Source tagEdit

I've place a source tag on the name of the planet, because I'm unclear where we're getting the spelling. To my ear, it sounds like Matt is saying "Alfalfa", not "Alfava". If anyone has a clear source, it should be noted in a behind-the-scenes note. CzechOut | 22:25, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

I think that's the spelling used in the Radio Times synopsis. --Golden Monkey 22:47, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Wikipedia gives it as 'Alfalva'. Poggin 01:43, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Worlds in Time, lists the spelling as "Alfaffa Metraxis" (as listed on two viewscreens available in the Shop). To know knowledge, that's the first "in-universe" source for spelling, though of course it's of questionable canonicity. -Porlob talk to me 16:43, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
Hmmmmm, very interesting. Anybody wanna fire up the DVDs and tell us what it says on the closed captioning?

Natives Edit

Do we know the Weeping Angels to be natives of the planet? The Aplan are mentioned as having built the temple complex, and we know that they were real as the Doctor confirms it. It appears that the Aplan were wiped out by the Weeping Angels (the 'mysterious' end to their civilisation) but that surely does not make the Weeping Angels native to the planet - no more than they are native to Earth.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the Aplan are the natives and the Angels wiped them out. --Golden Monkey 22:47, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Mazes of the Dead Edit

In the episode, this title is stated to be only occasional, with a more normal name of an Aplan Mortarium. In the article I have assumed that this pluralises to 'mortaria' - if anybody has any better ideas, please suggest. Poggin 23:48, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
