"Learned their dialogue. And william harlow. Waylon go for it. The only drawback to that is that the biggest. Gimmick of the story is the extant conceit. The doctor gradually speech krejci getting in sync with the villain the possessed character and expecting william how to to get that syllable. Perfect is a bit of a tall order so this is not moving to one other specific areas coming up with absolute dream team so i would have dougie. Campbell directs it. I'm just because i though he's often what we think was best was. He's big gimmick in the early years of making big expensive space operas look more expensive than say rich mountain dew but on the other hand lifted the rate of graham hopper. You know wasn't grim harbor but at least a wing graham harper. Was you know somebody who is famous for action. And then when he got the chance to do smaller scale stories later on. Show that you just as good with axes and an mood and atmosphere. So yeah i'd give with the chance to show the string to his bow. I would interesting to me i would. I would keep david trout in the same the same party. Even though he's owning twinsies at this point and i would transplant as the doctor. Any other doctor who could pull it off another fast-talking docs who's very precise without get paid davison. And i think it would show the world these much better accidental thinki- is because they just wandered on with his floppy hair and played himself. And i think it would show. Yeah his daughter. Never really go to chance to do any staff or any over possession and stuff ready. So i think that would have done him some good. So that's is a big enough team twenty to change anyone else. I i have to say paul that you've you've saved the best tool last their own particularly liked the idea of recording in line growth. I think that was a suitable to end. How many hundreds of years have we risk. We peaked close to five or six. I think at one point four to five or but in fairness to the mall. Yes trying to watch it on telly. Snaps with the audio keeping halting must've been pretty enervating. So look if you have been listening to us live and you've sold it on for more than an hour with that offer. Commiserations i think is the only thing we can say to you but but look thanks for that and we hope that we'll be able to construct from our own individual recordings at least in audio version the experience which is no less enervating least will be more complete and we. We've i'd like to say we've enjoyed doing. This certainly has been different. I if we're ever to try again after find different medium has actually expect you know. You'll have to to fourteen point.

"On something here. Even though we haven't because i crow crow into something else in what did. I do like roebuck. Clawbacks into three dumpsters. they yeah. Resolution is an actual christmas specialists the last episode season. But it's hived often shown at christmas. Accept his new year. Three doctors is famously. The story that feels like it should be a special and isn't a special is just the first part of season. But if they'd just waited a few months everyone would have been filled if administered especially loved it moaned about the about the in sense. Three dollars gets away. it doesn't it. It gets away with it because it's got the the unit family and the regulars are always very well written by baker mountain and at what was going to say omegas the heart the realism america's plight for a story about where the not just the big plot twist for the emotional thrust of the story. Emotional crux of the story is because despair. Finding outfit he no longer exists because realized with with a man in a fancy dress. Take his hat off. Often there's no head there that could go either way. Couldn't it could be ludicrous. But i think he's done for a nicely and despite students phones best efforts over oversell the moment i think that's i think that's the point to hindus all around. It's quite clever science fiction idea. I i saw when i was ten and i feel on us. I wasn't expecting that and it's not always that often get doctor who is not really as a show. The often surprises you as many qualities. So yes i think. It's almost the model of what you'd want from a joyous anniversary special but as i said last time mr ellison dr tyler are not good enough guest characters to deserve the amount of time they should have been bigger juicier and larger. And i'm sorry. I always say that bulb and dave if you're out there listening but you yeah you get there eventually resolution. Yeah i remember enjoying that quite a lot more as a story. that's enjoy mostly a puffer. Fueled moments that. Take me out of it. The at some things surprised seeing something that you haven't seen before and that's not easy to do the daleks it. A kind of thought had enough of seen him outside their cases. I saw the mute. Because i realize what was important so reestablished the effect that they were one in new. Who's as why. We saw a lot of them outside their machines but some after dark sec when did not prove the success that it was obviously supposed to be kind of hoped would never forgotten that route again. But this one. Yeah and i think ever since kitty watching resurrection the daleks where the blown up i push when i have a bloody window explodes because everywhere and yet this the mutant survived that crawls back up the wall hides in them is in the shadows pretending to be a. Kansas jumps up people's throats. That's the first time i've had any idea they could that resilient and it gives a good a underappreciated points in that is full of full of sensation sometimes. Just the sake of sanitation. And then it's probably up there with that having clinging to her at fresh meats back and mentally controlling her is not something we've seen before but it fits in with andrea. These things are powerful. Don't try to have its cake and eat it. Sometimes we are told. They are nothing pitiful creatures outside their armor. And that's all that's all they are. They're nothing without their armor but which is the works psychological level in tons of doctor. Has i think been telling. Them may works in the boat..

"Paul cooker said Moonbase is a terrible story said by fans for one quotable line some corners of the universe. Yeah, it's flat line and that the story saved by a speech. There is a link Story number two lines and quotes rather than the story itself not wrong not wrong. That's what I was thinking but I wanted to give them all and the eight of us another there's another good good the doctor gets another powerful speech and to the side as well. There's a lot of it about at the time something about decided to encourage him. To get all or waiting philosophical of us. Yeah, super super the Solomons that silly story. Isn't it? Isn't it off? What did it is a silly story and yet I still enjoy it. But but yeah, I mean, it's this objectively there's all sorts of reasons why I should hate it and yet I still love it. Yeah. Eventually Bailey's going on the chat thing whether it was the milk of the queen bat of androzani major. Damn it. I think it gave us that so now if if my companion is Gravely injured, she's she's on her own right? So dark, you want some quick-fire round wage. You're going to give you a minute on this and no I think I think isn't it. I don't know. It's me Wrecking up for Paul. Yes, some don't get me wrong this time. I know you think increased attention Oh, no just the production code or I'll give you these but rich is our first on the classic Who storage box, okay. Well, well you take over when when when will do that. All right, so I'm going to give you the numbers. Yeah, the first one is storing 111 megawatt dead. And then it's 201 midnight. Still make golf please and then over to Paul 4 megawatts and midnight all that would be with me thinking time. I I remember very clearly watching the episode volition V. I also very clear to remember watching all four episodes of Full Circle month. For some unaccountable reason I have absolutely no memory whatsoever of anything happening in between those two and I can only conclude that I must have randomly failed to watch make laws for some reason. So all I can tell you is that it's got an alien in it that looks like a cactus and at some point turned into Tom Baker wage because there's a waxwork of him and then also it was directed by Terence Dudley and the only reason I know that is because he Turbeville message on something here a few episodes back. So there you go. Paul you can tell us about it properly there now, I can't how could remember I researched it? We did a we did a very in-depth podcast on hold of season 18 and off the strangest thing is that all three participants. That was Tim myself and And yeah and Matthew we tried pretending I can't remember his name is very cruel. I'm a he's not watching we all won. The oddest thing was that we all came to the conclusion that megaswitch the weakest or worst or generally our least favorite story of the Season which we all went into it assuming it would be I went into it assuming it would be because I hadn't seen it since wage until last year. I haven't seen her since the time. I think.

