What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

Mary Poppins, A Timelord?


You might not think that Mary Poppins showing up on Google Streetview might necessarily indicate that she’s a millennia old Gallifreyan traveller, but just read fireflyastoria’s compelling argument below. (Hint: this is a Google Streetview view of Cardiff, Wales.)

So I was fiddling between Google and MapCrunch and do you know what I found?

Do you know who that is? Yep, that’s Mary Poppins.

Do you know where that is? Yep, that’s Cardiff. Specifically, that’s outside the Roald Dahl Plass.

Do you know what the Roald Dahl Plass is? Yep, the roof of Torchwood.

Do you know why Torchwood is there? Yep, that’s because of the rift in Cardiff, specifically that rift for a specific reason.

Do you know where the Doctor re-fuels the TARDIS?

So tumblr was right.

Mary Poppins IS the Doctor.

We must admit: she wears bowties and funny hats and has a bag that’s bigger on the inside.

    Okay, first a disclaimer: TVTropes will ruin your life.

    Now, on this page: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WMG/TimeLord open “The List Of…” menu and search the page for “Mary Poppins” and you will find that she has been suspected of being a time lord already, but I think you just confirmed it.

    I’ve come to believe that Ms. Frizzle of Magic School Bus fame is undoubtedly a Time Lord as well.

    Again, TVTropes will ruin your life:

    Mz. Frizzle is on the list of suspected Time Lords as well.

    I think they’re still time lords…remember the Doctor mentioning that the Corsair was sometimes a lady?  If they’re switching bodies/genders all the time, they can’t be expected to bother with gender-specific language.

    I remember watching Mary Poppins after reading Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, and suddenly realizing that it is a much more magic movie than I’d thought.
