Re: Third Source King Election

I may be wrong, but I seem to recall at least one episode of "The Crusaders" having been recovered from Nieuw Zeeland... :) You're right, but I wasn't involved. There are about 4 million other Kiwis knocking around the place, it may have been some of them. Nevertheless "I'm from Auckland" doesn't w...

Re: Third Source King Election

I am somewhat surprised to be on the list, especially as a King. (And as a source...I know nothing, I'm from Auckland...) Mind you, I always try to believe six impossible things before breakfast. http://nevalalee.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/red-queen1.jpg I may be wrong, but I seem to recall at lea...

Re: Rate "The Girl Who Died"

Hhhmmm. ...vikings with horns? Electric eels in viking land? Visible electricity on wires? Doctor raising the dead? That was bad. Since when did the doctor decide that his face looks like when he regenerates? Capaldi was good. Basic story idea was good. Just something is wrong. That isn't a new ide...

Re: Series 9 Ratings Thread

Is this a desperate attempt by the BBC to massage the ratings figures? http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2015/09/unscheduled-dw-repeat-25091510008.html No, because it won't be counted towards the final ratings of the first 2 episodes. As said above though, episode 2 is up against the rugby so could be b...

Re: Rate "The Magician's Apprentice"

That one solidly mangaged WORST SCRIPT EVER. By far. No discernible story line, not the tiniest sense of continuity whatsoever, just some shiny effects and mindblowingly bad acting.

Re: Series 9 - 2015

Some BBC press blurb for the upcoming new series. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is joined by Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for time travel on a cinematic scale. Having the time of their lives, the pair meet new and old monsters, and go on a journey that takes them to deadly alien planets, creepy underw...

Re: Series 9 - 2015

Yes "old man" can be used as a term for your father, I often refer to dad as "my old man" or even "the old man", but it more likely is used more to describe the fact that he is an old man. As I've mentioned already, I'm not a native speaker, but judging by http://www.thefreedictionary.com/old+man ,...

Re: Series 9 - 2015

Ah I see, a few points. 1. I don't believe it's normally possible that Time Lords change sex during regeneration, but it is possible under limited circumstances, you'll find my musings elsewhere on this forum. That said Moffat has unfortunately imbraced the idea that it's no big thing. 2. The Docto...

Re: Series 9 - 2015

"What took you so long, old man?" Unlikely, and I hate your idea that Susan is the daughter of River, not to mention she can't be as River isn't the Doctor's daughter. He'd only have had to have met her once before for that familiarity to arise. ...okay, maybe I should have used a different way to ...

Would that be Susan (after a regeneration, which changed her personality, including stopping her from calling The Doctor "Grandfather"), Susan's mom, River (who somehow made it out of the dead-end street-situation that getting killed by the Vashta Nerada would put ...

Well, I thought it was at least better than the preceding series, but then again, I am a little odd... Silightly too many dream-in-dream-in-dream-in-dream-in-(etc.) for my personal taste though.
