THAT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE!!!!!!!!
erm, sorry, that just sort of came out, as it did every time anyone said that during this episode. Not only does it make no fucking sense on it’s face (why couldn’t you change something after reading about it, can you change something after hearing about it, smelling it, what?), but every major incident of them deliberately re-writing time (such as: oh, I don’t know, River not really killing the Doctor) they had first read about it, usually on some text display in the TARDIS. They read about several things and then still changed them.
The thing about Oswin
(Spoilers for Asylum of the Daleks)
Yes! Exactly, all of this! Especially as the whole reason the Daleks wanted their asylum planet destroyed is because “something” had come up that was far more dangerous than anything there before. Oswin obviously was that something. The Daleks knew that she was a major threat to all Dalek kind and the Doctor just lets them blow her up! Some fucking predator. Honestly, the whole fact that the Doctor just goes ahead and does exactly what the Daleks asked in the end (except he teleported directly into the TARDIS, so, check-mate I guess) just frustrated and baffled me. I know they made him, but a normal Doctor Who plot would involve unspeakable evil force A trying to make the Doctor do thing B. The Doctor goes along and starts to do B, but then in the end does something clever and avoids doing B and instead does something awesome, foiling unspeakable evil A. Alternatively he volunteers to sacrifice himself rather than help unspeakable evil A and is only saved by a plucky companion doing something amazing or slapping some sense into him, or, more usually, both. This time he didn’t even try to do anything but what the Daleks asked him to do, not even to save Oswin, who was so clearly someone worth saving. Didn’t even try! What the hell! Consistent characterization fail.

TOO MUCH ADORABLE. MAY PASS OUT. TINY MARTHA IS LIFE
Nine really has the attitude down.
Eggs. Stir. Min. Ate.
I was working on my commission… and then this happened.
All this time they have just been trying to remember the proper souffle recipe
Can we talk about how the process of subtracting love and adding hate to Amy Pond’s brain involves her seeing tiny ginger ballerinas. Like, is that supposed to be her and she just really hated ballet, or is it that bitch from her grade four ballet class who always got the good parts and was why she was called “other ginger”, or is it some horrifying and overwrought reminder of how she will never have tiny ginger ballerinas of her own (or was Moffat just like, YOLO, it’ll look cool and the fans will justify it somehow)?
Oh Oswin, you are going to be the only thing this season I don’t hate aren’t you?
