Fantasy Map: River Song’s Timeline Relative to the Doctor’s
Note: Spoilers, sweetie! Both on the map and in the text!
For those people who just have to know the order that things happen in, this is the map for you!
Created by a designer at Doctor Who Online, this all looks pretty plausible to me, although I don’t lie awake at night wondering about temporal paradoxes and crossing one’s own time stream. It even includes River’s appearances in related video games and Season 6 DVD-exclusive mini-episodes, as well as untelevised adventures like the infamous “Jim the Fish”.
The one thing I would add is a line from River’s death in the Library (Forest of the Dead with the 10th Doctor) to her (final?) appearance in The Name of the Doctor, as it’s her data ghost that is stored in the Library after her death that appears in that episode.
Putting my obvious fanboy love of this map aside, it is nice to see the subway map metaphor used intelligently here: the “interchanges” between “routes” (River’s and the Doctor’s separate time streams) actually mean something and help to visually explain a very complex narrative. That it also ends up looking like a big ball of timey-wimey stuff is an added bonus.

Ug No Kings nooooo. And that’s why you shouldn’t let ANYONE who’s not a working employee in the media department have the team Twitter account. MEDIA EMPLOYEES ONLY. Stop letting celebrities tweet during games. It’s not as cool as you think it is. They don’t all have proper filters/working brains and may go and make rape jokes during the game. Jesus Christ.
Yup. Takeovers are okay if you have someone sitting over their shoulder approving tweets before you post them.
Gus is making a very strong case that he is adorkable enough to make the Flyers’ roster again next year.

I love the BBC commentator trying to describe baseball. But, my favorite part of this video is when he’s about to say that the Yankees are the Manchester United of baseball. So funny to hear it that way, rather than Manchester United are the Yankees of EPL.
Coming Soon of the Day: Neil Degrasse Tyson Will Host the Sequel of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos
Though it’s been quietly in the works since 2011, Fox has officially confirmed that Carl Sagan’s monumental 1970 sci-ed miniseries Cosmos: A Personal Voyage will be getting an updated sequel next year, which will consist of 13 episodes produced by Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane and hosted by one of the Internet’s most celebrated astrophysicists, Neil Degrasse Tyson. Fox is hoping the show will have as much as of cultural impact as Carl Sagan’s original series, which still remains one of the most watched PBS series in the world to this day.