"The moon base this really reason why. The production code for the Moonbase always flashes up for me is H H isn't it a bit wobbly on production codes, but the Moonbase Morris bearing home. I have a difficult relationship with the moon base. Really I'm delighted to have it have the two episodes that we have. But it marks a retreat into silly science and silliness that that some of season four especially represents. So we've come from the underwater Menace where there's some silly signs isn't there's a silly science demonstration about a little pots which explodes demonstrating what happens if you drain away the c or whatever it is and then the Moonbase they have this 21st 22nd century on the moon and the day is saved by a tray which somehow hermetically seals the Dome and saves everyone's life and the plots line with the Cybermen only randomly picking off people in the moon base by poisoning the sugar and therefore anyone who has sugar in the coughing. is vulnerable so watching it as a grown-up, which I allegedly am. I don't get on with the lazy storytelling and the dumbing-down for children because they shouldn't be dumbed down for children. It should be it should give children something to Aspire to understanding rather than going down to their level and we have the whole poly cocktail thing as well. And that was more of the same. However, it's Cybermen on the moon. Which is quite powerful. And you've got Trenton being city, which is lovely and that's the Moonbase Morris Barry conducting from his music stand. What was the other one Flatline? Flatline rigsy. Yeah I thought that was a really really really good premise for a story. I thought it was excellent. And I think dr. Like stories tend to be better by virtue of their being less vote this a big theme but being less less focused on what is going on in the Tardis with the Companions and I thought it was pretty good. I remember being.

I'm going to stop looking at it, but actually my missing episode discovering credentials. Sorry another pair off. Yes spreadsheet. And the one the hand of fear. Oh, yeah and paired with the girl who waited. I think you might have had practice run of this. Well the Honda fear so I I think it's it's probably known by by some people. I used to work in the nuclear industry when I was when I was alive. In fact, I as a student I climbed inside the pressure vessel of Hisham to one of this reacts. I forget which one and with a couple been sort of metal rod leaked out lots of bits of foreign material between the boiler pipes in that reactor before they'd had the fuel loaded. So I mean, it was relatively young man almost felt like at all while I was doing it, but there was no danger at least from radiation. So I've always been a little bit dead. Worried about Bob Baker and Dave Martin's grasp on radiation and what might happen if there were some kind of you know explosion or radioactive leak or something similar. It seems to be slightly less deadly in in in the hand of fear than you know one might imagine in real life. But with that being said, it's it it's a nice story. I mean, it's Sarah Jane's Last I was traumatized I would say as a as a young boy off at about 8 or something like that at the loss of Sarah Jane and and the per Entry Way of which he's Thrust out of the TARDIS, but this is both be lightning round..

"And thus watchable in televisual terms in herself. But in terms of knew who don't think they're any weaker less stimulating companions because all the others have been so much larger than life. I'm not give us your page to to Martha venting. She's fine. I find her a little bit cornball sometimes. Dr. I'm bringing you back to Earth. I found that a little bit corny, but I don't think I don't think there's anything wrong with having a not larger-than-life character wage in and not dwelling too much on the companions themselves because that allows the stories to breathe and it just so happens where we have the most muted character in Martha who is absolutely the fine, but it just so happens when we have the least concentration on the companion. In a season or a season Arc or a story, you know that we happen to have in my opinion. What is the best season of Doctor Who and for me that is something I'm Flexin on a lot especially at the moment with Seasons 11:00 and 12 where we have lots of noise and lots of foam what the companions are going through age. The the it's just a lot of screen time that is is is left to trying to somehow dip into the companions lives and draw parallels with what a young audience might be watching without conclusion like the dyspraxia and the depression and all of that and as a subsequent effect of that the stories themselves are truncated and less dramatic and the stories are sacrificed in order to try and put lights on the companions. So my point about Martha is it's absolutely fine job. She's perfectly fine. She's perfectly well played some of it's a little bit calm Ball but not having Rose and not having center of attention Donna and not having the focus being on the companion art allows for better storytelling and that is why I like Martha. Okay. Oh, yeah. I don't know. I liked her in-home. The Cybermen to parts were the Daleks Cybermen thing at the end of the previous season when she was playing the cousin or something and I just thought that she would choose choose a good good enough actress, but the didn't like the particular part that they took created for in this in and the whole kind of you know, unrequited love with the doctor said, I don't know whenever people ask me why I'm not a key term after they always asked they'll say, oh, is it the unrequited love thing with the doctor? Is it that because I I guess that is the thing that most people at least Kenalog That and I say no. No, it's not that good. That's why it's like the time Warrior and the unquiet dead. I think you might have watched both of those. Don't come at me with you..

"I think they certainly it was certainly not the worst story in the key to Time season. Although actually, you know a season I seem to recall quite enjoy there was a season that I got fed up with with dog and it wasn't that one. It was following. What although I said that I did watch this. I did watch city of death and indeed the one of the dialects it home. So it was really the only there after that but for some reason my attention got pulled away wants to be admitted it down to him. You're going to you're going to hide out which stories he didn't see and that was basically it but never had any human human nature. So I never read the book after so I'm gonna have to say that so it's like I'm not going to be able to give you some some very finely argued. Reference if the two two different texts, so I only have only the saw the the TV version but I liked it well enough I thought I thought it's interesting idea that off the doctor becomes a human and and falls in love and and then eventually has to give all that up. It's a little bit. All in the ending the doctor becomes very vindictive and you know, he was he was trying to give him a chance. He said but now that now that they've overstepped the mark That's it. They've really hurt it off which seems I suppose it's some more in tune with the character of of tenants Doctrine in the the latest part part of the area, but it seems a little bit out of step in this life Series 3 to me. But yeah all in all first world war setting creepy scarecrows. So there's still a link but the link between the two is owned now when you ever seen both of them once and right and you're not allowed to you that link again and they're both adaptations of a book, I mean lanzerotti same page about anything to it. This is such a thing as a an anti link. I mean you point out that when the interesting things about human nature is the doctors complete lack of wage. Function with the balance I get a right good come up. And so the end of it. Where is it and retire Grendel famous doesn't die. Don't get locked up. He just jumps the battlements and off into the sunset suit box has moustache to another day. This was a fan of fish.

Yes, Tara all of his plots end up with the body walking off into the Sunset Lounge except the ones that don't kind of forgotten that if you've discussed it in-depth on something here in 13 cast I probably wasn't on those episodes because I was always thought is always a way of washing my hair or something whenever you want to use call upon the disgusting. The latest series is such a shame. I'm very disappointed by your apparent apathy that to parts are rigid. I think my favorite new Whose story Well, it's certainly my favorite new Who season and that two-parter..

