River went to prison for a crime she didn't commit, as we now know. So, she's consigned to spend her life in jail, so the Doctor can fly under the radar.... which he ends up not doing anyway. It's not about whether she can escape on her own or not - it's about the fact that the whole reason she's there in the first place is to protect the Doctor by continuing the facade that she killed him and that he's dead. Except he isn't, and based on the Christmas Special, he's made no effort to be discreet about it.

Then when River finally does die, her ultimate fate is to be a cyber nanny to a bunch of kids who don't really exist, not because she wants to but because the Doctor doesn't have any other way of keeping her alive after she dies.
Well, River may not have committed murder but it was attempted murder. And either way, I doubt any jury would have bought her defense: "The aliens that you can never remember hypnotized me into doing it."

And not all of the kids in "Forest of the Dead" are fake. One of them is the real niece/daughter/whatever of the guy that originally owned the library. And regardless, I don't see that the Doctor had any better options without seriously damaging the fabric of the space-time continuum.

Overall, that list is a little hysterical. Although it is absolutely right about Peri. But I don't think you can hold the Time War against him very much. "The End of Time" pretty well establishes that Rassilon had gone insane was going to destroy the rest of the universe to try to force all of the Time Lords to ascend to a higher plane of existence. Also, when Donna was confronted with weird alien stuff, her "brainsplosion" didn't kill her. It just knocked her out for a while. Again, I don't see that he had any better options.

I do think leaving the Hand of Omega on Earth in 1963 was very irresponsible. I now have a pet theory that, in a previous timeline before he retrieved it in "Remembrance of the Daleks," the Daleks had gotten ahold of it in "The Dalek Invasion of Earth." They later used this technology to extrapolate other Time Lord-style tech, which is how the Daleks had their own TARDIS in "The Chase."

So I've been playing a lot of "Draw Something" on the iPad lately and started incorporating the Doctor into my drawings:







I play as "tkent22" if anyone wants to play me.

Someone brilliant needs to write new lyrics for "Call Me Maybe" and get a good singer to sing it!

This is good. I used to have a boss like #6 -- a serious multi-personality. I got out before she could get the slug in my brain. Others weren't so lucky....
