    Trust me, I feel even stranger. I’ve found fault with almost every episode this season, even ones I mostly enjoyed, and have gotten tired of Steven Moffat, even though he was in charge for the Eleventh Doctor, who was My Doctor.

    The Doctor mentioned that his friend, the Corsair, was a girl several times in The Doctor’s Wife.

    The Doctor didn’t exactly help him in The End of Time, did he?

    It is a refernece to the BBC proms, The 11th doctor and clara used them to get into the albert hall yet it had side affects, making the doctor bald.

    Anyone see the books on the shelf? One is “hyper scape body swap tickets”. Any ideas??

    Isn’t the original master dead? John Simms version died. Then using his ring etc a new master was resurrected by the woman in the prison. Technically this master went back to gallifrey. So is missy some how a regeneration of the master who died? (Maybe after the ring was taken) or a regeneration of the master who returned to gallifrey?

    We never found out who owned the tardis on top of James cordon’s flat. Maybe that was the master’s?

    If The Doctor changed gender what would Susan call the character after 50 years?

    I thought that too before switching to the rani.

    Gender regeneration, what a load of cobblers.
    An insult to all previous actors.

    Or indeed vice versa.LOL imagine the sort of conversations if we could a Gallifrey version of “Coronation Street”:”I used to like you before you regenerated into a woman.”

    If he presses delete it will delete all his emotions making him ready to be upgrade to a Cyberman.

    Would be a bit weird for a gallifreyan kid of his dad turned into a mum..

    That character is referred to in “Shada” which has never been made as an actual official TV episode and as being a “big strapping bloke” killed by House in “The Doctors Wife” at last regeneration.

    So I take the view that the TV series is ALWAYS canon and that aint canon until we see it done/explained in canon.


    November 2nd, 2014 - 1:12pm

    the rani was abandoned but the master was NOT

    Think that its far simpler than that.The dead’s consciousness goes into a receptacle (the actual Nethersphere?) the Doctor recognised as Time Lord technology.When Danny’s consciousness is in it he’s being asked to by pressing delete to consent to his consciousness being downloaded and altered-as a Cyberman in this universe.

    Thats what I think Missy/The Master meant by saying why didn’t anyone think of creating Cybermen from Cyberspace before.

    The Corsair did it loads.

    As far as I am aware Timelords/Timeladies switching genders has never been established before as premise and other than if that means the Doctor could also switch genders that would appear to have certain implications.

    Does that mean Gallifreyians could in a number of regenerations be fathers/mothers,grandfathers/grandmothers,uncles or aunts? Unless something else still at work is yet to be revealed here.

    No need, CJ, he was resurrected by the Timelords at the beginning of the Time War meaning he still has 10 (I think) left

    Heres my theroy on what the delete button means. Danny died on real earth but in parralel earth he is still alive so my theroy is that the delete button means that the cybermen are parralel earth cybermen and can delete and so can come and delete danny but in paralel earth danny is unharmed so then clara can go to parralel earth and live with danny so that is my theroy

    You don’t understand do you? It was the woman in the prison. Everything about that was explained in the end of time!

    that would be unreal

    I thought it was Romana for a few seconds gone barmy and seeking revenge on The Doctor.

  • Obsie

    November 2nd, 2014 - 10:12am

    Then how’s it managed to fit round it, Missy gained a TARDIS, unless from Gallifrey in a pocket universe, escaped and left the Time Lords still stuck there? I hope there’s some kind of explanation. Anymore ideas guys?

    Here’s hoping John Simm will return next episode for like a flashback to show the regeneration…
