From the Home Office on Raxacoricofallapatorius

In a recent editorial in Doctor Who magazine, Steven Moffett, who’s taking over as the show’s producer, was quoted as saying, “They’re back.”

Of course the assumption is that he’s referring to the Time Lords, but let’s not jump to conclusions. Here are ten other “they”s who could also be back:

10) The Macra (let’s just get that out of the way)

9) The fans who left because the Adipose were too silly of a creature to be featured on a serious show like Doctor Who

8) Rose the Companion, joined by Rose the dog

7) The Turgids

6) The dodgy special effects that the show just wouldn’t be good without

5) Superweapons the Doctor stole when he left Gallifrey

4) McRibs, for a limited time

3) John and Gillian, the Doctor’s  nephew and niece  grandchildren.

2) Pip and Jane Baker

and the final “they” that Steven Moffett could be bringing back?

1) The other rooms in the TARDIS

(Thanks to Dorian for hepping me to this.)

    I’d be inclined to add Space Rhinos on the Moon, but they’ve already come back, haven’t they?

  2. Stewart says:

    Awesome Photoshop! I love the McRib! I would try to add some other interesting insights, but I don’t have BBC America and can’t watch Doctor Who.

    Speaking of BBC America, what is your take on the proposed US version of Top Gear?

  3. Dave says:

    Can’t, Stewart? You CAN’T watch it? You CAN watch “The Notebook” and “27 Dresses” via Netflix but somehow the Doctor Who DVDs are banned from your queue?

    Don’t give me “can’t”, Stewart. You of all people. You’re a symbol of hope for us all.

    2) Pip and Jane Baker

    That’s a TERRIBLE thing to suggest, even as a joke!

    “A megabyte modem!”

    I say you can’t improve on perfection–the idea is ill-advised.


    WHAT IF there’s an American Richard Hammond out there, who is closer to my grasp than the UK one?

    I retract my former opinion. The American version has my full support!

    Except I can’t imagine how awful an American Jeremy could be.

    Okay: ill-advised, final answer.

    It can’t be number 9…those fans didn’t leave, they just went into another room, held their breath until they passed out, then came back in, stood in a corner and pouted until the episode was over.
