Doctor Who Is Very Bullish on Paperbacks!


I am slowly working my way through Doctor Who; I just watched the fourth season episode “The Unicorn and the Wasp”, when the Doctor and his traveling companion Donna meet Agatha Christie. The episode is amusing all by itself, but what really had me cracking up was the end …

… when the Doctor pulls out a copy of a Christie book from the year 5,000,000,000, and it’s a paperback!

I guess this means Amazon doesn’t conquer the book world after all!

If you’re curious, you can catch the episode yourself on Netflix or Amazon.
