Article previously read:
- Mickey was born circa 1981. In at least one version of Mickey's life history, thanks to the agency of time travel, he met the adult version of Rose in 1987, whom the Doctor had transported to that time period. As a result, he "imprinted" on her and when they met again, he had a strong connection to her. (TV: Father's Day)
- However, as time changed during the event, we do not know if this happened to the main Mickey or an alternative version.
I removed the italicized bit, because of course we know it happened to the "main Mickey". The events of Father's Day clearly happened to Jackie (hence her central arc in "The Parting of the Ways"). There's no logical reason why they wouldn't have happened to Mickey. Mickey falls apart as a feckless, simpering character unless you grant that he's unusually loyal to her because he bonded with her as a child in "Fathers Day". Indeed, Moffat may have given us the term, "wibbly-wobbly timey wimey, but RTD pioneered its conceptual use. Series 1 is all about time displacement. Or to give it RTD's name, "the Big Bad Wolf".CzechOut ☎ | ✍ 03:17, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Micky's mother Edit
The article states that Rose may have known how to contact Micky's mother because of her line in Rose. However, in Rise of the Cybermen and the article itself both state that Mickey's mother was dead, so there is no way Rose could have contacted her. This is probably a discontiunity issue, but we could explain this by saying Mickey simply had not told Rose yet. Should I change the article to reflect this information?
The lead seems a bit of a misnomer. Not 100% where "1981" comes from, but Father's Day clearly establishes that he's old enough to walk and talk by 87. In short, I don't think Mickey was ever portrayed as a teenager, being well into his twenties minimum when first introduced. Would "typical twentysomething" also suit the recent lead rewrite? -- Tybort (talk page) 08:48, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
