The Ghost Snake of the Milky Way - Looks familiar doesn't it?

A cosmic snake appears to slither across the plane of our Milky Way galaxy in this image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The snake-like object located about 11,000 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius is actually the core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems and may be harboring beastly stars in the process of forming.

Auton Rory Williams

Rory Williams was an Auton based duplicate of the real Rory Williams who was killed in 21st century Earth at the hands of the Silurian, Restac.

Following that incident, an Alliance of races ranging from the Daleks to the Cybermen, Judoon, Sontarans and Nestene Consciousness along with a myriad of other races came to the conclusion that the Time Field forming was the end of the universe itself. They later pooled their resources in stopping it as they uncovered that the Doctor was going to be responsible for this event. To that end, they created an elaborate plan involving the Pandorica in Stonehenge that would serve as his prison. To complete the plan, the Nestene Consciousness was responsible for the deployment of Autons in the region where they were dressed up as Roman soldiers camped out near the area. This was based on the psychic residue left behind at Amy Pond's home which the Alliance managed to acquire as they believed it to be the perfect trap to ensare The Doctor and save the universe. The analysis of her home time period allowed for the creation of a duplicate version of Rory Williams in the process.

This duplicate was placed with the other Auton Roman soldiers where they were all led to believe that they were actual members of the Roman Empire. The Auton Rory Williams was led to believe that he had died and had somehow ended up in an earlier time period where he awaited the Doctor to rescue him. However, part of him believed that his early life was all a dream. When news came at the Roman encampment of strange visitors, Auton Rory decided to volunteer to help the Doctor fight armies of alien invaders that had come to claim the Pandorica when Professor River Song sought the Romans aid. Take a contingent of volunteer soldiers, they journeyed to beneath Stonehenge where Auton Rory saved the life of Amy Pond when she was being attacked by a Cyberman by destroying it with a sword plunged through its chest. Later, he explained his situation to the Doctor with neither knowing how Rory came to this time period. The Doctor managed to convince Auton Rory to meet Amy and confess his love since she had forgotten him due to his removal from the time line.

As he did so, she cried and began to remember him but at that point the Aliance struck where they captured the Doctor. The Nestene Consciousness had activated its signal that turned the Roman soldiers back to their Auton selves with the Auton version of Rory attempting to fight the program. He urged for Amy to run whilst attempting to assert his own personality over the programming. As he called out his name, Amy remembered and said that he was her boyfriend. Just as she hugged him, the Auton programming activated and the duplicate Rory's hand opened up into a blaster which shot Amy Pond seemingly killing her. (DW: The Pandorica Opens) via

The Doctor


Doctor Who fans' 'flash' frenzy @ 15mins 10secs

Doctor Who fans sent message boards into overdrive as they were convinced they had seen more of actor Matt Smith than they were supposed to.
In new episode The Lodger, which aired on BBC One on Saturday evening and guest starred Gavin And Stacey's James Corden, the Timelord dropped his towel as he left the bathroom, and fans claimed that by freeze framing the show at 15 minutes and ten seconds they caught a glimpse of Matt's manhood.

The Whomobile

The Whomobile was one of Jon Pertwee's personal vehicles. He retained possession of it until nearly the end of his life.

When Pertwee demonstrated the vehicle on an episode of Blue Peter during his tenure, he revealed that the vehicle was road worthy and legal, though he mentioned that the BBC forbade him or any of the crew from removing it from the studios except for outside shoots. It was capable of a top speed of 105 mph.

The vehicle was not created for Doctor Who, but was personally commissioned by Jon Pertwee, who retained possession of it after his stint as the Doctor. Pertwee gave it the name "Whomobile" during press interviews, but it was also known — again, offscreen — as "Alien". Had the vehicle been named in Doctor Who, it almost certainly would not have been called "the Whomobile", as this violated producer Barry Letts' strong conviction against making plays on the programme's title. The Doctor Who Technical Manual referred to it simply as "The Doctor's Car."
