Just because you want a life-size skeleton in your room, that doesn’t automatically make you a weirdo. Maybe you’re a medical student, maybe a bone doctor, maybe it’s Halloween, or maybe you are just a weirdo, which is fine too.

I always wondered what it might be like if Doctor Who took place in a steampunk alternative universe. I think it would be pretty cool to have a TARDIS filled with gears and giant steam engines, and Cybermen and Daleks made from copper and brass.
