So, which movie should you watch on Valentines day? 

Follow this super cute flow-chart for happily viewed bliss >>

Orion Scribner, A flow chart for finding bugs (if you’re a chicken). 2016, technical pen on graph paper, with digital coloring.

Inspired by the daily routine I saw when I had pet chickens, who are the best debuggers in the field.


Transcript: This is a flow chart with branching paths, so the transcript for it is like a very tiny Choose Your Own Adventure book.

  1. “A flow chart for finding bugs (if you’re a chicken).” Go to 2.
  2. “Keep your eyes out for bad guys while scratching twice with your left foot.” Go to 3.
  3. “See any bad guys?” If yes, go to 4. If no, go to 6.
  4. “Set off the klaxon so everybody knows.” A chicken with its neck all long in ET fashion, as they do, yelling, “Kedawket! Ket ket! Kedawket!” which is just what a chicken air-raid siren sounds like. Go to 5. 
  5. “Coast clear?” If no, return to 4. If yes, return to 2.
  6. “Scratch twice with right foot.” Go to 7.
  7. “Check for bugs.” The chicken bows her head and inspects the ground. Go to 8.
  8. “Any bugs?” If no, return to 2. If yes, go to 9.
  9. “Pick up the bug and prance around while yelling about how great it is.” A chicken going “BEEP beep BEEP beep BEEP beep.” Go to 10.
  10. “Ate it?” If yes, go to 12. If no, go to 11.
  11. “SOMEhow, someone heard you had a bug and THEY ate it.” The protagonist chicken says “Beep?” and watches in disappointment while another chicken eats the bug, going “nom nom.” Return to 2.
  12. “Say it was yummy.” A chicken fluffing out her feathers and saying “arrgwyly,” which I assure you is exactly the yummy-sound my chickens made about bugs, or especially popcorn. It sounds kind of like a pirate, or a dinosaur, or a pirate dinosaur, which is a perfectly good description of chickens. Return to 2.

River Song’s Doctor Who life in order

Gosh, River Song’s had a confusing life in Doctor Who. Born in the same episode where she revealed her true self to the Doctor, and (apparently) killing him while simultaneously shooting at her younger self – well, as the Twelfth Doctor commented in tonight’s Christmas special you’d need a flowchart to work it all out.

But luckily you now have that flowchart, as here at RadioTimes.com we’ve put together our best guess for River’s personal timeline. In other words, we’ve mapped out her chronological life from her birth in 2011’s a Good Man Goes to War to her final goodbye in 2013’s The Name of the Doctor, and you can see it all in order below (with recurring episodes colour-coded).

Not included are any off-screen adventures (so sorry, no Jim the Fish) or spin-off media, but apart from that we think it’s pretty complete. We’ve even thrown in a couple of DVD minisodes featuring River (First Night/Last Night) that were originally supposed to cap off her story.

A huge thank you to our friends at Radio Times for making this flow chart! Hopefully it helps to clear things up for all you Whovians out there (and for those of you who may want to rewatch the series from River’s perspective).
