    It's in the episode Lord Parker's 'Oliday.

  • Air Date for Torchwood S3   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Well, when the BBC aired the 4th series of "Doctor Who" there was about a month "lag time" from then to when it aired in the US (on Sci-Fi).

    That is to be expected, but I wish could get a simultaneous broadcast like they did for "The Five Doctors" when it came out. They did that specially for the 20th anniversary - so why can't they do it now?Frown

    The mystery continues here. Though at least we are narrowing it down. I am stumped on why it is being triggered when voting from the side bar block. Hmm.. 

    I will try to look further into this matter.

    Thanks and sorry about the trouble.

  • Happy Anniversary to Us! 24 Years of Time and Space.   5 years 10 weeks ago

    I know we havent used such terms in quite some time, but I am feeling nostalgic!!  We should consider having an old traditional ”meeting” someplace on a Sunday to celebrate.   At the very least, we should have one in August or September (which ever coincides with the first monthly meeting at Rockville Centre) Maybe even in the same spot!!!  Wish I could have made it to the gathering in the city, but as you said....  weekday and all (and at night, something we never did in the days of meetings)  TTFN   Tim

  • Air Date for Torchwood S3   5 years 10 weeks ago

    That also puts it the "week" of July 4-10, which means it'll air in the UK two weeks before BBC America.

    And here we all had our hopes pinned on their airing each episode the same day in both countries. Yell

     

    And the spam filter thinks my post could be spam! YellYell

    Glad it worked.

    I knew it worked for me so I thought I'd suggest it to you.

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Troy is correct!

    If I choose polls at the top, get the list and select the poll I want to vote in, my vote is registered if it appears in the central column, the spam filter is triggered if attempt to vote from the sidebars.

     

    Mystery solved (kind of).

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    I don't know if this makes a difference or not but when the poll is in the right hand column, I get the message about triggering the spam filter.

    Look in the center column and place your vote there, for some reason this works fine for me. The poll is usually repeated in the news columns.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Note to whoever is working on this problem:

    I am using Internet Explorer 8 and have the same problem if I vote in the right-hand column.

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    I am using Microsoft Explorer v6.0 on Windows XP w service pack3.

    I do log in from different computers at different times of the day.

     

    Just tried it on my home computer also XP but with IE V7, same thing happened but

    I read the next line, it said 'validation error'. Maybe this helps.

    This time and the first time the problem occured  I was using the poll section in the right hand bar. But the second time I think the poll was in the left hand side bar, though I cannot find a poll there currently.

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    It is damn peculiar to say the least. I am still unsure why this is happening to you, Doctor Whoovie. The spam filter is not even monitoring the voting (how could a yes or no vote be considered spam anyhow?). 

    What browser and what platform are you using? 

    Did it happen when tried to vote in the side block (right side bar block) or in the middle column or in the poll section? Does it happen no matter where you tried to vote?

    I am just trying to figure out what could be cause. 

    Of course, here at the Gallifreyan Embassy, like the United States and Iran, we believe every vote does count. Wink

     

  • The Keeper of Traken   5 years 10 weeks ago

    I don't know whether or not you noticed but the cliffhangers for the story are a little different than the usual stories. They are more subtle and indirect.

     

    For example in episode 1:

      the counsel calls the Keeper and the keeper was attacked, but the threat was to imply that the Doctor and Adric were the threat and not a direct confrontation.

     

    In episode 2:

       we have the Doctor, Adric and Tremas captured and Kassia comes to the Melkur and the cliffhanger was Melkur telling her that "This is just the beginning". again not a direct threat but a subtle one.

     we have a similar cliffhanger in episode 3 as well.

  • io9 Publishes "Spoiler" Image   5 years 10 weeks ago

    The Sun reports a story with the same picture, but the focus of the story is Timothy Dalton appearing in the show.

     

    Here is a link to the sun story:

    I was logged in and able to post the thread reply above immediately.

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Stewart,

     

    Were you logged in when you clicked the Vote button?

     

    Taras

  • Spam Filter   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Okay, so I noticed a new poll today about spoilers.

    Same thing happened as before, it said that my submission had triggered the spam filter and would not be accepted.

    On the previous poll, it is possible that I had already voted and got back to the page using the previous command on my browser, thus causing some conflict.

    This time however, it was the first time I saw the poll and the first time I tried to vote, so no potential excuse for the 'bad behavior'

  • io9 Publishes "Spoiler" Image   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Well since his name is Simm and it was (if you watched the confidential) obvious that most of that charactization was a directorial choice....  Get over it, very tired of your default reply.

  • io9 Publishes "Spoiler" Image   5 years 10 weeks ago

    Well as long as you've got an open mind, that's the main thing...Innocent

    It's Simm, by the way, not Simms.

    The line up looks cracking to me, but then I like RTD's stuff. Arise Lord Davies of Mumbles say I.
