As for logic being applied to Dr Who... sometimes I really wish they would. What used to be a Science Fiction series is now science fantasy.
It depends on the type of plastic, and Nestene plastic is not conventional plastic (that's from Spearhead from Space) so as the Doctor says "I have no idea how long you'll last".
There is logic behind Doctor Who, it can just seem a bit jumbled up sometimes, but it all makes sense if you know where to look.
Take The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang for instance, everyone goes on about the Doctor escaping being a predestination paradox, but as he mentions to Rory the Pandorica isn't actually as perfect as the Alliance thought it was (which is why Rory protects it). The predestination loop likely came about as a result of the Doctor rewriting history to produce a new version of events where the loop could happen repeatedly for eternity. If someone misses the explanation behind Rory staying behidn with the Pandorica then they will miss the explanation behind the predestination paradox. It can become a bit of a nuisance, especially for those of us that do notice it. There are occassionally plot holes that pop up when somebody edits out a vital scene from the episode (liek Boatswain's disappearance in The Curse of the Black Spot) but these can be ignored for the most part.
