But Davros had been monitoring earth and watching LOST – that’s where he got the idea to hide the planets a second into the future. And that, I think, is how the Doctor’s new self, a second ahead of the universe, will somehow not prevent his present self from continuing.
I just watched the latest episode of Doctor Who, “The Stolen Earth” [SPOILER WARNING for American viewers]. Fan sites are abuzz with speculation about what is going on, since David Tennant is supposed to be back as the Doctor in subsequent episodes.
Not that that makes sense, but whether it is LOST or Doctor Who, one needs a generous dose of suspension of disbelief. Then again, if we live in a world where our present understanding of Quantum mechanics is correct, and a universe in which time travel is possible, then most of our notions of what “makes sense” are destined to be discarded.
