty who were companion material in series 8!

I actually prefer the Zygons and the Ice Warriors to the Cybermen and, to some extent, to the Daleks too (though I do like the Daleks better than the Cybermen)

Okay thanks. Sorry about all the questions, I sometimes get confused with all the different versions lol.
Ah okay. And limited edition is like the 50th collectors edition? Numbered and once they run out, they won't be making more?
2 days, 14 hours ago on The Complete Eighth Series Box Set Review
So are there 2 different DVD boxsets? A regular edition and a special edition? I only saw 1 on Amazon... Just wanted to make sure so I order the right one lol.
I don't know... Personally, it took me more than a whole season to actually start liking Tom Baker. I didn't find him likeable at first either. Not even sure why... He just annoyed the heck out of me for quite some time.
2 days, 16 hours ago on Capaldi Didn’t Want Twelve to Be Likeable
Exactly. The Doctor knows and understand grief... Heck, he's been thru it himself countless times now. He WAS angry with her (he said so when Doctor Chang asked about the swearing on the psychic paper "I've got a lot of internalised anger" Lol. And he was angry and not giving in when she was threatening him, but he let the whole scenario play out because he was giving her the benefit of the doubt. He ended it as soon as he saw her breaking down because he knew then that it was her grief speaking. Yeah he was angry and felt betrayed that she didn't come to him and just asked him in the first place. But he couldn't just abandon her... After all they've been thru together... And I really don't see 9, 10 or 11 sending her away, either.

Grrr... Darn auto correct... It should say "re-watching" there, not "re-watch in"
3 days, 15 hours ago on Capaldi Didn’t Want Twelve to Be Likeable
I agree. It was a great unveiling. It worked out well. It took me quite a while to "get" him but he was always obviously the Doctor, with glimpses bleeding thru, even if he wasn't always likeable lol. Re-watch in episodes after the series ended, I actually appreciated even enjoyed all the the grumpy, distant, temperamental moments, lol.
And now for the rest of the day I'm gonna have that image in my head of a grumpy butterfly wearing Capaldi's face lol. Thank you. :P
Yes, the betraying scene was in Dark Water. I was talking about 2 different scenes. The one on the beach was the other.
3 days, 16 hours ago on Capaldi Didn’t Want Twelve to Be Likeable
Yeah, I actually love his grumpy, temperamental, impatient side too. Sorry, Peter! :P
3 days, 20 hours ago on Capaldi Didn’t Want Twelve to Be Likeable
My favourite scenes were the one on the beach at the end of Mummy on the Orient Express and the great "do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference" moment. So glad they didn't remove them coz the beach scene is when he really clicked for me.

My Moffat faves... Ummm, no, nevermind... most are faves of mine and 28 of his episodes are in my top 45, so it'll be easier to just list all of them, since I only have marked 3 of them below 8 lol. :P

Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead 10/10
The Day of the Doctor 9.9/10
The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances 9.9/10

The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe 6.2/10
Oh mumble grumble.......... my eyes read "best finale" and my tired brain translated "best series", so I voted for series 8 instead of series 5 (my fave finale IS Pandorica/Big Bang even if my fave series is series 8! grrrr lol). That'll teach me to answer polls at night after a looooong exhausting work day lol! :P
Except it wasn't really her in Asylum and in The Snowmen. Sure it was the same actress, but it wasn't Clara. Just echoes of her, so I don't count them as her. But even if I did, it's not a full series, just 1 episode at the beginning of the series and 1 at the end of the year.
5 days, 13 hours ago on Moffat Can’t Confirm Jenna Coleman for Series 9
I do hope she stays for series 9. She's only been here for 1 and a half series after all. But maybe they could shake things up a bit by adding a 2nd companion. But if she does leave at Xmas, I hope they give her a better exit than that of Death in Heaven. Though, I'm not sure what exactly a good exit should be lol.

5 days, 17 hours ago on Moffat Can’t Confirm Jenna Coleman for Series 9
Nah, it's just more withholding of information so that we don't know if she's staying or leaving before we watch the xmas episode. They've been playing that game for most of the 2nd half of the series, why would they stop now? Lol. :P
The first series where I haven't marked an episode below 7.5! I mean, most of the others had at least 1 episode that got below average marks (series 2 even had 2 episodes that got a 3/10 and a 3.5/10 which is rare for me lol) But this one was the most consistent for me (despite not really getting into the whole Clara/Danny thing)
Mummy on the Orient Express 1010
Dark Water 10
Time Heist 9.8
Death in Heaven 8.9
The Caretaker 8.7
Deep Breath 8.6
Kill the Moon 8.4
In the Forest of the Night 8

