Doctor Who story generator is on par with actual show writers

Today's Best Thing on the Internet award goes to this little gem from UK pop culture blog Us vs Th3m, which produces rather convincing plot lines for Doctor Who using only six lines of JavaScript.

Here's my favourite random Doctor Who plot (so far):

The Doctor has always wanted to show Clara Telos, but the TARDIS team are immediately arrested.

The Doctor, Clara, and Clara’s two charges have tough choices to make about the Rasillon’s son. Dematerialising the TARDIS at exactly the right moment saves the day.

Paul McCartney stuns critics in the role of the villain.
