    I dont mind Dr Who. I grew up with both Jon Pertweee and Tom Baker. Didnt watch any after that til Christopher Eccleston. Have only seen episode 1 of Jodie Whitaker, I kind of find her annoying.

    My hubby is a big Dr Who fan and has every epsidoe/box set there is apart from Jodie Whitaker. He feels the writers have really gone too far in the whole 'lets pander to every viewers wishes'. He also finds the language used to be quite slangish and as he's a 50 year old man he cannot relate to how she speaks ie 'come along fam'

    We still have season one on our sky box and he has only watched the first couple of episodes.

    absolutely fine my friend.

    sure when corona calms down I'll be called for a diabetic check up. I'd like physical appointment as my athritis is bad but guess that has to wait.

    How's life up north? pretty messy here the past few days due to a couple of storms hitting us

    loved the karate kid movies as a teen. Im not so sure I'd like it nowadays as an adult but I will probably give it a go. Stepson mentioned it to me over the weekend but then his tv viewing is totally different to mine.

    Hope u find something else to watch

    The Umbrella Academy is a comic written by gerard way of my chemical romance, netflix bought the rights to make it into a seris, its about a billionaire industrialist who adopts 7 children who he knows have special powers. he trains them to be super heros. I dont want to say too much because of spoilers but its very good :)
