Re: Doctor Who

Matt was my fave, but Peter has been great.
I would be happy with any of the suggested replacements.

Re: Doctor Who

Has anyone watched the new one?  I was a bit nervous about it because I loved the last series/season so much.  But I thought it was great!   I instantly liked the new companion, Bill.  I'm a Matt Lucas fan so it was great to see him back.   Some of the dialogue was really funny, the "monster" was great, and the episode managed to be genuinely scary and moving too.   It also looked really good, interesting camera angles, good special effects (not like the old days!) and so on. 

I'm still sad that Peter is leaving, but going to enjoy his last hurrah!  He is going to be such a hard act to follow!   It will be strange watching the next series with no Peter, no Steven, and rumours that Pearl will be leaving as well.

Re: Doctor Who

Me!
I really liked it.
Yes, loved the companions. I agree on Matt.

I will miss, Peter, too, but understand his decision...I will obviously miss Steven more!
I didn't know Pearl was supposed to be leaving, too.
What do you make of the new doctor rumours?

Re: Doctor Who

About Kris Marshall, you mean?  I don't know.  I'm sure he'd be fine, but not what I imagined they'd go for this time, so I'm not sure that it's true.   Or maybe it's just wishful thinking, because I was terribly excited about Peter, and not at all excited about Kris! It seems that the Doctor will be regenerating this series (not at Christmas), so presumably we should see whoever it is soon?  I was wondering if they'd go for a younger, eye candy doctor again for the teen audience, but then Peter has been so good ...

Re: Doctor Who

My thoughts entirely.
I really like Kris and I guess he would be a midway choice...neither dead young nor dead old.
Yes, I was excited by Peter, too.
You remind me of another interesting point at Steven's talk and of course I am now going to make a complete arse of it, because I wasn't really paying attention- as on the world scale of events, it wasn't important to me!
They showed a clip, I think and sharp witted Frank picked up on the fact it indicated that the regeneration would be this series then and not at Xmas...is that what you meant?!

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, apparently it has already been filmed, but the Christmas special hasn't been filmed yet. And yes, it looks as if he's regenerating in the trailer.  It could all be red herrings, though!   I think it would be possible for him to regenerate and still be in the Christmas special - we could just see an early part of his timeline.   Or I suppose it's even possible that Peter isn't in the Christmas one, and it's the new doctor, whomever they be?  There's still time to announce it before filming starts.  I'm kind of hoping not, because I would like to see the Steven/Peter combination for Christmas again this year, with Matt Lucas too, of course!

Re: Doctor Who

Needless to say Steven refused to categorically answer Frank's point!

Re: Doctor Who

Of course!  But I do wonder if the fact that Peter has admitted to filming it, and that it's shown in the trailer is meant to confuse us and it's not actually going to happen after all!

Some bits that I liked:

"Doctor What?"
Incidentally gay main character (after Moftiss talking about representation in Doctor Who at SDCC - they obviously knew they had this lined up). 
The photos of Susan and River.
The Doctor going back in time to take photos of Bill's mum
Joy Division "Love will tear us apart" playing in the club when Bill and Heather connect
The Doctor's pride in the Tardis
The whole conversation about the Tardis with the Doctor waiting for Bill to say it's bigger on the inside, and she keeps comparing it to a posh kitchen or a lift!
"Nobody's from space"
"No, not specifically this one" (asked if he's from this planet).
Bill pointing out that the TARDIS acronym only works in English
The scary bits were really good, and sad at the same time ("You're dead") 
All of Nardole's facial expressions.

Looking forward to next week!

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, I really think you can spot Seven's writing in the bits where he tackles cliches and grammar etc!
I had completely missed Pearl's character was called Bill!
 
I am looking forward to not being disturbed next week: this week I was settling down to enjoy, in fact I had just expressed my admiration for the opening set- when the phone rang!
I ran to answer it in case it was my son, when in fact it was Amazon, for my husband as there was a problem with his account.  He then sat with his lap top on and spent about 15 mins on the phone, before he got it all sorted.
He kept looking at the TV(cos we normally mute by default, when one of us is on a call!), but I don't think he dared ask me to tun it down!

Re: Doctor Who

It's quiet here!  How are we liking the new series?  I've enjoyed all the episodes so far.  Saturday's was great, and it made me think of TFP with all the horror references!  David Suchet was perfect, and had me in tears at the end!  What a brilliant actor!  Peter is my favourite Doctor by far (and he's up against some stiff competition!).   And I'm intrigued by the ending!

It's a Jamie Mathieson episode next, so I'm really looking forward to that!  (I think his previous episodes have been very good). 

