I told my sister she should take a trip with The Doctor for her 40th birthday and she though I was joking. See, not joking.
It’s a great irony: an anachronistic timepiece.
This happens with alarming frequency. I have a whole book of anomalous archaeological finds.
What is the name of the book? I’d really enjoy that.
Ancient Man: A Handbook of Puzzling Artifacts by William Corliss is the best, but it’s dated and very rare. He also has a series called Archaeological Anomalies. It’s mostly straight-up reports of things that don’t make sense, or things found where they shouldn’t be. He’s not an “ancient aliens” wignut: just a Fortean intrigued by anomalies. Corliss was a physicist who selected only material from academic journals. He died a couple years ago.
And that book was found IN THE TOMB OF KING TUTANKHAMEN!
A ring that has a watch inside it? Freaky, yeah, but not definitive proof of the existence of Dr. Who. Now if they’d found the Tardis or K-9 or even a sonic screwdriver . . .
True, it could have been Dr. River Song.
