Loving this season. Bill is a damn fine companion, Nardole is kinda cool.

I always hate seeing a Doctor go, but there seems to be a great weight lifted off of Capaldi's shoulder!

Anyone with access to a UK proxy can probably see it at 1345 ET on the iPlayer.

Hah, spoiler free comment. The Doctor's in Aberdeen.

The sheep better be careful.

Scotland, huh.

Whovians with better memories than mine, remind me---has the Doctor ever been to Ireland?

Not on the actual show, as far as I can determine.

David Wailiams as the next Doctor, and Nardole stays....

Good episode, had a very strong old school, like Aztecs or Marco Polo old, vibe.

It is just about now.

I used to watch Shooting Stars all the time when I lived in Europe (we had access to a few channels from the UK).  It's the first place I ever saw Matt Lucas.  That show was a farking riot.   It's also the only show ever saw Ulrika Jonsson in.  I was never sure what she actually did.

The season started strong, but it really went off the rails with the stupid mummy alien storyline. I didn't even like the first part because it was a hour of "it was all a dream" pointlessness. It was a real waste of three episodes.

Last week was decent, though, and I did like the Pertwee-era shoutout.

Fine, I should have been more clear. I know the Roman aristocracy were ... ahem... unlimited, but was not sure about the soldiers.

Everything that Reeves and Mortimer do is f*cking awesome. Reeves is a dadaist, and Bobby tags along.

Come to think of it, the first time I might have seen David Walliams on TV may have been when he was playing Chris Peacock on Shooting Stars.

The Romans were very flexible about sexuality really. They were far different than we are. The aristocrats were just more flamboyant and more indulgent with things, but it wasn't only them that would be sexually open or not straight.

Fair point. It's funny (in a sad way) that thousands of years ago there was less attention paid to orientation; just love who you wish, and we think we understand love and sex now.

The Romans had no concept of sexuality as we have it. Also they had no concept of race as we have it. There were a good number of Nubians who moved into the Roman Empire and lived just fine. Their children were Romans. To a Roman your skin color meant nothing. They had no concept it could mean anything. A Roman was a Roman was a Roman. Whether white, olive complexioned or dark skinned.

I saw Reeves' fantastic documentary to mark the 100th anniversary of dada.

I love catching Bob Mortimer on Would I Lie To You because he tells insane, hilarious stories about his childhood that are usually, in fact, true.

I've seen this one before but I'm crying from laughing so hard anyway.

Well, we might still be that way if some Christian Emperors didn't come along and ruin it for everyone.

I think the most unbelievable part of this episode (including the bad CGI of the monster running up the hill) was the fact that we were supposed to believe all the Roman soldiers were under 18.
