Doctor Who has at all times been a sequence that factors and laughs at followers who need to attempt to piece collectively a constant continuity throughout all its tales, however even by Doctor Who requirements, forgetting a complete world invasion barely greater than a decade in the past (y’know, simply earlier than many of the present’s viewers had been born, you absolute fossil you) would possibly look like a stretch.

The key conceit of the present is that you simply would possibly flip a nook, discover a blue field, and out of the blue be whisked away by area and time to a world of journey. Which doesn’t actually work if the British city squares of the Doctor Who universe all function memorials to the victims of the Daleks and slimming capsules must be examined for Adipose DNA.
But on the identical time, Doctor Who simply loves an important large Hollywood area invasion, and making these two core elements of the present mesh is a nightmare for continuity.

Life of Ryan
Ryan was born in 1998 or 1999. As a toddler, he attended Redlands Primary School at across the identical time London was hit by a “terrorist attack” when store home windows dummies began capturing individuals. A yr later a spaceship crashed into Big Ben, though this was later dismissed as a hoax. That Christmas Day, when Ryan was round eight years previous, each human with O damaging blood obtained up in a trance and went and stood on a tall constructing whereas a big spaceship hung over London.
