Firstly to clarify something- some commenters are describing the episode as playing out in a VR world
Actually I think it was just me who did that! Sorry! x
It seems that the scope of the simulation was quite limited. Why include CERN in that simulation? Their relevance in an alien invasion is hard to imagine.

This is going to lead to a couple of very interesting episodes I think! The *real* Doctor now knows that at some point they are coming – and when they do, they’ll have already ‘test invaded’ hundreds of different…[Read more]

They couldn’t not though. It was very briefly covered by the VR Doctor during a quick exchange with the VR Bill towards…[Read more]
