‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: is the U.S. government in possession of TARDIS blueprints?
Friday night’s new episode of Eureka dropped a little Doctor Who reference that made me laugh out loud. Zane hacks into Department of Defense computers to hunt down a plot point that needs hunting down, and then he asks of Fargo, Jo, and the others who put his illegal skills to use:
So, anything else you wanna know while I’m in there? Launch codes, defense plans, TARDIS blueprints?
I had to rewind and listen again to be sure I head that right.
This suggests either one of two possibilities. Either Doctor Who is a show enjoyed by the fine geeks of the town of Eureka — just as we already know that Battlestar Galactica is a geek-favorite in the Eureka universe, as it is in ours. Or else the Doctor has visited Eureka and there was some DoD involvement or connection with his visit.
I prefer the latter, I think…
