Wow. And all these years I thought the Bee Gees were Australian.

But then, I only recently learned that the Young brothers of AC/Dc weren't born in Australia, either.

Presumably for the same reason you didn't list a certain somewhat well known dramatist...

Black Sabbath!

Deep Purple!

Judas Priest!

Iron Maiden!

Venom!

Motorhead!


And a further point of triva: the first Dirk Gently book was largely a reworking of two of Adams' earlier Dr. Who scripts, specifically "City of Death" and "Shada" (never aired). Check 'em out. They will feel very familiar.

As far as the good doctor's scarf is concerned, he created the classic paradox and unravelled it as his mummy finished knitting it.

OKAY, it's time!! The U.S. season 2 two-hour finale is upon us! So i am crazy ape-crap excited; heard it was all that and more.
So, I cannot find the conversation that folks were posting (either here or on the Pavvy) about the dialog going on between the Cybermen and the Daleks. Specifically about it possibly being cut since commercials are more important than plot development.
Does anyone know where/when those postings took place? I just wanna refresh my memory....and see if any spoilers were tossed accidentally in the process. :twisted:
Yes, i also will turn to the last page of a book, read it, then shelve it. When i read it later, i won't remember that ending, but that delicate, sweet frisson of realization, of understanding, of "getting it", is addictive. A terrible habit, i know. One of my few vices.
I'm trying to use the search fields for our board, but i don't seem to be getting anywhere. Please don't go searching on my behalf or anything, just wondering if anyone remembers when this was mentioned.
Thanks,
Paul

I cannot recall if this posting took place, but it would not surprise me a bit. CBC tended to cut unimportant stuff, like cliff hanger resolution.

(not a problem now thanks to a certain Weblander)

However, I will say, that having not read ANY spoilers at all, and having NO IDEA what to expect, that moment when the Daleks emerge. . .wow, probably the best TV moment of my life.

it's sad, but I've moved the sofa so I CAN hide behind it, there's also a comfy cushion ( I don't see the need to be frightened and have sore knees)

Upon Gynneth's & David's Brit Best from months ago I would also add Catherine Tate.

Of course. What other Callow did you have in mind?

The trailer for the brand new spanking season of Doctor Who (premiering March 31st) is up and running at the BBC website: www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho.

Quite a teaser it is.

- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.
