Have You Been Paying Attention?
While the majority of viewers sit down and watch Doctor Who, eat their baked beans and meet their future partner’s on street corners outside night clubs, the rest of us pay a little more attention to each episod.
There was plenty to catch in The Doctor’s Wife (and check back later for a full round-up of episode reviews) but you might be interested to know that even more has been going down over at the BBC’s Official Doctor Who website.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been jotting down these mysteries and trying to work out something (anything, really) that might make sense, but thanks to one of our readers, we’ve recently found out that there is a little more to it all following Neil Gaiman’s episode.
The chaps at the BBC have cleverly secreted some secret messages into some background information on each episode, found in the Episodes section on the official site in a section called The Fourth Dimension, which is listed under each episode. These secret messages take the form of a hidden line of text that can be revealed by picking putting together the italicized words.
So far they have read:
The Impossible Astronaut: “All The secrets you seek can be found here on the Webb”
Day of the Moon: “We found your message. You’re alive! But what secrets d’you mean my friend?”
The Curse of the Black Spot: “I mean I glimpsed him! and May the gods help him or perhaps you can”
The Doctor’s Wife: “to see what I saw click on the spot beyond the Doctor’s home planet”
Pretty cool, huh? But it gets better… at the end of the last paragraph in the latest section is the word “Gallifrey”; by clicking the full stop you are taken here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/dw/videos/p00gygrl
Now don’t worry, spoilerphobes, the BBC have made this available for you to find for some added enjoyment of Doctor Who Series 6. There is nothing here that will spoil anything, only increase the depth of the mystery!
