    Sadly I figured out it was Mel as soon as I googled it & saw her big poofy hair in a thumbnail. I think Ace was just wishful thinking on my part since I liked her better. And also the blonde chick's ponytail might have thrown me off. It'll just have to be supporting evidence for how unreliable first hand accounts can be Wink

    I would have made it a tipsy review but even I have my standards - hehe just couldn't bring myself to open a bottle of wine at lunchtime while I'm home alone. One of these days, though... one of these days. Maybe this weekend - I've invited one of my friends & her husband to come over and they both love the show. And wine at my house Mr. Green

    If Worzel Gummidge and the Third Doctor had a fist fight - who would win?

    Well, that's what breathless haste will get you.

    Our local DW group gets together once a month to watch some Doctor Who and usually there is some beer flowing. It is always fun to watch the show with others.

    "Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it." Søren Kierkegaard ... (which is why I make sure to napWink it's like a speedbump for life)

    I love watching the show with friends except I always cry. While it's "acceptable" to cry during a "proper" drama you can lose a lot of coolness points for crying during Doctor Who.

    It is OK to cry during Father's Day, and Doctor Who is proper drama!

    Hmmm. I wrote a big heartfelt post and now I can't seem to see it. Will this post appear if I press submit? Am I talking only to myself?

    I finally got around to finishing the Key to Time box set.
    Here are some thoughts:

    1. The Ribos Operation – lived up to my memories; atmospheric; a great supporting cast of character actors; a good set up for the season and an excellent introduction to Romana. I love stories set in the snow – seems to be so rare in Doctor Who. 7 out of 10
    2. The Pirate Planet – another great cast and good to see Doctor Who doing some pure science fiction for a change; over-the-top but pure Douglas Adams. 7 out of 10
    3. The Stones of Blood – My personal favourite – atmospheric; tense; a menace in the English countryside – this is what Doctor Who always does best. Great use of k-9, for a change. Tense, gothic and then a complete change for the second half of the story. 9 out of 10
    4. The Androids of Tara – another favourite – much better than I remembered it as a kid. Doctor Who swashes its buckles! Fab. A great sword fight (which actually shows the Doctor learning something for a change rather than already being proficient in everything. Some great comic relief from k-9. Only drawback is that here the use of Romana (in my opinion) begins to suffer from runnyscream-itis. 8 out of 10.
    5. The Power of Kroll – cheesey but fun. What the help was the opera singing bit all about. Still, the Seeds of Doom did it better. 6 out of 10
    6. The Armageddon Factor – the reason why it took me so long to finish the box set. Yawn. Confusing and over-long (5 episodes long to be exact). I now remember why I didn’t like Lalla Ward that much. And the Black Guardian seemed to be an afterthought at the end of the story. It should have concentrated more on the Guardian’s attempt to steal the key, I feel. 4 out of 10.

    Overall, much better than I had expected. Good to watch 6 consecutive stories. 7 out of 10.
