Enola Holmes...meh. When I first saw it, I was desperate for entertainment, and it had cute bits here and there, but I absolutely hated what they did to Mycroft, and on a second viewing found a lot more to hate. Moving on to an oldie next.

@TriBel You were spared then. Everything in Enola Holmes was too obvious, cutesie (whilst also being angry), and just didn't fit the world built by Doyle. I think Cavill and Claflin should have switched roles, and I don't see why anyone in the Holmes family had to become a villain for the sake of the narrative. It was clunky at best. What specifically turned you off?

IDK. Lack of patience...crap acting? My attention span is very short. 😏 TBH, I'm not a great fan of Doyle's actual stories. I'm much more interested in the various types of detective fiction and the relationship between form, content and the social/urban fabric...the detective as flaneur (the flaneur's the precursor to Poe's detective)*. Sherlock (particularly Study in Pink) was a tour de force: how do we know the virtual city; how do we cognitively map the city (oh duh! With mobile phones)? I was hoping this would give me some insight into the female flaneur (a rare figure because "street walker" has different connotations for a woman). It might have done...IDK...I didn't get much further than "Yawn. This is crap and 11 was better in Stranger Things". 😒 😄

*Yup...I'm that boring.

Doctor Who. I am watching the 4 movies they have done between S4-S5. I do wonder why they did 4 movies between theses two seasons while usually it’s just one special Christmas movie. David TENNANT is fabulous as the doctor. I get spoiled few days ago and I know he will leave and the doctor will have a new visage( it was predictable though) but honestly ? I love David TENNANT so much that I can’t see anyone else in his place playing the doctor. I’m afraid I will loose all interest in the series without him.
Also unpopular opinion : until now I think Donna Noble is the best doctor’s companion. I prefer her to rose or Martha.

I think because they waited an extra year between seasons that time. :)

I’m impatient to meet Clara as everyone seem to like her 😀. Right now I’m watching « the end of time part 1 ». Tonight I think I will start season 5 and maybe i will see Clara if she is the next companion. I think « end of time » this is where at the end David Tennant at the end is going to leave and let his place to the next actor 😬😑. Did you like David Tennant as the doctor watching the show ? If yes was it difficult for you to continue to watch without him ?

Clara is the worst. She's so annoying and thinks she knows better than the Doctor.

I think I'm in the minority who prefer Smith to Tennant and think Eccleston was the best of the modern doctors.

Smith had some big shoes to fill and he did it well, Capaldi not so much.

It’s done ✔. I have finished THE END OF TIME PART 1/2. Here is the new doctor ( I mean the new doctor for me where I am on the show) :
Is it him Smith ?


I have the question about « the end of time » I just saw : who is that woman that talked to donna’s grandfather ? The show seem to told us that it was Donna herself but I’m not sure I understand correctly the things...

Another question, for a mod this time : I have problems now to upload image and that it appears like in the previous message before mine.. what do I need to do?

I went to YouTube, to watch some clips video football. Just arrived on the page, I saw this :

I got spoiled by YouTube 😬. How ? How is it possible ? I didn’t even tape doctor who on the research Barr once on YouTube, not even one time. I just did it on google, not YouTube ! It is freaking me out !! 😱. They know I’m watching Doctor who, and now I see publicity on Doctor who everywhere every time. I just saw a publicity to buy all the box DVD, on Facebook !! 😬 They spy on me !! It is terrible, they know I’m watching DW on streaming services 😱. It’s over for me. I’m a dead man. I’m sure they even know I’m writing this right now. What a world we live in ! I’m seriously freaking.. I have zero secrets from the government people I know nothing on them.. they know everything about me.

I'm sure the UK media can tell you everything you want to know about Macron. 😏 They're obsessed with him and Angela Merkel - and not in a good way! 😄Worse is when you have a phone conversation with someone and then get purchase suggestions from Amazon. I think Alexa listens in. 😵
