  1. S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    I was thinking back to the scene when Clara discovered the Doctor as a child. We never did get to see the Doctor did we? Or why he was hiding up in the bed? That would be a timeless child.
  2. S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    I don't think that Desolation was the home planet if the Stenza. I thought they said that the Stenza came and made them experiment on their own planet. Anyway, I love JW. I don't think she is overdrawn. She seems much more like an old style Doctor to me and I certainly don't think she is more rapid than say CE. And her curiosity is totally winning. I think that they are trying to convey that she has her "youthful" wonder back.
  3. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    I think that with Amy it was a bit more complicated than that wasn't it? Amy was along because of the crack in time. He says this at the end of season one, he was aware that the crack never closed and he took her along knowing that she had had the whole universe flowing into her head. With both Rose and Donna the problem was different. I agree that they weren't picked because they were special (like Amy or Clara) but by the end of the season they were MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. Rose became bad wolf because she swallowed the Tardis's energy and Donna became a unique being because of the merging with the Doctor's extra hand (left over from Tennant's regeneration) etc. Martha got the short end of the straw of course coming between the two MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. It is the over importance of the companion that messed up both the RTD as well as Moffat eras. Anyway, I thought that this was great. JW was even more fab than I expected--she seemed very much a classic Doctor (despite appearing on Sunday) and the story was nicely contained and not about a puzzle that was gradually going to reveal itself (I hope) 5 years later to be about the Time Lords seeking to return to the universe from where they have been hiding.
  4. The Bachelor Season 23: Spoilers & Speculation

    Does that mean he is the Tin Man?
  5. BiP Season 5: Speculation & Spoilers

    I think you have that backwards.
  6. S05.E02: Week 2: Part 1

    Could someone tell me when they announced that they were changing the title of the show to TIP: Tia in Paradise? I missed it. I assume that if they make Colton the next bachelor we can expect that in week 4 or 5 Tia will show up asking to join the competition.
  7. The Bachelorette in the Media

    Minor point: the root isn’t “arch” but “arche” which could mean origin in the sense of old but also animating principle. Not that it changes your point. But we Bachelorette watchers like to be precise!
  8. Am i the only one who was Shocked, shocked i tell you! That somehow Matt was randomly selected to be in position to have the best team? I’m hoping that the first part is just setting us up for a fabulous Walter turnaround. But if not...Go Jordan!
  9. Season 14: Speculation and Spoilers

    We would be better off with Henry Higgins.
  10. S07.E04: Pressure or Paradise

    Maybe because they claim...to be EXPERTS? If you listen to them they insist that they use their tremendous knowledge and experience to ask complex and important questions and then thoughtfully put together couples who are fit for sucess. Yet somehow, that doesn’t seem to work. People may watch the show for the drama but the “experts”insist that that is not what they are looking for.
  11. S14.E08: Week 8: Hometown Dates 2018.07.16

    Not to mention he is an author....
  12. Season 14: Speculation and Spoilers

    Wasn't Nick on BIP?
  13. S03.E05: Pies

    Maybe she is afraid Paul will criticize the way she is biting things...
  14. Doctor Who in the Media

    It certainly seemed more about the companions than the Doctor. Disappointing.
  15. Season 1 Discussion

    To be honest, I’m not sure what she could have done knowing the discount orcs were 50 feet away. I thought that the bigger problem was that, having taken down who knows how many soldiers in armor she couldn’t handle the one guy in red velvet.