"The classic series one from the new and each of us are then take it in turns to discuss those stories picked at random and try and find a spurious link between them. And while we're doing that the others will get the opportunity to pass comment and possibly drop in the on odd anecdote of their own home just have an hour. We were a little bit less than that now, but we hope to get around about three or four times. So I hope that all makes sense and I guess without further ado. I see because naturally mostly taken the opportunity to be to join the general theme of the evening and be able to go first Richard. I'll give you one month that Goldman right Richard and you discourse for a number of minutes on the caves of androzani. Yes, and it's knew who counterpart Paramount at the end of the world. Well one of those one of those stories, I know rather better than the other I suppose that the the key thing about caves risoni was the first time around a missed episode 2 and I was absolutely frustrated about that. It was a Friday night and I happened to be watching Norman Wisdom. And you know, I'm wasting film on the Telly we watching as a family and I quite enjoyed it and then round about half-past seven when it occurred to me that I also been watching Doctor Who and that I missed it and not only had a missed it but Having recorded and that was it gone forever is a bit miffed. I mean deficit to perhaps not the key one, but nonetheless, you know, not not really one that you did want to miss either off. So for many years I had episodes one three and four, which I watched almost endlessly on on video without the event that benefit episode to I think I've probably still only watched it a couple of times so I can't tell you very much about that one.

"Patrick Rowden the second doctor. Initially I was just going to talk about the faceless ones. An animated episode that was created using the soundtrack from the original nineteen sixties. Faceless ones episode. That episode is one of the missing episodes of doctor who the second doctor has the most missing episodes BBC in the sixties decided that most of its archives. Were probably not going to be interesting to people. So they would wipe episodes and reuse the tapes. Over the years they have been able to find some episodes that had been shipped to different studios recently. I think it was in the Middle East. They found a bunch of episodes and they're able to take the soundtracks that fans recorded for years and recent them up and use that in the episodes they clean them up they remix them a lot of these episodes. They haven't been able to find it all. And they've taken the time to animate and create whole episodes out of either parts of episodes or in the case of the faceless ones and the terror they animate the entire thing they also did for power of the DALEKS which is very important episode. That's the second doctor's first episode and I have been kind of enraptured watching these animated episodes they've also done a couple of episodes where they have only animated a few episodes that were missing like moon base which I also very much enjoyed. I haven't spent as much time with the second doctor as some of the other doctors mostly because he has a lot of missing episodes and there was kind of a carryover between episodes back. In the day you wouldn't necessarily cleanly end one story and then start another one the end of the faceless ones for instance. The hardest is missing Ben and polly to the doctor's companions at the time. Decide what this is. They're they're gonNA just go on their way and they leave the doctor. Jamie and the Doctor. Jamie go looking for the Tartus. So it continues directly on into the next episode evil of the dollar which is another missing episode fingers crossed that after fury of the deep evil of the daleks is the next episode that they animate. I really excited because there isn't an entire season of Patrick Troughton as the doctor but if they do evil of the Daleks I think that they would be able to put on a Nice Blu Ray box set containing an entire season of the second time. Patrick Troughton had a really rough job. His doctor who was a phenomenal success with William Hartnell in the title role as the doctor. Taking over from William Hartnell meant that Patrick. Troughton had to somehow take a character that people had gotten to in love and put a new spin on it and make it his own with the highest viewership figures of any show in Britain at the time. The show is getting famous from movies. Starring Peter Cushing. So that was like you know what we can do this. It doesn't have to be William Hartnell. Necessarily he's kind of thought of as the first doctor that has the regeneration power and it adds a mythos to the show and so he's bringing in a huge chunk of what's become classic doctor who mythos with him and watching him do that is very very cool and being able to watch power of the DALEKS his first episode cement after watching some William Hartnell stuff and they're very very different actors and what they bring to. The rule is so different. And you would think that maybe audiences would bulk but at the time. I think that Patrick Troughton was able to carry the show. Different Way Than William. Hartnell was his relationship with one of his stalwart companions. Jamie you can tell the really enjoyed working together. I think the audience could tell that they very much enjoyed working together and that I think really helped the show move forward now. Without Patrick Troughton there would not be doctor. Who now if that hadn't happened if they'd have just said you know what? We got some series. We're done bills not feeling. Well we gotta we gotta pack it up. Which could have happened. He could have very easily been just a hey. We had a good run packing it up but instead they they went on a limb and they tried Patrick Troughton and worked anomaly and going back to his episodes. Now and being able to view them with new eyes and have more of a continuity between episodes. It's really cool. I highly highly recommend checking out the animated episodes and more of Patrick Trout and stuff I've watched faceless ones Mac patera moon base and tomb of the Cyberman to government is one of the few intact episode and it is thought of as classic and I can see why I mean the obvious racism aside. I will not say that. These episodes are perfect but the obvious racism aside to move. The CYBERMAN is super cool. Episode. It's really fun to watch. The terror is also really cool and knowing that what happens to the macro in gridlock the tenth doctor episode. It's kind of cool to see a very different side of the macro in that. There's a lot of cyberman episodes with the second doctor. I'm right now watching the tele snap reconstruction of Wheelin space. Where one of my favorite doctor who companions Zoe is introduced so? I'm just really excited that they're doing this project. I'm really excited to rediscover the second doctor for myself. He has the most missing episodes. There's going to be a release of fury from the deep either late this year or early next year and I'm really excited about it. I was a little disappointed that the wheel in space was a tele snap reconstruction and not a full animation. I had been misled online. That there was a full animation of wheel in space that was exclusive to Brit box. That's not the case. It's a tele snap reconstruction so it's basically like listening to a radio play and having some pictures from the episode up which is pretty cool. I'm glad I get to experience. The episode and there is an abridged version of the first episode of wheel and space. That's been animated and I'll check that out. The second factor is is well worth your time to look at you can see elements borrowed by other actors playing the Doctor Matt Smith. I think you can see a lot of Smith's eleventh doctor in the second doctor and I think you can also see things that capote borrowed from the second doctor. I'm also watching Peter. Cappelli suffered looking for attributes that other actors brought to the role that I believe. Peter Cappelli purposely brought out. And I'm glad that I rediscovered the second doctor so that I can look for those attributes a little bit more again. It's not that I haven't watched everything the second actors in it's just that these episodes I've never seen before because they were lost. They weren't available so this is the first time I'm seeing some of them and it's really cool and it's really cool to have his era kind of restored I'll talk probably more about faceless ones or macro terror future episode but I just wanted to say how enraptured. Am with the second Doctor Right now. And how much fun? I'm having watching this stuff in rediscovering stuff because again he had probably the hardest job of any doctor isolation times. I've been reading some articles about covert time and how physical distancing has been causing people to feel really isolated. Some experts thought the term social distancing was not the correct term to use. The term should have been physical distancing because what we really need to do is stay physically distant from people not socially win traumatic events happen humans as a group tend to cluster together and comfort one another. But that's exactly what can't do in cove at times at least not physically. I've been reading more about how isolation can trigger people who feel anxious and epithets. I'm definitely more on. The epithet excited the anxious side. It's really interesting to see how many studies have been done about isolation people were saying that it can be as harmful as high blood pressure in some cases at just a lot of stress into our lives. And we can feel lot of loneliness especially when you don't have someone to share your life with. It's important right. Now that we go out of our way to comfort others to reach out to people to take comfort in our small circle of people that we have in our lives and take time for ourselves. We're not likely to live through something like this again. And it's important right now to reflect on who we want to be at this time and we WANNA help and who can help us so I just encourage you to give someone that phone. Call that. Maybe you haven't talked awhile. Try Zoom chat or even just send an email but reaching out is really important. Not just for yourself to try to ward off some of the things eighty and some of that apathy but also for the people that you're reaching out to one article said that just reaching out to someone and being able to say to yourself at least someone is thinking about me is a big deal so I would encourage everybody take some time to think about someone. You haven't reached out to a while. Just reach out to him in some way phone. Call email anything. You can't fill the notebook so in nineteen ninety-three they found a really cool deep space. Nine notebook with graph paper in it and as of Sunday may third. I filled that notebook with notes. About who positive and was fun to look back through it and see the notes that I have starting with episode one all the way to episode fifty one and it was just fun to read through it and see how my mission has changed a bit and to see how many episodes of watched and taking notes on to see how many of watched and take notes on that. I haven't gotten a chance to talk about yet. How many ideas that I've have also haven't gotten to do yet and it just reinvigorated me and just reminded me that. I have places that I want to take this podcast and I have People WanNA talk people. I want to find out more about and find out about the things they love and find out about what those things bring their life and so it was just really exciting. And I don't finish notebooks very much. I by many many many notebooks. The fact that this one is twenty seven years old and I just filled. It tells you about my propensity for not filling up notebooks. When I filled a notebook I had to choose which empty notebook I wanted to be my who positive notebook next and I was like a choose the blue one do I choose one or a green one. I went with the orange. One was exciting. It was exciting to feel like I had used this notebook for something that means something to me. It was exciting to see that I was able to fill an entire booklet of graph paper with notes. That are mostly about this podcast. I had a lot of fun taking these notes and just looking back like the handwriting in the notes I took. It's just nice to see how excited I was about. How excited I am about it and I look forward to do in this podcast every time I sit down and do it. It's just it's a fun thing to do. I hope to fill another notebook with notes. Just on this podcast. It's all for episode fifty two next time I'll talk about faceless ones and macro tear and dive back into my twelve doctor. Watch I've got interviews on the Reisen and lots of places left to go. I hope to see you soon. Thank you very much for listening.

