Several things came to mind while watching yesterday.  

1. The leaf in Clara’s book.  She said it was her ‘first page.’ Leaves come from trees, there are trees in the forest, and the paper we use to make books comes from those trees.  Where do we put books? In… The Library….where River is!

2. “remember.” So much has been made of this word.  It’s ability to bring things back when they have been forgotten – even lost in another universe.  

3. “I don’t know where I am.”  Clara says this in AOTD and in TBOSJ.

4. The spoonheads very closely resemble courtesy nodes (again, the Library), and the concept of the GI behaving like a farmer who cares for humans like they were his animals by uploading them is (again with the Library) very similar to CAL saving humans by uploading them. Hmmm.


Doctor Who: Summer Falls.  By Amelia Williams

“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise…”

In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator’s magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.

And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.
