@supermoff @ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey @Seaborn W Deadman Oh wait! I think you might be onto something here... Missy must be their daughter from the future, LOL. :P
1 day, 1 hour ago on A Study of Pink: Danny Speculation
@Planet of the Deaf When the girl said her name was Journey Blue, it kinda nagged at me that Danny was Danny Pink and I've been trying to convince myself that it's just a coincidence, lol, but I do feel there's something going on there lol.Blue... Pink... I mean, of all the names you could choose for characters, choosing colour names (albeit different ones) for 2 different characters in the same episode... hmmmm... it kinda sets my brain alarms off lol.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey I didn't know what to think, not having much info on him, so I just took a wait and see approach. I still don't really know what to think of him, so I'm still in that same wait and see mode, lol.
@Whodman6 Yup... and the only reason they're refusing to announce if Capaldi and Jenna have signed for next year is coz they're planning on axing the programme but don't wanna tell us yet! LOL. :P :D

@bringmeknitting @YaelMoise @Amy says Peter Davison is the Thirteenth Doctor! I see a bit of 7, a bit of 6 and a bit of 4 in him, but yeah I agree he is his own Doctor. Though I have yet to figure out what exactly that is, lol.
1 day, 19 hours ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek
@PhotonFromOz Yup. I'm watching it again now and the Doctor's exact words are "watch it, decontamination tubes are hot"
What if the Timelords sent more than just regeneration energy when they sent the Doctor his new cycle thru the crack on Trenzalore? What if someone - someone who has control of the Matrix maybe? What if that someone tampered with it? Hmmm...
Or... what if Missy's "Paradise" is in fact a TARDIS? Or a virtual world similar to the one in Silence in the Library, where dead people get uploaded? Or an alternate world where those people didn't die but instead ended up in a place that looked like whatever place in which they most desired to be - sorta like an illusion, maybe so they can be used against the Doctor later... Or maybe it's the Doctor's doing? Maybe he has a deal with this Missy to save those he has to kill or who die "because of" him or for him and whatnot. Or he thinks he has a deal, but perhaps later it'll backfire and he'll find out that it was only a trap? Hmmmmm...
Yes, yes... my brain is in strange theories mode lol. :P I feel like Brian Pond with the cubes lol. :D

@PhotonFromOz I think the Doctor warned them that they were going to go thru decontamination (or something or other) and that it might be hot, which is why I didn't blink when they ended up dry. But maybe I imagined it? I only watched it once and dialogues tend to blur in my head until I watch it a few times lol.
@ Notsosmartguy the dalek of Jersey Not disappointed per say but yeah I thought they'd be there too.
@supermoff Ditto. :) I often end up catching things I'd missed on first viewing... it's how my brain works, lol... it catches some stuff the 1st time, then catches a few more the 2nd time, and some more the 3rd time, and so on lol...
Well... my hubby and I are not included in these ratings coz our router's connection went down 15 minutes into the episode last night, so we had to wait until it worked again before we could finally watch the episode... and we ended up watching it an hour later on iPlayer. :P And my parents aren't included either coz they were out - they said they'd watch it tonight on BBC 3 (they don't do iPlayer for some reason, lol) And my brother-in-law and sister-in-law will also catch up on iPlayer as they aren't home this weekend at all. And I'm sure we're not the only 3 households that didn't watch it live on TV...

I took the abrupt shift in conversation as him suddenly deciding to ask, even though he was afraid of the answer. Pretty much as he told Clara. Between the moment he decided to fetch her and the moment they got back in the Tardis, he had plenty of time for an internal debate. Being afraid of her answer, he was afraid of asking, but then suddenly and before he changed his mind, he went on with it. Opening up isn't an easy thing for him but he trusts Clara so, if not her and not now, he might never ask, and he knows he does need to have an answer.