"He talked about how he can regenerate and sure it could've been a bluff. You could easily read that as always buffing Cyberman but it just it really interesting to see Stephen Moffatt. Come up with this idea and fit it in so well very cool very much enjoyed the doctor but then day of the doctor. I was so excited watching it. It's just a fun ride. I think it's probably the greatest multiple doctor episode. And I think part of that is because of the introduction of the war. Doctor like you get to know another side of the character and you get to see a kind of a classic. Ish Dr Interact with two of a little bit. More childish may be new doctors and you can see it get set up kind of for the doctor to forgive himself for the doctor to become a Peterka pulverize twelve doctor. And even after that I think inside this it almost feels like Jodi. Whitaker's doctor is kind of set up to be a counterpoint to Peterka police twelfth doctors so I just feel like there's so much set up in Dave the doctor and I was just so excited to watch again. It's just such a fun ride so much great stuff in there. Billie Piper in there Playing bad wolf or rose. Tyler was excellent. The Red Button Line Wiser never red button was also just so many great lines. The interfaces hot will do my best but between girl in a box the story of your life. Many great lines design on seeing the guns again was amazing Just the glimpses of the doctors the pass at the very end of the episode. When they're saving gala Frei was awesome and the setting up the doctor not being able to remember that he's saved. Gal afraid that the war doctor was able to reclaim the name of the doctor. So that the ninth doctor would definitely call himself the doctor because that feeling like hey. I've done what I needed to do. As the war doctor I can reclaim the name. So tiny weeny stuff. The John Hurt was so great as the war doctor. If you haven't listened to the big finish war doctor stories. They would be a great place to really jump into the big finish up at really enjoyed the war doctor stuff because I got to see more of that character. More of John hurt as the doctor see how they navigate around him not wanting to be called. The doctor was the it was it was great. I enjoyed that and I mean they showed us what the time was like and I always thought from the beginning when they introduced the time or that it would be a bad idea for them to show us the time war because it was better is a mystery and apply still think there's a lot of mystery left in the time more showing us the time war. I thought was brilliant and showing us that the time war wasn't some battle that you couldn't understand in unless you were a time. Lord like they had been beaten down through it so much that it would look like just a regular boots on the ground war that anyone could understand and I thought that was really cool to like. It's not some few radical thing that you couldn't wrap your mind around as a human. I enjoy the glimpse of the tire more. I loved that the war doctor stories in the war master stories came out of this one of the things that I just loved about. This episode was epic feeling of it and the way they were able to make epic and tie up so many things at the same time. It was just boggling that it was such a good roller coaster ride and yet there's so many details in there that are just so much fun river songs shoes in the Black Archive The doctor never liking what the next doctor chooses for their Tartus Interior. Just so much fun so many threads wrapped up and even the I don't want to go at the end. I enjoy that like giving that line from the tenth doctor. More Nuance and galaxy falls. No more I'm very excited because in the future big finish is having an eighth doctor. Venture called stranded that evidently features the curator which is going to be interested to see because I one of those people that think sell. The curator should never be answered. You should never know how curator got to be there but at the same time they handle the time more so well. I'm excited to see what they come up with curator but Dane doctor is probably a great episode jumping on. It's so cinematic seeing it on the big screen it just made it feel like a brand new thing. A brand new phase for doctor who it is face for doctor who enjoyed the doctor getting a chance to let go of some of the angst he'd been hanging onto a great stuff day of Dr one of my favorite episodes. Like if I'm ever feeling down. I know that I can reach for day of the doctor. Jack can watch it again. I seen it so many times. It's the episode of New that I've seen the most definitely in by far. I'm willing to watch it with anyone at any time though because I enjoyed it so very much. I just beamed watching the episode the whole time. I just put a smile on my face rate from those opening credits right to sing the the coal hill sign that and I I am and signed right to the very end I just I. It was an adventure and it was so much fun. I Hope Everybody enjoys the fiftieth anniversary as much as I did. If you haven't seen it very much recommended you can get it on Ebay and Amazon prime. I know I think it's Britain. Box also met one hundred percent. Sure but there's so much setup so much paid off it's it's really it's really a great thing I mean. It almost feels like an end to Stephen. Moffatt air but at the same time is not we still get to enjoy the twelfth doctor right after a record this? I'm going to watch the last episode of the eleventh doctor's tenure and I might go right in. The doctor is the thing. I'm excited about talking about next. Is those little moments of the twelfth doctors when you get to see other versions of the doctor shine through. So that's what I'm excited about next. That's probably one of the things I'm GonNa talk about next time. I'm also going to have guests. Got Two interviews setup in the not too distant future and soon as social distancing is over half people over we're GONNA we're gonNA talk about the stuff. We love why we love it and what it adds to our life. That's all through this episode. I've been Andy. This has been. Who Positive thank you very much listening..

