Here’s a few ideas floating around my head as I foam with anticipation over tonight’s episode of Doctor Who (6:40, BBC1. Don’t miss it!).
Much as I would love River Song to be the spirit of the TARDIS in human form, we’ve already seen that to awesome effect this season. I’m actually quite proud that I mooted this theory way back in June of last year, and it kinda-almost came true after a fashion with The Doctor’s Wife. But River, she ain’t. We can discount my original theory that she is Lucy Saxon too as we there have been no clues this season about any link to The Master at all.
In best Spoilers tradition, here’s a numbered list of not-so-cryptic sentences. All, some, or none of them might turn out to be true. Most likely none, but it’s fun to try and second guess the Grand Moff.
- The Pond becomes the River, the Melody becomes the Song.
- Ganger Doctor spent 200 years reforming
- My god! She killed Rory!
- Can plastic burn?
- The regenerating girl is not who you think it is
- And he’s dead!
- Jenny saves the day
- The wearer of the space suit has two hearts
- Reginald Perrin is alive and well
- Back to the forest to save a soul
There you have it. Make of those what you will. Most likely the babblings of an old fool.
Is it Doctor Who Time yet?
UPDATE: One right out of ten (but I won’t say which one for those who haven’t seen the episode yet) so far, with the promise of more to be revealed when the series restarts. September cannot come soon enough!
