article cleaned up

rambling article had a lot speculation and relatively little to do with the Whoniverse. I put in some actual examples. --Stardizzy2 21:03, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Page name

The page should be left as 'temporal paradox' it's what has been used in multiple articles and in-universe sources. 'Most people' is kinda a subjective term. --Tangerineduel 14:41, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Jack Harkness

Ok, so the article says Jack was in WWII as three different points of his life, but wasn't he there four times? using his personal time line, the first would be when he was a con artist trying to scam the Doctor and Rose, the second would be during the time he spent waiting to find the Doctor after newly becoming immortal (while working for Torchwood), then when he went back to the dance hall the night before the real Captain Jack Harkness died, and lastly when he was frozen? I've always wondered about that b/c where ever I look the count is always different that mine. --BJ 26 April 2009, 9:50PM Standard Eastern Time

The key phrase in the paragraph to which you refer is "at one stage". It's perfectly true to say that "at one stage" of WWII — namely, for the period of The Doctor Dances story — there were only three versions of Jack about. The "fourth Jack" — the one from from Captain Jack Harkness — was only around for the very brief evening in which that episode was set. On the other hand, the sentence would be equally valid in saying that "at one stage of WWII, four Jacks were around". It's just easier concentrating on the three "main" Jacks because then you don't have to explain the complexity that the fourth Jack represents. The full details of Jack's existence in WWII are best left to the main Jack article; what's here is more than enough information to establish the nature of this kind of temporal paradox.

I don't think this belongs here. I think that only paradoxes pointed out as such in the narrative really belong here. I mean,no plots of stories (so far) hinge on the presence of Jack during World War II.--Stardizzy2 18:26, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

The Big Bang

What type of paradox would the Big Bang paradox come under? The Doctor only goes back in time because Rory showed him the screwdriver, alerting him to the fact he went back in time to give Rory the screwdriver in the first place? The Thirteenth Doctor 23:19, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Temporal Anomaly

Are Temporal Anomalies and Temporal Paradoxes similar in any way? to me 13:24, March 24, 2012 (UTC)
