Look out he's behind you!

Oh, no he isn't... Is he?

Is this Oscar Windsor-Smith as he once was? Or is this his next regeneration? Be afraid… (Etc., etc)

Time. What is it? Where does it go? To be sure, it's not what we think it is.

Like countless others here in the UK, on Christmas Eve I watched the first half of the final episode of Doctor Who with David Tennant as The Doctor. That was fine. My problems began with the trailer for the second half, due to be broadcast on New Year's Day. It seems that the Time Lords are returning from the dead. In teaser shots we saw disturbing images – disturbing, that is, to me – relating as they do to a period that I refer to, in my quaint old-fashioned way, as my past. The above pic is the damning evidence.

IMPORTANT NOTES: All the items illustrated above are genuine and employed with the full knowledge and cooperation of the Gallifrey General Council. Be aware that Daleks can go down and up, as well as along. Oscar would like to thank the manufacturers of Botox in anticipation of his next regeneration. No Daleks were hurt in the making of this post.
