“…to the moment of your death” – This is a dark version of the conversation Clara had with Strax in Deep Breath – he saw all the “young men doing sport” in her subconscious, and was about to announce her age at death, where like here, she stopped him abruptly. Two scenes where Clara doesn’t want to know about her death. That leaves one more before we can declare it enemy action.
How many Bettles are runing around in the Marvel Universe? In Superior Foes, there is a woman in the Beetle suit, but in the latest Amazing Spider Man, there is a male Beetle. Is it another one of Kingsley's super villain franchises?
"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door…" The idea is so close to implausible, it only makes it more plausible. What if there really is someone in the shadows? …
THE MONSTER FILES – There’s quite a bit of argument if there was any monster in the episode at all, but the concepts touched on are very much a recurring theme for Steven Moffat. The idea of there really being something under the bed was first touched on in The Girl in the Fireplace, where The Doctor first tries to protect young Reinette. Things in the dark became the Vashta Nerada in Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead. The Silence and Prisoner Zero are both examples of beings you only see out of the corner of your eye. And they ALL started in a prose story of the same name Steven wrote in 2006. “Corner of the Eye” was a story for The Doctor Who Storybook 2007, and introduced us to the Floofs, a race who, exactly as The Doctor has theorized, evolved to be perfect hiders, so much so there’s no record of their existence.
i mean for fuck’s sake the daily mail vigorously fapping off to the idea that jack the ripper is in fact a jewish refugee from poland should have set of more alarm bells for people but naaaaaw
for my fellow americans who might not be keyed in on the context here: imagine fox news shitting themselves over the possibility that the zodiac killer was a mexican immigrant
The reason (or so I surmise) that the Mail put forth this theory was to get across the message, “No worries, folks, it wasn’t a Englishman who did this, it was some foreigner”. So people would be more willing to accept it.
If an American paper tried to claim Zodiac was a Mexican, people would discount it because Zodiac was portrayed as a genius. Not merely a maniac, but one who was daring the police to catch him a la The Riddler. It would be off-putting that “some Mexican” had done that - we’d actually WANT it to be an American. Same reason we’d want it to be a WHITE American.
