( :D I want a Calvin & Hobbes T-Shirt!!!! )

Anyway, Pfhorrest, I also thought that the Doctor who died in the Impossible Astronaut was a ganger Doctor.

But River and the Doctor touch making time move forward... I still can't figure that out.

The Doctor said in the Pandorica episode, "The Universe is big, bizzare, rediculous, and sometimes impossible things just happen and we call them miracles..." Of course that's not the case since everyone knew why time moved forward when they touch.

Do you also want to be killed, meet Death in the afterlife, find out it was you from the future who killed you, become the Death of Going Back In Time And Murdering Yourself, be sent back in time by Death to kill yourself, instead warn yourself about you coming back to kill yourself, causing several universes to be destroyed simultaneously at several different times, then go on the run from Death, eventually have Death catch up to you, only to send you back in time to 1943 Berlin with Sir Isaac Newton in his personal TARDIS, so you can kill yourself and set things right, only to be killed by yourself instead, so that Hitler's disembodied brain can be put into your body in order for him to die properly by choking on a giant frog, thus setting history back to normalcy?

Cause that's what comes with that shirt.

That reminds me of an odd dream I had a year or two ago.

I dreamt I was walking through the parking lot of the nearby shopping center when the Back to the Future music swelled and a DeLorean appeared in a bright flash of light, drifting to a stop next to me trailing fire. The passenger door opened and Christopher Lloyd in character as Doctor Emmett Brown leaned over and shouted "Get in!" I stood there stunned and stammered with surprise, "Christopher Lloyd!?" He replied "I stole it off the Universal Studios back lot! GET IN!"

I did so, and the DeLorean took off into the air, attracting stares from all the other shopping center patrons in the lot. Then it engaged its cloaking field, and apparently also it's Somebody Else's Problem field, as everyone in the parking lot suddenly shrugged and went about their business.

Meanwhile we rushed in the flying DeLorean out over the ocean, almost skimming the surface of the water. I looked between the seats and saw that in place of an ordinary back seat or a Flux Capacitor, there was the interior of the alien timeship from Flight of The Navigator, which you will note is much larger than a car. I did a double-take between that and the front of the car, confirming that we actually were still in a DeLorean as far as you could tell looking forward.

I stared, mouth agape, at Christopher Lloyd, as though to ask for an explanation. He explained, "It's bigger on the inside." I replied, after a pause, "Which 'Doctor' are you supposed to be again?"

Maybe I'm jumping the gun, but a new Christmas special is coming out soon.

The Doctor, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

I've heard that also, but I don't want anybody to quote me on that.

I't would be logical to assume that the Christmas Special is quiet literally "The Doctor, The Witch, & the Wardrobe,"
but then again... when has Doctor Who been logical...

It was quite simple, nor was it truly a spin-off of The Lion, The Which, and the Wardrobe, but I thought it was okay. I wasn't disappointed by it not being like C.S. Lewis's book, I'm no fan of his stuff.

Doctor Who rules all. Too bad the newer ones are so... fanciful. I always liked the episodes from the 60's and 70's better. [MGrin]

Overimaginative.

The problem with new Doctor Who is it's producer, Stephen Moffat. He was a Whovian back in his boyhood, so all the new episodes are rather... fan fiction-ish. They seem to portray the Doctor as a omniscient being who's only agenda is to save the universe. In the good old days, the Doctor was a flawed, eccentric outlaw, who used his superior wit to deceive and defeat his adversaries. It was implied that the TARDIS guided him towards potential disasters, and the only thing that prevented him from immediately leaving was his curiosity and sense of moral justice. He wasn't a TV genius action hero, he was just some 750 year old college dropout who stole a Time machine.

Sorry if I went off on a tangent there.

There used to be a guy on youtube with every episode from the 70's, but I think the BBC got to him.
