Fixing the Past – “Father’s Day” & “The Aztecs”

We travel through time with Doctor Who and tweak this, change that, just clean things up a bit, to make it all better in the future.

Fixing the Past - “Father’s Day” & “The Aztecs”

Weddings!  Could they be a more awkward social affair?  The answer is, it turns out, yes – especially when one of the guests’ daughter travels back in time and causes a time paradox that leads to other guests being eaten by time monsters.  Get your hankies at the ready as Porter and John get in touch with their emotions for Father’s Day.

Funerals!  Isn’t it typical that you get entombed with all your possessions and then some history teacher from the 1960s wanders in and starts looting your corpse?  But Porter and John forgive Barbara as she wreaks (moderate) havoc in The Aztecs and in doing so we learn an ironclad rule of time travel that the past can never be changed… unless it can be changed when that would make a better story.