"Welcome to the podcast we learn everything you need to know about the celebrities don't I'm bobby finger I'm Lindsey Weber and this is a long long mom is in La okay she's fry she and I applaud her plantation on the royal situation but please don't brought to garner sympathy from us you knew what you were doing with William and kate they are grooming because he's going to be the king and she's going to be the queen and the kids are going to be the feels like that Harry a Meghan have nothing to lose by moving to America the why not I mean move to America and live part time in Africa like you want to do you have to still kingland the thinking about moving to America as you real kicking the royal out of your life I mean I like them I really do like them but harbor there's something about her you know what I'm saying but Megan marlow nobody feels sorry for you you knew what you were signing up for girl it all Wendy knows is that one time Meghan Markle auditioned for Wendy like that all that went and then she went on that suitcase TV show the there she auditioned for Wendy then she got engaged like the Wendy thing happened she claims that they called her back to get on the show and she was already engaged to Harry yes I believe Wendy about that time line so let's move on before when the also told her to move into a hut China when I've never been so I don't know also is responsible for Dula being a word that we use let's move on is that really what do you think the difference that she's talking about Kashani you said I think she was she meant that there's a difference between the tabloids do you think it's that as simple as Americans loved the royals like as like we love you more than the Brits the Brits the Brits like we hate you kind of like we hit you or do you think like do you think there's something racial they're like is it because the British tabloids are a little more racist or openly racist then maybe the American tabloids are I'm not even sure if that's true I think it's just the way that they write about celebrities and royals in particular is very cruel like it is like openly cruel as opposed to American tablets which I think skirt around the issue or maybe they like print an embarrassing picture or whatever but they don't like openly mock celebrities in that same way or maybe they do I was just watching the Amy Wayne has documentary and she got a lot of shift from American tabloids tres the Daily Mail does talk about American celebrities like it's weird to just read the daily email 'cause then that's from that's all from there kind of meaner perspective or whatever or absurdist tabloids I think tabloids br I think that there is definitely the friends and style I do not think that it is fair to say that American tabloids are gentler than British Shaab Lloyd's that is just simply not true when you think about like particularly the WHO economy and how we write about people who are literally not doing anything except for existing I you know I also so the thing about this I think that gives me a lot of pause is just how we are all engaging in how we're all complicit in that Konami right turn out the podcast that you're like I think I think about it a lot like the reason that I the reason that I appreciate who weekly so much is because I felt like among many directs that you do is you're actually teaching media literacy project it's truly like hi what does it mean that these get written about the volume that they're getting rid of it we're I'm I you know I'm like who the Fuck Reinhardt like why do I know why is your name like in my consciousness and is that you are like doing you know like Lily only reason I'm talking about is because on the radio APP I got you but you know where I'm just like who and it's not like an indictment of who the people are just like why do we attention why do we give this kind of attention to people that we do and but at the same time like there are a lot of celebrities who are celebrities that are like way more famous ask like bigger than I would say even Meghan markle that have successfully not been people that are talked about in the press right and I think that some of it is definitely a combination of like what kind of manipulation is your publicist doing to keep your name out of there how you positioning yourself wire you out there and also is like a choice that you make about wool I be a person who lives in the public eye and I'm not trying to say that if you choose to live in a public arena we should be harassing you and we should whatever but I just think that it's something to think about I'm like why Georgia and Amal Year like two people who if they really wanted to you could see like more from the Saharan Meghan like do the same kind of work like a humanitarian the whatever you don't know anything about them they're never like you know it's like every time that I see them I believe that they are strategically doing it so I know what they're up to and I'll say like Laney Laney Gaza Elaine Lui who writes about this Megan a lot actually really smartly has sort of drought on a through line through Megan's kind of Hollywood pr experience and how that sort of leading to that sort of driving the conversations like Meghan is kind of is really she is in the driver's seat on the left side of the road trying to determine you know how her story against holds in a way that I think people have said make the here's really uncomfortable because she has her own machine and I think she's in a she's in the right place like George in a mall to be sort of like independently an already wealthy where it's like sometimes people the thirst comes from a sense of like I need to make money so I need to stay on the public conscious in evolves being desperate for tabloid cupboard then so be it but whenever you're already rich and successful you don't necessarily need more fame or you don't need more attention I think it's it puts you in a position to make it easier to avoid tablets for me I think like I think whenever you don't need it it makes a little easier yeah so like George in a mall like especially George he's been quinn is she is not seeking that personal attention and the talent he could do it I think she could lose a lot of she moved to l. a. or got a house again but here's the thing right is again the I would feel so much differently about this if she were an also and it was and so much of this conversation to me is Meghan is facing the brunt of actually like what is an issue with Harry Harry and you know it's like this is actually not about her she is one hundred percent all damage and she happens to be black so therefore the damage is extensive yes but again I'm like I just look at all these people like Princess Beatrice running around New York like maybe the job maybe not getting a job to like whatever it is that they're doing I'm not saying that charity is not important work but again these are people that are so privileged there so allege the level of like do I feel sympathy for someone who is being honest about their mental health and what kind of the havoc that being in the public eye as wrecking in their family one hundred percent I'm sympathetic about that but again I was like you get to be someone that gets that sympathy because you are like you are there there's so many other people who don't get to make choices about where they work and how they work and I understand everybody's family dynamics are complicated but honestly it's twenty nineteen the monarchy is out of the house the monarchy is a scam that's been going on since the ninth century and it's even it's even bigger than him it's like see like watching Americans lose their minds about a wedding of someone who's never going to be King I was like that's something that we should all be a little embarrassed about because this great excuse me the wedding ceremony woods the wedding was actually the weighing bobby maybe about all of my but anyway to wake up at six in the morning to stuff I'm just saying any let's just say it's one of those things that again I'm like hi you're not even GonNa be king so I don't know what you're wrestling with get an honest job stop living on the tax payers like you you are like there's a law that he can deal with that platform it's not to say that he can't but again I was like you like you have to be really honest about the power that you only get to a point yeah they got us admit that resignation letter to lily but I know we we can move on I'm sorry I wanNA rescue I want to rescue the black members of the royal family bring them back to America where we have also racism different but in a different accent can we talk about one other black royal adjacent thing that's made me really happy so Meghan M. Harry like going to weddings of their friends with always names that I can't say Michel Nunu Michel Nunu like who knows what that women have called but the Daily Mail covered that was so delightful because one I'm like do you really want to be seen at a wedding that jared Navan car like I'm just like jared and Ivanka or your friends friends and you actually be there I think that's bad but also my favorite tidbit of news that came from all of this was that Gayle King was there and they definitely use her as like Peiris married to that one actor like all these people were there but they like big gayle king have like a prime seat and everybody was like this is weird because they just met guilty yeah and I was like I love it Gail King Our oil thing once I would send her at inputting gayle king one time she is coming to all my events did you see that Speaking of television personalities did you see that Hoda copies book outsold Ronin Barrels Book Bobby I saw that because you sent us but when I saw when I saw that it when I saw that it was like the number two selling book of last week I was like wow that's shocking a name just because you saw so much ronin stuff does not mean that book is going to get any further than your twitter feed and the jokes about all of his his Ukrainian accents or whatever makes statements damaging to McGowan I have something amazing Howard wrote the woman had light into rose pretty hard this is the killer Weinstein replied especially if my fingerprints are not on this they are not Howard wrote and the conversation between you and I is recorded I will day that it's one of those like nonfiction books like that I understand wanting the impulse to buy copies book like you want that voice and like you like the personality but like when it's on in book not even the day after it's published six hours before it's published every website is written the twenty th the twenty.

