    So Neil, when it comes to what James and I said do you agree on our take more ? . I think we were more kind to that episode I believe. Wait until you hear the review of the Long Game, very interesting options on that one.... Smile

    Cheers,
    Russel


    Yes, yes, I definitely fall more in the James/Russel view of the episode.

    Now if those NYC boys liked Long Game better than Dalek...well, I just don't know anymore...

    Ah I thought so. Well without spoiling too much lets just say we had a good discussion of Long Game and poor little Adam did not fair so well....
    Wink I was definately glad to be able to join them LIVE for that review.

    Cheers,
    Russel

    [Quote  by:  Abersoch] You do NOT make tea by using bags with drawstrings and dangling the things in a cup of water - that would be like serving an instant coffee to someone from America. It is just "not done".


    Tea can be made in a pot with several bags, with or without strings. Strings are unimportant. There are countries in this world where they actually *grow* tea, have successfully enjoyed and consumed it for many hundreds of years and are not obsessed with this sort of minutiae.

    The British are no more the final word on how tea can/should be consumed than Americans are regarding coffee. There are many countries out there that do both differently and often better.

    For the record I use loose tea but I'm not going to go around suggesting that there's something wrong with people who do things differently than me.

    [Quote  by:  Abersoch] From a tea connoiseur's point of few, using a bag in a cup is a bit like eating your dinner with your fingers instead of being bothered to use a knife and fork.


    I do that sometimes. Especially with fried fish.

    [Quote Hmm, condensed milk you say... Well, I suppose it would give the tea a sweeter taste and you wouldn't need to use too much - about a teaspoon should do. They tend to use that on ships because there is less fresh milk around.


    Growing up in Newfoundland, that was why we used condensed milk. Fresh milk was rare, and expensive. But we're not talking about sweetened condensed milk... just condensed milk. I still use about a half-teaspoon of sugar per cup.


    [Quote Mind you, at least you didn't say you use UHT. If you had, then I would have had no choice but to take the next plane over there and slap you silly. Wink
    Abersoch


    Well, not sure what UHT is, so... I guess I'm safe. (Unless that's another word for something common, like torch, or jumper, or bin liner... or for that matter... shag carpet.) Razz

    How great is it that we can be discussing the merits of Doctor Who episodes, technical podcast issues and proper tea brewing techniques in one convenient forum?

    I must admit that, at this point, i am seriously considering buying a proper teapot...

    As I said earlier in this thread (I believe it was this thread), the reason I didn't give Dalek more TARDIS groans was because I liked it... it felt disappointed because I felt it suffered from being condensed into a 42 minute episode. The story in my opinion demanded more time to flesh itself out. It is a shame really because I was really excited about it and I think it would have done quite well if it was only given the time it needed.

    You can read what I wrote previously here for a more thorough explanation.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I agree with you there about the condensing of the episode Louis. I think it could have been a 2 parter or longer episode for such a main baddie. I guess maybe the producers thought that people would get the rest of the Dalek fill near the end of series 1.

    Condensed milk... condensed Dalek, it's all the same to me. I like both.

    Well... I am still a New York City boy... 'cause you can take the boy out of the city, but not the city out of the boy.

    I never would but it's quite popular in Hong Kong.

    My point on all of this is that all sorts of people in different places have different customs and different ways of doing things and I think it's unfortunate for anyone to say that this or that is simply wrong and their way is the only right way. I think James gave some very helpful tips on how to make a particular style of tea and a number of other helpful comments were made. It's a big world and there's room for lots of preferences and tastes.

    Don't trust him. Put condensed milk in tea. Just not sweetened condensed milk.

    I prefer the 2%.

    Well, not sure what UHT is, so... I guess I'm safe.

    It's Ultra Heat Treated milk also known as "longlife", dosn't need to kept cool prior to opening. Typically sold in one litre cardboard and foil boxes.

    Mmmmmm, I've been away for a few days and just got back to read the forums. Now I'm gagging for a cuppa and a full English brekky!!! - With extra hash browns and black pudding. Gorgeous.

    James - Yorkshire Tea is indeed a fine cuppa. It is blended by the Bettys people. As a visitor to York I'm sure you know all about Bettys Tearooms. Wink
