Fridge / Doctor Who 2011 CS "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe"


  • Fridge Brilliance: Christmas trees, being pines, are monoecious, meaning that they have both "male" and "female" parts on the same tree. They're actually a terrible choice for a story which pulls the "mothers are strong" trope, since they're a "single gender" species. So then, why do these Christmas trees make a big deal about gender? They're not really Christmas trees. They're an alien species that resembles Christmas trees.
  • Fridge Horror: What if the Doctor and Co. had shown up when the Doctor intended? They'd either be caught in the middle of the acid rain, or they'd be in the middle of a sea of battery acid.
  • Fridge Logic: Why is Cyril sleeping with his glasses on?
