    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."

    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....

    I've had a few of those. At my last call center job, my direct supervisor was like #3 but I would often wind up in the firing line of the leader of the neighboring team, who was a total #1 (except he was even older).

    Before that, I worked at a used bookstore. My direct supervisor was a #5 while the store manager was closer to a #6 or #9, which was complicated by the fact that they (and us underlings) were constantly beset by the enigmatic dictates of a #7 back at the corporate office in another city. (There was also an assistant manager who was a big Doctor Who fan. I'd say he was a #10 with a bit of #3 thrown in.)

    No comic to show, just an amusing anecdote.

    Several years ago I tried to explain the more visibly iconic aspects of Doctor Who to a friend not well versed in the "mythos". As I told him of the Daleks, explaining the purpose of the odd appendages, I commented, "I know it must look silly to you, this 'garbage can' with a 'cooking whisk' for a gun and a 'toilet plunger' for an arm." Without missing a beat, he responded, "Not at all; being the villains you describe, they have the perfect tools for 'whipping up sh*t'!"

    Sincerely,

    Bill
