Weeping angels actually feed on “sadness energy,” rather than time energy. And Moffat is a weeping angel. He’s positioned himself in a job that can allow him to generate more sadness and thus continue feeding forever.
Hey, it’s a rare theory post! I’ve been seeing a lot of Rory=Master theories floating on the dash right now, and I think we’re forgetting the episode “The Doctor’s Wife.” Idris definitely seemed to have taken a liking to Rory, even calling him “the pretty one.” If she already knows that Rory is the Master (as she likely would, and as implied by the theory about the distress call in “The God Complex”), she wouldn’t be so fond of him.
TARDIS approves of Rory. I don’t think he’s the Master.
1.) Rory has lived too long? It’s still a possibility that the universe is trying to “correct” the fact that Rory has lived a very long time, but it feels unlikely given Rory’s recent death-defying escapades.
2.) Rory is already dead? I previously speculated that this was all just Amy’s dream, and that Rory’s deaths and near misses were her way of coping with the reality that he was dead outside. While we now know that Amy WAS dreaming, the universe we’ve been viewing is the true one, so this one’s pretty much out the window.
3.) Rory is still an Auton? The theory I still favor is that Rory remains an Auton in some overlapping universe. He still retains all his memories from when he was an Auton, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility (plus, Roranicus shows up in the next episode, so…). This might be refuted by the fact that he was proven to be human in The Almost People, but since he’s only an Auton SOME of the time, it could still somehow work out. Either that, or Auton technology is better at fooling machines than Flesh is.
4.) They’re going to kill Rory for real one day and make us all cry. Still likely. Possibly even MORE likely now, all things considered.
5.) River Song kills Rory. Rory has definitely proven himself to be “a good man.” The best she’s ever known? That remains to be seen.
6.) Rorydeath was just a distraction so that we wouldn’t even think about Amy. : (
P.S. Ganger Jen is a hypocrite. After all that preaching about not killing the Flesh, she killed a Flesh just to get Rory to trust her.
