Morning Roundup: Doctor Who Reveals What Really Happened to Amy and Rory

Matt Smith American Psycho

“I’m killing my companions. Killing my companions is cool. Has anyone seen Clara?”

Remember when David Tennant went off to play a particularly insane Hamlet just as he was also leaving Doctor Who? And Christopher Eccleston went off to play Cobra Commander? And Paul McGann insisted that he was still the Doctor until finally they let him back on the show? And Sylvester McCoy started walking around with bird shit in his hair? And Colin Baker?

We love Doctor Who but there’s definitely a pattern here.

Your Morning Roundup keeps coming back to the Hunger Games. Don’t we all? Matt Smith certainly looks like he does.

"Never-before-seen material" from the first Hobbit movie? Good god, the movie-as-released was a month and a half long and included storylines and characters imported from the Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, the Books of Lost Tales, Moby-Dick, the Aubrey/Maturin novels, and several episodes of Mannix. What can Jackson possibly have left out?

Doesn't the War Doctor win the Hunger Games, by default given that he is, you know, the "War" Doctor?

You would need 24 doctors, 12 male and 12 female, to play the Hunger Games with incarnations of the Doctor.

We still have a long way to go.

Wait...if it's got Matt Smith in the lead, shouldn't it be British Psycho?

@4 The movie also starred a British actor, so no.

"It took 50 years, but we can now measure paper sizes with various incarnations of the Doctor."

I love seeing other people use "Robert Knepper moment." I want to create a meme, dammit!!!!!

PS: For those of you who don't know what a Robert Knepper moment is, read my rewatches of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Minor correction..... Christopher Eccleston played Destro, not Cobra Commander (Joseph Gordon Levitt).....
