Gallifrey won't return straight away and the revival is celebrating its 10th year in 2015. It's pretty much nailed on.
3 days, 21 hours ago on Will There Be a 10th Anniversary Special for the Revival?
You see I think the question is being read out of context. a better question would be "who says the doctor is NOT 100% alien?" My Great grandad was Scottish that makes me part Scottish (a very small part) and as such if I am asked my nationality I say English, but I'm not 100% English by blood. The Doctor could be the same identifies himself as gallifreyan but could still be part human. That's what Moffat is getting at and I don't think it has ever been said he is 100% alien just that he considers himself alien.
1 week ago on Moffat: Who says the Doctor is NOT human?
I've long held the theory that they are humans who adapted to their environment.
Madame vastra said "your people became who you are due to prolonged exposure to the time vortex"
It's possible a future human colony colonise a planet and call it gallifrey. This planet falls into the time vortex and the human there evolve over millions of years and gain super intelligence which eventually develops time travel and regeneration
Over time they forget their human heritage and it's kept a secret. The Doctor stumbles on this secret and that is why he defends the earth so much. If humans are wiped out before they can go out into space properly then the paradox would be catastrophic.

It didn't invalidate anything. If it invalidated anything then surely it would invalidate everything from the war doctor up to Matt Smith in the day of the Doctor.
we know the doctor forgets anything that happens when a senior doctor is present so therefore to the war doctor, Eccleston, Tennant and most of Smith they thought they blew up everything. In the 50th we learn what actually happened that day and only the Smith Doctor's know they tried to do something different.
However only Capaldi Doctor knows if they are successful or not (due to him being the senior doctor at the time) and where it was put. The curator told Smith they saved it but not where.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Why Bringing Back Gallifrey Is Right…
Great article. On the point of the daleks constantly returning, I think this was addressed in the 50th as well. When they changed their mind. Matt Smith said "we have something the daleks doesn't know about, because if they did they would SEND FOR REINFORCMENTS"
Don't forget this is fighting over gallifrey. The daleks would send a large proportion of their "units" and call for reinforcements in needed.
Or maybe some saw the Doctor's and decided to get their shiny metal salt and pepper shaker asses outta there. Surely some would notice 13 flying police call boxes knocking around. Some will get caught in the crossfire but I don't feel it's too farfetched that some survived and created more daleks.
Next year is the 10th anniversary of the reboot. I've got a feeling it will be resolved in a special.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Series 8 Filming: Finale Clue
Maybe it will be an earlier incarnation of the master. Who witnesses the doctor become the valeyard in the finale (and only for the finale) which is how he knew it would be between his 12th and last final incarnation
don't forget they said "between" his 12th and 13th regeneration (13 was the maximum so therefore his "last") . To be in between that it would have to be during his 12th face that he becomes the valeyard.
They can't bring the master back from the dead yet again, he'dbe up there with Rory on cheating death.
1 month ago on Series 8: Master Finale Rumours
Long day filming. The first 4 photos the shadows point one way and the next 3 they point the other way.
The slip of paper could be a note from a Villain
Or maybe he's having a midlife crisis and he's activated "sport" mode and not sure how to turn it off.

I've got a feeling she will be busking and gets intrigued when the Doctor and Clara (and whoever else) runs past and she follows and gets involved in the shenanigans.

Also, maybe a few years down the line she gives birth to a little girl called Susan................
2 months ago on Another New Companion for Series 8?
Anybody else get the feeling this "Courtney" will be insanely clever and turn out to be the Doctor's daughter Jenny?
I know Jenny regenerated and stayed the same but maybe further down the line she "learns" how to change her face or maybe she can only heal the part of her body that is damaged. A head wound would changer her face.
That way it would be even more similar to an unearthly child
The theme is iconic. Maybe have the Tardis just appear and not materialise and put the sound of a popping toaster over it or have it materialise to the noise of a microwave oven and have it ping when it's materialised.
A "re imagining" of the theme tune is good changing it altogether is bad. The Doctor who theme tune played on a guitar with drums would be good especially if the doctor is now fiercer and darker.
Think of the simpsons TV show. They changed parts of the opening sequence but kept the chalkboard bit and Maggie going through the till etc
To change such an iconic theme tune would be just wrong.
Well that's opinion anyway

I think Jack comes back to life because he has to deliver the message to the doctor and has other tasks to do and Tardis essentially made him a fixed point and thus if he dies it's a paradox so the universe gives him life each time he dies to stop the universe imploding die to the paradox.
4 months, 1 week ago on River Song & Captain Jack: Five Favourites
I think the main Villain will be that Danny pink chap. Except he doesn't know it yet. He's actually a zygon. Possibly.
I really like the weeping angels. You don't have to think too hard to explain the statue of liberty moving. 1. It's clearly night time, not many visitors. 2. If you look what that noise was and see a gigantic mean looking statue in central manhatten you are gonna run and hide.
There are still possibilities why it's not feasible but it's one of those where I'll ignore it just for the idea that the angels have taken over the statue of liberty and it's moving.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Speculating on Series 8′s “Big Bad”
Anybody thought he could be tied into the explanation of Capaldi being all over the whoniverse?
He could have seen Clara come and go with the doctor yet in one episode he sees John Frobisher with he (ie the Doctor) He could be frobisher's nephew or a relative of the children.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on A Study of Pink: Speculation on Danny
I suppose for the Karen Gillan bit they could do the same as what they did for that Gwen Cooper character. She was the ancestor of the character she played previously.
Although I suppose with the doctor it might need a bit more explanation than that.
Maybe the gallifrey race is actually a human colony from the future. It was stated in a good man goes to war that his people came to be who they are after long exposure to the time vortex. The whole planet could have fell through the vortex to the beginning of time. Which is how they existed before humans.
Maybe that's his next big secret and the reason he protects the human race the way he does. Otherwise it's one massive paradox because if the humans are wiped out so must the time Lords.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Some Theories on Capaldi’s Familiar Face
Just Googled it, yeah you are right I got my wires crossed a bit
I thought it was said that the phone call was made to see if his theory would still be able to work now.
Because they want to be clever.
It does beg the question as to how long they knew about Capaldi being the Doctor for the old head writer to have a theory about how he is other people.
Maybe the real caecilius and John frobisher is killed by the great intelligence when he enters the Doctor's time stream before Clara got there. So he then has to go back and replace them with himself using a perception filter, which the 10th doctor can see through.
Now I think the memory sync doesn't work if the younger doctor has no idea the older doctor is there.
Also in the fires of pompeii Karen Gillan makes an appearance. How will they explain amelia pond being there?
It'd be great if that's where the angels took her and Rory although it would make the headstone at the end of that episode weird.
