Science fiction and writing

And the overall mood of the Twilight Zone writing was…

  • Extremely Depressing

  • The most common theme being ‘Death kills both the man and the girl for wasting his time (or out of spite).’

  • There were also a handful of ‘Death kills all the children too…’

Introduction to the Doctor Who Universe…

So there’s this guy, and he’s called The Doctor. He is an alien known as a ‘Time Lord’. He can travel through time and most of his adventures involve solving some kind of problems. Settings include several places from World War 2 to alien planets. He usually has a human as a companion with him on his trips. He generally has no weapons other than high intelligence.

Additionally, the Doctor can regenerate when killed. When he does, he is still a Time Lord, but he becomes a completely new person(ality). The introductory episode we will be watching today features the Doctor’s 11th incarnation, played by Matt Smith.For non-Doctor Who people in the room, any questions?
