    It's written by Chris Chibnall, who also wrote Broadchurch, which won a Best Drama BAFTA.

    Shame you didn't enjoy it, but life would be dull if we all liked the same things.

    As I said earlier , I thought the trailer was epic , though I did think the dog character looked a bit naff , but on watching the episode , Karvanista grew on me and I think he's going to be a great character , I thought Dan was great , a lot of the new characters look really interesting , It looks like Yaz is really going to shine this series  and the episode built up to a really exciting cliff hanger , and there's so many questions I want answered .

    wife has just stuck it on on catch up- john bishop - bungle from rainbow - the lass that runs round panting and cant act still playing the dr - stinks of writing by people who have been taught to write rather than natural writers- unbearable woke rubbish galore - if ideas have run out then please say so - this is utter garbage 

    If you think its garbage , then that's your prerogative , but what was woke about this episode ? was it because there was a disabled woman in it? or was it because somebody was working in a food bank ? I'm just curious .

    Was Ryan Reynolds there?

    A few clubs in that league with potential for big crowds. Notts County, Stockport, Grimsby, Chesterfield. Possibly not that big, though.

    Grimsby v Notts County was 7,213. Stockport got over 7,000 last time out at home.

    It will be interesting to see what the crowd is when Notts County play Chesterfield towards the end of the season , particularly if both are fighting for promotion .

    10,000 crowd for a National League match, Wrexham vs Torquay,  incredible. Is this a record for the fifth tier.

    Its great , the Hollywood take over has certainly flicked a switch and sparked fresh enthusiasm into the club .Also , Chesterfield , Grimsby and Notts County are getting very good gates as well .

    I really enjoyed the RTD era , but preferred the Moffat era , particularly with Capaldi as the Doctor , but I think a lot of RTD fans will be in for a bit of a shock , I don't expect his new era to be anything like his old one , he's written a couple of cracking drama's over the last few years(Years and Years , Its a sin) and I'm really looking forward to see what he has to offer . 

    Its interesting to see that Bad Wolf Productions will co-produce the show with BBC studios , BWP was founded by Julie Gardner , who worked on DW while RTD was there and Jane Tranter , who , I think was head of drama at the BBC when DW was brought back .

    It looks like Sony Pictures are about to buy out Bad Wolf Productions , what that means for Doctor Who , who knows .

    Toulouse may not have  quite as good a squad of players as Toronto but they are a better TEAM Whats not to like about the brand of Rugby League they play.I think they will do better in SL next year than we would have done as they only need a handful of players to be good enough to stay up.France were a good Rugby League Playing country until all the money and players were diverted to Union.

    I think you're spot on , while Toronto had a better squad , Toulouse are a better team , I think that's because Toulouse are coached better .

    I had a clown from St Helens sat next too me also, he was another one who couldn’t handle his ale. I think he thought he was a Nigel Farage type but a fat version. He told me too “stand up for Jerusalem”, i asked him why and he said “because you should, and i hope you know all the lyrics. If you don’t have a look on google now”. So i sat down for the Jerusalem thing because before the game Saints fan’s were singing oh sit down. 
    As Catalans were coming off the pitch after their warmup the said drunk said “do you see them there(pointing at Catalans), cowards they surrendered in 1945 ?”. I said “bloody hell i know i heard about that on Allo Allo”, he replied “ha yeah i know the soft b*******”. 
    This makes me wonder why some fan’s have too make utter tools of themselves with getting blitzed before a game, aren’t they better waiting till after the game. 

    Surely this wasn't a Saints fan , it must have been a Fev fan , surely , anyway . I wouldn't stand up to sing anything that I didn't like , Jerusalem is a very boring hymn and I haven't got a clue what any of the words are .

    A show that can change the entire appearance and personality of its leading character on a regular basis can pretty much do anything.  I think the format is indestructible, but isn't guaranteed to appeal to every fan, all of the time, as the last few years have illustrated.

    The Jodie Whittaker era will grow to be more appreciated in future, I hope (personally, I've enjoyed it).

    The Sylvester McCoy era, for example, has been more positively reassessed since the time it was originally broadcast, and the (ahem) 'Rose' tinted spectacles that fans now look back on RTD's original relaunch of the show, even though he was much criticised at the time for making it 'too soapy', including broad comedic aspects like burping bins and farting aliens, and some cop out endings to big story arcs. And look what he did with the Cybermen!

