  1. > I almost forgot about the new Doctor Who season. Looking at the comments, it seems it's not that good.
    @commagray The first four episodes were pretty dull.
    Also packed with social commentary, which is painfully obvious because of the overall weak execution including the said commentary.
    But the fifth episode (the last one aired to date) was fun though. Pure fantasy, love it.
    The influence of the Classic Doctor Who is pretty obvious too, but… the contemporary popular Internet culture references are still there and as strong as ever.
    I was hoping they'll be gone with Stephen Moffat, but apparently not. Ugh, mediocre.
    I will still tune in for the sixth episode of !drwho :-). Have a Jelly Belly and allons-y!

  2. @moonman And I've been worried about the partially lost !drwho episodes.

  3. Read the # chapter on nuclear bombs to my son @rafael this weekend. He thinks most things in that book are dumb, but sat rapt for this one. So did I. It's less like "up goer 5" and more like how # describes the Last Great Time War, and utterly terrifying in its real-ity. !parenting

  4. @kat For some reason, it is one of the most memorable story arcs of !drwho for me.

  10. Something made me recall this advertisement today. According to Davison, he had to be in the middle because Pertwee detested Baker and they needed to be kept apart. #

  13. Come to think of it, some other "showrunner" driven series could usefully learn to occasionally relax the pacing from Better Call Saul. ** cough # cough **

  15. The only pinballl machine I was ever any good at: The weird Delgado/Ainley Master hybrid was a bit freaky. If you can find room for 7 Doctors you can at least have 2 Masters. #

  22. Quite enjoyed the # Christmas special, tho' that may have been due to the company of @tregeagle, #, & half of # at the pictures. Matt Lucas was not as Bonnie Langford as I feared, and Moffat put his sitcom muscles to good use.

  23. @tregeagle Oh. Don't overdo it on my account. # fatigue costs lives. If you need a disincentive Matt Lucas is the alleged comic relief again.

  27. Peter Davison's new autobiography sounds rather jolly. Tom Baker's autobiography will be hard to top, but I expect Peter knows as well as anybody what it's like trying to follow Tom. #

  29. Tho' interesting to see all the stuff from Power of the Daleks that Mark Gatiss shamelessly homaged 40-odd years later. #

  30. Power of the Daleks recon was about as painful as expected. Lots of lengthy pauses, where clearly lots of non-verbal actor-stuff was going on, lovingly "reconstructed" in the form of cardboard cutouts wobbling from side to side in silence for no apparent reason. #
