Dr Who No Longer Off-Topic

Recommended Posts

Heard an interview today on R4 with the author of an authorised Dr Who novel.

The idea is that aliens control the Square Mile, selling time through credit cards - if you need an extra hour, you stick it on credit. But for every hour you pay with 5 minutes of your lifespan ... on a compounding basis. Hehehe!

Didn't catch the author's name, but she said she used to work in the City and reckons nothing has changed there.

Artists should be leading the greatest issue of our time - unpayable debt. Or maybe Damian Hearst has been doing that all along with the financing for his bling skull ...

I doubt Damien Hurst understands unpayable debt or anything to do with economics. He must go to bed and laugh himself to sleep every night at the thought of all the idiots paying millions of pounds for the shit "art" he makes!

Science fiction doing what science fiction does best.

Sounds good. If every 5 minute slot in an 85 year lifespan could be traded for 1 hour you would live to be a thousand and twenty years old.

(Then at 1020 years old you just default on the debt and flee to Turkish Cyprus... ;) )

Bloody aliens. Can gold protect you from them?

Only from the Cybermen.

But the 5 mins keep compounding - you could be dead this time next year!
