Doctor Who Gossip’s you probably didn’t know


Time Lords exist! Sort of…     

Well, OK, they don’t really. But some people experience a rare form of synaesthesia – an involuntary crossover of sensory input – in which they are apparently able to perceive time. Those who experience the phenomenon often describe it as a circular formation, with years shading into one another and longer periods, such as decades, showing up in different colours. Dates, appointments and memories may have a ‘physical’ form and a place in the arrangement. Such time-space synaesthetes, as they’re known, can sometimes even perceive time as a ring encircling them. No word on the regeneration, though, and no one has come calling with a free Tardis. Yet.
