"Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck." These cryptic messages left on 17 DVD's leave Sally Sparrow on a journey to assist the Doctor and Martha Jones, who are trapped in 1969. But Sally is in 2007, and they won't meet until 2008. Strange?

The hologram Doctor uses the term "time capsule" when referring to the Tardis. This has a double meaning: while a "time capsule" could be a time-ship or time-machine (such as the Tardis), it is more commonly used to mean a cache of items and messages that is meant to be found by future archaeologists. The messages and DVD extra that the Doctor left for Sally to find, and even the Tardis itself, could be considered such items. See more