"Eighth Doctor. Time more three. Yes more big. Finish more fantastic big. Finish eighth doctor. Adventures are something that I always look forward to. I hope that they keep producing many eighth doctor series for ever never never. I just can't get enough. Palm again is the eighth doctor. He's got some great companions one of my favorite campaigns ever Charlotte Pollard. Was An eighth doctor. Companion and with bliss. He has another great companion. You get to learn more about her back story in this box set and you get to delve into the time more some more with the eighth doctor which is also really cool. I love the juxtaposition of the eighth doctor. Not Wanting to be involved the time more at all and then taking the potion that the sisterhood of karn offers him and deciding to become a warrior. Because that's what these times call for. I just think that that's really cool. And I think you see why the eighth doctor would make a choice like that through these time. War Box sets great stuff but the best part of this box set is the last adventure in the four adventure box set and that is the war val yard now. I love the character of the value. I think the idea of a enemy being the future. Dark part of the doctor is really awesome. I love the ways that they're able to bring the value back from time to time. We've seen him in other big finish adventures. And of course she saw in trial of a time. Lord and I believe he's made some appearances in other media as well but what I really like about that is that it is not the master who is a totally different character. That's this is actually a possible future. Doctors dark side and however they explained what creates value. It is the doctor biting himself. And I just think that that is a cool concept and I think that they're able to pull it off really well whenever they use the value. They always have a really good idea going in now when we first met the valued in trial of time Lord the last episode of trial of a time Lord is we know did not go the way they intended. They weren't able to use the original script for it. Because Eric say word left but this they going with a plan and it's really great for us to hear Michael Jason. Back in the part and having face off against the eighth doctor. Which again is Romantic doctor Doctor. That has a lot of heart cares very much about his companions. The world doesn't want to be part of the time more so the value add up against that is an interesting juxtaposition and I enjoyed it greatly with the eighth doctor. Stuff any place you really want to jump into with big finish is a good place to start with talker. Pretty much any of the sets. You could just jump in and that'd be great place for you to start. I of course highly recommend starting with a storm warning the first eight doctor adventure but you know jumping wherever you feel comfortable because the doctor stuff is really easy to get into and Paul mcgann is a pro at the audio stuff. That's where his doctor really came to life. Most so you see a doctor. That's really been developed through the audio and that's really cool to a doctor time worth three. I can't believe they're still telling great time war stories. I was really dubious when they said they were going to do it. But they have exceeded my expectations at every turn meds so I started PROZAC last week. And I gotta say it has really helped a lot. I am not having those catastrophic thoughts that I was having before that I couldn't dismiss Now if I have some kind of catastrophic scenario playing in my head like I get hit by a bus today or something like that I'm able to easily dismiss it. You know kind of say thank you thought for trying to keep me sharp. But I'm going to focus on some other stuff now. by focuses way up Energy levels are up. The medicine has helped a whole lot. And I am very glad that I So it helped that I that I got help because I was in a really dark bad place and now I'm feel like I'm coming out the other side and I'm I'm feeling much much better. I'm really glad that I took the steps. I did and I would encourage people if you are in a place like that. You know. Medication doesn't have to be forever Sometimes people are just in a in a place where they need some help lifting themselves out of a deep depression and once they get themselves reset to normal they. They can t go off the meds. I did that once before about ten years ago and now I'm to try it again. I'm going to see if this is something where I would need to pay possibly be a more permanent vacation or perhaps I will talk to my doctor again. You're numb. She'll be like no. You're cool you can go off of it and whatever she whatever she decides. That's that's the advice that I will follow but yeah it's been it's been a great great help but I I have a very much appreciated the support of people. It's just been really great to see that people care and that Now and that. There's there's relief for this. I mean it's something that you manage. It's not something that you cure but at the medicine is definitely helping me manage and I am very very grateful. Dr Who Series Twenty Six Blu Ray. So the final season of classic. Who is going to be released as a Blu Ray box set the BLU ray box sets? I have found have been awesome the special features that they load them with our fantastic and in the preview for this one we get to see so altered back and character as ace which was very very cool. I will post a link to that so if you haven't gotten a chance to watch that yet you can check it out a big. Fan of the BLU ray box sets. I mean it's not just seeing the episodes like in crystal clear Blu Ray but it's also the special features that a little more than the new commentaries and all that stuff if you are already a fan of the classic era of Dr Who than the Blu. Ray Box sets really make a fine addition to your collection if you're looking for a way to watch the classic era of Doctor Who I highly recommend a box subscription because that way you get a tons of episodes But if you wanted something that you could watch on Blu Ray than the blue box at checkout but the special features are really. The Star of the box sits there. They put a lot of time and effort into the special features. And that's where it's at with this kind of stuff. It was really the the value added material six. I'm really excited about it. As everyone knows. The seventh doctor is in my highest tier of doctors. I really liked what Lester McCoy. Brought to the rule he was one of the doctors that was with me the longest because I kept falling his adventures in the Virginia Adventures Books And I'm still reading those so I feel way that the seventh doctor never really left my consciousness. So that's probably why he's one of my top tier doctors and I love the darkness that he had I love. He's weird affectation. I loved his rolling of his honors. And all of that by some doctor very excited. There isn't a season. I think I'm looking forward to on BLU ray. More than season twenty six. I could mend that later but for now I think that's that's sure season. Twenty six of the season most looking forward to for a blue box. Set the interviews and stuff like that are going to be awesome. I can just very excited. That's all for this episode. I've been Andy. This has been positive. Thank you for listening..

