Space Time Unravels!
Will the causal nexus unravel? Has it already started happening?
Was it, indeed, already happening on Friday night when the Tenth Doctor didn’t carry the Olympic Torch and light the cauldron?
We’re referring – of course – to Fear Her and the failed campaign for David Tennant to be the “the one” to light the all-important Olympic cauldron at this year’s games, currently taking place in London (in case you hadn’t noticed for some reason).
Sure, it might have been better to give the job to a bunch of upcoming future athetes, but did LOGOC think of the consequences beyond their own self-interest? If other Olympic-related controversies are anything to go by, the answer is clearly “no”.
But how will we tell if the very fabric of reality is torn asunder by this blatant disregard for the laws of time, cause and effect?
By our reckoning, you’ll see the following:
- Declining numbers of occupied seats in Olympic events as the Chloe Webber/Isolus creature hides people in drawings.
- A steadily growing disinterest in the games until the athletics finals, with a few small peaks for gymnastics and football.
- Unusual Sunday trading hours and a games that seems to go on for ever.
