I was recently spitballing McGuffins with my brother to explain his aging
and came up with a cracker that no doubt has occurred to the Grand Moff.
DT had a human incarnation who could get older.
I thought perhaps when he was "made" you could use wibbly wobbly timey wimey
to say that every other incarnation ALSO got such a person with them.
Then explaining how and why they look old.
Corner. Painted out of ;-)
I'd still quite like an "overuse of the Sonic Screwdriver" joke written in.
Was it PD or CB that had it removed from their run as Who?
Have them come out of their TARDIS with MS waving his screwdriver around and
they can say "Not that thing? It's more trouble than it's worth!"
I'd quite like someone to do this too. MS turns up to a situation and uses
the Psychic paper. Person he's waving it at looks totally unimpressed,
sparks up a cigarette lighter and sets fire to it then looks at him and says
"What's with the blank paper?" as he's from a species it doesn't work on.
