    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Yes I agree, the first episode with William Hartnell as the Doctor was the best. (But then everyone's favourite Doctor is the one they grew up with.)

    Haven't watched since about halfway through the David Tennancy of the role (see what I did there ?)
    It just became too juvenile, too silly and too quickly cut for my liking.
    Kids have the attention span of a goldfish these days and it's reflected in the editing of a lot of TV shows these days.

    Gimme the days of a three take movie like Rope every time ..

    Exactly what is wrong, Moffat and co being way too clever for their own good, though it was that other self proclaimed smart ---- that started it going so silly, Russell T Davis.

    I do like Cumberbatch and Freeman as a duo - they're the most watchable pair since Fry and Laurie in (the definitive) Jeeves and Wooster.
    I like Blake 7, and UFO. First season of Space 1999 is sensible, and sober, second is mostly silly, though Catherine Schell is nice. Never got PG Woodhouse, not for me.

    ITYM Ian Carmichael and Dennis Price. Laurie is great as Wooster, but Fry is all wrong as Jeeves.
