In episode 11, the Doctor handily visited Cardiff in September 2006. In the picture we saw various FGW trains, so FGW win that franchise...

In episode 12, Bad Wolf, in one shot, a SWT liveried unit was seen (so SWT still have the franchise in year 200, 100?!), it was an Mk1, so we are happy to say, that one of the Lymington CIGs will be repainted into SWT livery (again!) and ran on the line. Good ta know the slammers last so long!

Yeah, I was pleased to see the Slammer. Must've been going fairly fast because it was quite blurred.

Was pretty nice to see it, maybe I'll time travel into the future and see the slammer...

I was seriously hoping for a franchise confirmation there...

Doctor Who, well let's not venture my opinions on that. Suffice to say I don't watch it, for reasons I'd rather not post.

I can give you a clue:

Whaaaaa im confused man!!
In simple terms for you mate, we are talking about when trains appeared in the new series of Doctor Who when he travelled hundreds of years after 2005 and saw a slammer. Also next year (2206) when FGW trains were seen at Cardiff.
