Confusion at end: Nightside folks vote to kill Moon
baby, yet Courteny + Clara save it, and Doctor waxes
lyrical about decision.
Still everything is back to normal.
In 2059 (The Waters Of Mars), why didn't Adelaide Brooks wax
lyrical about the Moon hatching and inspiring our return to space?
Those two events occurred in two different timelines, Tim.
So did the Doctor travel to a parallel universe?
Or maybe diverging universes, or one universe with a changing timeline.
There are lots of possibilities.
OTOH I disagree with Daniel and think The Waters Of Mars and Kill The
Moon would've taken place in the same timeline. There's nothing to
suggest the timeline changed between them.
Maybe not a good reference, but has anybody seen the "Back to the
Main character goes from the 80's back to the 50's and causes a change
in the timelines, so that when he returns to the 80's, things have
changed drastically, causing him to have to time-travel again to sort
Same sort of thing continually happening to Dr Who ... except Dr Who
doesn't go back to re-sort out the time-lines!! The Doctor just lets
the (new) timeline continue!
Continually? My impression is that big changes to the timeline are
the exception not the rule. Where do you get the idea they happen
Apart from a couple of "Points fixed in Time", which The Doctor usually
fiddles with in any case, just about ever storyline results in The
Doctor effecting things.
The Other Doctor, where The Doctor helps The Other Doctor to rid 19th
Century London of Cybermen.
The Girl who Died ... when one "Dark Ages" Nordic woman become immortal
... after Dr Who has saved her home town.
Face the Raven ... where a guy has a "clock" on his neck ... which then
gets transferred to Clara, ... so, presumable that guy doesn't die at
the correct date/time!
Etc., Etc., Etc..
