Welcome to the Wiki-wordmark Geek Mythology

Thanks for your recent edits! We hope you'll keep on editing with us. This is a great time to have joined us, because now you can play the Game of Rassilon with us and win cool stuff! Well, okay, badges. That have no monetary value. And that largely only you can see. But still: they're cool! We've got a couple of important quirks for a Wikia wiki, so let's get them out of the way first.
British English, please
We generally use British English round these parts, so if you use another form of English, please be sure you set your spell checker to BrEng, and take a gander at our spelling cheat card.
Spoilers aren't cool
We have a strict definition of "spoiler" that you may find a bit unusual. Basically, a spoiler, to us, is anything that comes from a story which has not been released yet. So, even if you've got some info from a BBC press release or official trailer, it basically can't be referenced here. In other words, you gotta wait until the episode has finished its premiere broadcast to start editing about its contents. Please check the spoiler policy for more details.
Other useful stuff
Aside from those two things, we also have some pages that you should probably read when you get a chance, like:

If you're brand new to wiki editing — and we all were, once! —  you probably want to check out these tutorials at Wikipedia, the world's largest wiki:

Marking pages for deletionEdit

Should you wish to propose a page for deletion chuck this on {{proposed deletion}} on the page it puts the Template:Proposed deletion tag on the page and puts it in a prop delete category that sysops reguarly check. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 05:15, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Just wanted to ask a quick questionEdit

In the page history to Aberystwyth University you note that it's recently changed it's name. I was just curious, when it's seen in Random Shoes, is it seen/referenced as Aberystwth University or University of Wales, Aberystwyth? If it's the latter we rally should move it back to that name (as that's how it appeared in Torchwood). As the in-universe stuff is more of the baseline than real-world. Thanks. --Tangerineduel 16:37, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

That's perfectly clear (and detailed) thanks. --Tangerineduel 04:52, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

IMDB Edit

Mainly because it's unreliable. Apparently, anyone can edit it, meaning it can become very unreliable and people can add false information. (I say apparently because I never use it or link to it, and what's what other Users have reported.) An example of this was with Harriet Jones: IMDB stated that she would appear in The End of Time; which she did not. We had linked to this, and since it was proven false, it was decided we should not link to IMDB. Other sources not to site form can be found here. Thanks. Mini-mitch\talk 11:48, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I did wonder about maybe putting something about characters only appearing in flashbacks and the like, but fair enough. Geek Mythology 15:31, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

River Song Edit

By no means is this a criticism on your editing skills; but we have to go on what an episode says and if River Song said she kill the Dalek and told the Dalek she was going to kill it, we have to accept she killed it. I hope this has not put you down in any way, as you are a fantastic contributor, and I hope you keep up your good wood. Mini-mitch\talk 20:24, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

Don't worry, I'm not put down in anyway, but as a Film & TV Studies graduate, looking closely and analysing how shows are written, put together etc has just been drummed into me. Obviously the most likely outcome is that she did indeed kill the Dalek (shooting or otherwise), but to me, it is still speculation. I hope you realise that I had the best of intentions, but blame Moffat, you have to admit his stories are begging to be second guessed. Geek Mythology 20:35, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

Ganger Pond Edit

Nope. We don't know when Amy was swapped. We need to wait for an inuniverse source before we add anything about anything else concerning Amy. All that should be on the page is a decription of what happened in The Almost People.

DWC did say she was swapped before series 6, but remember that that lie. They could also be lying about this. Please wait for an inuniverse source, such as a TV story before adding anything that was seen in other episodes.

Also, you might want to see the forum discussion. Forum:Add Ganger Amy as companion in series 6. Mini-mitch\talk 11:45, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

River Song in reverse Edit

Hi, I've had a look at some of your responses. In particular I was interested by "Call me" and "You didn't answer your phone" link, which you pointed out, indicating that for River - America came one step before Pandorica. I think it is safe to assume that Moffat was throwing a serious hint there. I am convinced!


