Also remember that Spilsbury was involved in that terrible night of Tweets some time back where many of the professional fans were perceived to be mocking fandom about the missing episodes. I don't...

That's the bit that I think is often overlooked. The very nature of the relationship between Scotland and the UK would completely change upon independence. It won't be business as usual but with...

Actually in the event of an independant Scotland without currency union then it would make a lot of sense to move the workforce south of the border. Scotland would then be a foreign country to the UK...

Last year was a great year for stocks and perhaps they overperformed so this year has been a slow, gradual reverse.

But the way I was seeing things is this. The markets are going to be volatile...

Which means the markets still think it will be a "No".

It's a shame because it's actually not a bad game. It's still a WoW-clone like pretty much every mmo since 2005 but it's a good one.

There's still a market for a new MMO imo but it can't be yet...

Personally I found the RTD era full of characters I couldn't care less about. The era felt too smug and pleased with itself. That said, the Moffat era also has it's fair share of annoying characters...

It's too broad a statement and I'm surprised Darling didn't counter it better. For example, if Scotland walked away from the debt then surely they also walk away from the assets too. In particular...

Every Doctor barring McGann, Tennant and Smith were non-romantic so that's not new. The 7th Doctor was particularly ruthless towards the latter part of his era, so also nothing new. Sorry but there's...

If that what passes for "radical" in 2014 then we have very low expectations of the term. This isn't the first time the lead actor has been a) over 50 b) Scottish and c) Grumpy. It may be the first...

Well I expected to be a lone voice of disapproval on here so I'm quite surprised that, on my first visit to the forum since the new episode aired, there's so much criticism of the episode. According...

The character isn't only the product of the actor but a combination of actor and script. Matt Smith was excellent in his first series because he's a good actor and had (mostly) good scripts. The last...

And I'm now so annoyed by it all that the game will need to work extra hard to impress me if they want me as a subscriber. Frankly I'm thinking I should have just gone back to WoW.

I was thinking of returning to WoW having been away since early 2011. But I'd heard good things about this game so I brought it instead and received my copy yesterday.

However..

The faces were members of the production team such as Christopher Barry and Phillip Hinchcliffe. It was a bit of a production in-joke which got them in trouble according to the DVD commentary :)

Personally I look at it in actor/actress terms rather than story terms. The "companion" role does seem to have a very specific mandate at the BBC and they tend to hire in those terms (and normally...
