@tom colman @TheDreamer @gunslinger19 I think you missed my point. The events were time locked - or should be, which isn't necessarily the same, but let's assume that they were... The aforementioned events were not happening back when the Doctor was a child. Even if it was on Gallifrey, that doesn't mean the time lock was there at the time of the Doctor's childhood. If the whole of Gallifrey's history was time locked from beginning to end, how did Time lords travel to it and from it before the time lock was activated? It's not like they could travel in and out of the time lock, they were trapped inside it. "But we're still trapped inside the Timelock, sir. The link is nothing more than a thought, an idea." Nothing can get in or get out of the Timelock.

@YaelMoise I took that to mean that he'd prefer if if she kept him company in his travels rather than her going on a date and leaving him to travel alone. He's not interested in her in a romantic sense, he's interested in her company. Maybe he worries that she might stop travelling with him? Finding the most thrilling destinations and such might be is idea of keeping her interested in sticking around, lol.

Then you also have fans of classic who don't like such and such classic era, so there's plenty more combinations possible. It's complicated lol. The important thing is that we're all fans and all get the show at our own level of knowledge and understanding.

@tom colman @gunslinger19 "These events should be time-locked. We shouldn't even be here." Not "it"... the events are time locked, the events are part of the time war and the time war not just on Gallifrey.

Lovely story, I enjoyed if very much. Good plot, good pace, some really nice shots, good music (I rarely notice the background music so, for me to take notice of it, it's gotta be good lol :P ) interesting characters I wouldn't mind seeing again (just a bit more fleshed out next time since, here, they were only flushed out as much as the story needed them to be lol), brilliant monster, a fantastic way of starting an episode and a really lovely ending! Not a dull moment. Another 9/10 for me!
Time Heist (9)
Deep Breath (9)
Robot of Sherwood (9)
Into the Dalek (8)
At some point, I think I'll be needing to fine tune my ratings coz it's going to become impossible to rank them if they're all 8s and 9s throughout lol. :D

@jpepelko @TheDreamer @treker68 Hmmm... yeah it would make sense as the Doctor was time travelling and the invaders were just teleporting or trasmating or however they did their shift from silvery blur to fully visible thing, lol.

@treker68 I rewatched the Deadly Assassin yesterday and the Doctor managed to land the Tardis near the Capitol despite the barriers being us. He was noticed, tracked and guards were sent to intercept him as he arrived, but he still landed the Tardis. Unless I missed something...
"Sector seven, sector seven, alert. Unauthorised capsule entry imminent. Repeat, unauthorised capsule entry imminent. Stand to on sector seven."
"Well done, Hildred. An antiquated capsule, for which you get adequate early warning, tranducts on the very perimeter of the Capitol. You are informed that the occupant is a known criminal, whereupon you allow him to escape and conceal himself in a building a mere fifty three stories high. A clever stratagem, Hildred."
In the Invasion of Time, the Doctor had to order K9 to physically take down the barriers so the humans who were trying to invade Gallifrey to pass through, so who knows...

@MrRazza, Latest Result: Mr Pink is Human True... my theory has been that the Doctor would not take the chance of walking miles and miles across a desert with the most dangerous weapon in the universe on his back, no protection and no Tardis, when there were billions and billions of Daleks in orbit attacking the planet and however many on the ground tracking him and generally exterminating the population. Basically, I didn't think he'd take the chance of it falling into Dalek hand/tentacles. But yours is making more sense, him trying to stay out of Time Lords' detection range. His leaving the Tardis behind makes sense that way too, since Timelords could recall Tardises from just about anywhere. He'd have driven to his chosen place, landed and quickly gotten out to minimise the chances of getting hijacked, I guess.
River told Amy in A Good Man Goes To War that it doesn't translate Gallifreyan though.

Oh now, it looks better than I thought it would, lol. I mean, I saw the "next time" clip after Listen and read the synopsis and really didn't have that same excitement about it that I had about the others. Not that I thought it'd be bad or anything, I mostly didn't know what to think of it and it didn't look like my cup of tea. But in this clip it seems interesting!