@MikeHumphreys @TheDreamer I'm eagerly waiting for Listen. Everything I heard or seen about it sounded great. I'm thinking it might keep me on edge though, lol. :D
2 days, 8 hours ago on Rate & Discuss Into the Dalek
The new Doctor certainly seems to be the "end justifies the means" type... reminds me a bit of McCoy's Doctor at times. Not a lot, but some. And he tells it like it is, like Colin Baker's Doctor lol. And aherm... he's a bit rude at times too. :P
Definitely darker yeah, less clear cut... A bit chaotic? Still not sure what to make of him. I like him well enough but his personality is sorta difficult to pinpoint and that makes it hard to familiarise myself with him. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it does keep me in waiting mode, if that makes sense. ^^;
And that Missy again... Intriguing... A thought struck me, probably only due to the episode's theme and how they messed with the Dalek's memories. But what if she's in the Doctor's mind, somehow messing with him? Or maybe it's just the Doctor just losing his mind, lol. Dunno... just a silly thing my brain cooked up. She did say "I think I'll keep it" when talking about the Doctor's accent last week. Like it's hers to keep or something, lol. Or maybe it's in the Matrix... like in Trial of a Timelord, with the fact being altered.
And I'm not sure what to think about Mr Pink. Yeah I know we haven't seen much of him, lol. There wasn't anything to like or not to like, really. So basically, I find myself with no opinion about his character yet. I'll wait and see...
Anyway... The Daleks... yeah, they exterminated, and we saw the lightning thingie... the effects were good, the atmosphere was good, and I guess that's what everybody needed to make them feel threatening again. Or at least that's what everyone's been clamouring for. Dunno... They were suitable, sure. And it was nicely done. The Daleks have never scared me though, whether new or classic ones lol. Then again, I have yet to find a monster that terrifies me, it's not the Daleks fault. :P I found Midnight to be a psychologically draining episode and the way they filmed the beginning of Terror of the Vervoids, with the angles and the mystery of what had escaped from the pods, gave me goosebumps... But all in all, nothing in this show has ever terrified me. I am terrified of horror films lol. I will never watch Occulus for instance, despite being curious about it... I found Poltergeist frightening... And I stay away from Steven King stuff coz just the thought of it terrifies me lol. But Doctor Who, nope.
We all have different things that trigger fear in us... Daleks electrifying people isn't one of mine. Personally, I find psychological threats or psychic attacks more terrifying and more effective than people being shot left and right. But that doesn't mean I didn't like them. I found the "good" Dalek more threatening than the ones who were invading the base however.
All in all, a good episode, with an interesting theme and setting. Too much shouting though, lol. I kept having to turn the sound up and down coz it was too loud at times and then we couldn't hear the next thing they said and had to turn it back up...
Oh, and I love the "yeah carer, she cares so I don't have to" line lol. :D
I gave it an 8/10.
@JustJordsss Clara herself wasn't a Dalek... Oswin Oswald was... An echo of Clara, another life in a way. I doubt she'd remember the lives of her echoes.

3 days, 22 hours ago on Into the Dalek Spoiler-Free Review
@They're all my favorite Doctor @Ottoman14 I don't know... it didn't shock me at all. If their primary target is the Doctor and he's the main threat, I'm guessing they had orders to stop him at all cost... so he's the one they'll go and exterminate first. The Galifreyans, mostly kids and parents, weren't as much of a threat and could be dealt with later... If that group managed to temporarily escape, they'd be caught again. To the Daleks it would make no difference, as they had a whole army destroying the city anyway. No one was going to escape them (of course, it didn't quite work out as they'd planned coz the Doctor is a slippery eel and hard to catch lol)
Taking the time to exterminate each and everyone one of those pple meant risking letting the Doctor escape again, so to me it was completely normal that they'd want to exterminate him first. It's simply a tactical decision. Dunno... that was my reasoning anyway.
Oh my, tough one... Very hard to decide... Why are you doing this to me??? lol :P :) Doctor-wise, Eleven's still my fave Doctor, but Twelve is not far behind... Yet, I think I need to see him way past his post regen confusion to decide how much I like his take on the Doctor. But he's definitely up there. Story-wise, I find it hard to compare them coz they're so different... Which is why I couldn't decide which episode I liked better, as I loved both and I found both worked very well, lol. So, after agonising over it, I went and looked at my list. :P The Eleventh Hour got a 10/10 and Deep Breath a 9/10, so The Eleventh Hour wins, but not by much, lol.
4 days, 12 hours ago on Face-Off: The Eleventh Hour vs Deep Breath
He has officially become my favourite villain. I think the actor did an awesome job portraying him! He was amazing and really nailed the part! I sure hope we see him again!
And seeing as the lady of the Nethersphere is going to be in the finale (unless it's her twin or something, lol), I'm thinking we might see him again at some point in that episode too... though, maybe if he does appear there, he might either turn Cyberman or be destroyed for real, so I sorta hope he doesn't appear in the finale coz then there's less chances of him making a return later on, lol.
Then again, anything is possible in Doctor Who, others have come back to life before... lol. ^^;

