Oh Mirabella. You should have known better than come here. You can only blame yourself. You know Who fans have no class.. Rolling Eyes

Hey Petty! I can't open my Saturday night servings? Some kind of cruel joke or something? Mad

Well, sometimes one comes up, or the other one, or none, or both - and they won't open. Tell you what, Petty, I'll sit on the page and give it time to load, okay? Then we'll see! I warn you though, my next post might very be on the Complaints Thread! Mad

From the way Tennant's voice goes up at the end of sentences into a squeak I could hazard a guess Mrs Figg!

Got through Episode 3, though from 10.53 on it was a radio play! Very interesting way of 'watching' Who, I must say. Very Happy {{{I think one of the girls had an orgasm, but I'm not sure! Shocked).

Now - episode 4...

So thoghts on the opening four episodes?

What about the Doctor in his younger days?
Spoiler:
Was he really going to bash that cavemans head in with a rock? I reckon so until he was caught. But what were they trying to tell the viewer about him by it? That he is not human? That he is ruthless at need? That he lacks compassion?- all things the Doctor would be accused of at some point by various people later in life. But was that the intention here?
And what of the first companions? Susan, Barbera and Ian? By modern standards the latter two would probaly be seen as too old for Who companions and too straight laced- I rather think however that it works.

I enjoyed them immensely, not always, but most often for the right reasons. Susan looks like an elf - or humanoid alien somehow. And the two teachers are great - very straight laced. I imagine Kafria for some reason. Very Happy The Doctor is particularly inept - which is kind of cool, really.

Getting used to the little by little story structure. I have to say I like the companions!

I like the dynamic with Susan, who can tell him off in the way only family do. It is nice to see that in contrast to recent companions.
I also enjoyed the bit of alpha male between the doc and Ian.

Not sure what to make of the doctor yet.

He seems very dismissive of others, set in his own ways, somewhat incompetant and yes somewhat ruthless.

Spoiler:
I have the feeling that the rock bit was to show that he was different from the companions. As yet it doesn't seemed to have been made overt that he is alien, not sure if at this point the writers were clear on that or not, so I think difference as opposed to something else. He does not seem a particularly relatable character. Although it is clear that he has a better way of thinking than the others

by the by - both links worked fine for me Question

Spot on about the Doctor, Kaf. About everything actually --- did I just say that? Shocked

I'm looking forward to Saturday night. Great idea, Petty. Very Happy I'm really curious about that "radiation" bizo. Sounds scary. affraid

I just worked out what do with the Spoiler thing! cheers {{{Gawd I'm a dunce, Kaf. Rolling Eyes But please don't tell anyone you know! It can be our little secret, okay?}}} {{{Oh yeah --- thanks Eldo, as usual. Very Happy }}}



Spoiler:
Petty is a big dork. Oooh this is fun.

I do indeed Orwell and here you go.

Interesting ones this as it will lead into the twisted world of Who canon- if there was any which the BBC deny- but thats for a later discussion.
First enjoy "The Dead Planet" and "Survivors".- oh and dont be confused by the Daleks title at the start- classic Who each individual episode had a name but episodes also fell into story arcs which also had an overall name - in this case The Daleks.

Know what I'll be doing later when my Missus runs out of things for me to do outside in the garden... Very Happy

(Women! Rolling Eyes You know, she expects me to pull my weight around the place, and not stay in Forumshire day and night. I mean, what if I miss something important? I said, "But I'm on holidays." Then she says, "Well, a woman with two kids who has a full time job too is still on duty day and night, 24/7. Oh gawd. It's true, but why do I have to hear it all the time and be made to feel guilty so that I do stuff? I'm a guy! Women have been doing mostly everything at home since Eve sinned and brought Eru's wrath down on Womankind. It's not like their fate wasn't deserved. And, anyway, I'm not here 24/7, just during my waking hours! Women! Rolling Eyes )
