Small Talk : TARDIS Console Room

Recommended Posts


Watched it with our good friends here as soon as it was available & their kids were down for their afternoon naps. Always fun to watch it in a (slightly) larger group, with fellow fans.

We normally have a big viewing party for the season premieres, but the guy who usually hosts them was in England at the time, very excited about getting to watch it in England. I ended up watching very late as a former co-worker had a party that evening that I was semi-obligated to go to (but I did have fun).

Jenna Coleman will be playing Lydia Bennett Wickham on Death Comes to Pemberley, a two-part TV miniseries.  Part 1 will air on October 26th on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre (in the U.S.).

Wow ... resurrecting a dead thread ... 

 

Anyway ... I don't know about the rest of you ... but I am just a tad excited about the new season of Doctor Who ... sure, it's not what it was, but it's forward movement and I always like that, so in any case, I am looking forward to the new season.

 

Just thought I would throw that out there.  LOL

I started watching Doctor Who on Netflix.  I was watching the Christmas Day episode when I started thinking about what if Christian Kane had been the new doctor instead of David Tennant.  Would his hand have been evil?

I have a friend who has heard me time and again talk about Doctor Who, and she's finally intrigued enough to start. 

 

So, where should she start?  I don't want to send her back to the First Doctor and through fifty years, but I would like to like her to get the sense of who the Doctor is and why he does what he does. 

 

Thanks in advance for your ideas!

I would always recommend "Blink" to start with - if she doesn't like that, then Dr Who is simply not for her.

If she does, then I'd agree with Joe - go back to 2005 and start the modern era.

Aussies! A reminder, today is election day. Please remember to vote. You can find your local voting place at www.aec.gov.au . Funny thing, purely by coincidence I turned up wearing green trousers, shirt, and jacket. People probably thought they knew which way I was going to vote. But they'd be wrong.

And in awesome news, you know below the line on the big paper? You only have to fill out to slot 12 if you want, it doesn't have to be all the way to 300 any more!

I realize this is a bit of a bump, by I just ordered myself a Christmas gift from BBC Shop. It is a Time Lord Academy Varsity Jacket that I am stupid excited for.

Just thought everyone should know.

So, the jacket arrived. I had it shipped to my parents' because that's where I'll be for Christmas. 

My mother said she's going to write on the tag that it's from The Doctor. #I'mAnAdult

I'm just watching the Capaldi episodes on the Who Takeover.  I missed them and the Smith/Clara episodes originally because I moved out of an area where I could get them.

I just have this to say about Clara.   YUUUCKKKK

Has anyone seen the latest user terms for BBC ? Section 9

"If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BBC websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BBC service, the BBC may use your personal information to stop such behaviour. 16 Where the BBC reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the BBC may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour. 10. What if I am a user aged under 18?"

Thoughts about BBC essentially doxxing people for wrong think?

Not really, only that the Doctor has been around for a long time. He's accumulated friends and enemies all over the place. Rose and the Eccleston era was designed as a jumping on point. I say just watch all the new stuff. If you like it, then dip your toe in the classic era. But there's no point diving into that straight away. Some of it can be pretty offputting.

Thank you for the reply.

I hope you enjoy it! BTW, if anyone mentions Dalek chronology to you, ignore them. It's better for your sanity. :)

Two seasons down. I will miss Rose for sure.

So is it ever said...does the TARDIS know where anomalies are, or is The Doctor just lucky/unlucky?

One time, in 55+ years of the show, it was implied that the TARDIS deliberately takes the Doctor to where she feels he needs to go, rather than where he wants to go. You can read into that how you choose.

I've long felt that the Doctor is a trouble magnet adrenaline junkie.
