    Well i didn’t see that one coming! i know there are comments about how can the master now be female? lets not forget a timelord can be whoever he/she wants to be! don’t forget the Corsair actually swapped genders too!
    I think this new version of the master/ missy and yes im confused now… will bring a new sinister edge to a classic character!
    I think i need a nice lie down now! 🙂

    It bugs me that I’ve become one of those annoying people who complain about every episode but Moffat has really backed me into a corner this year

    I assume we are going to be told how Missy/The Master has access to Time Lord technology since they are lost at the moment somewhere. If so, where’s his/her TARDIS?

    YEASSSSSSSSSS I GOT IT RIGHT, maybe not the background but it’s the master

    When Missy said “You left me,” I thought it was Susan. I then wondered why she was kissing him and thought of Romana. Why would the Master say the Doctor loved him (/her)?

    That was all explained in The End of Time.

    My explanation (not sure if its 100% correct):

    In the End Of Time, the Master sacrificed himself to defeat the Time Lords and send them back into the Time War to burn in the final moments. However it was revealed in the Day of the Doctor that Gallifrey was never actually destroyed: only removed from time somewhere. Therefore even before this episode aired we knew that the Master was alive somewhere with them. Hence, the Doctor also had this knowledge, but hasn’t yet found Gallifrey, so according the Master ‘left him there’. No idea what caused him to regenerate. 🙂

    I’ve just remembered when the master was last in DW and he died but at the end a woman’s hand picked up his ring. At the time I thought it was Saxons wife but now we know.

    Well, when did the doctor leave the master? He left Romana, I mean, the master’s good now. What caused him/her to regenerate?

    When a Time Lord regenerates, it can be any gender, no matter which one they had before

    I can’t believe it! What a shock! I thought it was the Rani right up until it was revealed!

    Still though… Could Moffat just have fooled everyone?

    Not the Master, not the Rani.

    Either Clara or Romana – final guess

    But still have the nagging Valyard in my head due to the blatant name drop in the previous series.
