I hope you guys get to see the Dr. Who sooner rather than later.


Is that The Royale Family the one with the family who sit around watching tv and eating sweets, ands periodically sending "our Anthony" out to get more candy?

I LOVe that! We got 1 season of that a couple of years ago. I was glad to see Mrs. Cropley from the Vicar of Dibley reincarnated as the Grandma....but a bit of a bitch. :roflmao:


I like The F Word too. Why no mention of The Worst Week of My Kife? That series is so funny....pants wettingly funny. :roflmao:

Royle Family is that one, Jude - a one-off show with the exit of Liz Smith's character (Gran).


There's a whole heap of stuff that doesn't seem to have made it into the lists....

I never thought I'd say this, but :smooch: to Man Utd for winning :yes: Maybe the players are Dr Who nuts :roll:


mad, for a mo I thought you last post was DURING Dr Who! :shock: I won't even answer the phone if it rings while the Doc is on :no: Occasionally Ma tests me, but I ignore her :lol:


So, just what does The Face of Boe (RIP) mean by 'You are not alone'? :huh: All the Time Lords are dead :yes: Maybe the Master is back :yes: That would make sense, I guess.


I loved the scene at the end with Martha with Abide With Me playing in the background :sigh:


But YAY! The Daleks are back next week :joy::joy::joy:

So cute! I always thought Daleks were just really silly looking and not at all scarey until I saw an episode with them in the Chris Ecleston season of Dr. Who.

There was just 1 but it was terrifying . And then very sad.




Later in an epidosde with alot of them I was properly scared. :roflmao:

Jude, are you talking about the episode when the Dalek wants to 'see the sunlight'? :mood: Mad me MAD, that did :yes: Anyone who knows the history of Dr Who knows that Daleks are evil personified and have no feelings whatsoever :no: I'm glad the Doc at least stuck to his feelings about them :yes: Love Christopher's performance in that one.


Will be interesting to see the Doc's reaction to them next week. After all, they were pretty much the reason he lost Rose :yes:


Mad, they could of course be talking about the Doc's family. They must be out there somewhere :yes: His granddaughter was his first companion, wasn't she? I did read somewhere that the Doc's son was going to be mentioned somewhere in this series :yes:


It's a shame they trailed off his story at the end. We don't really know what happened, do we? Just that there was a kick-ass war. So many unanswered questions: How did they destroy Gallifrey? Why didn't more Time Lords escape? etc. etc.

Moi has just had a brainwave :smart:


In the last episode of Torchwood, we heard the TARDIS. As far as we know it wasn't the Doc as Captain Jack's nowhere to be seen at the moment. Could it have been the Master? His TARDIS would sound the same AND he could make it look like a police box as the chameleon circuit works :yes: Plus Captain Jack has no idea what the Doctor looks like now :no:


It would tie in nicely with the 'You are not alone' prophecy. Which would explain the bit in Dr Who Confidential when David Tennant said that 'the Face of Boe is not wrong. But he's not right.' :roll:

Umm.. Cap'n Jack comes back this series (around ep 11)and i think it links with the TARDIS noise heard off stage....the timeline's different. (Timeline, Who don't need no steenkin timeline!)


i felt very uncomfortable in that episode, feeling sorry for a :dalek: IT JUST AIN'T NATCHEREL! (and Moo - :smooch: for :dalek:) My bet's still on the Master. Didn't the Doc say a bit more about the Time War in that episode at the end of series one - why do i have the feeling that he was something to do with the end of the Time War?


(just made a typo - Tome War - isn't that the 4-word story!!??)
