Re: Doctor Who

I'll admit that I haven't seen S10 yet (and I'm not really keen on watching it...), so I only watched the last five minutes of the Christmas Special because I'm really looking forward to Chris Chibnall's DW with Jodie. And I love her first couple of seconds. The look on her face when she says "Oh, brilliant!" - I'm definitely detecting some Tenth Doctor-vibes there. Can't wait to see more of her. As far as I'm concerned, things can only get better.

Re: Doctor Who

I eventually managed to catch up on the Christmas special today.
I absolutely loved it.
A master class from Steven.
I am so going to miss him.  Once again I am cross about how people do him down and do not appreciate his talent.  We are lucky to have him.
Mark was great in this episode too and nice to see Rachel, completing the Sherlockian family presence.
I thought Peter was really good, but Jodie made a good impact, too.

Re: Doctor Who

I know somebody else here is an Alan Cumming fan, but I can't remember who!  I've been meaning to post this - terribly exciting if we get to see him in Doctor Who!  Apparently he was previously asked to play the Doctor (wouldn't he have been fantastic?), but didn't want to spend 8 months of the year in Cardiff!

 Anyway, it looks like he will be in Doctor Who as King James I.
I'm not sure if they mean James VI and I, or James I of Scotland.  I suspect the former, as he's more famous.  Really looking forward to it!

Sounds good.

Re: Doctor Who

Funny that this should come up now. For the past few days I've been watching videos of Alan Cumming in Cabaret.
Clueing for looks.

Re: Doctor Who

Ooh, I'd like to see that!

Re: Doctor Who

Unfortunately he's probably not going to do the show again (he's played the Emcee three times over the years, the last one in 2014), so we're unlikely to have the chance to see him live, but there's plenty of videos on YouTube. One production was filmed for TV years ago.

Re: Doctor Who

If anyone is interested, is screening old Doctor Who episodes on  And I do mean old.  We're on Patrick Troughton at the moment.  (Bit of trivia - the character of Jamie in the episode currently streaming was apparently Diana Gabaldon's inspiration for Jamie in Outlander!)

BBC iplayer has all the reboot episodes too.

Re: Doctor Who

Somebody leaked 50 seconds of Jodie's first episode. Not spoilery at all but I couldn't help thinking of Jim in TAB when she went

"It's on the tip of my" - and pointed at her tongue


"The posh boy loves the dominatrix." Context matters.

Re: Doctor Who

New trailer out now - looks really good!  Nice to see them reusing the old quarries again
