The Daily Geek: The (Mostly) Doctor Who Edition

We start with a quick history lesson on Doctor Who: "Official Doctor Who Aging Timeline." Unlike the aging timelines of other famous people, The Doctor's seems to be running a little bit in the opposite direction.


Then we flashforward to this story about China banning time travel TV shows:

Now there’s an interesting trend in China’s film and television industry: more and more time-travel themed dramas are made and aired. In these time-travel based TV plays, usually the protagonist is from the modern time and for some reasons and via some means, travels through time and all the way back to the ancient China where he/she will constantly experience the "culture shock" but gradually get used to it and eventually develop a romance in that era. Though obviously the Chinese audience is found of this genre of shows, the country’s authority -General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television, to be exact, is not happy about this trend and calls a halt to the making of this type of drama.

So I'm assuming, no Doctor Who?

I've been having my eye on this delightfully squishy Adipose stress toy from Think Geek for quite some time:
