Well, Bones hated it, which means its now my favorite story of the season.

But really, I gave this one top marks. And a Gatiss story too. Never thought I'd see the day.

But really, this is probably his best series story yet. Almost makes up for VotD.
A Dalek asking if you'd like some tea still makes me giggle, though.

Then dont post here.

You do nothing but spew hate for the show, and are generally negative 100% of the time. Its offensive and tired.

Oh, and its a PUBLIC board. Get used to being called on your crap.
You say this on a thread about an episode that revels on negative happenings. It's entertainment.

He did say please, for that matter.

Aside from the inaccuracy of the statement (and I don't just mean it being questionable whether something can be generally adjective, which implies there are occasionally deviations, for 100% of the time), perhaps if you find someone disagreeing with you offensive then you should be the one wary of posting on a public (or, if you prefer, PUBLIC) board. If you think my posts are crap, why not ignore them?

Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS

I'm curious about the name 'Firebird' on the Russian sub photo. That could be the name of the sub, but I wonder if it could also refer to Clara as sort of a phoenix. Reborn from the ashes of her death, so to speak.

Exactly.
Bones, it would have been helpful if you'd said why you thought it was so unacceptably awful.
I enjoyed it in a "That's one I'll forget about, and then wonder why I've never rewatched it when I do finally remember it" sort of way, but I could understand someone slating it as "That only existed as a way of filling 45 minutes of airtime while giving the leads a bit of time off and trying to launch a spin-off series that probably won't happen."
But rancid TV, no-one involved should ever work again? Even the most god-awful sci-Fi - Threshold (the Voyager episode), the early bit of the Sci-Fi Flash Gordon - is still better than the Jeremy Kyle show. And even people on the Kyle show should be given the chance to go on to make proper documentaries.
Explain! Otherwise it's just random slagging.

Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS

Didn't pick up the appearance of Dame Diana Rigg until the credits and the actress who played Ada is her daughter.

First mother/daughter appearance for a Doctor Who serial?

Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS

Loved it. Didn't think I would, but like "Hide" it delivers on what I want from Doctor Who. I liked the Victorian setting, it advanced the storyline, there were some nice moments between Doctor and Clara and the parasite was suitably gross.

Urgh, the kids at the end... If their goal was to completely diffuse any enthusiasm I had for a NEIL GAIMAN CYBERMAN EPISODE they certainly succeeded. Who likes kids in stuff? Not even kids like kids in stuff.

Enjoyed the Hell out of that. Loved the Tom-Tom joke. Only complaint is that near the end, the villain-ess suddenly knew to call him "The Doctor", though he was never ever introduced to her as such. She just "knew" his name/title out of nowhere. But other than that... Wonderful.
Didn't he say "I'm the Doctor, you're mad, and I'm going to stop you" or something like that?

That part made me shudder a little. Not more "family" friendly stuff. But we'll see next week.

This weeks episode was Good. I'm in the camp that likes the Victorian Scooby Gang.

It was good up until that final scene. It started badly with Clara being dropped off (which I hate) and then got worse with the introduction of precocious brats. Why would anyone believe them over Clara? She should have just told them to piss off and go to bed without supper.

Yeah, agreed on the iffiness of having kids in an episode. As far as their saying they'd tell their dad about a time traveling nanny, well, Clara should have just said go for it. It would give him a chuckle or to, for sure. I hope the photo of Victorian Clara prompts a question or two, though Clara might just put it down to an adventure she has yet to have.

because this would have the bonus knock on effect of:

Please don't address me ever again, unless I quote you first.
#1.) In the future kindly explain why you feel whatever way about a given episode, such as diankara has suggested. It makes for a much more productive discussion, and your life on this board will be longer..

#2.) Kindly focus on your own postings and leave the moderating to Spaceman Spiff, Timby, and myself.

Otherwise, it's an infraction due to the history you have here.

P0sitr0nic, you and junxon both need to focus on your own posts, and the subjects at hand, please. This is after all the Doctor Who forum.