@The Finn @supermoff is playing Grand Theft Karabraxos... @mrclever Seen them all. Found most of them to be really good. And while the Seeds of Doom, Terror of the Zygons, Talons of Weng Chiang, The Hand of Fear and Planet of evil are among my fave classic episodes, I don't find them scary. Although... The Hand of Fear was quite creepy and The Robots of Death had some rather tense moments... :)

@TheCyberDoctor is Heisting @DaftDalek is Ceter Papaldi The only one that ever scared me was Midnight. I saw it twice and still can't bring myself to watch it again, lol. I mean, I'm the one who could not sleep at all at night after watching Poltergeist years ago, lol... and you will never catch me in front of a Hitchcock a Stephen King film, just the thought of them gives me the creeps lol. But for DW, only Midnight's had that effect on me. I dunno... maybe I'm becoming immune to being scared? Lol. :D

@Gustaff @Regenerated Catterson @RUAZ And the flashback was from Clara's first day at school. She's a year older now. Maybe she has changed since, or maybe she will change... with guidance. She might have some hard times and just need help. We don't know her background.
4 days ago on DWM: Things will never be the same again after Kill the Moon
@Regenerated Catterson @RUAZ We know nothing of her, just saw 2 glimpses of her... Personally, I don't judge people on just a glimpse so I'll wait to see how she turns out to be. If I judged a character from seeing them in 1 episode, I'd never have watched Ace again after how bratty she appeared to be in Dragonfire...
It started in the children's home. Then it was passed down as a family heirloom in the Pink family until Clara took it from Orson Pink when it fell out of his bag, and she then gave it to the Doctor when he was a child. It was always on Earth, until Orson Pink went on his time travel journey. They travelled from the end of the universe back to the Doctor's past, not the other way around. At least that's how I understand it.

How does it go again? The words the 3rd Doctor said... Can't recall the exact sentence. Courage is not to never be afraid, it's being afraid and doing what you have to anyway. Or something like that. ^^;
@tom colman He said in Waters of Mars that the laws of time were his and they would obey him... which I assume meant that the time lords enforced those laws and with them "gone" they weren't active anymore and he could do whatever he wanted. Which he did, by saving Adelaide Brook from death on Mars. Albeit temporarily.

Thanks! I've been trying to come up with a way to write something like this article for a couple of days now, but my knowledge isn't as extensive so, even though I knew the workings of things, I couldn't explain them in depth, and certainly not as brilliantly as you have. Education isn't my strong suit lol.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Making Sense of Listen’s Gallifreyan Gallivant
Yup. :) I didn't hear him say he was an orphan, but I thought maybe I'd just missed it... despite seing it 3 times lol. But yeah exactly, being in a children's home doesn't necessarily mean he is an orphan.
But whether he is or not makes no difference when it comes to having family problems. If he isn't an orphan he could have gone back to his family at some point anyway, like you said. And if he is an orphan, he might have been adopted... But even if he wasn't, he might have brothers or sisters, or uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc...

@The_Horrors_Crimson Not surprised, my first thought when I saw the overnight ratings was that, seeing how they really pushed how scary the episode would be, parents with young children would likely not watch it live when the kids were around, thinking it would be too scary for them and they didn't want to have to deal with nightmares for a week lol, and would watch it at some later time. I think that probably accounted for some of the "drop"
6 days ago on Why The Decline in Overnight Ratings Doesn’t Matter
Ditto except I don't always watch the repeat on bbc3 but instead I watch each episode the night they first air... Then I watch them a 2nd time on iPlayer the same night or the next day, with subtitles... Then I watch them again once more during the week, with audio description for good measure lol. And I often watch a least the last one (sometimes all of them back to back, if I'm home and not busy) before the next episode airs too lol. :D

@Sephora is Scottish now I don't think that only orphans go to children's homes. If social services take a child away from his family for some reason or other and the child has behavioural problems or other problems that prevent him from going into foster care, he'll be sent to a children's home. I think.
I don't remember, did he say he was an orphan? But even if he is an orphan, it could also be problems with siblings... they're family too. Or he could have been adopted eventually... We saw him when he was little... we don't know what his life as a child was beyond that meeting with Clara and the Doctor.

@Baines There's no such thing as an ordinary human... In 900 years (double that, even) of time and space, the Doctor's never met anyone who wasn't important. :P

@sontaran17 I was wondering about that too.

@Gustaff @TheDreamer @TardisBoy No, I wasn't talking about the current Tardis. I meant Tardises in general. Time Lords seemed to have the bad habit of yanking Tardises in without warning, when they thought it was necessary. I'm not saying that's what happened in Listen. It was just a general comment, sorry for the confusion.
I'm still not convinced the barn was on Gallifrey to begin with. I know, the Doctor had no intention of surviving the explosion, but if I was him, I wouldn't have taken the risk of walking for miles and miles in a desert with the most powerful weapon in the universe, while millions of Daleks were blasting the planet and exterminating everything that moved, and looking for him... Would he risk the Moment falling into Dalek hands? Possibly, I suppose, if he was desperate enough... I'm just making assumptions.
But even if he was on Gallifrey, the transductions barriers could be breached - it happened in audios, so I assume it could happen in Listen as well.
@Gustaff @TheDreamer @TardisBoy Unless the Time Lords let them thru.
