Like when Adric died... They barely brushed the subject at the beginning of the next episode and that was that... It took all of 2 minutes for the aftermath to be dealt with, if memory serves. I didn't like that.
6 hours, 32 minutes ago on Coleman on Capaldi’s “Mad Curiosity”, Clara’s Home Life
@DWTV @TardisBoy Exactly. My dad grew up watching the show in the 60s... he often refers to him as Doctor Who too.

@MrRazza, the Newly Qualified Omega Identifier @TardisBoy Nothing says you can't have a triple diploma... get all the bases covered and become the Expert Rani, Omega and Master Identifier! :D
@Planet of the Deaf @TheDreamer to me, it feels too much like funeral clothes, lol o.O
1 day, 5 hours ago on Moffat on Capaldi’s “Grey-haired stick-insect” Look
I'm probably gonna get booed lol but I don't care for the red lining... Or the white shirt. I prefer the purple shirt. Something about the contrast between white and dark that I don't like all that much.
Having said that, it won't matter much coz I don't really notice what everyone is wearing when I'm drawn into a story... unless it's really weird lol.

@Planet of the Deaf @bl0ndie98 unless they do a simultaneous broadcast, it might not even be shown in France the same day... A French friend of mine told me that they didn't show the Time of the Doctor on TV there until 22 March!

@TARDlSkey @TheDreamer @supermoff He merely acknowledges that not everyone understands it the same way he does... that unless you have lived with that culture your whole life, you're not necessarily going to be as familiar with it was he is.

@Castrovalva @MrRazza, the Newly Qualified Omega Identifier they had spare parts and a few others as downloads for £1 yesterday too. i grabbed them all lol
6 days, 10 hours ago on Happy Birthday, Big Finish! 15 Picks for 15 Years
@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.
6 days, 13 hours ago on Five Expectations for Series 8
@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.

@TARDlSkey @supermoff why would he refute it? If it helps her sort it out in her head... it probably amuses him but he has enough manners not to point out her limitations lol
1 week ago on Moffat Questions “Twelfth Doctor” Title
@supermoff He was pointing at his face when he said that, didn't he? I think...
@Runcible ooooh i forgot, i downloaded those and never listened to them! duh me lol....... :/ thanks for reminding me! :D
1 week ago on Happy Birthday, Big Finish! 15 Picks for 15 Years
@gwylock1 @MeglosProductions I for one enjoyed the Sirens of Time. :)
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.
@Ivegotnewkidneys on the 23rd @Notsosmartguy approves of female thor Clara could also come back as one of her echoes... so in essence Jenna wouldn't really be leaving, hence no announcements, lol.
1 week, 1 day ago on SFX #251 Previews Series 8
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.
1 week, 1 day ago on Will There Be a 10th Anniversary Special for the Revival?
I always assumed it was telepathic too. It doesn't look like there is anything to read on it, from the pictures, but I dont have one so I can't say for certain.
1 week, 1 day ago on Doctor Who’s Biggest Deus Ex Machina
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.
1 week, 4 days ago on Bring Back… Sky Smith
@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.
1 week, 4 days ago on Doctor Who’s Biggest Deus Ex Machina
@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.
@ahunter8056 Nah, we all miss stuff now and again, lol.
@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.
1 week, 4 days ago on Cybermen Invade London (Again!)
Oh now that's a great idea! Yeah, that would work. Good thinking. :)
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.
@Notsosmartguy approves of female thor @LGwalchmai95 When they pushed the Dalek through the painting and walked in after it, I just had a big smile on my face and I said "the Oncoming Storm has arrived... times 3!" loudly enough for everyone in the room to hear lol. Yeah, badass! I still smile just thinking about it, lol. :D
@TheTimeTraveller is excited for Capaldi A mere 5 weeks. A drop of time in the sea of hours we've had to wait since Christmas lol. :D
1 week, 5 days ago on Cybermen Invade London (Again!)
I've been thinking that something like a Children in Need multi doctor minisode would be a nice way of marking the 10th anniversary. And maybe an extra something on the side that showed how it all got started again...
1 week, 6 days ago on Will There Be a 10th Anniversary Special for the Revival?
Sadly, I have lived under a rock for a long time coz I just googled what he played in and I have not seen any of his films or any of the series he played in, lol. So I'll just have to take your word that he would make a good Master. I mean, I heard his name of course, but that's about it. :/
2 weeks, 1 day ago on McGann: Charles Dance Would Be a Great Master
@zketchgeek They were in Inverness a few years ago... when Karen and Matt did their DW tour. They started with Inverness and ended it with Northampton, I think.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on An Audience with Capaldi & Coleman, Seoul World Tour Updates

@Amy is Hannibal no no no, i meant the doctor's comment about being half human...
3 weeks, 2 days ago on The Doctor: Half-Human on his Mother’s Side?
@MrRazza, the Trainee Omega Identifier Yes, thank you DWTV! And I'm certainly glad we can talk to each other again. I read the article about the leaks and kinda felt sad that I might get cut off from everyone here for the next 47 days lol. You guys are my little whovian family, lol. :D
3 weeks, 3 days ago on The 3rd Doctor: Five Favourites
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.
2- The Three Doctors
3- Death to the Daleks
4- The Time Warrior
5- Frontier in Space
Depends for who... I live in Inverness - London isn't any easier to get to than Cardiff is from here. In fact, Cardiff is probably closer. Now if they showed it in Glasgow (for example, since it's where Capaldi's from), I'd be a happy girl lol.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Series 8: Watch Deep Breath First
@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

Thanks, Amy. I keep hearing that said, but I wasn't sure where it came from. :)
