Episode 239: It’s Not a Leaf, It’s a Bomb

Who could have seen that coming?

I’m actually pretty sure the first time I saw this episode I thought Moffat was really clever for the whole “bells of St. John” thing. And you know, I still do. On the other hand though, he’s aware enough to make a joke about it, but where did the St. John’s Ambulance logo go during all those years between like 1970-something and now? In universe the exterior design of the TARDIS isn’t supposed to change so… where dit that logo go? It’s The Bells of St. John, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on March 30, 2013.
