    I fiiinally got around to seeing it. Quite enjoyed it! Location and monster were fun, the villain dude worked well within the narrative, and Bill and the Doctor… It’s only been 3 episodes and their relationship has grown on me more than other companion/Doctor relationships have done in an entire series!

    This was a truly amazing episode.

    I put just kidding to stop any abuse, but it wouldn’t bother me if the master was revealed to have been a woman before, might also explain the “he’s my boyfriend” remarks from Missy!

    Actually, they do have a choice. It’s been stated in series 8 and 9 that the Doctor sub-consciously chose his face but even before then, in the Classic series, Romana tested several bodies before settling on the form of Princess Astra, clearly chosing that appearence. It seems some Timelords are better at controlling regeneration. Perhaps Timelords learn how to do this at the academy.

    Pats86. Ok, the E Space thing has merits. By the by, I assume your wife does not frequent this site…or you could be in difficulties (one hour or the next).

    Whorules. Just kidding? Who is Susan’s grandmother? I have wondered that since Doctor 12’s first episode & Missy’s hint of a gift at the birth of… in the magician’s apprentice only deepened my suspicions. Is Missy the first female regeneration of what we think of the Master or was the Master a later aspect of the boy who went mad after witnessing the untempered schism & lived all his/her lives with the “drums” of a Gallifeyan heartbeat? Is the Doctor’s ” lost” first wife actually the Master/Missy?
    Pats86. If a society is gender fluid, there would surely be no problem or stigma to two parents of the same gender. As I understand it, Timelords do not have a conscious choice on how or to what they regenerate. There would be no gain to any Galllifreyian authority to promote any prejudice with regards to what happens when one parent changes gender given that any lawmaker in said authority might be hit be the proverbial bus and wake up as a different gender. Society & culture are always determined by the people who make the laws.

    Maybe the war has been going on for so long through history that they are now fighting the Gold Daleks

    I think it is, I hope it is! I agree, it’s a really nice theme, that seems to really compliment the Bill, and her relationship with the Doctor without getting in the way of a scene.

    It has gallifrian symbols on so maybe a time lord (e.g. the master, the doctor(s)) or something that the time lords trapped because it was too dangerous (e.g john Simms master or the mondasian Cybermen)
