Mary Poppins, A Timelord?

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

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.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
