“Threads” is obviously a reference to the brilliant film
Threads, set and primarily filmed in Sheffield. What else was initially set in Sheffield? S.11, of course!
Now, we must think what 11 could signal- my personal theory is that it links to episode
11 of Who- “The Rescue”. This is part of the serial “The Mutants” (also “The Dead Planet”, “The Daleks”, etc.).
From here we must ask ourselves what this has to do with anything. “Have you just been making this up as you go along, DalekCheese?” I hear you ask. Well, the answer is a resounding no
“The Mutants” is, as I am sure you’re all aware, also the title of the Pertwee story, in which the eponymous Mutants are known as mutts
. A mutt, obviously, is a dog; and what else is a dog? K-9!
So, using a little elementary numerology, we may determine that K- the 11th letter of the alphabet (this number is the “check” on the previously potentially inaccurate guess at S.11)- is to have 9 subtracted from it, resulting in 2, or in letters, B; thus, we arrive at 2B (the change in number/letter order is due to “11”, in Roman Numerals, being written XI, whereas the swapped version is IX, or 9- ie. the previously mentioned K-9).
2B- clearly meant to be written “BB”- IS A PRODUCTION CODE!
The serial with the production code BB was “The War Machines”. This featured the exit of Dorothy “Dodo” Chaplet. Now we arrive at the crux of the problem, because “BB” isn’t just
a production code, oh no! Our Lurker is far too clever for that!
No, “BB” is also an acronym- “BBC Book”. So, we must think of BBC books that feature exiting dodos- arriving, through some basic deduction, at the BBC book “The Last Dodo”. This starred the 10th Doctor.
We’re obviously getting another 10th Doctor.
Quite simple logic, really.
