So is Dr. Who the answer then? Or looking for the next in the series based on some pattern?

Altars, Tardis / Time travel, Native Rhythms

"Tardis" is right, "Altars" is almost right, no to rest

Dr Who was just a hint towards part of the answer (Tardis). There is a sequence involved

I think a recap might be in order.

We start at a TABLE (in church - ALTARS is *almost* correct)
and travel by A BLUE BOX. (TARDIS is the correct answer here)
The journey is VERY POOR, (as in appaling, not penniless)
but it will take us to AN ISLAND. (In the Mediterranian)
There we find NOTHING FERAL, (What is the opposit of feral?)
only a MUSICAL BEAT (I might have also have found a way of measuring quantities)


Once you have found two correct answers next to each other, hopefully the rest will fall into place

(By the way, I have had one person PM me the correct answer - no prizes as to who...)

I'm understanding how the puzzle works...I think. I just can't seem to get the final answer. Is it tack the first two on the end and then reverse them and add them to the front? Lateral, that is?

I get the name of the puzzle. I just can't seem to make my ends meet.

There is no need to reverse anything - just find what you need to add on to the end to allow you to tag an appropriate word to the front.

So I must use two words

Would a curt amphibious sea mammal do the trick?

You mean a Terse Seal? Well, it tells me that your sequence is almost certainly right. However, the "Terse Seal", whilst allowing you to go full circle is far more than the single word I have come up with

Don't start with the "T" - go back a little bit. You will know when you have the word - it is appropriate

Ah, the new word introduces a letter not found in the word before
or the word after, unlike the others in the challenge?

Very appropriate though. Nice.

this puzzle could go on forever :0

Hmmm, not good to break the rule that was used in every single word connection, I think.

Who said it was a rule? ;-)

Sounds like you both have the answer though - well done!

As there hasn't been much activity here, I think I'll post the solution:

I am going to take you on a journey. We start at a table (ALTAR), and travel by a blue box (TARDIS). The journey is very poor (DISMAL), but it will take us to an island (MALTA). There we find nothing feral (TAME), only a musical beat (METER).

If you enjoyed this journey, what do you need to keep it going?

The answers can be combinied to make a chain: AlTarDisMalTaMeter. To make it last forever, you need to make it a closed loop. You could add a few words (Terse/Seal would do it), but the simplest is just adding a single letter: "N". That way, you can spell ETERNAL, a rather appropriate word for the context of the puzzle
