Years and Years was exceptional. But then, so is Russell T Davies, and I’m looking forward to his return to Doctor Who after the dross of the current writing team.

And please, please, please can they get back to the original idea and (sorry don't want to offend anyone) let it be a male doctor. We've not watched it since Peter Capaldi but enjoy all the reruns 🙂

Sometimes we all worry just like the time I couldn't remember if I had taken my 

anxiety tablet ..Mrs Kalos asked " Are you worried about it ?" :classic_unsure::classic_wacko::classic_smile:

If you weren't you knew you'd had it am guessing 😉

I remember watching the very first episode of Dr Who with William Hartnell, to me he was the  Doctor. I kept watching until Tom Baker took over the role from Jon Pertwee. After that I lost interest as I didn't like the 'Dr' that he portrayed.

I sometimes worry that I'm not worrying enough, but then again how much worry is enough?🤔

If I worry too much then I get worried because I might be over worrying, and that could be a worry, so I try not to worry about it. 🥴😁

an old Irish saying about worrying.

There are only two things in life to worry about: if you are well or if you are sick. If you are well, there is nothing to worry about.

If you are sick, there are only two things to worry about: if you will get better or if you will die. If you get better, there is nothing to worry about. 
If you die, there are only two things to worry about: if you will go to Heaven or if you will go to Hell. If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about. If you go to Hell, you will be too busy catching up with old friends that you won’t have time to worry.

So why worry?

My first dr was Jon Pertwee - just a little younger than you 🙂 🙂 

Loved the new Dr Who remakes though and loved Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant (ahhh), Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi (though he was let down by terrible writing and scripts for his amazing talent). Then we went to the next Dr and we haven't watched since. 

 

Have to say, we once visited Cardiff Dr Who exhibition and had the chance to visit the Tardis set --- met a REAL Weeping Angel and set foot IN the TARDIS. Happy days .... and yes, we are big kids at heart 🙂 🙂 

 

We are Trekkies too ................ and have met William Shatner and Walter Koenig ----- Star Trek convention to celebrate the 50th anniversary BUT we didn't wear a costume !!!!!!

I was 16 when Dr Who began, way back in 1963.

You should have worn a costume Presto, I'm sure you would have made a lovely Uhura.

I was born just a month before Dr Who aired so we are the same age !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Re wearing a costume from the Original Series ........... mmmmmm .... once upon a time perhaps, but I have inherited by dad's short, fat stumpy legs (not hairy as in Morecambe and Wise) so will stick to not wearing the 1960s uniforms for now ...... somethings are best left hidden !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For any of you who might be interested (!), how about giving CYRDLE a go?


LOL, You had me there!  But I will recommend to a good friend of mine who is from Anglesey.  I’m on the look out for smart word games since I finally completed Alphabetty.

I have quite enjoyed Jodie Whitaker as The Doctor.

 

There are rumours that David Tennant may return to the role, that would be an interesting regeneration!

One of our grandchildren was in Dr Who with Peter Capaldi, he was very good with the young cast members in that episode spent a lot of time with them, giving advice.

I’ve no problems at all with Jodie Whittaker. Just the overcomplex, ludicrous scripts and the gang of 4/5 whatever replacing the Dr Who plus companion format. I think she’s been shafted by the writers, and I’ll be pleased to see the return of Russell T Davies.

 

Watched most episodes since that first one in 1963 - remember rushing home to watch it - and it’s gone through good and bad patches, but my wife’s keener on it now than I am.

 

Richard Ayoade is also a possible. He’d be good. Quirky is good. I’d cast Matt Lucas!

I like Matt Lucas, he would definitely be a quirky choice but, and I don't know why, I hate him presenting the Bake Off. 

 

Weather here today is just so grey again. However I have a very unexpected and puzzling visitor, my SIL. Suppose all will be revealed later.

Times have changed,if a Dalek booked a cruise now he'd have to have a disabled cabin.How else would he get in the shower to wash his raygun.

Things have moved on - they can levitate and fly now, thanks to CGI!
 

Funniest I ever saw (side-splitting!) were Victor Lewis-Smith’s daleks on TV Offal. But I won’t link to that here because it’s absolutely inappropriate and unsuitable. 😇

A fair day here weather wise, had a nice walk before breakfast.

To me Dr Who is what it is, I have always watched it and likely always will. A bit like Star Wars and Star Trek some are good some not so, plus we always watch the multitude of spin offs too. Whatever rings your bells.