"Douglas Adams it's my forty second episode. So what better thing to talk about than to talk about Mr Douglas Adams? Douglas Adams had a career on doctor. Who before going on to write Hitchhikers Guide to the galaxy which his one of my favorite books of all time probably Douglas Adams was the script editor on seasons. Seventeen and he also wrote a couple episodes like seep death Pirate Planet and Shahdeh Shehadeh animated and released. So that's a cool thing at checkout. It's on the BLU rays and other media platforms and such and I would recommend watching it and I would also recommend listening to the big finish version of it featuring Paul mcgann the eighth doctor instead of Tom Baker the fourth Dr. Douglas Adams was one of those guys that he was smart. He was funny and when he wrote Hitchhikers Guide to the galaxy in all of its forms. Radio play novel. What HAVE YOU? It just popped off the page which is hilarious and for me for a book to be equally insightful and hilarious was kind of a revelation and that's one of my favorite books. It's also really short. Douglas Adams famously did not really like writing that much and had to be locked in a hotel room to finish the second novel restaurant at the end of the universe and I just find that Hilarious as a not quite successful author myself. I find the idea of Douglas Adams. My favorite author have you do be forced to write a kinship with that but forced me to write. But that's why I have this podcast though so I can. I can get my ideas out somehow but w tie to doctor who is Something that goes through the show since he worked on it in eighties. There are references to Arthur Dent in the tenth doctor's time the seventh doctor makes a paraphrase of a line from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. Douglas Adams also never met an idea that he didn't like to use at least twice he was going to use an idea that later became the universe that everything doctor who but instead it became life the universe and everything is third book. Shahdeh parts of that became dirk gently simplistic detective agency so he. He's got a bunch of stuff going on that if you know if he can't use it he's GonNa use it another and I appreciate that about. Douglas Adams also That he he was fond of his ideas. He was more than willing to use them. Come hell or high water but I really enjoyed Douglas Adams. One of the few regrets I have in life is that I had an opportunity to meet Douglas Adams at something some time ago in the past and I didn't for whatever reason and of course Mr Adams has since passed on but I would have really loved to have shaken his hand and just let them know how much his writing affected my life in a really positive way and Talking about Douglas Adams and how much I enjoy stuff is is really Cathartic. It's just great to think back on all of those moments reading his stuff and just laughing out loud. I don't know that I'd ever experienced a book. That just made me roll around on the floor laughing literally before. That was a thing that people said. I just reading hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy for the first time for me was very much transformative it. It really made me into an absurdist I would say and I I appreciate the setups. Take on so many things in those books. I've really enjoyed it and I I also enjoy the indelible mark. He left on doctor who the Zany nece added to doctor. Who and the insight at the same time being humorous. I think it was great I missed greatly. I gotta get back to reading And another thing one of these days the last book which was completed by a different author but the last book that he had started writing before he died. One of these days. I'll I'll I'll get back to that I'll read it. It's just hard because after I finish reading that that's it. There's there's no more so I'm kind of hanging onto it for a rainy day. But you done this Adams. Great author if you haven't read his stuff. I highly recommend reading stuff. If you haven't watched doctor who episodes I recommend doctor who episodes city of death You might remember Jon Allen. I talked about city of death while ago. And it's it's one of those classic classic episodes. It's good stuff. Shadow is also one of those talked about episodes as people wishing that had been completed and now with the animated version featuring Tom Baker it has been completed. So that's worth checking out right. They're thugs Adams. He is definitely missed bad day at a day-to-day that's actually not true. At all I had one bad moment today that stuck with me and that I allowed to permeate the rest of my day. It's just an interaction with a colleague that I was hurt by a little bit and instead of letting the person know. Hey you know what you just did there that that was kind of hurtful and I. I didn't appreciate that I just let it fester and I let it stew and that's never thing but I also let it get to me and it happens. It happens to everybody. You know we all have those times that something just hits you wrong. Something just hits you in the wrong way and it just gets is India and it's hard to get out hard to get out of your head. I've given many people advice when they're having bad day or just sat and listened to them when they're having a bad day and you know tried to comment tried to get him to think about positive things. Things are great for four. Things are looking forward to so. I have all these like platitudes. That can give to people. When they're having a bad day that I can say. Hey you know what? You're looking forward to what something you really enjoyed last week. That anything but of course when you're in it when you've got that thing in you that's bugging you. It's really hard to remember those perhaps tidbits of wisdom that you would share with another person and apply yourself but instead of holding onto this this little annoyance from the day any longer. When I'm doing I'm talking about it here on this podcast. Which is one of my favorite things to do. I really enjoy talking. Everybody I it makes me feel really good getting things out talking about my favorite stuff. Things are looking forward to and also. I'm reminding myself of the things that I would say if I was listening to myself if I was sitting down with me and and hearing what I was saying I would say things like well you know. Be kind to yourself for the rest of the day. You get yourself a treat you know. Maybe think about something that you've really enjoyed over the past few days. Maybe Watch television. Show that you really looking forward to maybe watch the eleventh doctor episode the power of three tonight. Because you've been looking forward to do that for awhile. So maybe I'll do that right after I finish this podcast thirteenth Dr Coat so ordered thirteenth. Dr Coat and I had kind of forgotten that I had ordered it and it arrived the other day and I was like. Oh my God. This is an awesome thirteenth. Dr Coat and I realized that I had in fact ordered it for myself but that means I am very close to having a thirteenth doctor. 'cause play all. I need now. Are The pants emily? Kettles and tells me I'm probably sized ten. I think she's being little kind. I think I may be more of a twelve or fourteen but once I get those pants I will have myself a thirteenth house play and I think about 'cause play the thing I really enjoy about. 'cause play as. I have a really nice seventh doctor cost. I think that's my best doctor who caused play. My second best is my fourth doctor. 'cause play it has a scarf that Catherine knit for me. So it's a very special Kaz play because someone put a lot of work into it for me and that and it looks amazing. The scarf looks amazing. The only thing that makes the fourth doctor. 'cause play not my best. Cows play is my hair and its lack of curls and bonus but with the seventh doctor when I can wear the hat and good but after fourth doctor. I would probably say my eleventh doctor. Purple Coco's play. And then my eleventh doctor. Then my eleventh doctor Tweet coat. Kaz Play and then my twelve. Dr Koss play now. I've been working on a fifth doctor. 'cause plate for a while now but I there's so many elements of that one. That are just gonNa be really hard to find a TV really hard to find the perfect jacket and the perfect pants for that one. And I've always always always always wanted a six doctor 'cause play because it's such an iconic look much like the seventh doctor's question mark jumper the six doctors whole look like something you're never gonna see on anything else except for that character so. I've always wanted a sixth doctor. Cows play one of these days. I'll get that. I'll get that for myself but man. I'm really excited about getting a thirteenth doctor. House play together partially because it is the first time that I will be cross playing doctor which is really really cool. I love that I will have that opportunity kind of that way to say that you know what the perceived gender of the doctor doesn't matter the doctors still the doctor and I just think that that's awesome and I'm looking forward to it. I'm so happy I got the thirteenth Dr Code. Just need those pants now. I got I got the T shirt. I've got pricers. I've got an awesome pair of boots that I also use for my eleventh doctor. 'cause plays just those pants just those pants. But I forgot to say what I really enjoy about. 'cause play in general is that you get to inhabit the physicality of the character that you're betraying you get to like take on persona a little bit and show the world that you love this character and you love this thing in a way that you don't get any other way and I and I really enjoy that about house play. It's the closest that I get to really feeling like the doctor and that makes it cool and fun. That's all for this episode. I'VE BEEN ANTI. This has been positive. Thank you for listening..

