How old are you?

My friends say I should act my age, what’s my age again?

It’s easy to calculate someone’s age, it’s date of death minus date of birth. Unless they are still alive, or believed to be alive, on which case its today’s date minus date of birth.

So in Doctor Who, when Amy tries to vote in the episode the beast below, she is told by the computer that she is 1300 years old.

Did the computer assume because she was standing there she must be alive? Or did it have no record of her death?

I’d assume it had some logic in place that would mean it checked there wasn’t an impostor trying to vote.

So the question is does Amy Pond get abandoned on the future, on an alien planet or die on her travels?
