Gallifrey...no more

Postby George Agdgdgwngo » Tue Nov 04, 2014 10:50 pm

I was quite excited that the Doctor might go on a journey after The Day of the Doctor to find Gallifrey. New adventures and a story arc that would mean something. Back to original story telling...

But no...

And how do you know that, now we've established the character of the new Doctor which was the main function of his first season, that won't now be the season-arc for Series Nine???

It would certainly be a nice idea to have some season arc that was a bit more integral to each story. They often feel bolted on just for the sake of having one, in the tradition of "Bad Wolf".

He even referred to himself as the last of his species again a few weeks back. WTF was that about?!

Maybe that was a special power of the 9th Doctor. :roll:

Or maybe that's just another thing Moffat has chosen to ignore.

Well the Doctor never had that power before when the Master was hiding before RTD came along, Kings Demons would have been well diffrent. Doctor sniffs air 'oh bugger, the blooming Master is here again'

He didn't say he would know if the Master was about. He said he would know if other Time Lords were still alive. We have no reason to doubt this because prior to 2005 there were other Time Lords.

I believe this particular idea was introduced by fandom to explain why Pertwee recognised Anthony Ainley in "The Five Doctors". RTD simply made it canon.

The 2nd Doctor and the War Lord both immediately recognized one another as Time Lords despite not personally knowing one each other in The War Games.
