    Also what does this actually mean for Susan? The Dr’s Granddaughter

  • Vervain replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    Also if Tecteun was gallivanting around the universe pre-Timelord era in an “old slow ship” – given they managed to explore many galaxies, find a boundary and the “timeless child”, travel some more whilst the timeless child grew up a bit, get back to gallifrey (for mini-master and mini Doctor to have a fight over a toy?!) discover regeneration?…[Read more]

  • Vervain replied to the topic The Timeless Children

    Hated it – it makes no sense. Literally the whole story is full of holes larger than the boundary. As a story it isn’t even internally consistent.

    @julianantony Not sure how you can say that is hasn’t ruined any history.  Even if Tecteun renamed themselves Rassilon there are still several history breaking issues. Namely that by removing the…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave

    There has been a reference to something like the Cyberium in “Who” before–in “Tomb of the Cybermen” with the Troughton Doctor. And the current crop of Cybermen have a similar look/design as the Cybermen from from “Tomb of the Cybermen

  • Vervain replied to the topic Ascension Of The Cybermen

    OMG

    The Cyberium reminds me of Silver Nemesis – aka Validium the living metal created by Omega and Rassilon as the last line of defence for Gallifrey

    Cybermen eventually appear wherever humans are – and the universe thanks to the web of time is more likely to have human shaped creatures evolve in it

    I agree with the Utopia vibes: Cyber-drones + Toclafane are flying heads after all

    I have a few theories:

    Utopia.

    Brendan + Koshamas are both precursors to Professor Yana (he with the desire to serve and protect those in his care as well as apparently being found as a child on a beach with nothing but a watch)

    His minders are following the…[Read more]

    Dear @drwhoopinion

    Congratulations on your appointment to the role as a personal reality paradox & difference engine.

    You manage to say something I totally agree with only to then have me vehemently disagree with your reasoning once you explain why you think so.

    I ask you to re-evaluate this statement which you seem to have posted without a…[Read more]

    “They lied to us. The founding fathers of Gallifrey…everything we were told was a lie. We’re not who we think, you or I.”

    let’s unpack this – who were the founding fathers of Gallifrey as far as the Timelords are concerned-

    Rassilon – power hungry megalomaniac so powerful they locked him up inside a tower as he was apparently immortal. He is bac…[Read more]

    The dr’s tardis phallic? With all the yellow crystals? Same as on her sonic – it reminds me of the substance created by the Ux

    Well as the War Doctor said to 10 & 11

    “They’re screwdrivers. What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?”

  • Vervain replied to the topic Spyfall part 2

    @syzygy

    what’s left of what came before is the sisterhood of karn who barged in and stomped about like they owned the place in hellbent – revelling each time Rassilon’s authority was further undermined

    Hello – I’m Sal, I live in London am 37 at time of writing and I’ve been watching since the mid 90’s – furtively exchanging vhs’s at school.

  • Vervain replied to the topic Spyfall part 2

    @syzygy with regards shattering of psyche I’ve an even more bonkers theory than that which ties the Timelords to the Weeping angels via the Pythia and the Sisterhood of Karn…

     

    so here goes:

    I’ve been thinking and here are some jottings – please give me your views – not sure it’s all consistent but anyway:

    We know the Timelords use renegades to maintain plausible deniability- Celestial Intervention Agency for example. Or promising the Master a new regeneration cycle in the 5 Doctors.

    So anyone else think the kasavins gaffe looked similar to the Matrix cloister?

    or that the Master when transported there seemed to be wearing a clerical collar a la Rev. Magister?
