Well, this isn't weird at all. Researchers at the Aberdeen Face Lab have put their intelligence and technology to work in an effort to find out what the average Time Lord looks like. You might be wondering how that's possible since Time Lords are a fictional race of aliens on "Doctor Who."

According to the BBC, the group used images of each actor to play the Doctor on the show and their "face averaging" technology to come up with the look, which they called "remarkable." "It's interesting that the face we have developed is not dominated by the features of any one of the actors to have played The Doctor," says David Robertson, who works for the Aberdeen Face Lab. "Rather it represents a combination of the averaged features of each actor to have taken on the role."

Really, this seems a lot like that old "Late Night with Conan O'Brien »
