The Doctor Knight

The Doctor’s motorbike and shattering shards evoke a certain Knight.

His coat is from Willy Wonka, his hair still immaculate, his bow tie still cool …

… Yet the Doctor’s motorbike and those shattering shards seem familiar from elsewhere.

It’s funny…for the first half of this season, I was all over any spoilers, trying to predict what would happen next..haven’t felt that way about this half. Part of it is that I have no idea what will happen with the new companion, but I think I’m also missing the Ponds so much that I just want the Doctor back, no matter what happens.

Hmmm…rip-off? Or spoof? Hard to tell …
