Back in August of last year, Gordon Long brought this meme to my attention, which he got from Danny Garcia:

Sure, it's images from 'Star Trek' ("Arena" & "Turnabout Intruder") and from 'Batman' (Who knows where the Batmobile image comes from?  That background in the rear projection might be a clue for some Batfanatic.)  But for me, it's a reference to a specific episode of 'Doctor Who'.

But first, let me just say that O'Bviously this had to be the Batmobile which the Caped Crusader kept in storage in the United Kingdom for whenever he visited the Sceptr'd Isle.  (But not as seen in the three episodes about Lord Ffogg and Lady Penelope Peasoup.  That took place in another TV dimension.)  After all, if the Gorn is driving, it's not an American car.

Now that we have that out of the way, we got some splainin to do.....


From Gary K. McD for the IMDb:
It's April 22, 2011, the day the Doctor is supposed to die.  But time seems to be stuck at 5:02 p.m. London streets are clogged not only with automobiles but also Roman chariots; pterodactyls fly in the sky. The Holy Roman Emperor, Winston Churchill, calls on a prisoner to explain what is happening. In fact, all Time seems to be occurring all at once. The Doctor determines that a fixed point in Time has been altered or prevented from occurring. That fixed point is his own death at Lake Silencio where History records that River Song killed him. Of course, not all is as it seems, particularly as it relates to the Doctor himself.

With all of Time happening at once, then that would splain why Kirk and the Gorn were in the British Batmobile on April 22, 2011.  And so that is why I would accept this O'Bvious joke meme to be Toobworld canon.
