Doomsday thoughts

July 10th, 2006 (11:05 am)

Just a couple of very quick ideas that hit me in passing.

1) The Tardis went to the other parallel earth as well. Why didn't it get sucked into the void too?

2) The Black Dalek time shifted, thus avoiding the void (so to say). Obviously, he'll be back. Anyone remember his name?

3) Any Cybermen made on our Earth (I'm looking at you, Yvonne) would not have been sucked through the void.

Intriguing thoughts and/or plot-bunnies.

Hmm. Good point re: Cybermen. I mean, you can't even explain it away by saying they brought all the armour through with them, because they plainly didn't. Unless there's supposed to be another transit-point behind all that crappy cheap plastic cheeting?

Arrrgh! I'm really starting to hate RTD!

Doctor Who - The Day I Died

It was Dalek Sec (sp?) that escaped.

I glad they showed it/hir escaping as it means when they inevitably bring back the daleks next season, it won't be a case of "And here's another secretive Dalek sect that's been hiding behind the sofa."

Got a few problems with continuity in the episode myself...

Firstly the Doctor said that when the Time Lords were around, travelling between alternate realities was more commonplace, and that there were realities for just about every little decision/choice/event depending on differing outcomes (essentially saying that in the DW-Verse, they go with the theory that there must be an almost infinite number of alternate realities).

Surely sealing the rift would only seal that one particular link between those two worlds, if you went via a less direct route (i.e. using many alternate realities as stepping stones then eventually he could make it to the reality Rose is now in). It can't have sealed one of those realities off from ALL the others (least not in anyway that makes sense to me).

And even if the TARDIS wasn't capable of travelling to alternate dimensions (though they did seem to do it accidentally earlier on in the series), unless I slept through some piece of the episode the Void ship should still be in the same dimension as the Doctor.

Am I having a real brain-fart here, and someone's going to tell me something that gives me a doh moment..?

The void ship vanished when the Daleks emerged. It was some sort of force field, I think, not a physical object.