@coecludd If he's been moping for whatever length of time, he probably just hasn't changed the light bulb lol. Who knows how long it was between the time he left Clara behind and the time Father Christmas visited him... :P
@The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live the guessing game. not the guessing them... and I don't even have the excuse of auto correct lol :P
@The Lazy Cat's Soufflé Was too Beautiful to Live No clue... Yes. No. One or the other, lol. :D All I know is that all this trying to guess after every other episode has worn me out, so I gave up and am now just in waiting mode and not trying to figure it out anymore, like a good little girl, lol. :D It was okay trying to guess from week to week, but 6 weeks is waaaaaayyyy too long for poor my heart and my tired brain to play the guessing them lol.
Finally got around to ranking the finales lol. I usually give each episode a mark, so I had to average them out - those that have several episodes, that is. Just never took the time to do so, until today.
1 week, 1 day ago on New Who Finales in Perspective: Series 5
Her gran's or her dad's, perhaps.
Pandorica / Big Bang is my favourite finale of all times and both episodes sit at the top of my list, and have been for years. Okay, I didn't actually start making a list until series 7 ended, lol... but there are some episodes that really stuck with me and these 2 are up there with the best for me. There are episodes which grew on me over time, but I fell in love with Pandorica and Big Bang from day 1. They enchanted me when they first aired, and they have lost none of their appeal 4 years later. The twist, the humour, the quirks, the plot, the pace, the magic, the speeches, the wedding, the acting and interactions, the emotions, the freshness, the timey wimey... It all came together wonderfully for me. 10/10
@An all you can eat buffet you can buy them on their website at bigfinish.com , the oldest ones (the first 50) are cheap... for the newer ones, i tend to wait for sales and buy when they're having a sale. But I usually get downloads, not CDs. I have a friend who buys them on Amazon and says it has decent prices.

Night of the Doctor (loved loved loved loved it, when he appeared on the screen I sat there frozen on the spot and I didn't say a word until a good 5 minutes after it was over lol
The Movie (I watched the movie 3 years ago and fell in love with McGann's voice right there and then lol)
The Witch from the Well
I'm far from having listened to all of the Big Finish 8th Doctor stories, so my range is limited, but these are the ones I've enjoyed the most so far.
The switch turns it on. It doesn't work unless it's turned on. Else the Doctor wouldn't have needed to send it from his pocket to Clara so she could throw it back at him to be used on their restraints in Deep Breath. If he could just think orders at it when it's off, it wouldn't need a switch. But he does need to turn it on first, hence the switch.... Never seen the toy sonics so no clue how many buttons they have but I doubt they have 1 for each setting...

1 week, 2 days ago on Face-Off: New Who Masters
@CharlesCornelius @ChristianBanford @ElyotWren It didn't use to do all the stuff it does either... it gets upgraded from time to time and telepathic circuits or whatnot are just a part of it. The TARDIS rebuilds them when they get destroyed... the TARDIS is telepathic... it's not a stretch than to imagine that the TARDIS includes some telepathic abilities in its programming when she does. They still use the buttons for certain things. But how else does the Doctor know what the sonic reads when it scans, without even looking at it? Or even looking at it when it doesn't even have a screen on which to read the info, come to think of it? He can telepathically reads the results...

Oh, geesh! I don't know............... They're all good but we didn't see enough of Derek Jacobi as the Master to judge him. And even though I loved Michelle Gomez, I need to see how she develops before I can judge her too. Simm was great too... but sometimes over the top, especially with the flying and lighting bolts lol. So, what to do? What to do? It's between Gomez and Simm for me but I really can't choose! Tell you what, it's time for bed, so I'll sleep on it and will try and vote tomorrow, lol. :P

@Antee991166 @LGwalchmai95 I agree that she had no reason to destroy a retreating ship... had the ship turned around and come back for more, then yes, in self defence sure. But they were leaving and were not threatening when she had them blown up. But was the Doctor right in having her sack? No, I don't think he was. He had no business doing that any more than she had any business destroying the ship.

@ElyotWren Wish comments posted in the right order... Hard to see who is replying to who lol. I don't have a problem with a telepathic sonic at all. Makes perfect sense to me. ^^;
@CharlesCornelius Telepathic isn't thinking though... it's communicating with thoughts. To use it, you just have to think what you want it to do and send the command that's in your head. The sonic doesn't think... it just reacts to the thoughts because the thoughts activate the settings.
At least since Amy. Never paid attention to it but I remember Amy pointing and thinking when she and Rory were in the Teselecta.

Oh thanks! I'll try that. I thought about the studio in Cardiff but not sure if it'd get to the team or just get lost in an office lol.
True. You never know I suppose. ^^; I keep thinking if I knew where to send it, I'd send them a thank you card... But I don't, so this is as close as I can get lol.
Ever since watching my first DW confidential, and also reading about the filming, I've been impressed with how much work goes into it and I'm thankful for every episode. :)
