The Timey Wimey of Doctor Who

Wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff has been going in a certain British TV show for decades now and as it has entered its fiftieth year it is only right that we feature the good Doctor a little more (even) than usual.

Currently the lead writer and executive producer of the show, Steven Moffat puts it well when he says that “You can be dealing with the consequences of an action that you have not yet performed. That’s brilliant.”

It seems in the universe of Doctor Who, some moments in time are fixed and some are not but we simply have to go along for the ride!  Don’t worry if you don’t quite get it, really. Sometimes even the Doctor becomes a little frustrated by these laws and so he went just a little more bonkers than usual in the excellent (and under repeated) Waters of Mars. This cool piece of film was created for BBC America and features a number of contributors including Chris Hardwick, Eugene Mirman and Chloe Dykstra.

This documentary short was cut by Bogdan Szabo of Infinity Plus One.
