The Horrifying Truth About the Matt Smith Years of Doctor Who

We found this on Tumblr, and now we cannot un-think it, and it hurts.

From tonystarklordofwinterfell:

So, I was at lunch with a friend and his sister after seeing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, catching up on stuff and talk turned to the new series of Doctor Who – our expectations, Peter Capaldi, Jenna possibly leaving, the Matt Smith era – and his sister suddenly raises an interesting point.

“Isn’t the Matt Smith era kind of similar to Twilight?”

This caused both my friend and I to pause, and look at each other with a similar expression of puzzlement.

“Yeah – I mean the storyline is very similar,” she continued “The main female character has to choose between two men from different races, makes her choice and has baby. Baby grows up abnormally fast, and ends up marrying the other man.”

Despite how this theory glosses over some of the plot, it still kind of stunned me as I realisation slowly dawned on me.

I had watched a sci-fi variant of Twilight.

*crying* Noooooo, why would you do this to us, we will never be okay again, we’ll keep thinking of River as the creepy vampire baby, Rory is now Edward Cullen DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU’VE DONE?

Mummy, it's me, Melody - don't you know me?

Mummy, it's me, Melody – don't you know me?

We’re sorry. We’re so, so sorry.