"who " Discussed on Something Who

"Human okay well. Let's not tantalize our listen any longer and we'll we'll start by discussing teams of the JAPS. I he was to kick us off with what they thought about that I might as well yeah. I I loved it. It was one of the best bits of slices doctor who for me. casino is a bad day missed. I've enjoyed the show since Vincent. Dr sets quite some time. that was kind of my fairly long running yeah favorite episodes of the Mo- fits here would say I didn't then okay. I can't quite articulate. Roy in some ways as I can. I noticed that some of the same folks that we've seen in in some of the other episodes I chatted with friends who've happily being the pick plus so in it but but for me the way I tend to engage with these things if I'm enjoyed the story actually engaged with the characters and the plot then I I can put these in these are the kind of things to one side and just just really get interested and and absurd. It's up for me Paul. What I saw I saw Jones reaction before I watched it which unfortunately set my my expectations slightly to about I did I did know blaming you. I'm obey and I I was very pleased. I think the I mean another thing the five less than glowing about this episode. It's not mainly down to Giles East down coming after Rosa because I still that's still way up there. It was my favorite episode but this was a fast second and there's a pattern forming their. I'm wondering if when we to the end of the series the older historical stores have been my favorite and if so what will that tell me that definitely something something distinctive about the way they're approaching them isn't that I mean I know we've talked about the way that the stores would take him. No more subtle approach to the idea of Evil Villainy uh-huh had just general evidence agonised for the doctrine each each story but the historical ones the ones that are personifying that I think so yeah the subtlety which had his best series subtlety is something you appreciate at its worst. It's when it is an absence absences something well more dramatical melodramatic been used to for fifty years so it's not it's not entirely a positive saying that I spent the last few years thinking that they program was too over the top wishing drain some the Colorado fit but anyway we're supposed to this episode I thought it was very nice piece of drama and probably a better piece of Dr who than Rosa just to make that comparison again because the the science fiction strand of the plot I felt was more imaginative taste better integrated and more and more surprising had trump twist which which is nice so and I don't. I hope because they're saying that the the main plot was delightful well. I think he's past the halfway point in the series. I think it's time to stop beating around the Bush. I think by fuel reviews guys are actually more interesting than what I saw on the screen taming of the Punjab ever society but I found it unbelievably dull this razor had had a point to it in the cree with trying to stop doc someone preventing a very important part of American history happening. They swamped bearing in mind. It was say people and story. Driven didn't didn't really have strong roles. The characters involved and this is. GonNa sound harmless but I couldn't really care less about someone going. I'm back in time because of a broken watch. Unfortunately it just didn't do it for me. At all again. it's a science fiction and fantasy and she showed the aliens in it. Rutley pointless again. It's another alien character probably worth of plus forty million scoring and scrabble so I just I just couldn't I couldn't see the point of them being in it and if you can have it story and people driven then give all of the companions the friends strong role to play. Yes doesn't seem to have any screen presence to me. I think I can and say that now having watched beyond the halfway point in the series now she just doesn't help screen at I don't know if it's the script or the or the actress Ryan was badly part of the scenery all the way through the episode the best character it was prim- I think he was the Hindu guy shot at the end that was that was a poignant moment but I'll just just wasn't it. Just didn't greet me real real letdown. I thought Rosa was fantastic as well that was really tightly plotted and and there was a real countdown with that that bus journey that was a but attention there but I just didn't find. I just didn't find this story involving. It's all so yes arguably is a very important policy history as well just just like American civil rights but the story and the characters in the roles of the friends and the scripts scripts. I just didn't think it was powerful enough to get across the the you know the consequences of the partition of India so I didn't do it so for me. I'm afraid Oh the other thing I've read lots of gushing praise about the filmography well it was filmed in Spain say I think people feel let down if I check that out and then the part where they cut away to the woods and they found the the alien captial whatever it was that looks like exactly the same woods just they used in the woman he felt earth when Ryan again came across something alien in the woods as well so that could it could have been very high brow and very satisfying but it was so dull I sucked. They're picking it to pieces unfortunate. Sorry guys okay so so I suppose I fill four somewhere in between I mean I I actually really quite liked the lack of action in sort of slow pace and the fact that it was. It's a character piece. That didn't bother me at all. I was Bravo with Rosa. I I felt like I could have been quite happy with this being pure historical yes. I felt I felt that the the the aliens didn't really add a huge amount and Simon's going to shake his head this because they were the only threaten threaten it well apart from of course from from the Hindi phonetics but but yeah I mean I could quite happily watch. AM carried a piece for for forty five minutes and so quite the aspect of it and Graham thought was had a lovely scene in it chatting in a way to to Yasay Simon. I mean as far as far as as yes is concerned mandate Gil I mean she's got a Yorkshire accent so sell straightaway. She got off to when when she she told the knew all the characters and the woman I felt I thought what a great idea so probationary police women can be a strong character lots of zest and Gutsy and it just hasn't Napn since then and this story was all around her family and what had happened in the past to to get grandma and yes to where they were in present-day present-day Sheffield and it. It just didn't hold my attention fortunate you know I I love. I Love Vincent and the doctor as well. They like character-driven stories but I'm just all these all these stories they lack of lack of attention and lack of menace. We'll talk about this later about the direction the script in writing and the guy but you still gotta grab hold in some windy view is no people's attention because if someone asks sorry guys if someone else out time is about us you know what. Dr Who all about you wouldn't describe something like demons or the pungent possibly not even riser and I want to pass on the torch to to new fans to the shy feel slightly the different about but we'll we'll move onto that demons of the Punjab I I think that's been the weakest one of the series safe off interesting. I I don't disagree with your criticisms. It was slower than it needed to be in the character or characters ones quite as vivid as could have been but you know I'm so used to to that with this current series. That's that's almost become a new baseline for me so I still giving it a bit of a pass because doing something different but as is the second historical in a row where the ducks has not been trying to do something but trying to prevent something it's it's really flagging up a bit of a floor consensual floor for me there floor consensual existed for most of the history through this program with historical. Delta's into the future presidents future. He can change the events in the past he comes and based on nothing more than the fact that we know near that is in the past in our history folks who it's it's never made any sense. Russell oh how to go fixing it with his fixed moments in time and that appears to other than using that phrase that appears to have been kept as yeah well yeah I think in Rosa we wasn't unacknowledged fixed point in time here. It's the father's Day version of time travel into the past where you con change things because it's your own pass and credit paradox so really they are the only two different versions of restrictions travel into the past museum insane and they've used them both up and so fell so I'll be interested to see what happens in the next which I think is next week because they they can't reuse again. They've got to stand around treating the past a bit more like the future vice versa because otherwise is creating artificial distinction. I think which the viewers will notice if you do it too often so the doctor I'm presiding over the marriage led to prims definite because it offended did because it was a marriage of two different religions Hindu and Muslim that offended that offended some of the locals and he's younger brother yet the yet the think the holy man who they found dead on the tracking the woods it would have been him he would have presided over the wedding so the doctor intervened and kill you telling me that the whole wouldn't have been killed if the doctor hadn't been there is that it was just just just been running a try not to look into it too deeply. It was just trying to think about this policy of non-interference. Just let you touched upon Paul. I think I think we're supposed to believe events would have regarded that whole thorny tony issue. I won't get into this here but one version time travel is these events happened once without the doctrines companions there and and when they turn up now that's a different version they have to go back to the future to version where you have to keep in the shadows and not be seen in our influence anything not flies but the end the other version is that they were always is there is the the known which is the deterministic version so which means they can't. They can't chain not sure what I think about that. We could do a whole episode of mechanics time travel that version suggest to me that they can't change anything if they were always there then. They don't need to worry about not exactly because they wouldn't be able to. I thought if that's those events would transpired anyway. If the doctrine friends come back there anyway and Tamale cynical mind having at Loyola upset very much. I thought well that makes it even more pointless..
