Gosh Finy, if you and I,along with almost all of the people who replied to this are indeed Mindless Morons,then I like to think that we are all in very good company!!! Hee Hee!! To all my fellow M.M'S, I send warm smiles and wish happy times as we prepare to watch tonight's(Oct 18) episode of the famous Doctor!!! P.S. Can I possibly pleeeeease be just ONE of the M words? Either Mindless or a Moron,rather than BOTH?!!!!! It's such a lot to bear on my narrow shoulders!!!! Ha ha ha ha!!!!
P.S. Don't tell . . . . . I am so bad that I get up early on Sunday mornings, watch it on ABC iView as soon as UK as watched it, then I watch it on Sunday night, then Monday night and then the late, late repeat if they deign to show it. (they don't always do it) ヽ(´▽`)/
Yes I watch every episode since the show was first created back in the 60's and was in black and white!!! Like Finy,I adored the Dr as portrayed by David Tennant who I feel has been the best of all of the doctors. I still do not really enjoy Peter Capaldi's portrayal,so have not been quite so excited about Sunday nights as I used to be when the other Doctors were gracing the screen.But I do still watch this show.I think that Jenna Coleman as Clara is a delight!!
But Jenna is being written out I read.....Jules -i just received my David Tennant calendar from England -you would be SO envious!!! LOL cant stop looking at it -and also have two tee shirts. Have to put up two calendars as my dogs, dash and Bonnie are in a calendar of whippets printed in Melbourne.
Well!!! I am certain that there is a much more respectful way to voice your answer!!! Maybe just a simple and succinct 'NO' would be adequate in cases such as this!! I DO watch Dr Who,and I am far from being Mindless OR a Moron,OR even, horror of horrors,the double whammy you have labelled watchers of this show as being:I am most definitely NOT a Mindless Moron, the label you seem to feel anyone who does watch this program deserves!!! I certainly do not happen to enjoy EVERYthing which others find entertaining or even, in some cases,exhilarating;yet I would never presume to label them as being either 'Mindless' or a 'Moron' just because I do not feel the same way as they happen to about things There is no reason for any of us to make others feel uncomfortable by the indiscriminate use of unkind 'labels'. I was taught since childhood that if we do not have something nice to say,maybe it is indeed better to say nothing at all. Or to be non-committally brief in a case such as this very simple question put forward by Finy. Tolerance and acceptance of others and their different feelings to our own, begins with our own selves,and within our own hearts.Life would be very boring indeed if everyone felt exactly the same about everything! Let's face it,this question about Dr Who was NOT about an earth-shatteringly important MORAL issue,but merely a query about a bit of entertainment. Where matters of grave importance,and /or Moral Belief are being questioned,a whole other set of rules obviously exists!
I got involved in Answer Angels as it has been interesting, as well as pleasant and enjoyable to read and write replies to questions.I strongly believe it should continue to be done in this spirit of fun and friendliness without any name-calling at all,something which actually has been known to form the very beginning of that reviled action known as bullying!
Now.....let's all take a breath and share a smile,huh?!!
Oh! shalo.......'Tis a shame you've missed an absolutely brilliant series' in EVERY way! The fact it's run for over FIFTY years', proves that! There's no other TV drama that's got that score!
Maybe you just like 'winding up' people with a comment like that?
No. I've not seen any Dr Who. Although my partner enjoys it and catches an occasional episode with our 4 year old daughter. Not long after she was born he actually downloaded all the episodes where Tom Baker was the Dr and watched them with our baby...maybe that's why she likes it now!
Oh! lizzi, what a great idea! Tom Baker was an RSC actor, who came to prominence with his spell-binding, pardon the pun, role as Rasputin, in film, 'Nicholas & Alexander'! If you've not seen it, rent it out, or 'download' (?) it! Cheers!
Oh vee -welcome back!
Matt Smith -I didnt like him at first either as no one can match DAVID TENNANT -(I have tee shirts and calendars of him!!! love him to bits) but actually Matt Smith grew on me -he was, after a while, quite funny and also a good actor.
Meanwhile David Tennant sits on my desk with 12 photos -oh how lucky his wife is!!!
LOL, you make me laugh. Gosh you remind me of my Robert Pattinson days. Perhaps I should've stuck it out with this other fellow. To be fair, the show is on at an inconvenient time and I only have time for my regular shows of a night time.
I am obviously a moron too as I watch doctor who and have for most of the fifty years woo hoo! I am a big science fiction fan and cannot get enough of it anytime, Have you been watching the recent episodes with Jodie Whitaker? Very different and as much as it works with a female, the writing, me thinks too much "authors message "
