I watched the whole of the original series and still haven't got a clue what it was about. :lol:


As for Doctor Who. No, not watched it, as I missed the last series and I haven't caught up yet. I like Capaldi as the Doctor though. All copied somewhere. Just need to catch up.

This season has comfortably been Capaldi's best, and imo one of the better seasons since it was brought back.

Capaldi is a very good choice as DW, but the writing has often been unworthy of him. This weeks story was fairly good, but the Ice Warrior Queen had some corny lines and the politically correct agenda of the producers is pretty blatant.

Watched the doctor who finale. I assume the end was a reference to the tenth planet which I actually watched last month ha ha. The current writer loves to play with the shows history.

Dr Who - caught up with the series. Last two episodes were very good, the rest were not.

American Gods - A good opening episode followed by six episodes of uneventful nonsense, some tits, and a relatively decent final episode.

Twin Peaks - WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?
David Lynch, that's what.

Fargo faltered badly this season. Still a very good show, but easily the weakest season.

Better Call Saul had its best season to date. Roll on S4.


Blood Drive. Three episodes in and it's utter fucking carnage. Blood, tits, cannibals, robots, explosions, serial killers, death, mayhem, murder, mutilation, and cars fed on blood.

Three episodes into The Mist and it's already turned into Under The Dome.

They had an opportunity to make a series of The Doctor's Daughter and didn't bother, or they could have resurrected the character of Romana. But no, they've got to change things out of wanting to be PC.

Now explain to me how it works seeing as he was a grandfather?

I hope it dies a death now. I certainly won't be watching it.

The doctor being Susan's grand father seems to have been swept under the carpet a long time ago. I wonder if this means the doctor can start kissing bill now. I mean there was never anything weird about a 1200 year old alien falling for Rose ha ha.

It's a series full of contradictions, hell the character was even called Dr Who in the credits at one point before it was all "the doctor". Pretty sure a show about a thousand year old time travelling alien who fights monsters made our of jelly can have the lead character as a woman.

Exactly, can't believe how many angry tear strewn rants I've read on this since the announcement.

It's a Sci-Fi show, you'd think the fanbase would be a bit more open minded. Apparently not. :rolleyes:

I'll still give the new series a go but I can't see it going back to a pure sci fi show without agendas like the classic who. Last series was so weird when the doctor mentioned Donald trump. Why would a time lord mention Donald trump? Needs to be written by a sci fi writer.
