    I have friends that have been glued to BBC this weekend, since there's a Dr.Who marathon.

    I still can't get into it.

    Whatever. Nothing in any given Dr. Who episode should be expected to make sense when compared to any other Dr. Who episode. It's not Science Fiction. It's complete Fantasy wrapped in the dressings of Tech Futurism.

    Don't get me wrong... I love it.... but it makes no sense and is completely and utterly inconsistent.

    Technically speaking yeah, if the doctor can essentially bring back Gallifrey, one would think it possible to save the Ponds.

    Yes. Because it had a backup on the TARDIS.

    That's how I took it. It was a sub-routine running on backed up software. Heck, of all the things the sonic screwdriver has been silently upgraded to do, this is probably the least hard jump to make.

    Nice to see someone in sci-fi has a proper data management policy in place.
