The Sun's Gone Wibbly

Okay, so here's something I've been noticing for quite some time now: they've mentioned solar flares far too many times.

Solar flares have received at least four mentions: in Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways, in The Waters of Mars, in The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People, and in The Wedding of River Song. In The Wedding of River Song, it turned out to not actually be solar flares, but they still received a mention. There might have been other mentions as well, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. There could very well have been a mention of solar flares in every season, but I can't really remember. There were probably also mentions of them in Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

I think we're going to see an explanation of this at some point, or at least another mention of them. I think there's something building extremely long–term here, something all the way back to Series 1. Someone is probably messing with the Sun, causing solar flares. Whatever it is, I don't think it's done yet. I might just be overthinking it, but this is Doctor Who, and everything means something.
