Dr Who - The PLAN (At least as I see it)

(Yeppers, you guessed it, no movie review again this week. Hoping to sneak a movie sometime this weekend since Animefest is local, but we'll see. :P)


After a short hiatus Dr Who is back! And with a BANG!  Had to watch the
episode "Let's Kill Hitler" with the remote at hand so I could pause to
digest bits, but mostly to rewind and rewatch. I believe this is the
episode where we now get a foreshadowing of the PLAN and what the hey is
going on this season.

Figured I'd lay out my reasonings (plus a few more from a brainstorm with Kathryn Sullivan (Super Whovian Extraordinaire!). So here we GO!

Per canon, Time if fluid and can be changed without incident except for
Fixed Points in Time. They've pounded this in over and over. But what
people don't think about is that the perception of the Fixed
Point itself can be misunderstood. The whole universe is making the
assumption that the fixed part of Utah in 2011 is the Doctor's death. In
fact, the fixed part is the giant con that will be run on that date on
the universe and specifically the Silence. The con that will make
everyone believe that the Doctor is dead.

What has been the Doctor's biggest problem the last couple of seasons?
The fact everyone sees him as a danger to the universe, even after
proving he wasn't it. So how do people who become too visible and who
love freedom more than anything do to get peeps off their backs? They
fake their deaths. And now that the Doctor has learned the one secret
everyone was trying to keep from him (the fact he died and the details)
and NO ONE knows he knows, he can set it up.

1) Everyone got invites to be there to see it. Including the Doctor.
(And the Silence) Shows foreknowledge of the upcoming event. AND making
sure everyone who needs to know knows so the ball can roll in the right
direction. (As Kathy points out, the Doctor arrived there in a CAR.
Aside from Jon Pertwee's Doctor, he doesn't normally go anywhere except
by Tardis. So that he's driving/in one in Utah is hinky.)

2) An old friend shows up to help destroy his body (meaning no one can
check on it too closely) , one that leads to the mystery of the girl in
the suit (right off the bat making peeps believe the girl in the
spacesuit and this spacesuit killer in Utah are related if not the
same). Yet now we know River Song is the girl in the suit, and she was
as surprised as everyone else at his demise, so can we say Red Herring?

3) The Justice Robot being in the wrong place and time to met
out Hitler's Justice. That was someone tampering. Such a unit would not
have made such a mistake in time unless made to - bad timing could be
catastrophic, especially since they try to take people when they would
normally leave the time line, therefore causing no change. The tech
mentioned there'd been some sort of a mistake, that they were too early
in Hitler's timeline. Since the Doctor has lived through the Justice
people being there and the impact they had in helping the situation
with both saving River and himself, he would make sure it occurs. And
isn't he one of the best hackers around? Heh heh

4) The Flesh. There's already a Flesh Doctor out there and he will be
the one to die. (Another reason for disposing of the body - no
evidence!) (As Kathy brought up, she asked if it was free Flesh or
Slaved Flesh. I was talking Free Flesh. As a copy of the Doctor has
already been made. She stated it would be murder, but I said, not if he
sacrificed himself. Either because he feels as strongly about freedom as
the Doctor (which he would) or they insert that the Flesh only has so
long to live and he volunteers (didn't they mention this Doctor was like
super old?). Kathy also suggested they could use a Justice Robot for
the deed as well and they do have an abandoned unit they can use. Just
reprogram the thing.)

5) The Doctor will kill the Doctor. Since it's his set up and his deal.
Also, as I said, covers why River is so surprised, because even though
she did have a suit, and she did do stuff in it, it isn't her at the

6) I think the Voice Interface is going to play a key spot in there
somewhere. Possibly stemming back to how River was conceived/changed in
the first place. Maybe...  The Doctor was trying way too hard to make
the Amy version be more than its programming. This hints of something
being in flux. More hunky stuff! (Might even be the precursor in setting
up how River even got made?)

A lot of peeps are feeling weird about Stephen Moffat running the gig,
but I have confidence! There's a PLAN!  BWAHAAHHAHAHAHAAHA!

What do you all think is going on?

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
