    Lots to think about!

    That’s true, but it’s possible that Ruth could be at a later point in her life, and Gat found her by travelling forward in time.

    Gat didn’t seem to know who the Whittaker incarnation was, and vice versa. Gat did know who the Martin incarnation was, and vice versa. But all that might mean is that this wasn’t the…[Read more]

    Hello! I enjoyed your post, very interesting theory. Ruth being a future Doctor would suggest a big misdirect given what we’ve seen, and I suspect a big misdirect is exactly what we’ve been given.

    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…[Read more]

    Hello! I’ve enjoyed reading your thorough and amusingly-worded criticisms (‘fanwank’ will soon pop up in my autocorrect, probably at an unfortunate moment when I’m texting my mother), some of which have bothered me too.

    If regenerative ability is down to the special ability of the Timeless Child, and therefore not exposure to the Time…

    Hello everyone. I’ve been unpacking that last episode for days now and am slowly going mad.

    @lisa : My feeling after Fugitive of the Judoon was that, whatever revelation the Master was going to offer up, it would be an elaborate lie. After the finale, I feel all the more that this is probably partly true. Not necessarily the prehistory of the…[Read more]

    Thanks @JimTheFish. How goes the dam?

    Is this where newbies say hello? If so, hello. If not, may I sit down here on the sofa before I carry on looking?
