tears and an epiphany  
I just watched the clip from The Stolen Earth.

I LOVE that all of the characters know at exactly the same time that the Daleks are comming. The reactions range from shock to fear, but one of them was my favorite. When Sarah Jane started crying I burst into irrational tears. I was like, "OMG, she's mourning the imminent death of her son," and it really got to me.

And I had an epiphany today! I'm sure all of you have thought of this already, but I'm usually a little slow on the uptake. The STOLEN Earth.

One of the themes this series is that planets are disappearing. Why? And how are the stars going out? Well, I don't think they are. I think the stars stay exactly where they always were, and it's the EARTH, that gets "stolen."

Yeah?

OH, THANK GOD. I felt incredibly dorky for just bursting into tears right then and there. I couldn't help it.

Oooo. I like your theory about the title. That's very cool.

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one. She plays that scene beautifully doesn't she? There's no hope.

You mean you haven't heard something similar before? I've come up with something new? Goodness, now it can't be right. But what if it is? *shifts eyes* That would be so cool.

She really did. I just... *wibbles*

Well, I haven't gotten out much, but yeah, I haven't heard that before. It's definitely a plausible idea though.

I thought that the whole Earth was what was getting stolen thing was rather obvious.

I mean.

The stars wouldn't be going out. Even if someone switched them all off at once somehow, the effects wouldn't be seen on Earth for quite sometime because we're still getting the light they gave off a very long time ago. Clearly the Earth has to be going somewhere...

Plus, in the preview or a clip or something somewhere, I saw a shot of Earth in the same shot as a bunch of other planets. I imagine the Daleks are stealing planets.

Don't really know for sure, I guess, but it seems about right. :)

Also, yes, Sarah Jane crying makes me sad. :(
