Premeditated_Road_Rage: I'm really surprised they didn't make a more dramatic change when Smith came on the show. The idea of the interior being the interior of a living being was left over from RTD.

Actually, Lexx did it first - think he may have drawn some inspiration off of that. LOL


The TARDIS was established as a living machine in the first season (1964's Edge of Destruction). If you mean organic living, Doctor Who saw a ship like that in Claws of Axos in 1971...

maxpower007: badsushi: So, curious...

Oswin's first episode ended with her pretty much breaking the fourth wall, and telling us to remember her.

But now its NOT her, but another girl who looks like her?

I know Martha and Amy both appeared on the show as other characters before returning as companions, but this bothers me.

Why bother with a great set up and then ignore it. Or are they going for a wibbly wobbly tomey wimey thing.

I read somewhere she could be the Doctor's daughter Jenny regenerated. But I haven't really thought about it...I don't like reading about future episodes/plot twists. Which I already have that one and the fact that this chick is coming back in my head. Oh and now a new TARDIS. This is why I was glad I didn't start watching the show until this summer, I didn't know anything. Now I'm caught up and stumble upon stuff with spoilers. I'd rather just figure it out in my head or talk about theories with people rather than read confirmed facts on the net.

/ramblin...


My theory:

Oswin pretty much knew the Dalek command network better than the Daleks did. They assimilated her into a Dalek, so her DNA and physical form is on file. The Daleks also have time travel capabilities (as far back as the First Doctor era). I'm guessing that after the Doctor gave her the terrible truth of her reality, she quickly ordered a Dalek assimilation plant to clone a new body with her DNA, rapidly age it to the age she was upon assimilation. With that in programmed and running, she then added the command that her consciousness be extracted from the command network and merged into the cloned body, then extracted her consciousness into the Dalek Command Network before the planet exploded. So her new body was cloned, she was merged into it and she then used the time travel technology to meet the Doctor in the 1800s.

I come to this theory based on what I know: 1) She was shown to know the command network better than any Dalek. 2) Daleks have time travel. 3) She was turned into a Dalek so they have her DNA on file. 4) the audio play 'Dalek Empire 2' mentions the Dalek Emperor extracting his consciousness out of his body and into the mind of a woman named Susan Mendez and the Daleks wanted to put him back into his body, so that part is possible. 5) If she can get the Daleks to forget the Doctor, then she can pretty much order them to do anything, including clone her a new body and drop her off on Earth in the past. 6) if they can create an entire Dalek from one human cell, then it should be easy to create a human from one human cell. 7) They were able to use that sample in 'Victory of the Daleks' to create a series of new Daleks instantly, so why not combine a small number of human cells and create an adult woman? As for where those cells came from, Amy and/or Rory must have had a skin bits flake off here and there. Human cells, her DNA, Clara clone.

/surprisingly, this theory took me less than 5 minutes to work out.

Pepperjack: Loved Tennant. Hated most of RTD's stories.
Love Smith and LOVE Moffatt's writing.

I would have really loved Tennant with Moffatt running the show.


Ewwww. Moffat writes great episodes, but he's NOT a great show runner. This current season has been painful to watch thus far. He's run the Angels in to the ground, made me grow sick of Amy Pond, and spent months trying to show us how awesome he is (and failing).

I'll go one better and suggest Eccleston with Moffatt running the show.

I was really disappointed we didn't get a second series of Eccleston.

Don't get the Smith hate. Perhaps going outside once in a while will help you realize its a tv show.

Teresaol31: THIS. Smith Sucks.


Well, compared to a real Doctor, like Troughton, sure, but that's hardly fair. Compared to a twit like Tennant, he's quite the improvement.

Teresaol31: diaphoresis: NeoCortex42: quatchi: Yes, but will the new TARDIS come equipped with one of those new TARDIS Fridge thingies inside or would that be like dividing the universe by zero while crossing the streams?

No, but it will come equipped with one of these:

I'd rather it came with a new Doctor...

Thanks for sharing your opinions with the class. Now GTFO.

kimwim: phaseolus: Somebody refresh my memory -- when was the last time they changed it? Was it when Matt Smith took over, or before then?

When Matt Smith came on. I thought it was a new TARDIS with a new incarnation. But I know Matt Smith is staying another 2 years at least. So....this is weird.


Not really; they changed the TARDIS control room for Tom Baker's 2nd series (the really cool wood and brass
Edwardian styled one), but had to change it back because all the fine wood warped during the break between
series 2 and 3.

In theory, The Doctor could change the control room whenever he wants; the way its described in THE DOCTOR'S
WIFE, the process of creating a control room is not unlike applying a desktop manager in X (for all you Linux-y
types out there).

... interior, subby. Troll about the new series if you want, but don't troll about that.

/though I would applaud a move that daring.
