    Hi all, I hope everyone is doing alright at the moment. Just wanted to share this lovely new mini-episode written by Steven Moffat (apparently the last of the semi-official Doctor Who Lockdown stories): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOJ0OU6Odh4

    And also, for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet (it doesn’t seem to have been posted on here), The…[Read more]

    This sounds like it will be huge – a new multi-format story to be released over the course of twelve weeks later this year: https://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/time-lord-victorious-a-new-multi-platform-adventure?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=time_lord_victorious&utm_content=news

    And here’s a new Eleventh Hour prequel! https://twitter.com/StevenWMoffat/status/1246123045716144130

    @jh3ss3000

    Ah sorry, I thought from your first question that you were saying River had been previously stated to be the Doctor’s mother.

    I hadn’t really thought about the bassinet before but that’s a good question. I suppose it’s possible that River could be Tecteun, but that would be a huge bootstrap paradox. She was brought up by Madame…[Read more]

    @jh3ss3000

    I think you’ve got your Doctor backstory a bit mixed up. River is the Doctor’s wife, not her mother.

    As for your sixth question, I don’t think the story is a complete lie, but it’s certainly possible that the Master was partially lying or not telling the whole truth. One possible theory is that the Timeless Child is actually the…[Read more]

    There’s another new short story on the Doctor Who website, this time by Pete McTighe: https://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/doctorwho/entries/0f866ddb-21fd-47e0-80c2-0f7da6ac64a8

    Happy birthday @craig 🙂 Sorry you’re having to spend it alone but I hope you have a good day anyway!

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Day of the Doctor

    That was great, I really enjoyed watching it again. It’s only been less than a year since I last watched this episode but I’d forgotten quite how brilliant it is. I loved Strax’s introduction video too, that was hilarious.

    Also, this quote from @bluesqueakpip in this thread, four and half years ago, has aged remarkably well. 😉

    At least thirteen.…

  • I’m definitely in the minority here but I prefer watching shows over the course of several days/weeks rather than binging them. I almost always feel like going and doing something else after watching just one episode of a show, even if it’s short. (Though it can sometimes be a bit frustrating waiting a whole week between episodes if I’m really…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip

    Oh right, I must have forgotten the explanation of Barton. I wonder if he’ll be back at some point, seeing as he got away at the end of the episode.

    That’s true about the Master but I still think there should have been at least an acknowledgement that he was trapped last time we saw him, instead of him just showing up and nobody…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip

    The Police Box TARDIS can be explained as the Hartnell Doctor ‘stealing’ his previous TARDIS – without knowing that she was the TARDIS he’d used before. It actually fits better with Sexy’s comment that ‘she stole him’ if she’d known the Doctor in his/her pre-mind-wipe incarnations.

    Mm, that’s definitely possible, and would fit in qu…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @nightingale Yeah, I think it would be a interesting choice for a new Doctor to be introduced before starting her proper tenure. Especially because we still don’t know much about who Lee and Gat are, so it would be really interesting to get to know them throughout this Doctor’s era with the foreknowledge of what happened to them in Fugitive of the…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @nightingale

    Hi! I’m glad you like the theory 🙂 I’m sure there’s a few holes in it but the same can be said about pretty much any theory at this point.

    That said, Ruth was on the run from Division-looking Time Lords such as Gat, which would appear to pin her down to her time in the Division in her youth.

    That’s true, but it’s possible that Ruth…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    I was just thinking, it seems a little improbable that there are all these past versions of the Doctor wandering around in time and space, and yet the Doctor, in their current life, has never encountered any of them until this series. That made me wonder, maybe the Timeless Child (i.e. the Doctor pre-Hartnell) was put in a time lock before being…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @jimthefish I don’t agree that this storyline is designed to make room for a Doctor Who Extended Universe, because such a thing already exists. As I’m sure you know, there are hundreds of Doctor Who books and comics, and a fair few video games too – and that’s before we mention the ridiculously prolific Big Finish. The pre-Hartnell regenerations…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @davros I haven’t seen much of pre-2005 Doctor Who yet so there’s a lot of those that I don’t recognise, but I know #11 is a Dreg from Orphan 55, #12 is clearly Gallifrey but I’m not sure what the shapes in the foreground are, and #19 is the Pting from The Tsuranga Conundrum. I recognise #15 but can’t think who she is. I’ve seen some people on…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    I do feel though that it is hugely ironic that a scene that was intended to establish that the Doctor had limits to his regenerative ability is now used in a huge retcon to establish the Doctor is immortal with no limits.

    Do we actually know that the Doctor is immortal though? For all we know, when the Doctor’s life was restarted, they could have…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    I hope the next series makes it clear that the reason the Doctor is so different, personality-wise, to most other Time Lords is not because she’s the Timeless Child, but because she’s the Doctor. I don’t think it would send a very good message to the audience if the only reason she decided to escape from being a puppet to the Time Lords and…[Read more]

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @lisa I think it was ‘For services to the Division’!

  • BadWolfAlice replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    @miapatrick Hmm, that’s true. The memories that the Doctor saw of the Timeless Child could have been projected into her mind by the Master, perhaps, like he apparently did with the Brendan thing (not that there was any indication from the Doctor that she was receiving those images, which was odd).

    By the way, was it explained why the Doctor’s…[Read more]
