Last week was a whole bunch of Donald Trump Jr. news. Oh, so very much Donald Trump Jr. news. If that's not your cup of tea, there was also a very messy eel truck accident, the reveal of a female (gasp!) Doctor Who, and today happens to be the 12th anniversary of the Grey Wave thread. Unfortunately, most of the images from the Grey Wave thread are lost to time. Maybe Doctor Who can bring them back.

I'm happy to finally see a female Doctor, but Tom Baker will always be my favorite.

Tom Baker was my first experience with Doctor Who thanks to my local PBS station. There are other incarnations of The Doctor that I like, but Tom Baker will always be in the #1 spot.
 
2017-07-17 02:49:36 PM  
Pertwee Doctor is Best Doctor.  Book it, done.

Actually, almost all the Doctors have been at least pretty good...though I didn't care much for Colin Baker.  *shrug*

conniemac: Tom Baker was my first experience with Doctor Who thanks to my local PBS station.


Hah, same here.  Baker was also #1 on my list until one day (when Netflix actually HAD them) I decided to go thru the whole* catalog.  Pertwee edged out Tom Baker by just a whisker.  YMMV, though.  Though him spending most of that incarnation stuck on Earth was kinda 'meh,' but they still made it work.

/*"whole" == "whatever was actually available at the time because somebody once upon a time at the BBC decided to record over a crapton of old episodes"

They could have saved some money and just shown Colin Baker reruns

Peter Davison was The Doctor to me. You can probably work out how old I am from that.

...if folks haven't heard/read, kimwin has been roping in volunteers to make 8.5" x 8.5" panels for a Fark quilt in the hope to auction it off as a fundraiser later this year.

If you can stitch, or glue fabric bits, or sketch/paint/screen with fabric paint, and would like to create a panel of a Fark meme, or some sort of Fark homage to Discussion threads like the Writers' or Sunday book club or what have you, please let her know and get started.  Some folks are even making panels out of T-shirt fronts that are Farkish, or making same Farkish.

Last I heard, the best guess estimate deadline as to when she'd need them sent to her by to stitch them together and whip up all that Farkness into one smashing quilt is September 16th.

The new Doctor series have been frantic, loud, with much running yelling, and explosion. There is no pacing. Looks like it was filmed for 9 year old boys. No matter who is the Doctor.

Sometime within the last three years I watched a few episodes. Or at least listened to them.

There's not a single complete second of silence anywhere in the audio.

Horrible.

I only remove replies to someone if it makes a significant difference. In this case, it would be pretty hard to remove those replies even if there were a lot of them since it's the exact same word.

Might consider at least saying "Hi" as I drive through on my way to Monterrey.  Last business trip American Airlines cost me two days of delay getting there, figured I might just head down I-35 next time.
