WOW! Mine will be a little longer because I will need to dismiss the lock screen and enter my PIN, it’s going to be amazing when I get my SSD. The BIOS will be the only thing slowing it down!
16 days until Christmas…
In a completely irrelevant topic (other than the fact that’s it’s to do with Christmas), the TARDIS interior is getting a redesign in the Christmas episode. What?! How can they do that? They didn’t change it that long ago… well, it was April 2010 when they last changed it, but the last TARDIS design lasted for five years. Plus, the new design looks kind of dull:
I suppose that they want to remove everything relevant to the Pond era, but that’s a lot. Will we never see River again? Will the sonic screwdriver be re-designed? Will they change the Doctor Who logo? Will they give the eleventh Doctor a different outfit (actually, we already know that’s going to happen)? I can understand that they want to show that it’s a new era, but it’s not all changed like it did when the tenth doctor and his companions left – the eleventh doctor is the same as ever, though a little scarred by the death of the Ponds.
I guess we’ll just have to see how much the BBC have changed, and whether the new TARDIS interior is as dull as the first image shows…
Anyone who has seen Series 5 might have figured who this episode focused on after just reading the title. For those of you who haven’t, the episode focuses on Amy Pond. She is known for waiting 12 years for the Doctor, then finally meets him again, then she had to wait another 2 years for the Doctor. If you thought 14 years was a long time, then you won’t like to know that, this time, she waited…

(big spoiler OVER)
The basic idea behind the story is that Amy gets trapped in a medical facility. But there are a few problems:
- The ‘kindness’ that the Handbots try to give her will kill her, because she is an alien to them
- She’s trapped in a different time stream, so it’s really hard for the Doctor and Rory to rescue her
- All this is caused by (big spoiler START) pressing the wrong button (big spoiler END)
The episode is actually one of my favourites this year (my least favourite being The Curse of the Black Spot), because it is so well written. There’s no actual alien monster that’s set it all up so they can kill people. No, it’s all made with good intentions.
The writer – Tom MacRae – has written two episodes before, Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, and they were amazing episodes. I do hope he writes again for Doctor Who.
Next week: a creepy hotel, Weeping Angels and clowns. It’s The God Complex…
I am overcome with exhilaration right now as I write my first post for “All of time and space”.
Earlier this evening, as I sat on my couch thinking about what topic to pick, a topic that would make a good first post by me, Olly my cute lil owly that usually keeps me company at home suggested I write about Doctor (W)hoo. I smiled, of course it had to be Doctor Who…. So in honor of the author of this wonderful blog – doctorwhofan98, I decided to dedicate my first post to Doctor Who.

Doctor Who and TARDIS in the background
I was reading up on Doctor Who and found some cool trivia on the series.
- TARDIS, an acronym for Time And Relative Dimension(s) in Space – a time machine which on the outside looks like a blue 1950s British police box
- It is the longest running science fiction (sci-fi) television show in the world
- Apparently, it is also the most successful sci-fi series of all time
- The character of the “Doctor” has been played by 11 actors
- Doctor Who first appeared on BBC on November 23, 1963
- This show’s audience ranges from children, adults, family, to scifi fans
- As a Time Lord, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate his body when near death
- The doctor always shares his adventures with about three companions
I am sure Doctor Who’s fan will have more cool information to share with us
If you could go back in time and have a 5 minute conversation with yourself ten years ago, what would you say? Probably:
Don’t be like you are now! Change your ways! Otherwise you will end up like me. Well, you will be me, not like me. You are me, after all. I’m a future version of you! Basically, I’m telling you to change your ways. Hang on, if you change your ways then this version of me will never even have existed. So how can I go back and tell you to change your ways? I can’t! Also, that means the current me will kind of die. No, I won’t die, they’ll be wiped from time! Forever! How sad! So I could tell you to change your ways, hopefully for the better, and mess up time forever, or I could leave it and you don’t change your ways, which you should really do. So, I’ve decided I’ll just go. Oh, wait, you already know about changing your ways. Now I’m telling you: don’t change your ways. Never, ever. Oh, no! Tell a child ‘don’t think of a pink elephant’, they’ll think of a pink elephant! Doh! Oh, wait, I’m meant to be removed from time… NOOO!!!
The thing is, I would have just killed myself, no, removed myself from time. What a terrible mistake! Reasons why I might not have died:
- I was too young back then to speak lots – I wouldn’t have really understood.
- The ‘new me’ may have gone back in time to speak to the then past self, making sure most things were fine.
- I don’t have a time machine of any kind (not even a TARDIS!).
Have a great day!
I could do with one of these
