They Keep Killing Rory

“Oh my God!  They killed Rory!  You b******!” My friends, those are the words you would hear if South Park ever made a spoof of the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who.  But some would argue that Doctor Who is beginning to turn into a slight parody of South Park, with the aforementioned Rory Pond…
