I have been having strange science-fictional dreams

1. One involving our former R&D director type person being controlled by a Dalek.

2. A complex time travel story with someone being sent back in time to a time-line in which Shakespeare didn't exist with a copy of the complete works of Shakespeare, to pretend to be Shakespeare and write them. However, we were to infer that he actually not only 'wrote' the original 37 plays but also wrote a lot more of his own, because just before I work up this flashed forward to the present day with a song by Morecambe and Wise about how great Shakespeare's 206 plays were, including of course Love's Labours Won.

Incidentally, I have always wondered if the songs in dreams really do rhyme the way they seem to - since I don't remember the words I can't tell. Maybe my subconscious can generate rhymes - just as my subconscious knew that Shakespeare wrote 37 plays which I don't think my conscious mind would have known yesterday.
