"Not sure if I am an evil genius, or just someone who watches too much TV"
I am a Texas college student (studying Management of Information Systems), and I am a Tech enthusiast, computer geek and sci-fi fan.
I queue most posts but will do a post dump about once every few weeks.
and since this seems to be the main question you guys ask I am 5'6" tall, so ask me other things (funner things) also before you ask I am taken.
I was talking with a friend the other day and we noted something about Tasha Lem that no one else has noted that is a posible thing with River being Tasha. “The Church of the Papal Mainframe” meaning a computer, and where is River on a computer the mainframe of the library so Tasha could be a an extention of the mainframe so an extention of River. I mean if anyone could not only “escape” the computer and plant her self as a religion it would be River I mean she has made herself queen of things and a bit of a demigod so why not make herself a religion. And Tasha could be a physical manifestation of the mainframe.(like a flesh peripheral or something)
what if the Gelth are some form of timelord? a attempt to escape the rift at any cost (just like they tried in end of time)? I mean the other side of the Cardiff rift being galifray acually kind of makes sense, I mean what are some of the things that came through? the gauntlet that Rassalon had the matching one of? a device that lets you see through time? and what if the rift energy was actually discharge from the eye of harmony or what ever (the main power source of galifray which is why the TARDIS likes it)? just some thoughts
basically one of my “happy endings” for River is for the doctor to upload a copy of himself for River to have in the library. I mean she loves him so she would want to be with him.
but some people say well you can’t just upload a copy, he would have to die. well you are wrong.
the people in the library were uploaded by just being teleported. so CAL has access to the transport buffers. and since bits are bits given the proper commands the computer core could store a copy of what was teleported. she might not be able to rematerialize it but she could keep a digital copy.
so all the doctor would have to do is give the computer core the right commands and just teleport. and then a copy would be made for River to keep, just like how Rose got tentoo.
(seriously though, if you can bypass DRM all files are copyable so if CAL can store a person as a file (like how she did the residence of the library to protect them from the vashta nerada) she can copy that person and store that copy in the virtual world)
OK, I haven’t finished season one yet but this is a theory
Sarah was the original. That is why she wasn’t monitored and was able to have a child.
often cloned or genetically engineered entities have issues reproducing (they have had their DNA ripped apart, so it is hard enough to get it work much less able to properly recombine with someone else’s).
first off you need to know the origin story for River. suposibly Moffat and Davis were joking about some of the names of episodes and how they could spell things with the episode names, and they had a bit of a competition on what was the dirtiest word they could have the tittle spell out. That was when Moffat came up with “A River Song End” AKA ARSE, this kind of grew as he started creating this character River Song and how she was important enough to have her name be the tittle. That was the birth of River.
so basically I think he will have to finish the joke, he has to have River’s last episode be called that. it will probably start with the doctor taking River to the singing towers and then he watches from the shadows in the library. he will have an internal crisis, trying to fight becoming the “timelord victorious” and wanting to destroy the timeline to save River. and she will know he is there and at the point when she knocks out ten she calls over “her doctor” and tells him that this is how it has to be, he can’t stop her. we might have some parallels to the Wedding of River Song. and at the end we finally have the doctor give her the proper good bye as he visits her and the kids in the computerized dream land.
but then moffat in his classic moffat style will give us one more episode, the doctor is grieving when a young River sees the doctor for one last trip (for him) and he has to hide his feelings as he can’t tell her that he just watched her die.
Ok so first off with the Name of the Doctor we learned that the silence aren’t exactly bad guys or enemies of the doctor. they are just the worlds shitiest allies, I mean if the doctor knew the harm that allowing the GI to access his time line he would probably killed himself (if there was no other option), but instead of telling him that if he went to trenzalor and spoke his name his timeline would be erased and all the good he has done will be undone they decided to take it on themselves to kill him (and had an overly complicated method too). I mean not only did he have to fight them all the way (to get the to lay off so he could fix it himself) and commit genocide, they also really upset him by taking his friends. I mean the only good thing that came out is that he got an equal.
also the war between the silence and the doctor may not be with The Doctor but with “the Doctor” who didn’t live up to his name (and hopefully it will be explained) or with the changes that the GI caused.
… or why I think Moffat set up the perfect scenario to save River from the Library in the series finale.
read this, read it now.
this person did excellent research and has an amazing theory. It is something I really want and with this I really believe it will happen. so read and reblog, this person deserves all the notes.
he was suspicious of Clara, what was she? was she a trap? a spy? so the last thing he would tell her is what his greatest weakness was, his wife. if he told Clara (if Clara was a threat) then she would know how to hurt him, how to manipulate him, take the woman he loves and hurt her.
so his not telling Clara wasn’t because he doesn’t love River, but because he does love River. and by keeping their real relationship hidden he was protecting her.
He goes “I am the Doctor and my name is…” and it cuts to some point in space or some planet. we hear some spacey wacey noise as something appears or unlocks (from a timelock or something) and from it something leaves it.
basically it plays on the idea that the doctor used his real name to seal something in, something awful, something from Timelord stories (why Romana didn’t ask his name and why he is the only timelord whose name isn’t spoken). and they use this to give us something to see and hear to distract us from his name (old magicians trick).
this is what the wispermen or what ever are after and what the silence fear (the silence weren’t acting in malice but to protect the universe from this evil in their own ends over means method). and this is the great task that requires more doctors to solve (like how one and two were needed to help three fight omega) or it could effect all universe which is why tentoo and Rose zap over like how she did in stolen earth.
also that would make River a part of the 50th because she wouldn’t just leave in the middle of a fight (unless the doctor knew she would be a prime target (as she is a big weakness to him, he is very emotional and she is the woman he loves easy bait) and he is forced to trick her into leaving, sonicing her VM and zapping her to the past and trapping her or something).
so ya this is my main theory, I have a secondary one too. that instead he makes some weird noise, very high pitch or something making it hard to replicate or anything, and only River understands (as she is (basically) a timelady so her body and mind will be more attune to understanding it). if so I hope at the very end he adds “Song” or “Pond” to it or River jokes about adding it on (as the doctor made Rory take Amy’s name River makes him take hers)
