    Here's a line from the Alan Sepinwall comments section that I thought was interesting.
    I remember Rory stating his age but didn't think it was relevant enough to do the math.

    Also, I think it's fair to assume that they have had many adventures not chronicled on the show. Rory made a comment about aging faster than those around them on Earth-- this would imply years of time spent with the Doctor outside Earth's standard timeline.

    So does Rory count only time spent on earth toward his age? Or does he count time in the Tardis and other planets as well (assuming the Doctor returns them within hours of when he fetches them)? Has he lived 31 years, but is living 22 years after his birth on Earth? Or is he living 31 years after his birth on Earth and is actually much older?

    If I had to guess I think that'd be 31 years if he'd lived continously on earth. IOW the age he gives all the time to be consistent with his driver's license and other paperwork.

    I assume he'd have to stop and think about it longer if he tried to figure out and use his personal timeline age; rather than his "born in 1981" age.

    So that's how they can have jobs and kids and stuff and still run off with the Doctor whenever he comes around. They just come back where they left off. Cool.

    He lived from Roman times up through the end of the Universe. He's at least a couple thousand years old in lived experience.

    They go into this on the show from last night. The one with the cubes.

    True-- but that wasn't even his own body from before the reboot-- much less his rebooted body. Granted, somehow he retained the memories, so it's fair to consider-- just doesn't count toward him saying he is 31 years old (obviously).

    Interestingly that makes his "life experience age" greater than the Doctor's, despite being physically younger.
