Doctor Who thoughts. See? I still love this show!  
Stumbled over the episode Dalek on BBC 3* tonight. Adam (godlovehim) implies that believing in aliens is still as freaky in his time as it is in ours. (Yes I know it's the 'near future' but it's still the future, right?)

So... what about the whole end of Christmas Invasion then? The whole 'no denying it now' thing?

If humanity is more accepting of the existence of aliens, then would Adam have been such a geek? Would he have been so motivated to understand the workings of supposedly alien technology if it was accepted that we aren't alone in the universe?

Can you believe I'm actually thinking meta thoughts about Adam?!

Hmmm, temporal paradoxes, dontcha love 'em?

* D'oh! Sorry, UKGold, 'cause it's School Reunion that's on BBC 3 right now...

Randomly. What is the plural of 'paradox'? Is it 'paradoxes' or 'paradi' or what? :)

It doesn't make sense. They could have had the Doctor create new realities each time he fiddled with our time, or everything being as it was supposed to be, but per Christmas Invasion, the Torchwood Institute existed before the Doctor made it exist and yet per Dalek, Earth still doesn't believe in aliens, even after being invaded at least twice (both on ten's watch).

Guess the Doctor creates new realities each time he fiddles with time, and the weirdness can be explained by Alt!Universe!Doctor's or something.

It's the Trousers of Time, that's what it is. *nods*

(*help, Terry Pratchett has infected my brain...*)

According to dictionary.com the plural form of paradox is paradoxes.

*feels all smart*

I'm trying to remember how everything was presented in "Love and Monsters," but the overall impression I got was that the series was playing with the "Sunnydale" scenario--that there actually isn't anything which humans cannot rationalize, and so there is always, dialogue from Christmas Invasion notwithstanding, the option of denying it.