@Baker Street is heading Into the Dalek From the point of view of the Doctor, his last words were the ones he uttered just before regenerating in Time of the Doctor. From the point of view of Matt, it would depend on what scene he last filmed I guess lol. :D
@supermoff @TARDlSkey Perhaps the BBC would forward it if they were sent an email for him. Not sure... Or in a letter to his agent or something, if he has one, not sure how that works. :)

@usmandikkoladan The way she talks to Jenny, it seems she thought that regeneration started with the new body being young and then it went on growing old like human bodies do... she didn't expect the new regenerated body to be already old.
Plus he has a different personality - it takes time to adjust, especially if you have a personality that needs you to stay in control of your life and environment. She freaked out because suddenly things were not as she had expected. She didn't want him to change before he regenerated either.
She saw all the others Doctors in passing... they weren't a part of her life. She didn't become friends with them. Technically, her echoes met the other Doctors, they weren't her, she only saw the Doctors running by past her in the Doctor's time stream on Trenzalore. She met the War Doctor when he was old, but she didn't know him from the day he regenerated... and 10 was still young(ish). She had no first hand experience of the details of regeneration, of what happened when a Time Lord regenerates and the post regen confusion.

The half-faced man didn't transport the dinosaur to Victorian time, the Doctor did by accident while trying to escape after being swallowed but it.
Weird... this was posted 1 August but I'm only receiving the notification about it today lol. Anyway, a bit late for an answer, sorry lol, but it must've been filmed as they have wrapped up the series and should be getting ready to film the xmas special now. It must have been filmed in private locations.

There's no option for I don't know. Both scenarios keep hovering back and forth in my head and I can't decide lol.
Either way, I personally don't find it that controversial. The Doctor's killed before, so we know he is capable of it. I never had a problem with it before, I don't have a problem with it now either, lol. It might also come into play as he's asking himself if he's a good man later on...

@The 14th Doctor Yeah it's his personal wedding ring. He said in an interview that he didn't want to take it off during filming because, with such a long filming period, the risk of losing it was too high and losing it would hurt him. Maybe they'll fit it in the show, no idea. We'll see. ^^;

@KingOfTheInterWebs has Kidneys @MetamorphmagusWho @Regenerated Catterson I had no doubt that he was just leaving her there coz he had a better plan for getting her out, but then as time went by and he didn't come back, I started to worry a little, lol.
It felt right to me too. Changing personality, face, body, tastes, and feeling yourself change, plus it being a whole new cycle and a whopper of a regen, it must be a bit unsettling. He must have known that Clara might panic a bit... control freak Clara who likes to keep her life and her environment under control... And, at the time he phoned her, he was starting to feel the change and beginning to worry a little at the idea of what a whole new cycle might do to him in terms of transition. He wanted to try and make the transition a bit easier for both of them. That's the sort of stuff 11 would do.
And, as a bonus, it served as a message to those in the audience who had a harder time adjusting to the change too. "I'm changing, and I know you're finding it hard, but I really am still the same man." But I felt it worked really well, showing us how 12 vulnerable was at that point. It neatly tied everything together.
I loved 12's lines at the end, I felt it was a really powerful moment. And it triggered Clara's acceptance. It worked well for Clara. "I didn't listen in, it was me who phoned you. I'm the same man but it's like you don't see me anymore. Do you know how hard that is?"
Yeah a lot of people will be seeing it at the cinema. It's also the 1st doctor introduction episode to be aired in august... not everyone was home to watch it yet, some still being on holiday. I think the 1 week ratings will be a better indication.
9/10 - There's still too much racing around in my head to even think about reviewing it, lol. Episode was great... Loved the humour, loved the tone, loved the pace, loved the interactions, loved the dialogues, loved the acting, liked the plot... didn't care much for the new theme music lol. I find it too electronic, not orchestra-like enough lol. But I guess that's the point. They seem to have tried to make it more like classic themes.
