Should be about just right, since I have been watching the entire collection and am currently on season nine part two with Peter Capaldi ought to be able to get to the regeneration into the new doctor by that time.

BTW, all of next week is Torchwood and Dr Who marathon or binge watching with a 10 min interview with the 13th Dr somewhere. Check your TV guide for that. :beers: Cheers!

Nope, it's not! It's a fugly cousin of K. Can't say that K is fugly anymore. Really, this is one fugly monster and a rather disappointing beginning to the new season of Dr Who. The Woman who fell from the sky??? What happened to the Tardis??? Did it rebel against having a female Time Lord or just plain annoyed at all the regenerations taking place?

Hello... Anyway, stay tune. I think there's more that would explain where the 12th Lord regenerated. But for now, I'm not impressed... AT ALL!

 :sure:

The indignity!!! My K is not remotely fugly... I demand satisfaction sirrah... Swords or Pistols at dawn... Marquis of Queensbury rules...
Appointed seconds... K for Miss Universe...

Oops... 13th Doctor... Yes...
Sorry, got lost in the moment then...

Well, at long last the 13th Doctors first season has made it to this side of the pond and yes we bought it....

      there was also a bonus, a rework of the lost episode "Shada" containing animation for the missing parts with some rework of the existing material that I recall from the previous version so all in all it is looking quite good so far ... and yes we bought that as well ... looking forward to watching it.

Currently about half way through at the time of this post.

The Shada animation is turning out to be a great investment of the few dollars I had to spend to acquire, had discount coupons and so forth ...

I am liking the updates and animations inserted in the main story line.

      worth every penny I spent ...

Haven't got that far into the season to witness that trick ...

Thought you said you saw that the Tardis had re-decorated on its own. I think you had better go back and pay attention to the flipping and the tripping of the switches and levers along with the knobs on the console. LOL

About the only thing that disturbs me on my first run through of the season is the over abundance of "political correctness"

That's the problem which reach many series and movies now :shrug:  :sure:

Post by: Jherrith on March 09, 2019, 04:25:22 PM
Indeed a man pregnant is featured in one episode ... then we have the Rosa Park incident in detail  ... plus the religious overtone when it was split twixt the Muslim in Pakistan and the Hindu in India in yet another episode.
Title: Re: 13th Doctor
Post by: FrahHawk on March 09, 2019, 06:44:08 PM
Well for what it is worth, it's a very short season this time around. I keep hoping that maybe they will come back with something other than the resurrection of the Dr's arch enemy.
Title: Re: 13th Doctor
Post by: Jherrith on April 14, 2019, 10:51:03 AM
Would rather see the old arch enemies instead of all this political correctness, Dr. Who is for fun and escape from the paralyzing dull, boring, tedious and commonplace day to day.

Just my opinion mind you

Well, the Christmas special just made it to this side of the pond and at 50% off could not say no.

Slated to watch later on this evening and we shall see what we shall see.

Do like the blurb I saw on Facebook that the Judoon will be back next season so hopefully they will get back to "The Doctors" roots and drop all the political correctness and commentary on the state of the world.

Title: Re: 13th Doctor
Post by: Jherrith on May 25, 2019, 03:59:47 PM
Fun and games now, while browsing in the store I did wander by the British TV section and what happens but a woman standing there makes the comment of "wow 50% off all British TV" and then commented about Dr. Who and the next thing you know a 45 minute or longer conversation on all things "The Doctor" and boy howdy did she get the full dialog on my knowledge of the series and the actors and even some back story. She never got bored and continued to ask question and was interested in the answers ... that doesn't happen often to say the least.

Nonetheless that is when I saw that there was the Christmas special and yep 50% off so .... snag ... right in front of the lady I was talking to ... :tearlaugh:

She seemed to be in two minds of buying one, but I am hoping that with the info I gave her and reviews on the titles in the store that she might have picked up one ... I can hope ...

Title: Re: 13th Doctor
Post by: Jherrith on May 25, 2019, 04:07:27 PM
She genuinely was interested in the Dr. Who story line and her main question was does one have to watch them from the beginning or could one just start anywhere and still understand, follow and enjoy the episode.

Which yes one can .. so I think that was a selling point

Now this is classic, the Dalek shuts down all the Wi-fi, Internet and phones ... and the humans are in a panic what do we do ... uh have a conversation? Really,  you're kidding.

From the first regeneration from Bill Hartnell to Pat Troughton,  to now..... every regeneration goes through a "not as good as 'My' Doctor" thing. But within 2-4 episodes the new one becomes "My Doctor".WIth JOdie, it took about 1 1/2 episodes afore I said..... "Aye she's the doctor."Almost as long as Tom Baker.
With the  regen gone wrong bits introduced with Peter Davidson, it's been getting more  and more interesting to see how long the Doctor takes to remember himself.
Cheers
