Maybe Sly's codpiece could have a cameo?

And the 2010 Wolfman was pretty good too.  I'd love to know who these twatty critics are who give decent movies a slating.  Dracula Untold wasn't perfect but it was still a good film also.

They made a good Dracula flick (Dracula Untold) but because that didn't get the number 1 spot or whatever and make quite as much money as they wanted they're now making the usual shit with actors like Tom Cruise and Depp.   

I haven't got much hope for these.

I didn't think people still went around saying or thinking "No sex please, we're British."

The occupant of the vault may have been revealed, but this is Moffat here, I don't trust him to be that straightforward... the reveal was pretty understated and the vault has yet to be opened - I think there's still a surprise in store...

I'm only saying "no sex please" when it comes to Dr Who.   The show used to be perfectly fine before without it.

ABCWarbot, what do you find so wrong with a group of people getting some representation in media?

Nothing.   I've already said I've got nothing against a gay character here and there.    My main problem is when it involves established characters like the Doctor and Master.

Dude, get outside, breath some fresh air, see mental health therapist, because you sound paranoid as hell.

I'm not paranoid but we must all watch out for the shape shifting reptiles who are trying to take over our planet

I'm sorry, the idea that "straight" kissing has been introduced to Doctor Who to balance "LGBT" kissing so fewer people will complain IS the most paranoid and ridiculous thing I've heard...! That's hilarious!  :lol:

I don't care if it sounds hilarious or ridiculous.   I bet there's quite a bit of truth to it.   The old show very rarely (if ever) had anything like that in it and some people at the BBC know that if they just put gay people kissing each other in the show it would be too obvious so I wouldn't put it past them to up the straight stuff to make it not so obvious.

The phrase you're looking for isn't 'gay agenda', it's 'human rights'. And that's something I will happily push down your throat all day long.

But luckily this time you really are in an oppressed minority (of antedilluvian fools), so I'll leave you be, mainly because I'd say we're a jellybean away from this thread bring locked, as is the fate of many Dr Who threads across time and space.

I note the irony that while I've been celebrating progress towards decency in my own little state on this thread, our most famous gay pub has been defaced with swastikas and hate phrases. Happily everyone agrees the lone scrote responsible is a waste of skin.

So Dr Who's about promoting human rights now?   Maybe this whole "gay agenda" thing started off because I dunno.........maybe Russell T Davies actually stated he had a "gay agenda" with the show.

And he did too. 

He actually said that on an interview on News 24.   So it's not too surprising that people started talking about a gay agenda in the show and not too much of a stretch to think it's been carried on through the Moffat era too.  And it was mainly because some people regarded the Doctor as some gay icon fantasy not for promoting "tolerance" and "human rights".

When I were a lad, 'tabletop' used to mean wargaming, where you really did need a table. These days, it's often used to refer to roleplaying games. I've no idea how this came about, but I think it's intended to distinguish RPGs from computer games. Roleplaying in a game is also a rather confusing concept for a lot of people, so I suppose some game companies might shy away from using the word.

We used to call them 'pen and paper games', cos that was all you needed. I've used a phone app to handle dice rolls while travelling, but I have to be honest: the physicality of rolling odd polyhedrons or buckets of regular d6s is a big part of the fun for me.

Insurrection does indeed make no sense in terms of the main Dredd strip. Luckily it's a brilliant series with an even more brilliant spin-off, and so this minor detail doesn't matter.

If you want to rationalise it (and I wouldn't recommend it), Space Is Big: what seems like an enormous fleet is actually what you need to keep hundreds of colonies spread across the galaxy safe and in line: they don't show up elsewhere cos they are usually scattered across many parsecs. The SJS gets ths job because skullz r cool Justice Dept and its Marshals are the de facto governments of these worlds, and keeping Judges toeing the city line is very much their thing.