However, I am not sure that Demon's Run came one step before America for River. I have reason to think it came after Byzantium from River's perspective. I know that you are rather convinced that every televised episode so far is River directly backwards. Therefore I thought you might have a solid connecting link which you can point my attention to


I would be grateful for your thoughts on this.JoelJoel321 16:06, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

BBC trailer Edit

I do apologise sincerely, for not leaving you a message regarding the BBC trailer. I have now left my thoughts on the talk page. Thanks. MM/Want to talk? 12:37, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Warning Edit

Your upload at has been deleted. Please do not re-upload until after the premiere broadcast of the first episode of series 7. It is a clear violation of our spoiler policy to upload images of stories which have yet to air. Moreover, the image is unnecessary large, given that it is over 100kb. To help our mobile users, pic sizes larger than 100kb should generally be avoided if possible, and there's no obvious reason why this rule couldn't have been followed in this case.

Apologies, as a promotional image, I presumed it would come under the same spoiler policy as the trailer, which is also included on the page. Geek Mythology 09:50, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Infoboxes Edit

Please stop what you're doing with infoboxes. As explained by Thread:133001, infoboxes are being cleaned over the next 72 hours at least. Thanks :)
czechout@Wikia    22:32: Sun 02 Jun 2013

My apologies, I have to admit I missed that thread. (If it helps, I was added | not removed them) Geek Mythology 22:35, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

thanks Edit

Thanks for undoing that, buddy. God, this is embarrassing! Someone got ahold of my computer for the three seconds that I was away from it, and started vandalising immediately apparently. I feel kind of guilty, but it really wasn't my fault. Anyway, thank you for undoing that, and please don't have any hard feelings towards me.
--SOTO 12:49, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

No worries, I kinda figured something like that would either be spam or a frape of some kind. Geek Mythology 12:50, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
You have no idea how embarrassing this is for me! Why am I even explaining myself? ;D

Strax field report Edit

Hi! I had to delete one of the Strax field report pages you created, as it violates Tardis:Spoiler policy. The Strax reports are kind of a special case that you may have missed. You can read the discussion at Thread:130675. When the information is no longer a spoiler, I will restore the page. Thanks! Shambala108 19:07, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

No worries, sorry about that. Geek Mythology 22:16, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Christmas cheer Edit

Happy holidays!

As this fiftieth anniversary year comes to a close, we here at Tardis just want to thank you for being a part of our community — even if you haven't edited here in a while. If you have edited with us this year, then thanks for all your hard work.

This year has seen an impressive amount of growth. We've added about 11,000 pages this year, which is frankly incredible for a wiki this big. November was predictably one of the busiest months we've ever had: over 500 unique editors pitched in. It was the highest number of editors in wiki history for a year in which only one programme in the DWU was active. And our viewing stats have been through the roof. We've averaged well over 2 million page views each week for the last two months, with some weeks seeing over 4 million views!

We've received an unprecedented level of support from Wikia Staff, resulting in all sorts of new goodies and productive new relationships. And we've recently decided to lift almost every block we've ever made so as to allow most everyone a second chance to be part of our community.

2014 promises to build on this year's foundations, especially since we've got a full, unbroken series coming up — something that hasn't happened since 2011. We hope you'll stick with us — or return to the Tardis — so that you can be a part of the fun!

One Born Edit

Well, we don't need an article about the documentary, really, until and unless it is actually mentioned in a DWU source. Unlike our article for, say, Sea of Souls — where a strong case can be made that the show is actually important to the development of Doctor Who — there is no strong connection between One Born Every Minute and Doctor Who. There's just a framing device in an obscure comedy sketch.

Don't worry, though, (much of) your work at the page will be integrated into the resulting single page after the merge.

Comic Relief, however, are giving the thing a different name — Call the Midwife (One Born Every Minute) — and I'm mulling over the best way to move forward technically, since that name would have an impact on pipe tricking.

Hold up on editing, if you would, until the merge happens. Thanks :)
czechout@Wikia    18:57: Thu 06 Feb 2014

Yeah, I had already scanned the initial revision of that page. I still don't think that One Born qualifies as a valid subject for an article. It's connection is, as far as I know, only behind the scenes, and only in a comedy sketch that is obviously an invalid source for writing our articles.
So let's just revert to standard dab practices: One Born Every Minute (TV story). That would allow for One Born Every Minute (TV series), should the need ever arise.

Page moves Edit

Hi! It's probably better, if you want a page moved/renamed, to ask an admin, or to put a rename tag on the article. When you move a page, you automatically create a redirect, and most of the time that's not necessary. However, only admins can delete the unnecessary redirects. Thanks.
