Doctor Who Christmas Special

Posted by Turakii #1 Lavasurfer , Jan 07 2011 · 485 views

I saw it before now, honest. Flying fish are awesome.

But anyways, something's been bugging me ever since I saw it... why could Kazran Sardick come in contact with his younger self?

The Doctor Who topic offers the explanation that, since he was changing and becoming nicer, he technically wasn't the same person anymore. The question is, if that applies, how far does the "different person" part extend?

For example, in the Father's Day episode, couldn't baby Rose count as a different person because, unlike older Rose, her father actually made it to the wedding alive? Can the existence of one person make a difference? Or is it only inner changes?

(On another note, if Kazran could remember his past as it changed, why couldn't Rose? Why could she tell her father about him not being there when she and everyone else were, at that time, probably going to be eaten, and thus she'd have no memories?)

Returning to the original topic...

In the fifth Doctor episode Mawdryn Undead, two versions of the Brigadier (the leader of UNIT), from two different times, are unknowingly on the same ship at the same time. The Doctor mentions that if they touch each other, to paraphrase, time would pretty much blow up, or at least suffer serious repercussions. In a marvelous coincidence, when they inevitably touched, it was at the same moment the Doctor was being forced to transfer his remaining regenerations to another person, so all the energy went into that and both time and the Doctor went on their merry way.

But the Doctor wasn't performing anything like that, so why didn't time blow up? D=

1.Rose was traveling with the Doctor, plain and simple. smile.gif
2.People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect... but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff.
3.As Kazran showed, you can remember both the old memories and the new ones; Rose merely didn't mention any new memories.
4.Little Kazran was brought from the past to the future, rather than the inverse which occurred in Father's Day with Rose.
5.The time of Rose's father's death was a fixed point in history; Kazran's past wasn't.

Hope that helps a little.

Plus there's still the major time mess from the Cracks/Pandorica adventure.

I wouldn't be surprised if the rules of time got bent a bit.

Eh, I wasn't too keen on the episode. In my view, it was probably the worst of series 5 - unless it counts as series 6 (in which case I'll reserve judgement until Autumn when both halves of series 6 have ended).

In respect to Kazran coming into contact with his younger self, it would have also changed his memories to suit that occasion, and thus he would know the outcome of his and the Doctor's visits to Abigail, and thus prevent it, and thus stop the ending from happening as it did, with Kazran having longer to be with Abigail.... wacko.gif
The Doctor needs a portable Paradox Machine.
Also, RETURN OF THE FEZ. _icon_joy_.gif

Next series looks fun, though.
Stetsons are cool, but the Fez is awesome.