We know that

John Simm as the Master

is coming back at some point, so I might rewatch

The End of Time

to get me in the mood!

Re: Doctor Who

I really liked the frost fair one.
A lot of this week's I couldn't watch, as I just don't do bugs!
I know another member of the forum struggled as well, but I don't know if for the same reason!

Re: Doctor Who

Only one more episode to go!  And it looks like Steven's going out with a bang rather than a whimper!   Last night's episode was fantastic!  It still doesn't top my favourite episode (Heaven Sent - same Moffat/Talalay/Capaldi combo!), but it was the best of this series, and this has been a very good series.   It might even be my favourite series because I think Nardole and Bill

or Comic Relief and Exposition!

are such great companions!   Anyway, I loved the mix of comedy/sci-fi/horror/tragedy, and I got so absorbed that I forgot about the spoilers we've had and didn't pick up on the heavily hinted "surprises" until just before they were revealed, so they really were surprises for me!  I'm really looking forward to next week, but with some sadness.   We've had Sherlock feeling like an ending and now the end of an era of Doctor Who all within a few months! 

At least we now know the Doctor's real name.  Just as I suspected! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Doctor Who

Yes the name thing had me puzzled until I realised I hadn't actually missed anything!
Yes well I knew about erm...I don't really do spoiler boxes, but actually nobody else seems to be reading this thread anyway, so I tempted just to say!
Anyhow it was funny, because I kept looking at his character and thinking:  I know that guy.  What really got me was that he both looked an sounded a bit like Mark,, but I just knew he was far too short!
On the monster thing, well, to me it was so obvious what they were, they even looked like them...so I thought the Doctor was a bit slow there.
So are we to see the exit of both main actors next week?

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, it seems to be just us this season, and I suppose anyone else who looks in will already have seen the latest episode, so maybe we don't need to bother about spoilers!

I was almost as slow as the Doctor!  What with knowing that the Mondasian cybermen were back but didn't cotton on to what the patients were until they showed Bill the head attachment, and knowing that John Simm was back ... well, I had been waiting for him to appear, but for some reason just didn't suspect who he was until he met Missy, even though there was clearly something up with the character.   Actually in retrospect, I think my slowness might have been due to the fact that I watched it after three glasses of wine, having done my Saturday night out earlier in the day!  

Yes, I'm still wondering if Peter is really going to go next week, and not stay for the Christmas special.   I suppose we don't actually need to see who he regenerates into next week, but it could wait for Christmas day?   And I wonder which Master is going to make it through to the Chris Chibnall era?   I'm sad about Bill and Nardole going.    It's going to feel very, very new.

Re: Doctor Who

I'm sad about them all going, Steven in particular as he is my fave...
I did get a little lump in my throat when I saw it was Rachel and Steven together...hey and 2 Sherlockian actors in the episode!
The nurse, wasn't she the lady(who Martin was at drama school with) who flat shares with the journo who was murdered in TBB? Oh no it's not that...it's TGG and it's the star gazer...
Plus the Smurf was Mary's ex!...David?

Re: Doctor Who

I missed both the nurse and the Smurf being Sherlock actors!   I suppose the blue make-up helped to disguise the actor, or maybe it was just the effect of the wine!  I must watch the episode again.   Well spotted, BB!

I do really hope Steven returns as a writer, because he has written some real crackers of episodes.  I got the impression that he's gone for good, though.   Mark may be back but I don't enjoy his episodes as much as Steven's (although the last one was fun). 

 

June 25, 2017 10:43 am  #1137


Re: Doctor Who

Well I think I spotted the nurse, Alison the actress is and it was just a case of me thinking I knew the Smurf and somebody on Twitter said who he was!

Re: Doctor Who

I know it doesn't make sense, but I've been thinking about Missy being the new Doctor.  Obviously the current Doctor couldn't just become her.   But I wonder if he could look just like her and take on some of her characteristics - in fact he already copied his looks from the character Peter played in The Fires of Pompeii (not to mention looking a lot like Frobisher in Torchwood)!    And at the moment, we're stuck with two Masters, so likely one is going to go.  There's been the whole storyline with the Doctor turning Missy into a good person, and her pretending to be the Doctor and calling herself Doctor Who. It all feels like foreshadowing.   Plus no announcement of the new Doctor being cast, despite the current one apparently being about to regenerate.  

I suspect not, as it looks like Chris Chibnall is going to start with a clean slate, and Missy is very much a Moffat creation.  But it's a fun idea!

Re: Doctor Who

I also had that thought about Missy and I could live with it.

Re: Doctor Who

Not really knowing what you are talking about story-wise, because I only watch DW occasionally. But I did watch the last ep and also had a little Sherlock deja vu: do you recognize the location?