    RTD binned off Gallifrey and the Time Lords in the Time War in his previous stint, because he knew that newer viewers wouldn't have much of a clue about any of that stuff anyway, so he obviously doesn't have any qualms about ignoring or rewriting the show's existing history if it suits where he wants to take it.

    I think he'll be pitching the show at a wider, more general TV audience again, rather than serving its existing fanbase which just isn't big enough to sustain it as a mainstream ratings success. 

    Whatever he does, I'm sure it won't be too long before some fans are demanding his head on a plate!! 

    If The Timeless Child is some parallel Universe type story and Gallifrey hasn't been destroyed , then it will be interesting to see what RTD does , as you say , he destroyed Gallifrey , Moffat brought it back , Chibnall destroyed it and could possibly be bringing it back , what will RTD do ? will he destroy it again !

    Hopefully RTD will retcon the Timeless Child nonsense. Andrew Cartmel did have plans for the Doctor to be revealed as an ancient being like Rassilon or Omega but cancellation meant nothing came of it. I  hope  it transpires that The Master was telling porkies and The Doctor doesn't predate the Time Lords, that just seems plain wrong.

    What is it you don't like about The Timeless Child ? is it the fact that there are a lot of pre-Hartnell incarnations of The Doctor ? or is it the the fact that The Doctor isn't from Gallifrey and that all the Time Lords and their regenerative powers descended from her ? or is it both? Personally , I'm intrigued to see how the story pans out , and what or whom , are The Division .

    It is a surprise, and a risk for RTD to go back.

    Expectations will be sky high.

    At least he knows what he is getting himself into, and it might give those of us who just enjoy watching the show a break from the chorus of doom who have spent the past few years pulling it to bits at every opportunity. 🤞

    There have been three hugely dominant players in the game for a long time now. But the next generation seems to be losing the awe that Federer, Nadal and Djokovic were once held in. In the women's game, you often felt Serena Williams had the match won as soon as she walked onto the court, such was the dominant presence she had in the sport.

    Exciting new blood in the men's and women's game is great news.

    I think we can safely say that Federer's grand slam winning days are over , Nadal has dropped down the pecking order as far as hard courts are concerned , his best bet is still clay , but he's no where near as dominant and will have 2 or 3 players as serious challengers , as for Djokovic , he'll contend on all surfaces , but Wimbledon will be his best bet .

  12. What a performance from Raducanu , coming all the way through qualifying to win the trophy , Fernandez played very well and was a very difficult opponent , but ER just edged it . Just looking at her , she seems to have the perfect all round game , she has a great forehand ,exceptional backhand , particularly her backhand DTL , great return of serve , exceptional movement , a good drive volley and the ability under pressure , and for me , there's still room for improvement , I just hope the media allow her to lose a few match's early on in tournaments and not get on her back , lets face it , Wimbledon , next year , is going to be absolutely mad .

    On to the men's final , I was a bit torn between Djokovic creating a little bit of history and Medvedev winning his first slam , but there's no doubt the Russian ran out deserved winner , lets face it , he's been knocking on the door for a couple of years now .

    Raducanu was born in Toronto,  if GJ was supporting Fernández,  fair do's,  perhaps he's Canadian!

    The point I'm making is that this attitude can hurt people and it annoys me. I was born here but I'm from a Polish background,  and our community and others do so much to integrate. My nephews have been taunted at school about not being properly British,  Raducanu is British by any sensible criteria. 

    In the 1980s I went to school with 2 polish kids and later on went to work with a couple of blokes of Polish descent , in all cases , the only give away that they were Polish was their surnames ,but when you spoke to them , while they were very proud of their Polish roots , they considered themselves British .

    I thought he meant the other finalist - 19 year old Fernandez from Canada. Although I'm not sure why he wants her to win instead of Raducanu.

    Anyway, more curious to me is how the world number 73 has reached the final. I haven't been following this tournament, nor have I followed women's tennis closely for many years (not since early 90's really), so have no idea about the top players. Were they just knocked out, or were they missing because of Covid or something?

    Fernandez beat the No 2 , 3 , 5 and 16 seeds on her way to the final , Raducanu beat No 11 ( Olympic gold medal winner from Tokyo) and No 17 seed , the No 1 seed was beaten by Shelby Rodgers , who was then trounced by Raducanu a round later .
