Everyone is smarter than Gwen Cooper - abates
Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

I spotted the latest pack of Doctor Who Top Trumps at Whitcoulls today when I was buying some DVDs, so I bought it to see if it contained as much in the way of silliness as the Transformers Top Trumps packs do. I was not disappointed.

Selected characters in order of intelligence, according to Top Trumps:

  • The Eleventh Doctor (55)
  • River Song (52)
  • Winston Churchill (52)
  • Amy Pond (50)
  • Davros (50)
  • Rassilon (50)
  • The Master (47)
  • Luke Smith (45)
  • Jenny (30)
  • Gwen Cooper (26)
  • Jackson Lake (25)

Wow, seriously? There's like three cards with a lower intelligence than Gwen, and one of those is water (yes, the water from Waters of Mars, but still). And surely Jenny and the Master should have scores of 55, cause one's a clone of the Doctor, and the other's his equal. Are they saying that Winston Churchill is smart enough to invent time travel? Or River Song could turn the entire world into clones of Alex Kingston? (actually, come to think of it, that's just plausible. And possibly terrifying for the Doctor.)

Amy Pond, as smart as Davros and Rassilon? WTF? Doctor/Donna is way smarter than Amy. And Winston, while I sure he was a smart man, there is no way he should rate a 52. I love River Song but she is not smarter than Rassilon and the Master and Davros. Maybe close but not above.

And Amy is not a clone of the Doctor. She is a manipulation of his DNA, which means that she is more like a child (of a single parent, yes, but a clone implies a near exact copy).

Ah, I stand corrected. But even so, you'd expect a child of the Doctor's to be almost as clever as he is. Perhaps they figure she's not as smart because she lacks life experience?
