Re: Series 13 Discussion thread (SPOILERS!!)

Sadly I have a feeling that production has probably been halted. John Bishop tested positive for Covid over the festive period, so I imagine that's effecting things?

Re: Series 13 Discussion thread (SPOILERS!!)

I liked the idea, it was just how they executed that it didn't do it for me!

Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

On a related note, Whittaker's dialogue is still so bland that I'm hard pressed to count great speeches of hers on one Sontaran hand. PLEASE up the writing game, Series 13!!! Fully agree with this, I think she's a superb actress but they're robbing her of moments to shine and she needs more excelle...

Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

I really enjoyed the episode overall, I think it was good as a whole, it had a lot of moments I really enjoyed. That isn’t to say there weren’t some flaws, there definitely were, I think the most glaring one for me was the pacing and flow of events. I think right off the bat I’d have cut the convolu...

Re: Series 13 Discussion thread (SPOILERS!!)

Biggest piece of nonsense was the Grace thing at the end though. What was that meant to be? Them both hallucinating at the same time or some sort of ghost? I was expecting it to be a projection from the Doctor or something but no. That was awful. It was very clear that Sharon D Clarke wasn't availa...

Re: Series 13 Discussion thread (SPOILERS!!)

Just typed out a massive screed of all my thoughts and accidentally lost it. Bugger.

Well, I enjoyed it overall but it did have some flaws - mainly underused elements, pacing and some of the dialogue.

Re: Big Finish

Got quite lucky the other day and noticed Big Finish was having a corker of a sale on Torchwood so I got the first three 'series' of the Monthly Range, and have decided to listen to everything in release order, seemed like the best way to go through things! That's me got pretty much every release up...

Re: Big Finish

Is anyone into the Torchwood audios? I'd really love to jump into them, and a friend got me 'Series 5', the ones continuing the show. Is that a good place to start with them or do you need any context? Trying to get myself out walking a lot more especially in the pandemic so I'm thinking audios coul...

Re: Series 13 Discussion thread (SPOILERS!!)

I have to say the sight of the Angels has made me nervous. I definitely don't disagree with the points about it being a viewers ploy, whether that is coming from Chibnall, or someone else in the BBC asking for popular monsters to come back, we don't know. I personally really enjoyed Series 11 steppi...

Re: Series 12 discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I'm not hugely into it either. I quite liked that Series 10 and 11 felt like they were moving forward and telling different stories, with less naval gazing and focusing on that stuff, but Series 12 swung back at that hard. I do feel like Chibs has a plan for Gallifrey and I'm interested to see...
