Perhaps the biggest news here is that a DeLorean Motor Company still exists. Based in Humble Texas, they supply parts and occasionally build new cars for DeLorean enthusiasts.
Now, they've announced a new electric version of the car. The company says they will begin selling the car built-to-order in 2013 for around $90,000. They say it will be able to hit 125 miles per hour, and have a range of at least 70 miles per charge.
Still, I can't shake the feeling that if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, the battery's gonna take a serious s**t.
"So, do they ever get off the island?" "I, don't, know. Uhura, is still, receiving, the, transmission!" "Gilligan!" "Sorry, skipper!" 20th century TV. One of the perks of faster than light interstellar travel!

An old picture of a Beatles jam session contains a man who looks almost exactly like Matt Smith's Doctor. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If I had a box that gave me access to all of time and space, chilling with the Beatles would be pretty high up on my list of things to do. I'm surprised it took The Doctor until his eleventh generation to get around to it.
Steven Moffat is pretty excited about the photo too.
"Bloody hell!!!" He tweeted, "Clearly we're going to make that episode!! Wonder what it will be like."
