** Well, to be fair, you'd be seeing a crazy man slapping himself on the neck and saying a fish got him whether or not you also saw the fish itself.

** This isn't the first time the show has made this claim. Rose once said something very similar sometime during the David Tennant era.

*** And "The Magician's Apprentice" established that UNIT is ''constantly'' searching for signs of the Doctor's involvement in past historical events, enough to pinpoint where he's been.

** The Silence had been manipulating the U.S. government for a long time to ensure that the space suit would be constructed, so they'd probably planted commands to ignore their presence in White House staff and security personnel ''years'' ago.




to:

** You forget ''seeing'' or ''encountering'' the Silents, but ''hearing'' them in the absence of seeing them can be remembered. He probably jotted himself a "listen to that video with your eyes closed" note, then edited it by audio-only.

** The problem with writing it all off as TimeyWimeyBall is that even if you believe that the past changed so Kazran was never given control of the machine and he was only somehow still able to use it because he had become so much like his father that it fooled the machine... is that none of this would have happened in the first place if Kazran hadn't have been able to manipulate the machine so as to keep the storm going! And if he never had the ability to control the skies - presumably stopping the storm so various trading ships relating to his businesses COULD get through - then he wouldn't have so much power and wealth as to be able to tell The President [[FatherTed FECK OFF!]] when he asks Kazran if he wouldn't mind, terribly, NOT letting those people die.

* Speaking of the "You should kill us all on sight" video, when Canton first sends it to the Doctor, how is the Doctor able to use it? How does he remember he has it? He can't have been looking at a Silent the entire time he was doing the work to edit it and splice it into the TV feed, can he?

**I have a personal theory that the River that appeared at the end came straight from the Day of the Moon. The outfit is similar, if not the same, and she had just kissed the Doctor for what she had every reason to believe was the last time. She probably decided to cheer herself up by visiting Stormcage and giving her family the good news of her identity.

**I never thought time changed much at all in the end. Yes, the child probably resolved to be nice and that had some effect but life can still beat someone down and if he still met Abigail...yeah, I think Kazran was still a grumpy Scrooge up until that night. He looked into his younger self's face, realized truly what he had become, and all of the lessons of the night became clear at once. Older Kazran had a happy breakdown and transformed into a nicer person on the spot. His brainwaves jolted into a different pattern and the machine no longer recognized them. Even if it readjusts over time, it wouldn't be in time for the ship. So yes, brainwaves not DNA.

*** Not to mention Recap/DoctorWhoS33E10JourneyToTheCentreOfTheTardis, which shows us how the TARDIS usually maintains herself. But it's true the Doctor stole her from a repair shop when she was many centuries old when she was stolen (Type 40 TARDISes were being replaced with newer models), and it's true that her chameleon circuit no longer works. (There's an early episode that shows her looking like a pipe organ, a painted dresser, and a fancy gateway.) The Ninth Doctor explained that he hasn't fixed the chameleon circuit because he likes the police-box look. So we KNOW of at least one element that's permanently broken.

** We see several TARDISes in the repair shop from which the First Doctor stole the TARDIS, Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor. TARDISes are bio-grown, and don't reach maturity until they're several hundred years old. The TARDIS was old and outdated by newer models when the Doctor stole her, meaning she was probably around 1,000 years old or more. All TARDISes come with chameleon circuits, so they can be disguised -- in ancient Rome a TARDIS might look like a plinth, in frontier America it might look like a teepee. Sexy looks like a police box because her chameleon circuit is broken. (In the 20th century we have seen her look like a pipe organ, a painted cabinet, and a fancy gateway.) The Ninth Doctor explained that he hadn't fixed the chameleon circuit because he LIKES the police-box look.
