Sheís the best. Probably the only dog in the world that gets mad if you donít put her sweater on.

My dog initially hated her sweater, but my wife convinced me to basically sit in my recliner with it behind my head for a day.

Now that it smells like me, she starts howling in the morning until I put the drat thing on her.

Oh right, I forgot to put my name on the gift note! Another package is also on the way, as the note says - I usually like to have everything shipped to me first and then send them out in one package, but this year I had to resort to relying on Amazon alone. Hopefully the other half of the gift will get there before Christmas, as well!

(Honestly, the separate shipments were just a ploy to make you post two pictures of your dog instead of just one)

That story is the explanation for every explosive bout of amnesia the 8th Doctor has suffered, including the bouts that preceded this story.

Dubbed or subbed?

Neither in this case, the Sony Centre runs Original Versions of films in English without subs in their program, along with dubbed/subbed ones. But both of these in this case are just as broadcast it seems.

Wow. DEF-CON 4. One of those movies where I always loved the VHS cover in the video store but never got around to renting.


And here we have Paul McGann doing a perfect impersonation of me during last week's Steelers/Patriots game, minus the copious amounts of swearing.

In the 4th Doctor version of The Holy Terror, the people would've been worshiping The Doctor as god. BF admitted that they thought that being worshiped would've appealed to Tom.

Part 2 of my DWSS gift arrived today and I can't wait to teach Lucy all about how Sly is the best Doc and Delta and The Bannermen is actually a misunderstood masterpiece.



Seriously though, this thing is great. I love BTS stuff and my collection is sorely missing Doctor Who books. I particularly love stuff written during the same era, I actually just bought a whole stack of old Starlogs for that reason.

Excellent gifts, Forktoss, thank you very much and Merry/Happy Christmas!

As I don't have time for BF or SS I have little to add to the ongoing convo, and all I can do is keep popping in to keep counting down. I wish it was soon enough to count down in "rels," just because it's an excellent unit for telling tmie. I suppose it's approximately 350,000 rels until The Doctor Regenerates.

You did a super job wrapping things up! And I'm not just saying that because I have to!

I found a youtube account that tried to clean up unreleased Doctor Who music by trying to filter out the voices, and since that was the only source for the big Heaven Sent montage music for a long time, I can't listen to that music now without hearing Peter Capaldi's faint yelling in the background

Hello lords and ladies. Been stuck in a pocket dimension for a while. Just popped in to say I finally am getting caught up on my Doctorís BF audios since I have a longer commute now. Got through Lucie Miller / To the Death ( ) took a detour through the Tom Baker / Mary Tamm season (RIP Romana I, the best Romana ) and Iím now halfway through Dark Eyes I. My non-spoiler review :

Iím actually sorry a long break is coming up because Iím not sure Iíll be able to listen over it. Hoooooly poo poo why did I wait so long to listen to it?

Jerusalem, are you ever going to review Dark Eyes?

Is there something big going on in the televised version? Not sure. vv

I planned to after finishing the 8th Doctor Adventures but the very end of that spoiled something from the Six/Charley run so I decided to get into that and finish up Blue Forgotten Planet then jump onto that. Gotta get caught up on that and Doom Coalition so I can get started on The Time War.... oh my God there is so much Big Finish

And we're almost up to the Christmas Special and the end of Capaldi/start of Whittaker too!
