    I thought she could have been Susan’s grandMOTHER

    I know. I thinks she’s the best choice for the role. She’s like John Simm and Roger Delgado all in one. With a bit of Anthony Ainley(please tell me I spelled his name right if not I’m sorry )

    The Dark water cliff-hanger was excellent but I know how the Danny pressing delete will be resolved. he does press delete as there was pictures from Death in Heaven showing Clara tap a cyberman saying you know its me. Presumably that’s Danny.

    Doctor Who has NEVER been big with continuity. For example, in The Daleks, it was established that the Daleks gradually mutated into what they became, but in Genesis of the Daleks, their origins are changed, and it’s a mad scientist who genetically engineers them.

    I liked the homage to Troutons, Invasion but the rest of it was pants. Maybe the Doctor will regenerate into Rowan Atkinson next. That would tie in with the gender swapping premise at least when he finally turns into Joanna Lumley.

    I’ve been a DW fan since I was a kid. Watched every available episode at least 3 times over by now, probably more. Since Steven Moffat took over the series has gone from bad to worse. It’s not the acting particularly but the storylines that are just so groan inducingly inept. Oh the moon’s a great big egg. You’d think the Silurians would have noticed some great space thing coming to lay an egg and not thought it was a huge asteroid on a collision course with Earth. No continuity with established Who. The little hints about turning the Doctor into a woman have been rife and it’s ridiculous. How could any society exist where you marry a person of one gender only for them to swap to the opposite gender at some time down the line? It would be total chaos. Divorce rates would be sky high. Who would get custody of the kids, the mum or the dad/mum whatever? Would the original mum then change into a bloke, a mum/dad? The CSA would’ve had a field day. Perhaps the Master still has some of his abilities left from being the Keeper of Traken and merged with a woman like he did with Tremas, Nyssas dad?

    It’s definitely stated in The Doctor’s Wife that the Corsair was a woman at one point (and just to point out, The Corsair had never been mentioned before that, definitely not in Shada).

    The point is also repeated in The Night of the Doctor where the Sisterhood of Karn offer the Doctor a female form for his ninth incarnation.

    If you think it is weird or disturbing, it gets worse because it happens in clownfish in real life… so Nemo’s dad should have been his mum by that point in the movie…

    Gallifrey still exists, we already know about that, however there is a gap in the story in The End of Time, so it is possible the Master was never “sent back” to Gallifrey in the first place (namely because he was never there to be “sent back” in the first place, so it’s possible he just slipped out the door while the Doctor was passed out and Wilf conveniently forgot to mention it).

    Like TheHostProdouctions said in his episode review on YouTube that was Jon Pertwee and Rodger Geldago , David Tennant and John Sim and Derek Jacobi and Paul McGann and Eric Roberts and Peter Davidson , Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy with Anthony Ainley at one point ( not physical or anything like that just in previous regrnarations.)

    Oh yeah… I forgot the kissing!

    But Susan was his granddaughter… That’d be very disturbing has she been calling the Doctor her boyfriend, and she kisses him. It would make no sense, nor would it be right for Missy to have been Susan.

    I thought it was Susan initially. Angry at being left behind by her grandfather. Not sure all fans would have got that it was the rani – only die hard fans – and it’s not like she was a truly memorable character.

    My jaw dropped when the master was revealed (or is it the mistress now) but somehow im disappointed I hoped it would of been The Rani.

    Isnt this evidence of Gallifrey still existing if the Master is still alive?

    Personally think its the master after last of the time lords, after he refused to regen the doctor cremated him so maybe he appeared in heaven? and this is how this happened. if that’s the case Missy wouldn’t even recall End of time because that master was a copy

    Will watch the episode again whenever but was probably thinking at the time that was all silly in all the dialogue there was about the Cosair and wouldn’t be done in practice for the can of worms it might open up for long term series credibility.

    Moffat just couldn’t make Missy the new Rani or something else altogether!

    This could be the master meeting out of order with the doctor,it’s moffat after all,the doctor could abandon the master in the future some time

    It was implied that the TARDIS on top of Craig’s flat was the Silence’s from The Lodger.
