Can't You Read? - PS Shapes by Girl-on-the-Moon Can't You Read? - PS Shapes by Girl-on-the-Moon
These were the symbols painted on the Doctor's cot/crib in 'A Good Man Goes to War' as best as I could figure them. Since the screenshots I referenced were blu-ray quality, I think they're as spot on as most anyone could get.

To get these fabulous Photoshop shapes for yourself, head on over to my newly updated Doctor Who Ultimate Shape Pack and follow the download instructions! (The thumbnail below) Enjoy!



Caution, there may be spoilers in the comments.

Oh, and, credit to `Princess-of-Shadows for the textures I used in my examples, which can be found here: [link]

I think the one at the top in the line formation is the Doctors name and the one at the bottom is Rivers name.

awesome! how did you get the symbols to be that color in the example image? so it looks like it was painted as it was on the crib?

It was just a pattern overlay, where the pattern was a stock photo of rusty goodness. Then, I beveled and embossed.

You are now aware that the top set of symbols resemble the Google logo.

It would explain where the Doctor gets his infinite knowledge.

I think the wood on the cot may have sentient qualities and is therefore able to label itself with the name of the child placed within it. As for the Doctor's children being locked away in the time war, could someone point the way to that reference. I have a idea about River but if the Doctor had more than one child who was the mother or father of his granddaughter then my idea may be no good.

You know River showed the Doctor what was written on the cot and then he realized she was the daughter? Well how did he know just from this writing, cause the cot was his wasn't it? So surely it would say his name, not Rivers :/ I was just a bit confused and wondered if you could explain :D haha

I think when River/Melody asked "Can't you read?" it was Amy who thought (the camera shows her point of view rather than the Doctor's) that the Doctor was looking at the name on the Cot (which is most likely the Doctor's name because all the inscriptions look as though they're the same age), but actually if you follow his eyeline he's looking at the prayer leaf which Amy left inside the cot. River/Melody later picks this up and shows it to Amy and Rory to tell them who she was in the same way she showed the Doctor.

I suspect that, while the camera was pointing to the cot, River was actually indicating the prayer leaf inside it (the one she used to show Amy and Rory who she was).
Somebody else here has a theory that the cot has enough sentient qualities to be able to label itself with the name of the child most recently placed in it (and since River's flesh-consciousness was put down for a brief moment, that would also explain it). =)

I think he looked at the embroidery that the woman from the forest gave amy, since it was in the cot at the time.

I think it might have been the embroidered 'leaf' which he glances down at, although the camera work is a little unclear...

I'm assuming it's not a name, but perhaps something along the lines of 'child'. Unless the Doctor painted on 'Melody Pond' for the gift, but it's not really clear.

Aren't the names on the crib, the names of the Doctor first Childeren? He used to be a grandfather before he "murdered" all the other Time Lords. (sacrificing his whole family by locking them up in the Time War, to safe the whole universe) It was soooo sad when Amy asked the Doctor if he ever had children :(
