    Here’s one:

    The Doctor had already been to Trenzalore…….so how did he not recognise it when he arrived there the second time?

    Shouldn’t the UPS (Universal Positioning System) on the TARDIS still have it saved in its memory?

    I’ve still only watched once….on iPlayer after a long and hectic Christmas day at about 1 in the morning.

    I enjoyed it but I do have some questions.

    1. How old do we think the Doctor is now? He was 1200 in The Day of The Doctor, waited 300 years for Clara the first time to return, but looked a HELL of a lot older comparatively the second…[Read more]

    Dammit Juniper Fish! Just when I thought my theory had some legs you go and remind me that we did see Gallifrey burning in “The End of Time”.

    I’m not the biggest fan of retconning. I think that’s why I’d be much happier to learn that Gallifrey never did burn. In terms of storytelling I’m always happy to believe whatever you tell me. I just hate…[Read more]

  • I hadn’t thought of that Thommck – but you’re right! It is ¬†Moffet’s style to raise as many questions as he answers.

    That would be a great way to kick off Capaldi’s reign and ensure the message boards keep buzzing throughout his tenure!

    That’s a good point Geoffers, that’s a fully fledged bastard of a good point (10 points if you can name that movie!)

    There is no way that that conversation could have happened twice.

    The only way it all makes sense to me in a linear sense is this.

    The War Doctor takes the Moment into Clark Kents Barn and begins trying to activate it. Now do you…[Read more]

    That thought had occurred to me too Jim. The Timelords are an ancient race that have been around for millions of years….

    …..surely in all that time there must have been at least one other Doctor that decided to take the name Doctor!

    My Timelord knowledge is sparse compared with you fine folk on here but I always imagined that there is a…[Read more]

    I have just read this whole topic, all 5 pages. There are some truly inspired ideas in here so I’m hoping someone can clear this up for me…

    Trenzalore is the final resting place of the Doctor. I took this to mean that if he runs for another 1,000 or 50,000 years, regenerates once more or 100 times more that this, at the end of it all is still…[Read more]
